March 16th 2018 – God’s Word Revives

“Therefore, I will always remind you about these things–even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught.” (2 Peter 1:12)

I find it completly amazing how the Word of God can revitalize our hearts. You can be going into a dive of doubt and fear when someone will comw along and quote a scripture verse that suddenly pulls you out of your discouragement. No matter how long you have been a Christian, you need to be reminded of spiritual truths.

That is why Peter wrote, “Therefore, I will always remind you about these things–even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught. And it is only right that I should keep on reminding you as long as I live” (2 Peter 1:12–13).

When we lose sight of God’s spiritual truths, the His living word of the bible corrects us. It revives us. “The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul.” (Psalm 19:7)

There were two discouraged disciples on the Emmaus Road, they had recently lost all hope after Jesus was crucified. They didn’t realize that He had risen. Then Jesus began walking with them, but they didn’t recognize Him. He began to open the Word of God to them and pointed them to all of the Scriptures that alluded to His death and sacrifice. Afterward they said, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32).

God’s living word revives us. It brings us back to life again. If you are not interested in being revived, if you have no interest in being transformed, if you don’t want to grow spiritually, and if you don’t want direction or purpose in life, then don’t read the Bible.

But if you wish that your life had focus and purpose and direction, then start reading it. The living word of God revives us.

“The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy.” (Psalm 19-7)

“God’s word is perfect and will revive your soul.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your written word, a word that is alive and revives us! Thank you for giving us your Holy Spirit. I pray that as of this day forward, I never forget the truths, promises and healing that we receive as Your children from reading Your living word. I pray that Your word and the Holy Spirit be so visibly apparent in our lives 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. 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!

Seeking Jesus in your life?

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.

Please take a moment to contact me, I would love to pray with you personally for this wonderful new journey you are on. roblavallee@gmail.com to

March 5th 2018 – A Divine Reminder

“Therefore, I will always remind you about these things-even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught. And it is only right that I should keep on reminding you as long as I live.” (2 Peter 1:12-13)

Nearing the end of his life, the apostle Peter continued to sound the alarm for believers. In the book of 2 Peter, he spends a lot of time warning against false teachers while also reminding believers to not forget the life-changing power of the Gospel. In fact, in the verses above, Peter mentions his desire to remind the church three different times. Why would Peter be so passionate about reminding believers about the Truth? We forget.

As Christians, our lives have been changed by our faith in Jesus. In God’s sight, we are perfect. While here on earth, we are growing more and more like Jesus every day, yet we are still human. We still allow doubts to creep in. We battle with forgetting about God’s goodness, His love and His power. This is why we need a constant reminder.

Have you ever wondered what the big urgency has been to do away with cash and use credit and debit? This country was founded on biblical principles. The founding fathers of understood the following verse in (1 Timothy 6:10) “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.” They thought it to be wise to put a biblical reminder “In God We Trust” on all forged coins and printed money produced by the United States.

This is why reading the bible and being in church regularly are vital to the believer. We need to constantly be reminded of God and His precious promises.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your goodness and grace. This morning, I ask that “anew” Your Holy Spirit to fill me up and give me the power to live for You. Father, use Your Word, Your Spirit and other believers as reminders of Your goodness and Your love for me. Also, help me to be a reminder to others of Who You are. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Do you trust Jesus enough with your life? You should, Jesus died on the cross for you and me. He loves us and wants to help us. If you have not asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior don’t miss out on your destination to paradise! please click here 4 Simple Steps to Jesus
