Happy New Beginnings with God, in 2018 and beyond, Everyone. No matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, it's not too late to grow more in Him and without compromise. There is a seed of Righteousness that has been planted within you, a seed that is incorruptible, a seed that cannot be crushed, for it is a seed that has been planted by All Mighty God. You have all that you will ever need to grow strong(er) in the Lord and in the power of HIS Might to remain strong in Him and to remain steadfast, strong in the faith and to not compromise yourself to the evils of this world. (Refer to Colossians 1:23) Below is a message that I shared in 2011. All by the grace of God who lives inside of me...who lives inside of us because of Jesus. Be blessed, Everyone...Happy New Year. Happy New Beginnings with Jesus who is God, Forever. Shimmie Jesus God's Seed Within Us Matthew 4 (Jesus' parable about the Seeds). The seed within us is in solid ground, our bellies filled with living waters. The 'Seed' (Seed of Righteousness -- The Word of God) is in each of us who are with Jesus Christ. The problems we have with our loved ones (family members, friends, etc.) bosses, co-workers... and any situation (challenge) which occurs in our lives is not about 'them', it's about the 'Seed' within us, that satan is after. He's out to 'steal' the Word from within us. his goal is to turn us away from God. It's the same strategy he used against Job, yet Job did not turn his heart away from God. Once we 'get' this, we realize that it's not about what our loved ones are doing or not doing, or what the situation is, instead, satan is simply trying to dig that seed from out of us. Who better for satan to use than a loved one or situation that matters to us, to use as a weapon, his vehicle to get to that seed within our bellies, where we give life. he tries hard Yet, he cannot. The Word of God is so deeply planted within us, that he cannot get to the seed. As soon as we realize this and grasp it, the attack loses it's power and affect against us. It's over and we will begin to see changes in our loved ones and in the situations. The 'attack's become less effective. It stops. One of the things that satan loves to do, is to use these situations to stop us from praying. Have you ever noticed when 'we' become angry / frustrrated / fed up with a loved one or a situation, we 'stop' praying for them or the situation, for that moment? This is what satan wants us to do, as it gives him access to more of his launches of attack; however when we pray, we are 'blocking' his access; he can't get in and he is rendered powerless. he gets banned. So, in us we have the 'Seed', an incorruptable seed that cannot be taken away and this is what satan wants to steal, but he cannot, for it is not his, it's God's Word, within us. When challenges come, that's all it is, a challenge. satan is not getting our seed. Unto God be ALL the Glory...Always. Always. Always.
