When was your last revelation concerning Christ?

IMG_3990

Today I worked both of my jobs in Downtown Dallas, Texas, USA. Thankfully I had about a 3 hour and 30 minute break. I’ve been exhausted from my shifts and to add to everything I’m moving!

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27.

I’ve heard scriptures about the peace from God but I’m not sure if I’ve acknowledged that this is something I’ve received from God or even thanked Him for for giving me peace. Right now I am going through a pretty hard season in the physical realm but spiritually I feel as if I’m walking on water!

What does any of this have to do with a bicycle, Sherry?! Well I’m glad you guided me back to that lol. Yesterday as I was riding a bicycle in Downtown Dallas, Texas, USA, I had so much peace as I let the breeze caress my face. I felt like a kid with endless positive possibilities. I began to reminisce on my first time riding a bicycle and how I taught myself. I started with just one training wheel (borrowing a neighbors bike) and then as I kept riding (almost all day) the other training wheel fell off and I was on my own. I was riding the bicycle with no training wheels! And I thought about my life with Christ, no one taught me about how a relationship with Christ should look like. I just loved Him and He loved me back. I just knew that I wanted a relationship full of love and here was a person willing to give it to me.

My relationship with Christ started much like my experience with riding that bicycle for the first time, I just hopped on the bike and tried something and it seemed to be working. Now I’m sure everyone’s first bicycle experience didn’t happened like mine but what I do know is that you at least just tried it out and eventually got the hang of it. Now it had been a while since I rode a bike and yesterday riding the bicycle was a skill I did not lose, the saying is true, “Its like riding a bike.” That saying refers to something that is second nature and is something so easy it’s hard to forget.

IMG_3982

My relationship with Christ is just like riding a bike it was so natural (second nature) for me to treat Him like a person because that’s how He was introduced to me. I’ve never thought of Him as this far away God because He never felt far away. Jesus is truly my best friend and I talk about anything with Him. Having a relationship with Christ is so easy. I found out quickly that being obedient to God is easy as well, when you enjoy someone’s presence it’s kind of hard to offend them because you don’t want to hurt them. I enjoy God and He blesses me with His presence and as I am enjoying Him spontaneously things that I struggle with are no longer a concern and making the right choices become so easy because I’m doing life with Christ.

Is your relationship something that’s so second nature or do you feel the need to have to conjure up something to be able to talk with Him, pray, sing/dance with Him?! I want to challenge you to treat the Lord like the person He is and I’m telling you that YOU won’t be disappointed. He is truly the best person on Earth- Just taste and see!

This revelation of how easy life with Christ is came while I was riding a bicycle. Christ is immeasurable hence you will never have enough revealations of who He is. Almost everyday I have a revelation of Christ. When I am expecting to see Him in some form or fashion I receive revelations from somethings someone says or does, something I see or do, or some man made thing in this World. The Lord is all over the place and He is waiting to reveal Himself to you. My prayer is that your spiritual eyes would be open so you could see how wonderful and magnificent our God is!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me. I choose you to be my Lord and Savior! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Are you a sheep who knows our Shepherd’s voice?

IMG_3715

Recently I heard a message from Priscilla Shirer a Pastor here from Dallas, TX, USA. And she nailed this message about knowing God’s voice. She thoroughly educated us about sheep and their Shepherd and how the the good shepherds would study and spend a lot of time getting to know their 100 sheep!!! They would KNOW them and could tell them apart from other sheep, how awesome is that?! Several shepherds would place their sheep in the same “holding station/ pen station” while they would possibly go in to town to rest. A gatekeeper would stay and literally be the gate and lay down blocking the entrance and exit while waiting for the shepherds to return for their sheep. Upon the shepherd’s return he would call out for his sheep, AND JUST THEIR SHEEP would come, because they knew their shepherd’s voice! It becomes even more amazing, a shepherd could alter their voice and call just one sheep out of the one hundred and that one particular sheep would come!

