Test Run

THIS IS A TEST RUN AND MAYBE REMOVED. IF YOU SEE ANY AREAS OF NEED PLEASE MESSAGE ME.

I have never had the intention to writing a blog, but often I email our church a small portion of what God has revealed to me during my devotion or personal worship time. I am attempting to place it here for their benefit and welcome you to use it for the Glory of God.

I have no idea where this quote came from, but I have it in my weekly notes so that I see it often.

"If you are not coming so you can take the message to others, then you are coming so you can have the message to yourself.  Soon you will find that this knowledge will further distance you from the very people who need it, but since you now know how sinful they are, you refuse to get close enough to them to share the only message that will save them."

Combine that with my reading this morning:

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

2 Corinthians 10:8 For even if I boast a little too much of our authority, which the Lord gave for building you up and not for destroying you, I will not be ashamed.

God has given us His Gospel so that the sinful strongholds in people's lives can be destroyed and we can be built up for His Kingdom. God does not wish to destroy us. Satan wishes to destroy, not God. 

But what if like me, you are the one who needs the stronghold destroyed? What if you feel torn down today?

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Today, take a moment and stop trying to Love God more and just let God Love on you. Let His Love cast out your fear. Let His Love destroy your stronghold. It's never been about how much we love God. Our love is in response to HOW MUCH GOD LOVES US!

April, feel free to use to it. One of my hopes is that it will encourage others to daily be in the Word and/or to assist those that are already doing that.

I love this. It's good to look at this and share it with my normal bible study and verse writing daily. Do you mind if I use it in that way?
