Are you a slave to the past?
“No matter how deep the stain of your sin, I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow.” Isa. 1:18 “And you are my servant. You have been CHOSEN to KNOW Me, BELIEVE in Me and UNDERSTAND that I alone am God…I, yes, I alone-am The One who blots out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again.”Isa.43:10-11. “Pay attention…for you are my servant. I, The Lord made you, and I will not forget to help you. I have swept away your sins like the morning mist…Oh return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free.” Isa. 44:21-22 “Listen to me…I created you and have cared for you since before you were born. I will be your God throughout your lifetime-until your hair is white with age. I made you and I will carry you along and save you.” Isa. 46:3-4 He made you for Himself. God does NOT continually punish for past sins! He paid for them and punished all if them on the CROSS. Be a slave to Him. I’m praying for you.

Are you a slave to the past?
Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!
“For who is God except The LORD? Who but our God is a solid Rock? God arms me with strength; He has made my way safe. He makes me as sure footed as a deer, leading me safely along the mountain heights. HE PREPARES ME FOR BATTLE! You, Oh God, have given me the shield of YOUR salvation. Your right hand supports me. YOUR GENTLENESS HAS MADE ME GREAT! You have armed me for battle.” Psalms 18:31-39. “I will bless The Lord who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me. I know The Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for HE IS RIGHT BESIDE ME! No wonder my heart is filled with joy and my mouth shouts His praises. MY BODY RESTS IN HIS SAFETY!” Ps. 16:7-9 “The Lord Lives! Blessed be my Rock! May the God of my salvation be exalted!! HE IS GOD.” Ps. 18:46 The victory is already won! So rest in Him. Have a great day. I’m praying for you.
Guilt or Faith?
It is clear enough, isn’t it, that we are sinners, everyone of us, in the same stinking boat with everyone else…Since we’ve complied the long sorry record as sinners and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, GOD DID IT FOR US. A pure gift! God sacrificed Jesus on the altar of the world…having faith in Him sets us free and clear. Jesus shed His blood, sacrificing His life for us… The fulfillment of God’s promise depends entirely on trusting God and simply embracing Him. FAITH IS THE KEY. God made something out of Abraham when he was nothing…because he dared to trust God. When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway. Because of his faith, God declared him righteous. God will declare us righteous too if we just believe!”Romans 3-5(The Message) Faith in Christ erases all guilt. Have a great day. I’m praying for you
“Oh, what a wonderful God we have. How great are His riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand His decisions and His methods! For all have sinned… Yet now God in His gracious kindness declares us NOT GUILTY. He has done this through Christ Jesus, who has freed us by taking away our sins. We can rejoice too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know they are good for us-they help us learn and endure…Let God transform you into a new person by changing the WAY YOU THINK. Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble and always prayerful. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love. When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us.” Romans 5,8,12. (NLT). God is able to make you strong! I’m praying for you.
Who is God?
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my Savior; my God is my rock in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the strength of my Salvation and my stronghold, my high tower, my Savior…In my distress I cried out to The Lord; yes, I called to God for help. He heard me. My cry for help reached His ears…He reached down from Heaven and rescued me…He led me to a place of safety; HE RESCUED ME BECAUSE HE DELIGHTS IN ME…O Lord, You are my light; yes Lord, You light up my darkness. In your strength I can crush an Army. As for God, His way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to Him for protection…For who is God except THE LORD? Who but our God is a solid rock?” 2 Samuel 22:2-51. Who is God? He is mine!
Have a good Sunday. Worship our Savior.
Don’t live like you are the worst. You are His best.
“Once we were foolish and disobedient. We were misled by others and became slaves to many wicked desires and evil pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy. But then God our Savior showed us His kindness and love. He saved us, not because of the good things we did but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins and gave us new life through the Holy Spirit! He generously poured out the Spirit upon us because of what Jesus Christ our Savior did. He declared us not guilty because of His great kindness. And now we KNOW that we will inherit eternal life.”Titus 3:3-7. “So we should not be like cowering, fearful slaves. We should behave like God’s very own children…For His Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us we are God’s children.”Rom. 8:15-16. “For the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you through Christ Jesus from the power of sin that leads to death…The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you! HE LOVES YOU. I’m praying for you.
Our world is loud and undependable!!! God the Father describes His Son in Matthew 12:18-21 “Look well at my handpicked Servant; I love Him so much, take such delight in Him; He will decree justice to the nations. But He won’t yell, won’t raise His voice; there will be no commotion in the streets. He won’t walk over anyone’s feelings, won’t push you into a corner. Before you know it, His justice will triumph; the mere sound of His name will bring hope…” See how very much the Father loves His Son!!! Yet God chose us over Jesus! Then when we seem consumed by loud, God’s Son gently and humbly brings us back to himself. Matthew is quoting Isaiah 42. Verse 4 says “He won’t tire out and quit. He won’t be stopped until He finishes His work!” This quiet and ever-present Jesus is continually lavishing us in His extreme love and bringing us back to Himself. “We thank you, O God! We give thanks because you are near.” Psalms 75:1. I’m praying for you. Have a great day.
