Hope When There Is No Hope

Have you been struggling with many different circumstances that you just have no answer for. Well you are not alone in this, there is hope when you think there is no hope.

God sees your heart and knows what is going on so don’t worry about what isn’t or is happening, allow Him to guide you through the darkest of days.

There is hope that tomorrow will be a s better day for you. What you are going through will not last.

We can only see what our eyes tell us, but it is what is unseen that we hope for and as we pray and have faith that God will show you the way, it is then that we can find the solution to what is wrong. When you are finding such things are happening to you, maybe it’s time to step back and wait for God to show you what to do. For He is in control, not us.

Be kind to people who frustrate you, be gracious to those who are not fair and be hopeful for all that God promises you. He will not leave you or forsake you, it is He who guides your path and makes a way. Now you must do your part and believe that He will.

Jesus tells us in John 15:5

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Learn & Grow

Last week I was at a Bible study and there was a woman there that was so full of the Holy Spirit, I was amazed that I found someone who is strong in faith, no wavering. I have met people over the years that spoke strongly in the word of God, but when I walked away I just didn’t feel that “holiness” that is connected to a faithful follower, I’m talking about someone with no issues, they can follow God but somehow the vain slips in and you just know they aren’t fully engaged in God.

This woman taught me something about myself, she taught me, I still have a long way to go yet in studying, denying myself, understanding scripture and fully devoting myself to God in the way that I should. So if I could rate her on her walk, I would place her at in the top 5 people I know that are fully devoted to the word and walking in it.

I love Bible studies because you think you know more than you do when you walk in, when there are people in the group that just know more than you! They may pray in a mighty way and place the line all at Jesus feet, it’s pretty amazing how they love Jesus. So I guess what I am saying to you today is, get involved in a Bible study, if you are studying alone that’s great too but honestly, it’s so much better when you can see another perspective on scripture, maybe there was a hidden nugget you didn’t even know was there (I get thrilled when I find one!).

Lastly, we always need to surround ourselves with godly people, because they help us to engage in the word, discuss it and apply it. So I encourage you today to go find one that moves your heart and mind in Christ Jesus. To listen and be discerning in what you hear. Be alert and on your guard and mostly grow as a Christian.

America, what happened?

Isaiah 16:10

 Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards;
no one sings or shouts in the vineyards;
no one treads out wine at the presses,
for I have put an end to the shouting.

For many years America grew and prospered, for many of us, we lived a good quiet life and God was the head of our lives. We went to church (some out of guilt, others for the love of Christ) and tried to obey God’s commandments and if we strayed, we would always have a conscience about our actions. This great country America, has now closed it’s doors on God, taking His commandments out of the schools, buildings and even some churches as people go their own way ignoring the Creator. God is patient and kind, He shows mercy, but for how long?

If everything you had today, all your wealth, house, family was gone, what would sustain your spirit? So it is when God takes everything from this earth, don’t act surprised when you read this, but God will destroy the earth, we do not know when but many are saying we are getting closer as signs and wonders fill the skies and the earth.

So then, if today, you were to meet God, what would you say?                                   Were you ashamed of Him?                                                                                           Did you stop someone from sharing the gospel with you?                                             How are you really preparing for the end of your life?

All these are important questions, as well as what did you do in God’s name for others? How did you serve Christ and partake in the lives of others?

My hope for you, brother and sister that you heed to the words of God through scripture and go to Jesus in prayer and thanksgiving as you repent of the sins you have done through your life. Listen, we all have fallen short of the grace of God, but it is God’s grace that saves you.

Shalom!

“In The Last Days”

Acts 2:17 ‘In the last days,’ God says,
‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your young men will see visions,
and your old men will dream dreams.

My friends, those of you that love the Lord, my prayer for you this day is to be strong in the Lord and He will lift you up. The persecution of Christians is coming in a fierce way. We will not have rights as time moves forward unless we stay in prayer and focus on Jesus. This is a pivotal time in History, things are changing and laws are being passed that do not adhere to Gods word. So that being said my friends, pray, pray, pray!

