Tuesday's Dose - 27th January 2015

God Is The True Champion

Today's Scripture

“Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle” - (Psalm 24:8).

Thoughts for Today

Fear can paralyze us—leading us to believe that moving in any direction will result in something bad. In fact, we can become afraid to face our fears mostly because we are afraid of facing them alone.

As the Israelites faced the daily boasts of Goliath, they cowered at his challenge. He loomed over the Israelite army, standing taller than everyone else in their camp. Day after day, Goliath challenged the Israelites until a man stepped forward, one who was brave enough to stand up to him—even though he was only half Goliath's size.

David, who refused to use King Saul's armor, could not believe the boasts of this man. Though Goliath towered over him, David saw no need to hide in fear from this gargantuan mortal.

Despite what seemed to be a one-sided challenge, David knew that he was not alone. As we read his writings in Psalms, we come to an understanding that he had a keen awareness of God's protective presence. Standing in front of Goliath would be no different for David than facing a bear or a lion bent on killing one of his father's sheep.

While Goliath struck fear in the hearts of many men, David was brave enough to accept his challenge, knowing the Lord would be with him. A true champion knows he never faces any challenge or difficulty alone; God is with him.

As we face the challenges of this world, we must remember that God is the true champion. The victories we obtain come as a result of God's power at work in our lives. In every circumstance, He desires the best for us.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
As I face my fears, help me to realize You are always the source of my victory. May you always receive all of the glory. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.

Face Our Fears With The Faith - Monday's Dose - 26th January 2015

Monday's Dose - 26th January 2015

Face Our Fears With The Faith

Today's Scripture

“For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies” - (Psalm 57:10).

Thoughts for Today

Life's furious pace can be overwhelming, and our problems can be consuming. While we scheme to solve our problems, they seem to only grow larger and larger. One situation after another arises, and we feel as if we cannot face another trying moment. In fact, we respond by retreating because we are so afraid of another dilemma.

If ever there was a man who had his share of problems, it was David. As a shepherd for his father's flock, David always seemed to be addressing some sort of problem.

There was the problem of wild animals who wanted to kill his family's sheep. There was Goliath. There was King Saul, who relentlessly pursued David’s life.

Courage is not the absence of fear; rather, it is the conquest of fear. Surely, David was afraid as he faced death on a regular basis. However, he faced his fears by placing His faith in God’s ability to deliver Him.

As problems arise, we must learn to face our fears with the faith that God is able to deliver us. David writes, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1). In order to conquer fear, such as the fear of mounting problems, we must put our faith in who God is, leaning on His promises for His people.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, I do face fear. Please forgive me for retreating in the face of fear. I pray you will increase my faith and alleviate my fears as I trust in You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.

God's Amazing Plan - Sunday's Dose - 25th January 2015

Sunday's Dose - 25th January 2015

God's Amazing Plan

Today's Scripture

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is –his good, pleasing and perfect will” - (Romans 12:2).

Thoughts for Today

In His infinite love, God watches as we stumble along the path of life, opening His arms wide repeatedly to us. However, many believers are stranded along life's narrow road because they do not know how to recover from failure. Falling into sin and disobedience leads to dangerous territory, yet God wants us to know He is the Great Redeemer. He can transform our most dismal failures into victories.

Sin has dangerous consequences. However, when we do stumble, we must remember that the shame we feel is miniscule in comparison to the love God has for us.

Our guilt should drive us to the Cross where we are reminded of God's amazing plan of redemption. Real champions know how to get up off the ground and keep going. No matter how strong we are or how determined we are, our faith will be challenged.

Looking at our failures as being unforgivable is an injustice to the life and death of Jesus Christ. Once we have asked God to forgive us, we must view each failure as a teachable moment, a time where we gain God's wisdom and understanding.

When we humble ourselves before Him, we must remember that God can take the weakest moments of our lives and turn them into stepping stones on the path to spiritual transformation. And as we approach our heavenly Father with open ears to hear His direction for our lives, we must remember that He can carry us from the darkest valleys to the mountaintop.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, help me to learn from my mistakes, changing me as I submit my life to You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

Narrow Way that Pleased God - Saturday's Dose - 24th January 2015

Saturday's Dose - 24th January 2015

Narrow Way that Pleased God

Today's Scripture

“He was passing through from one city and village to another, teaching…someone said to Him, ‘Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?’ And He said to them, ‘Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.’” - Luke 13:22-24 NASB.

Thoughts for Today

While traveling toward Jerusalem, an unnamed person asked Jesus what seemed like a simple question: Whether just a few people would be saved. We can imagine the person expected a clear statement. Instead, Jesus focused on those who were listening. He wanted them to be concerned about how they were living.

He began by stressing that they should focus on entering “through the narrow door.” They should realize that there were many “doors” from which they could choose. As they made decisions, they should focus on the narrow way that pleased God.

Jesus stressed that they must “strive” to enter through this narrow door, using a word that suggests a contest, a fight. He was warning that we’re involved in a struggle. We must be prepared to wrestle. In fact, He warned that many “will seek to enter and will not be able.”

Jesus then used the analogy of people seeking entrance to a house. Once the owner closes the door, it remains closed. He only will open it for the right person, for a person whose life is right in His sight.

In this analogy, the people knocking on the door were surprised by the owner’s response. They reminded the owner of their lives and accomplishments. But even though the owner did not deny their conclusions, he told them they had fallen short: “I tell you, I do not know where you are from.” Disqualified and rejected, they were told: “Depart from me, all you evildoers.”

Today, remember how easy it can be to make wrong assumptions. Make sure that you seek to enter by the narrow door. Make certain that your life is right with God, so He will open the door when you knock.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, search my heart. Reveal anything that is displeasing to You. Help me to enter through the narrow door. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

Utterly Astounded - Friday's Dose - 23rd January 2015

Friday's Dose - 23rd January 2015

Utterly Astounded

Today's Scripture

“Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you.” Habakkuk 1:5 NKJV.

Thoughts for Today

Things did not make sense to Habakkuk. Everywhere he looked there was violence and injustice. The wicked always seemed to triumph. He felt that God caused him to see these things, though He wasn’t taking any action, so he asked, “Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble?” (v. 3)

God assured him that He did know what was going on and that He would avenge every wrong. He even promised to answer in ways that would surprise Habakkuk: The prophet would “be utterly astounded!” The Lord was doing a work that would be hard to believe.

Through this experience, Habakkuk’s eyes were opened. When we cry out to God for answers, it may seem like He isn’t doing anything and isn’t answering our prayers. When we face needs, we can wonder if He really is hearing us or if He truly will help.

At times like these, it can be easy to have questions and even be filled with doubt.

We can stop believing or place limits on the flow of God’s blessings and power. But, as Habakkuk learned, God hears and sees everything. His plans are secure. His judgments and timing are perfect. And He is always faithful.

It’s crucial to realize that, with God, nothing is impossible. He can do “far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). There are no limits to His power. His resources are beyond our comprehension.

When you think about your needs, don’t limit God. Think about the vastness of His creation! Think of His overwhelming abundance!

Commit every burden to Him. Trust Him. Let Him speak to you. And get ready—He may answer your prayers in ways that surprise and amaze you.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, I believe that You can do anything. Thank You that I can trust in You. I commit my needs to You. Thank You for answering my prayers. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
