Jesus is Our Shelter

June 11, 2020

Are you going through a storm in your life? Jesus is our shelter. The Bible tells us many times not to fear. Cast all your cares on Jesus because he loves you and cares for you.

I Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Hello April

April 1, 2020

Many of us have to stay in during the month of April. This is a time that we can use to make us blossom! We can draw closer to God by reading the Bible more. We can encourage others with a phone call or note. We can have time to work on a hobby. Some people are using this time for doing projects around the house.

Take this time to look up to better things to come.

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
Psalms 16:11, KJV

Courage for today!

An Opportunity

March 17, 2020

“ When our biggest hopes and dreams don’t go as planned, there is an opportunity to get to the next level in our relationship with God.“

Psalm 73:28
But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.

This was a paragraph in my devotional that I read this morning. What a perfect sentence for today. Many of the things we planned are now cancelled or postponed. SOS Events Annual Meeting, Weddings, Sporting Events and even Funerals have to wait.

This is a disappointment, however, it is a great opportunity to draw closer to God. A time to have more time with immediate family. Time to organize and plan for the future.

Look to the Lord for wisdom, guidance and hope for now and the days ahead. Let us all pray for this virus to be under control and that the spread of the disease be stopped.

God’s Word For Today

Faith, Hope and Charity

February 11, 2020

Love is translated charity in the King James Bible. Love is charity. Love for God and love for others, the two great commandments.

Trust in the Lord at All Times

January 21, 2020

Sometimes we have situations in our lives that we run to God in prayer. It may be an accident, illness or even death of a loved one or friend. God answers prayer. He heals physically and we Praise Him. We don’t always understand when it seems like He didn’t hear us. Maybe it is bad news, cancer or worse, but He is there. He brings comfort and peace in the most difficult situations. We must trust Him not only in the good times but especially in the time of trial and heartbreak.

Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

 

Our Plans

March 20, 2019

Sometimes we make plans that seem very important to us at the time. Then something comes up, and those plans change. Maybe there’s an accident, a friend needs our help, or we cannot do it because we get sick. We are extremely disappointed and wonder, WHY?

God has allowed our plans to change. Remember, God loves us and He knows why. He may reveal the answer, but often He does not. That is when we need to trust Him all the more. He can turn our plans into His plan. The whole direction of our life can turn around in the change of just one of our plans. Are we trusting Him with our disappointments?

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Food for Thought

August 8, 2018

“We ought to be living as if Jesus died yesterday, rose this morning, and is coming back this afternoon.” – Adrian Rogers

For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?   I Thessalonians 2:19

You can be 100% sure you are going to heaven.

1) Admit you have sinned. Romans 3:23

2) Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9

3) Call upon the Lord.  Romans 10:13

Pray: Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner, I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins. I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you, Jesus. Amen

If you trusted Jesus as your Savior and would like to start growing in the Lord through some free Bible Studies, please contact SOS Events Ministry at info@sosevents.org

 

 

The Powerful Word

August 4, 2018
The Lord’s Word will not return void. The Word of God is alive and powerful.
Erwin W. Lutzer wrote a great illustration from the book Yesterday, Today, and Forever, The Word of God in the Life of His People for the verse, Jeremiah 23:29.
“An angry young man stood at the back of a train and threw the new Bible his mother gave him as far as he could. Yet months later he returned, repentant that he had mistreated God’s Book. He learned that the damaged Bible had fallen into the hands of a child who read it and was converted. Now both met as brothers in Christ; the one as a restored believer, the other as a newly converted twelve-year-old. What other book can soften the heart of an angry man and convert a child? Only the Bible.

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:29  (KJV)
