Life with Jesus

I am here to boost your faith in Jesus. I am here to praise Him along with you. I am here to walk the walk and talk the talk so you can hear Him and you can step into His path. There is no one greater than Jesus and I could write about Him all the time. All encouragement should be centered around Him. He is marvelous. He is awesome. He is unique. He is loving and He is faithful. I have never met anyone like Jesus and my prayer is that He becomes extremely real to you. The world has a lot to offer but the Lord is much better than all the treasures of the world. I pray that you see the riches that are in Jesus. His name alone is worth all the money in the world. His name alone is more powerful than all the names of the people in the world. Jesus is the Savior and we can be with Him every single day if we choose to follow Him. Follow the Lord. Stand by His side because He is always with you. He never ever abandons you. Life with Him is worth it. Life with Jesus is the best life you can have. It doesn’t mean that your life will be easy but it means that you are immensely blessed. He is the Blessing. He is the best of the best. May Jesus be your Lord. May you accept Him fully and may you be invested in Him fully. 

There are so many things I want in this life but the one thing that matters the most is having a strong relationship with Jesus. I want no gaps between Him and me. The world gets in the way very easily. It is up to me to bridge the gaps and to remove the distractions. The enemy will always try to distract us and to keep us busy so we can’t spend time with Jesus. We can outsmart him. Yes, friend we can. Not in our own power but in the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus gave us His Spirit so we wouldn’t be dealing with the enemy alone. We have power. We have the ability to stay close to Jesus when we walk hand in hand with His Spirit and we relentlessly work on making Him our priority. This means that we have to turn down the world sometimes. When the world wants to serve us a dose of worldly pleasures and entertainment, we ought to choose Jesus. Choosing Him over temptation and distractions is something we can achieve thanks to His Spirit. His Spirit always takes us to Jesus and if we pay attention to His direction, we stay on the right path. There is just one path that is important and it is the path we can walk with the Lord. Life with Jesus is out of this world. We are in this world but we have an out of this world calling and journey. Let’s walk with the Savior. Let’s live through Him. Let’s revive our passion for Him when it is extinguished by the worries of the world.

 

Life with Jesus means that we imitate Him and we are touched by His love. We can’t walk with Jesus and not walk in love. If love is missing in our walk, we need to take a moment and reevaluate our faith. Faith without love doesn’t work well. Love for Jesus and love for our neighbors is a powerful combination. It is a divine power that makes everything possible. Remember that when Jesus was on earth He always walked in love. Love performed miracles. Love saved. Love healed. Love cared. Love provided peace. Love brought joy. Life with Jesus is all these great things and it doesn’t stop showing love. It stays filled with love even around those people we think are hard to love. Life with Jesus is life that defies hate and discrimination. Life with Jesus is a life of freedom that the world can’t know unless it has Jesus in its midst. Join me in praising Jesus today and always. Don’t let your circumstances keep you from lifting Him up. Your life with the Lord is the best life ever. Enjoy it. Enjoy Him! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He always loves you!

What is God building in your life?

Before He started His ministry on earth, Jesus was a carpenter. A carpenter is someone who repairs or makes wooden structures and objects. I love that carpenters make and repair. This concept exemplifies what the Lord does. Jesus is the carpenter of my life. He fixed my life and He made it what it is now. He gave me eternal life. That is what He does. He didn’t just do it for me. He did it for anyone who believes in Him. When He died on the cross, people thought it was the end. It was just the beginning of the structure He was building. He was making something that would last forever and that no one could undo. Jesus built eternal life. He repaired our lives and fixed them with salvation. He redeemed us of our sins and  built a bridge between the Father and us. That bridge of salvation is a structure that we can count on. It is indestructible. Jesus undid death and replaced it with His resurrection. Now, His resurrection power is the permanent structure that lives in us. If you have Jesus, His power lives in you. It is building you up and it is fixing you and making things new. God is at work in your life. If we remain in Him and His words remain in us, He will build something amazing in our lives. What is God building in your life today? He is repairing your life and making a life that is blessed by His presence.

What the Lord is building in you is a powerful structure that relies on His Son. The Lord wants to builds reliance in us. What He is building in our lives requires work on our part and faith. The Lord would never force anything into our lives. We have to agree and we have to believe. We can’t be passive and expect Him to do something good inside of us. That powerful structure of dependence on Jesus can be put together when we take a step of faith and we trust that God is at work in our lives. The process started when we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior and it continues every single day. Our salvation and our lives with Christ are an ongoing journey. We can help the Carpenter repair our lives by having total faith in Him and by letting Him be the part of us that He should be. We could choose to privilege the world and its ways or we can choose Jesus and let Him develop His mind in us. We can share the mind of Christ as we renew our thinking with His Word and we are in contact with His Spirit. Let’s always choose Jesus. Let’s always choose Jesus over the world. Let’s get to know Him better thanks to the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is in us and with us and that relationship can be amazing. The Lord gives us the wood we need and it is up to us to finish the work by leaning on the Spirit and adoring the Lord. Adoration and worship are crucial here. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and in His temple there should be rejoicing and celebration. We are a place of worship that should be active all the time. It is sad when we don’t answer the call and we deprive our temple of praising the Lord. When we do that, we are like a church where the lights are never turned on, Jesus is forgotten and there is no fruit and no progress. God can build a tree of hope inside of us when we keep our hopes in Jesus and we actively engage with Him. The structure of peace and joy the Lord desires for us to have is attainable. It can be made when we spend time in the Word of God, we pray every day, we walk in love, we stay in faith and we exalt the Lord. God is building a wonderful structure of faith, love and hope in you, friend. Give Him permission to place the beam of joy, the joist of love and the structure of faith inside of you. As you rely on God, He will fix what needs to be fixed in your life and He will create a new you. God can build anything and He built you for a time like this so stay in faith and keep on going. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!

