  1. Whenever I start to panic I know it is the enemy trying to steal my peace and my joy. He is trying to make me ineffective as a Christian. It makes me angry at the enemy. As soon as I realize this and lay it all at God's feet again, usually the problem is resolved because the enemy knows he can't use it against me again, or at least not very soon. I used to panic when I made errors in my checking account. When I realized how the enemy was using it to steal my joy I stopped having those problems. He doesn't like to be exposed. Praying. PS. I have been known to lay hands on my car and pray for it.
  2. Good idea. It is a double door, one about 10 inches from the other so I will have to double prop and let the flies in. Was thinking about a trail of liver treats as well. I have put her food between the doors and then outside before but she still didn't go for it. She's 14 and set in her silly ways. But it would be so worthy it if I didn't have to get up with her at 4 AM.
  3. My doggie has a little door that she loves to use to come inside, but I can't bribe her or force her to use it to go out. Silly dogs.
  4. Turtle, you have been given the privilege of carrying on your mom's legacy. You now minister to us that way.
  5. Welcome to Worthy, lyn. Jhn 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

    Welcome to Worthy, Esmi. Thank you for joining us.
  7. Hi, ilovejcog. We welcome you with open arms. Thank you for joining us.
  8. Drewsie, of course you can be saved and have disabilities. My next door neighbor has autism and he is saved. In fact, God has been healing him and he wants to be a missionary. He even has preached at his church, and he will finish 2 years of Bible college next year. At one time he couldn't even talk. If God can help him, He can also help you. Salvation is a gift. Just thank God for saving you and forgiving you. You won't lose salvation because you sin. He just tells us confess our sins and He will forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. That is God's job. We are God's "fish". He can catch us and He can clean us. We just put ourselves in His hands and ask Him to make us into what He wants us to be. He may want you to glorify Him by being just the way He made you. He loves you just the way you are. Rom 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. Rom 5:10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus died in your place on the cross, taking your punishment. That way He can give you the GIFT of salvation.
  9. Welcome again, lieb. Good point. We are saved by grace--God's unearned favor and mercy.
  10. Heb 11:38 ESV of whom the world was not worthy—wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. Heb 11:39 And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, Heb 11:40 since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect. Heb 11:40 LITV God having foreseen something better concerning us, that they should not be perfected apart from us. God is speaking of the time of Christ's crucifixion for our sin and then the outpouring of the Holy Spirit to enable Christ to live in and through us. By virtue of Christ in us we are made worthy. Nothing we can do can perfect us-- all our righteousness is as filthy rags. It is Christ's righteousness that lives in us. Christ obeyed the Father perfectly. He took our sin and gave us His righteousness. So He also did the same for those who looked for and hoped in their Redeemer. 2Co 5:21 NKJV For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Those who died before Christ were made righteous by their faith. Romans 3 and 4.
  11. Also praying, Beth. I am always so glad to see you. Sending my love as well.
  12. Praise God!. My husband had a herniated disc in his neck that pinched a nerve. He was vomiting from the pain. They put him on morphine and that increased the vomiting. Nothing helped. He lost 30 pounds in 3 weeks but was told to stay in bed. Finally our pastor asked him to come in for prayers. They anointed him with oil and prayed for him at 1 pm. By 5 pm the pain was completely gone. So I know God can heal your wife. Praying.
  13. Gal 1:16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the nations, immediately I did not confer with flesh and blood, Gal 1:17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to the apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia and returned again to Damascus. Gal 1:18 Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to learn from Peter and remained with him fifteen days.
  14. Saul was zealous about persecuting Christians. After his conversion he became zealous to spread the Gospel. God in us is love--compassion. If only we were that zealous in compassion for both unbelievers and our brothers and sisters in Christ.
  15. I like the translation that says if we confess Jesus is Lord. The reason is that when I first repented I thought Lord Jesus was a title like Lord Baltimore! I was just learning to walk in the Spirit and follow Him, but hadn't even read the Bible yet. The first thing I was drawn to do was to read the Bible. So my comprehension of God grew slowly since I was not in a Bible teaching church; they didn't even teach that Jesus is God come in human flesh.
  16. My pastor always gives this example. He has fruit trees in his yard. He says that to produce fruit, the branch just has to stay a part of the tree. If he goes out in the yard, he doesn't hear them grunting to grow fruit, they don't strive or work at it, they just remain connected to the tree and soak in the sunshine. We don't need to work at acting like Jesus. We just have to allow His life to flow through us just as the branch gets its nourishment from the tree. Corrie tenBoom wrote a book called "Not Good if Detached". The cover shows a ticket with a stub, and the words "not good if detached" are printed on the stub. It is true, without Him we can do nothing. He is the One doing the work in us and through us.
  17. Welcome, lyn. Your test is most helpful. God also says Let the peace of God rule (act as an umpire continually) in your hearts. So I always look for God's peace. Col 3:15
  18. We so welcome you to Worthy. Reply here a few times and you should be vetted to post in other areas. Hope you are blessed here.
  19. Mat 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers! For they shall be called sons of God.
  20. Friend, I love the way you rejoice in the Lord. It just puts a big grin on my face!
  21. All I can do is shake my head. Sometimes it is better to say nothing.

    I am new

    Hi, ozrick. Welcome to Worthy. We are getting a lot of Aussies here. Hope you stay and get acquainted, and that God blesses you through Worthy.
  23. 1Co 12:3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
  24. Welcome Mrs Santiago. I also am praying that God give you His wisdom and help you in every way. Also praying for your daughter's salvation is she in not following Him as Lord of her life.
