Today God gave me a message that is not just for me, as I was in prayer and meditation with Him this morning. I believe when I write, which is my ministry, other people may get something to help them too.
As a person who has been studying self-help and psychology for over twenty years I would like people that have done the same to understand clearly that when we Christians say, “God spoke “this or that” to me that we are not psychotic.
I came away from traditional psychology because, in my experience, I saw very few clients/patients getting better. I watched so many people spend years in therapy, and years taking antidepressants, and never getting much better.
When I surrendered to Christ I had, and still have, a lot of supernatural experiences that healed me and changed me. God started to “counsel” me by a still quiet voice I heard in my head giving me advise, showing me where I was wrong, and guiding me into peace and serenity. I personally experienced something I knew was working. My own experiences taught me the reality of a living, breathing Christ, in the person of the Holy Spirit, who loved me and wanted me to be my best self. Each day, with Him, is another learning experience. I am able to teach others what God taught me, and through that counsel, I have seen many, many breakthroughs with clients and friends.When you experience the supernatural move of God yourself you cannot deny that it is real.
If you notice when Jesus counseled with someone, like the woman at the well, he got right to the crux of the matter. He didn’t do an intake, nor did he blame it on her childhood. It might have been a result of her childhood, her love addiction, but Jesus ignored that and dealt in the now.
The past is over, with its trauma. We can’t do anything about it, and so we need to deal with living sanely in the here and now.
The minute we surrender to God, and ask Him to guide us and our lives, he sets about to bring us to the right people to love and mentor us in His ways.
I have made so many mistakes. I am no saint. I have had to deal with the repercussion of a lot of those mistakes and it’s not fun. But once forgiven, repented of and turned away from, God sets about to mend the broken pottery of our lives. Sometimes he cannot replace a piece because someone choses not to forgive us. So instead he makes another piece to fit our new life exactly. He doesn’t leave us broken. I have found that the superglue He uses is so strong that nothing can disrupt the pieces of our new life that he puts together.
Nothing I can say will convince you to surrender your life completely to God. But if you do I promise you will be amazed, as you live your life in Him, how he makes all the crooked thinking of the past a straight road.
When people who have been in traditional counseling decide to counsel with me they find it different then anything they have experienced before. God speaks the truth about the persons situation to me and then I speak it to them, guided by the Holy Spirit. Sometimes just the knowledge of something that has been hidden comes to light and we wonder why in the world we missed it. We think, “I cannot believe I didn’t see that before!”
Along those lines I want to say that if you are a Christian and you are not hearing from God it’s because you are keeping something back you refuse to surrender to Him. Like the picture of the child not wanting to give the Teddy Bear to Jesus, you might have Teddy Bears you get pleasure from and you do not want to stop playing with them. It’s not up to me to judge you, however I am just telling you that nine times out of ten that’s what is stopping your growth in God.
Beloved, there is no time like today. Tomorrow is not promised to us. Surrender it all to Him and He will come to you with guidance, love and supernatural help. Forget the world that says your experiences with God are psychotic. We cannot please man and God. I choose to please God. Your choice is up to you.
In His Unconditional Love,
