Division

It Has To Stop

There seems to be something going on everywhere we turn. The division that has become an expected normal. The violence that appears to have gasoline being pored on it, always keeping it going. The lies that are getting told and accepted as truth. It feels like we are in a flood with our heads under the water not being able to breathe. Never forget God is there to help you walk through everything that is going on. No matter if it is around the world or if it is your personal life He has your back.

What God Says

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. Romans 16:17 ESV

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, I feel like I am surrounded by so much uneasiness, there seems to be turmoil every place I turn. Lord I need You. As I open this bible show me the direction and directive that You intend me to walk, Lord surround me with Your fiery chariots that Elisha had around him in 2 Kings 6:17 and have them remove the attacks, whispers, and distractions. In Jesus Name Amen

Validation

Call on Him praying and worshiping always. When you pray and worship you are talking to and praising God Himself. You know how much you appreciate it when those who you love talk to you and validate that you exist. Thinking about it in this perspective it gives a little insight into the relationship that is being built when doing both of these. Get to know Him, you will not regret it!

God’s Direction

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
John 4:24 ESV

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for being there for me. Thank you for the support and the strength that You have given me. Thank you for getting me through the tough times and being with me during the good times. In Jesus Name Amen

Freedom’s Use

Embrace Freedom

There are times when we get comfortable in the freedom that’s been given to us. Sometimes with out realizing it our focus gets turned to ourselves. We don’t always know what’s best. We forget all that God has done, is doing, and will do. We make decisions that do not take into account what is best in God’s eyes. Instead it is what enhances our agenda. Embrace the freedom that’s been given to you by God. Let go of self. When you control everything it can become overpowering. When you turn it over to God the peace is awesome. Let God guide every foot step so that the path ahead is sure and true never having to worry about a cover up.

God’s Direction

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. 1 Peter 2:16 ESV

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, I give all of this to you, Lord, I am on my knees. Give me the direction you want me to go, block my input so that I will only see what You want. Light the way and make it so bright that I can see and not doubt. Lord take the scales off of my eyes so that I will see through unfettered eyes. I am Yours, Lord, use me for what You need to accomplish. In Jesus Name Amen

Strength Training

Rest in the Lord wait for His direction and walk in His strength. Spread your wings and fly leaving the “stuff” that’s weighing you down and never looking back. Resting in the Lord would include focusing on Him. Praising Him and surrounding yourself in His word. Like any other exercise regiment the best way to keep up your strength is through repetitions. Always praise Him, always focus on Him, and always listen to the words He has given us.

Triumph

The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow.

Thomas Paine

Our Personal Trainer

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 ESV

What God Says

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10 ESV

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, Lord take away the “stuff” in me that is a distraction, purifying my mind and allow me to rest in your excellence.

Cleansed

There are so many “things” that are out there that will distract us. They will take our attention and direct it in so many different directions that sometimes it is hard to focus on our daily life. We often will categorize what is most important leaving God on the bottom of the list. When losing our focus on God we lose the best coach/leader/director that we have access to. Always consult Him first in every thing that you do.

Work is hard. Distractions are plentiful. And time is short.

Adam Hochschild

What God Says

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10 ESV

Nothing to Big

When everything around us, you know the “stuff” that keeps on kicking at the door. It always seems to never end and keeps piling up. The pile is getting so large it’s hard to take a breath or relax because of what’s around the next corner. Know that you are not alone. When it seems like you can’t take another step without stepping into another problem. Take the first step and move forward. What’s impossible to you is workable with Him.

Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.

Arthur Conan Doyle

No Road Blocks

We always try to convince ourselves that we’ve done too much, we’re too bad to be saved. Why do I even try? He has reassured us that it is our “stuff” that separates us. He told us nothing on this earth will keep you from His love! Stop accepting anything else! Like I stated the only thing that will keep you from knowing Him is you. He is waiting for you to take the step and open the door.

Nothing

nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39 ESV

Let Go

In God’s Hands

We seem to have a lot of “stuff” that controls our actions. Have we ever asked ourselves if it’s truly what God wants or is it our own ambitions guiding the path we’re traveling. I can tell you that I sometimes convince myself that my personal wants are from God but if I truly take a look I realize I’m doing it out of a motive that had nothing to do with God but everything to do with my own gratification. I know that it is hard to let someone else take the wheel. Through experience I have learned that when I let Him take control of things are always better. Not always smooth or for that matter easy, but always has been the right thing in the end.

Always Trust Him

“Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” Luke 22:42 ESV

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, I give all of this to you Lord I am on my knees. Give me the direction you want me to go, block my input so that I will only see what You want. Light the way and make it so bright that I can see and not doubt.

No Trespassing

No Trespassing

Get rid of it

Before we can ever get rid of the “stuff” that haunts us and we struggle with every day we have to draw the line that cannot be crossed.  Have you ever posted the No Trespassing signs that show the devil he can never cross with the protection of Jesus Christ: Submit yourselves therefore to God: Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 ESV Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 ESV

Fight the Fight

Remember what we have been told: For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 ESVSometimes we think that we can take care of it ourselves not thinking about the fact that we are not in control of everything. Sometimes we think that we can do it, things appear to be going great, but when we look at is it coming from God: And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14 ESV Are you being spiritually satisfied or are you being physically satisfied?

In Charge

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 ESV Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast #love, #justice, and #righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23-24 ESV

Walk the Walk

God wants us to be close to Him, to #love others, love the way He loves, forgive the way He forgives: Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. Ephesians 5:1 ESV  I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call,  one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:1-5 ESV

Enough

When we post this no trespassing sign in front of the devil he cannot pass : And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst.” Zechariah 2:5 ESV Put your hand in the devils face and yell enough you can’t be here I have placed a no trespassing sign that you can’t cross!

