God Protects His Children

protection

Good Christians Must Realize That God’s Protection Is Always Present

Abraham feared for his life, and he asked Sarah his wife to call him a brother to confuse King Abimelech. The man thought Abimelech’s people might take his wife and kill him. However, Abraham, who thought he was smart to lie in an attempt to protect his identity had failed to realize that his God was able to protect him from all evils.

The story of Abraham’s irrational decision to hide his identity was reported;

“Now Abraham said of Sarah his wife, “She is my sister.” And Abimelech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah. But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, “Indeed you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a man’s wife.” But Abimelech had not come near her; and he said, “Lord, will you slay a righteous nation also? Did he not say to me, ‘She is my sister’? And she, even she herself said, ‘He is my brother.’ In the integrity of my heart and innocence of my hands, I have done this.” And God said to him in a dream, “Yes, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart. For I also withheld you from sinning against me; therefore I did not let you touch her. Now therefore, restore the man’s wife; for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you shall live. But if you do not restore her, know that you shall surely die, you and all who are yours” (Genesis 20:2-7).

God’s Mercies Never Cease

Christians must understand that our God is ever able to protect us from our enemies. No matter what situation comes our way, God will protect us, and he will also glorify himself. Therefore, instead of any believer entertaining doubt and/or seeking an ungodly alternative solution, he should exercise faith. He should remind himself of the promises of God that are listed in the bible to edify his faith.

The scripture states, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33). God is well and able to take care of his children. He will rescue us in times of trouble, irrespective of the source and occurrence, and whether the mistakes come from us or others. God will still be God; he will come to the aid of his people to glorify himself. Hence, believers must rest assured in God always. We must make professions of faith with full expectations. God’s victory is sure over us, as “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

Life is full of hassles and sometimes, the road can be a little rough. Sometimes, we are faced with challenges that we cannot tell where they originated from. God wants us to remember that he is ready to defend us every time, because he loves us unconditionally.

Pray For Grace To Trust In God

Dear God, please teach me how to trust you during adversity. Help me to express my absolute trust in you always. Increase my faith to always profess a statement of faith during adversity. Give me the strength to declare “I know my God whom I serve, and he will deliver me from every lion and every Goliath of life.” Please turn my tough situation around to become my testimony so that unbelievers can hear it and tremble. Let my faith remain firm in you so that I can continue to declare your testimony of goodness in the land of the living. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

GOD CREATED US FOR A PURPOSE – Matthew

value

Live Your Life With A Purpose!

(Passage: Matthew 1)

We are here on earth for a specific purpose to achieve. We don’t have the same purpose since God created everyone distinctly special. Therefore our grace and talents are different. However, no matter what our individual purposes maybe, we still share three common ones, which are to love God, serve God, and love other people.

You are born with a purpose, live up to it!

While we can explain our purposes differently, our common and major purpose remains to serve God with all our hearts!

How well are you fulfilling your purpose?

Let’s learn from Jesus how he fulfilled his purpose on earth. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was not just another child born by two parents. He was born of God! God commissioned him from heaven to proclaim his kingdom and save humanity.

Jesus’s life from birth was all about his purpose!

The birth story of Jesus Christ was completely different from any other human being. Mary, his mother did not conceive him out of a relationship with any man. She was conceived by the Holy Spirit. That is, the presence of God descended on Mary and he was found pregnant with a child to be born as Jesus Christ.

The remembrance of Jesus birth

A virgin gave birth to a miracle child and was called Jesus. This is the Bible’s account of the event.

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother, Mary, was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:18-21).

A miracle child lived up to his purpose.

Jesus, the miracle child grew in grace, strength, and power to fulfill his purpose. The scriptures stated,

“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52 NIV).

The primary mission of Jesus was to save the world. He grew in stature and advanced in age with that purpose in mind.

Jesus had his mission in mind – He must save humanity

Jesus lived a simple life. He came close to common people and preached the kingdom of God to them.

A purposeful Jesus did not only preach, but he showed love. He fed the poor and performed signs and wonders to solve people’s problems.

With the primary goal of his mission in mind, Jesus cast out evil spirits, cleaned up the temple, and spoke God’s word to his reluctant audience.

