Dealing with Problems

I learned from dealing with myself, people in recovery from addictions and most people in general:

We only want the pain and consequences of our sins  to go away but we do not want to deal with the root of our problem.

Until we do, we are doomed to return to this place again and again. 

Taken from the upcoming book Jonah by Dennis Stauffer

 

Psalm 68:18

Are you feeling down and thinking things are not going your way?  I did this morning and the Lord encouraged me with this verse.  So let me also share it with you!

Psalm 68:19. Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah (NKJV)

 

Just like his mercies and grace are renewed each morning, so are our His blessing, He loads us with them daily. Praise God.

What are you blessing of Salvation?  Adoption in the family of God, Healing, Provision, Protection and Prosperity.  These are yours when you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

Let these words encourage you today as they did me.

Do You Really Trust Him?

John 10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

If you cannot trust Jesus for healing, provisions and protection in this life:

Do you think you can really believe you can trust Him for eternity in the next?

Your eternal life has already began, do not wait to die to enjoy it!

Something to meditate on!

Hypocrites?

Why do non-believers believe Christian are hypocrites?

When the initiation into to Christianity (so to speak) is as follows: To even enter into God kingdom, one must realize, they are never worthy in themselves. It is only on Jesus’s works alone, that will never change!

Charles Spurgeon said it perfectly:

“The first link between my soul and Christ is not my goodness but my badness, not my merit but my misery, not my riches but my need.”

 En Espanol: 

Por qué creen que los no creyentes cristianos son hipócritas?

 
Cuando la iniciación al cristianismo (por así decirlo) es la siguiente: hasta para entrar en el reino de Dios, uno debe darse cuenta, que nunca se digno en sí mismos. Sólo en Jesús está trabaja solo, eso nunca cambiará!
Charles Spurgeon lo dijo perfectamente:
 
” la primera conexión entre mi alma y Cristo no es Dios mío pero mi maldad, no es mi mérito pero mi miseria, no mis riquezas pero mi necesidad.”

Are You In A Spiritual Wilderness?

Do you feel like you are in a spiritual wilderness or not sure where to turn or what to do?  This  devotional blessed me:

O Lord God, Thou knowest! Ezek. xxxvii. 3. Here is the response of faith. “Thou knowest!”—what a pillow for the heart to repose upon! “Thou knowest!”—what few but comprehensive words to sum up and express the heart’s difficulties and perplexities and trials. “Thou knowest!”—what an inexpressibly sweet resting-place in the midst of life’s tumultuous heavings; in the midst of a sea that knows no calm; in the midst of a scene in which tossings to and fro are the hourly history! What an answer they contain for every heart that can find no words to express its big emotions; for a heart whose sorrows are too deep for language to find its way to God! Oh, that they were ever uppermost in the soul, as the response to every difficulty in our path! They are God’s answer to everything we cannot fathom; God’s answer for our hearts to rest upon, and our lips to utter, when every way is hedged up so that we cannot pass. “O Lord God, thou knowest!” Rest here, believer. Lean thy soul on these words. Repose calmly on the bosom of thy God, and carry them with thee into every scene of life. “O Lord God, thou knowest.”—F. Whitfield.

Where The Battle Is Won

2 Corinthians 10:5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

 Every battle is first won or lost in one’s own mind!

What Am I Worth To God? What Is My Value?

Here is an analogy I once learned:

Take a brand new 100 dollar bill. Crumple it in your hand, then throw it on the floor and walk all over it, next look down and spit on it and spill a drink on it. I want you to treat the 100 dollar bill as bad as you can without destroying it. Now pick it up, wipe it off and then go to the store and ask the clerk how much that hundred dollar bill is worth? It is worth a 100 dollars, nothing has changed it.

Now take a Christian. Crush him, throw him on the ground and then walk all over him. Next, you can spit on him and denigrate him. As a Christian, he also can fall, come up short and never make the so-called mark. How much is he worth? He is worth the same as he was when Christ died for him, nothing has changed.

Remember, no matter what happens to you as a Christian, you are always the righteous of God, you have been saved and declared righteous by the King of Kings and nothing can ever change that. No matter how much you mess up in this world, just like the hundred dollars, your worth never changes in the eyes of the Savior. He died for you.

What if I never excepted Jesus?

If you never gave your life to Jesus or you have tried to live a religious life and trying to earn your way to heaven.

So if you are not sure: Ask this question: Am I going to heaven when I die? If you say: “I do not know” or “yes,I believe I am a good person!” BOTH answer will disqualify you!

Only Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. You owed a sin debt to God, in which you could never pay. So in order for God to make you sinless and righteous, He became man (Jesus) and died for you. Your debt is paid, so all you need to do is to except Jesus gift to you. You just need to give your life to Him and ask:

“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
