Isaac

Hey Everyone,

Today I’m going to talk about sacrifice’s for GOD! Have you ever heard the story of Isaac, Abraham’s son? Lets read the story about how GOD told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac.

Genesis 22:1-19

“vs1) Some time later, God tested Abraham’s faith. “Abraham!” God called. “Yes,” he replied. “Here I am.” vs2) “Take your son, your only son—yes, Isaac, whom you love so much—and go to the land of Moriah. Go and sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will show you.” vs3) The next morning Abraham got up early. He saddled his donkey and took two of his servants with him, along with his son, Isaac. Then he chopped wood for a fire for a burnt offering and set out for the place God had told him about. vs4) On the third day of their journey, Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. vs5) “Stay here with the donkey,” Abraham told the servants. “The boy and I will travel a little farther. We will worship there, and then we will come right back.” vs6) So Abraham placed the wood for the burnt offering on Isaac’s shoulders, while he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them walked on together, vs 7) Isaac turned to Abraham and said, “Father?” “Yes, my son?” Abraham replied. “We have the fire and the wood,” the boy said, “but where is the sheep for the burnt offering?” vs 8)“God will provide a sheep for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham answered. And they both walked on together. vs 9) When they arrived at the place where God had told him to go, Abraham built an altar and arranged the wood on it. Then he tied his son, Isaac, and laid him on the altar on top of the wood. vs10) And Abraham picked up the knife to kill his son as a sacrifice. vs11) At that moment the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Yes,” Abraham replied. “Here I am!” vs12) “Don’t lay a hand on the boy!” the angel said. “Do not hurt him in any way, for now I know that you truly fear God. You have not withheld from me even your son, your only son.” vs13) Then Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns in a thicket. So he took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering in place of his son. vs14) Abraham named the place Yahweh-Yireh (which means “the Lord will provide”). To this day, people still use that name as a proverb: “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”vs 15) Then the angel of the Lord called again to Abraham from heaven. vs16) “This is what the Lord says: Because you have obeyed me and have not withheld even your son, your only son, I swear by my own name that. vs 17) I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies. vs 18) And through your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed—all because you have obeyed me.” vs 19) Then they returned to the servants and traveled back to Beersheba, where Abraham continued to live.” (NLT)

One day a few years back I was thinking and talking out loud to myself (reminding myself of the story) about what Abraham did. While I was talking and thinking the LORD gave me a revelation. He told me that, “As a CHRISTIAN you have to give thinks up in order to obey Me and follow Me!” Now when He gave me this revelation I was going through the time in my life that I was watching TV shows He would NOT approve of. (To see the full story go to my post about “Garbage In, Garbage Out.” https://teenfaith777.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/garbage-in-garbage-out/)

I was thinking that I had to give things up as a CHRISTIAN so that my walk with the LORD is going to be right! Sure I admit that it wasn’t easy but with the LORD’S help and prayers and help from family and friends I made it. Sure I also admit that the temptation for watching those shows has tried to come back. But I say NO and start spending more time with GOD!!!!!!

I found some scriptures that talk about turning away from sin. Lets look at them.

Psalm 32:5

Finally, I confessed all my sins to You and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the LORD.” And You forgave me! All my guilt is gone. (NLT)

Psalm 51:2

Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sins. (NLT)

2 Chronicles 7:14-15

vs14 Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. vs15 My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to every prayer made in this place. (NLT)

Psalm 51:7

Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. (NLT)

Psalm 119:11

I have hidden Your word in my heart, that I might not sin against You. (NLT)

I also found out that sin causes sickness.

Psalm 38:3b

My health is broken because of my sins. (NLT)

So I have learned to obey GOD NO matter what He tells me!!!! I have made sacrifices and it may have hurt at the time. But I know that in the end it will pay off!!!! the LORD is still working on getting some things out of my life!!!!

Is there anything that you need to get out of your life?

♥GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND KEEP YOU ALL SAFE♥

The first edit was not good so here you go. Sorry about that. #disneyfriendshipcollab David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
- 1 Samuel 30:6 AMPC

This verse as meet a lot to me in the past year!!!! I love the last part where it says that "David encouraged and strengthened himself on the Lord his God!!!!!!!!" For many reasons this has stayed with me.

