An Assured Hope

Isaiah 40:31; 41:10; Jeremiah 17:7

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.
Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Blessed [is] the man that trusteth in the LORD and whose hope the LORD is.

If the question was raised, why am I writing about hope? I like many others across these United States feel betrayed, heartbroken, angry and certainly do not trust Trump and his regime to be the President for all America.
Many of us watched his bigotry; lies, hate, and his personal assault on every nationality except White America who is rich like him; so then what to say that he will change now that he is the President; nothing. I say this because a Leopard never changes his spots.
So then what hope do we have? The answer is found in Jesus Christ as stated in our discussion scriptures. It is Him that our hope is assured, because without an unwavering faith and trust in Him we never lose. We are overcomers in Christ, but what we must do is remain strong, committed to our fight for what is right, just and fair for all Americans.
 Remember all humanity is created in the image and likeness of God our creator, and we are all linked through His Spirit. We may have lost the war but not the battle; the best is yet to come because the truth will be known as parts are coming forth as we speak.
In closing, allow me to encourage all to stay sprayed up, focus, committed, and to get involved by doing whatever we can to change things.
An assured hope is in the Lord. His truth and justice will reign.

A Daily Walk With God Through Prayer

Nehemiah 1:1-12

And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven. And said, I beseech thee, O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love Him and observe His commandments.

In light of the sinful conditions this world is in I felt the need to remind all that we stand tallest on our knees. This is our daily walk with God through prayer as He hears and answer. We know that When God's people pray and or come together in prayer God hears and answer. That being said, we need a spiritual revival because of the sinful conditions facing our world. We are witnessing all manner of wickedness worldwide. The church is being persecuted in foreign countries to the point that many are being murdered for worshiping Christ and many are being imprisoned for the same reason. In this country, it appears as if God's people are being overtaken by sin and there seems to be no stopping it, but be encouraged sin and Satan is a defeated foe.
These conditions bring into focus 2 Chronicles 7:14, which states, if  my people, which are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I am encouraging all to continue in prayer because God hears and answers prayer. Prayer has been and continues to be an integral part of believers lives the world over. Prayers of the righteous availeth much (James 5:16).
Keep praying, keep believing, because God is moving and change is coming.

His Workmanship

Ephesians 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Who is His workmanship? Believers in this scenario are the workmanship because all believers are workers for Christ. Being workers for Christ, believers are to live holy lives before men so that our good works can be seen by Christ who is in heaven. Being the workmanship for Christ mean that we are to continue carrying the gospel message to the world as commissioned by Christ Himself (Matthew 28:19-20) as it is our mission to make other disciples for Christ.
The question now becomes, how do we make disciples? We make other disciples through our lifestyles, through our witness as it is to begin in our homes, communities and then carry the gospel message abroad. Being workers for Christ we are to minister to the sick, feed the hungry, visit the homebound, give comfort where needed because Christ said “what you do to the least of these you do also unto me” (Matthew 25:40).
Christ was the perfect example for doing the will of His Father and we as believers are to do likewise in following Christ’s example of ministry. It is noteworthy to mention that we are not saved by our good works but because of our salvation we do good works. James 2:17, which states “faith if it hath no works is dead.” Does your works exemplify your faith? True faith always manifests itself in obedience to God as it relates to our works.
Our works speak to our faith.

Conviction and Commitment

As we begin the New Year it is with the conviction to live for Christ our Lord and Savior as He is the way, truth and the light to a better and more rewarding life.

Believers being the guiding in this sin darkened world the unsaved will come to know Christ in the parting of their sins and accept Him as Lord and Savior. For the saved, we will commit ourselves to shine brighter the light of Christ for this world to see through our witnessing and proclaiming the good news of salvation.

That being said, writing this month's messages are designed to point all to Christ with an undeterred conviction of sharing the gospel message of Christ. Carrying the gospel message, all readers will have a renewed commitment to tell everybody what Christ has done in his/her life-witnessing Christ.

With this renewed conviction and commitment, the gospel will continue to be proclaimed the world over so that lost souls will hear and come to Christ. Then the new converts will become adopted sons and daughters of God thereby joining His holy nation.

With a renewed conviction and commitment, we can and will do great things for the Lord.

Conviction and commitment equals courage, confidence and promise.

Reflections and Encouragement

Psalm 23:1-6

The Lord is my shepherd, shall not want.

Today's message is designed for us to look back on 2016 and consider the blessing and trials that we encountered this year; our blessings out weigh our troubles and for this we say thank You Lord.
Reflecting on the entire 23rd Psalm, we see just who the Lord. He is ever present and His goodness and mercy is there regardless of the situation. There is no problem that He can't solve and no mountain to high for Him to climb. He is every where.
That being said, we can look forward to the New Year with a renewed hope that the God we serve is much larger than any problem and or situation we may encounter. My advice, tell your little problems about your big God. I say this because whatever we may face God knew about it before it began and have the solution we have to see the situation through to the end. In doing so our faith grows and our confidence in the Lord increases. There is no failure in Him.
That said, as we reflect, look forward to the New Year with a strong conviction and a renewed commitment to live for Jesus and let the world know who we are and to whom we belong.

Joy To The World

Matthew 2:10

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

When God does something He does it with grandeur to the point there is no mistaking His message. I make this claim because the writer Matthew presents Jesus' birth (2:1-10) with the wise men asking, "Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east and are come to worship him." The wise men were the religious learned men of the region and King Herod himself were troubled of the news and sent the wise men to search for the new born King. As God would have it these men returned to their respective homes a different way to keep from giving King Herod his answer as to where Jesus was. The king had ill intentions for wanting to know the whereabouts of baby Jesus, but the wise men intentions were different. God always has a master plan which will be carried out.
God's grandeur in this scenario is that He used a star to guide the wise men to baby Jesus so they too could worship Him with great joy as they brought gifts of honor for the new born king. We have seen three sets of worshippers worshiping Jesus, the shepherds who were abiding in the field, the heavenly hosts and now the wise men who represented the Christians of their day. With that being said, let's join in the celebration of worshiping Jesus' birth, then we too can sing Joy to the World Christ the King is born.
Jesus' birth is a joy like none other.
