Faith Moves

Matt. 5:8 When you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right, then you can see God in the outside world.” (MSG).

Your heart and your mind determine what you see through your eyes. It is not your physical eyes that determine what you see. It is your heart and your mind that determines what you see not your eyes. Read the rest of this entry

New Reality

Gal.2:20 (KJV) “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

Rom.12:2Don’t let the world squeeze you into its mold, but let God remake you so that your whole attitude of mind [your person] is changed.” (Phillips, paraphrased, emphasis added). The Lord wants to make you up. Read the rest of this entry

To Cancel

2 Cor.5:17 “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. ‘he old life is gone; a new life has begun!”

How does this resurrection power benefit me? Over the next few days, God Himself will unpack this truth and help us see clearly the difference resurrection power makes in our lives. The first thing is, Resurrection Power Is The Power To Cancel Your Past. Read the rest of this entry

Freed

Rom. 3:23-24 “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.” (emphasis added).

Being a Christian is summed up in one word and that word is “Done”. It is because of what Christ has done that we can do what He has called us to do! We stand tall not on the authority of our dos [prayers, giving, serving], but on the authority of the complete work of Jesus on the cross of Cavalry. Read the rest of this entry

One & Only

Ez. 34:11-12 “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search and find my sheep. I will be like a shepherd looking for his scattered flock. I will find my sheep and rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on that dark and cloudy day.

 

Yesterday, I said that it is how Jesus treats His sheep that made me determine that ONLY Jesus will be my Shepherd. The question is, how does Jesus treat His sheep? When I am hurt, how does Jesus respond? Like sheep, you and I are going to get hurt in this world. Read the rest of this entry

Only Jesus!

John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.”

We often start the New Year with a lot of zest, a lot of energy, and we are fired up. But sometimes, in a few weeks or one month, we have taken some hits and lost bearing. Fear creeps in and we begin to doubt all that we set out to achieve. Most times, what we need is for God to realign us. Read the rest of this entry

The Old, The New

Col.1:16-17 “for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth…  Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together

Jesus holds all creation together! Everything is held together by Him including the demons, the angels, and the forces. If Jesus says, “Stop!”, everything stops. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we command every affliction in your life to stop. Read the rest of this entry

About Time

Luke 5:8,10-11 “When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m such a sinful man.” Jesus replied to Simon, “Don’t be afraid! From now on you’ll be fishing for people!” … they left everything and followed Jesus.

It is God’s goodness and His kindness that leads to repentance. When people come to the realization that there is nowhere and no one outside God that can heal, save, deliver, and renew, they genuinely turn to God. Peter had Read the rest of this entry

This Jesus

John 4:23-24 “But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

Please read John 4:1-27. Every time I read the Word of God it is just beautiful. As you engage God’s Word, I pray that God Himself will breathe upon you, in Jesus Name. Read the rest of this entry

Extravagant

Eph.1:7-8 (NRSV) “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace  that he lavished on us…”(emphasis added).

God lavishes His grace upon us and that is really comforting. There were a lot of children in my house while we were growing up. At meal time, the food available was limited, Read the rest of this entry
