November 8th 2019 – Forsake Foolishness and Live

“Forsake foolishness and live, And go in the way of understanding.” (Proverbs 9:6)

None of us would like to say we are foolish at times. When we think of foolishness, we often dream up images of individuals who are acting in a childish manner or speaking in ignorance. While those may be foolish things, the Bible paints a more direct picture of foolishness. In essence, foolishness equals the rejection of God and His Word. After all, doesn’t (Psalm 14:1) say, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” This is at the root of foolishness.

To believe in God and His Word is the epitome of wisdom. To walk in light of God’s Truth is to experience a life of understanding. This leads to great blessing, and it all starts with our relationship with God. If we understand God and that His word is true, we will understand that we are sinners in need of a great Savior, Jesus Christ. This understanding brings us to faith in Christ which leads us into a relationship with God Himself. Imagine, broken human beings given the honor of being children of the God of all creation. I cannot imagine a greater blessing. And it all started by forsaking foolishness and walking in the way of understanding.

“The abundance of life is summed up by the quality of one’s relationship with the Lord.”

If you have never taken that step of faith, trusting in Jesus for salvation, you can pray this prayer.

Prayer:

Dear Jesus, I believe You died for me so that I could be forgiven. I believe You were raised from the dead so that I could have new life. I know I have done wrong things, and I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Give me the power to follow You all the days of my life. Amen.

October 15th 2019 – Seeing the Whole Picture

“When they arrived at Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man to Jesus, and they begged him to touch the man and heal him. Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village. Then, spitting on the man’s eyes, he laid his hands on him and asked, “Can you see anything now?” The man looked around. “Yes,” he said, “I see people, but I can’t see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around.” Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again, and his eyes were opened. His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly. Jesus sent him away, saying, “Don’t go back into the village on your way home.” (Mark 8:22-26)

Have you ever seen or heard of a photo mosaic? It’s a really large image made up of many, many smaller pictures. I always thought they were really cool, because each individual picture has a story of its own, but when you take a few steps back and look at the entire masterpiece, it is really something else.

God is in control. Always. He has a reason for everything, though it may not be (immediately, or ever) revealed to us. In this passage, I find it noteworthy that Jesus decided to heal the man’s sight in two steps (instead of immediate complete healing).

For one thing, Jesus’ simple question (“Do you see anything?”) is a chance for Him to test and challenge the man’s faith. Is the man bold enough to honestly answer Jesus and tell Him that he only sees “trees walking around?” Is the man’s faith great enough to trust that Jesus has the power of complete healing? (How would you respond?)

Also, I think that Jesus’ two-step healing of the man’s sight is representative of a situation we often find ourselves in. Many times, we think we see the whole picture. We think that we know everything that is going on. However, we sometimes find that what we are looking at is just one little frame in the huge mosaic masterpiece. Our vision is equivalent to seeing people as trees walking around. We think we see it all, but God has so, so much more in store. He has so much more that He wants to show us. Ask Him to reveal more of His desire and His heart to you today.

“Sometimes God lets you be in a situation that only He can fix so that you can see that He is the One who fixes it. Rest. He’s got it.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, fully open my eyes to your current condition–physical, spiritual, emotional, mental during this quiet time in Your presence. With this new sight and new life that You Lord have given to me, I ask you to give me eyes like yours, that you may see You at work everywhere, both on the micro and macro scale. When I feel like all I can see is vague shapes of you presence, I ask earnestly and boldly that You will reveal to me not only the bigger picture, but how my work can further Your kingdom. I love you Lord, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

October 14th 2019 – The Voice of God

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.” (Isaiah 30:21)

The sweetest sound in the entire world is the sound of our Father’s voice.  When God our Father spoke in days passed things happened, the world and the universe were created.  All of life that crawls on the earth, under the earth, in the sky, and in the water was created by His Word.

“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” (Hebrews 11:3)

What an amazing statement that the Creator made all that is visible by a Word.  The reason I bring this out is that He who has all this power in His voice, in His Words, speaks to us.  He wants to speak with us.  He wants to share His heart and help and guide us each and every day of our lives.  What assurance we have of our loving Father directing and guiding us as we listen to His voice speaking to us this day.

God is not silent.  I believe that He is constantly talking to our hearts, but many times we’re just to busy to listen and we miss out.  You know if I have a radio and I have it on the wrong station, then no matter what I do, I’m not going to hear what I want to hear, unless I take the time to adjust the station.

So many times in our lives we just need little adjustments to hear what the Father wants to say to our hearts.  I believe that if we will take the time to listen it could save us so many heartaches that we go through.

So take some time today and listen to what He wants to say to you. Listen to that still small voice speaking to your heart.  He will never let you down.  He is always there for you.

“Our priorities should be: recognizing the voice of God and responding to the voice of God.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Today I will listen to your voice as you guide me to go right or to go left. Father God you always have my best interest in mind. I trust you, and  can be rest assured that You will guide me for good this day. Thank you for allowing us to Hear Your Voice. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

October 13th 2019 -God Will Always Meet Our Needs

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

God promises to meet the needs of every one of His followers, but sometimes, it might seem like those needs are not being met. If this is the case, then we must evaluate ourselves, because without realizing it, we may be hindering the answer to our prayers. What might be the cause of our unmet needs?

