SEX, FAMILY, AND LIES

People prepare for weddings, funerals, the arrival of a new baby, college, events, vacation, interviews for a new position, etc., but nobody prepares for cancer. It hits the newborn baby, the toddler, the child, teenager, your sibling, your best friend, adults and elderly. Then, all of a sudden, every moment becomes precious in life. Life is cut short—and people are left with the pain and heartache from that last wrong word, the loss of a loved one, and the emptiness that is left behind long after the funeral. Some are left with fond memories they have built together and peace if they know the person is in Heaven with God through salvation. 

Grief is a process—and we must walk through it with God and loved ones. The worst thing any of us can do is to isolate ourselves. That’s where the enemy has a field day with the mind…and will attack in all kinds of ways. It is imperative to renew the mind in God’s Word and pray in order to recognize the lies of the enemy. 

People prepare in great detail for the wedding day—so that every single thing is handled. From properly addressed invitations, to rehearsal dinners, flowers, venue arrangements, to cakes and dresses, “Thank You” notes, etc., —but nobody prepares for affairs, adultery, separation and divorce that destroys whole families. 

People plan to build a family. While some couples can’t have children—they choose to adopt. People don’t plan to destroy their own family. I don’t believe for one moment that anyone in their right mind prepares to bring about destruction on purpose.

Sex was created by God for man. He created us to be fruitful and to multiply. God loves family. 

Satan twists, thwarts, and threatens all mankind with his lies because he knows his time is short. He cannot create—so he imitates and thwarts to bring about death, despair, discord, disease, division, and destruction—through wrong soul ties. He is the author of confusion! 

We live in a time where there is a war on the Truth. Truth always outweighs fact. In the end, Truth—the Word of God—will stand. Lies, deception, wars of words, and corruption in media is at an all-time high BUT GOD’S WORD STANDS FOREVER. He reveals all hidden truth. The Bible says, “The Holy Spirit reveals all hidden truth and shows us things to come.” God said it—that settles it! 

People have hopes and dreams and plans. God is good. He does good and wants to do good. He is a good Father. He gave us His Son Jesus and His Word to guide us through this life, and to prepare us here on earth for eternity. God has a good plan for your life (Jeremiah 29:11). He says, “You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). The Lord wants us, His creation, to seek Him. He is not hiding out—but we only treasure what we seek. Treasure your destiny enough to step out of drama (devil racing after my assignment). Treasure family and friends. Life is not promised for tomorrow. You only get one life here—so live it pleasing God and glorifying Him by your actions! 

Family doesn’t simply matter—it is all that matters. There is one family you must make sure you are in before it’s too late—that’s the FAMILY OF GOD. If you are breathing, it is not too late to call upon the Name of JESUS! Jesus is interceding for us that our faith will not fail. While He is interceding for us, we are given the gift of prayer and power in prayer. 

Use your God-given authority today to decree and declare God’s Word—His Promises—over your life. Speak life over your family, friends, and bless your enemies. For if they knew the gift of God, if they knew they were blinded by sin, if they knew that all that matters is family and eternity, they would turn from their sin and repent. May I ask you this question: Have you prepared for eternity? Choose to walk in the light! 

Pray with me that the eyes of all lost and hurting family, friends, and enemies would be opened and hearts healed NOW IN JESUS’ NAME—let there be light. May the eyes of their understanding be enlightened. Let today be the day of salvation. In Jesus’ Name. Amen. Now, take time to praise HIM! 

Love, 

Deborah

REJECTED NO MORE..”He has made us accepted in the Beloved”

Written by Deborah. Posted in #TellTheWorld, #TellTheWorldAboutJesus, A LEAP OF FAITH (25 Days At The Mercy Seat), Abuse, Anger, Anxiety, Desire of your heart, DIVINE DESTINY, DRAMA TO DESTINY, Encouragement, FAITH, Family, FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS, FEAR, FOLLOWING JESUS, God, God's Priceless Treasure, Loneliness, Loss of a loved one, Love people, Marriage, Overcoming Rejection, PAIN TO PURPOSE, PEACE IN TOUGH TIMES, Personal Confessions, Prayer, Purpose, Relationships, Seek God, Separation in marriage, STEP INTO PURPOSE, The Midnight Hour (Will America Turn Back To God?), TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH, Uncategorized, Wisdom, Worry, Worship

Are you feeling rejected, your emotions going off the charts, assuming, and maybe even panicked over some situation in your life? Does your heart feel broken? Or, do you know someone who has a broken heart? When we put our problems in God’s hands, He put His peace in our hearts. 

