Do we have Authentic Friends 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: Mark 2: 1 – 12

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+2%3A1-12&version=NIV

Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Verses 3 – 5.

Thought:

Jesus came not only to heal physical problems but also to solve the sin problem. If we have not yet come to know Jesus, we are paralyzed in spirit, as powerless to help ourselves as was this paralyzed man. If our faith is still too weak to carry us to the point of healing, the faith of “four friends” may be enough to get us there. Adapted from Every Man’s Bible, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.

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

What will God Testify about you and me? 

Greetings in LORD Jesus Christ’s mighty name.
 
Praise Him- for His love endures forever
 
Psalm 113:3
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised.  
 
Such is the greatness of our Lord and God almighty. He is Holy and He is worthy to be praised. This is what we see in Revelation 4:8-11
 

…“‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’[a] who was, and is, and is to come.”….“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will, they were created and have their being.”  

There is so much more in Praising God than we can ever imagine (especially in our struggles).  When we start praising God, Our focus changes from self to GOD. This is where we often have trouble, especially in difficult times. But the movement we open our hearts to praise HIM, He fills us with joy, peace, comfort, strength, etc. Such is the goodness of our God. He is Trustworthy. When we praise God, it helps us to humble and rely on Him to bring us out of struggles, to overcome. Praise changes our mindset from complaining to trusting God, reliance on GOD. Praise invites HIS Presence into our lives, situations. Praise refreshes and renews our spirit in HIM. Praise allows God to release His power and do miracles. (Acts 16:25-26)
 
We can trust in many things, but nothing can ever come close or even be compared to what God offers us in Him. So Praise Him
Our sufferings are temporary. But remember who we are in Christ, He loves us, He has called us His Children, He Blessed us. Let us praise the Lord forever. 
 
May the LORD fill us with His Holy Spirit and let we Praise Him all day long and all the days of our life as King David, whom God testified as “A man after my Own Heart”(1 Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22)
What will God Testify about you and me? 
 

God Bless.

“When We have the Aroma of Christ Jesus We cannot hide it”.

Dear all,

May God bless and strengthen you all the days of your life Ephesians 6: 12 – 17

Word:

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

Thought:

True believers have been transferred from darkness to light, from slavery to freedom, from guilt to forgiveness and from the power of Satan to the power of God.

Our conduct should reflect our new allegiance.

The Prayer of the Upright is his Delight

Dear all,

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

Word:  The prayer of the upright is his delight – Proverbs 15: 8

“Faith can move the mountains of obstacles” – Be a hero of faith in your faith journey in Christ Jesus (Hebrews 11).

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

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. (1 John 5:4)

Thought: “Oh, the wonders of prayer! ‘Abraham’s servant prays…Rebekah appears. Jacob wrestles and prays and prevails with Christ…Esau’s mind is wonderfully turned from the revengeful purpose he has harbored for twenty years. Moses cries to God… the sea divides. Moses prays…Amalek is discomfited. Joshua prays….Achan is discovered. Hannah prays…Samuel is born. David prays….Ahithophel hangs himself. Asa prays…a victory is gained. Jehoshaphat cries to God….God turns away his foes. Isaiah prays…the dream is revealed. Daniel prays…the lions are muzzled. Daniel prays…the seventy weeks are revealed. Ezra prays at Ahava.…God answers. Nehemiah start a prayer…the King’s heart is softened in a minute. Elijah prays…a drought of three years succeeds. Elijah prays…rain descends apace. Elisha prays…Jordan is divided. The church prays fervently…Peter is delivered by an angel. – Adapted from Streams in the Desert by Charles E. Cowman

Year of LORD’S Favor

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:

Do you not know?    Have you not heard?  The LORD is the everlasting God,   the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary,   and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40: 28-31.

One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.”

Acts 18: 9-10

I can do all this through Christ who gives me strength. Phil 4:13

 Thought:

God’s power and His strength never diminish and it is limitless like His everlasting love. His strength is our source. He cares for each and every one of us personally.

Wish you all a Happy New year and may the LORD turn around this new year as a year of LORD’S favor.

Stand Firm in Christ

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

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

Word:  The prayer of the upright is his delight – Proverbs 15: 8

 “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)

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

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.

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

Prayer – Two Way Communication with God

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:

16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews+4%3A16&version=NASB

Thought:

Prayer is our humble approach to God, and we are to come “boldly.” In addition, come with reverence because he is our King. Are we prayerful and empowered by the power of Holy Spirit?

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.

What we feed our minds?

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 give you food and joyful hearts”.

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

Thought:

What we feed our minds is just more as important as what we feed our bodies. The kinds of websites we visit, kinds of 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 mental diet. Be discerning, because what you feed your mind influences your total health and well-being. Thus a strong desire like Heroes of faith Joshua, Daniel, and Paul etc 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 your thoughts not based on the things what 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 mind 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 the tent maker like Aquila and Pricilla’s family (Acts 18:1-4; 18-20; 24-26).

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus

Have a blessed walk in Christ

The Ultimate Result of True 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 Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

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

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews%204:12-13

Thought:

The word of God is living, life changing, and dynamic as it works in us. It penetrates the core of our moral and spiritual life. The demands of God’s word require decisions. Let us listen to the word of God and apply it in our day to day walk.

True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives and actions resulting in a joyful life.

Stand firm in Christ
