Posts Tagged ‘a house divided’

It’s been three weeks since my last post. I usually try to do these Discovering Jesus posts every week or two, but life happens and here it is three weeks later.

Week one: I came down with a cold that completely drained me. I didn’t want to post, work on my single mom ministry or anything else. I just felt like I couldn’t do anything. These times can be really difficult. I didn’t want to pray or do my Bible study. I didn’t have the energy for it. I forgot that I can do nothing in my own strength.

Week two: My cold was better, but I still felt drained. I still did not want to do much as far as my blog or single mom ministry. I began to think that it was God’s way of slowing me down to give me “HIS” vision for this ministry. It was in NOT blogging and in NOT working on the ministry that God could tell me what HIS vision was.

Week three: I feel my energy coming back! I am working on a life coaching model to work on the physical areas of life in order for the single mom to create a peace filled, joyful and safe life for herself and her children. I want this to go hand in hand with my discipleship program. I have changed one aspect of the ministry and am ready to launch! It is coming together and I am excited about it! YAY! Thank you Jesus!!!

Matthew 12:25

25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.

This is where we are as a nation. We are divided in so many ways. Satan has divided us and he laughs at our foolishness. Even Christians are being revealed to be foolish. We are turning on each other and this nation is suffering for it.

PRAY AND REPENT!!!!!

There are so many people afraid of this President and his administration. There are so many that are afraid of President Trump and his administration. We have become distracted. These men and their cabinets are not the ones to fear. They can not harm us. We are not fighting against them, but against the devil. Equally, these men are NOT our saviors. We have ONE savior and HIS name is JESUS! He is the only one who can save this nation.

Do not worry about tomorrow. God is in control. Whatever happens, God still sits on the throne and HE is in control. He has already won the battle. Satan was defeated along time ago. We already have the victory through Jesus!

1 Corinthians 1:10

10 I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.

The Church of America is divided. We have separated ourselves into our man-made denominations and pick which parts of scripture we feel fits our personal doctrines. We find denominations competing against each other and fighting over which one is “right.” Inside the local church, we find cliques being formed based on social status or demographics. Unfortunately, there is always the group of “undesirables” that get left out. In my experience, it has been those “undesirables” that have the closest relationship with God. We bicker, argue and judge to the point of driving people away. Many people are now saying that non-Christians are more accepting and loving than Christians. Non-Christians stand back and watch us fight among ourselves and they are glad that they are on the outside. A house divided can not stand.

Mark 3:25

If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

We SHOULD be united in the scriptures. We SHOULD be united in obedience to the Holy Spirit. We SHOULD be united in Jesus Christ. We serve ONE God and ONE resurrected Savior. There is only ONE Bible. We should NOT be divided. We SHOULD be united as Sisters and Brothers in Christ. We SHOULD be loving each other. We SHOULD be supporting each other. We need to stop the fighting and come together as the family of Christ. We ARE family! We have been adopted as children of God (Ephesians 1:5, Romans 8:14-17). We need to become that united Body of Christ that stands together in mind and thought. Let us glorify our God by taking a unified stand against Satan and those who are sitting back and waiting for the Church of America to implode. Jesus sacrificed His life for US. Don’t we owe it to Him to get our acts together and present a unified front?
