Moving the “Just” Out of the Way

Leave a comment

(Rom 15:4) For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that through patience and through comfort of the scriptures we might have hope.

Often times in our lives we’ve heard, the statement made to us; I am “just” going to pray for, or about the problem/situation, leading me to believe that’s all you are going to do, don’t misunderstand me, I know from previous experience in my life that prayer covers and changes all things.  However, what I am going to share with you now,  is that God expects more from us, than “just” praying for the person or their situation.  God wants us, to do more; He wants us to go beyond the call of prayer.

God wants us, to do as the scripture states… (1Pe 3:15) “But sanctify in your hearts Christ as Lord: being ready always to give answer to every man that asketh you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear”:

God wants us, to offer our fellow-man more than “just” prayer.  He wants us to encourage one another, love one another, esteem one another, be kind-hearted and be patient with one another; not referring evil for evil or insult for insult, but give a blessing instead.   As for you and me, we are called for this very purpose that we might inherit a blessing.  Moving the “just” out of our lives may seem hard in the beginning, but if we realize that our God has purpose and a plan for our lives , we can move the “just” out-of-the-way and do what God has for us to do. … (Jer. 29:11) states…“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith Jehovah, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end.”  Therefore having learned all we know through the word of God moving the “just” out of our way, is now just a matter of doing it! MOVE the Just!!! ……

Moving from Victim to Victory

Leave a comment

(Rom 8:37)Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

 

    The songwriter penned the song, “Victory in Jesus” I am reminded of the chorus of the song “O victory in Jesus, my Savior forever He sought me and brought me with His redeeming blood; He loved me, ere I knew Him and call my love is due Him, He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.”

      Today, you and I can have that same victory in Jesus if we would let go and let God have His way in our lives.  Often times we are victim of situation because we don’t trust God to handle our personal problems such as; abuse in marriage, rebellious children, sexual immorality, death of a family member, failures, past life experiences.

We all have fell victim to the enemy (Satan) and his tactics being deceived by his counterfeit ways and actions.  That’s why the word tells us to shun the very presence of evil and beware of those who seek to lead us away from the word of God.   (2Ti 2:15)  Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth.

Jesus Christ told us in the word that we were more than conqueror through Him. He also said that we were not too faint in well-doing, be not anxious for tomorrow for tomorrow  would take care of itself and that we are overcomers through Him.  Christ overcame the cross and death and knowing this makes us more than conquerors.

God’s grace is sufficient for us, Christ’s power is perfected in our weakness, persecution, insults and all difficulties.  We can boast that we are longer victims, held captive by the enemy (Satan) but victorious in Jesus Christ who has set us free…. and when the Son of Man set you free you are free indeed never to go back into bondage again… Yes, we can say we have move from our old house of being a victim to our new house being victorious in Jesus Christ.

Blessings, Lady J

 

Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans March 30, 2012

On March 7, 2011 U.S. Senate passed a resolution declaring March 30, 2012 as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veteran’s Day”.  This day has been recognized by the United States as a day commemorating the Vietnam Veterans and paying proper respect to all who served during the Vietnam War.  The USO of North Carolina and the Charlotte, NC. Motor Speedway with the support of NC Association of Broadcasters will host this event on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at the Speedway Welcoming Home our Vietnam Veterans.

In 1973 the troops in Vietnam were pulled out,  during that time over 9 million military personnel served during the Vietnam war, of that number 58,156 lost their lives while 303,704  wounded in action and possible more are still missing in action .  The Vietnam War was the longest war ever to have been fought.

Upon returning home after the war, the Vietnam Veterans was not welcome home in the most pleasant way after arriving back in the states many of them  faced harsh words and name calling such as; baby killer, murder, child killer and much more horrible things.   Frustrated and upset many of these service men couldn’t understand why they were treated  in such an ill way, because they went to war and served their country well.  I am thankful that the country our men and women served are finally being told “Thank You” it is never to late to say I am sorry, or thank you we salute all of our service men and women who have served and now serving.
