But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18

Be Gloriously Transformed

Good things happen to you when you look to Jesus and behold His glory. The woman who had a bleeding condition for 12 years received her healing when she looked to Jesus. Peter did the supernatural and walked on water as He looked to Jesus. Even blind Bartimaeus received his sight when he “looked” to Jesus by crying out to Him.

What does it mean to “behold Jesus” today?

I asked the Lord a similar question once and His answer to me was, “Emmaus road.” Immediately, I knew He was referring to the experience two of His disciples had when He spoke to them about things concerning Himself in the Scriptures while walking with them on the road to Emmaus. Their hearts burned within them as He opened the Scriptures to them, showing them how the Scriptures were talking about Him (Luke 24:27, 32). The experience so energized the initially depressed disciples that they were able to walk seven miles with Him to Emmaus and later seven miles back to Jerusalem!

My friend, the way you behold Jesus’ glory today is to see Him in the Scriptures. He is there in the stories, in the prophecies, in the parables, in the laws, in the rituals and even in the temple design. When you find Him, the Scriptures come alive. When you see Him, you see His glory. And as you behold His beauty, you are transformed from glory to glory!

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Matthew 11:28–30

Restfully Productive

When you read about Jesus in the Gospels, you’ll find that He was very active. He preached, taught, healed the sick, raised the dead, cast out demons and dealt wisely with the cunning Pharisees. Yet, in doing all these things, Jesus was always very restful. He was never worried, stressed out or desperate.

When He and His disciples were in a boat on their way to the country of the Gadarenes, a fierce storm arose. The disciples panicked, believing that the boat was going to sink them all into a watery grave. But what was Jesus doing? He was fast asleep! The gusty winds, violent lashing of the waves and rocking of the boat didn’t wake Him up—only the cry of His disciples did. What did He do next? He rebuked the storm and brought perfect peace!

When they arrived at their destination, a fierce, severely demon-possessed man came out from the tombs and met Jesus. His disciples, who were with Him in the boat, were suddenly nowhere near Him. But Jesus, cool as usual, stood His ground and with one word—“Go”—sent the demons fleeing (Matthew 8:32). He brought peace to the man, restored to him a sound mind and gave him wholeness.

My friend, this Jesus who is restful yet so effective lives in you. Look to Him and be yoked to Him. Ask Him to lead and guide you each day. Flow with Him and you will find an inner rest and peace that enables you to be effective and fruitful wherever you are!

[ The Birth of Jesus ] In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.


Luke 2:1, 4-5

The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to man.
Psalm 115:16, NIV

Rest And Enjoy What Jesus Has Provided

God made everything on this earth for the pleasure and fulfilment of man. Just as an expectant couple would get ready the room, the cot and the clothes for the arrival of their baby, God prepared everything man needed first, including the garden of Eden, so that when man was created, man would be able to just enjoy everything that God had created.

In the same way today, Jesus has already done everything for you when He died on the cross for you. The work is finished. What do you need today? Healing? A financial breakthrough? A better job? Every blessing that you will ever need in this life has already been provided for by the sacrifice of Jesus (2 Peter 1:2–3). And to experience these blessings in your life, all you have to do is believe and rest in what Jesus has done for you. So stop trying to make things happen with your self-efforts. You cannot add to the finished work of Jesus.

Beloved, just believe and rest in all that Christ has already done for you. Tell the Lord today, “Lord, I cease from all striving, struggling, pushing and manipulating to get my breakthrough. I rest in what You have already done for me and I thank You that You will bring it to pass in my life!”

Daily Prayer for December 21, 2016
Bless my family, Lord. I cannot be with them every minute of the day, but my thoughts never stray from them. Watch over them while they commute from place to place, especially when roads are slick with ice, snow or rain. I pray that they remain happy and well in Your guiding light. Amen.

Scripture Readings: Luke 1:39-45

Christmas Stamps

A woman goes to the post office to buy stamps for her Christmas cards.

