Don't Stray

While at work yesterday I got upset with a couple of my patients who were manipulative and deceiving. I have seen this before and although it speaks to their character, I decided to stay away from them. With the exception of what was required of me. And even then, I fell short and did not even do what was incumbent of myself. Pride put a wall up and within myself I felt as if they did not deserve God's mercy.

I was wrong. The Holy Spirit corrected me with two glaring examples to confirm what He wanted me to realize and to never do again.

The first example was a video that I was watching.  Accordingly, the pastor spoke and said that if you allow your emotions to control you and take you off course, then to "Just sit down!" The assignment that God has for you doesn't stop or change because you are having a bad day. In other words, if we are going to be unstable and double minded, we need to give up completely. Because God's will is going to be done regardless!!!

I received the second confirmation as I read Joshua 7:10. Joshua fell on his face before the LORD and could not understand why they were defeated before the Amalekites.  Nevertheless, God told him to "Get up! Why is it that you have fallen on your face?". It immediately brought to remembrance when the LORD told Moses the same thing almost exactly verbatim in Exodus 4:15, "Why are you crying to me? Tell the Israelites to go forward!".

Don't Be Replaced

God has an assignment. It is not for the weary or the erratic. His call is a call to action. Unrelenting. Resolute. As His people we must be prepared which is why He admonished us to put on the WHOLE armor of God.

I was already convicted before I left work and came to the realization that a nurse was being petty towards me to show me how that looked in myself.

It is something that is much needed for this time in my life. As the LORD and I embark on the greatest venture ever. To show me that there will be days that I feel depressed, downtrodden, and defeated. But as the LORD spoke in my spirit, when we are given an assignment, He gives us an arsenal. Everything that is needed to be successful.  As I say often, It is not about you or me.
The race does not go to the swift but the one who endures to the end. Profound!!!

I will reap the coals that glorify God and that brings about a desired end.

An Addendum

Albeit, as I listened further to the video, I received the fact that when someone or something is grieving me, it is that the Holy Spirit is also grieved.

As I have said before, "God gets tired too"!!! But it is still up to me to handle the matter appropriately. Without judgment. Allowing God's discernment to say, when to move on.

  Don't Profane What is Holy!!! People are committing all sorts of immoral lusts against their bodies. Marrying and in homosexual, bisexual, and polygamous relationships. Truly believing that you can indulge in lasciviousness and see God's face in peace. The worst part is that you are bringing innocent children into the equation. Allowing them to be taunted and scarred by brutal indifference. While exposing them to one of the most demonically, sinister, and perverse entities that walk this earth. A spirit that is so degenerate, it will and has led to bestiality and worse. Now I need you to read or listen to this at least three times. Some may be offended. But because you are leading to the corruption of the innocent. While mocking God when you know that it is wrong. Judgment will be swift and merciless. You have rejected God!!! Did you get that? Because when you sin against your own body. This is a specialized kind of self-hate. Birthed through mental, emotional, psychological,
  Spiritual Warfare is Not a Game!!! This will resonate with those who have a true anointing over their lives. Now more than ever I understand that we truly are in spiritual warfare. God's presence is so powerful that people will tend to remove themselves from your company. Recognize that you need to put on the full armor of God. This can only be attained through intimacy with Him. Meditating in His Word. People say that they want to know God and have a relationship with Him. But can you handle the isolation that comes with this? Malevolent spirits are aware of you, and they will shun you. Or worse. Trust me when I say that even if the person does not know you, the spirit that dwells within them knows when you are of God. You must remain humble as you become more aware of this phenomenon. Because the flesh fights within you every day to be exalted and recognized. Pride is malignant and cancerous. Remember. Spiritual warfare is incarnate and irrefutable.  Cassandra Mack Podcast (spo
  Don't Worry About Nothing!!! Can I tell you that when you are fretful, allowing someone to "trigger" you. You open yourself up to spiritual distress. Unnecessary persecution from the enemy. Frustrating your spiritual balance. Sending you into mental and emotional chaos. You allow the adversary to rule over your thoughts and emotions. The negative effects are compounded by a slow spiritual and mental recovery. Every time you allow this, it is harder to heal, robbing you of the ability to exercise faith in God's Word. You must remember that we are more than conquerors. Stop and see this ambush for what it is. Speak the affirmations of God's Word. This is why Philippians 4:8 admonishes us, "Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God's Word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, i
