As I close my eyes and pray; Dear God, you will speak to my heart and to those who are reading, that I have guidance, through you, that I will leave your word as your presence, as you see fit. Please God, fill my heart and mind with your spirit that will give me guidance. In Jesus name I pray, Amen
Oh Lord, hear my prayer one more time. I am searching for guidance that I may leave the presence of you in the hearts that are weary.
Even though I grew up in Church every Sunday, and became a child of God in my early teens, Bible translation doesn’t come easy for me. With my eyes focused on God and his word from the kjv, I search for answers from God through others like me who also wants to touch the hearts of others.
Without God I am nothing
I've got it!!!!
Thank you God!
This teaching; John 15:2, begins to make it clear how much we need God. Interestingly, what Jesus teaches us in John 15:6 about being the bread of life, the fruit—he is the branch, we are the fruit, which also shows how much we need him and without him we re nothing. He confirms that what our Father desires in our relationship cannot be produced apart from Christ. This passage is a final admonition for us to make every effort to remain "in" Him, to get close to him, and stay close to him.
I do find it harder to live by the word of God when I am "in" him, when I put God first everyday. Why, why do I find myself departing from God throughout the day and even catching myself living "in" the desires of the world? I find the devil words harder when we are close to God because when we are not close to God, the devil already has us. The devil has us right where he wants us.
God is not saying that we can't enjoy living in this world, he is just telling us to not obsess about the "things" this world has to offer. After all God says he is the branch and we are the fruit, abide by his commandments and live by his word and we shall grow abundance of fruit.
This passage hit home a few months back. I felt so alone, I was struggling with obsession of worldly things and God seemed so far away. One day I realized that the devil cannot read my mind, he does not know what I am struggling with, he does not know my heart until I verbally let the him know. I found myself disgruntle with God, not being thankful that I have a roof over my head, food on the table and clothes on my back. I found myself complaining about everything to my family and friends and even to people I barely know. I literally found my self crying almost daily.
Once I realized this, I yelled; out loud, and told the devil to get out of my house, leave my family alone, and get out of our lives. My husband and I started saying a prayer each morning as he is walking out the door to start his day. Through our prayers we do not ask for worldly things but we pray to God and give him praise and a huge THANK YOU for everything. We ask him to not give up on us and give us more than he can handle and we ask him to help us to be examples for him.
Why are we nothing without God?
God tells us it the chapter of John 15 that he is the branch and we are the fruit. Basically, he is our savior and we have a choice to be his children. God promises that when we choose him, our lives will be blessed abundantly and overflowing by his grace and we can live with love every moment.
Dear God, I thank you deeply from the bottom of my heart that you gave me this few minutes to show others what you men to me. I thank you and trust that this message will touch the soul of thousands and will reassure those who already know you that they can reunite with you everyday and every moment of the day. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
