Monday’s Word of Encouragement (Be filled with Joy)

BE FILLED WITH JOY:

joy 11

Greetings My Dear Brothers and Sisters, welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.  For it is truly an amazing moment that we have this opportunity to begin a brand new week with our hearts filled with JOY!

The CHOICE we make this day will determine our success are failure for the rest of this week and possibly the rest of our natural life.  Therefore, I encourage you to choose well this day whom you will follow and what and whom you will allow into your space and joy 03minds, knowing that you are going to face many test of your faith as you step out into the world.  The old devil and his band of angels are waiting for you to enter into their space so they can show you all their glitter, tempting you to CHOOSE their way instead of the Lord’s way.

However, we can find encouragement in the Word of the Lord when He was faced with similar test from the devil, and this is what He says to us, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” (James 1:2-3 ESV)

JOY

BE ENCOURAGED IN THE LORD

My Brothers and Sisters as we walk the walk and talk the talk, let us remain steadfast in our faith when we face trials of any sort because, in Jesus we have the perfect example in which to follow.  Listen to what the Word of God says to us, “Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2 ESV)

FINDING JOY IN YOUR JOURNEY THIS DAY:joy 04

 

My Brothers and Sisters, it is my hope and prayer that as you begin your journey this week you will be filled with JOY in all that you do.  Therefore, I leave you with the final word from the Lord, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13 ESV)

Saturday Morning Devotional Prayer and Praise Service (Servants called to Serve)

WE ARE SERVANTS CALLED TO SERVE

CHILDREN FROM THE EMMANUEL CHURCH OF INDIA LIFTING UP HOLY HANDS IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP FOR OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST

CHILDREN FROM THE EMMANUEL CHURCH OF INDIA LIFTING UP HOLY HANDS IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP FOR OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST

My Brothers and Sisters let us prepare our hearts and minds for our Weekend prayer praise and worship service. For it is truly a moment and time that we can serve God, worship him in his high place, and serve each other. We are servants call to serve mankind. Expressing our love for each other is a form off service. For the Lord our God has granted us the freedom and opportunity to go to our jobs, our businesses, our schools and serve mankind. Now he is calling us as servants to come forth lift up our holy hands and serve him.

Now listen to what Paul tells us to do, He says, “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love, serve one another.” (Galatians 5:13 ESV) Let us take heed to Paul’s message, be obedient servants, serve God and each other, do not allow the devil to steal our joy, our freedom, and our ability to come before the throne of grace and praise God.

Being given our freedom to serve does not mean that we have freedom to sin. Let us keep our eye on the prize, which is Jesus Christ. Let this Freedom encourage us to have a heart for service. As a Christian we know that our freedom is in Christ Jesus, and this would exclude any possible thought that it might ever mean freedom to sin. Let us understand this one very important fact, and that we are to love one another as Jesus Christ’s has love each one of us.

For I can say to you today that a proper outlet for our freedom is simply this: “make it a habit to be slaves one to another.” Now listen to what Jesus tells us, “If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.” (John 12:26 ESV)

Therefore my brothers and sisters let us prepare our hearts and minds to lift up the Lord our God in prayer praise and worship this Weekend. Then let us go out and serve our fellowman. Becoming a true servant of the Lord, doing his will in the manner in which he will have us to do it. Let us love one another with all our hearts, minds and our soul. Be on one accord with each other in order that our heavenly father will honor each of us. Always remember, “WE ARE SERVANTS CALLED TO SERVE!”

Listen to how Isaiah prophesied about the “The Sin-Bearing-Servant”

He is despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief…he has borne our grief and carried our sorrows…he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities and by his stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53: 3-5).

Allow this Easter Holiday to become a time you seriously consider getting to know more about the one who came and died so that you can know how wonderful it is to be free, free indeed.

