WORD TO PONDER: OVERCOMING FEAR OF DECEPTION 11/03/09
It is true that when you are exposed to supernatural realms, it takes a part of your innocence. This causes you to feel insecure and without Me, you will be shaken.
Precious heart, I understand your fears of being deceived when being exposed to supernatural testimonies. I would rather have you carefully praying and leaning on Me than being presumptuous and falling into traps. If you are independent and presumptuous, ambitious and not leaning on Me, then yes there is reason for concern.
I do not want you to be afraid, because fear opposes faith. You place the boundaries and limits on your own faith and I will take you as far as you are desiring to go without becoming fearful and unstable. Have I been faithful to lead you thus far? Can you look back in your life and believe you have known the One Who loves and watches over you so carefully? I promised that anyone who asked Me for good gifts, I would not give a stone or a serpent. So trust that the same One Who has taken care of you thus far will also keep you and not give you over to deception.
Gen 3:22 NKJV
Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil.”
Matt 7:9-12 NKJV
Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
WORD O'GRAM: BOUNDARIES IN GOD
Outside your faith limits is
Never feel forced or
Dared to move from
Aplace you trust.
Rely on God and His
Instinctive peace when
Exposed to new places not
Secured by His Word.
In all things pray.
Never let man influence you past scripture.
Go lightly and wait until scripture becomes clear.
Order your steps according to your faith.
Don’t move unless you are sure.
Rom 14:22-23 NKJV
Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. 23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin .
