A THANKFUL HEART

“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
I Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV)
Are you giving thanks in every circumstance? This might seem like a stretch at first, especially when you are going through a season of difficulty. But notice today’s verse doesn’t say to give thanks “for” everything, it says give thanks “in” everything. In other words, no matter what’s going on, find something to be thankful for. Don’t just focus on what’s wrong in your life; focus on what God will do in your life.
When you are thankful, it opens the door for God to move on your behalf. That’s why it says “this is God’s will for you.” He wants you to be close to Him to receive His strength and power by giving thanks. That’s why we should always have the attitude that says, “God, in spite of what’s happened, I choose to be grateful. I may be sick, but Father, thank You for being my healer. Thank you for giving me great friends and family.”

A Blessed and Wonderful Thanksgiving Day to you and your family.
+May the PRESENCE of our Lord be at your table and may He be your Honored Guest.
+ May your time with family and friends be graced with His Love, Joy, Peace, Unity and More…
Psalms 136:1
O GIVE THANKS unto the LORD; for he is GOOD…

2 Corinthians 2:14
Now THANKS be unto God, Who always causes us to triumph in Christ…

Ephesians 5:20
Giving THANKS always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…

1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give THANKS: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

+Happy Thanksgiving Day+

•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. 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!

JESUS  PAID THE PRICE

What is SIN?
Sin is…
-anything that is an offense to God.
-anything that displeases God.
-all unrighteous; to miss the mark; to err; to trespass.
-disobedience to God, His Word, His Will and His Purpose.
Romans 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Ezekiel 18:4
Behold, all souls are mine; …the soul that SINS, it shall die.
1John 1:9
If we confess our SINS, he is faithful and just to forgive us our SINS, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Hebrews 12:14
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
+Be determined to live free from SIN.
Philippians 2:13
For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
REMEMBER

The Redemptive Work of our Lord Jesus Christ

1. The Blood of Jesus deals with the sins of man.

(1John 1:7 AMP)

…the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].

Through the Blood of Jesus we are completely Redeemed. This means that we are Washed, Cleansed, Purged, Justified and Sanctified by the Blood of Jesus, and that we overcame by the Blood of the Lamb of God (the Lord Jesus Christ) and by the word of our testimony. Alleluia!

2. The Cross of Jesus deals with the man himself.

(Gal 2:20 NIV)

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in this body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Through the Cross of Christ when we got saved we were Crucified with Him, Buried with Him, Risen from the dead with Him and now in Ephesians 2:6 God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.

And in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
2 Peter 2:3

My 🙏🏽 Prayer…
O Lord, I beseech you mercifully to hear my prayers, and the prayers of all your people who call upon you; and grant that we may both perceive and know what things we ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfill them; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God.
Gracious God, our sins are too heavy to carry, too real to hide, and too deep to undo. Forgive what our lips tremble to name, what our hearts can no longer bear, and what has become for us a consuming fire of judgment. Set us free from a past that we cannot change; open to us a future in which we can be changed; and grant us grace to grow more and more in your likeness and image, through Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
I dedicate this day to you, mighty God. I pray that your Spirit will lift me up this day, and that your face may shine upon me all the day long, that I might do your will and lead a new life in Christ, reborn in the Spirit. In JESUS’S Mighty NAME.AMEN

In Christ we are seated next to our Heavenly Father on His Throne ruling and reigning with Him from now.

Blessed we are and blessed we will always be and to God be all the Glory. Amen!

HELLO YOU’RE STILL HERE

Make the decision and say, “I’m not letting that worry in. I’m done being upset when my plans don’t work out. I’m not letting that stress in.” Negative thoughts will still come to your mind, but you don’t have to let them into your spirit.

LISTEN :

Just do as the word says,”CAST DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD,AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST”{2 Corinthians 10:5}.

Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things”. [Philippians 4:4‭-‬8 KJV].

Heavenly Father, we come to You with open hearts. Extract anything that is not of You, and implant joy, kindness, peace, happiness, and LOVE. Pour into us wisdom, knowledge, power, and strength so we can make it from day to day.

Remind us to not fret. Help us to release the tight grip that we may have on fear and worry so we can FULLY rest in You. For those who are having difficulty sleeping at night because feelings of anxiety have overtaken them, we ask that You give them peace that surpasses all understanding. Lord, we thank You for Your kindness, Your mercy, and Your unfailing love. We humbly ask that You help us to be more like You each day, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

PRAY AND BELIEVE

We Demonstrate Our Faith By
Utilizing The Word Of God📖📖📖.

Here is a principle in believing.

“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, WHEN YE PRAY, BELIEVE that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses”.(Mark 11:22‭-‬26 KJV).

Psalms 119:105 says, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Romans 10:17 tells us that, faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways”.(James 1:5‭-‬8 KJV).
Lord, your way is perfect and your Word is tried; you are a mighty buckler to all who trust in you. It is your precious Word that brings faith to our heart and gives us the ability to trust you. Speak to us through the pages of the Scriptures and strengthen our faith. Your wonderful Word makes us wise unto salvation. May it always have free course in our life. Your Word is like the rain and the snow that come forth from heaven and do not return, unto you void. It will accomplish all that you please in our life.
Job 22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
We have not because we decree not
and speak not and act upon it. Every time we speak the Word Of God, we know without seeing something will happen. We know it without the use of our 5 physical senses. We use our tongue to ignite and encounter the power of God. We are living examples of the Word of God. The Word of God is God in motion. We must be more active with the things of God to receive from God. We do our part by speaking in faith and acting on it in by our faith. God will do His part. He never failed us yet.
We pray utilizing God’s Word ,and we will continually praying utilizing God’s Word in Jesus Name .

