|The Will of God|
|Romans 8:26-28 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Have you ever been in a place where you didn't know what to do?
Things that are known of the will of God, everything that's inside the Bible is His will. Gal 1:14; Jesus Christ gave Himself for our sins. It wasn't something that just happened. It's not Gods will that anyone should die lost. It's a personal choice when God calls that Salvation is excepted. 1 Thes; it's Gods will that we all to be holy. We should try to live sinless at all times. 1 Thes 5:13; we should also give thanks to God no matter what happens. Those are things that are known about Gods will. One must read and study Gods Word in order to know what His will is for our lives.
Just as we know what His will is, there are also things we don't know. Don't we beat ourselves up over doing the right things? Most all people don't want to do the wrong things. Now the devil likes to confuse and he can come to us and whisper to us and we are fooled into thinking it was God. This is why we are to try the spirits. Rom 8:26 is clear stating that we usually don't know what to do. Christ Himself wrestled with it in the garden making sure He was to follow thru with His sacrifice, His crucifixion. So how do we know we are doing the right thing, the Spirit of God dwells inside those that are saved and it makes intercession for those. This is the direct connection to doing the right things. Now if you've got sin in your heart then you're going to have a really hard time hearing and knowing what God says to you. This is because sin blocks out Gods communication because He can't help over the sin. Rom 8:27 this speaks about the shepherding of Jesus Christ searching out the heart and knowing the mind and whether it's truly yearning for God. If the mind of the spirit yearns for God then He makes intercession in our behalf to God His father. Rom 8:28 clearly states that ALL things work together for those that love God. The variable is that if we love the world or some of it then you're not 100% in love with God. That has always been the problem with us as humans. We should love Him more than anything else and if we do, nothing else will matter because it will ALL be taken care of.
This all sounds simple but the devil comes against us and causes us to doubt and fear. This happens because he wants to destroy us all. The little things are usually what we struggle with but put your focus on God and your relationship with Him.

|What More Do You Want?|
|Numbers 13:23-14:4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
Only God is sovereign and only He knows our hearts. People usually think that everything goes to Heaven when it dies. Dogs, cats, loved ones and other living things. The truth is that only saved living souls will go to Heaven.
The children of Israel had proof of God, grapes that took two men to carry that they all ate from, water that flowed from a rock once struck by a stick, in the desert a cloud followed them to shade them, fire to guide them by night, food that fell from the sky and yet they did not believe. Still today when God performs miracle after miracle all around you and yet you still don't believe. The question is not about whether God exist but if He's the son of God. We acknowledge that God created the world that we live in because there is proof all around us. We live in His creation, we take the breath that He gives, we see birth after birth and yet we still want MORE proof that He Is God. It only took one negative report for the entire group of Israelites to doubt Gods work.
Each day, each second the adversary is lying to you trying to get you to doubt Gods existence. One can not believe the doubts, lies from the enemy and yet still believe in Christ. If you don't believe the bible simply look towards history, the walls of Jericho fell down. A great and fortified wall which fell by simply walking around it. 40 years the Israel people wondered around in a circle all on the wilderness until all the unbelievers died. Joshua and Caleb was a old man and was forced to wait 40 more years just because others wouldn't believe and yet once the time came they still believed. John 12:42-43 even then people believed in a god but didn't believe in God. You can say all day long that you know or believe in what God can and did do, but in the end, salvation is the only way to Him. Salvation is a confession in Jesus Christ and that He was risen from the grave. Rom 10:8-10 what does the bible say?

|Romans 6:1-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Don't allow your old bones to run your life. The foot of the cross is always level. The devil usually comes with you with the same things over and over again. John 10:10 tells us that Satan is all about destruction. Can you recognized the grace of God? Psa 103:8; 12-14 has it ever crossed your mind what might have been if Jesus hadn't come into your life when He did? Salvation is not a license to sin. We should protect our witness from Satan. Grace came because Jesus knew us therefore we must be born again. No matter how old you are in Christ, you should still have a conviction of sin. We as Christians should be in constant pursuit of perfection. John 16:7-11 there is no amount of parental push that could convict one of their sins. Only God can convict one of their sins as God knows the heart. The Holy Spirit must be at work before one can be saved. John 16:9 unbelief is the main culprit and the most basic of sins. James 4:7 will always make the Devil mad. Eph 4:21-32 always speak the truth. We should never let the day end being mad at someone. Theft should never be a part of a Christians life. A Christian should work in order to receive for the giving to others in need.|

|The Wiles of the Devil|
|Ephesians 6:10-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Satan is a created being and is no different than the angels in heaven. Satan has many tactics that he uses on the children of God on a daily basis. The thief has come to steal, kill and destroy. The thief is the devil and the wicked spirits that serve him. Their are enough to spread across the world. The devil does not have free rein of a christian because we are protected by the shield of God. John 10:10, 2 Cor 2:11, Eph 6:16, 1 Peter 5:8 We truly have an enemy and we can not stand in the flesh to fight him. It takes something greater than the flesh to fight him because he is in the sprint therefore must be fought in the spirit. He is not omnipresent but has many demons that do his handy-work. This world currently is the devils domain until Jesus comes back. The very thing that we live in, the flesh, wants to live in the world because of it’s lust. Nothing has changed since Adam and Eve because he is still deceiving and lying to people everyday. What a terrifying thing to be able to see with our eyes the spiritual warfare that goes on all around us. If we are saved then we are protected by Gods great hand and satan can not get to us unless God allows it. When Jesus died, He died for ALL but many will not submit to Him. If you’re playing with the devil he will take you further than you ever thought you would go quicker than you ever thought. When you light a match and place that flame under your hand, you will pull your hand back because there is a nerve that warns you of danger. Just as that nerve warns you, God also warns you of the dangers of the devil. Satan wants to destroy your testimony if you’re saved. Satan will use anything he can to tear you down. He will use religion itself to bring you down. If you are saved then you’re going to heaven but that doesn’t mean that if you play with the devil that he will keep people around you lost and going into hell. We hear it everyday, pastors having affairs because satan laid a woman in their lives. We as humans are ignorant to satan’s lies and deceptions.|

|The Ram Is In The Thicket|
|1 Corinthians 10:13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The trials we go through are common but they seem personal when they affect our selves. But why do we go through them? First we need to understand temptation. Temptation is a test given from someone. We must ask ourselves if the test is from God or Satan. 1 Peter 1:1-9, at times it might feel as if the test is too hard. If it's a test of God then it's to grow you as a stronger Christian. In these test from God we can either pass or fail them. We can always run away and try to do it ourselves but when it's Gods test we can only run so far on our own. At times we like to blame the devil for tests that are of God. When God makes a promise He will keep it to the very end. God is always very purposeful in everything. Through tribulation we receive patience. The trial of your faith strips away the worldly trusts to point the focus all back upon God. He gives us our health, financial freedoms, etc. God will never test you with evil. The devil will test us with things that appeal to the lust of the flesh. God will not test you with another women to check your love for your wife. This means that for the most difficult battles you've went through God was behind them? Yes, because those are the toughest items to break through in your life. We usually don't have the answers to why He tests. We often don't have the answers as to when the test will begin or start. In the end, we will make it through because in the end the answer is because God brought me through.|
