JESUS

Let us always remember that Jesus came into this world to show us the light and life of God, then He became the ultimate, perfect sacrifice for our sin by dying on the cross to pay for our sin. (Isaiah 53:5 KJV)


But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes we are healed.

LIVING BLESSED

This is the way a person who is blessed lives. (Psalm 1:1-2 AMP)


Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans, and their purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and mockers] gather. But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, and the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.

A GOOD NAME

Proverbs 22:1, says that a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor than silver and gold. KJV How do you have a good name? Our reputation (name) depends on our actions, our words, and our ways. If Jesus is your Savior and Lord, your life should reflect His life. To be like Jesus should be our number one goal, not how to get rich. Being rich is not bad, but it must be our god. Loving favor is the favor of God in all that you do. Walking in the favor of God is greater than anything in this world. His favor is abundant and always present. Those who choose God to be their Father are daily blessed with His abundant favor.

ACTION

Do you ever “wish” that you had more faith? According to Galatians we live by the faith of the Son of God, Jesus, and we have the measure of faith that comes from Him. The problem is that we must plant faith like we would plant a tomato seed. How do we plant faith? Faith comes by continually hearing, speaking, and thinking about the Word of God. Then we must be doers of what God has said in His Word. Without doing what the Word of God says, our faith is dead! Therefore we must know, believe, and do what God has said in His Word. Sorry to say, we are vessels that are leaky and forgetful, therefore we must continually meditate on God’s Word if our faith is going to become strong! Meditate! Speak! Do! What God says in His Word. You will be blessed day by day in His Word.

SMOOTH SAILING

Each of us is like a little ship on a large ocean. Sometimes the ocean is peaceful, sometimes there is a breeze, sometimes there are storms, and sometimes there is a monsoon. What do we do during these times? Let us remember that we are not to let natural things that take place in our lives become giant problems, but remember that these things will be gone soon, our sailing days will be smoother. The Bible says that the natural things we see today, will be gone tomorrow. Therefore our focus should be on the eternal things of God which never change and will be there tomorrow and forever. Lift up your eyes! Look up! Your redemption draws near!

RECEIVE

When we pray we should expect to receive what we have prayed for. If we do not expect to receive, why bother praying. God is the giver of all good gifts and He is the One that answers our prayers. We are the receivers! Do you have your heart open to receive the answer? Do you have your arms open to receive the blessing? Do you have your mind open to hear what God is saying to you? All of these things have to do with expecting God’s move in your life. Pray! Expect to Receive! God is good all the time.

JOY

When we receive answers to our prayers, we should be joyful. The joy of the Lord should be overflowing inside of us. We should let it flow out so that others will be encouraged to pray. The man that was healed at the gate of the Temple in Acts 3, ran, and jumped, and leaped through the temple grounds. His joy was overflowing and he didn’t try to stop the display. Sometimes we are so "proper" that we refuse to let the joy of the Lord flow out of us. When God answers our prayers, we should let the joy of the Lord inside us, flow outside of us so others can be encouraged.
