Heaven is your Home

Abraham lived by Faith.

By the direction of God, Abram set out from his idolatrous homeland (Genesis 12:1-4) to an unknown destination. He was obedient and travelled by faith. He embraced the promises of God by faith.

From Ur to Canaan

Leaving the place of sin and unbelief, Abram, now Abraham, gave up his past to embrace the future. Isaac and Jacob lived with Abraham in tents, as aliens and strangers. They lived in a land promised them, yet they never possessed it as their own, apart from where Sarah was buried. They were heirs to an earthly Promise never possessed in their life time. They all died with their eyes fixed on that Heavenly city which every Believer in Christ should look to.

Heaven is Your Home.

If you belong to Jesus, this world is not your home. Lift up your eyes to higher ground, there is a better place to come. Trust in the Living God, endure with perseverance and be steadfast. Christ within you is the hope of glory. Grace and Peace to you.

ABSOLUTE

week41His promises are absolute

“Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires;
God will satisfy them fully!” – Matthew 5:6

You can only live by grace if you believe in Jesus Christ. You can pray for the grace to do what He requires. You can pray with confidence when you know you are praying according to His will, plan and purpose.

To be led by HIS SPIRIT:

He desires to give you what He has promised. He is a good Father, He does not tell lies. He will lead you to pray “according to His will,” by His Spirit. Hold steadfast to the promises of God.

– Luke 11:13

He desires to give you what He has promised. He is a good Father, He does not tell lies. He will lead you to pray “according to His will,” by His Spirit. Hold steadfast to the promises of God.

If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” – Luke 11:13

Faith is like a Shield – Part 1

Ephesians-6-16
Faith is compared to a shield because it protects the whole body. The helmet protects the head, the breast plate protects the chest, but the shield is big enough to defend the whole body. It covers from top to toe. David points to the nature of the shield when he says:

“Lord, surely you bless the righteous; you surround them with favour as with a shield.” Psalm 5:12

A shield can be used in a variety of ways. Policemen use their shields collectively as a wall of protection when they are being stormed by a mob. Their shields are so big and wide, it covers them from head to toe, shielding them, while they advance against the storm. This is the same way the believer in Christ moves forward, with the shield of Faith. No matter what the enemy uses against the believer, they are kept safe and protected by the shield of Faith.

Faith defies reason.
When the enemy brings debate and confusion about the legitimacy of God’s Word, Faith steps in and takes control. The Word of God is received by Faith and the shield of Faith is used to quench the fiery darts aimed at weakening a person’s faith.

Faith brought Abraham through every trial, when his natural understanding could not comprehend what the Lord was saying. The shield of Faith brought him through the test.

The shield of faith will shield the believer against the greatest storm. Faith withstands confusion. Faith busts through disillusionment. Faith just keeps on going.

I pray this year you will keep moving forward. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean to your own understanding!

David said,
“I would have fainted, unless I had believed.” Psalm 27:13
Believe in God! Trust in His Word!

Confidence in the promises of God

weekly post 23

Anyone who believes in Jesus must be confident that He answers prayers. Trust in His Word. God will not turn back on His promises. He will not revoke them. Sometimes believers feel that the answer to prayer is dependent on themselves. The answer to prayer is dependent upon the One who has the power to answers prayers.

Believe and do not doubt.

The believer must believe and not doubt the ability of God. He is more than able. Remember the child of God approaches the Father, not in their own name, but in the name of His precious Son “Christ Jesus our Lord.”(Ephesians 3:11). Paul talks about having access to God in boldness and confidence (Ephesians 3:12). Our faith in Jesus Christ gives us this privilege. Every believer in Jesus Christ is privileged. He or she comes boldly before the throne of Grace. There is no comparison to it. Faith is the state of believing. God answers prayers.

No wavering
The believer must not dispute what God has promised to do. God answers prayers. Doubtful thoughts can creep in when a promise is delayed. In Acts 10:19-20 while Peter stood reflecting, trying to understand the vision he had seen, the Spirit of the Lord encouraged Peter not to doubt. The Spirit of the Lord removed Peter’s fears. “Arise, go with them, doubting nothing…” Matthew 21:21 uses the symbol of a mighty mountain. The child of God can even speak to a mountain and “it will be removed and cast into the sea.”

Doubting Thomas
Everyone knows what it means when a person is referred to as a “Doubting Thomas.” Just for the sake of any reader who may have never come across this term (It refers to the disciple Thomas in John 20:24-29. People refer to him as doubting Thomas because he insisted on Physical proof of Jesus Christ’s resurrection.

The believer is human, just like Doubting Thomas, but James 1:6 encourages us not to doubt and be like a wave tossed back and forth. The wave of the sea does not rest, it goes back and forth and back and forth again and again. A doubter is just like this sea. Compare this to the person who lies down beside still waters in Psalm 23:2. This person rests in God.

Let every one who believes in Jesus Christ settle their hearts and stand in faith upon the promises of God. Be careful and be anxious for nothing (Philippians 4:6-8). God answers prayers. He performs dumb-founding miracles, even today, Amen.
