Encouraging One Another

Something to think about.

Encouraging One Another

23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:23-25

We’ve all heard it, I don’t have to go to church to be a Christian. Why then did God institute corporate gatherings? In the old and new testaments, the people gathered together at predetermined times to be taught, educated, and uplifted in the word and ways of God.  We were not created to be spiritual isolationist. We were designed to be bound together in love for our God.  Not even in Christ did we see the totality of God. We need each other to stay faithful to be educated and grow. To reach the purpose God has provided for us. We were made to help each other along the path of life. Without each other, we will end up creating a path that will not lead us to Christ, salvation or joy. We will end up lost.

 

Confidence

Something to think about.

Confidence

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)

I have this privilege and confident assurance of knowing if I seek Him I will find Him, and He will help me. My hope and confidence lead me to ask what do societies turn to? The reason we fail personally and corporately is that we do not approach God we do not seek Him we don’t receive grace and mercy. We are all the same we need help. Turn to God, seek Him find him get to know Him and obtain His grace and mercy.

Prevail

Something to think about.

Prevail

“They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the LORD, “to deliver you.””Jeremiah 1:19

This promise of God can not be fulfilled if you are outside the will of God. When you are in a battle whatever it may be, the first thing you need to ask yourself is, am I in the will of God? God will only be involved in the lives of those who invite Him in, He will not invade your domain. Only after you have invited Him in can He deliver you. If you’re outside the will of God, He will definitely use you but not necessarily to deliver you. You have the right to fight the battles of your life alone with your limited resources and knowledge. But why would you, when you can have the creator of the universe on your side?

If

Something to think about.

If

2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 28:2

15 “But if you will not obey the voice of the Lord your God or be careful to do all his commandments and his statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you. Deuteronomy 28: 15

You will live out one of these two verses. You will be blessed or cursed depending on the “If.” Notice it is not optional, blessings or curses will overtake you. You know people that have been blessed, and you know people who have been cursed. If you can look beyond the portrayed facade, you will find these verses lived out in astonishing clarity. 

Who Do You Call?

Something to think about.

Who Do You Call?

Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”

The Messenger of God

Something to think about.

The Messenger of God

12 Then he said to me, “Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and humbled yourself before your God, your words have been heard, and I have come because of your words. 13 The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia, Daniel 10:12-13

Know that you will be opposed! If you do the will of God it will not be easy, it will not be without strife, it will not be without obstacles.  Consider this, you are not Daniel you are the messenger of God. You have been left with the kings of Persia. You can not do it alone! You need the Spirit of God, The Holy Spirit to help you accomplish your task.

Deliverance

Something to think about.

Deliverance

13 And lead us not into temptation,

   but deliver us from evil. Matthew 6:13 (ESV)

As evil explodes throughout the world, it is apparent to me that we need to ask God to fulfill this prayer now more than ever. God please delivers us from evil.
