OUR FAITH IS AS PRECIOUS AS GOLD IN THE SIGHT OF GOD – 1 Peter

persecution

Christians Should Be Ready To Face Trials and Tribulations In Their Quest for Eternal Life

Children of God are encouraged to endure their trials and temptations for the sake of receiving an eternal reward in heaven. Believers must stay close to God with unwavering faith to receive an incorruptible crown of glory on the last day. It is written,

“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:6-7).

Endurance Is A Key to God’s Abundant Grace And Favor

Every child of God ought to endure whatever challenges of faith that he or she may face, as the effort would be rewarded in heaven. God will crown Christians who endure persecutions and trials of faith in the last days. Christ has warned believers to not assume that Christianity would be easy. Christianity would not always come with the  “bread-and-butter” experience. The religion comes with its own challenges; non-believers will attack Christians and persecute them for their faith. Some Christians would be persecuted to death! However, any Christian who endures faith to the end will be rewarded.

It is important that every Christian stand firm in faith and endure persecution to receive God’s priceless eternal reward in heaven.

Pray For Strength To Endure All Manners of Tribulations As A Christian.

Dear God, please keep me in faith, and let me remain consistent with your holiness standard. Help me to endure persecution. Empower me through the Holy Spirit to stand firm against the trials and temptations so that I can make it to your kingdom. Let me qualify to hear your voice “well-done and welcome my good servant.” For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen.

PAUL WARNED CHRISTIANS NOT TO BE LAZY – 2 Thessalonians

diligence

Children of God Must Work Hard to Succeed

Passage: 2 Thessalonians 3

Paul encouraged the Thessalonians Christians not to be lazy people. They must work hard; be productive, and be responsible for their family and the society. Paul said,

“For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies. Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread. But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good” (2 Thessalonians 3:11-13).

lazy

Christians Must Be Industrious For God’s Honor

Christianity is a religion that promotes hard works. Children of God must understand that they have an obligation to work hard and provide for the members of their immediate family. On top of that, they have to be productive for their society!

A Christian must not mistake his religion activity as a substitute for caring for the members of his or her family.

A Christian parent or child has some important roles to play in the family. He or she must assume those roles.

A Christian who appropriately assumes his or her role in the family will honor God and also send a clear message to the unbelievers that we serve a disciplined God who blesses hard works.

Pray for God’s Grace and Strength to be Diligent

Dear God, please give me the grace to be a diligent Christian who takes care of his (or her) family. Make me someone that labors for the purpose of caring for my family members. Please let my good works make you proud and challenge others to be responsible for their homes. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

THE POWER OF GOD IS UNBEATABLE – Nahum

The Power of God will Benefit Christians

(Passage: Nahum 1)

The power of God is extraordinarily great and remains unbeatable. Jehovah is God; he is the only deity that all people must serve. The Creator has an autonomous power to do whatever he likes. The magnitude of God’s power is beyond any human comprehension! God has the power to give life; he also has the power to take it back. God can make rain to fall in the morning, cause the sun to shine in the afternoon, and snow to fall in the evening. In fact, God is so powerful to an extent that nothing is difficult for him to handle! The Creator, in his magnificent power, requires that all people must recognize him, revere him, and serve him. He asked everyone (his creation) to serve him with all their strength and might. Whoever honors the call to faithfully serve God will prosper on earth and in heaven!

The Bible states,

“God is jealous, and the Lord avenges; The Lord avenges and is furious. The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies; The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked. The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet. He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers. Bashan and Carmel wither, and the flower of Lebanon wilts. The mountains quake before Him, The hills melt, and the earth heaves at His presence, Yes, the world and all who dwell in it. Who can stand before His indignation? And who can endure the fierceness of His anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by Him. The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him. But with an overflowing flood He will make an utter end of its place, and darkness will pursue His enemies” (Nahum 1:2-8). 

 

Blessings Shall Follow People That Recognize the Power of God

The Power of God controls the universe; people who recognize and appreciate this fact will prosper. Why? God has the supreme authority to control all things. He has an autonomous power over the earth and heaven. Whatever God says and does are final. No one can question his authority. The Creator has promised to use his magnificent power to favor the people who faithfully serve him. He considers his faithful worshipers as his true children deserving of blessings, and he will bless them.

 

Anyone that recognizes the power of God and honors the Creator will not regret his (or her action). God will use his magnificent power to favor him. Jehovah will go to an extra mile to ensure that his child that makes him proud get blessed.

