A Troubled Heart!

 1 John 1: 9 AMP

“If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and cleanses us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose].”

If you have been reading my blog you would have picked up that I have a troubled heart. Yes, I feel there is sin in my life that has been weighing me down and many times I feel overwhelmed by my past transgressions. The truth is I was disobedient to the Lord and still did as I pleased which to this day is hanging over my head constantly.

To summarise this all in one word “guilt” is eating me up. Why don’t you just confess your sins to the Lord and get on with your life? Is what I have heard a couple of times, sure enough, I have and I even said I am sorry to the people involved. So then what’s the problem you ask? I think honestly I cannot forgive myself for being so suborned.

Today I have made up my mind and will keep on repeating this verse until I believe it. “If we admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful to cleanses us continually from all unrighteousness.”

Please pray that this verse will be rooted in my heart today, I need your prayers to move on. Thank you.

Prayer

Abba Father, humbly I pray that You will hear my heart and my prayers. Lord, You know my sin, I have spoken to You about it, I confessed it to You as well as the other. Lord, humbly I pray that the Holy Spirit will help me accept that You forgive sins and that I am forgiven. Help me also forgive myself, in the Holy Name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen

Your Heart #Wednesday

Matthew 15: 18

“But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a man.”

In the past couple of months, you and I have been checking my attitude and my behaviour. The funny thing is I completely forgot about my heart. The Lord Jesus tells us that “whatever we say through our mouths comes from our hearts.”

We know that our hearts are secretive things even the prophet Jeremiah speaks about the mysterious of our hearts “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17: 9 KJV.

Not too long ago my husband turns around telling me that “we have problems in our marriage.” I was totally at a loss what did I miss? I asked him what the problem was but he didn’t reveal the problem to me. I have been working at being kind, loving and understanding but I still am in the dark when it comes to what the problem is.

In the meantime, I believe God is in control and that He has sorted out the problem. “Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart.” Psalm 37 verses 4 Amplified Bible.

Prayer

Abba Father, Lord You know that I have made it my business to spend time with You. I am hungry for a new touch of the Holy Spirit in my own heart. Lord, You know the secrets of my heart, what I dream about and what I want. Today, humbly I stand before You asking that You will grant me the desires of my own heart. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen.

I hear their words and I feel their attitudes towards me!

2 Peter 3: 18 AMP

“but grow [spiritually mature] in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory (honour, majesty, splendour), both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.”

You know they say familiarity breeds content it is so true. I watch people and listen to how they speak to each other. I also know the relationship and see how disrespectful people act. I have also noticed their mouths are bitter and the words come out twisted.

I hear these words spill out of their mouths and I see their motives and attitudes. It frustrates me but then if I mouth my own opinion I feel even worse. I need to learn to watch my words, it is my heart’s desire to grow in grace.

Always taking a backseat isn’t something I deal well with but if that means I will grow grace I had better start practicing it. The sad part until I learn how to deal with people who keep on antagonizing me I will write this test over and over again until I pass it.

From my point of view I have to constantly work at forgiving them because I don’t want to carry any grudges it won’t work, I don’t want to become all bitter and twisted. I hope I was able to encourage you to stay graceful act with grace and forgive people, its going to make you feel better about yourself.

Prayer

Lord God, help me to forgive people who say things that cut me, and I see their attitude towards me in their actions. Lord I set them free and pray forgive them too. Help me face each day and grow in Your Spiritual Grace. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen

Perseverance

Nehemiah 6: 15-16 ESV

“So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty-two days. And when all our enemies heard of it, all the nations around us were afraid and fell greatly in their own esteem, for they perceived that this work had been accomplished with the help of our God.”

The minute you understand your purpose you will not allow people to pressure you. You will stand your man in the company. I learned the harder people push you the harder you need to push back. Never once have I backed down, my purpose was clear I wanted to be a successful person.

I realized that people will pressure you to the extent that you become fearful when in fact the pressure is a ploy to get rid of you. The reasons are simple they cannot get on with you and would love you to leave.

In the old days when I felt the pressure of people manipulating and pressurizing me, I would break down in the bathroom and pray, crying and praying calling out to the LORD my God.

These people hated me, they hated my religion and they wanted me out. They made my life miserable and very difficult with unreasonable demands. I stuck it out and I prayed about it all the time. I have the favour of God in my life today.

