Do not lose heart

The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians chapter 4:

4:1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart,

4:2 but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

If there is anything I have realized at this point in my life, I have very few answers to life other than those received from FATHER.  My opinions are being formed from HIS Word and not from some independent thought.  Any revelation I have cannot be claimed as originating with me and I do not care to exalt myself as someone enlightened by any other means but simply communicating FATHER’S Word through me.

The pure Truth is encapsulated in Love and we must look at all proclaimed Truth in that light.  Mankind is swiftly coming to a corporate climax that will separate the sheep from the goats and by HIS great grace and mercy I submit to HIS calling on my life.  I have no interest in trying to be independent in my thinking or direction but simply a vessel utilized for HIS service to mankind.

Each day we should endeavor to be become more Christ-like knowing that our flesh will somehow try to derail our walk toward the light of HIS Way but we must not be discouraged when we “lose our Jesus” as my friend refers to a temporary submission to the flesh.  There are many people out there that would want us to join them in their misery for misery loves company.  We must not align ourselves with them but instead minister the Truth in Love as we get the opportunity.  There will be some who reject the Truth and we will have no fellowship with them for a season.  That’s okay.  Simply pray for them and let the Truth in Love prevail in everyone’s life including your own.

We must not let someone’s basic doctrine prevent us from hearing what FATHER is showing them.  All of us have some error in our doctrine as long we are in this flesh.  Until the flesh is totally nailed to the cross and we have been endued fully with power from ON HIGH, we must assume that we don’t have a full and complete understanding of all Spiritual Truths.  I only have to look back over my lifetime to see how I had to discard what I thought were foundational beliefs to realize the fallacy of believing you have the whole picture on any subject.  FATHER had a corrective interview with Job which could easily occur with you or me.  “Where were you when I”… FATHER might ask that same question to you or me about any topic we could bring up where we claimed some expertise.

Do not be discouraged, but be of good courage.  FATHER knows our weaknesses just as HE knew the frailness of Gideon when FATHER activated his calling to overcome the Midianites.  Let us be of good cheer as we hear of the economic tremors heading our way.  We know that FATHER’S Love is greater than any issue on this small blue planet and HE will be victorious in each and every challenge that is set before us.  If you “lose your Jesus”, find HIM again and repent.  Don’t be discourage by what you see around you but let the Psalms comfort you.  Go into your prayer closet and don’t come out until peace returns.  I assure you It will.
