What God Wants

Our sacrifice.
“O my people, listen as I speak…I am God, your God! I have no complaint about your sacrifices…But I want more. I don’t need the bulls you sacrifice… What I want instead is your TRUE THANKS to God. I want you to fulfill your vows to the Most High. Trust me in your times of trouble and I will rescue you and you will give me glory. Giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me.” Psalms 50:8-25. Like King David, God wants us to say-“I know The Lord is always with me. No wonder my heart is filled with joy and my mouth shouts His praises. My body rests in hope.” Acts 2:25-26. Thanksgiving is the sacrifice that honors our Savior. Have a great day. I’m praying for you.

The “Rest” of Jesus

The “Rest” of Jesus
In John 17:19 Jesus is praying to The Father. “And I give myself ENTIRELY to you so they also might be ENTIRELY yours.” This was the work of The Savior. “And Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests; but The Son of Man has no where to lay His head.” Matt. 8:20. Jesus had no rest in this world. He sacrificed ENTIRELY so that we could be entirely His. He lived entirely for us. Until one day rest came. “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said ‘It is Finished’; and HE BOWED HIS HEAD, then He gave up the spirit.” John 19:30. He rested when His work was done. He loves us more than we will ever understand. Have a great day. I’m praying for you

God, Is It Nothing to You that I’m Falling?

God, Is It Nothing to You that I Am Going Down?
They thought God didn’t care.
Mark 4:35-41 “Late that day Jesus said to them ‘Let’s go across to the other side of the sea.’ They took Him into the boat…A huge storm came up. Waves poured into the boat, threatening to sink it. And Jesus was in the stern, head on a pillow, SLEEPING! They roused Him saying, ‘Teacher, IS IT NOTHNG TO YOU THAT WE ARE GOING DOWN?’ Jesus told the wind to pipe down, and said to the sea, ‘Quiet! Settle Down! Now the WIND RAN OUT OF BREATH and the sea became smooth as glass. Then Jesus asked, Why are you afraid? Don’t you have any faith?” Our problems are big. We feel very small. We ask,”Is it nothing to God that I am consumed with trouble?” But Jesus answers us-“Why are you afraid?” When Jesus steps in, the wind of our problems will run out of breath! Have faith in The Savior that loves you unconditionally. Faith to conquer breaks down when we don’t know the depths of His Love. The wind runs out of breath and our sea is smooth when we KNOW He loves us. I’m praying that you know His love today.

The Racket of Life.

The Racket of Life

Son of man, look with your eyes and hear with your ears, and fix your mind on everything I show you.
Ezekiel 40:4

Novak Djokovic is the Number One tennis player in the world. After beating Andy Murray at the Shanghai Masters, he told reporters, “A calm mind always wins. Confidence plays a key role for any person on this planet.”

For Christians, a calm mind comes from having our thoughts fixed on Jesus and our minds stayed on Him (Hebrews 3:1; Isaiah 26:3). Jesus told us to love Him with all our mind (Matthew 22:37). The Bible warns against an “anxious mind” (Luke 12:29) and instructs us to set our minds on “things above” (Colossians 3:2). We’re to be renewed in the spirit of our minds. To be spiritually minded is “life and peace” (Ephesians 4:23; Romans 8:6). As we meditate on God’s Word, the peace of God guards our “hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

Amid the racket of life, a calm mind always wins. Learn to deliberately fix your mind on Jesus and His Word today. Focus on Christ and feed on His Word.
David Jeremiah

It is a grand thing when the mind becomes calm, when the soul grows strong, when courage increases, when confidence comes, when deep peace and quiet restfulness flow into the soul.
Charles H. Spurgeon

2 Corinthians 10:3-5
New King James Version (NKJV)
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

I talk to God always. It’s as if He’s my friend, Dad and my God. Mostly we talk of simple things that should not cause worry. But this week I have been “awash in fear”. They r trying to take my granddaughters away. The God showed me Gideon. My heart was filled with the fact that he had been given the Holy Spirit. Only our savior can push out all the fear and fill u with Jesus

Heart’s Hear! Psalms 27:8a “My heart has heard…” God speaks to our hearts. What does God say? Ps. 27:8a “Come and talk with Me”. God asks us to come and talk. No condemnation. No requirement. Just talk! What does YOUR heart say? Ps. 27:8b “And my heart responds ‘Lord, I’m coming!!” Ps. 26:3 “For I am constantly aware of your unfailing love” Ps. 31:7 “I am overcome with joy because of your unfailing…

Unseen Drifting

Listen or Drift.
“So we must listen very carefully to the Truth we have heard, or we may drift away.” Hebrews 2:1. We slowly leave God, a little bit at a time. “But Christ, the faithful Son, was in charge of the entire household. And we are God’s household, if we keep up our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ. That is why the Holy Spirit says, ‘Today you must listen to His voice. Don’t harden your hearts’…” Heb.3:6-8. “For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. But never forget the warning, ‘Today you must listen to His voice. Don’t harden your hearts’…” Heb. 3:14-15. For only we who believe can enter His place of rest…’Today you must listen to His voice. Don’t harden you hearts’…There is a special rest still waiting for the people of God.” Heb.4:3-11.(NLT) Don’t Drift, and you will remain strong and confident. Don’t Drift, and you will share with Christ. Don’t Drift, and you will find rest. Listen to the voice of God. Today. I’m praying for you.

Is Happy possible?

Happy? Are you kidding? Psalms 84:12″O Lord Almighty, HAPPY are those who trust in you.” Ps.84:5-7″HAPPY are those who are strong in The Lord, who set their MINDS on a pilgrimage…When they walk through the Valley if Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs, where pools of blessings collect after the rains! They will continue to grow strong, and each of them will appear before God.” Ps.94:17-19 “Unless The Lord had helped me, I would soon have died. I cried out ‘I’m slipping’ and your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me. When doubts filled my MIND, your comfort gave me renewed hope and CHEER.” 2 Thessalonians 2:13-16 “We are thankful that God CHOSE YOU…to experience salvation, a salvation that came through the Spirit who MAKES YOU HOLY and by your belief in the truth, He called you to salvation…Now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus. Stand firm and keep a strong grip. May our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father, who loved us…comfort your hearts and give you strength.” “Your unfailing love is better for me than life itself!” Ps.63:3. Now that’s happiness. I’m so praying for you.
