  • Loving The Man

    It is not enough to merely look at the heart of a man, but to love the man despite the undesirable things you might find there. We are not called to love the undesirable things but called to love the man. Just as Jesus loves all of us despite our shortcomings we are to love others. God sees us for who we really are and loves us anyway. It’s not an easy thing to do to love someone even if they’ve hurt you and it’s something I need God’s help with, but with Jesus I can overcome unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, and anything that gets in the way of loving others. This is my prayer today, that God help me be a good representative of the love of Jesus to all men. Loving those who bless me and those who curse me, giving me a heart for others and a heart like His.

    1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)
    7 But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

    Matthew 5:43-48 (NKJV)
    Love Your Enemies
    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

  • Who Are We?

    We can not physically see our dreams, yet we envision them. We can not touch them and yet we feel them. Even in all this we still believe in them. It doesn’t matter how hard things get we still chase after them, pursue them.
    We can not physically see God yet we envision Him. We can not Touch God and yet we feel Him. And though He’s always here we still deny Him. We run from God, and why? Why can we believe in our dreams and yet not believe in the very God that gave us the eyes to see, the ears to hear, skin to feel, and a heart to dream. The earth, the trees, the dirt, the rocks do not have ears to hear, eyes to see, mouths to speak and yet the Bible says “the whole earth cries out for the Redemption of man” and when Jesus was crucified and His blood hit the earth it quaked. The earth was redeemed and it cried out, it shook.
    Why? Why do we think we are better? Why is man so haughty as to ignore our God, our Saviour? Who are we that we should deny the Creator of anything? Who is man that he should betray his Maker?

  • Speak God’s Word

    There is power in speaking God’s Word. God works within His Word. God’s Word is alive and when we speak it with our mouths we allow the Holy Spirit to move in our lives. The Bible talks about the power of the tongue and the power of God and His Word. Combine the two and you have the power that God wants us to walk in because we give the Holy Spirit free reign to work within those promises in our lives.

  • The Spirit Of God Gives Us Eyes To See

    The Spirit of God gives us eyes to see and ears to hear both to see who He is and so that we may identify the enemy and his devices. If we truly seek God He will give us His vision so that we may see all that could hinder us and let’s face it satan trying to hide from God is like a little kid playing hide and seek. They stand out in the open with their hands over their eyes. Without God we are blind to satan and his schemes but with God we see it all.

  • Woe To The Nation

    Our nation is coming under judgement because of our lack of respect and fear for God. Any nation that does not respect God is a cursed nation and I’m sad to say that our nation is falling under that category. It’s not even a lack of respect but God has shown me that they despise Him and so This is what the Lord God says to the people of this nation:

    This nation is going to see judegment like it’s never seen before. Anyone who stays close to God will not suffer, but woe to those who do not. God is an all consuming fire and anything that is not of Him will be burned up, only what is of Him will remain. Woe unto the nation that disobeys the Living God. His Word is truth and He reigns forever. All glory to Him forever and ever amen.

    Deuteronomy 4:24
    For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

    Hebrews 12:26
    25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

    28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

  • God Is Love/Love Never Fails You

    Love is a Being, Love is alive. Love breathed in us the breath of life and we’ve been breathing ever since. Love gave us hope and Love came here and dwelt among us. Love saved us and we are redeemed, we are forgiven. God is Love and Love can only be fully understood through Him. Love will never fail you.

  • Prayer For Today

    I am just one person, I am small, I am a sinner who makes mistakes on a daily basis, but with God I am much more. I am redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Jesus bought me at a price and He saved my life. Because of Him I can be used by God to do great things. I offer my hands, my heart, my life to Him and if it be God’s will that He should touch people through me than I am living/serving the life full of purpose He has called me to live. Nothing is more satisfying and nothing is worth more to me than that. To live the life God has for me as His servant walking in humility and Love with His Love and Grace forever and ever. I surrender it all to You my God and my Saviour, amen.

  • Say Amen God Is Faithful

    Amen
    Everytime I think of all that I’ve been through in my life I find great joy in both the good and even the bad because in all those times God has proven Himself faithful to me and He has made me stronger than I ever thought I could be. God never promised that everything would be easy, but He did promise to be with us through it all and give us the strength to overcome. Everyday I hold on to His promises and everyday I see His Love more and more.

  • God Speaks Through The Little Things (Accompanying Song Flashlight By: Hunter Hayes)

    Everyday God speaks to me not only by speaking to my heart but through the little things that so often go unnoticed. It makes me so happy to know that I am loved by God. God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. God cares about every second of everyday of our lives. God is a God of detail, everyday He speaks to us through the small things, it’s like recieving little love letters from God throughout the day. We just need to take the time to notice them. God has taught me this in the past year and I’ve found that if we take each day one at a time trusting that God will guide us to where He wants us and pay attention to the small things He uses to speak to us it makes everyday a blessing.

  • 1 Timothy 4:12 Humility

    1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
    12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

    I want to take some time to talk to the youth today and probably not the way that you think. Many of us who are young love to quote 1 Timothy 4:12 where it says “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young,” but many of us when we quote it we stop there. It’s very easy to use this scripture in a haughty way. It’s easy to say something and when it is not recieved by our elders going “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young.” The thing I would like to point out is that there is a key part of the verse that comes after the young part and that there is a way that God wants us to walk so that our elders do respect what we say. The second half of 1 Timothy 4:12 is “but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” this is a vital part of 1 Timothy 4:12.
    People who are older have lived a long time and have experienced many things first hand and no matter how much you have experienced or how much you know about God it’s important to remember that respect from our elders is earned it’s not a right. There is a part of us that will always be younger to them but if we walk in the way that God calls us to walk then earning that respect is not hard to do.
    In 1 Peter 5:5-6 it says “5 In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,
    “God opposes the proud
    but shows favor to the humble.”
    6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”

    The answer to how to earn the respect from not only our elders but our peers is humility. We are all called to be servants to one another and in order to be a servant we must first be humble. The reason why we are looked down on as younger people is because we don’t know how to walk in humility and we don’t know how to have self control. We need to first respect our elders, we need to pray and ask God to help us know when to speak and when not to speak, what to say and what not to say to our elders. Respecting our elders in the Lord is an important part of 1 Timothy 4:12. My parents have always taught me to respect my elders: learning to listen to them, don’t be quick to speak, be polite,and trust God to bring you up. A godly adult will see in God’s time that His hand is on us. You don’t have to prove yourslef by talking too much or even too little. If we treat our elders the way we would like them to treat us then in God’s time they will. I urge all of us who are younger to respect our elders by first asking God to give us humility and then asking Him to give us the wisdom to know when to speak and when to be silent. We are an example for our peers and by being an example to our peers we will earn the respect of our elders because they will see God’s hand on us. Remember to be humble in all you say and do. The attitude of our hearts speak volumes.
