Unspotted

A boat doesn’t sink because it is in the water; it sinks because the water get into it! – Billy Graham

Christians do not fail because they’re in the world but the world has gotten into them!

James 1:27  Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Are You Waiting For God to Direct You?

Are you waiting around for your ministry?  You might be called to your first work and not even realize it. Always remember, before God can use you in ministry, you must be usable. (not perfect)

Here is a word from the Lord:

Remember your great field of labor is yourself. That is your first task, the weeding, the planting, digging, pruning, bearing fruit. When that is done, I lead you out into other fields.

Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me (Devotional)

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

If you find yourself beginning to love any pleasure better than your prayers. any book better than your Bible, any house better than God’s, any table better than the Lords’s, any person better than your Savior, any one better than your soul, a present indulgence better than the hope of Heaven – TAKE ALARM! (Guthrie)

Dead Church

 

Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.

 

I believe the reason we have so many dead churches. We follow the opposite as described in the Bible. We have more ministers who spends more time in doctrine, schools and seminaries than alone time with Jesus. There is no substitute for ministry than the time you spend alone with Jesus.

The Word of Faith Prayer

A Prayer and Confession of Faith,  

The Lords is my Shepherd, I shall not want.

The Lord is my light and my salvation, who shall I fear. 

The Lord is the strength of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid. 

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and He shall supply all my needs according to His riches in Glory.

He also forgives all my iniquities and heals all my DISEASES.

He redeems my life from destruction. 

He will satisfies my mouth with good things. 

He will never leaves me or forsakes me. 

My job is to believe and God will perform His Word in my life. 

But we who seek the Lord, shall not lack any good thing. 

 For He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.

and I with all the saints will be able to comprehend what is the width and length and the depth and height, to know the Love of Christ which passes knowledge; that I may be filled with all the fullness of God. 

The Bible declares; let the weak say I am strong. 

We now thank God who always leads me to triumph in Christ, because with men this is impossible, 

but with God all things are possible in my life, as I serve God with all of my heart and  life. 

The Lord declares; I will never leave you or forsake you, so we boldly say, The Lord is my helper,

I will not fear what man can do to me! 

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro through the whole earth to show Himself strong on the behalf of those who are loyal to Him. 

So I humble myself under the mighty power of God and in His good time He will honor me. 

So I can boldly say; I give all my worries and cares to God, for He cares what happens to me. 

Amen!     

Written by Dennis W Stauffer Jr through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God through out the years of serving him. 

 You have my permission to print and share this prayer with anyone who will be blessed. 

 

Helmet of Salvation (Rick Renner)

I have been sharing this for weeks. Today found it in one of my devotionals, that I read every morning.  Friends do not let the devil or your traditions of  your Church steal from you!

If your salvation is not worn tightly around your mind like a helmet, the enemy will come to chop the multiple blessings of your salvation right out of your theology. He will try to hack away at your foundation, telling you that healing, deliverance, preservation, and soundness of mind were not really a part of Jesus’ redemptive work on the Cross. By the time the enemy is finished with your mind, the only blessing he will leave you with is Heaven!   (From Rick Renner Aug 4 Sparking Gem)
