Alarms are ringing throughout the world.
It is easy to listen to all the bad reports and become anxious or fearful. Sometimes I find myself saying things like:
I just can’t….
- help consuming ….
- help believing
- listen to …
- break free from….
- get enough energy to…
- forgive …
- trust and obey
- believe others are doing this instead of ______________.
When our hearts are overwhelmed, Let us ask ourself, “Is anything too hard for God?” I felt the Lord say,
“You can’t do anything without me that is eternal life.”
God’s Peace, Love, Forgiveness, Mercy, Grace and Salvation are all eternal things. Let go of the worldly and temporary confusion, condemnation, doubt, unbelief, lack of clarity, lack of peace, and fear.
He said, “Marlene, You are MY child; you have received me unto yourself. You are forever in My Eternal Life.
God wants us to know the importance and value of raising our children in HIS PRESENCE,
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.“I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30
The Lord wants us to mirror His Life and sow seeds of praise and thanksgiving.
“I JUST CAN’T STOP PRAISING HIS NAME!”
Sowing Godly seeds into our children and grandchildren are guaranteed to bring a good harvest.
In 2 Samuel Chapters 11 & 12 we read the story of how King David looked down from his rooftop and saw Bathsheba taking a bath. She was the wife of Uriah the Hittite one of King David’s soldiers.
King David entertained ungodly thoughts, which led him to ungodly actions. He took the bait of Satan. David decided he could take what he wanted because he had the power and position to do so. He sent his soldiers over to retrieve Bathsheba from her home.
When he was finished with her, he sent her back home alone. His used his powerful position break God’s commandments.
When King David finds out Bathsheba is pregnant with his child, his fear of exposure caused him to continue in his sin. King David requests Bathsheba’s husband be returned from the battlefield. David hopes he will go home, sleep with his wife so her pregnancy would be covered.
The first night home Uriah sleeps outside King David’s house, with the servants. He was loyal and refused to take pleasure by going home to be with his wife. David becomes desperate and arranges to get Uriah drunk. But alas. Uriah still refuses to leave his post and go sleep with Bathsheba. He would never see his wife again.
Now even more desperate and dark in his sin, King David instructs Joab, Uriah’s military leader; to put Uriah at the front of the battle; and to withdraw the troops help.
As planned and anticipated Uriah is killed. How many now are a party to King David’s sin, shame and now murder? Did David repent? No? As Bathsheba mourns her husband’s death, David takes her as his wife. The cover up continues.
David’s thoughts and actions were not hidden from God and just before the birth of the baby, God sends the prophet Nathan to confront David. He tells him a story of a wicked man. As David becomes enraged, Nathan reveals to David that he is the man of whom he was referring.
Nathan also tells David his child would not live. At this point David repents and of course God forgives David but consequences of the sin remained.
After the birth of a son, David prayed and fasted for this child to live; but the baby died just as Nathan had said.
David’s seeds of unrighteousness brought much heartache not only to his own life, but also to the lives of many others.
What began as a temporary seed or thought in his mind, grew into many acts of fleshly disobedience to God. This caused heartache for David and many others.
When David’s heart turned back to God, he didn’t try to cover up the sin anymore. He didn’t hide from the shame. He repented and cried out to God and gave praise and thanksgiving.
God’s mercy, grace, peace, and power gave him strength to get up from his sin and to walk again as a Godly man.
I believe the Lord was saying to King David, “You can’t do anything without me that is eternal life.“
In response to the death of his son King David writes in Psalm 9:
I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. For you have upheld my right and my cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously.
Even the bad seeds we have sown, can be forgiven by God. Many times, we will still have to reap earthly consequences.
As we praise the LORD for our eternal life, we can trust that God will hear our prayer and take us into His loving arms and comfort us.
