Experience His Amazing Grace - Friday's Dose - 24th February 2017

Pin It

“His grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me” - (1 Corinthians 15:10).

Thoughts for Today

While God’s grace opens doors for us to experience freedom like we have never known, it is also the foundation for us to develop a deeper relationship with God. As we invite God into every area of our lives, we begin to understand how He wants to change us. We view those once-proud areas of our hearts in shambles as waiting to be rebuilt by the great Redeemer.

As we watch Him begin to put things into order for the first time in our lives, we understand we are mere bystanders, helpless to finish the work He so desperately desires to do in our lives. Once we reach that point of surrender, the Holy Spirit enters the construction zone of our hearts and begins to work.

So often, we want to cling to our lives instead of yielding them to the Lord. When we are worn down to the point of surrender, we cling only to Him. We realize it is God’s grace that has provided the miraculous salvation of our hearts. And we are empowered through the Holy Spirit to see the transition of ownership of our lives transferred to God.

The Apostle Paul underwent a dramatic conversion in his life. Everything he stood for was shattered in an instant. All the pious religious duties he carried out were rendered meaningless. He encountered God—and God made it clear it was Paul’s heart He was pursuing.

As the Holy Spirit began to transform Paul from a man who oversaw the murder of countless Christians to a man who preached God’s Word, Paul experienced God’s amazing grace.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Let me experience Your freedom in my life through the power of the Holy Spirit. I cannot rebuild the shattered areas of my life without You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.

Always you will be a Winner - Thursday's Dose - 23rd February 2017

Pin It

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” - (Philippians 3:14).

Thoughts for Today

Coach Bear Bryant is known as a football legend. But more than anything else, he is remembered as a winner. At the end of his 38-season career, he held six national championships and more victories than any other coach in college football history.

In a tribute to Coach Bryant in the February 19, 1983, issue of National Review, Victor Gold wrote, “Like all authentic Southern legends, he was of the soil.”

Bryant once said, “If I hadn’t found football, I would have ended up behind a mule just like my daddy. But I will tell you one thing: I would have plowed the straightest furrow in Arkansas.”

Somebody asked Bryant if he considered himself an innovator or a trendsetter.

“No,” Bryant replied, “I’m nothing but a winner.”

As a victor in a battle takes away the spoils of victory from his enemy, when Jesus died on the cross, He took away the privileges of Satan. “Having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross” (Colossians 2:15).

Because of the cross, the barrier of sin that once separated you from God has been removed. The gulf of sin has been bridged. The death that characterizes your fate has been taken away, and through Christ you have been made alive.

Wherever you are spiritually today, you can be a winner. Satan has no power over you. When Christ died on the cross and rose again, He was saying to you, “Be a winner.”

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father,
Thank You for defeating Satan and making a way for me to experience Your eternal life. Break the chains with which Satan tries to bind 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.

The Power of His Grace - Wednesday's Dose - 22nd February 2017

Pin It

“When he arrived and saw the evidence of the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts” - (Acts 11:23).

Thoughts for Today

As God pursues us with His wonderful grace, something magnificent takes place in our lives. Before God’s grace was extended to us, we were dead in our sins and powerless to overcome them. We were in bondage to the enemy, and the future never looked so dim. Then, God entered the scene, desperate to demonstrate the power of His grace.

After Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, the Bible begins to tell the unfolding tale of God’s pursuit of the human heart through the goodness of His grace. And each time God catches us and reveals the power inside His grace, our once-dead souls become alive! Instead of being unable to fight sin’s strongholds, God’s grace gives us the power to overcome them through the Holy Spirit.

Now, we come to the battle equipped to win—not just to survive another round. God’s grace empowers us to be conquerors through Christ, redeeming what once seemed all but dead.

God entered our lives to save us, not just to show up and to impress us with His omnipotence. He came to deliver us from all the bondage of the past and to bring us ultimate redemption as we follow after Him.

Through salvation, we encounter God’s grace. Then, one day His transformation begins in our hearts. All along, He pursues us with His grace in an attempt to get our attention. Even though at times we may have run in the opposite direction, He remains steadfast in His quest. When He captures us, the parts of our hearts that were cold toward Him suddenly warm and come to life.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Thank You for the way You pursued me and called me into relationship with You! 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 Has Overcome The World - Tuesday's Dose - 21st February 2017

Pin It

"The angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel's army, withdrew and went behind them" - (Exodus 14:19).

Thoughts for Today

God allowed the Israelites to leave Egypt. He had heard their cries for help and sent Moses to lead them out of bondage and to the Promised Land. More than likely, when Israel left captivity, they thought they were free and would not have to face fear again.

None of us should face deliverance with the idea that our troubles will begin again within weeks. We need to celebrate God's deliverance, provision, and blessing. However, we also need to recognize trials are a part of living in this world. Thankfully, Jesus has told us to take heart because He has overcome the world. We can move forward confidently knowing God will use our difficulties in this world to train us for even greater blessings.

The people of Israel left Egypt, but they had to face the Red Sea, Pharaoh's army, and 40 years in the desert before they were ready to enter the land God had promised Abraham. Thus, their freedom from Egyptian slavery was their first step toward blessing, but it also was a step toward another faith experience. Would they trust God or cry out in fear? They cried out, even with the Angel of the Lord going before them and a pillar of cloud behind them.

The cloud represented the presence of God's Spirit, and the Angel of the Lord was the pre-incarnate Christ. Yet, Israel was not tuned into God's presence and provision. As they approached the Red Sea and saw Pharaoh's army pursuing them, they became fearful. The physical evidence of God's presence was not enough.

God has never failed to keep His promises. He was faithful to Israel then, and He will be faithful to His children today. We may not have a pillar of fire or a cloud in front of us, but we have the Spirit of God living within us. The same One who was with the Israelites at the crossing of the Red Sea is with you today.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, please help me to recognize Your presence in my life. My desire is to live by faith and not by sight. Deliver me from fear and help me to trust You, even when the circumstances look bleak. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.

God's Wondrous Gift of Mercy and Grace - Monday's Dose - 20th February 2017

Pin It

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” - (John 3:16).

Thoughts for Today

Even in His death, Jesus was thinking of you and me. He was preparing a way for us to know the Father and for us to receive His gift of salvation.

It was no mistake that Jesus was crucified between two thieves. One was repentant, and the other blasphemed the Lord.

One believed, and the other denied the Truth of God. One accepted God's wondrous gift of mercy and grace; the other turned his back on the offer and lost his soul.

There is no escaping the Truth. We can choose eternal life or settle for an endless death that is far worse than any torment we can imagine. The two men that hung dying beside the Savior could be any one of us.

Just like them, we must make a choice. God has chosen to save all men, but not everyone will come to Him. Those who do will immediately be saved and will spend eternity enjoying the love and intimate devotion of our Heavenly Father. Those who don't will spend an eternity separated from Him.

Joshua challenged the nation of Israel with these words:

If serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15).

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, I want to serve You and You alone. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer.Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