Prayer

Abba Father, with unreasonable demands in our lives, please help each one of us face our adversaries. We have You, Lord, clothed with the righteousness of God in Christ we can stand against any difficulties. Taking up our position in You thank You for Your supernatural favour in our lives today. In the Holy Name of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen

Poor Choices

 2 Timothy 4: 7 AMP

“I have fought the good and worthy and noble fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith [firmly guarding the gospel against error].”

 If there is someone that has made numerous mistakes, then I am that person. They say the older you get the more you reflect and regret. Looking back on my own life I have many regrets.

 As I think about Paul who wrote these precious words it struck me that God is still in control. Yes, I made poor choices and some I feel were detrimental too. I constantly feel bad about the decisions I made but at the end of the day it’s water under the bridge and there is nothing I can do to undo what I did.

 In the meantime, God has been working and I have become more aware of Him in my life. I realise that I am changing each day, bit by bit. If you live with me you will understand the changes that are happening in my life. If you don’t know me that well you might think I have always been so nice.

 Prayer

Abba Father, thank You, for second, third and many chances with You. As I reflect on my past I realize I have slipped up badly and made such bad decisions. Please, Lord, I have brought it to Your throne, forgive me.

I dedicate my life back into Your hands and I pray that You will release Your Holy Spirit over each and every person reading my blog today. Touching their lives, bringing miracles, healing and supernatural favour with You Lord and with people. Blessing untold, in the Holy Name of Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen

Stay focused, draw near to God.

Zechariah 2: 5 AMP

“For I, declares the LORD, “will be a wall of fire around her [protecting her from enemies], and I will be the glory in her midst.”

As I think about the scripture referred to above it is true for me that I cannot do anything without the help of the Holy Ghost in my life. I declare the words of the LORD today in my own life that a wall of fire is around me, protecting me from my enemies, and God will be the glory in my midst. As I face today I pray that the Lord will strengthen me to face each and every situation in my life.

Just as I am, I focus my whole life on the LORD my God. I want to be a pleasing aroma to God. I want to be the person He sees when looking down to earth. I have so much to learn and I want to learn as much as I can. The Holy Ghost is with me and will enable me to whatever I need to do.

We cannot get through life without someone to help us. As Christians, we need God in our lives with the help of the Holy Ghost we are able to face any situation.

Prayer

Lord my God, thank You for looking after me. Thank You for the Holy Ghost and thank You that I can call on You any time of day. Lord this is a new day and without the help of the Holy Ghost, I cannot make it. I have enemies that cannot wait to smear my name and speak ill of me. I forgive them Lord and set them free, please forgive them too and set them free. I pray this in the Holy Name of Your Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen

I am searching for the presence of God.

If there is someone that truly is concerned about my Spiritual wellbeing it’s me. I am constantly checking myself and especially my attitude. I have come to realize that compassion is something I lack and I need to be more compassionate. I also am seeking God fervently.

Zechariah 8: 23 ESV

“Thus says the LORD of hosts: In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.””

I know my Spiritual life is in progress and God knows my heart. I have been truly doing everything I can to draw near to Him. In the past couple of weeks I, have been doing everything possible to make sure that I am doing my utmost to draw near to God. I believe that I need to be rooted and grounded in the Lord and I have to make it my business to get into the Word. I have been doing this on a daily basis.

I feel that I need to become activated and the only way this will happen is when the Holy Spirit is welcome in my own life. Without the Holy Spirit in my life I will have lost the plot. I feel so envious of the people who have a personal relationship with God and who you can spot a mile off. The Lord is in them and people can see it in the way they behave.

I do not know how this is supposed to work, but I have started my own personal mission. I confessed my sin and prayed about my hang-ups in my life.  I also am dealing with my own person attitude towards people and myself and God. Then I am learn to show compassion with I know is lacking in my own life. I also know that in order for God to work in my life I need to testify, which I started. It isn’t easy but these are my learnings.

Prayer

O LORD, God, You know me better than I actually know myself. I don’t know what the process is going forward to become rooted in You. I don’t know how I will do this, so from where I stand I am doing the best I can. I want to be able to commune with You on a daily basis, and I believe that I am. Lord I also want to be seen as someone that Your Spirit is resting on. I love You Lord; I want to honor You with my own life. In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, Amen
