Daily Devotional Video 4/22/2020 – JOHN 8 : 36, PROVERBS 19 : 21, JOHN 10 : 27

“LISTEN TO GOD CONTINUALLY. GOD has much to communicate to you, so many people and situations in need of prayer. GOD is training you to set your mind on HIM more and more, tuning out distractions through the help of GOD’S Holy Spirit. Walk with The LORD in holy trust, responding to HIS initiatives rather than trying to make things fit your plans. The LORD, Jesus Christ died to set you free, and that includes freedom from compulsive planning. When your mind spins with a multitude of thoughts, you cannot hear The LORD’S voice. A mind preoccupied with planning pays homage to the idol of control. Turn from this idolatry back to GOD. Listen to GOD and live abundantly!” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. JOHN 8 : 36

Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. PROVERBS 19 : 21

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” JOHN 10 : 27

Prayer: Lord I listen for your still small voice directing and guiding me. Holy Spirit help me to set my mind on you more and more each day so that I can live the abundant life you intended long ago for me to live despite any circumstance. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

I John 1:5-7 NKJV

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. (I John 1:5-7 NKJV)

It is so important as Christians to let our light shine, it is so easy when trials arise to shut the light off and let the dark show and that is exactly what the devil wants. To have true fellowship with The Lord is defined by our actions, remember non believers and some believers are watching what we do under the gun. Today I pray that we all would light our light shine to the glory of God, for he created light and he is light………..Be Blessed

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new 2 Corinthians 5:17

Daily Devotional Video 4/21/2020 – GENESIS 1 : 26 – 27, ROMANS 8 : 6

“LET GOD CONTROL YOUR MIND. The mind is the most restless, unruly part of mankind. Long after you have learned the discipline of holding your tongue, your thoughts defy your will and set themselves up against The LORD. Man is the pinnacle of GOD’S creation, and the human mind is wondrously complex. GOD risked all by granting you freedom to think for yourself. This is godlike privilege, forever setting you apart from animals and robots. GOD made you in HIS image, precariously close to deity. Though The LORD’S blood has fully redeemed you, your mind is the last bastion of rebellion. Open yourself to GOD’S radiant Presence, letting HIS Light permeate your thinking. When GOD’S Holy Spirit is controlling your mind, you are filled with Life and Peace.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. GENESIS 1 : 26 – 27

The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. ROMANS 8 : 6

Prayer: Holy Spirit control my mind, fill it with thoughts of life and peace and things that are honorable and lovely and true and pure. When my mind wanders help me to hold those thoughts captive and make them obediant to Christ. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬ NIV)

Are you at a point in life where you think How did I get here, why am I here, am I ever going to get it turned around? My friends this scripture says there is a time and reason for everything. In life circumstances may look like they’re impossible, but God knows right where you are and why you’re there. Today I pray that whatever circumstance you are in that you trust God will bring you out…. May your tests be your testimony…….Be Blessed

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new 2 Corinthians 5:17

Daily Devotional Video 4/20/2020 – Mark 4 : 39, DEUTERONOMY 31 : 6, PSALM 46 : 2

Preface: There are those among you that are watching the “news media” and hearing constant bad news day in and day out and letting it “stress you out” – Today’s message is especially for you – please don’t let “the world and it’s media” distract you from the Peace that comes from Faith in The LORD.

“DO NOT BE AFRAID, for GOD is with you. Hear GOD saying Peace, be still to your restless heart. No matter what happens, GOD will never leave you or forsake you. Let this assurance soak into your mind and heart, until you overflow with Joy. Though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, you need not fear! The media relentlessly proclaim bad news: for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A steady diet of their fare will sicken you. Instead of focusing on fickle, ever-changing news broadcasts, tune in to the living Word—the One who is always the same. Let Scripture saturate your mind and heart, and you will walk steadily along the path of Life. Even though you don’t know what will happen tomorrow, you can be absolutely sure of your ultimate destination. GOD holds you by your right hand, and afterward GOD will take you into Glory.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Mark 4 : 39 (NKJV)

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” DEUTERONOMY 31 : 6

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. PSALM 46 : 2

Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. PSALM 73 : 23 – 24

Prayer: Lord I don’t know what tomorrow holds but you promise to give me my daily bread, just what I need for each day. Help me to saturate my mind and heart in your unfailing word. And even though I don’t know what will happen tomorrow I am absolutely sure I am Heaven bound. I rest in that today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

John 3:30

“He must become greater; I must become less.””
‭‭John‬ ‭3:30‬ ‭NIV‬‬

This has always been one of my favorite scriptures, it’s very simple ” put God first in everything” in the world today we live in a “Me” mentality and I believe that is the cause of the epic failure we see in society. Today’s prayer is simple put God first in everything you do and he will always be Greater……..Be Blessed

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new 2 Corinthians 5:17

Luke‬ ‭23:34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭23:34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

To his last breath Jesus was pleading the case for the sinner, hanging on the cross beaten and torn he was asking the Father to forgive them for what they had done and were doing. Is there someone that you are holding unforgiveness against? If so think of the words of Jesus from the cross. Today’s prayer is that we would forgive as Jesus did and not condemn those who persecute us but pray to the Father to forgive them…..There is power and freedom in forgiveness……..Be Blessed

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new

Romans‬ ‭15‬:‭13‬

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. (‭Romans‬ ‭15‬:‭13‬ NLT)

Your outlook on life can sometimes be controlled by the circumstances, the chaos around you steals your peace, but Gods promise and standing on his word brings all the issues into perspective. Today I pray peace and hope to all, trust in Gods promise and let the spirit direct your path……Be Blessed

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new

Daily Devotional Video 4/17/2020 – PSALM 112 : 7, ISAIAH 41 : 10

“GOD IS TRAINING YOU IN STEADINESS. Too many things interrupt your awareness of GOD. The LORD knows that you live in a world of sight and sound, but you must not be a slave to those stimuli. Awareness of GOD can continue in all circumstances, no matter what happens. This is the steadiness GOD desires for you. Don’t let unexpected events throw you off course. Rather, respond calmly and confidently, remembering that The LORD is with you. As soon as something grabs your attention, talk with The LORD about it. Thus GOD share your joys and your problems; GOD helps you cope with whatever is before you. This is how The LORD lives in you and works through you. This is the way of Peace.” para-phrased – Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. PSALM 112 : 7
