God unites. His enemies divide. “United we stand!” Is truth. As is “Divided we fall”. The enemy, the evil forces of this world, all evil is united in its front to divide all of us. Evil wants division so all countries and their people are destroyed and they can rule. But I have a secret. God is still in charge. And if God’s sleeping children wake up and start praying and return to God, the division will not be successful and God will heal this land. God restores and unites. God heals and loves. We should be tired of playing into the hand of the destructive forces around us who around much weaker and damaging than we ever realized. God is all powerful and love, the Creator who builds. His side is the aide to rally toward. Truth and love need promotion on every level. We are called to that. It is a command. Proclaim truth and show live everywhere we go. We must do this today, right now. Pray. Our unity depends upon it. Truth and love must be promoted to yield hope. God will do it if we humbly pray. We must.
“Two wrongs don’t make a right” has rung in my ears and has committed to knowledge at a young age. There is wrong and right. “Bad” people are just those who decided to commit a wrong, an offence that has reprocussions. The one attacked in some way is the victim. And vengeance belongs to the Lord, who will repay an unrepentant act some day and eternally. That is the idea. For the victim to repay now does not make the crime right or atoned for. That being said, my dad was a Marine and when my sister’s boyfriend beat her, he whooped him then called the police. And when I would see kids picked on growing up and then later, I always stepped in to see justice was done. There is something within some or maybe many of us that wants wrong to be punished and right to be the norm. And I attribute this to our makeup, having all been created by God, the Holy One, the good One. We all know right from wrong attributed something in us says, “That is wrong” or “That is right”. Those who choose to do wrong will be punished by God someday, even if they get away with it now. So it is in His hands. And as I have grown closer to Him, I bow humbly to His direction and control. I want to let Him do what He will. I wish for God’s will to be done. I believe that is what Jesus meant by “turn the other cheek”. To stop someone doing wrong in their tracks to minimize damage but then let God deal with their fate and not us pursue further harm. God cannot change their heart back if they are dead. Then it is too late. So stopping them and then allowing law enforcement to do their job allows a chance for contemplation and hopefully repentence. This made sense to me after years of working this out. So I wanted to share my findings for those who have also pondered this. Attitude of the heart is really the heart of the matter, pun intended. Lol ❤
When bad guys come against you, do not fight their game. You wouldn’t wrestle an alligator, you would shoot it. They are just too good at wrestling and those muscles and jaws are powerful. But if it attacks you relentlessly, you would use an appropriate weapon that you have ready. When evil comes against you, do not fight it with its tools of lies and deceit and manipulation, it is their strengths. You fight with truth, the Bible. Always fight lies with truth. It is the only thing that will defeat it. Fight with the right weapon appropriated you will win. Love you. Hang in there. Jesus is Coming soon. ❤❤❤
My daddy was a boxing instructor in the Marines, so we watched a lot of boxing back in the day. So I love boxing analogies. Lol And in general, the key to never losing a fight is to pick the right fight. Yeah, sometimes people will surprise you and get in a good hit anyway, but you have done your best to minimize damage and be victorious. So in life, we need to conserve our energy and pick the right fight. There are many out there. Many. Any number of fights to be had. And what someone’s outer appearance is or whether they know proper etiquette or what translation of Bible they read (despiteth howest thou likest the perfecteth KJV, becauseth everyone talkest thusly) or what the name is on the church. These things do not matter at all. Not one bit. There are real issues no one is talking about. There is a sin problem, an avoiding church problem, a my kids can beat a video game in 2 days straight but don’t know a Bible verse problem, an abortion problem, and here’s the biggest one of all, a problem of people choosing sin and eternal hell to humble repentance (contrition) and eternal heaven. This is a huge problem. This is a good fight to take on. Because Jesus already won this one for them, they just need truth and prayer to open their hearts and accept it. As a big picture person, I rarely get hung up majoring on the minors, but I am not always fighting what I should be fighting. But way too much attention is being put on inconsequential matters and not enough people are fighting for people’s eternal soul destination. There attention only two options: heaven or hell and I don’t and God doesn’t want anyone to go there because of His great love for us. I love because He loves. Fight that fight. Help them if you can, win their hearts for God who longs for more children to adopt. I don’t want anyone going to hell. I will fight that fight. ❤
