Satan is a Vanquished Foe - Thursday's Dose - 19th October 2017

Pin It

“God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” - (1 John 5:11).

Thoughts for Today

A traveler in New Mexico saw a Native American with his head to the ground as if he was listening. The traveler heard him muttering, "Wagon, one driver, two passengers, and two horses".

The traveler was absolutely amazed and said to the Native American, "You mean to tell me that you can tell all of this by listening to the ground?"

"No", was the reply. They just ran over me a few minutes ago.

There are many believers who have been run over by Satan and do not know how to get up and fight back.

There was a camel driver who was taking a caravan across the desert for a few day's journey. One morning the driver said to his companions, "We had intruders last night." They looked at him in amazement and asked how he could tell, when they had neither heard nor seen anyone. He pointed to the tracks in the sand the intruder left behind.

If anyone does not believe in Satan, let him open his eyes to the tracks he leaves—broken homes and devastated families. As a believer in Jesus Christ, you are given authority over Satan. He is a defeated foe.

However, Jesus does not prevent him from attacking believers. In John 12, Jesus reminds His disciples that Satan is a vanquished foe. Jesus said, "Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out"(John 12:31).

After Jesus' resurrection, Satan's sentence was passed down. Now it is a matter of waiting for God's timing to carry out the sentence. When Jesus returns, He will execute His judgment against Satan.

While there is no mistaking Satan's future, your eternal future can be decided by committing your life to the ultimate Victor, the only One who offers eternal life—Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Please help me to see the plans and attacks of the enemy clearly—and to take the authority I have been given in Christ over satan. Thank you that he is a vanquished foe. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen." 

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Bending The Rules - Wednesday's Dose - 18th October 2017

Pin It

Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. - Psalms 78:1.

Remember being young and having all those rules that your parents gave you to go by? Nobody likes rules, but we knew they were there for our benefit. Now, I was afraid not to obey my parents rules. I guess they instilled in me the FEAR of not obeying and the consequences I would face, if I didn't. So, I lived my younger life - and today, as a matter of fact - not wanting to do something that my parents would disapprove of, or hear that I had done behind their backs.

Not all children or people, in general, will follow rules. I know some that couldn't wait to get out from under their Mom and Dad's eyes in order to do what they wanted. It never mattered to them, that, if they were caught, it would reflect on their Mom and Dad. Lots of them never gave the respect to their Mom and Dad that they deserved, anyway. So, what did breaking their rules matter?

Respect today seems to be the number one thing with which the younger generation has a problem. A young guy told me today that you had to 'gain his respect' ..... not even parents just deserved it. I tried to explain that, in our culture, it was thought that you always respected the people older than you, and especially your Mom and Dad. And, I think about the police. Not all police are respectable, but that doesn't mean we disrespect them, for they are the law, and we are to obey the law of the land. Therefore, you respect the job that they do. You may not like the person, but you respect them and the job they do, just the same.

I believe the people that will bend the rules in one thing, will begin to bend the rules in other things. If you let the enemy have a small place to enter into your life, then he will eventually get a foothold. After that, he is in the door and it is hard to get rid of him.

Rules are for a reason. God made rules. He gave us the commandments to live by. And, if we break those rules, then, we have sinned against God. It's a fine line that we walk, as a Christian. Bending rules is not in that equation. There is a narrow path that we walk, by grace and His righteousness into the Promised Land of tomorrow. And, if we bend rules, then we are not living the life that God intended.

Prayer : Our Heavenly Father, 

Your Word is Truth. Help us to trust what your Word says. Teach us to ask the Holy Spirit for enlightenment in any area that we don't understand. Keep us from coming up with our own thoughts on a subject and not adhering to the commandments that you have given us. Keep us from all unrighteousness. We give you praise. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, 

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.

Message that Changed the World - Sunday's Dose - 15th October 2017

Pin It

“The Lord will judge His people and have compassion on His servants, when He sees that their power is gone, and there is no one remaining, bond or free. He will say: ‘Where are their gods, the rock in which they sought refuge?’” Deuteronomy 32:36-37.