Follow the course; serve God for Who He Is

People who expect the blessings of God must faithfully serve God. They must prioritize serving him so that the Creator can surprise them with his much benefits.

Serve God to receive his benefits!

Pray for Grace to Recognize The Power of God

Dear God, please give me the enabling grace to honor you and faithfully serve you so that I can prosper. Help me to serve you in the Spirit and in truth (as you required in the Bible – John 4:24). Please bless me as I acknowledge your power and make a sincere effort to satisfy your desires. Let your goodness and mercy follow me in every day of my life. Earn me the privilege to testify to your goodness in the assembly of your people. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen. => Subscribe here.

GOD GUARANTEED ABSOLUTE SECURITY FOR ISRAELITES – Zechariah

security

God will protect people that serve him

(Passage: Zechariah 12)

 

Security is of the Lord! Dwellers of Jerusalem have lived in fear and suffered oppression from their surrounding nations, but God promised them guaranteed safety. The City of Jerusalem would prosper and flourish despite hostility suffered from their enemies.

God said,

“In that day I will make the clans of Judah like a little fire that sets the forest aflame—like a burning match among the sheaves; they will burn up all the neighboring nations right and left, while Jerusalem stands unmoved” (Zechariah 12:6 TLB).

God’s Guaranteed Security Will Be For His Observers

The security of God stands sure for people that serve him. Jehovah will protect his own people, and offer them many benefits. External influences and pressures that children of God may suffer on earth would not be strong enough to stop God from performing his goodness in their lives. Since nothing can stop God, he will advance his goodness in his people’s lives; he will not stop until he has made his children’s faces shine.

God’s children will have upper hands over their enemies; they have unquenchable Spirit of God dwelling in them, therefore they are bound to succeed. Congratulations to people who have made their choices to serve Jehovah and also follow the footsteps of his Son Jesus Christ – They will prosper in this life, and they will also prosper in heaven. People who have not registered a relationship with God should do so by confessing Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Savior.

Prayer To Trust God For His Security

Dear God, I understand that you are the only one who has guaranteed security. You have enough strength to save and bless people. Therefore, I swear my allegiance to follow you. I yield my life to you, and I will faithfully serve you throughout the days of my life. Please anoint my head with your oil of gladness, and make my face shine. Overflow me with your grace, and empower me through your Holy Spirit to live a life acceptable to you always. Please defend my interest in this life, and let me remain qualify for your eternal riches in heaven. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen. => Subscribe here.

JESUS PREACHED AGAINST ANXIETY – Matthew

anxiety

Matthew – Christians Must Not Be Anxious For Anything

(Passage: Matthew 6)

Jesus instructed his followers to not worry about anything, but they should have confidence in God. Believers must be joyous and hopeful at all times. We must have an expectation that promises of God on our lives will come to pass.

Jesus said, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek.

For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:25-34).

Important Lesson on Anxiety

People who serve God must not be anxious about anything, but we must be hopeful in God. Believers must be confident that God is ever strong to help us overcome our challenges and lead us to victory.

Christians must understand that Satan outsource scary situations to challenge our faith. His goal is to make us doubt God and stumble in faith. No Christian should give in for the desire of the enemy.

We must be full of faith and have high expectations. As we demonstrate unwavering faith, God will turn our trials into testimonies, and he will also make Satan be ashamed. Indeed, God will compensate our faith and turn it into testimonies!

Prayer Against Anxiety

Dear God, please help me to demonstrate unwavering faith in you. Help me to stop worrying about life challenges. Help me to realize that you are in charge of my life, and you will perfect whatever concerns me! As I continue to trust you, let my terrible situation turn around to good one, and let me have the story of your goodness to share with other believers and the rest of the world. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

SYRIANS IDOLS FAILED TO EARN THEM VICTORY – 1 Kings

idol

God Will Defend His Children Against Idol Worshipers

(Passage: 1 Kings 20) A Syrian king and his army underestimated God and believed they could loathe his protective power. After local gods (idols) have failed to earn the Syrians their desired victory they concluded that God of Israelites must have been powerful on the hillsides where the battle took place. Therefore, Syrians decided to change strategy to attack Israelites in the plain land. Meanwhile, they also lost the battle to Israelites.

The scripture reported, “Then the servants of the king of Syria said to him, ‘their gods are gods of the hills. Therefore they were stronger than we; but if we fight against them in the plain, surely we will be stronger than they.’” “Then a man of God came and spoke to the king of Israel, and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Because the Syrians have said, “The Lord is God of the hills, but He is not God of the valleys,” therefore I will deliver all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord.’” (1 King 20:23; 1 Kings 20:28).

