Pray for our nation! Pray for our Supreme Court as they discuss the definition of marriage! Pray they agree with God's Holy Word!
Genesis 1:26-28, 2:18-25
God does not make mistakes, He created man and woman to enter into a marriage union.
Some will say let this go... I say no!
I am so glad that some never gave up on me, they did not hate me enough to let me continue in my sin and die in a drug lifestyle!
No, some loved me enough to lead me to Jesus and teach me I do not have to live this way that is contrary to God's word!
Jesus said, "he who the Son sets free is free indeed!"
Jesus can set anyone free from any life controlling sin! Amen
If you need prayer on this issue please reply/comment and I will pray for you!
Jesus said, "Let not your heart be troubled..." John 14:1
Let's be honest... Some times our hearts get troubled. One of the things I love about Jesus is He is honest enough to tell us things. Notice in the verse He says, "let not," which infers to us that we can! Jesus was not trying to teach us how to be super spiritual or fake... He was giving us direction!
Let's finish the verse, "you believe in God, believe also in me."
Listen, the best way to get out of troubled waters is to believe in and put your affections & trust in Jesus! He will calm the troubled waters,, he will smooth the waters, He will keep you afloat, He will deliver you. He will carry you!
He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
Blessing to you as you, "let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me!"
Read John 14:1-6
God's word says, "I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvelous are you works..." Psalm 139:14
The idea of a person being born female but is trapped in a male body (vice versa) is a slap in the face to God! And is not true!
Each person God creates is wonderful and marvelous in His sight! God did not create mistakes! Since the beginning of the world in which we dwell a person was created Male or Female according to Genesis 1:27!
In our day, this is unfortunately a growing issue... Even if it is a few, that is a few too many!
Let us be praying for those who struggle with this lie that is being fed to them, let us ask God to free people from this bondage!!!!
Pray for parents to train their children according to God's truth and to see if this lie is creeping in to their homes - to protect their children from believing this lie!
Lord deliver those who are believing this lie. Amen
Matthew 4:1 "then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil."
Wow, the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil!??
Now that is interesting! Of course we do know Jesus did not fall into the temptation, he battled the devil and remained sinless and victorious!
So why the wilderness, why temptation? Why did the Spirit of God lead Him there? Why, why, why?
We all ask these questions, we all want to know WHY things happen!
Maybe we are not to know why, but these things happen so that we may KNOW HIM!
What we do know Is that God was in charge, that Jesus was able to stand in the midst of trial and that He came out of this trial, victorious!
The scripture does not explain WHY but we sure do learn all kinds of things from this time of trial for Christ! We learn...
1. The spirit leads us
2. The scriptures guides & protects us
3. We must live by every word of God!
4. We must not tempt God
5. We must worship & serve God alone!
6. We can come through trials victoriously with God's help
7. The devil will leave
8. The devil may return, always know that!
9. Angels minister to believers! COOL!
10. Jesus can rebuke Satan for us!
That is only a list of 10 things we learn from Matthew 4:11... Please comment and share what other lessons can be learned, even when we don't quite get it?!
Remember, we may not get to know WHY, He just wants us to KNOW HIM!
Matthew 3:15 "...it becomes you and I to fulfill all righteousness"
This is Jesus the Creator of heaven and earth telling John the Baptiser to Baptise Him! Could you imagine baptizing Jedus?
I love what Jesus said, "you and I...."
Jesus told all his disciples the same thing when He left us the great commission! Remember, He said, "lo, I am with you even to the end if the age." We partner up with Him, and He accomplishes Hus will in and through us!
Jedus also told us this same thing before His assension when He left us the Great Promise! The great Promise is the Holy Sprit of God! Jedus left us His Holy Spirit that we would have His power to be effective witnesses!
There, you have no excuse it is not just you it is 'you and Jesus!'
Go change the world, you and Jesus!
(Further reading/ Phil. 2:13, Matthew 28:15-20, Acts 1:1-10)
Job 23:12 "I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food."
My prayer for this new year is that we would all realize our need for food! Food of a different sort... I hope we all realize how desperately we need to feed on the Words of God! Jesus taught us that we could not live on bread alone but on every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God!
Grow in the grace and understanding of who Jesus is by reading the word of God! Hunger and thirst after righteousness and you will be filled! Hide His word in your heart that you may not sin against Him!
TREASURE AND TAKE PLEASURE IN HIS WORD, MORE THAN YOUR NECESSARY FOOD!

"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began." Titus 1:2
God promised us eternal life! This becomes our hope, we can trust that we are soon going to be with The Lord of heaven.
Don't grow weary, don't think he has forgotten, don't think he doesn't understand. He remembers you. He knows you by name!
Enjoy The Lord right now, He is with you!
Who knows today just might be the day he calls us up....
So love Him, serve Him and patiently endure afflictions... He's coming for you,and He can't lie!
We know what He says is true!
Here I am standing in front of HHGREGG, waiting patiently... Going to score some sale items. I confess I enjoy being in the long Line and listening and watching and praying! I enjoy the people as long as they maintain good additives....
As I stand I am reminded of Jesus when He says, "store up your treasures in heaven..."
Oh I cant wait to be in heaven... Oh the treasures and pleasures of being in His presence, stdndung in the midst if ALL SAINTS, basking in JOY UNSPEAKABLE!
Can you imagine it! Amen... Line is moving...
The world was not promised to remain the same. We were not promised absolute stability here on earth. God warned us that the enemy, satan, roams the earth seeking whom he may devour.
Yet, Jesus promised to be with us! He promised to provide! He promised to help! He promised to save!
So as we go through this Election Day, awaiting results, let us remember that He is in control, even when we don't get it!
"We know that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Rom. 8:28
HE knows what is about to happen and HE is allowing, with a purpose!
It is exciting to see what God will do and our commission has not changed, LOVE & GO! Amen!
"I exhort therefore, that, first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men: for kings, and for all that are in authority..."
I Tim 2:1-2
The focus should not be on the elaction itself, it should not be on the candidates... OUR FOCUS SHOULD BE JESUS!
Notice that Paul exhorts us in the verse above to supplicate (asking for, needing), pray, intercede, and give thanks... The focus of the exhortation is a calling for direct communication to God on behalf of all men, kings and authority! So, please exercise your right to vote Biblically... AND KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS, THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR SALVATION! PRAY!
