Ask to be Free

On the morning of November 22, 2021, I woke up with a ‘knowing’ in my heart that the Lord was waiting with a message. I picked up notepad and pen and waited. He asked me if I was ready, I replied yes, anticipating what He had to say. I take caution with all His Messages, but this subject, especially, is of a very serious and sensitive nature–a hotly debated topic. When He finished speaking, I asked Him to take me right to the scriptures that He had in mind, and thereby confirm the message. I picked up ‘The Passion Translation’, and opened right to them. It was evident that I had heard His Heart.

Within an hour, my phone rang. The caller was a woman that I know, but it was not typical for her to call. I felt led to read her the message, since I know her to be a Christian, and asked if I might run it by her; asking for her take on what the Lord had just spoken. She agreed and listened. She interrupted briefly to say, “This brings tears to my eyes.” Soon the tears became sobs, and then she began choking and gasping for breath.

It is with her permission that I tell you of this. She has held this secret pain in her heart for over 40 years. When she could compose, she related to me that the message was for her. She had an abortion in the late 70’s and has held that dark secret in her heart, all these years, has suffered intensely from it. She feared anyone finding out, for she was already heaped with condemnation, guilt, deep regret and feared rejection; trusting only her husband, her only confidant. She then told me that she had prayed and asked the Lord to somehow give her a message that she was indeed forgiven; because she just couldn’t get past it and couldn’t truly believe that she is. I let her know that she always has been forgiven, but that she was the one that needed to forgive–herself.

In a moment of time, an answer to prayer, the Lord set her free–Glory to God; but she was free all along. It was written there in the Word for her, all those years. You see, a gift can be given, but it must be received. Open the Gift–believe!

The message He spoke is a call to repentance, but it is also a message of forgiveness and hope.

That is Jesus. He is our Hope, our Forgiveness. Without sin there is no need for Forgiveness, no need of a Savior. Can anyone then say that they don’t need Him?

“–since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

I have heard many speculate about what they think that Jesus wrote on the ground, when the men accused the woman of adultery and they brought her forth intending to stone. I have heard teachers of the Word say that Jesus was praying, waiting on God for how He should respond, etc. The Word doesn’t state it and I have never heard anyone say this, but I believe He was writing their sins in the dirt. One by one, they dropped their rocks and walked away until none were left but the woman accused. “Let him who is without sin among you, be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7b Read the full account in John 8:3-11.

They wanted to stone the woman in adultery, but the act takes two, doesn’t it?

In the absence of any of her accusers, Jesus forgave the woman; but He told her to go and sin no more. My heart and hope is that there never be another abortion. That no one ever again declare an excuse to murder an innocent baby; but the Love of the Father tenderly cares for all those who have made this tragic mistake. He Loves you so much that He handed over His very own Son to be crucified in your place. “BABY for baby–I AM!” (see message below)

The Father doesn’t ‘rate’ sins–all must be paid for, by the Blood of the sinless Lamb–Jesus! He didn’t come to condemn the world, but to save it! (John 3:17) The gift of Forgiveness is ours to receive–repent, confess and believe. (Romans 10:9-11)

His Forgiveness is a Gift, but His Word is so very clear–Go and Sin No More. (John 8:11)

And now the Message,

“Ask to Be Free”

Do you hear the silence? That baby cannot cry–for it was taken–

–taken from his place of protection, taken from his life. His gifts will not be seen. His life will not be spent. A travesty for convenience, and yet they don’t repent.

They fear the unknown–fear what they can’t see. . .

But, what they don’t fear is Me.

Each one of you–that has taken a life–was given a life.

Don’t you see?

There is no life granted, apart from Me.

“The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything.” Acts 17:24-25

It is by My Mercy, that you live–live to enjoy the life you’ve been given–

Apart from Me–you will never be free.

Repent.

You cannot undo what’s been done–cannot take away the stain; but ask of Me, and I will cover it with My Blood–never to be seen again!

For I paid the price, to make the exchange. Your baby has been granted new life with Me–Forever Free!

I offer you the same.

  • My Love calls you to repent.
  • My Love falls upon you.
  • My Love Forgives!

Eye for an eye; tooth for a tooth–

BABY for baby–I AM!

