And Just Like That… The Lord Said… It is enough.
This Book… Ephesians 4 was brought to my attention this morning by a newly added friend on a social media platform. I accepted this friend request, and within a few moments the individual send me a PM with jovial Greetings and Blessings for the upcoming week. And then He Said, “Ephesians 4:1-7, God gave that to me for you”.
Immediately, I went to read this book in the Bible to hear this message from the Lord … and instantly I was pulled into His arms, being lavishly sought by my Saviour, my King.
As some of you know…
Recently, I have been wrought to share the truths and speak about Rights for the American People… It has brought me much anguish and spiritual struggle as I want to stay loving; but due to the hate people seethe when they don’t agree with you, it’s been difficult.
But I know the Lord said to me, move WITH me THROUGH this event and I will teach you to share the Good News of the Lord while we share the truths I have shown you so that the Blind can see. Learning now that He was looking for me to riddle parodies of Christ’s way for the lost and broken rather than shed light on the world’s issues, I fell astray. But as every Shepherd goes to find the one lost lamb, He pulled me back to the flock, filled my belly and gave me rest.
It is not the truth of the world that God is most interested in but the truth that frees men. The ways of God are not our own, but in the tragedies we face on Earth, we can find Hope in the Spirit. Because we have been plucked from it’s grasp, we are found in His light and come to a new place of understanding which is what gives us the Freedom we can walk in virtuously.
1. Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord , implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, 2. with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, 3. being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; 5. one Lord , one faith, one baptism, 6. one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. 7. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
Praise God for His messengers! PRAISE God for His leadership and Direction! He is ALWAYS tending His flock.
Steven Scheffler, my Father and Teacher in Christ, shared with me a wonderful lesson years ago that I have applied ever since I come upon the realization of how it works. The question was how do we know whether or not we have heard from the Lord truly when we hear a word or have an epiphany. He said, “Corrie, the Lord’s message will always come with the signature of Love. Never malice, or constraints. Never condemnation or rebuke, but in Love.”
I apply this to every word I hear now and it has rang true every second of every day since. The Lord brought me Ephesians today to make me aware that I should not allow this voice and heart to be hardened by the ways of this world. But I remember my Birthright in Him! That I follow His lead and bring all messages in Peace and Love just as he has done for me.
31. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
So, my soapbox will be retired for now while I center myself in a better found understanding of this message that Christ has deemed me to share. But in Love and Rest I will prosper for He is always calling back to respite care. But not to forsake the message I was presented to achieve, but to perfect it through the rejuvenation of my soul in the Word and the Revitalization of the Hope in my song. It is not by ourselves, but by Christ that we Live! May He be our refuge in times of war. May He be our Holding Place.
Praise God for His Disciples who have come to teach me in Love and Grace. I am so grateful for having accepted this friend request today. I am blessed by the Lord’s message. Thank You Jesus for loving me so much!
