Greetings, Grace & Glory King’s Kids, πŸ‘ΈπŸ½πŸ€΄πŸ½πŸ‘ΈπŸΌπŸ€΄πŸΌπŸ€΄πŸΎπŸ‘ΈπŸΎ

Happy New Year πŸŽ‰, Black History MonthπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦, and soon to be LπŸ’—Ve Day (3 of my fav’s). I’m learning that no matter what season you may find yourself in there is always a reaSON to rejoice! The Apostle Paul in the bible said it like this; I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. For I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. And I find that the strength of Christ’s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Philippians 4:12-13 TPT).

Beginning around the holiday season in November continuing throughout the winter months many people suffer with episodes/bouts of depression. According to the ADAA 40 million adults in the US alone suffer from some form of anxiety disorder. Which although saddening it wasn’t very surprising seeing as how we live in the age and culture of moving fast….can’t be last type mentality. But what i’ve come to find out my friend is that there is a higher way. Praise God (LoL Literally) !!! πŸ™ŒπŸ½

Disclaimer Alert ⚠️ There is no biblical escape clause that grants us a free pass against suffering. In fact there are many scripture that confirm that as a believer (or not) we will suffer but there are also scriptures that tell us how to and why we endure suffering. It’s important that we hold on and press into God so that it produces a greater glory/light in us, instead of running away and doing things that take us out of Gods will/desire for us.

After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace (who imparts His blessing and favor), who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you [making you what you ought to be]

1 Peter 5:10 AMP

The best part about suffering with and/or for God is that it’s not without purpose and He brings us out if we let Him lead us. In my last post I mentioned that when we humble ourselves God grants us grace(devine ❀️ influence and power to beπŸ’₯) FYI also in 1 Peter 5 (great read)! In order to grow through suffering vs just continuing to go through we need God to give us a grace and wisdom to overcome. These gifts and many more are given free to us because Jesus payed the price, yet being a disciple does have a cost (obedience to His word, will and way). Nevertheless, IT’S WORTH IT (Fruit&Favor vs Sin & Shame)!!

😍 Mentioning Fruit and Favor I Am so excited because starting this month I will be seeking, studying, and sharing on the Fruits of the Spirit found in Galations 5. The Devine 9 😍❣️{side note}

One of my favorite verses is 2 Chronicles 7:14 it’s one of those everyday any situation type scriptures that I like to keep close. If my people who are called by my name would Humble themselves and Pray, Seek my FACE (not hand), turn from their wicked ways πŸ˜– (repent), then He will hear from heaven and heal the land. God took Israel through the wilderness to humble them and its no different today! God delights in brokeness, us yielding ourselves to Him more and more. Sometimes we can be so focused on what we want we forget to consider what Father wants from us. πŸ˜”

Each day lets endeavor together to turn to God, seek Him whole heartedly, and yield to His guiding. He has given us all that we need in order to have Life and Godliness. Apart from God we merely exist and go through the motions (up, down, in, out). With God we press onward and grow through our journey with the expectation of the Joy on the other side (on earth & in heaven) as we enter into His presence.

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:18 NKJV

Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and BE clothed with humility, for β€œGod resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due timecasting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:5-7 *************************************************************************

Greetings Fellow Kings Kids,

What a Blessing, Privilege, and Honor to be called a Son or Daughter! During my time with the Lord this morning He brought me back to a topic and verse I had planned to write about a while ago but never felt like the time was right. Then I came across a song on YouTube called Humility by one of my favorite worship teams UPPERROOM and it blessed my soul. I will post it at the end so that you can check it out, you won’t be disappointed! The song, a series of conversations, and world events confirmed that this was indeed a relevant NOW word for where we are as a whole!

As I was looking at the title of this post and the scripture above certain words stood out as if they jumped off the page. The first one being IF. When I looked up the definition of IF I found; (introducing a conditional clause) on the condition or supposition that; in the event that. We often quote that scripture if God be for us who could be against us when we find ourselves faced with some form of opposition that’s meant to stop us from going forward BUT what if God is the one opposing us? Let me take a moment to clarify that God is and always will be GOOD, JUST, LOVING, and UNCHANGING! HE IS the only constant in an ever changing world. Nevertheless, there are times when God may resist us when we are unwilling to YIELD to HIS word, will, and way.

