“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.

Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Self-Analysis

Dear all,

Let us do some self-analysis in the presence of God and make wise choices in our walk with the LORD.

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

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+8&version=NIV

Thought:

 As we are the children of God we have our Heavenly Father and He loves us. He displayed His love for us In Christ-Jesus on the Calvary. 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. Moreover, He gives us the power to live a victorious Christian life in this world.

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).

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.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Samuel+24%3A25&version=NIV

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).

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

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)

How can we know the way to God?

Dear all,

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

Word: John 14 – Jesus Comforts His Disciples – Jesus is the way to the Father

14 “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And you know the way where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. 7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” – John 14: 1 – 7

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+14&version=NASB

Thought: LORD Jesus is the way to the Father – This is one of the most basic and important passages in Scripture.

How can we know the way to God? Only through Christ Jesus. Trust Jesus to take you to the Father and all the blessings in Christ Jesus of being God’s child will be yours.

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us.  yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalms 90: 17

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

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.
