TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE

To everything there  is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what  is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace. I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him. That which is has already been, And what is to be has already been; And God requires an account of what is past. I said in my heart, “God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, For there  is a time there for every purpose and for every work.”(Ecclesiastes 3:1‭-‬8‭, ‬14‭-‬15‭, ‬17 NKJV).

“So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom. Return, O Lord ! How long? And have compassion on Your servants. Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days! Make us glad according to the days in  which You have afflicted us, The years in  which we have seen evil. Let Your work appear to Your servants, And Your glory to their children. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands”. (Psalms 90:12‭-‬17 NKJV).

“ Lord , make me to know my end, And what is the measure of my days, That I may know how frail I am. Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my age is as nothing before You; Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. Selah”(Psalms 39:4‭-‬5 NKJV).
LISTEN  

“But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let  him  speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let  him  do  it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are  you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters. Yet if anyone  suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter. For the time has  come  for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it  begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?” Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to  Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator”.(1  Peter 4:7‭-‬19 NKJV).

“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was  it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was  it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief”.(Hebrews 3:12‭-‬19 NKJV).

VALENTINE  DIDN’T  DIE FOR THE WORLD. JESUS  DID,SO GIVE HIM YOUR HEART  AND IT WILL NEVER BE BROKEN  AGAIN . 

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”(John 3:16‭-‬21 NKJV).

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to  be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also”. (1 John 4:7‭-‬11‭, ‬17‭-‬21 NKJV).

FINALLY

“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: “TODAY, IF  YOU  WILL  HEAR  HIS  VOICE, DO  NOT  HARDEN  YOUR  HEARTS  as in the rebellion.” For who, having heard, rebelled?

MAKE A DECISION  

“Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. For we have  spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.  They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let  him  speak as the oracles of God.

(1 Peter 4:1‭-‬19 NKJV).

GOD LOOKS ONLY AT YOUR HEART

“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”(1 Samuel 16:7 NKJV).

“Do you look at things according to the outward appearance? If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ’s, let him again consider this in himself, that just as he is Christ’s, even so we are Christ’s”.(2 Corinthians 10:7 NKJV).

“He raised us up together with Him…that in the ages to come He might [clearly] show the immeasurable and unsurpassed riches of His grace…”
Ephesians 2:6-7, AMP
We serve a God of unlimited grace, favor and blessing! He longs to show you His goodness and pour out His abundance in your life.
When God sees you, He sees unlimited possibility. He sees unlimited potential. He sees unlimited resources. It’s God’s grace and favor in your life that enables you to become what He sees. But first, you have to open your heart and take the limits off!
How do we limit God? In Mark chapter 6, it says that Jesus could do no mighty works in a particular town because of the unbelief of the people. It works the same way today. We limit God in our thinking with thoughts of doubt and unbelief. We limit God with unforgiveness which closes the door of our hearts. But when you choose to forgive, when you choose thoughts of faith and expectancy, you open the door for God to work in your life. You are giving Him the opportunity to multiply what you have in your hand. Today, choose faith, choose forgiveness, and choose to take the limits off!
Let’s pray:
“Almighty Father God in the name of Jesus through the Holy Spirit, Hallowed be your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as is in Heaven, I choose faith and forgiveness! I choose Your unlimited grace and favor. I choose to believe that You have good things in store for me. You use me for Your glory in Jesus’ name I do pray and declare it all. Blessed are we and blessed we will always be and to our Lord Jesus Christ be all the Glory. Amen”
Praise the Lord as we pray for one another
Your brother in Christ Ricky

JESUS MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The enemy wants you to live in fear. The Lord wants you to keep the faith. I pray that no matter what you are going through, regardless of the ordeal, you continue to place all of your trust and faith in God. Don’t take matters into your own hands. Don’t try to repair the situation all by yourself. Let Him direct you on what to do and allow Him to oversee the situation. No one can fix it the way Jesus can.

