DO YOU HAVE PEACE IN YOUR HEART TODAY?

“And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.” Luke 24:36

This is a dramatic scene!

Those closest to Christ were discouraged. Jesus had been in the tomb since Friday and their future seemed uncertain.

Suddenly everything changed as Jesus appeared and spoke.

The first words out of His mouth are important.

He didn’t joke and say, “Hey, look at Me?” or “Surprise, here I am!”

No, He said “Peace be unto you.”

The Christian should have a large portion of peace in her/his heart.

You and I should carry an aroma of peace.

When we draw close to God, He responds with the Holy Spirit and we are fed from on high. We partake of divinity and are united with God.

The result is dramatic as we become changed and our spiritual peace glows within us.

I praise God for His peace.

What say you about God today?

Spiritual Exercise is an important part of my daily regimen, and it should be a part of yours too. If you spend an hour a day doing physical exercise to keep in shape, then why not spend an hour a day doing spiritual exercise? If you spend an hour a day in leisure activities like watching TV, then why not spend an hour a day with God?

If Jesus spent all night in prayer than why do we think we need so little?

Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.

You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.

Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.

So, join me and spend time with God. You’ll love it!

JESUS CONTINUES TO SUFFER WHEN YOUR OR I ARE HURTING

“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:” Isaiah 53:3

Jesus feels our pain.

When we are temporarily homeless, living in our car. Jesus cares.

When we are without a job, Jesus feels our stress.

When our money is running out, Jesus knows how it feels.

When we make bad decisions, Jesus is there to comfort us.

When we feel discouraged, Jesus sends us the Holy Spirit.

My friends, He is our greatest supporter, and He knows what suffering is.

Let Him help you today.

If you’re doing fine, then be a representative of Jesus today and help someone else who is in need.

I praise God for so many fellow believers who want to help Jesus.

WITHOUT THIS LIGHT WE WOULD REMAIN IN DARKNESS!

“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves” Colossians 1:12-13

Yes, we have been rescued by God the Father. We have been brought out of darkness and into the light.

Jesus has revealed darkness that consumes and has described the truth of salvation. To love God is our only duty. Everything else we do should be fruit of that relationship, things done out of love for Him.

This week I write from the State of Maine, from the wilderness, from the mountains and streams as I hike and bike in nature.

In the wilderness one can commune with God without distraction. I look out over the ocean as the sun rises and think of the power of God and the complexity of His creation.

I praise God for prayer today. I praise Him for listening and for the peace that fills my heart as I spend personal time with Him.

Are You Or A Friend Depressed?

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, And the man who gains understanding;” Proverbs 3:13

Reading the Bible WILL increase happiness! Isn’t that good news?

While so many people are depressed, and don’t experience real joy, they fail to realize that dusting off the Bible and spending time with God will help solve their problem.

Prayer isn’t the only way because it must be accompanied by study and meditation.

Spiritual healing takes TIME with God.

I praise God for this knowledge. I praise Him for an avenue to peace and joy. Real JOY!
