Today Reminder – 24 April 2017



A reminder for today
And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God's house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10:21-22)

Whom do you trust? Where do you place your trust? It is funny, but circumstances can destroy trust and trust is something that is in some instances very hard to earn. Crime and corruption in our country has merely destroyed trust in our fellow citizens. We close up and we just stop trusting people. However, what about your trust in tomorrow? What do you trust that tomorrow will be ok? Some people have a large savings account that they believe will help them, other people trust their possessions and think that wealth will take them through tomorrow. So many people think that their future is safe in their own hands, yet we know that anything can happen and we do not have control over all. So why would you trust your worldly possessions to keep you from despair. Where did those things that we value so much come from? You see, God gave us life. Then He blessed us with talents and gifts like sight and intelligence so that we are able to get a job. Then He blessed us with an income so that we can live. Nothing that we are is because we are so cool. We did not make ourselves, and we surely did not buy our talents. So all that we are is because God gave it to us. Therefore, if God gave us so much, why do we need to place our trust in anything other than Him? Why do we think we alone can foresee all that awaits us in the future? 

I have said it before and I do not care to say it again. My trust is in Jesus Christ. He is, He was, and He will always be. If He has taken care of me for so long therefore, He will surely do it forever. So, in other words nothing that I have is in fact mine, because I received it out of His gracious hand. Then why am I so reluctant to help other? It is, because my trust is not in the right place. Now, come with me and let us place our trust completely in the Lord and let us help those in need. Do not let the enemy confuse you and keep you from the blessing of blessing someone else. This world is temporary and soon it will all be gone. What then? Will you stand before God in fear of a life wasted or will you stand in amazement with a life lived for His glory and enter into heaven? Where is your trust? Mine is in Jesus Christ and I will not waste another moment listening to the lies of a fallen enemy.

Lord, in you I place all my trust and all my fears and I pray that you will heal our lands and show your glory as we unite in prayer. To you we give all the praise and all the glory. Let us live for you alone. In Jesus name. 

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.

Cheers

Today Reminder – 21 April 2017

A reminder for today
And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:27-28)

It is Friday and it is a beautiful day. My day started with work, work and more work and work. We are finalizing our skills build and time is running out. Anyway, we visited my brother in law yesterday and when we said goodbye it was dark already. They live a little outside of the city and the night sky was just amazing as it was filled with stars. They were so beautiful that I stood for a moment amazed at the sight. It reminded me that the heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. And I felt the Lord. 

My dear friend, we have a destiny, and it is to be with our Lord in heaven for eternity and we eagerly await Him. Therefore, I will glorify His name and I will let the world see His glory. It is Friday and you must have an awesome weekend. Take a moment this weekend and look up at the skies. Hear the voice of the Lord and feel His presence. You are a child of God and you are a most precious gem. You are free from sin and the boundaries of this world, because with our awesome God we can walk on water. 

Lord, you are my life and the very breath I breathe. Holy is your name and all the glory is for you. Let us soar today and through this weekend as we bring you more glory. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.

Cheers

Today Reminder – 20 April 2017



A reminder for today
Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God's promises because of their faith and endurance. (Hebrews 6:11-12)

What do you hope for? Hope can be such a small word, but it can have massive implications. Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen. To trust that something will happen. Everywhere in this world people face different challenges and each one goes through the turmoil of loss and a desperate need for hope. In Matthew 12 God says that Jesus’s name will be the hope of all the world. We live in a dark world that desperately needs light. The birth of Jesus Christ, who is God’s salvation, brought the light that offers hope to a world of despair.

In order to hope in Christ, first we must recognize Jesus for who He is: God’s Christ, the only way of salvation. The most crucial question in life for each person to answer is the one Jesus asked His disciples: “But who do you say that I am?” Peter gave the correct answer to Jesus’ question: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus affirmed that answer, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven”

Whether you’re suffering from a difficult disease or grieving the loss of a loved one or facing overwhelming trials of some other nature, you can have hope if you will trust Jesus Christ as God’s salvation for you. He has won the victory. Those who hope in Him will not be disappointed!

In the end our greatest desire, must be Jesus and Him alone. In Him, we find hope and love which we can in turn give to other.  Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God's promises because of their faith and endurance.

Lord, you are all I want. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
