Deuteronomy 2:3, 5:16
I see and hear people all the time, saying; awww I can live this
way and it will be ok, God understands, He will forgive me, or
one an all time reason, I believe in God and I am trying , but I
don't care what people think of me, I do know that some even,
throughout certain people who, trusted God and they still want
to do their own thing, they want to live in sin, fornication,
lies, live around evil people, curse, use people, think of
themselves, etc and honestly think God approves.
This is definitely
the wrong route and the wrong way of thinking. They are so
deceived by the thoughts that the "EVIL MASTER"
puts in their brains that even though they lie, steal, fornicate
and drink to the point they are drunk and they can just do
whatever they please and think that they will get to see Jesus,
and serve Him to on top of the things they do that the devil
want's them to do, or put thoughts in their minds.
You cannot serve two masters,
because when you try everything will be harder and get harder
with more frustrations, more upsets, more disappointments.
We must serve GOD, and desire to
live His ways, not like the heathens.
God's plans for our lives are so much better, He has had plans
for our life even before we were conceived.
Anyone can avoid wrestling with their lives, if they would just
let God handle their lives. Stop having wrestling matches with
Him. Having wisdom to tell us to let God do with us what He
wants, when He wants, and how He wants.
This is so, we don't waste time going through all the hoops
trying to figure out which one is the right hoop for us to get
the answer from.
The Israelites did, they were going in circles. Before I got
closer to God, I found myself going through circles, hoops and
bounds trying to figure out what I am to be doing, and where I
am to be, how I am to be acting. Because I found myself making
the wrong choices in my life, I was always making the wrong
decision and messing up, because I thought I knew what was best
for me, hey it was my life right?
Wrong! That's not the right decision.... My Life was God's Life,
yes, we all make mistakes, we all loose our way somehow or the
other, and we all wrestle with things all through our lives,
trying to do the right things, trying to please everyone, trying
to make sure I do things on our own, taking care of ourselves
without anyone's help.
I had to come to my own grips, because I did make the wrong
decisions and some even almost got me killed, all because I
wanted, was to have a happy life, have some children and awesome
husband and have a happy life, watch my kids grow up and watch
my grandkids grow and spoil them, and live a life that was meant
for me to have.
But, without letting God take control of my life, was the
biggest greatest mistake I could've ever made, because by
leaving Him out I sure have had a hard life, decisions I had to
make to protect my child from getting abused like I was and not
knowing where our next meal was coming from, I had to make that
choice I never wanted to make.
The choices we make, plays an important role in our lives and
without God taking control we are useless, we are nothing
compared to what we become when we let God take control, so we
can stop the wrestling matches we have with our lives, trying to
do the right things and trying to make those touch decisions we
have to make.
But, God did bless me even through all my trials, and all the
mistakes I have made in my life! I have 2 awesome children, even
though one passed when he was 1 1/2 month old I still claim him
being alive, they are a huge part of my world, I have a
wonderful husband, who accepts me for what I am and what I
believe in, we have been together and married now for a little
over 25 yrs. I have nice place to live, nice car, blessed with a
husband that loves to work and loves me. There is so many things
I have been blessed with!
If, we would let God into our hearts, our marriages, our
families, we could stop wrestling with the wrong things in our
lives, I was lost but I was found, God stayed with me even
through my hardest hours, He was there He never left me, He knew
that no matter what I still trusted in Him and believed in Him!
Without God being inside us and with us everywhere we go, we are
dead, we are a dead human being, because without God in our
lives, we will always wrestle in life, He saved me and He
forgave me, for all the times I messed up..... and He will you
I was brought up in church, and knowing Jesus, but as I got
older--- I lost my way and I was going through so many circles
so many hoops in my life, I was wrestling with so many things in
my life, I really shouldn't have wrestling with, if I simply
would've made God the center of my life as I was brought up to
It's not hard to Obey God, it's a matter of hearing and
listening to what God's Word says, and giving our hearts, our
lives, our families, our friends, our children, our mates to
Him. Because always wrestling with your life surely isn't a
roller-coaster ride, it isn't fun, it actually is
There are so many who are wrestling and I Pray in Jesus' Name
that they can find God and their way out of their wrestling
match and give it all to God and so they can stop wrestling with
their lives and what's going on in their lives. In Jesus' Name
There is so much, God wants to bless us with, only if we will
listen. Ever since I started listening and letting God have it
all, He has helped me along my way, He has blessed me, I count
on Him and I trust in Him. God will not let us stay and be
stagnant, and become lost--- give it to God, and He will bring
you back and to new areas and places in your life!
He wants us to be fresh, willing and able, full of life, joy,
and grown and always full of purpose! Always Love Him, your
Parents, and other's and all will go well in your life!
