Trying To Look Good

Have you ever tried to look good all while portraying a lie? Have you ever gave a false image of yourself so others would like you or think higher of you. In this video I talk about that and what God things about that. There was a couple in acts that wanted to portrayed as more generous than they were being and God was not pleased with it.
Acts 5

Covet

There is good coveting and there is bad coveting. In this video we cover both and how God plays a role in it all.
Micah 2

Relentless Lover

Talking about the prophet Hosea who God told to marry a prostitute named Gomer. When Gomer ran away the Lord told Hosea to go get her back. What He did for her will blow your mind. and just as Hosea went after Gomer the Lord relentlessly pursues us because he loves us and sees something in us we don’t see in ourselves
Hosea 3

Devotion: Don’t Awake Sexual Hunger Before Marriage

When we have sexual encounters for the first time it awakens a hunger and thirst for sexual things and if we do that before marriage then we will try to satisfy it with things that will hurt, damage or produce baggage in our lives. That is why Solomon said “Do not awaken or arouse Love before it so desires” Do not awaken these sexual hungers before you get married.
Song Of Solomon 2

Comforting

I have been writing a devotional book and I had to share with you this particular devotion about being comforted by God and then you are able to comfort others the same way the Lord was there for you!

Day 258
Comforting Others

He (God) comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
– 2 Corinthians 1: 4 (NLT)

I love this verse so much in that first God longs to comfort us. When we are hurt, broken hearted, down, depressed, and mourning God is there to comfort us if we allow Him to. I remember being 15 and having the first guy I ever loved break up with me. I was so angry at God that I told the Lord I didn’t want anything to do with Him anymore. Months into my broken heart I was lying in bed crying when I felt these arms wrap around me. They were strong, warm, and comforting. I didn’t realize it was God who was doing it so I freaked out and started crying harder thus rejecting what the Lord was trying to do in my life. I wish I had known then the Lord was hurting with me and wanted to bring His peace and wisdom into my situation.

Years later I surrendered my life to Jesus and I have been comforted by God many many many times. He has walked me through painful situations by bringing peace and understanding. When I have come out on the other side of my pain healed and restored the Lord brings other people in my life that are going through similar situations I have faced. God nudges me to comfort them just as He did me. There was a time I didn’t understand why the Lord wouldn’t just comfort them directly himself but I began to realize that they didn’t know how to allow God to comfort them just like I didn’t get God was trying to comfort me when I was 15. After I understood this I was able to not only comfort them but point them to the Lord who wanted to help them walk out the pain or hurt they were going through.
There are things God has walked you through that were hard, hurtful, and painful. Because you had a relationship with the Lord you were able to allow him to help you heal and be comforted. Not everyone will have that because of their lack of understanding of God. There will be people that will remain broken, hurt, and disappointed if you don’t comfort them and point then back to the Lord. God wants to use you to bring healing in people’s lives.
This may sound very intimidating but all you have to do is listen to what God is telling you and walk them through just as God did for you. You don’t have to have an education in psychology to help others. Your experience is education enough to recognize where a person is at and comfort them in their time of need.

Is there someone in your life God wants you to comfort because of what you have been through? Do you make yourself available to God to use you to comfort others just as He has comforted you in your life?
