BE STILL .....

GOD BLESS YOU, BELOVED!!! THIS IS THE DAY THAT THE LORD HAS MADE! REJOICE & BE GLAD IN IT!!! I am so happy and privileged to be able to share with you once again. I have been quite busy, not in doing things, but in actively quieting my spirit so that I can clearly hear from God. You know, He instructs us to BE STILL & KNOW THAT HE IS GOD (Psalms 46:10), but sometimes, we think that the stillness He requires is a just for five or ten minutes, or for a few days, or concerning a particular situation; and it is true that God does requires stillness at all of those times - but there are times when GOD REQUIRES US TO BE STILL FOR A SEASON, AND WAIT ON HIS DIRECTIVE INSTRUCTIONS. I have been known to have the "ants-in-the-pants" ailment, where I cannot sit still and patiently wait my turn. I tend to respond out of turn, or give my opinion when nobody has asked for it. I had trouble keeping my cool, and my thoughts seemed to run all over the place. I have been known to have a big mouth, and I have often had such difficulty with refraining from "sharing" with others everything God was revealing to my spirit. But over the past few months, God has been teaching me HOW TO DISCIPLINE MYSELF. Oh, yeah - WE DO HAVE THE POWER TO DISCIPLINE OURSELVES WHEN WE ARE TOTALLY SUBMITTED TO GOD. He gives us that power through the Holy Spirit. He teaches us THROUGH HIS WORD how to crucify our flesh and submit  our wills to God.  He teaches us to CAST  OUR CARES UPON HIM, BECAUSE HE CARES FOR US (1st Peter 5:7). He teaches us to WALK IN THE SPIRIT SO WE WILL NOT WALK IN THE FLESH (Galatians 5:16). He teaches us to THINK ABOUT WHAT WE THINK ABOUT BY SUBMITTING OUR THOUGHTS UNTO CHRIST, & LETTING HIS MIND BE IN US (Romans 12:2; Philippians 2:5). HE TEACHES, BUT WE DO NOT ALWAYS OBEY. God has been teaching me for years through His Word how to WAIT UPON HIM, so HE COULD STRENGTHEN MY HEART (Psalms 27:14), but I kept looking to people for the answers that ONLY HE can provide. I kept relying on the opinion of people who had my best interest at heart, but are unable to accomplish the tasks that God placed in my hands. I have had to be secluded from everyone and everything that I held dear to me just so I can CLEARLY HEAR GOD'S DIRECTIVE INSTRUCTIONS.  I had to learn that MY EXPECTATION SHOULD ONLY BE FROM HIM (Psalms 62:5). I AM STILL LISTENING AS HE SPEAKS. I am learning to shut my big mouth and wait on His timing to reveal His plans. I am learning to TRUST IN THE LORD WITH MY WHOLE HEART & LEAN NOT ON MY OWN UNDERSTANDING. I am learning to ACKNOWLEDGE HIM IN ALL MY WAYS & LET HIM DIRECT MY PATH (Proverbs 3:5-6). We readily QUOTE these scriptures, BUT TO ACTUALLY LIVE THEM OUT REQUIRES COMPLETE SUBMISSION TO THE WILL OF GOD. As I am daily submitting my life to His Will, I daily find more things about me that He requires that I submit to Him. My ways, my thoughts, my ideas, my opinions, my feelings---NONE OF THAT HAS ANYTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH THE WILL OF GOD FOR MY LIFE. Once we fully embrace this fact, life would go much more smoothly. GOD HAS OVER AND OVER AGAIN PROVEN HIMSELF TO BE FAITHFUL! HE PERFORMS HIS WORD! HE GIVES PEACE IN THE VALLEY & HE IS SHELTER IN TIME OF A STORM! As we CELEBRATE PASSION WEEK, we are COMMEMORATING CHRIST'S DEATH, BURIAL, & RESURRECTION! This is a SPECIAL TIME & SEASON for me! Although there are debates about whether or not this is the proper time of the year to commemorate Passion Week, since our Julian calendar is set to celebrate at this time of year,  I GIVE GOD DOUBLE HONOR FOR THE SACRIFICE OF HIS SON AS THE PROPITIATION FOR MY SIN! I GIVE GOD ALL THE HONOR AND GLORY DUE UNTO HIM FOR ALLOWING HIS SON TO DIE FOR THE REMISSION OF MY SIN! I HONOR HIM BY LIVING MY LIFE DAILY AS A LIVING SACRIFICE HOLY AND ACCEPTABLE UNTO HIM! HE KEEPS PROVIDING FOR ME IN WAYS THAT I CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND SOMETIMES!!! HE IS FAITHFUL!!!!! HAPPY RESURRECTION, BELOVED!!!!!

In times of trouble, we as humans can't help ourselves but to feel like no one is there to help us or care for us. I personally have had this kind of feelings before and I swear, the feeling is not good at all. In these situations, some people tend to think that the Lord has also forsaken them. But as time goes by and as I have known the Lord deeper and deeper, I have realized that whatever your situation is, whether it is good or bad, the Lord is always there for us and this is something that we should always be thankful for.

God is so kind to us it is just us to realize that how lucky we are that we are blessed. I will also look for more. For this time, though, I hope you can use some of this information I am including now.
