About thejourneyinchrist

God has placed a burden to send weekly encouraging emails to our friends. Initially we have sent to a team of friends. As the word of God says "For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." (Isaiah 55:10-11) Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I (Jesus Christ) give will never thirst - not ever. The water I give will be an artisan spring within, gushing fountains of endless life. If any one thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the scripture says ' You'll be like a well watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry. John 4: 13-14, John 7: 38-39; Isaiah 58:11 God's word: For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory. He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea. Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD: “The LORD looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners and release those condemned to death.” So the name of the LORD will be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the LORD. Ps 102: 16 - 22 Then the word of the LORD came to me: "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you. "Who despises the day of small things? Men will rejoice when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. "(These seven are the eyes of the LORD, which range throughout the earth.)" Zechariah 4 : 8-10. Haggai 2 : 4 and 5 But now be strong, O Zerubbabel,' declares the LORD. 'Be strong, O Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,' declares the LORD, 'and work. For I am with you,' declares the LORD Almighty. 'This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.' "THE LORD ALMIGHTY IS MUSTERING AN ARMY FOR WAR. IS 13:4" We have experienced the great favor and power of God in His words. Jesus said we are the light the world. Be a light.

“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”.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

God’s Protection for His People

Dear all,

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

Word:

Like birds hovering overhead, the LORD Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it.”  Isaiah 31:5

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. Matthew 23:37

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” Genesis 3:8-9

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

Revival is an experience in the church; Evangelism is an expression of the Church – Paul. S. Rees

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

God Wants to Walk with us before He Works through us

Dear all,

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

Word: Enoch Walked with God – Hebrews 11: 5-6 (NIV)

By faith Enoch was taken from this life so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Thought:

God wants to walk with us before He works through us. His ways are reflected in our thoughts, our actions, our motivations, and our life choices because we spend so much time with Him.

How is our faith 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 (Hebrews 12). Let us do some self-analysis and make corrections wherever required.

Quiet Convictions often Earn Long Term Respect

Dear all,

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

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. Ephesians 1:3

Word:

As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—  you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame. II Peter 2: 4-6.

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

The Characteristics of Christ – the Cornerstone, is completely trustworthy and precious to those who believe in Him.

Quiet convictions often earn long term respect.

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.