WHEN WE PRAY FOR OTHERS , GOD WILL ANSWER OUR PRAYERS QUICKLY.

How Often Do We Pray For One Another?
+Do we pray more for things than we pray for one another?
+Do we wait for others to call us with a problem before we pray for them?
James 5:16
Confess your faults one to another, and PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER, THAT ALL OF YOU MAY BE HEALED. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
EMPHASIS:
A. PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER…
B. THAT ALL OF YOU MAY BE HEALED… (Please note that we also receive HEALING when we pray for one another).
Luke 18:1 (Jesus said)
…that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
+I am praying for you and thank you for praying for me.
•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 we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!!!

GOD SEES YOU

Proverb 15:3

The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Hebrews 4:13

…but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him (God) with whom we have to do.

-There is nothing that is done in darkness that will not be brought to the light.

-There is an appointed time when the truth of all things will be revealed.

-Some of us are tormented by wrongdoings TO others and wrongdoings BY others and we do not want anyone to know, but God knows.

-Things like these are ruining people’s lives, breaking them down mentally, physically, emotionally, making them sick and some sick to the point of death.

-Where do we go from here?

-How can things get better?

-Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the life. He is the ONLY Person that can permanently resolve all of our problems. Go to Jesus with it.

-There is no condemnation for us who are in Christ Jesus. For who the Son sets free is free indeed.

Stay on FIRE for God. Seek Him, and He will help you get through those FIERY trials. Praying continuously, In all prayers, and supplication.

Studying and meditating on His Word constantly (See Ephesians 6:10-18), submitting yourself TO, and humbling yourself BEFORE the Lord (See 1 Peter 5:6-10), allowing God to order your steps, walking in faith and not operating in fear, saying “yes” to God and “no” to the devil

– This is how we are going to make it in this journey we call life. Obviously, we should do these things simply, because, God loves us, and we love Him. Plus it’s expected of us. However, it is important we realize that doing what is mentioned above helps us to draw nearer to Christ, and as we draw close to Him, then we are not easily moved. Aim to become even closer to God. ABIDE in the Lord, for He is where your strength lies.

Trust and believe that God’s got you.

+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

BE ROOTED

But his delight is in the law of the Lord , And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
[ Psalms 1:2-6 ]

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord , and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7‭-‬8 KJV).

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. [Ephesians 3:16‭-‬21 KJV].

TRUST AND OBEY

TRUSTING AND OBEYING THE LORD
Trust is…
to be Confident in the Lord.
to be Sure in the Lord in the Lord.
to be Secure in the Lord.
to be Bold in the Lord.
Psalm 37:3-5
3 TRUST in the Lord, and do good…
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord ; and he shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your ways unto the Lord ; TRUST also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
+Remember TRUSTING in the Lord is also knowing by faith that your situation is taken care of by the Lord even before the manifestation of it. Amen!

So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord ? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord , He also has rejected you from being king.”(1 Samuel 15:22‭-‬23).

WHEN YOU TRUST GOD. YOU KNOW THAT.

Sometimes a set back in a very strange way; becomes a set UP for new blessings and opportunities to come…

For ever level there’s another devil….. You are supposed to give up, you are supposed to get weak and discouraged – but you can’t – are you listening YOU CANT QUIT!!!

Power down, then power UP, hit that refresh button, and KEEP GOING!!!!!!!!! You will continue to GROW through what you GO through…..

Remember,every disappointment is for a good,to them that love God. We may not see the good now,but look for it ,it’s coming,you will be the head and not the tail,you will be a lender,and not a borrower,above all,you will have peace that surpasses all understanding,just trust God. He is on the case.

HERE IS THE TRUTH 

Understanding TRUTH
+All TRUTH originated with God.
+TRUTH is always absolute and pure.
2 Corinthians 13:8 says:
For we can do nothing against the TRUTH, but for the TRUTH.
+All TRUTH can be confrontational.
+We must face and accept the TRUTH before we can stand for the TRUTH and live in the TRUTH.

However, John 17:17 tells us that, God’s WORD is TRUTH.

Matthew 4:4 suggest that; we must live by every Word of God. Meaning we live a life of TRUTH.
Then John 14:6 informs us that,JESUS IS THE Person of TRUTH (Truth Personified).

+The Truth will always come out. No point hiding it, burying it, covering it up.
+Jesus as Truth was buried as a way to get rig of (Him) the Truth, but Truth buried will always rise again.
+When Jesus the Truth was risen from the dead, and the Romans soldiers were told to say that His Disciples stole His body, but Jesus made sure that after he was risen He was seen of over FIVE HUNDRED brethren at once,

1Corinthians 15:6.
+In Christ Jesus we are TRUTH just like He is TRUTH. Live IN the TRUTH because TRUTH is POWERFUL, and no one can do nothing against the TRUTH but for the TRUTH.

+We can only stand for the Truth out of Conviction in our hearts.
+Conviction meaning we uncompromisingly stand for the Truth.
+In order for us to stand for TRUTH we must realize that we do it out of Love and Obedience and for the Glory of God.

+If standing for the TRUTH will cost us our lives, are we willing to lay our lives down for the Truth?
+John 14:6 Jesus is the Person of Truth.
+John 16:13 the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth.

+2 Timothy 2:15 the Word of God is also the the Word of Truth.
+To deny the TRUTH is to deny God, and if we deny Him He will deny us, Matt 10:33.
+Always stand for the Truth you know and never deny it. Amen!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. 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!
