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.

Repentance Restores Relationship - Sunday's Dose - 19th February 2017

Pin It

"The next day Moses said to the people, 'You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin'" - (Exodus 32:30).

Thoughts for Today

We all have done something that we knew we should not have done. When confronted with our actions, how did we respond? Aaron's reaction, when Moses confronted him about making the golden calf, was one of rationalization.

He did not deny his wrong, but merely explained it away. He said to Moses: "You know how prone these people are to evil. They said to me, 'Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don't know what has happened to him.' So I told them, 'Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.' Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf" - (Exodus 32:22-24).

How many times have we had our backs against the wall and come up with a ridiculous reason for our actions? It would be so much better to confess our wrongdoing and repent.

The Bible is full of examples of those who denied their wrongdoing, and those who confessed and repented. Adam, after eating the forbidden fruit, tried to pass the blame onto Eve. In contrast, David repented when confronted with his sin with Bathsheba and God forgave him. However, his action was not without consequences. Repentance restores our relationship with the Lord but does not remove the consequences of our actions.

God wants us to honor and obey Him. When we do the wrong thing, we should confess our sin, and seek His forgiveness.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, please forgive me for the times I try to justify myself rather than confess my sin. Thank you for your grace and mercy.Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

The Act of Criticizing Others - Saturday's Dose - 18th February 2017

Pin It

“So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, ‘What are we to drink?’” - (Exodus 15:24).

Thoughts for Today

The person who reacts to life based on sheer human nature is often fickle. When the Israelites were waist deep in Egyptian mud with the whips of the slave masters on their backs, they wanted to be free. They cried out to God. He heard and answered their plea.

Then, the moment they faced the slightest problem, they criticized Moses, whom God had used to deliver them from slavery. The people complained and grumbled to Moses even though he did everything for their own good. When they would get in trouble, he would intercede before God on their behalf.

Do you ever feel like Moses? You know you are doing the right thing—but, for certain people, it is not good enough. Is there someone in your life who is critical of you no matter what?

Constructive criticism can be helpful. When someone tells you in sincerity something beneficial to you, accept it in the spirit in which it is given. However, do not accept or dwell on the unjust criticism of those who seek to tear you down out of their fear.

Moses was patient with those who criticized him. He did not respond in anger or hate. He did not stop interceding for them. Today, some would say he kept a Christ-like attitude.

Learn to be someone who recognizes the difference between right and wrong criticism. With God's help, you can respond with an attitude of grace and forgiveness to those who may unjustly criticize you. Be careful not to fall into the act of criticizing others. The Bible instructs us to love others as we would like to be loved (Mark 12:31)

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Father, please help me to be a person who understands who I am in You. Help me to recognize just and unjust criticism and respond in Your love. Thank You for Your continual protection and strength. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

Contentment Placed by God - Friday's Dose - 17th February 2017

Pin It

“Each one should remain in the situation which he was in when God called him” - (1 Corinthians 7:20).

Thoughts for Today

Have you ever played the comparison game? The rules are simple: Look at what other people have or do, and then desire those things for yourself.

This so-called “game” brings discontentment and envy. The Bible teaches that we are to be content with the life God has given us (Philippians 4:11-12). This does not mean that we settle for less or stop trying to reach our goals.

Contentment is something God has designed for us. Whether we are single or married, we can achieve contentment and peace within our hearts. In order to do this, we must first discover who we are in Christ and realize what He has done for us. He has saved us from an eternal death and chosen us as His beloved children.

Do you ever compare yourself to someone you think is more spiritual? Do you think less of your prayer life when you compare it to that of a prayer warrior you admire? Do you feel inadequate to share your testimony after hearing someone else share his? God does not measure your life against the life of another.

Seek God and learn to be content with what He has provided. He is your greatest source of contentment and satisfaction.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for all You have provided to me. Help me to be a good steward of my time, talent and resources. Forgive me for coveting what another has rather than thanking You for what You have given me. I pray I will find my contentment and satisfaction in 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.

Powerful Life Principle - Wednesday's Dose - 15th February 2017

Pin It

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing” - (1 Thessalonians 5:11).

Thoughts for Today

When we know and understand people better, we are more empowered to relate to them. Knowing more about individuals allows us to speak directly into their lives where they need it most, when they need it most.

Whether you are in a marital relationship or not, taking time to get to know someone will help you bring out the best in that person. In 1 Peter 3:7, husbands are given the charge to honor their wives. This is a powerful life principle that we should apply to all relationships.

People respond to different acts of love in different ways. However, everyone responds in a positive manner when someone takes an interest in his/her life. We all enjoy sharing our life stories. And when you take an interest in someone that goes beyond the courteous “How are you doing?” question, people come alive and open up their lives.

During Jesus’ time on earth He had a large following, but He did not act like a superstar. He spent time with people and ate in their homes. When Zacchaeus was struggling to get a glimpse of Jesus from atop a sycamore tree, Jesus looked up at him and took more than a passing interest in his life. He suggested they eat dinner together.

After one meal with Jesus, Zacchaeus, the once-hated tax collector, experienced a changed life. He returned the money to those he had taxed unfairly. In fact, he was so moved by the Savior’s love that he returned much more than was taken.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Please give me a genuine interest in people. I pray for You to flow through me into their lives. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