“And when the season of tolerance came to an end, there was only one possible way for God to give away his righteousness and still be true to both his justice and his mercy–to offer up his own Son. So now, because we stand on the faithfulness of Jesus, God declares us righteous in his eyes!” Romans 3:26 TPT

Repentance is My Gift to thee–Open the Gift and ask Me in–

Ask, to be Free.

“Do the riches of his extraordinary kindness make you take him for granted and despise him? Haven’t you experienced how kind and understanding he has been to you? Don’t mistake his tolerance for acceptance. Do you realize that all the wealth of his extravagant kindness is meant to melt your heart and lead you into repentance? But because of your calloused heart and refusal to change direction, you are piling up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed. For: He will give to each one in return for what he has done.” Romans 2:4-6 TPT

“The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” II Peter 3:9

“He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace which he lavished upon us.” Ephesians 1:5-8

“So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One. For the “law” of the Spirit of life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us from the “law” of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2 TPT

“For God has proved his love by giving us his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. Who then would dare to accuse those whom God has chosen in love to be his? God himself is the judge who has issued his final verdict over them–“Not guilty!”” Romans 8:32-33

“So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. There is no power above us or beneath us–no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!” Romans 8:38-39 TPT

My friend, from the Cross, walk free!

Where You Choose to Dwell

Rest in My Love–it is there for you always–even when you don’t feel it. If you will trust, in these times of uncertainty, you will surely find My Presence; for I AM here.

A cleansing must come to the Body of Christ–My Body.

The impurities of the world would cling to you. Continue to be washed in My Word, dwell in it!

Do you see?

You don’t walk through the Word–you dwell in it.

You walk through the world, but you don’t dwell in it.

Those who get the two mixed up, stumble–

should you stumble, become aware–assess your situation . . .

“He who loves his brother abides in the light, and in it there is no cause for stumbling. But he who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.” I John 2:10-11

Where are you walking, and where do you dwell?

It is a decision you make, for the path that you take.

It is a decision you make, to veer.

You decide!

Come–ABIDE

“–for once you were darkness, but now you are light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord” Ephesians 5:8-10

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17

“And this is love, that we follow his commandments; this is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you follow love. For many deceivers have gone out into the world, men who will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh; such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Look to yourselves, that you may not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward. Any one who goes ahead and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God; he who abides in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son. If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into the house or give him any greeting; for he who greets him shares his wicked work.” II John 6-11

“No one who denies the Son has the Father also. Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he has promised us, eternal life.

“Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance, who exult in thy name all the day, and extol thy righteousness.” Psalms 89:15-16

Cutting Edge or Cutting a Hedge?

Some are following like scissors–you are closed, you are open, closed, then open; but moving forward in this way only cuts ‘your’ path, it is not following Mine.

To follow ‘like scissors,’ it is your hand that controls, your mind that plans, and I AM not in the project.

Shake the scissors off–set them down.

You don’t need to ‘cut’ a path, for that is forging through–it is toil and I AM not in it.

Lay it down–follow Me.

Be ‘open’ to My plan for your life. . .

I will give you a Key, it doesn’t include strife!

Follow Love, for I AM–

follow Me!

“Put off your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:22-24

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17

“The plans of the mind belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble. Every one who is arrogant is an abomination to the Lord, be assured, he will not go unpunished. By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord a man avoids evil. When a man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Proverbs 16:1-7

Faith in a Faithful God

Hello Reader, it’s so good to see you again. I have missed you.

It has been a very different year for me, and I wish I could say that I understand it all, but that would not be true. I live by faith that I will grow more and more in understanding every day.

The Lord is GOOD!

I was working on my next book; the third in the, “His Voice in My Heart” series, when the Lord called a rest. He simply said, “Why don’t you think more toward spring, rather than Christmas?” “Ok, sure.” So, I thought He wanted me to take it at a slower pace and with that in mind, I kept dabbling at it. He has a way of making His point, when we just don’t seem to get it; and His ‘way’ of choice was to pull the anointing–much like turning out the light. I could either sit there in the dark or take the hint. Either way, I will not be writing without Him–not by ability, or by choice!

Understand, this is just not my work!

This “rest” has taken me through some growing pains, but it was when I embraced it all, and said to the Lord, “Seasons change and this will too; don’t let me miss what I am to learn in this!” That was the moment that things began to turn.

Abide!

So as I emerge with an inkling that I will soon be writing that book again, the Lord has given me a testimony to share . . .

