I WILL NOT DIE BUT LIVE

     “I will not die, but live,
            And tell of the works of the LORD.

      The LORD has disciplined me severely,
            But He has not given me over to death.” Psalm 118:17,18.

I am a temple of the Holy Spirit, for Him to dwell in. Jesus called me to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God, which is His kingdom. He is God. He called me to make disciples and teach them to obey His commandments, to listen to His voice and follow Him. I am here to do His will and bring glory to Him. I am His servant and I am in His hand. The devil cannot touch me.

I have been through many trials and tribulations. I have been to hell and back. I have been through pain, suffering and sickness. I have been through the fire, the Holy Spirit Fire of purification. He is the Potter, I am the clay. He forms me and makes me as He pleases. I am a branch, grafted into the True Vine. I can only bear fruit as long as I stay in Him. He will prune me, so that I can bear more fruit. I have been disciplined many times and I expect that discipline to continue, until the end, because I am my Father’s child, and He cares for me. He knows just what I need and He teaches me His ways. He guides me in the paths of righteousness and He leads me to fruitfulness.

Many have spoken evil against me and said: ”He is done.” Some cursed me and spoke condemnation and death over me. Others wrote me and said I am under the judgment of God because doctors have diagnosed me with cancer. Some kind people sent me remedies, recipes and special diets. It is good to eat healthy and look after our bodies, but it is Jesus who keeps us alive and heals us, not medication, special diets and regimens. I believe in Jesus, not in doctors, men and substances. Man will not live of bread alone, but from every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. My life is in His hand. I know His voice and I follow Him. By His stripes I AM healed. In Him I HAVE the victory.

1Bless the LORD, O my soul,
            And all that is within me, bless His holy name.

     2Bless the LORD, O my soul,
            And forget none of His benefits;

    3Who pardons all your iniquities,
            Who heals all your diseases;

      4Who redeems your life from the pit,
            Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;

      5Who satisfies your years with good things,
            So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.” Psalm 103:1-5.

That is my Jesus, my Lord, my King, my God.

Do you know Jesus? Have you met Him? Do you follow and serve Him? Is He your Lord?

May Jesus bless you.
