The more I grow in Christ, and the more I know His Holy word, I am convicted, when I say or do something wrong.
My spirit, just knows, when I am out of line so to speak. Or if I somehow get into a place, where I know, I have done something or said something, that is not strong, is not right for lack of better words in the sight of God. I know it…
Sometimes, we compromise. Yet we should be strong in who we are in Christ. If we know the truth, and we are free, totally free, as Christ has told us, and we have given our hearts, we are grateful for another chance. Yet, we live in this world, we are called not to be a part of the world, but we can stumble. We can even fall.
I love repentance for this very reason, but with that said, and knowing we can be given grace. Do we compromise who we are? I suppose, because I understand, that grace cannot be extended without repentance, what about those, who have given their hearts to Christ, but they think that is it? As babies in Christ, do we think we have nothing else to do? I see the difference, because I am no longer a baby in Christ.
But babies…without truth, or understanding of Gods ways, and yes even bad doctrine. They don’t think they have to do anything, any more, and they think they have a place in heaven. They actually in some twisted sense, believe, it now gives them permission to sin. Their salvation, is in tact, they think….so they do what they want, and sin. They compromise Gods grace.
You know, it is a good thing to know good true, King James scriptures. Because the other versions, compromise a word here and there. And it does take away the holiness. So, when I look at my King James, I see. God is not mocked.
God is not mocked my friends. And we never get away with anything, we say or do, for the final outcome, is documented in the book of life. And yes our names if we have given our hearts to Christ is in the lambs book of life. Two separate books.
But, if we play with our salvation, if we play with what Christ has done for us, we can have our names removed, or blotted, out of the Lambs book of life. Once saved, is not always saved. And many would argue with that, but do your own search, and see, use the King James Bible as the search, and look for words that mention “blot” or “blotted.”
Every thing we have said or done, is being recorded. We are judged by our words. I suppose I am writing this, myself, because I do have the fear of God. And I want to be stronger, as a Christian, and yes as an ambassador of Christ.
I don’t like hitting people on the head with the Bible, yet, I know, I have to be firm in my own belief. I cannot compromise. I found myself, yesterday chatting with a friend, but I felt like I compromised who I was in Christ, and worse, that I compromised what Gods word says. I repented.
Such a balance we have to find, in who we are in Christ. But truly, we have to be mindful yes, of His grace. But do we compromise? One compromise, can lead to another, and then we would be totally deceived by the enemy. I just want us to see, because I know I have not heard this message, from any prominent ministry, but one must be so careful.
I love the Lord, I love serving Him, and I pray He uses me, but I also want to be someone who speaks truth, boldly, and not compromising, yet with love. I wanted this person to feel love, and not the wrath of God.
Yet, could we do a disservice if we are not saying exactly what God says? Lord forgive us. Help us. This is where the word “judging” can come in, because many know truth, but do not say anything, because the enemy can use judging to interrupt truth. Yet we are called to expose darkness. Do we, speak truth or do we compromise?
This can cover so very, very much. But, please my friends, do not take your salvation for granted. I don’t know what you have learned, or if you come from a place, where you think once saved, is always saved. Christ told us, that there would be many who would come to him, and say didn’t we cast out devils, in your name. And He would say….depart, I never knew you.Those are words you do not want to hear, when you stand before Christ, at the end of your lifetime.
Be very aware of Gods grace. But try, my friends, try, to not compromise who you are. Repentance, before a Holy God, being humble, trying to please Him, is what counts. And why? In fear of Him like the many scriptures tell us. Oh the fear of God is healthy!
I think of this example, say you have a boss, you love, he is kind, he is generous, he is flexible. But when he says don’t do something, don’t do it. And why, because you want your job. You want to please this boss, because you know, your livelihood is at stake. You need your job. Well, I look at it this way myself. I know God is love, I know He is kind. He is generous, He extends grace, but I have to take all of His word, and not compromise it. And why, because I do want to serve Him, but I also know my salvation is at stake. I need God, I need to please Him.
Sometimes, when I hear some pastors, they act like God flip flops. He does not. When it comes to grace, and the law, they think that is it, but all Christ did, was save us from the law of sin and death. Not His law! Not His commandments! They still stand. Whats wrong with us, if we cannot see that? We would be deceived.
