When God Hears & Blesses: But we’re still Blinded By It.

WHAT GLORIOUS WORK THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES THROUGH GOD’S WRITTEN WORD…THE BIBLE!

A Blog, A Magazine. It's JustsumInspiration!

Are you making the Best use of the resources that God has blessed you with? Most of us have asked God for things and as the bible tells us, If our ways are pleasing in his sight then no good thing will he withhold from us (paraphrasing) but you can read it for yourself (Psalms 84:11).

God rejoices when we ‘do right’ and is willing to give us our hearts desire, but what about the times when we ask and don’t receive? Now I know some things that we ask for are not received because we ask ‘amiss’ meaning;  James 4:3 (NLT) says –And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.So that’s the reasoning why most of us (including myself) don’t get most of the blessings we pray for because we are asking for…

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

    IN HER INTRODUCTION AND TITLE…she seems to suggest that it is God who blinds us.
    I contend that we blind ourselves through our own sin and unwillingness to follow–and be guided by–the Lord. In the rest of her post, using herself as an example, my sister in Christ uses both Scripture and her experiences to show that …ALLOWING GOD TO USE YOU AND BEING SENSITIVE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT DAILY takes away the blindness…or veil over our faces as we follow and determine to listen to God. REALLY EXCELLENT POST THERE,, SIS!!!! 🙂
