New Focus

Monday, January 23rd, 2017
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
God desires the best for us.  He has planned the best for us. Many times we stop short of His plan for our lives. 

How many times have we given up on our dreams? We’ve stopped believing. We’ve stopped speaking what The Word says, and put our heart on what the world says, and therefore we have achieved what we set our eyes on.
Many times we are snared by the words of our mouth. The Bible teaches us that we will have what we say. That goes both ways, if we feed on the negative and we speak the negative,  then we can expect the negative. If we feed on the Word, and speak The Word of God, then we put ourselves in line to receive the things of God.

Focus on Jesus, focus on His Word.

We are completing our 21-day fast/journey in a few hours. And I’m thankful that God is calling us up higher.

Scripture tells us:
If we draw close to Him, He will draw close to us.

One Word

The struggle is real.
The race must be run.
There is victory ahead for us.

Our eyes must be fixed on Him.
Keeping heaven in our view.
If we’ll continue in His Word,
We’ll know just what to do.

He leads us and He guides us,
Gently through it all.
He’ll never leave us, nor forsake us,
He’ll catch us when & if we fall.

So call on Him to help you.
He’s waiting just for you.
His arms are stretched out….
He’s gently calling you,
He bids you “COME”.

One word can change your life.
One word can change the direction.
One Word can make your life BRAND NEW!

Heart to Heart

OUR PURPOSE

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Jeremiah 29:11
KJV    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

CEV     I will bless you with a future filled with hope—a future of success, not of suffering.

NLV    For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for well-being and not for trouble, to give you a future and a hope.

GOD has a plan, just for you.  As we learn more and more of it, we must first agree with it and then we will grow in it.

In the natural realm, we all start out as babies. But we grow. Our parents begin to expect more of us.  So does God.
So we start by learning His Word.  Learning to listen, and learning to pray!

This week, we start by learning:

  • I COUNT ‘to’ GOD”
  •  “I’M ON A WINNING TEAM”
  • WHAT’S MY JOB, MY RESPONSIBILITY?
  1. In my home
  2. On my job

Let the Love and the Light of Jesus shine in all you do. Represent HIM!

Ask Yourself… Who? What?

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Who is it? What is it? Ask yourself who is it who is persuading me ‘not to be’ a fully sold out christian..who is encouraging me to do ‘less’ for the Lord? Who is it that is cutting my relationship with God, with fellowship with other believers?

Guard your heart and your ears. Protect yourself, protect your family.

Determine:
You must not allow the enemy to pull you away from your church, your family, or your friends. The enemy uses people to distract you, to hurt you. We must learn to let it go…learn to forgive and release others. Then allow the Love of God to permeate your entire being.
