WHEN LIFE CHANGE

 

YOUR LIFE IS ALWAYS A WORK IN PROGRESS

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES

Life is an evolutionary process and how you process the flow comes through strength and obedience to endure events in time as they unfold. You may find that your way of dealing with and processing information is not necessarily a need to impress others, but to be pleasing in the sight of God. You may at some moment in time find yourself wounded by the very “things” or “people” you placed your hope in and then experience disappointment. Be sure of one thing, it is God’s hand that catches the falling soul; he casts it to the wind and commands it to fly again (that’s complete control).

You need to know about the masterful plan of God, how he has planned your life; after all, it is he who birthed you into existence, He gave you all you will ever need to maneuver the straights of life’s ever unfolding events. He is able to lift you above life’s circumstances, he is strong and mighty, “no weapon formed against you shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17; NKJV), because you are his creation the devil has no say. “For weapons of warfare are not carnal but mighty in God pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (1 Corinthians: 10: 4-6).”

Jesus is our rest, hope and peace, for we are saved by grace through faith not by our works, the good things we do (Ephesians: 2: 8, 9; NKJV). He has paid the price of redemption for all who choose to accept him as their life giving spirit, a spirit no mortal man can give. Therefore being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans: 5:1).

So when you come face to face with life change; remember that “when life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself, enter the silence; bow in prayer, don’t ask questions wait for hope to appear (Lamentation: 3: 28-30; MGS).”

A VOICE IN TIME OF STILLNESS

A VOICE IN TIME OF STILLNESS

SETTLE YOURSELF FOR GOD LIVES IN YOU:

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

It is high time to realize that as the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed from almost any corner of the globe, that God’s Word has enduring power and is there to strengthen the weakest of the weakest. Centered in Christ the Holy Spirit moves in stillness and you are therefore assured of a helper in your darkest hours.

There may be times that you realize (if you haven’t already) circumstances will challenge the deepest part of your inner being; it is then you SETTLE YOURSELF FOR GOD LIVES IN YOU. God is the source of your connection; therefore, finding time to quite your thoughts and calm your inner spirit allows for moments of refreshing and reassurance that nothing or no one can hinder the process once it is set in motion.

Understanding the difference between carnal and spirit helps one to gain a greater appreciation of who God is and how he has molded and shaped each of you for his purpose. For scripture reminds us this way, “Oh, yes, you shaped me in my mother’s womb…you know me inside and out, every bone in my body. You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculptured from nothing to something. You watched me grow from conception to birth, all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day (Psalm 139:13-18: MGS).”

So, SETTLE YOURSELF FOR GOD LIVES IN YOU, because you are his unique creation. Once and for all your freedom has been purchased and paid in full through the sacrificial blood of Jesus; therefore, you are free beings with opportunity to approach the throne of grace in time of need. Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1; NKJV). You are a blessed people in which God’s grace and love centers you as you are while allowing room for expansion and growth in glorious living, you are “royalty,” a child of the King.

SETTLE YOURSELF FOR GOD LIVES IN YOU, for the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1: 18); but as it is written “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard; nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love him (1 Corinthians 2: 9).” Settle yourself in the Lord, for he is enduring strength.

JESUS PERMITTED HIMSELF TO BE CRUCIFIED

JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Man, in his lack of knowledge, his vague understanding of the justice of a loving Father, has made the grave a darkened sepulcher, a thing to be dreaded, and an end to all his aspirations and his ambitions. For ages he has feared this ending of physical existence and has made of it a time of intense mourning, a period filled with tears. BUT, this Great Spirit who had power over life and death permitted Himself to be crucified; He came to this Earth for that great purpose.

However, the question may be raised: If we claim that Jesus the Christ had power over His life, then why did he permit the great indignities and cruelties which were perpetrated upon Him and why did He not save Himself from this undignified and cruel death?

Now listen to what Jesus tells us about another man taking his life away from him.  Jesus tells us in John 10 these words, He says, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life that I might take it again?  No man 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 commandment have I received of my Father.” We find another statement given by the Christ after the crucifixion, after He had suffered death on the cross–when He had come back from the spiritual world to commune with His disciples. In the twenty-eighth chapter of Matthew, the eighteenth verse, He again claims the same power. “And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in Earth.”

Jesus’ Victory over Death

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).

