“I Live”

heard in my spirit February 10th.  It reminded me of “…Because I live, you will live also.”  Jesus in John 14:19.

Who can argue with Jesus? Ravi Zacharias was given this verse after his failed suicide attempt as a teen. Ravi explains even more on The Eric Metaxes Radio Show.

“And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”                           2 Corinthians 5:15

“For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”

Philippians 1:21

Also an amazing song by Sidewalk Prophets.

I’ll Walk In Your Truth

Teach me Your way, O Lord;
I will walk in Your truth;
Unite my heart to fear Your name.”

Psalm 86:11

“I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

Jesus in John 14:6

King Jesus, let us really follow You & Your words and hear Your voice.  Many people follow certain evangelists and are not doing the ABC’s of Your word. Love our enemies, love our neighbors, forgive…

“But He answered and said, ‘It is written, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” ‘ “  Matt 4:4

 

Conquer the Flesh

“If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” God to Cain in Genesis 4:7

“And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” Paul says in Galatians 5:24

An acquaintance worried that she would be hungry overnight if she fasted.

Romans 8:

vs. 5, “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.”

Vs. 10, “And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.”

Power Pack – Holy Spirit

People talk about spirits, but do we know the Holy One?

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” explains Jesus in John 16:13 (NKJV)

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” Paul preaches in Romans 8:2

“The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,  the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” Isaiah 11:2

“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Romans 8:11

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Jesus says in John 14:26

“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4:30 (NIV)

Follow Your Heart

My son forsook his chemical engineering career so he could stay home with Mom & babies.  He receives excellent pay at his job that enables him to be home by 1 pm.

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall life you up.” James 4:10.

“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” 1 Peter 4:10.

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”  1 Peter 5:6.

“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.”  Proverbs 22:4.

 

First Thing

One morning on route to work I decided to speak life, to actively reach higher, look higher, speak good things.  Later I saw a newspaper heading on a lobby table: ‘Life & Death.’  “Life & Death are in the power of the tongue,” Proverbs 18:21.

  • First thing: Whoever desires to be first shall be slave of all (Mark 10:44)
  • First thing: I AM WHO I AM has sent me (Exodus 3:14)
  • First thing: He is the Savior of the world (John 4:42)
  • First thing Honor your father & mother (Ephesians 6:2)
  • First thing: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul & all your strength. And love your neighbor as yourselves (Luke 10:27).

“There’s so much life here”

the forester said, walking through the Sierra Nevada during winter; snow laced over the branches, a foot deep on the ground.

At first glance, it looks dead, but all the snow & ice melt in spring to water the trees and plants, and bring life.

A friend told me this analogy that while the tree looks dormant in winter, God is preparing and growing it as He does with us.  Hallelujah, Lord, thank You, Lord Father for all Your ways are truth and life.  Thank You for teaching us to know and trust You throughout varying circumstances, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
