34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law— 36 a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ 37 “Anyone who loves their father … Continue reading Finding True Peace
Let my eyes be set upon Jesus, Upon Christ, will my sight be fixed. I will gaze deeply into His wonderful face, Upon His beauty, I will look adoringly at. Worries no longer matter when I look on Him, As I marvel at the Lord, all my fears vanish. The treasures of the earth pale … Continue reading Beholding the Beauty of God
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33 (King James Version) It is not easy to be a follower of Jesus Christ. That is because we live in a world … Continue reading We Overcome the World
When I am in your strong hand, I find rest, In the mighty hands of God, I have peace. Let my strength be the Lord's, May the work I do be fueled by His might. I will look at the job before and not fear, I won't despair over the task laid before me. For … Continue reading Having God’s Power
When the days become dark and worrisome,
When evil shades every aspect of my life.
I will turn to the Lord my God,
To my Savior will I seek deliverance.
For in the King of Kings do I find rest,
In the Lord of Lords will I find peace of mind.
With this peace I have hope for the day,
The day does not look bleak when in His grace.
So daily I will find nourishment in the Almighty,
Everyday will my sustenance be in My Lord and Savior.
For in Him, I find true peace that soothes,
I discover pure rest in the presence of my God.
The follower of Jesus Christ is called to be different. When the world says that we ought to be upset when things do not go our way, the believer must exercise peace in the face of difficulty. As the world tells us that we want to be angry and rage on when someone or something … Continue reading Be Something Different
Someone tell what sin is, Who can define the nature of it? Sin is something that is a part of us, Our very nature is laced with iniquity. Why is it so terrible for us, What is it about sin that God hates? While we have transgression, we are apart from the Almighty, The Lord … Continue reading Victory Over Sin in Christ
Worry is the biggest enemy to faith. It is birthed when we look at the things around us and fear what the consequences will be. It is fear of a future that we cannot know and no matter how hard we try to control it, no matter of control can soothe our worry.
The cure for worry is to look beyond the current circumstances and see that God is in control of it all. Recognize that the future, while unknown to us, the Lord knows it all has already placed contingencies that will make sure we will survive in the end. Remember that Lord is good in His nature and He will prepare us for whatever the future will hold. Therefore, let us cast out worry and embrace our God for He has our future in His hands.
Worries – Matthew 6:31-34
Why do I worry so?
When You the God of all hope
Is ever at my side
Why am I so worried for today?
What is it their words could do?
When the God of all mercy
Throws His protection over me
So I won’t worry for today
And place no worries on tomorrow
In this moment I place my trust in You
And keep faith that I’ll come through again
Why do we hesitate in taking part in God's ministry? Most of the time it is because we are afraid of the scope of the mission He has laid before us. How can we overcome our fears of serving God? We will examine the verse from Exodus 33 and see what God promises for His people.
I was alone in a dark and empty world, In the vast desolate wasteland I wandered aimlessly. My heart was full of sorrow and fear, Dread and despair filled my soul. I cried out in the void for salvation, Into the darkness I pleaded for deliverance. I heard nothing but my own echo, Only the … Continue reading Saved From The Wasteland
