A National Spiritual Awakening Will Bring a Change in Our Hearts

A National Spiritual Awakening Will Bring a Change in Our Hearts

January 31, 2019

MESSAGE SUMMARY spiritual awakening is needed not only to save souls from eternal damnation but to save our way of life. Our way of life is slipping quickly away from us. Our way of life is not just about elections and politics. The risk to our way of life relates to all of us. This risk will only be addressed by a change in our hearts, and the hearts of the people will not change until we have a true spiritual awakening. As Jesus tells us in John 14:1: “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.”. Additionally, Isaiah tells us in Isaiah 35:4: “Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.”.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONToday, Because of who I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be driven by Resentment. Rather, I will abide in the Lord’s Compassion. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).

January 30, 2019

MESSAGE SUMMARYWith your personal relationship with God, He is with you as you walk through all the times of your life – “. . .I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20b). In Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, God tells us about all the times of the times of our lives: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.".

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: Today, I affirm that, because I am in Jesus ChristGod isn’t finished with me yet. (Philippians 1:6)“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”. (Philippians 4:14).

What “Life Focus” Fills Your Heart, and Has It Become Your “god”?

What “Life Focus” Fills Your Heart, and Has It Become Your “god”?

January 29, 2019

MESSAGE SUMMARY: God could care less about your money. God is concerned about your heart. God is concerned about the purity of your heart and if your treasure has been put in the wrong places. If your heart is in the right place, then your money will be in the right place. As Jesus tells you in Mathew 6:19-21: "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Sadly, too many of our hearts are filled with greed and envy; therefore, our treasure has become our god.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONToday, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my DespairRather, I will walk in the Spirit’s fruit of Joy. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

Your Personal Relationship with God Makes Everything Else Insignificant

Your Personal Relationship with God Makes Everything Else Insignificant

January 28, 2019

MESSAGE SUMMARYKnowing God and having that personal relationship with Him is summarized in John 17:3: “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.". This personal relationship with God, and knowing Him in our lives, renders everything else in our lives insignificant, as Jesus’ interchange with the Apostle Peter, in Matthew 16:13-18, exemplifies: “he {Jesus}asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that the Son of Man is?’ And they said, ‘Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Simon Peter replied, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ And Jesus answered him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’”.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONBecause of who I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be driven by AngerRather, I will abide in the Lord’s Forgiveness. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).

Have You Permitted God to Light His “Furnace” in Your Life?

Have You Permitted God to Light His “Furnace” in Your Life?

January 27, 2019

MESSAGE SUMMARY: Every relationship in our life is a day-by-day journey; therefore, our relationship with the Lord is, also, a continuous journey. We must maintain constant repentance with the Lord. In 2 Corinthians 7:10, Paul succinctly describes the difference between “grief” and “sorrow” for our sinful actions and true “repentance”: “For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.". God can show us those things, in our lives, that He wants us to do or not do. Some of us have the “pilot light lit” because we have asked Jesus to bring the Holy Spirit into our lives; however, the “furnace isn’t engaged”. The “fire of God” is not in our lives because we are not willing to come to the Lord in penitence and to “repent”.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONI affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, JesusI AM RIGHTEOUS IN GOD’S EYESGod made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21).
