    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we haven't sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 John 1:8 WEBWhe...

    Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, 'I'm going fishing.' They told him, 'We are also coming with you.' They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, the...

    Yahweh said to Gideon, By the three hundred men who lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand; and let all the people go every man to his place. So the people took food in their hand, and their trumpets; and he sent all the men of Israel every man to his tent, but retained th...

The Words of Life

  • Jesus said therefore to the twelve, 'You don't also want to go away, do you?' Simon Peter answered him, 'Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' John 6:67 WEB.

    Peter had come to know Jesus as the source of all knowledge, grace, power, eternal life, and so much more. Jesus is the living, breathing, Son of Almighty God and He has the answer, or IS the answer, to any question that we have today.

    Jesus did not only come to redeem us, but also to give us life everlasting, and a future to live now. He helps us live our lives everyday in the best way possible, to walk in the light today. That is why Paul wrote Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". It is here and now, present tense.

    So many times I have spent hours working on something, only to find that I could have done it much faster if I had known some small detail. When I finally walked away from it for a few minutes and prayed, I suddenly knew the answer. Have you ever struggled with something only to find out the solution was actually very simple?

    It is always what we don't know that holds us back. We don't actually know what we don't know, until someone that does tells us. After you understand the subject and have the insight, then things become simple. Jesus was so full of wisdom that everyone could see it. He had the answers to all of the hard questions, and it was given to Him by the Holy Spirit whenever He needed it. Jesus prayed a lot.

    God said, 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge' (Hosea 4:6). James said, 'If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God who gives generously' (James 1:5). Joshua and the Israelites always inquired of God when making decisions. The one time they did not, they were deceived (Joshua 9:14).

    God is able to give you the answers to the most difficult questions and to reveal the simple path that will take you through the minefield, if you take the time to pray and ask. He knows everything and He has all of the answers. To whom else could we go? He knows what we don't yet know. Always take the time to inquire of the Lord, everyday, here and now.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please guide me, and teach me what I don't know. Help me navigate this life in the best way possible. I need You and I welcome You to be a part of my life today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen.

Like when Hagar wanted to die under the blazing sun but then GOD directed her to a spring of water nearby and the baby Ishmael later sired a nation of Arabs.

One time I had left on bad terms from 2 lawyers after I felt insulted by their offer of salary after I passed bar exam in new state (after passing in 2 states I had previously lived in).  I worked as law clerk at $15 per hour while performing lawyer work but letting them sign their name to my work product.

I didnt want to explain the ugly situation at my separation so I left on resume "May 1999 - present" instead of "May 1999 - Nov 1999".  Before interview, I prayed fervently and waited for answer.  I was told "tell them you don't work there any more.". I actually said "no way.  I cannot do that." So I trusted myself instead of GOD.  I was demonized too I think back then.

Anyway, I embarrassed myself at interview by lying because it turned out it was a set up by one of the 2 lawyers friends.  They continued to "gangstalk" me after that to point I intended to kill the top dog.  Had it all planned out.  Was going to get away with it enough to where I couldn't go to jail but no one would ever mess with me again.  Then out of nowhere unexpectedly I get pulled over for some minor traffic issue (crossing a solid line on street) and my drivers license was suspended because even though a DUI was dropped I didnt have knowledge to file motion to have automatic statutory suspension vacated after the charge was dropped. (Not a criminal lawyer and since out of work so long finances didn't allow hiring attorney with knowledge).  The cop went straight for jacket in back of truck and found boot knife and asked "What's this for?" I quickly said "camping.". He said "I know." Let me go after paying bond of $500.  Gave me back boot knife.  But I knew that was an act of GOD and a warning and I let it go.  This is before born again in 2007.  Then years later I am behind the other of 2 lawyers (the weasel) and realize its him in front, he must've realized it was me, since a guilty conscience needs no accusers, he backed up and turned left and sped away and I watched him bemused (this is post 2007 and born again and now trained and content to not avenge myself and let vengeance belong to the Lord) as he speeds away in a panic.

But yeah GOD intervened many times to protect me in my life. Many times.  I was foreordained and called to be justified and made holy.  But the enemy had been attacking all my life, using his minions.  "The world hates you because I have chosen you out of the world."

I praise you Lord for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Amen.

Alleluia.

Dear Father,  I pray for your continued guidance for there are many things that I either don't know or do not understand.  I pray to you for the answers and to help me be patient for that is a weakness that I have and at times become very frustrated.  Thank you Father for the calm you bring to my soul and for the compassion and love you give me ALWAYS!  In Jesus name I pray, Amen!!
