Cast down the ARGUMENTS!
The enemy loves to debate in your mind…
And he will CONTINUE until YOU AGREE with his point of view …..
“Don’t go to church, they are hypocrites there… Don’t bother with that person they are fake…. Stay away from those people… Just go and have fun, life is short…why waste your time in church!”
But everyone is just like YOU… A human flawed vessel that needs God to BREAK and CHANGE you! To BREAK the yokes of bondage! Tears don’t change you. The Spirit of God changes you. Being broken will change you. It is time to BREAK the lies of the devil! You have to CANCEL out the lies that happen in your head that you feed and get in AGREEMENT with God and His point of view.
This is how He rebuilds you. He changes everything, how you think, how you feel, what you do, what you say and all your other priorities in life–that all changes.
“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
When you least expect it–those that are there among you are more than what you imagine! Gifted, Talented…but what is so important is that they LOVE God, and they want to be a servant for the kingdom. They put God as priority.
It is not about just coming to church for the pastors…or for others. For there is a remnant of people that come because of a commitment and obedience to God. But some people are on the other side of the river! For many reasons they keep themselves away.
There is no better life I want than the one with Jesus. He has already done so much for me. I decide to serve Him. I choose… for me and my house…not to take them any other place…but to the house of the Lord… we have 6 other days to do that. Sunday I have as a day reserved for the Lord and even throughout the week – my time goes to God. I don’t fit God into my schedule when I can but He is a VITAL part for me to have A schedule.
God bless His servants….indeed. I just pray that many others will have a yearning to be in His presence… not my presence but God’s …He loves us.
Yesterday was such an amazing experience in the house of the Lord. A woman came to visit us…Rev. Holly Noe and she is a revivalist. She preaches about revival. She shared in her message that the church today as a whole needs revival.
Please don’t allow anything or anyone to keep you from the house of the Lord. The enemy uses a lot of little things to get in our minds and infiltrate our hearts to the concept of “church”. In the end, many don’t attend for whatever reason. Satan wins that battle. He becomes successful in his schemes. Now I don’t judge those that do not attend or miss on occasion. I am just sharing my heart. There is nothing better than being in His courts.
What happened yesterday was truly a visit from God. He poured out His Spirit on His people in such a heavy way. I am sorry for all those that missed it for I wish that more were there to share that experience as well. I felt the presence of God so heavy, I could not even stand.
I know that it can get difficult on what you see, what you hear or what you experience but I will tell you this… find a place for God. Just know that there is NO perfect church. Sizes just vary but they contain the same type of people… flawed vessels. Just find the place where God has shown you to be a part of so that you can grow and experience what He wants to do for you. The enemy will CONVINCE you to not attend… it works for many. He will work so HARD to convince you to do something else. He will always show you something else to do and build up a strong case for you. WHY? Because HE KNOWS that God is coming back for a church… not the world but a church…and the devil wants you on the outskirts of the house of the Lord so that he can scoop you with the rest. So we have become so consumed with things and people and not with the person of God. ALL people are incapable of meeting your every need. Don’t place those expectations on others to do that. That will never be enough. What the world has to offer you, will also be incapable of meeting your every need.
But there is a God who is Able to meet EVERY single need for your life. Put your expectations on Him, for He shall not disappoint you.
Put the Father first and not any other.
Put the Son first and not the sun.
Put the Spirit first and not division.
Cast down all the little things and arguments that come against the knowledge of God. Don’t let Satan win the battle that goes on in your head first. Find out the truth. Don’t believe the lies. You are necessary in the eyes of God. You matter! Do not allow the devil to infiltrate that heart…mind…and soul of yours.
Where you fit in and what you can bring to the table will add value to the body of Christ. Be a part of it. As imperfect as it may seem to many, just know that Christ came so that He can place His perfection over our imperfections.
