What a week or so! It's been incredible and we had sum but now we have still sum but nun of the sum to do with what our heart desires.
Speaking of heart's desires...
What have you always dreamt of doing but have never done? Do you think it's too late to do what you have always wanted to do? Did you know God puts things in our hearts and hopes that we will reach for them, some times they are really easy to reach but some times they take a bit of faith, work, love, hope, joy, and strength to endure until the promise is fulfilled?
God puts on our heart when we are a child a dream, "I want to be a doctor" but through life, this dream was placed on a shelf. Maybe along this child's journey, things were said or things were done in this life that this dream was gone- it wasn't poof gone but it was put off and put into a blessing box. That blessing box is God's box of all the things he has given you, either while you prayed, thought, dreamt of, or put off because life got in the way!
So, let's dig up what you really wanted to do! Does it make sense today? Is it something that you can fulfill?
How deep seated was that past overlooked blessing?
I am not sure what I wanted to be as a child, but I always wanted to be a mom since I was about 9 yo, I babysat a lot. In fact that was one of my summer high school jobs. I had my first child at age 20.
But in high school I wanted to be a truck driver. I got my chance when my car broke down between two cities. A truck picked me up and offered to teach me to drive it. He took me to a truck stop and AAA picked me up from there and we got the car and took it back home. I was on my way home after a weekend conference.
My next dream was to be a rodeo clown. I went to a rodeo as a young woman and watched the clowns up close and decided against that.
God has given me much of what I have dreamt of in the past years. I have another dream that one day I know will come true.
I have a dream of having a church, not like any other church, it won't have traditional stuff, it won't have parents and children split- they will be family taught. It won't be just about singing but really worshipping Jesus and singing in our spirits to Him. Healing will take place and praying for each other will be the norm, it will be a huge place that reaches the unreached and the unlovely. It will be a place that is completely similar to the Acts church and Thessalonian church. The teachings will be God's word and questions answered. Bible studies will be offered for more than just an hour or two. It will be a time to learn and to honor Jesus.
Since we are in the last days, this will be imperative. It will be imperative that you have a relationship with Jesus and not the religiousness of sitting in a church pew or chair that we do every Sunday and believe that it is the way to heaven. Sorry, but it isn't.
It's about obedience and faith in Jesus, church is the gathering of people to corporately worship together. However, many just fall into this and don't take the Mon-Sat relationship with Jesus seriously. If we don't learn God's Word, anything anyone quotes out of the Bible, you won't know if it's true or not. You have to study the Word of God. You have to know Him! Your innerman needs to soak in the Son. Your innerman needs the real Jesus and not the fake. When you enter into His Word, ask the Holy Spirit to help explain the Word.
It's about our relationship with Jesus and learning the Bible, praying and forgiving ourselves and others for God to forgive us. It's about putting your life down and picking up the right standing before God.
Did you know that your body is God's temple? Did you know that when you drink and smoke and the other things that happen to our bodies can defile the temple and it makes it polluted for God to use it? It's like walking a beautiful trail and along the way, the trash cans have been dumped over on the ground, but when you look up it is beautiful but you have to watch your step because you may trip over the trash on the ground. Along this walking trail is graffiti as well, the trail has been defaced and it's nasty, but the view is still beautiful. So, we need to take a trash bag and clean up the trail so when others and you see it and walk it, you and they enjoy the trail. Imagine, a trail so clean that God can see you in the trail of your life and your temple is so clean, he can so use you in this place!
Learning what the end times are and knowing that time is short here on this earth. If you chose to stay on the religious side of things without a relationship, life will be very difficult at the end. Those that have a relationship with Jesus will be caught up in the air with Jesus and NUN will be here who have that relationship, but for those that didn't and just sat by and watched- Life will be hard, it will be difficult, the anti-Christ will reign and your late conversion will be hard but so worth it.
Yes, I am on this again. If you listen to Joyce Meyer, Perry Stone, Hal Lindsey, any of the greats, they will tell you the same things. It's about your relationship with Jesus that counts, forgiving others and yourself for God to forgive you, living a forgiven life and a studying the Word of God, knowing His Word and believing that your body is God's temple, man, you will be living a righteous life!
Time is short, get your life right today.
