Sadly, pedophile scandals continue to emerge throughout the world month after month, while the Mainstream Media (MSM) continues to ignore the global size and scope of this aberrant satanic depravity that grips the world. Enormous amount of scandals continue to grow involving the powerful, rich and elite of our societies. It's becoming increasingly difficult to cover the many instances of this worldwide sexual exploitation that is often organized by the very same people that have immense influence on our culture.
I am rereading the Bible. It is fascinating how many times I have read Genesis, yet I always notice something “new.” I am realizing that the Word of God is a living thing because of the fact that I can learn something no matter how many times I may have read the same scriptures. I am thinking that maybe I notice “new” things when I reread because they are then applicable to my life at that moment.
Are you so focused on your failures, missed opportunities, mistakes, trials, etc…that you miss God’s beauty? Do you overlook the blessings that you already have because they don’t match the “pictures of success” in your mind? If yes, then you are looking at the wrong things. You are listening to the deceiver who doesn’t want you to be joyful, hopeful, and faithful. You are allowing yourself to have a pity-party-of-one, which honestly I believe makes Satan happy and God a bit sad. Don’t worry, I’m talking to myself here also.
My daughter decided to take the plunge and get baptized. Honestly, she has thought about it for two whole years. She did not want to be hasty, so she took her time before making her decision. Her dad and I are very happy for her, but we also have warned her that now that she has made the complete decision to walk in the way, she will face attacks from the deceiver.
The deceiver does not like it when one of us decides to fully become a child of God. That is why being prepared is vital in our Christian walk.
And what does the Lord require of you Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion), And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness] (Micah 6:8, Amplified).
Am I the only one that finds it hard to “walk” humbly with God when you don’t know the direction you are going? I know that life has many curves and ups and downs, but it is so hard sometimes to try not to force or fix situations.