So friends, keeping a humble repentance before Christ. This is healthy, and yes God will extend grace, but we have to be aware. We have to be sorry, we cannot compromise. And I even say this a few days before Halloween, because many Christians think it is o.k. to celebrate this evil holiday, and it stems from hell. The bottom line is it does not honor God. Don’t compromise your blessings, or your place with God, or even the fear of God, to play in this spiritual realm. Fearing God keeps us out of trouble.
I hope this makes you and me both think. How precious our salvation is. Christ gave His life, and He suffered so greatly for our sins. How can we not look at the cross, and see what He did, and openly compromise what He did. Oh God forgive us, and God forbid. Please friends, take this to heart.
Much love, I share it, not wanting to hit anybody on the head, yet so mindful of what Christ did. I am sorry, Lord, help me not to ever compromise. Especially, because you gave your life, and paid the penalty for my sins.
BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD I AM WHAT I AM: AND HIS GRACE WHICH WAS BESTOWED UPON ME WAS NOT IN VAIN; BUT I LABOURED MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN THEY ALL: YET NOT I, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS WITH ME. I CORINTHIANS 15:10.
Just my thoughts….Elena Ramirez
I dedicate this to my friend Shirley Duran. I love her in Christ, and pray truth will prevail. Gods truth.

WHERE NO COUNSEL IS, THE PEOPLE FALL, BUT IN THE MULTITUDE OF COUNSELORS THERE IS SAFETY. Proverbs 11:14
Sometimes, God gives us warnings, that we are headed in the wrong direction, and we could fall. And I think common sense, would tell us to heed those warnings, so you could avoid a fall. I want to counsel you here, so you can be safe. And perhaps avoid a fall, physically or spiritually. We are called to expose the darkness. And that’s what I am doing.
Falling, could be spiritually or physically, and even as I write this, I plead the blood of Jesus, for protection. You see, when you understand Gods principles, and you understand His truths, and ways, from His holy word, you want to avoid a fall. You don’t want the consequences, of a fall. You don’t want the hardship, the pain, the sorrow from a fall.
And yes, this can be a metaphor. As you look at this picture. But symbolically, when you look at this sign, you might be able to comprehend, and avoid a fall. And I believe God brought it to my attention as I was driving. In fact, this sign was in the neighborhood where my uncle used to live, after he died, and He had served God. So to me, it was a message, that I saw the urgency to share, to warn someone that a fall could be ahead.
This is why I am writing this. Because I believe, and know, Gods ways are not mocked. And you reap what you sow. So, looking at this, and understanding the principle of something, that goes against Gods word, one must know that this is one who could receive a curse, in that fall. And who wants that? No one.
There are many things, that can contribute to us falling. And really without knowledge of Gods word, one can be headed for a fall. God has taught me His word, throughout my life, and from my King James Bible, that I use, totally for its anointing and holiness, I will not trust another. This is one way, I avoid a fall.
Any other Bible to me is corrupted, as meanings change, the holiness, and anointing is gone. And with that said, I recommend using a King James. But now as the season is changing, and we are in the middle of October, I want to counsel you, and advise you to avoid the fall of Halloween.
Halloween is one of those holidays, where people, do not have the concept and understanding that it is evil. That it stems from hell. That it gives place to the devil. That it does not honor God. They think its o.k. to dress up, and they really don’t think they are giving place to the devil, or doing anything bad. But just in the association of this evil holiday, they are. And this can lead to more. I know, I used to dress up, and even as a kid trick or treated. For candy. But I am so glad, I learned that this is wrong, and I repented. I did not know it offended God, but it does.
Did you know we are told, in Gods holy word, that we cannot eat from the Lords table, and the table of devils?
BUT I SAY, THAT THE THINGS WHICH GENTILES SACRIFICE THEY SACRIFICE TO DEVILS, AND NOT TO GOD: AND I WOULD NOT THAT YE SHOULD HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH DEVILS. YE CANNOT DRINK THE CUP OF THE LORD, AND THE CUP OF DEVILS: YE CANNOT BE PARTAKERS OF THE LORDS TABLE, AND OF THE TABLE OF DEVILS. I Corinthians 10-20-21.
Have you taken Holy Communion with Christ? As He has told us to do it in remembrance of Him? Then if you have, you know, He calls us to holiness. He calls us to a more excellent way with Him. He says be Holy, for He is holy. This means you have eaten from the table of the Lord. He is the bread of life, and you don’t want mold on the spiritual food you eat.
So no, one cannot eat from the table of the Lord, and the table with the devil. So in remembrance of him, don’t eat that candy, nor your kids. Nor dress up, nor celebrate it.
