Freedom In The Truth-A Testimony Of Faith

The Truth "will "set you free

The Truth Matters

Satan tried his best to move on me one night. I wasn't doing very well financially and I had put my name out there for work cleaning houses.

Now here I am considering myself a child of God and I'm looking around saying to myself, nobody else has to stoop this low. I was to work for a woman who attended my church and all I could think about was my standing in the church and how embarrassed I would be if anyone found out. How humiliated I would be. You'd think that would be enough to make me angry.

Then I began thinking how so many others were doing better than I was. I could have turned against God at that very moment. I could have allowed that anger to rage in me. It was then that the Spirit of disernment fell upon me. I began to look at things differently.

You see, it's not about them, it's about me and what God has planned for my life. I needed to trust in him/put my Faith in him! Was I going to hand my life over to Satan on a silver platter over money or prestige? Satan will put many things in the way of our salvation. Pride, anger, envy, jealousy, hatred, resentment and he had put all these before me in a single minute. He was trying to steal My Salvation! Satan wants to steal, kill and destroy.

God doesn't wage war the same way satan does. Satan uses evil thoughts. Satan wars against the flesh but God wars against the evil spirits that try to come upon us/influence us with the Fruits of His Spirit which are Love, Peace, Joy, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperence, Disernment and Long Suffering. These are the fruits of His Spirit.

I could have fallen, but because God gave me the Spirit of disearnment I didn't fall. I was aware of Satans evil schemes. You see, it's not about anyone else, it's about us, you and me and our relationship with God.

Now instead of falling away from God I chose to use this as a testimony to you. We can become stronger and wiser and get out of harms way, if we look to God in ALL things. Satans truth is NOT God's truth! Satans truths are lies and are meant to decieve us/sway us. There is freedom in The Truth. There is healing in the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set us FREE!!!

Satan's temptations are many and he knows what will be hard to resist. I think your security in Christ was stronger than you do my sister. I believe that you feel the edge of the cliff and felt like you would fall over because Satan lies so well and we are but dust. But I remember the verse that says that though a man or woman "fall, though he fall, he will not be utterly cast down for the Lord upholdeth him in His hand." I know how scary it is when we see how we could have given in to the plans Satan has for us but "God is faithful in that He will not allow us to be tempted above that we are able but with the temptation will give us a way to escape it." Your faithfulness is an example to me. Your courage becomes my courage. Your honesty edifies me as your brother. I love you.

You are so right brother! Satan is on the prowl day and night seeking imformation on what will tempt us/pull us away and destroy our Faith in God. Faith is the key to heaven and satan wants it. My flesh is weak but God is strong! Thank God that we can excape it! I believe our testimonies of Faith help to build others up by being open to eachother about how God came through for us. God says to build eachother up. I love you too brother! Anyone else have a testimony? Share!

Joel Osteen advocates expectant waiting. When faced with a dismal situation as you described (I've been there! I once lived in a battered woman's shelter) Praise God for your deliverance and for the good things God is bringing into your life. It sounds corny, but it really, really works.

Blessings GarnetBird! Believe and you will receive! I have a hub called "What Are You Believing-And What Are You Recieving". If we believe it, we will recieve it. God says that whatever you ask for in His name it shall be done and to expect it as you say. Thank you for stopping by and leaving encouragement!

I think it all depends on the motive in the end. Cleaning houses was a blessing for me when I needed to save extra money to buy my home (closing costs). I had exactly what I needed the very week I needed it ~ to the penny. However, if the motive for doing any sort of work is just to have more money in and of itself, that is a battle of the heart. God provides for us so perfectly ~ and in my case, cleaning houses was a blessing, allowing me to claim what He wanted to bless me with...a home. I thank Him so much for His love. Love you, sis ~ I totally understand where you're coming from and God had the victory here!!

Blessings Judah's Daughter! Its not to say I won't do this, its a matter of if I can. I wanted to let others know how Satan will attack and use our good intentions against us. I am disabled from a back and neck injury and my social security is very low. I have 166.00 left after paying my rent (which is a little over 500.00 a month, the cheapest I could find) to pay my electric and car insurance. I don't even have enough for that really. I try not to use my electric unless its really really cold or hot. Can't afford cigerettes. I have to find work doing something. No choice in the matter. Thank you for stopping by, Love you too and yes God had the victory!!!

You can sing like an angel :-) Wouldn't it be wonderful if God would open the door for you to sing in churches ~ they may even give a "love offering". You have quite a ministry! And, maybe the Lord will provide a Christian room-mate that while living together, both of you could have some financial relief. I'll be praying for your needs, sis. I love you so much.

Thank you sis! Yes we were both gifted. You sing like an angel as well. At least we have those options (singing and love offerings and getting a roomate). I'll have to remember that. I just wish I had a two bedroom like you (more room for ones privacy). Thank you for your suggestions! Blessings and thank you for your prayers and I love you too!

TimeHealsAll, there is no honest job that provides even the least in income that God will not ask of us. Every honest Job serves mankind in some way.

As soon as you took your eye off of what everybody else's blessings were, the Holy Spirit gave you discernment of how God deals with us individually, and when it comes to prosperity, trust is everything. When we earn trust from God for little and use it for his benefit then he trusts us with much. Great testimony!
