WHAT DO WE DO WHEN “TROUBLE” STRIKES?

“Trouble,” is defined in the dictionary as, (to disturb in mind; to distress; worry; to make trouble for someone, disturbance disorder unrest).  All these afflictions are to cause disadvantageous or a source of stress or anxiety or distress in difficulties.  (John 16:33 NKJV) tells us, “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”  What is tribulation, we may ask?  Well tribulation is identified again in the dictionary as being, (grievous trouble – causing grief or sorrow, severe trial or experience).

We have all gone through many trials and testing to see our character, but thank God we have remained fixed and stable on the promises of God in (Hebrews 13:5-6) “Let your conduct be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have.  For He himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  So we may boldly say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear.  What can man do to me?”  This is our position in all circumstances of trouble’s attacks to get us off the course to great expectations, into a downward spiral of hopelessness living, without cause or purpose.  We must never forget these kind words of comfort that can enhance us to continue in living as overcomers, with cheerful dispositions on everything, and in every occasion of our lives.  This transpires in our lives as a result of trouble trying to inhabit our every nature of conduct, to debilitate, and waste us away into nothingness.  But God has made a way possible for all trouble, and tribulation to be removed from our existence, and that of our family’s lives, which would effectively eradicate all traces of the effects trouble and tribulation brings.

This is what Jesus taught us to do, “Come to Me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from Me because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest.  For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load the Lord will put on you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 GNT).  How awesome is that! Easy is the word that pleases us all to hear, so let’s do it now, repent of all the trouble and tribulation has set upon our lives to make living burdensome, to be set free in Jesus’ name for His overcoming ways to take effect in our lives now and for always:

*”Dear Lord Jesus we repent of having trouble and tribulation over us demanding for our life to be grievously affected to disturb our peace, and get us off course of the things that would cheer us up.  We are truly sorry for harbouring trouble and tribulation as a carnal defensive mechanism to cheat us out of the joy of living in your way, your truth, and your way of life for us as you have already overcome every difficulty we can ever face in our lives through trouble and tribulation, by taking all our sins upon yourself on the cross at Calvary.  And redeeming us for the life you have chosen and overcome for us already.  So with your grace and your help Jesus we cast all our problems and burdens onto you, and ask that you now wash us with your precious blood Jesus, clean and white as snow, that we might now be filled with the Holy Spirit’s gifts of, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, according to (Galatians 5:22-23).  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, for God is, and God will provide, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots, Amen!”

THE FORLORNED BY THE LORD


“The forlorned meaning is: utterly lost, deserted, forsaken, wretched.
Jesus came that we might have life in its fullness, not deserted and abandoned by Him, but there is a price to pay for those who have forlorned the ways of the Lord.  God is love, and therefore there is no bad deed in Him, for He sent His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life, and that because of this love which conquered the sin of the world once and for all, we ought to love one another as He loved us first, and created us in His image, “LOVE” for (1 John 4:7-11 NKJV) identifies this love to us through Jesus, who was slain for our transgressions and became a living sacrifice to suffice the evil’s plots to be admonished for ever, through His shed blood at Calvary, “Beloved let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God.  He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.  In this the love of God was manifested towards us that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.  In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought to love one another.”
How then can we love one another?  By keeping ourselves from wrong doings such as lying, bearing false witness against one another, keeping ourselves from malicious gossip, and staying away from those who reject God’s ways of love, “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His Commandments.” (1 John 5:20-21 NKJV).  It is our affirmation of love when we keep the Commandments for, “If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he who does not love his brother (or sister) whom he has seen, how can he love whom he has not seen?  And the Commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.”
We have all said things that we shouldn’t, without recognising it as disobeying this Commandment of love, like when somebody has been so vile and abusive of us, the comment of, “I hate him, or her!”  In a moment of upset and rage, we presume curses upon ourselves, for God, for God said we must treat others as we would want them to treat us, so by saying the “hate” word, it’s actually inviting hate towards us, rather say, “I hate the evil in that person, not the person.”  The only way we can live love, is to have love for one another and leave those who abuse us and openly criticize us, and demean us publicly, to cast them onto the Lord in this one simple prayer of forgiveness for us, and for those who are the forlorned by the Lord through their hatred and evil doings towards us-
”Lord Jesus, I cannot but say sorry for all the times I have hated those who have betrayed me and publicly abused me and belittled me, so as you declared upon the cross at Calvary, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing.”  I am not the judge Jesus you are, for you never sinned on the earth during your life as a human, therefore I can cast all my problems and burdens on you by those who have rejected me because I am your follower, who misunderstand the purposes for loving one another and have jeered at me as being evil and not sound-minded.  I forgive them all, who have insulted me and made fun of me to others with malicious gossip and given their point of view about how I live as a Christian is wrong and idealistic.  I forgive them all and now Jesus I ask for your forgiveness of me, wash me with your precious blood, and teach me through the Holy Spirit to love others as you have commanded, and never use the hate word other than towards evil, and not the person, so that I may dwell in you and you in me, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, God is, and God will provide.”