Back when I was writing, I was getting a nudge in my heart that I would be needing a new computer. As it seemed to be working fine, except for the keyboard getting a little glitchy and battery showing it’s age; I sort of shelved the nudge for later. Soon after, He stopped my writing. My computer became just a source to connect to work and check on accounts; so all the more I wasn’t looking into replacing it.

One day, I wasn’t even sitting at my computer, but a cup of coffee was; and as I fussed with stuff nearby, somehow I managed to slap that cup of coffee all over the keyboard of my laptop. Rushing it to the laptop hospital, that night, it came to me again about getting a new computer; though the other one was working except for the keyboard. So, I started looking online and the next day, locally, asked to see an open box computer that said “fair condition.” The outside of the box declared scratches and dents, missing cords, pen and paperwork. However, I was in a hurry and didn’t read the statement sticker on the box. I asked to see the computer itself and when the salesman unboxed it, neither of us could find a scratch on it. Being in a hurry, I asked him if it had the cord, and He replied, “Yes.” Not checking to confirm, but trusting what he said, I bought it–big mistake! I got home later and found that it not only didn’t have the pen and paperwork, but no cords; nothing but the computer itself. I took the whole box apart and found that it was just as the sticker stated.

How could I be so irresponsible?

I looked up all the parts that I was missing and found that it would cost close to $250 to replace them. I decided to just take it all back and order a new one the next day. It was disappointing, because I thought I was getting a good deal.

The next morning I was about to go there, first thing, when the Lord spoke to me to look in the box. I obeyed, but reminded the Lord that I had taken everything out of that box, even the little false bottom box that holds the computer up higher in the box, but there was nothing. He must have smiled at that, because when I pulled out that little black box from the bottom, this time it was heavy! There, in that box, were the cord, the pen and the instructions. Everything that the sticker on the box declared missing–all were new, still in wrapping.

I rejoiced!

I was especially glad, because they called to say they couldn’t get the keyboard for my computer and told me to come and get my laptop while they searched for one. They sent me home with a loaner USB keyboard, that I used to transfer all my stuff to a USB storage and then to the new computer. I used the old laptop for two weeks, even loaded Photoshop on it and used it, which is a big file. In two weeks time they called to say they got the keyboard and I took the laptop in for them to replace the keyboard. After a weeks vacation, I called to ask about my computer only to hear that they couldn’t even boot it up. I was shocked. It had been working just fine! He said he would continue to work on it, but said someone must have spilled something on it. I told him “Yeah, I told you that when I took it in.” So I had my new computer and wasn’t in a hurry, but hoped they could fix it as the Photo Shop is now incompatible with the new technology in my computer.

In the meantime, I was enjoying my new computer so much, and was careful not to eat near it. One day however, I just set a bowl of cereal down by it, to move my computer out of the way, and somehow history repeated itself and I slapped that bowl of cereal all over my new computer! Oh no, not again! I called immediately, an hour before they closed, and begged him to open the computer and dry it out right away. The keyboard wasn’t working, the video wouldn’t play and other things were scrambling fast. He agreed and I rushed it to the laptop hospital to share a room right next to my other computer. How could this be happening??

I wanted to stay to hear the verdict, but they wouldn’t let me hang around. I went home with my heart heavy and mind whirling; so very mad at myself for not learning the lesson the first time! Pulling into my driveway, I got out to get the mail. Right then, the Lord spoke, strong, right from my chest. “Your computer is going to be all right.” He said it twice. I expect He wanted to confirm it because I was so upset. It was so clearly His Voice.

Clinging to those words, I waited.

It came to me, that weekend, about what had happened with my other computer. In revelation, I knew that they didn’t open and clean it when I first took it in. In fact, it came to me, that they didn’t open it at all until they went to replace the keyboard. I decided right then to give it to the Lord. As hard as it is to lose a working computer, I felt that I needed to let it go and be thankful for the new one, that He said would be ok.

When the guy called to tell me the computer was working, but the old one still was not, I point-blank, but without emotion, stated that he didn’t open it to dry it out. He said he did and cleaned it too. To which I replied, “Yes, but you didn’t do that when I first took it in, did you?” He admitted that he hadn’t and we both knew that was why it had stopped working. It had ruined the motherboard.

