Oh Lord, I pray that what You did for us on the cross will start to mean something people, especially those that say they believe in You now. It is sad to see so many people proclaim to know You, but then want to hear nothing about the Bible or the cross, while in conversation with them. It seems to me that these people don't understand the gospel and are only lying to themselves that they are saved. If people truly knew You, then they'd be coming to You with their confessions and calling upon Your Name, Jesus, daily. They would desire to have that personal relationship with You and allow Your blood to cover their sins. People would be saying hallelujah for what You did for them on the cross and not be bothered by it at all, if what You did was meaningful to people. This truly worries me, thinking of all the people that aren't allowing Your blood atonement to redeem them from their sins. I know that You are waiting for us all to come unto You, and it isn't hard at all. You never made it difficult for us to be saved, Lord. You simply made a way for us to find freedom from our sins and death and it is up to us to accept Your sacrifice. Thank You Lord for everything You have done for me and for all people. The cross means the world to me and I can never be tired of learning about Your sacrifice for sins. For this reason, I am happy to witness what You've done to the world. It is a blessing to proclaim the good news of the gospel message, which is the cross and the resurrection. I love You Lord and I pray that You will continue to strengthen me daily. Through Your hand, I am able to resist temptation. Thank You Lord. I love You. Amen.

1 Corinthians 1:17,18 (KJV)
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

The Message Of The Cross

No person on this earth has ever been saved, but through the blood of Jesus. Only because of what He did for us on the cross, does it make it possible to be redeemed and have our sins forgiven. Continue Reading

Genesis 48:15,16 (KJV)
15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,
16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

Lord God Almighty, I am grateful to know You and to have Your presence in my life. It is Your Words that give me new strength each day that I read the Bible. In prayer, have I come to know You as my Lord and Savior, for only You have the power to redeem me of my sins and give me strength to overcome my addictions. Where there was no power to resist the temptations of the evil one, I am now able to withstand them because of my great faith in You, oh God. Because You have taken my evil desires and transformed them unto Your perfect will, I am able to think more clearly and not give into sin as easily. It is only when I let my guard down is when I am susceptible to doing things that I know are wicked in Your sight. This breaks my heart and brings tears to my eyes each time I sin and fall, because of the lusts of the flesh. I don't want to do things that I know You hate, and therefore, I put my whole trust in Your will and not my own. It is my desire to walk in Your ways and be holy as You are holy, for that brings me happiness in this life. I don't want there to be anymore sorrow to hang over my head for what I have done, but to walk free of this sinful lifestyle and to honor You in my new walk. You are my God and I love You more than this life. I pray that You will take me by the hand and lead me from here on out. I love You God and I never want to live apart from Your love again. Thank You for saving me from my sins and dying for me on the cross. It is because of what You've done, that I am forgiven. I am different because of Your mercy and compassion for my life. These things I pray and give You all the glory and the praises You deserve. Amen.

You have truly done great things In my life and I am so grateful. Thank You God. I am in awe at Your great love for me. Just thinking of You, Lord, brings tears to my eyes. I have never been so loved by anyone but You, my Father. I pray that this love that You have shown to me, over the years, will also continue to bless other people's lives. May my actions show my love and devotion to You in all that I do. Your light is what I've found and I want everyone to know that You are the reason for it. My life has been transformed because of Your compassion, mercy and forgiveness for my life and I cannot hold in my praises to Your glory.

I've dreamt for many years to find freedom from all my sins and addictions and You heard my prayers and brought rest unto my soul. I knew not how to change my life, but by Your presence I found a new way think and to live. Truly, it was Your counsel that showed me the way. There was no longer a situation that was too hard that I could not get out of. And Lord, no temptation now is too strong as to take me down, because Your Spirit abides with me. I love You more than this world and all things. You are my greatest joy. Oh, how I love You Lord. May my faith and others continue to rest in what You did for us on the cross. I trust in You, Lord. It is an honor to live this life for You. Amen.

Jacob Blessed Pharaoh

Time went by while Israel and his family took residence in the land of Egypt, “and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.” (Genesis 47:27) Continue Reading

Genesis 46:1-3 (KJV)
1 And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.
2 And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
3 And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:

# Permanent link to Genesis 46:1-3
Lord, I pray that as believers in You, that we will also be faithful unto You. Be with us always, that our faith may stand up against the temptations of this world. I know that our flesh is weak without You in our lives. I cannot stand up to the lusts of the flesh without You, God. Therefore, I come unto You, Lord, each day of my life, that You may build me up and strengthen me in Your Word. I need Your guidance and direction in order to know what is right and what is wrong, and therefore, stay focused on doing Your will and not my own. My desires only get me into trouble, in that moment that You are not in my heart or mind. For the few seconds or minutes that my focus is shifted upon other things, is when my mind starts to wonder. Often, do bad thoughts come in, until my flesh is giving into its lusts. This is what I fear in life. I don't want to leave You Lord and do things that are sinful in Your sight. This really terrifies me and I would never want to intentionally have Your wrath fall upon me. Therefore, in the moments that I see my flesh giving into the temptations of the devil, is when I know I should call upon Your name for help. For I know that You see the dangers that we are in, at all times, and are ready to help us. You have helped me, time and time again, when I've asked that You take my thoughts captive, and I am so grateful. It is so much better when Your love replaces the impure thoughts in my mind. Thank You for not hanging that over my head, but having mercy upon me instead. You are my God and my desires are to always have You near me. Even until the end, will I seek You, Lord, because I love You more than this life. Amen.
