STAND IN FAITH

God is not like a microwave: instant results! Sometimes the answer comes quickly, but many times there is a period of waiting that follows our prayers. That is when we must stand in FAITH believing that God heard our prayer, which was based on God’s Word and the answer is on the way. While we are standing, many times our closest friend or family member will try to talk us out the prayer. If that doesn’t work, then our own mind will begin to doubt and question our prayer. Do not let any person or the devil, using doubts and fears, take away your faith while you are standing. God is on His throne! His Word stands! All is well.

I AM THAT I AM

We are all making the journey through life. Sometimes it seems that instead of walking we are crawling or else we are trying to get up again after falling down or stepping into a hole. We sometimes think that God does not care. That is NOT true. God, who gave names to all the stars, even the ones we cannot see even with the Hubble space telescope, cares about YOU. He knows what is going on in your life and He hears you when you cry out to Him. He is I AM THAT I AM. Meaning that He is everything you need and you are only complete when He is the I AM in your life. He will answer you because He loves you.

ABUNDANCE

Let us remember that Jesus is our Savior and our Lord and that He is the one with the answers. When our lives seem to be a maze and we cannot find our way out, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. If we are going to live our lives in the abundance of God, we must follow Jesus. What would Jesus do? That is a good question for young and old. We should ask ourselves that question and if we don’t know the answer then we should be a good student of the Word of God and we should be pray and find out from God what is the right thing to do in His sight. The abundance of God is walking in His favor and blessing and His peace. May these be yours today.

SPIRITUAL NDD PHYSICAL STRENGHT

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
...they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run , and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
In these days when things are hard to deal with and hard to bear, let us spend time with the Lord, so that we can renew our spiritual and physical strength for the journey.

PEACE

John 14:27 (KJV)
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
May these words from Jesus, our Lord give comfort and encouragement to you today and everyday.

WALK ON WATER

Let us consider walking on water! What! You are crazy! Peter walked on the water to go to Jesus. The storm was raging, but Peter had his eyes on Jesus. Then he felt the wind and heard the waves roaring and he began to sink. He called out to Jesus to save him and Jesus gave him His hand and pulled him into the boat. Many times we start out our lives looking to Jesus, then we begin to feel the winds of adversity and waves of problems swirling all around us and we begin to fall. We should do what Peter did and call out for help from Jesus. He will come to our aid and put us safely back on our feet. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. THANK GOD!

WHY WORRY

Some people think that worrying is a virtue. It is not a virtue. If you do much of it you will wind up with wrinkles and frown lines! The Word of God says that we are not to worry about tomorrow. We are not to worry about yesterday. We are not to worry about today. If we worry and fret there is no way that we can hear God when he speaks to us and we will not be able to listen to reason from others. We are too busy worrying! We are to cast our cares upon Jesus because He cares for us tenderly and lovingly. When we cast our cares on Him, we must LEAVE THEM THERE. Stand in faith and know that He is taking care of the thing that concerns you because He loves YOU.
