1 John 3:2 (NIV) "Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is."
Lord Jesus, help me to prepare for Your call. Amen.
Phil 3:10 AMP - “[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him…”
The Apostle Paul was radically in love with Jesus, so much so that it was His life’s ambition to know Him. The result was that he became one of the greatest men of God who has ever lived. Make it your life’s ambition to progressively get to know Jesus. He will radically change your life around!
Mathew 6:31-33 (KJV) "Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."
Our Lord points out that it is unreasonable for us to be anxious, worry about how we live. But we must make our relationship with Him the dominating focus of our lives and be cautiously carefree about everything else. Jesus is saying that the greatest concern of life is to place our relationship with God first and everything else second.
Proverbs 10:17 (NKJV) "He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, But he who refuses correction goes astray."
Nothing is as permanent, constant and uncontrollable as change. God moments require change. To be in the way of life we must be open to instruction, learn new ways and be open to new ideas. If you don’t want change in your ways you can expect to go nowhere in life. Be Willing to Change.
Mark 5:34 (KJV) "And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague."
There are times when our lives are broken by others or by ourselves. Either way, when something is broken, not only does it hurt, but it stops working. You may be in a place where you are hurting or something in your life has stopped working. If you are, we have good news for you today. Jesus Makes WHOLE. He makes the dead live.
Psalms 37:5 (NKJV) "Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass."
The Kingdom of God does not function in the realm of logic but in the realm of faith. Sometimes we refer to our problems as the “real world”, and the Bible as great for church on Sunday only. If we want to triumph in life and see God bring to pass what He has promised in our lives, we must commit our ways to Him, when things are easy and when they are hard.
Colossians 3:2 (AMP) "And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth."
We can triumph in Christ in our minds (with our thoughts).What we set our minds on…becomes us.When our hearts and minds are in agreement, we have peace, confidence, stability and strength. But when these are not in agreement- they causes confusion, worry and doubt. Keep your mind in line with the Word of God.
Hebrews 10:35-36 (NKJV) "Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:"
In the mind of God there is no helpless situation. That is why we will never give up or quit. God does not write anybody or anything off. Your confident trust in the Lord is your key to triumph. Stand your ground and Call upon the Lord in Faith. Amen!!!
