Step Into the Truth of The Word

Posted By at Wednesday, November 24, 2010

John 16.13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

Here Jesus is telling us that The Holy Spirit would guide us into ALL TRUTH. Not just a little truth but ALL truth.  That means The Holy Spirit; the third person of the Godhead would help you to remember what you need from The Word in the day that you need to be able to remember it. If you work with The Holy Spirit, He will help you with the right words to say to your family members just at the right time when they will listen to you. Do you realize that as a Christian you already have all the answers to every problem you may ever face, already on the inside of you right now? That includes problems you don’t even know about yet! So don’t try to work out the answers on your own today. Release the Greater One on the inside. 1 John 4.4 Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

Step into the truth of His Word and walk in liberty.

Have a great week.

Are You Being Consistent?

Posted By at Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Malachi 3.6 For I am The Lord, I do not change....

Hebrews 13.8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever. 

I was reading in a newsletter from another ministry and they made this statement. THE POWER IS IN CONSISTENCY!

The statement grabbed my spirit and as I began to meditate on it, I realised that being consistent is something not so many Christians do in their walk with God. Some may have forgotten about it altogether. But thank God we don't have to depend on our human memory or strength to be right with God.

Christ Jesus the Anointed One, The Greater One, the Son of The Living God is living in us as Hebrews 13.8 says and He's the SAME yesterday, today and forever. So as we allow Him to live His life out through us; 1 John 4.4 says His consistency becomes our consistency.

As we become more like Him, we become more constant and thus more victorious every day, as the power of His consistency is released through us and round about us.

In John 8.31-32 Jesus said that disciples were those who continued in His Word and their consistence made them free.

Too many church folk are on the mountaintop on Sunday and deep in the valley on Monday, but that's not how it ought to be and that's why they lack God's power in their lives. We must learn consistency daily to please Him. 

Have a consistent week in Him.

Keep Your Eyes on Jesus

Posted By at Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Matthew 14.30-31 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”

31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”

The devil is always looking for ways to get your eyes off The Word and unto the circumstances around you, because he knows if he can do that you will be headed for trouble. But if you keep your eyes steadfast on God’s Word you will defeat the enemy every time.

That’s what happened to Peter when Jesus told him to come down out of the boat and onto the water. He started out ok and did pretty well for a few steps but when he took his eyes off Jesus and unto the storm and the water he began to sink.

He cried out to The Lord and of course Jesus reached out to save him. What I want you to note today is that Jesus said Peter had a little faith and a lot of doubt. Peter focused his attention on the circumstances instead of on Jesus and as a result his faith slipped and he got wet as he began to sink under the waves.

Don’t let the devil deceive you out of all that God has lined up for you. Don’t let go of the promises in God’s Word, once you find one that applies to your situation hang on to it and don’t let go, keep looking at it and confessing it and it will come to pass and you can walk on water OK if you keep that focus.

Be blessed have a great mid week. 

Do remember tomorrow at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, when we remember the fallen in the great wars.
