Walking With Faith / Series #1/ Honoring Your Temple

Thursday, April 18, 2019

Life's stress chips away at our emotional, mental, and spiritual stamina. Pain constantly tests our resolve (strength, and spirit), and limits. Patterns of negative experiences controlling how we react to adversity. Everyone’s struggles aren’t the same in circumstances.Whether experiencing either something horendous, death, abuse, ect. Patterns devloping from painful experiences defining how our character survives during stress. Dictating how we think, speak, relate, and behave. Our perception of life becomes our reality. Where pain defines your life future realities.

I too had a horendous experience! Experiencing extreme weight loss, 20 pounds in one day heading into a stroke or heart attack. From a doctor having a stroke writing the wrong dosage of my perscription. After surviving, my life developed destructive patterns of worrying every time I had an illness. Putting a nail on my coffin before I knew what was wrong with me physically. Eating to medicate my emotions to calm down my adrenal glands.Mentally feeling like I was always fighting to control death's reach. Because I was scared of losing control of my life.

Many times during stress we damage our body. The temple we live in. Doing some form of substance abuse( drugs, food, alcohol, perscriptions). When we do this we set our body up for illnesses and possibily death. Replacing one problem for many others.

Damaging our spirit that lives in our temple. That depends on the health of our body by not giving it love. Letting the Devil in, or death Internally damaging our longevity. Because in the end, what we really needed was mental strength. Something giving us strength to endure our circumstance. Having calmness to face life. When we don't turn to God for help during trying times, Internally we destroy the house our spirit lives in.

We need to show respect to God by believing in His promises.

Realizing He is the healer of our spirit, our soul. Calming our worries and anxieties. So that we don't have to face life alone, but in strength. Having the Holy Spirit to strengthen us internally. The Word to hear God. And parying to have communication with Him.

Psalm 27: “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?” Once we accept that He is always there on the inside, no matter what’s happening outside, we can believe He will keep us safe in our hearts.

“Be anxious for nothing.”It has been said that the most repeated phrase in Scripture is, “Do not be afraid.” Some variation of it is mentioned over 350 times. It was never God’s will for mankind to be fearful.

First John 4:18 says, “Perfect love casteth out fear. He who fears has not been made perfect in love” (KJV). For those who know God and are born again, we have experienced a love that when perfected in us, can wipe away all our fears.

"Fear is not only common to people in general, it is even common to believers. It is because we all struggle with fear in some way or another. When we read our bibles, we experience less me thinking, and more God."

If you don't have a Bible, here is one you can turn to: It is the NIV Bible