SCARCITY

“As it is written in (Matthew 11:6 NKJV) God wants us to know Him, but also warns through Jesus, “And blessed is he who is not offended because of me.”  This then would mean scarcity of mind, will and emotions and knowledgeable acts of wisdom, to do the right thing always, and not when one feels like it.

God hates backsliders of faith in His beloved Son Jesus Christ, whom He sent as an offering of His love and compassion, for we were lost in our transgressions without hope, but Jesus came that we might know Him and the Father and the Holy Spirit as never before, and the Scriptures are His gift to us to set us the example for life’s unending parallel of hope, unified to Him the Lord God Almighty.

Many people are offended at Christianity, because to them life is what they make of it, but the scarcity of mind, will and emotions and knowledgeable acts of wisdom, only comes about when God is not present in their life.
We as Christians do not have this struggle of scarcity, for God supplies for our needs as He has quoted in (Psalm 127 NKJV) “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.  It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.  Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord.”  We must never be vain about the amount of children we have, for God has intended each and every one of them to bring happiness and joy into our lives as an inheritance of His love, to grow them and feed them on unconditional love, but scarcity will rob them of that if we belong to ourselves and not give out freely, for God gave freely of His Son and the love He shared through His Son out to all who came to Jesus knowing fully well they would receive love and healing freely, the only requirement was their faith alone in Jesus to do the necessary things for them to be free of their scarcity.
Scarcity means (not plentiful or abundant, wanting).  This would account for people never being satisfied, and always wanting more.  They struggle to make ends meet, yet their family is the one that suffers the most, because whilst they are out trying to make their way financially, they are missing the most important fact of life – Jesus is and always will be our provider if we let Him.  This means not losing time spent with our loved ones, but relying on God to supply from the scarcity – gain and His favour of abundance, for He tells us through Jesus, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28 NKJV).  This rest He speaks about is the rest of peace in knowing all is well, for Jesus will provide as we sleep (Psalm 127:2 NKJV).
People who are offended rarely see good, only the hardship and struggle to keep what they have going, and miss out on sharing with others who rely and trust on God for their needs, making them offended to see goodness ever coming to those who believe and wait on God to provide for them.
I am one of those who rely totally on God’s provisions for me and my family’s needs and have been in the firing line of those who ridicule me for the way I live trusting that, “God is, and God will provide!”  But just like Jesus, I pay no heed to them for I know what my Saviour has done and is doing every single day of my life for me and my family and without effort.  I just cast all my problems and burdens on Him as the psalmist King David wrote his (Psalm 68:19 GNT) for us to be plentiful and reassured of God’s provision always, for He promised that He would never leave us or abandon us as is written in (Hebrews 13:6 NKJV) “So we boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear.  What can man do to me?”  This then is my post, to love and obey the teachings set by Jesus for us to follow and to believe His Word “the Bible” in its entirety and not be offended as many who have walked away from their faith, only to live up to vain and scarcity in their lives of hopelessness.
Jesus is our hope and it’s only knowing Him through our faith in Him, that all things are made possible to those who trust and wait patiently, never giving up on their desires, and He will fulfil them, for we have only one purpose in life and that is to honour and obey His Word, and all will be well with us and our family.
People who are vain, promise, but never fulfil them.  Unlike God who cannot lie (Titus 1:2 NKJV).  Let’s come to terms with this now.  I believe God is, and God will provide, but many are offended by this, and all I know is the truth – that God is, and God will provide.  For those who have backslidden from their faith – it is never too late to admit their scarcity is due to a lack of faith in Jesus to supply for their needs, for Jesus is and always will be the Saviour of the world, the Redeemer of all losses, especially loss of faith brings in Him to be without hope or a future prospect of goodness and His mercies which are new every morning to us, when we turn 180 degrees from our ways – to face Jesus and His rewards for diligently serving Him in truth and love of mind, will and emotions and knowledgeable acts of wisdom under His leadership in our lives, letting go of all vain desires, for the simple life of pleasure and gratitude in all His provisions for us, for remember one thing – Jesus came that we might have the fullness of the life He gives in the abundance of His will for us to choose life in Him, not apart from Him any longer, so let’s make a commitment now of faith in Him, to serve Him only as our Lord and Saviour, as follows –
”Lord Jesus I truly am sorry for my backslidden faith in you.  I have gone astray and have lived a life of scarcity obsolete from you.  Help me Jesus to know you fully and I now open my heart to receive you as my Lord and Saviour.  Give me the ability through the Holy Spirit’s gifts of wisdom and knowledge to not live apart from you ever again, but to invite you to take hold of my life which is yours, and everything I have is yours, including the family you have given me, thankyou Father, thankyou Jesus, thankyou Holy Spirit, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus, God is, and God will provide!”

