Great Is The LORD’s Faithfulness

from E-Courage Ministries

 

 

 

Lamentations 3:21-23 

“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.  It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness”

If we got caught up in the headlines like many, we might be discouraged right now.   Many things that people had faith in, is failing them.  If our faith was based  on those things, we would be pulling our hair out!  But thank GOD for His faithfulness toward us.  He is the ultimate promise keeper,  the ever faithful one, who supplies our needs in the middle of tight times. Great is His faithfulness, whose provisions won’t run out, He’ll never be bought out, nor will His stocks crash.  It’s times like these when others will ask “Why aren’t you worried?”  “What gives you so much peace?”  It’s an opportunity for us  to declare His faithfulness.

Psalm 37:3  “Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed”

Psalm 9:9-11 (Amplified Bible)
“The Lord also will be a refuge and a high tower for the oppressed, a refuge and a stronghold in times of trouble (high cost, destitution, and desperation).     And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity]. Sing praises to the Lord, Who dwells in Zion! Declare among the peoples His doings! ”

A New Thing

from E-Courage Ministries

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A New Thing………..

“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland”(Isaiah 43:18-20 NIV)

Don’t expect the Lord to keep doing the same old thing!  If we keep doing the same thing we’ll get the same results.  If we get into a routine relationship with the Lord, we may miss the new thing He’s trying to do in our lives. Have you ever just gone through the motions, just doing something out of habit?  It’s like someone who eats at the same place, having the same meal every weekend, they’re tired of the same food, but are to timid to try something new.   Some thing’s are going to take more faith then we’ve ever had in our lives, require more obedience, boldness,love and most of all trust.   “As for God, His way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him” (Psalm 18:30) When the Lord told Peter to step out onto the water, Peter had no clue how to do it, all he had was the Lord’s word “Come” to stand on.  If we trust the Word of the Lord and keep our eyes on Him, we’ll be ready for our whatever comes our way. A new business idea may not have a previous model to go by, if God gave the idea, He’ll see it through.  New things may cause us to break some old molds! Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” We won’t get extraordinary results from doing the same old thing!

Can’t Stay The Same

from E-Courage Ministries

  Romans 12:2(Amp)

Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be
transformed
(changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. How can we enter into the presence of a Holy God and remain the same?  Hang around Him all the the time but still walk in our ways? That’s a hard fight! A stubborn will, prevents us from truly becoming a new creation. Holding onto things that hinder our growth in Christ can cause us to be stuck! If you’ve ever seen the movie “Transformers” in order for them to be useful to those they served, they had to change all of the way, or they had noreal power. If the enemy can get us to be comfortable in our ways, we’d end up like a half bloomed flower, never realizing our full potential or beauty in God’s garden.
Ephesians 2:10(Amp)

For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. In order for us to be effective for the Lord, we can’t stay the same!

Change Is A Choice

from E-Courage Ministries

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new”.(2 Corinthians 5:17)

 Have you ever heard someone  pray “Lord take this desire from me” but still continues  to place themselves in the same situations? Could the Lord do it, yes. But the Lord forces nothing on us, even change. We have to choose to change.  We have to make the  decision to do His will, He won’t do it for us.   Even if we’re tempted, He makes a way of escape for us, but we must choose to use it.  If  there was a fire, most people know to look for the emergency exit. It’s  usually a big red  reflective sign   posted in public venues. But if we never open the door to safety, what good is it?  “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it”(1 Corinthians 10:13) 
 Our way of escape is there in big bold letters “JESUS”.  Through this emergency exit is our newness.  The enemy wants us to keep picking up the old ways, doing the same old thing, therefore getting the same old result.   Change takes more than words, it takes us yielding  and applying   Gods wisdom to our lives on a daily basis.  It starts in our hearts.  ” Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:” Psalm 139:23  “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10)

Dare To Dream Again!

from E-Courage Ministries

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Psalm 130:5 (AMP)5 I wait for the Lord, I expectantly wait, and in His word do I hope.

Have you ever given up on a dream? Lost hope? A synonym for hope is envision! To picture oneself doing . See it before you get there.  Daydreamer, is usually used in anegative manner, but one of the synonyms for this is vision! Some of the greatest visionaries are children,why?  Because they only see the promise ahead,they don’t allow current situations or circumstances or difficulties to kill their hope.If satan can kill our dreams he will kill our expectation from God.  

If we commit :  Proverbs 16:3(AMP)3 Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.

 

Don’t lose hope or delay:  Proverbs 13:12(AMP)12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.

Don’t just expect pursue:   Luke 8:43 And a woman who had suffered from a flow of blood for twelve years and had spent all her living among physicians, and could not be healed by anyone, 44 Came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His garment, and immediately her flow of blood ceased.

