Redemption is YOURS!!!

Good morning. My encouragement to you this week is to praise God as the Redeemer. God intends for nothing to have us bound forever. God is working towards our freedom. And when God frees you, he will free you forever. There is nothing God cannot overpower.

You may feel bound by something that is holding you back from where you want to be. Do not get discouraged yet Saints. God is going to free you of that situation. In these times, thing s are harder to see. All thoughts swirl in your mind. You question is God listening. You question yourself. You have to guard your heart which means guarding your mind. Never let yourself be your greatest enemy. God is working on your behalf. Pray to God and remain faithful. God intends nothing to be our master besides him. God is our master, our savior, our healer, our deliverer, and our redeemer. There is no one like God. God wants us to live in freedom. Romans 10:10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. Confess sins and troubles to God, and God will take care of the rest. God is a God of love who wants his children to prosper. Go will conquer your chains. God will provide the delivery we wait for..Trust in his saving grace....Be Blessed...

Serve Christ has served you..

Good morning Saints. My encouragement to you this week is to serve others as Christ has served you. Speak encouragement to another, spend time with those in trial, or volunteer your labor to better someone else. Be a servant to others.

Be a servant to others. My encouragement to you this week is that simple. It is our responsibility to give to others. Someone has given to us at one time or another. We have a responsibility to serve others. It is our expression of love, compassion, and joy to better the lives of someone. If we look at the life of Christ, Christ served others in so many capacities for a lifetime. His words inspired hope in the lives of many. His kindness expressed the love he had for us even in our times of rebellion against God. He was never too busy to help the life of another. Are we this way with others? Do we really try and give our service to better another or are we too busy self-serving ourselves? I look at my own life at times and wonder do I do too much for others. A very good friend of mine kept me encouraged to keep up the work and I am grateful for her constant encouragement. When you are impacting the life of another, the work will never feel like it is too much. You are doing a great thing to help someone else become the great person you want them to be. You are volunteering your time to see the joy on the faces of others. You spend time with those in trial because they will truly know what love is and how to give it to another person. All things that Christ has done for people and all the things Christ is doing for us...Be Blessed...

Greatness..It's In You!!

My encouragement to you this week is to realize how great you are, even in the midst trials! You are supplied with the strength of God. Don't let the memory of failure tell you different. God hasn't blessed us with mediocrity. God wants you to be great! He will strengthen you to endure your trials and he will empower you to succeed in all your ways!

Realize how great you are. You are capable of great things. I know when we are going through our trials it can be hard to even think of yourself as anything profound. But I want to tell you, YOU ARE GREAT!!! Realize your greatness. God has not made it so that we are to be unhappy our whole lives. We may go through trials that may last for a little while but we will not be condemned to our fates as long as God is involved. God will give you the strength to last through your situation. Believe in God. Believe in his everlasting strength. You have to be faithful so you will have to endure. God deserves the glory and the honor. Give it to him for what he has done for your life. The Lord will endure forever. His Love endures forever. Call to God. God wants you to be great too!! He wants you to be great so that you will know that it is through God's grace your success is given to you...Be Blessed...

God is Real..Seek God and God Will Find You...

Good morning Saints. My encouragement to you this week is to keep your eyes & heart focused on the qualities of God. In the midst of trouble, God will become more real in your life. God will be your Father, Provider, Healer, & Comfort.

Deuteronomy 4:29 says "But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul." I think sometimes when we are calling to God we are more in hope that he happens to catch our requests of him in his ear. Is there any real sincerity in our search for the Lord? Are we seeking God with our hearts because this is our desire or are we just hopelessly hoping he finds us? In the midst of our troubles, I think we have a tendency to call on him out of our desperation rather than call on him because our hearts are looking for him. God always seems to be the last resort. Make God the first choice and last choice. Seek him with your soul. When you call out to God, call on him with all your heart. God will draw closer to you to strengthen your resolve in his holy name. God has a lot of great qualities. God is our healer, our comfort, our provider, our everything. God is amazing. He is sovereign. God is compassionate. God is omniscient. God is omnipresent. God is all knowing. God is strong. God is love. God is aware. This list can go on and on of how great God is. Seek God with all of your heart and soul and you will see just how real God is. God says in Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. This is something I need to work on myself. I know God is amazing. I want you to know God is amazing. If you already know God is amazing, keep your heart fixed on him. Keep seeking him. The day we become complacent, is the day we fail. Our salvation is a never-ending process. The closer we draw to God, the closer God will draw to us. We will truly know who God is and what God can do...Be Blessed...

Seek the Lord and You Shall Find...

My encouragement for you this week is to keep seeking the Lord amidst the chaos of our lives. The comfort & help God can provide WILL impact our lives in a powerful way. God is always paying attention. Give God your attention and he will give you more than what you can EVER ask for.

In the midst of our chaos, we say, " I don't know where to turn." Turn your face to the same place it should be even when things are not so peachy. Turn your face and your heart to God. It is easy to praise God while we're on the mountain top but always seems to hard to find God when everything isn't so clear. God is the same place he was when you got into your problems. He is there. He is our refuge when we need to be hidden for a little while against more things which tear us down. He is our strength when we need to confront our troubles. Do you know the God you serve. God is enduringly strong. God is imperially powerful. God is impartially merciful. God supplies strength to the weak. There is nothing that the Lord cannot do for you. Seek the Lord with everything that you have. God will never leave you where you don't want to be without taking care of you. You don;t need to keep looking in the wrong places for all of your help. Our God is an awesome God. He is all that we need ....Be Blessed..
