GUEST BLOGGER JANUARY: Obey God


For the past 2 weeks we have been going strong by sticking to our bible challenge. YAY Team!!!
A week before we started this I had a dream that the devil was going to come after us even harder because he can't have young adults on fire for God.
The next day I told one of my “team mates” (that's what we are team mates, like a team we all have to hold each other accountable while we strive to be closer to God.) and she said "the devil is obsessed with me" we laugh but she is so right. The devil is obsessed with us because his plan is very simple to steal, kill, and destroy. He wants to steal our joy, kill our dreams, and destroy our lives. And by us arming ourselves with His sharp sword he is becoming frazzled. He does not want us to have a sound mind and see Gods plan clearly. With the daily bible challenge that is exactly what we are doing.
They asked me to be the first guest blogger and when they started this I was so excited to be on that list, then when the time came I just could not find the time to do the most simple thing and that was to write about the most amazing thing in my life, The Lord our Father Jesus Christ. Now if that is not the devil then I don't know what is. Things that should be simple are no longer simple because he is trying with all his might (he has no heart) to distract and deter me from my destiny that God has set for me.
This week the scriptures we read were about truly believing God and accepting the fact that he is real, he is here, and he is there for us no matter what. God is everywhere even when we feel he is not. When you feel that God has forgotten about you remember that's when he is holding your hand. Whatever we want from our Heavenly Father who has more than we could ever ask for, wish for, or even think of all we have to do is ask. He will supply our needs and then some. He will help you better oneself, just ask and ye shall receive. It may not happen when you want it but it'll be right on time. God is a man if his word and his promise is worth more than gold.
God has a plan for your life it is just up to you to obey. When we obey him that is when we will be truly blessed. This is just what I have gained thus far from this journey in Christ, I hope that you have gained just much insight as have, and have seen what God can do for your life just from these two weeks of consistency. He is consistent in our lives now we have to be consistent with him.
Thank you for this opportunity, love thy neighbor, and if God has a message for you obey The Lord. And never forget your "father" knows you better than you will ever know yourself. He has your best interest in mind, just say yes and let his will be done.
Love ya'll
Victoria aka Tori !! :)

  4. Excellent Tori!Reminds me of the verse from Psalms 37:23, "The steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord and he delights in his way" God has already ordered our steps, and as Bishop preached today, written our script. It's encouraging to be reminded that God is in control! Thank you for this post.

  6. ARE CREED BOOKS GOD'S WORD?

    Creed books used in most Christian denominations are the authoritative book used as the final authority in faith and practice. The question is should creed books be the final authority or should the Scriptures be only the word of authority and the final word?

    Are creed books Scripture? Are creed books the inerrant word of God? Are creed books written by God or are they composed by men?

    CAN YOU USE THE WORD CREED BOOK AND SCRIPTURE INTERCHANGEABLY?

    2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,(NKJV)

    Would is be accurate to translate 2 Timothy 3:16 All Creed books are given by inspiration of God....? Of course not, man-made creed books are not Scripture.

    John 2:22 Therefore,when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.(NKJV)

    Jesus never quoted from the man-made creed books of the scribes, Sadducees or Pharisees. Man-made creeds were not a tool Jesus use to teach the truth.

    Acts 8:30-38.....35 Then Philip open his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.....(NKJV)

    Philip use the Scripture to preach to the eunuch. He did not use a creed book filled with the opinions of men.

    Jesus, the apostles, deacons, and all Christians mention in the Bible taught from the Scriptures, they did not use man-made creed books.


    CREED BOOKS ARE NOT SCRIPTURES. THEY ARE NOT THE INERRANT WORD OF GOD.
