Lord, I love and honor You above all else. There is no other person or thing that I would rather give my allegiance to, but to You alone, God. I trust in You, Lord, and not in what the world offers me. There are enough fake things and people that say they bring love, but really they only offer guilt and shame in the end. Therefore, I am done with all the lies of Satan and His temptations. Though my sins have been heavy for too many years of my life, I am happy now, since You have forgiven me and took away all my burdens. What a gracious God You are. I confess that You are the Son of God, Jesus. You came in the flesh and died for our sins, of which we were unable. Thank You for paying the penalty for our sins on the cross. I am also so grateful that You came into the world willingly, in order to save us from our sins. You knew that it would mean being killed and tortured, but You did it anyways because of Your great for us all. Surely, the Father loves us so much as to send His only begotten son to earth. I love You, God. All I want in life is more of You and less me. Lead me on the righteous path which leads to heaven. Help me be a light unto the gentiles, that more people will be saved in Your kingdom. Also, help me love others as You love them. I love Your Words in the Bible and I pray that they will be in my heart at all times. Then will I be ready to bear witness when You need me. Thank You, God, for everything. I praise and glorify Your Name. Amen.
1 John 4:15-17 (KJV)
15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
If you want true love in your life, then look no further than Jesus. He can do for you that no other person can.
When to comes to love, John said, “we love him, because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19) And because He loves us, the greatest joy of all is able to enter our lives and then change our outlook on life and things. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I am so grateful to know You and to think of You during the year and this special season. Your birth is so important to me and to Christians alike, and to honor You at this time is a great honor and privilege that we have. Because You came down to earth and paid the price for our sins, we are forgiven. You have ushered into this world salvation, because of Your grace and mercy. We may be unworthy at the time that we come unto You, but You hear our confessions and cleanse us from within. And though we may not have been able to walk and think differently about things before, You have now given us a clear mind and new eyes to see. Even temptation is not such an issue as in the past, for Your presence is with us always. We are not alone, for You give us armor to defeat the enemy in his tracts. He may try us and trick us into thinking that things are good on the other side, but I know that it is only wickedness, which never brings happiness in the end. Surely, if we want joy in this life, it can only be found in You, Jesus. You are our God, who brings good things in our lives. Even when we are down and affected by trials, sickness, and sadness, Your peace changes the atmosphere, that we may be able to bear the situation we are in. There will always be hardships in this life, but You make everything better. Thank You, Lord. I love You. I give You the glory and praise this day and forever. Amen.
Isaiah 7:10-14 (KJV)
10 Moreover the Lord spake again unto Ahaz, saying,
11 Ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.
12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the Lord.
13 And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
No birth is more important than Jesus's. Because He was born, there is forgiveness of sins. He has come to save us all.
In Isaiah, chapter 7, we learned that a baby would be born of a virgin, of which His Name would be called Immanuel. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I am so blessed to know You and to pray to You now. Thank You for being there, even right by my side, to hold me and to bring me into Your presence. I can feel Your abundance of love and light all around me. Thank You, God. Oh, how I love You. Every time You take me in and put Your arms around me, I know that I am the luckiest person to be alive. Why is this? Because I am free. God, because You love me so much and never want me to fall, I am able to walk differently. Things I never thought I could do, I am able to do now, because You are there right with me. Yes, Lord, You have given me freedom from my sins, that I might experience what true joy and happiness is all about. I don't have to worry about different sins, bad habits, and addictions wrecking my life, for You are my shield. Surely, the enemy will never prevail as long as You are for me. Lord, You have done great things in my life and I give You all the praise and glory because of it. If I have become a witness for You, while on earth, I am honored to be one. Because the Holy Spirit is in me, my heart breaks to see so many people in the world that are lost and are in need. Therefore, it is the least I can do to share the gospel with them and to help any person that has a need. And because I know that You hear our prayers, to pray with them is the least I can do, for your healing is for me and everyone that has faith. I love You, Lord. You are my greatest delight. All I desire is to lead people to You and to be with You forever. Amen.
2 Corinthians 5:19-21 (KJV)
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
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.
Don't be afraid to tell others about Jesus. God's elect are called to share the gospel to those that are lost.
Evangelism is a gift of the Holy Spirit, of which showcases our true love towards God and our fellow man. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I am so grateful that You did come, as prophesied of. You fulfilled the promises to Your people and to all the earth, because You came to save us from our sins. I am so blessed and honored to be a part of Your kingdom and to have You as my King. You are my counselor and ruler of all, of which I love and adore You. There is nothing I'd rather want more than to have you in my life always. Nothing can take Your place, for You are my guide and my Shepherd. You have given me eyes to see, that I may no longer be blinded to the evils of this world, but see them for what they are. I no longer wish to be defiled by such things that will only distance me from You. It is not worth it at all to find please in worldly lusts, while my conscience is seared. Your joy is not worth trading for. I'd rather be filled with Your love, then to have all the riches in this world. Surely, money cannot buy happiness, but only what You can do for our lives. Then are we truly happy. Your peace is what comforts me and helps me cope with deaths in the family, illness and other trials. And especially Lord, since You died for our sins on the cross, I am regenerated through Your blood. You have taken a wretch like me and given me a new life. Now I am forgiven and can live a life of righteousness with the Holy Spirit as my guide. Thank You for Your mercy and grace. I am alive because You are with me. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Micah 5:2-4 (KJV)
2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
3 Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
4 And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.
Jesus was born in Bethlehem, as was prophesied by Micah. He has come in order to save His people and all the earth from their sins.
The prophesy of Jesus and His coming into the world is amazing in every detail of it. However, it is that much better, since it was fulfilled with His birth. Continue Reading
