Have Faith God Is With You

He is constant in our lives!

Building trust and confidence in God first requires me to know Him on a personal level. I have to get to know Him at His word, get to know His voice, get to know His faithfulness, love, grace, and mercy toward me and others.

That has been a journey that I am still very much on. But, I am making strides to be along that path better. My human nature and how I am build with my temperments tend to rely on logic and then emotion engages and it can either be good or bad depending on whether my logic is from my carnal mind or from direct revelation from God.

To be carnally minded is death as to why it can lead to bad. Now if it is based off of true revelation from God then it can be good. But I have to capture those things and find out which is which.

So, the more I inplant in my soul (mind,will and emotions) the truth from the word of God, the more growth I can have in faith and being confident in God and taking Him at His word.

The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Deuteronomy 31:8 NASB

God went ahead of us in this day and age as we live post crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus to prepare us the way to have that close relationship with Him. He then sent the comforter in the Holy Spirit to be with us and show His faithfulness to us.

So when fear tries to come and grip me I have to pull from the spirit of God for His word told me He didn’t give me a spirit of fear, but one of power, love and a sound mind. Believe me more often then not fear in some form tries to grip and paralyze me. It comes in depression, worry, anxiety, stress, out right fear of something.

It has been in the teaching I am getting at Reformation Developmental Center that is Pastored by Juanita Gibbs that has helped me begin to have an awareness of those things so I can combat them and trust that God is with me.

This has been a journey and a process to lean of God and not my understanding and trust what He is doing in my life. To bring about maturity and completeness in Him.

By Faith

It was by faith…

For so long the enemy and the contents of my soul allowed whispers of deception to permeate my faith and dilute it to almost nothing of effect.

I would hear whispers that my prayers were not heard. Who are you to be praying for such things. Your not who you think you are just sit down and accept what you have now as nothing will change for you.

It took time and is taking time for me to find my place in God. I am a Woman of God. I was predestined to be a child of God. I am a woman of worth that carries value and can bring blessings into the lives of those that God chooses to place around me. I am an encourager. I am going to be an author. I am a blogger. I am a daughter!

This has taken me years to get to and I am now taking root in those things to become steadfast in my position in the Lord. I want to be effectual in the faith and help woman become secure in who they are. But, I must be the first partaker in the endeavor, for how can I help another if I myself have not walked through the struggle.

It is also in time that my book will come about, to share more of my story and show why its been a journey to become what God wants me to be secure in.

I am thankful for the ministry that I am in with Pastor Juanita Gibbs that she has endeavored to go along with me on this journey to overcome insecurity and pray me through to establish me in who I am in God. She has been able to relate to me in the entire journey and still that I have been on and that I am on.

By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days.
Hebrews 11:30 NASB

It is by her praying for me and me delving into that personal relationship with God that has by faith been taking down the walls in my soul to be set free and allow his love to infiltrate my being, bringing healing and deliverance in stages, phases and degrees.

She told me once long ago that His banner over me is love and when the enemy of my soul now tries his old tricks I pull out the love that He has begun to fill me with and recount His goodness, to remain thankful and not allow my logic or emotions run away from me.

Am I perfect in it? No!

Pastor told me it is also a process of learning, failing and trying again that will help me to continue to learn and grow as the journey goes on through out life.

By faith the walls will come down! I must keep marching in faith and full assurance God is with me and will not fail me and to teach me patience that in time my faith will produce a harvest but in the gap faith produces character in me.
