NEVER FORSAKEN OR ALONE

Sometimes we feel forsaken, abandoned, and alone, with no genuine friends, and no family members who is not looking for a handout. Other times you are around people and you still feel alone, and just wish they would go, because they have no positive input into your life. However, God wants us to know that we should never ever feel that way, because even though we don’t see Him in the natural, He is with us, and even though He might be comforting someone else His Omnipresence affords Him the privilege of being anywhere  and everywhere at once. But, whenever you are feeling despondent, forsaken, or abandoned just pick up the good book called the Bible and allow God’s word and His promises to soak into your system, and increase your faith to the point that you find comfort in His word.

God has made many promises to us when we get into funks (or messes) like this, and we must remind ourselves of this daily. For instance He told us in the Old and New Testament that He will never leave or forsake us. It’s written in Deuteronomy 31:6 and says, “Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them (for example: people, problems, loneliness,whatever it is); for the Lord thy God, He it is who doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Then again in Hebrews 13:5 it says, “Let your manner of life be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have; for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” This was not meant for those people only, it’s meant for us today also.

Well if that didn’t make you feel better here is another in Isaiah 43:1 b to verse 2 which says, “…Fear not; for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame scorch thee.” We have evidence of God’s promises fulfilled from the parting of the red sea, and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the fiery furnace, who came out without a cinch (Daniel 3:34-37). These are accounts of people who trust, rely and depended on God for everything, and He never left, forsaked or abandoned any of them as Hebrews 11 validates.

But one of my favorites is 2 Corinthians 4:7-10 which says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”

To God be the glory, praise, honor and thanks for using me to inform you this day. May His Holy Spirit give you the necessary tools needed to grasp and act on His words. And I by the power given to me in Matthew 18:18 and Luke 10:19, I bind the hand of the enemy and its forces, who try to steal this word, and blind your eyes, and harden your heart from receiving this truth and acting upon it. I ask God, the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

THE DEVIL’S HIT LIST

Are you on the devil’s V.I.P list,or his hit list. Let’s face the facts,the devil never loved us,and never will,we are on his hit list,so we could be killed. However, the good news is that he is already defeated, because Jesus went down to hell, so that we could be well; they put Him in a hole, so that we could be made whole. He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and with His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). Because of this the Christian is on the devils hit list, the most wanted, the most troubled; Jesus knew exactly what we would be going through, the hardship, persecutions, ridicules, and insults. That’s why Paul said, ‘Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforted us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them who are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God (1 Corinthians 1:3-4). Most people are duped into believing that once you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord, and Savior, it’s smooth sailing from then on, the devil is a liar, because, that’s when the devil personally put you on a hit list just to make you mess up. No problem, because, that’s when true faith in the God you serve is activated, that’s when you have to know all of God’s promises, like: “Greater is He that is in you, than He that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4), or “He will never leave or forsake us.” (Hebrew 13:5), His grace is sufficient for us; for His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9); We are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37).

Please don’t make the mistake like Job did, thinking he could find comfort in his friends (Job 16:2). There will be occasions where we are burdened beyond measure, above our natural ability, and strength till we are despaired of life. This is why Paul tells us that as Christians, we should comfort each other, with the same comfort, God comforts us with. Paul encourages us to do that because there are believers out there who have never really hit rough waters, or feel abandoned, destitute, and broken, this is the reason why we can’t forsake the assembling of ourselves (Hebrews 10:25) because, this is where the Five fold ministry is activated, to exhort, teach, and edify the body of Christ so that we can be perfect and unified in faith and the knowledge of the Son of God (Ephesians 4:11-12). Now unfortunately, all we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way, and the Lord had laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not His mouth (Isaiah 53:6-7). Jesus paid it all, gave us the victory, the power and authority to tread on serpents, scorpions, and all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19) so let’s stand victorious and triumphantly like the champions He turned us into.

HOW TO OVERCOME

Everything in the Bible teaches us something, warns us about something, and explains to us how others before us overcame. Every person in the Bible went through something to get to where God intended for them to be. However, they overcame every obstacle through their faith, trust, and hope in the God who made the universe.

Over two thousand years ago people had to depend on the prophets and the sacrifice of animals to atone for their sins, unfortunately no man or animal was suitable to take on the sins of the world. Folks it was never Gods intent for His best creation, made in His image and likeness, to be totally destroyed. Therefore, God had to find a suitable person, to be the ultimate sacrifice and show us how He wants us to live, worship Him, honor him, obey Him, how to kick the devils butt, and give us the victory to guarantee eternal life for His children and that is when and why God sent His only begotten A Son named, Jesus Christ.  He is the messiah, savior, advocate, High priest, substitute, healer, lawyer, doctor, redeemer and a whole lot more.

How can we escape, if we neglect, so great a salvation (Hebrews 2:3); O taste, and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the person who trusts in Him (Psalms 34:8). God’s greatest wish is for us to accept the gift of His Son, believe on or in His Son, so that we can have a relationship with Him, so we can be saved, so we can know His plans and will for our lives.

Jesus also showed us how to live in unity, unselfishly, kindly, compassionately, and lovingly. God never intended for us to be at war with each other and  disobey His commands, that’s the devils plans, schemes, and devises to destroy us because he is doomed.

God’s plans is for us to prosper and not harm us; give us hope and a future; not condemn us, but to save us (Jeremiah 29:11; John 3:16-17). The Bible was written as a personal message from God and contains all of His promises and desires for us. He has never lied or broken any of his promises (Numbers 23:19; Hebrews 6:18; 2 Peter 3:9). He speaks to us through the Bible, if only we would listen. When we read God’s promises everyday it should let us want to serve Him, worship Him, adore Him, love Him and obey Him, because it gives us hope and a glorious future to look forward to.

Do you want to be a part of this? Do you want to be His child?  Do you want to know Him? Well go quickly to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. It will be the best thing you ever do in your entire life. Trust me, I am a modern testimony. I give God the glory, praise, honor and thanks for using me to get His message out there. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you will overflow with His love, peace, joy and hope by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Christ name, amen.