The fate of his life materialized as the enemies lied and accused Jesus of wrongdoing. They abused and killed him. But all for the benefit of accomplishing the goal of saving humanity.

Since Jesus died and resurrected for our sake, whosoever confesses him as his or her personal Lord and Savior will be saved.

Here comes the authority of Jesus’s life purpose:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 ESV).

The salvation of Jesus Christ applies to everyone who will confess him as his or her personal Lord and Savior.

Whether you are a Christian or not, you must confess Jesus as Lord to be saved.

Pray To Live Up To Your Purpose

Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that the main purpose of my existence is to love and serve you! I must confess my faith in your Son Jesus Christ to be saved; therefore, I declare today that I accept your Son Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior.

From now on, my complete life shall be dedicated to loving Jesus and serving you from the bottom of my heart. So help me God! Please count me worthy to be raptured on the last day. For I have prayed in your Son’s name Jesus Christ, Amen!

GOD’S WORK SHOULD BE YOUR TOP PRIORITY – Matthew

priority

Put God First To Make Your Blessing His Priority

(Passage: Matthew 22)

God will bless us if we can make the choice to prioritize his work. Blessings await you if you are committed to his service.

Do we have life pressure that can make serving God become the secondary focus? Absolutely. With pressure here and there, anyone would choose to prioritize other things than making God his topmost priority. But, none of those pressure can actually bail us out of our situations. Only God can. Only him blesses also!

Jesus Christ encouraged people to set things of God as their priority. God comes first, then ours become secondary.

When our hearts are far from God, we glue to the cares of the world. This, of course, is not good since it leads to the loss of blessings en route.

How can we understand when we are digressing from the goal of setting God as the priority of our lives? Jesus explained this with an illustration of one rich man in the Bible who was generous to his friends, but they took him for granted.

Jesus said;

“The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.”’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests” (Matthew 22:1-9).

Prioritizing Worldly Cares Can Make You Lose

Humans will always have needs. So, we can’t let those needs rule our world. We must choose to prioritize serving God. Above all needs, we must let the things of the Lord captivate our minds.

No joke with God. He expects us (his people) to handle all matters that are related to his kingdom seriously.

God wants people to put him first in their lives, and serve him well.

God wants us to rely on him so that he can handle our situations for us.

If you take care of God’s business, he will take care of yours.

This is no gimmick: Try to put God first in your life and see what happens after that!

Someone who has not prioritized the need to put God first in his life is more or less an idol worshipper. Remember the Ten Commandment? (Exodus 20). Those that made the top on the list are:

  • I am the Lord thy God
  • Thou shalt have no other gods before me
  • Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image

No other way of stating the obvious: People who do not prioritize serving God will lose some benefits!

Let’s make life simple for ourselves. Let’s allow God to run the show for us by making him the first in our lives.

Prioritize servicing the Lord, and you won’t regret it.

Remember:

The Creator promised to bless us if we give one hundred percent attention to him and his courses. Jehovah will not honor people who prioritize the cares of the world above him.

Pray For The Strength To Set God As Priority

Dear God, I know you want me to put you first in my life. I am sorry for allowing the cares of the world to engulf my life. From now on, I will set you a priority in my life. I will serve and obey you. I will support your courses and promote your name. Please bless me as I make the effort to make you the best of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my request. Amen.

Remember: God’s Work Should Be Your Top Priority

JESUS CHRIST PREACHED TRUE LOVE – Luke

true love

Nothing Carries More Weight Than True Love

(Passage: Luke 23)

If love and hatred are compared, love wins. True love, nothing like it! It is more special to God than anything else.

God has a true love for us (humanity) and sent us his only Son, Jesus Christ, to save us from our sins. Jesus also came here to do everything in pure love.

Since love is so important to God, you and I must understand we will never meet the threshold of becoming a true child of God without loving God and loving others.

No greater law than the requirement that we must love God with all our hearts and might. And that we must also be gracious and love other people as ourselves.

Here are these two questions you should answer:

  1. Are you a child of God?
  2. Do you have a true love for others?

Your answer must be “Yes” to those two questions to meet the requirement set by God for you to qualify for God’s kingdom. In other words, God won’t welcome you to heaven if you are not a child of God, and if you don’t truly love others at the same time.