An important thing to understand is that not everything you want is a need. When you need something, you have to have it. It’s essential to life, and you can’t live without it. When you want something, you wish for it, but you can live without it. If your needs don’t seem like they are being met, evaluate whether your request is a really a need or actually a want. Ask God to help you distinguish between what you desire and what is really essential to your life.

Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!” (Matthew 6:8)

God allows you to come before him and make any and all requests. Have you brought your request before the Lord? If not, you cannot expect to receive those things from Him. Also, be sure your motives are pure, because the Father does not reward selfishness.

“And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.” (James 4:3)

God has given each person certain abilities and talents to use. He has equipped you with the ability to do certain things that will help meet your needs. He will not do for you what you can already do for yourself. For example, you should work and provide for your family. God has made it so that you can, so don’t expect him to do it for you.

Sometimes we want things done in our own timing or in our own way and are not willing to wait on God. Don’t rush or try to force the Lord. Don’t tell Him how to meet your need. It will be done in His way and in His timing, not yours, but it will be done. Be patient, sometimes God will provide through others or in ways you don’t expect.

If you are a follower of Jesus, you have a Heavenly Father who is committed to meeting your needs. Jesus promised that if you believe that you will receive what you prayed for then it would be granted you. If God has confirmed He’ll meet your needs, then you can be confident that He will do it. If it doesn’t seem like God is working on your behalf, then pray.

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)

Ask God to show you where you are going wrong and to give you patience to wait on His timing, then trust God! He will meet your needs!

“It may be at the last minute or provided in a way that we have not considered, but He will always provide for our needs.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I love and praise you for this day, for my family, my dear friends and all of the blessings that you have poured into my life. You have always provided for me especially in the difficult times. You have always been faithful to me even when I have not to you. Today I ask that your presence will overwhelm us and refill us with Your Holy Spirit into every corner of our soul. I love You. In Jesus’ name Amen.

October 12th 2019 – God’s Word Is Alive!

“For the Word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” (Hebrews 4:12)

God’s Word is alive. It has God’s very life and ability within it. Just as people are alive, and animals are alive, and plants are alive, so is God’s Word. The difference is that God’s Word has the Creator of all these other things within it. It is full of power to set us free, to heal us, and to deliver us. His Word created the very ground that we’re standing on and the air that we’re breathing. His Word is Himself.

So no matter what comes at us in life, it is His Word that has the power to release us from every situation. God has declared it, therefore it has to happen. You see, God and His Word are one.  If God’s Word doesn’t work, then God doesn’t work.  But God’s Word does work as we work the Word.

Faith is what activates God’s Word and as we take His Word and get it deep within our hearts and then speak it with our mouth, it will come to pass.  God is not a man that He should lie.  If He said it, then He meant it.  Think of it like this, The Bible has the very DNA of God within its pages.  If I were to blow up a balloon, it has my DNA within it, so it is with the Bible, God has breathed Himself right into those pages that we hold in our hand.

So today, make a decision never to look at the Bible as just a book, but to look at it as if it were God the Creator standing right there and saying, “If I wrote it in there, you can have it”. Just believe it and say it with your mouth. Truly our prayer life would never be the same.

“We need to encourage people to feed on God’s Word—it is nourishment for the soul.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your Written Word, Thank you for giving us your Holy Spirit. I pray that as of this day forward, we never forget the Power (from God) that we posses as Your children. I can only imangine the sound of the mighty wind as you first breathed Your Holy Spirit into the Aspostles, the same Holy Spirit that we, Children of the Living God have in our very bodies right now. I pray that Your Holy Spirit be so visibly apparent in our lives from this day forward, that we radiate that we are Your children. May we never forget that we posses Your very DNA in our blood, because you created us and breathed life into us. We are made in your Image, that we can do all things through You. From this day forward, may we start each day Claiming Victory over the strongholds in our lives, Claiming Victory over the very enemy that tries to opress us and to distort the truth. Today and everyday forward I will never forget that I am a Child of the ONE TRUE GOD! 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.

September 26th 2019 – Your Body, His Temple

“I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship.” (Romans 12:1)

“When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and are baptized you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38). God’s Spirit actually makes it’s dwelling inside of you. You then become a “temple” designed for the worship of our God. It is a sanctuary for service in His Kingdom.

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Above the Apostle Paul tells us that our bodies ARE the temple of the Holy Spirit. Paul was talking about sexual immorality when he wrote that verse to the Christians of Corinth. But the verse has a broader meaning. It means you don’t want to mess up the temple with hidden sins of any kind. It means that you don’t want to desecrate the temple with any foreign substances like tobacco, alcohol, drugs, or overeating. It means we want it to look nice so we take care of it by cleaning it, clothing it modestly, and making it presentable. It means that we take everything out that prevents us from serving and worshiping God and honoring him.

So let’s do our best to take care of the bodies that God gave us, let’s make a comfortable place for the Spirit to live, work and guide us.