THE CONSCIENCE TO BE SEARED WITH TRUTH

It is written in (1 Timothy 4:1-3 NKJV) “Now the Spirit expressively says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.”

(Hebrews 9:11-15 NKJV) tells us that, “But Christ came as high priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.  Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the most holy place once and for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?  And for this reason He is the mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgression under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.”
We are all accountable in life to the best of our ability, but when that changes at some point, with “troubles of mind,” not allowing us to do our rightful roles, it’s got to be something interfering within our conscience that halts all progress to move forward in the true manner of our accustomed life’s approach to do what is our responsibility.  A deceiving spirit will sear one’s conscience to not continue with anything good in their lives, which now appear to be bad choices, instead of the good God created for them to walk in. 
I’m here to tell you, that this is a problem for many people who once were the opposite of stagnate – efficient and involved with life’s many challenges head on, to accomplish and maintain their responsibilities.  Satan deceives people to stop doing those things which God created to be good, through a seared conscience of deception to stagnate and oppose themselves, to accepting any responsibilities as they once did before, believing those as good deeds, now in a dormant state of mind with their conscience fixed upon the deceiver’s lies that, what they had is gone forever, and now they can’t do what they used to do.  How can one person live like that, with a seared conscience of deception making everything look negative, rather than positive and good?  The only way out of this situation is for God to purge the mind clean of the unclean spirits and what they continuously deceive, to get their host off of God’s course of good, into a life of unimportance lived out, with meaningless at the helm of every encounter’s approach, allowing for them to abandon the way of life that is good and fulfilling, to become a useless existence of no hope, no joy, and no commitment for responsibilities to be completed.
Once and for all God completed His work through Jesus on the cross at Calvary, shedding His blood to purge us clean from all our sins and transgressions against the truth lived out in our lives for His good.
This encounter of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins is effective today in all matters dealing with a seared conscience by deception, to be eradicated once and for all, to regain the life status of purposeful living in Christ Jesus, resumed and established in good living once and for all time.
Here is the release prayer from this problem –
”Dear Lord Jesus come into (name’s) mind and wash with your blood, the seared unclean conscience of (name).  I dedicate (his/her) life to you now, to be purged clean by your blood Jesus with the truth to fill all those places now made void within (name’s) conscience, and nothing but the truth forevermore outstanding, that they might live now and for always, with a sound-minded approach to the good life they are living in, with thanksgiving, and to take on challenges and responsibilities with an effortless acceptance and enthusiasm to get things done and to know what is good from the bad, to never cease doing good unconditionally in truth and in honour and dignity to themselves and others, Amen!
Father forgive them for Jesus said on the cross, “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do,” which I now claim for (name) to be washed away by Jesus’ blood, all their transgressions on this account, and to be now filled with the Holy Spirit of truth forevermore in Jesus’ name I trust, Amen!  So beit Lord Jesus to do it, for God is, and God will provide!  And I now draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots!”
 

