Be-Brave in Christ Jesus – God is Our Refuge and Strength

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.

Let us Renew our Vision and Confidence in Christ Jesus

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:  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 18 – 20.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)

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

Be brave and courageous! Our future is secure in Christ Jesus because he knows all about it.

Stand firm In Christ

The Lord of the Armies is with us. We stand still and know that He is God! (Psalms 46:9-11).

“JOYFUL JOURNEY WITH GOD IS INITIATED AND IGNITED IN LORD JESUS CHRIST BY THE POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT”

Plague on Israel was Stopped – II Samuel 24:25

Dear all,

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

Word: II Samuel 24:25 says that “David built an altar to the Lord there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then the Lord answered his prayer in behalf of the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped.”

Thought:

We are here to intervene like Abraham (Genesis 18), Daniel (Daniel 9), Esther (Esther 8) and our LORD Jesus Christ (John 17). Let us stand in the gap for God’s healing touch on people’s hearts (Ezekiel 22:30) and may God hear our prayers and let this plague be stopped by Him.

The Lord of the Armies is with us. We stand still and know that He is God! (Psalms 46:9-11).

“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.

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

Word: Prayer: Matthew 6:10 – “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

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

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.

Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

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.

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

Prayer: Two-way communication

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 of God:

At the beginning of your supplications, the command was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain an understanding of the vision. Daniel 9: 23

Thought: Prayer: Two-way communication

Prayer is an excellent bridge between Our Father in Heaven and us through our Loving Lord and Savior Jesus Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit. It is a precious gift that is given exclusively for HIS people. It is a very basic discipline of a born again Christian. Prayer is not to change God but to change our self, according to God’s desire. We have to practice the praying habit according to our role model, Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 5:7, Matthew 26: 39 & 42). It is possible because He has promised us the Helper Holy Spirit. The word of God says in Zechariah 4:6 – Not by might, nor by power but by my spirit says the Lord of Hosts.

Do we have Authentic Friends in Christ-Jesus?

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: Mark 2: 1 – 12

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+2%3A1-12&version=NIV

Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Verses 3 – 5.

Thought:

Jesus came not only to heal physical problems but also to solve the sin problem. If we have not yet come to know Jesus, we are paralyzed in spirit, as powerless to help ourselves as was this paralyzed man. If our faith is still too weak to carry us to the point of healing, the faith of “four friends” may be enough to get us there. Adapted from Every Man’s Bible, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
