Yes, if you take a step in the right direction, Jesus can change your situation and replace it with a Testimony. You must be decided, when you look to The Lord for Answered Prayers – no looking back. Don’t settle for the status quo in life – when He called you to an Abundant Life. Forget the televangelists money-schemes and their emphasis on being rich. They have the emphasis all wrong. There’s nothing wrong with money, if you’re not bound by the love of it, but Jesus calls us as His Children, to be Rich in Blessings…..and…..to carry His Blessings to those around us. That is Abundant Life (a fuller life). If you need healing or restoration, for instance, money and riches would not be abundant life for you, but healing and restoration would be, would’nt it?
I THINK THE TELEVANGELIST’S GET RICH SCHEMES SERVE AS A MAJOR DISTRACTION (for many) FROM SEEKING AND LIVING IN THE PLANS OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS FOR US.…
When Sharing the Good News of Jesus
Many people have commented through the years about the Natural way I share Jesus and that they find my company “pleasant”.
It is important to realize the Expression of Jesus has been hindered in the lives of many Christians because the modern day way of getting together has altered drastically when Constantine changed things in 330AD after Christ came. I want to tell you something, and it’s this_ JESUS did not want things that way much less commission it.
Constantine was self-commissioned and much of the LIFE in Christianity went out of it…..so we have what we face Today: uninviting to people and to Christians often – they feel stifled by this, unable to breathe, so to speak.
I will share with you a Refreshing View. Come with me.
I like to inspire Christians to share about Jesus in a natural way.…
Why do Miracles happen for some? Why do some of us have more Answered Prayers than others?
I have one key phrase for that: It is desire that leads to miracles and what you do with that desire.
The same with Answered Prayers!
Desire is not a passive word – many of us want something from God, even desperately sometimes but are complacent about it. Often, He is waiting for us to search Him out in a situation – seeking is not passive or half -hearted either, it has to do with seeking Him with all our heart and strength, like Jesus words “to love Him with all our heart and mind and strength”……..there are so many distractions that fill our day and evening, so many things that capture our attention……quite willingly……things we like a lot often.
We should ask ourselves, are we as willing to seek after Him?…
YOU HAVE HEARD THE SAYING
“GOD IS A GOOD GOD!”
We need to develop our own testimony of this.
One we can draw on in life’s situations –
for ourselves and others instead of resignation.
Do you let your heart sink down when circumstances show up?
Sometimes they are intended for evil (to cause you to fret and get you down)
but we need to take on a resilience in God, not to let them make us frown.
Take courage my friend, there are ANSWERS.
You may have also heard the following scripture:
“I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU. PLANS FOR YOUR WELFARE
AND NOT FOR EVIL – TO GIVE YOU HOPE and A FUTURE” (Jer 29:11)
Another version says to prosper you and NOT to harm you.
We need to be settled in our hearts and minds that
GOD IS GOOD
(not half the things that would rush through our minds at times).
How Closely do you Know Him?
Confidence is about a person, it’s always about a person – not a theory or a technique. So build your confidence around the Person of God. Spend time in His Presence. This is the way we come to know Him. Acquaint yourself with Scriptures that speak of His Goodness, His Grace and Kindness.
Many of us need a clear picture of Him – situations and circumstances may have clouded our Image of Him. Even lots of sermons can do that. Especially if they don’t portray Him well. Don’t rely on someone’s impression of Him but rather press in to know Him and you will be GLAD YOU DID!
“SEEK TO KNOW ME, THAT’S ALL YOU HAVE NEED. SEEK MY DIRECTION AND
FOLLOW ME. FOR THERE I WILL LEAD YOU TO PASTURES GREEN
WHERE THE RIVER OF LIFE DOES FREELY FLOW”
(a song He gave me years ago)
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose trust the LORD is.…