Lesson on God’s Power

God is not limited in power; anyone who underestimates his power would live to regret it. The same God who will negatively deal with wicked people will favor people that faithfully serve him. Jehovah is the living God! He is an omniscient Creator. He is an invisible, invincible, and indefatigable God that reign over the universe. He conceived and created all things by his power to his satisfaction. Therefore, all people must serve him with due honor. Every living ought to faithfully serve him.

PERSISTENT EXILE JEWS REBUID THEIR HOMELAND DESPITE PRESSURE – Ezra

persistent

Persistence: God Will Honor A Persistent Christian

(Passage: Ezra 5 & 6)

Some exile Jews returned home to rebuild their homeland, but the enemies were furious about their decision, and they were willing to do whatever it takes to stop them. However, Israelites summoned the courage to resist their opponents and kept their project on schedule. (They were persistent). Besides, the determined Jews pushed back against the enemies with an applicable legal backing. The authority honored their petition, and God’s name was glorified.

Bible reported,

“…Therefore, if it pleases the king, we request that a search be made in the royal archives of Babylon to discover whether King Cyrus ever issued a decree to rebuild God’s Temple in Jerusalem. And then let the king send us his decision in this matter… So King Darius issued orders that a search be made in the Babylonian archives, which were stored in the treasury. But it was at the fortress at Ecbatanain the province of Media that a scroll was found. This is what it said: “Memorandum: “In the first year of King Cyrus’s reign, a decree was sent out concerning the Temple of God at Jerusalem. “Let the Temple be rebuilt on the site where Jews used to offer their sacrifices, using the original foundations. Its height will be ninety feet, and its width will be ninety feet. (Ezra 5:17; Ezra 6:1-3).

Since the exile Jews remained persistent in rebuilding God’s temple, God helped them. In spite the odds they faced, Israelites were able to successfully rebuild God’s temple. They decorated it and offered acceptable sacrifices to God.

Lesson On Christian Persistence

People who serve God with persistence will not regret their decisions. God will honor them for their pious efforts. Children of God may have tough time and go through some hash circumstances, but they will ultimately prevail. They will scale through their challenges to praise the name of God. Since much benefits will is available for people who are persistent in their relationship with God, all people should endeavor to associate with him and serve him well.

Ask God for strength to be a persistent Christian who does a great thing to benefit his kingdom!

Prayer To Be Persistent In God

Dear God, please help me to be a persistent Christian. Let me be someone that loves you wholehearted. I understand that you will defend those who honor you, and you will not give room for their enemies to mock them so that your name can be praised on their behaves. Please strengthen me to work well with you to enjoy all your benefits everyday of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

ELISHA DEAD BODY RESURRECTED ANOTHER DEAD BODY – 2 Kings

Resurrection: Christians To Have Faith In God of Wonders

(Passage: 2 Kings 13)resurrection

God used Prophet Elisha greatly during his lifetime to perform many miracles. Elisha raise a dead person to life; he made a metal object float in water; he also averted a long-standing famine overnight. Perhaps none of those miracles should be considered as the greatest when compared to what happened after Elisha died. His dead bone resurrected another dead man to life!

The scripture reported,

“Then Elisha died, and they buried him. And the raiding bands from Moab invaded the land in the spring of the year. So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet” (2 Kings 13:21).

Faith In God Has Resurrection Power

Faith proves God’s resurrection power! The God that Christians serve is full of wonders. He does many unimaginable things for people who trust in him. People who serve God will enjoy his benefits on earth and in heaven.

Any Christian who faithfully serve God will have a basket full of testimony to share with other people! However, the challenge is left to anyone who intends to enjoy God’s benefit to not doubt his power.

People who doubt God may see their benefits eroded! It is important that a believer trust God and patiently wait to receive his help difficult a moment. God will show up in due time to benefit whosoever cast his complete trust in him.

Be hopeful in God. Trust him, and you will experience his resurrection power!

prayer

Pray To Have Resilient Faith In God

Dear God, I know you have the power to do all things. I believe in the power of resurrection! You will honor people that reserve their confidence in you. Therefore, I ask that you please increase my faith in you!

Make me a Christian who has confidence in your word that you will perfect whatever concerns me! Please let my faith turn my trial to testimony so that I praise your name among the saints. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
