This next weekend (April 6th and 7th) I will be in Salt Lake City Utah, for a mission trip and Continue Reading
To be a witness for Jesus is the most gratifying thing for my life. I am so uplifted and my faith in Christ is elevated.
2 Corinthians 5:20-21 (KJV)
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
1 Corinthians 4:3-5 (KJV)
3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
We are not to be found judging others, for all judgement is in the hands of the Lord Jesus and not for man to decide.
2 Timothy 3:15-17 (KJV)
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Peter 1:19-21 (KJV)
19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Spirit is able to lead a person of faith to do things that are not possible on their own. This is for the glory of God.
The Bible is the greatest book of all time. Nothing is greater, for it was written by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I pray Lord that many more people will have a renewed heart to seek after You. Even if the last time they did so was years ago, when they were a child, may they think back upon this time and re-engage with you again. Truly what people have learned in the past, when it comes to You, is still in their hearts ready to come out again. It is only the bitterness in people that makes them not hear You and reject Your teachings. Even those people like Paul the apostle, me and other evangelists are able to be used for Your kingdom, but the people that listen are always those that are ready and willing to hear. Everyone else is either there to wage more questions than find answers. This is very disturbing and my heart aches when I see people only trying to fight against Your message of hope, when only You are trying to save them from their own destruction. So I pray Lord that people's eyes will finally be opened and that their hearts will be ready to receive the gospel, starting today. I am a willing servant for You God and wish that many more souls are saved in Your kingdom. I know that I cannot do this on my own and pray that Your Holy Spirit will always be with me. May You take over every word that comes out of my mouth and convict every lost soul of their sins. In this will they desire Your mercy and find forgiveness. I trust in You, Jesus. You are my Savior and my deliverer. All the praise and glory to Your mighty Name. I love You Lord. Amen.
It is only the bitterness in people that makes them not hear God and reject His teachings. An open heart will change everything.
Acts 28:25-27 (KJV)
25 And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,
26 Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
27 For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
As the people left Paul, having mixed feelings about what they just heard, Paul then quoted from Isaiah 6:9,10. Continue Reading
When times are hard, look to the Lord God for guidance. Seeking His hand is the only way to find true comfort when we need it most.
Acts 27:22-25 (KJV)
22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you, but of the ship.
23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,
24 Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
Lord God, I know that You are so good to us, even in the good and bad times. As long as our hearts are willing to seek You, You are there for us in a big way. Only through You, can the hardest of times feel peaceful and at ease. Where there was anxiety and fear, You come in and replace all those thoughts with glad tidings of great joy. We may not see it in the moment but soon we will have much to be grateful. And not only this Lord, You are able to help us stay positive and to uplift others that are down and depressed. With Your presence, we are able to look outside ourselves and see who we can uplift and comfort also. Your thoughts of visiting a person in jail, a person that just lost a loved one, a person that just lost a job, a person that is struggling financially, and others, will come to our minds. These visits are what delivers the peace people need. Thank You for reminding us about others that are also in need. Not only when we love one another are these people uplifted, but our souls are also and our faith is elevated. I know this to be true, since I recently lost a job and with my friends coming over and praying for me, this is what lifted me out of my sorrows. For I know You were there and sent them. Thank You God. Now I am at peace and there is great joy in my heart. I know that my future is bright, because of Your hand in my life. I am so grateful and give You all the praise. I say these things in Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
