Jesus–the One Who Always Believes

Jesus–the One Who Always Believes

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”  Mark 9:23

Mark 9:23 has been traditionally taught to mean that you can have your miracle if YOU can believe.  If you can’t believe, then Jesus isn’t going to give you your miracle.

But if you study the Greek structure of the verse, it’s actually saying, “Can you believe that all things are possible to Him (Jesus) who is always believing?”

That makes a world of difference!  It’s not about how well or how much you can believe, but WHO you believe.  Jesus is the only one whose faith is always constant and never wavers.  His faith never fails!  And if you can believe that all things are possible for Jesus who never doubts, never wavers, then you are on your way to receiving your miracle!

Beloved, have faith not in your faith, but in Him who always believes and always wants to do good to you!

Eight Words that Will Forever Change Your Life!

Eight Words that Will Forever Change Your Life!               
The eight words in I John 4:19 forever changed my life over 40 years ago:  “We love God because He first loved us.”
In a few short words, the apostle John reveals to believers the truth that eluded the Pharisees and Bible scholars in Jesus’ day.  Sadly, it is still a mystery to many today.  The cry of every religion around the world is all the same, “You must love God!” but the gospel declares that God loves us and He loved us first!  What an awesome thought that we are the object of His amazing love and continue to be because His is love (I John 4:8).  
If God loved us first, then that means we did nothing to earn or deserve His love.  To believe that God does not love you is to accuse Him of not being truthful.  Don’t allow your emotions or past failures and history to make you feel disqualified from knowing and experiencing the love God has for you.  God used a murderer to write most of the New Testament and another to give us the law.
God doesn’t demand we love Him first;  the truth is, we really can’t love God the way He deserves to be loved until we know and believe in the love He has for us. Our ability to love God doesn’t come from our own human effort or even praying and asking Him to help us love Him.  We should pray that he will help us to understand how much He loves us as this will cause our love for Him to increase.
 Let’s turn 1 John 4:19 around and make it personal: “Because God first loved me, I now can love Him!”  
If you believe God loves you just the way you are at this very moment, you are perfectly capable of loving Him.

Self Seeking Not God Seeking

Self Seeking Not God Seeking
“Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.”
                                                           John 6:26
Jesus knew the hearts of men and therefore, He did not commit Himself to this crowd.  Just the day before, these same people tried to take Him by force and make Him their king, but He withdrew and spent the night in prayer.
This crowd looked like they were seeking Jesus, but they were actually trying to use Jesus to seek their own end.  It is true that there are many personal benefits to be reaped through serving the Lord, but the benefits are never to become our object.  In all things, Christ must have the preeminence (Col. 1:18).
Jesus exposed the true intentions of the people’s hearts by preaching a strong message of commitment.  Those who were self-centered were offended and left while those who were willing to lay down their lives to experience God’s abundant life remained. Commitment to God Himself (not what He can produce) is what always separates the true worshippers of God from the false.
As Jesus began to explain in these verses that He was the only way to the Father (Jn. 14:6) and that they would have to come through Him, the people grew angry.  It always angers the flesh to think that all our righteous acts can’t save us, but Jesus makes it clear that our only part in salvation is to believe.  Believe what? Believe on Jesus and His sacrifice–not ours.  Salvation is a gift and cannot be purchased (Rom. 10:2-3).Many times, we get so intent on seeking God in one area that we forget the greatest miracle of all, which is the love and redemption given to us from God through His Son. 
God loves us so much!          Andrew Wommack