This amazed me because had I not been educated on sheep, I’m not sure I could relate as much as I am relating and enjoying the scripture, “I am the Good Shepherd I know my own and my own know Me.” John 10:14. With the World’s situation and as many voices that are being spoken from so many different platforms it’s good to know our Shepherd’s voice. Actually let me back up, I had  a guy once tell me that “He would believe in God if God would speak to him but God isn’t speaking!” The truth is – God is speaking and either we are listening, or we aren’t listening or we are hearing His voice and taking credit for what He is saying”.

So agreed, God is speaking! We need to be those who spend time with our Shepherd getting to know Him, listening to His voice and actually obeying it and following only Him. The God of this universe is speaking to you and wants you to actually listen. God speaks to deaf people. They may not can hear a physical sound from the Earth or our mouths but God speaks directly to our hearts, His voice comes from within and from without. The Bible says in Matt 24:4,5,11

IMG_3717

There’s a guy in Miami right now claiming to be the Messiah and he has many followers! You can’t be deceived if you know Our Shepherd’s voice!

“The change in time has not changed the Shepherd’s desire to get to know us, but if we are not careful the change in time will change our desire to get to know Him” – Priscilla Shirer

When a world has decided that they have no need of God, We The Church will take a stand and say ALL WE NEED IS GOD! We will get to know our Shepherd’s ways, thoughts, and His voice. We will not be deceived because we know His voice. And guess what the Shepherd knows us too. We are not a stranger to Him. He knows us and we know Him. Hallelujah we know our Shepherd’s voice and He leads us gracefully! He speaks, we hear, He leads, we follow, He is the Shepherd, we are the sheep, He knows us and we know Him. What a God we have?!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me.

The Way is not limited to a path, He is a person and His name is Jesus!

 

IMG_3570

So many times I hear Jesus being limited to a path we should take. In one sense of course this is true. This blog post is not to disclaim this truth but to shine light on how “The Way” is so much bigger than a path we should take.

In John 14:6 NLT “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” There is only one way to God and Jesus is the key! Here is where we see Jesus to be one path to one destination. Okay so Jesus gives me access to the Holy God so when will we ever need “The Way” again? I’m so glad you’ve asked that question! Everyday we have choices set before us and as we enjoy Jesus as Life aka “The Way” We spontaneously choose “the Life Way”. In Deuteronomy 30:19-20 God says this:

IMG_3571

When we are in Jesus (the matter of position) we are enjoying Him as our Life and we spontaneously choose “The Way” which is always the perfect Way, always the right path, always choosing blessing! Now if we are honest with ourselves, we know sometimes in our life we do not choose Life, we choose death by being in the flesh and making “fleshly” desire decisions. We may choose death in the way we choose to react when someone is rude to us by responding in a way that Christ would not want us to respond; However on the flip side God has a plan for when we are operating out of our flesh which leads to death and it’s this scripture:

img_3572.png

So when we make bad choices aka flesh decisions, God works turns those decisions to work out for our good. When the enemy has a plan to kill, steal and destroy us- God works that out for our good! How wonderful is this?! This is why we should worry, because even against all odds we come out in top walking on water because God is absolutely for us winning! In fact the Bible says we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS IN CHRIST! (Romans 8:37).

The more we exercise ourselves to purposely focus on Christ, the more we will spontaneously choose Life. Earlier this week I was in a small car accident. A young girl was speeding, weaving in and out of traffic and hit my car. She was frantic when we stopped our cars to exchange information and was extremely hype and in a calm tone (which is absolutely NOT normal for me) I responded to her and she became humble! How was this? Who calmed this storm? I was enjoying Jesus as my Life by singing to Him in the car right before the accident and He was so present during this entire matter (as He is in all of our lives).

