Set Free To Serve – Part 8

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness” (Jeremiah 31:3).

As amazing as it may seem, it is not unusual to find people doing all kinds of unnecessary “work” in the church. Maybe they are trying to reach a level of acceptance in God’s eyes or seeking to please another person. Striving to gain the approval of others is stressful at best. Trying to gain God’s approval is useless. This is because God has already placed His stamp of approval on your life and nothing you do can cause Him to love you more than He does right now.

When you accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour, you gain everything there is to gain of God’s love. Even before you were created in your mother’s womb, God loved you fully and completely. This world has nothing of lasting value to offer us. All of our striving and rushing to gain approval results in only one thing: emptiness of heart and soul.

Satan’s greatest folly is to tempt us into believing that through our good works or our smart appearance someone will love us more. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Don’t allow the enemy to entice you into believing you are unacceptable. God accepts you just the way you are. All He longs for you to do is to love Him with a whole heart. When you truly understand your acceptance in Christ and experience the everlasting love of God, you will obey the Lord as an expression of your love. You have been set apart to serve Him, the Most High God.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for loving me even when I act unlovable. Forgive me for the times when I turn away from You. Help me to surrender my life to You daily. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Your Promotion

Promotion processes are usually time consuming. However, they are required for the ultimate result.

It is God that wants to lead His children in the pathway of promotion. He has a purpose and a destiny for our lives. Now it is up to us to determine if we become promoted into the plan or position or not. Did you know that you were chosen in Him and not an accident because God foreknew you; (Jeremiah 1:4-5)

It does not matter where we are in life, who we are or what our conditions may currently be, God can and will promote you. Two tests come before promotion; the test of humility found in Proverbs 15:33 and that of faithfulness Matthew 24:45, Matthew 25:21. Are you ready for your promotion? 

Prayer: Father, I banish all forms of laziness preventing me from being ready for my promotion. Lord help me to wake up to the consciousness of your Word in Jesus name.

Have no Confidence in the Flesh

Take a moment and reflect on this; are there things you need to stop putting your confidence in? Is your confidence upon your intelligence, your contacts, family or personal strength? Cursed is the person who depends on another being for strength. Such a person will not see prosperity when it comes knocking. Every opportunity to prosper from God will elude the person. This person will dwell in the perched places of the desert.

Beloved, life on a desert can be very difficult one and the consequencies of placing trust in man could be very dissastrous, regardless of whom they are, it leads to terrible dissapointments and failure. (Jeremiah 17}

When we start to do things God’s way instead of our own way, we experience great benefits. We have peace, freedom and awesome power..
Make up your mind today to place your confidence in the one and only God.

Prayer: Father this is the season of my favor, answer me, O Lord, and grant the request of my heart.

Recession is not for Christians

The Bible states clearly that in the period of recession Christians are supposed to flourish (Psalm 37:18). Jeremiah 17:7 states that “But blessed is the one who trust in the LORD, whose confidence is in HIM. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out it’s root by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes;its leaves are always green.It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruits.”

The same goes for a man who is deeply grafted in the WORD of the LORD. Those whose trust remain in the LORD will never be moved by the ongoing recession as GOD is their source who is faithful,certain,sure and dependable every time.

Prayer:
Father make possible all that men thought is impossible in my life even before their eyes, lead me through every darkness as you are my light and reveal to me deep and hidden treasures of this world, in Jesus name.

May the Lord bless you mightily.

How to Prosper!

If you mediate on what Psalms 37:18 and Jeremiah 17:8 state, you will descern that the will of God is that during a resounding recession Christians should really begin to prosper. I want you to consider this today and put your life in line with the scriptures (WORD) trusting that HIS promises will be fulfilled in your life.

Prayer: Lord make possible all that men thought is impossible in my life, even before their very eyes. Amen.

MAY God bless you mightily.

BEGIN TO PUT YOUR TRUST IN GOD!

Jeremiah 17:7- It says that blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.

Beloved, a man that trusts God is a man that is deeply grounded in His word no matter the situation that confronts him/her. Consider a tree root that finds the source of a stream, such tree would be very firm and immovable. Such a tree will never dry up, regardless of the weather. So is a man that trusts God completely even in adverse times.

He will not be anxious when the drought comes — Hallelujah!

BEGIN TO PUT YOUR TRUST IN GOD.
