Restoring Your Past

Jeremiah 30:17 (NIV)
But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares The Lord….

There are a lot of old sayings about time… “Time waits for no one.” ” You only live once.”” There’s no time like the present.” And much more. There’s a reason these sayings are quoted over and over again. Everyday we’re reminded that our lives are moving along and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. Too often, this leads to discouragement and pain, whether we’re haunted by the mistakes in our past or ashamed by our sense of insignificance and lack of wisdom. From time to time we have all felt this way! But the good news is that God is not limited by time. He doesn’t work on our timetable. He can move a mountain out of our path n a single moment that we couldn’t change in a million years. And that’s not all! Your loving, heavenly Father promises not just to move you beyond the past… He promises to restore it. When He puts His hand on your life, everything changes. He’ll restore your body, your finances, your relationships, and your calling. There’s no limit to what He’ll do for His children.

3 Reason God Made Heaven

3 Reason God Made Heaven

The bible is full of teaching on heaven and promises eternal life to all who believe on The Lord Jesus Christ. The Word of God says that every tear will be wiped away, that mansion is prepared for each one of us, and that we will see our Saviors face to face.

1.) God is a rewarded.
Right now, we serve God by faith, trusting His Word that all He said is true. Heaven is His reward for our commitment to Him on this earth.

2.) God wants a relationship.
God originally created Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden and they were sinless, having perfect communion and relationship with Him. God’s perfect plan for man all along has been to restore that perfect state of fellowship He once enjoyed with man.

3.) God wants you to reign with Him.
The Bible teaches that we will reign with Christ. That means that there are responsibilities and oversight that we will have in heaven. Our minds can’t possibly fathom what we will do, but it will be amazing!

Having A Grateful Heart Part 2

Being good at gratitude mean you are able to remember all the nice things you have been given, and you maintain a thankful attitude. It means you appreciate the people in ur life too and thank them for all they do for you. And you know what? That makes everyone happy especially God. Why not think about become really good at one of the things God loves, like gratitude. Get a little notepad, and before you go to bed ever night, wrote down ten things that make you feel grateful. After a week or so, look over your list, and you’ll begin to remember all the blessings in ur life in a new way. It can make your life more fun, and you just might inspire some people along the way by being really good at some things that matter most to God!

Hope this teaching spoke to you!

Having A Grateful Heart Part 1

One of my big things this year is to be really good at the things God thinks are important. Have you ever stopped to think about what God thinks of as important? It is not always the same kinds of things we think of as important. God likes things like love,patience,peace,mane joy. I want to be good at those things because I know that they are important to God. But another one I really want to work on is gratitude because in Colossians 3:15 the. Bible says we should be grateful. Gratitude is being aware of the things you receive and giving thanks for them. Ad while it is easy to enjoy the things you receive, it is sometimes harder to stay thankful for them.

Your Heart Is Christ’s Home! Part 2

God is as closer as your next breath. And I believe Christ has come to live inside us because there’s no way we can hope to live the life He wants us to live if His presence is not in us all the time, strengthening us and giving us the wisdom to do what He’s asking us to do. When you understand that as a believer, God the Father, Jesus His son, and the precious Holy Spirit are always with you, you will never be the same! Colossians 1:27 says the riches of the glory of the Gospel message…

… is Christ within and among you, the Hope of glory. The next time you need joy, the next time you need peace, the next time you need strength, realize that the Source of all those things- God Himself- has made His home in you. You have everything you need. And when we give God total control of every part of our lives, we have access to everything He offers us in Christ.

We can trust that God will do whats right for us at the right time. When we keep Him first and delight ourselves in Him (Psalm 37:4), He will give us the desires of our heart.

Hope you enjoyed this 2 part teaching

Your Heart Is Christ’s Home

When God came to live in you, He didn’t just come to stay in one room. He came to live in the whole house.

YOUR HEART IS CHRIST’S HOME
If you have been a believer for a period of time, you may have heard those words before. We all need to have a revelation about we are God’s home. Jesus is not just a visitor. He doesn’t just show up on Sunday. He actually living and abiding in your heart. The question is, are we giving Him full control of every part of are lives and making our home a comfortable place for Him to be?

John 3:24 says…

All who keep His commandments… abide in Him, and he in them.

As Joyce Meyer says…
This is so important to me because I spent too many years as a “religious Christian.” I was doing all the right things I knew to do – going to church, reading my Bible, saying the things I thought a good Christian would say- but I was still powerless, frustrated, and unhappy.

This is what I fell what the trap people now a days have fallen into.

Come see next time for Part 2

Who are you?

Who are you? God’s Word says you are…

  • A child of God (John 1:12)
  • A branch of the true vine, carrying Christ within you (John 15:1-5)
  • A friend of Jesus (John 15:15)
  • A fellow heir with Christ (Romans 8:17)
  • Chosen, holy and blameless before God (Ephesians 1:4)
  • A new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Even if my father and mother abandon me, the lord will hold me close (Psalm 27:12 NLT)

Question:

For someone who has experienced pain and rejection in their life, what hope is contained in the verse above? In your praticular situation, what are some ways God might “Hold you close” ? How can you cooperate with Him to experience emotional healing in your life?

Something to keep you thinking about…
