Morning Coffee 1/31/15 By Grace Through Faith. (not mere words)

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.  Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.  For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:8-10 NLT)

Hello family! God has used a fellow sister in the Lord to show me an error in yesterday’s devotion. I have corrected that error on yesterday’s devotion. But God is leading me to continue to set things right! Family God extended us His grace by sending Jesus Christ to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins. We then place our faith in Christ and are made new. “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10 NLT) through our faith in Christ we begin to walk out the example that Christ set for us!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 1/30/15 Relationship Not Religion! Pt2

mc

“When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the lord God among the trees.  Then the lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” He replied, “I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.” “Who told you that you were naked?” the lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”” (Genesis 3:8-11 NLT)

Hello family! Sin separates us from God. Before Adam and Eve sinned they had it good! Unrestricted direct connection with God! No stress or worries, everything that they needed was within arm’s reach! But when Adam ate the forbidden fruit there was a connection break physically and spiritually. God had to kick Adam and Eve Out of the garden. So now starts the process of the biggest reset in history. That is Why Christ had to come and be the perfect sacrifice for our sins.

You see one day everything will be made new heaven and earth (see Revelations)! Things will be the way it should be! Us (children of God) serving worshipping spending time with our God, our Heavenly father for all eternity!

I don’t want to close this devotion without giving an opportunity you to become a citizen of the Kingdom of God, to have a relationship with Him. Adam disobeying God caused sin to enter the world, sin became part of our DNA. We can’t be good enough for God, us on our best day is still filthy to God. And Without Christ we would spend eternity in Hell! That is why God sent his only Son (Jesus Christ) to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins. God the Son took on human flesh and endured every temptation and trial that we could ever go through. He did not sin He endured them all! The blood that he shed on the cross covered all your sins to save us from eternity in hell.

Family this is a heart matter. God wants you to be in right relationship with Him. You may ask “how do i get back in right relationship with God? Here is how.

“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10 NLT) When you do this you are turning away from your old life and turning to walk in your new life in christ. You have started a new life style!

If you accepted Christ as your lord and Savior please let me know! You have made the best decision ever. journy you have started will have difficulites but God’s Holy Spirt is there to guide you. This is not going to be easy wakling with Christ. But you are not doing it alone! You now rely apon God to get you through the challenges ahead!

I don’t want to leave you unsupported. leave a comment on the blog or send me an email at morningcoffeedevo@gmail.com Find a bible teaching church! Ask God to lead you, get a bible and start reading and studying it!

Morning Coffee 1/29/15 Relationship Not Religion! Pt1

mc

 

“Then Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit.  At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart,” (Matthew 27:50-51 NLT)

Hello family! Let me give you some history before we continue. The veil separated the holy of holies form the holy place in the temple. This veil was by no means your standard curtain. The veil in the temple of Jerusalem was about thirty feet wide, sixty feet high, and four inches thick. Once a year a priest would enter to make sacrifices for the sins of the people. A common person could not enter the holy of holies only a priest did this.

There was no relationship between God and the people. Instead there was rituals and practices! That is not what God intended when he made Adam and Eve! That is why Christ came to be the final ultimate sacrifice of our sins. So we now have direct access to God, we can speak with him one no one without a high priest.

Relationship not religion!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 1/28/15 I AM! (God Always Is)

mc

“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.” (Revelations 1:8 NLT)

Hello family! God is always current! God has no end! He is infinite! He cannot fail! He is the definition of consistency! There is nothing that God cannot provide! Just ask the woman with the issue of blood! Doctors tried, but failed to help her. For twelve years she dealt with this. She pushed through the crowed to touch Jesus and she was instantly healed because of her faith! God is your provider, the wealth of His kingdom is endless!  So when troubles come don’t let your faith waiver! God is not going to fail you! He was with you in the storm two months ago, and He is with you now in this storm! Whatever it is God has it! Just trust Him!

God Is Always Current!