IT’S TIME TO FINISH WHAT WE STARTED


“The finished work is in the cross at Calvary, where Jesus said, “It is finished.” (John 9:30 NKJV).  We too can acclaim the finished work of Jesus for whatever He has begun in our lives and that of our family’s, which is unfinished business, outstanding from our petition of prayers for that asaid work in somebody’s life within our family to be sufficed by Jesus, once and for all time “NOW!”
I am waiting on the finished work of Jesus, for a long outstanding matter of facts in my precious family member’s life, to take effect, and see the potential of God’s grace to abound where there is no hope, to be hope-filled blessings, to stabilize and bring about the completion of all the prayer request fulfilment of all outstanding matters, to come to pass, and be finished with, so that I can see the finished product in the activation of the asaid family member to be alert and sound-minded with great things ahead of them accomplished, rather than be stagnated from past memories, bringing them down with a hopeless will for anything to be done, other than dwell in the past with regrets of the life they once knew, now lost for ever.
This loss, can take over one’s life to rampage, steal and destroy any future hopes of commitment for any future goals of success in one’s life, to move ahead and be counted as well-deserving of a good lifestyle.  This “good lifestyle of well-deserving” is due to a life of good and meaningful purposes to delight the soul aspect of one’s being, to be confident and self-satisfied in what life brings them, with an attitude of thanksgiving for what they have, and not a demeaningful  lifestyle where no thanksgiving is given for their past – but only regrets of their lost past exists daily for them.  This is a “suspended existence” of lost chances to regain anything good again, but rather an obliteration of anything good ever eventuating in their life, as a result of their choices made, taking them away from what they thought was a good lifestyle, but was really a sustained existence of grief and losses and misery of their lost hopes for any future possibilities ever being any better for them.  This is called, “a suspended existence lifestyle of regrets living in death and disillusionment for what has been lost.”  This will kill any chances for a change in a person’s lifestyle change for the better, ever happening, for Jesus said in (James 1:2-5 NKJV) “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.  But let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.  If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives us liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”  This is exactly what is needed in the person, the family member who is disillusioned by hopefulness, to regain any possibility for the finished work of Jesus, to bear fruit in their lives, for good.
I am now in a state of exactly that for my loved one, who has lost all sense of their capability to have any good come to them, after making a choice, which has changed the course of life they were on, 180 degrees, I believe back on God’s finished work through Jesus to bring them back into His own plan of all good things to be evident once and for all, as a result of answered prayer for my family member, for whom I have petitioned to Jesus for, from long ago, to now be finished in Jesus’ name.
So if you have a family member, who is stagnate in their lost past of hopes and dreams ever being fulfilled, then come along with me now and let’s ask Jesus, to bring to completion the work He began in our family member’s life, to now be accountable and present in today’s living for their good, in the finished work of Jesus on the cross at Calvary, where His blood shed cleanses all unfinished works to be completed lacking in nothing, for our loved one’s future in tact and efficient in wisdom and their faith in Jesus to carry them forward, leaving all their past losses, in the past, to regain the present day blessings of hope and joy brings in Jesus, the finished work of their commitment and abilities enhanced and moving forward, stagnate no more, by saying out loud this prayer request for the finished work of Christ in this matter –
”Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I bring to you (name) to your will to be pronounced in their life, “It is finished,” as you pronounced on the cross at Calvary.  May their sins of lost hopes and dreams of their past, through their change of circumstances through making the right choice to restart a new life from the old, which is now their regrets and fear of moving ahead with the new, be washed away from them, by your precious blood shed on that cross, once and for all, to turn their back on the past now, and live in the present day on and into the future with your wisdom to face the present day challenges, which will bring great prospects of a future life, complete lacking in nothing, I pray now for (name) to be able to say too, “It is finished in Jesus’ name,” Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, God is, and God will provide.!”

