I'm On God's Time

“What does that have to do with you and me, woman?” Jesus asked. “My hour has not yet come.” “Do whatever he tells you,” his mother told the servants. Now six stone water jars had been set there for Jewish purification. Each contained twenty or thirty gallons. “Fill the jars with water,” Jesus told them. So they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the headwaiter.” And they did.

Here’s the thing about life as a Christian … According to Ecclesiastes 3 we are on a different time-clock than those who do not believe. Why ? Because we have to wait.

How long did it take Jesus to be raised – 3 days (1 Corinthians 15:4)

How many days did Esther fast – 3 days ( Esther 4:15)

How many days did Paul fast after his conversion – 3 days (Acts 9:9)

And even still there are many stories in the Bible of those who had to wait YEARS like Joseph and decades like David for their time.

One of the worst things someone can do in life and ministry is move ahead of God. The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 1:45,

When you returned, you wept before the Lord , but he didn’t listen to your requests or pay attention to you.
Deuteronomy 1:45 CSB
https://bible.com/bible/1713/deu.1.45.CSB

That is the consequence of moving ahead or without God ! He won’t hear you ! So in this season just be STILL ! BE STILL and know that He is God. Stop worrying so much about your life and learn the power of a quiet spirit (Psalms 131).

Prayer

Lord help me to be content and not worry about things that do not concern me. Help me to focus on prayer (Psalms 91) and trusting you through the process. In Jesus Name I pray thank God Amen.

In Jesus Name,

Jesus As My Valentine

***

Let’s be real … being single while every one is bae’d up is not fun. It’s not. And sometimes you feel alone .. worthless .. and wondering what does she have that I dont ?

But The Bible says,

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. Give her the reward of her labor, and let her works praise her at the city gates.
Proverbs 31:30‭-‬31 CSB
https://bible.com/bible/1713/pro.31.30-31.CSB

One of the greatest lessons Jesus taught me in the wilderness is learning my self-value through God. In other words , I dont need some fool to tell me how I look while comparing me to some other woman. This is the thing. As Christians we have to learn our identity in GOD. Which means we dont learn from the latest rapper , we dont learn from social media, but we learn who we are by following GOD ! With God , every day is Valetines day.. why ?

  • Because He told me I am fearfully and Wonderfully made according to Psalms 139:14
  • He told me I am anointed according to Psalms 105:15
  • And He told me that I am chosen and called for Such A Time As This according to Esther 4:14-15

…. So what did God tell you? When you face Christian Warfare against your identity you have to combat the devil with THE WORD OF GOD.

When he tells that you are not beautiful, you speak that you are of a royal priesthood – 1 Peter 2:9

When the devil tells you are a failure you say “I have good success” – Joshua 1:8

And when the devil makes you feel bad because you are single or aren’t married on Valetines Day you have to remember that you have learned to be brought low and abound – Philippians 4:12-13

YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST THAT GIVES YOU STRENGTH !

Loneliness is not an excuse for sexual sin. Sexual sin comes with great and dangerous consequences. So dont let the devil ensnare you into trap, but instead focus on God.

In Jesus Name,

Diamond

The Bible Series: Drawing Close To God : Genesis 14

“Breaking Free From Being A Coward”

In the Bible there are so many stories of wars and the triumphant victories that came through Jesus. What many people do not know is that Abram , along with David, was indeed a warrior… I mean it makes sense.. I think this is where David got his crazy from.

Anyways…

In our Christian walk The Book of Revelation says,

Revelation 21:7-8 New Living Translation (NLT)

All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

“But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

So it is very apparent that as you draw close to God HE IS GOING to deliver you from being a coward. So here are some notes from the study of Genesis 14.

***

  • Point 1 : Genesis 14:1-8 NLT In this chapter we learn the circumstance of ABRAM before he goes out and fights for his nephew LOT. As I was doing this study and asking God what was the revelation behind this God said, “Do not be afraid of earthly kings.”

The Bible says in Daniel ,

Daniel 3:16-28 New Living Translation (NLT)

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

The Blazing Furnace

19 Nebuchadnezzar was so furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that his face became distorted with rage. He commanded that the furnace be heated seven times hotter than usual. 20 Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 21 So they tied them up and threw them into the furnace, fully dressed in their pants, turbans, robes, and other garments. 22 And because the king, in his anger, had demanded such a hot fire in the furnace, the flames killed the soldiers as they threw the three men in. 23 So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, securely tied, fell into the roaring flames.

24 But suddenly, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, “Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?”

“Yes, Your Majesty, we certainly did,” they replied.

25 “Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god[a]!”

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came as close as he could to the door of the flaming furnace and shouted: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!”

So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fire. 27 Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke!

28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.

Before a major promotion from GOD there will always be a major persecution and fire. It will ALWAYS happen. A lot of times people want the promotion but don’t want the fire… but the Bible says that to much is given much is required.

  • Point 2 : As you study the verses Genesis 14:15-16 you will see that God will allow something of value to be taken from you to awaken the WARRIOR in You. A lot of times we have experienced abusive situations that demoralize us, but it is a attack of the enemy to make you a coward. Through Jesus, God will restore you to the place of Peace and Christ Like strength (Philippians 4:13) through HIS name.
  • Point 3: What people fail to realize is that there is a blessing after the war. In Genesis 14 you see what Abram has to go through to gather LOT .. but in that same chapter you see Melchizedek bless Abram. In your hard times, as you press forward and draw close to God you have to trust HIM that your blessing is after the war. Trust Him according to HIS WORD.

Scriptures To Remember To Make Your New Year Strong in God and Faith

1.  Psalm 20:7 New King James Version (NKJV)

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.

2.  Proverbs 3:5-6 New King James Version (NKJV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall [a]direct your paths.

3.  Galatians 5:19-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

19 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

4.  1 Corinthians 6:9-10 New Living Translation (NLT)

Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.

5.  Revelation 21:7-8 New Living Translation (NLT)

All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

“But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

6.  Revelation 22:15 New Living Translation (NLT)

15 Outside the city are the dogs—the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie.

  • Isaiah 54:17 New King James Version (NKJV)

17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

New King James Version (NKJV