IMG_3574

I was able to befriend this young woman and tell her a little bit about the Lord and how she should value her life and not be so reckless driving as it could it end very badly for her. Now this was absolutely Christ operating in me as my life because this is just something I wouldn’t do. So it isn’t a matter of thinking of “WWJD” aka “What would Jesus do” and doing it but letting Him operate in you and flow out of you as Life and afterwards your response will be “Oh that’s what Jesus would do!” Jesus was always reaching people no matter the situation. Jesus is “The Way” to reach people. He is always the answer! (John 3:30). The more we spend time with Jesus by reading the Bible, singing to Him, praying, listening to hmHis voice etc.., the more we began to walk and talk like Him. We must be intentional in our relationship with Christ, because that’s what you do when you are in a relationship. If we truly decrease and let Him increase then He can operate in us and God’s will WILL BE DONE and we will have heaven on Earth. (Matt 6:10) So choose “The Way” today and all day by enjoying Christ as your Life and keeping your focus on Him All day!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me.

Back to the basics- I want You Christ and real Faith!

IMG_3513

Recently, well today, I had a friend ask me what did God show me on 6/23/17? I’ve been telling people- friends, family and believers, that the Lord has recently woke me up.

6/23/17 I was awakened! Before “my awakening” I didn’t even know I was sleep. I didn’t even know that Believers could be sleep. I mean I was loving the Lord, I was somewhat following the Lord, I was in the Church meetings! How could I be sleep?

I was unbothered when I heard about girls living in sex slavery, children in MY VERY OWN  CITY cutting themselves, people on drugs, and prostitutes selling their souls!

But God woke me up. And I love Him differently. I love His people differently. I love my enemies differently. People’s pain affect me. I find myself weeping more because it. I find myself praying more. I find myself DYING to selfishness. I find myself saying Lord use me. And really meaning it!

This is what the Lord has been showing me since 6/23/17. I pray it blesses you, encourages you and empowers you to find your identity in Christ and to walk in Christ enjoying Him as your life!

6/23 The AWAKENING Choose to be a living overcomer! Aka “To live victoriously Daily”

6/24 thru TODAY The Lord has showed me- I was allowing myself to be a defeated Christian  by choosing to love the World, indulging in the pleasures of my flesh, seeking my own will above God’s will.

QUICKLY after 6/23 He began to bring me back to the basics, coming o Him first, believing in Him, Trusting in Him. Allowing Him to take the lead basically letting Him be God and not becoming god myself!

SLOWLY after 6/23 He began to show me my purpose, pull this purpose out of me causing me to seek Him like I’ve never sought Him before. Causing me to love Him and others like I’ve never done before. Causing me to want to die to myself/ decrease so He can increase! Helping me find my identity in Him

SURELY giving me the confidence to walk in Him boldly and use my gifts to bring Him glory while inspiring a generation to do the same

THANKFUL– I’m so very thankful He would wake me up to be alive in the age and apart of the generation and God’s plan to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to build His Church aka His beautiful Bride!

TAKE AWAY – Jesus overcame the World! And now the overcoming One lives in US! We should be spontaneously overcoming enemy, our flesh, and any obstacle meant to destroy us. As we enjoy Jesus as life we spontaneously overcome. THIS HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE since 6/23/17❤️

Would you choose to be a living overcomer?

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me. I choose you to be my Lord and Savior! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

You worship differently! “let that boy worship” written and rapped by Adrion Butler

IMG_3421

I can not remember where I was when I first saw “Let that boy Worship” performed by Adrion Butler in DFW, Texas but when I heard the words and saw his passion being expressed through the song, I was extremely encouraged. The song really ignited more freedom within me. So this is random but still on topic I love to dance for the Lord but I just do not know how to dance other than twerking; And personally I’m not going to twerk in the presence of the Lord. So I jump around moving my arms in a wild and free way and this is how I dance in His presence. However I have been told by a Pastor (she was telling a group of us) to not move our hips when we praise. I remember reading about how David danced his clothes off and I wondered what that Pastor would have told David. Praising God freely is something I believe we should do in His presence while worshipping Him in truth and in Spirit. Praising Him freely is a freedom I began to express after seeing others express themselves freely in God’s presence.