In fact, I feel so strong about this in my spirit, I won’t even serve candy. I don’t want to address this holiday in any way. I won’t decorate my home, to celebrate it. Its evil to me. And the history of it shows this, and what is done on this day. No, I want no association with it. And I did repent for being naive.
See what you want to show God, is that you want your life to reflect honor to Him. That you want to be holy. That you want to please Him. If our hearts are not right to want to fear him, and please Him. Yes we can fall.
In fact, I would not even attend a church, that has that as an alternative. Because it is still promoting the holiday. It still promotes dressing up, and serving from the devils table. This is how we can avoid a fall.
And in so many areas of our life friends, we need to heed Gods word. Yes, it takes knowledge, of Gods Holy word. It takes understanding to know what offends God, so we do not do these things like pagans, or those that are lost. We have to seek God, we do reap what we sow, and you do not want to fall in these things. They bring curses. This is why I wrote my last e-book. (See information in photo for references)
Friend, its up to you. The choices are always yours. God is a gentleman, He does not make us do anything. But if we love Him, we choose His ways. We choose to try and make the attempt to live our lives, in the way, He intended. No the world, will not understand your choice, to do things His way. You may even get static from those who do not see the evil in this Holiday. But if you love God, you want to avoid a fall. You want to fear Him, and know the consequences of your choices can cause a fall.
Compromise, is disobedience in the sight of God.
This is just one example, but we always have to be so careful. And it really begins with repentance. For you see, we all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, we can be deceived, but you don’t want that, so repenting, and being aware of what Gods word says can avoid a fall. This is just written, so maybe you can see it, and get on a path, that truly gives honor to Christ, for He is the way, the truth and the life. John 14:6.
Blessings, and praying my words will help you avoid a fall. More then anything the Holy words from Father, to instruct you. I am just the messenger, I am just wanting to help. But He is the one, who will hold you up. He is the one that will speak by the Holy spirit, and give you discernment.
And for the record, I plead the blood of Jesus, for myself, my family, and loved ones, and pray we avoid any falling ourselves. Spiritually or physically. To give glory to God. To bless God, so He can hold us up. And I really believe pleasing God, will hold me up, to avoid a fall. He is God….
He deserves obedience in this, even if it may seem like a small thing to do. He is so gracious, but He is not mocked. And someday, when we stand before Him, let it be said, by avoiding Halloween, the record shows you avoided a fall. I pray so…..
I just know, we all would want the blessings and not the curses. Obedience to God brings blessings. Disobedience brings curses.
So…That if we could avoid a fall, we would listen, I do pray you listen.
The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall. Proverbs 10:8.

Have you been rude to someone? A person of God? Maybe it is someone you work with? A neighbor, and here is one, how about somebody here on Facebook or Twitter?
Were you….Snarly, sarcastic, accusatory, argumentative? Maybe you made fun of someone, and their beliefs? Maybe you are jealous? Maybe you gossiped? Maybe you snubbed someone? Maybe you had a chance to stand up for someone, that was the underdog, and you let the opportunity go by, and did not support that someone, in love?
Look we all make mistakes, in relationships. But one thing, I have learned, if you want to get Gods attention…go to that person, and apologize.
Maybe, they don’t even know you spoke against them, or maybe they don’t know you had such harsh feelings toward them. Or had bad intentions toward them. Humble yourself in the sight of God. See this pride thing, will always block blessings. And love will always work, it never fails. God is love.
So go to that person, and admit your fault before them. Try to be friends with someone, you have disliked. Apologize yourself for even being a part of the enemies plan. Because it does cause discord. It does cause division, it causes strife. And sadly it brings curses, and nobody wants that…..
Even if you may be right in some instances. Communication, always brings attention to things, and can resolve issues. And if someone comes to you, be gracious. As well. You see, we all have a responsibility to let love in. We all need to grow.
Being resentful, in the long run, will only hurt you. It is a poison, that poisons the soul. When love, could make amends in the sight of God. I know that I know this works. I have seen God bless me, when I have done this.
Go to that person, and make it right. God will honor your humbleness, and love to go to that person. As much as it may hurt you, you will see the pride go away, and a refreshing will come to you, a blessing from God. Perhaps when you need an answer from God, you will get it.
You see the goal, is always to please God, it is always to be humble before Him. It is always to see the deception of the devil, and make a wrong right, in the sight of God. Be a peacemaker, if anything in your own soul…..
