“A Hard Truth”

Thought for Today: A HARD TRUTH

There is someone in your life that you have been praying about for a long time. However, they have made up in their mind, heart, and soul that they are not changing for anything or nobody. They are who they are, and you can accept them or reject them, but whatever your decision is they will not change.

I know in your heart and mind you may be thinking “If God can change me, He can change anybody.” And so, you continue to toil in prayer for them, not wanting to give up on them.

I know you may find this very hard to believe but there are many people in the world, and in your life, who will simply reject the word of God. For the word of God says, “Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart” (Ephesians 4:18).

God is all-knowing and all-seeing, He knows who will accept the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ, and He knows who will reject Jesus Christ as the Son of the living God.

Jesus Christ, Himself, said, “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, that one that judgeth him; the word that I have spoken the same shall judge him in the last day” (John 12:48). You have been going back and forth about this one person that you have been praying for and because your heart is so big you just cannot give up on this person; you will continue to pray even though you know in your heart they will not change. I need you to go before the Lord and ask God this question, “Lord, will this person ever change?” For the word of God says, “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, THE LORD KNOWETH THEM THAT ARE HIS. And let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity” (2 Timothy 2:19).

Yes, God is all-powerful, and there is nothing that God cannot do, but God will not make a person accept who He is. For the word of God says, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man (woman) hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him (her) and will sup with him (her) and he (she) with me” (Revelation 3:20).

I know this is a hard truth to accept but the truth of the matter is everybody will not accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Jesus, Himself, said, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me” (Matthew 15:8).

Jesus said again in Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say unto 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 I WILL PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU DEPART FROM ME YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.”

Get with God and ask Him if the person you are praying for will ever change. I know this is A HARD TRUTH, but there are many people in the world, and in your life, who will not accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior no matter how hard you pray.

For it is written, “Then said the Lord unto me, PRAY NOT FOR THIS PEOPLE FOR THEIR GOOD. When they fast, I will not hear their cry, and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I WILL NOT ACCEPT THEM; but I will consume them by the sword and by the famine and by the pestilence” (Jeremiah 14:11-12).

Get with the Father and ask God “Will this person ever change?” God knows the beginning from the End, and THE HARD TRUTH is some people will not change no matter what, and God will never make a person accept who He is.

I know this is not the normal encouraging thought for today but it’s the truth, and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. 

Be Blessed

“Your Precious Gift from God”

Thought for Today: Your Precious Gift from God

There are many things that the world, your flesh, and especially the devil want to take from you. They want to rob you of your peace, joy, happiness, strength, purpose, and destiny. 

But there is one thing that the enemy secretly desires and will use all the tricks, strategies, plots, and plans to get it. The one thing that the enemy secretly desires is your soul. Jesus said “For what is a man (woman) profited, if he (she) gains the whole world, and lose his (her) own soul? Or what shall a man (woman) give in exchange for his (her) soul” (Matthew 16:26). 

You see, the soul of a man and the soul of a woman is a precious gift from God. Your soul is where your decision-making capabilities lay. Whatever influences your soul also controls your spirit and the very essence of who you are.  

The devil wants more than to possess (have complete power over) your soul. If the devil can have complete power over your soul (your decision-making abilities), he can get you to do and say whatever he wants.  

For the one who is in control of your soul will influence your spirit. It’s not just the devil that is after your soul. The world is after your soul (your decision-making abilities) as well,  if they can take over your soul then the world can get you to act just like them, talk just like them, and live just like them.  

For the word of God says, “Be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2). 

If the devil or the world ain’t after your soul, your flesh (feelings and/or emotions) will look to have power over your soul (your decision-making abilities). For the word of God says, “This I say then walk (live your life) in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh (feeling and/or emotions) lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary one to the other so that ye cannot do the things that ye would” (Galatians 5:16-17).

I don’t know who I am talking to, but the Holy Spirit of God says to you, your soul does not belong to the world, your soul does not belong to your flesh, and your soul definitely doesn’t belong to the devil.  

He created your soul, “And the LORD GOD formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). Your soul does not belong to the world your flesh or the devil for the word of God says “Behold ALL SOULS ARE MINE as the soul of the father so also the soul of the son is mine; the soul that sinneth (that is separated from me says the Lord) it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4). 

God says to you today, “I am the lover of your soul. I want to be the one to influence your soul, to give directions to your spirit to live an amazing life.” Stop for just a second and think about what influences your decision-making abilities (your soul). Does fear, frustration, anger, unbelief, doubt, anxiety, anger, or hopelessness influence your decision-making abilities? 

For it is written, “Unto thee O LORD do I lift up MY SOUL. O my God I trust in thee; let me not be ashamed let not mine enemies’ triumph over me” (Psalms 25:1-2). 

YOUR SOUL is a precious gift from God, He wants to be the one to influence your decision-making ability to live the life that He has planned for you, not the life the world, your flesh, or the devil has planned for you. Place your precious gift (your soul) into God’s hands and watch your life change forever. 

Be Blessed

“That’s Not Why”

Thought for Today: THAT’S NOT WHY

There is a deception that has been used by the devil for years that has lured many people out of the will of God and into sin. Three words that have been entered into the hearts of many believers and have lured many into lies, deception, manipulation, control, fornication, adultery, theft, drugs, alcohol. 

I don’t know who I am talking to but you may be thinking about doing something that you know is not right with God, and the enemy is baiting you into doing this thing that you know is not right with three words: NOBODY CAN SEE.  

The word of God says, “Now the serpent was more subtill (crafty or tricky) than any beast of the field which the LORD God has made” (Genesis 3:1). The reason the enemy has to trick you into doing things that you know are not right in the eyes of God, is because he has no power over any of God’s children. 

I know you might not like what I am about to say but it’s the truth, the devil can’t make you do anything. You hear children of God saying “the devil made me do it,” but this does not line up with what Jesus said.  “I beheld satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold I give unto you (yes, you) power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10: 18-19).

The enemy of your soul will try to convince you that NOBODY CAN SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING, then he will flip the script and tell you the exact opposite and that God is watching you to judge you, God is watching you to bring the hammer down on you, God is watching you to beat you up. 

Religion has convinced so many people that God is sitting on the throne watching so that He can beat you for your mistakes and punish you for your sins, downfalls, and shortcomings. Can I tell you something? God is not sitting there waiting for you to sin or make a mistake.  

The word of God says, “But God commendeth His love towards us (this means you) in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). You see, God is not sitting on the throne waiting for you to make a mistake or sin, God is all knowing, all seeing, everywhere at all times.  

The reason the enemy is telling you that God is watching you is because he is hoping that knowing God is watching you will make you scared to live the life that God has for you.  Fear of falling short, fear of failing, fear of making a mistake, and fear of making the wrong choice; This lie that God is watching to beat you up has many children of God walking on eggshells, afraid to live.  

Jesus said, “The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY” (John 10:10). 

Listen to me, God is not watching you to wait and see if and when you will make a mistake so that He can judge you or beat you up. THAT IS NOT WHY GOD is watching you. For it is written, “Behold the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear (honor and respect) Him upon them that hope in his mercy. To deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine” (Psalm 33:18-19). 

Don’t believe the lie of the devil that says nobody will see you. God sees you. And don’t allow the devil to prevent you from living an amazing life out of fear that God is watching you to punish you. God is watching you to love you, not to punish you. 

Be Blessed
