Hearing God's Voice

Image
Hearing God's voice can be difficult, when there are so many voices to contend with in this world.  It is not always the loud voice that you hear in your mind. I know that is the way it is for me.

As you are aware, hopefully, there is a spirit realm around us. Either we are hearing God speak or we are hearing satan's voice. Resist satan's voice and walk according to the voice of the Lord Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit.

We have to put to death the deeds of the flesh. The voice of sin will speak to your carnal nature. You do not want to follow that voice. It will only lead to the destruction of your flesh. As a Spirit filled believer, you are obligated; you will be led to obey the instruction of God and it will not be anything that is against the word of God. Everything you hear, I would encourage to take it to the scriptures. Remember that it will always line up. If anything you hear goes contrary to what the holy scriptures say, I would definitely not listen to t…

Update....

     It seems that I am going through a dry patch in my writings. I have been going through a lot in the last few months and do not know exactly know how to put it into words. It is just personal stuff, that I do not feel at liberty to share right now in my life. Maybe someday but not right now.  

     What I can say is that the dynamics in my life have changed drastically.   I don't know if you know what I am saying, but when a certain thing in your life changes, then you either change with it or feel left behind. In a way I feel left behind and dealing with some depression. I pray that I can snap out of this and continue to seek God more than I ever have before. I will keep pressing into the things of God to get my breakthrough.  

     My changes will come. I will continue on as before. Just have had to slow down. If you have not noticed I changed my blogging back to GodZone.  A few of my blog posts at Sacred Grace will be in my book.

Right now I am getting my book professionally e…

Teaching about Anxiety

Image
Anxiety is one subject I have not touched on...I was reminded of it tonight in a Facebook group. A young lady said she had got off her anxiety medicine, and now was having problems with anxiety. I felt like the anxiety was put on her because she was told by another Christian that she wasn't strong if she took the medicine.  I cannot say a lot of what I said to her because I cover it in my book how I feel about medicine, but I will tell you this much, medicine heals many people. We cant use it as a quick fix then get off of it, we must be diligent to take our medicine.  

Cast all your anxiety upon me, for I care for you 1 Peter 1:7

What exactly is anxiety.....worry, tension,fear, nerves....i think you get what anxiety means from those words.  Let's take it deeper now. "Attempting to make or knowing you need to make a decision. Will I do it this way or that way can cause anxiety. some choices create anxiety. we can't have it both ways we can not be on the fence about maki…

More Power to Ya!

The Holy Spirit is a very important part of our life as a Christian.  A true believer is filled with the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. I believe that it is a daily supernatural infilling.  Ephesians 5:18 states that we should be filled with the Holy Spirit. In that same scripture it makes mention of being drunk on wine.  Acts 2:4 says there were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Verse 13 states that some of the people who witnessed this thought they were drunk with new wine. I really do not think this is a coincidence.  We can be intoxicated with many things and not only alcohol. Our bodies are temples that house the Holy Spirit if we allow ourselves to have that wonderful experience.


How do you get filled with the Holy Spirit? You ask God to fill you, then you wait for it.  While you are waiting, I suggest that expect it and stand on the promises that the word says especially in Acts 2.  There are so many ways to f…

A Easy "A?"

Sometimes it is very difficult to have a positive outlook with what is going on around you. It would be safe to say that God does not tempt us but He does test us to see if how we are going to do with the test.

What does the word of God saying about testing?

Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations? Then be happy, 3 for when the way is rough, your patience has a chance to grow. 4 So let it grow, and don’t try to squirm out of your problems. For when your patience is finally in full bloom, then you will be ready for anything, strong in character, full and complete. James 1:2-4

That's my favorite verse these days it seems.

God does test us, and sometimes those tests are very hard. Did everyone ever have a class in school where they got a easy A?

I always am greatly encouraged when someone goes through something devastating but their faith is strong. They are still standing and still leaning on God, standing on the promises in the word of God.I wonder how they do t…

All Things

I was reminded of a scripture this morning as I was meditating on the Lord and that is Romans 8:28--and we know that all things work together for good to those love God and are called according to his purpose.  Did you get that? Not some things some of the time, but "all things" all the time!  Some are those "things" are not always good, they are bad things as well.  From financial depletion to divorce to death you name it.   Why do bad things happen to good people who love God and are called according to his purpose?  I can tell you this much all those  things - good and bad- work together. God has ordained those things that for our own good. Those bad things work together with the good things?  Yes!
Why?  Because we know. we learn to trust God we learn to obey and believe in God's promises. We learn to depend and trust on his word when we don't have anything else we can hold onto.
Father I submit to you this day. Fill  me with Your Holy Spirit and help me t…

Jesus knows my Heart.

Everything is telling me to back off and get back under my rock. I feel broke, hurt, despised and rejected.  I haven't made myself this vulnerable in a very long time.  I took the risk, I took the plunge, and will never be the same again.  I take a hold of that rope of hope once more who is it but a wretch like me.
I bear the heaviness of my cross as I walk that mile up Calvary's hill.   I hear them yelling "Crucify Him!"  I feel their spit and their spite.   
Then I am plunged in the hot air  I feel the painful strains of my flesh being torn apart,  as my cross is put on that hill  I bow my head in shame...  
I want to live yet I yearn to die that cross has laid me bare.  Yet I know those all-consuming words,  "Forgive them they not know what they do." It is finished it is done why do I feel forsaken.
For those I love I was made a curse,  and hung upon that tree.... not spared but die in the darkness for all the world to see.
That dark and empty tomb I was buried no one knew…