Clerk: What denomination do you want?

Woman: Oh, good heavens! Have we come to this? Well, give me 50 Catholic and 50 Baptist ones.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14

Why Jesus Became One Of Us

Have you ever wondered why, when God came down to us, He had to take on the form of human flesh? My friend, it’s so that He could become our kinsman Redeemer.

You see, in ancient Israel, if you had lost your land or something through poverty or bad debts, it’s possible to have someone buy it back or redeem it for you. However, that person had to meet three conditions. Firstly, he had to be a relative of yours. Secondly, he had to be wealthy enough to buy back the land. Thirdly, and most importantly, he had to be willing to do it.

My friend, Jesus came down to us in human flesh so that He could fulfill the first condition, that is, become our relative or one of us. Now, do you think that as King of the universe, He had the means to buy back all that we’ve lost? Yes, of course, but most importantly, He was willing to it—and He demonstrated this with outstretched arms at the cross!

Beloved, have you lost your health? Have you lost your peace of mind? Have you lost your direction in life? Jesus, your willing kinsman Redeemer, can redeem it all for you. Look to Him and not man. Let Him restore to you all that you’ve lost and even bless you with more than you had before!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

God So Loves You

A bell is not a bell until you ring it. A song is not a song until you sing it. Love is not love until you give it. And God gave us His only beloved Son, Jesus Christ, some 2,000 years ago, all because He loves you with every fiber of His being.

Every time you think of or celebrate Christmas, remember this: Christmas is a sure sign from heaven that God loves you. God so loved YOU (you can put your name there) that He gave you Jesus. So you are loved, my friend. Every pain you feel in your heart, every disappointment that you go through, every tear that falls, God knows all that you are going through because He cares deeply about you.

Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life, and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Because the Lord so loves you, He came and died to give you life more abundantly. He wants you joyful and enjoying good success. Meditate on His immeasurable love for you this Christmas season and begin to step into a greater measure of His abundant life!

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:10–11

Born To Save You

Meditate on the first words of heaven to man at the beginning of the New Testament: Don’t be afraid.

What encouraging, hope-giving and empowering words of grace! And what were these precious words a prelude to? The proclamation that Jesus would come to be our Savior.

My friend, whatever you are facing today, hear heaven’s encouragement to you—“Do not be afraid.” Do not be fearful. Do not be discouraged. Why? Because Jesus is your Savior.

He came to be your Savior. He didn’t come to be your judge to condemn and punish you. He didn’t come as a lawgiver to give you more laws to fulfill. No, He came to be your SAVIOR. That’s what Jesus is and wants to be to you.

So what does a savior do? If you’re drowning, will a savior condemn you for having fallen into the water and laugh at you for not knowing how to swim? Will a savior throw you an instruction book on how to swim? Of course not! He will jump right in to save you, no questions asked!

Beloved, when it comes to saving you from whatever puts fear in your heart, Jesus is the best there is in the entire universe. He didn’t come just to save you from hell just so you can enter heaven when you pass from this earth. No, He wants to save you every day from anything and everything that you need saving from! See His mighty hand reaching out to you, powered by a heart that has no condemnation, but only love for you!

Psalm 103
Of David.

1
Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6
The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.

7
He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
8
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
9
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
11
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14
for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
15
The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
16
the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.
17
But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18
with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.

19
The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.

20
Praise the Lord, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.
21
Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.
22
Praise the Lord, all his works
everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul.

On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”
Mark 4:35
You Will Go Over And Not Under!

Jesus was in a boat with His disciples and they were caught in a great windstorm. Water was coming into the boat and the disciples, fearing that they would drown, cried out to Jesus, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38 ).

The Lord arose immediately from His sleep and rebuked the storm—“Peace, be still!”—and there was a great calm. Then, He turned to His disciples and said, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”
(Mark 4:39–40).

