The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

Highlights from some really awesome sermons 1

I wanted to share some of the highlights from some really powerful good sermons that I've been hearing at campus fellowship.

2 Corinthians 10:1-6
-There's a battle within us, and we need to make sure the Lord is getting the victory over the flesh.
-Warefare is in the Spiritual sense
-The weapons are mighty in God
-Our victory is not in ourself
-Biggest stronghold that Satan has got is in our minds.
-Knowing has to be coupled with faith
-The battles all start from the mind
What is a stronghold?
Mindset impregnated with hopelessness
Depressed: stronghold and hopelessness
-We should be living in victory.
-Mental habit patterns that are not with God's words are also a stronghold.
-The world, flesh and devil are what wars against us.
-It takes 2 years for new thought patterns to develop
-If what you believe does not reflect truth, your behavior and feelings won't either.
-Get down to the root of the problem. Renew mind. Root out, pull down, and destroy things you don't want to grow, and then replant the good stuff. Build and replace with something new. Verse 5 talks about us dealing with it. We need to cast out things apart from the knowledge of God.

-STUDY WHO JESUS IS. Develop new thoughts though patterns.

My testimony shared a different way

So I wrote out a different way of sharing my testimony. This made my day as I looked up verses, and dived into the rich Truth of His redemptive power!

"When I became a Christian, I was lost in sin and I served the flesh. I was completely sold in bondage (Romans 3:23 and Romans 5:16). One thing I know is how I ran from God. I was indifferent to Him or His work on the cross. I was pretty young, but I was definitely running my own course away from God (Eph. 2:2-3). The Bible says that while I was a sinner Christ died for me (Romans 5:8). In Ephesians 2:4-5, it talks about how God saw the helplessness of the world and the sinfulness and He know that in order to save them from their sin, He had to pay the price (Col. 2:12-15). It talks about His great love. For God so loved (John 3:16). He saw me on my way to Hell apart from Him, and that's where He stepped in to save me. He ransomed me with His precious blood (1 Peter 1:19, 1 John 1:7). He took my place and bore the wrath of God. I can hardly fathom what He did. It says that He chose me and predestined me (Eph 1). And because of His death I'm adopted into His family. It says before we were far from God, but are brought near by the blood of Christ (Eph 2:13). It says He destroyed the enemy through His death, and we could be reconciled unto the Father (Eph 1:15-16). Because of this I am free in Him. The power of the flesh and of sin have no more hold on me. All I have to do is believe that His death was sufficient for my sins, and that through His burial and resurrection I am a new creature in Christ (2 Cor 5:17). And oddly enough, He has chosen me to share this hope found in Christ. He has put His Spirit within me to live in and through me. It says I am His ambassador (2 Cor 5:20, 1 Cor 4:3-7). I must let the glorious light of the gospel shine out into everyone's life. He has promised to be with me, giving me the power and the grace to speak boldly through me. I now have new life in Him and am a living testimony of His saving power."
