Your Spiritual Walk
I left out 2 words in my last post. "one of". (As in, One of the best things about belonging to the Lord.) We no longer have to rely on our own strength. There are far too many blessing to count when one turns their life over to the Lord, so to say "the best thing" implies one. That is in NO WAY what I was meaning to say:-/ When we accept Christ, the Holy Spirit is with us, helping us, guiding us. A slow memory is no big deal for Him. :-)

Sis. Shira, the best thing about belonging to the Lord is, we don't have to rely on "our" memory. If we've put in the time to "study & show ourselves approved", the Lord will bring back to memory the Scripture as it is needed in our lives. :-) He knows how & is perfectly capable of being our memory for us. Don't you worry one second over your ability (or lack of it) to remember those Scriptures you memorized. They're still in your brain & God our Father will help you. :-)

Reba, I liked what you said,
"However,I would love to be close enough to God to hear Him fast & without fail. With absolute clarity to know His will in every situation."
That would be great but as humans we might not like many things He does because we are human beings and cannot comprehend why some have to die and other don't. God knows all things and why He has to do things a certain way. I suppose it is better we don't know and just depend on Him for everything, knowing in our hearts that He is always righteous.
Just to think He controls all things in His plan. The lives of all people, what they do, where they are heading, where they will live and how they will die. I suppose it is better not to know.

I know the feeling of peace when talking with the Lord & I've seen prayers answered on a regular basis. However,I would love to be close enough to God to hear Him fast & without fail. With absolute clarity to know His will in every situation. No hesitation or wondering. I'd love for my faith to be that strong-that solid! But I know that waiting is part of the building faith process. I just kinda-wanta skip that part sometimes:-)

Sis Lidia: I pray all the time that the good Lord should increase me in obedience to Him & increase me in submission to HIS will (wherever & whenever it is recognized).

Wow! Bro.MarkV a fantastiq gift to ask the Lord Almighty. Yes! be wonderfull, we all be so gratefull 1st to Our Father God for it! vs. maybe appropiate:
Ps.71:19(last line)Who,O God,is like you?
71:20.Though you have made me,see troubles,many and bitter,you will restore my life again,from the depths of the earth you will bring me up.

Sister Lidia, there is one thing I would love to receive from the Lord. The real ability to heal. Not what is shown on tv and all those preachers. But real healing. The first place I would go is to Saint Jude Hospital and cure every child there that have cancer. Then I would go to where you are at and heal you. Of course I would stop at every hospital and heal those who have some form of cancer. Women with breast cancer. I would not stop until God stopped me. I can just imagine what so many are going through. But God has a time for all of us. Everything in the order that God purposed it. There is many miracles done everyday by God we just don't get to see them all.

Faith, again I feel I must correct you in what you said, the only reason is to give the Truth and nothing else, here you say,
"When OUR spirit can be witnessed to by GOD'S SPIRIT, then we are children of God (and only then, Romans 8:16"
That is not what the passage says, it says,
"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God"
We don't become children of God when the Holy Spirit bears witness to our spirit, it already happen but the Holy Spirit is bearing witness to your spirit now so that you know you are already a child of God.
You don't become one then and only then as you say.
---Mark_V. on 1/17/14|
Wow! I am so happy! Like a child, it' so exciting,read or hear what God is doing or you want Him to do.thankyou,all. Great replies!
Will give chance to all CNT later,let you in on mine.
Smiles! Love of Jesus!

The most important part of devotion is a PERSONAL relationship with Jesus and His Father the same as you have with FAMILY.
The creator is your heavenly DAD/FATHER (Abba Father, not "master" but dear FATHER...the "spirit of sonship") and Jesus His son is your brother.
In Titus 1:8 (the RSV is most explanatory), we are told that we must be a "lover of goodness". If we can do that, then we can be a master of ourself (READ the verse).
When OUR spirit can be witnessed to by GOD'S SPIRIT, then we are children of God (and only then, Romans 8:16, if you read any other version than the RSV, you probably won't get the same understanding as what you would get from the RSV).

Hello Lidia. My goal in life is to represent in life the fullness of the Father's intent and purpose for His chosen.
