Greeting dear sister. My thoughts have not escape from you since after reading your post here. I got also some chances reading your previous posts here before and now you're returning with the same dilemma dear sister. This cycle of defeat have not yet been broken in your life. How I just hate the devil seeing how he's feasting on peoples lives and how we continually allow him to do in us whereas God in His loving kindness and tender mercy through our Lord Jesus Christ had already given us all to become victors and no longer a victim.
First of all beloved creation of God, I as just want to say that NO ONE, yep not even one, not even a single person had really become GOOD enough for God for the Scripture says "No one is righteous, not even one (Romans 3:10), everyone has gone astray, all have sinned and had fallen short of God's glory and deserved to be condemned (Romans 3:23)". We may name all of the good people we know, yet apart from the Lord Jesus Christ, their goodness are even considered as filthy rags in the sight of God (Isaiah 64:6). The Psalmist said "apart from God, we have no good thing (Psalm 16:2). Yet God in His great love send us His only begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to save us from eternal damnation by believing in Him, on what He has done for us. Jesus died for us dear Sister and by that in accepting Him and believing Him in our lives, we become WORTHY, we are given the RIGHT to be called children of God (John 1:12). Dear Sister, this is for you and for me. And if the Lord indeed liveth in us, Jesus reigns in our lives, God has already bestowed every good thing unto us and for us. We are already made worthy for the Lord sister. The question is will you let God rule or reign in your life?
Second point I want to make is, I just want share my prayers for you, that with the gift of life and strength the Lord is giving you everyday, you may be able to use it as God desires it for you. Use the strength that God is giving you, combat every negative thought causing you to be depressed and feel defeated. Praying you will be able throw those thoughts away in Jesus name. Praying that if there's anything you need to surrender to the Lord causing your depression and cycle of defeat, you will learn to let go of it. Praying that time will come, in the name of Jesus you will rise up from the ashes FC and shine for God's glory.
I have come here in TJ 2008 with this single purpose, that is to receive help and light to my confuse estate that time, to gain more knowledge and insight that maybe useful to my Spiritual Journey.But as time goes on, the Lord has been talking to me that I need a change of heart and mine why I'm coming here. After that I was put into different testings in a way I cannot even come here for help anymore (lasted almost 3 years). Praying, praying that the Lord has to mold me, clean my heart and change my mind, then He gave me a life verse (my signature here) of which I am aiming to live here and every where the Lord would bring me. Beloved and dear Sister in Christ, how I just pray really, to see you soon one of not wanting and receiving help anymore, but at least to be able to render one also in the near future. I will not give you any more advice on what you must do, brighthouse said it all already (lol).
God bless you and thanks for staying with us here.
Sister in Chris Jesus,
@Brighthouse ... that's awesome Bro. Joining the heavenly host now praising the Lord for those two precious souls. Yay. To God be the glory!!!
Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Matthew 20:28 :hands:
