When the enemy uses our faith against us…..

When the enemy uses our faith against us: Laura Grace

“Fear” about not having enough faith! Yes that happens too! The enemy of our souls stops at nothing. He doesn’t care how he “gets us”. Here we are trying to do the right thing and having faith with all our hearts an he says “well you must not have any or enough Faith, as nothing is happening right now.”

We look around, and feel like maybe we should just agree. I was crying and praying as i was driving yesterday after singing “My fear doesn’t stand a chance when I stand in your love, Father God.”

A messenger of God said (and I watched his video), “God can do exceedingly above all you ask or think, and his Mercy is so great, just so great, and his love is so great, I’m not sure we will ever fully understand it.” …..I grabbed hold of that, and said “Father I believe you will do exceedingly above all we ask or think!” Shortly after this, “everything changed.”

Someimes The Lord causes us to shift over to a different stance in Faith. Sometimes we are too focused on battling the problem, and we just need to look to Him and have faith that he is good, and his Mercy is great as well!

God has an answer for you today! let HIM guide you by his spirit and may I suggest you forsake those “faith recipes.” Our journey with God as individuals will be unique. Relationship with Him is the key here, not how “great we are” in having Faith. Whenever we trust God, we are indeed, having Faith in Him. Peace be with you! -Laura Grace

Ephesians 3:19-21

to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him beglory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.

As a rule….God loves Mercy More….

James 2:13 Mercy Triumphs over Judgement Pslam 23 Psalm 86 (and many more) 

As a rule, God’s love and Mercy is Greater than his desire to Judge us

As a rule, you don’t eat temple grain, but if you’re hungry Jesus is fine with it.

As a rule, men should not look like women, but it’s not the biggest thing on God’s mind.

As a rule, women should not count on outward things for their beauty, but Jesus is not going to leave you out of his Kingdom over wearing a barrette in your hair.

As a rule, we should rest one day a week but if we need to work on Sunday, or get the car out of the ditch, Jesus is not going to scold us for doing that.

As a rule-we should not be pro-divorce. If everyone’s life is in danger, and that person is dragging your soul to hell, God would rather you get free to serve him, than stay and be destroyed.

As a rule, men should lead their families and be a Priest of their home. If they aren’t God is not going to reject a woman willing to step up to the plate.

As a rule, God doesn’t want us killing each other. If you had to do it- to stop a madman he understands.

As a rule- God loves everyone, but he favors his children who come to him.

As a rule, God’s blessing falls on the just and unjust, but faith causes more blessing to come your way.

As a rule, people need to come to Jesus for Salvation. But he sometimes goes and finds them, without anyone’s help. As a rule- he uses preachers, but he can and does do great things without them.

As a rule-

God’s love and Mercy is always greater than his desire to judge and obliterate sin.

The only reason God hates sin is he loves us and he knows it causes us harm.

He’s just patiently waiting for us to figure it out.

As a rule….God is very slow to be angry (with us) 

Joel 2:13
So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm.

Blessed are the Merciful…..Because, God is Merciful! Is Mercy weakness?

Testimonies lovelyWell again I had other plans today, but the Lord began to speak to me about Mercy. He wanted me to share what it means to me, personally. Matthew 5: Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy………

Most who know me, know I have a testimony about deliverance, but they do not know how many times I showed mercy, and how I DO NOT REGRET IT!

Nope, I have no regrets about showing mercy, hundreds and thousands of times! What does mercy mean, exactly? It means the person deserving of Punishment, does not get punished. Holding your tongue, not giving that lecture, not striking back, when someone strikes you! Someone says mean hurtful things, you keep your mouth quiet and go cry, pray, sob, and say “deliver me from this evil Lord!” They say they are sorry, do it again, and again, and again, and you forgive them, 70 times 7 and beyond!

I just don’t talk about it, but yes I have done this. Mercy is when someone steals from you, and you not only forgive, you say Okay Father “you pay me back” I’m giving this to you! Mercy is when someone tries to cut you off on the road, and after you shriek in horror you say “Father please help them slow down, and not hurt anyone!”

Mercy is when, someone has hurt you so bad you can hardly see straight, but they come and ask you for prayer, and you pray anyway. Mercy is what that Father Gave, to his prodigal son, that came down the road after blowing his inheritance on women and song.

Mercy is closely related to love, forgiveness, kindness, and generosity. Mercy is a God quality. God says his mercy triumphs over judgment! “blessed are the merciful” Jesus states in Matthew 5, for they shall obtain Mercy. Funny he didn’t say “give your heart to me!” Instead, he revealed his heart to the masses, then invited them to come to himself.

If we think mercy is for the weak, the doormats, or those with no backbone, we do not know Jesus at all. He was and is, MERCIFUL!

Now, I don’t believe he was born to be anyone’s whipping post, and I don’t believe we were either. We can be merciful, and still refuse to take abuse from others on a continuing or daily basis. This  is what I was talking about with my deliverance from a messed up bad marriage, which was not God’s will for my life. I had mercy, forgave the same things thousands of times. I AM NOT SORRY I DID THAT! I needed the practice!

Mercy is a God quality, one we all need to be informed about! If we are swift to punish, retaliate, strike back, lash out, and make plans on how to get revenge……

We are almost asking God to give us a big harvest of the same, when we mess up! And this is my take on Mercy, I need it, so I sow it. I am not perfect, so I forgive those who are not! Simple! Father, thank you for being Strong enough to show Mercy! You are not faint of heart and neither are we Father! Help us to walk in the supernatural, and in your Mercy!

Can we really afford not to be merciful? Mercy! Get some today!

With Love, Laura Grace