“Our bodies were created in the image of God. They are a gift from our heavenly father to allow us to experience mortality and to strive to become more like Him. This knowledge should influence the way we treat our bodies, how we feel about the Heavenly Father and ourselves.  When we treat our bodies as a Temple of God, we can attain physical, emotional and spiritual blessings.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I praise your Holy Name. My life is yours…a temple for your Spirit… a place of worship 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week. Please help me to clean up and make it a presentable and fit place for service in your kingdom. Thank You for the precious gift of salvation. Thank You for making a way for me to be cleansed of all my sins. Lord, if I have sinned against You or defiled my body today, forgive me and help me live for You in all I do. Father, I stand on Your Truth in 1 John 1:9 that says if I confess my sins, You will cleanse me of all unrighteousness. Wash me clean and use me for Your kingdom today. I pray these things in the name of your Son and my Savior, Jesus. Amen.

September 20th 2019 – Follow Through

“I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” (Luke 24:49)

Knowing He was about to depart, Jesus left His disciples with a final command: stay in Jerusalem, and wait…for the promise.

Of the thousands who had witnessed His miraculous ministry and heard His amazing teaching, and the hundreds that had actually seen Him after the resurrection, we read in Acts that only 120 stayed until the promise arrived. But these 120 were steadfast. They waited the full term…

What would have happened if they had left after the 4th day? Or the 6th day? Or the 9th day? They would have missed the promise and the amazing blessing that came with it. But those 120 believers stayed, they stayed and pressed in until the Holy Spirit came!

Do you want the fullness of the Spirit in your life? Continue pressing in. Wait with relentless faith and patience. Perseverance is often the critical factor in receiving the promises of God. Our Lord will fulfill every good promise in His perfect time.

“He is the wind of heaven that fills our sails with the power to live for God and be witnesses for Him in the world!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I give praises to you this very day for all that you have given me. You always know the exact time to answer my prayers. Thank you for the life I am able to live ever since I met You Jesus. I love You Lord. In Jesus’ name Amen

September 16th 2019 – When In The Valley

“though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalms 23:4)

We see in the verese just before Psalm 23:4 we read that the Shepherd leads, guides, helps, and loves us.  Now, in this verse, it changes from the Shepherd’s actions and love for us, to our own actions.  You see, in life there are going to be times when we don’t listen so that we get ourselves in places we shouldn’t be.  Here it’s called “the valley of the shadow of death”.

Have you ever had times like that?  You find that the grass isn’t green and the stream is dirty and you say, “how did I get here?”  You see that it was through your own decisions, or you didn’t take the time to listen to the Shepherd’s voice, that you opened doors that should have stayed shut.

Even in these times, even when we mess up, the Great Shepherd doesn’t leave us.  No! He promised us that He would never leave us or forsake us.  Never means never and here we see the same promise.  I will fear no evil, why?   FOR YOU ARE WITH ME!  What a promise.  When we mess up, we need to ‘fess up and He, the Great Shepherd, forgives and restores.

Even when we open doors to the evil one, our Shepherd takes out His mighty rod and grabs hold of us with His wonderful staff and brings great comfort to our lives.  What security, what comfort, what hope we have because of our amazing Jesus.

So take heart today that there is no sin too strong that the blood of Jesus can’t wash away.  Rest in His loving arms and hear His heartbeat as you lay your head upon His chest.  Know that He loves you and will always protect you against anything that the enemy might bring against you.  He’ll even protect you when you open a door that you shouldn’t have.

“I will fear no evil because You are with me Lord!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the blood of Jesus that has washed me white as snow.  I thank You that no matter what comes against me or even when I’m walking in the valley, You are there to comfort and to restore.  What a God I serve. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen..

Don’t walk through the valley alone. If you have not accepted Jesus, or would like to take this time to reconnect with Him, Please Click Here.

September 4th 2019 – The Lord’s Return is Near

“But don’t forget this, dear friends. . . . He isn’t really being slow about his promised return, even though it sometimes seems that way. But he is waiting, for the good reason that he is not willing that any should perish, and he is giving more time for sinners to repent.” (2 Peter 3:8-9)

Look around us,  everything is changing so quickly, there are hurricanes and floods, massive fire storms and earth quakes, wars and rumours of wars right before our eyes, and happening at such an alarming rate. Sinful man is out of control! If you have ever read the Holy Bible,  it should come as no suprise how this story goes.

Many people are asking, “Where is history heading?” A careful student of the Bible will be led to see that God controls the clock of destiny. Amid the world’s confusion, God’s omnipotent hand moves, working out His unchanging plan and purpose. Jesus Christ is coming to earth again. It is Christ who is in control, and He will determine the outcome.

George Whitefield, a great English evangelist, said, “I am waiting daily for the coming of the Son of God.” But he did not sit down and do nothing. He lived out the rest his life proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.” (1 Corinthians 15:52)

“Be ready, Jesus is coming back soon.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, deliver us from slothfulness, keep us  quickened to deliver Your message of salvation to everyone who will listen, until that day we die or You return again. We thank you for Your love and presence,  Lord protect us in this time so that we may continue share Your gosple until the very end. We praise You for the day when Jesus returns. Amen.

Ask Jesus into your life.

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.