 

WAITING TO HAPPEN PREVALENCES (forward anticipation)


“Just like Jesus looked forward for His mission on this earth to be completed, and to return to heaven, God promises that for us too.  When we were born, “God has made us what we are, and in our union with Christ Jesus He has created us for a life of good deeds, which He has already prepared for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10 GNT).  Because of this we are constantly waiting and pursuing the avenues of faith to diligently serve Him as we are continuously walking by faith and not by sight, but many times we encounter hardships to remain constant and stable with the “waiting to happen prevalences “  coming at all.  We lose hope of it ever being seen by us, all our hopes and desires petitioned through our prayers ever eventuating, but I’m here to tell you – do not stop believing with forward anticipation, for God is, and God will provide!

I am one who waited on the Lord for my prodigal to return.  Well 8 years later it happened as He said it would just before the event occurred.  But always my mouth has spoken my faith belief that God said, and He would bring them home again.  I am so thankful to God Almighty for keeping me always in “waiting to happen prevalence,” because if I had not believed, my prodigal could have been lost forever.  I am grateful to have them home safe and sound in God’s will again, to restart anew with God’s plan and not the plan Satan devised to entrap them with no hope, no dignity, and stripped of all “waiting to happen prevalences,” only a mundane lifestyle of same old, same old was offered them, through not waiting on God’s choice for their lifestyle.

Please understand – we can choose our way.  But “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it.” (Psalm 127:1 NKJV).  The house spoken about here, is one’s plans for their future, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV).

What happens when we go on our own journey of life apart from God’s will is this, we reap what we sow, with hardships, and trials constantly at our feet to stagnate any growth possible.  Because of the disobedience, a son, or a daughter, commits against their parents, God cannot honour them with the promise He made to us all in (Deuteronomy 5 GNT), the Ten Commandments in verse 16, “Respect your father and your mother, as I, the Lord your God command you, so that all may go well with you and so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.”  This is how God’s building is built – on obedience to Him as well as to our parents.

When a prodigal comes to their senses, and returns home, it can be difficult for them to adjust back into the good living ways, they were accustomed to before leaving home without their parent’s blessing, nor God’s blessing of peace and tranquillity in having God’s plan of perfection.  So it becomes a struggle for them to adjust to the simple life without dramas occurring day after day.  Jesus said, My peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27 NKJV).  This peace Jesus offers is, peace of mind, that all is well again with them – the prodigal, unlike the life previously offered them, of bad choices making hardships a daily routine.  So with this in mind, I have been given a prayer through the Holy Spirit, for anybody who has a prodigal, a son or a daughter who has returned home, and desires peace within them, rather than regrets and dis-ease at their choice of coming home, to adjust peacefully into God’s plan and will for their good works, as He pre-planned as in (Jeremiah 29:11 GNT), which is God’ building to start its course to build up again what God originally started, but was halted on account of breaking the 5th Commandment, with disobedience–

”Lord Jesus I bring (my daughter, or my son and their names) before you now, in thanksgiving and praise to your Holy Name, for returning (name) back home to me.  Lord Jesus I commit (name) into your hands to conform them in your peace to have your peace always in mind and spirit to bear much fruit in the good works you have already pre-planned for them to walk in.

Dear Jesus I thank you, to bless them with (Jeremiah 29:11) in which, you alone know the plans you have for (name), plans to bring (name) prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future they hope for,” “let not (name’s) heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” according to your Word of (John 14:27), but be of good cheer always in the waiting to happen prevalences that awaits (name) in God’s building up their life strong and at peace with Jesus as Lord of their life in whom they can trust, so be it Lord Jesus to do it, God is, and God will provide!”

