October 7th 2019 – Eternal Security

“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.” (John 10:28)

There is a movement in Christianity that teaches and beleives that we as children of God, can loose our salvation if we should back slide or turns back to our old sinful habbits.

The Christian should never think or speak lightly of unbelief of what God Promises. For a child of God to mistrust the Father’s love, truth, and faithfulness, must be terribly displeasing to God. How we must grieve Him by doubting His upholding grace? It is contrary to every promise of God’s precious Word that you should even think that you will ever be forgotten or left to perish! If that could possibly happen, how could He be true at all? He Himself has said, “Can a woman forget to have compassion on her nursing child? Even if she forgets, still I will never forget you.” (Isaiah 49:15)

What is the value of His promise that, ”Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you (Isaiah 54:10)

Where is the truth of Christ’s words, “I give eternal life to My sheep, and they will never die; and no man will pluck them out of My hand… or out of My Father’s hand?”

Where would the doctrines of grace be? They would be all disproved if one child of God would be lost. Where would the veracity of God be– His honor, His power, His grace, His covenant, His oath– if any of those for whom Christ has died and who have put their trust in Him should ever be cast away?

Tell those unbelieving fears to go! And put on your beautiful garments. Remember it is sinful to doubt His Word, since He has promised that you will never die. Let the eternal life within you express itself in confident rejoicing.

“God promises that we will be  Safe and Secure in His presence. We will in fact have an Eternal Security if we are a born again believer of Jesus Christ.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank you for walking with me and giving me peace. I surrender each day to you, and ask that you will use me to help others get to know you. Please continue to mold me into the person you have destined me to become. Thank you for for the love you have personally shown me. Thank you for the Faith you give me each day. I pray that the Holy Spirit will immediately reveil the false teachings within the church, may the leaders be corrected with love who misinterpreted your word.  May thier congregation  experience healing and not fall away. We love you Lord!  I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

October 4th 2019 – God Still Heals

“to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,” (1 Corinthians 12:9)

What do you think about when you hear the words “healing” or “miracle”? Depending on how you grew up, these words may spark memories. Some of us may remember the charismatic preachers on television or even roadside tent revivals. Even though they may have involved miraculous signs and wonders, others may simply reject the notion that miracles even occur today.

Regardless of what we have seen or heard, we must always remember to ask the question, “What does the bible say?” You see, what we believe is not dependent on our opinion or upbringing, but fully relies on what God has revealed to us through His Word.

As we look into the glorious and perfect Word of the Lord, we see that He has given us His Spirit to help spread the Gospel and minister to one another. In 1 Corinthians 12, we see that Paul clearly states that the Holy Spirit can empower us with the gift of healings and miracles. While these can refer to many things, we must understand that we have the chance to be part of one of the greatest healings of all time.

What could that be you ask? Simply put, it’s the dead coming to life. When we share with others the Gospel and they respond, they go from death to life, from condemnation to forgiveness, from being a child of the adversary to a child of the living God. Maybe you’ve never experienced that supernatural healing. God desires to forgive your sins and make you new. All you have to do is come to Him. Are you ready for healing?

“Don’t ever forget that God still heals. He heals us spiritually, physically and emotionally”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I know that I have done wrong in my life and I ask that You forgive me. Lord, I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and that He rose again. I come to You today and ask that You would create in me a clean heart and make me new. Fill me with Your Spirit and help me to walk with You every day of my life. I love You Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

October 1st 2019 – Love Song

I am continually amazed and grateful for the many ways God demonstrates His love to us. During my devotional time, I began to make a list of them and want to share them with you. I pray that you’ll be blessed as you are reminded of His great love.

He does not change. “I the Lord do not change” (Malachi 3:6)

His love is always sure. Seasons change, people change, the world is changing, but God never changes. We can rely on Him.

“Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.” (Psalm 36:5)

He is faithful. God is not moody or fickle. We are. People will love you for a while and then they don’t. But God is not like that. He sticks with you.

Whenever He asks us to obey Him, He also provides everything we need.”

“You can trust the One who calls you to do that for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:24)

He is our protector. He is our shield. Our “always there” protector.

“So our hope is in the Lord. He is our help, our shield to protect us.” (Psalm 33:20)

It is so comforting to know that everything that comes our way has to go through “the shield around us” before it touches us.

He is always thinking about us.

