A New Heart

Ezekiel 36.pngI will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.                     Ezekiel 36:26

Therefore if any person is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!                                                     2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Jesus tells us to come just as we are with all of our short comings, and he will give us a new heart and put a new spirit within you and me. He is aware of the many little different things that may changes the beauty of our hearts. He wants us to Trust him to do what we are unable to do, remove the stony bits one by one. Do not expect this work in you or me to be painless. Heart surgery is serious, and it always involves pain. Many of the hard things you have experienced were, unknown to him. Jesus skillful operations on our heart. When we go through those very difficult times we need to look up to him with a smile and thank him for the renewal that he is working within us. This act of faith does not instantly stop you or me from suffering, but it does lend meaning to our pain. Marvel at the wonder of being a new creation grafted into Jesus–the Messiah. You and me are forever set free from the condemning law of sin and death. I can rejoice in this glorious truth even while I am suffering because I am not alone. Since God our Creator of all that is, and has made me in his image, I have a wealth of creative powers within me. I need to strive to look at my situation from a fresh perspective, eager to collaborate with Christ as he is making those necessary changes within me and even you. Through God the Lord of the universe, he desire to work in partnership with us. As we say yes to this sacred adventure, I know that in time I will become the person that God have design me to be as I continue to Praise the “Great I Am”

Who’s Your Dad?

Hebrews 10.pngThe Apostle Paul wrote in the book of Hebrews 10:32-37  Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. you suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. So do not throw away your confidence, it will be richly rewarded. You need to perseveres so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, in just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.

I know as a Christian woman things never seems easy for us and at times we may say is it all worth it in the end! The way others judge us make fun of our live style not knowing at all who is our daddy. I am not saying the man who gave you life along with your mom and of course with the help of God, I am asking you who is your daddy? Why is it then that the ones of this world seem to have less of heartaches at times than people who is of the Christian faith? Let me tell you this, that you and I are in great company with the believers who went before us, their were the apostles, who all died for their beliefs with serving Christ, and even other believers of today, and even Jesus himself was persecuted because he love us all and he was a man without sin.  People around the world go to great lengths to make sure more will hear about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Who is this man call the Christ let me tell you, He is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last. He is and always will be, the Great I Am.  Jesus is the Bread of Life, The Light of the World, He is the Gate to keep true harm away. He is the Good Shepherd, The Resurrection and the Life, He is the Way and the Truth and the Life, Jesus is the True Vine. He is the Creator of us all, He is Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit entwine into one. Jesus took our pain on the cross, and bore our suffering. Pierced for our iniquities, and by his stripes, and I am saying the whipping he took upon his back that broke his flesh for all of mankind. He was led like a lamb to be slaughter and he remind silent by oppression and judgement he was taken away. You need to understand this our world can’t understand him, armies can’t defeat him and death could not hold him. Even in the world of today the schools can’t explain to our children who this “Great I Am” is. The leaders of today, they can try to ignore him but somehow it will creep in once again who this Christ truly is. No matter what anyone could try to even do, you could never and I mean NEVER erase the name of Jesus Christ, for everyone the world thinks could destroy their will be at least one hundred more to continue to tell others the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As for me I will continue to preach the words of Christ for all to hear: Never will he leave me and Never will he forsake me, when I am depress and feeling lonely his is my comforter, when my pain overwhelms me at times he will help carry my burdens, and he will walk by myside in my journey of life. His love never fails and no sins that I commit or any of my tomorrows will he stop loving me, when I call on His name, their is never a busy signal and he always answer me. Jesus is Yahweh, I Am that I Am, Jehovah, Immanuel, Jesus the Christ, Supreme Being, Creator, Elohim, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, El Roi, the One who sees You, Jehovah Nissi, the One Who Stands Guard Over You, Jehovah Shalom: The One Who Gives you Peace. All consuming fire: The God who is jealous for you. El Elyon: The One Who is the God Most High:, He is my Abba, Father! my daddy. There is nothing that can ever separate me from his love not death, nor life, either angles, nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creations will be able to separate me from the love I have in my Dad! “The Great I Am” He was and is to come into all of creations, and my love for him will never cease in this life or the life I will have in all of eternity when I see him face to face.