THE FALSIFICATION OF ONE’S LIFESTYLE TO APPEASE OTHERS


(Falsification- meaning wrong statement, a deliberate lie).  This would be how we would deal with this problem in one’s lifestyle; Jesus is only interested in the true genuine-hearted approach on life.  He announced on the cross at Calvary that which would forgive those who unconsciously had sinned  not knowing it was wrong, by declaring His pardon by saying, “Forgive them, Father!  They don’t know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34 GNT).  All must be fulfilled in Jesus’ name, so when people have falsified information to appease others, to get their just rights, the only way to change the course of their wrong-doings would be to repent, and by doing this they would gain their justification for God’s grace to abound in their lives, that Jesus forgives and restores His justice and order back into their lives.
It’s called, justification by faith, and the apostle Paul describes this affect in his writings of (Romans 4:24-25; 5:1 NKJV) that, “It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up because of our offences, and was raised because of our justification.  Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  This justification is the right Jesus died on the cross at Calvary, for those who have sinned unknowing the consequences of that sin would rob them of a true life of legal rights, which Jesus claimed by His shed blood at Calvary.  The only way we can acclaim this justification of our rights, would be to claim Jesus as the Lord of our life again, in a simple prayer of rededication, whether it be for ourselves, or others we are believing for, for Jesus said – (James 5:16 NKJV) “And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.  And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.  Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.  The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  This then is our just right of acclaiming God’s justification of our faith in Him through Jesus, through whom “by His stripes we have been healed,” and His righteousness sustains all wrong doings in our lives and for those whom we say this prayer fervently for –
”Lord Jesus you took away the sin of the world in righteousness and truth, fulfilling the Scriptures in (Isaiah 53:5 NKJV) “But He was wounded for our iniquities.  The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. “So in Jesus’ name I now commit myself (or any other) into your hands for your cleansing touch to heal all matters outstanding due to the sin of, “the falsification of one’s lifestyle to appease others,” from continuing to reek havoc and offences in my life (or others) from having the true independent lifestyle you died on the cross to give me (or others) which I now claim as my just right (or others) to be now founded in my life again (and other), for I (and other) am your obedient servant Jesus.  Help me (and other) to know your will apart from the lifestyle I (and others) have been living apart from your will, and wash me and renew me (and others) by your shed blood, that I (and they) might be conformed inwardly by a complete change of mind, to know your will, what is good and is pleasing to the Father and is perfect, with no falsification, but truth everlasting.  I commit my life into your hands Jesus (or others) to take hold of and make anew, “So that it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.  This life that I live now, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave His life for me.” (Galatians 2:20 GNT).  God is, and God will provide, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it!”