The song impressed me because I’ve heard so many believers talk badly about rappers who are Christians without trying to understand the heart of the one’s who are expressing themselves through the music titled “Christian Rap Music”.

When I first rededicated my life to Christ in 2009, a lady told me to get rid of the music I listened to and I did. I purchased music that expressed praise to Jesus by singing. And then I heard about the rapper Lacrae and the 116 clique and man was I happy. I grew up in the “r and b/rap” age/culture so to hear a rapper rap about God, I was hyped aka krunk aka lit. I was inspired and hopeful. I was impressed that the Lord would even use someone like Lacrae to rap for Him. Like how could rap be used to  glorify God? How was this even possible? It wasn’t the norm however I am familiar with the scripture “Behold I make all things new” (Rev 21:5) and personally I never want traditional concepts to make me box in the God of this universe. The trees praise Him (1 Chronicles 16:33). All of His creation can praise Him. Why should we limit worshipping and praising God in the ways that “we are used to”? The trees don’t praise the way I do but it’s still praise to our Heavely Father! All of creation has been called to praise God and I’m sure your praise looks different than mine but praise is praise!

IMG_3442

I had composed some questions and Adrion was open to answering them. Please find my questions and his answers below. I hope Adrion’s answers encourages you and helps you understand “Christian rap”. I have been encouraged through His responses as well as to appreciate how others and all of creations praises God!

1. Were you a rapper before you met Christ? No

2. When did you get saved? I grew up in church so I’ve been saved longer than I can remember lol. I can remember as a child going to the altar for salvation at least 4 times lol.

3. When did you begin to follow the Lord? I rededicated my life in 2008 while I was in college.

3. When did you encounter someone trying to hinder the way that you praise? I grew up in church and it seemed to be a reoccurring theme- “The generation before us doesn’t like how we praise.”

4. When and why did you decide to rap for God’s Kingdom? It was all I was good at. I felt left out of church and worship because I couldn’t play an instrument or sing, but God gave me freedom through examples like David, and King Solomon, who used their words in a poetic/ rhythmic way to express their worship.

5. What made you write the song “Let that boy worship”? Please see questions 1,2,3, Lol jk But seriously, I saw a generation without identity in Christ and a portion of it was due to the lack of support and acceptance. Most young people I encounter have already began to develop unique gifts and abilities that set them apart from the crowd. But unfortunately those gifts don’t traditionally fit into a worship service so they aren’t considered “worship.” This song gives the listener freedom to use their life as worship. So no matter what the gift is as long as its used to glorify God….it’s worship. Worship must be in Spirit and in Truth, and that is not limited to worshipping God with the organ and Background Vocals.

6. If you could tell a new believer in the Lord anything what would it be? “Trust the Process” At times it may seem like following Jesus is pointless and not what you expected…. “Trust the Process.”

7. What keeps you seeking Christ’s face in these evil distracting days? You answered it. “these evil distracting days”

8. What is your purpose with the music you send out? My music’s purpose is to glorify God and encourage others to find a way to do the same.
9. What would you like to say to our generation? Find Purpose…..

10. What would you like to say to the sinner who feels like he/ she can’t come to God? I would say, “ok, great, you’re human too.” Truth is there are many times I’ve felt this way. I was born in sin and shaped in iniquity. Adam and Eve walked and conversed with God on a closer level than most humans could even imagine and when they were caught in sin they hid. David was caught in sin and tried to cover it up. Jonah was disobedient. Judas knew he was going to sell the messiah of for some silver. I guess what im getting at is even the holiest of holy saints feel this way lol. At the end of the day, God already knows you’ve fallen….he wants to help you get back up. Learn from the examples in the bible of people who hid their sin and then read Luke 8:17. Then read Luke 1:50 and it will explain that he has mercy that is endless and flows in wave after wave. He can’t fix it if you won’t give it to him. The oil light in your car won’t go off until you take it into the mechanic. ijs

Such a beautiful way to express the Lord! I’m so very thankful Adrion was available and open to share his heart with us regarding His praise towards our Heavenly Father! I hope you have been encouraged.