“How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many thoughts turn towards me.” (Psalm 139:17)

This is one of the neatest things. When you think about it–there are over 6 billion people in the world and He still thinks of you and me constantly. He is able to give us His undivided attention.

He is always with you. For He Himself has said,

“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

He is never to busy for us. He never goes away, or takes breaks or a vacation.

When we are in trouble and think we are going under, we can be encouraged because,

“Underneath are His everlasting arms.” (Deuteronomy 33:27)

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I praise You for the amazing love You have shown me. Help me to grasp this love so that I will be equipped to love others in the same way. Strip me of any excuses and use me to reach others with the love of Jesus. We are so grateful for Your presence and direction in our lives.  Thank you, for loving and caring for us so much. Help us to love You more than we could ever comprehend. Thank you for your written word, the Bible is your love song. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“Love will find a way. A lack of love will find an excuse.”

 Don’t have Jesus in your life? Don’t put off Experiencing His Ultimate Love now.

Jesus Christ says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20)

The Bible promises eternal life to all who receive Christ: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:11-13)

If you have not asked Jesus into your life you can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith through prayer.

Prayer is just talking with God. He knows your heart, so don’t worry about getting your words just right. Here is a suggested prayer to guide you:

Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Saviour and Lord. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

If you have done this, then congratulations! (Luke 15:7) says that when one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Saviour the angels rejoice. So there’s a party going on in heaven right now over your decision! Remember this date as your “second birthday,” the day you were born into a new life in Christ! You have God’s Word that He answered your prayer.

If you prayed this prayer please  Click Here and let us know.. We would love to pray for you and with you. Congratulations and welcome to Gods family.

September 21st 2019 – Jesus Is My Friend

“Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence Him. With them alone He shares the secrets of His promises.” (Psalms 25:14)

As children we used to run around and say, “I know a secret, I know a secret!” Well God has special things that He holds for special people. Our Father wants to reveal them to those whose hearts are right with Him. You see a secret is shared with close friends.  I don’t go and share my inner thoughts with just anybody, No, I share them with true friends. And you know what? Those that have a respect and love for the Father.  Those that give Him that special place in their hearts are friends of God and He shares His inner thoughts with them.

Jesus said that He doesn’t call us servants anymore, but He calls us friends.  So as a friend of God are we taking time each day to listen to His voice as He reveals His mysteries to us? God’s secrets are revealed to those who reverence Him.  They are revealed to those who love and respect Him.  To those whose hearts are for Him. God is not holding back from us, but He is looking for those who will take what He says to heart and use it to bless others.  He has a treasure of wisdom for us and He wants to pour it out to us.

So today take time to tell your Heavenly Father how much you love Him and how special He is to you and then watch and see how many things are revealed to you.  Take a few minutes even now and express your love to the One who loves you with such an intense love that He would send His one and only Son, to wash away all of your sins.

“While friends and family can fail us, Jesus will always be your most trusted friend!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me and calling me your friend. Thank you for all of the times we cried together and laughed together. I and so greatful for you presence in my life. Please help me be a better friend to not only you but to others. May they always see you in me… I love you Lord.. in Your precious name Amen.

Need a friend that will always be there? Click here to meet Jesus!

September 17th 2019 – Eternal Reservation

“Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:20)

Jesus, in this verse, is telling us not to rejoice just because spirits are subject to us, but to rejoice because our names are written in heaven.  Have you ever made a reservation for dinner at a restaurant or maybe at an event and you get there and you tell them your name and they say yes, you have reservations for two.

Well this scripture is saying just about the same thing. Jesus went before us and because we have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior we now have reservations in heaven.  We go to the restaurant or hotel and they open their book to see if our name is in there, and the Bible says that God does the same thing.

On that day, He will open the Book of Life and say to us, yes, you have believed on the Name of my Son. Yes, you have received the gift of salvation, the gift that only Jesus can give. Come, enter into my presence and enjoy the reservation that has been set from the foundations of the world.

I don’t know about you, but for me, I’m going to dance and lift my hands and say, “Thank you Jesus, for going to the cross for me and shedding your blood for me. Thank you for your ultimate sacrifice for my sins and because of what you have done for me, I will now live with you for all eternity.”

