The Journey

 The journey following Jesus isn’t easy, smooth, or without trials, but it is a journey worth taking. You see, your eternity is at stake. The definition of eternity is an endless period of time. There is nothing on this earth worth sacrificing your eternity for. No man, woman, drugs, money, alcohol, power, sex or anything, is worth spending eternity in hell over, being tormented day and night, away from Jesus.

 When you ask Jesus to come into your life, it will start a new beginning in your life, a new time for you. You may have to go around some obstacles that are trying to block your walk with Jesus. Satan will use everything he can to stop you from following Jesus. The Lord may have to take some people out of your life that are

too strong for you to leave behind, and are not good for you. They may be a hindrance to your walk with Jesus.

 The Lord took two people out of my life that were too strong for me to leave behind. One at a time He removed them. Each with different circumstances but remove them He did. I had been very close to these two people for many years. We did everything together. God knew I didn’t have the strength to remove them by myself. I did sinful things with them. Things I thought were fun at the time. I didn’t see the harm in how I behaved with and around them. I look back now and see that same behavior that brought me much pleasure, as being shameful ungodly behavior now. I will never go back to that life without Jesus.

 Shortly after they were removed from my life, I began going to church and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and began following Jesus. I am so grateful the Lord didn’t give up on me. Without His love, grace and mercy I would still be in my pit following Satan and not Jesus.  

 Not just eternity is at stake, but the life you have to live on earth is at stake as well. Although as believers, we still must go through difficult circumstances. Jesus gives us what we need to get through them, and we come out better on the other side. But we have to go through. If we need strength, He gives us His. If we need motivation, the Holy Spirit provides it. Whatever we need God will provide it, just ask. God does not expect us to live for Jesus on this earth on our own. The truth is we can’t anyway. The Holy Spirit lives inside us, and is with us all the time. The Lord said, He would never leave us nor forsake us. Our Helper is as close as can be, He dwells within us.  

 God loves you, and wants you to have a great life on this earth. He will bless you when you least expect it. Against all odds, He can open up the windows of Heaven, and pour out blessings, for those who love Him and strive to live their lives like Jesus did.

 Although you may be bruised by what you went through to get to Jesus, you are a survivor. You probably had to give up some things and some people to follow Jesus. You may not have had any people to help you like others do, but you came anyway. You see where you are now. Your haters see where you are now as well. No person can take credit for your journey to Jesus.  Maybe you had to knock down some walls, fell down along the way, but you made the journey to Jesus.

 Through the Holy Spirit who lives inside of every believer, you have received power to prevail over Satan. We were created to have dominion over everything on the earth. God gave us His power to rule on His behalf. We are to keep Satan from causing destruction, chaos, and devastation on the earth. 

 When you realize you have been created to stop Satan and have dominion over him, you shouldn’t be afraid to fight against him. We are to glorify God, and we cannot do that if we let Satan have his way. So we were created to have dominion in the earth and rule over Satan. 

 You are not a victim, you are not a loser, and you are not defeated. You are a power-walking child of the Most High God! You have authority over Satan. So fight against Satan and his demons.

 If you haven’t made the journey to Jesus, ask Him to come into your heart, to forgive you of your sins. Turn your life over to Him, and surrender your will for His.

 The Lord put this on my heart, from Him to you. Tell My children, you are not alone, I am with you. You are not in this by yourself. I know your deepest secrets, even the bad ones. I see inside of you, your cracks and bruises, your scars, your wounds that you try to hide. You put up walls around your heart, as you try to hide behind them. You are trying to make everyone see you as strong, and tough. You don’t want them to know just how much you hurt on the inside. But I know. I know exactly how you feel in your heart. I know all about your pain, disappointments, and losses. Come to Me, and I will heal your body and soul. I will heal you on the inside. Come to Me, and I will give you love, peace, and joy, through the Holy Spirit. Come to Me and I will give you forgiveness of sins, and eternal life, through Jesus Christ.

 God Bless. Heal the broken-hearted, bind up all their wounds.
