|The God That Ponders The Heart|
|Proverbs 21:2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is nothing that one can hide from God. He can everything from the thought to the action. God doesn't work on the outside but the inside. Most walk around and think we've got God fooled by hiding. The great thing is that He knows what we are capable of. He knows each and everyone of us when we were formed in the womb.
David was the youngest of his siblings, a runt. He was given the lowest job, a Shepard, but he loved it. God seen that David was important and had him anointed by Samuel. David went out to fight Goliath because Goliath stood against his God. David had confidence that his God would take care of him no matter what. Everyone around David looked at him from the outside, they judged him by his outward appearance not knowing what God knew and could see. They were focused too much on the outward appearance. Just as we do, we are too quick to judge someone based on their appearances. We also miss out on victories because we are too focused on the mountain.
When God ponders the heart He doesn't care what we think because He knows. He will address the sin with you but we like to justify those sins. He tries to mold us into more like Him by trying to get us to repent of those sins.

|Weapons In The War|
|2 Corinthians 10:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A stronghold is something that has a hold of one that is strong. Addictions, fear, doubt and a lack of faith are all strongholds. Jesus can help you only if you let Him. Some say that we use Jesus as a crutch but the truth is, we should. We should depend on Him with anything and everything from the largest to the smallest things in life. Now we as humans do not have the ability to break a stronghold but we know the one that can.
The war against the strongholds are not and will not be the carnal objects. Most that want help want it instantly which they will turn to drugs, medication and alcohol. The carnal objects are temporary just covering up the strongholds. So how do we fight against the strongholds?
Eph 6:14-17 these items are spiritual items, they can't be physically seen.
If you want out of the stronghold then ask God to have it removed but you must be ready AND willing. If we believe that God can remove the strongholds then why are they still in our lives? Because we think we can fix it ourselves. One problem is that non-spiritual people are thinking they can be cured of their stronghold thru God. The unsaved can't speak spiritually because they do not have the spirit of God in them. Now if you're born again then you have a power within you that is able to remove the strongholds. The second problem is that the saved try to fix it with fleshly fixes. The saved should be praying for the strongholds to be removed from others lives. If you're one of the ones that try to fix the problems yourself then you'll walk around worrying yourself to a literal death.

|Galatians 6:7-10 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|Seems as if there is a great need for patience. Folks don't seem to want to wait anymore for just about everything. When we plant a garden we plant seeds, those seeds take time to grow. If one is patient then they should receive a great harvest.
There is a reaping whether it be a good harvest or bad. Depending on what is sowed depends on what is reaped. Consequences for sin is a harvest that can never be removed for the rest of ones life. We all have a choice to make whether they will do good or bad. Don't be deceived because the penalty for sin is great. Some of the leaders of our country are deceived. We can make laws and change them to try to make a persons live a certain way but none of these changes will ever lead to goodness. People no longer have the fear of God in their hearts therefore they live a life of worldliness. God holds your very breath and should be reverenced as such. For whatever reason God still has mercy for this country even though most have forgotten who He truly is.
No matter where you go in your life at least one of Gods people will be with you. Don't be deceived by what the world says. Just as in Noah's time, they mocked God and him as he built the ark. In the end, God sent the flood and only saved those that believed In Him, Noah's family.
Now if one plants a seed of corn then one expects a stalk of corn to grow from that seed. Why would anyone expect anything less about the choices of the way they live and sow life or death. There is a difference in knowing that you're doing wrong and continuing and not knowing. To know and do against it is called rebelling.
One can't live like they want to during the week and expect God to be worshipped on Sunday. So we should sow to the Spirit Monday thru Sunday and we will reap what we sow. How many struggle on Mondays to show your happy in your spirit? We should take every opportunity we get to uplift our fellow man especially our brothers and sisters in Christ. But, something holds us back and it's because we are humans and therefore we are sinners. We should fight against the sinful nature of our flesh striving to overcome it to uplift the name of Jesus.
If you act like, dress like, talk like and look like the world, then how is the world supposed to know that you're a Christian?
Seeds don't grow instantly, therefore don't give up. People usually don't come to Jesus instantly, don't give up on them! Keep planting the seeds of love and be patient.

|Faith of a Child|
|2 Kings 5:1-15 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|People often limit themselves because they feel as if they are unworthy.
We are all the same as we are all sinners. The difference is that if you've been born again then your a sinner saved by grace yet, still a sinner.
God is the same God that He was yesterday for He still hasn't changed. Once you've been born again there should be a burden to tell everyone what God has done for you. The work and sharing of God can sometimes be physical or by words it can also be by living it day in and out. We should all want to be changed and want to receive a double portion of His love everyday.
Don't we want something for our people? The devil is doing his very best to destroy them all. We all need a double portion, a filling up of Gods love and power to do His will. In most cases children tend to simply believe things that are told to them. Adults grow to harden their hearts and doubt what they hear and see. This makes it more and more difficult to believe a simple message and truth of Jesus to be born again.
The power of God is not in us but in God that dwells in us that are saved. The power of God comes out by obedience. Our faith in God can make a difference because He is limitless. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

|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.|
