As a family of believers, there are amazing things that happen when we decide to follow Jesus.
Our sins are forgiven, we get into relationship with the Father we have the promise of heaven and we have the gift of the Holy Spirit. So today I thought I would talk to you about the Prince of peace, the God of love and that power of the Holy Spirit to endure whatever comes our way.
Think about it-what else do we need?
Discipleship is a lot easier than we think it is. Maybe you’ve been in church for a while, and you’ve never been trained nor told that you can and are called to make disciples. So often we just assume discipleship is for the church staff and pastors. But if you follow Jesus, you are called to make disciples right where you’re at.
We all have the qualities necessary to succeed. Then why are there so many people struggling to get ahead in life?
As believers, we know who God is. We know God is love, good, and kind. We hear it at church every Sunday. We are reminded during the difficult seasons by our friends. If we grew up in the church, we heard is a lot as a kid. But has this knowledge of God’s goodness transferred from our head to our heart?
Did you ever spend too much time thinking or being frustrated, irritated, or bitter at someone for something they did or did not do? You spend hours then days then years focusing on someone that hurt your feelings.
As the disciples walked, talked, and hung with Jesus, He shared with them the promise of the Holy Spirit
As you develop that relationship, you can be confident that conversation back to you will be what is best for the situation at hand. The next time you spend time with someone you love, challenge yourself to spend that amount of time with the Lord. Remember He gave his only son Jesus to die for us, so we can have an eternal relationship with Him. Start now by letting Him know how much we love Him. It’s just a conversation a better way to pray!
Today I’ll share with you how to go from “under the circumstances” to taking authority over them. We all have times when we look at the circumstances and they seem overwhelming. What should we do at these times?
Unfortunately many of the tracks that we choose to step on lead to destruction, unhappiness, boredom, or a feeling of a void. There are so many tracks to choose from that sometimes we forget what Jesus told us to do- “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” Matthew 6:33. As we get on the right track we may ask ourselves, can I endure this till the end?
When Jesus called you out, He set a plan in motion to redeem, restore, and transform your entire life. He also put plans in place to use you for His glory- to be a part of His mission in reconciling the world back to His heart. If you are struggling today, wondering if God sees you or hears you- please take heart- He has NOT forgotten about you. Keep seeking Him with your whole heart. His plans will be laid out for you in the perfect way and time.
