Do We have the Fear of God?

Dear all,

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16: 13 -14.

Word of God:

The Fear-of-God builds up confidence, and makes a world safe for your children. 

The Fear-of-God is a spring of living water so you won’t go off drinking from poisoned wells.
Proverbs 14: 26-27

The fear of the LORD leads to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied. Pro 19:23

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward Him. II Chronicles 16:9a

 Thought:

Do we have the Fear of God?
When we fear God, we don’t have to be afraid of or worry about anything.

Jesus is the living water.

Jesus answered, “All who drinks this water will be thirsty again.  But anyone who drinks the water I give him will never be thirsty. In fact, the water I give him will become a spring of water in him. It will flow up into eternal life.” John 4: 13 and 14

Fear not! Stand Still! See the Miraculous Deliverance of our LORD!

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

Fear not! Stand Still! See the miraculous deliverance of our Lord!

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” II Chronicles 20: 13b

 “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

13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14: 13 – 14

The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17

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.

Do you have confidence in Christ Jesus that His purposes are right? Do you believe God loves you and wants the best for you?

In Christ, we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

The Cross of Christ Jesus is the Bridge Between Earth and Heaven

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:

“All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:25-27

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+14%3A25-27&version=NIV

Thought:

The cross of Christ Jesus is the bridge between Earth and Heaven to have a constant relationship with God. Holy Spirit is the one who helps us to maintain that relationship 24/7. Since we are the children of God, we are not orphans, anymore.

For God has not given us a Spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline. II Tim 1: 7

Christianity is not a religion, but relationship. How is our walk with our LORD?

Stand Firm in Christ

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

The Lord Knows Those Who are His!

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us continue to walk humbly and live for Christ Jesus as witnesses.

Word: For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames. Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple. I Cor 3: 11 – 17.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+3%3A11-17&version=NIV

Thought: Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” II Tim 2: 19

Know who you are in Christ Jesus, and know your enemy!

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word: 1 John 2:16 

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life is not from the Father but is from the world.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+John+2:16

Thought:  Know who you are in Christ Jesus, and know your enemy!

We are in a battle against three enemies – the world, the flesh, and the devil.

The world comes at us from the outside bombarding us with counterfeits to the truth.

The flesh comes at us from the inside.

The devil is constantly and continuously attacking us, usually working through the world and the flesh rather than mounting a full-on attack.

All three of them try to subdue us without fighting. They attack us constantly at our weak points.  To stand firm in our battle, we need to know the truth and permit the truth to penetrate into our minds.

”You know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8: 32

“In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.” John 1: 4

“Alpha and the Omega”

Dear all,

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16: 13 -14.

Word: Revelation 1: 7-8

Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.  “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+1%3A7-8&version=NASB

Thought: When we put our trust in Christ Jesus, no matter what the circumstances are we can rejoice in the new life in him at every moment of life. God is the “Alpha and the Omega” – the beginning and the end. He is the eternal God, unlimited by time. He is also the Almighty, able to do anything. We can have hope and peace because God is in control of our past, present and future.

Revival is an experience in the Church; Evangelism is an expression of the Church – Paul-S. Rees.

“The Great Commissions of Christ Jesus”

Dear all,
May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
“The Great Commissions of Christ Jesus”
“Go and make disciples of all nations” – Matthew 28: 18 – 20
“Go and preach the gospel to all creations” – Mark 16: 15
Acts 1: 8 says, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.
Thought: No matter what ministry God has given to you, your highest reward and greatest joy should be those who come to believe in Christ Jesus and growing in HIM.
Be brave and courageous! Our future is secure in Christ Jesus because he knows all about it.

Thought Conditioners: God’s Clock doesn’t Function Like a Man’s Clock

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 of God:

Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Psalms 43: 3

Keep your conscience clear. 1 Peter 3: 16

You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the wilderness overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing. Psalms 65: 11-13

A couple of thoughts:

  • God’s clock doesn’t function like a man’s clock.
  • Never underestimate the resurrected power of Christ Jesus in you. Retain the promises of Godin your consciousness. This will give you the strength to overcome every difficulty you are facing in this faith journey.
  • Be brave in Christ Jesus. Ask God to fill your heart with the confidence in Christ Jesus.
  • How often do we pour out our hearts to God? How often do you give him a specific request to answer?
  • True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives, and actions.
  • Motives are just as important as actions.
  • Quiet convictions often earn long term respect.
  • God’s opinion is important.
  • Remembering God’s faithfulness is worth a pause for reflection.
  • When God forgives our sins He totally forgets them.
  • Don’t stop trusting God just as you are ready to reach your goal.
  • Be corrected by God and become who God intended. Train your tongue to speak well!
  •        Are you a fan or a follower? No matter what the cost, let us follow the footprints of Jesus.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

Be Strong and Glad – Seek and Save

Dear all,

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

Word: “For unto us a child is born, unto us, a Son is given”. (Isaiah 9:6)

Thought: God sent us the light of the world Jesus Christ to show His light to those who are in darkness. God sent us the Savior to seek and save those who are lost.

Be strong and glad! Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus

Dear all,

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

Acts 14: 17 says “He sends rain and good crops and gives you food and joyful hearts”. 

Let us receive His blessings and share the blessings with many nations.

Thought:

True happiness is in Christ Jesus and it is 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 things that are true and pure (Philip 4: 8). This was Paul’s secret as he faced imprisonment because of the Gospel of Christ Jesus and it can be ours as we face struggles in our daily life. Check your attitude. Examine, in the presence of God what we allow to enter our mind and what we choose to dwell on. We may need to make some positive changes. Seek to do what is right and walk humbly with the LORD Jesus Christ in this faith journey (Zephaniah 2: 3).

Let us be the Church (Romans 12:3-5) and be tentmakers like Aquila and Pricilla’s family (Acts 18:1-4; 18-20; 24-26). 

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus
