The Bible says, God gives good gifts and one of the best He offers is the fruit of the womb. God has been so merciful and He handed that child over to us for proper care, nurture, training and leading in the way of the Lord. When we commit our children to God, He promises: “And all your children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of your children.” (Isaiah 54:13). But you need to “Train up the child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). I pray that the children in your care will walk in the light and live to fulfill glorious destinies God has planned for them.
Ten lepers met Jesus. They called out, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” “Go, show yourselves to the priests,” Jesus responds. All ten were healed but, One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him. — Luke 17:15-16 “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?” Jesus asked. “Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” I wonder how thankful the other nine were. Jesus welcomed and praised this man as someone who truly knew how to praise God, even though the man was a Samaritan. We have received so much from the Lord, is our heart overflowing with thanksgiving and gratitude, or are we taking His blessings, His healing, His provision for granted? Let gratitude take root in our heart and life as we praise Jesus for all He has done for us!
‘Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.’” (John 17:17)Truth is not relative It doesn’t change with time or culture. It follows then that none of us can define what sin is. Your opinion and mine are irrelevant, because only God defines what sin is. We don’t want to be legalistic, but if something is wrong, it’s wrong! The bottom line is that to be a Christian, you can’t go with the flow. You have to go by the Word of God. The Bible says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20) Let us forsake sin and follow the path of Jesus. If we repent, ( turn away from sin) He’s faithfulness to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness
Jesus is your Good Shepherd, and you are not just a number to Him. In fact, He knows everything about you. He knows when you were born and how you were raised. He knows who’s hurt you. He knows every scar; He knows every pain; He knows every rejection you experienced as you were growing up. He knows where you’re strong mentally and spiritually, and He knows where you’re weak He knows when you’re in trouble and when your emotions and your nerves are raw. And He cares about you. If you need a word from the Lord in this time of your life, you need to come close to Him and listen. Perhaps He has something special to tell you. Read His word and spend time in His presence. He said “My sheep hear My voice.” John 10:27
No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Isaiah 54:17 In times of crisis, like the one we’re going through, the enemy brings the most terrifying thoughts. He likes to use his weapons to strike fear in the heart of Christians. But God tells us that nothing satan has in his arsenal can stand against His children.So, what do we do? Remember, even when the whole world changes around you God’s kindness will not depart. Even though everything crumbles around you, God will remain. Nothing the enemy can come up with will prosper against you. Stand firm on His Word and trust Him through the whole process. Put on the Armour of God and pray. Anything the enemy brings against us will not prevail. Stand and don’t retreat. Hold fast to the promises laid out in God’s Word.
We sometimes think that certain people deserve judgment and mustn’t “get away” with the wrongs they have committed, let’s stop and ponder, “Is that how God has treated me?” If He reacted to our sins against Him as we often react to the sins of those who offend us, where would we be today? The truth is, we have all been mercifully forgiven countless times in ways that no one but God knows… Rather than remembering the wrongs committed against us, we would be far better off remembering this promise of Jesus: “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy” (Matthew 5:7).
