Good Morning All,
The word of the lord says. He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they were quiet, So He guided them to their desired haven. Psalms 107:29-30
They say the calm is before the storm. The Cambridge Dictionary defines. ” A quiet or peaceful period before a period during which there is great activity, argument, or difficulty. When we realized who causes and/or allows the storms we can find peace from within and trust that God does everything according to his perfect plan and for our divine purpose.
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a Christian life according to Paul in his Letter to the Galatians: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Many are experiencing mixed emotions in these days concerning Christ stand on today’s issues. Why has there been no relief from God they say, or where is your God they ask? Many have fallen away from the faith and even stopped teaching their children the faith walk. The Bible prepared us prophetically for the end times.
End times lining up with Luke 21 showing wars and famine, families riding against one another, but if we do not read daily and teach our kids the word and prayer as they rise and set daily what responsibility will we have played in this worlds end time?
Deut. 6 is a perfect example of realigning the family to begin a course of taken things back that we gave they enemy.
The fruit of the spirit is what we’re striving for character wise. If we continue looking at Christ rather than crisis we will make the strives Christ in each of us desires, but if we claim all the hurt and pain we see and have experienced as worldly individuals we will forever find ourselves missing the important lessons in life that are called to remind us of our Divine Kinship. The lessons that soften the heart allowing seeds of transformation to enter in for the harvest to come into our lives. Go back to the beginning when our grand parents imparted life through the word of God in us. Live by the word of God totally, and lean not to your own understanding because deception is a trap from the enemy. Work with the fruit of the spirit and lessen the interference !
Amen.. Look to the hills not to the world and it’s distractions.
After all the running and daily activities we’ve done through this week no need to allow those things to attach themselves to us.If it was pain from disappointment, sickness or shame. If you hurt someone or someone hurt you the cross is there to let it go. Letting go allows us to run on a little while longer, because we’ve let go of the weighty matters of life.
Read Hebrews 12 1-3
12 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Blessing and refreshing for the week has ended. You made it to the weekend!
Jesus is above all things, look up!
