|Long Suffering But Not Ever Suffering|
|2 Peter 3:3-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God only promised one opportunity to be saved, only one time will He invite you. We should be thankful for the chastening that God does to us. The chastening indicates that He loves us and wants what's best for us in His image. God shows us patience over and over and yet He doesn't have to. There are times we as Christians choose to go against what God has told us to do. During those times of disobedience God is longsuffering to us. At times we seem to think that if we can't see Him then we won't get caught, just the same as a child acts away from their parents. But God is all knowing and can see everywhere and everything. During those times of disobedience there will come a time where Gods longsuffering will come to an end and He will draw a line in the sand. He will show up when you're least expecting Him and place a stopping point. If you choose to step over the line that He has drawn then you've forced Him to remove the problem. Just as a disobedient child and a loving parent. The child will be warned to obey but there will come a time when the child disobeys to the point that the parent must intervene and remove the child's pleasures. If you're a child of a God and are living in disobedience, it's no surprise when He deals with you. God is raising children and He is trying to grow us into His likeness. If you're walking thru your Christian life and you know God is chastening you, count it a blessing because you're one of His. Gods patiences does and will run out. Don't push Him till His patiences runs out on you.|

|Are You Blessed?|
|Psalm 84:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There should be something that fuels a child of God. Where is your strength? We as humans have no strength without God.
How many people want to be blessed? In these verses it refers to man which means mankind. These are grace given blessings because we didn't ask for them.Psalm 84:5 it's not about us but all about Him.
Psalm 65:4 if you're saved then you've been chosen.
Psalm 32:2 the saved have been forgiven.
Psalm 94:12 the saved are loved thru chastening.
The following are obedience based blessings.Psalm 34:8 we should trust in God, always. Sometimes you're gonna have to take a stand for Christ. Prov 3:5
Psalm 112:1 the word of God will bless you but you MUST study it and take it in. Wisdom is obtained by fearing God, not in fright but knowing He controls it all. Just as a child respects their parents, they learn by obedience. If the child has no respect they turn disobedient and rebellious which the outcome will often come with negative consequences.

|Wrestling With God|
|Genesis 32:22-32 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Life brings forth tough things that people must go through. Most of the time when you've done something wrong and you run from it, hiding, thinking that no one will find out. No matter the circumstances, we will all reap what we've sown. Many people run and run until they finally get to the end of the trail forcing them to make a decision. Some will run and will make their choice to turn away from their sin and run towards God, while others make their choice to continue in their sin knowing they should stop and turn away. The consequences to continuing in sin is a dreadful end, death at times. If you're one of Gods, a Christian and you've turned a deaf ear towards God, He will grab ahold of you until you break. He does this because He loves you just as a caring parent loves a disobedient child. Did you know you can pray a prayer telling God that you won't let go of God until He blesses you? God wants us to give up on ourselves and rely solely on Him.|

|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|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.|
