Prospect, Prosperity,Provision

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Proverbs 10:28
The hopes of the godly result in happiness, but the expectations of the wicked come to nothing.

Matthew 6:25-34

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or What shall we wear?mFor the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Blessings

What are we grateful for? What are we thankful for? What do we deserve? Who are we here to please? 
When you answer these questions with whole hearted honesty. What you choose will show who and what you believe in. God or man. Faith, humility, humbleness should all be part of your repertoire. Because in the end, the love of God, self and family cannot be replaced.

The Land Yields It's Harvest

There is so much abundance in this country. You have to wonder why there are those for whatever reason, are struggling and doing without.. During the days of Jesus it seems the people suffered similar plights. God sees all. Mankind with his greedy and vile ways is usually destroyed. By saving grace not all are reciveiving of that fate.

Psalm 67: 6-7
The land yields its harvest;
    God, our God, blesses us.
May God bless us still,
    so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.

Listen To The Word

James 1:22
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

The Time Is Now

In this day and time it is very easy to put off the important things. Telling someone that you love them. Asking Gods forgiveness. Etc. Etc. Do these things today. God doesn't put anything off. He's always in action. So should we

Am I Deserving?

Trials and tribulations last a lifetime. It is how we deal with them that is  important. We are saved by Faith. Knowing that through Jesus it will be so.
Psalm 69 :1
Save me o Lord for the waters have come to my neck.

It's Easier To Stay In The Safe Place

Jesus was never safe. He most definitely was a rebel with a serious cause. He carried it out to the end. How many would do such a thing?

Through The Storm

Where is your faith in the midst of a storm? 
 

Matthew 8:24-26

Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”

He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.

Store Up Your Treasures In Heavan

How many place their value and worth on material things? Answer: so many you cannot count.
This is what God says. 
Matthew 6:19-24

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Just Care

We are living in a unempathetic dying world. If we don't embrace God. If your choice is to to accept Jesus as your savior. Then life is different for you than someone who has.

Do Not Worry

Matthew 6:25-26

Do Not Worry

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.Are you not much more valuable than they?  Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Under Attack


1Corinthians 10:13
 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

Believing When Nothing Makes Sense

God has a way of slowing you down to make you see and understand what is being taught. There are many disbelievers. Many who ask questions. Why. Many blame themselves for the faults of the world. Many blame others. Everyone has choices. As a believer in God we know what is promised to us. Through Jesus all things are possible.

No Matter Your Age God Is With You

Too young to believe ? Too Old to tell about what God has done for you? God is in your life anyway. You have a choice to accept or not.

Faith Restores

Standing on the cusp of the seemingly impossible . Knowing with all of your being that you have a mighty God. And that your service does not go unseen.

God, Jesus, Right, Wrong

There is a major shift in the world. Evil is not going to rule forever. The toppling of the " empire" will implode. As it has time after time. The Bible gives a vivid history of the down fall of great nations. Egypt, Rome many others. We have to recognize who is really in control. It is not man. I'm sure man would not have wanted to parish in those troubled days.

God Would Not Love Me Any Less

Our relationship with God is an individual one. God should not be forced on any one. Let that be an indidual choice. Lastly judgement should not be up to us, rather instead let God handle that.

Bound By The Spirit

Just when you think things couldn't get any worse. Just when you think you are at your lowest point. God comes shining through. It takes making those right decisions. It takes not letting the enemy convince you that your outcome will be  anything like the past. It takes a tremendous amount of faith to see yourself through to the other side of a rough patch. God has you once you have made up your mind who he is and what he can do.

Who's In The Drivers Seat?

There are times in life when the very fabric that keeps us together seems to be falling apart. Know that God has you. That yes it's scary to relive nightmares. But remember God has made each and everyone of us a promise. If we believe and trust in him, he will have our backs.

And There Will Be No More Tears

Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

To Be Free Of Debt

We live our lives owing some one for something. We never see an end to the mounds of debt we incur. It can be overwhelming. Try to let this not be a burden. Give it to God.
Romans13:7
Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed

We Often Ask Why

It's common place to ask God why. However, when the realness of being a child of God comes into play, one ask in humbleness and humility, why not.