There are multiple instances in the bible where we see this. When God gives us an instruction it’ s to our benefit and never to hurt or harm us. His plans for us are GREAT! He knows what we need and how every one will come to pass. In His infinite knowledge (knowing everything) He allows us to experience certain things in order to draw us nearer and see HIM clearer. I’m reminded of the disciple turned apostle Peter who rejected Jesus’s words when He told them He was going to die and be brought back (Matthew 16: 21-28). Jesus responded Get Behind me Satan. At that moment Peter was more concerned with his way than God’s.

There are times in life where God will allow us to experience things that bring us to our knees, cause pain, and even suffering for a greater purpose and to BREAK our will. It’s not that He withholds everything from as some form of punishment, but their is just a certain posture that causes us to receive his desires for us. The bible says to not despise Humble beginnings. These moments of humbling keep us from being lifted up in pride which destroys. Our daily time in prayer and the word with God is a form of us humbling and yielding ourselves to our Father. This posture says to the Father I NEED YOU DAILY TO LEAD ME!

God knows our heart, the “good”, bad, and the ugly. Although we would all love to believe we have “good” hearts the word says our hearts are wicked and deceitful, WHO could know it? This is why We need to come before God Daily to create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit. We’re ALL a mess in our flesh (Fearful, Anxious, Proud, Selfish, Jealous, Ungrateful and Sin-FULL) apart from HIM! Even in all that He still loves us so much that He desires to be with us and has provided a way of escape from ourselves IN HIM! PRAISE THE LORD!!!! IF we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

Oh Give Thanks unto the Lord For He is Good AND His Mercy Endures Forever! During this time/season where we gather in thanksgiving, let’s remind ourselves that we ought to BE THANKFUL to God! In God’s MERCY He doesn’t give us what we really deserve (unfavorable judgment) and in His GRACE & LOVE He gives us what we don’t (FAVOR, Blessings). And in knowing this lets abandon our will and way to His!

Grace Love And Mercy , XOXOXO

NOW God has offered to us the same promise of entering into his realm of resting in confident faith.✞✞ So we must be extremely careful to ensure that we embrace the fullness of that promise and not fail to experience it. Hebrews 4:1 TPT

So we have a little over 3 months left of 2020 and what a year it’s been.!? Praying God’s peace and prosperity to you in a time where fear and famine has been sweeping the land. One day in my quiet time I heard the word PANDEMONIUM, meaning wild and noisy disorder or confusion; uproar. The definition so perfectly described our current world situation. Nevertheless BE encouraged GOD IS faithful and ALL His promises are yes and amen (it is done)!

Have you ever experienced a moment or moments in your life where things where so crazy that it felt like you were in a movie? If you have you know exactly what I mean and if you haven’t… that day is coming. The Bible tells us we will have troubles on earth 🌏 but it also says that it will get better. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ½ Even when better days doesn’t seem true, IT IS! And when it seems that way we have to seek comfort in our Father, His Son, and Spirit.

Remember suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope (Romans 5:3-4). After we suffer a while God establishes, strengthens, and settles us (1 Peter 5:10). IDK about you but the a while part, at times can be wearisome! During those times I search out and remind myself of God’s promises for my life. God already has ALL the answers, we just have to seek them.

It is truly a day to day (moment to moment) process, and the more time we spend with God, meditating on His word, the less complicated it becomes. That place of TRUST and OBEDIENCE is what the scripture above in Hebrews calls the realm of rest. And oh my friend what a beautiful place it is when we take our eyes πŸ‘€ off us and put them on God! It’s not always easy but by Gods grace it’s reachable. This is why the word calls it the good fight of faith.

Unfortunately many times we fail to enter into rest because of fear/doubt, unbelief, and the cares of this life. However, this doesn’t have to be our reality TODAY friend. Jesus died so that we could live a faith-rest life. When we lose our life (aka trust and obey Yahweh) we gain new life but when we hold on to our life we Lose. Whatever we face He ALWAYS is The (ONLY) WAY, LIFE, and TRUTH.