Let’s learn from Jesus, who demonstrated what it takes to show perfect love to others.

God sent him (Jesus) to save humanity from sin. The task wasn’t easy for the Son of God because he had to deal with a difficult species.

Jesus came and preached peace and love to the people of the world. He helped the poor and did many other good things. But, people abused him.

They resented and mocked him. 

People persecuted Jesus and wished him dead. (They got that in the end).

Despite the hostility that Christ faced, he was determined to have a genuine love for the people. 

Christ loved everyone, regardless of whether they appreciate him or not.

No Rivalry For Genuine Love 

True love drove Jesus to focus on his mission to save humanity. He finished his task!

As a child of God, you are better off when you allow love to motivate you in performing your task.

Learn from Jesus Christ, who truly loved difficult people in difficult situations.

Jesus, the Son of God, responded with love when people he came to save hated him. 

When they persecuted Jesus and dragged him to the cross, he ensured to include in his final words:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do” (Luke 23:34).

Don’t forget it won’t be easy to show true love, but you must do as God required.

See what people did to Jesus, as he chose to let love rule:

  1. People and their rulers said, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if he is the Christ, the chosen of God” (Luke 23:35).
  2. The soldiers mocked him and gave him vinegar to drink (Luke 23: 36).
  3. The soldiers mocked him and said, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself” (Luke 23: 37).
  4. His accusation was written on his cross for all people to mock with “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS” (Luke 23: 38).
  5. Jesus was nailed to the cross alongside two convicted criminals (Luke 23: 39).
  6. One of the criminals mocked Jesus and said, “If you are the Christ, save yourself and us” (Luke 23: 39).
  7. Jesus cried in pain, and no one helped him; he eventually died on the cross.

Consider the characteristic of Jesus Christ, as he demonstrated true love to others:

  1. Jesus preached God’s kingdom, irrespective of any surrounding circumstance.
  2. Despite constant terror and persecutions, Jesus remained positive, and he continued to do good for people.
  3. Jesus fed the poor, raised the dead, and healed numerous diseases.
  4. (Yeah, the list of the good things that Jesus did for others is endless, but people still persecuted and killed him. But he loved his enemies.)

 

True Love Has a Consequence

You can’t love and be at a loss. It’s impossible!

Love rules at all times. Even when you consider it’s a loss, re-evaluate the situation, you will discover that love has won.

Consider this: 

Christ’s death has become our gain. We die to sin through his death, and true his resurrection, we resurrect to godliness and qualify for heaven.

 

Pray For Salvation

Dear God, I am grateful that Jesus chose love instead of hatred. I thank Jesus for enduring all things for the sake of saving poor sinners like me. What more can I do than to appreciate what Christ has done for me! Therefore, I confess my faith in Jesus Christ. I believe he is the Son of God, and I accept him as my personal Lord and Savior. From now on, I am a child of God. Glory to God in the highest! Amen.

RAPTURE IS IMMINENT – BE PREPARED! – Luke

rapture

If Rapture Is True, What Is Your Stake?

(Passage: Luke 21)

The proclamation that Rapture will occur may sound like an old story, but brace yourself, it will happen!

(Rapture means the second coming of Jesus Christ to transport believers to heaven).

It takes “Faith in Jesus Christ” to qualify for the rapture. That is, a person must first confess Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior to qualify for the rapture.

If rapture will help, when will that be?

According to the Bible, no one will know the day or time that Jesus Christ will return from heaven to transport his disciples home. No one will know the time – not even the angels know, except God alone. (Matthew 24:36).

Only God, the Father of all, knows the time that his Son Jesus will return to transport the believers to his kingdom.

A person who’s in Christ can’t relax, for now!

Believers in Jesus Christ are waiting for the return of the Lord. We must prepare and get ourselves ready. The Bible requires believers to make every effort to live peacefully, pure, and blameless in the sight of the Lord to qualify for heaven.

It is written,

“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:34-36).

Non-Christians Have An Option

People who have not confessed their faith in Jesus Christ have the choice to confess him and be saved.

