Thanksgiving and Encouragement

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Thought:

Apostle Paul thanks God for the people of Colossae because of their faith and love; it is almost certain that people would be encouraged to see such things written about them. In Paul’s letters, we sometimes see warnings and instructions, but he also shows appreciation wherever apt. Often our minds only see the differences and wrongdoings of a person or a community, but we are completely ignorant of their positive impacts on someone or society. This divisive mindset can only be removed if we understand the love of Christ in the true message of the gospel, the main motive of which is, to reconcile God with man as opposed to causing division.

Word:

Colossians 1:3-5

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people—the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel.

Prayer:

Lord, we thank You for the love you have shown through Jesus Christ, help us to love others by encouraging others. We ask that You remove any divisive thoughts that harbor within us. Amen.

Godly Optimism

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Thought:

As Christians, when our faith is strong, we tend to be optimistic because our hope is in the living God who holds our future. Joshua and Caleb came across a situation where they could have easily been discouraged by the nature of the land and its powerful people or by the bad report of the other spies or by the grumbling of the Israelites. Despite such circumstances, Joshua and Caleb gave a positive report and urged Moses and Aaron to proceed to the promised land. Their confidence was from the fact that God was with them, and in reality, the world will try to bring our hopes down, we also have to be confident in whatever future God holds for us and if He holds it, nothing can change it.

Word:

Numbers 14:8-9

If the Lord is pleased with us, he will bring us into this land and give it to us. This is a land flowing with milk and honey! Don’t rebel against the Lord, and don’t be afraid of the people of the land. We will devour them like bread. They have no protection, and the Lord is with us. So don’t be afraid of them.

Prayer:

Lord, our hope is you, the true and living God. we want to abide in You all the days of our life. Give us the strength and wisdom to live out the plans You have for us. Amen.

God’s Goodness, Faithfulness, Righteousness, and Character of God – Psalms 119

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through Whom we have escaped death and have the gift of eternal life.

Word: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Thought: In Psalms 119, we see several references to the word of God (statutes, ordinances, His law, commandments) and how the author derives multiples blessings, prayers and praise from them. Truly, the word of God is useful to us in all aspects and with such value, we should heavily prioritize spending time in reading and understanding His Word.

Prayer:
LORD, Increase our faith so that we may dwell in your Word more and know your Will. Help us overcome anything that hinders us from being in the Word. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen!

Undivided Heart

Dear all,

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

Word: Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. Psalms 86:11

Thought: We learn of doing God’s will as we seek to know him through studying his Word and constant communication with Him through prayers. The more we know about God, the more we know what he expects of us. Let us ask God to give us the “undivided heart” to walk humbly with him.

Jesus the True Vine and we are the Branches

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word:        

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. John 15: 1 – 4.

How are we responding to this?

Thought:

LORD Jesus is our eternal refuge and gives strength to the weak, power to the powerless, and confidence in all situations. Never forget the source of our inspiration. 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalms 46: 1 – 3

“JOYFUL JOURNEY WITH GOD IS INITIATED AND IGNITED IN LORD JESUS CHRIST BY THE POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT”

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.

A backslider cannot pray, and a prayer warrior cannot dwell in sin!

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:

Jesus said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. Luke 24: 45

Thought:

How is our everyday walk with our LORD? Are we spending quality time in the presence of God?  I personally believe that nothing is more essential than carrying the presence of God wherever He leads us. God has called us to fix our eyes on Jesus. Let us do some self-analysis and make corrections wherever required.

Let us ask God to give a total restoration and a great revival for our spiritual eyes to focus clearly, to see the people and their souls like Him.

A backslider cannot pray, and a prayer warrior cannot dwell in sin.

“Transformed souls impacting the campuses and the globe as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Be brave and courageous! Our future is secure in Christ Jesus because he knows all about it.

By Grace, you have been saved, through Faith In Christ Jesus

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:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Thought:

Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19: 9-10

2 Corinthians 2:14 says, But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.

We are saved by God’s grace, and grace is love that pays a price. The sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man must be balanced.

“Living Under An Open Heaven.”

Dear all,

            Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Galatians 1: 3 – 4.

Word:  “Living Under An Open Heaven.”

But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”  At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, dragged him out of the city, and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep. Acts: 7: 55 – 60.

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” John 11: 40

Thought:

A Christian’s happiness and joyful life are not dependent on his circumstances. Keep honoring God in your conduct and words. Stephen’s death had a profound impact on Paul, who later become the world’s greatest missionary. Even those who oppose you now may later turn to Christ.

Are you living under an open heaven?

“Faith can move the mountains of obstacles”

Dear all,

Grace and peace be to you in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word: “Faith can move the mountains of obstacles”

Fight the good fight of faith… (I Tim 6:12)

This is the victory that hath overcome the world, even our faith (I John 5:4)

Thought:

The prayers of godly men and women can accomplish more than all the military forces in the world.” Prayer-craft is greater than aircraft!”

What comes from heaven in a promise

Should be sent back to heaven in a prayer

God’s promises cannot fail. He has appointed prayer to bring them to pass. Some will pray them into performances. If you do not, God will seek out others that will.  – Adapted from Streams in the Desert by Charles E. Cowman

 “The weapon of prayer against the forces of evil prevails. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings life.  – Author unknown

The secret of prayer is praying secretly – E.M. Pounds
