when you have lost it all now

Filed under: family — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — thenonconformer @ 10:00 am
(Eccl 7:20 KJV)  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
 
When you have absolutely nothing, and you have lost it all, everything you had, your friends, money, job, family,  health and you in desperation do now again maybe cry out to God how does he respond next? maybe you won’t know the answer until you walk in these shoes yourself??
 
Now I have been there now a few times and God next responds the same way.. “I will never leave you or forsake you, I will always be there holding your hand”..
 
(2 Cor 1:3 KJV)  Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
 
(Eph 1:17 KJV)  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
 
(Heb 13:8 KJV)  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
 
(2 John 1:3 KJV)  Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
 
and why does God now he God respond  in  this manner of reminding you firstly of his presence ?
 
 God reminds us of his continual presence and nothing takes God by surprise, nothing can prevail against God , (John 21:24 KJV)  This is the disciple which testified of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
 
(Rom 8:28 KJV)  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
 
(1 John 5:19 KJV)  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
 
(1 John 5:20 KJV)  And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
 
We need to refocus on God always..
 
(Exo 33:14 KJV)  And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
 
(Jer 5:22 KJV)  Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?
 
(Jer 23:39 KJV)  Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence:
 
(Ezek 38:20 KJV)  So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
 
(Phil 2:12 KJV)  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
 
Face Life with a positive attitude
 
(Phil 3:1 KJV)  Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.
 
(Phil 4:4 KJV)  Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
 
(Gal 3:5 KJV)  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
 
(Acts 20:21 KJV)  Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:.. But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. – 1Peter 4:12, 13

Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf… Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. – 1 Peter 4:16,19

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. –Revelation 21:4

The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. – Psalms 34:17,18

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. – Psalms 37:24

Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth. Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. – Psalms 71:20,21

This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me. – Psalms 119:50

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. – Psalms 138:7

For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall. – Isaiah 25:4

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. – Isaiah 41:10

When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. – Isaiah 41:17

For the Lord will not cast off for ever: But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. – Lamentations 3:31-33

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: – Philippians 1:6

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. – Psalms 9:10

In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me. – Psalms 86:7

He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. – Psalms 147:3 

What initially ALSO appeared as the most tragic demonic events in my own life  

next, they had  turned  out to be the most blessed event, even prolonging my life.
 
Imagine that I  as an adult in Calgary Alberta was firstly fired from my job because I had refused to cheat, lie, steal on behalf of my firm. Next my sadly unfaithful wife filed for divorce, and she even stole my personal belongings and my 3 children too, even our house next went into foreclosure and was taken over by the bank, so what can happen worse than that?
 

Well next the pastor of the local church tried to kick me out of the local church cause I could not longer give to him, and he for sure falsely was not willing to give in return.. What next?
 
Well for 2 years the lying, pretending local  bad doctors, hospital  could find anything wrong with me too.. even though I knew for sure there was something wrong with me..
 
So I next moved back to my home town, Montreal to another province, Quebec.
 
Shortly the doctors there confirmed the fact that I need quintuplet heart by pass surgery, and they also next installed a pacer, and a  defliberator as well.. thus  prolonging my life much longer than had I strayed in Calgary Alberta.

You see I was working and living in Calgary Alberta in 1982 and for 2 years I had gone to various doctors, I had undergone various medical tests and the doctors said they could find nothing wrong with me specifically, rather it appears they must have known the truth but refused to do anything, for the Alberta government has a policy that they give medical services priority mainly to people born in Alberta. Had my wife not filed for divorce for sure I would have had been dead next there, and when she filed for divorce, we lost our home as the lawyers had seized it  for their future payments, so next I had no choice but to eventually go back to Montreal to firstly get medical help cause I was in continually stomach  pains. By the blood pressure alone the doctor should have know how seriously I was sick, 165/145.. my wife being a nurse she knew right away.. God even told me I was seriously ill.. and he had refused to allow me to work hard.
 
