CHArNGE IS INEVITABLE!

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your soul. Matthew 11:29

When you become a Child of God, you become a joint heir with Jesus Christ! Draw close to Him and He will draw close to you! (James 4:8).

He never promised life would be easy, but He promised to never leave or forsake you! The Lord faithfully makes available strength, comfort and rest 24/7.

If It is often during the challenging times, that you can actually grow the most, if you learn to enter the rest! God makes everything beautiful in His time. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:4.

Be encouraged! Change is inevitable, but personal growth is a decision! When you choose to stay yoked to the Lord, you will continue to grow regardless of what comes your way!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Help us Lord, to embrace the life we have now, and to enter the rest which you have already prepared. Teach us your way, and reveal your will. Strengthen us from the inside out. Help us to see where, and how, we need to change in order that we may grow into mature sons and daughters! Thank you for loving us with such marvelous love! Help us to love others as you love us! In Jesus name! Amen!

SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20.

We are all unique, with personal opinions, personal preferences, personal likes and dislikes! However, when it comes to the Word, no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20

God desires to reveal what HE means by what HE says, which He does by the Holy Spirit. As we pray and study with a sincere desire to know and understand, He opens the eyes of our understanding, and gives wisdom, clarity, and revelation of the scriptures. (Ephesians 1:18-23).

Answers to every question can be found in the Word, by searching the scriptures (James 1:4-8; John 7:39).

The Comforter which is the Holy Ghost, will teach you all things. He will bring it back to your remembrance when you need it! (John 14:26).

The Word explains and confirms the Word, and God’s will! This is why it is so important to seek God for answers and direction!

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to this people. Isaiah 28:10-11

The Word is Gods letter to His children. It is God’s desire for you to be saved and and baptized with the Holy Ghost and with Fire! (Matthew 3:11). He wants you to prosper and have good success in every area of your life! (3 John 2)

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 11:15.

Listen closely so you can hear Him speaking His special words of clarification and direction to you by His Spirit each day!

As you follow Him, He will always lead you on the right path to accomplish His purpose. He will also overload you with an abundance of blessings!

WHO ARE YOU FOLLOWING?

Simon Peter saith unto them, I go afishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. John 21:3

When Jesus called Peter to be His disciple, he had his own business but he wasn’t having much success at that moment! Jesus first did a miracle! He told him to launch out into the deep and let down his net!

Peter had toiled all night and caught nothing, nevertheless, at Jesus Word Peter gave it a try. He caught so many fish that he had to call the others to help.

Jesus told Peter to follow Him and from that day forth he would not be a fisher of fish, but of men. Peter left his business and worked with Jesus the rest of the time Jesus ministered on earth!

He saw how Jesus ministered! He witnessed many miracles, signs and wonders! However, he never had the full revelation of what was going on, or the plan of God for his life, until after Jesus returned to heaven! THEN, he watched as Jesus went to the cross and to the tomb BUT that He also came out hallelujah!

In the meantime Peter had said “I Go aFishin’ and the others said “We go with you!” So they followed Peter and went back to fishin’ for fish, and they caught nothing!

Jesus then appeared to the disciples, however at first He didn’t reveal himself to them. Jesus told them to cast their net on the RIGHT side of the boat and they would find fish. AND THEY DID! Peter realized it was Jesus. He leaped up and tried to cover himself for he was naked! He jumped into the sea.

Next their spiritual eyes were opened, and Jesus revealed that it wasHIM indeed. He didn’t rebuke or criticize them! He just told them to prepare a meal, and He stayed and talked with them awhile.

He asked Peter three times if he loved him. Peter said he did. He even told Jesus one of the times that Jesus knew he did love Him. Jesus told him to feed His sheep and lambs.

On the day of Pentecost, after tarrying for ten days in the upper room, the Holy Ghost descended and filled the 120 people in the room! Upon being filled with the Holy Ghost, the spiritual eyes of Peter’s understanding was opened. He became the spokesperson for the group, and began to walk in his calling! Peter exchanged his business for Gods good plan for his life!

