Recognizing Humanity

As appalling current events unravel before our very eyes, an underlying message lies deep between the lines of the newspapers and social media posts. Christians must understand we need to stand up, today, for the Lord and His written Word. Be followers of Jesus, or live in the sinful realm of Satan!

Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.  1 John 3:7

Are all people not created equal? Did God make one race superior over another? No! He made each person unique in His own light, and an “image of Him.” So, why is there a need for racism?

My first thought in recognizing humanity is the word equality. It engulfs the notion that every person, regardless of religion, race, or gender, has the same rights. I believe this to be true, but many in the United States have a tough time putting it into practice. I think the issue is not about equality, but a varying difference of opinions. Let me give you an example…

In today’s times, the Jews often dispute “the image of God.” They feel strongly that God was referring only to Israel’s nation, for they abide more so by the Old Testament than Christians. The problem with this is God didn’t create people to be more valuable than others, nor more deserving of His love than others.

We must come to grips with the fact that humanity will either accept God’s Word or not and live a life worthy of God. It is an individual choice – one which will be personally answered to before the Lord.

I find the greatest country on earth, oddly enough, is spreading the most immature behavior. Americans are like a box of crayons standing collectively inside a little cardboard box. Our colors bring vibrancy to creativity, yet the mean-spirited are determined to break us in half, creating separation through social justice. We each bring gifts and talents to the table, and all skin colors and religions are equal in the worth that God has given them.

My goodness! Isn’t it time to come together? Yes, I’m aware Satan has control over many; but it shouldn’t deter the rest of our communities from acknowledging the self-worth of man.

In the spirit of recognizing humanity, let us attend church regularly instead of rioting. If you want equality, then put God first. Yes, let’s recognize humanity! Instead of rioting and judging others for their race and religion, let us go to church on Sunday morning and ask for forgiveness. Pray for the lost that they may find solace in the Lord.

It is Satan’s unending motive to disenfranchise us from God, so why are we empowering him? The discrimination of racism begins in the heart, so give it to God! I ask you to recognize humanity for what it is – the Lord’s beautiful creations… born with many differences.

God is Working on Our Tomorrows

As crazy as it sounds, many of my blogs begin in my mind with no introduction, title, or even a theme. But I feel God as He moves my spirit in His direction. Some ask how I know when I’ve received a message from the Lord. It’s a moment in time… sipping my first bit of coffee. Relaxing in my sweats, my spirit will begin to race, and just like that, a title and theme arrives in a telepathic message. I know it sounds odd, but…

God is working on my tomorrows

There isn’t a greater gift from the Lord than to help and encourage those who need or stay in prayer. No words can express my deepest humbleness as our Father addresses life’s daily situations. He brings the right people into our life when we keep with the rhythm of His great plans for us. God can work out the events of your life into a great masterpiece.

God is working on our tomorrows

My wife and I met a wonderful woman this week who I can now call our sweet, new friend. As Christian and godly as she is, she may not comprehend how she is helping to do God’s mission on earth. It’s humbling to observe certain people as messengers for our Lord. Yet, they are unaware they are being used for the glory of God’s sole purpose. She is an amazing widow enthralled with helping me and others. I, too, enjoy her walk with the Lord. Living alone with memories of a wonderful world she once shared with her husband Charles, little does she know, she gave me hope. She uses her talent as a core gift to serve the Lord’s people.

My spirit now moves within her, too, as she watches the waves break against the seawall. Ideas swelled through her mind and found their way to her conscious being. Barely awake, she wrote me a note, “I have ideas for you to undertake.” This is how God works on your tomorrows! He uses other Christians who crave sharing the Bread of Life. God knew how much we needed to meet this wonderful lady. Now a communion of kindred spirits, she has become part of His higher plan.

I cannot explain, short of writing another book, how the last few days of my life were an act of God. His timing is impeccable! Who would think, because of prayer, He’d be working on my tomorrows? As you allow God to take control of your life, He places those angelic people in your world to envision the shared dreams. You must come to a place of commitment with the Lord to experience His highest gifts. Trust in Him!

God is working on your tomorrows

To everyone with hopes and dreams – remain in prayer. Faith is the engine that generates toward the will of God. We serve an amazing Father, so seek if you have not, and pray in the sight of fear. Your devotion will become your very best friend, as you, too, will see… God is working on your tomorrows.

Let us pray,

Caring heavenly Father, I come before you on this day because I want to seek Your will for my life. Lord, rather than following my own direction in life. Because I know that in my heart I can stray from Your chosen path.

Father, I want to be successful in what I turn my hand to. For this reason, I want to do everything as unto YOU. So on this day, I come to place the desires of my heart before You. I also want to ask that in Your grace You will forward the plans I have for my life, in a way that is best pleasing to You.

Guide me Lord in the way of Your choosing. Father, as I lay before You the hopes and dreams of my heart, which I would dearly love to fulfill. Instead, I surrender them all to YOU, praying that you will lead me in the path that is best suited to carry out Your best work in me.

I ask this in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen

Can your life change in an instant?

Your life can change in an instant.

One day you can be down, and the next day, you are at the summit. It is possible; and has happened to many people.

You could be the next person.

But how does it happen? Who makes it happen?

I know many people who, reading this, will be asking these questions and more. Who would not want to be rich in one day? Everybody would love to know the secret; and apply it to get skyrocketed to success.

You can be rich in an instant if God decides that it should happen to you. God alone can do it. You cannot do it for yourself. It only happens when God decides it should happen.

The good thing is you can make God take that decision in your favour.

How can you do that? By getting into an excellent relationship with Him.

Of course, you know how to build a great relationship with God. It is through prayer.

Pray without ceasing. That will get you into his heart and once you are there anything you ask, will be given you.

Today’s morning prayer 14

You have said O Lord,
That if we have a need,
We should come to you;
If we are burdened,
We should come to you;
If we are in doubt,
We should come to you;
If we are afraid,
We should come to you;
If we have worries
We should come to you;
That is what I am doing;
I come to you today,
With all my projects,
An worries, and fears
And doubts;
And count on your help.
Amen!