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. “Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins.

My view of who God is so limited. I want to know God the way Christ knew God!

IMG_3435

I have been seeing that some believers and unbelievers through conversation with them that they have boxed in their view of God. Meaning the way they view God is how they have heard of Him or experienced Him. But this is such a limited view. I personally don’t remember of being healed of any disease but God is still the healer. I’ve been telling myself I truly want to believe in the God of this universe.

When the Bible says He is my provider I want to believe beyond any doubt. He is our King, Lord, Father, Creator, and so much more. He is I AM. And I haven’t even heard of everything that He is, let alone truly have I believe! He is the All in all. I truly want to believe this. I don’t want to just say it with my mouth, I want to believe. Well I’ve been sharing this with close friends and I came across this scripture today: Matt 11:6 “And blessed is He who is not stumbled because of Me”

Wow Jesus did a lot of things contrary to people’s belief of Him. He turned over tables in a temple (thats a little wild) but some wouldn’t dare call Jesus’ actions wild. He healed a man on the sabbath and the Pharisees were stumbled because of this. But we have to truly know Christ bc what if He does something contrary to our boxed view of Him. I’ve been telling people I want to take my limitations of God off of Him. He is not limited by my view, my circumstances, my resources, or me period.

Jesus said “blessed is he who is not stumbled because of Me” capital M in Me which means not stumbled by Christ. May we all take our boxed view off of Christ and truly see Him for who He reveals to us He is. This has been my experience lately seeing Him for who He reveals himself to me and it is so BEAUTIFUL. My experience and view has been heighten and enlightened.

There’s this singer Steffany Gritzell who was singing spontaneously and she had begun to sing:

There’s a line and I’ve crossed it,

some will say that I lost it,
But who cares what the World thinks,
I’ve found my joy”

I’ve definitely crossed “the norm” line and I’ve found such a fantastic, wonderful, fulfilling joy in Christ and I WILL NEVER be the same AGAIN. I want that Paul faith, that Peter Faith and Abraham Faith. I want to truly believe regardless of how unpractical it may seem. I just want Christ! YES the Lord is practical but some things according to my view is unpractical in my eyes. But He is God and He isn’t limited by my view of Him. He will still be God and be the One fills all in all regardless if I believe, regardless if I limit my view of Him; However I have made a choice to not limit my view of Him anymore. God is the I AM. I want to experience the I AM. Lord reveal to us who you are?!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me.

Dear Church! Let’s have True Oneness- This is God’s desire!

IMG_3416

Dear Church,

What would happened if we had true Oneness and met with each other in Truth and in Spirit. We are in One Body, having One faith, One baptism, One Father, One calling, One Hope, One God. Surely we at least have this in common. Let’s meet on this ground! Let’s fellowship according to this.

Let’s grow in our faith together, separately locally, but together in One body. With man this is impossible but with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. I believe we can have a Oneness that puts the enemy to shame.

I DONT CARE what local Church you meet with, WE HAVE THE same Father, same Spirit, so let’s enjoy Christ together as life putting our differences aside and love the Lord and others together! You may have arrived at a different level of knowledge of Christ, so keep that to you until the Lord says I’m ready for it. But what do we commonly know about Christ together- Let’s fellowship on that ground! No more divisions. No more arguments.

Let’s just pray for one another. We can do this my brothers and sisters! WE MUST DO THIS my Brothers and Sister- this is God’s desire that we WOULD BE ONE as God the Father and Jesus the Son is One we too must be one. We can do this Church! Let’s do this.

Lord keep us One in YOU! Only In You can we be truly ONE! #TheChurch aka #BodyOfChrist aka #BelieversOfChrist #WeAreOneInSpirit #LetsGrowInOneFaith ❤️

How to fight the enemy in these evil days?!

