Answered Prayers

God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall he not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good? Numbers 23:19 God is truth, He cannot lie; the Bible is God’s spoken Word placed in written form for us to read Him when we can’t  feel or hear Him. Throughout the Bible God has given us promises and instructions for our life, it’s our choice to discover what He has given us through His written Word. Healing, provisions, protection, comfort and peace are the benefits of the saints. God has promised whatever you desire when you pray, believe you have received it and you shall have it. When we pray according to the Word of God, we should have confidence He heard our prayer and He will answer our prayers. Every Word of God is true whether its blessings or discipline, His Word will not return to Him void.

Callous Heart

Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself and  opened her mouth without measure, and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth shall descend into it – Isaiah 5:13:14 – This took place when Israel was exiled to Assyria and Judah to Babylon, they brought judgement to themselves by turning away from the laws of God. Turning away from God exposes us  to judgment.  Many Christians are turning away from God because of other religion, selfish desires as well as faith-less. God loves everyone, but He doesn’t love neither does He accept our sin. The penalty of sin is both spiritual and natural death. Spiritual death comes when we turn a deaf ear from the instructions of God; we no longer can hear His voice or being sensitive to His Spirit. Natural death comes when we continue in sinful actions that destroy’s the body, mind and the soul. Hell is just as real as Heaven, and the only way we will enter into Heaven is not being conformed to this world, our minds being transformed by the Word of God knowing what is acceptable and the perfect will of God. God is instructing His people to be holy; meaning they have turned away from their desires to God desires, turning away from the actions of the unbeliever, desiring God’s will to be done in and through them, for His glory and for your blessings!

The Heart

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23)  Our heart, our feelings of love and desire dictates to a great extent how we live because we always find time to do what we enjoy. Jesus told His disciples “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”. We should be careful of what we treasure, keeping our hearts clean before God, not allowing worldly things to stain our heart for the things of God. What we place in our hearts will manifest in our character. Out of the heart the mouth speak, and what’s in our heart will manifest in our actions. The Word of God cannot be in our hearts, if we don’t take the time to read His Word and allow the Word of God to cleanse us from the things of the world we may have seen, or heard. Sin is all around, but it doesn’t have to be in us.