Peace In The Midst Of The Storm 

Peace In The Midst Of The Storm 
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awakened him, and say unto him, Master carest thou not that we perish?      
Luke 8:19-26
Considering the fact that the boat was filled with water, it is amazing that the disciples had to awaken Jesus.  This was not a large ship with cabins below deck but rather a small, open boat and Jesus was, no doubt, “soaked to the bone.”  This reflects Jesus’ humanity and how tired He must have been. It also shows that Jesus must have been in a very deep sleep. Medical science has discovered that the deeper we sleep, the more rest our bodies get.  This is a clue as to how Jesus could maintain the grueling pace He kept, along only with an occasional all-night prayer time.  He was receiving the maximum benefit from His sleep.                                                                                                                                                         
Jesus did not say “Let us go out into the midst of the sea and drown in a storm.”  He was going to the other side. This shows that the disciples still didn’t understand Jesus’ authority.  They were committed to Him as their Messiah, but they hadn’t yet realized that Jesus was Lord even over the physical elements.  Many Christians still do this today.  They receive the spiritual benefits of salvation but have not reaped the physical benefits of health and prosperity, which are also part of our salvation.                                                                                                                            
Whichever we focus upon – the storm, or the Lord in the midst of our storm – will determine how we manage the storms we face in life.  He is not asleep concerning the things you face in this life, He’s right there in your “ship, resting, because He knows you’ll both get to the “other side.”  His peace is yours. Believe His Word.  Rest in His love.

I WILL RISE – Chris Tomlin                                                               
There’s a peace I’ve come to know                                  
Though my heart and flesh may fail                                                         
There’s an anchor for my soul                                                
I can say “It is well” Jesus has overcome                                                               
And the grave is overwhelmed                                     
The victory is won                                                            
He is risen from the dead,                                                               
And I will rise when He calls my name                                   
No more sorrow, no more pain                                                                          
I will rise on eagles’ wings                                          
Before my God fall on my knees                                    
And I will rise                                                                                 
There’s a day that’s drawing near                                       
When this darkness breaks to light                       
And the shadows disappear                                       
And my faith shall be my eyes                                                            
Jesus has overcome                                                            
And the grave is overwhelmed                                              
The victory is won                                                              
He is risen from the dead                                
And I will rise when                                                            
He calls my name                                                                   
No more sorrow, no more pain                                                                      
I will rise on eagles’ wings                                                
Before my God fall on my knees                            
And rise I will rise                                                                       
And I hear the voice of many angels singing, “Worthy is the Lamb”                                                               
And I hear the cry of every longing heart, “Worthy is the Lamb”

 Believe in the One who made those promises

You know, it’s interesting how some people see faith as simply believing in God’s promises.  But let me tell you something truly amazing; faith is actually about believing in the very One who made those promises.   It’s all about trust and confidence in the One who stands behind His words.

The Voice of the Shepherd      

The Voice of the Shepherd                                                                       
Listen!  As the Shepherd calls in the night a familiar voice lets you know it’s alright. Other voices call but it’s not the same, because the Good Shepherd calls you by name. He leads you to pastures that are green. But with your eyes you may have not seen the goodness in the land the Shepherd knows.  He calls you out and His pathway He shows.  Keep your ears attentive so you will hear.  Watch and pray as you keep the shepherd near. Listen to his voice and you will know so follow where He has you to go.

Open Up the Scriptures   

Open Up the Scriptures   
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.  Romans 10:17  NASB
When I was studying the Emmaus story, I asked the Lord why He chose to restrain the eyes of the two disciples such that they couldn’t recognize Him (Luke 24:13-35).  I asked Him, “Wouldn’t it have been better for them to see You with Your nail pierced hands?”  Wouldn’t it have been better if Jesus had walked down the busiest streets of Jerusalem, lifted up His hands, and hollered, “Yo! Everyone, check this out!”
But Jesus knew that doing that would not produce true faith.  He revealed to me that it was more important for the disciples to see Him in the Word than to see Him in person.
Wow, those words brought so much hope and encouragement to my heart.  If the faith of the disciples was based on them seeing Jesus physically in the flesh, then what hope do we have today?
Jesus purposefully restrained their eyes so that they would see Him first in the Scriptures.  That places you and me on equal ground and with equal opportunity as the two disciples.  Jesus wants us all to see Him in the Word.
God’s Word tells us that “faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ” (Rom. 10:17).  This means that the more you hear Jesus unveiled, expounded upon, and pointed to in the Scriptures, the more faith will be imparted to your heart to believe everything God’s Word says about you.
Could it be the reason many believers are still living in defeat today is that Jesus has not unveiled the scriptures to them?   The gospel is about Jesus. It’s all about believing in Jesus that makes a difference in people’s lives.

