Forgive us Lord, when we seek help in the temporal things. May we ALWAYS, find comfort and help in you, no matter what comes our way. NOTHING, can separate us from your LOVE!
Happy New Year, brothers and sisters. Out with the old, in with the new. Can’t wait to see what the Lord will do in each of our lives and look forward to hearing about it, from each of you.
Father, I surrender to you, all things that distract from you today. Help me to see what is good, is right,is pure,is Holy. Let me see your goodness in the midst of a fallen world. May I see through your eyes. Amen
In the book of Joshua, he says Do Not Fear. I go before you in the battle. I will give you the Victory. He has declared victory in Jesus, through his perfect life, his death and resurrection. The victory has been won, over sin and death. We are are victorious through Jesus, both now and for all eternity, to those who believe. Do you believe? Lets shout it from the rooftops. Good news, indeed.
Thank you Jesus, that through you, we find life! Not only now, but for all of eternity. This truly is good news, that though we don’t deserve it, we find Mercy and Grace, through you.
Jesus, Lord over all! He came to earth, declared victory over sin and death. He is now with the Father, and one day soon, will come and establish his eternal kingdom.
When we submit to God & humble ourselves, it is automatically saying we reject Satan. He is a defeated enemy. He may come, but he cannot win the battle. The Victory has already been won!
There are two religious paths you can take. The way of the law and works that lead to destruction, or the way of life, through Jesus by faith in his perfect life of sacrifice and his resurrection, that leads to everlasting life. There is nothing he cannot over, if you surrender your life to him! Is this not good new, if you are suffering? He cares for his sheep, and leads them to green pastures. If you are lost, seek him and he will find you. Jesus is his name and there is no other.
When you give your life to Jesus, you are acknowledging, that you cannot earn you way to heaven, by following a bunch of rules (The Law). Your faith in Jesus, takes away any condemnation from the penalty of the Law.

I have been crucified with Christ. See notes on Ro 6:2–6 . When a person trusts in Christ for salvation, he spiritually participates with the Lord in His crucifixion and His victory over sin and death. no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The believer’s old self is dead ( see note on Eph 4:22 ), having been crucified with Christ ( Ro 6:3 , 5 ). The believer’s new self has the privilege of the indwelling Christ empowering him and living through him ( see notes on Ro 8:9 , 10 ). gave Himself up for me. The manifestation of Christ’s love for the believer through His sacrificial death on the cross ( Jn 10:17 , 18 ; Ro 5:6–8 ; Eph 5:25–30 ).