When I got to Montréal and visited the McGill Hospital, the doctors here said I was ok originally, amused me and put me into a bed for 4 weeks and conducted no medical tests at all.. next finally they decided to discharge me, but someone had to sign off on me and they decided to do one test, the echo gram, the technician doing the test next she start to cry, and I asked her why she was crying, she replied that I was too young to have such a serious heart problem, 1/3 of my heart was dead. The next day the doctor said the McGill Hospital  came and told me that there was nothing they could do for me, I would have to go home and get ready to die. But right then at the same time I heard Jesus say “do not worry Paul, it will all turn  out all right”.. so next day the 2 doctors came back and and said they will give me a heart surgery tomorrow, a quintuplet heart by pass. After the heart surgery I was totally normal for 2 weeks but then it seemed to have been inadequate.. the surgery was only partially successful. I was able to walk but I had difficulties in any serious exercise, physical activity.  God told me next he took my wife away cause it was her bad cooking that was killing me, something the dieticians confirmed next too.  He God had now freed me to work on the internet, I have been on the internet actually since computers had first started in the 80’s  both as a political lobbyist on behalf of all Canadians,    as a Christian pastor promoting God’s truth.
 
I had now also wanted to return to Alberta, because I loved the weather and scenery there,so  as I prayed as to why I could not go back there. God told me I he had provided everything I needed in the city of LaSalle Montreal where I was I was even for my medical care. I shortly had a vision. It was a view of Montreal from above, but on the south side of the Montréal, across the river instead was a huge European looking city. I was told I could not cross the south  river, and I saw from the air above the Montreal General Hospital and I was told I would have to go there next. That week my main doctor called and said I would have to go to the hospital to have a defliberator installed for I have a tendency to die in my sleep. So they implanted the medical device and next it significantly improved my breathing.

I was now also basically limited to biking, since walking any long distance was too difficult for me but eventually next even Biking that  was too hard for me, I could not make it up the hill. So in desperation I prayed and told God that. Just after I had prayed the phone rang and a fellow said he had acquired an electric bike he would like to sell me.  I bought it, and it really solved my biking need. I loved it. I could travel at 30 mph and do about 60 miles before I recharge it, bout 2 a week.

Meanwhile I continue on the net daily for hours, generally my mornings at least, writing my messages, replying to letters. I have been happy, fulfilled  with God the last 15 years too. I have been very visibly active on the net as a Christian, even daily writing Bible devotionals to many pastors, college students too. Gladly  here doing the work of the Lord. Although I liked being a pastor of a home church better in Calgary, I loved the daily home , hospital and political visitations too. So as you see there are no complaints here. God let me serve him  more next  instead of having me die. God had said to me also he had let me live cause I had served him..
 
Is 61:1 THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed {and} qualified me to preach the Gospel {of} good tidings to the meek, the poor, {and} afflicted; He has sent me to bind up {and} heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison {and} of the eyes to those who are bound,  Is 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, Is 61:3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion–to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, {and} failing spirit–that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. Is 61:4 And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
 
Is 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. Is 61:11 For as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness {and} justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word].
  
Is 62:11 Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the Daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes [in the person of the Lord]; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work {and} recompense before Him. Is 62:12 And they shall call them the Holy People, the Redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought Out, a City Not Forsaken.

God through Jesus Christ has promised to deliver us from all of sickness, sadness, sorrows, troubles even today, and we can stand on many such  promises in his Word, the Bible. There is no pit that you fall into that is so deep that Jesus now next cannot still help you out off.

 (Jer 17:5 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6   For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 7  Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.8   For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Reverend Todd Bentley versus Republican Mom Sarah Palin

 
  
It is no well kept secret that too many  Bullies, Abusers, selfish, self centered, even professing Christians persons, too often with hidden motives and agendas too,  have been on the internet  using the topic  of the Florida Lakeland Revival Evangelist Reverend Todd Bentley, a latter rain Pentecostal healer too,  to hopefully attract readers to their own sites, and to bring to other persons their own often distorted point of views.
 
Much appreciated too now they rather  have now next refreshingly turned now to a new subject, the Republican Pentecostal Christian Sarah Palin as their main live bait to get  unsuspecting suckers,  readers  to their sites.
 
The new politcal  irony is that the Democrat Obama-Joe Biden alternative, preaching family life and universal health care, middle- and working-class tax relief, comprehensive job-creation programs and education-reform plans, now instead it is Sarah Plain, an amazing woman and an amazing role model instead of them now dominates and examplifies living  a good family life for all to see, and it is Sarah Palin who instead now   dominates the national political presidential  conversation by her self-identification as primarily a typical  working  mom.
 
Yes,  Visible management, Parenthood is on the top political agenda now.  The examplary Sarah Palin has already also inspired many editors to serve up endless stories about work-home balance, coping with teen pregnancy, the care of special-needs children, and the propriety of ambition in striving for demanding workplace responsibility despite the burden of caring for five children at home. For almost  every married adult can relate to a   real-life example of what it means to juggle heavy public and private responsibilities, and all of this now too  easily trumps the Obama-Joe Biden mere  political policy proposals at the water coolers. So unsuprisingly now instead the Obama campaign finds itself  unexpectedly in disarray as it tries to counter the surprisingly Republican working mom Sarah Palin support threat.
 