Morning Coffee 1/27/15 Excuses! Excuses! Excuses!

mc

“But Moses protested to God, “Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11 NLT)

“But Moses protested, “If I go to the people of Israel and tell them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you,’ they will ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what should I tell them?” (Exodus 3:13 NLT)

“But Moses protested again, “What if they won’t believe me or listen to me? What if they say, ‘The lord never appeared to you’?” (Exodus 4:1 NLT)

“But Moses pleaded with the lord, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.” (Exodus 4:10 NLT)

“But Moses again pleaded, “Lord, please! Send anyone else.” (Exodus 4:13 NLT)

Hello family! Moses gave God every excuse, why he could not be the one to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. I have been like Moses a few times, God would give me a task to do and I would use every excuse I could to get out of doing what He asked me to do. I eventually did what God was asking me to do! If we did not have the gifts and ability to complete the task God would ask someone else to do it! God knows what He has placed in you, He created you! He will make provision in the areas you lack. So we don’t have any excuse for us not to do what God told us to do! Whatever fear you have, let it go! Whatever doubt, cast it out! Go! And go NOW! Do What He called and made you to do!

No excuses! And No Buts!

Morning Coffee 1/26/15 Enduring The Temporary For The Eternal 

mc

 

 

“It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.  For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? ” For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power.  But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” (1 Corinthians 15:52-58 NLT)

Hello Family. Paul is explaining how our mortal bodies will give way to our spiritual bodies, when Christ calls all the saints home to heaven forever. These sin contaminated bodies are nothing compared to the spiritual bodies God will give us. This physical body comes with many challenges. It will develop aches and pains, we have to discipline it because it desires the things of this world. But don’t be discouraged! Any trial or suffering you go through is temporary! Christ crucifixion did not last forever, even that ended. He is now at the right hand of the father in his glorified body!

Family, whatever difficulties you are having, stand firm in Christ and endure! Remember these mortal bodies are contaminated by sin so they cannot pass into eternity! This earth is not our home! Be encouraged, keep following the example Christ set, stay disciplined to the word of God. We are enduring the temporary for the eternal!

Morning Coffee 1/25/15 It’s Personal Pt2 (Fasting)

Morning Coffee 1/25/15 It’s Personal Pt2 (Fasting)

“And when you fast, don’t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. I tell you the truth, that is the only reward they will ever get. But when you fast, comb your hair  and wash your face. Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. And your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:16-18 NLT)

Hello Family! It’s January, and a majority of churches are beginning or in the middle of their beginning of the year fast. You may be fasting personally outside of your church corporate fast. Fasting just like prayer is personal between you and God. We are not to use it to get approval from people. Fasting is a heart matter, you set aside food and other pleasures in order to seek God more, to grow stronger in him, to break down barriers that have held you back. There is no need for us to announce to the world that we are fasting it is not for them! But something personal between you and God!

Fasting! It’s Personal!

Morning Coffee 1/24/15 It’s Personal Pt1 (Prayer)

Morning Coffee 1/24/15 It’s Personal Pt1 (Prayer)

“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth,that is all the reward they will ever get.    But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again.    Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!” (Matthew 6:5-8 NLT)

Hello family! Prayer is not a tradition! Prayer is our personal communication with God. Prayer is not stringing together a bunch of eloquent words! Our prayers are not meant to impress the people around us, Prayer is meant for us to press on the heart of God. It is personal communication from your heart to God’s when you pray in a group and you are praying, don’t pray to satisfy the people. Pray from your heart to God’s! Give praise to God, give thanks to him for all He has done and is doing, Ask for forgiveness of sins you have committed, then come ask him to provide you needs.

Prayer! It’s Personal!

 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 1/23/15 Pour God In

Hello family! God Is pulling out things that once held me back. He is emptying me of the stuff that hindered me from Him! I don’t have room for the old habits. God has replaced them with a desire for his will, the willingness to not procrastinate when he tells me to do something. Just as you pour water into a dark cup of coffee, the water pushes the coffee out until it is all water. That is what I have been experiencing over the past few days! When God pulls stuff out make sure you Pour God In! There won’t be room for anything else!

“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.  For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:10-12 NLT)
