When People Lie

When people lie, do not listen or accept the lie. Love the person but reject the lie. Do not allow the lie in as truth or half truth. Do not let someone’s fight for justification be supported by you ornyou aid themnin the lie and thus sin. They want to justify or validate their lie to feel more right inside because God made us all really want to be right with Him. They want to run from Him pridefully so these people cover up that linging to be right with God with lies that it is not so bad and is ok, that God will magically forgive without repentence, that there is no God (which everyone knows is foolish), or that it is ok because this other person is worse. This is why the enemy is the father of lies. Truth always leads back to Jesus Christ. Truth always frees and saves and fills the one who rejects lies with peace and joy and that right relationship with God we all crave. So live the person but reject the lie and so doing maintain your own right relationship with God. That requires actice and fervent protection. ❤

Less Affected

The closer I am in relationship with God, the less I am affected by bad things happening. I am not saying that fewer bad things happen… that would be ridiculous to say. In fact, the enemy comes against Christians far more and with a vengeance. What I am saying is that it affects me less when I am closer to God, reading His Truth in the Bible as much as possible, praying, worshipping, just being with consciously. God gives peace and joy and the more time spent with Him and His goodness, the more the fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control) take prominence in my character. This provides security and hope and beautiful assurance that no one can separate me from the love of God ever. Fasting makes this more clear but so does time and spiritual maturity doing the right thing in keeping in the Bible and prayer and fellowship with Christians.❤

How to Draw Close to Yahweh/God Almighty

There is no mystery, a relationship with God is simple, as you would work on any relationship. To foster it you need to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and obey Him. Then you just spend time with Him in prayer and Bible reading. And since we have an innate place in our souls He placed in us when He lovingly created us, it is the most natural and fulfilling relationship of our lives. We can trust Him, unlike other relationships, and He never changes, as perfection does not need to be improved upon. As our relationship with God grows, we naturally want to and start to be more like His character, see things differently, want to share with others, want to serve, want to worship, enjoying prayers, enjoy Bible reading, and we start emulating the Fruit of the Holy Spirit- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control. It is beautiful. God is beautiful! Nothing is moreso.❤❤❤

The Truth

The Truth (the Bible) is the most important thing we have access to, but God, the Person of Truth is the most important Person we have access to. And hands down, a strong relationship with God will give you peace and joy now and during any storm that comes your way and that same relationship will lead you safely into eternity with Him as well. God is loving and good!❤
