Give it to Him to Succeed.

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this Psalm 37:5 New International Version

I have known for two years that God has called me to be a Christian writer.

One morning during morning prayers I was talking with God about it and mentioned how even though I have spent two years faithfully obeying His calling there has not been enough money to pay the monthly bills.

Here is how He answered my prayers:

One of the morning devotions sent to me email every morning had the above verse in it.

That afternoon while listening to an online sermon, the preacher mentioned that once we become Christians we are assigned a task by God that He has prepared for us to do.

That evening another preacher online quoted this verse: Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD. Proverbs 16:20 New International Version

Each time I felt God saying to me: You know what my plans are for you. As long as you follow my plans I will take care of you.

A feeling of calm reassurance came over me.

I do not expect to become a millionaire with the writings but have complete faith my needs are and will be taken care of by God.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for promising and fulfilling Your promise to me in a most wonderful and gracious way. I give thanks in the name of He who provides a way to Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

By Being Obedient Unto

Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. Philippians 2:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Once we become Christians we become servants of our King, Jesus Christ.

How do we serve Jesus?

By being obedient unto The Holy Spirits guidance on where and how to serve others.

There are so many lonely seniors today you can help, so many refugee’s that need help assimilating into our society, children that need tutors. The list is endless and The Holy Spirit knows where, when and how you are best suited to help.

In each of these opportunities there is also an opportunity to share Jesus with those you are serving.

So, not only are you helping them physically and mentally, you are helping them spiritually.

You want fulfillment in life? Than learn to serve the Lord by serving others. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) for blessing with sending The Holy Spirit to help lead me to those in need of help. This endeavour blesses me to give back to You through serving others as Jesus’ free will servant. I praise You in the name of He who showed us how to be good servants, Jesus Christ Amen

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

All that Jesus Continues to Do

“All that Jesus began to do and teach” He continues to do and teach today.

In Acts 1:1 the words “all that Jesus began to do and teach” are in the linear action. It is action still going on. The verb “began” is present infinitive, linear action. It is as if to say that Jesus is still carrying on from heaven the work and teachings which He started while on earth before His ascension.

Luke does not say “all that Jesus did and taught,” but “all that Jesus began to do and to teach.” The Gospel of Luke tells us what Jesus began to do and teach, while Acts of the Apostles tells what He continues to do and teach by His Spirit through His special Body.

In Volume 1 of the Life and Acts of Jesus Christ, Dr. Luke tells the story of the beginnings of what Jesus began to do and teach. In his Gospel, Luke gave “the first account I composed, Theophilis, about all that Jesus began to do and teach.” What was it Jesus began to do and teach?

In Luke 4:16-21 Jesus stood in the synagogue at Nazareth and read Himself into His divine office. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” Then Jesus closed the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, sat down, and with the eyes of all the synagogue fixed upon Him said to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing” (vv. 20-21).

Those verses tell us what Jesus began to do leading up to His atoning death for our sins on the cross. What Jesus taught is summarized beautifully in Luke 24:25-27 as He reminded the two disciples on the road to Emmaus. “‘Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?’ Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.”

In the opening words of his second volume, Acts of the Apostles, Luke tell us what Jesus is still carrying on from heaven. He is still working and teaching, doing the same thing He started while on earth before His ascension. In volume two Luke tells us all that Jesus continues to do and teach after His ascension through His present spiritual Body here on the earth (2 Cor. 5:14-151821).

What does Jesus continue both to do and teach through His present body on the earth?

Every born again believer is a member of the special Body with specific spiritual gifts that are needed by His Body. God places every member in a local church to accomplish His redemptive purposes through that church. He saved you by grace and put you in a local Bible believing church to accomplish His will on this earth (Eph. 1:22-234:11-131 Cor. 12:12ff27Rom. 12:56).

You were given at least one spiritual gift for a purpose when God saved you. If you are not exercising your gift not only do you fail to fulfill your mission, but also the Body of Christ does not function to its fullest potential.

The Body of Christ has authority to continue to do and see to completion all that Jesus began to do and teach (Matt. 28:18-20Acts 1:8). The risen Lord is the head of the church. He is continuing to do in and through you and me all that He began to do and teach. He has given us all the authority and power we need to accomplish His will. We are a specially equipped Body with power and authority to continue to do what Jesus began to do and teach. Will you say to Him, “Lord, whatever You direct me to do in relation to your Body, I will do. I am your servant for your purposes.”

When God gives you a divine assignment to accomplish His will, and purpose, you must depend upon Him alone to accomplish it. Why? Because it is His work, not yours. Since it is a God-sized task you must depend on God alone. Who is continuing to work? Christ does no ask you to do His work in your abilities, gifts, likes and dislikes. We must be totally available to Him and depend upon Him to do His work.

What chapter are you writing in Volume 2022 of the Life and Acts of Jesus Christ? Where is God at work in your life? What is He doing and teaching through you to accomplish His eternal purposes? Selah!

Our Identity is to Be

Our identity is to be rooted in the Imago Dei, in the image of God. But we’ve gotten so ingrained in the thinking of the culture, that we wind up being parakeets to what the society is saying, rather than taking a solid, loving but clear stance on what God is saying. Pastor Tony Evans

He is Our Refuge City.

Select some towns to be your cities of refuge, to which a person who has killed someone accidentally may flee. They will be places of refuge from the avenger, so that anyone accused of murder may not die before they stand trial before the assembly. Numbers 35-11, 12 New International Version

Just as in the Old Testament times someone who accidently killed someone could and would take sanctuary in a city of refuge.

So too do we have a city of refuge in Christ.

He will protect us from the dangers of the devil and his demons who want to kill our spirit. When they attack us we take refuge in the protection of Christ’s loving strong arms. Oh they may hurt or destroy our body but our spirit will be protected by Jesus.

It is equally important to remain in Jesus’ city because if we do not then we are fair game for the evil ones.

Don’t you think that is why there are so many addicts and murders today?

Because they are not in Christ’s city, they are open to demonic forces that not only destroy them but also many innocent others.

Take shelter in Jehovahs strong arms. It is the safest place to be. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Shammah (God is present) for being the strong undefeatable city we can take sanctuary in to protect us from satan and his minions. Please give me the wisdom and strength to always remain in Your impenetrable fortress. I give thanks and request this in Your strong and mighty name. Amen.
