Tribulations

Prayer in times of trouble

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Philippians 4:7

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Exodus 31:3

And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

1 Chronicles 22:12

Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.

Job 12:13

“With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.

Job 12:24

He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, And makes them wander in a pathless wilderness.

Christ didn’t have a normal journey in life, not any one of us do there is no normal. However Christ had the hardest. In his life he had to find a small group of people he truly could confide in these people were his friends who later became his deciples. On this journey we all get lost in our mistakes and falling short in sin. Though for Christ he had the knowledge that he was meant to die on the cross to save everyone in mankind and give the only thing he had to give, his very own life. As with any of us giving ourselves for some good can sometimes be hard and sometimes we don’t want to go through it alone and for Jesus that’s so many words underestimated of how hard his responsibilities were his biggest and toughest choice he had to make that he didn’t want to go through alone. Knowing he was going to die he wanted his closest friends, his decipels to go through it in support of what he had to endure. He wanted this time to be special for him as it would be his last time he had with them as his life would soon take all that of everyone and each of us for our salvation from sin which his decipels had yet to learn and understand. He wanted them to have understanding that would touch each of them in their own personal way by the relationships they shared with Jesus. That is what the father taught Jesus the best which is why he knew he was to die for the love of all of mankind to release them of their very own sins and wrongs they have traveled in the midst of their very own journey. Jesus and the fathers relationship were the closest relationship Jesus had. Though he wanted his special relationships to take part in a special way with him and not have to go through his hard East time alone. He asked each of them to come with him and be his support as any of us would with those closest in bond and trust with us. They agreed and went with him to be his support and be there for him however they fell asleep in the midst of Jesus time with his father and he still went through his toughest days alone as after they fell asleep they later denied knowing him and turned away from the close relationship they had once had. Sometimes amongst our very own lives we have these relationships as well where we’ve trusted someone a long time and they remove themselves from our lives turning away from us sometimes as if they had never known us and we fell betrayed and alone. Jesus had to feel this and knew it was only the beginning to the tribulations he would really have to endure. He had no true full understanding at first about the reasons of his father however he knew he couldn’t disrespect him and back out, that this was something that he must do for not only his father and himself but for all the human race. It was a very large responsibility and the father knew only he would be able to fully succeed in this quest and journey as any of us couldn’t. Though he had no true understanding he soon would learn. Right now in tribulations of our own lives we are all in this together going through something that none of us had any knowledge of and have to endure. Some of us feel as if we are going through this quarantine alone depending on the sick and non sick. There is question in struggle of not having any understanding. That’s how Jesus felt in his last days and last moments when he saw his closest to him betray all that they had gone through together. When our journey seems to be leading us nowhere we rely on the understanding of those closest to us and on our very own understanding and we find it a struggle to get through. In Jesus time he also did that as well with his relationship to his father and then with his own followers however they soon showed they weren’t there and his father was right that he had to go thru all alone to forgive all including his closest relationships. In 2 Corinthians it says as follows…

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

He died to save all mankind from their own wrong doing and sin so that they may build a relationship with him and live for him sharing the news of his salvation with all they journey with in their very own life.

Philippians 4:7

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Believing in a journey and relationship with Christ he promises to guard your life and lead your hearts in him.

Our father above, Jesus father spoke this in Exodus

Exodus 31:3

And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

God the father has stated in his word that he filled Christ with his very own spirit, that of the Holy Spirit with the knowledge of the sacrifice he was aware of to his coming and knowledge of how tough that which he had to endure truly would be. However no one but him only had that knowledge. In our times right now if those who are believers have knowledge it is from following in Jesus footsteps like the deciples had with Jesus himself. We as believers have some knowledge of things happening now but anyone who is not a believer is clueless unless we help them to find the way as Jesus had in his very own journey. Not everyone will listen and hear some may even turn away and deny you as a believer and mock you along your journey just as what happened with Jesus. We sacrifice ourselves everyday in our own journeys trying to maintain the right and best choices even to confess the truth of Jesus very own story of salvation and accepting and showing in honesty. That journey in itself is not the easiest journey and we as believers realize that we are traveling the same kind of journey as Jesus had himself however he had the hardest of all our very own journeys. Yet not everyone has that knowledge and their understanding is limited.

