Matthew 6:25

 

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? ~(Matthew 6:25 NKJV)

Matthew 6:252019-04-08T14:11:38-06:00

God’s Word Lives On

Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever… (1 Peter 1:23 NKJV)

Can you imagine what it will be like to live eternally?  God’s Word gives us eternal life because it IS eternal.  His Word live and abides forever.  Whenever we stand on His Word; trust in His Word; act, think, speak, and meditate upon His Word, we have latched hold of eternity.  Our physical bodies may die, but God’s Word in incorruptible, it will continue to work and bring forth fruit.

I heard a wonderful testimony from a man whose grandfather spent five minutes a day praying over each grandchild.  There were nine grandchildren, so he prayed 45 minutes each day.  Today all of those grandchildren are in full-time ministry.  Why? Because God’s Word lives on, even though our physical bodies do not.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Help us to put our faith in Your Word.  Help us not to give up, but to know that when we take hold of the Word, we take hold of eternity.  The Word will never let us down because You uphold all things by the Word of Your power.  Thank You today that Your promises endure forever. 

Amen

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. ~Hebrews 13:8 NKJV

Hebrews 13:82019-04-02T11:14:33-06:00

All Nations, Every Tongue

Shout with joy to God, all the earth!All Nations, Every Tongue
Sing the glory of his name;
Make his praise glorious!…

All the earth bows down to you:
They sing praise to you,
They sing praise to your name.
(Psalm 66:1-2, 4 NIV)

Therefore God exalted him [Jesus] to the highest
place and gave him the name that is above every
name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should
bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
(Philippians 2:9-11 NIV)

One day—yes, one day—God’s glorious plan will be revealed in a way undeniable. And on that day, not only will all of creation and all people know that Jesus is Lord, but that knowledge will so overwhelm humanity that they will fall to their knees and confess the truth that Jesus is the Messiah.

What a great and glorious day that will be

Proverbs 24:3-4

Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. -(Proverbs 24:3-4 NKJV)

Establish Your Thoughts

Commit your works to the Lord,
And your thoughts will be established. –(Proverbs 16:3 NKJV)Establish Your Thoughts

Do you every have problems with your thought life? The devil can put all kinds of junk and trash into our minds. I hate that. Sometimes I think it happens because we have seen a movie that wasn’t good or because we have seen something questionable on television. Somehow the enemy has done a number on us.

But I have found a way to establish my thoughts: I need to commit all of my works until the Lord. Many times, I have awakened in the night and started to worry. Then I’d catch myself and say, “Lord, I commit my works unto You.” Soon my thoughts come back in line, and I can go back to sleep.

The devil would like to harass us through our thought life. But if we will commit our works unto the Lord, our thought life will come in line. I know that you want your works and thoughts established in Him.

Dear Heavenly Father,

In the name of Jesus, we commit our works into your Hand. We thank You that our thoughts are established and our minds are renewed. We have the mind of Christ. Jesus was made unto us wisdom for this day, and we praise and glorify You for it.

Amen

Free to Choose

Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today. But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the Lord your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before (Deuteronomy 11:26-28 NLT).

You can choose to spend time with Jesus and how closely you will listen to and obey what he tells you. You can choose what you will allow into your mind and heart. You can choose what you believe. You have free will to make countless choices and decisions every day.

Because of this amazing gift—the God-given freedom to choose—we have the privilege to choose lives of blessing for ourselves and our families. Even if you don’t have the benefits of growing up in a godly family, even if you come from a long line of hard-core sinners, you can choose a life that will bring blessing upon you, your children, and your grandchildren.