The past bashing of Todd Bentley has now clearly run out of steam for many especially since admittedly now confirmed  too  he is a typical normal sinful person, a too typical inadequate, bad  pastor, evangelist we seem to find in most denominations, much too many churches still too.
 
So these bad posters or hate mongerers it seems now instead on uplifting Jesus Christ now  some of these bad professing Christian  posters have started  to bash any other professing Christians who access their sites..  wow and unbelievable still too.. forewarned is fore armed.. ..
 
Often these same bashers, posters, critics really are incapable of it, so they   still do not discuss the Bible, or now even post any serious Bible verses, thus they like to remain as the devil’s advocates, the devil’s helpers, critics, working for the devil and not God clearly too.  Yes their old bad habits seem to die hard for them now too..
 
Sarah Palin now  clearly is a more refreshing Pentecostal subject now still too. She is a married mother, a church goer, a good administrator, manager, basically also a a good politician mind you many a demonic persons try to  slander her now too cause they do not like to see someone better than them in office it seems.
  
The nomination of Republican vice President Sarah Palin has also certainly sparked an interest  into yjr Pentecostal religion and more interest  about the personal  life of  Honourable Sarah Palin and we are next going for sure get to see more of this too..  
 
Pentecostalism is now mostly a revived New Testament form of Biblical Christianity. It is now once again a major world wide Charismatic branch of Christianity .
 
The nomination of Republican vice President Sarah Plain has certainly sparked  interest world wide into the Pentecostal, Christian religion, and now many persons world wide as well as in the Americas do seek, do want to know seriously what is difference basically  about this Christian religion from the other existing differing Christian religions.
 
 Many persons want to also know what Sarah plain specifically believes in beside her claim now of being a non denomination Bible believing Christian.  After all a normal,  genuine believer, Christian is a follower of Christ, the Bible and not any specific church, fellowship, denomination too. As to why some of them  they want to know more about her religion it seems it  is also still questionable.. any further reason to bash  her too it seems?
 
And I thought that all of the professing Christians were to be decent, kind, lving persons or is this how you too do now  find out all those that are real christians and those who clearly are not still too?
 
(John 13:34 KJV)  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
(John 15:12 KJV)  This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
(John 15:17 KJV)  These things I command you, that ye love one another.
(Rom 13:8 KJV)  Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
(1 Th 4:9 KJV)  But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
(1 Pet 1:22 KJV)  Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
(1 John 3:11 KJV)  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
(1 John 3:23 KJV)  And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
(1 John 4:7 KJV)  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
(1 John 4:11 KJV)  Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
(1 John 4:12 KJV)  No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
(2 John 1:5 KJV)  And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
 
 (John 8:31 KJV)   If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
(John 13:35 KJV)  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Changing yourself first, positively

Introduction
 
Many a person  has found himself in an unbearable situation, a bad marriage, bad job, or whatever.. and wants to change their circusmanstance.. but you need to see firstly still that it is firstly easier to adapt, to change yourself and often impossible  to try to change others. You still need God’s help to make any changes too.  


   

 

Steps To Reaching Your Destiny – Changing yourself first -positively
by Rev. Rick L. Patterson, Th.D. President  Miami Christian University 9775 SW 87 Ave. Miami, FL 33176-2900  http://mcu.edu/papers/destiny.htm
 
” Today I want to share with you Steps To Reaching Your Destiny. This paper will give you a basic guideline that should give your direction and inspiration about reaching your destiny in Christ.


Step Number One: Choose A Big Dream! ( But first make sure, confirm with God and his Word,  it is God’s dream for you and not  your own)

Many times our lives are filled with planning and thinking about issues that will bring very little significance to our lives. Today I want to challenge you to choose a big dream, strive to reach your full potential and destiny in Christ.

Don’t become so caught up with the small issues of life that you can’t take advantage of the important dreams and opportunities God has for you! Make a decision this morning to take the time to think big! God is a big God!

“If you are hunting rabbits in tiger country, you must keep your eye peeled for tigers, but when you are hunting tigers you can ignore the rabbits.” H. Stern

There are plenty of tigers to go around, don’t be distracted by the rabbits.

