HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT

Sometimes it takes drastic circumstances or measures to get our undivided attention. Why must we lose a love one, our jobs, possessions, or get sick, before we turn to God. The sad thing about it, is that’s the time, when we are exposed, and most vulnerable, thus allowing us to do, and accept things, we will regret later on in life. But I must tell you, that is the time when God is waiting with open arms to receive us. He tells us, ”His grace is sufficient for us; because His strength is made perfect in our weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). We should never allow, our circumstances to dictate how we think, or behave. Because, it is then we make the biggest mistakes of our lives. Normally, this is the best time to seek God (Matthew 6:33), and acknowledge Him, so that He can direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Please don’t accept, and receive Gods word in some areas of your life, and don’t apply it, when you need it the most. ‘Gods word should always be a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path'(Psalms 119:105). Gods word is the best weapon, that exists to combat the enemies, of our thoughts, doubts, fears, evils, mediocrity, and low self-esteem. Allow the word of God to speak life into your circumstances. Lets start with,”many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivered him out of them all”(Psalms 34:19),God says,”His plans for us, is to prosper, and not harm us, to give us hope, and a future (Jeremiah 29:11), we are more than conquerors, because He loves us (Romans 8:37), when all else fails, there is only one alternative, and He is God, follow the professionals in the Bible, who have been there, and done that.

One of my favorites was David, he had a tumultuous life, troubles, defeat, failures, and disappointments, but he was still blessed, and highly favored. Check it out for your self, he wrote most, if not all the Psalms, listen to this one, “I was young, and now I am old; but I have never seen the righteous forsaken; nor his seed begging bread” (Psalms 37:25). All through the Psalms, he beged, cried, prayed, and God always helped him. Because, David always praised, thanked, and sang to Him (God). Listen to what David said, “I will praise the Lord at all times; His praises shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1), “but I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more, my mouth shall tell of your righteousness, and your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits”(Psalms 71:14 -15). When God helps you, are you hiding it? It’s no secret what God can do. Are you taking all the credit for yourself, telling people, how educated you are, or how pretty you are, that’s why you are where you are, you better stop that. Please folks allow God to supply your needs, according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus(Philippians 4:19), and let the world knows.

Beloved, God has sent His only begotten son, into the world, as payment for our sins, if you believe, and accept Him (John 3:16; John 6:40). I don’t care what anyone says, Jesus is the only way to God, John 14:6 says so.

I implore you, to taste and see that the Lord is good, and blessed are the people who trust in Him (Psalm 34:8, and 119:103), if you have never met Jesus, let me introduce you to Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best decision, and choice you ever make. I give God the glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me to deliver, his message to His people, I hope it blessed you, as it did me, I pray that He will keep you, and guide you, to obey His will, and travel down His paths in Jesus Name, amen.

CONFIDENCE IS BUILT

Confidence in yourself and confidence in God is totally different, because self confidence is denying the existence and presence of God’s help;when Jesus tells us in John 15:5 that without Him you can do nothing. When God delivers you out of and from a trial or tribulation it boost your confidence in Him,and you can boast like David ,and boldly declare” Many are the afflictions of the righteous;but the Lord delivers him out of them all “{Psalms 34:19}. However, if you think or believe that God never did anything for you,then you have flushed your confidence down the toilet, along with your hope,trust,and faith in God,who never fails,and who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think…, as Ephesians 3:20 tells us.

“And this is the confidence that we have in Him,that,if we ask anything according to His will,He heareth us,and if we know that He hear us,whatever we ask,we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him”{1John 5:14-15}.
Confidence is something you build, the more success you have, the greater your level of confidence, and the greater your level of confidence the more faith you develop,the more faith you develop the greater your trust in God,the greater your trust in God the higher your hopes are. Confidence then is belief, faith, hope and trust in the God of the universe who owns and controls everything. Therefore if you put your trust and confidence in man instead of God, you are guaranteed to fail. Psalm 118:8 tell us that, “It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man,” neither should you put your confidence, hope, trust or faith  in your job, education, or anyone but God, that is why Proverbs 3:26 tells us that the Lord should be our confidence.

