Life of grace.

There are things we do, things that we did not plan to do but we do it because of the weakness that is in us. By the grace, we are still able to find favor in Christ Jesus. Christianity become stressful when we witness this weakness and think we can come out from it on our own will. We try so hard to change and end up condemning ourself. Know that Christ know the your deep thoughts, your intentions when you do things. Hebrews 4:15 This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.

We can only achieve righteousness through Christ. Let us fix our eyes on the cross. Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

Spiritual Realm

The possibilities of things we can achieve when influenced by the spiritual realm is endless. Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.

Elijah stopped the rain

Paul used handkerchiefs and aprons to heal people

Have faith to move a mountain. Everything we see was created in the spiritual real first. Matthew 17:20-21 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”

We must be sensitive to the spiritual realm. Christianity is a heart issue. Our heart is our connection. God put His instructions in our heart, so to move in the spiritual realm, our hearts must be right and be ready to receive. Make time for some quite time and listen to yourself, listen to the small voice within then the opportunities are endless. Don’t allow your mind to limit your capability.

What happened to tithing and offering to the Levites.

The law of Moses required that tithe be given to the Levites and the Levites should tithe to the priest. What was stored in the storerooms was prescribed for the Levites, the singers, and the gatekeepers. Numbers 18:25-27 The LORD also told Moses, “Give these instructions to the Levites: When you receive from the people of Israel the tithes I have assigned as your allotment, give a tenth of the tithes you receive-a tithe of the tithe-to the LORD as a sacred offering. The LORD will consider this offering to be your harvest offering, as though it were the first grain from your own threshing floor or wine from your own winepress.

Nehemiah was away and on his return in Jerusalem, he was angry to find that the Levites we no longer taken care of in the church. Nehemiah 13:10 I also realized that the portions for the Levites had not been given them; for each of the Levites and the singers who did the work had gone back to his field.

Principles, if not followed create strive.

God always establish a principled life for those who are His. At the garden of eden, The issue of the tree of life, is an issue of principles. Genesis 3:4-5 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”

When a principle is violated, strive becomes the order of the day in our mind. Satan came and introduced another thinking that created a strive in the mind of Adam and Eve. The mind had to battle between what God said and what Satan said.

In our homes we have our own principles that we created and your children are brought up in those principles. When they visit another family, they get introduced to another principle and on their return, that new way of doing things begins to create doubt on your way of doing things because they enjoyed how something was done on the other family.

When you are in a relationship, the introduction of a third person means there are new ways of doing things that will create strive in the relationship. Your spouse do things in a certain way and the other person do things in a different way that will make it difficult to for you to focus on what you already know.

There is always a battle in our mind between good and evil. In that situation where you have to decide between what God is saying and what Satan is saying, God does not impose, He allows us to make decisions however there are consequences to our decisions. 1 Corinthians 10:23 You say, “I am allowed to do anything”-but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”-but not everything is beneficial.
