Ask Me for Anything!

 

Today I was in the presence of someone who has been a Christian, I believe, all their life.  They are currently attending a Bible study being presented by a church with thousands of people.  They were stumped by a question that was given and stated three times that they thought they would have to go to the library in order to get the answer they needed for the question.

 

Then I recalled how the Holy Spirit has helped me every step of the way when I came back to Christ.  Well, let’s face it.  If I had been with Christ at all, I wouldn’t have done some of the things I did.  So I really didn’t come back; I just finally surrendered my life to Christ.

 

Then I thought about how many different bodies of believers we have and how sad it is that we, as believers, cannot come together as one so we can really make an impact in the earth.  How many Holy Spirits do we have anyway?  You would think that we have a different one for not only each denomination, but for a lot of people as well. How very sad.

 

We are in times of great division and whether by death or rapture, we will all have to give an account for what we have done.  Meetings and more meetings and more meetings.  Well, it is not the Christ I have come to learn about.  I just believed and then I received from the Holy Spirit.  I don’t think we talk enough about the Holy Spirit and I don’t think we really know about the Holy Spirit.   I have been blood washed and blood bought and Holy Spirit taught.  There is no other explanation for it.  I thank God that he cared enough to come and get and save me. 

 

All I did was ASK.  That is all I did. I learned a long time ago to ask God for anything and then get up, shut up and listen for the answer to come forth.  Thank God for once in my life I listened.  Now, this is coming from someone who spent years going to a Psychiatrist, years asking everybody else around me to please help me.  I would spill all of my problems out and nothing ever changed.  I didn’t have the proper equipment to help me straighten out my life and I kept going around in circles never getting any better.

 

God pulled me through “the tunnel,” so to speak, so I could turn around and help get the truth to you but you have to want to spend time with God and you have to want to help yourself.  Many people just want “it fixed” so they can get some relief inside but if permanent changes aren’t made then nothing ever gets fixed.  Drugs only dope up the problems to where you can’t ever get to the root of what is causing you to feel so bad inside.  This hurried way of life we are on contributes to it all but it can be accomplished.  Your life can be turned around.  The Holy Spirit can come and give you what you ask but you will have to do the asking.

 

If you don’t know the answer to any question and want to know, ask the Holy Spirit to help you.   He is here to teach you….

 

+ Train you

+ Enable you to do what you cannot do.

+ Assure you that everything will be all right

+ Comfort you when you need a loving Father
+ Help you with it all.

Call out His name and let Him help you……..I can guide you and tell you what to do but YOU have to put it into practice.  I cannot do that for you.

The “Do over”

 

For several weeks now, the phrase that keeps going over and over in my heart is “get back to basics.”  We as a generation of people have a lot on our plates right now and we could use someone to come along and wipe it all off so we could start all over again….sort of like a “do over.”

 

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just do that?  A “do over” in life.  Hey! I’m on that bandwagon!  Let me start all, and I mean ALL, over again.  I assure you that if someone was in the marketplace today and there was a person saying, “I know a way that you can do your life over if you will just do this or that,” that there would be millions, if not more, who would “bite the apple,” so to speak.  I would be one of them if I had not discovered what I have….and I can tell you that I certainly would be listening to what they were selling…and believe me, they would be selling something.  People are stressed about many things, from home life to jobs.  God sees it and He is trying through this ministry to help you.

 

To take your life in the middle of your years and start to do a new thing isn’t easy, but I can assure you of one thing:  It will be the safest place for you to be in the days and the times that are upon us.  But you are going to have to step up to the plate and get it. God is not going to make you.

 

God is not some funky thing that people wince at when His name is mentioned.  Some people give God not only a bad rap, but also a bad look.  They turn people away from the only living Savior who can really help them.

 

We have lived in a fast food, quick dried existence for so long that we have almost become desensitized to the only one who can really help.  I had a vision in my head of a plant that needed water.  If you don’t water a plant, it is going to shrivel up and eventually die.  On the other hand, if you over water a plant, it will also die from being too soggy.  We have become, on the whole, especially in parts of the Body of Christ, so watered-down with what God tells us clearly in the word that WE are the ones who are dying because of it.  Then there are those who water it just enough to stay alive.  God tells us that if we follow Him, rivers (do you hear me?) of living water will flow from us.  There are many who are dying from thirst and we need watered.

 

To the world I am nobody but to God I AM somebody.  I am somebody that has followed what He tells us in the word so my numbness can be rejuvenated and so I can live a good, happy whole life while I am here.  What I learned I didn’t learn in a church. I learned one-on-one with the Holy Spirit.  The things I have learned were basic, yet needed to be learned so I could finally grow up into the adult I need to be.  I had a hurt, young child inside of me that needed the care and attention of a Gardner who knew me from the time I was born.  I needed something more than I knew how to get……I needed the river of living water to water me.

 

We need to get back to the basics of life….you can learn from the greatest Master of them all.  “Feel good” religion makes you feel good sometimes momentarily, but the lasting results aren’t there to help you in your everyday life.  We are being misled a lot and I am here and have come at this time to give you “Another View”.  Just because you walk with Christ in your life doesn’t mean you are a fuddy-duddy…shame on those people who make God appear in such a manner that turn people from Him.

 

Basic things need to be taught about how to walk in KINGDOM life so you can get the victory.  They are simple, yet need to be taught.

 

I cannot give you a “do over” in your life but I can sure tell you that I have found the next best thing. How about a drink?

 

God Bless you,

Molly
