He is our Peace. Joy, and Fulfillment

Today's Scripture

“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” - (Psalm 42:2).

Thoughts for Today

No matter how frustrated or anxious we become, we do not have to lose hope. Our hope should never be in ourselves or in our abilities, nor should it be in other people. At some point, others will let us down. Rather, our hope should be in the living Christ, who has kept every one of His promises to us!

We can have hope because Christ Jesus is our Savior. He is our joy. He is our peace. He is our fulfillment. If we try to get our joy from our feelings or from our possessions, then we will be constantly disappointed. However, if we find our joy in the Lord and in trusting in His Word, then we will experience hope—regardless of our circumstances.

Have you ever experienced the joy of the Lord? There comes a time when we must stop dwelling on our despair. We must stop giving in to the moaning and groaning that keeps us from experiencing the hope and the joy that God freely gives. He does not cast us away.

As His children, we have a hope in Christ who never fails. We can know a life filled with contentment, peace, joy, praise, and love when we commit our way to God. Moreover, as long as we are consumed with fear, envy, pride, selfish ambition, and greed, we cannot be filled with God’s Spirit. The choice is ours—contentment in Christ or discontentment in ourselves.

Christ is waiting with open arms. Begin by thirsting for Him. Come before Him in humility. Recognize that He has the answers for your feelings of fear and despair. Don’t give up. God is always with you.

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for Your love. In your presence is fullness of joy. My soul rejoices in You. I choose contentment in Christ and I thank You for Your salvation. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

Give God Control of Your Life - Thursday's Dose - 25th June 2015

Thursday's Dose - 25th June 2015

Give God Control of Your Life

Today's Scripture

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” - (John 14:6).

Thoughts for Today

Whom we trust with our lives says volumes about our faith. When a difficult situation arises, do we turn to others for help? Do we attempt to resolve the situation alone? Or do we ask God to give us wisdom and guidance?

The moment we give our lives to the Lord, we must sever all ties that we have with our clever minds. No matter how intelligent we are, there will be times when only God’s wisdom can lead us to the perfect solution. We may not recognize it, especially if we feel trapped by our circumstances, but no problem we ever have is too great for God.

Our challenge as believers is taking this truth to heart. Sometimes, we give our hearts to God only to take them back when surrender to Him becomes inconvenient.

But when you commit your life into God’s hands, you must resolve to leave it there. Just as no money market account matures with excessive withdrawals, you will struggle to grow when you continually seize control of your life after depositing it into His hands.

It is never easy to relinquish total control. We feel helpless as we sit by and watch. Yet God wants us to surrender so He can do His greatest work in us, the work of completely transforming our hearts and minds as He molds us into the image of Christ. While we may have an idea of what God wants to do with our lives, we do not know the fullness of what He desires to do; therefore, we must allow Him to have total control.

As you give God control of your life, He will shape you into the person He intends for you to be. Remember: There is no one you can trust more than the Son of God.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, I want You to be in control of my life today, leading me through Your Holy Spirit. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

The Victory Has Already Been Won - Wednesday's Dose - 24th June 2015

Wednesday's Dose - 24th June 2015

The Victory Has Already Been Won

Today's Scripture

“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” -(Psalm 20:7).

Thoughts for Today

While witnessing one team take a lopsided lead in a sporting event, we sometimes keep watching because of the slight chance that the losing team could mount a comeback. More often than not, that team fails, but at least there is hope.

When Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave, He secured the victory for us. Jesus’ triumph over death also gave us the victory over death’s grip, both here on earth and in eternity. No longer do we have to be held in bondage to sin on earth. No longer do we have to pay the price of death for our sins on earth either.

Jesus’ sacrifice covered it all.

Life can be difficult. It can even feel gloomy and full of despair. Yet, just as Jesus’ sacrifice gives us new life, His last words before His death fill us with hope: “It is finished.”

Like watching a movie for the second time where all the suspense is removed, so is living our lives here on earth if we are walking with the hope and assurance of salvation in Christ. We know the ending. God is victorious. Satan, sin, and death are defeated.

Jesus’ death and resurrection give us eternal life, and His final words on the cross give us encouragement, spurring us to press on because God is the victor and we are His people.

While the enemy may make a last-ditch effort to discourage you and to divert the plans God has for your life, he will not win.

God loves you and when you place your faith and hope in Him, He will deliver you from all the wiles of the enemy. The victory has already been won!

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, reveal to me how I can walk more in the victory of Christ each day. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.

He is Preparing Us - Tuesday's Dose - 23rd June 2015

Tuesday's Dose - 23rd June 2015

He is Preparing Us

Today's Scripture

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” - (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Thoughts for Today

The faster our world moves, the less patience we have. When we want something, we want it now. When presented with two equal choices, we make our selection based on availability.

Can we get it today?

Waiting on God can seem like an eternity. We have His promises, yet we wonder if He remembers us. We pace back and forth and mutter about how God never moves quickly. We wonder what is taking Him so long, and we wonder if He will keep His Word.

Just as a loving earthly father would not hand over car keys to a child who is unprepared to drive an automobile, neither would God give us something before we are truly ready. The time in which we wait upon Him often prepares us for the work He wants to do through us. He is preparing us to handle greater responsibilities.

Unfortunately, we struggle to realize this and often forget about the way He has operated in our lives in the past. God is not slow as much as He is patient. He is waiting for us to arrive at just the right place to receive His blessings. Our patience in waiting upon Him demonstrates our love and trust that He knows exactly what He is doing.

As our relationship with God grows deeper, we realize our maturity is not based on how many verses we have memorized or how many things we are doing for the church. Much of maturing in our relationship with God means we have come to a better understanding of His love for us and we trust Him fully; no matter how long it takes for Him to fulfill His promises.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, give me the patience I need to wait upon Your perfect timing for my life. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.

Suffering and Death - Monday's Dose - 22nd June 2015

Monday's Dose - 22nd June 2015

Suffering and Death

Today's Scripture

“From that time Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day.” Matthew 16:21 NASB.

Thoughts for Today

Jesus knew what was ahead. He was destined to go to Jerusalem, where suffering and death awaited Him. He wanted the disciples to know this too.

To Peter this made no sense, and he rebuked Jesus for even thinking these thoughts. But Jesus warned Peter that he actually was being a stumbling block, for all that awaited Him in Jerusalem was part of God’s plan.

Jesus’ disciples were learning more about what it meant to be true disciples. It did not just mean listening to or following Jesus. They were learning that real discipleship meant complete surrender and obedience, regardless of the difficulty or consequences.

In His response, Jesus emphasized three principles: We must deny ourselves and lay everything else aside. We must take up our cross and sacrifice everything to serve Him. And we must follow Him, wherever He leads.

In our lives, we are presented with the same choices. All who want to serve and follow Jesus must pass these tests. We, too, must seek first His Kingdom and deny ourselves. We, too, must take up our cross and be willing to die to self, every day. We, too, must leave all to follow Him.

We need to realize that God is watching our lives and evaluating the choices we make. We are reminded to set our priorities and think ahead, “for the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds” (v. 27).

Today, think about what following Jesus means for you. If you are His disciple, you must be willing to give up all, yield your rights, and be ready and willing to follow Him and do what He calls you to do.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, I surrender my life to You. I dedicate my time, talent, and treasure to You. Use me for Your Kingdom and glory. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
