Be still, and know that I am God!

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word:

Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted, but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40: 30 – 31

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalm 46: 10

Thought: 

Have quiet time each day with God and be still before Him, reverently honoring Him for who He is. Never underestimate the resurrected power of Christ Jesus in you. Trusting in the Lord Jesus is the patient expectation that God will fulfill His promises in his Word and strengthen us to rise above life’s difficulties. Retain His promises in your consciousness. This will give you the strength to overcome every challenge you face in your faith Journey.

Jesus – The Good Shepherd

Dear all,
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13
Word: Psalm 23 – A psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Thought:
The LORD is our shepherd, and He cares for us and knows what we need better than we do. He is our maker, and He wants us to have the best for us. The greatest gift ever mankind received is the Salvation in Christ Jesus. He is the good shepherd, and He will lead us to places of safety. He rescued us through the cross and paid the full price. Trust and obey and He is able to deliver us from sin’s grip.

Gospel Doctrine Leads to Gospel Culture – Living Like Jesus

Dear all,

Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10

Word:  

            He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6: 8

Thought:

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30; The Message (MSG)Have a Victorious walk in Christ

A Tree and Its Fruit

Dear all, Let us continue to walk humbly and live for Christ Jesus as witnesses.
Word: Luke 6: 37-49

A Tree and Its Fruit
“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.
Luke 6: 43-44Thought: Jesus uses a clear example to share a very powerful principle.  “Confession without obedience has no substance.” But, the Gospel of Jesus Christ transforms us from the inside out. Overall, we are the living witnesses to share the love of Christ Jesus until the end of the earth.

The Sovereignty of God!

Dear all,

Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10  

Word: Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning – Luke 12: 35

Be – Personal call for you – God saved our forefathers through thousands of years, even in the middle of famine, war and natural calamities and brought us into this World. God’s sovereign plan in Christ Jesus for you and me was well planned by God before the foundations of the earth (Ephesians 1).

Dressed: Zechariah 3: 1-10 and Ephesians 6 talk about the garment.  It is referred to as the Salvation in Christ Jesus and the full armor of God. With these we will be secured and saved by God from satanic attacks. Submit to God and resist the devil in Jesus’ name.

For service: What is the ultimate service for us on this Earth? The answer is simple – sharing the love of Christ Jesus to the people who are in need of salvation. Our life should have a solid foundation in the Word of God. We need to have one desire, one passion, one goal and that is, to proclaim Jesus’ name by our words and actions everywhere (Matthew 7: 24).

Keep your lamps burning: Plug your mind into the power of prayer and be filled with the Holy Spirit, which results in a continuous victorious walk in Christ in all the areas of your life. In which area do you need a continuous victory? Let us ask God like Jacob and He is ready to bless us with a victorious life. In addition, God called us to be a light in the darkness (Matthew 5). Oil lamp needs a continuous supply of oil and if it is an electric lamp it needs a continuous electric supply. Here we can compare oil and electricity with God’s anointment of the Holy Spirit.

Let us spend some time in prayer and re-evaluate our walk with Christ.

Thought: The Sovereignty of God

God is sovereign, He is in charge. When your life seems chaotic, rest in this truth and rest in His arms. God is in control; Jesus is LORD, and the Holy Spirit is with you as Jesus Promised.

Hezekiah’s Prayer

Dear all,

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. Ephesians 1:2

Word:  Hezekiah’s Prayer

 Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord. And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord: “Lord, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.  Give ear, Lord, and hear; open your eyes, Lord, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.  “It is true, Lord, that the Assyrian kings have laid waste these nations and their lands. They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands.  Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, Lord, are God.” II Kings 19: 14-19

Thought: Hezekiah’s Prayer provides an excellent model for us. Pray for your time at work, for divine appointments to share the love of Christ Jesus. It is our responsibility to reach an unreached community, to pray for the people who are yet to be saved (Psalm 102: 18).

Let us Run with Endurance!

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word:

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2 (ESV)

Thought: As a disciple of Christ we are running toward our Heavenly reward. To live effectively, we must keep our eyes on Christ Jesus. Run in such a way to get the prize and run with the purpose in every step. We must have a purpose and a plan (1 Cor 9: 24-27). The essential disciplines of prayer, Bible study and worship equip us to run with vigor and stamina.

Train diligently – Spiritual progress depends upon it.

Christ-centered attitude colors our whole personality!

Dear all,

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace and bless you as a channel of blessings.

Romans 12:2 says “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”.

Thought: How to Be a Discerning person? –  Our attitude colors our whole personality!

What we feed our minds is more important than what we feed our bodies. The websites we visit, the books we read, the people we talk with, the Christian music we listen to, and the Christian preachers we listen to are all part of our diet to our mind. Be discerning, because what you feed your mind influences your overall health and well-being. Thus a strong desire like Heroes of faith Joshua, Daniel, and Paul, etc (Hebrews 11) to discover knowledge is a mark of wisdom in Christ Jesus. Our attitude colors our whole personality.

The true happiness in Christ Jesus is in our thoughts, not based on the things that we have. We cannot always choose what happens to us, but we can choose our attitude toward each situation. The secret to a joyful heart is filling our minds with thoughts that dwell on the good things in life (Philip 4: 8). This was Paul’s secret as he faced imprisonment because of the true Gospel of Christ Jesus and it can be ours as we face struggles of daily living. Look and check your attitude and then examine in the presence of God what you allow to enter your mind and what you choose to dwell on. You may need to make some positive changes and seek to do what is right, walk humbly with the LORD Jesus Christ in this Journey (Zephaniah 2: 3). Be the Church (Romans 12:3-5) and be a tentmaker like Aquila and Pricilla’s family (Acts 18:1-4; 18-20; 24-26).

SERVE THE PURPOSE OF GOD IN YOUR OWN GENERATION – ACTS 13: 36

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word:        Luke 14: 25 – 33

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2014:25-33

  1. And if you do not carry your cross and follow me, you can not be my disciple.

Thought: Cost of True Christian Discipleship

LORD Jesus encouraged those who were superficial either to go deeper or to turn back. Following Christ Jesus means an absolute submission to do God’s will and follow His footprints.

SERVE THE PURPOSE OF GOD IN YOUR OWN GENERATION – ACTS 13: 36

Vision Inscribed!

Dear all,

Be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. II Timothy 2: 1

Word:

I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last, you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4: 10 – 13

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+4&version=NIV

Thought:

True contentment comes only when we submit ourselves to God and absolutely follow His plan. As we admit our failures and humbly seek to do God’s will, we find ourselves drawing closer to God. As we draw close to God, He will renew our spiritual lives. Once we have renewed our mind in Christ Jesus, we will have a vision that was inscribed by our LORD Jesus on our hearts and minds to carry out His will without grumbling.
