Breadcrumbs

“Even the little dogs get the crumbs that fall from the table.

“Then Jesus answered her, ‘O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour.”  Matt 15:27-28.

We get one clue at a time to follow God’s plan.  Sometimes it feels like Hansel & Gretel following breadcrumbs in the forest.  But Father God, we trust You though we don’t have the whole plan.  You Who began a good work in us is faithful to complete it!

 

 

 

Put The Kabosh On Your Diagnosis

We heard a sermon recently teaching to only speak the word of God.  Therefore, I agree with what God says about me and who He says I am, in Jesus’ name.

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV).

“He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.”  Genesis 5:2 (NKJV).

  • “He brought them out with silver and gold, and there was not one feeble among them.” Psalm 105:37.

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;” 1 Corinthians 6:19.

“Now tell them this: ‘As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very things I heard you say. ”  Numbers 14:28.

Dry Your Eyes On Me

the Lord impressed this on me when I was going through a tough time.  When all else fails; “I’ve got you. Just sit a while with Me and listen and be refreshed and I’ll heal you.  It’s all okay, you don’t have to be ashamed to cry or of any weakness.  I’ve got a plan for your life and this isn’t the end.”  Jesus seemed to say.

“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;

Save me, and I shall be saved,

For You are my praise”  Jeremiah 17:14 (NKJV).

“Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee, and went up on the mountain and sat down there.

“Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them.”  Matthew 15:29-30.

“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed.  And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick.” Matt 8:16.

 

 

 

Teach

Titus 2:11-15 (NIV), “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good.

“These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.”

Hebrews 3:12-13 (NKJV), “Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is call “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”

Proverbs 17:15 (NKJV), “He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.”

“If he hears you, you have gained your brother.” says Jesus in Matt 18:15.

Don’t Get Sidetracked

Jesus is coming soon.

Don’t get dissuaded because of the news or personal circumstances.  Stay on course.

“And behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:12 (KJV).

“Seek justice, love mercy, walk humbly with our God” Micah 6:8.

Father, You have those who’ve submitted to You & gone before us.  They’re with You in Paradise.  Bless and comfort us who’ve lost loved ones. Empower us to walk in faith to serve You and others, in Jesus name.

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!

“But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.” Jesus says in John 16:7 (NIV).

“But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” 1 John 2:20 (KJV). 

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” states Paul in Romans 1:17 (NKJV).

Lord Jesus, we honor You and worship You, we praise You and thank You, let us read Your word daily, believe it and obey it, sun up to sun down in Your Holy Name, Amen!

You’re glorified, magnified, we give You all the honor, power and glory, forever and ever!  We love You and need You.

Go Deep

Jesus never stops giving.  He lovingly yells to Peter in the Jesus play, “Go deeper!

Go deeper than face value.

“Come, follow Me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” Matthew 4:19 (NIV). 

“After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Luke 10:1-2 (NKJV).

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.” warns Jesus in John 21:18 (KJV).

“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom.  For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” says Jesus in Luke 6:38 (NKJV).

The Old Card

The ATM activation for the new debit card wasn’t working at first. Then I realized the new debit card was still in my purse.  But I held onto the old one that the bank had cancelled due to a security breach.

Are we holding onto old things that don’t work?  Or are we a new creation in Christ Jesus?

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

“And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.” Jesus teaches in Mark 2:22 (NIV).
