The Sin That So Easily Besets Us

I was thinking on Hebrews 12:1 and “the sin which doth so easily beset us.” Beset is trouble or threaten persistently. I am not sure how many can relate to that (or are willing to admit they can relate to that), but I sure can. The devil knows our point of weakness and he knows exactly where and when to attack. He’s also a master at self-condemnation if we do fall, but if you continue to read Hebrews 12 you will find “whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth…(6)” The Lord does it out of a place of love (not condemnation) and verse 11 tells us “afterwards it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness…” Once the Holy Spirit has corrected us and we have ask for forgiveness, that sweet peace is restored and the devil can’t hold that over your head any longer. After that, it’s time to suit up and put in your armor of God to prevent future attacks. Take extra care for those areas the enemy hit hardest because he will be back and you need to be stronger in the area of that sin that so easily beset you. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” ~ Hebrews 12:1

“Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.” ~ Hebrews 12:11

This verse brought tears to my eyes this morning. It offers so much hope to a hurting and “sick” world. Even those who have slid back can repent and come home, he didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Jesus said it Himself! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“{31} And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. {32} I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” ~ Luke 5:31-32

You know not the hour the Lord returns. I was praying this morning and the Lord clearly gave me this verse. It is also so important for His children to confess our sins before Him. Don’t be caught with your lamp empty when He returns! Thank You Jesus for Your grace. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” ~ Mark 1:15

God is a Spirit and you can feel His presence all around you when those praises are going up and you are worshiping Him in spirit. You don’t have to be in church, you can have that one on one communication with your Father right in your home. You don’t need a priest, you just need your spirit to praise His Holy name, worshipping in spirit and He will meet you right where you are! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“{23} But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. {24} God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.” ~ John 4:23-24

I love these verses so much. Jesus looked right at the woman at the well and saw into her situation and continued to tell her about the water that springs to eternal life. He knows your past and it’s not too dirty for His water to cleanse. His water is cleansing, healing, and refreshing. Come dip yourself in the waters that will make you whole! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“{13} Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: {14} But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” ~ John 4:3-14

The Lord has had me in John chapter 3 all week. I’ll wrap it up with today’s verse. There is freedom in His son. Freedom from the bondage of sin. There is everlasting life through His precious blood. All you have to do is except the gift He so willing gives and take His hand. He works from the inside, it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” ~ John 3:36

All Things Work Together…

I’ve been really sick for the last couple of days with a virus. I barely made it through work on Monday and had to call off the last two. I’m still not keeping food on my stomach. Anyone who knows man knows calling off work is a big thing for me. I was laying in bed thinking of all the negatives this virus was causing when it suddenly occurred to me to check my weight. I had lost 5 pounds since Sunday evening when I weighed myself. I had to to chuckle. God works everything out in our favor, even this virus! It hit me just one day after the Lord had dropped a heavy word into my spirit and I don’t believe that was by accident. I had enrolled in two intense courses as well and the devil was mad. Look at God still working it out in my favor. This evening sick as could be I still listened to today’s session, read my next chapter, and pedaled my steps. Devil is a liar. All things work together for my good because I am a daughter of THE King. ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Light and darkness and cannot abode together. Verse 20 tells us, “For every one that doeth evil hateh the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” We see a lot of darkness in this world and they hate it when the things they do are brought out into the light. As followers of Christ you can not abide in darkness and profess to follow His light. The two do not align. Verse 21 tells, “But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” What is done in darkness always comes to light. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“{19} And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. {20} For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. {21} But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” ~ John 3:19-21

I’m sorry for the late hour of today’s Nourishment post. I was sick and spent most of the day sleeping and then spent the afternoon and evening at the ER and sleeping again, but the devil will not win! I love theses two verses. Jesus came to save us, not condemn us. The enemy will often plant thoughts of self condemnation in our heads, don’t fall for it. You have been redeemed through the blood of Christ. ~ 💛 Chelle, #f8ithgal

“17} For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. {18} He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” ~ John 3:17-18