Once you have set your faith on a big dream remember those who don’t take chances don’t make advances. Even a turtle doesn’t get ahead unless he sticks out his neck.


Step Number Two: Don’t Waste Tomorrow By Feeding On Your Yesterdays ( you cannot change the past but you can help to work on changing the future for self even .)

(Luke 9:62 NIV) Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

We live is a society of excuses and victims. Everyone is a victim today! I am a victim of my color, my genetics, my physical abuse, my sexual abuse, my finances, etc. It is time for us to stop blaming the past for our present failures and it is time to look forward with the faith and victory of Christ!

(2 Cor 5:17 KJV) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

The more you look backward, the less time you have to look forward! Always learn from the past but invest your time and energies in the future. Never, never, never waste another moment of your life grieving, worrying or regretting the past that Christ h as already forgiven you of and forgotten.

(Phil 3:13 KJV) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

(Phil 3:14 KJV) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

The thing that destroys more people is the continual looking at their past and not looking to their future. You can not go back and change the past but you can go forward and change your future.

Today is the day when I will shake off the shackles of the past and move forward in Christ!


Step Number Three: Always Tell The Truth

T.L. Osborn said, “Always tell the truth, and you never have to remember what you said.” The ninth commandment is, “Thou shalt not lie.” Each Christian who desires to reach their full destiny in God must learn to tell the truth. We must be men and wome n of integrity and honor.

You will never have success in life if you built your future on half-truths and lies!

(Prov 12:22 KJV) Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

(Prov 19:9 KJV) A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

Prov 19:9: Verse 9. Lying is a damning, destroying sin.

(Col 3:9 KJV) Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

(Col 3:10 KJV) And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Seven Results of Lying: ( besides the fact that you tend to delude, deceive yourself next, and you start to believe, act upon your own lies)

1) You will attract liars into your life and business dealings.
(Prov 17:4 KJV) A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
Prov 17:4: Verse 4. Flatterers, especially false teachers, are welcome to those that live in sin.

2) You will lack understanding.
(Psa 119:104 KJV) Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

3) You will never enjoy permanent success.
(Prov 12:19 KJV) The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
Prov 12:19: Verse 19. If truth be spoken, it will hold good; whoever may be disobliged, still it will keep its ground.
(Prov 12:19 NIV) Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
(Prov 21:28 KJV) A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.
Prov 21:28: Verse 28. The doom of a false witness is certain.

4) You will eventually end up in bondage and failure.
(Gal 2:4 KJV) And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

5) You will eventually be punished.
(Prov 19:5 KJV) A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.
Prov 19:5: Verse 5. Those that tell lies in discourse, are in a fair way to be guilty of bearing false-witness.

6) You will become a fool.
(Prov 10:18 KJV) He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
Prov 10:18: Verse 18. He is especially a fool who thinks to hide anything from God; and malice is no better.

7) Your lies will always come back to haunt you.
(Psa 7:14 KJV) Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
(Psa 7:15 KJV) He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
(Psa 7:16 KJV) His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

Determine today to speak the truth!


Step Number Four: Refuse To Walk in Fear and Worry! ( Even in the false submission to the oppressors, perverts, liars too)

Fear and worry are the interest you pay in advance for something you may never own. Worry is the triumph of fear over faith! Worry is the misuse of God’s creative imagination and powers in our lives. Worry literally means to strangle or to choke off. When we worry we are strangling the very hope and faith of our future and destiny.

Fundamentals For Overcoming Worry:

1) Live in day tight compartments.
2) When you face problems:
A: Ask yourself, “What is the worst thing that could possibly happen?”
B: Prepare to accept the worst.
C: Try to improve on the worst.
3) Remember worry literally destroys your physical well being and health.
4) Get all the facts before your allow yourself to worry or fear.
5) Weigh all the facts and make the best decision possible based upon knowledgeable facts.
6) Once you have made a prayerful decision act upon it.
7) Write out and answer the following questions:
A: What is the problem?
B: What are the causes of the problem?
C: What are the possible solutions?
D: What is the best solution?
When you worry and fear you stop the creative powers of God to show you the solutions.

(Psa 55:22 KJV) Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

When you worrying you are diminishing the greatness of God in your life! Don’t worry or fear take them to Christ for He cares for you.


Step Number Five: Choose Your Friends Wisely ( you are always known by the company you keep, so choose, get honest, decent good associates)

We need to be very careful about the kind of people we allow to become our friends. Our friends should be those who inspire us and bring out the best in you.