If this is Good News for you today, think of someone you can share this great truth with. Today, your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Today you have have a eternal reservation.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, because of Your sacrifice on the cross for me. I have assurance because I believe in You and have confessed in You Jesus as my Lord and Savior. My name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and I have my eternal reservation for heaven. Thank you for your endless pursuit of me Jesus.. I love and praise You. In you precious name.. Amen.

September 15th 2019 – What Are You Worth?

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

A priest was having dinner with a family that had adopted a small child through the church. The family had composed of a father, mother, and a 10-year-old boy. After dinner, the adults discussed the son and the adoption: The Father said “The child was just a small poor helpless orphan when we first saw him. He was dirty and in rags, he smelled. And his shoes-they were the worst of all. The uppers were ripped and the soles had holes. We gave him new clothes, but kept those shoes to remind him how bad off he was before us. Whenever the boy complains or misbehaves, I get those shoes out to help him remember just where he came from.

His father had told both priest and boy, just how much he was worth to his father. Throughout this child’s life,  he was reminded time and time again. He also was told that he probabally would never amount to anything. I don’t need to tell you how bad this little boy was hurt or how it affected his adult life.

What are you worth?

In the eyes of the world, we are probably not worth very much. When we breathe our last, our passing won’t be marked by half-mast flags, elaborate funeral corteges, and a multitude of speakers to sing our praises.

It’s not likely that Jewish media will run a cover story or that CNN or FOX will break in with a special news bulletin. There is quite a contrast between the way others perceive our value and the way God loves us.

So that we might be saved, our Heavenly Father sent His holy Son on a mission of mercy. Born in Bethlehem, Jesus became one of us. Ignored by those He had come to save and rejected by many, He spent every day of His life for us.

But Jesus did more than live for us. He also suffered and died for us. Carrying all the sins we had committed; He was arrested, abused, condemned, and crucified. Jesus made this great sacrifice all because the Father wished to call us His children and adopt us into the family of God.

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (1 John 3:1)

So what are you worth?

“See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.” (Isaiah 49:16)

Jesus shows you. The Father tells you. You are worth the life of God’s own Son!

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, help me to be able to comprehend the incredible value You place on my life. I receive the love gift of Your Son Jesus as the price You paid in order to purchase my redemption. I acknowledge that my worth does not come from what I do or where I came from, but simply because of Whose I am. Because of Jesus, I am accepted as Your child and am Your most treasured possession. In the name of Your beloved Son Jesus’ I pray, Amen.

God loves and wants only the best for His children.. If you have not accepted Jesus, or would like to take this time to reconnect with Him, Please Click Here.

September 13th 2019 – Unlikely Character

“Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him.” (1 Corinthians 15:8)

Anyone who has read through the bible knows that God really does choose the most unlikely people. There is Moses, who murdered an Egyptian. King David, commonly known as a man after God’s own heart, who committed adultery and murder. Then there was Paul, (known as Saul during that time) who was an intelligent man who knew the Hebrew Scriptures and had a passion for God. The problem was that he did not believe Jesus was the Messiah. Because of this, he led the way in the persecution of everyone who called themselves a follower of Jesus.

I’m certain that had we been given the choice about Paul, we probably would have asked God to remove him completely from the equation. After all, with Paul out of the picture, persecution would slowly fade and the church would begin to grow. It may sound good, but God had an even greater plan in mind. Instead of removing Paul from the equation, Jesus changed the equation completely. He changed Paul’s life and transformed him into one of the greatest missionaries this world has ever seen. This man that hated Jesus was now in love with His Savior to the point of giving his life for Him. Because of Paul, we have much of the New Testament and a witness to the power of the Gospel to change a life forever.

“God often chooses the unlikeliest characters as His trophies of grace to reach and teach others about His love and plan of salvation.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I praise You Father for Your love and grace. Thank You for choosing the unlikely characters for Your work. It speaks so wonderfully of Your grace. Lord, I know that I too am an unlikely character, but I pray that You would use me in mighty ways today and everyday, thank you for loving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

September 12th 2019 – Forgiveness

“Jacob looked up and there was Esau, coming with his four hundred men; so he divided the children among Leah, Rachel and the two female servants. He put the female servants and their children in front, Leah and her children next, and Rachel and Joseph in the rear. He himself went on ahead and bowed down to the ground seven times as he approached his brother. But Esau ran to meet Jacob and embraced him; he threw his arms around his neck and kissed him. And they wept.” (Genesis 33:1-4)

When reading this passage, one might think, “That is so nice. The brothers are excited to see each other.” But the truth about the entire matter is that Jacob betrayed Esau in a mighty way. Jacob took everything from Esau – his birthright and his blessing. And after that betrayal, Jacob hit the road and never looked back.

