John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

When you are troubled, never move away from God.

here are situations that man cannot help you overcome, rely on God. He is the comforter. Philippians 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.Worry does not provide solutions only deepens it. Worrying will make you loose focus. There is that deep hurt that only you knows. Know that there is another person who knows about it, God. He will give you peace.

While you are under the sun, you will be hurt, you will smile, seek God while time still allows. Open your heart, and allow God to make your home a place of peace.

The Lord refused your enemies from destroying you.

When you are doing good, know that there is somebody always watching and planning your downfall. God always protect us but it does not mean that we will not feel the pain but what was meant to kill you only gives you scars.  Isaiah 7:7 But this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “This invasion will never happen; it will never take place.
Before the devil could attack Job, He asked God to remove the hedge around him. Job 1:10 You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is!

Know that what is happening to you, there is express permission. God trust you to deal with it.1 Samuel 1:6 So Peninnah would taunt Hannah and make fun of her because the LORD had kept her from having children.

To be called means you a threat to satan’s kingdom. You have just declared war.

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” When you are called, know that you have just declared war against the devil’s kingdom. You cannot afford to leave life the way you used to. You must increase your prayer life. When a man’s space is threatened, he finds ways to stop his enemies before they get to him. 

Jeremiah 1:19 They will fight you, but they will fail. For I am with you, and I will take care of you. I, the LORD, have spoken!” The devil will come with all he has to fight the calling even if it means attacking those around you. He will attack those around you so that your focus is on them. God cannot call you and not protect you, it’s only you who can move yourself from Him.
The anointing does not only attract good things even challenges becomes more. When something good is about to be birthed, Satan is aware and will to stop it.

There is a place we are all going where the heart is the key to enter.

1 Chronicles 28:9 “As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.

God won’t stop you from fulfilling your fleshly desires but the consequences that follows are unavoidable.

2 Samuel 11:2 Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold.

David allowed the flesh to influence his decision making and this made God angry. God gave us the ability to make choices but in our choices, we must always remember that we cannot decide on the consequences that follows.2 Samuel 12:10 Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.’

The garden of eden is about boundaries, choices, and responsibility.  If boundaries are not maintained, we will get hurt or hurt those around us. God implemented his first boundary with man and because of the choice that Adam and Eve made, we are born into the sinful nature. Sin became a new normal. Genesis 2:16-17 But the LORD God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden- except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”

God won’t stop you from fulfilling your fleshly desires but the consequences that follows are unavoidable. Deuteronomy 30:19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!

Choose Life!