Happy New Year 2021

Happy New Year

New Year New Chances

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 ESV

Definition of New: become fresh, being other than the former or old

Synonyms: different, another, separate

This last year, 2020, for a lot of us is one that we are happy, glad and even Joyful to see the year pack it’s bags and leave. Remember that what has happened in the past cannot be changed it does not help to focus on the “oh I should have”, or the “oh I should not have”. God has told us:  “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19

Make a resolution this year to focus on God and not all the junk that always tries to consume us, pray more, read the bible more, enjoy your loved ones more. Don’t worry about things so much God takes care of us : Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26

Love God first and love those who you are around they are the ones that are there for you that He has placed in your life to love, to help and for support: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29 ESV Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. Colossians 4:6 ESV Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV The words of a wise man’s mouth win him favor, but the lips of a fool consume him. Ecclesiastes 10:12 ESV Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV

Surely the tongue, which is the means by which we hold intercourse with each other, should be a means by which we edify one another.   Sermon Bible

Laws

Political building

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, be with our leaders, protect them, give them wisdom; help them to look over the welfare of all of their people. Lord give them the wisdom of Solomon (1 Kings 4:29), the protection of your mighty armies (2 Kings 6:17), and give them the love that You have for all of their people. Please help the citizens see that anarchy is not the way to go without law and direction there is confusion. Lord soften peoples hearts so they can see, understand, and follow your direction. In Jesus Name Amen

Follow the Law

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. Romans 13:1-7 ESV

The lesson here taught it becomes all Christians to learn and practice, that the godly in the land will always be found the quiet and the peaceable in the land, whatever others are. Matthew Henrys Concise Commentary

Pray for Your Leaders

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 ESV But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. Jerimiah 29:7 ESV

Daily Bread

Breaking bread

Daily Bread Psalm 119:105

Daily Verse

If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.

Love doesn’t strut,

Doesn’t have a swelled head,

Doesn’t force itself on others,

Isn’t always “me first,”

Doesn’t fly off the handle,

Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,

Doesn’t revel when others grovel,

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end.

Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled. 1 Corinthians 13:4-10 MSG

All for Love

Love is the best of all, because it is eternal. All else will perish. Our highest attainments will be as the babblings and playthings of childhood. But when we are in touch with the reality of things, love will be all in all. F.B. Meyer

What Way do I Go

order and chaos

Dear Heavenly Father, I feel like everywhere I turn there is nothing for me. I feel like I am locked in an inescapable cage that no matter which way I turn I run into another wall. Lord I am on my knees crying out to You, Lord why are You doing this? I need to get out of this please HELP! In Jesus Name Amen

What’s Going on

Don’t be confused: For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:33 ESV Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 ESV Let my cry come before you, O Lord; give me understanding according to your word! Psalm 119:169 ESV I cannot say this enough; God has got your back; pray the prayer that Elisha prayed: Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6: 17 Pray to have your eyes opened so that you may see Gods plan for you, when this plan becomes apparent you will be able to see the “chariots of fire” that He has given you to fight with. Yours will be different than others that is why we are told that we are one part of the whole body: For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Romans 12:3-5 ESV Become the “one part” that He has intended you to be. Love each other without fear, help where you can help and travel the path with joy that you are on.

He's with you

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for being with me when ever I need You. You have supported me and held me up through the worst times of my life. Thank you; I always know that I have You to lean on when everything seems to be going wrong. Even when I do not understand I know that you have it under control. In Jesus Name Amen

Paths Traveled

In my life for some reason I seem to go to God last, I know better because He has always has taken care of me, He has always comforted me and when I look back it has always been something that has taught me what I needed (I don’t think I am the only one). If I would consult the one and only, the creator of the world, it would lesson some of the heartache we go through unnecessarily. I say unnecessarily because when we let Him be the guide for every path we travel we find out over and over again that He’s got it under control.

He’s Got This

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. Isaiah 43:2 ESV But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 ESV Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 ESV

Nothing is Impossible

nothing impossible

dry bones

Dear Heavenly Father, I don’t mean to sound doubtful or disrespectful, but Lord I have prayed for my friends and family for so many years. Lord; thank you for giving me this encouragement this morning, what an awesome message to hear. Lord I pray that You pour Your Spirit out on them open their lungs so they can breathe You in. Open their eyes remove the scales so that they can see, Lord guide every step that they take. I know nothing is impossible with You and it all happens in Your time. I admit that I am impatient sometimes please help me to see every situation the way You see it so that my knowledge of these issues only grow more and more every day. In Jesus Name Amen.

The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.” So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet a vast army. Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37 1:14 ESV

Death

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for all that You have done for me. Your protection, guidance, and forgiveness are immeasurable. You guide me in every decision, step, and breathe I take. You have even made sure that I am taken care of when I die. In Jesus Name Amen

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 ESV

Marriage

marriage

A Serious Proposition

marriage

He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22 ESV

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24 ESV

Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage. No one abuses his own body, does he? No, he feeds and pampers it. That’s how Christ treats us, the church, since we are part of his body. And this is why a man leaves father and mother and cherishes his wife. No longer two, they become “one flesh.” This is a huge mystery, and I don’t pretend to understand it all. What is clearest to me is the way Christ treats the church. And this provides a good picture of how each husband is to treat his wife, loving himself in loving her, and how each wife is to honor her husband. Ephesians 5:25-33 (MSG)

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (ESV)