1 Chronicles 22:12

Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.

Only the father and his word can give you a peace of mind with the wisdom and knowledge to follow in Jesus footsteps as he did with his very own son so that you may live a good life for him.

Job 12:13

“With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.

Only with him will you truly find and know the knowledge of the truth.

Job 12:24

He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, And makes them wander in a pathless wilderness.

Meaning that he takes away knowledge from the people of authority such as government and large mighty people leaving them in uncertain paths in the world itself and confusion of where they should follow.

Right now is the most important walk we’ve had to endure however it was written in God’s word and handed to us as knowledge. Many feel scared and lost and alone however we are fully in this together and closest to the father at our toughest tribulations so far in our journey as Christ was in his last days and last hours. God the father has told us this time would come when plagued and government shut down in knowledge and he did this to prove that he is here so that we’d turn to him and have a relationship with him as he had with his son because we are his most precious arts and he only wants us to understand that and his love that he and Jesus have for us. This is our time of finding ourselves in true worship and revival.

Light And Strength In The Lord

Psalm 27 New King James Version (NKJV)

An Exuberant Declaration of Faith

A Psalm of David.

27 

The Lord is my light and my salvation;

Whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the strength of my life;

Of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked came against me

To eat up my flesh,

My enemies and foes,

They stumbled and fell.

Though an army may encamp against me,

My heart shall not fear;

Though war may rise against me,

In this I will be confident.

for you o Lord are my light and salvation whom shall I fear you are my strength within my journey whom shall I be afraid 

the evil ones rise against me with tools and snares my enemies and foes stumble and fall

though a great army rise against me my heart shall not falter or be of fear for throughout this I will remain confident 

In you God I trust and will not fear you are my strength within life when evil tries to come against my enemies and foes stumble yet I remain tall for evil rises against me and I shall not let my heart fail or be of fear but will remain confident in you and your word for only you lead me 

When God is with us they try to tear you down but no one can for your faiths and strength is in him

Only God

You’re not meant to be perfect

Only God is perfect

You’re not meant to trust in everything

Only God understands everything

You’re not meant to accept everything

Only God is accepting of all

You’re meant to be loving as Jesus was

Sharing in his love 💕

You’re meant to be forgiving in all things which need forgiving including that to yourself

As Jesus did and God is of us

We are all meant to be as Christ

Following in the image he gave

Be yourself but in image of Jesus

You don’t always have to be accepted by all

Only by God

You need to impress him in all you do

Just be you in Christ as Christ is in you

Hung On The Cross He Died

He hung his head in guilt for all

He sunk into his skin and took the nails upon his hands

Blood dripping from the thorns upon his head

He spoke to his father on behalf of all men

Saying

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, My God Why hast though forsaken me

He hung all day in the heat to bear sins for all men

Then he cried out and took upon the weight of all taking his last and final breath

The man known a Jesus who saved us all by the nails that were pierced

Then gave up his spirit and died

Worthlessness

I know there are times when you don’t feel good enough in life or someone has put you down making you feel low down

God talks about that in the good word by saying

Job 34:18 New King James Version (NKJV)

Is it fitting to say to a king, ‘You areworthless,’

And to nobles, ‘You are wicked’?

Psalm 4:2 New King James Version (NKJV)

How long, O you sons of men,

Will you turn my glory to shame?

How long will you love worthlessness

And seek falsehood? Selah

Psalm 119:37 New King James Version (NKJV)

37 

Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things,

And revive me in Your way.