Do you have all the tools you need to be successful in a fight against the enemy in these evil days?! Loving God above all else and walking in the Spirit you spontaneously put on the Armour of God!

Ephesians 6:13-20 tells us how to fight against the enemy:

img_3246.png13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (The Full Armor of God is needed for this fight, scratch everything YOU thought you needed. Your full attire and weapons aka armor is below)

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, (Practice speaking God’s Word which is Truth and be found in Christ which is our righteousness) “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.” Romans 1:17

15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. (Go into all the World and preach the Gospel to all creation (this includes Satan and the enemyMark 16:15 [Preach the gospel Your local grocery store, gas station, bus stop, school, work and on vacation])

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Romans 10:17. Position yourself to hear the Word of God. Reading the Word and Hearing God speak is needed)

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (God’s salvation, His speaking and the Bible is needed for this war) If you don’t know Scriptures get some planted in you by memorizing them (it helps me if I sing them, any way you can remember them do it)

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (The quickest way to get in the spirit is to say, “Lord Jesus” The Bible says that no one can say Jesus is Lord except for by the Holy Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:3 and “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.“) John 1:1

19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, (Pray)

20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. (déclare the gospel boldly in the Lord Jesus)

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you came into the World to die for my sins. 

The Bible says, “anyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” Romans 10:13. Please share with a believer if this is your first time to pray that prayer! And please feel free to let me know by leaving a comment!

Why praising God is super important?!

 

IMG_3197

So the Lord has been completely wrecking my life in every way possible since Friday 6/30/2017.

I told the Lord that I wanted to experience the Lord in every way that He wants me to experience Him! I have no idea why when I have told some people this, they immediately say be careful for what you ask for! Maybe it’s because the of the story of Job in the Bible and all of the afflictions he experienced but he also experienced God’s deliverence and reward. But I do know that God has not given me a “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 1 Tim 1:7. So the enemy might creep in and try to give me fear about telling God that I want to experience him in every way that He wants me to experience Him! I believe that this is God’s will! So I’ll simply say Amen!

Recently, I started to get anxiety and  I believe I was led by the Lord to study the Bible by seeing who in the Bible can relate to my experiences and how they dealt with it so I brought to the testimony of “Saul where David played the lyre / harp for him when an evil spirit from God came upon him and the enemy came and tormented him and then Saul was refreshed and the evil spirit left him.” 1 Sam 16:23. I began to listen to  Be still by Steffany Frizzel and my nerves was calm. Now I also listen to classical music as well! It is soothing!

Then that led me to believe that music has to have a wonderful use in the Kingdom of God, (seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness and the rest will be added to you.) Matt 16:33.

So I googled praise and I came up on this blog 7 reasons why singing matters and it really blessed my life. This blog provided some scriptures why praise / singing is important. Remember the Walls of Jericho? How did the walls come down?! By being obedient to God commands / instructions saying “circle the city of Jericho one time for 6 days and in the 7th day circle the city 7 times, on the seventh time the walls came tumbling down and when the 7 priest sound the trumpets and on the people shall shout!” Joshua 6:1-27. Music gets you ready for war and can be very tools you use for war!

My best friend was telling me how the Devil was basically the music director in Heaven before he was kicked out of heaven and that’s why the music industry is the way it is. She told me music enters our beings without permission! Look at the music you hear when you go into stores, or the music you listen to in your car, or the music you listen to at home. My BF told me that that’s why we can wake up with that same song in our mind! How great is this if we use music in the way God intended for music to be used. How terribly district I’ve if we use music in the way Satan is using because he only comes to steal from us, kill us, and destroy us. But “Jesus has come that we may have Life and life more abundantly” John 10:10.

