Challenges

Each day is a new challenge but you have come too far to quit. The enemy will send a strong delusion to cause you to believe he won and you have failed. In the natural things may not seem that they are going your way but there is no failure when you are in Christ. All things are working together for your good. It may not look good it may not feel good but it is still working for your good.

2Co 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. (KJV)

Do not fear what man can do to you but cast your cares upon the Lord because he cares for you. Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever. He took care of you yesterday He will take care of you today. If He took care of you today He will also be there tomorrow.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.(KJV)

The word of God says after you have done the will of God you will receive the promise. He didn’t say you might, He didn’t say it could happen He said that it would happen. If you are doing the will of God in due time it will happen. In due time the promises must manifest. His promises are yes and amen.

Hebrews 10:35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. (KJV)

Abraham had been through many things, the good and the bad but the word of God says that when Abraham was old he had been blessed in every area of his life. No good thing had been withheld from him. This is not just Abraham’s story it is an example of what God will do for His people. It is an example of what God will do for you. Make a faith confession claim for yourself “When I am old I will have the blessings of Abraham”. I will have been blessed in every area of my life. No good thing will be withheld from me.

Miracles are for Today

Miracles are for Today

Jesus was the good news, He was the gospel that was sent to the people. He was the anointed one. He was The Messiah, the Son of God and the power of the Holy Spirit was upon Him. The word of God says he went about doing good and performing all kinds of miracles and using various methodologies. Sometimes He just spoke and persons were healed and raised from the dead. He touched a leper and He was healed. He put clay on the eyes of a blind man and He was made to see. Simply speaking working under the power of the Holy Spirit He helped people, He showed power, He showed compassion, He showed love. He performed miracles. He was able to do these things because the power that was on Him was more powerful than the power that was on the devil to destroy. So He healed and delivered people from the grips of the devil.

ACT 10:38  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. 

When the disciples walked with Jesus when He was on the earth they witnessed Him perform many miracles. He turned water into wine, He healed the sick, raised the dead, and brought sight to the blind.  Jesus told His disciples that anyone who has faith in Him could do the same things that He could do. He said that the works that He could do they would do and even greater because he was going to be with His father.

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

It was prophesied and it came to pass Jesus was crucified on the cross. The cross was no victory for satan because the word of God says that Jesus mocked satan at the cross and made a public spectacle out of him. Jesus took captivity captive and set the captives free. He took on a glorified body, walked the earth for forty days then ascended to sit on the right hand side of His Father and assume the role of advocate for you and me.

Jesus was gone but in the name of Jesus Peter and John and the other disciples continued to show up in the colonnade. Therefore, the signs, wonders and miracles that Jesus performed did not cease for the miracle working power and the ability to do great deeds passed from Jesus to the church. In the church the power to perform a miracle still resides because God still divinely intervenes in human affairs. What I am saying is that there are occasions when God steps in over rides the natural with the supernatural and does something beyond intellectual or scientific comprehension so that somebody can be blessed.

In the name of Jesus miracles are still performed. God knows that today somebody needs a miracle. If you need a miracle ask in the name of Jesus.

Being Confident

Christian-Backgrounds

Being Confident

When we pray we have to be confident that God will answer our prayers.

Asa the fifth King of the House of David was zealous in his worship of God. Asa encountered an enemy he knew he could not defeat without the intervention of God.  Zerah the Ethiopian along with a powerful army of thousands of soldiers came to do battle with Asa. The army of Zerah outnumbered the army of Asa more than two to one and Asa knew that with an army of that magnitude he would be defeated. So what did he do ? He humbled himself went to the Lord and asked for help saying “This is too big for me but I know that they are not too big for you and you will not let this army of mere mortals defeat you.” Asa was right God did not let the army  of Zerah the Ethiopian  prevail. Zerah and his army were sorely defeated, ran from the presence of Asa and they were slaughtered and destroyed.

2Ch 14:11 And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let no man prevail against thee.2Ch 14:12 So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled.

Regardless to how big you are, how wise you are and how strong you are sooner or later you will encounter an enemy who is too big for you. It may not be a physical enemy it could be a spiritual enemy or a combination of the two. So what do we do when we encounter an enemy who is too great for us to handle? We do exactly what Asa did we take it to the Lord, humble ourselves and ask God to help us to overcome our enemy. When we go to God we have to be cognizant of what the word of God says.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

In order for us to receive whatever it is that we pray for we have to believe that we will receive it.  Don’t doubt God. You have to be confident that not only is God able to do it but you have to believe that God will do it and He will do it for you