1) David knew that he needed the Lord. No matter what came his way he looked to God!!!! He went to Him and praise Him!!! He worshiped Him!!!! He got alone with Him!!!!!! David had the right idea!!!!! No matter what we are going through we need to look to God!!!!! He has all the answers. I mean come on, if Hr could send Him One and only Son to die for us. Do you not think He has all the answers we need? Yes He does. The question now is, are we going to look to Him or others for the answer? 
2) So David also strengthened himself in the Lord!!!! Again with the waiting and spending time with God!!!!! We need to do that as well. 
3) This one has hit me hard over the past few months. Did you see that David encouraged himself in the Lord? It didn't say that his friends encouraged him. It didn't say that his family encouraged him. It didn't say, and the list could go on. But he encouraged himself in the Lord.

Sometimes when we are in a fight it can be hard. Believe me I know. But you have to remember that not all the time is there going to be someone there to help you. You have to know how to encourage yourself. Yes it may be hard and hurts at times but we have to do it. How do you encourage yourself you may ask? Here are a few ways: · Worship the Lord in music · Read the Word of God to yourself
· Pray ( not about the problem but about the victory you already have)
· Tell yourself what the Word of God says

Those are a few ways.

So if you are in that fight right now, just start worshiping God! If your not there still worship Him. Get yourself in the mood to start that at anytime!!!! #Devo #scripture #bible #bibleverse #bibleverses #cool #yesLord Happy Independence Day Everyone!!!!!!! I pray you all have a blessed day!!!!! We need to remember the ones that are serving to keep the USA free!!! Also we need to remember that we have freedom through Jesus as well!!!!! We are free!!!!!! So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.
- John 8:36 AMPC

#July4th #Independanceday #HappyIndependanceday #Happy4thofjuly Suicide:

What makes a person think of suicide?? Loneliness, heartbreak, heartache, rejection, abuse(physical, mental, emotional, verbal, psychologically), bulling, not worth it, ext!

Did you know that there is on average a 121 suicides a day? About 13.26 per 100,000 people.

That is sad!!!!! How many of them are Christians? How many of them are school kids? How many of them are ones that are "not wanted"? How many???? The list could go on!!!!!! Stop and think about it. The person you are sitting next to could be thinking about it. At work, school, walking down the street or even church. Yes church! Do you know that Christian have the same thoughts as well? 
Is if fun to think these thoughts? NO!!!! Is it your fault? NO!!!!!!!! Is there hope? YES!!!!!! Is there something wrong with you? NO!!!!!!!!! Can't you get free and out of it? YES!!!!!!! There is hope for you. You can be set free!!!!! That is what Jesus did for you!!!!! But do you know what? People don't talk about this. People don't look for help cause they think that it shameful. The shouldn't think this way or try to do it. People look down on people that think this way. It is hard.

But what would happen if we as the body of Christ would listen up. What would happen if we payed attention? What would happen if you got so close to God that He would let us know that someone was thinking about it? What would happen?

There is hope for them just like there is hope for us. I want to be able to help them. I want to see them smile again. I want to see them laugh again. But you know what? Do you know who wants that more then anything? God!!!!!!! He wants that. It makes Him sad to see people kill themselves. 
So as a believer: I want to make a stand and help them. There is hope, help, peace, comfort, but more important! Love for them. Let us show them love and let them see Jesus in us. 
That is my prayer!!!!!! #thinking #journaling #lifepost #Jesus #God #love #peace #joy #comfort #reallife #realtalk When life gets hard, pray harder!
When life gets crazy, read the Word more.

Life is not the best but not the worst. It all depends on your point of view. 
We need to be reading the Word and praying everyday. But sometimes we have things that come up and it can be hard. But that is when we trust Him and let Him lead us. 
Don't get upset, frustrated, angery, bitter, ext. Just give it to God and obey.

Okay so I'm learning this right now. My life is not perfect but I'm learning. The more I read the Word the more I realize how much I don't know. But it is best to listen and obey. I have disobeyed but we learn from it. What satan wants for a deaator God can turn for glory. It may hurt but do. Just obey, it may seem hard but in the long run it will work out. 
I love all of you!!!! DM is always open. If you need prayer, talk, ext. I'm here for you!!! God bless
