John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 5/31/17
Amen! He is worthy to be praised. (Romans 1:16) For I am notashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Have a blessed day and never forget who loves you (JESUS); more than you can ever imagine. #neverstopPraying #Jesuslovesyou #PraiseGod :) #TrustGod.
Mark 8:34-35 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. 5/30/17
Why is it important for the crowd in this chapter of Mark to learn what true discipleship is? Because Jesus says that in order to follow Him, people must deny themselves. This doesn't mean that you should deny your bodily needs, but rather that in order to be followers of Him, you must disown yourself. To disown yourself means that you are giving over EVERYTHING in your life over to Him (JESUS); you are no longer living as if you are the center of the universe but instead making Jesus the center of your universe; making Him the most important part of your life by putting Him first. You will also notice that Jesus tells His listeners to take up their cross. This doesn't mean that in order to follow Jesus, you must suffer and go through the pain by also dying on a cross, it means that in order to be His true follower, you must be willing to follow Jesus and to live for Him, no matter the consequences. Even if it does mean dying or suffering in some way. Are you a follower of Jesus? Are you living every second of your life for Him? Are you on your way to heaven if you were to die in the next few seconds? If you are not sure then you need to stop what you are doing right now and ask the Lord Jesus to come into your life. He can transform your life in so many ways. He loves you and that is exactly why He came into this world, to save sinners. For we ALL are sinners (Romans 3:23) and in order to inherit the kingdom of heaven when we die, we must ALL accept Jesus into our lives and take up our cross and follow Him, no matter the consequences. It doesn't matter what anybody says about you, what matters is that you are His and He loves you. You never know when you could die. It could be today, tomorrow or even sometime next week when you least expect it. Over 150,000 people die each day. Are you ready?

A lot of times, we sometimes wonder "where is God in this country?" or even during life's most difficult circumstances, when the real question should be, where are we? We often sometimes blame God for the works of human kind, when it is not God's fault at all. God is with us always and forever. He will never leave us nor forsake us. (Deuteronomy 31:4) (Hebrews 13:5) He has promised to be with us all, every step of the way. But in order for us to see God working in our lives and in this nation, we must first turn our lives around to Him by repenting of all our sins (turning away from them), and by believing and trusting in Him. He will come through. We just have to trust Him. Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). #Jesuslovesyou #PraiseGod :) #TrustGod.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 5/4/17
Do you worry a lot about the future? Do you spend a lot of time wondering if things will ever get better, or if life will always be this difficult? Even when life seems bleak or you feel like the greatest failure, God is still working behind the scenes to make you into a champion! The Bible tells us that God didn’t create us to be victims or to suffer, but to do good works and to prosper. This doesn’t mean that life will always be easy or that things will always go your way; it just means that even in the hard times, God has a plan and is orchestrating everything to your good. You may be thinking, “But how could He possibly turn my misery into something good?” Maybe one day you’ll be able to help someone through the same situation you’re going through right now. Maybe God wants you to fully rely on Him during this time in a way that you never have before. Whatever His reasons, you can rest assured that God’s plans are always greater than your own, and that if you let Him, He will one day utilize your talents, passions, and burdens to change the world. You are destined for greatness! Take a moment now to pray this to God: God, thank You for creating me with a divine purpose. You’ve known since the beginning of time what my life’s calling is, and I thank You that even the tough times are part of Your plan for me. Please help me remember Your promises in Scripture--that You’ll bring me through this season of life to something great, and that my future is full of hope. I trust You with my life, God, and pray that You would use it to accomplish something incredible for You. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 5/3/17
Notice that this verse does not say all of our wants but all of our needs. God knows our hearts and what we need. He also knows what will make us stronger in our relationships with Him. He is the ultimate healer and the ultimate sacrifice. He loves you and He cares for you. Have a wonderful day today and anytime you wonder where God is when you are facing something difficult or challenging in life, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test. #Jesuslovesyou #PraiseGod :) #TrustGod.
Joel 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. 5/2/17
Even in our most challenging tests that God gives us in life, we can overcome because if not, God would not have given them to us in the first place if He knew that we couldn't handle them. Our heavenly Father knows exactly what we need at all times in our lives. He knows what will make us stronger and He knows what will make us wiser. God can restore what is broken and change it into something amazing. All you need to do is believe and have faith. Have an outstanding day and always remember that Jesus is with you always and that He loves you forever and ever. Amen. #Jesuslovesyou #PraiseGod :) #TrustGod. (There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.) 1 Corinthians 10:13
