Storms in Life

Image result for picture of storms

In the midst of the storm, there generally is a way of escape. The question is will you take the escape route or it is meant for you to ride the storm out? Some storms of life we put ourselves into and some storms of life are not expected.  That is just called life. Things happen.

In the Book of Matthew Chapter 8:23-27 verses it tells a story how the disciples and Jesus were in ship at sea and a strong wind came and the disciples thought they were going to die.

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. 24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. 26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Jesus spoke to storm by rebuking the winds and the sea.  That same spirit of Christ is in you and I. What ever situation you are in today, believe God that you have the faith to ride it out. If you need a way of escape, believe God for direction and He will see you thorough.

Peace!

Overwhelmed With Tasks

1 Thess 5.18

Do you ever feel overwhelmed at work ? Do ever feel like everything is being handed to you at once to be completed as soon as possible?

Know that if you were not competent and dependable, you would not be asked to do the task. You have been put in this place because of your character and the trust that you have earned with others.  So instead of thinking of the task(s) given as a burden or too much, look at it as a stepping stone to your next level of promotion.  Then thank God that He has selected you for this purpose.

Be Blessed!

Acts: 13:44-48 King James Version (KJV)  44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming. 46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. 48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.

In our scripture text, we see Paul and Barnabas brought the good news to the Jews 1st and they did not believe. The Lord gave a way for the people who are not Jews, a chance to be saved, a chance to have remissions of sins, a chance to have power to overcome.  The Jews refused and the Gentiles accepted.

John 3:16 (KJV) 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Christ died on the cross so that all men might be saved. Everyone has an option. The question is who is ready to say “yes” to Christ and begin to follow Him.

Time To Reconcile

Time is precious. As soon as one is born, the time slated on earth is starting to tick away. What are you doing with your time? Are you striving to do things that are right? Are you helping someone? Are striving to see who you can make mad or fall? Are you taking the time out to celebrate someone other than yourself? 

The Lord Jesus Christ took time and came on this earth for you and I. He was the utilmate scarfice and now we do not need to go to Priest to pray for us for our prayers to reach God. We do not need to bring a lamb for atonment. Instead we pray in the name of Jesus. Christ Jesus is our advocate with the Father. Christ reconciled us back to the Father.

I John 2:1 King James Version; My little children, these things write I unto you, that  ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 

It is time to reconcile and forgive. Let go of the past and move forward. 

Blessings!

Faith That Moves God

Image result for faith moves mountains

Luke 18:35-42 King James Version

35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging: 36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant. 37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. 38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. 40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, 41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. 42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

The Faith of the blind man moved Jesus in such a way, that Jesus stopped an asked “What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?  It did not matter that the man was in the crowd and people told him to be quiet.  No!  He yelled louder, Son of David, have mercy on me!!   His Faith, stopped Christ Jesus!  His Faith moved Heaven!  He received his sight!

Does your Faith move God?

Be Blessed!

Be a Giver

Image result for giving

 

Proverbs 28:22 ( ESV), A stingy man hastens after wealth and does not know that poverty will come upon him.

When the Lord Jesus walked the earth He stated that it is better to give than to receive. When you freely give, you are storing up treasures in heaven.  When ever you lend to the poor/less fortunate, God said He will repay you.

As the scripture states, a stingy man does not know that poverty will come upon him, one can be blessed in one area and lacking in another. So if you are blessed with money, but you are lacking in love, what is it worth? You are being stingy with your love. The result of this stinginess is poverty in the area of love. The Lord Jesus wants us to blessed in every area of our life.  3 John 2 (ESV), Beloved I pray that all may be well with you and that you may be in good heath, as it goes well with your soul.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Teach us not be like the individual in the scripture. Teach us how to be givers. Givers of our time, money and love.

In Jesus Name.

Amen.

Be Blessed!

Difficulty and Hope

Image result for picture of hope

 

Difficult times will touch everyone’s life at sometime or another. It may be a financial, family, or physical. It may be foreseen or not. Regardless, one must decide how they will respond. It really is important on how we respond on the onset of difficult times. Will we be hopeful or will be depressed and sadden?  I encourage you to be hopeful and believe that the best is yet to come. In other words have faith.  Faith is believing in something that you cannot see. Faith is the substance of things hoped for in the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1). Father Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him as righteousness.

Hebrews 6:12-15 New Life Version – 12 Do not be lazy. Be like those who have faith and have not given up. They will receive what God has promised them.

God’s Promise

13 When God made a promise to Abraham, He made that promise in His own name because no one was greater. 14 He said, “I will make you happy in so many ways. For sure, I will give you many children.” 15 Abraham was willing to wait and God gave to him what He had promised.

Hope is defined as to cherish a desire with anticipation; to want something to happen or be true;trust; to desire with exception of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence.

You will find if you search on “how hope can help you”, written articles regarding hope and how it works. Below are three.

Having hope and believing, will help us all through difficult times in life.

Differences

Image result for differences

 

We are all different. We all have a different thumbprint.We all think differently and handle issues differently. That is what makes us unique. No one can be me, not even my children. They may have my ways and some of my thought processes, but they can not be me. No one can be you.

I Peter 2:9 King Jame Version But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light

Celebrate your uniqueness today. Celebrate the Christ in you, the hope of glory. As you go through out the day and someone seems strange to you, remember they may be thinking the same thing about you. Extend your hand, give a smile, show some love.

John 13:35 KJV By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Be Blessed!

Chaos

Image result for peace in the midst of chaos

 

Chaos is a state of utter confusion. People are upset and things are not making sense. In the midst of this, something magnificent happening, one is becoming stronger. The strength to stand is being formed. If you do not whether the storm, how are going to find out what you are capable of doing and handling?

Let’s look at the oyster. When a grain of sand or food particle gets stuck in the mollusk of oyster, the oyster protects its self by coating the particle with nacre. As a result of this defense mechanism, a pearl is formed.

If the particle was never stuck, the pearl would not be formed. If chaos or trouble, do not happen, one would not know if they can handle the situation and one would not be stronger in that area.

The Bible tells us in the midst of trouble, we will find comfort and strength in God.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

When the next bout of trouble comes, think, what will I gain from this experience?

 

Blessings

Resolution

How to resolve conflict at work in just five daysHow to resolve conflict at work in just five daysHow to resolve conflict at work in just five days

Image result for resolve a problem

During the beginning of every year, we hear “New Year Resolution”.  Resolution is the act of resolving. Resolving is to deal with successfully; to clear up. Are there issues that you want to resolve in 2017?  Are there issues that you carried over from 2016 to 2017? I encourage you to write them down and come up with a plan that will allow you to resolve. Take baby steps. Once you complete one part, reward yourself as a way to keep motivated and push forward. Change is good and resolving to make a change that will benefit your life is most important.

Genesis 2:7 King James Version (KJV) And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Mind, body and soul. Remember to feed your mind good food, which are good thoughts. God created us in His image and we are part spirit. The words that we speak are seeds. Seeds grow.

Proverbs 18:21 KJV Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Choose to speak life over yourself today. Stay positive.

 

Blessings
