A Friday Prayer and Message!

Friday, May 27, 2011

A Glorious Morning To Everyoone! Thank you for your comments and responses. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Most High God! We pray today that we may receive the power to comprehend what is the breath and length and height and depth of your love, and that we may be filled with all the fullness of our loving God. Help us not to plan our own life because that would be small, but help us to allow You to be the Great planner for our life because that would be BIG. Enable us to take You at your Word today and everyday. Guide us as we go forward in faith, that love beyond our knowleadge or any measure in us may abound in Christ Jesus our Lord, because with Him all things are possible. His love for us is limitless; so let our faith in Him be limitless. This we ask and pray in His glorious name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. Can you name some work that God has done for us?
a. Here is one of my favorite: Rom 8:28,
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose".
1. Do you believe what this verse says, "That all things work together for good to them that love God"? God has proven this to me time and time again.
2. Do you love God? How much do you love God? Has He proven to you what this verse says? Did something good come from what we thought was something bad?
3. Has He not called you according to His Eternal Purpose? What is his Eternal Purpose for you and me? Is it not to put off the old man, put on the new man, and give the new man complete control of our life so we can spend eternity with HIM?
2. Think about this! Is there not a condition on this work and promise? Is this condition not for those who love Him and have been called and answered that call according to His Eternal Purpose? To Be Continued Monday!

May we be blessed and our prayers answered today. In His Love, Vic.

A Thursday Prayer and Message!

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Goooooooooooooooooooood Morning Everyone! Destruction and death are tied together. When we pursue or find one, we will also find the other. So what is our alternatice?
JESUS! Praise God!

PRAYER: " Merciful Father, Redeeming God! You warned us that in faithfulness Jesus will bring forth justice. Like a lawn fill with weeds, He will destroy the weeds and save the grass that He might have a beautiful lawn. While destruction might seem like a strange place to find grace, God is there administering justice and offering mercy. Jesus is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat and uprooting the weeds that threaten a single green blade of righteousness. Create in us O God, a clean heart. Put a new spirit within us, an oobedient and loving spirit. Help us to repent of our sins and clear us from all hidden faults so we will not die spiritually, but rather live with You throughout all eternity. This we pray in Jesus' glorious name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. God has given us His formula for what we need to do in order to change our life in accordance with His will.
a. The formula has three parts and is found in Eph 4:22-24.
1. We need to put off the old man.
2. We need to put on the new man.
3. We need to renew our minds by turning all power and control to the new man.
b. We have seen 4 STEPS out of 12 STEPS on how to change our mind.
1. Change our purpose in Life.
2. Believe we can change with the help of God.
3. Study the Bible about our habits.
4. Repent of our sins.
c. And now, STEP #5: Develop a Plan of Action!
1. What's the problem? Prov 14:22 says, "Do they not go astray that devise evil?"
2. Not willing to change our minds completely is the same as going astray.
3. In God's eyes this is evil.
4. God has developped and provided for us a plan of action.
5. We must therefore follow His Plan.
3. Think about this! Does the Bible give us anyone else to follow besides Jesus? "NO!"
Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life, and no man comes unto the Father except through me". Jesus brings us justice and offers mercy.....which one do you want?
To Be Continued Tomorroow!

May God Be Merciful unto us and bless uus by His Apponted One, Jesus Christ.
In His Mercy, Vic.

A Wednesday Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

A Blessed Morning To Everyone! Thank you for your comments and responses. Give God all the praise and glory.

