No Not One! 10/21/15
I KNOW you KNOW this, BUT.....................
2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (KJV)
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Greeting today from Foley,Al., and YES- I'M STILL HERE!!!
It is 2:05 AM and I am wide awake and ready to preach.
I AWOKE this morning, and YES, I am STILL glad to awake, thinking about what WE do to make the flesh obey and "succeed."
Too much emphasis is placed on "success" - IN THE EYES OF MEN!
Ya see, "THE SERVANT OF THE LORD MUST NOT STRIVE!"
2 Timothy 2:24 (KJV)
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
STRIVE-middle of an apparently primary verb; to
, i.e. (figurative) to
:- fight, strive.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.
Now PLEASE hear me out.
YES, it is good that WE "strive" to be the best we can be and do the best we can do.
It is good to obtain the highest level of education and excellence possible to achieve, BUT there comes a point where WE "HAVING done all, to stand!!!"
Ephesians 6:13 (KJV)
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Call it, if you wish, "the point of diminishing returns!"
WE are our fiercest and worst critics!
I do not like to hear or see my recorded "performances," even though I do learn from them.
I well know and well wish I had done better and always "strive" to do my best.
BUT, dear brethren, even our "BEST" is not enough!!!!
Without God, without the ANOINTING of the Holy Ghost, all is a wasted effort-even though WE did our best and trained our fullest!!??
What are you talking about, preacher???
Hear the Words of Jesus and John the Baptist:
John 15:5 (KJV)
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
John 3:30 (KJV)
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
Our BEST is never enough!!!!!
John 3:27 (KJV)
27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
THE YOKE OF satanic OPPRESSION IS BROKEN ONLY BY THE ANOINTING!!!
Isaiah 10:27 (KJV)
27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
NOT by OUR feeble talent or expertise, but through His MIGHTY Name-IN THE NAME OF JESUS!!!!!!!!
Brethren, this is a heavy-duty, ANOINTED Word to YOU and me today!!!
Stop kicking and critiquing YOURSELF, and PRAY!!!!
PRAY for God's Anointing on what you attempt- "THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS!"
2 Chronicles 20:15 (KJV)
15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.
1 Corinthians 3:6 (KJV)
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
God, and God ALONE, GIVES the increase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our task, our duty, is simply to step out in FAITH and walk on the water!
God, and God ALONE can only sustain us and allow us to WALK on the water!!!
Psalm 60:12 (KJV)
12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
What can I add or say more!!??
GOD BLESS YOU TODAY!!!