We encourage you to stop in and visit with us daily, because from now until Easter Sunday Morning we will be presenting you with the story of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  I remain your brother in Jesus, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

MIND REALITY THOUGHTS

FRIDAY 3/28/14

PREPARE YOUR MIND FOR WARFARE

Every true child of God soon learns that the Christian life is warfare.  The hosts of Satan are committed to hinder and obstruct the work of Christ and to knock the individual solider out of combat.  The more effective a believer is for the Lord, the more he will experience the savage attacks of the enemy: the devil does not waste his ammunition on nominal Christians.  In our own strength we are no match for the devil.  So the first preparatory command is that we should be continually strengthened in the Lord and in the boundless resources of His might

.THURSDAY 3/27/14

PATIENCE IS A PARTNER OF FAITH

Patience is shown when “you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” (Hebrews 6:12 NKJ) Patience is an active force of perseverance, endurance, fortitude, and persistence. Patience is a force of action that does not distract you from your corresponding action but under girds it.  With the force of patience, you possess a greater tenacity to succeed.  ”By your steadfastness and patient endurance you shall win the true life of your souls.” (Luke 21:19 AMP)

BIRTH AND DEATH OCCUR SIMULTANEOUSLY

When we look deeply and recognize the causes and conditions that allow birth and death to be, we realize that birth and death are only notions.  The manifestation of something is not the beginning of its existence, and when something is not manifesting, this does not mean that it does not exist.  Before a phenomenon manifests, it is already there in the conditions.  Birth is made of death, and death is made of birth.  Birth and death occur simultaneously in each moment.  Before you were born, you were already there.  When you die, you do not become nothing.  You go back to the wholeness, to the base, in order to manifest again.

TUESDAY 3/25/14

HOW ORDERLY PEOPLE CONSERVE THEIR TIME

Orderly people conserve both their time and energy by never losing anything and therefore never having to find anything.  Everything is in its place, and the hand can be at once placed upon it, though it be in the dark.  They can well afford to be cool and deliberate, and so use their mental energies in something more profitable than irritation, bad temper, and accusing others for their own lack of order.

SATURDAY 3/22/14

SUPPLEMENT YOUR FAITH WITH VIRTUE

The WORD OF GOD speaks to us and says, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.” (2 Peter 1:5-7 ESV)

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand (Psalm: 95: 6-7; NKJV).

Christ has set us free to live a free life, so take your stand… (Galatian: 1; MGS)

It is absolutely clear that God called you to a free life make sure you don’t use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Use your freedom to serve one another in Love…for everything we know about God’s Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself; that’s an act of true freedom (Galatian: 5: 13-15).

So, let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good, at the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit (Galatian 6: 9-10).

May what our Master Jesus Christ gives freely be deeply and personally yours my friends (Galatian: 6:18).

Be blessed always!

THE HANDS THAT HOLDS YOUR TOMORROW

THE HANDS THAT HOLDS YOUR TOMORROW

PHOTO TAKEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES

PHOTO TAKEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES

You say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such city, spend a year there, buy and sell and make a profit; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow (James: 4: 13-14; NKJV).” You live each day not knowing what tomorrow will bring. You make plans, set goals and live for that moment in time; before you know it, you find yourself so caught up and worrying about tomorrow in which you have very little control. One of the most important things to remember is that the only time you have is where you are in the moment.

It is wise to lay out all your partitions before God because it is he who controls and direct life. His grace will be there in times of need, times of decision making or whatever it is you’re dealing with, he has promise to supply those things we need. “Therefore, don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things; sufficient for the day is its own troubles (Matthew 6: 34).”

Since you do not design your tomorrow; in reality, it is wisdom and knowledge you gain that encourages your hearts when it seems you’re in the darkest places. When everything around you changes, know that God is always the same; whatever you’re going through, know who holds your tomorrow. Take this day, this moment in time and share words of wisdom and encouragement with those you encounter along the way. Your tomorrow is in the hands of the Master planner!!

“Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand… (Ephesians: 6: 10-11).”

 

SHARE LOVE THAT WILL GROW

SHARE A LOVE THAT WILL GROW:

LOVE BOUNTIFUL IN FRUITS FROM THE SOUL:

PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy…parade itself…is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own; it is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity; but, rejoices in the truth. Love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things; Love never fails (1 Corinthians: 13:4-8; NKJV). What is it about these tributes that make it hard for people to get along in the world? How often do you take a moment and examine your attitude, can you say it’s one of love? For Jesus has taught and shown the world how to love, for which without, no man will see God.

If you pause and look around, you can plainly see that people are growing colder, more immune to violence and despair.  Would you reach out to people you don’t know, those who desperately need to know they matter. Homeless people, those incarcerated, gang members, teenage mothers, runaways, battered women and children, junkies—people who are lost and have given up hope; have you made an attempt to let them know that there are angles among us.

