Hello family, I got peace! You got peace! God provides its in little everyday moments we just have to be paying attention. And when we find these moments There is such a richness and fullness of God. Material things wont fill the void that sin created in us. When we put God in that void, he fills us up and not just to the top but to overflowing find the peace in this chapterr of your life. Don’t stress about the next chapter God got it. We can be at peace we just have to choose to be that.
Just thank God for where you are at! Thank him for what he has given you. Thank him for the mighty long way he bought you! He saw fit to give breath to your body today. You know what that means you have a chance to Make god smile. You have another day to be used by Him. Awesome opportunities lay before you today!
27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified. – 1 Corinthians 9:27 NLT
Hello family, Right now God is teaching me self control. There are a few things i want and God said i can have them i just need to wait. It is hard waiting especially when i can go get it now! But i am seeing that when i rush in, giving in to the temptation to get the things i want now, it leads to more stress that if i would have waited.
God may have said you can have it but he says wait until this date or until this happens. Have some self-control. you will get it just wait. You will have so much more joy if you waited and no stress. your mind says go get it you can have it all now! Discipline put it in check that voice, wait on Gods green light.
42 “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” – Luke 22:42 NLT
Hello family, What if the cup did pass? What if our heavenly father said “ok you don’t have to do this.” For one, i would not be here. Every person ever born wound be doomed with no chance of hope. But we know that the cup did not pass and Chris token our place and made the ultimate sacrifice. for us.
One thing that my pastor mentioned in his message on Sunday was that there are certain things we must endure in order for us to become what God destined us to be. How can we show mercy if we have not be given mercy. How can we be wise if we haven’t made a few mistakes. When solomon asked for wisdom I’m sure God did not just drop it in his lap. Im sure there were some tough decisions to be made. I bet he made some mistakes but leaned from them.
This is also not just about you. Its about the lives you will affect. The people watch silently in the background seeing you go through the mess. So if you push away the situation that God designed to strengthen you to be a blessing to others, how will you make an impact?
Family, God knows all that we are going to do in this life. He sees all the choices (good and bad) that we will make. So he tweaks the bad ones so that they will benefit us. But if we run from the storm, if we run from pain we wont grow. we wont Get the benefit of learning from the pain.
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19 NLT)
Hello, family, this scripture has new meaning to me. Over the past three weeks, my family and I have been watching the A.D Bible series on NBC. It follows the apostles and the start of the early church.
The apostles preached the gospel where ever they could. In spite of opposition they still persevered. These men who were fishermen doctors and tax collectors. Jesus gave them a new purpose. Train up more disciples and baptizes them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This applies to us! Jesus commands us do just as the apostles did. You don’t need to be a pastor or bishop. We get too caught up in titles! What matters is that God commissioned you to do this. You don’t need a baptismal pool the apostles did not have that. They used any body of water God lead them to. Don’t think that God won’t use you to do the same. This applies to you!
Hello family, I am writing this with a heavy heart. A friend of mine has passed on from this life on to His eternal rest. I am happy for him because he is no longer suffering. At the same time I hurt not just because he is gone but becauase God was showing me the signs and i did not act on them.
I had opportunities to see Him one more time but i did not act on these opportunities. I just assumed He would get better and things would be ok. But that was not meant to be. This past Friday god called him home. I regret not calling him more i regret not listening to the warning signs. family do not wait till tomorrow to heal wounds, to make amends do it now! tomorrow is not promised.
56 The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law. 57 But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. – 1 Corinthians 15:56-57 KJV
Hello family, We have the victory! Over every situation that may arise. You may lose a battle but the war is already won! Don’t give your flesh or satan any credit. We are more than what we see in the mirror. If we would take off the shades blocking us from seeing our God potential. Not just potential but God potential. God sees us at our completion. He knows what state we are in now but He wants to lift our eyes up and show us who we are!
Who does that? Who else knows every dark dirty secret we have and does not abandon us but begins to process us. And even when we mess up in the process he brings correction to us and gets us back on track. Not even you mother or father can love you like that! We have been given the victory! WE WIN!!!!
18 to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’ – Acts 26:18 NLT
Hello family, I have been avoiding writing this devotion, but God won’t let me avoid it any longer. The events in Orlando are sad and tragic. Now we are sorting through our emotions, analyzing information as it comes in. Thinking about The shooting of Christina Grimmie and The Shooting at the nightclub, i asked God What do i do with all of this bad news. I am sick of it.
God said “pray for them! Pray for the shooter of Christina and the nightclub. Pray for the survivors of the nightclub.” The shooters did not get to the decision to do what they did over night. They are no better than us, born into sin. They need Christ just as much as we do. If God pulledback his grace from us for just a moment we would be in a tragic state. So lets Pray for the gunman in both events, pray that they come to Christ. Don’t dismiss them. Christ didn’t dismiss us.
Pray for the survivors of the nightclub shooting. Yes the life style is wrong, again they did not wake up over night and start that life. God showed me the trail of events that lead to my addiction to pornography. I did not hit rockbottom over night. God also showed me the people i had hurt but were still praying for me. Now its my turn to pray. We are the light of the world lets show it! God saved Saul and turned him into Paul.