(Prov 27:19 TLB) A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.

(Prov 13:20 NIV) He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.

We become like the people we associate with! Choose your friends wisely! It is better to be alone than to be with the wrong friends.

(Eccl 4:9 TLB) Two can accomplish more than twice as much as one, for the results can be much better.

(Eccl 4:10 TLB) If one falls, the other pulls him up; but if a man falls when he is alone, he’s in trouble.

(Eccl 4:11 TLB) Also, on a cold night, two under the same blanket gain warmth from each other, but how can one be warm alone?

(Eccl 4:12 TLB) And one standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer; three is even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

Amateurs teach amateurs to be amateurs. If you want success you must decide to choose your friends wisely. You must associate with those who are going to positively influence your life and stand faithfully with you in the times of battle.

Take a moment and look at your friends are they helping you to serve Christ in a greater way or do they weaken your walk with Him?


Step Number Six: Be willing to Change! ( to make some movement now  as well..)

When you quit growing and changing in Christ you have made the decision to fail. This is true in every area of our lives. There are three things you should know about the future:

1) It is not going to be like the past.
2) It is not going to be exactly the way we think it’s going to be.
3) The rate of change will be faster than we can imagine.
(Isa 42:9 KJV) Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

(Isa 42:9 TLB) Everything I prophesied came true, and now I will prophesy again. I will tell you the future before it happens."

If you are truly seeking God and your destiny you will be able to know the future in advance and make the necessary adjustments to adapt to the changes. Always be prepared to change. If you are not changing you are not preparing for the future.


Step Number Seven: If You Know What God Can’t Do You Will Know What He Can Do! ( God he will help next do for you what you cannot do if it is in His Will 

1) God cannot lie.
2) God cannot change.
3) God cannot recall our sins after we have asked for forgiveness.
4) God cannot be the author of confusion.
5) God cannot leave us or forsake us.
6) God cannot go back on His promises.
7) God cannot revoke His gifts.
8) God cannot be pleased without faith.
9) God cannot be defeated.
10) God cannot be too big for our problems.
11) God cannot be too little for our problems.
12) God cannot break His covenants.
13) God cannot revoke His calling in our lives.
14) God cannot do anything contrary to the scriptures.
15) God cannot give anything to a double-minded man.
16) God cannot be forced into an impossible situation.
17) God cannot ignore the praises of His people.
18) God cannot be our problem.
19) God cannot be late.
20) God cannot be weak.
21) God cannot be against us.
22) God cannot be limited or confined.


Step Number Eight: Know That God can  Use You Right Where You Are Today! ( Inspite of who and what you are..)

God always uses willing vessels. God will use you right where you are today. Many people are concerned that they are not qualified to be used by God. God will use anyone who is willing to follow him. 

1) Matthew was a government employee a tax collector who became an apostle.
2) Gideon was a common laborer who became a valiant leaders of men.
3) Jacob was a deceiver who became Israel.
4) Deborah was a housewife who become a judge.
5) Moses was a stutterer who became a deliverer.
6) David was a shepherd boy who became a king.
7) Hoses was a marital failure who prophesied to save Israel.
8) Joseph was a prisoner who became a prime minister.
9) Peter was a fisherman who became the rock.
10) Isaiah was a man of unclean lips who prophesied the birth of Christ.
11) Paul was a persecutor who became the greatest missionary of all.
12) Mary was a unknown virgin who became the mother of Christ.
 
God will use you regardless of your present circumstances and he loves you enough to help in your present state. All God needs to use you is all of you! “

Heart problems , Diabetes, Cancer

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — thenonconformer @ 10:34 am
Heart problems and Diabetes, Cancer  seem to be partially related as well.. by our personally bad eating habits, meaning eating food that is hard to digest as well.. Most people do need to have  a better discipline for  what they are eating.. and when too. We are what we eat, consume applies here too.
 
Secondly unresolved Stress, lack of physical exercise as well leads to more heart problems.. and it seems that unresolved heart problems will also lead to diabetes too..
 
Too many people still are consumers of  too much sugar, and using rather  artificial sweeteners, and eating regularly is a good advice here too.
 
Most people also do not even know how to eat proper foods, even professionals included.. thus next a lot of people do  have related health problems..

We go through some difficult times in life. Divorce, money problems, losing a job, failing school, drugs,  and most often it is due to our own fault, we are doing our own thing.. so stop doing it your way, do it God’s way.
