What to do about all the chaos in the world

triciajots4jesus:

Yes, now more than ever, we need to focus on Jesus and obey Him completely. Hope you are helped by this good post from Tanya for these troubled times.

Look directly to the Lord for all direction, guidance and help in your life.  Keep focused!  Put on blinders to help block out anything that will distract you from focusing on Jesus and His plan for your life.

The Spirit of the Lord led me to share this with you today.

This world is becoming more challenging and more dangerous by the minute. We can’t solve all the world’s problems. The bible tells us these things will happen. The danger is hitting very close to home.  Do NOT fear!! Don’t be stressed and anxious all day and night.

Keep up your personal relationship with Jesus Christ!!!

Study God’s word like crazy!! Do what the word says do!

Stand up for what is scripturally and morally right!!

Live HOLY!!

This is what I heard the Holy Spirit impress upon me….He told me to put on blinders and don’t look back…

Beyond My Power

Pharoah    Genesis 41:16 (New Living Translation) says, “’It is beyond my power to [interpret dreams],’ Joseph [told Pharaoh]. ‘But God can tell you what [the dream] means and set you at ease.’” In The Message, “set you at ease” is “set Pharaoh’s mind at ease.”
It’s often beyond human power to do things. That’s why a doctor may say, “We’ve done all we can.” Those with faith may even add, “It’s up to God now.” Also, when I’ve sought help for problems from human beings, I’ve often been asking more than they can give.
But God is healer, problem-solver, dream-interpreter, provider, peace-giver, source of wisdom, and so much more! He can give us peace of mind. I need to seek Him always, because human power and human wisdom are limited, but He is almighty. And because He is all-wise, He will do what is the very best.
I’m not saying that God doesn’t use people, because He does. He used Joseph to interpret the dreams. But Joseph was careful to give God the glory because the interpretation was from Him. I want to remember to acknowledge and glorify God for every grace and gift I receive also.

Life Now and Later

I just finished reading another excellent sermon by Pastor Tom: ARE THERE “EXTRA” REWARD IN HEAVEN? (https://revth.wordpress.com/2015/06/30/are-there-extra-rewards-in-heaven/) I highly recommend the sermon.
It reminded me of a book I read a few years ago–LIVING AS IF HEAVEN MATTERS by David Shibley. The subtitle of the book is “Preparing Now for Eternity. It helped me start living more purposefully for Jesus. I got the book from the author’s website (http://davidshibley.com/), but it is probably available from Amazon or other book dealers.

A Prayer For Revival…It Starts In You

triciajots4jesus:

Tanya re-posted this recently, and I think it really speaks to our need in these times.

Originally posted on God Speaks I Listen:

Psalms 85:6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?

What is the meaning of the word revival? It is the renewing, restoring and strengthening of something that was once vibrant, back to a place of importance, power, confidence and vitality. It’s a place of once being high in a certain area of life and then falling to a low point of complacency, going through the motions. Being unproductive and lifeless, to a place of restoration to the point you were at and even higher and beyond.

You have to want to be revived and feel that this is necessary to move you to the next level. A spiritual revival is for the children of God. It’s the hearts cry to be rejoicing in the joy and strength of the Lord once again. It’s the desire of one’s yearning heart to meet the Lord in…

Link to Sermon Glorious Adventure

http://www.sermoncloud.com/grace-bible-church/glorious-abundance/ This sermon by our pastor Randy Huddleston was especially meaningful to me. One thing he points out is that God is so generous and kind that He invites everyone to share His eternal kingdom–anyone who desires may come and drink of the living water He offers. But we come and drink on God’s terms, not our own. We “wash our robes” in the blood of the Lamb. Again, it’s God’s way not our own way.

That invitation reminds me of a song I’ve heard Carroll Roberson sing: “Without Him.” Here are the lyrics:

Without Him I could do nothing
Without Him I’d surely fail
Without Him I would be drifting
Like a ship without a sail

Without Him I would be dying
Without Him I’d be enslaved
Without Him life would be worthless
But with Jesus thank God I’m saved

Oh Jesus, oh Jesus
Do you know Him today
Please don’t turn Him away
Oh Jesus, my Jesus
Without Him how lost I would be
Without Him how lost I would be

THE COST OF FOLLOWING JESUS

triciajots4jesus:

Really good sermon by Pastor Tom. I especially appreciated the firefighter illustration of true belief/trust. Hope you’re blessed by it.

self grave

We are not necessarily called to an life of increasing comfort and ease. We are not called specifically to get more and more financially secure. We aren’t even directly called to success, or even excellence. What we are definitely called to is the cross. A faith that says: “Yes I believe, but not so much that I would give up my life for him,” is not a faith that truly grasps who Jesus is.

I’m afraid that I’m going to have to take this section slowly also. Don’t blame me: blame Jesus, for saying such profound things. Let’s start with this:

And He gave the disciples orders to tell no one…
