maintaining His Favor...a hard lesson shared across...never down.
the enemy would have US/me to be slave to the system...in some shape, form or fashion.
to Believe that we need the system- on some level.
He showed me a Vision/Dream, however. one that will be a Blessing, Universally.
i pray for the soul that sent me this quote. my prayer is that they might be as Abundantly Blessed as i was by their email. thank you so much to that soul + to the Universe. i am truly humbled + grateful.
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
since i Believe Him/His Word, over all i think i see...
i will keep His Charge. while i pray fervently, without ceasing...
to be better at discerning + hearing and Obeying His Voice + keeping His Commandments, Statutes, and Laws.
which is required that we might receive and keep His Favor.
that said, i have a confession to make, in keeping with His Law.
KJV Proverbs 28:13- He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
been going through it lately...on so many levels.
reaping the fruit of my poor choices/ bad judgment. feeling utterly disgraced, ashamed, and mortified that i disappointed Him/His Word in such a way.
richly earning every bit of scorn + "fake" accusation that comes my way.
recognizing upon reflection that i was backsliding into trying to do things my way in order to speed things along. acting american discovering things while trying to expedite + flip up the game. getting ahead of Almighty while putting myself squarely in the sights of my enemies/frienemies' scopes. folk know who they are-those that appear to pray diligently to defeated lucifer that i choke.
been beating myself up mightily for it, too. to where i almost felt like throwing in the towel on this whole Be a Blessing/ Humanity project.
emphasis on almost.
at the end of the day, it is my fervent soul prayer that Almighty will turn.this.around...
that He/His Word might get the Glory- despite me. 'cause this really isn't about me.
upside, 'cause there always is one= triple portions of humility...
as i pray that He/His Word reveals His Way/best way to make things Right. on all levels. having finally had enough of that "my way" flow.
on a Peace, be still tip, for Real.
as i reach for the Vision/Dream He revealed to me so Clearly.
despite feeling most undeserving + unworthy.
it is also my prayer to truly be Biblical Love, in every possible way- each and every day, with every soul i meet.
+ to line my life completely UP with Him/His Word. in keeping with my Understanding that in order to maintain His Favor, we/i must:
1. Obey His Voice
2. Keep My Charge
3. Keep His Commandments
4. Keep His Statutes
5. Keep His Laws
won't dwell here too much longer.
where you ask?
it isn't required nor wise. especially with my bouts of depression and just sadness, in general, at the condition of His People/my people as i look around.
one day He revealed in His Word that His would be weeping during these times. got so excited for the Understanding of what was happening that i forgot to write it down;(
slow me down please Almighty, in Messiah's Name.
googling His Word that's written on one's heart...
can only take US/me so far;) in order to get some things...
just gotta get in the Good Book.
He'll show me again and i will make sure to write it down and share it at that time, if so led.
switching gears, a bit:
a Light and Blessed soul reminded me of Jonah earlier. an ancestor in our history book that reminds me of me in a major way. Jonah + Peter, with the i do that which i want not to do.
in revisiting the book of Jonah, i was reminded:
KJV Jonah 4:10 - And Almighty saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and Almighty repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
KJV Jonah 4:2 - ...thou art a gracious Almighty, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness...
KJV Proverbs 3:6-7
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Sovereign, and depart from evil.
please be clear...
i don't presume to know what lies ahead. i can't quite see around the corner. but i know He knows. all i know is what's written. though i do pray, in Messiah's Name for a triple portion of Mercy and Grace for US all. Understanding Obedience to Him/His Word is the essential ingredient in all of this.
a tall order for one as obstinate and disobedient as i can be. yet, i pray to be Obedient Love + used mightily...
in His Kingdom that He might get the Glory.