Most of us face different kinds of trials, tribulation, and temptations daily, however, as Christians we have confidence and trust in God, who is able to keep us from falling ,and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy (Jude 24). We should also remember that 1 Corinthians 10:13 also tells us that, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; But God is faithful, who will not permit you to be tempted above that ye are able, but will with the temptation, also make the way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” So there is no excuse not to be confident, because God does not lie, and it is impossible for Him to lie according to Numbers 23:19 and Hebrews 6:18. Furthermore He is not slack concerning His promises, 2 Peter 3:9 confirms that.

Is your confidence shaken, because of a lack of trust, faith and hope or is it because of unbelief in the God who owns and controls the universe. How many times does God have to tell us to cast our burdens and cares upon Him? Allow me to share a few with you, Psalms 55:22 says, “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee; He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” and  1 Peter 5:7  says, “Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.” There it is confirmation from the old testament and the other from the new testament. Now what is your excuse? God promised us a Messiah and sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). He promised never to leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). He  promised us a comforter and sent the Holy spirit (John 14:16-26). So why do you lack confidence?

Do not allow your confidence, faith, hope and trust to diminish, instead allow your fears and doubts to decrease. Fear is a spirit that is not of God, in 2 Timothy 1:7, we read, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Don’t allow the enemy to take your confidence, God is your refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1;Psalm 91:2). The Bible is your confidence booster it reminds you of all of God’s promises, and           2 Corinthians 1:20 tells us that all His promises are yea and amen, so take advantage of this opportunity while you are alive to do it. Go to the top of this blog, read through the steps in leading someone to Christ then pray the salvation prayer.

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 only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

MONEY TALK OR IN GOD WE TRUST

The United States currency says “In God we trust”, yet most people trust in the money instead of trusting in God. They are so caught up with, and consumed with the mighty dollar, than with the Almighty God, who opens their eyes to see the money, and provides the resources to make the money, like the trees, paper, people and ink to name a few. Unfortunately, this is a world-wide problem. Many people like to say money is power, failing to realize that it does not have power because it can’t talk to you, save you from hell, or buy your way into heaven. In Matthew 19:24  Jesus reminds us that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Why? Because they are so consumed with getting and counting money that they forget about God, who made it possible for them to receive money.

There is nothing wrong with being rich, just as long as you don’t love it more than God or allow it to replace God. The love of money is the root of all evil. 1 Timothy 6:10 says it best, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Then in verse seventeen it tells us to tell those who are rich in this world, not to be proud, and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone; But their trust should be in the living God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment..and to do good. We must not allow money to  become our  master, because Matthew 6:13 reminds us that, “No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to one and despise the other, you cannot serve God and money (Mammon).”

For what profit is it to a man, if he gains the whole world and lose his soul (Luke 9:25) As Peter said in Acts 8:20, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money.” I wonder how many people in the world think that they can buy their way into heaven. Sorry to disappoint those of you who believe you can because you cannot purchase your way into heaven. Money doesn’t talk as some people might think, because it doesn’t speak God’s language or any other for that matter. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ His only begotten Son (John 14:6). So if you are interested go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and pray the salvation prayer. We can only trust in God and money does not talk it burns a hole in your pocket and leads you to  burn in hell. Choose Christ today. Money can neither walk or talk, IF IT COULD IT WILL TELL YOU  THAT YOU CAN’T BUY  GOD.

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 only wise God, our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

GODS WAY OR MAN

“FOR MY THOUGHTS, ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS, MY WAYS, SAITH 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 55:8-9). Be careful who you follow, and who you believe. If you are following God, you can’t go wrong. If you follow man you better be strong, because he or she will lead you to do wrong. Remember Jesus is the Way, Jesus is the Truth, and Jesus is the Life, no one goes to God without going through Him (John 14:6). Do you want to meet Him? Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. To God be the glory, praise, and thanks for using me to share His thoughts.
