    Freedom From Bondage

    Is there something that is preventing you from becoming everything that God created you to be? Are your sinful habits holding you back from true joy and fulfillment? The enemy can keep you captive with his sinful enticements and God's spiritual armor can help you battle the enemy's temptations. Through God's grace you can find freedom from bondage and experience the abundant life God has for you.

    What does it mean to Work Out Your Salvation?

    I think a lot of believers don't know what it means to work out your own salvation. Many, I've come to realize think this means that salvation comes by works and not of free gift of grace through Jesus Christ. So, let's study this. I found a great little bible study on this passage below.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

God Wants Us All To Live and To Have An Abundant Life

Discussion in 'Counseling' started by AbbysAunt, Aug 25, 2012.

  1. John 10:10-11 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep

    Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths

    I wasn't sure where to post this but it seems appropriate to put it here in this section of the forums. Life is full of trials and yes heartaches and when these times come and we are forced to face or deal with them our first instinct because we are human is to ask " why is this happening God?" we can't understand why things happen or why circumstances are the way they are, but in the bible we are told that we aren't to lean on our own understanding. I believe that we being human can't even begin to understand what God does and we could drive ourselves crazy trying to understand or figure it out when trials or situations arise, but God says we don't have to understand. Lean not on your own understanding just trust Me and know that I am in control and working to bring you through and I will not leave nor will I forsake you. Just Trust Me says our Lord Jesus. God wants what is best for us if He didn't He wouldn't of given His own Son for us so that we could be forgiven and reconciled to Him. Jesus is our Good Shepherd and He gave His life for us His sheep so that we might have life and have it abundantly, but how can we have that abundant life if we are busy trying to figure those things out that we cannot even begin to understand. We also need to realize that there are things that can hinder us from having that abundant life. When we go through things we tend to let our emotions rule our thoughts and actions. Emotions and feelings like hate, anger, bitterness, jealousy, resentment are like a cancer that if not given to God will fester in your heart, mind and soul eat you alive from the inside...that isn't living the abundant life that our Lord and Savior gave His own life holding on to those things we only hurt ourselves and put up a road block of sorts in our relationship with Jesus. "You just don't understand what i've been through or the hurt i've had in my life" well, this may be very true but there is one who does understand and He is there arms open wide saying give me your heartaches, your hurts, give me the jealousy, hate, pain, anger, bitterness and resentment let me take them from you and replace them with a love, comfort and peace that you have never known before, that can only come through and by Me if only you will let me. Trust Me, lean on Me, Let Me mend your broken heart I am here just come to Me.

    To Live the abundant life Jesus has intended for us means we are filled with His Joy because He is our joyand our strength, and it means that even in the midst of hard times we know there is someone there who provides us with everything we need and will comfort us, love us and give us a peace like none other and will bring us through. We are saved by His blood that covers us and cleanses us from our sins so why not while we're here on this earth enjoy our lives the lives that He Himself gave His own for...satan would love nothing more than to take our joy and try to destroy us, but guess what with Jesus on our side we cannot be destroyed because we are victorious in Him. " I may be down right now and I may not understand why things happen or why im going through what I am, but I know that Jesus is working for me and that He will bring me through and I will not stay down but instead get down on my knees and praise Him for being with me right now in the midst of (insert whatever you may be going through), I will praise Him for being the God He is strong, powerful, unchanging, unmovable and loving beyond any measure that I can imagine, Praise Him because He saved me when I couldn't save myself and Praise Him because He will never leave me nor forsake me, I will Praise Him and not stop and no matter what you do satan I am and will always be a child of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords I am His and He is mine! Hallejuah and Praise be unto Him! " When you are tired, weary, sad, and it seems so hard to praise or worship let me encourage to say that simple prayer of praise to our Lord and to know that God wants you to have life and to have it abundantly.

    God's blessings flow upon you and fill you to overflowing

  2. Once our trial on Earth is done without losing our faith since our whole lives is protected with Jesus living in our hearts, where Satan has been deliberately released on Earth to awaken our strong faith in Christ, we will know for sure the true joy of Christ once our newly transformed minds and bodies become pure and sinless, where I believe sexual feelings would have never been experienced had Adam and Eve stayed obedient to God's forbidden tree rules: sexual feelings that come and go will be replaced with the joy of Christ that will keep us positive every second of our future lives with Christ in his massive and most futuristic community-built city during Christ's global rule on a new planet Earth: the Kingdom of God .:*:.
