WHY WORRY

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble”. (Matthew 6:25‭-‬34 NKJV).

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”. (Philippians 4:6‭-‬8 NKJV).

STAND  ON  THE  WORD  IN  FAITH. 

+Have you ever been in a situation where…

…you have given it your best and it seems as if your best was not good enough?

…you have given it your all and nothing changed?

+What the Lord said to Joshua in Joshua 1:9,  He is saying to us today:

“Have not I commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be you dismayed {to be broken down, confused, afraid and beat down}: for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go”

+Our circumstances does not change the Word of God. The Word of God and our Faith in the Word changes our circumstances. 

+Our God is FAITHFUL. 

•Contine 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!

ACTIVATE YOUR FAITH

You Have Great Faith
+The greatest faith anyone could ever have is faith to believe in and receive the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God for their personal Lord and Savior, and to also believe that He was born of a virgin, died on the cross, risen from the dead, ascended to Heaven and is coming back for His Church.
+In this great belief, trust, confidence and faith, you not only have salvation (eternal life), but you also have healing, deliverance, protection, prosperity and the list goes on.
+Many believers ONLY exercise FAITH in Christ for salvation (eternal life) and not for the healing, deliverance, protection and prosperity.
+When we received Christ in our hearts we received everything Christ did for us, and we became everything the Word of God says we are in Him.
+Yes, we received all His promises because all His promises are in Him yes and amen.
Rom 8:32
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with Him also freely give us ALL things?
THEREFORE  

Don’t Give Up On God, His Word, and His Promises. 

+Many of us have been waiting PATIENTLY for PROMISES of God to materialize or manifest in our lives, but why are the promises taking so long. 

+The promises of God are First Spiritual, and they are already given to us. 

Ephesians 1:3 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HAS BLESSED us with ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS in heavenly places in Christ: 

2 Peter 1:3 

According as his divine power hath given unto us ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 

+We MUST REALIZE that God has already given us His BLESSINGS. 

+By FAITH we must DECLARE that we have the BLESSINGS and thank Him for it. 

Job 22:28 

You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established for you…

Mark 11:23-24

…you shall have whatsoever you SAY…

•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!

THIS SAYS IT ALL

Lessons From Psalm 23 

Verse-1 THE LORD is my Shepherd I shall not want. 

+As our SHEPHERD the Lord Feeds us, Leads us, Guides us, Guards us Protects us, and Governs us. 

+SHALL NOT WANT means we shall not lack anything or be in need of anything. 

Philippians 4:19 

But my God shall SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEED according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

2 Peter 1:3 

According as his divine power has given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness…

Romans 8:32 

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also FREELY GIVE US ALL THINGS. 

+The LORD is my Shepherd I shall not want. 

Verse-2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters. 

+The Lord is our Shepherd which means we are His LAMBS and SHEEP. The Lord tends (cares for and look after) us with special attention like a Shepherd to His Lambs and Sheep. 

+He makes me to lie down in GREEN PASTURES means we are resting, thriving and flourishing in the care and presence of the Lord. 

+He LEADS me beside the STILL WATERS. The Lord gently guides us to the quiet waters similar to that which flows from the Throne of God in Revelation 22:1.  

+Heavenly Waters that refreshes, quenches and satisfies the thirsting of our souls. 

Verse-3)

+He RESTORES my SOUL: he leads me in the PATHS of RIGHTEOUSNESS for his NAME’S sake. 

+He RESTORES my SOUL. Based on John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10,  1 Corinthians 2:16, 1 Corinthians 6:17, and 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 We have been Reconciled and Reconnected to God our Heavenly Father by the Redemptive Work of Jesus and the Work of Holy Spirit. 

+In our hearts we are one with the Spirit of God which is the RESTORATION of our SOULS. 

+The PATHS of RIGHTEOUSNESS are the PATHS of Love, Truth, Holiness and Faith. 

+We are led by the Spirit of God in the PATHS of RIGHTEOUSNESS for His Name’s sake. 

+When we walk in the PATHS of RIGHTEOUSNESS we are preventing others from BLASPHEMING the  Name of our God. 

Verse-4)

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. 

+THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH  are things the enemy will use to make you fearful. Remember it’s just the shadow of death.  

+I will fear no evil because God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind, 2 Timothy 1:7.

+FOR YOU ARE WITH ME…

Hebrews 13:5 

…for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you. 

Matthew 28:20

…I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 

+YOUR ROD AND YOUR STAFF THEY COMFORT ME.

+ROD represents God’s Authority and Power. 

+STAFF is all the sources of God’s Support for us. 

+God Comforts is with His Love, Joy and Peace in the Holy Spirit who is our Comforter, John 14:26.

Verse-5)

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. 

+God sees to it that our enemies know that He is our God and that He as our God provides for us even before the very presence of our enemies. 

+Anoint our heads with oil symbolizes that we are anointed with the Holy Spirit in Like fashion as Jesus our Lord was. 

+Our cups run over. The CUP represents our lives filled to the overflowing with the MORE ABUNDANT LIFE OF GOD in John 10:10. 

•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!

Building Prayer life from God’s point of view! It’s REHAB time we got work to do. Let’s pray for each other .

WHEN IT’S TIME TO PRAY,you must

Relax your mind and humble your heart to focus on Christ. Allow God to be the only person on your mind while you read this prayer. If we can take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc., we should give the same respect to this prayer. Friends, who pray together, stay together.
If you pray this prayer, change the number.

Dear Lord, I thank you for this day. I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning.. I’m blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness.

Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of God.

And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus’ example — to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It’s the best response when I’m pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I can’t pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will.

Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others… Keep me strong that I may help the weak.. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way. I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don’t know You intimately. I pray for those who will delete this without sharing it with others. I pray for those who don’t believe.. But I thank you that I believe.

I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly..

This is my prayer.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen.

THE DEVIL  IS A THIEF,WHO STEALS EVERYTHING,LIKE YOUR JOY,PEACE ,ETC.

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.  But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.  The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.  I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.  As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.  And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.  No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.” My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.  I and My Father are one.”(John 10:10‭-‬18‭, ‬27‭-‬30 NKJV).

THEREFORE  

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.  To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever”. Amen.(1 Peter 5:8‭-‬11 NKJV).

WHO ARE YOU SEEKING ?

Who do we seek to PLEASE?

+Forget about the devil. He is not included. Do we seek to please others, ourselves or God?

+In other words, do we live for others, ourselves or for God?

“Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble”. (Matthew 6:30‭-‬34 NKJV).

“Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord , And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord . “For  as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts”. (Isaiah 55:6‭-‬9 NKJV).

Colossians 3:23 says:

And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. 

+In everything we THINK, SAY and DO for others, it must always be  AS UNTO THE LORD. 

+In other words if it is NOT THE WILL of God we are not to THINK it, SAY it or DO it. 

+How we treat others reflects our Love for God.  

+In John 13:34-35 

Jesus gave us a New Commandment to Love one another LIKE He Loves us and by this we are know as His Disciples. 

+Who do we seek to PLEASE? We please the Lord in all things. Hallelujah!!!

•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!

WEEPING  ONLY ENDURES FOR A NIGHT

“For His anger is  but  for a moment, His favor is  for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be moved.” Lord , by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled. I cried out to You, O Lord ; And to the Lord I made supplication: “What profit is  there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? Hear, O Lord , and have mercy on me; Lord , be my helper!” You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever”. (Psalms 30:5‭-‬12 NKJV).

“The eyes of the Lord  are on the righteous, And His ears are  open to their cry. The face of the Lord  is against those who do evil, To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The  righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord  is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked, And those who hate the righteous shall be condemned. The Lord  redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned”. (Psalms 34:15‭-‬22 NKJV).

“Thus says the Lord : “Refrain your voice from weeping, And your eyes from tears; For your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord , And they shall come back from the land of the enemy. There is hope in your future, says the Lord , That your children shall come back to their own border”.(Jeremiah 31:16‭-‬17 NKJV).

“He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For the Lord has spoken”. (Isaiah 25:8 NKJV).

IN CONCLUSION , THEORY POINT IS:

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”(Revelation 21:4‭-‬8 NKJV).
