It is amazing to see what it is to live by Faith and not only living by it but seeing it being displayed in our lives. This past week I see the power of Jehovah through His Son Jesus Christ. We are obedient to Jesus Christ John 15 vs. 4-16. He is our Master and Savior, also who intercedes on our behalf.
On Monday, I said to my father, “Daddy you not cooking” yes he is the chef in the house. Lol His response was “the gas is finished”. I respond with “God will let us cook by faith until we receive money to purchase the gas”. The Spirit of the Lord asked me “are you convince about this?” I answer “yes I do”.
We cooked between Tuesday-Thursday twice on Wednesday on Faith gas, Yes my friends Faith Gas. It was when daddy received the checked on Thursday night that I realized that it was indeed faith gas we were cooking on. This morning I heard daddy said “Kerriann said we cooked on grace” and he was laughing.
You know it was last week I was talking about the Power of God and how am going to not talk things negative; because I looked back in my life and see persons said negative things to me which I returned back and it happened to them. It was what they wished for me and I returned it back to them. Daddy laughed at the time and said “Who you think you are?” I believe that me and Daddy was taught a lesson this week, my lesson was that I have the Authority and Power that was given to the disciples and so I should use it responsibly and with care. Daddy lesson was to show him that I was not lying, that I have was chosen to do God’s work but I was ignorant to who I was at the time.
My friends we all have our various Spiritual Gifts that is given to us by God through His Son Jesus Christ, don’t stay out in the world and get hurt by them. Yes Satan uses our Spiritual Gifts to harm us because we are ignorant to them. They can only be utilized under the Power and Instruction of Jesus Christ. Pray that God will soften your heart to accept His Son Jesus Christ has your Master and Savior so that you can receive the Joy and Happiness that those gifts offer.
May Jehovah continue to bless and prospers your life through His son Jesus Christ.

Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
The fellowship that I am a member of had Youth Convention with the theme “My Yoke is Easy”. The first speaker spoke about a yoke which is burdensome and gave the impression has if this is what Jesus Christ was saying to us. Now during the service it dawn on me that the whole teaching of Jesus Christ is so easy but still humans goes around teaching the wrong thing.
In this verse Jesus already established that we are burden and wearisome, so He said come I will give you rest. Rest to me means cease from what I am going through. Now the yoke that Jesus is telling us to take upon us mean “His union” which is the baptism Gal 3 vs 27. For us to experience this easy and light burden life we have to walk the way of obedience which means submitting to God through Jesus Christ. To work in obedience we have to see Jesus has who He was here on earth, a Human Being representing His father.
The life of Jesus Christ here on earth was not an easy one has how some of us are lead to believe. Jesus was a human being full blooded with a Kingdom lying on His head 2 Samuel 7 vs 12-16. Jesus overcame the burden yoke (disobedience) Genesis 3 vs 16-19 and invites us to join Him in the Freedom yoke Matt 11 vs 28-30 (obedience).
Learning from Jesus by reading the Bible will enable us a light burden because Jesus already showed us, how to overcome the heavy burden and weariness that will come our way through Trials and Temptations, Luke 22 vs 39-45, 4 vs 1-13. Following the life of Jesus Christ will give us not only blessings but a light and burden free life. There is one thing I have learned is that in walking in obedience I have to be childlike. So I emptied myself of all that I had known before and allow the Holy Spirit to teach me.
Obedience is the key to receive the Freedom that Jesus Christ our Savior has offered us; it is free and well rewarding. May God continue to bless and prosper you.
Hugs and blessings
