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.

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.

The Language of Pain

Dear all,

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

Word:  

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

In all this, you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire —may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 1 Peter 1: 6-7

Thought – The Language of Pain: 

When your life explodes in continuous pain and prolonged suffering, trust in Christ Jesus is more important than logic.

        We must accept trials as part of the refining process that burns away impurities and prepares us to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Remember – Jesus carries us through everything because He is able.

I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. Isa 48:10

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

John H. Sammis, 1846-1919

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

Forgiven People – Forgive People; Healed People – Heal People!

Dear all,

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

1 Corinthians 1: 3

Word:

Then he said, “Remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”

Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Luke 23: 42-43

Thought:

True forgiveness comes from God in order to make us be the right disciple of Christ Jesus. As a result, we will have not only a peaceful life but also a fruitful life. Moreover, forgiven people know the deep love of God in Christ Jesus and cannot keep any kind of hatred against anyone.

Forgiven people – Forgive people

Healed people – Heal people

Stand Firm in Christ

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.

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.

Stand Firm in Christ

Dear all,

May God bless you and keep you in His presence and His peace during this Christmas season and years to come.

Word:

“For unto us a child is born, unto us, a Son is given”. (Isaiah 9)

Thought:

God sent us the light of the world- Jesus Christ- to show His light to those who are in darkness.

God sent us the Savior to seek and save those who are lost.

Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a blessed new-year 2019.

Be strong and glad!

Pass it On! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Year of the Lord’s Favor – Luke 4: 18-19
