Prayer – Two Way Communication with God

Dear all,

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

Word:

Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. James 5: 17-18

 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.  “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. Matthew 20:32-34.

Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ Jesus. Let us practice a life living under an open heaven, 

The Christian’s most powerful resource is communion with God through prayer.

Prayer – Power to the powerless

              Hope to the hopeless

             Strength to the strengthless

God will answer your prayers in mysterious ways.

Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

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.

Serving the Servant King LORD Jesus Christ

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: Not to be served but to serve:

For even the Son of Man did not come to be servedbut to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Mark 10: 45

Thought: The essence of the Christian life is based on faith in LORD Jesus Christ. In this human life span, we need to be led by the power of the Holy Spirit to avoid the domination of flesh over us. When we have the attitude of Christ Jesus in our mind we will see the world with the eyes of Jesus, which is with compassion to bring a healing touch to those who are in need.

Remember we are the ambassadors of Christ Jesus! Yes, we are!

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).

Choose life!

Dear all,

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

Word:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3: 5-6

Thought:

Christ-Centered wisdom is a God-given gift. Its starting point is God and his revealed Word, the source of “knowledge and understanding”. The pathway to wisdom is active and when we are on the path, we discover that the true wisdom is God’s. Choose life! Please God always! Pray for discernment and wisdom to make the correct choices!

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

“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.

Sparrow’s Nest and Christ-Centered Family Life

Dear all,

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Word of God:

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King, and my God. Psalms 84: 3

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12: 7

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41 – 42.

Thought:

To live a practical and a victorious Christian life we must keep our eyes on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is our King and we are His People. In addition, we have our sonship in Christ-Jesus. He is our role model too. 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.

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-Jesus, we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1). We will have days of Heaven on Earth when we remember God always and in all things.