There’s No Substitute For God’s Salvation Offer

The world is busy with various activities, and it is easy for anyone to get caught up, but a person who cares to think about what happens in life after death would not drop his guard.

Indeed, there are challenges that people must face on daily basis: Bills must be paid, and other life pressure exist; however, children of God must prioritize obeying God and living up to his standard.

Christians must be careful not to allow anything to affect our relationship with God.

Rapture is the reason for believers to stay alert! Whether this world likes it or not, Jesus Christ will return to rapture his saints to God’s kingdom. We must be prepared to go with him!

Anyone who misses the rapture won’t find it interesting, since the grace of God won’t be available to help anyone. Satan would seize every opportunity to carry out his evil works against those who miss the rapture.

Imagine: A scene devoid of God’s presence won’t be nice for people who miss the rapture. The best a person can do is to confess Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior before it is too late.

Proclaim The Holiness Of Jesus Christ

Dear God, I understand this vanity world will soon come to an end. You will send your Son Jesus Christ to harvest the Christians to your kingdom. Please count me worthy! Count me among the people who will be raptured to your kingdom on the last day. I know it takes the confession of faith in Jesus Christ to be saved; therefore, I confess Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I confess and repent from my sins also. Please write my name in the book of life! For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen.

GOD REWARDS THE COMMITMENT OF HIS CHILDREN

committment

Believers Must Be Committed To God’s Service

The scripture commended the courageous Jews who were determined to return from Babylon to Israel, their homeland for the purpose of repairing God’s temple. The patriotic Jews left Babylon to successfully repair God’s temple in Jerusalem as proposed. They, also, offered acceptable sacrifices to God after the completion of their works. The scripture reported their efforts;

“The children of those who had been carried away captive, who had come from the captivity, offered burnt offerings to the God of Israel: twelve bulls for all Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven lambs, and twelve male goats as a sin offering.

All this was a burnt offering to the Lord. And they delivered the king’s orders to the king’s satraps and the governors in the region beyond the River. So they gave support to the people and the house of God” (Ezra 8:35-36).

Full Commitment To God Ensures Benefits From God

People who are committed to God will not be ashamed under whatever circumstance. They will be rewarded for their commitment. God will reciprocate the goodness of their resources used for him. Jehovah will ensure that none of their efforts will be unrewarded. People who make God happy with a heart of servitude will not suffer shame, but their faces will radiate God’s glory from time to time. Their light will shine into the end of days.

Therefore, anyone who has committed himself or herself to a good course of serving God should keep up the practice; he/she will earn much benefit in return in due time. Also, a person who has not made a choice to serve God with full commitment should improve his/her practice so that he can earn much benefit from his Creator. Are you fully committed to God?

Are you fully committed to God? God loves us and is fully committed to us. He watches over us and wants us to make Him a huge part of our life. Do you think you can do this? Of course, just ask him to direct you and he will..

Pray For Help To Be Fully Committed To God

Dear God, my life will have no significant meaning if I do not fully serve you. Therefore, I am determined to give you my devoted service, so that you can take full glory over my life. Please give me a heart of servitude to faithfully serve you, until the end of my life. Enable me with grace through your Holy Spirit to faithfully serve you until the end! Help me to serve you with ease, and let my services be acceptable to you always. Please turn me to a beacon of praise to your holy name from now on and forevermore! For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

GOD WATCHES OVER HIS FAITHFUL CHILDREN – Psalm

faithful

God Won’t Let His Faithful Children Be Disappointed

(Passage: Psalm 107)

You can always count on God to be faithful to you! God never fails his promises to his children. Be expecting him to help you if you serve him diligently.

A psalmist had a reflection of the past and praised God for all his goodness on his people. God’s children (Israelites) suffered many things in the hands of their enemies. The journey of life was rough for them, but God showed up, in the end, to bail them out of all troubles.

Even while Israelites were passing through thin and thick journey of life, God was with them all along.

Our faithful God was with his children always. He forgave their sins and delivered them from their troubles.

God fed his helpless children that were wondering for food; he fed them with angels’ food.

Once the psalmist  reflected on the past, he praised God and proclaimed:

They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way; they found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses” (Psalm 107:4-6).