God has made a way to heal every place that hurts. He has made a way to heal your wounds of rejection and bring you into acceptance with Him. The steps to being healed from rejection are simple, but not always easy in life. You can succeed as you partner with the Holy Spirit of God. 

The Bible says: He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5 NKJV).

Many have walked in and out of toxic and abusive relationships….from marriage to even business. Almost every person has experienced some form of rejection at one time or another. Your date didn’t show up, you were snubbed by a friend, you didn’t make it on the team or the school play, you were not accepted at the college of your choice, you didn’t get the position you thought you should have gotten, to a spouse walking out for another person and the pain of divorce. Rejection can be simply put as the sense of being unwanted and unloved. Rejection can leave a person feeling empty….and trying to fill a void that only God can fill. 

Closely related to rejection are the wounds of shame and betrayal. A leader or friend gossips and shares a confidence saying it’s called prayer to trying to harm you on purpose. Society is suffering from a progressive breakdown of interpersonal relationships, lack of respect and showing honor.  

Because God wants to use you as a world changer, the devil tries to emotionally cripple every person at a young age so they do not step into their God-given destiny. Rejection can be paralyzing if we don’t have spiritual eyesight. When our focus is on the world and not on God, we start to live in darkness. Satan will set you up to be upset…and use the very people you least expect. 

Satan is afraid of what you can become in Jesus Christ. So listen up…the people who have walked through hell on earth and been the lowest often end up the highest in God. The Scriptures tell us, “He who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 18:14). God wants to use you to advance His Kingdom. Run to God and receive healing…and reach out a helping hand to others who are walking in pain. Both our ability and inclination to love God and other people spring from the grasp and understanding of His great love for us. Ask God to give you a heart like His….to see what He sees, feel what He feels….and a desire to be an extension of His heart to all you meet. 

God equips us and empowers us to comfort those where we have been comforted. If you truly knew the gift of God—His great love for you—you would be enthralled by Him. 

There is a beautiful verse in the Bible that describes the amazing love of Jesus Christ for people….for you reading this now:

“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them…” (Matthew 9:36a NKJV).

The Greek word translated “compassion” implies a forceful, physical reaction in a person’s body in the abdominal area. It is a reaction so strong that it demands a response. A person who is moved by compassion has to do something. A person who is “moved with compassion” cannot sit on the sidelines and only observe. They are constrained by the love of God and moved by compassion to do something. Why was Jesus so moved? 

“….because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd” (Matthew 9:36b NKJV). 

If this is how you feel…..stressed, angry, fearful, anxious, burdened down, weary, harried, confused, and perplexed….Jesus sees you….just as He saw the multitudes. Jesus has compassion for you and He is longing to heal every place that hurts. 

One of the most common roots of all personal problems is rejection. A marriage fails and one or both spouses experience rejection. Children are left feeling the wounds of abandonment. I remember clearly walking with my daddy and can still feel my hand in his as we walked when I was a child up the mountain. Just a few years ago, I remember laying my head on his chest on a few occasions as we stayed with him for the last 17 days of his precious life…with his hand on mine and my sister’s heads. We just wanted to cherish every minute with our father. 

We were surrounded by family, friends, and people that God used to encourage us. Our wonderful God-fearing mother never left our father’s side…she is a gift from God. Family is a gift from God! Cherish the people in your life. 

There is no greater feeling of security than that of a father…being in his arms…and climbing up in his lap with your head resting on his strong chest….it feels secure. God designed every person to crave this kind of security. A child can never truly be fulfilled, satisfied, or secure without parental love—especially love from a father. God is our perfect Heavenly Father….

The picture of broken families and rejection is rampant. Children grow up to be adult children with wounds of rejection. Sometimes there is the added pain of betrayed trust…and always great heartache. 

With the insurmountable pressures of life and the added pressures of breakup, most people have experienced some form of rejection. God sees everything and He foresaw this end-time crisis of broken relationships when He gave this promise in Scripture in the book of Malachi:

“See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. 

He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse” (Malachi 4:5-6). 

For those who will turn to God through Jesus, there is healing. 

“He has made us accepted in the Beloved” (Ephesians 1:6 NKJV)—Jesus.

NEVER DOUBT GOD’S LOVE

Written by Deborah. Posted in #GodAlwaysWins, #TellTheWorld, #TellTheWorldAboutJesus, Anger, Believe, Betrayal - Judas Kiss, Destiny, DRAMA TO DESTINY, Encouragement, God, God's Love, Love, PAIN TO PURPOSE, Prayer, Repentance, Resurrection Power, Seek God, STEP INTO PURPOSE, The Midnight Hour (Will America Turn Back To God?), TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH, Trust God, Waiting, weeping, Wisdom, Worry, Worship

Never doubt God’s love. There is something quite beautiful and amazing about God’s capacity to cause all things to work for good–because of Jesus.