When I went in for my computer, I took him my books and thanked him for saving my computer; explaining that I couldn’t write the next book without it. I got the computer home and found the face recognition wasn’t working. Taking it back in, two guys looked it over. The webcam and camera no longer worked. The whole screen would have to be replaced or get an accessory webcam. I don’t use cam, except for face recognition, and so I took it home; sad that it was no longer perfect, but grateful that it worked! It was a small price to pay. That night though, I prayed and asked the Lord to fix it for me. He can do anything. I repented for not learning my lesson and asked if He would make it perfect again so it wouldn’t remind me every time I used it of how foolish I had been.

The next morning, my laptop worked perfectly–facial recognition and all!

I expect that if I had come down hard on the computer guy for his mistake, that God wouldn’t have fixed my mistake. The best part of this whole story is that when I was pulling into the computer hospital to get my laptop back, I got a call from an ex-prisoner, that the Lord had led me to at a coffee shop; a whole ‘nuther story in itself! He has been reading my books and he called to say he is halfway through the first “His Voice in My Heart” and plans to read it all over again before he moves on to the next. He was so excited and, my friends, this is what it is all about!

I write for him.

I write for HIM!

Are We There Yet?

When you look at a map it looks flat, small, and yet, you know that it covers an area that is large and wide; sometimes mountainous, rugged, curved, straight—

So, is your life!

You can gather destinations from a map–even track the journey, but you cannot see the dynamic complexity of infrastructure that went into building the roads to reach that destination.

So, it is with your life . . .

Your life is not simple but complex, and yet it wasn’t engineered, but ‘built’ by you!

  • YOU determine the destination.
  • YOU carve the roads.
  • YOU decide how to get over the mountains or to bring them low.

The choices you make, vehicle you take, path you walk–create the ‘map’ of your life.

Don’t you think, you should consult an Engineer?

I AM.

“A voice cries:  “In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 40:3-5

“Blessed are the men whose strength is in thee, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. As they go through the valley of Ba’ca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion.” Psalms 34:5-7

“For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it; for his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would hearken to his voice!” Psalms 95:1-7

“I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will not keep with you. Many are the pangs of the wicked; but steadfast love surrounds him who trusts in the Lord. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!” Psalms 32:8-11

A New View

Turn a new page.

Life is complicated, but it doesn’t have to be–turn the page.

If you find, what is in your life isn’t working–turn the page.

If hurts and wounds plague–turn the page.

This may sound redundant, even too easy for complicated matters. Yet, if you realize what it means you would be quick to comply, for “turn the page,” means you are then free!

It means you recognize that you have full control over that which seems to control and you take the upper hand–you give it all to Me–you turn the page.

Your new life is as simple as a decision.

Turn the page–look at Me!

“O sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm hath gotten him victory.” Psalms 98:1

“The Lord upholds all who are falling, and raises up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to thee, and thou givest them their food in due season. Thou openest thy hand, thou satisfiest the desire of every living thing.” Psalms 145:13b-16

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” James 4:7-8

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you.” Luke 10:19

“Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in you that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever and ever. Amen.” Hebrews 13:20-21

A Lifetime of Devotion

It is interesting to me that on this commemorative day, June 19th, a most important day of freedom, my parents chose to renounce their independence–committing their lives to each other.

I am thankful for both!

Thankful, the slaves were finally freed from an atrocity that should never have been. Thankful, that my parents made a commitment that has lasted a lifetime!

I honor both celebrations this day, in much thankfulness to God!

My latest book, “His Voice in My Heart the Journey,” is dedicated to my parents, Tom and Grace Bloxsom. In this dedication, I wrote that they are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary this year. I was mistaken–should have done the math! This year my parents are actually celebrating their 72nd year of commitment and devotion to each other. A rare feat these days! I commend them and give thanks to God for giving them this strong foundation of tenacity and love for each other.

My dad, drew strength from strong, deep roots. His parents, Ottie and Addie Bloxsom (yes those are their real names and not nicknames or shortened) maintained the same devotion and commitment to each other until death. These same roots carried into a lifetime family business.

My brother, along with my cousin’s son are still maintaining Bloxsom Roofing Company; a business my grandfather started with his four sons back in 1925. My dad was just 12 years old when he began his lifetime career in roofing. Two of my brothers, cousins, and a second cousin all committed their life’s work to this company as well. It is a company built on a strong foundation of honesty, integrity, and hard work . . .

