Stabilized on The Rock

June 20, 2013

Life can sometimes be very challenging; unexpected events happen in our lives, like job layoffs, a health scare from our doctor, a spouse asking for a divorce and the other spouse didn’t see it coming, a child on their death bed…so many things can happen that could take us over the edge if we are not careful and prayerful. However, for the believer when things becoming overwhelming in our lives we must find our stability in the rock who is Christ Jesus. The psalmist said “From the end of the earth will I cry when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I (Psalm 61:2)”. When life becomes too much go to the place where you can find refuge, that place is in Christ Jesus.

God Bless You

Wait On Your Ministry

June 13, 2013

The Lord has a work or a ministry for all of us who have confessed and received him as Lord and savior; however we must be patient as we wait for that ministry to come to past in our lives. I’m sure Moses was wondering what in the world would God do with his life after he found himself ejected from Egypt and on the backside of Midian. However, the Lord finally called him into the fullness of his calling 40 years later when he found himself in the wilderness of Mount Sinai observing a bush that was on fire but the bush was not consumed. It was the Lord calling him into his destiny; and though it took God 80 years to do it, it did come to past and the life of Moses still affects our lives today as we read about the things God used him to do. You may be wondering when will God call you to do a work for him, be patient and wait for the call “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (Hab. 2:3).” With that said, consider your waiting as a time of preparation.

Consider The Ant-(Pro. 6:6-8)

June 6, 2013

The ant is an insect that gathers their harvest during the time of plenty in order to survive during the time of lack. Thus, they put away or save their food for a rainy day because they know the rain is eventually coming. As Christians we can learn something from the habits of the ant community and that is to learn to save; learn to put something away for a rainy day because the rain typically falls in all of our lives. It’s hard to save anything when you are in season of lack, however, if you have a job for instance, you ought to be putting something away that’s only used during those times of lack, or for those rainy days such as a job loss or the washer and dryer needs to be replaced, or the refrigerator has seen its last days and you know you are going to have to buy a new one. However, buying a new one is not such a strain because you considered the ant and you put something away (cash) for the time of rain.

God Bless You
