Blowing Off Steam

No Blowing Off Steam!
STAY IN PEACE!

Maybe you feel you are about to blow up because your have so much stress and tension and craziness around you. It is the season to be JOLLY NOT OBNOXIOUS 🙂 So, blow off steam with the devil and leave people out of it. You cannot shift your blame for your bad mood on your friends, family or fast moving job. You cannot allow the accuser to come in and through you -accuse everyone around you for your mood when you alone have control over your heart and mind. The enemy is the one who steals our peace, kills our relationships and destroys our lives. Don’t accuse someone else when your temper is high sky – time to shift gears and come out of agreement with the torment that keeps you bound by anger, frustration and accusations. Why are you pointing the finger while blowing off steam?

Remember when you are in a bad mood – the enemy is happy and when you are at peace – well, the enemy hates it! So, #BeBraver and be in agreement with God and keep your peace. When you keep YOUR PEACE – YOUR HOUSE WILL BE IN PEACE.

Jesus loves you and HE wants us to be like HIM……..not the one who got thrown out of heaven.

Father, we come in Jesus name and we change our mind and come out of agreement with every attitude that is not pleasing to You. Sometimes we just do not even begin to behave right and though by grace we are saved – it is because of Your grace that we can behave and be kind too. We choose your GRACE and as Pastor Bob Phillips used to say years ago: GRACE IS God’s Righteousness And Corresponding Enabling.

WE thank You for Your righteousness and how You enable us to do the right thing when we feel we cannot in Jesus name. Let it be.

#BeBraver

Remember how, as a little girl, I idolized my sister just to find the enemy’s hatred? Because of hatred, I suffered abuse for a number of years. My mom chose not to protect me, and I felt I had nowhere to turn for safety.  An ugly young child with a strange last name, I was ridiculed by everyone in my class, from 1st grade on up. Though I was an avid reader and a straight A student, I became a tattletale and a teacher’s pet, because I felt like I needed an adult’s approval. I felt rejected at school, as well as at home, and felt like I had no friends. My sisters were all brought up the same way – fear filled. So, what do you do when you feel as if no one likes you, and you feel like you are all alone? How is life when you live on an island in your mind? How to #BeBraver?

I felt like I had no choice but to turn to myself for friendship. On the inside of my heart, I built my own world where I was in control. In my world, I never got hurt. In my heart, I was safe and protected, living inside my dark little cave world where no one could find me. No one could tell me no. No one could tell me I was ugly. No one could tell me I was without worth. No one could reach me expect the enemy.

Deafened by the voices in my head, I couldn’t hear anyone tell me yes either. I couldn’t hear anyone say I was pretty, and I could not hear anyone say I had worth. The result was that I grew into a pretty young woman who, by appearance, looked confident and ready to conquer the world.  Yet I was afraid of my own shadow because I never confronted my fears – I only ignored them. I lived only according to my own wisdom. But because I looked to myself for everything, I truly could “talk the talk,” but my walk never matched up. It was not until I gave my control over to Another that I began to LIVE for the very first time and learn how to #BeBraver.

Where are you in your world? Do you live alone bombarded by the voices in your head or are you free to beCOME all He intends?

Pray with me – Father, I have lived in fear long enough. I give myself over to You for such a time as this and ask You to take this weakness and turn it into my greatest strength in Jesus name. Let it be.

Fear of Man 2 of 2

Fear of Man ©Donna Reiners
Fearing God is wisdom…

Isa 8:13-14 The Lord of hosts–regard Him as holy and honor His holy name [by regarding Him as your only hope of safety], and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread [lest you offend Him by your fear of man and distrust of Him]. And He shall be a sanctuary [a sacred and indestructible asylum to those who reverently fear and trust in Him]; but He shall be a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

The Hope in Fear

God was supposed to be my only hope of safety but instead; my fear became my hope and safety. I was more afraid of my dad than I was of anything or anyone when I was a child. He terrified me right down to the souls of my feet. Why? To be honest, I am not certain why I feared him. He mellowed out when I was born – stopped drinking heavily and quit being so mad all the time. My sisters on the other hand experienced his fits of temper and paid a price for his anger. They saw the side of Daddy, which I can honestly say, I am grateful to have missed. If I had only walked with God, then He could have been my sanctuary instead of my fear of man!

All I knew was fear and self-confidence and self-reliance and independence. I truly needed no one and I made that clear to those around me. Years later of course, I came to know the Only Truth Giver and was able to reach a change of mind regarding all the lies I had believed.Without meeting the Lord, I would have continued living life for myself until I was gray and would still be miserable living in my own sin of the fear of man.

Do you know the Lord my friend? Have you made Him your sanctuary? Your Safe Place? Your Confidence? Have you lived your life with the fear of man? Do you rely solely on your own strength to go through your day-to-day life? If so, would you consider giving yourself over to the Lord and making Him your Refuge? Let God turn your victim days into days of VICTORY!

Pray With Me

I admit that I have let others dictate the way I live my life simply because I have been afraid to defy them. I desire to trust myself and trust You with my decisions. I come out of agreement in letting others control and manipulate me. I have a change of mind this day about how I have responded to other people’s wants. I will, from this point on, seek You first and Your opinion before being so quick to say yes to those around me. Let me no longer be consumed with the fear of man. I love You and need You to direct me and heal me deep in the core of my being. Show me how to honor in the midst of living life with those who have no clue what honor means. In Jesus name Amen.