Turn yourself away from people who look down on you and make you feel worthless for they are not speaking the words of God

They are doing just what they want to do letting you feel wrath and hateful desires to try to pull you down to their level and sin

Jeremiah 23:16 New King James Version (NKJV)

16 Thus says the Lord of hosts:

“Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you.

They make you worthless;

speak a vision of their own heart,

Not from the mouth of the Lord.

In His Eyes

In his eyes

I see pain

I see mystery

I see Devine spirit

In His eyes he alone loves me

His dreamy look he give when he looks me in my face

In his eyes I am his angel

He sees all beautiful things in the sight of me

is a renaissance of art if the masters hand

In his eyes Ian like the sun bright and pure

He tells me always how he loves me

In his eyes I am his golden prize

A gem and jewel for him to reveal for all to see

In his eyes is pureness and love for eternity

No hiding the soul he’s in love with me

In Christ

We may shed tears at times

We may feel unworthy, inadequate and small

But in Christ Jesus and the Heavenly Father we are amazing

We are just right

We are gems for them to forever hang on to

We may feel unloved or forgotten

But in Gods eyes we are forever his child and his gift

God sees us as nothing more than his own children

He loves us unconditionally in all we’ve done and do

Unconditionally in the rights and the wrongs

He is ever loving in every way

Don’t let your inadequate feels tear you down

Know that in Gods eyes you are everything

Strength In God

There’s days when we feel like giving up
There are days when we feel like we can’t go on
That life is too complex and tearing us down
—“I would be lying if I said there weren’t days where I wanted to give up, but the Lord constantly in big words say “ Let me be your strength”
God doesn’t want us to walk away and give up
He wants us to be strong in him letting him be our strength
He loves us unconditionally and only wants what he knows is best for us he reminds us every hour of everyday of his love for us
1 John 4:10-12 New King James Version (NKJV)
10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
Seeing God Through Love
12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.
—Your heart guides you to Jesus.
Jesus said, “Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John 18:37

Anyone who has experienced the power of God in their life will never be the same.
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles” Isaiah 40:31
You can spend your whole life walking away from God but one day you will come face-to-face with Him.
“Each of us will give an account of ourselves to God” Romans 14:12
Focus on the things of God not the things of this earth.
“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ” Philippians 3:20
Let those around you see God inside you.
“Walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called” Ephesians 4:1
Open your Bible and let God fill your heart.
“The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword” Hebrews 4:12

find you’re calling.
Serve God.

Let your heart guide you in your service to God.
“Not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord” Romans 12:11
Follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
“Let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light” Romans 13:12
John 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
God gave his son out of love to save us from our own sinful nature and wants to love us unconditionally he wants us to not have worry but walk with him and have strength to go on not giving up on ourselves or that of the earthly world

Our Stronghold

When we falter and fail

We try to climb higher than we are

Yet we still feel low and like we’re not going anywhere

Till someone falls further than us and we keep them from falling down

Christ won’t let us down or fall

He is our stronghold foundation and pedestal

He will keep us held high for our light to shine and all to see

Jesus love is the key

He keeps us from falling down

God Why Is This Happening

We often find ourselves asking the question of why god or what did I do or even God Why is this happening to me what have I done wrong against you for this to be happening

Truth is not everything that we go through is happening by God or has anything to do with him

Sometimes what we go through reflects by a choice and action that we made

Other times evil boasts by satan putting a hurtle in our path of direction

But much of the times God is testing you to see if you allow him in your life and allow him to strengthen and guide you

Much of the other times God is putting ways in our paths to teach us how to better ourselves and serve him more in obedience with him

So the answer to those questions of why is because he loves us and wants us to better understand how to be obedient to him in all waysRevelation 3:20Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me

In all things we do God wants to come in and take part in it with us he doesn’t want us going through our trials and temptations alone he wants to guide us teach us and lead us in the perfect way he sees for us

But we have to hear his voice and listen and truly focus on what he wants of us or we’ll find ourselves asking why god or what did I do or even God Why is this happening to me what have I done wrong against you for this to be happening
