I title this post this way, to make the point. That I know, that I know, I am a faith helper, to help you, and others in their faith in God. But I want to make it clear from the beginning. Its not about me. Its about God. Its not about fame, or prosperity or even being acknowledged. Which can easily begin pride.
You can know something, but you don’t have to have pride, when you do. Many times, people will have gifts and callings, and they forget it is a gift from God, and they think its all about them. They think they are, then superior. They think, that the ability they possess, is the reason for their success. Or that separates themselves from other, and makes them better. Wrong. Why? Because first of all God is not a respecter of persons.
FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD. ROMANS 2:11
Well, I want you to know and more then anything else in fear of God, I tell you… God wants to get glory in it.
I AM THE LORD: THAT IS MY NAME: AND MY GLORY WILL I NOT GIVE TO ANOTHER, NEITHER MY PRAISE TO GRAVEN IMAGES. Isaiah 42:8
And, anything, I do to help you in your faith. Because again, God has gifted me, for His glory, is to show you His ways. So He can be glorified. And truly He does deserve glory, for all of the wondrous things He can do. And does. For His creation, for His power, for His healing abilities, and so much more. For He gives life, and He can take it away. His ways, are not like our ways.
FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS, MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD. Isaiah 55:8.
So, how do we begin, to get Gods thoughts? How do we begin to get His ways? I believe with all my heart, it begins with the bible we use. You see, the King James is old, and has been preserved. For over 400 years. God knew. Just this century men, and publishers began playing with the Holy word, and changed it. They disregarded the warnings. But we can see the warnings from the King James. To get Gods thoughts. To get His ways. And I think if we begin to see that, we can begin to have faith.
We live in a world, where faith, is not always encouraged. If it was, everyone would be talking about who God is. They would acknowledge Him. They would not deny Him.
Just recently, I saw a motivational speaker, talking, about the abilities people have to get success, or to make a difference in this world. And this person, did have a sense about him to inspire. To motivate, with good ideas. But there was one thing missing. And that was the foundation of knowing God. And bringing God into the conversation. Without that foundation of God, we have nothing to stand on.
You see, without God, we are missing the point. We are missing, the truth in why we are created. Our thoughts, become empty, humanistic, without, seeing our whole being, really does depend on who God is, and who He is in our life. We become self absorbed, but that can be cold. That can be empty, without the spark that God can give, and because of who He is. I wrote more about that in my page above, entitled “Conversations.” Where I was discussing it with someone.
Anyway, we all need help. There are times, we have to come to the bottom of the barrel, if we do not make God a priority. Life is not easy. And when there is an enemy, who Christ warned us about, who comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Without God in ones life, we can fall. We can be our own worst enemy, because we have not make Christ, the way, the truth, and the life.
But there are things we have to begin to do. We have to develop our faith. This is why I wrote my book. “HOW TO HAVE FAITH” By Elena Ramirez. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com
There are things, I have learned, by trial and error, as well with success, how to develop my own faith. But you have to try.
If you deny God, you deny the only true chance, to be the best you can be. With or without gifts and callings, if God is not the foundation of your life, your life, will truly not meet its potential.
Once you stop denying God, and start searching for Him, you are then on the road, to make Christ the way, the truth, and the life. You also though, have to have good doctrine. And this is so very, very vital, to finding out who God is, but also hearing His voice clearly. To have the mind of Christ.
I say this, again, and again, because there are many bible versions out there but they have been corrupted, by the revisions, and changes. The voice that comes from the King James bible, is the voice that is spoken by the Holy spirit. But if you make changes to that, you will not hear Gods voice, but the voice of some publisher, or dude, or dudette, who changed it. And that voice from its origin, is not the voice of God, but the voice of the enemy, the devil. And this is where the deception is. I know along with this more then anything, you have to be careful, in which bible you choose.
Not only do I warn you. But you must know, according to scripture, we are warned, not to change, add, or delete it. The most strongest warning comes from Revelation 22:18-19 and this warns one could actually lose their salvation. Please see it.
I do recommend the King James.
So pray my friends, draw close to God, learn who God is. Seek Him. Seek to obey Him. Be thankful to God. This is also a very important key. We can overlook. Start appreciating and thanking God, for every little thing. Even if it is little. Little things grow. Look at it as seeds.
I do want to help your faith grow. I do want to help you. But you have your part. If you deny truth, if you deny true instruction. You will not get the results you long for.
You see, you have gifts, and callings yourself, that can bring glory to God. But if you do not get this right, even here to begin with, you will not meet your full potential. You will miss it.
You could miss it so much, you could lose your Salvation, because you were deceived. Heaven and Hell are real. But if you do not search for truth to find heaven, Gods way, you could be your own enemy, and make hell on earth your reality, and future after death as well.
This is very important to see. Because sometimes, we are given chances, but if we do not do what is right, we can set the plan for even eternity. You do not want to miss it.
So, I pray, you are inspired, to talk about God, search for God, and truly sense with Him, and in Him, you can meet your potential. Studying Gods word, your King James Bible, and hiding it in your heart, will produce the fruit that gives evidence to your own faith.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
