SMITTEN

Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 7.22.54 PMI must confess that I have been bitten. The werewolf did not do it. The vampire is not the one guilty. It was someone else. Someone I met long ago. Someone that touched the fabric of my clothes as the oil dripped from my forehead. I recall the anointing.

I recall the power of God grabbing a hold of my mind and changing my thoughts. I was going in one direction, not the group, and found another. I changed the way I dressed. I changed the way I spoke. I changed the way I viewed life. For the first time I viewed life from an eternal perspective at not local.

No one told me to change. The Holy Spirit told me to change. I chose to be obedient. He chose to continue speaking. Disobedience closes the mouth of God and like the children of Israel you will wander aimlessly without direction and live in confusion.

Some believers, so called, said to me it does not take all that. You are being legalistic. Those same believers, so called, have cheated on their wives, lost their jobs due to drunkenness and have molested their children. I hear the words previously spoken “it does not take all that.” Really!!

Why would God in his complete awesomeness give us the Holy Spirit if he wanted us to continue living the way we lived without him? Why did he send his only Son? For me to say “it does not take all that?”

I assure you, it takes everything we have to live holy.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matthew 7:22- 24

OUR FATHER

Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ        2 Corinthians 1:2

What a privilege the believer has in having a relationship with the creator of heaven and earth, as dear as the relationship of a son and daughter toward a loving father. This is good news for those who have lousy fathers, because you still may have a Father in heaven.  Everyone needs this Father in heaven. The God of heaven and earth controls all that occurs and his hand reaches into eternity for a life everlasting.

Do you desire a relationship with a father who is no longer around?  Do you need comfort and consolation about the future? Our Father, which lives in heaven is anywhere you are.  Anywhere you can pray, anywhere you can call, anywhere you can cry, he is there. Do not hesitate to call upon the Father in the name of Jesus Christ. The Lord hears the cry of those who are beaten, bruised and wounded by this world and even our sinful choices that lead to more and more sorrow. We must repent of this and move toward the Father. He is a Father of love and desires his people to worship him.  He equips those who embrace his love. Are you ready for change? Then call upon the Father who without respect of persons comes to your aid with tender love and care. He promises to give you his Spirit and revelation knowledge.  Wisdom to those who ask, seed to the sower, love and deliverance are gifts from the Father of heaven.

If you think this is an exaggeration of what the Father has provided look at this:

For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. Romans 1:20