And if you cannot do that, then leave them totally alone, and do not hurt them! I say this as a prayer, and in the name of Jesus! Amen.
BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT WHOSOEVER IS ANGRY WITH HIS BROTHER WITHOUT A CAUSE SHALL BE IN DANGER OF THE JUDGMENT: AND WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY TO HIS BROTHER, RACA, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF THE COUNCIL: BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY THOU FOOL, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF HELL FIRE. THEREFORE IF THOU BRING THY GIFT TO THE ALTAR, AND THERE REMEMBEREST THAT THY BROTHER HAVE OUGHT AGAINST THEE: LEAVE THERE THY GIFT BEFORE THE ALTAR, AND GO THY WAY, FIRST BE RECONCILED TO THY BROTHER, AND THEN COME AND OFFER THY GIFT. MATTHEW 5:22-24

I am not into judging people. I do love and want to love as Christ commanded us. With that said…
I do know right from wrong.
And I have discernment between good and evil. I will call it for what it is. I see the fruit. And we are called to test and try spirits.
And the devil better back off. That scripture is twisted and taken out of context. To put Christians off and to shut up. It is used in defense because basically people don’t want to hear the truth.
And yes there are some who are so religiously regulated who do judge.
But what about when you know truth and you see someone doing wrong? What about knowing the devil is a liar? What about trying to spare a friend hell? Or the consequences of making a wrong choice? What about pleasing God? Hello….
Well all I can say is I will call it for what it is. Our world better wake up. More then ever. I am not into Lala gospel. I have fear of God. And I will not abuse grace.
I don’t want to stand before God and have Him tell me…. Why didn’t you warn my child that was wrong? And what am I going to say?
That I did not want them to think I was judging?….
No, I want to win souls to Christ with truth. I don’t want to send them to the enemy. Their salvation is at stake!
Doesn’t anybody see the discrepancies in all of the judging thoughts? Cannot anyone see the ploy the deception that the enemy uses, twisting that scripture? We all need to know the difference!
JUDGE NOT, THAT YE BE NOT JUDGED. MATTHEW 7:1
There is righteous judgement. We need the mind of Christ. To judge righteously! Did you know you were called to do that too?
JUDGE NOT ACCORDING TO THE APPEARANCE, BUT JUDGE RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT. JOHN 7:24
So next time someone tells you to shut up for judging remind them, you are called to judge righteously. We need to speak truth to one another yes in love. Not hitting people on the head with the Bible. No I am praying for the utterance and the boldness to speak truth. Loud and clear.
And if you are going to speak truth, because you feel led…. You better be prayed up, and have that King James scripture to back it up. I don’t use any other scriptures because the others are corrupted, and their words are also changed, and taken out of context.
You see, there is nothing worse then trying to tell something, to someone, and you don’t have the scripture. To back it up. Yes, I just gave John 7:24, because some would only think there is only one scripture on judging.
I would rather be right with God than people. Yes He has forgiven me of much…And for that, because I know the difference, I want to speak truth!
This is why I write, this is why I pray God use me, this is why I pray you consider sending me to your church. I will give you truth, I will tell you according to Gods Holy word, my King James Bible, and I pray, that ears are opened, and hearts receive that truth, without condemnation.
There is no condemnation in Christ. And I suppose more so, this is why I am addressing this. Have you ever heard someone say, don’t judge me, when you have your own skeletons in your closet? Well that is the whole point. I want people to be saved and free, when I tell them the truth. I am not trying to judge them or hurt them. I am trying to protect them from the devil. So they don’t give the devil a legal right to harass them. When you totally give Christ your heart, and try to obey Him. Jesus cleans out our hearts, and takes those skeletons out of our closet. There is nothing there, to remind you of past sins, but a gratefulness, that He removed that stain of sin.
And for the record, I want to reiterate, about love. Its not my place to judge someone. If it was my place, I probably would fine them, and make them. But that’s not my place nor do I want that responsibility. People make mistakes. Including me. I make them all the time. I come short of the glory of God. So do you.
So no, I am not into making anyone do anything. Christ did not make me. But when I saw the truth I was convinced and humble enough to say God forgive me. I don’t want pride or excuses when it comes to judging.
But I know the difference, because of His grace. I want them to know grace like I know grace, and the sacrifice of Christ.
No I leave all that to God, and He will judge. He is not mocked. Galatians 6:7.
In Christ, and His love, just my thoughts…

Have you ever had company over, and gave your “clean” house a thorough cleaning?
