Test All Spirits

Posted 2/3/2019

The Bible teaches us to test all spirits and to set our minds on things above. The Bible also says that the mind governed by the flesh is death. As such we should cast down vain imaginations and other thoughts that are not Godly. We have to be careful not to open ourselves up to demonic attack by giving Satan the legal right to attack us through any unconfessed sin. Sin comes from our hearts into our minds and then is often acted out. Jesus taught us that even thinking about evil is sin. The Bible also teaches us that our battle is not against people but against spiritual wickedness. Entertaining evil thoughts is dangerous as the enemy is constantly looking for opportunities to introduce sin into our lives through every kind of temptation. Confess any known sin today asking the Lord to forgive you and to give to you a clean heart and mind. The Bible teaches us that God will forgive us of our sins if we confess our sins. We have an advocate with the Father, Christ Jesus. When we confess our sins we take away Satan's legal right to attack us through that sin but we still remain subject to any human consequences. We should note that the Scripture copied below is for Christians.

11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. (Romans 13:11-14)

Scripture Reference - 1 John 4:1, Colossians 3:2, Ephesians 6:12, Romans 8:6, 1 John 1:9, Romans 13:11-14

Prayer - Heavenly Father please forgive me of my sins and failings. Father I trust Your Word that you will forgive me of my sins because Jesus paid my debt on the cross. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Be Encouraged

Posted 1/19/2019

The Bible teaches us that we should encourage one another. In spite of the challenges we are facing now or the pain we have suffered in the past we need to be encouraged realizing that we are a blessed people. Those who know Christ as their personal savior are highly valued. Jesus loves us and He tells us to take heart because He has overcome the world. So whatever you are going through today I want to encourage you and remind you that you are dearly loved and Jesus cares for each of us more than we can ever know. Take a minute today and encourage someone. Let them know that they are valued and loved by the Son of the Most High, our God, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Scripture Reference - 1 Thessalonians 4:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Psalms 10:17, Hebrews 3:13, 2 Corinthians 13:11, John 16:33

Prayer - Heavenly Father thank you for valuing me so much that you sent your Son Jesus who willingly suffered on the cross so that I can enjoy your presence forever in eternity through my faith in Him. Thank you for letting all Christians know through Your Word that we can take comfort knowing that your love for us is unconditional, that you value us, care for us, and You are with us always. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Who is Worthy?

Posted 1/13/2019

Jesus is exclusively worthy! John wrote the following about his vision of heaven.

“Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.””
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭5:1-5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Jesus is each Christian’s kinsman-redeemer who came down from heaven and took upon Himself our humanity. He is the only one worthy to break the seal and open the scroll. He is the only one able to buy back what Adam lost. Jesus is the only one worthy to bring redemption to those who will believe and trust in Him as their personal Savior. Praise God! Worthy is the Lamb, Jesus Christ our Lord!

Scripture Reference - Revelation 5:1-5, Revelation 5:12

Prayer - Heavenly Father I praise Jesus as my kinsman-redeemer the only one worthy to pay my sin debt, to free me from the slavery of sin and an eternity with Satan. Thank you Jesus I praise and thank you! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Your Table

Posted 6/16/2018

You never know who or what God is going to bring to your table and it is usually not what you plan for or expect. The Bible teaches that all blessings come from God and we should give thanks to God in all circumstances even if the situation does not initially seem positive. Sometimes it is later until you see that a situation was actually a blessing. It is a blessing to be on the receiving end of God’s blessing but it is also a blessing to be the one asked by God to deliver His blessing to another. We should seek to understand how God is working in these circumstances as receiving an unexpected blessing is not a coincidence and being prompted by the Holy Spirit to be the one to deliver it is not a coincidence either.

Scripture Reference -James 1:17, Philippians 2:13, Ephesians 5:20, Romans 8:28

Prayer - Heavenly Father thank you for the many blessings that you bring to me daily. I also thank you for using me as your vessel to to bring Your blessing to another person. Help me to understand your purpose in these circumstances if that is Your will. I give you all the glory. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Life Seasons

Posted 6/14/2018

The times we spend with the people we love are the most cherished in life. They are the times we remember, look back on and sometimes long to return. Life is ever changing like the seasons. Some days are warm and lovely while other days are cold and gloomy. Thank God that the seasons do change and that the cold days of winter turn to lovely warm days to remember.

Prayer - Heavenly Father thank you for all of the fond memories and always being there with me through the difficult times. Thank you for the encouragement that is in your Word and for the people you have placed in my life that love me and for the people that you have put in my life to love. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Scripture Reference: Romans 8:28, 2 Corinthians 9:8, Psalms 34:18
