The Good Shepherd

When we are lost while driving, it only means one thing and that is, we DO NOT KNOW THE WAY!  Duhhhhh! What do we do?  We stop and ask for directions.  Or we put on Waze to direct us.  We ask for help!

When we see people who are still lost in the wilderness, we judge not.  Instead, we lift them up in prayer that God will pour out His Spirit as what He has promised.  The pouring of His Spirit in people’s hearts are invitations for everyone to respond.

Pray Always!

When the Lord opens our eyes to SEE Him all throughout the day, He is issuing an invitation for us to engage in what He is doing and what He is thinking.   This is abiding in His presence that causes us to be joyful, prayerful and thankful.

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”  (1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 ESV)

A Powerful Testimony!

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.  (Revelation 19:10) Once we hear, acknowledge and believe one, it powerfully influences our own perception of Who our God is, how great He is, how willing and able He is, all because we are deeply loved, awesomely cared for and unlimitlessly thought of by Him.

“How precious to me are your thoughts, God!  How vast is the sum of them!  Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand– when I awake, I am still with You.”  (Psalm 139:17-18)

Be Anchored!

Desire To Know Jesus!

Many of us started our walk with God with set of rules to follow.  You do good and get good.  You do bad and get bad.  It was always a quest to reach out to God in and of our own ability to be accepted, embraced and rewarded.  But God Who is rich in mercy and abounding in love had a different plan.  Jesus came, Immanuel, God with us, so that we may have life in Him and have it more abundantly that can only be achieved by accepting His invitation to know Him personally.