“How blessed is the man whose strength is in THEE: in whose heart are the highways to Zion! Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring” –Psalm 84:5-6.

Baca means “weeping.”  Most people have had times of weeping when hearts and hopes feel crushed in this life through some crisis, hardship, betrayal, or devastation. 

Do not ever doubt God’s love. Remember, He answers prayer in ways we might not think. He always does it in ways so we know it’s HIM. He goes to extreme measures to make Himself known. 

Because God has placed in our hearts “highways to Zion,” when we pass through valleys; we do not live in them. We pass through with Jesus. Once we are on the other side of weeping (having experienced extreme heartbreak, betrayal, and hurts) our Redeemer makes our valley experience into “a spring.” The very thing that overwhelmed us, no matter if it was for a season or even years, in time, will refresh us because we know that God was with us through it all. We look back and see His Hand behind the scenes of the past, and know He is with us in the present and whatever the future may hold. We are able to share of His goodness because we have a new testimony. 

Has someone hurt your deeply? Has the enemy isolated you and caused you to doubt God’s love? Never forget—even the hairs on your head are numbered. God cares deeply. It is His great love for us that redeems our hardships. He brings good out of what was meant for evil—remember the story of Joseph in God’s Word. He was betrayed by his brothers and they left him to die. He was unjustly accused by Potiphar’s wife, imprisoned and forgotten by all EXCEPT GOD. God watched Joseph’s reaction to difficulty and was with him through it all. Rich or poor, blessed or persecuted, Joseph served God. Joseph was on trial before men—but was found innocent by God. God used everything Joseph went through to shape him for His purpose. 

God uses our redeemed hardships to train us to deliver other people. Jesus was a man of sorrows. He was One who was acquainted with grief. Yet in all of what He walked through on earth, His suffering was the Father’s means of acquainting Him with the feelings of mankind’s pain and need. What have you walked through that someone else needs to hear to make it through? 

Do not forget, while we were yet sinners, Jesus Christ died for us. If we will choose to submit and surrender to God’s plan to be formed in us, God will take the sorrowful things we have walked through to enlarge our hearts and fill us with overflowing compassion. Only when we have been acquainted with grief, can we be anointed with true compassion from above to deliver others. 

As we were driving to a luncheon this week, we passed by a shopping center and saw what appeared to be some sort of equipment that made me think of Haman’s gallows in the Book of Esther. The Lord spoke to my heart and reminded me that the plots and traps people set for others, they will be caught in them instead. 

The Bible says: “So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath was pacified” (Esther 7:10). Like Esther, we can now come before the King of kings and tell him exactly how we feel, what is on our heart, and what is troubling us—the evil plotted against God’s people that the Holy Spirit has revealed. 

After seeing the hanging pole (or gallows), I chose to turn around and take a picture. It took all of two minutes. I circled through the parking lot, stopped and took the picture, and proceeded out again to the light at the intersection. Interestingly enough, the jeep in front of us had a wheel cover with the word problem upside down, and just over it in white were the words NO PROBLEM.  I knew God was making Himself known to us, and letting us know the obvious. Problems are NO PROBLEM for God. Amen. I know that someone is shouting high praises to Heaven now after reading this as well. 

Then the car in front of us at the next light had a sticker in the window with a circle on it. Inside the circle were two hearts and a CROSS. God wants us to be alert to Him to see what He is revealing. We can see manifestations in the natural of what is happening in the spirit realm—if we are alert and in-tune to God. Because God is Love, He is a communicator. In fact, God is always communicating with us. Being sensitive to the Holy Spirit is an important part of successfully navigating life. 

Be assured, God knows the number of hairs on every head, and HE knows exactly what you or someone you love is walking through right now. He will avenge you and make every crooked place straight. He is long-suffering and waits to give people time to repent. But God doesn’t wait forever. Time is short—eternity is forever—heaven and hell are real. We must choose: LIFE or DEATH.

God has not promised to keep us from valleys of pain and sufferings, but He has promised to make us fruitful in them. As we remain faithful to God in the trials of life, the likeness of Jesus Christ shall emerge in our spirits—thus Christ revealed to those around us. Other people will see the light in us as we stand strong and shine with the glory of God. 

God’s love and mine,

Deborah
