God’s Love: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Encouragement Shared:
Holy Week is the most precious time in all the year…
It is a time of reverence and awe in the awesome Glory of Christ!
God’s Perfect Plan:
I came that they may have life and may have it abundantly. John 10:10
The bible says that the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17

Choose to Receive –

The bible states: Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God– To see this love, to be part of this family of believers is just to look to cross.
I encourage you, that as you reflect on this Good Friday look to the cross and God’s Word and see it is through Jesus’ death on the cross we have been redeemed, forgiven accepted and loved. All that is required for us to do is trust, commit, delight and be still before the great “I AM.” He gave you the most wonderful gift Jesus Christ…

Recognize the Need of Christ-
No one is righteous, no not one- we are made righteous through Christ – [Romans 3] His death burial and resurrection.
We need to recognize our sin, ask for forgiveness and receive Jesus into our life; heart, mind and spirit…
If you have not prayed the prayer to accept Christ as your personal Savior just repeat the following prayer: You can receive Christ right now, God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as he is with the attitude of your heart.

Lord Jesus,
I open up my heart…
I invite you inside…
To be my God…
To be my Savior…
Forgive me of my sins, wash me clean, and make me new…
Thank you for dying on the cross for me and giving me eternal life.
Make me all that you want me to be.
In your precious name I pray AMEN!

Power to be Fearless

God’s Word - …I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise,for he has been good to me. - Psalm 13:5-6

Wisdom Shared: Beloved, regardless of the outward circumstance occurring in your life right at this moment.  God is at work in you … He will quiet you with His love … He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 –  Yes, mighty warrior the Lord our God is with you.  His Promise; Never will he leave your or forsake you; so we say with sincere trust and confidence … The Lord is my helper I will not be afraid. [Hebrews 13]  Beloved, speaking for myself and for my life it is the through those very words that I have come to live by…standing on the promises of God.

O’ Lord, forgive me, because I do fall short of your glory…I stumble and fall- I become discouraged bring me to fail  because at times I doubt in disbelief … Let me not be tossed by the waves of the sea, increase my faith so that I may live in your glory.  That I not waiver in my faith.  In Jesus name-Amen!

Faithful Power to Prosper:
Beloved, it is in the darkest hour that our faith prospers … It is in the hardest times, that God preserves us and yes even uses us to fulfill those divine appointments.  When the Holy Spirit prompts you to move forward in your faith do so with great confident joy.  When God reveals truth … through the illuminating word.  God’s has strengthening power to fill your soul with wisdom, knowledge and understanding continually equipping us for every living circumstance that is life.  Trust and believe … God is with you “Mighty Warrior” …
God states, through Isaiah the Profit; So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Be Fearless:
It by His almighty strength that becomes lasting sustaining grace through all our days, nights and years. Faith through God eliminates all fears.   He gives us the power to believe, listen and act upon the wisdom of the living and active word that is evidence of faith, “through Christ that gives us strength”. Philippians 4:13

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

Psalm 13

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?

3 Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me.


Set Apart in Christ

God’s Word: You can be sure of this:

The Lord set apart the godly for himself.

The Lord will answer when I call to him. Psalm 4:3

Psalm 4
1 Answer me when I call to you,
O God who declares me innocent.
Free me from my troubles.
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
2 How long will you people ruin my reputation?
How long will you make groundless accusations?
How long will you continue your lies? Interlude
3 You can be sure of this:
The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to him.
4 Don’t sin by letting anger control you.
Think about it overnight and remain silent. Interlude
5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit,
and trust the Lord.
6 Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”
Let your face smile on us, Lord.
7 You have given me greater joy
than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

Wisdom Shared:  Beloved … You have been set apart in Christ. More importantly you are loved!  When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior; You are empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit through the joy  of the Lord-Christ who gives us strength.  There is no other power in entire universe that can bring us peace in our troubles… healing that leads to restoration – through redemption. Last month we celebrated Christ’ birth that brings salvation to one and all. Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us. Ephesians 5:2 NIV ~  It is a priceless gift bring us to his eternal glory!  Submission unto Him, brings great reward.  Even in our time of suffering he empowers us for glory.  Our story becomes HIS-STORY of love grace through the glory of the Lord.  Yes, beloved you are a living testimony of God’s loving grace.  My Encouragement for you Beloved; …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 – New Living Translation