So who is Your Dad?

Are You Able?

Jeremian 32.jpgIn the Gospel of Matthew a man came up to Jesus and ask “Teacher , what good thing must I do to get eternal life? Why do you ask me about what is good? Jesus replied, There is only One who is good. If you want to eternal life, keep the commandments.” Which ones? he inquired. Jesus replied. “You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself. All things I have kept, the young man said. “What do I still lack? Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. The Jesus said to his disciples. “truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven, Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God”. When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved”? Jesus looked at them and said. “With man this impossible, bit with God all things are possible.”

Matthew 19:16-26

There are many people even Christians that are not willing to change their lives for Jesus, for me at times it is hard to understand how they would not be willing. We have become a nation that is so focus on material things and not spiritual things. For whatever reason everyone one wants the fancy cars, bigger houses, more vacation time, become work alcoholic and never spend anytime with their families and why because we have to have everything we see, guess what everyone we have created monsters within our own children.  With each passing generations most families spend less and less time with each other, eat fast food instead of someone preparing a meal and sit down at a dinner table and have good old-fashion table talk. There is a lot to be learn when doing so, learning about your child that God has created. We as adults are not teaching our children to have a personal relationship with Christ, and for the most part it is because most adults do not either. Instead of taking sometime out of their busy lives on a Sunday and spending time worshipping our Heavenly Father, they have become too busy for God, guess what when the day you leave this world, where do you think that you will be spending eternally with God? You better think of a better answer because God may said too most of us here on earth, sorry I am too busy for you, come back another time and there is not another time for you, it will be too late. However when we do decide to accept Jesus into our hearts as our Lord and Savior, we begin to seek and by seeking I mean read scriptures and a pray life with God. And overtime God changes us from the inside out, like Jesus tells us with man it is impossible to do that on our own, however with God all things are possible. So what are you waiting for start now, remember no one is promise tomorrow, it just maybe too late for some.

Becoming A Prayer Warrior

Luke 6.jpgWhat is pray?, it is a conversation that we have between us and God. Pray is an important tool in the life of a Christian, and without this it is impossible for us to grow close with God and have a Spiritual Life with the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. Through out the Scriptures both in the Old and New Testament we read about the great prophets and their pray life. As we look into the life of Jesus, he knew how important one’s pray life is.  Very early in the morning while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.                                                 Mark 1:35

One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he designated apostles.                                                         Luke 6:12-13

But when you pray go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.                                                                                         Matthew 6:6-8

Some of you may say to yourself, why should I even pray if God is who he says he is and knows all, why should I even pray then. The answer is simply, God longs a relationship with all of his children and we do that thru prayer. When you have something of great importance don’t you go and meet with your friends, or family member and share in with all of your joys and sorrows? your answer would be of course, so why not go to God with all of your joys and sorrows and not just someone close to you. If there is ever a time you just don’t know what to say, or even the words don’t come easy at that very moment, no need to worry because the Holy Spirit will intercede on your behalf. God wants you to watch in hope as you wait for Him, your Savior. The longer we have to wait, the more we must learn to trust Him and him alone. If you feel a little anxious, seek his help as Jesus my Lord and Savior, here I sit and wait, wait for your peace within my soul, I love you father however at this times the words come hard to find. Your words just needs to be simply and you don’t need to go on and on, just talk with him as you would your friend. During our prayer time we need to confess to God any of our wrongs doing, God is a forgiven Father, and he will love you regardless of what you have done. Knowing that God forgives us allow us to forgive someone who has hurt us in any what shape or form. Pray for others as you would pray for yourself or a family member, in praying for someone else will also allow you to draw close to your Heavenly Father. We are all here on earth to help one another and if the only way you can help is thru your prayers, don’t worry yourself because that is the best thing you and I can ever do is to pray. We need great Prayer Warriors here on earth to bring peace to our world, no the only one that can change a human beings heart is God and not us however we can ask God to do his will. Humble yourself and ask God to see if there is anything within you that he needs to change for you to become the person he as created you to be and believe me he can and he will.