PRAYER: "Loving Father, Gracious God! Teach us how to respond to Your great LOVE in a very positive way. Help us to grasp the true meaning of the word "LOVE", a love as great as Yours. You laid down Your life for us so that we might live forever with You. Teach us to lay down our life for You in serving your etrnal purpose for us. Enable our response to You loving us first, to be a selfless act of love for You. Enable us to love You wholeheartedly in return and to serve You with all of our heart, soul and mind. This we pray in the blessed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. Just being sorry for our sins is not enough!
a. 2 Cor 7:10 says it has to be a "Godly sorrow that works repentance unto salvation".
b. Just being sorry is regrets for having been caught and exposed.
c. God grants every accountable person the ability to please Him.
1. So we are able to completely change.
2. God provides everything we need to change.
3. The decision then is ours.
2. Think about this! We will never change until we make up our mind to diligently pursue the means God has provided. The decision to do this is repentance. And no one will change to please God without it. To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God help us all to understand that there is only one acceptable way, and that is the way God has set before us to follow Jesus. In His Love and Grace, Vic.

A Tuesday Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

ALOHA Everyone! How devastating the weather has been so far this year! Let's remember to pray for all those being affected by it and let's do what we can to help them. Praise God!

PRAYER: "Glorious Father, Almighty God! Please forgive all of them who know not what they are doing. Deliver us all from the devastation that is taking place, and from the one to come. Help us to forgive others the way You forgive us. We praise You for You forgive us, the unforgivable. Enable us to also to forgive the unthinkable just like You. Help us to take our focus off whether people deserve justice or not, and to focus our hearts and minds on forgiving others. Help us to be a light in this world of darkness and destruction, and to extend a helping hand to those in need, whether they be friend or foe. Above all, teach us to serve and do good works to Your glory. This we pray in Jesus' Blessed name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. If we are to change our life so that we may follow Jesus, than REPENTANCE of our sins is vital.
a. Acts 17:30 - teaches us that repentace is a command: "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men every where to REPENT". WHY?
1. Becauuse there is a resurrection and judgment day coming.
2. Therefore let us seek God and turn to Him although He is never far from us.
b. Acts 11:23 - exhorts us to come and see the grace of God, to encourage others with purpose of heart to cleave unto the lord. WHY?
1. Because unless we repent of our sins:
a. We will never be allowed to enter the kingdom of heavem (Matt 7:21).
b. We will not be doing the will of the Father.
2. Think about this! Why call Jesus Lord, Lord, if we dictate our own terms and do not follow God's will? God sent Jesus to save us from devastation and destruction. Are we going to follow Jesus or are we going to set out on our own? These are the two choices we have. So decide today! As for me and my household, we will follow Jesus. To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God open our eyes and hearts and help us to see and understand that there is only one right choice that will allow us to enter heaven, and all other choices are wrong and will prevent us from entering heaven.

In His Love, Grace and Mercy, Vic.

A Monday Prayer and Message!

Monday, May 23, 2011

Goooooooooooooood Morning Everyone! We had a wonderful weekend at Kingsville, Tx, and we are grateful for it but glad to be home again. Praise God and give Him all the glory.

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Glorious God! We are indeed grateful for family ties, both physically and Spitiually. You have bless us not only with a physical family, but allso with a Spiritual family. For these two blessings we thank You! You bless us with opportunities to witness and to be examples one to another. Let our faith be a hertiage for all our family members. Thank You for revealing to us so many examples of faith anf love. Help our faith to increase daily as we draw closer to Jesus who is our example, as we lift Him up for all the world to see. This we pray and ask in His precious name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. We have now seen three STEPS on how we can change our life to reflect the will of God:
a. STEP #1 - Change our purpose in life.
b. STEP #2 - Believe we can change with the help of God.
c. STEP #3 - Study the Bible about our Habits.
2. Now, here is STEP #4 - Repent of our sins.
a. Acts 6:22 teaches us to repent - "Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray to God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven".
1. Sin is wickedness, lawlessness, and disobedience to God's Law and Will.
2. The requirement is three fold:
a. Repent.
b. Pray.
c. Ask for forgiveness.
3. God is faithful to forgive if we truly repent.
4. We cannot pull the wool over God's eyes.
5. Therefore, our repentance must be genuine.
3. Think about this! We waste our own predious time when we pretend to repent when our heart has not fully repented. We may be able to fool others, but not God. How important is repentance? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God help us to repent and seek His mercy so we may draw closer to Him each day.
In His Mercy, Vic.
