Are You Really Alone?

Life can have seemingly endless hard twists and turns that makes you tired, and feeling alone and defeated.

As you deal with the feelings of being alone, fiercely fight the "woe is me" syndrome, and know that you have God working on your behalf, and you have other Christians to pray and walk with you.  Therefore, get up with truth in God's Word, and join with other believers to strive for the victory we have in Christ.


"No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to humanity. God is faithful, and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape so that you are able to bear it" (I Cor. 10:13).

Christians, we need God and we need each other so let's do healthy life together (Hebrews 10:24-25; Rom. 12:4-5).


God Bless,

Help Others for the Good?

 

God will show you someone who needs edification (building up) in some area of their life.

Pray and ask God for wisdom, courage, and strength as you reach out to them with pure motives.

You will be surprised how people will respond with thanksgiving.  What God leads you do is just what they need.


"Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. 2 Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification" (Rom. 15:1-2).


God Bless,

Ready for Death and Dying?


God said in Psalm 139:16, that all the days of your life were recorded in God's book before you were born.

Hence, you have no real say over the length of your days.

You do however have say over the quality of your life.

You can choose to obey God and love Him with your total person, and love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:28-31).

You can choose to live the Holy Spirit controlled life and display the fruit of the Spirit (Eph. 5:18; Gal. 5:22-26).

You can choose full and meaningful life (John 10:10).

Then when your day to depart this life comes you can transition with total confidence (II Tim. 4:6-8).

  1. You are ready to leave here.
  2. You fought the good fight in serving God.
  3. You fulfilled your God given purpose.
  4. You kept your faith in God.
  5. You anticipate your reward from God.


Christians, live to love and serve Jesus, and death and dying will be a pleasant transition from labor to reward.


God Bless,

Stormproof Your Life

Life has swift changes, tragedy, and disappointments, that are like  storms in our lives.

We can stormproof our lives by continually hearing and obeying the words of Jesus (Matt. 7:24).

This is a picture of continually thinking about something Jesus said (such as treat people the way you want to be treated, or stop worrying and seek God's kingdom and His righteousness, etc).  This is how you build a stormproof life that will handle any storm that comes your way.


God Bless,

Did you know?


Did you know that God is speaking to Pastor's all over this world so that you can hear a word just for you and be built up in the faith each weekend (Eph. 4:11-13).  

Did you know that most Pastor's are honest, hard working, godly members of the body of Christ (yes we do have some wolves in sheep's clothing).

You will know the Pastor's after God own heart by their fruits (Matt. 7:15-20).


Prioritize each week and make your way to the church in which God has called you.  Your Pastor is studying and praying before to give you an encouraging word from heaven.


God Bless,

Is God Whispering In Your Ear?


Jesus said those who do the will of My Father in heaven are going to heaven (Matt. 7:21-23).

Jesus spoke about us living a changed life as evidenced by our obeying God's established kingdom principles (a great list of God's principles for every area of life is found in the sermon on the Mountain (Matt. 5-7). 

Christians, read Matt. 5-7, and practice even the hard parts, and listen for God to whisper in your ear each day before your bedtime: "well done My good and faithful servant."


God Bless,

Who can I Affirm?


Who can you encourage with a word of encouragement?  

Look for someone doing good work, someone discouraged, someone that God put on your heart, and encourage them.

Look at what God said about this: "Like apples of gold in settings of silver Is a word spoken in right circumstances" (Prov. 25:11).

Christians, ask God to show you the right person to affirm, the right time, and the right word to share.


God Bless,