THE PROVIDENTIAL CARE OF THE LORD


“According to God’s Word the “Bible,” we are told to have patience and wait on the Lord, for He alone knows our needs and can supply for our every provision, whether it be a house, a car, a spouse and a family, a career of His choice which will benefit many, or just day to day needs with His financial assistance available as we need it, it all comes from Him – Jesus – our provider, our enricher of our faith, and healer of all our diseases.
I am one who has benefited from casting all my cares upon the Lord, “Who carries our burdens day after day.” (Psalm 68:19 GNT).  “Plentifulness” is God’s provision for those who love and obey His instruction according to (Matthew 10:8 GNT) “Heal the sick, bring the dead back to life, heal those who suffer from dreaded diseases, and drive out demons.  You have received without paying, so give without being paid.”  This means not wanting anything in return for doing His will, only to obey His promptings with obedience always to set others who are captives free, for we ourselves were once captives, but by God’s grace, somebody heeded the voice of the Lord, and prayed for us and our redemption from the curse of the law of sin and death brings.
I was heavy once and laden with many burdens, because Jesus was not my saviour, for as a catholic, we were not encouraged to have any relationship with Jesus whatsoever.  Although all my life I knew that He is the Son of God, I never really knew Him, until I needed help, and somebody prayed for me to be healed and set free, to the Father, in Jesus’ name.  Since then, 20 years ago today that I am writing this testimony, I have not known such peace in my life’s reliance on Jesus to sustain my every need and desire for my good, as well as countless others of whom I too have prayed for, in recognition of His plans purposes for us all, to know Him personally “Jesus” who died on the cross at Calvary for all our transgressions, freely, of no charge to us, other than to obey and trust Him in our lives, with our repentance and calling on Him constantly to renew our minds and to conform us inwardly as in (Romans 12:2 GNT) describes, “Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind.  Then you will be able to know the will of God – what is good and is pleasing to Him and is perfect.”  Perfect, what a wonderful word, which means (finished; complete; faultless).
I have to confess I was not perfect, until Jesus became my Lord and Saviour, as He alone can perfect anyone who is prayed for by one other person, or a group, it doesn’t matter, for the power of prayer is so strong and has benefits so extended forward into our future that we will reap the sown seeds in time as God allows, in His perfect timing, to result in the good of all who come under His provision of care of mind, will, and emotions to be aligned for the good of man, as we would want done to us.  Jesus is the Mediator who is the Only One who can forgive our sins, to perfect us, from the inside out, to change us anew, and the old nature gone, by the washing away from His blood poured over our sins, no more to be of a hindrance to us to receive all we have prayed for, as well as the prayers given for us by others who are well-meaning believers, who give freely, because they also have received freely.
This then would be the best position in life – to give freely, because we have received freely, and in turn Jesus cares for us and all we require to be perfect, complete, lacking in “nothing.”  For “nothing” can ever be present once Jesus is the Lord of your life, as many have witnessed His power in their lives, of transformation from “nothingness,” to plentifulness, for Jesus delights in His promises to us in (Hebrews 13:5-6 GNT) “Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be satisfied with what you have.  For God has said, “I will never leave you I will never abandon you.”  Let us be bold then and say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afaid.  What can anyone do to me?”  Nothing, when we place our lives in His hands, Jesus of Nazareth, who will always provide for the good outcomes in all our circumstances, when we rely and trust Him.
So let’s begin now with declaring our sustenance for all our life’s needs, belong to Jesus, for He is the Way, and  only way to the Father, who loves us and cares about our future destiny, that “He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
So now come with me too, and enlist in the joys of the Lord in having Jesus the supplier of all our needs met, financially, relationally, and the perfector of all things due to us according to His will and purposes for our good and the good of others, by declaring out loud, this prayer of petition for ourselves, or any others’ needs, as we pray to Jesus our Mediator –
”Lord Jesus I am yours.  I now come to you with thanksgiving and praise in all that your will has allowed in my life, and those whom I have prayed for in your precious name, believing for them, as well as for myself that you would conform and perfect us, from the inside out, to your standards of living as you have promised in your Word of (Romans 12:2), so be it Lord Jesus to do it as unto your will and timing, and may we learn to live according to your perfect will always, in now declaring to you Jesus, that we are now the righteousness of God the Father as new and complete, lacking in nothing, for your blood shed at Calvary has washed us clean to commence anew, with you at the helm of our journey of life, that we never look back, but be renewed in mind and spirit to be chastened by you through the Holy Spirit, who will guide us through all truth, to repent of all sins which bring a separation between us and our true and meaningful relationship with you Jesus to be always our Lord and Saviour forever and ever all the days of our lives, for without you we can do nothing, but with you Jesus all things are made possible.  So to you alone Jesus be the glory for not forsaking me when I have sinned, but lovingly led me in your ways, to acknowledge all my sins and to hand them all over to you now Jesus, as I believe now I am washed and cleansed from them all by your blood, and I am a new creation as you intended for me, as well as those who have repented also due to my witnessing to them.
God is, and God will provide, for the outcomes of joy in our answered prayers coming to fruition now and for always, Amen, and I trust and obey His Word the Bible for my instruction manual on life’s needs to give freely as I and we have received freely – so we should do to others, in honour of Jesus the Son of God, Amen.  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, God is, and God will provide!”