Thoughts for Today

It was a message that changed the world. The sermon, called “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” was delivered by Jonathan Edwards on this day in 1741.

We can imagine how many in that congregation had been satisfied with their lives and content with sinful behavior. But Edwards reminded them that God hated sin and could “cast wicked men into hell at any moment.”

Many deserved judgment, Edwards explained, but they were being spared only because “God’s appointed time is not come.” He went on to describe what happened to the Israelites when they forgot the “wonderful works” God had done for them.

Edwards warned, “How dreadful is the state of those that are daily and hourly in the danger of this great wrath and infinite misery! But this is the dismal case of every soul in this congregation that has not been born again.” He concluded by saying, “Let everyone that is out of Christ, now awake and fly from the wrath to come.”

Many responded. They wanted to be right with God. This spark helped ignite “The Great Awakening,” as thousands throughout America and the world committed their lives to Christ.

Today, what the Bible calls “sin” often is considered acceptable by society. By the millions, people don’t realize that they will give an account to God of their thoughts, words, and deeds. They don’t realize the impact of sin on their lives or their community.

Ask God to search your heart and mind. Confess your sins. Make sure that you are clean in His sight. Pray for revival—for a Great Awakening in our time.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, 

Please search my heart. Show me if there is any sin in my life or if there is anything that needs to be rooted out. Help me to be pure in Your sight. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

The Free Gift of God's Love - Saturday's Dose - 14th October 2017

Pin It

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” - (Psalm 46:1).

Thoughts for Today

God's redemptive love for us is beyond anything this world offers us. There is nothing we can do to earn it. It is a free gift God has chosen to give us. It is, however, our responsibility to accept His gift by faith. Paul admonishes us to, “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses" (1 Timothy 6:12).

E. Stanley Jones writes:
I am inwardly fashioned for faith and not for fear. Fear is not my native land. Faith is. I am so made that worry and anxiety are like sand in the machinery of life and faith is the oil. I live better by faith and confidence than by fear, doubt, and anxiety.

We have been redeemed from eternal death through Jesus Christ. We no longer have an occasion to fear. Our fate has been sealed, and we have every reason to have hope for the future. Many people, however, do not realize the power of God's redemption. They cower in fear and worry about tomorrow.

Each one of us can think back to a time when we felt fearful and wanted to retreat. God, however, calls us to move forward in victory.

Fear is one of Satan's favorite weapons against the believer.
Fear blocks God's love.
Fear stifles creativity.
Fear destroys our dreams.
Fear prevents us from telling others about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Paul reminds us that we are more than conquerors through Christ who loves us and gave Himself for us (Romans 8:37). The redemptive love of God is ours to enjoy. When we walk by faith, we refuse to allow fear to rob us of God's blessings.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Thank you for your love. Thank you that faith in you always conquers fear. Thank you for the victories in my life. I am blessed to be more than a conqueror. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

Cross of Christ - Friday's Dose - 13th October 2017

Pin It

“Having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross” - (Colossians 2:14).

Thoughts for Today

Whenever we receive Communion, we must do so humbly and broken before God. We need to be grateful and thankful for our salvation. This Cross that fulfilled Passover and began Communion has power in our daily lives.

When we live under the Cross of Christ, we can say to whatever guilt or shame is plaguing us: Jesus nailed it all to the Cross. When Satan accuses us and reminds us of past sins, we can say: Jesus nailed it all to the Cross.

When we are tempted to think of ourselves as failures, we can remind ourselves that Jesus nailed it all to the Cross.

Only in the Cross of Christ will we receive power when we are powerless. We will find strength when we are weak. We will experience hope when our situation is hopeless. Only in the Cross of Christ is there peace for our troubled hearts.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 

Thank You that my sins are nailed to the Cross. I pray for the power, strength, and peace I need today.Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