I liken this to our souls as well. You see, when you know company is going to come over, and visit, say for some kind of event, or holiday, you take the extra time, to shine it up, dust, sanitize, and make your home presentable, so your guests, will find it in the best condition.
Recently for Labor Day, we had family over. We are not one for entertaining, but because it was family, we wanted to bless them, and so we did extra, and more when it came to our cleaning.
Now mind you, we keep a clean house, anyway, we are organized for the most part, and we keep up with daily chores, washing dishes, sanitizing etc.
But I have to admit, dusting, is not one of my priorities. In fact, I hate to dust. It still gets done, but it is not done constantly.
But it made me think, about our souls. I don’t think many of us, want to admit this, but I truly believe, even the best Christian, has to maintain your soul, and clean up some things.
Its called growing, it is called repenting, and it is necessary, for your own growth, to every once in a while do some reflecting, and pray, and ask God if there is something that has to be cleansed?
You see, just as we had guests over, Christ visits our hearts, and souls as well. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Christ to find something in my soul, that would “grieve the Holy Spirit.”
I just know myself that well, when I am feeling off, maybe cold, or indifferent, that I have to run to the throne, and seek my dear Lord. I need to repent, I need to be humble, I need to cry to Him, and say Lord, I don’t understand. But help me, help my faith.
I guess this is why I have written my two books, about faith, and curses, because I so want to please God, and I want to help others as well, but I know, how things can affect me, when I am not right with God, or I am off.
There are so many ministries, that do not address, this, in fact, they are into self, or pleasing yourself, and that is so wrong. We have to make pleasing God the priority.
So you have to do some reflecting, you do have to discipline yourself, you do have to ask God, and “try” to do that housecleaning. Yes, God will make the difference, and wash you by the blood of Jesus, but you have to check out your robes of righteousness. Is there a stain, from a thought, a sin, a place, where hopefully you did not let the devil in?
You see, these are our souls. We have to maintain them. The Bible tells us to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling. Oh the fear of God is such a good thing. It keeps us out of trouble.
Yes we can all use help, in cleaning, as if our own homes. I would love to have a maid, but since, I don’t I have to do it. In this photo, my husband and son stepped in, and helped a little. That was so nice, and I was so touched by their help, I took a photo of them. God bless them….
A good friend, may help you, counsel you, and even extend grace, when it comes to matters like this. To help you as well.
But it is our responsibility, to dust ourselves off, and maintain our relationship with Christ. Friend, don’t take your soul for granted, even if you have accepted Christ.
Yes, you were given a clean garment, a robe of white, when you made Christ your Lord, and savior. And He is so wonderful, He will give it to anyone, who calls on Him, and believes. But after that you better watch it, and know for you walk in this earth, and the enemies goal is to deceive you, and to cause you to stumble, and yes fall.
And if you have not friend, accepted Christ I implore you to seek Christ. Make it right with Him. This is not about religion, this is about knowing the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Make it right with Christ. This is your soul, and someday, when you die, you do not want to have known you had the chance even by reading this, and not making it right with Christ. Turn to Him, seek Him, repent, and make Him your Lord and savior. You will never regret it. I am so glad, He found me, but I made Him my Lord and savior.
I am a firm believer in repenting, daily, I suppose its like my daily dusting. But I do it because I so want to please father, and like I said, I just know when something is off, and when I do this, my joy, my sense of peace returns. God knows, when our spiritual houses are clean, and I want Him to see it clean, and acceptable for His presence.
Blessings, and love, Just my thoughts. Elena Ramirez
My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken Thou me according to Thy word. I have declared my ways, and Thou heardest me: teach me Thy statutes. Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works. My soul melteth for heavings: strengthen Thou me according unto Thy word. Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me Thy law graciously. I have chosen the way of truth; thy judgments have I laid before me. I have stuck unto Thy testimonies: O Lord put me not to shame. I will run the way of thy commandments when Thou shalt enlarge my heart. Psalm 119:25-32
I love the King James scriptures, and I try to tell you in love, how important it is to use a King James, but there is no way any other version, can speak this truth like this, the way God intended it to be, and the anointing of this scripture speaks volumes. In fact, this entire chapter, talks about the word, and His law, and His testimonies. I recommend reading all of Psalms 119 from a King James Bible…it is long, but it so ministers to my heart when I read it concerning Gods word. Dust off your bible, and read it. Why would anyone want less? And to deny yourself Gods food for thought, is starving yourself. Another thing perhaps, to write about another day…..
