Our commitment to God is not always convenient, but it pleases our Father when we have a made up mind to be committed; doing it His way and not ours.
When we commit ourselves to doing it His way, it pleases Him because it takes faith and a surrendered heart in order to do so. To say "no" to those things that we know are not pleasing unto God nor glorify Him, and "yes" to the things that are and do, takes faith. If we remember Jesus and what He did for us on Calvary’s Cross, we can do it! We can be faithful.
Philippians 4:13 lets us know that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us! Be encouraged in the things of the Lord, Sisters and Brothers, and just like one man - because he believed and obeyed God - had faith and became a nation, we also can be victorious if we believe and obey God. We also can become all that God has called us to be. (Romans 4:3)
We must stay committed to the Christian call and obey and trust God in all things through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Not wavering. Jehovah-Jireh is not only a God who provides, but - so too - a God who prospers! Have faith... He will do it!
so that you are able to live in sustained victory;
glorifying Him in every area of your life.
As you bask in the things of God
made possible by JEHOVAH God,
I pray that your eyes are supernaturally opened
to see that which God has ordained for you to see and
that your ears are spiritually unplugged to hear
only that which God has ordained for you to listen to.
I pray that you are strengthened to resist
the road that leads to destruction;
keeping your eyes on the Cross and remembering
that Great One who was wounded for your transgressions
and bruised for your iniquities
so that you can live and not die.
Yes, live and not die!
In Jesus Christ Mighty Great Name I pray.
As Believers, we must strive to not only talk about God’s Word, but be about God’s Word studying and rightly dividing God's Word to show ourselves approved! (2 Timothy 2:15)
Holiness is not a look, it's a "sanctified" lifestyle. Being "sanctified" is not a religion it's a difference made by God. We have been "set apart" living in this world but no longer being of this world!
God's way may seem to be slower, less exciting, and harder than the world's but it's surer, truer, and more steadfast than the worlds. It's "anointed" and always on time because it's made possible by a God who cares about us and is able to prosper us materially as well as spiritually. A God who is able to keep us from falling, and present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy (Jude 1:24)..
Our Father knows that we need food on the table, shoes and sneakers for our children, and the ability to live in peace. As we trust and obey Him and look to Him as our source, it will happen. We don't have to chase the dollars. The dollars will find us. We don't have to chase the excitement. We will be the excitement!
Be encouraged in the things of the Lord, Brothers and Sisters! Have faith!
A Future in God
So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready to receive the gift that’s coming when Jesus arrives. Don’t lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel like doing. You didn’t know any better then; you do now. As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, “I am holy; you be holy.” (1 Peter 1:13-16)
God blesses us with beautiful autumn days during the fall season. The trees change colors; and as they continue to lose their leaves, we witness the fall gracefully preparing for the winter. While many folks – saved and unsaved - are also preparing for the winter, some are not, and they will be faced to confront what is known as the coldest season of the year on its own “wintery brutal” terms.
As Christian believers, however, and citizens of the Kingdom of God, we know that we are in this world but not of this world. We know that if we continue to “trust and obey” our Father God that He will protect us from all the “fiery darts” of the wicked one’s winter. We know that our preparation must be continual and that we must be ready in season and out of season by reading God’s Word, fasting, and praying.
Faith, prayer, and a verse a day will most certainly keep the devil at bay. Be ready when Jesus comes! He's coming back again!
Therefore you also be ready,
for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect
“Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
JEHOVAH GOD is still I AM, and there is no one or nothing more holy, powerful, creative, merciful, gracious, beautiful, natural, faithful, intelligent, wiser, protective or loving than the One God revealed as FATHER in creation, SON in redemption, and HOLY GHOST in the church. One GOD as Spirit was there in the beginning speaking life into existence all by His GLORIOUS SELF!
Everything that began owes its existence to a cause according to the “cause and effect” argument. The Principle of Causation determines that one phenomenon (the effect) is caused by another phenomenon. For example, where there is mental illness, there is brain damage; where there is a house, there is a builder; where there is light, there is electricity; and if you put your hand in the fire, it will burn. The American Transcendentalist and renowned philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson, who turned away from the Christian faith as an ordained Unitarian minister after his wife died of tuberculosis, was quoted as saying ““Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect.” “The man who grasps principles often can successfully handle his own methods; but the man who tries methods ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.”
One cannot acknowledge creation (nature, animals, human beings, etc.) without acknowledging the creator (God). Where there is creation, there is a creator and Jehovah God is still I AM.
When God the Father became human and revealed Himself as God the Son, He began an earthly ministry at the age of 30 by performing miracles, preaching, healing, teaching and calling His disciples. When teaching sinners about sin, He challenged the accusers to look at themselves before “condemning” another; in like fashion, He commanded the accused to “go and sin no more” (John 8). It was just that simple. Applied learning at its best. He didn’t spend time condemning the accused nor did He spend time condemning the accusers. He moved on after the teaching moment and continued to teach His disciples and followers as well as win souls for the Kingdom of God making declarative statements like: “I am the Light of the world: he who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life.”
Jesus didn’t waste time trying to convince folks of who He was because He knew He was who He was; and as disciples of the Gospel laboring in the harvest, we also don’t have to waste time trying to convince nonbelievers about who God is because Who He is, He is, and “He that comes to God must believe that He is…” (Hebrews 11:6) It is through His power and because of His wisdom souls are saved, healed, delivered, and set free. It is through His power and because of His wisdom men and women are brought to repentance willing to turn away from sin. Jesus, the Christ, is still LORD and JehovahGod is still I AM!Don’t get it twisted!
As I imagined this conversation taking place primarily about a mother and daughter who at one time in their lives both contemplated having an abortion, I thought about how grateful I was for believing in the God that I believe in.. That WONDERFUL COUNSELOR and MIGHTY GOD JEHOVAH, Who gives us the choice to choose – even HIM.
A choice to choose our own destiny while at the same time hoping we seek Him in the process. Hoping we seek Him even in the despair so that we can find His love and become aware of His Grace. Hoping we accept the Gift of Life through His only begotten Son, JESUS CHRIST, so that we can live and not die. Hoping we love Him enough to honor His Old Testament commandments even though we are under His New Testament Grace. And hoping we trust and obey Him in faith by choosing to love one another in obedience to what Jesus commanded. Now come with me, as we listen in... Female Baby: She chose life!

So much hate,
So much noise
But My God...
He did get through

It is God's hope that we accept, believe, and receive His Gift of Salvation through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, so that we can live and not die. That precious Gift that will enable us to “trust and obey” our Father by having faith in Him and believing He is working out every situation for our good.
God loves you and cares about you. The past is behind you; and as you walk into your future and take steps today in the now, our Father is willing to walk along side of you helping you through every situation. Seek Him while He may be found. Choose life!