Jesus says, “…my commandment is that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love have no man than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friend (John: 15: 12-13). So, do you pick and choose your friends or do you pray and ask the Master to give you a spirit of discernment instead of prejudice?  You will find that we are eager to admit love for one another and that’s great; but, just think how that same spirit of love can influence the attitude of others helping to shape a better world.

Just for today reverse negative thinking to positive, when you encounter something as simple as saying thank you with a smile you begin a cycle, which will flow from you, through you to others and back to yourself.

We are everything, yet we are nothing, we all are one and that process is comprised of Love, Agape Love, the kind of love Jesus shared throughout his ministry and passed on to all people. “So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well…appropriately…sincere and intelligent not a sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life…Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God (Philippians:  1: 9-11; MGS).” Glory belongs to God always!

 

 

LEARNING SELF CONTROL

LEARNING SELF CONTROL

Studying God’s word allows us to obtain knowledge of who God is, who we are and who we are in God.  When we are able to gain such critical knowledge, and then begin to act on that knowledge, it leads us steady to having SELF-CONTROL over every aspect of our daily lives. Today, allow me the opportunity to talk with you for a few minutes on the subject of LEARNING SELF CONTROL. Click on the video and let us begin:

SELF CONTROL is one of the fruits of the Spirit; SELF-CONTROL refers to mastery over sinful human desires in every aspect of our life.  The Greeks considered this a highly prized virtue. Their focus, of course, was entirely on self-effort, but the problem was that self-effort always fails in the long run because it may control the body but does not affect inward desires.

Therefore, the WORD OF GOD speaks to us and says, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.” (2 Peter 1:5-7 ESV)

THURSDAY’S SCRIPTURE OF ENCOURAGEMENT

CAN WE AS A PEOPLE BE SAVED?

VIEW OF THE HEAVENS AND LAKE HURON ONE OF THE NATIONS SEVEN GREAT FRESH WATER LAKES (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

VIEW OF THE HEAVENS AND LAKE HURON ONE OF THE NATIONS SEVEN GREAT FRESH WATER LAKES (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

This is an aged old question that at some point in our spiritual journey we all have paused and asked ourselves.  Today as I sit and read the scriptures the lesson that I provide for you today provides the answers you need to know.  What I present to you today, are not my words, but the words that the message of God teaches us.  Take some time read and meditate on the true meaning of what scripture is teaching us when we ask the question, “CAN WE AS A PEOPLE BE SAVED?”  Now listen up:

Since before time began, no one has ever imagined; no ear heard, no eye seen, a God like you, who works for those who wait for him, you meet those who happily do what is right, who keep good memory of the way you work. But how angry you’ve been with us! We’ve sinned and kept at it so long! Is there any hope for us? Can we be saved? We’re all sin-infected, sin contaminated. Our best efforts are grease-stained rags. We dry up like autumn leaves sin-dried, we’re blown off by the wind.  Isaiah 64:3-6 MSG

I’ve made myself available to those who haven’t bothered to ask. I’m here; ready to be found by those who haven’t bothered to look. I kept saying ‘I’m here, I’m right here’ to a nation that ignored me. I reached out day after day to a people who turned their backs on me, People who make wrong turns, who insist on doing things their own way. They get on my nerves, are rude to my face day after day, Make up their own kitchen religion, a potluck religious stew.

They spend the night in tombs to get messages from the dead, Eat forbidden foods and drink a witch’s brew of potions and charms. They say, ‘Keep your distance. Don’t touch me. I’m holier than thou.’ These people gag me. I can’t stand their stench.

Look at this! Their sins are all written out I have the list before me. I’m not putting up with this any longer. I’ll pay them the wages they have coming for their sins, and for the sins of their parents lumped in, a bonus.” God says so.  “Because they’ve practiced their blasphemous worship, mocking me at their hillside shrines, I’ll let loose the consequences and pay them in full for their actions.”  Isaiah 65:1-7 MSG

Pay close attention now: I’m creating new heavens and a new earth.  All the earlier troubles, chaos, and pain are things of the past, to be forgotten.  Look ahead with joy. Anticipate what I’m creating: I’ll create Jerusalem as sheer joy, create my people as pure delight. I’ll take joy in Jerusalem, take delight in my people: No more sounds of weeping in the city, no cries of anguish; No more babies dying in the cradle, or old people who don’t enjoy a full lifetime; One-hundredth birthdays will be considered normal anything less will seem like a cheat. They’ll build houses and move in. They’ll plant fields and eat what they grow. No more building a house that some outsider takes over, No more planting fields that some enemy confiscates,
For my people will be as long-lived as trees, my chosen ones will have satisfaction in their work.