Gain Favor from God with a Humble Heart

How to experience Humility as a way of Life

EXPERIENCING HUMILITY (PHOTO BY Pastor Davis)

EXPERIENCING HUMILITY (PHOTO BY Pastor Davis)

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, do you really understand who you are when you look into the mirror and see that face looking back at you?  Do you ever ask the question, Oh God, who am I?  What I want you to understand in this lesson and the many lessons we teach here is How Humility works to bring you into the knowledge and power of  just who you are, who God is, and who you are in God.  Re-read and comprehend this last statement because it holds more power than an atom bomb.

The reward for HUMILITY and fear of the LORD is RICHES and HONOR and LIFE. (Proverbs 22:4 ESV) Now I ask you, how many of you do not want to experience these blessings in your life. God is teaching us how to live as that new person in this season and experience a true abundant lifestyle, BY LEARNING HOW TO EXPERIENCE HUMILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE!

In this, we are given a choice, we can befriend God are we can befriend the world. Some of us may say that we will befriend both God and the world, but in practice, we can only choose one way. The more we give ourselves to the world, the stronger will be our allegiance to the world. The more we give ourselves to God, the stronger will be our bond with him. This is what Jesus says, “Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be. (Matthew 6:21)

We have to remember, that we can find strength in the Lord, to live a humble lifestyle and receive all the lords abundant BLESSINGS. Although the world may consider us weak, when we show HUMILITY, this is because the world wants us to be filled with pride, and God sets himself against the proud, because pride makes us self-centered and leads us to conclude that we deserve all we can see, touch, or imagine. It creates greedy appetites far more than we need. Pride can subtly cause us to no longer see our sins or our need for forgiveness.

But remember this one great truth, HUMILITY opens the way for God’s grace to flow into our lives; thus, God shows favor to the HUMBLE.

Do not get so caught up in the ways of the world and the people that surrounds you, that you lose sight of who you are, who God is, who you are in God, that your heart becomes so hearten that you cannot HUMBLE yourselves in the presence of the Lord.

Understand this fact, “HUMILITY is not weakness; instead, it is the only place that believers gain courage to face all their temptations and sins with God’s strength.” As God gives us more grace, we realize that this world’s seductive attractions are only cheap substitutes for what God has to offer. It is our choice we can HUMBLE ourselves and receive God’s grace, or we can continue in our pride and self-sufficiency and experience his anger.

Now let me conclude this by leaving you with these two questions; (1). How do we, so prone to pride at the very moment when we think we might be approaching humility, discover true humility? (2). How do we become the kind of humble people who find the overflowing grace that God promises?

Well, listen to how Scripture teaches us to do it; “Let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” (James 4:7-10 MSG)

May the grace of God fill your lives with His overflowing blessings, and bring you much joy and peace now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

God’s promise was a Gift Fulfilled

Written by Shirley Rhodes

God‘s Promise Was a Gift Fulfilled and that promise was the gift of his Son in order that we might enter a life filled with His light. We are given the opportunity to share in fulfillment of God’ promise in which we must learn to depend and trust God and his way, by embracing him and what he does for each of us.

Jesus came into the world and was yet rejected, the scriptures addresses it this way: He came unto his own, and his own received him not (John1:11) But as many as received him, to them he gave power to become the sons  of God, even those who believed on his name (12), he was the Word made flesh, lived among man full of grace and truth(14)(KJV) through this kind act of God,  we  know that God’s Promise Was a Gift Fulfilled.

We are all God’s creation, when some see a person as nothing, God sees that person as something, he sees the possibilities, we only have to dare and trust in him for what he has promised.

When things seem hopeless, do not focus on what seems impossible because with God all things are possible.  Faith is the key to opening up and allowing our minds to grasp the greatness of the One who is able to give us what we need,” the just shall live by faith” (Habakkuk 2:4).

In order to share in what the promise offers we must decide to devote time and energy into getting to know the source, that is done through studying and sharing knowledge and understanding of how it is all purposed to come together in our lives. When we deeply plant the Word of promise in our hearts and focus on how the Holy Spirit (that which Jesus promised would come) works, we set aside time in prayer, believing in faith. Allowing our thoughts to be reminded that God’s Promise Was a Gift Fulfilled; we center ourselves in such a way that when all is complete;  we  come up strong and ready, sure that God will do just what he’s promised.