If you give up your way and plans for Gods, everything you give up to follow Jesus and for the gospels sake, will be given back hundredfold NOW in this time (with persecutions), Plus eternal life in the world to come! (Mark 10:29-30)

The calling on Peters life did not end because of his return to his old business right after the crucification. Neither does the calling on your life, or mine, end as long as we are on earth!

Launch out in the deep and feed the sheep and lambs the way God instructs in the Word! The pulpit is not just in a church! Born Again Belivers are the church! The harvest field is the world 24/7.

FOLLOW JESUS! Don’t let anything or anyone cause you to go backward! Love others with Gods unconditional love as Gods loves you! His Holy Spirit will draw the broken, hurt, wounded, sick, dying and crying to you! As you let Him touch others through you, all that you need will be added to you!

A Prayer for today…
Help us Lord, as we carry on and move forward with kingdom business as your mouthpiece, hands and feet! Strengthen us to be, to do and to accomplish our assignment each day in your way, that others may come to know you. Amen.

VICTORY, IN JESUS NAME

The Lord will cause your enemies that come at you one way, to flee seven ways! Deuteronomy 28:7

WOW! This is a powerful scripture! God loves you! He will fight for you if you are hearkening to His Word and His will! Read Deuteronomy 28:1-14!

The devil roams about seeking whom, and what, he can devour, or destroy. As a Born Again Believer, you have been given authority to bind him, in Jesus name! You can render satan powerless so that nothing he tries to do will prosper against you, or that which pertains to you! (Matthew 16:19 and 18:18).

The Word coming forth from your mouth gives you the victory when you use the God given authority by faith, to bind satan! (Luke 10:19), Speak the Word in Jesus name! Watch what God will do by His Spirit! Enjoy your inheritance of unlimited blessings of peace, joy, health, provision and victory!

JESUS IN YOUR BOAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went. John 6:21

Jesus went into the mountain alone. Evening came and the disciples entered into a ship (without Jesus).

It became dark and Jesus still had not joined them. A great wind blew up a storm in the sea. The disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea, and getting close to the ship. They were afraid.

But Jesus saith unto them, It is I: Be not afraid. John 6:20

When they willingly received Jesus in the ship, immediately they were on the other side of the lake.

Do you need to go to the OTHER side of storms in your life? With JESUS in your boat you can!

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10.

Let go and let God! Trust Him! Suddenlies still happen!!!!!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY!
Heavenly Father, in the name of JESUS CHRIST, help us to invite and welcome you into every area of our life and every situation and decision pertaining to our life. It is in you and you alone, that we live, we move, and we have our being. You are awesome. Your ways are not our ways, neither are your thoughts our thoughts, but they are much higher … and they are the best. Help us as we surrender and allow you to work a perfect work in our life, by your Holy Spirit. We will give you all honor, all glory and all praise, in Jesus name!

REPENTANCE and PRAYER STILL CHANGES THINGS!

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

Forever Gods Word is settled in heaven! (Psalm 119:89). It shall all come to pass! It is quickly being fulfilled in numerous ways.

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19

Judge not, that ye be not judged. Matthew 7:1.
God is the one and only true judge of each and every one! He will judge righteous judgment according to what He sees and knows is in the heart!

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Ecclesiastes 12:13.

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4.

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Matthew 24:44.

REMEMBER THE TEN VIRGINS! (Matthew 25:1-13). Ten were watching for the return of the bridegroom! They were ready to go and went with Him when He came. Ten were not ready! They did not get to go!

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Matthew 25:1-13

JESUS IS COMING FOR HIS BRIDE! LIVE READY!

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE VICTORY

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work that ye may be perfect and entire wanting nothing. James 1:3-4 .

For our light (and also TEMPORARY) affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh FOR US a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are not; for the things that are seen are temporal (TEMPORARY) but the things which are not seen are eternal (FOREVER). II Corinthians 4:17, 18

Stay focused! Pray and make your decrees from the standpoint of victory that is sure, rather than focusing on the trial at hand, KNOWING that any trial you face today shall pass! Trust that you have the victory in Jesus name. GPraise the Lord!
