I Shouldn't Have a 'Plan B' Ready, I've Been a "Hold Grudges Against Others Christian", As the Angels Which Are in Heaven Posts

Since Bible Passages That Can Influence Your Life, is now on line through individual posts, I am now putting several links together for each post. I found groupings of three posts worked well for anyone interested in using these for a Bible study group.  Debbie Seiling

And Jesus, answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.  Mark, Chapter 11, verses 22-24.

This reminds me of how I ask God to take care of me, but I’m really establishing a plan in my mind of how to handle the situation or I’m continuing to worry about it.  It’s like I’m saying, “God, I want You to handle this situation but just in case You don’t take care of me, I will have a ‘Plan B’ ready or worry until it’s resolved.”  It’s just like telling God I don’t really trust Him to take care of me.  I need to be much more aware of displaying total trust in God to take care of my needs, concerns and my family.

And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive your trespasses.  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.  Mark, Chapter 11, verses 25-26.

This passage makes me think I’m a “Hold Grudges Against Others Christian,” because I remember insensitive or hurtful things people have done to me.  God doesn’t want me to hold onto these feelings.  I’m sure I have done my share of insensitive and hurtful things to others in my life.  I sure don’t want to be judged by God with the same harsh standards that I impose on others.

Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.  Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.  And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.  And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.  In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them?  for the seven had her to wife.  And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God?  For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.  Mark, Chapter 12, verses 19-25.
This was really interesting to me, especially because I have remarried and my first husband was not a very nice person.  This is a relief, because now I know we won’t be in heaven joined with our past or present spouses. Click on the Post title to read a related Bible passage.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.
