Sunday's Dose - 19th April 2015

Forgive, and you will be Forgiven

Today's Scripture

“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing” - (Luke 23:34).

Thoughts for Today

Perhaps you feel as though another person has treated you unfairly. Maybe your best friend or a loved one has betrayed you, and now your sorrow is turning into anger and bitterness.

You know forgiveness is something God has commanded you to do, but you can’t let go of the hurt you feel inside. You feel as though you now have one goal and that is to find a way to make the person who has harmed you pay for his or her actions.

Unforgiveness can leave us drowning in a sea of frustration, rage, and resentment. If left unchecked, it also can cause physical problems. Without repentance, it can tempt us to question God’s forgiveness. When we add up all the problems that accompany unforgiveness, we quickly see why Jesus was so firm in His command to forgive.

Clinical studies show the number one cause of depression is anger, which often results from a lack of forgiveness and an inability to let go of feelings of resentment. What we fail to realize is that it takes less energy to forgive and to forget than it does to maintain our anger and unforgiveness. Jesus told his disciples, “Forgive, and you will be forgiven” (Luke 6:37). Peter wanted to get technical by asking how many times he should forgive someone who has harmed him, but Jesus saw through his legalistic plot. “Seventy times seven,” was the Lord’s answer; in other words, an indefinite number.

God does not keep a running record of our sin. Instead, He forgives when we pray and seek His righteousness. Never lose sight of the fact that our eternal forgiveness cost Him His very life. Therefore, it is not too much for God to request that we forgive as He has forgiven us.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, teach me how to forgive others the way You have forgiven me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.". 

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

Forgive and Live Victoriously - Saturday's Dose - 18th April 2015

Saturday's Dose - 18th April 2015

Forgive and Live Victoriously

Today's Scripture

“For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you” - (Matthew 6:14).

Thoughts for Today

The first of the seven statements Jesus spoke from the cross is crucial to God’s eternal plan of salvation. Most of the people present for the crucifixion probably expected Jesus to curse His executioners, but He didn’t. Instead, He forgave them!

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). In Christ’s day, forgiveness was not viewed as a mark of strength. Even today, many people refuse to forgive others, thinking that to do so would mean they have become weak.

What we fail to realize about unforgiveness is that it has a remarkable ability to hold us captive and bound to the one whom we refuse to forgive. While the Jews had laws concerning forgiveness, the greater emphasis was placed on the actual act and not on the motive of one’s heart.

Forgiveness done God’s way, on the other hand, frees us to live victoriously; the way Christ lived. It gives us an opportunity to be like Him to others; forgiving.

We also need to remember that God knows the motives of our hearts. Quick prayers lifted to Him in an effort to avoid feelings of guilt or the consequences of sin are easily discerned. We can’t mislead an all-knowing God.

If you are struggling with feelings of anger toward another, tell God. He knows what you are facing, and He will show you how to tackle your greatest regrets and sorrows. Let Him be the One who deals with your offender.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, I don’t want to be held captive any longer by resentment or bitterness. Please help me to forgive (the person’s name) and ask that You would free me from the bondage of unforgiveness. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

Our Heavenly Father - Friday's Dose - 17th April 2015

Friday's Dose - 17th April 2015

Our Heavenly Father

Today's Scripture

“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty” - (2 Corinthians 6:18).

Thoughts for Today

Many of us have memories of our fathers. Some memories may be good, but others may be sad or painful. Whatever our feelings are toward our earthly fathers, there is no comparison to our heavenly Father. He is greater than any earthly father could possibly be. He loves us with an unconditional love and never ceases to demonstrate His mercy and grace toward us. He spends time with us and has promised never to leave us.

That is why Jesus taught His disciples to pray by saying, “Our Father.” The phrase “Our Father” reduces all of the complications of life to a very simple relationship. Through faith in the shed blood of Christ, we have been redeemed from sin and have been adopted into God’s family. As a child of God, have you exercised your right to say “Our Father”?

When we come to our heavenly Father in prayer, He removes our fear. He gives us hope and confidence. He banishes our uncertainty. The Apostle Paul said, “You did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father’” - (Romans 8:15).

Your heavenly Father is interested in every area of your life. In Him you have protection, safety, security, serenity, peace, and salvation. Friends may disappoint you and family may let you down, but your heavenly Father will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). He is eager to hear your prayers to Him.

Therefore, call upon Him. Place your trust in Him. Share your hopes, problems, dreams, and concerns with the One who knows you better than you know yourself. As your Father, He will give you joy for today and hope for tomorrow.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, Thank you for being my Father. I am blessed to be loved by You. Thank you for your salvation, peace and protection. I pray I will bless you as your child. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.". 

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.

Each Season Has A Purpose - Thursday's Dose - 16th April 2015

Thursday's Dose - 16th April 2015

Each Season Has A Purpose

Today's Scripture

“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to give you hope and a future’” - (Jeremiah 29:11).

Thoughts for Today

At times, life will seem uncertain. Things we once held as familiar will change. This is when it helps to remember God never changes. Throughout our trials and struggles, He remains the same; faithful and sure.

You may be going through a difficult time. No one seeks out adversity. However, when it comes, you can find hope by taking time to see your circumstances as opportunities for God’s glory to be displayed.

Self-sufficiency and pride are revealed when we are at our weakest point. God wants us to learn to depend on Him alone. Hard times provide the right opportunity for us to learn God-dependence instead of self-reliance.

When it comes to relationships, this is especially true. A temporary setback in a close relationship can become an open door for a fresh commitment and blessing.

Remember, each season has a purpose. In times of stress and pressure, one of the most common mistakes is to make permanent decisions based on temporary circumstances.

God, however, wants us to be willing to wait for His best. If you have been praying for that “right” person to come into your life, be willing to trust Him to bring to pass all His promises in His good timing. The answers to your prayers may not come in the way you imagine.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, Thank you, Lord, for never wavering in Your goodness toward me. I thank You for working to bring things about for my good and Your glory. I place my trust in You today. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.". 

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Pray For Each Other - Wednesday's Dose - 15th April 2015

Wednesday's Dose - 15th April 2015

Pray For Each Other

Today's Scripture

“As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning” - (Exodus 17:11).

Thoughts for Today

Moses sent Joshua to fight against the Amalekites. Then he, along with Aaron and Hur, went to stand on top of a hill overlooking the battlefield. As long as Moses prayed with his hands held up, the Israelites would gain ground and win. However, whenever he lowered his hands, they began to lose.

Have you ever stood with your hands lifted up for any extended time? It is tiring. Your arms become heavy and your hands begin to feel tingly. Imagine Moses standing with his hands held high and then lowering them as he struggled under their weight. He couldn't do it. He needed help, so Aaron and Hur placed a stone for Moses to sit on. Then they held up his hands—holding them steady until the sun set and God granted the nation of Israel victory.

How many times have you tried to fight a battle by yourself? You think you are strong. You pray and seek God, but the battle becomes fierce and you grow weary. Before you lose hope and give up, remember you are not alone. God is with you.

Galatians 6:2 commands: "Carry each other's burdens." James tells us to pray for each other (see James 5:16). We need to support others in prayer and with words of encouragement. Sometimes, just being near a friend speaks volumes of concern and care. Also, there is power in agreement. Jesus said, "I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven" (Matthew 18:19).

There can be no victory without prayer. Whatever you are dealing with in your life, remember you don't have to fight on your own. Seek the Lord and ask others to pray with you.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, please help me to identify the people you have put into my life to pray for and with. Forgive me for the times when I have tried to live this life of faith outside of community. Thank you for faithful brothers and sisters in Christ. May I also be one. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