We are to love others and pray for our enemies even the ones that go against God, for we are not people’s judge, only God is. Leave it all to Him in these dark days. But we have the light of Christ, so be that for others!

Shalom!

Blessing & Faith

Isn’t it wonderful when you come through a storm in your life and at the end the blessing from God appears?

We just never know where God will lead us in storms, the storm may feel overwhelming and the situation won’t ever end or you don’t understand why things are going the way they are, what’s the hold up? But God has such an amazing outcome of blessing, doesn’t He?

You may never know what God’s plan is for your life, why you came into the world and what your steps will be. But instead of trying to figure it all out, surrender it all to God and see His mighty hand work in ways unimaginable and that my friends is where faith   sets in to you, having a lifestyle of waiting.

So I will leave you with this scripture for today:

Hebrews 11:1 

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

We must always:  Walk By Faith

We must always:
Walk By Faith

Gifts Fade-Jesus Lasts Forever

It’s about two weeks away from the celebration and remembrance of Christ, anticipated by the world. But how many are actually celebrating with this in mind? Other than Christians that are celebrating the joy of an anticipated savior. The other people are anticipating gifts and may not even know the whole reason behind it.

Often you see ad’s for extravagant gifts that people give to each other or “Buy Now!” so you can make that over budget purchase that is regretted later. For What? This is not the true spirit of Christmas. People scurrying at “Black Friday” trampling others for gifts that will fade away over time and be forgotten.

I say to you the one and only gift that truly matters is Christ and that gift is free!

So when you make that heavy-duty purchase, you know the one you can’t afford or maybe that person doesn’t appreciate (or does) just remember that 2000 years ago the most beautiful and glorious free gift was given to us and if you want to share this free gift of Jesus, just quote this and ask if people know why they celebrate and gather

“Joy to the world, the Savior’s come, let earth receive it’s King!”

Maybe they don’t know who the King is-perfect intro into what Jesus did for us when He came.

Now go, make disciples!

Shalom

Where is God’s Hand In This All?

Chaos and more chaos, where is God’s hand in this all?

The Lord is working in ways we will never understand, for the days are coming when there will be no peace to be found at all. But we must be ready as Christians for the days ahead. We have to ask God where are you in this? Where is Jesus and when will this be over?

Look at the facts, people have turned away from the faith, churches are uprising in places that only can be put asunder. But we must stay in prayer for the days ahead, there are Christians all over the world that are praying for safety, do you pray for them? We are blessed to be able to sit in quiet confidence in our homes but these persecuted Christians are running for their lives and seeking safe havens. If you would take the time to pray for them, then they will know in their hearts that God is in control through prayer and supplication.
I hope you are pressing forward my friends and ask you for prayers not only for those Christians but for all Christians who are struggling at this time.

Shalom

Cleaning Out Your Heart

The grace that the Lord bestows upon you is a peace that is beyond your understanding.

But should we grasp for the things in this world, we make known what it is that motivates us to live. Are we living for Christ? Or are we living for the world and what it offers. The reason why we ask ourselves these questions is because even though we grasp at the things that are around us what really matters is what we do for the Lord and how we show Him our heart .

So allow me to say that cleaning up the things that drive you is like cleaning up a sink, the outer parts are dirty, you start there, then as you clean the inner, you realize that everything that ever really mattered before no longer holds value for you. It’s like you’ve cleaned your outer parts but the inner needed the attention. This part of you that has become the object of the cleaning is seen throughout the epistles of Paul as he writes and is held captive so that Christ cleans his mind so he may tell us how. We rely on Christ for the cleansing because His cleansing is what makes us whole.

So I say to you, learn from what you were and now can become. Cleaning of heart, soul and mind and through prayer , you can achieve beyond your deepest needs these things. Through the Love of Christ you have eternal home with Him forever.

Shalom