Ever Faithful God Watches Over Us

God, the keeper of his people, never sleeps nor slumbers. He will remain wonderful to us – His people who associate with him.

One prime benefit of God’s faithfulness is that he forgives sin. Whatever wrong was done can be forgiven – no matter how bad it appears.

Yep, God forgives if you can repent and pray to him!

Has God promised you before? No worries, be assured he won’t disappoint you.

Consider yourself fortunate if God has promised you in the past because he will fulfill his promises. You can count on God any time any day!

Your assurance as a child of God

Jehovah will forgive the sins of his children and save them from their troubles. The Creator does not behave like humans that constantly change their minds.

God does not change his mind. He will honor his covenant of peace, protection, and prosperity that he has made for people that faithfully walk before him.

You, as a child of God, do not have any cause to suffer, but God is always with you, and he will give you the reason to always praise his holy name.


Pray For God’s Grace and Care

Dear God, please give me peace. Help me to believe your promises for my life.

Please God, keep me consistent with you so that I can enjoy your divine blessings at all times.

Give me the grace to praise and serve you in the beauty of your holiness, so that I can live in peace and prosperity in this life, and in heaven also. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I have prayed. Amen.

Strive To Conquer Your Adversary

adversary

Venture To Withstand Adversity With Firm Faith In God

(Passage: 1 Samuel)

STOP worrying, you are not alone, God is with you! If you are undergoing hardship and feely lonely, I ask you to reconsider your situation; you are not alone, God is with you. He will help you win your adversity.

The Bible states if God is for us, who can be against us!

The thought of loneliness and feeling of isolation may be the enemy’s plot to demoralize you from exercising your faith in God.

You are not alone, God is with you. He will help you overcome your adversity.

Again, God is beside you to help you fight and win!

One man in the Bible called David recognized the presence of God during his difficult moments. Hardship rolled against him like a surging storm, but the man was not moved. He exercises and absolute trust in God.

Just like any other story, it all started well for David when he summoned courage to fight and conquered a giant who oppressed his people. David fought and won the enemy of his country; everyone sang to his praise, but all those excitement soon sparked a rage of jealousy from the king of the land. King Saul considered David as a threat to his throne and was determined to kill him.

A terrible situation for David!

King Saul, who ought to be happy for David’s achievement and celebrate his courage to defend his land became jealous. He sought an opportunity to kill him by all means.

As David ran for his dare life, he never lost the consciousness of God’s presence.

The gentleman, David, saw the wall around him collapsing as he became a fugitive and slept in the jungles.

(Constantly watching his back, David sought a friend in the camp of his enemy.)

It was obvious that King Saul was jealous of David. Even his own son Jonathan recognized that. Here is an occasion of how the poor David was desperate to get help, even from his enemy’s son:

“Then Jonathan said to David, “Tomorrow is the New Moon; and you will be missed, because your seat will be empty. And when you have stayed three days, go down quickly, and come to the place wherein hid in the day of the deed; and remain by the stone Ezel. Then I will shoot three arrows to the side, as though I shot at a target; and there I will send a lad, saying, ‘Go, find the arrows.’ If I expressly say to the lad, ‘Look, the arrows are on this side of you; get them and come’—then, as the Lord lives, there is safety for you and no harm. But if I say thus to the young man, ‘Look, the arrows are beyond you, ’o your way, for the Lord has sent you away. And as for the matter which you and I have spoken of, indeed the Lord is between you and me forever” (1 Samuel 20: 18-23).

You are not alone, God is with you!

God Will Put Every Adversary To Shame

If you can be resolute in your faith, you will soon see how God will put your enemies to shame!

Children of God mostly face injustice in this world. They suffer abuse from people who are despare to take advantage of their godliness. This can be tough for you as a child of God, but never lose hope since God always defend his children.

Christians’ ultimate defense will come from God. Evil people who may currently have upper hands will soon see the judgment of God.

Since Christians are God’s apple eyes, they are bound to be defended by God.

Believers’ Ultimate Assurance

Nothing should give the believers more joy than the assurance that God will earn us his tremendous blessings in his kingdom. He will reward us for our steadfast efforts in spite the hardship that comes our way.

