"Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near": Isaiah 55:6
“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.” Psalm 91:2
In reality... the above Scriptures are the KEY which opens the door... just as FAITH will, which brings it to pass. He never fails, but it takes our Sacrifice of "our SELF" and our total surrender unto HIM.
In order to experience the reality of God in one's life one has to leave the WORLD behind and ALL that is in it... your daily life, your friends, your activities, your looking around for the worldly things and all that which is in it.
Our song must be: "Take the world but give me Jesus." "NO beating around the bush". If you so sacrifice your life unto Him... one will begin to experience MIGHTY WORKS OF GOD. I am a witness to this all and I can proof that it works 100%.
Thank God. HALLELUJAH!
I have more to add, which may make others to think deeper about their walk with God. As long as we follow the Lord in the way He desires, our walk with Him will become "lighter".
But as soon as we mingle with the things of this world, our life will be tested more and more... and it may not become easy going, nor will it be pleasant. It rather makes one discouraged and being drawn back. This is due to the way they are following God's word, which only may be 75% or 50%, and causes the stagnation.
The Lord gave me this just by inspiration as fast as I could type it. This is most of the time how my writings come about.
One should not accept defeat when God's Spirit has His intake in one's life. We shall walk in Victory, since we are overcomers with Him. We may stumble at times, but this should not be falling into gross sins, if the Holy Spirit has been received.
Individuals who show such signs of gross sin in their life, cannot be filled with the Holy Spirit, according to God's Word. The Scripture speaks about to be Holy for I am Holy says the Lord. If this would be impossible the Father would not be speaking like this to His children.
One should not be hiding gross sins, but surrender more to the Lord God, who will strengthen us by His Spirit to live for His glory.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
Too many shake hands with the things of this world, instead of fleeing from it.
But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 8:5
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. Romans 13:14
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits at the right hand of God. Colossians 3:1-25
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? Romans 6:16
Keep on revealing God's truth. God's Word shall stand! When people begin to defend themselves, you know more than they are willing to admit.
Keep Preaching His Truth. AMEN!
I have to present God's Word, without changing anything, unless the Father will take away for what He has called me to do.
We have to obey God more than mankind. AMEN!
Back up with God's Word whatever God reveals to your heart.
Speak it out, if anyone wants to declare the opposite, God's word shall stand, even if you do not answer to negative replies of others.
You never have to apologize for God's Word. Holding fast God's Truth is your strength, your healing and your joy to continue with the Father. Whatever He speaks to your heart, bring it in the open or write it down.
If anyone wants to declare it to be untrue, allow God's word to speak up. Some may react to God's word and may have a way to go against it by placing the "finger" on the ones who express His truth.
Workers in His Kingdom are responsible to God Himself... NOT to any human-being.
