When you Fear God, you Fear Nothing Else!

Dear all,

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

Word: Life by the Spirit

(Jesus) I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10b

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him, we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8: 14-17

“The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.” – Oswald Chambers

A.W. Tozer says that “A frightened world needs a fearless church.”

“A frightened world needs a fearless church.”

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

Fear not! Stand Still! See the miraculous deliverance of our Lord!

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14: 13 – 14

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” II Chronicles 20: 13b

 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalm 46: 10

A. W. Tozer says that “A frightened world needs a fearless church.”

We need to have absolute confidence in Christ Jesus that His purposes are right. In addition, we also need to believe that God loves us and wants the best for us. Trusting in the LORD Jesus is the patient expectation that God will fulfill His promises in his Word and strengthen us to rise above life’s difficulties.

Sparrow’s Nest and Christ-Centered Family Life

Dear all,

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

Word of God:

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King, and my God. Psalms 84: 3

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12: 7

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41 – 42.

Thought:

To live a practical and a victorious Christian life we must keep our eyes on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is our King and we are His People. In addition, we have our sonship in Christ-Jesus. He is our role model too. Our LORD is faithful, and His faithfulness endures to all generations (Psalms 119: 90).

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

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

Dear all,

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

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+6%3A10&version=NIV

By Prayer we are strengthened in our Spirit. Acts 1: 8

The word of God is the food by which prayer is nourished and made strong. – E. M. Bounds

Christ Jesus – The Living Stone

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, are completely trustworthy and precious to those who believe in Him.

Quiet convictions often earn long term respect.

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: Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. Phil 2: 5

But only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 42

Thought: In the Spiritual warfare we need to remember that we are in the ultimate winning side – Christ Jesus is the Victor.

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:        

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 can I receive strength and confidence?

LORD Jesus is our eternal refuge and gives strength and confidence in all circumstances.

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 of God:

“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)

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. Heb 4: 12 -13

Thought:

The word of God is living, life-changing and dynamic as it works in us. The demands of God’s word require decisions … a strong and firm decision in Christ. We must also let it shape our lives.

Dare to be a Daniel! Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm! Dare to make it known!
Hold the Gospel banner high! On to vict’ry grand!
Satan and his host defy, And shout for Daniel’s Band!
(Philip P. Bliss, 1838-1876)

Thought Conditioners: God’s Clock doesn’t Function Like a Man’s Clock

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 of God:

Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Psalms 43: 3

Keep your conscience clear. 1 Peter 3: 16

You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the wilderness overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing. Psalms 65: 11-13

A couple of thoughts:

  • God’s clock doesn’t function like a man’s clock.
  • Never underestimate the resurrected power of Christ Jesus in you. Retain the promises of Godin your consciousness. This will give you the strength to overcome every difficulty you are facing in this faith journey.
  • Be brave in Christ Jesus. Ask God to fill your heart with the confidence in Christ Jesus.
  • How often do we pour out our hearts to God? How often do you give him a specific request to answer?
  • True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives, and actions.
  • Motives are just as important as actions.
  • Quiet convictions often earn long term respect.
  • God’s opinion is important.
  • Remembering God’s faithfulness is worth a pause for reflection.
  • When God forgives our sins He totally forgets them.
  • Don’t stop trusting God just as you are ready to reach your goal.
  • Be corrected by God and become who God intended. Train your tongue to speak well!
  •        Are you a fan or a follower? No matter what the cost, let us follow the footprints of Jesus.

Today is the Day of Salvation

Dear Friends in Christ,

We wish you all a Christ-centered Christmas season. Remember Christ Jesus is the reason for this season!

Word:

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. Luke 21: 33-34

Thought: Are we caught up with materialism? Who/what is ruling our hearts?

If we replace Christ with anything else that becomes idol worship.

Our role model is Christ and He lived a humble and holy life. Do we have humbleness in our hearts?

Today is the day of Salvation. Turn to Jesus and He will change our hearts.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas season and a blessed new-year 2020.

Be strong and glad!

Stand firm in Christ
