02-21-18 FaithLine Devotion NO MATTER HOW BAD THINGS ARE…

My dear brothers and sisters, dedicating your lives to singing for Jesus:  “When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him…NO ONE COULD BIND HIM ANYMORE, NOT EVEN WITH A CHAIN. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet.” (Mark 5:2-4)

Some very bad things had happened to this man, he was about to encounter Jesus, who is capable to do whatever needs to be done…

“He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God” For Jesus had said to him, COME OUT OF THIS MAN, you impure spirit! (Mark 5:7-8)

Jesus commanded these demons to come out, so, what could they do but come out

“…THE IMPURE SPIRITS CAME OUT and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned…they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, DRESSED AND IN HIS RIGHT MIND…”(Mark 5:13, 15)

Jesus told us, “Go and do likewise.”

YOU SEE, JESUS IS CALLED THE PRINCE OF PEACE

FaithLine, the bible says: “…and nothing will be impossible for you.”

02-20-18 Loved One’s Devotion THE CURE FOR AN UNFRUITFUL LIFE…

 

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day:  When I forget who I am in Christ, I quit pursuing what belongs to me in Christ.

“For this very reasonMAKE EVERY EFFORT to add to your faith virtue, knowledge, self-control, persistence, godliness, and love.” (2 Pet. 1:5-7)

The Word of God gives us this remedy to cure us from an unproductive life in Christ…

“For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you FROM BEING INEFFECTIVE AND UNPRODUCTIVE in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Pet. 1:8)

Remember the Word of God is alive and very powerful

“Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, YOU WILL NEVER STUMBLE, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Pet. 1:10-11)

What a wonderfully awesome promise from the Word of God…

IF WE DO THESE THINGS WE WILL NEVER STUMBLE

Notice: [We must understand that the bible says:] “…For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you FROM BEING INEFFECTIVE AND UNPRODUCTIVE.” !!!That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh

02-19-18 Loved One’s Devotion KNOW THAT WE BELONG TO HIM!

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day “Know that the LORD, HE IS GOD! It is HE WHO MADE US, and WE ARE HIS; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” (Psa. 100:3)

We belong to our Abba Father, he formed us and breathed His breath into us to make us living souls, His living souls, His children. We are so very special to Him that even in our disobedience, He gave His one and only begotten son to die so we could be redeemed. Oh, how we need to make great efforts to make our lives pleasing to the Lord for He has given His all for us!

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and ALL THAT IS WITHIN ME, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, WHO HEALS ALL YOUR DISEASES, who redeems your life from the pit, WHO CROWNS YOU WITH STEADFAST LOVE AND MERCY, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.” (Psa. 103:1-5)

You are such an awesome God, Abba Father, help us today to have refreshed and renewed love and devotion for you!

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, SO GREAT IS HIS STEADFAST LOVE TOWARD THOSE WHO FEAR HIM; as far as the east is from the west, SO FAR DOES HE REMOVE OUR TRANSGRESSIONS FROM US. (Psa. 103:11-14)

God formed us from the dust of the earth and made us to become as He is!

OUR ABBA FATHER CREATED US, HE LOVES US AND WE BELONG TO HIM!!!

02-18-18 Loved One’s Devotion THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FEAR OF GOD…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE THEIR EYES. In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much TO DETECT OR HATE THEIR SIN.” (Psa. 36:1-2)

David sends us a message from the Lord about the utmost importance of the fear of the Lord…

“The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful; they fail to act wisely or do good. Even on their beds they plot evil; THEY COMMIT THEMSELVES TO A SINFUL COURSE AND DO NOT REJECT WHAT IS WRONG.” (Psalms 36:3-4)

We come to a very low place in our lives when we reject wrong and commit to do evil! So, what do we do? How do we get help?

“Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep…HOW PRICELESS IS YOUR UNFAILING LOVE, O God! PEOPLE TAKE REFUGE IN THE SHADOW OF YOUR WINGSFor with you is the FOUNTAIN OF LIFE; in your light we see light.” (Psa. 36:5-7, 9)

REPENT AND LET GOD’S FOUNTAIN OF LIFE LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE
