The Cleansed Life – Godly Sorrows Vs Worldly Sorrows

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: Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

Thought: The Cleansed Life – Godly Sorrows Vs Worldly Sorrows

If the Holy Spirit was sent to give us power to live a victorious life in all the areas of our life, why do we feel so powerless, so defeated?  Do we have any unconfessed sin in our life? What kind of concerns do we have in our lives? Is it Godly or worldly? God does not fill an unclean vessel with His limitless power and His amazing love. The vessels of our lives must be cleansed by the blood of our LORD Jesus before it can be filled with the Holy Spirit of God.

The Record of Jesus’ Ancestors

Dear all,

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. Ephesians 1: 3 – 4

Word: The Record of Jesus’ Ancestors

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+1

Thought:

God used Matthew to write the gospel book of Matthew. In the first 17 verses we meet 46 people whose lifetimes span 2,000 years. As you can see that, God employs people from diverse and unusual backgrounds to accomplish his purposes. This should give us hope that God can give us a productive future no matter how sinful our past. God’s plan continues to unfold. Amazingly, that plan includes you.

Memories of God’s Miracles and Faithfulness

Dear all,

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

 Word: “Living with grateful Heart”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%2077

11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

Thought:

Memories of God’s miracles and faithfulness sustained Israel through their difficulties. They knew that God was capable and trustworthy. When you meet new challenges, review how good God has been to you and your family, and this will strengthen your faith.

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

Living with grateful Heart

Dear all,

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and we wish you a blessed New Year. As we continue to learn more about wisdom let us live obedient to His Word.

 Word: “Living with grateful Heart”

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:

Nothing will get out of control when Christ Jesus is your LORD! Never forget God’s goodness and dependability.

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

Inner Essence of Worship

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 of God:

45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=luke+1%3A+26-45&version=NIV

The inner essence of worship is to know God truly and then to respond from the heart to that knowledge by: valuing God, treasuring God, prizing God, enjoying God being satisfied with God above all earthly things. And then that deep, restful, joyful satisfaction in God overflows in demonstrable acts of love in serving others for the sake of Christ Jesus. – John Piper.

Application:

1.      Is Jesus asking me to obey Him in a specific area?

2.      How can I be a true worshipper of Jesus this Christmas season?

Calm Your Mind Tonight

Holy Spirit, You are welcomed here.

Humbly, I’m not the greatest writer but I’m a great writer, and I have an anointing. I want you to know that it is going to be okay. God has got it. God has got a plan for your life.

If you are angry at your storms, you are missing out on blessings. You are going through what you are going through because the enemy knows what is inside of you, and the enemy is trying to defeat you. If you weren’t being fought, you wouldn’t be a threat. The enemy wouldn’t even be scared of you. Thieves don’t rob empty vaults. You talk about your devastation, hurt, the horrible season you’re in, and how you feel like God is blessing everyone else but you. You’re always talking about those things and that’s why you’re staying in those things because the Bible says that life and death are in the…

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

Wish you all a Christ centered Christmas season
