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

Multiply – Disciples making disciples – Pass it on

Be Courageous and live for Jesus!

Stand firm in Christ Jesus

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.

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

Twelve Ordinary Men

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: Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10: 1

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+10&version=NIV

Thought: God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.

The twelve disciples were personally selected and called by Christ. Ordinary men-people like you and me – became the instrument by which Christ’s message was carried to the ends of the earth. No wonder they are such fascinating characters. – Adapted from John Macarthur’s Twelve Ordinary Men.

Are we Reflecting God’s Glory in our day-to-day Life?

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:

The Beginning – In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. Genesis 1: 1 – 4

Thought:

The creation of history teaches us about God and ourselves. God is all knowing and all powerful (Elohim reveals His power). He created us to reflect His glory by our actions through living an exemplary Christ-centered life. The only way to enjoy the blessings of God is to obey Him. When we obey God, we find peace with Him, with others, and with ourselves.

Are we reflecting God’s glory in our day-to-day life?

When God speaks, miracles happen.
