NEW YEARS RESOLUTION

People love to make new years resolutions and before the month of January ends they break them, while others will stick it out until the summer. However, by the end of the year it’s all in the garbage or out the door. Steve Harvey said his grandmother or his mother always said, “If you want to make God laugh then tell Him your plans.” Which is true and Biblical, because Isaiah 55:8-9 says,”For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord.” If you read further, the verse talks about how the distance between our thoughts and God’s thoughts are not even close. Therefore, you better seek God and ask Him what is His new years resolution for you.

Most people fail to realize that God told us in Jeremiah 29:11,”For  I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord…” Do you know the plans He has for you? Is your new years resolutions your plans or His? Is it your will or His will? Are they your desires or His desires? How do you know what will happen tomorrow? So what are you planning? (Read James 4:13-17) Did you know that your steps are ordered by the Lord? It says so in Psalm 37:23, so you should be seeking His new years resolution for your life and not your hidden agenda, not your hidden plans, not your resolutions; don’t forget that your plans and ways are not like His, as I mentioned earlier. Your resolution should line up with God’s plans for you, which will be better than your own plans.

So this year don’t make your own resolutions for the new year, but seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, as it says in Matthew 6:33 and allow God to add the husband, the job, the house, the car, the dog and even the boat if it’s what your heart desires. Is there anything too hard for God (Jeremiah 32:27) or are you one of the folks Jesus was referring to when He said, “Oh ye of  little faith.”(Matthew 6:30)

No my friends this is not impossible, listen to what Matthew 19:26 says, “But Jesus looked at them and said to them,’With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” So lets trust God with our new years resolutions, because He is the only one who knows the future.

This new years allow God to make your resolutions, and seek Him for His will, and ways Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to, Trust in the Lord with all our heart; and don’t rely on our own understanding, but instead acknowledge Him in all our ways so that He can direct our paths. Proverbs 16:3-9, Psalm 37:23, and Jeremiah 10:23 and many more scriptures all point to God as the one who will direct us into the future. Do you know Him or want to know Him?

LIVE

Because Jesus lives I can face tomorrow. Because He lives I am more than a conqueror. Because He lives I have eternal life. Because He lives I am an overcomer. Because He lives He keeps me in perfect peace. Because He lives by His stripes I am healed. Because He lives I can resist the Devil and he has to flee. Because He lives I receive grace, mercies, favor and blessings everyday.

That’s why I live for Jesus because He LIVES!

Because Jesus lives I live. Because he lives I can sing. Because He lives I can rejoice, because He lives my weeping only endures for a night and joy comes in the morning. Because He lives I can love my enemies. Because He lives I can forgive those who use and abuse me. Because he lives I am free from sin.

Are you free from sin? Are you living because He lives? Take this opportunity and accept Him so you can live, because He lives.

A GOOD GIFT

This is the time of year when most gifts are given. Most of us like our gifts and some of us don’t, but I say, “It is the thought that counts.” God thinks you are worthy of a gift. God, years ago, considered us worthy of a gift, so He sent Jesus, His only begotten son, just to redeem us, so we could be called His children, and be entitled to all the other gifts He has for us. It’s sad when at this time of the year most people have not accepted the best gift of all, Jesus. It is when one accepts Jesus that they will have a right to God’s other gifts.

God said that, “No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly” Psalm 84:11. Are you walking uprightly, Holy and righteously so that God will give you good things? Most people fail to realize that God wants to give us the desires of our hearts, that’s why we need to read the Bible to know how to walk upright, and to know what we are entitled to as children of God who are walking in righteousness. As children of God do you know all the gifts you have received and are entitled to on a daily basis and not just once a year at Christmas.

However, I must inform you that your sins can and will stop God’s gifts from coming. Jeremiah 5:25 tells us “Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withheld good things from you.” God will not give you anything if you are going to give it to the devil, that’s why He sent Jesus, to take back everything the devil stole from us, and give it back to us,that’s why in Luke 10:19 He tells us,“Behold, I (Jesus) give unto you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Jesus is the reason for the season. Jesus came so that we can get back in right standing with God  and  receive the full benefits and privileges of the children of God. We have so many gifts as children of God some of us seem to forget. Like the gift of eternal life, we are entitled to the Abrahamic promises and all the promises written in the Bible, our citizenship is in heaven, and so much more. So you tell me, have you received the ultimate gifts from God already?  What gift could you receive this holiday that could top, what you already have from God?

