You can't hide by Nina Keegan

Isaiah 29:15-16
And what sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their evil deeds in the dark! "The Lord can't see us they say." "He doesn't know what's going on!" How foolish can you be? He is the potter, and He is certainly greater than you, the Clay!
Should the created things say of the one who made it, "he didn't make me"? Does a jar ever say, "the potter who made me is stupid"?

It's amazing to me that the people of Jerusalem often were thinking that God couldn't see them and didn't know what was happening… They thought they could hide their secret plans from God. How audacious and strange is it that so many people actually think they can hide from God?

Psalm 139 explains and teaches us that God has examined our hearts and He knows absolutely everything about us. God made you, God put his own imprint on you, you were knit together in your mother's  womb!… You were made and pre-destined with a divine purpose and plan in Christ! 

Think about what you're thinking about... Would you be embarrassed if your family members or your friends knew all of your personal thoughts? Remember that God knows every single one of them...

So let's be deliberate in our thoughts, let's cast down all thoughts and imaginations that go against the word of God… Let's have our hearts pure before Him… Let's remember that from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks… Every evil action begins with a thought… Let's ask the Holy Spirit to help us realign our thoughts with the word of God… Let's get rid of all "stinking thinking!"
Let's resist the enemy at the onset
and refuse to pick up the negativity, complaining, foreboding thoughts and the temptations he puts in front of us. 
The Bible says that God will always give us a way out… When we pray, God sends all of heaven to help us… It is God's will for us to always draw closer and closer to Him, and when we do this, we will understand Him and His divine will for us and His merciful, loving thoughts for us, and ultimately we will begin to think on these things…

We must catch ourselves in the act of negative thinking… The devil would love to put a constant barrage of negative thoughts in our heads.. The temptation for evil, gossip, lying… He would like us to wander away from our victories on a pathway of distraction and ultimately destruction!
Let's always remember that God knows every thought we have.. that He knows the secret plans of the enemy to thwart His plans for us.

When we seek God with our whole hearts, minds and souls, when we praise Him with Thanksgiving and when we repent of all evil… We can be ready with our armor on to overcome the evil deeds of the enemy.

One way of overcoming our negative thoughts is by taking note of your thoughts for a whole day. Every time a negative thought repeats itself and begins to take hold in your mind,  redirect it with the word of God..the truth found in God's Word. Write down these Bible verses and put them plainly where you can see them, read them, and declare them so you can remind yourself of the truth of God's word and His love for you! Remember as the mind thinks the man follows.. So let's let our minds follow the good and perfect will of God!

When we trust God, He causes even the wayward to gain great understanding and the complainers to accept His instruction
Isaiah 29:24

The humble will be filled with fresh joy from the Lord and the blind will see through the gloom and darkness, the scoffer will be gone, and the arrogant will disappear and all those who plot evil will be killed. Those who convict the innocent by their false testimony will disappear. A similar fate awaits those who use trickery to pervert justice and who tell lies to destroy the innocent.
Isaiah 29:18-21

Behold our redeemer  lives!
Let's worship and praise Him and let's seek Him and His ways and His great understanding in all things and He will make our crooked places straight and our paths secure!

Isaiah 29:6
I, the Lord of heaven's armies, will act for you with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with world wind and storm and consuming fire.

Philippians 4:8-9 

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

1 Peter 5:8  

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Luke 6:37 

“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;

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 straight your paths.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,

Total Surrender by Nina Keegan

Total surrender!!
What does ultimate and complete surrender to the Lord actually look like?… Oh what an amazing thing this could be if we could actually reach and achieve this level of surrender. Of course we can do all things through the love and help and the strength of our loving Father… When we take our selves out of the equation, and completely understand that apart from God we can do nothing… Then we can begin to walk in complete surrender!

When we pray, if we truly know and fully understand that God could change things whenever He wanted to, therefore, after praying we should give it no further thought… That's what complete surrender looks like.

If we really knew and understood that when we leave our prayer requests with God, the One who causes all things to be, the One in whom all things are possible,… Then we can walk confidently knowing that God's got our prayers and the answers to them… That He purposefully inclines his ear to hear us ..and if we know He hears us, and we know that apart from Him we can do nothing… Then if we understand this and completely surrender all things to Him… Why would we ever worry?

We cannot do anything unless God enables us… So we can, and should always ask God to help us receive more sufficient strength so that we can be completely surrendering all things to the Lord.

If we relate to God in this greatest simplicity, child like faith, and having a knowledge of his grace and give it all to God in real time by praying continually and about all things… Then we can walk in God's perfect and ultimate peace!

