Jeremiah 10:23 I know, LORD, that our lives are not our own. We are not able to plan our own course.
Help us to involve you in our decisions, not make you take a back seat. May your name be glorified.
Romans 14:7 For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone.
One of the devil’s destructive weapon, is to get us to curse God. Doubt is good if it brings you closer to God but it is sin if it moves you away from God. Job 3:11 “Why wasn’t I born dead? Why didn’t I die as I came from the womb?
As Christians we must learn that every situation you are in, God is in it and He has given the green light. Always remember that God allows situations for his glory. When the devil plans to destroy, God will come and whisk us away. If all were to go right in our life, we won’t see a reason to praise God.
Romans 5:3-5 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
Not all problems are bad for us. Some are the ones that bring us closer to God.
When hard times comes, what is your confession.
Matthew 5:45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Whether you follow Him or not He still gives the blessings that have been portioned for you but time will come when our deeds will be used to judge us.
Mark 8:36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
The assignment is temporary.Matthew 27:3-4 When Judas, who had betrayed him, realized that Jesus had been condemned to die, he was filled with remorse. So he took the thirty pieces of silver back to the leading priests and the elders. “I have sinned,” he declared, “for I have betrayed an innocent man.” “What do we care?” they retorted. “That’s your problem.”
As we celebrate Easter weekend be reminded of what happened to Jesus on the way to the cross.
Matthew 27:27,29-31 Some of the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into their headquarters and called out the entire regiment. They wove thorn branches into a crown and put it on his head, and they placed a reed stick in his right hand as a scepter. Then they knelt before him in mockery and taunted, “Hail! King of the Jews!” And they spit on him and grabbed the stick and struck him on the head with it. When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified.
Be great-full for your salvation, somebody had to die.
There are things and times where you need the help of others to move forward and there are those that only you have to to do.
John 5:7 “I can’t, sir,” the sick man said, “for I have no one to put me into the pool when the water bubbles up. Someone else always gets there ahead of me.”
Expectations can be costly.
When you have had an encounter with God, people can talk and say whatever they want but you’ll never doubt God.
John 4:42 Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not just because of what you told us, but because we have heard him ourselves. Now we know that he is indeed the Savior of the world.”
Christians knows the scriptures, they have heard a lot of preaching, what is missing is an experience with God. The Word must become alive in them and bring transformation.
