Failing or Missing God

Have you ever failed God? I'm sure all of you could say "Yes" at one point that you did. I don't think anyone would say it gives them great pleasure to fail God. But when you fail God, you see how imperfect and weak you are without God. You see your great NEED for God. That you can't live without him. You know when God convicts your heart about something and you KNOW its God who gave you that conviction? When in your heart, you tell God you will obey him. Sometimes you can't wait till God puts you in a situation so you could "prove" to God that you'll really obey him this time. But God doesn't put us in the situation when we think were ready. Sometimes he'll wait 3-4 months go by until you "forget" about the conviction and you find yourself in that situation. And you missed God... I thank God that we can come to the throne of Grace with boldness and asking God for forgiveness and mercy. Hebrews 4:16. I'ts the most terrible feeling in the world failing God. It shows you how weak you are with God. It feels your soul with agony, cause you know you missed an opportunity to be a testimony of Jesus Christ, but you missed it and the only person to blame is YOU. I am glad God doesn't treat us like our sins deserve. Psalm 103:10. David said, if counted all our iniquities not ONE of us will be able to stand. Psalm 130:3 Thank you lord for your mercy, Forgive your children lord. Forgive us for missing you

For all who are thirsty

Isaiah 44:3-4 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows bu the water courses. This is something the lord had me read this morning. Isaiah 64:1 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at they presence. As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make they name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

Making Jesus real again

I know its been such a long time since I posted something on this blog. I was in North Carolina for spring break and I just came back from Texas. I had a great time in NC. I had a amazing time in Texas. The word of God was on point for all the services. It was just a confirming a lot of things that God had spoken to our ministry and to my life specifically. God was saying through the pastors that we need to make sure there is NO bitterness, unforgivness or any other sin in our hearts in order to be free. Satan desires to bounds us Christians so we won't reach the lost. How can we speak about God being a deliver or a healer? If us Christian are bound and spiritually or physically sick like any other person. This Gospel has to be real to us. We have to make Jesus real again in our lives. We have to lift him daily in our lives. In psalms it says "The fool hath said in his heart there is no God" This verse is stated twice in Psalms. This verse is not only for sinners, but for Christians as well. With our mouth and mind we may confess Christ, but our actions deny him. When I was in Texas, I was thinking about the city of Philadelphia and the college campuses. How God wants to reach them through his people, but if he can't break us and do a work within us...What makes us so different from those who aren't saved? God must be made real in our lives again.
