Lessons Worth Re-Learning

This is my journey that the LORD Jesus Christ has taken me on in my life. So don't be surprised, this is a Christian site written by a Christian. Most of us have lived our Christian lives such that if we bloomed where we were planted, we'd be mushrooms in a cave! If you would like to subscribe to this blog, please send me an e-mail.

I am just like everyone else: I make it one day at a time with a little bit of humor. The Word of God is a fire in my heart that burns all the way down to my bones and I cannot hold it back. Jeremiah 20:9

GOD takes care of us!

Ok, this is important.  I don't know how many of you go through this, but I am willing to bet that EVERYONE has this problem at some point.  These words from Charles Spurgeon are undoubtedly the most encouraging that I have heard.  This is where satan likes to come in and get me down.  These are the words that have haunted me my entire adult life.  The whole night of the day that I gave my life to Jesus Christ, I heard accusations in my mind.  And I'm not going to give credit to satan by repeating them.  I love to take the lies he has to say and then follow it with the truth and what the LORD says!

We have the entire written word of GOD that refutes satan's accusations against us.  Cover to cover He proves His love for His children.  People who have not given their lives to Christ are the ones who do not have the Holy Spirit of GOD Himself to bring the Word to life for them.  No wonder they don't understand why we get so excited about it!  I am blown away again and again and again by my Savior's love for me! 

Today, I was going to WalMart and AFTER I got to the parking lot, the truck lost all the brakes and the power steering.  It was almost impossible to steer into a parking spot.  Thank GOD that it happened there instead of on the freeway or in the middle of an intersection!  Thank GOD Roger was able to shut down the simulator and borrow our wonderful neighbor in the mall's truck and come to my rescue.  There are so many ways it could have been really bad.

Charles Spurgeon's message reminds us why we can expect GOD's providence and provision.

"Morning and Evening"

"Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."
John 6:37

No limit is set to the duration of this promise.  It does not merely say, "I will not cast out a sinner at his first coming," but, "I will in no wise cast out."  The original reads, "I will not, not cast out," or "I will never, never cast out."  The text means, that Christ will not at first reject a believer; and that as He will not do it at first, so He will not to the last.  But suppose the believer sins after coming?  "If any man sin we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous."  But suppose that believers backslide?  "I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him."  But believers may fall under temptation!  "GOD is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it."  But the believer may fall into sin as David did!  Yes, but He will "Purge them with hyssop, and they shall be clean; He will wash them and they shall be whiter than snow"; "From all their iniquities will I cleanse them."  "Once in Christ, in Christ forever, nothing from His love can sever."  "I give unto my sheep," saith He, "eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand."  What sayest thou to this, O trembling feeble mind?  Is not this a precious mercy, that coming to Christ, thou dost not come to One who will treat thee well for a little while, and then send thee about thy business, but He will receive thee and make thee His bride, and thou shalt be His forever?  Receive no longer the spirit of bondage again to fear, but the spirit of adoption whereby thou shalt cry, Abba, Father! Oh! the grace of these words: "I will in no wise cast out."
