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.

Great Banquet – God Extends His Grace and Mercy to everyone who Repents!

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:  “‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’ “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in so that my house will be full. 

Thought: The story of the great banquet illustrates one of the major themes in Luke’s Gospel. God extends His grace and mercy to everyone who repents. Confession and repentance mean a change in the deepest heart. With God’s help, we can accept Christ’s forgiveness and stop our wrongdoing. Jesus heals our inner wounds as well as outer wounds by his stripes.

“Jesus was wounded… Jesus was crushed… By His stripes, we are healed” (Isa 53:5)

What Happens When We don’t Practice the Discipline of Gratitude?

Dear all,

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

 Word: “Living with a Grateful Heart” – Are you grateful to the LORD?

Luke 17:11-19 – Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100: 4 and 5

Thought:

What happens when we don’t practice the discipline of gratitude?

We will be fueled and filled with ingratitude, refusing to acknowledge and respond to what Christ has done for us. This will produce in us a very unhealthy attitude and a life that is not Spirit-led. We will not realize what we have or could have, but rather focus on an “entitlement” mentality that says we deserve this or that, and where humbleness and servitude are absent. It will create in us a life of dissatisfaction and dysfunction.

Let us have a life that overflows with gratitude in Christ Jesus!

Always Remember – We are on the Winning side – Christ Jesus is the Victor!

Dear all,
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Phil 1:2
Word:
When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”

Thought: Always Remember – We are on the Winning side – Christ Jesus is the Victor because He cares, He Loves, He knows the future, He knows what is the best for us and for the upcoming new generations too. 
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. Phil 2: 5 Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

Hezekiah’s Prayer

Dear all,

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

Word:  Hezekiah’s Prayer

 Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord. And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord: “Lord, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.  Give ear, Lord, and hear; open your eyes, Lord, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.  “It is true, Lord, that the Assyrian kings have laid waste these nations and their lands. They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands.  Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, Lord, are God.” II Kings 19: 14-19

Thought: Hezekiah’s Prayer provides an excellent model for us. Pray for your time at work, for divine appointments to share the love of Christ Jesus. It is our responsibility to reach an unreached community, to pray for the people who are yet to be saved (Psalm 102: 18).

Do We have True Joy In Our Hearts?

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:

Philippians 4: 4 – Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Thought:

Do we have true joy in our hearts?

The secret of a joyful Christian life is being deeply rooted and grounded in Christ. It is very easy to get discouraged and distracted about unpleasant circumstances or to take unimportant events too seriously. No matter what kind of circumstances (Habakkuk 3: 17-19) we may have, still, Sovereign God is on His throne and He is in control. Let us learn to see life with an eternal perspective through God’s Word, and put into practice. 

Stand firm in Christ

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.

Vision Inscribed!

Dear all,

Be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. II Timothy 2: 1

Word:

I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last, you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4: 10 – 13

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+4&version=NIV

Thought:

True contentment comes only when we submit ourselves to God and absolutely follow His plan. As we admit our failures and humbly seek to do God’s will, we find ourselves drawing closer to God. As we draw close to God, He will renew our spiritual lives. Once we have renewed our mind in Christ Jesus, we will have a vision that was inscribed by our LORD Jesus on our hearts and minds to carry out His will without grumbling.

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!
