Matthew 21:22

Matthew 21:22

You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.  -(Matthew 21:22 NKJV)

Hang on to the Rope of God’s Hope

Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father. (1 Thessalonians 1:3 NKJV)

There are three things in this verse that stand out to me, and I know that you will love them just as I do:

Faith can work, love can labor, and hope can give you patience. If we feel we have faith, yet do nothing, hang onto the rope of God’s hopewe don’t really have faith. If we say we have love, yet do nothing, we don’t really have love. If we say we have hope, then we will be patient until we see the manifestation of what God has for us.

HOPE in the Hebrew means “rope.” I believe God lets His rope down from heaven so we can tie a knot in it and hold onto it until we see the manifestation of our faith and our love.

Rahab had hope in God’s Word. She even put a red rope in her window. Her wall stood when other walls fell. When other people’s walls fall, their lives fall down too. If you hang onto the rope of God’s hope, your wall will stand.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We know that it is through faith and patience that we inherit Your promises. We make a decision to hold on to faith and to have patience until we see the fulfillment of Your promises. 

In Jesus’s Name,

Amen

Ephesians 1:3

Ephesians 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.  -(Ephesians 1:3)

What Cannot be Inherited

One thing that cannot be passed down from one generation to the next is the most important thing of all—a personal What Cannot be Inheritedrelationship with Jesus Christ. God doesn’t have any grandchildren.  Every person is required to accept Jesus as Savior, as an act of his or her own will and faith.  Every person must choose to follow Jesus as Lord, again as an act of his or her own will and faith.

Certainly, all Christian parents want to see their children choose Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Even more than we desire this, God desires this. He wants our children and grandchildren to be in intimate relationship with Him and to serve Him all the days of their lives.

The enemy of our souls, however (Jesus called him the thief and robber, the father of all lies, and the devil), desires to stop God’s truth from operating beyond our own lives and generation.

Thankfully, our God is victorious in all things!

Psalm 127:1 Unless the Lord…

Psalm 127:1

One Nation Under God

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord  (Psalm 33:12a NKJV)

Did you know that the United States began its life as a Christian nation?  One Nation Under GodOur forefathers fled to this country so that they could worship God in the manner they wished.  Our constitution, our Declaration of Independence, and our Bill of Rights all mention God.  We were birthed as a nation of God, and we are blessed for it.

God has used America to bless the world.  Our confidence is in God—it is even printed on our money!  There are certainly tremendous needs in our nation today, but there are also tremendous Christians who are taking God’s Word to intercede for this country.  We are the salt that preserves this nation—let’s not lose our saltiness.  We are the light that overcomes the darkness of this nation—let’s not hide our lights under a bushel.

Let’s stand boldly in God, speak against evil, pray, and believe God for the miraculous outpouring of His Spirit upon all flesh in the United States.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You today that our nation is blessed because of the Christians who are praying and believing You.  Thank You for doing great and mighty things in our midst and raising up laborers and intercessors.

In Jesus’s Name,

Amen.

Philippians 4:19

 

 

And my God will supply every need of yours according of His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. -(Philippians 4:19 NKJV)

A Legacy of Blessing

God never blesses sin, but He does forgive and then bless those who seek His forgiveness and cling to Him. He gives the sinner a new identity—a new name, new character, new future. If God could change Jacob (see Genesis 32), He certainly can change you, me, and our children into His likeness.

God’s desire is to bless you, to bless your children, and to create a line of generations who know His blessing and are determined to pass it on.

This legacy of blessing is an integral part of the covenant God made with Abraham and his descendants (see Genesis 12).

What about you?

Consider your family tree.

Is there a point where change was made?

Is there something you see that needs changing?

Might this change begin with you?
