“LISTEN TO HIS VOICE AND STAY WITH HIM”


Listen to His voice and stay with Him. Let’s go to:

Psalms 44:16 “For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; By reason of the enemy and
avenger.“ (KJV)

voice (Strong’s 6963) call aloud, voice or sound;
reproacheth (Strong’s 2778) to pull off, expose, betroth (as if a surrender), reproach or blaspheme;
blasphemeth (Strong’s 1442) to hack (with words) or revile (criticizing angrily in abrasive
language);
reason (Strong’s 6440) the face, presence or person; (from Strong’s 6437) to face, appear or look;
enemy (Strong’s 341) hating, adversary, enemy or foe;
avenger (Strong’s 5358) to punish, grudge or revenge.

Know it that going out there in this world standing up for Him you will have adversity and those that are not for dear God so are not for you. Expect and be prepared always being wise and using sound judgment. The way to be able to handle these things is to stay with dear God and hear His voice in the Word. He wrote it down for you to use. He did this life through His Son, Jesus the Christ, perfectly so you and all who believe on Him will have the victory in the eternity, too. Do it His Way and use that sword of the Lord as here in:

Revelation 1:16 “And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and His countenance [was] as the sun shineth in his strength.” (KJV)

So use that sword to help you out in your daily life here cutting away the negativity you may be carrying with you and ask that He forgive you. That way you have more room for truth and good things to fight His battle with arming you with positive and confident thoughts in your mind. This way more of His light will be in you because you spend time with Him taking the time to understand what you read in the Word with deep understanding so you can shine for Him as here in:

Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Which is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” (KJV)

So when you are out there in your daily life and even if there is controversy and those against you, do not let it stop you do your job for Him by shining His light. Take every opportunity to give of yourself like helping someone unable to pass through a door or just your smile lifting up someone that is having a difficult day. Ease the pain of someone that is going through a major illness by your faith and confidence in Him reassuring them that He is alive and here in you because you are in Him. He is still living and the Word is living in what you learn and each time you learn, there may be some other way that you can help Him out when you study more allowing Him to let you grow at your own pace and do what it is He has for you to do with the talents He has blessed you with.

So if you have lots of adversity or confusion coming your way, check yourself out. Are you into Him talking with Him? Are you focused on things of this world and not on the promises that dear God gives you? If not, get into Him and help yourself out by going to Him. He is all about clarity as here in:

I Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not [the author] of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” (KJV)

So if something does not jive with Him, His Plan and what is of Him, get it out of your life if you can or stay away from it. Know how the enemy or, the devil, works. He is very cunning as here in:

Genesis 3:1 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, “Yea, hath God said, ‘Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” (KJV)

See how he went against God’s law and tried to upset God’s Plan as here in:

II Corinthians 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with godly jealously: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present [you as] a chaste virgin to Christ.”
II Corinthians 11:3 “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” (KJV)

beguiled (Strong’s 1818) to seduce wholly, beguile or deceive; (from Strong’s 1537) from or out, (from Strong’s 538) to cheat, delude or deceive.

So if Satan did this, that is wholly seduced, Eve in the garden, the negative spirit of the devil and his helpers are out there continually attempting to destroy dear God’s plan as the devil is the destroyer as here in:

I Corinthians 10:10 “Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.”
I Corinthians 10:11 “Now all these things happened unto [them] for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” (KJV)

Learn from the Word so that you are not destroyed and fall into Satan’s trap. He is the only one named to perish and he does not want to be alone. You are living in these end times and it is your choice to either listen to dear God and know what it is He has for you to do, or not. Your life here and eternally is up for grabs, so you decide. Remember that you have power over all enemies as here in:

Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of
the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (KJV)

So be wiser than him by knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are and use them to your benefit. Do not let the enemy see you shake and keep with dear God. He is your Wall and your Light here.

Finally, listen to His voice and stay with Him. Keep the Word right in the front of your mind so when you are out there and adversity comes your way, you take care of it and continue getting His work done. You can do it and you will get even more sent your way by handling dear God’s work. He loves you for it and expects more of it and will bless you even more!

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Word,

I agree with the first paragraph needing a little extra care in editing. Amen Though, truly we should study to show ourselves approved. Enjoyed reading through your passages and encouraging thoughts. Bless you, littlelight