10 nuggets of wisdom for your Saturday (Part 189)

Let God speak to your heart privately. Set aside time to listen to Him. Give Him time and savor your moments with Him.

“Trust Me, I know what I’m doing” is what the Lord is telling you today. Listen to His voice. Give Him a chance to show you what He can do. Give yourself a chance to get out of your misery as you lean on God in the middle of your troubles.

God’s love in your life is accounted for. There is an unlimited provision of His love for you. It is a done deal. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Embrace God’s love. Let it bless you and protect you.

Faith is like a net you cast in an ocean of blessings. You don’t always know what you are going to get but you know you will get something and it will be very good in Jesus’ name!

At the end of the day God is still on the throne. No matter what you go through, God will see you through. He is still almighty and He is still powerful. Don’t lose hope. Victory is yet to come!

Praise is your remedy. It will heal your body, soul and spirit. Praise Jesus today and every day and you will have the key to freedom and breakthrough all the time.

Save your praises for Jesus. Compliment and encourage the world but praise the Lord and only the Lord. Put Him on a pedestal. Exalt Him. Let Him be bigger than anyone else. All praise belongs to Him!

Jesus the author of your faith holds your future. This means that you are not looking ahead with fear and doubt. You know that your future is in good hands and you have nothing to worry about. The Lord will be there every step of the way and He will always make a way!

God doesn’t think like the world. He knows and understands how the world thinks but His ways are higher than our ways. Pray that the Lord opens the eyes of your understanding and shows you His ways. Pray that you think more like Jesus and less like yourself!

Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy! You can make it and you will make it beautifully in Jesus’ name. The Lord is with you. He will make things happen for you. He will encourage you and help you. Don’t get discouraged. God is on your side!

Suggested reading: Psalm 91:4; 1 Corinthians 1:9; 2 Timothy 2:13

God is greater

When I overthink and I spend time focusing on the negative, bad things seem so huge. I lose sight of God but fortunately the Holy Spirit brings me back to His reality and He reminds me that greater is the Lord that is in me. Greater is the Lord that is in me than the devil that is in this world.*That is what the Bible says. That is what the Lord Himself declares. Next time your mind blows the devil out of proportion, take control of your mind but reminding yourself that greater is the Lord in you. Take an inventory of everything that is bad in your life and push God’s truth against that list. Say “Greater is the Lord that is in me than the bills that are piling up in front fo me.” You can also say “Greater is the Lord that is in me than the anxiety that is fighting against me.” Anything that is bad and evil is not greater than Jesus. Jesus died on the cross and conquered death. The enemy, the devil is under the umbrella of death. He was defeated. Jesus in you is greater! You have nothing to worry about. The enemy might be blowing fear into your heart but the One who is sitting in your heart is more powerful. Give the Lord a chance to dominate your heart, your feelings and your emotions. You can do that by proclaiming that He is bigger and greater that anything that is against you.

So many strongholds are formed in our minds when we keep rehearsing bad scenarios and when we dwell on our problems. Nothing can get resolved when we visit our problems over and over again. They can appear bigger and they can foster other problems that did not exist in the first place. When we are aware of how powerful the Lord and we get ahold of that truth, we are on the right path. Now the goal is to use that truth and not let it sit in us. It has to be expressed and it has to be sustained. Greater is the Lord that is in us but the enemy is relentless and he knows that if he can weaken our minds and glorify himself in our heads, he has won the battle. He has not won. Jesus won. As bad as things may seem, they can be reversed and they can be changed by our Lord almighty. There is a lot of peace in the Lord and His peace can transform all situations. When things are not going well and my head feels like it’s going to explode, I call on the peace of the Lord. I understand the importance of calming the storm within so I can better deal with the problems that I am facing. Problems have a way of paralyzing our thinking and our bodies but when God’s peace enters the scene, hope is set in motion again. God’s peace is greater than the confusion and the chaos of the enemy. Ask for peace. You will get stronger and your faith in God being greater will increase.

Are we willing to believe God or are we going to buy into the enemy’s lies? His lies like I implied earlier, magnify him and they can be intimidating. God is the One who intimidates the devil. The devil doesn’t want you and me to discover that truth. Remember that Jesus destroyed the plans of the enemy on the cross. It is a done deal and whoever believes it will reap the benefits. There is a harvest of blessings that come from trusting that greater is the Lord in you than the enemy that is in the world. Go for the biggest harvest you can get. Go for healing. Go for debt cancellation. Go for peace. Go for joy. Go for blind faith. Go for the impossible. Greater is the Lord that is in you and the enemy can’t stop you because you are filled with the love that changes the world. Friday night might be here now and you can’t see how you will make it to Sunday but you have the One who bridges the gap between life and death so your Sunday is coming. Rejoice. Jesus is greater than any problems you might face. Stay encouraged and keep standing in faith. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