Diligence goes hand in hand with destiny.  The woman had to envision herself healed in order to pursue pass the pain, and the discouragement of what she was facing at the moment.  She had a hope that took her past what she saw. Even though something may have failed, didn’t turn out like we may have wanted, dare to dream again…………………

Five Things To Live By

by Dr. Erick Travis Hall Sr. Ph.D.

Just as words were spoken over Christ before his inception, scripture speaks words over you and me too. We are not the Savior of the world, but we are meant to live and thrive in his service. Understanding our own scriptural “prophesies” is key to fully embodying our God given potential. There are five promises God wants each of us to know today. Even though we may already be able to recite them by heart, really believing and living them can still be a challenge. So I invite you to read these words anew, words that were written about you long before your birth in our Bible. Remember “Trying” is the future excuse, for something that you already know, that you are not going to do! So, Just Do It…

1. God loves you unconditionally. We live in a sinful world that is fraught with conditional promises and relationships. Sometimes even those closest to us let us down. Despite this reality, our greatest need is to be loved unconditionally. We want to be loved with a perfect, sacrificial, forever kind of love in spite of our faults by someone who knows us intimately. Further, we want to be supported and inspired by that love to not only become better people, but to also leave lasting impressions on this earth. (Build & Leave A Legacy)

God provides us with that as no one else can. That’s what theologians have meant over the years by saying that we have a God-shaped hole in our heart; there’s a space we were created with that only God can fill. And the love we were made to need is strong and unshakable. The Apostle Paul, who founded the early church, writes, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).That love claims you by faith. Wherever you are feeling unloved today, drink it in.

2. You are redeemed and have an eternal home in heaven. When I served in the Military Auxiliary at Abundant Living Family Church , Psalm 121 was the most popular scripture read at bedsides of Veterans. That’s because the psalm describes God as our unfailing Protector who gives us an eternal home. The psalmist reassures us, “The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand…The Lord will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” We worship a God who never leaves us, and he wants a relationship with us both in this life and beyond. We have been blessed with the promise of heaven through faith in Jesus Christ. It is by his blood that we have been washed clean and accepted by our holy God. This redemption plan was Christ’s assignment, and it was all done in love (John 3:16). And the Holy Spirit is calling you today, reminding you of all God has done for you and wants to be in your life. Look to him, hold his hand, experience his salvation.

3. God formed you with intention and knows you intimately. The God who crafted creation and its redemption plan through Jesus also crafted you. The psalmist praises God’s handiwork in Psalm 139 by saying, “For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” God created you intentionally, and you are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Not only are you God’s masterpiece, but God has a special plan for your life that even spans to the number of your days. The psalmist continues, “Your eyes beheld my unformed substance. In your book were written all the days that were formed for me, when none of them as yet existed.”This means your existence is no mistake. God did not make any wrong moves. Isn’t it amazing that the Creator of the universe knows you and formed you specially himself? (Even after all the Abuse we have taken in this life, we can say “I am Still Here!”) Somebody know what I am talking about! lol

4. God’s plan for your life is to prosper you, not to harm you. Our world knows brokenness and sin, but God knows hope and restoration. One of my favorite verses in scripture is Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” God’s plan for your life includes hope and a prosperous future, or one in which you thrive. Psalm 103 lists many ways that God wants to bless you. The psalmist exclaims, “Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”God is invested in your well-being and working toward your renewal, wholeness, and healing daily. In addition to blessing us, God has big dreams for our lives and beckons us to follow. Obedience often requires faith and risk, but God will delight in your dependence on him and always be there to support you. (Never Forsaking Us)

5. You have special strength available to you through faith. The best resource that’s available to you is the power of Christ. If you are facing an uphill battle, repeat this verse to yourself frequently: “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). God will never call you to a place and leave you unattended. Be assured that the God who has numbered the hairs on your head is fighting for you. His favor will surround you like a shield (Psalm 5:12). You have an insurmountable ally in our God — for if God is for you, who can be against you (Romans 8:31)? When you boldly claim this truth with expectation, you give God the space and invitation to show his glory. I just watched             “Passion Of Christ” for like the fifth time and each time, can’t stop from tearing up for “How He Died For Our Sins!” God in His Deity, put on Flesh and walked with us, Only to be Tortured in His Humanity To Save Us From Our Sins, So We Could Not Perish But Have Eternal Life With Him!” WOW! STILL MIND BLOWING

Look at the Shape of this World????

We have a Funny way of Repaying Him, Don’t you Think?!!!

Anyway, I am done Preaching for the Day……..You Get My Point!!!!!

Remember, To PRAY America Forward To One Nation Under GOD!

Peace, Love & God’s Blessings to Us All.