THE DISTENSION LIVING UNDER GOD’S WRATH


“What is God’s wrath?  Well if we look in (Genesis 3:2 NKJV) “And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden, but of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, “You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.”  From this warning, she Eve, should have heeded the voice of the Lord, instead she followed the promptings of Satan the serpent, to touch and then eat the fruit and even gave it to her husband Adam to eat, (Genesis 3:4-6 NKJV).
This concluded their free reign in the Garden of Eden and their expulsion from it, to endure God’s wrath of curses upon their lives from that moment onwards, because they had turned asunder from God and His rule and reign in their lives, now to endure hardships they had not known in the garden, for God’s wrath is the punishment for disobedience in our lives too, and as is written in (Genesis 3:17 NKJV) “Cursed is the ground for your sake, in toil you shall eat from it all the days of your life.”  This is the distension which causes the separation from God, to do without His help and provision, but to be torn asunder (apart), by tragedy, to become parted and severed into two parts.
We belong to God who created us and is and must be sovereign in our lives, but many times this becomes an impossibility through our disobedience to His Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 5:1-21), that if we choose against His laws of life, living in a tranquil state, letting Him be sovereign and not our own fleshly desires to govern our ways, then He has no choice to remove Himself from us in all care, and hand us over to the tormentor Satan who will tear us apart from having any meaningful relationship with God, distending us as well from His provisions as in the past before we sinned against Him.
We can conquer this distension and God’s wrath continuing in our lives to destroy and pull apart what God has joined together – marriages and parents with their children, and inherit God’s blessings once again in a common ground basis living united to Jesus who was slain on the cross for all our transgressions and who can reassure His forgiveness and restitution as He had already planned and provided before we sinned with our disobedience and carelessness towards God’s sovereign rule and command to be diligent and upright in our progress in life with His attention always at hand over us when we choose His life over Satan’s who tempts so that we can be put asunder from God, and our families parted as well, through tragedies and set upon to form distended families separated and not united any longer.
We can end this curse of distension, by letting go of the past and bringing our lives into alignment with God’s will and plans for a unified life of Godly based living with His plans and purposes fulfilled, and not in demise of all categories, to enjoy the family he has blessed us with and to be unified once again as He originally intended, that is, before Satan tempted Adam and Eve to disobey God, when they became separated from God.  The only mediator between us and God, is His Son Jesus, for He alone could cause our sins to be washed by His blood shed at Calvary (Galatians 3:13), which gives us a legal right to acclaim Jesus as our Saviour and Redeemer to help us at all times to be forgiven for our sins, when we turn to Him in repentance – as this –
”Lord Jesus I am truly sorry for my distension separating me from the love of the Father.  I am truly sorry for all my sins of disobedience outstanding, which have caused the distension from God and my own family to have happened.  I am truly sorry and repent in dust and ashes for the separation from your will in my life and my family’s separation as the cause of your wrath in my life and theirs Father God.  Please count me as worthy of your love and favour through Jesus Christ who has taken away all my sins on this account, and washed us clean from them with His precious blood shed at Calvary, that we might again be united in one accord with you Father God in Jesus’ name, and to be united as one again with our family, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, God is and God will provide, Lord Jesus come and live in our midst as our Lord and Saviour, Amen!”

FINANCIAL DISARRAY


“According to (Matthew 18:6 GNT) “If anyone should cause one of these little ones to lose his faith in Me, it would be better for that person to have a large millstone tied around his neck and be drowned in the deep sea.”
The reason for financial failure comes from the curse of financial disarray in one’s family background, causing a financial unprofitability to occur in one of the family’s members, to recur again and again in one’s generational bloodline, so as to continue its rummaging of financial gain – not possible – only to make an indentured lifestyle of indebtedness lifestyle apparent, to overwhelming proportions of losses, due to the unravelling of all financial disarray made possible through the generational bloodline curses of Indentured lifestyle of indebtedness lifestyle.  This will hamper progress taking place, for it is written that we are to depend on God for all our provisions, for Jesus taught His disciples in (Matthew 6:26 GNT) “Look at the birds: they do not plant seeds, gather a harvest and put it in barns; yet your Father in heaven takes care of them!  Aren’t you worth much more than birds?”  Therefore, why worry for what you need, for God provides for those who love Him always, and it’s only when we “mistrust” that we lose out on His abundances of His supplying for our needs met to His destiny for us, that Satan lives up to his standards to destroy and kill off any potential of success ever eventuating for the long run, to gain trust again by having the Holy Spirit enhance that trust so that it will have a chance to regain the composure of trustworthiness to those whom God delights to bring forward to spend their lives together, with us included.
To enable this blockade to be removed and to have trust regained, we need to enhance our trust and faith to regain the will of God back – this is a prayer of release – 
”Lord Jesus I trust you with all my heart and soul.  Enable me by the Holy Spirit to be able to gain the trustworthiness of those to whom you have allowed into my life to share and to be included into theirs.
Lord Jesus I place this need into your loving hands and, I praise you in Jesus’ name Father God for over-seeing all my needs for future commitments to be allowed in trustworthiness enhanced to them and to me, in Jesus’ name I will forevermore trust, Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it!  God is and God will provide for the outcomes according to His destiny plan for me and those whom He has chosen for me and my family to share and be included in their lives too.”
