What Are We Pursuing?

Spiritual Warfare is real; defend yourself accordingly

Good Saturday Morning friends! I did it! Two Saturday’s in a row I am writing in my blog. I really want to get back to writing more but baby steps ya know? I hope and pray everyone had a good week and is able to take a couple of days of down time and relax.

This week coming up is going to be a big one for yours truly; more to come on that. 🙂

Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and you will delight in the richest of fare.
– Isaiah 55:1-2

What are you pursuing?

As I was reading my morning devotional, I knew that I had to write about this passage. Today, more than ever, we need to be focused on what is truly important. For so long, we have been focused on things such as money, careers, “the hustle”, and yes even the nasty cuss word right now politics. All the while we have pretty much put God on the shelf.

Oh yes we will do our morning devotionals, go to church, heck we might even fill our social media posts with timely and feel good messages. But are we pursuing Him? What are we pursuing in His place? Do we have any wonder why we always feel frustrated with our lives?

Today I am here to tell you that God wants us to pursue Him full-time! Not just for a few minutes every morning, but in all times and in all circumstances. As the above passage shows us, why spend all of our pursuit on things that only provide temporary strength? Why spend our money on things that will bring us no joy (or only temporary joy). Pursue the things of God and He will provide “the finest food” and all for FREE. (At least for us- It was not free for Jesus)

One final example, for all you gym rats out there? How much time did you put in to making your body healthier and looking better? (Not that there is anything wrong with exercise and eating right-save the hate mail). Now, how much time did you put into making your relationship with God healthier and stronger? I think for all of us the answer is that we spent more time on situation one. And yet we still wonder why we stay frustrated and never satisfied……Making sense?

Friends, I’m not saying to stay in your prayer closet 24/7 and not live your life (although these days that isn’t such a bad idea). We still have to work, exercise, and do the things God has called us to do, but we can still do all those things for HIM. We can make sure that we are not in it for OURSELVES but for HIM. You know who else was all about themselves? Lucifer; and we all see how that turned out….

Start today pursuing our first real love; Jesus Christ. Give Him your all and so all things through Him. Amen? I pray you have a blessed day and please, leave your thoughts and comments below. I would love to hear from you! Also, if your a Twitter peep; follow me at @Gods_Warrior91.

In His Glory,

The Deception the World Craves

Deceived

Hello everyone….

I welcome you to a world that needs its eyes opened; a world that has so much waiting for it but desires not to have it; a world that wants to be deceived….

Joshua 1:8– “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

I have come to a conclusion about the world today and it is not good. I used to think that people ultimately were craving to be good people and desired to be something bigger than themselves. I was wrong…..

People now are BEGGING to be deceived! They love to live against all of God’s plan and look for any way they can to avoid the Truth. So many “self-help” guru’s out there with the greatest of plans on how you can be successful and live a prosperous life but avoid the true way to do it. You think because you make 100k a year and have a beach house you are successful? Wrong, you have been deceived…And you love every minute of it.

I say deceived because if you truly knew what greatness was in store for you by giving yourself to Christ, you would run as far as you could from the things of this world, yet instead you cling onto these things like a baby does its mama. You try new skills; you cling on to your money and your ways, you pick and choose who you love, you hoard your earthly riches as if you could take them with you into eternity..oh you deceitful craving generation…

As I type this today I pray that your eyes would be opened; that God would do whatever is necessary to wake you up from the slumber of deception that you so crave every day. Right now the Enemy has you in chains, are you enjoying the slavery? Do you want true success and freedom? Give yourself to the Light, throw away the things of this world or suffer the result of your sinful cravings of deception.

As always the choice is yours.. chose wisely…your time is almost up….

Have You Been Crucified?

Galatians 5:24-“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

Galations 5 24

Hello everyone; I hope your weekend is going magical! As I get closer to my Disney World vacation in October, you will slowly see many references to said mouse. Hope they don’t get too annoying but Mickey is a pretty big deal to the Fischer Family. 🙂

So, about my question, have you been crucified? Its really an important question because without it, you are 10 steps behind where you need to be; or should I say where you could be…See the Bible could not be more clear about our relationship with Christ and what is required. We do have to be careful because we still live in a sin filled world and will continue to sin in ways we don’t even realize until the resurrection. However in this case, intent means almost as much as the action itself.

Clearly God does not want us nailed to a Cross like Jesus did; that would negate the need for Jesus as then we could take care of our own sin problem. He does however want us to nail our passions and desires there instead. For example; how many times a day do you say, “I want this” or “my passion for life is this”. I do it, you do it, we all do it, but that is because we haven’t fully given ourselves to Him. Still clinging on to Lucifer’s realm with that last tiny bit of hope that we can stay in control. That way we can put Jesus on the shelf for the big things while still controlling our destiny. WRONG; its not the way it works folks.

I blame in part the Church; we preach this message of “I can do anything through Christ Jesus” which is very true but NOT from OUR passions and OUR desires but HIS! See, you can’t put the cart before the horse here; to achieve all that we are meant to achieve, our flesh (OUR passions and desires) must be crucified and then replaced with those of our Lord. THEN through Christ Jesus we can do all things. See the difference?

Makes me so mad when I hear this preached wrong for it is another form of bondage that most Christians can never escape from. Always wondering why they can never achieve what is “on their heart to do”. Why things never work out the way they want them to; this folks is why. You MUST crucify the flesh and all that it wants!

Friends, it comes in steps. So today I ask you, what is one passion or want that you can give to Lord to put on the Cross? Just one simple thing for God, can you do that? I assure you, He will replace that with something more fulfilling than anything you could have imagined……Have a great Saturday peeps!

There Is Still Time

✝️The Rebellion✝️

Joel 2:12 -“That is why the LORD says,”Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning.”

During this Catholic holiday of Lent, I wonder how many have actually given their hearts to the Lord Jesus? First things first friends..

Blessings,

David
