GOOD GOOD FATHER BY CHRIS TOMLIN

 

I REALLY LOVE THIS SONG AND IT REALLY DESCRIBES HOW WONDERFUL AND LOVING OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN REALLY IS. I CAN’T SAY IT ENOUGH WHEN I SAY THAT, WHEN I BECAME BORN AGAIN AND SPIRIT FILLED, IT REALLY CHANGED SOMETHING INSIDE OF ME AND I’VE SEEN HOW MUCH GOD TRULY LOVES US NO MATTER HOW MANY MISTAKES WE DO. I ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU TO REALLY LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU COULD BE MISSING IN YOUR LIFE (TO BE BORN AGAIN AND SPIRIT FILLED), A RELATIONSHIP ONE ON ONE WITH OUR FATHER. GOD (WHICH IS MADE UP OF OUR FATHER, JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT) HAS SHOWN ME LOVE, LOVE AND LOVE FROM ALL THREE PARTS THAT MAKE ONE. BEING SPIRIT FILLED DOESN’T MEAN THAT I DON’T MAKE MISTAKES (I’M NOT PERFECT AT ALL, NOT EVEN CLOSE) BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES GUIDE ME IN WAYS THAT HELPS ME UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT HOW TO LIVE LIFE AND LEARN MORE ABOUT GOD. MANY TIMES PEOPLE WILL MAKE YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD IS SO MEAN AND IS ALWAYS MAD AT US BUT THAT’S NOT TRUE AT ALL. HE LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HE SENT DOWN TO EARTH JESUS TO PAY FOR OUR SINS THAT HAPPEN IN OUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURES ONES. JESUS HAS SHOWN US THE LOVE THAT HE STILL HAD ON THE CROSS EVEN AFTER ALL THAT WAS DONE TO HIM AND HE JUST WANTS ALL OF US TO SPREAD LOVE TO ONE ANOTHER. WE ALL NEED TO DESPERATELY UNDERSTAND THAT THIS LIFE THAT WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW IS NOT OUR TRUE HOME, OUR TRUE HOME IS IN HEAVEN WITH GOD. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND I HOPE THAT THIS HELPS SOMEONE THAT NEEDED TO HEAR IT, AMEN!!

ROMANS 8: 14-16        For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father”. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.   

 

 

God is teaching me about spiritual authority…

Many people in the world want you to believe that you need to have some kind of authority on you on every kind of situation in life but God is showing me that the only spiritual authority that should be over his children is ONLY GOD..  When we get filled with the Holy Spirit we have the ability to hear God better and we are also guided with the Holy Spirit on how we should live our lives. That means that we all have different calls in our life that God wants us to do. ONLY GOD KNOWS WHAT OUR CALLS IN LIFE ARE.. I hear people around me tell me that I need to listen to them and not the messages from God because they think that they can hear God better or that they know best for you. God does put people in our life for reasons at any given moment but that doesn’t mean that anybody needs to be over you and tell you what to do. We can GUIDE, ENCOURAGE, LOVE and BE SINCERE WITH EACH OTHER. Most of all Jesus just wants all of us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.. I used to be in a group of people that didn’t want to let me hear God on my own and it was keeping me from growing my relationship with God. God gave me many messages that taught me to listen to him and try to pick only the good things that people were trying to tell me. Now I love God as my true father and I can hear him give me messages. He teaches me many times about things that I need to learn and I wouldn’t of known this if I didn’t stand up for myself and listen to our true teacher JESUS. God will have me read the Bible and sometimes I will watch preacher on TV on a certain subject. God will always give me some kind of sign or confirmation so that I know that the message I’m getting is from him and not a bad spirit. Most important lesson I had to learn is that we have to discern every message we get because its very easy for a bad spirit to get in our heads and talk to us but we must always try to be careful and trust that God always shows us signs and confirmations. We all need to trust and have faith that God will show and teach all of us on his own but we have to truly believe it in our hearts that we are his children and that he loves us so much. The more I speak in tongues the more God teaches me and helps me spread his words.. Thank you Jesus!!  🙂

How powerful prayer is….

God wants me to talk about something that is very powerful, PRAYER IN THE NAME OF JESUS. When I was filled with all this love from God, I was still going to sleep and sometimes waking up and seeing this dark shadow in my room trying to scare me but it was different now because I know that Jesus is more powerful than any bad spirit out there in the world and anywhere. So, I would feel strong knowing that I have the Holy Spirit inside me and knowing that our everlasting father was with me and I would just tell the dark shadow  ” IN THE NAME OF JESUS I COMMAND YOU BAD SPIRIT TO LEAVE MY HOUSE “. Sometimes I would have to say it once and sometimes I would have to say it 2 or 3 times but when I did all of a sudden I would feel that the dark shadow was gone. I can really feel the power of the Holy Spirit and of Jesus working inside me but we have to always remember that it’s not us doing it, it’s always Jesus. We could never do anything if it wasn’t with the power of Jesus. I realized that I wanted these visits at night to stop because my daughter that is 6 years old would sometimes have bad dreams too. I truly don’t know if they are somehow related but I will tell you that I started doing something that made both of our bad dreams stop. I started to pray every night the same way ” IN THE NAME OF JESUS I BIND YOU BAD SPIRITS FROM ATTACKING ANYONE IN THIS HOUSE TONIGHT ”  and I would say it about 3 or 4 times until I felt like it was enough ( I also would speak in tongues ). Can I just tell you that ever since I do that we haven’t had a bad night. Last night I didn’t do it because I was distracted by something else before I went to sleep and my daughter came into my room in the middle of the night and woke me up because she had a really bad dream. To some people it could be a coincidence but I think that my prayers with Jesus’s name is very powerful and gives us peace at night. Now I’m just making this an example for everyone but I speak in tongues many times and pray for other things that God helps me with and I always say thank you before I even get it because I know that somehow God provides for us. It might not be in the way that you want exactly but he will provide us with what he thinks we need. I have been surprised many times with how God has shown me things that he has done for me supernaturally. I am truly blessed to have the Holy Spirit inside me and to have Jesus as my lord and father… 🙂