They won’t work and have nothing come of it, they won’t have children snatched out from under them. For they themselves are plantings blessed by God, with their children and grandchildren likewise God-blessed. Before they call out, I’ll answer. Before they’ve finished speaking, I’ll have heard. Wolf and lamb will graze the same meadow, lion and ox eat straw from the same trough, but snakes—they’ll get a diet of dirt! Neither animal nor human will hurt or kill anywhere on my Holy Mountain,” says God.  Isaiah 65:-17-25 MSG

PREPRATION FOR BATTLE

ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE YOUR GUIDE:

BEGINNING YOUR WEEK SHADOWED BY GOD:

OPEN YOUR HEART AND BE BLESSED" PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

OPEN YOUR HEART AND BE BLESSED” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Following instructions may seem difficult for some of you; why not take a moment to still your wondering mind and heart long enough to listen to the silence within if you’re expecting a breakthrough? It is through obedience you must prepare for what God has purposed in your heart, otherwise achieving your desired goal on your own can prove to be one big disaster after another. Obedience through faith brings your spirit in line with God, for the scripture says, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah: 1:19; NKJV).

In life you sometimes have to make choices and decisions that you’re not fully convinced that what you are doing or about to do is right. Well, you are encouraged to step out on faith; “now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews: 11:1).  Faith: “the fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see.” (Hebrews: 11:1 MGS) You were design in the mind of God long before you took your first breath, so everything connected to you comes from the source.

Today is the beginning of a new work week and many of you are contemplating decisions and choices that must be made or dealt with. Do not embark upon your journey with dread because your trust in God will see you through even the most difficult aspects if you are willing and obedient. Satan has made his assignment, and that is to counteract whatever God has set forth; remember this one thing, don’t be afraid, you belong to God, according to scripture, “delight yourself also in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm: 37:4). Allow the Holy Spirit to intervene in all things, keeping open your mind and heart, expecting to be blessed at all times, even though the mountains may seem high and the valleys low, God is able.

Allow your communication to be filled with joy, love and peace, “Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! For his mercy endures forever” (Psalm: 106:1).

CHALLENGE YOUR SELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL

CHALLENGE YOUR SELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL

For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, So the Master, GOD, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations.” Isaiah 61:11 MSG (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, So the Master, GOD, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations.” Isaiah 61:11 MSG (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion on his afflicted. Isaiah 49:13

My question to you this day in offering up this challenge is very simple:  Is there anything too hard for God?  And if you said NO, my Challenge for you is:  “CHALLENGE YOURSELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL.”  Now here is what you must do, “Take the very worst situation that you may face this day and look old Satan in the face, and say, “despite your efforts to turn me around, knock me down to the ground, still my peace and happiness, I will not succumb to your evil ways, I will face you down and rejoice in the joy that my God is providing me with.

Those of us who have learned to trust in God ought to exhibit a dramatically different, positive response to the difficult events of life.  Our attitude is to be one of genuine rejoicing.  This is not joyful anticipation for trials; instead, it is joy during trials.  The joy is based on confidence in the outcome of the trial.  It is the starting realization that trials represent the possibility of growth.

Rejoice and be Happy; BELIEVERS, it’s time to stop pretending to be happy.  It is time to put on your shouting shoes, get up out of your comfortable seats and rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.  Rejoicing goes beyond happiness.  Happiness centers on earthly circumstances and how well things are going here.  Joy centers on God and His presents in our experience.  Now listen careful to this very important message from Isaiah.  He says, “I will sing for joy in God, explode in praise from deep in my soul! He dressed me up in a suit of salvation; he outfitted me in a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara. For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations.” Isaiah 61:10-11 MSG

NOW REJOICE and  CHALLENGE YOUR SELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL!

