Be diligent in your life, serve the Lord, and seek His plan for your life. Use all that God has given you to bring Him glory! It is in this that you will find your true purpose before heaven, be fulfilled in your life, and enter into God’s divine blessings.
Love one another, and allow the Lord’s love to penetrate your heart.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).
God speaks in many ways. The question is; are you listening? We encourage you to hear the Lord’s voice in your life, no matter what form His voice comes in. The Lord loves you and He desires to speak to you.
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (John 10:27).
In 2014 and throughout the coming years we encourage you to seek the Lord, and to serve Him with your whole heart. Clear your heart before the Lord, ridding yourself of sin; and asking the Lord to prepare you for all He has for you in the coming year. It is through repentance and humility that a person’s heart is realigned with the Lord; and there is no better time to do this than during the Christmas season.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and warmest wishes for 2014!
Give thanks to the Lord this Thanksgiving! Remember the many blessings in your life!
Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 106:1
Your faith moves the heart of God. Remember to look upward to the Lord and keep your eyes fixed on Him. No matter what you may be facing in your life know in your heart that Jesus Christ is mightier and more powerful than your circumstance. Look to Him and He will not let you down.
Today we encourage you to receive the Lord’s peace in your life. It is through the obedience and surrender of your heart to Him that you will receive the Lord’s peace, which passes all understanding.
“He Himself (Jesus Christ) is our peace” (Ephesians 2:14).
Allow the Lord to lead, guide, and direct you in your life and regarding those He is calling you to forgive. Allow the Holy Spirit to empower you to forgive yourself, and also to forgive those around you. The Lord loves you and His forgiveness is ready and available to you. Remember the Bible says; “For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions” (Matthew 6:14-15). Forgive this day and be forgiven!
Choose to obey the Lord in your life this day. Remember; to obey God is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22). The Bible teaches us that when we love God, we will obey Him. Be obedient and watch the Lord’s blessings spring forth in your life!
Give to the Lord what He is commanding you. Don’t hold back, but give your very best. It is in this that you will position yourself to receive of the Lord’s blessings for your life.
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” Luke 6:38.
