THROUGH HIM WHO STRENGTHENS ME.

Scripture:
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him” – Jeremiah 17:7.

 

Message:
Everybody is searching for peace. No one can avoid the strain of life or the severe stress it brings with it. Jesus radiated love, serenity and peace; no matter how turbulent or chaotic the circumstances were around Him.

This was the result of His intimate relationship with His Father. Jesus regularly withdrew in solitude to pray and pour out His heart to His Father. Then He was able to return to a stormy life with the peace of heaven in His heart.

Whatever life may have in store for you, you will be victorious in His strength because, “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength” – Philippians 4:13. 

 

Prayer:

You are my Keeper, O Lord, I place myself under Your control and in Your care. That is why I am assured of Your peace. Amen.

OMNIPOTENT PROTECTOR

Scripture:


“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my Savior.” – 2 Samuel 22:2-3.

 

Message:


When we are afflicted and needy, the love and omnipotence of God protects us. We can overcome any challenge, adversity, and problem if we only steadfastly trust in His loving care and grace.

He will command His angels to watch over us and protect us from any danger. He enables us to think quickly and act wisely and this is our protection against attacks and temptations from Satan. Our ability to adapt to our circumstances, to always have a song in our hearts, and to be joyful regardless of the situation, protects us against loneliness and depression, filling our hearts and minds with peace and joy.


Prayer:


Father, thank You for giving me Your light and Your wisdom so that I can always do what is right. Amen.

I want to trust you with every aspect of my life because of Your great love. Then my heart will be filled with peace and I will fear no evil. Amen.

GOD IS WITH YOU.

Scripture:

“The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you.” – Zephaniah 3:17

 

 

Message:

When things go wrong in life it is easy to despair and become overwhelmed by a sense of complete helplessness and hopelessness.

If ever anything seemed hopeless, it was on the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. The hopes and dreams of those who thought that He was the promised Messiah were shattered when He died on the cross. But then God intervened and miraculously turned apparent defeat into victory. The sorrowful Good Friday was transformed into the triumphant resurrection of the Easter Sunday – when Christ rose victoriously from the grave.

 

Whatever circumstances you might find yourself in, however dismal, always remember that God is with you and that He is in control of your circumstances.

 

 

Prayer:

Redeemer and Friend, thank You that I can be sure that God loves me and is always with me. Amen.

LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS.

 

Scripture:
“To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ: Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.” – Jude 1-2.

 

Message:
It seems as if the world is in a perpetual state of chaos. Lawlessness and violence are increasing, and people live in fear and insecurity. What is the solution to such a sad state of affairs?

There can only be one answer and that is to turn to Jesus Christ. He has already conquered this dark and hostile world and replaced fear with love so that You can confidently place your faith and trust in Him.

Believe in Jesus and His promises and He will give you the blessing of His peace that transcends all understanding. Trust in Him and He will lead you from the darkness into the light of His immeasurable love for humankind.

Prayer:

Thank You, my Lord and God, that You grant perfect peace to Your children in this dark world. Amen.

IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL

 

Sripture:
“Why have you rejected us forever, O God? Why does Your anger smolder against the sheep of Your pasture? – Psalm 74:1

 

Message:
There are many people whose lives fall apart, and they feel abandoned and forsaken. Yet it is not true to believe that God will ever forsake you. He has promised to be with you always and to never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). He even proved His unfathomable love by sacrificing His only Son on the cross for us.

God has a divine purpose for everything that happens in your life. Even when you are the victim of adversity, don’t despair. He wants to use these circumstances to bring about His perfect will in your life.

Prayer:

Be still, my soul, the Lord is on your side. Patiently bear all sorrow and grief and leave all decisions in His loving hands. When everything else fails, You, Lord, remain faithful. Amen.

LIVE IN POWER

Scripture:

“Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” – Romans 6:4.

 

 

Message:

As a believer, you actually have residing in you the same new life God gave Jesus when He raised Him from the dead. The old sinner you once were has died. You’ve become a new creation on the inside.

You are full of the resurrection life of God!

But sin, disobedience and living a selfish, carnal life will keep that resurrection life from flowing out. Sin will separate you from the power of God, even though you’re born again.

Resurrection life will lay dormant in you if you walk in sin.

You can’t overcome sin by trying to stop sinning, however. You overcome it by walking after the new life God has put within you; by spending time in the Word and in prayer. As you do that, the Spirit of God will strengthen you and enable you to put that sin under your feet.

Remember, though, the Holy Spirit will not subdue those old fleshly habits of yours on His own. He’ll wait on you to take the initiative. Then He will strengthen you to follow through with your decision. He will teach you how to walk in the new life that is in you.

Take the first step today by asking for His help. Say, “Lord, I desire to experience the power to live by this new life every day. By a decision of my heart, I put down the dictates of sin. I declare myself dead to it. In Jesus’ Name, I will spend time in prayer and in the Word today. As I do, I believe I’ll receive a Holy Ghost refreshing in my life. I believe I’ll begin to live out the resurrection power that You’ve placed in me!”

 

 

Confession 

Lord, I desire to experience the power to live by this new life every day. By a decision of my heart, I put down the dictates of sin. I declare myself dead to it. In Jesus’ Name, I will spend time in prayer and in the Word today. As I do, I believe I’ll receive a Holy Ghost refreshing in my life. I believe I’ll begin to live out the resurrection power that You’ve placed in me!

RENEW YOUR CHARACTER

Scripture:

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17.

 

 

Message:

Most people observe our characters and form an impression based on what they see. Yet, only a few people take the time to develop an agreeable character.

Many people believe that a person’s character cannot be changed. This is not true. If this were so, the redeeming love of Christ would have been in vain. Sinners can change into saints and unpleasant people can become amiable when the love of Christ enters their hearts.

When you open your life to Christ, His influence is reflected in your life and a transformation occurs. You surrender yourself to the Lord and through that, your character changes.

 

Prayer:

Your love is always with me, Lord. Father, draw me closer into Your circle of love every day. I want to remain in You. Amen.

IN THE SERVICE OF GOD.

 

Scripture:

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” – 2 Timothy 2:15

 

Message:

Some people work tirelessly for God, seldom leaving any free time for themselves. Have you become so involved in God’s work that you’ve lost sight of what God wants you to do?

If you don’t get “topped up” by God regularly, one day something will just wither in your soul, all Christians activities will cease, and a life that may have been of great importance to God is lost.

The most important duty of any Christian worker is to strengthen your relationship with God every day. If you are too busy to spend time with Him in daily prayer then you are simply too busy to be an effective servant for Him.

 

Prayer:

Loving Master, help me not to lose sight of the service you want me to do. Amen.