Another sign that God gave me…

After God gave me that sign through my daughter I started to talk to my mom and brother more and started asking a lot of questions. I really wanted to have this connection with God but I was still skeptical about what they were saying about me having to be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. One part that I had a hard time with was speaking in tongues because I seriously didn’t understand and thought that it had to be something evil (not good) but of course, I was wrong because God showed me that it is in the Bible. So let me tell you how he showed me. Every night i used to sit on the floor of my kids room and wait for them to go to sleep and usually I would have my phone and either play a game or shop online. I would like to say that it was probably 2 or 3 days after my first sign that I was doing my usual sitting on the floor waiting for my kids to go to sleep and in my head I kept hearing something like “go to the Bible and read Acts“. I couldn’t understand why I kept hearing this in my head because I didn’t know much of the Bible and didn’t even know if there was a chapter called Acts in there. So I tried to somehow ignore what I was hearing because to me it didn’t make sense but finally I decided to put a Bible app on my phone and look and see if there really was a chapter called Acts. To my surprise the voice in my head was right and the two verses that stood out for me when I started reading were Acts 1:5 FOR JOHN BAPTIZED WITH WATER, BUT IN A FEW DAYS YOU WILL BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. ACTS 2:4 ALL OF THEM WERE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND BEGAN TO SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES AS THE SPIRIT ENABLED THEM. I was in shock because only God could of been in my mind telling me to go and read these chapters. I was amazed and then knew that God was giving me these signs and that I really could have a connection with God. God needed to show me one more sign before i could be saved and I will tell you next time… 

Born Again Spirit Filled


When my dad passed away, it was hard, but not as hard as I thought it would be. I guess, I felt that he went to Heaven because I know he believed in Jesus. Of course, I wanted to be selfish and keep him on earth with me but I know that now he is in Heaven and he is so happy and has no pain ( he had so much depression and pain from his heart problems ). About a month later, I found out that I needed to do tests because I might have cancer. I was very upset because the thought of having cancer and possibly dying scared me. It scared me because I truly didn’t have the connection to God like I thought I should have. One thing I always believed that everything happens for a reason whether its good or bad. I believe that God doesn’t give us more than what we can handle but we also have to learn from the situations that we are in. So, I prayed and prayed that even if I had cancer that I would be ok and that my family would have the strength to go through whatever it was. I was very lucky to find out that I didn’t have cancer and I thanked God for that. Having this little scare I decided to listen a little to my mom and brother about their stories of being born again and filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. I’ll be honest I thought that speaking in tongues was something evil but I found out with the help of Gods signs to me that speaking in tongues is a beautiful thing.

MY FIRST SIGNS FROM GOD

It started when my brother was telling me that we are all getting attacked every day from evil spirits. Also that in my house my 5 year old daughter wasn’t getting attacked because she has a very close connection to God. (I will tell you more of how my daughter loves Jesus and has a close bond to God). My self, husband and son had bad spirits attacking us all the time. Well, I thought my brother was crazy. Yes, I thought that bad spirits are out there in the world but I didn’t think that they were attacking my family. He also told me that God will show me himself that this is true. I can’t remember exactly if it was that night or the next but my daughter told me that she had a dream that was so real to her and that she could remember all of it. My daughter could never remember her dreams that she had, even now. Her dream in her words was: she was in some kind of cave holding a baby wolf in her arms and mommy, daddy and her brother were out side of the cave fighting off a bear, a big foot and wolves. She felt very safe holding the wolf but she could see that we were getting hurt from the bad creatures. After she told me that, I was in shock. I couldn’t believe that she had a dream exactly about what my brother told me. I knew than that God could of been the only one to give my daughter that dream because I didn’t even talk at home about what I heard from my brother because I seriously thought that he was wrong. I have many more signs to tell that led me to get born again…..

THE BEGINNING

I would like to start by telling you a little about me. I have been born again and spirit filled since June of 2012. I’m married with two beautiful children that God Blessed me with. I’m very Blessed to have a husband that is not born again but tries to be understanding on what I choose to believe in. I do hope that one day he will get born again and spirit filled but I have tried talking to him many times and I have figured out that God will have to show him. All my life, ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to be close to God and I never quite found that connection that I was looking for. I’ll be honest, I used to try and read the Bible (before being filled with the Holy Spirit) and always had a hard time understanding it. I didn’t know much about the Bible besides what I would learn from church and that wasn’t much because I would only go when it was a holiday. So every year it seemed like it was the same thing over and over. I still felt like I wasn’t getting anywhere with God but I would still pray, hope and wish that God could hear me. I had my mom and brother that were born again spirit filled already at that time and they would try to tell me how wonderful if feels to be filled with the Holy Spirit and how much God (our true and everlasting father) and Jesus love us. Of course , I didn’t believe them for years because the kind of stories that my mom would tell me couldn’t of really happened (now I know that Gods power is still on earth with all of us). Well, I can tell you that I started getting more curious about being born again after my dad in 2011 had a lot of medical problems and the doctors were telling us time after time that we needed to be ready for him to pass away. My dad got saved a little time before he died and I’ll never forget how he said he felt when he got filled with the Holy Spirit and the love he felt after. He said he felt like he was lifted in the air because God took all of his bad things out of him. My father was always up front about everything, so when he told me this, it made me start listening a little. I was so happy that my father believed and got saved (within a couple of weeks of dying). That was such a Blessing. This is how I got curious…
