Let us Renew our Vision and Confidence in Christ Jesus

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:  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 18 – 20.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)

Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ Jesus.

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

Stand firm In Christ

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

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

“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.

“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.

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

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

The Aroma of Christ Jesus

Dear all,

Grace and peace be to you in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Pet 1:2

Word:

But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. II Cor 2: 14 -15

Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ.

When we have the aroma of Christ Jesus in our heart, we can’t hide the fragrance.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble

Dear all,

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

Word:        

“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.

How are we responding to this?

Thought:

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.

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

Clear Vision to See Things the Way LORD Jesus sees them

Dear all,

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

1 Corinthians 1: 3

Word: Clear Vision to See Things the way LORD Jesus sees them

Why did Jesus touch the man a second time before he could see?

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+8%3A22+-+26&version=NIV

This miracle was not difficult for Jesus, but he chose to do it in stages. Jesus asked him  “Can you see anything now?”  “Yes”, he said, “I see people, but I can’t see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around.” Interestingly, this healed man expressed his true status to LORD Jesus.

Are we healed completely by the healing power of LORD Jesus or still do we have any inner wounds? If our answer is yes, we need to pray for his “second healing touch” in our hearts.

Are we able to see souls with his eyes or are we still seeing them like trees walking around?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg_zRWyypK8

Mark 8: 25 says that, Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again and his eyes were opened. His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly.

We need to understand God’s heart for the people and their souls. God created mankind as eternal beings.

Let us make a list of all of our unsaved colleagues and family members and pray for their salvation. I strongly believe that God is more than able to save their souls.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+3%3A20-21&version=NIV

One man Elijah prayed earnestly and God answered his prayers (James 5: 17). It is our responsibility to protect them with our true prayers like a fence around a new plant .

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+5%3A17&version=NKJV

How is our prayer life? Are we spending quality time in the presence of God every day?  I personally believe that, nothing is more important 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.

The Judge is Standing at the Door! 

Dear all,

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

1 Corinthians 1: 3

 Word:

Patience in Suffering

Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise, you will be condemned.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+5%3A7-12&version=NIV

Thought:

The spiritual root system is the fundamental foundation of our growth in Christ Jesus. Remember to rely on Him for everything. His promises are kept for you and will come true in His time. May God give us the patience to plan according to His master blueprint and wait and receive His blessings. The key idea is trust and obeys to accomplish His vision in our life.

True Contentment

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.

Obedience to God’s Word – Evidence of True Faith

Dear all,

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

Word:

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+43%3A2&version=NASB

Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ.

Going through rivers of difficulty will either cause us to drown or force us to grow stronger. When we go in our own strength, we are more likely to drown. When we invite our LORD Jesus Christ to go with us, He will protect us and will take care us like the apple of his eyes.

Obedience to God’s word – Evidence of true faith (James 2: 14).

 Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!
