Free from fear
It seems to me that when we are presented with a blessing from God along with the blessing comes opposition. Some times this is sent so as to test whether we really want the blessing but sometimes this opposition comes purely to keep us out of the will of God. Have you ever prayed to the Lord and said: "Lord I'm here to serve you and to do your will", and immediately there after, come against incredible temptation? It happens to me all the time. Serving God is not exactly easy but if we are victorious the rewards are there. I'm having to deal with a situation at the moment where the Lord is saying to me: "Do not serve Idols, Do not worship them and do not sacrifice to them, you will serve me and worship me only." Of course with me being a single male most of the temptations come in the form of beautiful women And most of the opposition comes in the form of rather large men with big mouths. All I can do is say: "Help me Jesus!" Fortunately He is faithful and He loves me. I don't know what I would if God didn't love me. Sorry if this blog seems a little down at the moment but I'm having to deal with this right now. Man, I had no Idea this Christmas was going to be a time of such big decisions. Wish me luck.
When God made man He created him simple but man invents endless subtlties of his own.