1 John 5:14-15
14 And this is the CONFIDENCE that we have in him, that, if we ask anything ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, HE hears us:
15 And if we know that HE hears us, whatsoever we ask (ACCORDING TO HIS WILL), we know that we have the requests (or petitions) that we desired of him.
+All things ACCORDING TO GOD’S WILL are ALL His promises that are written in His Word.
+Remember God’s WILL for us is Salvation, Deliverance, Healing, Prosperity of our souls, Good Success, Protection, Provision and the list goes on.
+For an inexhaustible list of THINGS ACCORDING TO HIS WILL you may consult with your Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
+Find God’s promises that meet your needs and proclaim and declare those promises of God in your life.
+You shall have what you say and it shall be unto you according to your faith. Amen! And Hallelujah!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

WEAPONS

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. FOR  THE  WEAPONS  OF   OUR  WARFARE  ARE  NOT  CANAL  BUT  MIGHTY  IN  GOD  FOR  PULLING  DOWN  STRONGHOLDS, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled”. (2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 NKJV).

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—”. (Ephesians 6:10‭-‬18 NKJV).

THE PATH

…READ THIS NICE STORY…
…….YOU WILL LOVE IT……
I went to Genesis Hotels through
Exodus road. On the way, i saw
Leviticus recording the Numbers
of
people at Deuteronomy, while
Joshua was waiting at the beautiful
gate for Judges to see Ruth
calling
loudly “Samuel,Samuel”.
At a stage, the, first and second
Kings of Chronicles were coming to
visit Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther
for
the misfortune of Job their
brother.
Then they noticed that Mr. Psalms
was teaching his children
Proverbs
concerning Ecclesiastes and
Songs
of Solomon. This coincided with the
period
that
Isaiah and Jeremiah were
engaged
in Lamentation for Ezekiel and
Daniel their friend. By that time, Amos
and Obadiah were not
around.
Three days later, Hosea, Joel and
Jonah traveled in the same ship
with Micah and Nahum to
Jerusalem . Habakkuk then visited
Zephaniah
who introduced him to Haggai a
friend of Zechariah whose cousin
is
Malachi.
Immediately after the old tradition,
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
got
involved in Acts with the
Romans
who were behaving like the Corinthians,
who were also
always
at loggerhead with the Galatians.
At
that time too, the Ephesians
realizing that the Philippians were
close to the Colossians,
suggested
to the Thessalonians that they
should first of all see Timothy
who had gone to the house of Titus to
teach Philemon his younger
brother
how to read and write in
Hebrew. On
hearing this, James asked Peter to
explain to him how the three
Johns
have disclosed to Jude the
Revelation of my journey.

REMEMBER  

“There is a way that  seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death”. (Proverbs 14:12 NKJV).

“The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, And adds learning to his lips. Pleasant words are  like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. There is a way that  seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death”. (Proverbs 16:23‭-‬25 NKJV).

“The Lord  is  my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; HE  LEADS  ME  IN  THE  PATHS  OF  RIGHTEOUSNESS  FOR  HIS  NAME’S  SAKE”. (Psalms 23:1‭-‬3 NKJV).

FINALLY  

“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. Blessed are You, O Lord ! Teach me Your statutes. With my lips I have declared All the judgments of Your mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much  as in all riches. I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways. I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word. Deal bountifully with Your servant, That I may live and keep Your word. Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. I am a stranger in the earth; Do not hide Your commandments from me. Teach me, O Lord , the way of Your statutes, And I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, For I delight in it. Incline my heart to Your testimonies, And not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, And revive me in Your way. Establish Your word to Your servant, Who is  devoted to fearing You. Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, Because I keep Your precepts. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word. I have not departed from Your judgments, For You Yourself have taught me. How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path”. (Psalms 119:9‭-‬19‭, ‬33‭-‬38‭, ‬97‭-‬105 NKJV).