Just another Thought…..

As I wrote in this last post, about judging a matter, there are times when you are especially pressed, to seek God for wisdom, in a matter. He does tell us, if we seek Him, and ask for wisdom He will give it to us liberally.
IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY AND UPBRAIDETH NOT; AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM. JAMES 1:5.
But I want to talk about being careful, not to give Him lip service, or to forget about who He is, or His ways. I am at this point in my life, in my walk with Christ, and with just an understanding of who I am, that I can blow it. In other words, in my own ways, in my own thinking, I can make a mistake, I can miscalculate, I can make errors, that can affect an outcome.
When I say this, it is because its not that I don’t always trust my ability, but I trust Gods ability more. I can make some decisions, because I know truth, I can have a clear sense of discernment, because of who He is in me, and what His word says, and yes, one does know, like I said in my last post, that one can know right and wrong.
But, to be honest, I have learned in wisdom, that I should pray about everything, even as I start my day, so I can have His guidance.
But I guess, because right now I am pressed with a decision in my own life, where I need wisdom, I want to seek God. I don’t want Him to just give me what I want, but I want what He wants.
Because if I seek Him, it will be the best answer possible. It will be blessed. Friends, again, because so many of us, seek counsel, or wisdom from other ministries etc. We sometimes trust them to give wisdom, or guidance, and when they don’t know what God says, according to His word, a holy word, a good King James Bible word, they can mislead people. And you all know me by now, that I do not advocate any other Bible but this. For the many reasons, the wording can be corrupted by changing, adding, or deleting word. And scripture warns us not to do that.
But, I want to be honest, and humble in the sight of God. I myself, give advice, but I pray, I never get so “puffed” up or arrogant that I think so highly that I would mislead you. We are human, we make mistakes, and when we do, we should be humble enough to admit a fault.
This is why, even in the context of this message, I am saying Lord, I know you are the answer. Not me, not my desire, but you. So I release this to you Father, your will be done. Guide me, give me direction, but let me not make a mistake because I am so puffed up with myself. I can make mistakes but you never do. Lord I ask this in Jesus name, so I can give you glory, so I can say, Look what the Lord has done for me. But its all about you, dear Lord. And I do ask for an answer because I know the difference now. I have had leanness in my soul. Oh Lord, and just your fellowship in all matters, your presence, your beauty, so inspires my soul. I need you Lord. Help me.
You know folks, I guess, with wisdom one can see, with clarity, He is the way, the truth, and life. And I don’t want anything else to interfere. I am tired to be honest, of the mistakes I have made. I have made so many. But I don’t want to look back. I want to press toward the prize.
But to be lean in my soul, would happen and is because I gave Him lip service. I did not thank Him. I did not take into account His words or His commandments, his Ways.Oh that hurts me to know, I would offend God. Leanness is because one uses God, as like an Atm. And that is so insulting to Him. No wonder, many are misguided. But I want His wisdom, to please Him.
THEN BELIEVED THEY HIS WORDS, THEY SANG HIS PRAISE. THEY SOON FORGAT HIS WORKS; THEY WAITED NOT FOR HIS COUNSEL: BUT LUSTED EXCEEDINGLY IN THE WILDERNESS, AND TEMPTED GOD IN THE DESERT. AND HE GAVE THEM THEIR REQUEST; BUT SENT LEANNESS UNTO THEIR SOUL. Psalms 106:12-15.
He sent leanness, friends, have you ever just given a kid something to shut them up? Well thats wrong. They need to understand we all need to understand, some things are not good for us, and there is a reason. And He knows what the total outcome will be in any situation. Do you see why, this message is so important?
No, I don’t want to make mistakes that could just be avoided, if I seek Him. If I pray, if I live a life worthy of the calling of His sacrifice on that cross. If I don’t try to pull the wool over His eyes, because He is not fooled, He is not mocked. No, I want His will, in my life. Starting over, every day, one learns, if we only seek Him. If we are obedient to His truths, and implement them in our lives, no matter what others think. This is the best thing for me, and I don’t live for people, I live for God.
I pray, my post today inspires you. To know Him. What a mighty God I serve, I thank Him, I praise Him, and yes, I want to obey Him, because I love Him, not to make myself happy, but because of who He is.
He is God almighty. And that makes me happy, if I make Him happy first. Comprende?
Love ya all, just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez
