God’s Smiles

August 18, 2017

1 Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

Happiness or Joy?

August 16, 2017

The definition of happy in Webster’s Dictionary: feeling pleasure and enjoyment because of your life, situation, etc.                               Happiness depends on what is happening around you, so if the situation changes it can be lost.

Joy according to Webster : a source or cause of great happiness : something or someone that gives joy to someone                      True joy is inward, a gift given to the Christian by God. Joy continues through all circumstances and does not depend on what is happening around you and it is permanent.

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

Confused?

August 15, 2017

GOD is the author of peace. GOD is not the author of confusion. The answer is to draw close to God through Bible reading and prayer. Also, seek godly counsel from a trusted Christian, pastor or friend.

1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Hang in There

August 11, 2017

Have you ever felt like you are hanging on with no help in sight? Whatever the trial or situation that makes you feel that way, there is good news for you as a Christian. We have a someone who is right there with us. His name is Jesus. He is the One who will save us. Our helper, deliverer and friend. Call out to Him in prayer.

Psalms 18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Home Sweet Home

August 9, 2017

Have you ever been away from home for awhile. Vacation, business trip or travel. Then it is time to go “home”. What great anticipation. You may live in a mansion or a small cottage, but whatever the property it is still home. As Christians we should have the same love and anticipation for our heavenly home, Heaven. Waiting for us there is Jesus, our loved ones who have gone on before us, and wonders we cannot even imagine. Jesus said:

John 14:2-3 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Take Down A Wall

July 13, 2017

Can a problem ever be good? Yes, when The space you have is too small for workers at SOS Events ministry. Our faithful Senior Servants come once a month to help us get out our newsletter. The group gets larger every month for which we are very thankful. The solution is to take down a wall to enlarge the space. It reminds me that sometimes we have a wall in our heart that may keep blessings out of our lives. It may be a relationship with a family member or friend. It may be some sin that is keeping us from our fellowship with God. If you have put up a wall that needs to be torn down, do it. You will be amazed that your problem has turned into a blessing.

Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Be A Blessing

June 21, 2017

There is an old chorus “Make Me A Blessing”. When you are a blessing to others by a phone call, text message, email, note or visit, you will find that not only do you give a blessing but you are the one who has been greatly blessed. The most wonderful blessing you can give anyone is to lead that person to Jesus.

Hebrews 13:16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
1

Out in the highways and byways of life,

  Many are weary and sad;

Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,

  Making the sorrowing glad.

 Refrain

 Make me a blessing, make me a blessing,

Out of my life may Jesus shine;

Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray,

  Make me a blessing to someone today.

2

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,

  Tell of His pow’r to forgive;

Others will trust Him if only you prove

  True, every moment you live.

3

Give as ’twas given to you in your need,

  Love as the Master loved you;

Be to the helpless a helper indeed,

  Unto your mission be true.

The Cross

June 16, 2017

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Are You Humble?

June 11, 2017

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

God Answers Prayer

February 28, 2017

God answers prayer. When you pray do you expect God to answer? Have you been obedient to His word? Do you take time with Him daily?

God loves you if you are born again into His family, He will answer.  We love to give gifts to our children. He loves to give to us, as long as we pray in His will. When the answer comes give Him the Praise and Glory.

If you have something that you would like the staff of SOS Events staff to pray for send the request to info@sosevents.org and we will pray for you.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
