A push without a fall!

Verse of the Day
I was pushed back and about to fall, but the LORD helped me. [NIV] Psalm 118:13
……..
This year we need to prepare ourselves to be pushed. The pushing may come through our desires to succeed in the plans we’ve set up for ourselves this new year. It may also come in the form of an opposition. Sometimes the extremities of the push may cause one to think of giving up. Don’t let it. The Lord say, yes the push may be so strong that it may result in one almost loosing their footing, their way, their vision, BUT He says, He will be there to help us. That He will be there to make sure we don’t fall and fail. Now that’s worth knowing! I don’t know about you, but as for me, this new year I will not let the forceful nature of the push derail me from my expected end! #VerseoftheDay #Devotional #Bible #NewYear #NewYearResolution #Jesus

His name your life Changer!

Verse of the Day

If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. [NKJV] John 14:14

Jesus Christ gave us a signed open cheque. That whatever we ask in His name, that is for our real good that is according to His will for us, that is for the glory of God, that He would do it for us. But you’re probably wondering, but how do I know what is good for me? How do I know what is according to God’s will for me and that will also bring Glory to God? Don’t you know that the will of God is not meant to be a secret we must uncover? No, Indeed, God wants us to understand His will far more than we want to understand it. He has always made His will very clear to us, to those of us who look to Him and are obedient to His commands. Aside from the facts that God wants us Saved (1 Timothy 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9), Spirit-filled (Ephesians 5:17-18), Sanctified (1 Thessalonians 4:3-7), committed to His word (1 Peter 2:13-15) and to understand that the journey is not for the faint hearted (Philippians 1:29; 2 Timothy 3:12), He also wants us to live in great health and prosper, even as our soul is prospering (3 John 1:2). So if you’re struggling in the area of your health, emotionally, physically, financially why don’t you ask Jesus’ help? He said He would, so don’t be shy about it. He wants you to be healthy and well. He wants you not to be in lack. There are so many wonderful things He wants for you, all you need do is find out for yourself what He wants for your life. And trust me God speaks, and clearly too. Stop suffering in silence and open your mouth and your heart to ask for His help; ask in the name of Jesus Christ, a name that is above every other name and He will do it for you. Don’t be shy? Ask and watch your change come! #Devotional #VerseoftheDay #Truth #God #Bible #Change #WillofGod #Name #Jesus #Christ

The Worst of them all

Verse of the Day

This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”–and I am the worst of them all. [NLT] 1 Timothy 1:15

…..

BUT He saved me. Trust me, there is no greater gift than this, and no greater peace than having this knowledge. There is no greater trouble, circumstance or problems in this life that should make any of us forget that in spite of everything, Jesus came to this world to save us. You may be experiencing some kind of loss, some kind of rejection, even hurt and resentment. But if you could but only think on this, your priceless gift of salvation, you will realise that everything else pales in comparison to this wonderful knowledge, this wonderful assurance, this wonderful acceptance, that Jesus didn’t just love you, He died to give you a fighting chance to become free. A fighting chance I say, because many still don’t realise that whatever battles they may be facing in life, because of the finished work of Christ on the cross; that automatically makes them an overcomer. That His death of the cross guarantees you victory! The question therefore is do you want to be free? Do you want to be victorious? Do you know that you can be victorious? Why don’t you try Jesus today, and I promise you, you will never regret that decision. I’m still having the time of my life. The journey may not be easy, but believe me, in Him, it will be all worth it! #Verseoftheday #Bible #Jesus #victory #victorious #Overcomer #Salvation #Saviour #Saved

Lost and Found

Verse of the Day

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” [NIV] John 16:33

…….

During my long trip today, I had the opportunity to be left alone with my thoughts. As I went back and forth through it all, without the demands of a toddler asking me why the TV channel was fixated at the wrong one, or why his food is not quite to the temperature he prefers, I am reminded of a time long gone, and how it is now, the journey in between and how far the Lord has brought me. The future is not certain or guaranteed to any person, indeed it is not promised to any man, but I know of one who knows the future. And when you have Him with you, you can go through the journey of life with an unshakable hope that your future is secure at the hands of “the future maker”, Jesus! I don’t know what you might be struggling with in your present. Maybe the outlook is so bleak that you’ve considered giving in and ending it all. If you did, you will never get to see the glorious plans He has for your life. Yes challenges will come, but Jesus promises you that you will be victorious! Now that is the benefit having Him with you makes to your life’s experiences. I am a living testimony of that fact and truth. You may have lost your way, confused and at your wits end. But I am here to tell you, that having Jesus with you makes all the difference. He is the difference. And with Him, He is your only hope of Glory, and your guarantee to life, and life everlasting. Why don’t you try Jesus Today, He has all the answers to the burning questions keeping awake when you should be at rest. #Verseoftheday #Bible #Devotional #LostAndFound #Jesus #FutureMaker #JourneyFinisher #VictoriousLiving #Christ #HopeofGlory #Glory
