God’s Sovereignty - Monday's Dose - 26th June 2017

Pin It

“You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great” - (Psalm 18:35).

Thoughts for Today

It happens quite often in the world of sports: a player or a team once on top comes crashing down amidst intense pressure and somewhere buried beneath the rubble is their confidence. Instead of dominating their sport like they once did, they suddenly begin making mistakes they have never made before. Rather than winning championships, they hope to just be respectable.

In today’s media-hungry world, it only takes a few people to begin denouncing a team or player before everyone joins in, including the players and teams. Those who once seemed invincible now seem average. Climbing out of such a devastating place is a difficult task.

We, too, face public opinion each day in our lives. Though we may firmly espouse the doctrines of our faith, when life turns dark and we become gloomy, the people we interact with on a daily basis begin to question our faith. Whenever we experience tragedy, our tendency is to shake an angry fist at God rather than turning to Him for comfort.

Many people begin to drift away from their faith because events occur in their lives that make them doubt God’s sovereignty and they begin to listen to the naysayers around them.

Whether it is a broken relationship or the death of a loved one, God does not abandon us; rather, He takes those situations and begins to weave His love into our lives in unexpected ways.

We see His hand at work and realize He has never left us. As believers dedicated to following God, we must not let public opinion sway our faith in Him, holding fast to our confidence that He alone is our Savior.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Help me to recall Your victories in my life in the past and trust You no matter what. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.

There is a Spiritual Power - Saturday's Dose - 25th June 2017

Pin It

"God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind" - (2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV).

Thoughts for Today

If you visit Rome, you can see the dungeon that once housed the Apostle Paul. You can stand within the same four solid walls that once formed his cell. You can look up through the hole in the center of the ceiling from which he received food and water.

There are no windows, no doors, and no way of escape; and yet, for Paul, it was not a place of defeat or fear. It was a place of both victory and hope. Though Paul was confined physically, he was free spiritually.

We don't know how long Paul was in this environment. However, we do know that from here he was taken to a place of execution. Even in death, Paul did not face defeat. The moment after he drew his last earthly breath, he was embraced by the Lord.

There are times when we view our circumstances from the wrong perspective. We face difficulty and wonder how God can be glorified. We suffer through loss and heartache and can't imagine how He will turn our circumstances around.

When we set our focus on the problem instead of on Christ, we miss the infusion of God's power. Paul's spiritual gaze was set on an eternal goal, not his earthly problems.

In times of sorrow and hopelessness, there is a spiritual power available to each one of us through Jesus Christ. Therefore, there is never an occasion to give up. We have an eternal hope that will never abandon us.

What are you facing today that has the potential to cause you to quit, throw in the towel, and walk away? Remember, Jesus Christ is your strength. He has the power you need to live in victory. When you place your trust in Him, He lifts you up and gives you the strength you need to endure the trials of life.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father,, please forgive me for misplacing my focus. May my eyes be fixed on You, not people and things around me. I pray, by Your Spirit, I would have the vision and courage of Paul. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.". 

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

God Alone is Our Deliverer - Saturday's Dose - 24th June 2017

Pin It

“In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence” - (Ephesians 3:12).

Thoughts for Today

To walk truly in confidence, we must realize its source. If we place our full confidence in our human abilities, we will be sorely let down time and again. No matter how accomplished we are, no matter how much intelligence we have acquired, no matter how talented we may be—God alone is our deliverer, and He must be the One upon whom we rely.

Though David was being run ragged through the mountains, fleeing a mad king, he never lost confidence that God was going to deliver him. However, David ventured into new situations with extreme caution, consulting the Lord before acting. "[David] inquired of the Lord, saying, 'Shall I go and attack these Philistines?'" - (1 Samuel 23:2).

True champions do not lose their confidence because they know they alone are not the sole source of victory. They understand that their confidence rests in a loving heavenly Father, who has hopes and dreams for their lives far beyond what they could ever imagine.

David knew that while he was fleeing King Saul, he was under the protection of God's wing. During our journey with Christ, we can probably mark with ease the days, months, and years when we were seeking direction from Him. And with the same ease, we can tell when we were not.

When prayer becomes a discipline in our lives, we will remain confident in God, walking closely with God into what He has called us to do. When we inquire of the Lord, asking Him to prepare the way for us to walk in His calling, He is faithful to do so.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Instill in me the discipline to seek Your direction at every decision-making point in my life. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

God's Grace and Kindness - Thursday's Dose - 22nd June 2017

Pin It

“You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit”- (Job 10:12).

Thoughts for Today

Inside each of us there is a hunger and a thirst for justice. We want to see the guilty person get his just due. Yet, when it comes to ourselves, we want mercy and grace extended in our direction. We may be deserving of the worst kind of punishment, but we long for someone to give us a second chance before harshly condemning us.

Although God is just in His ways, He also is merciful. In fact, God's Word makes it simple: "Mercy triumphs over judgment" (James 2:13). God would rather extend mercy toward us than the harsh consequences of judgment. That is why Jesus gave His life for us, so we would not have to suffer the consequences of sin. Jesus paid the debt we owe for our sin.

As believers pursuing the heart of God, we must realize that if this trait of grace and kindness is at the heartbeat of God, we, too, should emulate it. When someone sins against us, we should not judge him for his actions and sever our relationship with him; rather, we should lovingly approach him and seek reconciliation.

Instead of carrying around in our hearts a thirst for vengeance against someone who has wronged us, we should bestow upon him an abundance of grace and kindness, knowing that such an act can soften even the hardest of hearts. If we are living for Christ, we are living proof that His grace and kindness can transform a heart of sin into a heart that loves God.

Set a goal to demonstrate God's grace and kindness to everyone, for all men and women are in need of His life-changing compassion.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, fill my heart with grace and kindness for the world around me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Test Your Christian Identity - Wednesday's Dose - 21st June 2017

Pin It

“Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus” - (2 Timothy 2:3).

Thoughts for Today

One of the best ways to test your Christian identity is to see how willing you are to tell others what God has done for you through Jesus Christ.

Another way to check your true identity is to measure your level of dedication. Are you dedicated to Christ even when the road is risky and you may face hardships? Do you fight spiritual battles rather than shrink from them? Those dedicated to Christ fight spiritual battles to win. In a spiritual battle, there are only two people: the defeated and the victor. We are conquerors for Christ, and we have been given the victory!

A third way to test your true identity is by asking yourself if you are willing to live life by God’s rules. In ancient Greece, winning athletes were crowned with an evergreen wreath. But no athlete, no matter how brilliant or successful, received a crown if he did not compete according to the rules.

In 2 Timothy, Paul admonishes us to remain faithful to God. We are to play according to His rules, not by the world’s rules. We are not to operate by rules of a rewritten Bible, which tell us to do whatever feels right to us. Rules like these offer no standards. In order to live a victorious life, we need a solid, unshakeable framework, and this is what God provides through His Word.

Set a goal for your life: Be committed to learning more about God—His truth, His Word, His love, and His forgiveness. Then share His love with someone who is lost and in need of eternal hope. When you play by His rules, you will discover a lasting peace that satisfies your soul.

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father,
Thank you for my salvation through Jesus Christ. I desire to learn more about You—Your Truth, Word, love and forgiveness. As I do, please guide me as I share You with others. I thank You for the honor of sharing Your Gospel. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
