Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
No matter how many riches you may have accumulated in life, if your heart is not focused on God than in the end you have nothing. True wealth is found only in knowing Jesus Christ and honoring Him.
Proverbs 8:17 (NKJV) "I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me."
Those who seek God’s kingdom first from the time they are awake in the morning, will be given mercies and compassion that will be new every day.God will equip them to put the needs of others before their own and He will command a blessing to them.May the cause of Jesus Christ come before anything else that tries to distract the attention in our lives.
Acts 4:13 “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”
As the disciples walked and lived in His “space” it became so obvious that although people all around them knew that the disciples were untrained and uneducated, they were excited and could see that they had been with Jesus.
Acts 5:12 “The apostles were performing many miracles signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers were meeting regularly at the Temple in the area known as Solomon’s Colonnade.”
Grace was so powerful that the whole building shook. Grace was so great it enabled the apostles to work many miracles, signs and wonders. Grace is real and provides supernatural power to make things happen also through you today!
Proverbs 8:17-18 &21 (NKJV) " I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness. That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries."
Freedom in Christ Jesus is complete freedom, which includes financial freedom. God's purpose for us is to be financially independent of worldly restrictions & bondages. To be free of all debt, of every lack and of greed. Such liberty is in it's self -a test of our good stewardship and generosity. The LORD has called all believers to generously finance The Gospel and build His Kingdom.
Proverbs 16:3 (NLT) "Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed."
In everything we do we need to acknowledge the King and place all of our plans before Him for approval, and then and only then, will we truly see Kingdom standard success!
a) Judges 16:20 “and he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him.”
b) Acts 3:6 “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have, give I thee; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
Choose your words wisely.
Acts 4:33 (KJV) "And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all."
The early Christians were commanded not to speak or teach any more in Jesus’ Name. They just prayed, asked God to turn the power up, and give them boldness and as a result great grace came upon them all. Has the devil threatened you lately? Turn up the power, keep on talking and living by faith and don’t back down. I guarantee you, He will do it and you will discover what great grace is really all about.
Proverbs 4:10-12 "Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, And the years of your life will be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. 12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, And when you run, you will not stumble."
An athlete is coached and trained to the peak of fitness and made ready to compete. The LORD has prepared and equipped you to serve Him. You are ready do what He has called you to do. Now go, obey Him.
Psalm 31:14-15 (NLT) "But I am trusting you, O LORD, saying, “You are my God!” My future is in your hands. Rescue me from those who hunt me down relentlessly."
We have an enemy that is constantly on the prowl to stop the call of God on our lives, but be encouraged today because you have the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Alpha and the Omega on our side. He won’t just call us but He will deliver, empower, encourage and walk with us to fulfil the call. AMEN!!
