Gates discussed on Joseyphina's World
Everyone is new to something at one point in life or the other from trying on high heels for the first time first day in a new school first day to first day at work. There's a moment when you stop yourself to wonder if you are at the right place. We're doing the right thing but with time you realize that practice indeed makes perfect. You feel comfortable again. Everyone was someone else before we encountered christ for real and thanks to the gift of salvation. We are born in. We're no longer who used to be. But as we would have all realized by now our relationship with god is a walk one which takes commitment time comfort in practice one might look really cleaned up but once gates can give him or her away just as one can tell when someone's wearing high heels for the first time one may not totally get his or her act together right after accepting the lord in his or her life. It may feel frustrating to still be fighting the temptation of going back to pick up the habits that we lay at his feet. When we walked up to the altar to be completely transformed in the ways of god takes a determined mindset. In god's grace just as a baby's first steps guided with time. Don't expect to start this new life all by yourself. Reach out to the people around you who are already matured in god to help you out and bill feel insecure. When you have thoughts of going back it is just the enemies way of making you feel. You're not cut out for this new life and that is not true. And when you feel the urge to pick up the cigarette the drink or whatever you used to do before just say to the enemy boldly that you have jesus and you now and so he has no hold on you any longer declare you are a new creation in him and only righteousness peace and joy is your portion not his lowering pleasures and he'll flee from you and for those of us who have grown in the lord let's pray that god opens our eyes to identify the newborns in god can help them in the baby steps til they get on their feet. Let them feel part of us. Nothing works better than making someone feel belong to a family where they are not supposed to this way. We won't use them to the enemy in this dark world again. Have a great day folks..
