“When you allow God’s Will and purpose for your life to override your own personal feelings of selfishness and entitlements of choice, blessings will flow from you to others you meet, especially your family.” ~ Jon Barnes
God’s love flows through you and what you do for others is a spiritual blessing that can last for eternity. The fruitful few that will be allowed into Heaven will do the Will of God by following the instructions and commandments of Love. Understanding is made clear each time you step into God’s presence of love, peace, and joy.
The spiritual battle of the heart, body, and soul supernaturally regulates and rules the physical steps in our lives.The hand of God is guiding you at every turn and you count all of your experiences as joy, because of God’s hand, not your own hand. Count your obedience as joy, because God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek His ways, wisdom, and works of faith to implement into their daily lives.
It is better to die standing up with God in your faith than to stand against God in your foolishness and lies. Many people will believe their own lies and not the Word of God, allowing their self-deception to take them to hell. The truth of love is simple, direct, truthful, and honest when we live by faith and not by sight.
Can others see and follow the flow of God’s hand on your mature lifestyle of obedience and simplicity in God?

1 Samuel 27
David among the Philistines
27 But David kept thinking to himself, “Someday Saul is going to get me. The best thing I can do is escape to the Philistines. Then Saul will stop hunting for me in Israelite territory, and I will finally be safe.”
2 So David took his 600 men and went over and joined Achish son of Maoch, the king of Gath. 3 David and his men and their families settled there with Achish at Gath. David brought his two wives along with him—Ahinoam from Jezreel and Abigail, Nabal’s widow from Carmel. 4 Word soon reached Saul that David had fled to Gath, so he stopped hunting for him.
5 One day David said to Achish, “If it is all right with you, we would rather live in one of the country towns instead of here in the royal city.”
6 So Achish gave him the town of Ziklag (which still belongs to the kings of Judah to this day),7 and they lived there among the Philistines for a year and four months.
8 David and his men spent their time raiding the Geshurites, the Girzites, and the Amalekites—people who had lived near Shur, toward the land of Egypt, since ancient times. 9 David did not leave one person alive in the villages he attacked. He took the sheep, goats, cattle, donkeys, camels, and clothing before returning home to see King Achish.
10 “Where did you make your raid today?” Achish would ask.
And David would reply, “Against the south of Judah, the Jerahmeelites, and the Kenites.”
11 No one was left alive to come to Gath and tell where he had really been. This happened again and again while he was living among the Philistines. 12 Achish believed David and thought to himself, “By now the people of Israel must hate him bitterly. Now he will have to stay here and serve me forever!”
