Reflection, What I Am Learning In This Season

Today I just want to thank God for allowing me to see another birthday "when so many did not live to see another year.  I believe; “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Psalm 118:17,Isaiah 54:17

God I am still here serving you with all my heart. God today, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts” Psalm 139:23

Father, thank you for teaching me to wait on you. "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

I acknowledge my scriptural confidence is encoded in Romans 8:37-39 acknowledging I am “more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" 

I am thankful for my own individual trials from time to time which are necessary to confirm who we are as Christians. "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;  Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed" 2 Corinthians 4:7-9

Situations are simply waiting on us to see what our scriptural responses will be in the NOW moment.

As Christians we must actively scripturalize each situation with scripture and watch the scripture take root, trusting God because He is ABLE! Jesus said unto him, "if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. Mark 9:23

Today is a new season for me because I am scripturally wiser. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever."  Psalm 111:10

One of the most profound lessons I have learnt throughout the years is that scriptural application is intervention prevention for all situations. "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Knowledge overspending versus knowledge understanding is key to scriptural growth and unadulterated scriptural development. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."Hosea 4:6

I used the term overspending because it is a mirror of deep extrapolated revelation that is usually hidden that comes from a divine source of God revealing the unrevealed to those who seek Him by asking. The key word is ask. "For every one that sketch receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew 7:8

As we seek out knowledge and truth, truth and knowledge will resonate within one's spirit to make an Ecclesiastes 1:9 conclusion. Knowledge is not for everyone and it is important to respect one's self-understanding or agree to disagree. 

I believe scriptural authority application is encrypted in my scriptural God based on my own private/public relationship I have with God.  I have an understanding there are over three million "gods" and counting. In this season it is important to clarified which God or "god" one is serving.  It is a tragic some manifestations one may or may not witness in some of our churches lately are anti-scriptural manifestations as the source is from the realm of darkness not from the realm of God outlined in Romans 13. 

It is a fact, some of our church leaders have a fetish relationship with power and control instead of having an authentic relationship with God these leaders are Ten Commandments breakers. The spirit of control is anti-God anti-truth, anti-scriptural and anti-Christ.

"Thou shalt have no other gods before meFor where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."  Matthew 6:21-24

Life is all about seasonal situations and seasonal experiences which are needed to keep me unconditionally grounded in this scriptural race to race victoriously to the scripturally finish line. "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

Without scripture it is impossible to act within the spirit of scriptural integrity. A child of God or a "doer of the word" scriptural applicability Christian in my opinion,is one who executes Jesus Christ's examples 24/7 which are founded on the premise of human kindness, support unconditional love and compassion. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV)

God,  I thank you for the spiritual gift of faith 1 Corinthians 12:9, acknowledging (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) and having the tenacity to trusting you even when it makes no sense. 2 Corinthians 5:7

God, today establish "blessed are the poo r in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for hey shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 

God, continue to give me the divine strength to reposition my territorial position and to exercise my scriptural rights to continue to; "fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. My sole purpose is to acknowledge "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:" 2 Timothy 4:7, 1 Timothy 6:12

Continue to order my steps Mighty God to step out of self, religiosity, legalism, false doctrines and some self-ideologies that are anti-scriptural practices to demonstrate "ministry of the word" to the best of my scriptural ability. 

God, on this day, keep me humble and secure in the bible to overcome this world that is in crisis. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attend unto the prayer that is made in this place." 2 Chronicles 7:14-15

God I give you all the glory and on this day 9, 072, 256 have viewed my Google+ page in the last two years who was impacted by scripture, Jesus Christ, devotions, words of encouragement and personal thoughts. I pray right now at least one person was encouraged in the midst of discouragement.

God on this day it is an honour to call you my FATHER. 

May this song inspire someone right now and may you scripturally birth the non birthed within someone today to give them HOPE to cope. "Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8
To those of you who have gone through so much, giving up is not an options for you to exercise today. Stand strong and FOCUS on fixing you, healing you and to be true to you. Life is about love, acceptance, self-forgiveness and letting go to foster profound growth. I pray today on this day you will find your own strength to impact another human being in a positive way.

As I focus on my scriptural life purpose, my personal commitment is to always look to God scripturally claiming; "The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psalm 24:1

Thank you for all your prayers, love and unconditionally support directly and indirectly. If you are a Christian let is on purpose never give anyone a reason to say, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” Mahatma Gandhi