I’m on a mission to enjoy the Lord in every way he has intended on me to enjoy Him and I believe one of the highest ways to enjoy Him is praise and worship and this is from my on personally experiences, “Let everything that has breath praise God” Psalm 150:6. This is a command not a suggestion. There is spiritual significances to praising! My Auntie told me recently that the enemy can get in when we pray but when we praise, depression leaves, anxiety leaves, the Devil flees, we become encouraged and empowered in praise. God likes praise! I think that’s the reason he commands it and it is something we actually spontaneously will do when see who He is! “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” “I tell you,” he replied, “If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19: 38-40. Its something about God’s creation that feels compelled to praise. I believe God wants us to choose to praise Him! Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “For I have set before you Life and death and blessings and curse; therefore choose life that you and your seed may live!” I believe we can choose life even in the music we listen to.

My question is who/what are you praising?!

 

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you came into the World to die for my sins.

You are a target! By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_3087

So the Devil is hater! We know this right? We know that the Devil and his demons number 1 mission is to take us OUT! No matter the cost! He will lose his own demons to ensure he takes us out. You are his favorite target.

He will do whatever it takes to make sure you don’t reach Christ. And if you meet Christ, he will do what it takes to make sure you don’t spend time with God to get to know Him and His character. And if you do spend time with God, he’ll make sure you spend minimum to no time in the Bible, so you will never learn and become équipt to defeat The evil spirits. I’ve experienced the distractions so I know the Devil just doesn’t give up.

Satan has a plan for you. That plan is to try to kill you. If he can’t kill you then he will try to destroy you. If he doesn’t destroy you then he will try to steal everything God has for you. I heard a person recently say regarding racism in America that they feel like they have a target on their back and they were absolutely right. Satan wants to take you out. Jesus said this with His own lips in John 10:10 it says, “The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy you but I come, that you may have Life and life more abundantly.” It is so easy to think that our fight is against people in this World that do us wrong, the government and its officials or the people that are against God but the Bible is sure to let us know that THAT is definitely not the case, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12.

The evil spirits we are fighting are équipt to lead us into temptation, to steal from us, to distract us, to keep us in sin, to keep us addicted to sinful things, to pervert us, to keep us from God, to keep us blind to the truth, to deceive us, to deafen us to God’s voice, to kill us, to enslave us, to overwork us and most importantly to defeat us. And they will do all of this and MUCH MORE. If we don’t equip ourselves with the Word of God and position ourselves in Christ, they will win. We choose. We get to choose our destiny. The Bible tells us that “God has set before you life and death, blessing and curse, therefore choose life that you and your seed may live. In loving Jehovah our God, by listening to His voice and holding fast to Him for He is our life and the length of our days.” Deuteronomy 30: 19-20.

Death and life are presented before us each day, blessing and curses are laid before us each day and WE choose daily which portion we will have for our life. Choosing Christ was not a One time decision. NO, we must choose Him every day-all day and choose Him above everything else. If we don’t choose Jesus who in the Bible is called the way, reality/truth, and life (John 14:6) then we are defaulted to choosing death and curses. There is no in between with God.

Now please don’t get discouraged choosing Christ as your life is easy when you are enjoying Him as your daily bread. When we are In Christ/In the Spirit we spontaneously choose the right path, the way, life, and blessings. So we shouldn’t have anxiety over this, NO we should just enjoy Jesus as our life and we will spontaneously be transformed, renewed, refreshed, and empowered to defeat the Devil and his demons. This is awesome sauce! In Christ WE WIN. Remember when Jesus said, “It is finished” on the cross? John 19:30. He defeated the Devil. All we have to do is position ourselves In Christ and we will overcome this World just Like Jesus has overcame the World. John 16:33.

Prayer (aka contacting God) helps in knowing which way to take. Fellowship with believers is important to our taking the right way. Loving Jesus is the way. Spending time with Him, getting to know Him through His word, listening to Him speak to you, and gathering and growing with believers is the way. These things keep us in the Light. These things keep us on the right path. So today will you choose whom you will serve?!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media.
