CHILDREN OF GOD, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 2/15/21, From Ken Smith<><
Good Word today from that church in Texas today.
“Most of the negative things we face day to day are simply distractions. But too often, we put time, worry, and energy into battles that aren’t ours to fight. They belong to God!
I want to help you recognize that if someone doesn’t see who you are, it’s okay; move forward!
You don’t have to worry about what someone said.
You don’t have to please everyone.
You don’t have to give every problem your energy.
You don’t have to waste your energy getting upset. Let God fight your battles and be your Defender. Your time is too valuable to spend responding to every distraction. Remember …
Your life is about living out your destiny, and many times you’ll need to dismiss the distractions so you can walk in the promise! I’m not saying to be passive and not fight any battles. I’m saying to look at how important those battles are. Ask yourself, “Will this battle propel me into my destiny?”
I got up this morning talking with the LORD about the day and HE began by telling me that HE did not need to make every decision in our lives for us. That real freedom was in knowing what would bring LIFE or DEATH. That like the Bible teaches where ever our feet go as long as what we are doing is supportive of HIS Life, we are OK. We are not made free in Christ Jesus through the Truth of God for the purpose of sin. We are made free to enjoy the Kingdom of God on earth in the middle of the curse brought on by Adam’s pride and rebellion and enjoy HIS victory over it. That the more we find and keep the commandments that our Creator has sent to us by HIS prophets the better our lives will be both on earth and in heaven with HIM. We are in a crash course of learning how to use our freewill in a positive way. And with the wisdom of God available to us through the Word of God to not get our shoes laces tied together by our pride and stupidity. God is for us, who can be against us when we believe in and act upon HIS precious promises.
I often reflect upon the temptations of Jesus as the “Son of Man” like us on that 40 day fast. Notice that when lucifer came to tempt HIM what resources did HE use to get the victory? You look it up…. Where did Jesus go when in deep trouble and profound temptation. Could it be that the same concept would work for us that this is an example ? We are so pron to be such actors and hypocrisy. Our Creator has set up a Gym on earth that will either make us very strong or to be ejected into outer darkness. If we follow the example of Jesus, we can be more than conquers, Rom.8. If we pretend to make Jesus LORD our end is very bad. Read the last 3 chapter of the Revelation of Christ Jesus and really think about what Jesus is sharing with us. It is very different when modified through you local church theater traditions. There is no sloppy agape or greasy grace found there. You are either clearly in, or clearly out. Now is the time to consider.
So in you walk today, in what ever you feel to do, is Jesus walking with you or are you alone. Is it HIS battle you are investing your time in or are you investing your time in making your flesh feel more comfortable. It is amazing how easy it is for the powers of darkness to con or manipulate us into thinking that by serving our flesh we are really serving the LORD.
Our world today is so full of lies and deceit that it is very difficult to see clearly what is going on. That is why The Word of God came to us as the “Son of Man” in a barn so he could speak our language and clearly get the simple message to us of HIS great love and faith in and for us to choose to want to be with HIM. HE also gave us the great and precious promises, (and HE never lies), about what HE has planned for us if we seek and find victory over this world in and through HIM. But we must choose to come to HIM and Seek, Knock and Ask for HIS help, HIS grace. If we then decide to make Jesus LORD and find HIS commandments and keep them we will then be able to overcome the world as Jesus did. Again read Romans 8…. AMP
Rom.8:14-19, “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of ] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father! 16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God. 17 And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory. 18 [But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and [g] for us and [h] conferred on us! 19 For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship].

Worthy Brief <firstname.lastname@example.org> Investigators from the World Health Organization (WHO) looking into the origins of coronavirus in China have discovered signs the outbreak was much wider in Wuhan in December 2019 than previously thought, and are urgently seeking access to hundreds of thousands of blood samples from the city that China has not so far let them examine. Chinese authorities refused to provide World Health Organization investigators with raw, personalized data on early Covid-19 cases that could help them determine how and when the coronavirus first began to spread in China, according to WHO investigators who described heated exchanges over the lack of detail. A magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck Saturday off the coast of Japan’s Fukushima prefecture, which was home to one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters almost a decade ago. Snow and ice blanketed large swaths of the U.S. on Sunday, prompting canceled flights, making driving perilous, and reaching into areas as far south as Texas’ Gulf Coast, where snow and sleet were expected overnight. Minneapolis on Friday backtracked on its original push to defund the city’s police department in the wake of George Floyd’s police custody death after residents begged the city to hire more officers, citing longer response times and increased violent crime. A video posted to Instagram on Saturday evening by user ‘standwithseattlepd’ shows a snow barrier built by protesters outside of the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct.