The Word is true

I looked out the window Friday morning and the rain had started falling softly.                                                                                I thought of Isaiah 55:10-11  “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there but water the earth and make it bring forth and bud that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it”.
The Word is true His promises sure
Never give up and what the Father has said to you
You are more valuable than the birds that fly high in the sky
Isaiah 55:11 is a promise to hold onto for He would never lie

Four things to tell yourself every single day

Four things to tell yourself every single day:
I am a warrior in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!       
I can do it by God’s grace.
I am a winner through Christ Who strengthens me.
Today is my day in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
Habits of happy people:
Don’t show off.  Talk less. Learn daily. Help the less fortunate. Laugh more. Ignore nonsense.  Have no sense of entitlement.  Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.  When the hate does not work, they start telling lies.  
INTEGRITY:   Choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy, and choosing to practice values rather than simply professing them.
                                      Dr.  Daniel O.C.

Familiarity Breeds Contempt   

Familiarity Breeds Contempt   
Luke 4:24 ‘And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.’
A modern day equivalent of this verse is ‘familiarity breeds contempt.’  Those who know the most about us also know more of our faults than anyone else.  As a general rule, our weaknesses will blind most people to our strengths.
However, in the case of Jesus, there were no faults or failures to bias these people.  In this instance, the problem stemmed from the people’s lack of perception.  They knew Jesus better than most in the flesh, but they had failed to see who He was in the Spirit.
Jesus was God in all His power and majesty, yet He was clothed in flesh –a human in every respect (I Tim. 3:16, Heb. 1:3).  These people looked on Jesus’ outward appearance and failed to see God within ( I Sam. 16:7).
Likewise, we fail to see the potential in others and even in ourselves because of our preoccupation with the outward appearance and actions.l  But within every born again person is a new creation which is waiting to be released (2 Cor. 5:17).  All it takes is someone who believes.

Today look beyond the exterior in yourself and others and help bring into reality what we can be in Christ..

A tennis racket in Pete Sampras’ hands is a Wimbledon Championship.  It depends on whose hands it’s in…
A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal.
A rod in Moses’ hands will part the mighty sea.  It depends on whose hands it’s in…
A slingshot in my hands is a kid’s toy.
A slingshot in David’s hand is a mighty weapon.  It depends on whose hands it’s in…
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands are a couple of fish sandwiches.

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse.
Nails in Christ Jesus’ hands will produce salvation for the entire world.  It depends on whose hands they’re in…
As you can see now, it depends on whose hands it’s in.
So put your concerns, your worries, your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your families, and your relationships in God’s Hands.  Because it depends on whose hands they’re in.

   JUST SHOW UP!                  
But now you yourselves are to put off all these:  anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.  Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old unregenerate self with its evil practices.”   Colossians 3:8-9
No matter what anyone says, just show up and do the work.
If they praise you, show up and do the work.
If they criticize you, show up and do the work.
If no one even notices you,  just show up and do the work.
Just keep showing up, doing the work and leading the way.
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies. For the hardest victory is over self.      
    We misrepresent God when we wear His name but not His character.                                               Bishop O.C.

You are not alone.

You are not alone.   Do you know who else found themselves in daunting circumstances?
Noah, in the ark, as the entire world was engulfed by the great flood…
David, standing before the menacing Goliath, with the fate of Israel on his shoulders…
Moses and the children of Israel, trapped between the Red Sea before them and the Egyptian army hot on their heels…
Maybe in some ways, you feel just like them.
But Hebrews 11 tells us the secret of how these great biblical heroes overcame their challenges and led victorious lives…
IT WAS BY FAITH!                                        Joseph Prince

Romans 8:38-39

 So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!

