Fear Not

Isaiah 41:13 (KJV) For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Salt and Light

February 12, 2017

Matthew 5 is about being distinct in character. How a Christian is to be clearly different from this world, noticeably different in a good way. This particular teaching was coming from the mouth of Jesus Himself. He not only said how we are to be distinct, but when we are, we are blessed with a true happiness & peace that only God gives. Plus He tells what we would obtain for being distinct. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Christ urges us to be a good example. I challenge you to read Matthew chapter 5 and be determined to be distinct in this world and watch for your blessings.

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Make It Personal

February 7, 2017

Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.”

In life, we need the help of Christ to stay focused, so make His Word personal. Say the verse above, Colossians 3:17 by using your name and personal pronouns. An example is below.

Whatever (your name) does in word or in deed, let me do all in the name of Jesus and give thanks to God my Father through Jesus.

Transformation

February 6, 2017

Being willing to let the Lord change us is an important part of our growth. In Romans 12:1-2, God tells us three things on how we can partner with Him for internal and external change. 1) Present your life, your work and your ministry to Him, 2) Don’t follow the pattern of the world, as you might miss out on the radical changes He wants for you and 3) Renew your mind. This can be done by staying in the Scriptures and praying.

Romans 12:1-2 (KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.

Faith

Faith in Jesus can turn stumbling blocks into steppingstones.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Little Children

November 14, 2015

Matthew 19:13
 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.Matthew 19:14  But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

SOS Events has many events where children make decisions for Christ. One of the testimonies from a 7 year old little girl, written on the back of her decision card:

“I asked Jesus to come into my heart and forgive me for my sins.”

Children many times understand and accept Jesus because they have unwavering faith.

Faith

April 27, 2015

“Faith is like radar which sees through the fog, the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.” Corrie ten Boom

Corrie must have had many days when her faith would be tested and she could not see what was ahead. In World War II her family protected hundreds of Jews from death by hiding them in a hidden room in her bedroom. Eventually the hiding place was detected and Corrie was sent to a German concentration camp. But she never lost her faith in God.

After the war she returned to her home and helped concentration camp survivors get rehabilited into a regular life. She wrote many books and became a sought after speaker especially in Christian gatherings. She moved to the United States and died on her 91st birthday in California.

If you feel like you are living in a fog, not able to see what God has planned for you, be encouraged, God has a plan and propose for your life and whatever your circumstances God will bring you through. He sees and will guide you with His eye.

Psalms 32:7-8 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
