The Promise keeper! JESÚS

“Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.” Revelation 22:7

Have you been disheartened by someone unable to keep a promise? One of life’s unavoidable heartbreaks is experiencing the reality and ramifications of a broken promise. Regrettably, for many people, a promise signifies an empty assurance that is too good to be true. Scripture is full of promises – past, present, and future. Fortunately, God’s promises are infallible.

In today’s fragile and volatile economic, social, environmental, and moral climate, many believers look for their blessed hope – the promise of Jesus’ return. Jesus speaks extensively about returning and reiterates to His followers to be ready, because He promises, “I will come again and receive you to Myself.” (John 14:3, KJV)

Consequently, the disciples’ lives reflected the credibility and certainty of Jesus’ perfect promise. They knew Jesus would return at an appointed time. Paul assure us: “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise…but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9, KJV) God never makes promises He cannot keep – that would contradict His nature.

Are you living life as if Jesus’ return is imminent? Time is short. As His betrothed bride, we must intentionally discern the signs of the times and live each day with urgency and expectancy – watching and praying, as a worthy bride prepares and awaits, anticipating her groom’s return. May He find us working faithfully – living life on the assurance of His infallible promise. “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that I can faithfully and completely trust Your Word– Your promises are infallible. Protect me from a distraction.  Help me to realize time is short and to live life with urgency, integrity, and authenticity – fully realizing that Jesus is coming soon. In the name of your Son JESÚS.
Amen.
God Bless you richly, yours truly Sister Wanda

One step at a time!

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. Hebrews 11:8 ESV

The Lord told Abram to leave his fathers house and country and travel to a land that He would show him in Genesis, Chapter 12. After this it simply says, “So Abram went as the Lord had told him.” What a step of faith it was for Abram to leave his country and his family, without even knowing where he was going.

Only the first step of Gods plan was revealed to him: leave this place. Later after Abram obeyed, God gave him the next step. He walked with God one step at a time, often not understanding why or where. When God tested Abram by asking him to sacrifice Issac, do you think that he wondered why? I would have.

At this point God had not done anything for Abram yet, except to tell him to leave his home. Yet he stayed positive, completely convinced that God was able to do what He had told him. Abram did not have to leave his country at all if he had chosen not to. He made a choice to do what God told him and now we read about Abraham, the father of nations. If Abram had chosen not to go, God would have used someone else and we might be reading about someone named Faith – the father of nations.

Many times in my life I did not understand what the Lord was doing or why. I just had to take that next step and trust that the problem was going to work itself out, and it did, time after time after time. And this exactly day I still am away from my Comfort zone, and away from my Lovely family, and still can say the Journey has been very hard, but I have kept my Faith in the Lord, so I tell you,
If you hold onto what God has told you and walk through the doors that He opens for you, things will work out. Though it is a narrow path lined with thorns, He has cleared the way in front of you. Stop looking to the left or the right, and focus on Jesus. Trust Him and do not let fear and unbelief hold you back. You do not have to understand where this is going or why, because He does.
Thank you Lord Jesus, for taking control and helping me take one step at a time!
God Bless you abundantly!

His all Sufficient!

“Jesus replied, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’” John 6:35, NLT

Many wander through life, wondering if this is all there is. Maybe live hungry for something more, often feeling drained, worn and tired. Jesus takes authority over this age-old problem, for He tells us He is the Great I Am. He is more than sufficient for our every need, burden, or pain. He alone can fill every hole in our hearts.

Our all-sufficient God satisfies, for all is fulfilled in Him. In Him we are no longer hungry. In Him our thirst that seemed endless is finally quenched. In Him is Life, a life filled with the abundant fruit of His Spirit here on Earth, and a life everlasting with Him for all eternity.

This life is full of hurt, pain, and suffering, but this life is not all there is. There is all-sufficient life given to us by the Great I Am, our Creator – our Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ.

Reflect on these lyrics by David Crowder, and seek the One who seeks you, the One who offers to satisfy you hunger and quench your thirst.

There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place where we can’t find peace
There’s no end to Amazing Grace
Take me in with Your arms spread wide
Take me in like an orphan child
Never let go, never leave my side

~David Crowder, “I Am”, Neon Steeple

Father, open my eyes that I may see. Open my heart that I may know and understand how sufficient You are. Lord I don’t want to hunger and thirst anymore. Fill me Oh Lord; let my cup overflow with all of who You are, because of what You have done for me. I want to rest in Your all-sufficient grace, no longer needing anything of this world. What I really need is You, my Great I Am.In the name of Jesus Christ.
Amen.

God is taking applications of BROKEN HEARTS!

“Listen to God with a broken heart. He is not only the doctor who mend’s it, but also the Father who wipes away your tiers!

image

Broken hearts either break us or send us to our knees. Our Father meets us anywhere anytime. It’s on our knees that He finds us desperately seeking Him and knows how dependent we are on Him. He is so ready to walk with, direct and comfort us. Find a quiet place and let your knees bend toward him.

God Bless you richly!

GOD Says I Am here!

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

Frequently, the LORD uses this verse to comfort and strengthen me when my perceived personal limitations and overwhelming circumstances ambush me with fear. To be dismayed means to suddenly lose your courage. When encountering surprise or crisis, do you suddenly lose your courage?

image

“I am with you…I am your God,” says the LORD. Regardless of personal circumstances or perceived limitations, remember His own words: “I am with you.” There is no need to be afraid or to suddenly lose your courage. The Lord is not going to stop being your God!

He affirms: I will give you what you need – I will strengthen you from within and I will help you to overcome and to walk through any circumstance you may face. When you feel like you are sinking in the midst of your storm, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

You can completely trust these promises – your God gives them to you. He is with you – to calm your fears, to give you strength, and to help you – providing everything you need to do His will. He has the wisdom, the strength, the ability, and the sovereignty to uphold you with His perfect right hand. He is able to support you and keep you in the midst of your current life circumstances.

Listen to His assuring whisper: “Don’t be afraid – don’t allow your courage to fail – call upon Me – I AM here. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

LORD, thank You that You promise to be with me, to help me, to strengthen and uphold me. Help me receive this promise to me today and for the days ahead. May my heart be at peace, knowing that You promise to uphold me with Your righteous right hand
In Jesus name Amen!
God Bless you!
