Truth!-Friday Freedom



Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 esv





Father,

In a word full of lies show us how to stand up for truth! The enemy has the eyes of so many of us blinded, and there is only one thing that can lead them to the truth. That one thing is Jesus Christ! Give us the boldness to stand up for Jesus and to stand up for truth in ALL situations. The truth may not always be the easiest or most comfortable option, but it is always the BEST option! In Jesus' name

AMEN

Truth! - Thursday Thought

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 esv





Jesus values you greatly! How much do you value Him?

Truth!-Wednesday Word

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 esv



Sunday night Kim and I had the experience of a lifetime, seeing Stevie Wonder live in concert. Of course it was amazing. My favorite song he performed was "As." You may know it as "I'll Be Loving You Always." While I always thought this was a typical love song, Stevie explained that this is a tribute written to his mother. I find it to be a beautiful song in that he says he will love her until conditions such as "until the trees and seas just up and fly away" or "until the day the earth starts turning right to left" or even "until the dolphins fly and parrots live at sea." These are obviously events that will NEVER happen. What an amazing way to say he will love her always.

Quite naturally I began to reminisce about my own mother who is in Heaven with Jesus. And the thought welled up in my spirit, "Wow, I will really be able to love her ALWAYS!" Why? Because she knows Jesus and so do I! We may exist in different places right now, but one day we will truly see each other and continue to have a relationship.




If you are missing someone who is with God and you know Christ too remember that your love for them will truly last ALWAYS. Also do your best to make the love between you and all your loved ones last ALWAYS. Make sure they know the one truth that holds the universe together. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Jesus is the only way to salvation, God, and eternal life! 

Go and tell somebody!

Truth!-Tuesday Truth

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 esv





Jesus came with one overall message. He is The Way to salvation. Jesus' boldness caused division and strife with some close to Him, but He knew what His mission was. We live in a world and culture that promotes personal happiness over truth which may hurt. Jesus told the truth even when it hurt because He knows that what we need to hear. Be like Jesus. Don't be afraid to tell the truth!

Truth!-Monday Motivation

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 esv





Jesus boldly proclaimed that He is the one and only way to God. Although some people may not agree with or like that fact, it is the truth nonetheless. Standing with Christ means standing for the truth in all situations. Some may not agree with you or like what you are doing, but just keep focusing on Christ!

Waiting Room-Thursday Thought

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Psalm 27:14 esv




Have you ever just sat and thought about what The Lord is trying to teach you in THIS season of your life? Don't be so harried to move on to the next step or season in life. Trust God's plan and timing.

Waiting Room-Wednesday Word

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Psalm 27:14 esv




Think about every time you thought about making a major decision. Usually when we make big decisions quickly things don't go well. However, if we take time to wait and process our thoughts and how to go about getting things done the end result will be better. That's how Christ works. He takes time to make us think about what He has laid on our hearts and how to seek Him diligently. The ups and downs of life are God's way of teaching us lessons. JUST WAIT ON GOD!

Waiting Room-Tuesday Truth

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Psalm 27:14 esv




Our God is a God of processes. He enjoys working on us over time. While He is moving in your situation He also desires to transform you to the image of Christ. There is purpose in God's process. There is purpose in your pain. JUST WAIT!

Waiting Room-Monday Motivation

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Psalm 27: 14 esv




God rarely operates according to our time schedule. And that is a very good thing! There is something that God does in us through waiting that just cannot take place instantaneously. Trust God's time. WAIT!

The steps of a man are established by the Lord,

Psalm 37:23




God knows you can be the successful. He placed the desire and potential in your heart. Do you believe Him?

Ordered- Wednesday Word

The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
    when he delights in his way

Psalm 37:23




I believe God places a desire for success in the hearts of every person. Confusion comes from a botched idea of what true success is or how to get there. David sheds light on success in this passage. David says that God will lead you when your way is pleasing to Him. God is leading you. He is pleased with your life. He is showing you what to do and where to go. That sounds like a good definition of success to me!

There are thousands of books on how to be successful, but all true success begins by submitting to God. Make Christ your highest priority and your steps will be established.

    trust in him, and he will act.
Psalm 37:5 esv






Lord show me how to trust You. Show me what true commitment is. Lead me into a deeper and more fruitful relationship with You. I believe that You will act Lord. I believe that I will see Your mighty hand moving in my life. Help me commit to You and continually trust Your Word and Your will so that I can reach my full destiny in You!

Commit-Thursday Thought

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him, and he will act.
Psalm 37:5 esv






Many relationships fail due to lack of trust. Before you can see God work in your life and in your heart learn how to trust God and remain committed to Him. Do you trust Him? Are you committed to Christ above all else? How do you know?

Commit-Wednesday Word

Commit your way to the Lord;

    trust in him, and he will act.
Psalm 37:5 esv







Committing your way to the Lord here literally means to roll your cares over on Him. For those of you who see the cares and concerns of life as a heavy stone, just roll it over to Jesus. He can handle it. Here we see a recipe for peace. Give your problems over to God AND trust Him. There's a song that says, "Take your burdens to The Lord and leave it there." Too many of us take our burdens to God and pick them right back up! When you seriously trust God you will roll your cares over to Him and trust Him to be God. Then, and ONLY then, will you see Him act!

Commit-Tuesday Truth

Commit your way to the Lord;

    trust in him, and he will act.
Psalm 37:5 esv







When you truly commit to God, then you will see Him moving in your everyday life. Don't ask Him to move first so you can commit to Him after you've seen Him act. The Lord does not operate that way.

High Satisfaction-Friday Freedom

Delight yourself in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4 esv



Father God, help us as Your children to learn what it means to delight in You. We get frustrated at times when our prayers are not answered. Help us realize that sometimes our requests are not granted because we are asking You for the wrong things! You promised in Your Word that our heart's desires would be met if we only delight in You Lord. Help us more and more everyday to seek You with our entire heart, so that we can find high satisfaction in You and our heart's desires will be met!

AMEN
