Surrender All to God 2/18/2021

The fear-mindset is filled with anxiety, guilt, and stress. You live thinking that there will never be enough—whether it’s money, food, time, resources—and as a result, your actions and thoughts stem from a place of lack. Instead of believing that God is good and will supply all your needs, you cling to what you can control.

Why would anyone ever want to live that way? What’s the solution? It’s found in becoming alive to give. The one truth I have seen over and over again in life is that we can never out give God. God doesn’t need anything from us. 

He owns the universe (Psalm 50:12), He has infinite resources at His disposal and He is the Ultimate “Giver (James 1:17). He spoke everything into existence and everything depends on Him. He lacks for nothing. 

It’s the incredible joy of God to give life and every good thing to those who seek Him. The God of the Bible is a God who loves to give. We can’t out give God.

God wants to pour out His peace, favor, and blessing into your life. He wants you to live to the fullness of your potential. But in order to do that, you have to open up your life fully to Him. When your life is in a place of shortage God can be trusted to provide everything you need. 

He has a solution to every shortage that you have, but the solution will always require faith.

Faith constantly makes a decision to not let fear drive us, but to trust in what God can do. It’s a decision that you will let go of your agenda, will, resources, and life in surrender to Christ.

As you open your life in surrender, you enter a place where you are now open to receive all that God wants to do in you and through you. When your hands are open you let go of the fear that ultimately had a hold on you.

Over and over I have seen God’s provision in tangible ways. He always moves to meet all your needs and provides in ways you never expected. Every need you have, God will pour His goodness into that area. 

Emotional needs. Spiritual needs. Relational needs. Financial needs. If you get your life in a position of faith you have no clue all that God will do through you.”

Be Perfect Like Him 2/16/2021

““Your ancestors have also been taught ‘Love your neighbors and hate the one who hates you.’ However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the one who hates you, and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them. 

For that will reveal your identity as children of your heavenly Father. He is kind to all by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil. 

What reward do you deserve if you only love the loveable? 

Don’t even the tax collectors do that? How are you any different from others if you limit your kindness only to your friends? Don’t even the ungodly do that? 

Since you are children of a perfect Father in heaven, you are to be perfect like him.””

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:43-48‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Serving One Another 2/13/2021

Mom in red building a puzzle at 88 with her friend, Judy.

“Christ served us consistently: Jesus was consistent in His love for us. He never wavered from His purpose to pursue us and die for us. 

We are to consistently pour ourselves out for each other in acts of love, doing for others what they cannot do for themselves. We’re to do this “with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,” just as Jesus loved us (Ephesians 4:2).

When we live like Paul and follow the example of Christ we make a difference. God’s plan is for us to partner with Him and partner with each other in order to fulfill His purposes. 

It’s only when we start to live for God’s greater purposes in life that we can start to really live.”

Spirit of Grace 2/12/2021

“As you yield freely and fully to the dynamic life and power of the Holy Spirit, you will abandon the cravings of your self-life. 

For your self-life craves the things that offend the Holy Spirit and hinder him from living free within you! 

And the Holy Spirit’s intense cravings hinder your old self-life from dominating you! 

So then, the two incompatible and conflicting forces within you are your self-life of the flesh and the new creation life of the Spirit. But when you are brought into the full freedom of the Spirit of grace, you will no longer be living under the domination of the law, but soaring above it!”

‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭TPT‬‬

The Holy Spirit Pleads for Us 2/11/2021

“For this is the hope of our salvation. But hope means that we must trust and wait for what is still unseen. 

For why would we need to hope for something we already have? 

So because our hope is set on what is yet to be seen, we patiently keep on waiting for its fulfillment. And in a similar way, the Holy Spirit takes hold of us in our human frailty to empower us in our weakness. 

For example, at times we don’t even know how to pray, or know the best things to ask for. But the Holy Spirit rises up within us to super-intercede on our behalf, pleading to God with emotional sighs too deep for words. 

God, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet he also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, his holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny. 

So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:24-28‬ ‭TPT‬‬

He Pursues Us 2/10/2021

“Jesus knows that we will never come alive to the life He came to bring us until He is at the center of our lives. 

We will live, but never be fully alive to all that God has for us. Apart from Jesus Christ we are dead. Not like zombies, but spiritually dead because through sin we have become separated from God who is the very source of life.

The hardest truth for anyone to admit is that we have all sinned. Not just a little, but a lot. 

Scripture reveals that we are so sinful, lost, and helpless that only the very Son of God, coming in the flesh and dying in our place, could allow our sins to be forgiven. 

Jesus is the only One who has the power to forgive us of all our sins because He is the One who took the punishment of God for our sins.

Through Christ, we are offered restoration and reconciliation with God. God takes that which is broken and dead within us and makes it new. He pursues us in order to establish an intimate relationship with us. 

This is the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ made the way to God for us by His death on the cross. He purchased our salvation by the shedding of His blood. His death and resurrection made a way for us to have a relationship with God.”
