Depending on God - Saturday's Dose - 24th December 2016

Pin It


"Without Me, you can do nothing." - John 15:5.

Thoughts for Today

These words spoken by Jesus radically changed my life. I had grown up hearing that old saying, "God helps those who help themselves," so I believed that God wanted us to be independent and self-reliant. Then I discovered that, not only is this phrase not in the Bible, but it contradicts the principles of Scripture. Hebrews 11:6 (TLB) says, "You can never please God without faith, without depending on Him." The truth is that God is pleased when we rely on Him and seek His help. Psalm 37:5 (TLB) says, "Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him to help you do it and He will." God wants to be partners with us in all our daily tasks and activities. When we invite God on the scene, an unlimited amount of resources and possibilities are made available to us. It's an "I can't, but God can" kind of lifestyle.

And with God, there is no matter that concerns us which is too small or
insignificant; there is no distinction between sacred and secular. God wants to be involved in every aspect of our lives, and He wants to help us reach our God-given potential. He also wants to ease our burdens and struggles. Psalm 34:5(NLT) says, "Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy." Depending on God brings joy, peace, and satisfaction. But trying to accomplish things on our own makes us weary, frustrated and discouraged. That's exactly why Satan wants us to think we don't need to ask God for help. He knows that the more we depend on God, the more productive, fruitful, and successful we'll be.

The apostle Paul said, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13 NKJV) Paul knew that his strength came from his dependence upon and union with Christ. Ours does, too. Asking God for help doesn't make us weak--it makes us strong. What really makes us weak is trying to do things on our own, in our own strength. Just try to be a parent, spouse or student without God's help, and you will end up drained and defeated. But if you seek the Lord daily and depend on Him, He will sustain you and lead you to victory, no matter what challenges come your way. In 2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT, the Lord told Paul, "My power works best in your weakness." When we acknowledge our weaknesses and ask for God's help, it gives Him the opportunity to show what an awesome difference His involvement can make.

It delights the heart of God when we say, "Lord, without You, I can do nothing. Please help me." Often, I hear myself praying like this many times a day, especially when I'm tackling tough situations and tasks. As a result, I've
always discovered a new-found strength, peace, and confidence that enabled me to persevere and complete the task with joy. It's my prayer that you'll begin depending on God more each day, so that you can join your praises with the psalmist who wrote, "Great is the Lord, who enjoys helping His servant"! (Psalm 60:12 NLT).

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Forgive me for failing to invite You to be a part of my daily endeavors. When I try to do things in my own strength, remind me to ask for Your help. Deliver me from an independent spirit, and enable me to depend on You more and more. Thank You for the peace, joy, and success that will be mine as a result! Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

Jesus Christ is the Light of the World - Friday's Dose - 23rd December 2016

Pin It


There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light - (Revelation 22:5).

Thoughts for Today

Throughout the Bible, we see God leading and comforting His people with the presence of His holy light. In Exodus, the ninth plague upon the Egyptians was one of darkness so great that the people could not see one another. However, the children of Israel had light in their homes (Exodus 10:23).

Christ Jesus, the Light of the world, shines not only in the hearts and minds of those who follow Him, but also in their homes and dwelling places.

Once Israel was released from Egyptian bondage:

By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them ... and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light. ... Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people (Exodus 13:21-22).

However, when God’s people reached the Red Sea:

The angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side (Exodus 14:19-20).

Jesus Christ is the Light of the world. He will light your way when you can no longer see clearly. He protects you and stands between you and the enemy’s weak attempts to bring ruin to your life. No matter how dark your world seems, God’s light cannot be extinguished.

Have you taken time to share this life-changing Truth that no one has to walk in darkness? Make a commitment to tell someone today that Jesus is the Light of the World.

Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You I no longer have to walk in darkness. Please help me share this Truth with others 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.

Springs of Living Water - Wednesday's Dose - 21st December 2016

Pin It


“He will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes” - (Revelation 7:17).

Thoughts for Today

We all understand the importance of water for survival. In fact, next to air, water is the most important substance for life.

The Bible teaches Jesus is God incarnate and He was also human. He experienced the same feelings and temptations that we encounter each day. However, He never succumbed to even one temptation.

In John 4:4-8, we read how the Savior became tired and stopped to rest beside the well of Jacob. While His disciples were buying food in a nearby town, a Samaritan woman arrived at the well to draw water. Jesus, being thirsty, asked her for a drink of the well’s water. Immediately, she protested and reminded him that she was a Samaritan, and He was a Jew.

Jews believed the Samaritans were unclean. Another fact to consider is that this woman was at the well alone at high noon. More than likely, she also was considered unclean by her own people and came to the well at a time when no one else would see her.

We know her story. She had been married many times and was in need of a Savior, and Jesus met her need. He told her:

Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life (John 4:13-14).

Christ confronted the deepest need of this woman and offered her a chance to begin life anew. The more you drink from the world’s water, the worse your thirst will become.

Are you restless and discontent? Just as He offered living water to the woman at the well, He offers it to you. When you drink of Him, you will thirst no more.

Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Please forgive me for the times I forsake You, the source of living water. I am thirsty and ask today for You to fill me to overflowing with Your life-giving water. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.

God's Timing - Tuesday's Dose - 20th December 2016

Pin It


"But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." - 2 Peter 3:8-10 (KJV).

Thoughts for Today

Some people are very ignorant concerning the return of Christ. You will hear people say, "Where is He? There are no signs of Him!" Most of us who read the Bible can see the signs of His return coming to pass and we know that it is just a matter of time. We wait and wait for God, but then after years of waiting someone tells us, "I thought He was coming?". He is coming, but what we must understand is that the Lord, is eternal and His timing is not like our timing. A thousand years with Him is like one day. To him the time of His return hasn't really been that long. We're living in year 2013 after the death of Christ, to Him that is like two days. It's not that long to Him, so when He says soon... He isn't lying, he just has a different definition of soon than we do. When you talk about God, you talk about an eternal being who never dies or grows old, He is not restricted to time. He always was and always will be.

God, is also patient and loving. The Lord, is not slacking toward His promise of His return, but He is long-suffering to us. He isn't willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have everlasting life. God, waits because He loves you! I've had people tell me, "How could God, send people to Hell who never got the message about Him?". Well, let me explain something else: When Christ died on the cross He went to the bowels of the earth (Hell) for three days. He didn't go there because He did something wrong, but He went there to preach to all the souls who didn't know Him. Those souls were given another chance. Does that sound like a God, who doesn't give everyone a chance? I believe that before one dies they some how get a chance. That is my personal belief, but I also believe that it is our job to spread the Word of God, to those who don't know Him.

Anyway, back to the subject on hand. God, is not slacking nor did He lie about the return of Christ. God, can not lie. I'm telling you the reason is as these scriptures say, He wants everyone to have a chance. There is also a scripture where Jesus, says, "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." If you want the return of Christ, then help the cause and spread God's Word to the world! It's our job to help the prophesy come to pass. Spread God's Word and don't fear the end of this world!

Also these scriptures say, "The day of the Lord, shall come as a thief in the night.". That means to be ready and right with God, at all times. The day you stop expecting Christ, to return is the day He may very well come and you may not be ready to go. Put on clothes (righteousness) and get ready to leave with Jesus! To answer the question, "When will Christ return?". No one knows, but it will be in His timing!

Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for this message and for all things. Please forgive us of all our sins and we forgive all those who've wronged us. Help us to be ready for your return at all times and to never think that you are slacking concerning your promise. Help us to spread your gospel to all the nations of this earth. Spark a revival through us. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