Praise God for all you have and trust Him for all you want!        (By John Wesley)

You who are born of God according to the marks laid down in His Word well know that you are His children. Your hearts assured before Him. Everyone who has observed these marks can sense and know of a truth at this very moment whether, in the sight of God, you are His child. The question is not anything else: What are you now? Is the Spirit of adoption now in your heart? Make the appeal to your own heart: Are you now the temple of the Holy Spirit? He now dwells within you.

Lord Jesus!

May everyone who prepares his or her heart to seek Your face receive that Spirit of adoption and be enabled to cry out “Abba!” Father” Let them now have power so to believe in Your name as to become children of God and know and sense redemption through Your blood and the forgiveness of sins.

Amen

Faith

2 Corinthians 5.jpgDuring this difficult time for many in the path of another hurricane these words from the Apostle Paul in the book of 2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith and not by sight.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.                                                 Hebrews 12:2

Jesus’ light shines on you continually, whether you are aware of it or not. During the night, your thoughts can be ones of afraid, nervousness, doubt, and fear. Although you may feel as if you are in complete darkness remember that you are never alone, Jesus is with you thru the night, and thru those times that fear reaches out to you and simply grab a whole of you, remember he does understand what you are feeling at that very moment. Jesus loves for you never and I mean never fails you. You need the light of his everlasting present more than you need the light of the new day. When the way before you is very dark you can still trust him to guide you. Walking by faith is akin to using radar to discern the way you should go. Instead of trying to see through the clouds of uncertainty up ahead, fix your eyes on the Master. He can show you a way forward when there appears to be none. Moreover, as you strive to stay in communication through your prayers, your soul begins to open up to Jesus. Even in the midst of your fear, struggles his loving presence can fill your soul with warm delight.

 

Dear Heavenly Father:

We know that you are the “Great I AM” the Alpha & Omega of all things, I ask for you to be everyone and anyone who maybe in the midst of this horrible storm approaching our land. I ask you the give them your peace, not as the world gives, but only you can give to each and everyone of your children.

In Christ Name I Pray

Amen
Grace and Peace to You My Friends

Another Chance

Jeremiah 15.jpgWe serve an Awesome God, he is a God who always gives us another chance, over and over again no matter how hard we seem to mess things up. Lets read the parable that Jesus shared in the Gospel of Luke on the Prodigal Son:

Luke 15:11-32 11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So ,he divided his property between them. 13″Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. 17” When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. 21″The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22″But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So, they began to celebrate. 25″Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27  Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’ 28″The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So, his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’ 31″‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again he was lost and is found. 

Why does Jesus tells us this parable in the Gospel of Luke it is because he is a God who is always willing to forgive you and me, regardless of our mistakes, and because he knows our heart. Perhaps as you are reading this right now, you are saying to yourself, I really mess up big this time, I can start over, God will never forgive me, I am not worthy of it. Yes God can and he does, we are always allow to begin over with each new day. You see my friend today is called “Present” which is a gift from God, and how you use it will be your gift back to God. Yesterday is done and over we can not change anything with it, tomorrow well, that is not promise to any of us at all but here we stand at a new day call “Present” use it wisely, and remember Jesus has already forgiven you, now forgive yourself of your mistakes.

Trials

Galatians 5aConsider it all joy when you encounter various trials. You can consider something a joyful opportunity even when you are feeling quite joyless. Some definitions of “consider” are: to think about seriously: to regard  as to believe after deliberation. You may need to ponder your circumstances at length before you can view them in positive light. You need to give yourself time for your feelings to settle down. It’s hard to think clearly with the high levels of emotions surging through your brain. Once you have calmed down, you will be able to think seriously about your situation. Invite Jesus into the process of deliberation and His presence will improve your perspective helping you see your trials in the light of eternity. As you look at your circumstances from Jesus perspective you come to understand that these multiple problems are testing your faith. As you endure your trials through your life remember to share your trials and problems with others so that you can go to God in prayer and by doing so your burdens feel so much lighter than before.

Jesus wants you to experience more fully the greatness of his overflowing love. A you open yourself to his compassionate presence, this love of his flows into you more freely.
