“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.

“Seeing Our World through the Eyes of Jesus” – Casting Down the Strongholds in Jesus’ Name!

Dear all,

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16: 13 -14.

Casting down the strongholds in Jesus’ name:

A stronghold is defined as “something” that holds you back from your walk with the LORD Jesus Christ. What is holding you back from spending quality time in fasting and praying?

Word:  When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1: 4

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Nehemiah+1&version=NIV

Thought:  “Seeing our world through the eyes of Jesus”

Nehemiah intensely mourned about the condition of Jerusalem, but he didn’t just talk about it. After his initial grieving, he prayed, pouring his heart out to God, and he looked for ways to improve the situation.  Nehemiah fasted and prayed for several days, expressing his sorrow for Israel’s sin and his desire that Jerusalem would again come alive with the worship of one true God.

Nehemiah called the people to intercede with tears and repentance. How can we be without compassion for our children, youngsters, and families who are trapped in the grip of Satan? Isn’t it our responsibility to pray for them?

 Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, give us the grace to pray like Nehemiah for those who are afflicted and for our nation for a great revival. In Jesus’ mighty name – Amen.

Word of God is Living, Life-changing, and Dynamic

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:

                  For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4: 12- 13

Thought:

                  The word of God is living, life-changing, and dynamic as it works in us. It penetrates the inner core of our moral and spiritual life. The demands of God’s word require decisions. Decisions make us lead a well-balanced Christian life. Let us listen to the word of God and follow it in our day-to-day walk. We need to remember that God has chosen us and it is not because of our merit that we have come to faith in Christ. Instead, God chose us out of His everlasting goodness and amazing grace.

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.

Be Strong and Glad – Seek and Save

Dear all,

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

Word: “For unto us a child is born, unto us, a Son is given”. (Isaiah 9:6)

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.

To make ready a group of people to meet our LORD Jesus Christ.

Be strong and glad! Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus

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 gives you food and joyful hearts”. 

Let us receive His blessings and share the blessings with many nations.

Thought:

True happiness is in Christ Jesus and it is not based on the things that 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 minds with thoughts that dwell on the things that are true and pure (Philip 4: 8). This was Paul’s secret as he faced imprisonment because of the Gospel of Christ Jesus and it can be ours as we face struggles in our daily life. Check your attitude. Examine, in the presence of God what we allow to enter our mind and what we choose to dwell on. We may need to make some positive changes. Seek to do what is right and walk humbly with the LORD Jesus Christ in this faith journey (Zephaniah 2: 3).

Let us be the Church (Romans 12:3-5) and be tentmakers like Aquila and Pricilla’s family (Acts 18:1-4; 18-20; 24-26). 

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus

 How did Christ’s Resurrection Influence your Spiritual Journey?

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:

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Romans 8: 11

Thought:

The Holy Spirit is God’s promise of eternal life for those who believe in Him. The Spirit is in us now by faith, and by faith, we are certain to live with Christ forever. He is the power source behind the spiritual rebirth of every Christian and He gives the power to live a victorious Christian life in this world.

 How did Christ’s resurrection influence your spiritual walk?

We can trust God with anything because the resurrection changes everything.

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

Where is our help coming from? 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
 
Greetings in Jesus Christ
 
Praise Him- for His love endures forever
 
Isaiah 43:1-3
43 But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob,    he who formed you, Israel:“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;    I have summoned you by nameyou are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,    I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers,    they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire,    you will not be burned;    the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the Lord your God,    the Holy One of Israelyour Savior;  
 
Doesn’t it bring peace and confidence to know that He made us, He redeemed us, He knows us by name. God knows everything, that there is no hiding from Him. He is all-powerful.
 
There is nothing that God cannot do, for He is the Lord God Almighty.
 
Omniscience: There is nothing that God does not know.
Omnipotence: God is All-Powerful, No one and nothing is more powerful than He. His power is inherent, part of His being as God.
Omnipresence: There is no place where God is not present. Absolutely nothing is beyond God’s reach. To be clear this is not saying that God is in everything
 
Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent these attributes of God mean we are never alone and never without help if you are a child of God.
We may not understand all that God allows to happen. The reason for our circumstances or for things that happen in this world may be a mystery to us but not to the Almighty God. 
 
Knowing who God is, what He is capable of and His Presence brings us great joy, peace, comfort, strength, and confidence. Our times are in His hands and we need not fear. He is Faithful, He is always there.
 
Where are we looking for help? 
Where is our help coming from? 
Can we say as in 
Psalms 121:1-2

1I lift up my eyes to the mountains—

where does my help come from?

2My help comes from the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.

 
Let it be.
Amen
 

God Bless.