BE STRONG AND BE OF GOOD COURAGE

BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND

BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND

IT’S TIME TO GET A NEW ATTITUDE

PASTOR DAVIS TEACHES ON THE BIBLE BEING OUR INSTRUCTION MANUAL

PASTOR DAVIS TEACHES ON THE BIBLE BEING OUR INSTRUCTION MANUAL

Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].  (Romans 12:2 AMP)

Every day we live provides us with an opportunity to improve ourselves in every way by simply committing to work on ourselves daily in the process of renewing our minds.  The bible teaches us to study to show ourselves approved.  If we would only take the time to follow these few simple guide lines we can overcome many of the difficulties we face in this world daily.  The bible is truly our instruction manual, giving us a complete outline on how we can live and enjoy a healthy life style by simply renewing our minds.  Now listen to how this instruction manual teaches us on the renewing of our minds:

Assuming that you have really heard Him and been taught by Him, as [all] Truth is in Jesus [embodied and personified in Him],

Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old un-renewed self], which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;

And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude],

And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.  (Ephesians 4:21-24 AMP)

To have a renewed mind is to function in accordance with a new value and belief system.  The conscience houses the values and beliefs that govern our lives.  It is like stacking or storing information on top of information: The more we learn the more is stored.

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers. (3 John 1:2 AMP)

Instead let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. (Ephesians 4:23 NLT)

It is clear from the Scriptures that you, as a Believer, are responsible for participating in the transformation process and ongoing maintenance of your thought life.  This is obligatory not optional.

Most people believe that renewing the mind is memorizing Scriptures.  And, thus, they spend hours memorizing verse after verse so that the Bible is always on ready recall.  However, memorizing Scripture and having Scripture govern our thought lives are two different things.  When the Bible speaks of renewing the mind, it is talking about a transformation in our decision making process.  This means changing the fundamental thought patterns and beliefs that are programmed into you.  Yes, programmed into you!

With that said, let me leave you with the most important scripture that we begin this study with, and it says clearly these words to you, “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”  (Romans 12:2 AMP)

I thank you for reading and studying with us this day.  May God add a blessing to your life as you work to share in His Ministry to help others come to Him and discover their eternal life.

 

 

DO NOT HAVE AN ANXIOUS MIND

DO NOT HAVE AN ANXIOUS MIND:

DO NOT WORRY:

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life…do not seek what you should eat or drink…nor have an anxious mind…do not fear…for it is your Fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom,” says Jesus (Luke 12:22-23; NKJV).

Be aware of whose you are and who controls your destiny; allow the Holy Spirit to enter into your life and you will be able to stand firm and weather the storms as they come—because it’s not over until God say so. Study obedience and surrender your “cares” to the one who really cares. Peter says, “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trail which come to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you: but rejoice…” (1 Peter: 3:9).

Today you will encounter something or someone that will attempt to derail your thoughts and or actions, especially if you’re striving towards the mark with all diligence. So prepare for any obstacle; besides, scripture reminds you this way, “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts; always be ready…” (1 Peter: 3:13-17).

Paul rounds it out with these words of encouragement: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the tricks of the devil…” (Ephesian: 6: 10-20).

For today keep a song in your heart while immersed in the Holy Spirit and the Lord of Lord’s will lift you up to the next level of your journey as you walk out your purpose. “Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.” (Ephesians: 6: 24)

EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON GOD

EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON GOD:

WHERE ARE YOU IN THE PLAN OF GOD?

"HEED YOUR HEAVENLY CALLING" PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

“HEED YOUR HEAVENLY CALLING” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Humanity has no claim on God that he does not freely give; but because you are God’s creation and recipients of his deliverance you belong to him for he planned it that way from the beginning. Though rebellion has often caused separation from what God had planned for you and me he continues to grace us with his favor. God said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever for he is indeed flesh…” (Genesis 6:3; NKJV), throughout time we continue to “grieve God’s heart” through disobedience, violence, corruption and deceit.

You are chosen of God; therefore strive to live out your purpose in his presence by being attentive to his voice. Everything about you (your life) depends on God’s initiative and everything occurs to achieve his purpose. If you embrace the way God does things, there are wonderful payoffs: God pays no attention to what others say (or what you think) about you. He makes up his own mind (Romans: 2:11; MGS).

We all start out as sinners and since we’ve complied this long and sorry record as sinners proving that we are utterly incapable of living glorious lives God wills for us; God sacrificed Jesus on the altar of the world to clear the world of sin, faith in him sets us free, makes it possible for us to live in his rightness (3: 20-26).

On a warm summer day or after a hard workout you usually will experience thirst; you drink liquids for refreshing and replenishing. Now consider what Jesus says, “He who comes to me shall never be hungry, and he who believes in me shall never thirst” (John: 6:35; NKJV). When we decide to become followers and learners of his teaching, we shall experience refreshing for our souls. The Holy Spirit speaking through Peter, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts: 3:19).

Make a joyful shout to the Lord…serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing. Know that the Lord, he is God; it is he who has made us, and not we ourselves. We are his people and the sheep of his pasture (Psalm 100: 1-3).
Be blessed!