If you haven’t received any of these gifts or you are not entitled to any you could change all that right now. Just go to the top of this blog ,click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. You will not get or be entitled to any of God’s gifts without first accepting His ultimate gift of His son Jesus Christ. Let me assure you God will not give you anything until you know who it’s coming from? Which is Him, and why you received it? because of His son Jesus Christ, and your obedience to remain faithful, Holy and righteous to Him. Give God the gift of your heart this Christmas, and you will get all the gifts He has in store for you.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to Him who is Immortal and invisible, the only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release this message to you in Jesus name, Amen.

JESUS OR SANTA CLAUS

Jesus is the real santa Claus, and He does not need a chimney, nor reindeer’s to take Him from place to place. His gifts are real and not perishable, plus we get it all year-long not just at Christmas time. His gifts are good and perfect. James 1:17 tells us that ,”Every good, and  every perfect gift is from above,and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” His gifts are not fake, and He always delivers, no matter the time of day or the weather conditions.

Another thing, Jesus does not lives in the North pole, but He lives anywhere and everywhere He chooses, because He is omnipresent. Parents it’s time to stop telling your children and grand-children about santa Claus. Let the children know who Jesus is and the best Christmas gift that we ever received from Him; was Him coming to give His life so that we could reconnect with God and have eternal life. Listen, God is the only one who supplies our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19 ), not santa Claus. Are you interested in knowing who Jesus is and what He has done for you?

Jesus is not a figment of our imagination, He is real. If you are interested in knowing Jesus, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Don’t stop there, find a church that believes in God and His son Jesus Christ so that you can develop, and be taught the Word of God. You must also read the Bible daily for information on the infallible and unadulterated word of God,ask God for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as you read His word, allow God to lead and guide you into all truth, and I pray that He will.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory, with exceeding joy; To the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only Wise God be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out to His children. May He give you the spiritual necessities to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying and act accordingly, in Jesus Name.Amen.

LOOKING BACK

Birthdays allow us the privilege of looking at where you have evolved from and what you have developed into. Most of us give God the glory, praise, and thanks while others attribute it to what they did or what some earthly person did. Some say it’s luck to live to see another birthday.Unfortunately most people give credit to everything and everyone except the one who can literally take your breath away and not just for a moment but forever. On my birthday I looked back and just had to thank God for the amount of times he saved my butt from death and destruction, so that I am alive to celebrate another day, much less a birthday (that’s my bonus).

Most people like to tell folks not to look back, but it’s what you are looking back at. Are you looking at how God brought you through or over the hump, or are you still in the hump trying to figure your way out? Are you looking at the faith you had to move the mountain and developing the confidence to do it again? Are you looking at the size of the mountain, or the God who made the mountain? The God who gave you His son(Jesus), who tells you that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, that you can move a mountain. Take a look back at Luke 17:19-20…

“Afterwards the disciple asked Jesus privately, ‘Why couldn’t we cast out the demons?’ You didn’t have enough faith, Jesus told them, I assure you, even if you had faith as small as a mustard seed, you could say to the mountain, ‘Move from here to there’, and it would move, nothing would be impossible.” So  what are you looking back at? The hurt and pain or the solution to the hurt and pain. Folks you have to look back in the Bible to see how Jesus and the others did it. Hebrews 11 gives you a summary of a few of them. If you are looking back, look back to gain strength, to encourage yourself, to know you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you(Philippians 4:13).

Looking back I can rejoice and give God the praise, glory, and thanks, for never leaving or forsaking me, for waking me up every morning to see another day and for keeping me in perfect peace, because I kept my mind on Him. Five decades later, I can say I survived because He kept me. So on December 12th, my birthday, He sent me this message from Romans 12:1-2 and Romans 12:12. To continue to present my body as a living sacrifice, Holy and acceptable unto God, which is a reasonable service; and not to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of my mind, so that I will be able to know what His good, acceptable and perfect will is for the rest of my life…

Then in Romans 12:12, it says that I should rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, and continue instant in prayer. That was God’s text message to me about my future when I look back at His word in the Bible. When was the last time you looked back in God’s word for a message He has for you? So how will you know what to do if you don’t look in His word? How will you know the things He did for you? How will you know who to follow or listen to? Take this opportunity and get to know God and His son (Jesus). Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.

Then don’t stop there, find a church that knows and follows the God of the universe through His son Jesus.May  God give you the wisdom, knowledge and understanding to make the right decisions and keep and guide you in all truth in Jesus name, Amen.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the Immortal, Invisible, the Only Wise God, be glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to inform His children that they should look back at Jesus’s examples and follow them because He gave us the victory and power over the enemy (Luke 10:19). Lets exercise it and evict the enemies of God out of our lives in Jesus name.Amen.