What we find in life is that if we trust in people we set ourselves up for disappointment by the very one(s) we trust who failed to follow through on what they promised. People are skeptical especially of things or people who seem too good to be true. One major fact is this, people like to have more than one form ofevidence in order to believe something that would in the ordinary seem unreal.

When Jesus told his followers it was really him, in the flesh after his resurrection, they didn’t believe him at first; in all actually what they were truly seeing was that, God’s Promise Was a Gift Fulfilled. 

When Jesus shared his last meal with his chosen followers after his resurrection, He opened their understanding and instructed them to be his witnesses and to wait for further instructions from God. ThePower they were to receive, the Holy Spirit, so that they could be witnesses of the resurrected Savior.

God gave his Word and kept his promise; he sacrificed his only Son to save mankind, God’s Promise Was a Gift Fulfilled. We owe him worship and praise continually.   And in Roman’s 12:1, Paul teaches us that we must be obedient to the word of God, he starts out by saying, “Brothers and sisters, in light of all I have shared with you about God’s mercies, I urge you to offer your bodies as a living and holy sacrifice to God, a sacred offering that brings Him pleasure; this is your reasonable, essential worship.”

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: And those who know your name put their trust in you,
 for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. (Psalms 9:10)  Then the word of the Lord came to him, “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you.” 1Kings 17:8-9)

Saturday Morning Devotional Prayer and Praise Service (Amazing Grace)

PRAISING GOD FOR HIS AMAZING GRACE

GOD'S AMAZING GRACE by Pastor Davis

GOD’S AMAZING GRACE by Pastor Davis

WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

My dear brothers and sisters, when I enter into the Lord’s presence daily with you my main goal is to equip you with the tools God has given to me to help you grow stronger in His word, in your faith, and in what ever calling that has been placed upon your life that you may remain faithful to Him that is keeping you in His will daily, and encourage you to stir up the gifts that He has already provided to you that you will become the great servant that He has called you to be.

LET US PRAY:

Father I thank you for your amazing grace that saved a soul like me.  Thank you for the The Angel Gabriel announcement to Mary by Photo Bucket
Holy Spirit that leads, guides and protects me in all I do.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your work here on this earth in building up your glorious Kingdom to help provide comfort and guidance for all your children who will seek you for their Lord and Savior. Father, pour out a blessing on all your children that they may receive the Kingdom of Heaven, and be lifted up in good health and be provided with the great abundance of fruit that you have prepared for all those who love you and desire to receive your amazing grace, in Jesus name, Amen!

MY TESTIMONY:

I like many of you was once lost, drifting in the sea of loneness, uninspired, unequipped to face the many challenges that I would encounter on a daily basics, with all sorts of temptations from the devil trying to take me in the wrong directions, but deep within my soul I knew that the Holy Spirit was protecting me and prompting me to make a change.  My Mom had always encouraged me to just trust God, and He would make a way out of no where.

LEARNING TO TRUST GOD:

I am writing to you today to let you know that I know God will make a way out of no way.  The day that my faith kicked in and I learn to Trust God, I know that it was nothing but God’s Amazing Grace that saved me.  Because I once was lost, but now I found, I was blind, but now I can see, through it all God never left me, nor did He forsake me.  He picked me up when I was falling down, and He turned my life around and planted my feet on solid ground.  Grace my brothers and sisters, God’s amazing grace gave me strength, courage, patience, love, joy, peace, understanding and the power of a locomotive engine to climb the mountains of this life, carry the heavy loads and never stall along the way.  What He has done for me, He can and will do the same for you, because His grace is sufficient to see you through.  Learn to Trust Him and be Obedient to His will.  It is nothing less than His amazing grace.

PRAISING GOD:

Today I can do  nothing less than lift Him up and praise His Holy name, because He is worthy to be praised.
