“You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:34-37
I often wonder if the Lord were walking around today what He’d say. Probably not too far from the above. Remember, Yeshua (Jesus) was alive during a really awful time as well in the middle east. There was Rome, the area Jesus lived in was explosive as those that started riots against Rome almost all the time is around the time He started proclaiming the Good News.
It’s exactly like the times we are in now! Those that were the Torah teachers (not all of them, but a large number of them) had a ‘holier then thou’ stance to Jesus (the freaking Son of God!)
I will admit, the above scripture convicts me. What I type on the net, what I say out loud will all be taken into account one day! It will for all of us.
It’s sobering, humbling and causes me to yield to the will of God for my life.
The more time you choose to spend with God daily, you will become more repetitive to His words I promise.
I mention this to say in love to the blogging community, Jesus does indeed love us. But it also says, God disciplines those that He loves. Like a parent would.
He’s not a God of wrath, but of Justice and Mercy.
For His own reputation sake, He will not destroy those that are His children totally. He is Love, and as such He does these things to soften our hearts to His heartbeat!
I myself have had trouble bingeing at night lately, and it grieves me.
But, God has reminded me ‘What is not possible with men, is possible with Me.’
His truth crushes the lies of even my own head. His truth of, ‘Hannah, you don’t live by bread alone (the things of this earth, including food) but by every Word that comes from My Mouth.”
I am learning how to be satisfied in Him, not in my weight, my dress size, my xyz you name it. I need to get rid of ‘me’ and get more into ‘Him.’
Our church has called a three week fast, and for the past week I have been up at night eating till my stomach hurts. Then working out the next day in excess. (a form of purging)
I am realizing, just taking time each day to be with God will be the commitment I make. Just keeping track of what I eat daily, because I am having a gastric sleeve surgery in June this year.
I ask for prayer from those that read my blog. I need strength and I find it only in God.
The prayers of His people He listens to.
May you have a blessed day, love you guys.
