Have you ever been haughty? Well i have on many occasions! Sometimes when our eyes have been opened to the truth we get overwhelmed with new knowledge! Knowledge that many do not know and with this new knowledge comes a bit of power! Not the power your thinking of. The power is that of righteousness. The Father and Yahusha have seen your willingness to give up everything to join them in their righteousness! They grant you the power to overcome wickedness!
They don’t make you perfect like you would like to be and don’t get me wrong, Yahusha said we could be perfect because the Father could do all things! If i said it was impossible i would be putting limitations on the Father! One day we’ll be perfect, of that i’m sure!
But he makes us better than those who live in sin! Does it mean i can lord it over you! No in fact like the scripture says, if we do He will make sure He cuts you down to size! I know this well, He did it to me and it humbled me. I’m not saying sometimes i might forget my lesson but to be truthful i don’t think i ever will. Some of you out there may have noticed i deleted many of the blogs i wrote! I felt they were not from the Holy Spirit but from me. So i deleted them and now i do His will and not my own!
I pray that you share this with others or write your own blogs to remind each other never get haughty, because the Father has a way of bringing us back to earth and believe me, I love the Father but His lessons can be severe. Just remember He can be harsh on us but its out of love for us. He does not want us to die. So never think we are better than others but remember we have been chosen to spread His Gospel, Not our Own!
Always remember Moses for his indiscretions, he never saw the promised land! He was a great and righteous man very God fearing and loved the Father, even he was the Fathers friend! We also can be friends with Him! I know i have! He has become my only ambition and i let His will be done in my life and i pray His will be done in yours also!
This thing that happened to me has brought me more closer than i ever have been to my Father and to my King, Yahusha!! Sometimes you have to go through hell to realize your already living in heaven. The Father has given me a home, food, clothing, and eternal life in heaven with Him! That is more than some others have! If you have this then by all means He has given that which He promised he would! Remember to, that you are to share with others who have less than you do!
So be grateful never complain about what you don’t have!
Always pray for others don’t lord it over their heads that you are better off than they are! Yes we are better off but lets try our best to bring them to salvation, not belittle them.
Remember we too were like them! Some of us don’t deserve life at all but because our King Yahshua laid down His life and spilt His precious blood for us, He freed us from the bonds of sin! All we have to do is go before Him, get on our knees and confess our sins to Him go and sin no more! Put Him on the pedestal where He belongs!
Praise be to the Father! He is a just and merciful God!
