You Go Tim Tebow

Mary and I were talking a while back, and we were discussing world events and things in the news. Sometimes we are astonished by what the news media calls news, and by the real news that they choose to overlook.

We see loads of info on what actors are wearing and doing, but that isn’t news. We are overwhelmed by the latest sports stats, but in the grand scheme of it, all that is just a distraction to what is really important.

Today I saw that Tim Tebow was released from the Jets, but what meant more to me, was the post on his FaceBook page. All was said, was a scripture passage:

Proverbs 3:5-6:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

That is one of my favorite scriptures, because it reminds me of the fact, that ultimately, “God’s Will will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

To continue what Mary and I were talking about…

I told Mary that I was going to treat ObamaCare as if it were the Mark of The Beast. Yeah, I said that, and I meant it.

It might not include the prerequisite 666 on the forehead or the hand, but the attitude is all the same. The attitude that we can put faith in men, ignore the providence of God, and still attain the necessities of life is exactly what the spirit of the AntiChrist and the Mark is all about. When I look at some of the wording in the Bill, it requires that I receive ObamaCare, or I will not be able to buy or sale (in essence).

What leads me to this, is the fact that I swore off of health insurance back in 2005, and decided to trust in the Lord for my health and healing. I had spent many many years under the thumb of Doctors, Nurses, SSI, Insurance, Medicaid, and Handi-Capped Children’s… I was done.

I remember telling a doctor that I was believing for Misty’s healing, and his reply was, “whatever works for you…”

I remember another doctor telling me to allow them to perform a “quality of life” surgery, because if I didn’t he would (and he made an “under the breath threat” challenging my ability to make proper choices about my kids)…

I remember before doing that very surgery, they came in with release papers for me to sign, stating that if anything went wrong, I wouldn’t sue them…

I remember my ex telling me one month, “you’re making too much money, they will cut SSI and Medicaid”, and the next month crying, “you’re not making enough money, Mallory is complaining that she doesn’t have new jeans like the other kids…”

I remember when I was trying to break free from satan’s slavery, and telling my pastor that I would just rather trust God, and he said to me, “well you gotta use wisdom…”

What a load of crap!!!

I have had “christians” tell me to “stop using so much scripture, but to speak from my heart.”

My heart?!

My heart changes with the wind, because it is evil.

My heart is my mind, and my mind needs to be renewed daily.

My mind is renewed by the Word of God, for crying out loud!

Stop using scripture?  Are you serious?

Without scripture, my heart will devise all sorts of evil.

Psalm 1:1-3 tells me, “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked (counsel of the unGodly) or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.”

Proverbs 3:5-6: tells me, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

In fact, everything that God was telling me, made more sense than all the advice of the world and “caring” people around me.

Since 2005, I have pulled away from a lot of people who would pull me away from God. Those who speak doubt, strife, confusion, and the complainers have had to be removed from their desired place of influence and control on my life.

Have I had battles? Well, yeah! I still live on this planet, in this sinful flesh (and I require that this flesh I live in, be conformed to what God says, and no one else.)

I was praying this morning, meditating on the Holy Spirit’s tug to call out what I need, call in what I need, and cast out what is in the way. Whether good or bad, there is power in speaking out verbally.

I need to call in the will of God more. I need to pray and speak God’s Word more.

I sat in my office this morning, and called in God’s Kingdom. I called in America repenting, and proclaimed God in charge of her.

His Will be done, in Jesus’ name!

My faith is in The Lord God Almighty. I speak to Him daily because Jesus’ Blood enabled me to do so.

I am a friend of God, and I listen to His every Word.

The Sweet Holy Spirit is my everlasting guide and comforter.

I trust in no one, but my God! My God is the most faithful One I know.

There is no power on earth that can force me to take my faith off of the Lord, and place it elsewhere.

Challenge Accepted… Game On!!!