Have you ever wondered what thought processes Esau went through to get to this place of forgiveness? The Bible doesn’t mention how Esau forgave Jacob for his betrayal. We just know he did. We know he did because the first time Esau saw Jacob, he ran for him and embraced him. Esau was able to forgive him and not kill him like we thought he would.

Esau forgave Jacob, ran to him and embraced him before Jacob could even say, “I am so sorry for what I did to you.

Why can’t we do this? Why do we hold onto hurt?

Spend some time today with the Father and ask Him to reveal to you anything that keeps you from offering forgiveness to another.

Do not carry baggage from people who have wronged you.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank you for all that you have done to prepare me for this season of life. As you know, I have also been in Jacobs shoes, ashamed because of something I have said or did to someone. Our natural human reaction is often to turn and head in the other direction instead of facing the person we have wronged. I am greatful for your unconditional love. I thank you for the presence of your Holy Spirit in my life to encourage me to do what is righteous in your name. I pray that you continue to not only work in my life but continue to work on the hearts of my adversaries. I love you Lord, In Jesus’ name, Amen.

September 5th 2019 – More Than You Could Imagine

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20)

Think of your most extravagant thought and then try to think of something way beyond your wildest dreams. Even if you have a vivid imagination, there will still be a limit to what you are able to comprehend. However, your Father does not have the same limitations that you have. He says that He is able to do immeasurably MORE than anything that you could ask or imagine.

The sky is the limit as far as He is concerned. He knows no earthly barriers or boundaries that will keep Him from fulfilling the best plans and purposes for His children.

We can choose to live our lives in the confines of our own natural understanding and perceived limitations, or we can choose to believe what God has promised for us. That He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us! Our Father is the biggest, strongest and most wonderful Dad in the universe and He has promised that He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we ask or imagine!

“God is able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I know that You love me and You have a plan for me that is immeasurably more than I could ever possibly imagine. Thank You for giving me Your precious Holy Spirit who is at work in me to fulfill all that You have purposed for me. Help me to believe You for greater things in my life than my own human limitations can comprehend. Thank You for the truth in a world that has become full of lies. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

God has made it possible for you to know Him and experience His amazing love for you. Click here  to discover how you can find peace with God.

August 25th 2019 – Hurting People Hurt

“Did I commit sin in humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you free of charge?” (2 Corinthians 11:7 )

Can you imagine having the apostle Paul as a pastor? When we think of Paul we think of the “perfect pastor” whom everyone loved and yet, (2 Corinthians 11) paints a different story. In this powerful, yet sad chapter, Paul is forced to defend himself against people in the church who were coming against him.

There were those in the church in Corinth who were saying that Paul was only in it for the money (even though he did not receive anything from them), and there were people in that church that saw him as a lesser teacher because he did not demand that they pay him. In the end, Paul could not win. Why did Paul NOT receive funds from them? Because they acted like they didn’t want to give, like they couldn’t afford to give, and acted like they shouldn’t have to give. They could have sown into Paul’s ministry and shared the benefits and blessings but because of their selfishness, they missed a glorious opportunity. Paul knew this and yet, he loved them anyway. He spoke Truth in love, hoping that they would see the Truth. So, it is with our lives. There are times we will speak the Truth in love and others will not listen. If they don’t, love them through it and allow the Lord to use your gentle witness to impact their life forever.

“You can’t win with some people but don’t stop trying to with others.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, There are people in my life that I struggle with. No matter how hard I try or how much love I freely give to them, they continually cause me to wonder why. Help me to be a loving witness to them. Give me opportunities to share the Truth in love while being sensitive and patient with the work of Your Spirit. Also, if I am the issue, please help me to be aware of it so that I can bring it to You. Thank You for allowing me to continue this ministry without ever being paid or asking for donations. Thank You for keeping me through the trials when people write hateful things and attack me verbally for sharing your truth on this site.  I love You Lord.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Invitation:

Jesus, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in Jesus’ precious name Amen.
