Dear Precious Friends,
On this Magnificent Monday I pray you are starting your day with the Lord in praise, worship and filling yourself with His word, His way, His truth which remind us His mercies are new each day and He has each of us here for such a time as this! The Lord never intends for us to stay stuck in our sin, pain or deep sorrow. He heals and restores and calls us onward. He reminds us that in Him we have great purpose and hope.
We continue to get blasted with such negative news that could really get to us if we didn't know His truth. If I listen to the news on whatever station, it doesn't take long for me to be so broken that I can absolutely loose the peace the Lord offers!!!
Peace is a commodity that can only be found with time spent seeking the face of God. The world can’t offer us peace because it has nothing in which to place its hope, trust, and security. Kingdoms come and go. Leaders move in and out of power. What societies value changes like the passing of the tides. Our only constant is God. He has been, is, and forever will be the Creator, Sustainer, and Lord of all. All authority has been given to him. He governs the change of seasons. He thwarts the plans of our enemy. And he longs to offer total and sustained peace to all who place their hope and trust in him.
His word reminds us of how we have perfect peace... We fix our eyes on Him! I will have perfect peace when I fix my eyes on Him! Isaiah 26:3
NO PEACE...NO JESUS
KNOW PEACE... KNOW JESUS...
WE HAVE WORK TO DO MY FRIENDS, WE ARE THE CHURCH!!!!
We need to take this love out into our community every single day. When we do this, lives are changed and one person at a time, we overcome the enemy!!!
Take courage my friends, He is greater than any battle and enemy we face in this life. We overcome because He has overcome!
Our world is broken beyond belief.. so what are we to do? Yes our hearts are broken, we are sad about what is happening … well I’m glad you asked..
We are Christians and disciples making disciples need to remember we were made for such a time as this. We have a call to action as believers!!! When we are filled with the Holy Spirit and know Him, Know His word and there is a world out there that is void of Him... there is only one response...
It's time we WAKE UP!
God knew when we would be born…and He knew we would be here for such a time as this!!! He is calling us to rise up…
There are so many broken people who are broken beyond human repair… They need Jesus!!!
God will help each one of us Through His power… We have his power living in us… they are broke beyond human repair yet we have His power to reach them!!!
We know this truth that set us free…
It’s time we rise up like Lazarus to the work He has for us to do…
Jesus has sown love in each of us for a reason… we must die to our will and pray His will to be done… where we refuse to go, the enemy will grow…. this is an urgent call on our lives…
There is danger at this hour and we can’t sleep like the disciples did when Jesus was in His darkest hour
God sent us to be salt in this world… we may not like where we are but God has placed us here for such a time as this and once we received Him as our Lord and Savior, we received His Lordship over our lives..
We are deployed in war.. a big battle.. it’s time to rise up to the challenge!!! We are all called by God!! All things were made for Him and by Him… He’s waiting for us to step up and be faithful to what he has put in our hands..
It’s time for revival… not the coming of doom, let’s wake up from our slumber and remember : 2 Corinthians 6:2: “For He says: ‘In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.’ Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
Who will join me…???
As part of the family of God, we are to come to the aid of our brothers and sisters in need (Philippians 2:3–4). When a load suddenly becomes too heavy for one person, we are to bear one another’s burdens. The added strength and encouragement of others is often the difference between pressing on and giving up…. so many of given up on hope, we are hope bearers as Christ followers who are to go out and set the captives free and share Jesus and His love with all we come in contact with. Our time is now… Let’s rise up… only one life will soon be past only whats done for Christ will last.. who will join me in seriously assessing our day each and every day by this truth beginning and ending our day with how we made a difference on behalf of God that lasts an eternity.
."For such a time as this" - the phrase alone invokes courage and hope among believers. From the time we’re first introduced to it from the book of Esther, these six simple words inspire us toward that one defining moment we all long for—our chance to make a difference. A moment like Queen Esther’s.
From her history and those around her, we can learn how discovering our own "for such a time as this" involves so much more than one pivotal moment. It also involves trusting God right where we are and taking action.... NO MORE SIDELINE FAITH MY FRIENDS!!!
Let's all commit to taking action today and get off the sidelines however that looks for each of us in our circumstances.
He knows our hearts, He knew each of us would be here for such a time as this...
WHO will join me???
Take a moment to listen to this song and lets GO!!!!
We are ready!!!! We were born for such a time as this!!
