Ride on King Jesus!! NO MAN CANNOT HINDER ME!

Praise the Lord from whom ALL blessings flow! I just wanted to share a song with you that I have not heard in a mighty long time! It came to my heart out of nowhere but praise be to God….. it got me on my feet as I exclaimed that NO MAN cannot hinder me. NO MAN cannot hinder you! The Bible tells us in Romans 8:31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”[c]

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

That passage of scripture is deep on my heart. Dear Reader, rise up this day and claim victory in your circumstances no matter what the natural eye sees and the ear hears. God loves us! God has the final say over your life. He is your Judge, He is your Creator. You are who He says you are! The enemy comes to attack in subtle ways like a little lamb and in voracious ones like a lion. There is no light in him. He is the prince of darkness from the pit of hell. Be it through people or circumstances, your boat may get rocked or it may even turn over. Stand your ground, put on the WHOLE Armor of God and go out with authority in the victorious name of Jesus Christ!! Do you hear me?!! God woke you up to be encouraged in Him, not to be defeated!

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— (Ephesians 6: 10-18)

I’m gonna praise the Lord with you! I don’t know what you are going through but I know who does better than anyone else. JESUS!!!!!!

RIDE ON KING JESUS!! HALLELUJAH! GLORY BE TO GOD!!

Be encouraged this day. Take your heart to the throne and place your burdens at His feet. The Lord will raise you up and strengthen you.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

Weeping & Rejoicing

20130316-160425.jpg
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. (Romans 12:15 NKJV)

As I sit outdoors listening to the windchime clank back and forth melodically in tune with the warm winds, I find my thoughts passing through the skies with some somber feelings and those of rejoicing.

My sister in The Lord lost her mother recently. I cried and my heart still mourns yet I find comfort and rejoice with her because her mother has gone home to be with our Lord.

Thinking back over the last few weeks as well as the months, she and I have had conversations of laughter and those deep in prayer over various matters.

She is my sister. In Christ we share His blood.

One of the most profound conversations we have had is that of having a kindred spirit. Through one of my dark times I told her that she was like a sister (blood related, earthly type DNA kind of stuff) to me and that I truly appreciated her. You know what she told me?!! She said “Terra, I AM your sister!” While it may not seem like it grabs and clenches the heart to you, it spoke volumes to me and it still does!

Though we have never met in person (yet) we have built this relationship that seems as if it was meant to be and we carry on like we’ve known each other for years! As much as I talk about her to my kids and my husband I think they pretty much know everything I know about her.

My other brothers and sisters in The Lord that I have grown close to have impacted my life as well as I of theirs. My heart is blessed when I am thought of and their lives are shared with me. The in and out, the good and bad are taken up and treasured for in these times, prayers are lifted up over many things that we each face. We weep together and we rejoice together. I find comfort in this.

Kindred spirits…. kindred bloodline. These are the treasures I have through Christ in the multitude of brothers and sisters I have become close to over passing time. I look forward to joining together with many I have yet to meet and bond with.

Who would ever think that such treasure could be found in the “blogdom”. Surely not I a few years ago. I am a believer who’s “cup has runneth over”.

The Blood of Christ Jesus surpasses any earthly blood ties and connections that a DNA test could ever compile. With that said, I am completely satisfied.

Though this life is temporary and shall pass away, I trust and believe that Father God will provide for the motherless, fatherless, those without siblings and those simply in need of love and fellowship with those that they can connect with.

Miles away, distant lands and even language barriers may separate us but it is the bloodline of Christ that unites us forever.

Whether you are weeping or rejoicing I am with you doing the same. I am thankful for the overflow of love that’s been poured out and for that which is received.

If we never meet face to face in this life, I look forward to seeing you in glory!
