Future

The steps we take today, determine our future tomorrow.  For a brighter tomorrow, let your light shine today.  More specifically, let Jesus shine through you.  The future has never been so bright and exciting.

 

The devil is not so concerned about what we have DONE,  good / or bad, but,  he doesn’t want us to have a future.  He doesn’t even really mind that we were baptized /  filled with the Holy Ghost. He wants to stop us there.  No future in Christ.

 

Interesting to note, that when Satan tempted Jesus in Matthew 4, it was before Jesus ever did his first miracle, healed, raised the dead or walked on water.

 

Jesus had just been baptized by John the Baptist, and a voice spoke from heaven saying  “this is my beloved  son in whom I am well pleased”.   Lucifer probably thought, I’ve got to snuff this out before He has a future.  He first tried to get Jesus to commit suicide,  that didn’t work.  Then he showed Him, all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.  But that didn’t work, so for the next 3 ½ years, Satan used everyone and every trick he had.    But,  He couldn’t stop Jesus.

 

Step by step, day by day,  Jesus moved closer to the  future he was born for,  A   CROSS.

When Jesus said,” IT IS FINISHED” ,  Satan may have been having  a hot party.  But a knock came on the door, and a booming voice cried GIVE ME THE KEYS.  The future of millions of souls would be loosed and freed!!!!

 

Here is the mustard seed.  We must not become content with the status quo of  JUST BEING SAVED.

WE  HAVE A FUTURE!  Lucifer is doing all he can to hinder, bribe, distort and distroy it.  He knows the power and potential, we have.  He couldn’t stop Christ future then, and he can’t stop our future in Christ now.

 

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me……Isaiah 61:1-3.

I can do all things through Christ ……Phillipians 4:13  

I have power  ……..Acts 1:8

Not by might  /  power  /   but by my Spirit sayeth the Lord of host….Zechariah 4:6

 

Here comes the future.  Lifepoint are you ready to step into 2017?  I see the future for us and Lifepoint,

IT IS VICTORIOUS!!!



A Great Sum

A great Sum

Acts 22:28    The Apostle Paul and a Roman soldier were having a discussion about freedom.  The soldier said, “I obtained my freedom at A GREAT SUM.”   Apparently, the Roman soldier had obtained his citizenship/ freedom at great price. Whatever the cost, it was worth that great sum to be a free Roman citizen.

 

Freedom has never been free. I thank God for the freedom we have as citizens in the United States of America. The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the freedoms they embody and guarantee to every American citizen came at a great sum. From 1776 thru the War of 1812, Gettysburg, Pearl Harbor, Battle at Midway, WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Afghanistan, the fight for freedom rages on.  Oh, THE GREAT SUM  that has been paid financially, physically and emotionally.  All have given some, but some have given all.   I honor them and thank God for the freedoms we enjoy today.

Living In A Miracle, Doubting Miracles

I have been going through one of the most difficult situations in my life. I have paced my hallways, prayed and cried before God. I have lost countless nights of sleep because I have been brought to a situation that I have never faced before! This is so out of my control. This situation is gigantic. It has brought fear and confusion, hurt and pain. But, I am so thankful for the Word of God. As I was down on my knees in despair, God brought to my mind the children of Israel.
 
They had been living a miracle existence. They had come out of Egypt because of the Hand of God. They crossed through the Red Sea onto dry ground and watched their enemy destroyed because of the power of God. The Israelites received their daily sustenance as a miraculous bread from heaven. Their very steps were ordered by God as they followed a miracle in the sky. But when the children of Israel come to the promise land God had told them was there, they began to doubt. There very existence was a miracle; the very place they were in life was a miracle, but because they had never faced these giants before they began to doubt God and looked to their own ability, which they deduced as being grasshoppers. This caused them to wonder in the wilderness for 40 years. When they came back to the land of promise the second time, they came back in faith and were able to move forward and claim the miracle and walk into the land of promise.

Fear-Faith-Fight

It is snowing again!  Just when I thought it was going to warmTree of Life Banner Widget up and maybe see some green, it is cold and windy again. In my school classroom, we have snow flakes all over one wall with the phrase, “Let It Snow”. I said yesterday, I don’t want to see any more snow, let’s take that down and put up birds and flowers and sun. I know it is coming, so I am going to prepare for it, start thinking like it and let it begin looking like it. I am getting ready for spring!
 
In our life we face some times when we are so tired of our circumstances. We are overwhelmed with fear, because we think we can never get past the problems we are facing. But, it is time to fight our fear with faith. Start believing in the God that can change our problems into victories. Stop looking at what we see, and instead start believing in the word of God and seeing in faith what He can do!
 
There is a saying, “The early bird gets the worm.” We need to be like the early bird and go after the word of God. We will get our victory when we fight our fear with faith in the word of God.  “O God, thou are my God; early will I seek thee; my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.”(Ps. 63:1) When I am feeling discouraged and full of fear, I need to go to the Bible.  There I will find the nourishment my soul needs to fight with faith the fear that is trying to overtake my life and keep me from moving forward in God.

Broken Pieces

Love Worship Backgrounds“Something beautiful, something good, all of my confusion He understood. All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife, but He made something, beautiful out of my life.”  I remember this song being sung years ago. It is an old song, but the message still rings true for today. God can take our broken pieces and put them together into something more beautiful than we could ever imagine.

No one likes broken things. We all want to mend what is broken. Even children don’t like broken things. I remember putting my dolls on my dad’s dresser waiting for him to come home so he could mend the broken arm, or leg, or worse head! I didn’t like having to give up that doll and leave it on my dad’s dresser and wait. But, in order for it to be mended I had to leave it where he would see it. Dad always did his best to repair the broken pieces.
