Embrace God and The Things Above

Embrace God and The Things Above

Welcome each day praising and embracing God and His love, promises, guidance and goodness! You can find victory in the battle for your mind, soul, peace, joy (and sanity!) by renewing and focusing your thoughts on the good Lord & the “things above” and not letting sin, negativity, materialism and the people & things of this world bring you down. When we remember that heaven, not earth, is our true home it gives us a better prespective of what’s important in life.. and not to get so caught up in our every day worries and business. It helps us to enjoy and appreciate all that we have in Christ today and to remain humble, armoured and willing servants. Todays verse: Col 3:2 NKJV “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” **Read: Eph 4:8 & Rom 12:2...

Do Not Be Afraid

Do Not Be Afraid

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “…an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. ‘Joseph, son of David,’ the angel said, ‘do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit.’ ” (Matthew 1:20, NLT) Have you ever felt overwhelmed or even afraid of what God has called you to do? Maybe you were pursuing a dream or goal and things didn’t turn out the way you planned. Joseph had planned to take Mary as his wife, but when he found out she was pregnant, he didn’t know what to think. He was afraid that he might be making a mistake because things didn’t turn out the way he planned. But, God sent a messenger in a dream to reassure Joseph that he was on the right path. Today let me reassure you that God knows right where you are, and He knows how to get you to where you need to be. Even when things don’t go the way you planned, His hand is on you. Do not be afraid. Trust that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf, and that He will lead you into the life of blessing that He has prepared for you. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father in heaven, I choose to trust in You. Even when things don’t go the way I planned, I know You are at work in my life. Thank You for Your perfect love which casts out all fear. I love You and surrender every area of my life to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.  ...

God Goes Too!

God Goes Too!

God Goes Too! “But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.” (1 Corinthians 6:17) I once heard about a great man of God who looked in the mirror every day when he put on his suit and said, “Suit, everywhere you go today, God goes in you.” And you know, he’s right. If you have united yourself to God by receiving Jesus as Lord, everywhere you go today…God goes too! As believers, we need to start becoming more conscious of that. We need to train ourselves to be constantly aware of God inside of us, talking to us, teaching us, counseling us, empowering us, and enduing us with...

The Heart of the King

The Heart of the King

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.” (Proverbs 21:1) Think about that for a moment! God has reserved the right to override the will of a nation’s leader, if need be, to see that His people are governed according to His will. What’s more, God will hear the prayer of any government leader. Even if he’s the worst reprobate in the whole world. He heard the prayer of old King Nebuchadnezzar. Believe me, that means He’ll listen to any leader! You see, Nebuchadnezzar was king of Babylon. He was an ungodly ruler of an ungodly nation. However, he’d taken captives from the land of Judah. He had some of God’s people under his authority. So, God began to deal with him. Again and again, God warned him, “Nebuchadnezzar, you’re going to lose your mind if you don’t straighten up.” And, sure enough, he went just as crazy as could be. He stayed that way for years too. Then one day he cried out to God and God heard him. Despite his status as a heathen king of a heathen nation, God intervened repeatedly in Nebuchadnezzar’s life and heard him when he finally cried out for help. Why? Because he had God’s people under his rule! That same principle still holds true today. If we’ll open the way through prayer, God will deal with our leaders! If we will humble ourselves in unity and pray, God can change the injustice and corruption that exist in our country, or any country for that matter. He’ll change the hearts of everyone from the White House on down to make sure His children are governed justly. Make it a point to pray for our leaders today! Scripture Study:  Daniel...

Let Your New Man Out

Let Your New Man Out

Let Your New Man Out “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” (Romans 12:1) When you made Jesus Christ Lord of your life, you became what the Bible calls a “new creature.” Inside, you’re not the same person you were before. You have the nature of God born into you. But it’s not enough for you just to have that new nature on the inside. You have to let it take over the outside as well.   Don’t expect that to happen automatically. You have to make a decision to bring your body into obedience to the new man within you. You must determine to do what Romans 6:12 says and “let not sin…reign in your mortal body.”   I know that sounds tough, but remember, you’re not in this alone. You have a Helper inside you to enable you to carry out that decision. His name is the Holy Spirit. He’s there to strengthen you. He gives you the power to put sin out of your life and under your feet.   Make that decisive dedication of your body today–and let that new man that’s on the inside of you begin to come out! Scripture...
