Sanctuary

 Where is your sanctuary? Is it a special moment sitting at the kitchen table, bible open, and the aroma of God hugging you sweetly with peace unsurpassed? Is your sanctuary a coffee shop, a park bench? We all need sanctuary. A sacred place; a consecrated spot; a holy and inviolable, secure, safe place. We need moments when time seems to stand still losing its weight on us. We sit, we lay, we kneel , in the presence of God and let everything that matters go.  We trust in that moment we are safe, forgiven, loved, able, and free.

Matthew 10:38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.
  Matthew 16:19 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”
23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.

Taking up your cross may seem like a heavy ordeal. It might even seem an unthinkable task to take on every day.  Taking up our cross is not the painful intimidating ordeal we think it is. It is our moment of Sanctuary; our moment of not my will, but yours, not my way, but yours,  not my fear but your victory! 

We sit in his presence, pour out our heart, laying it all down, then we find our selves still and listening...waiting. Then we hear or feel Him. He whispers " You are forgiven, set free, you are mine, I am yours, I am with you, trust me and my will for your life, then my peace and Joy will be yours." 

In the darkest times God is our light to our path. Often we measure our troubles against other peoples troubles. Often we measure our troubles against our own strength. We need to measure our troubles up to the Utmost High God and remember he is our God! With God all things are possible! With God you are free. Believe it! Take up your cross, acknowledge what he did for you on the cross. Acknowledge what he is doing for you as you hand over to him your worry, fear, and sin. Acknowledge how mighty he is and how absolute his love is for you, his child. Claim your moment of sanctuary today. Pick up your cross and follow him. 

1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
Matthew 11:29-30 "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Walk in His freedom. Find your sanctuary today! Go there daily. Take up your cross and follow him!
  
Amen!

  1. I am Lucifer new king of Gods planet because he threw in the towel and allowed me to be the Prince of his world.September 7, 2015 at 9:13 PM

    Ha ha ha ha ha. God cannot defeat me so I will continue my winning ways letting people go to church while luring them away to worldy distractions destroying them through denomination, doctrines, cults, immoral hypocrisy, etc. because God has no real power to condemn us now to eternal damnation.

  2. God made sinners so Beelzebub and evil angels would be winners.September 7, 2015 at 9:18 PM

    Lucifer and his demonic brethren defeat and destroy nearly all Christians because God wants them to. That's how much love God has for evil. He would rather send the whole world to hell but choose only a certain select few who have accepted His Son into their hearts and tragically God wants those people to be to few in number.

  3. Lucifer says I still have destroyed and overcome Christians from centuries ago and am still going strong today. Keep worshipping God in church my brothers will torment all of you for an eternity.September 7, 2015 at 9:24 PM

    Bloggingdevil.com is way better then blogging Jesus since all they do here is overemphasize God and Hey Zeus without making any real references to demons, demonic possession, hell, why God loves evil so much that he doesn't want to remove that infection from us perfectly permanently

  4. If men cant see past my cleavage as a woman as opposed to an object then I guess I only have myself to blame. That's my problem if they don't see I am a human being, that's my fault not just theirs.

    1. Your right sister Megan. If I dress as a whore showing shamelessly my deep cleavage, then that's my problem as well as my fault if they cant view me as a person because of my whorish attire. So I shouldn't blame them for whatever it is I am doing.

  5. Men don't see us as people when we show cleavage that's our problem we bring on ourselves by dressing like sluts.

  6. Why would a loving God want David to be king of Israel if they means David can jail and enslave innocent people as well as just standing idle and watching them get slain? Thats what God wanted in the Old Testament?September 8, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    What? So we see all government since ancient times are the perfect personification of Lucifer and the demons because them, police, armies and courts work to kill, rob and destroy people through demonic lies all people through wars, injustice, satanic atrocious laws like sexual hassling, etc.

    North America's government belongs to demons and Lucifer. And it is not good and it is not any kind of so-called champion of anything not even justice. Instead Obama and his wicked servants work to do injustice towards innocent law abiding folks. And his wicked servants are the police who seem to think that they should be exempt from the laws that they enforce and that it should not apply to them but everyone else instead. That was disgraceful what happened on the show called cops where a young man crossed the road doing what he called jay walking and was wrongfully dehumanized by being treated like a animal by having his hands bound in handcuffs which is a demonic invention and was sent to the wicked and demonic prison. It should have been a crime for cops to arrest innocent people who run away who have not committed a crime. If someone has not committed a crime they should not be imprisoned for running away. The cops should be imprisoned for chasing after and handcuffing innocent people.
