Rom. 5:8 (AMP) “But God clearly shows and proves His own love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
God wants you to be His friend. He is not interested in religion. God wants a relationship with you. Do you know why you are here right now and not six feet under? Do you know why you are not in other horrible places that you could possibly be in today? Read the rest of this entry
Sng.2:15 [TPT] “You must catch the troubling foxes, those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship. For they raid our budding vineyard of love to ruin what I’ve planted within you. Will you catch them and remove them for me? We will do it together.”
There is no legitimate battle between an intellectual faith and a passionate faith. A truly intellectual faith will set your soul on fire! We have to stop thinking we must pick one side. Read the rest of this entry
Ps.124:2 (KJV) “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us 3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us… 6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.”
It is truly alarming how some people depend on the approval of other human beings. There are people that just want people to like them and they are willing to do anything to secure that. Read the rest of this entry
Luke 10:34 “…Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. 35The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver coins, telling him, ‘Take care of this man. If his bill runs higher than this, I’ll pay you the next time I’m here.’”
To be able to show compassion, you have to see people how God sees them. God does so much for us but do we always do the right thing at the right time?
Luke 10: 34 “Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him.”
The Samaritan “felt compassion” for the wounded man. Some equate compassion with wishy-washy sentiments and weakness,
John 15:10 “When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love”
God says rejoice but you have to choose to rejoice. There are two dimensions to this command – there is the prophetic dimension and there is the instructional dimension.
The Instructional Dimension: I have discovered that there is nothing better than rejoicing. There is nothing stronger than joy. In fact, joy is such a strong force. It is unstoppable. God is giving you a life- long instruction and that is to rejoice – it is a command. When people question your rejoicing, tell them you are obeying God because God has commanded you to rejoice.
Phil.4:4 “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!”
The writer of this Scripture felt the need to repeat the word “rejoice” because it is worthy of emphasis. Always be full of joy in the Lord – always, I dare to say it again Rejoice! Rejoice because satan is the owner of sorrow. It is not yours so do not carry it. Phil.4:4 “Keep on rejoicing in the Lord at all times. I will say it again: Keep on rejoicing!” [ISV, with emphasis]. I pray that in your house it would be said that rejoicing is constant, in Jesus Name.
Deut.18:9 “…be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations… 10 For example, …fortune-telling …sorcery …interpret omens …witchcraft, …cast spells 11…mediums or psychics… 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord…” [with emphasis]
God says anyone whether pastors, prophets, evangelist, apostles, believer, non-believer, whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord. The fact that people throw a cloak of Pentecostalism over fortune telling does not change it from divination as far as heaven is concerned and heaven detests it. Deut.18:13 “But you must be blameless before the Lord your God. 14The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the Lord your God forbids you to do such things.” Let your ears hear what the Spirit is saying.
1 Pet.3:3 “Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. 4 You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.”
1 Pet.3:5 “This is how the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They put their trust in God and accepted the authority…” God is just amazing! Right here in His Word, He has laid out the keys to lasting beauty. Do not get me
wrong; as a lady you must take care of yourself. But you are not to be completely focused on looking good, sounding right and smelling good. If you are not good within, all those things will not matter. Imagine buying a designer perfume, the package came with the designers seal so you have no reason to Read the rest of this entry
Ps.63: 3 “Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you! 4 I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. 5 You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy. 6 I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you…”
C. S. Lewis says, “He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God only”. What he is saying is if Brother A has God, a house, five cars, a beautiful wife, twenty children, and everything he wants and Brother B has God, no house, and nobody wants to marry him, C. S. Lewis says, Brother A does not have more than Brother B. Wow! So what about the other things? The truth is as long as you have God, you have everything because God is all. In fact Brother B will discover that in the Presence of God there is fullness of joy and at God’s right hand are all the things he is even looking for – the pleasures forever more.
