GOD KNOWS YOUR NAME

Isaiah 49Isaiah was a prophet from the Old Testament, and the most eloquent of the prophets, Isaiah, analyzed the failures of all the nations around him and pointed to a future Messiah who would bring peace to the nation and the earth. As I read the book of Isaiah chapter 49:15-16 this is what it says: Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she borne? Through she may forget, I will never forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands. When we as humans go thru the difficult times we seem to begin to wonder does anyone care about me, does anyone care if I’m live or die, I know most of us have said these words if not out loud so that someone else could hear them, we have said them to ourselves.  Let me tell you my friends, you are a Child of the Most High King Jesus Christ, you are apart of the best royal family that anyone can ever be apart of it, and it doesn’t matter where you family came from, rather you were born a rich person or a poor person or anything in between. All of you who are reading these words need to know and understand that it doesn’t matter who you are, what your past is like, what you may have done, the sins we have committed in the past or in the future God loves YOU! he sent his one and only son into the world to died for all of our sins, so that once we leave this earth we will be united with him for all of eternity and that is one family that you belong to forever and ever. There is more to your life than you ever thought. There is more to your story than what you have read. You have some much to give to others, God the God of the Universe has created you for a reason, you just need to figure that small part out. God took the time to shape you and mold you for his own purpose, a job that only you can do and no one else. Your life matter regardless of what anyone may of said to you, you do have a purpose, you are special. Turn your eyes upon Jesus, and see him shining brightly on your future. When you are weak or weary, just call upon him and he will hear you. God is preparing a place in his kingdom for all of his children, you do not need to worry. There is joy in knowing the Risen Lord Jesus Christ and he delights in you now, but this joy will be astronomically magnified when you join him in glory. The joy you will experience in heaven is so far beyond anything you have known on earth that it is indescribable. Nothing can rob you of this glorious inheritance. But, in the mean time while you are still on earth remember how much that Jesus loves “YOU” and their is nothing you will ever go thru that is he unaware of, he knows of the joys you will have as well as the many sorrows and trials that you will endure, but never doubt for a single second that

“GOD KNOWS YOU NAME'”

THE ARMOR OF GOD

Isaiah 43 a.jpgBut now, this is what the Lord says, he who created you Jacob, he who formed you, Israel. Do not fear, for I have redeemed you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.                                                       Isaiah 43:1-2

Through you go thru difficulty times, God always shows compassion on his children. No matter what trials that you are facing at this very moment, you can count on God’s love and his compassion to see you thru. There are many times during the life of a Christian that we seem to face so many difficult times, and believe me when I tell you that you can feel that you are being attack from every side. When one problem in your life seems to arise and you feel that you have handle it, guess what here comes another, and then another for any of us, and guess what we are being attack. If we take a look into the book of Ephesians Chapter 6:10-17 the Apostle Paul tells us we need to put on the Full Armor of God and he is why: “Finally be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full Armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggles is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything to stand. Stand firm, with the belt of truth buckles around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

These words from Paul I continue to remind myself on a daily basis to get thru the day. You see is that Satan cannot stand for us to have a walk with the Risen Lord Jesus Christ, he loves to tear families apart anyway he possibly can, he wants to destroyed anyone lives by his lies he tells to anyone, however we cannot let him to it. This is why all of us need to put on the Full Armor of God each and everyday of our lives here on earth. It is very important for all of us to stay in the word of God not just when we feel like it, but everyday because when we don’t feel like to read that one day that is when Satan will attack us so that we become lazy and off track but we cannot let him, he may win a battle now and then however in the end HE WILL NEVER WIN THE WAR, Good will always win over evil, you just need to remember that. When you are suffering and your troubles seem endless, remember that Jesus is tenderly present in your afflictions. Instead of lamenting the way things are, search for Jesus in the wreckage of adversity. You will not fail to find the Risen Lord when you search for him with all of your heart. Jesus wants his children to experience more fully the greatness of his overflowing love. As you open yourself to his compassionate presence, this love flows into you more freely. We need to continue to stay in fellowship with Christ as well as with other Christians to continue to grow and to be able to serve one another. As you and I stay focus on our Risen Lord while go thru our trials they will not drown us or overcome us in anyway. Pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18