Our whole lives should be continual relationships with God… No matter what we're doing… Do it all for the Lord… Do things with the spirit of excellence through the lens of God's perfect love. By being in a complete, and communal relationship with our Heavenly Father, then we can go about our days knowing who He is and feeling His joy and His peace even in the most mundane of things.

If we think that we have to follow some rules or do things right or we've sinned too much, then we are ultimately allowing a religious spirit to rule over us and to stop us from believing that God truly loves us unconditionally.

We must completely recognize that God is always present, His assistance will never fail us and He is never not with us… We must understand His will.. seek that!  We can offer everything to Him before we do it ...and give Him thanks after we have finished.. this is the communion we should have with our loving Father… our days should be naturally, supernatural… Because we have the Holy Spirit living in us… We have a constant guide to teach us the ways to go and how to do all things by Grace!

Praise, worship, and continued prayer purely for the love of God not because we need something!
 When we can walk in this kind of surrender… we will walk in peace!  In difficult times we need only to turn immediately to Christ and ask for his grace to cover over our concerns… This can divert us from worry to peace just by understanding the awareness of God…
 That unending Grace can give us strength to bear whatever we are facing, therefore we should fear nothing knowing that God is never not available to us and He will never leave us or for sake us…
 God would never deceive us… and when our souls are perfectly surrendered to Him and when we are committed to endure all things for His sake… God will surely and wholeheartedly supply his absolute love, grace, and sufficiency to cover over us in every situation…

When we fail to surrender and we walk in worry and fear… We are essentially walking void of understanding God's love for us…
Many times we fail to accept this love because we cannot accept the fact that ALL of our sins have been forgiven by the power of the blood of Jesus!
 When we can fully understand this, we are free to seek only to love Him with all our hearts and then we can take comfort in the fact that He gives us the greatest grace through this greatest surrender… These are powerful signs of his great mercy…

 God is worried about nothing, fears nothing...And if we are to be seated in heavenly places with Jesus at the right hand of our Father accompanied by the complete intercession of Jesus… Then are not  fear and worry just simply lies that are coming from the absence of receiving the complete love of God?

We mustn't beat ourselves up when we sin… But we must repent and turn away and then know that God has given us a grace to walk freely… It's through this love and grace that we receive that makes us want to do better, that makes us want to faithfully reject every thought that leads to sin and to live wholeheartedly for God.

The trust  we put in God completely and fully honor Him greatly and ultimately draws down great blessings.

Let's walk with a complete awareness and a fresh remembrance that God is always present.. let's let his presence consume us… Let's keep our eyes completely focused on the love and the power of Jesus Christ… Therefore we should fear nothing!

All things are possible to those who believe.. they are much less difficult to those who hope . And they are easier to those who love. And they are absolutely easiest to those who persevere in the practice of all of these virtues!

Surrender all! 
And let God's grace take you to new levels in the understanding of his perfect love… God bless you all❤️

Job 11:13

“If you would direct your heart right
And spread out your hand to Him,

Romans 6:13

and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Matthew 16:24-25
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.

BELIEVE Gods Word by Nina Keegan

I cannot tell you all enough how important it is to watch our words… The power of life and death are in our tongues… Speak life… The Bible tells us this. Our words have so much power,  we have to remember that the enemy is not omnipresent, he is not omniscient, but he does know what we say about ourselves
and our situations.. When we declare negativity, defeat, and believe the lies he's throwing at us… We are essentially giving him license to take those negative words and run with them .. As the mind thinks the man follows!
It takes a thought to heal a thought!
Be so careful what you speak and what you are thinking about… Resist the enemy at the onset..
 LET’S  STOP GIVING THE ENEMY A “TO DO”LIST ...The enemy is very limited in his bag of tricks… He can only use what we have given him license and freedom to use… When we speak and declare negative things over our own lives, we have essentially given him the freedom to have his way concerning our situation… When we say things like “my marriage will never be restored, my children will never serve the Lord, I am always broke, nothing good ever happens to me” we are declaring  the enemies stamp on our lives... When we profess these negative affirmations, the enemy has a field day… But to the contrast, when we praise God ,when we declare victory over the enemy and his schemes by the power and the blood of JESUS..We will win…!!! Turn your words around and start declaring the word of God over your life… At the name of Jesus the enemy has to flee!

No weapon formed against us can ever prosper! Isaiah 54:17

God inhabits the praises of his people… psalm 22:3

Matthew 18:18-20 - Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.   

 - And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

 - Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

 - Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

 - Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that [is] unprofitable for you.

 - Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 - For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:   

 - My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Praise is God’s address, it’s where He lives!!!
Let’s speak life, let’s stop giving the enemy a to do list!!!