If something plagues you, torments you, tempts you, gets the best of you, pervades your thinking, bests you, threatens to defeat you, punishes you unjustly, dampens your spirits, excites your body too much, whatever it is, to this thing/person/idea/voice you may feel free to kick it to the curb. I had to. It needs that. That which is in need of being kicked should rightly be kicked. If you can’t, bring it to me or a trusted friend and I’ll or they’ll do it. Happy to. I have been there. Recently. Kick it. There is the concept in the Bible “If your right hand/eye causes you to sin, cut it off for it is better to lose your hand/eye than for your whole body to be thrown to hell.” Why hang on to that which threatens eternity? Just let it go, like that Frozen song. Let it go. Kick it to the curb. Tell it OUT LOUD to leave in Jesus’ name. If it come back, which it will, tell it again. Keep doing that and read your Bible and pray to God for help. Stay away from it. Don’t entertain that internal terrorist. “We do not negotiate with terrorists” is another valid argument. Cease and decist. I just wanted to encourage anyone who needed it. God loves you and will help as soon as you humbly ask Him to. I will pray for you too. Love you, friend! ❤
I grew up fighting. I fought myself internally because I knew my power from a young age and needed to keep myself controlled. I fought physically because my sister had some anger issues and instability (as an adult diagnosed bipolar) so attacked me regularly and I had to defend myself very often. Also, we grew up my single digit years in a trailer park and there were a mess of people who liked to mess with you and pick fights. For myself, I just defended or avoided but if a bully was picking on someone else, I was instantly in attack mode. And to boot, my daddy was a marine and taught boxing so he taught me how to fight well. And like any boxer, I never have lost a fight. And I am going to share my secret. Prayer and faith. That is it. There were times I did not realize that is what it was and there were times I in my pride took credit for it as if my strength was so great. Ha! What it was is that I live my life in an attitude of prayer and humility. See, I have from birth been gifted by God with the tool of faith. I have unconditional faith in God, unwavering belief that every word He says is absolutely and unquestioning true and I memorized from a young age Philippians 4:13. I took that literally. I still do. And now I realize that God had granted my heart’s prayers to win the fights I saw as justice against bullies because I believed with God, there is winning. And as a bonus gift, God grated me wisdom to know which battles were worth fighting. For instance, my ex’s wife was in the cat when they dropped my son off upon returning him, and she was acting very hostile and picking a fight with me. I was watering the grass and plants at the time. And she wanted to fight me (probably because I had revealed to my ex that she was abusive to my son when he wasn’t there, and she is). And I would have accommodate her had I not been taking care of something far more important in my life, watering the grass. I had no impulse to meet a fight, despite the fact that I exposed the truth and I am never going to lose against a liar because God is on the aide of truth. But I was not drawn by God to the battle field. See, it would have made me look guilty and she was deflecting from her own guilt and trying to draw me in. It is what the liberals are doing to America and our President Trump now. They are not worth the fight or attention either. The thing is, when there is a moral reason for a fight, not a selfish one, but you have a spirit of humble prayer and a heart to stand up for God and what is right, God will accept your faith and fight for you. Let me be clear, this must be in line with God’s will and peace must be pursued first. And how you fight is also important, only stopping the wrong and not angry vengeance or punishment. And there you go: humble prayer and faith and God helps. That is the answer to winning every fight. Willingness to fight for God and His truth and His weaker souls is honored by God. It would be lovely and will be lovely in heaven someday where there is no sin or bullies but until then, we must stand for the right causes for God. Not that He needs us to but that He wants us to be willing to. A contrite heart is always endearing to God and mix faith with that and that is an amazing combination. Because of God and His love for us, it is so. I sure do love Him!! ❤