Meanwhile, not only will believers be blessed in heaven, we are also going to be blessed on earth!

God will ensure that people who stand with him on earth are never put to shame and their adversaries will He disappoints

Sometimes it feels like the world is against you. Do you know why? Because the devil has seen your strength. He has noticed you have the will and power to conquer every trial. Do not be afraid, instead pray for more strength and grace to be stronger.

Pray For Blessing & Deliverance

Dear God, please bless me beyond the limits of enemies’ persecutions and suppression. Let your glorious light shine upon me, and let my face radiate your beauty. Let me prosper on earth, and let me be blessed in heaven. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

Salvation Is Open To Everyone – Romans

decisions

The Lord Accepts Whoever Repents Genuinely And Comes Back To Him

People who have distanced themselves from salvation still enjoys the grace of Jesus Christ and have a chance of getting saved. God will patiently wait for unbelievers to exercise a change of heart so that he can save them. God will not cast off people who have rebelled against him, but he will show them mercy and grant them the grace of salvation. God stated through Prophet Hosea,

“I will call them my people, who were not my people, and her beloved, who was not beloved.” “And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ There they shall be called sons of the living God” (Romans 9:25-26).

The Chances Of Salvation Has A Limit

People must understand that the door of salvation will not be indefinitely open for sinners, but it will be shut at God’s appointed time. Once the last trumpet blasts, unbelievers will be hurled into hell fire while believers are sent to heaven (Revelation 20:8). Therefore, since “faith in Jesus Christ” remains the only formidable access to God’s kingdom, all people must exercise it. Everyone must confess Jesus Christ as Lord and accept him as his or her personal Savior to be saved.

Christ is the truth and the life. God has willingly given us access to him. Without faith and trust in God, we wouldn’t be truly practicing Christianity. Faith makes it worthwhile, so have faith in him always.

Confess Christ As The Truth

Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that there is no other way through which a person can be saved other than you. Therefore, I confess you as my Lord and personal Savior. I believe you are the Son of God who was sent to save sinners. I confess my sins to you, and I repent from them. I will serve you from now on, and forever! Please write my name in your book of life, and count me worthy of your kingdom. I believe I am now saved through faith, since I have confessed you as my Lord. Glory to God. Amen.

GOD’S PLAN WILL ALWAYS COME TO PASS – Genesis

Always Believe God’s Plan For Your Life

A true child of God will trust and believe God’s plan for his or her life. Be aware that you can’t succeed without the help of God!

If indeed you acknowledge the existence of God, you should also exercise your trust in God and believe in his plans for your life.

Children of God must know that God’s plan for us is for good and not for evil.

The God that we serve is too strong and too faithful to fail his promises.

Indeed, God’s plan cannot be compromised, because “Faithful is he that calleth.”

Has God ever failed in the past? Absolutely not. Let’s learn from the scriptures:

God brought Joseph’s dream into realization despite the various challenges that he faced from friends and foes.

Joseph, against all odds, saw the plans of God came to pass on his life.

The man Joseph approached his jealous brothers some years after they had attempted to kill his dream by selling him to slavery:

“… I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life” (Genesis 45:4).

God’s Plan Can Withstand Any Trial

The going may be tough but God will not abandon his children. God’s plan for your life will surely come to pass! (Say amen to that).

Be reminded:

God does not lie. God’s plan will ever stand sure for those who trust him.

As children of God, we must be assured that the Creator will fulfill his plans for us regardless of any circumstance that may arise against us.

An unimaginable situation may rise but God’s faithfulness will remain unchanged. Jehovah knows how to cause his miraculous light to shine at the end of any tunnel. He will prove himself faithful and cause his name to be praised.

Keep the faith, and be hopeful in God. People who know your story will soon praise God on your behalf.

Your story and testimony will encourage others to exercise their faith in God also.

Pray For God’s Plan Over Your Life

Dear God, I am confident that you are a faithful God who is able to turn any situation around for the benefits of your children. Since you are a faithful God, I know that you will turn my situation around to bring me joy. My testimony will honor your name.

Please give me all the reasons to praise your name, and let me testify to your goodness. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

Remember: God’s Plan Will Always Come To Pass
