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

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.

“Go and preach the gospel to all creations” – Mark 16: 15

On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.  Psalm 63: 6

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.

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

“A frightened world needs a fearless church.”

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

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

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. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14: 13 – 14

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

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+46&version=NIV

A. W. Tozer says that “A frightened world needs a fearless church.”

We need to have absolute confidence in Christ Jesus that His purposes are right. In addition, we also need to believe that God loves us and wants the best for us. 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.

“Seeing Our World through the Eyes of Jesus” – Casting Down the Strongholds in Jesus’ Name!

Dear all,

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

Casting down the strongholds in Jesus’ name:

A stronghold is defined as “something” that holds you back from your walk with the LORD Jesus Christ. What is holding you back from spending quality time in fasting and praying?

Word:  When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1: 4

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Nehemiah+1&version=NIV

Thought:  “Seeing our world through the eyes of Jesus”

Nehemiah intensely mourned about the condition of Jerusalem, but he didn’t just talk about it. After his initial grieving, he prayed, pouring his heart out to God, and he looked for ways to improve the situation.  Nehemiah fasted and prayed for several days, expressing his sorrow for Israel’s sin and his desire that Jerusalem would again come alive with the worship of one true God.

Nehemiah called the people to intercede with tears and repentance. How can we be without compassion for our children, youngsters, and families who are trapped in the grip of Satan? Isn’t it our responsibility to pray for them?

 Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, give us the grace to pray like Nehemiah for those who are afflicted and for our nation for a great revival. In Jesus’ mighty name – Amen.

Word of God is Living, Life-changing, and Dynamic

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:

                  For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4: 12- 13

Thought:

                  The word of God is living, life-changing, and dynamic as it works in us. It penetrates the inner core of our moral and spiritual life. The demands of God’s word require decisions. Decisions make us lead a well-balanced Christian life. Let us listen to the word of God and follow it in our day-to-day walk. We need to remember that God has chosen us and it is not because of our merit that we have come to faith in Christ. Instead, God chose us out of His everlasting goodness and amazing grace.

Our LORD is faithful, and His faithfulness endures to all generations (Psalms 119: 90).

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

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.

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

 How did Christ’s Resurrection Influence your Spiritual Journey?

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:

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Romans 8: 11

Thought:

The Holy Spirit is God’s promise of eternal life for those who believe in Him. The Spirit is in us now by faith, and by faith, we are certain to live with Christ forever. He is the power source behind the spiritual rebirth of every Christian and He gives the power to live a victorious Christian life in this world.

 How did Christ’s resurrection influence your spiritual walk?

We can trust God with anything because the resurrection changes everything.