The Power to Serve

The Power to Serve
‘And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.’  Luke 1:41
Upon hearing the greeting of Mary, John the Baptist leaped for joy inside his mother’s womb (v. 44).  A six month old fetus experienced unbridled emotion, voluntarily leaped for joy and was actually filled with the Holy Spirit
It is no coincidence that the man who was called the greatest of all Old Testament prophets by Jesus, was the only man in the Bible to be filled with the Holy Ghost from his mother’s womb (Lk. 7:28).
The anointing of God that breaks every yoke is simply the manifest presence and working of the Holy Spirit (Isa. 10:27).  The Holy Spirit is the part of the Godhead that empowers us for service.
God is not asking us to live for Him.  He is asking us to let Him live through us (Gal. 2:20).  The Christian life is not a changed life but an exchanged life.  This can only be accomplished when the Holy Spirit is leading and empowering us.
Even Jesus didn’t begin His ministry until he was anointed with the Holy Spirit and He was the sinless son of God.  How much more do we need to depend on the power of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives?  Today, be conscious of the presence of the Holy Spirit in you and expect Him to supernaturally guide and empower you.  
If you ask, you will receive (Lk. 11:9-11).

Why Your Past Doesn’t Matter to God

Why Your Past Doesn’t Matter to God
One of the great truths revealed in the story of the Prodigal Son is that the gospel is not about our past but our present and future.  The happiest person at the party wasn’t the newly restored and forgiven son but his father.  The critical, fault finding brother missed the homecoming celebration because he was busy working for what the Prodigal was receiving and experiencing freely through his father’s unconditional love.
Legalism blinds and distorts the true nature and character of God.  It is only love that unveils the heart of God and can change the heart of the one who chooses to trust in God’s love personally.  Don’t miss out on what God has for you because of guilt and shame from your past.  Why remember what God has forgotten?
“For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more” (Hebrews 8:12).
“God does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities” (Psalm 103:10).

1st  Corinthians 13  (Christmas version)

1st  Corinthians 13  (Christmas version)
If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I’m just another decorator.
 If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love to my family, I’m just another cook.
If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.
If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir’s cantata, but do not focus on those I love the most, I have missed the point.
In other words,
Love stops the cooking to hug a child.
Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the spouse.
Love is kind, though harried and tired.
Love doesn’t envy another’s home that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens.
Love doesn’t yell at the kids to get out of the way, but is thankful they are there to be in the way. 
Love doesn’t give only to those who are able to give in return but rejoices in giving to those who can’t.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.
Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, and golf clubs will rust.  
But the gift of love will endure.     (anonymous)


Luke 24:21  “But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel; and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.”
When the right time came, God sent forth His Son from Heaven in His pre-existent state, into the world.  He was born of a woman (virgin birth) and was made subject to the requirements of the law.  Jesus was sent at a specific time.  The entrance of Jesus into the physical realm was not a random thing occurring at a haphazard time.  There were developments that had to take place before Christ could come to earth and redeem man.  The Father sent His Son to the earth at the earliest possible time.  Anytime prior to the time Jesus was born of the virgin Mary, would have been premature.
His purpose for coming into the world was twofold.  First, He came to ‘redeem them that were under the law,’  He did this by perfectly keeping the law, fulfilling it, and paying its curse (Mt. 5:17, Gal. 3:13).  Thus, Christ delivered us from the entire system of the law.  The Greek word for redeem means ‘to buy OUT OF the slave market.’
Secondly, Christ gave us the status of sonship with all its privileges.  Not only were we redeemed from the bondage of the law, but we were redeemed unto sonship.  Many people stop short, only realizing what they were delivered from, not what they inherited.  Sure, we need to rejoice that we are redeemed, but we also need to move on, and realize the full benefits of our inheritance.
God created us for Himself but we sold ourselves into slavery to the devil.  God bought us back through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.  No amount of effort, human works, or man’s own righteousness could bring the divine favor that we needed.  It was the actual life of God (Lev. 17:11) that purchased our redemption.
