Evil World

From a spiritual perspective, it doesn't matter where a person lives because this whole world is Satan's kingdom.  He is an equal opportunity abuser and hates everyone.

People can be senselessly killing each other, starving to death in poverty or destroying themselves with money in any country.  The types of suffering in this world are endless and it doesn't matter the location, economic level, race, size, age, sex, etc.

No matter what country people are from, trials and tribulations are the great equalizer.  The only medicine that takes away this pain is the out-of-this-world love that comes from God.

Our only source for this supernatural love comes from Jesus Christ.  He is our equal opportunity Savior because He loves everyone unconditionally. 

When filled with His love, we receive His joy for any circumstances, and all we need to do is abide in Him and let His word abide in us.  Jesus' help is available 24/7 at any location with sincere, fervent prayer.

Perseverance and Maturity

Apostle James said that Christians should consider it a joy whenever we face trials of any kind because this tests our faith which develops the perseverance that makes us mature and complete.  Well, this is a good description of my life right now.

In the last month, I've had sick family members, money disappear, demons show up and not feeling well myself.  I think my Heavenly Father is giving me the opportunity to become mature and complete.

While we get an earthly father, he doesn't always know what is best for us, but our Father God always knows and does what we need to grow spiritually.  It is awesome to be learning things for eternity and not just this brief time here.

Happy Father's Day to my Heavenly Father that loves me unconditionally and always does what is best for me.  Thank You for Your Spirit that guides and protects me 24/7!

Pray For Your Country

This upcoming week I will meet with other Christians to pray for our country at our state's capital.  The Lord wants us to pray for our nation and its leaders.

As Christians, we are in spiritual warfare from a personal to a national level.  The only way we can win spiritual battles is through prayer.

When we link up with Jesus through the power of prayer, we are winners because He already defeated Satan at the cross.  Christ Jesus died and rose again physically from the grave to reconcile everyone who believes in Him with the Creator Father.

So in a relationship with Jesus, we have salvation from our sins and directions to keep us safe from spiritual evil in this wicked world.  Thank You, Jesus, for being available 24/7 any where when we pray to You for help.

So far this year I have lost $200, and I hold on to my money, at least up until this year.  Every time the Lord told me I would lose this money even before it happened.

And every time I disagreed and said that I would be careful and not lose it.  My opinion was based on the past years but the Lord knows the future.

This last time I asked Him what I should do to prevent losing the money when He told me I would lose it. He said to hand it back to the person that just gave it to me, which I did not do.

This time I said that I would be more careful about not losing it, but it was not possible and I still lost it.  The Lord is teaching me that obedience far exceeds any knowledge of the past, the world or human ability.

Obedience takes the desire to put God first and the self control to do it in a relationship with Jesus for His direction and strength.  This is a very uncomfortable but important lesson to learn.

Thank You, Jesus, for teaching me how to become like You!  Jesus is available 24/7 anywhere in the world for spiritual growth, comfort and protection.