In just four years, Bloxsom Roofing, will be 100 years old!

Still going strong. Still based on integrity, honesty and hard work. I honor my grandfather, grandmother, dad and mom, who’ve lived a lifetime of strong values.

I honor my brothers and cousins (male and female) who worked hard, and continue to carry the baton–long after my grandfather, uncles passed and my dad retired.

I honor the Lord, their True Foundation, Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone.

Thank you, Mom and Dad! May you live out the remainder of your life in peace and contentment. May you find joy and blessing in every day!

Happy 72nd Anniversary!

I love you forever


A fellow blogger, Mr. Teague McKamey, author of the blog “A Voice of One,” has recently posted a review of two of my books, “Comfort in the Challenge” and “His Voice in My Heart.” He has been a follower of my blog for several years and one of the rare few that I follow as well. There are many, many good blogs out there, but I rarely follow; simply because I don’t have the time to spare. However, I was intrigued with the multi-faceted talents of Teague McKamey.

What I have learned over the years is that, not only is he a family man, enjoying a wife and two children, but he is a songwriter, singer, and guitar player; a Bible teacher, preacher, poet, and published author. He is active in his church and maintains a blog; displaying a myriad of thought-provoking subjects, contemplation of ideas, thoughts and inspiration. Yet, if that isn’t enough, I just learned through Teague’s review that he is a Social Worker by trade. I expect that I cannot do justice to this man’s inquiring mind, so why don’t you inquire for yourself and get to know him. Click the link below to read the full review, and while you’re there–take a look around!

Daily Bread

Listen

So many do not listen . . .

  • within
  • to others
  • to Me

I AM searching for those who choose to listen–really listen.

Accept who you are and move on to others; for when you accept yourself, you have time for another, and another, and again . . . another.

You are not busy speaking of yourself, to affirm yourself through another. You are, rather, listening to them–affirming them.

I need you to do that–will you listen?

As you take on the active role of a listener, I AM revealing to you their need. Not to expose them, but to reveal the needed seed.

  • Food for the multitudes.
  • Bread for the eater.

For they are hungry–meet the need . . . plant a seed.

You are not required to meet their every need, not even many. Just plant a seed. You will know them, for they will be hungry!

Give them fresh bread.

Meet the need.

“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11

“‘Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will now arise,’ says the Lord; ‘I will place him in the safety for which he longs.’ The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times.” Psalms 12:5-6

“The end of all things is at hand; therefore keep sane and sober for your prayers. Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins. Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another. as each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace; whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:7-11

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature. For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” II Peter 1:3-11

“Do thou, O Lord, protect us, guard us ever from this generation. On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” Psalms 12:7-8

“The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know thy name put their trust in thee, for thou, O Lord, hast not forsaken those who seek thee.” Psalms 9:9-10

 

Having Not a Tare in the World!

When it seems as though there are traps set for you at every turn, remember this: I have allowed the tares to remain with the wheat until the very end.

I will not take those who oppose you out from your midst; but I teach you how to step lightly around the snares the enemy would set for you.

Consider this: It is not always your enemy, but your own emotions that get in the way of progress. If it seems as though you stumble, when you find agitation confronting you–run to peace!

Come and Abide.

Look within and face your feelings–don’t run from them.

You are LOVED–remember that!

Come and dine.

Those traps the enemy has placed for you, you’ll find are rooted in deception. Check for an open door. If you find you have gotten out of love, been complaining, or otherwise not operating in the fruit of the Spirit, turn it around . . .

Turn and look at Me.

All is well!

“Look how the wicked conceive their evil schemes. They go into labor with their lies and give birth to trouble. They dig a pit for others to fall into, not knowing that they will be the very ones who will fall into their own pit of failure. For you, God, will see to it that every pit-digger who works to trap and harm others will be trapped and harmed by his own treachery.  But I will give all my thanks to you, Lord, for you make everything right in the end. I will sing my highest praise to the God of the Highest Place!” Psalms 7:14-17 TPT

“And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ But he said, ‘No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'” Matthew 13:27-30

“–And his disciples came to him, saying, ‘Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.’ He answered, ‘He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.” Matthew 13:36-43

“Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from thy testimonies.” Psalms 119:157

“Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” Psalms 105:4 NIV
