–>Manipulation, propheLYING, and ABUSE!<–
Ladies, there’s a type of man that seems holy, but as time progresses their real fruit is revealed. They like seeming saved or ‘nice’ publicly, but behind closed doors they are a vicious snake. A man can pray, but that doesn’t make him holy. He can go to church, but that doesn’t make him righteous. Does he really believe in God’s word? Or does he just use God’s name to manipulate you into doing what his flesh desires? In this day and age, where people so easily lie on God and what He has spoken, it’s important to know the difference! Now, I already wrote a blog post about women who hear that a man is their husband(Read about it HERE), but some of you guys don’t have that problem. Some of you guys have guys telling you, you are their WIFE! Sis, if you’re not married yet, or know some single women, it’s time to listen up, because this one message is important! Let’s turn to 1 Kings 13:
–>Trusting God in Your single season<–
Imagine being in a hot and dry desert. Your lips are cracked and parched due to thirst and your stomach is rumbling due to hunger. You look around, but don’t see any water or trees for shade miles around. The skin on your face is scorched due to you not having a covering on your head. It’s not that you weren’t offered a covering at the beginning of your journey. The people who led the tour knew that you would need one and continued to offer it to you. However, you aggressively denied what you can now clearly see you desperately needed. What’s worse is that you fought tooth and nail to bring what YOU thought was an adequate covering to shield you from the burning sun.
You didn’t know the conditions were going to be this bad, you say. You didn’t know that it was going to get this hot, but the tour guides knew. How often do we do this with God? He knows exactly what protection we need, what covering we need, but we refuse the one that He offers. We refuse even His own protection! We live our life without His covering—without His blessing!
–>Suffered from Injustice? Read this.<–
I know I talk about suffering a lot and not giving up in my blog recently and I know some people who suffered grievous things will not always agree with what is said. You might think, Adrianna, ‘look I know this is in the Bible, but I feel abandoned! I feel like God isn’t there for me! I suffered great things—things you wouldn’t even begin to know how to deal with! I cannot forgive these people! I cannot let this go! Why has God forsaken me!? Why does He bless others and not me? Does He not care?’ Trust me, I’ve been there before. I’ve said these same things, just to God. I’ve been in a place where I was angry and hurt because of unfair things other people had done to me. I might not understand the depth of your struggle, but I’m pretty sure I can relate just a little.
–> Questions to ask yourself to see if God told you who your husband <–
So, you’ve found ‘The One’! The guy that makes your heart flutter, makes you skip a bit, or makes you sing. Well, maybe he doesn’t do all that for you, but something has whispered in your ear: ‘He’s the ONE!’ Maybe your excited about it or maybe your ready to run for the hills. Either way you need to discern whether or not this word came from God or the devil because if you don’t know this by now, Satan can and will speak to you every now and again to throw you off track. Don’t fret, I have ten questions that will help bring more clarity to whether or not you’re hearing from God about that special(or dreadful ) someone.
So, you’re at this spot and seem to be staying at this spot. Everyone around you seems to be moving forward, but not you. You are still in the same pit that you’ve been in for years and years. You look at everyone else who seem to be effortlessly moving on in their life and start to wonder: What’s wrong with me? God, why can’t I seem to get up when it’s so easy for everyone else? Doors seem to be closing on me left and right and everyone I thought were close to me are nowhere to be found. It seems like every time I get up; I’m knocked back down to the ground again. I’m bruised and sore from all the times I tried to step forward in what I thought you’ve called me to do. God, where is this going? I’ve been praying for years! I’m stuck and I can’t seem to get out of this pit!
->Pursuing the Blessings God has for you<-
Graceful, poised, a bit sassy, and always sharply dressed. When she looks up at you and smiles, the whole earth seems to stand still. You want this girl. You feel like you need to have her, but every time you’ve tried to approach a girl you’ve wanted in the past it seems to have failed. This one is not only the prettiest, but also one of the smartest women you’ve known. She’s well out of your league, there’s no way she would give you the time of day, but the Holy Spirit has prompted you within your heart to pursue her. You gulp a bit nervous about what to do in this situation. What to do, what to do? Click the play button on the video bellow and let’s let pastor and worship leader Sebastian minister to us on how we all need to learn how to Kiss the Girl as you read along to my encouragement. And yes, ladies if you know a guy who has this problem feel free to forward this to him. (Disney ministry spring forth!)
You’re warm and cozy in your bed getting the best sleep of your life, when a trickle of sunlight pierces through your window and touches your eye. Grudgingly you open your eyes to the painful bright light of morning, look at your calendar, and let out a big sigh. It’s Monday morning and we all know what that means, it’s time to go to work with that horrible boss you work for! She nags you and picks apart every little thing that you do without even so much as a thank you for the good you have done. She talks about you with the others behind your back. She demeans and humiliates you in front of others to make it seem as though you’re not smart enough to do your own job, which actually makes her look dumb, in your eyes, since she hired you! You could leave the job, but you find rewarding things about other aspects of your work or you just need the money. Either way, the Sunday sermon certainly didn’t help by reinforcing the concept that you have to submit to that witch!
