(Isaiah 1:18) Come now, and let us reason together, says Jehovah; though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. (Isaiah 1:19) If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
Stress is a killer it can be linked to all types of illnesses and diseases stress often causes ill-health because we keep things within. Sometimes we just don’t talk about what really ails us we keep it in. In our scripture God let’s us know that he is waiting to talk with us about our problems. Many times we are our own worst enemy we cause ourselves more problems and difficulties through bad choices and decisions. However it makes no difference to God he does not care what the issue or problem is he wants us to come to him and talk. He’ll help us by cleaning the slate and giving us a fresh start and then he assures us that if we obey him after our confessions to him that there will be positive results.
Let’s look at the CEV translation of the same scripture (Isaiah 1:18) I, the LORD, invite you to come and talk it over. Your sins are scarlet red, but they will be whiter than snow or wool. (Isaiah 1:19) If you willingly obey me, the best crops in the land will be yours. God wants us to talk things over with him he wants us to be honest with him. I believe sometimes people get confused they go to church and hear someone praying and figure that’s what they need to do, some sort of ceremonial prayer. When actually God literally wants us to talk to him just as we would our best friend because in actuality he is our best friend. He is not going to be judgmental or critical he will listen then through the reading of his WORD and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit he’ll point us in the right direction.
In this life we also need to find people that we can talk things over with. (James 5:16)Confess faults to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. Theeffectual fervent prayer of a righteous one avails much. (James 5:16) If you have sinned, you should tell each other what you have done. Then you can pray for one another and be healed. The prayer of an innocent person is powerful, and it can help a lot. (1John 1:9) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us oursins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1John 1:10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us (MKJV). (1John 1:9) But if we confess our sins to God, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away. (1John 1:10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make God a liar, and his message isn’t in our hearts (CEV).
You need to talk things over with God and also find someone to share your feelings with, you may aready have that person in your life but just have not made that connection yet. If you usually talk things over with someone and things don’t get better than maybe you need to confide in someone else. When you have the right person or persons agreeing with you in prayer the WORD gurantees results. God does not want any of us sick, frustrated, disgusted, busted, broke, stressed out, or confused. Remember what my Aunt who we used to affectionately call DEAR often said via her favorite verse (Proverbs10:22) The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. Then in Jeremiah (Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Finally in 3John (3John 1:2) Beloved, in regard to all things I pray that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. Be Encouraged and Blessed Minister Mike.
