Undeleting Facebook again

I love how the Spirit of God moves in me and causes me to walk in His ways. A few days ago I deactivated my Facebook account again. Today after seeing God‘s handiwork in the world through the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in the reunification of the Korea.

If you’re just about to stop reading this post because I mentioned that invisible personality the living God, who has had His hand in the evolution of mankind since the beginning of time, then thats your choice.

But consider this: Pontius Pilot thought he had the power to set Jesus Christ free or to crucify him. To which Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me if it were not given to you from above.”

Anyway to the reason for my post. A few hours ago I enjoyed a walk around the block with our dog Pippa. That walk normally takes me 10 minutes. Today it took nearly an hour because I stopped to talk to the neighbors and enjoy the spring and bursting blooms of many flowers 🌸 and trees 🌳.

It was on my walk this thought came to pass.

My neighbor across my back fence is Bill. We started talking since 2015 to one another. Since I connect to Bill on Facebook occasionally he sends me messages. Facebook connects us really easily.

As I was talking to him telling him that I closed my Facebook account again I could see my actions were foolish.

Once again I’m reminded by the indwelling Spirit that I am not my own, I am a branch or a cup through which the living water flows. Gal 2:20 says that I died to myself and now I live by faith in the Son of God.

Also my fear of data loss demonstrated that I’m not perfected in love and didn’t see God in all things.

I need not cut off the hand that exists to feeds others through my voice, encouragement and stories and be encouraged by others through Facebook.

We are not the judge in this world even though many take on this responsibility without authority. God alone judges.

In 2016 I remember the Lord speaking so clearly to me many times about Facebook. The suggestion from the spirit was not to remove the application from my phone or close my account because this is one tool in God’s toolbox and His vehicle to reconnect the nations.

God forgive me. Thank you xox

He Is Within You by George Washington Carver

Daily Thoughts
He Is Within You

By George Washington Carver
In Alvin Smith’s George Washington Carver: man of God, from a chapter titled “Where Is Thy Creator?” Smith quotes Carver telling his Young Men’s Bible Class: “If we are to contact our Creator, we must know where He is — where to find Him. He is within you, me and everyone. He is everywhere at any time; we don’t have to go away from where we are now seated to find Him. He is at the seat of our very being — in our hearts. He is in us and we are in Him. The bible says, ‘In Him we move and have our being.’ Our hearts within hear at His command.”

Testimony: 

Around 2009/2010 the Lord directed my attention and time to study George’s life and struggles and read much about him as I sort to glean how God communicated with him about himself and peanuts. 

I visited the National monument in Diamond Missouri with my dear friend Allen Stancil and we enjoyed an extended time of prayer as we considered the hardship George and the black community had suffered and still suffer, yet despite the suffering of all mankind, God sustains all men.

The harvest is great, but the workers are few…

The video above from GO Harvest Mission shows the simplicity of God’s promises fulfilled through little children healing adults by speaking simple words “pain go now in Jesus name!”

Have you been a Christian for a short time or for all your life, and have you ever doubted God can heal today as He healed people in his own time 2000 + years ago?

God is God, His Spirit reigns, His Spirit lives in you as you, He heals today as He did yesterday as He will tomorrow.

God is hoping you who say you are His children will walk by faith and share Himself with your family, friends, coworker, and strangers, by loving people just where they are, healing the sick just as Jesus modeled.

The question is, will you walk by faith, trust God and be a Jesus clone in your form to your community, or will you continue to do nothing in unbelief?

God only knows…
