Simply Endure...

Has there ever been a time within your life where it seemed as though someone was striving to CONVINCE you that YOU were unhappy?

ღ♪ Has there ever been a time within your life where it seemed as though someone was striving to CONVINCE you that YOU were unhappy? And even so, it continued further into, God knows your heart, so it is best to say that you are unhappy because you have to be. You know at the end of the day if you admit to being unhappy because God knows your heart, then it will validate my personal insecurities and unhappiness.

ღ♪ Does anyone remember one of the first test that Christ ever had to endure? Beginning in Matthew 4. Notice it started RIGHT after the NEW birth of Christ, his baptism, in chapter 3 by John the baptist. Here's the lesson, the devil comes before and after a blessing. In verse 4, Christ had the final say as He proclaimed the significance of GOD over satan. He told him, " Man shall not live by bread alone!! BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PRECEDE OUT OF THE MOUTH OF CHRIST."

ღ♪ Ms. Lisa what's the lesson, I wanted to share this experience with you because, we have to be in love with the process of trusting and leaning on GOD'S word. TRIALS will come others will strive to distract you, many will strive to convince you that you do not desire to be happy. BUT FAMILY, I stopped by to tell you, THE ONLY way we can make it to heaven is to know, THAT WE CANNOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PRECEDES OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

ღ♪ These are the last and EVIL day's family, start storing up God's word in your heart, AND in your mind! Romans 12:1. We have to become our best defense, And what is that? Living, breathing, submitting to the word of God, NOW what? HE WHO IS FAITHFUL WILL MAKE A WAY OUT OF THE TEMPTATION! Listen to this, I Cor 10:13-No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it!

ღ♪ Romans 4: 17-As it is written I had made thee a father of many nations before him whom he believed, even God, who quickens the dead, and calleth (SPEAK) those things which be, as though they were. GOD COMMANDS US TO SPEAK THOSE THINGS AS THOUGH THEY WERE. Speak happiness and joy over your life, over experiences; KNOW that God who is rich in love, will provide and support our emotional stability! Speak endurance during the fight, speak victory, success, joy, love, and peace, SPEAK CONTENTMENT.

ღ♪ It is satans desire that we live and sustain spiritual insufficiency. NOT CHRIST, for His grace, is SUFFICIENT! His mercies are EVERLASTING! Christ was and is the ultimate success stories and example of the endearment of pain. He ENDURED that we MIGHT maintain!

ღ♪ Why, Paul said it best-Phil 4:12-13, 12. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. When are you going to get up and let go and let God? Allow God's spirit (John 4:24) to live inside of you. Then God again, will MAKE A WAY OUT! Guess what?

ღ♪ As my day continued, and I thought "FATHER, I cannot take one more withdrawal today!" God will send an angel, working on HIS behalf. In all actuality they may not even realize that God sent them, BUT He will send His message. He sent me one yesterday. This lady and I were engaged in a general conversation and then out of nowhere the words that were (God's purpose) expressed caught me off guard. She said, do not GIVE UP! I did not catch it the first time she said it.

ღ♪ Then it was like that thing, resignation boiled within my soul! God allowed her to speak it again. "DO NOT GIVE UP!" I stopped-as now our eyes were fixed. Why? BECAUSE HE WAS MAKING A WAY OUT! Third time she says "DO NOT GIVE UP." My head immediately looked down, as I smiled to myself, giving myself an emotional hug.

♪ Christ in all of his majesty, touched my heart: MY Child, hard headed, disobedient, loving, forgetful, sometimes prideful child of MINES, whom I LOVE SO MUCH. Guess what==> Matthew 28:20 (specifically) "and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Endure family NOW! This is my story, God said it, I am doing it, and I am sticking to it!
