Valleys and Shadows

Dear all,

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

Word: Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalms 143:10

Psalms 23: 3 and 4 says, He guides me along right paths bringing honor to His name. Even though when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

Matthew 9: 36: When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Thought: Let Christ Jesus guide you in the valleys and shadows of your life, and you will never need to stumble in darkness.

THEREFORE WE WILL NOT FEAR!

Dear all,

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

Word:      

       God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalms 46: 1 – 3    

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. John 15: 1 – 4.

Thought: How are we responding to this?

LORD Jesus is our eternal refuge and gives strength to the weak, power to the powerless and confidence in all situations. Never forget the source of our inspiration. 

Spiritual Warfare!

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 and Thought:

The weapons of spiritual warfare are not worldly. They are powerful through God to demolish the devil’s forts. We do not wage war with human plans and methods. Remember, we should always sharpen our spiritual weapons in prayer and by waiting before God with perseverance (Eph 6:13 -18).

The Lord of the Armies is with us. We stand still and know that He is God! (Psalm 46:9-11).

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. (2 Cor 10:3, 4)

When God is supplying all your weapons for the spiritual battle, no challenge is too big to win. While you are walking through the rocky road – Remember Jesus also walked on the same road. So, He can give strength to overcome evil with good.

The LORD Almighty is mustering an army for war. Isaiah 13: 4

Be brave and courageous! Our future is secure in Christ Jesus because he knows all about it.

Stand firm In Christ

“Faith can move the mountains of obstacles”

Dear all,

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

Word: “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)

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 – E.M. Pounds

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!

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

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!

Stand firm in Christ

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.

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?
