Impossible? No way!

Christ has modeled for us that the impossible is possible. Say not to yourself that no one is perfect. There are perfect people in this world living and breathing today. Perfection does not mean the complete absence of sin or error. Perfection means one has sinned, confessed their errors…turned away from them and is not practicing these sins any longer. It may seem impossible to yield up that cherished sin. However, with Christ all things are possible. The enemy would have us believe that perfection can never be attained if we hold to the erroneous definition that perfection means that no one has ever sinned or erred in one’s lifetime. Let no man ever believe himself to be so holy that there is not room for improvement. We are fallen, and we can always attain new heights. We can certainly master this if we totally lean upon Jesus. Allow Him to take care of your circumstances and your sins. He will cleanse you and in that moment you have become  perfect, fit for His kingdom Allow His purification process to embolden you, to dare, you , to challenge you to constantly seek Him.
God is all powerful. He called creation into existence with His own mouth,
He separated the Red Sea for the children of Israel.
He fed manna to them in the desert. (We must go through a desert to reach our promised land)
He provided for Elijah when Jezebel sought to kill him.
He saved the Ethiopian eunuch…..
He translated Moses and Enoch….They were considered perfect because they walked with God. Moses saw death and experienced resurrection because he loved God, and repented of his acts. The Lord told him he would not see Canaan because of His sin. But you know what? Moses saw Heaven instead.
Today, God is BLOCKING you from things you believe may be good for you and telling you NO. This is a good no. He has so much better for you. Just trust Him. Would you trust someone you don’t know?
Get to know Him by speaking to Him, listening to Him, and reading His Word.

He isn’t like man, sick and twisted enjoying our suffering. He makes provision for us to overcome.

Real men...and women!

I don't usually attend Wednesday night prayer meeting, but I really wanted to go. I don't know, it was an overwhelming feeling of  "GET UP AND GO". So I attended and I am not sorry that I did. I met  a young woman yesterday, from prostituting to the pews.....she said her live in boyfriend led her to Christ. When he got out of jail, she said "we can't live like this. We need to do things the right way." His response..."What have I created?" God knows who is ready for a change. A lot of people look for perfection according to their short list. Love means you know what's going on in the person's life, and while you are not calling yourself a savior, you do things to lead that person to Calvary.
Men, you are called to be leaders; priests. A priest officiates over a congregation...his family. Many Christian men don't understand this concept. They will jump up and fly off to church meetings at the drop of a hat and will not fulfill their priestly duties at home. They believe that by doing the works of God in the church, they are following Christ first. They are so far off the mark. Church duty takes a back seat to family The man, the make...the husband (the bander of the house) is to literally bind the home together through his fervent prayers, his self sacrifice and his approaching the Father to petition His throne as Christ interceded for us. The term husband comes from this concept of house banding. The male went out all day to hunt and work, leaving the wife and children susceptible to danger. A literal fence, high ansd strong in structure was erected as a means of protection in the husband's absence. This bound the house in and kept evil out; hence husband. Christ modelled the behavior a man should have by modelling the character traits in His life here on earth. Women can only be in Godly submission as the husband is under submission to God.

I strongly urge ANYONE who is looking to get married or remarried or engaged, etc to purchase a copy of this item. I read it and was truly blessed beyond understanding. We often ask the Lord to send us things, but get blinded by the packaging, or think it's not of God because it didn't come to us in the way we imagined it would. Do not let this blessing pass you by.;tag=sdfl00-20
