Dead Man Walking
The Bible tells us that life is but a vapor. So unfortunately, one day we will all die a physical death. For those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, our spirits will go to be with Christ. We will leave behind negative thought patterns and our sinful nature, And when Christ returns, He will give us new glorious bodies; free from guilt, shame, and death. Just take a moment to think about that feeling of freedom. AHHHH :) We will be dead to sin and al
Focus on Him
Romans 11:33-36 (MSG) Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out. Is there anyone around who can explain God? Anyone smart enough to tell him what to do? Anyone who has done him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice? Everything comes from him; Everything happens through him; Everything ends up in him. Always glory! Always praise! Yes. Yes.
Matthew 8:8-10(AMP) But the centurion replied to Him, “Lord, I am not worthy to have You come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man subject to authority [of a higher rank], with soldiers subject to me; and I say to one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, He was amazed and said to those who were following Him, “I tell you truthfully, I
Rejoice and Be Glad!
Psalms 5:11-12 But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits. For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor). Focus today on being joyful, be in high
He Loves Us
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." How great, you fell in love! You had a great relationship. Things happened, time happened, and guess what? You’re not in love anymore. Does this sound familiar? People grow old. They look different over time. They lose their charm. Life confronts you with difficulties and requirements. You must produce. You must work. You must de
Hear, Believe, Speak, Do
Exodus 3: 21-22 And I will give this people favor and respect in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed. But every woman shall [insistently] solicit of her neighbor and of her that may be residing at her house jewels and articles of silver and gold, and garments, which you shall put on your sons and daughters; and you shall strip the Egyptians [of belongings due to you]. The favor of God that was on the children of Israel c
Walk In Your Favor
Genesis 39: 21-23 But the Lord was with Joseph, and showed him mercy and loving-kindness and gave him favor in the sight of the warden of the prison. And the warden of the prison committed to Joseph’s care all the prisoners who were in the prison; and whatsoever was done there, he was in charge of it.The prison warden paid no attention to anything that was in [Joseph’s] charge, for the Lord was with him and made whatever he did to prosper. The favor of God that was on Joseph’
Live the Good Life
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. It is the plan, purpose, and Will of God for you to have a good life. But the quality of your life is not determined by the Will of God. The quality of your life is conceived by your thoughts, composed by your choices, confirmed by your words, and constructed by your day to day actions. So, if you want a better future you must
Who's In Your Circle?
1Corinthians 15:33 Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company corrupts good character.” It doesn’t matter what condition you may find yourself in, you can build a life of success. But one major decision will have to be made. Stop hanging around with those people who have a minus sign in front of their name. In other words, get from around negative folk. The people who are always complaining and blaming others for their circumstances. Those who are alwa
Be a God-Pleaser
1Thessolonians 4:1, Romans 8:7-8 "Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more." "For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God." There is no way you can please all people all th
