CLICK A BLESSING TODAY – Regrets. Don’t freeze!
Posted on August 22, 2010 by ptl2010 

Somedays you feel you just cannot win, when everything you touch turns awry in the face of frontal attach from the enemy.  “When the devil tries to remind you of your past…you can just remind him of his future.” – Cal Pierce

That is where regrets come from …the devil wants to remind you of the past to freeze you in the present.

Don’t let that happen as the devil is the father of lies as he tells you “you are not good enough”, “you failed before and you can fail again”, “God does not care as he has so many others to care for”.

STOP! The devil was kicked out of heaven and is headed for hell. You don’t want to follow him there!

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is God’s mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us. Psalms 103:11,12

The past is forgiven and there is hope today for “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24

Today is the day of salvation from your past. For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. Corinthians 6:2.

Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long. For surely there is an end; and thine expectations shall not be cut off. Hear thou my son and be wise, and guide thy heart in the way. Proverbs 23:15-19

Let thy mercies come also unto me, O Lord, even thy salvation, according to thy word. -So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word. And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgment. So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever. – And I will walk at liberty; – for I seek thy precepts. – I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, – and will not be ashamed. – And I will delight myself in thy commantments, which I have loved – My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved, – and I will meditate on thy statutes. Psalms 119:41-48

Jesus said “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” John 9:4-5… Yes, let us walk in His liberty and do His works.

Yes friend, on days like this, turn to the Word of the Lord and listen to Him for a change… turn a deaf ear to the enemy and shun him as he deserves it. Do not shun the Lord but turn your face to Him. Look into His wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

Even your transient feelings tell which way your face is facing. Look to the Lamb of God for He alone can save you from those nerve-wrecking feelings. He will fill your heart with cheer beyond human understanding in the face of overwhelming odds as He says “Remember, I am with you even to the end of the age.” When you have the company of the Son of God, you really do not need the company of depraved sons of man and Belial.

Praise the Lord.

    Folks, I want to share precious thoughts quoted here from http://www.ravenhill.org/conqr.htm

    Romans Chapter 8. Read verse 37: “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

    This 8th chapter, as many of you know, begins a new section in this wonderful epistle to the Romans.
    The 7th chapter is a chapter of gloom, the
    8th chapter is a chapter of glory.
    The 7th chapter is a chapter of condemnation, the
    8th chapter is a chapter of emancipation.
    The 7th chapter is a funeral march, the
    8th chapter is a wedding march. It’s the song of a “soul set free,” to use the phrase of a lovely hymn.
    Romans 7 is a chapter on the tomb.
    Romans 8 is a chapter on triumph.
    (If you want to use the phrase of John Milton,)
    The 7th chapter is the chapter of paradise lost. It’s a chapter of depravity.
    The 8th chapter is a chapter of deliverance and delight.

    Now this is a magnificent chapter. If you want to make a special bonding here,
    chapter 7 is a chapter of misery and condemnation.
    The 8th chapter is a liberated soul.
    You can explain this by this fact:
    chapter 7 is a chapter on a self-centered person.
    The 8th chapter is a chapter about the Christ-centered person. In
    the 7th chapter you read that first person over and over and over until you get weary of reading “I, I, I, I,…” “I want to do this but I can’t…,” and “I find I’m in bondage…,” and so forth and so on. If you count you’ll discover 41 times you find that “I,” and no mention of the Holy Spirit. In the 8th chapter there is no mention of the “I” except in two verses where he says “I reckon” and “I am persuaded” (where there is no alternative). But the difference in the 8th chapter is that there is all the mention in the world about the Holy Spirit. Nineteen times the Holy Spirit is mentioned.

    “There is therefore now no condemnation…” So, the chapter begins away in the heights — there is no condemnation. And it ends — “there is no separation.” “What shall separate us from the love of God?” But it does not say there is no tribulation. In fact, it marks tribulation out for us very, very carefully.

    A wretched, sin-bound man in the 7th chapter and no Holy Spirit.
    A liberated man in the 8th chapter, and over and over again he
    pays tribute to the Holy Spirit of God.

    This is an amazing Word of God. Here is a man talking about emancipation. He’s talking about an individual having under his feet the world, the flesh, and the devil. He says “In all these things…” and he doesn’t leave you to fill in the blanks. He fills them in himself.

    Be blessed to live as MORE than conquerors through Him, dear friends at ChristianBlessings.

    Looking to the Lamb of God, my Good Shepherd, pulls me right out of the edges of the shadows of self-condemnation! He sends the Holy Spirit to work with me not to speak so loudly, not to interrupt, because the Spirit just then sort of hovers over other people,gently smiling and signalling that I am Beloved of The King!

      Praise God He pulls us from the edge…we just need to lean on Him while He works all things for our good. Sounds so simple, yet true if only we can trust and obey.
      Thanks for sharing grandbee. Blessings to you.

    I will testify to the truth of this. Yesterday was such a day. Yesterday I was very down…I mean really down in a deep dark hole for various reasons. The reasons do not matter, here is what does. I wrote about what I was feeling, then I had a time of prayer. I followed that with reading some blogs. I got myself focused back on Jesus, not on the circumstances. Focusing on circumstances is a sure fire way to invite the enemy to the party.
    Don’t do it! If you are…recognize it and stop…pray and God will help you. Christ wants us to walk in freedom, not live in bondage to the enemy.

      Many times in life we get our eyes to much on the disease, to much on the situation, or to much on the problems of life. In reality our eyes should be on Jesus the healer, Jesus the Great Physician, and Jesus the problem solver. Faith needs to “wrapped up in a person”. That person is Christ, who makes us winners and teaches us how to deal with the important issues of life. There is “victory” in Christ our provider. May our eyes and hearts be constantly attached, “To Him”.

      Writinggomer, sharing a chorus we used to sing at weekday prayer meetings:

      When the road is rough and steep
      Fix your eyes upon Jesus
      He alone has power to keep
      Fix your eyes upon Jesus.
      Jesus is a Faithful Friend
      One on Whom you can depend
      He will keep you to the end
      Fix your eyes upon Him.

      Go man, go! He goes with you..you are MORE than conqueror in Him.
      Blessings to you and family.

    When a person is without Christ, he or she is a “loser”. Lost and undone. Without faith, without hope, and without Salvation. After Christ is found you become a “winner”. No defeat in Christ. No failure in Christ. A winner I say. You’re a WINNER…Did you hear me? You’re a WINNER! Glory to God. A WINNER! You have hope. You have Salvation. You are happy and blessed. Jesus made you that way. You’re a WINNER!