Now, why do you think Jesus questioned His disciples about their absence of faith? I believe that it was because they didn’t believe what Jesus had said to them earlier: “Let us cross over to the other side.”

My friend, Jesus, through His finished work, has given you victory in all things. Even if you are facing giant waves of adversity today, His Word promises you that you will get over to the other side victoriously. And when Jesus tells you that you are going over to the other side with Him, you are going over! You will not go under! Whatever situation you are in now, put your trust in Jesus, who is always with you, and arrive safely on “the other side”—to your breakthrough!

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27

Guard Your Heart And God Will Guard The Rest

In the modern, fast-paced world that we live in, there are always things to do: Drive the kids to school, make important phone calls, answer work emails, attend meetings, cook dinner, do the laundry, pay the bills…the list goes on.

It seems like we have so many responsibilities that it’s really difficult to not let our hearts be troubled by any one of them. But do you know what the Lord says about all this? He says that our only responsibility is to guard our hearts, and He’ll take care of the rest.

Meditate on this for a while: Our only responsibility is to guard our hearts and God will guard everything else. We guard our hearts on the inside, and whatever is on the outside, God will guard. So don’t worry about what’s happening on the outside. If your peace and restfulness depend on how things on the outside fair for you, the devil will have a field day with you because what’s on the outside is usually beyond your control.

Learn to guard your heart from being troubled and let God take care of the rest. Note that Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled…” So you are to let not your heart be troubled. No one else can do it for you. Meditate on His promises and love for you until they take root in your heart. It may take practice, but keep at it and you will find an inner peace and strength to face each day’s challenges and come out on top!

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully” (Romans 12:6-9, NIV).

25 Questions for Mary

A teacher friend of mine asked her students to make a list of questions they would like to ask Mary. Their responses included: What was Jesus’ first word? Did he ever get sick? Did Jesus ever misbehave? All legitimate questions. The fact that we can ask these questions raises an even greater one. Why did God go so far? Why did He become a human being?

A chief reason is God wants you to know that he gets you. The Bible says in the Book of Hebrews that he understands how you feel and has faced what you face (4:15-16). Jesus has been through weakness and testing; he’s experienced it all--all but the sin! So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help! Because of Bethlehem, you can boldly go to him!

From Because of Bethlehem

“The good we do is never lost; it never dies. In other people, in other places, in other times- the good we do lives on forever.” Matthew Kelly


Daily Prayer for January 2, 2017
Heavenly Father, as the new year begins I look forward to the experiences that lie before me. Be by my side as I wake each morning, and watch over my family and friends. Help me to keep You always in my heart as I make daily decisions, go about my day and interact with those around me. Thank You for blessing me with each new day. Amen.

Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Luke 12:6–7

IF IT MATTERS TO YOU, IT MATTERS TO GOD

Many Christians make the mistake of thinking that God is too busy taking care of the “big things” to be interested in the little problems they are facing. Are you one of them? It may be your child’s bed-wetting habit, a quarrel with a friend or the small pimple on your face. No matter how trivial it sounds, if it troubles you, then God wants to take care of it!

God wants to take care of every area of your life, even the smallest detail. He loves you so much that He knows the number of hairs you have on your head. And if your loving heavenly Father knows and is interested in the small details of your life, then you don’t have to overcome any problem on your own.

When my daughter Jessica turned three, my wife Wendy and I decided to bring her to Disneyland. Knowing that it was her first encounter with Disneyland and that she could be frightened by unexpected shocks, I decided to watch one of the theater productions which I had planned to bring her to, before I took her to watch it.

As I sat through the production, my mind was on Jessica all the time. I was thinking, “Is this too frightening for her? Will she like the mechanical singing bear? Is the place too dark for her?” I decided to bring her to the show only after I had seen it myself and was sure that she would enjoy it.

My friend, your heavenly Father cares for you in the same way as He lays out His plans for you. You are on His heart all the time as He carefully considers and makes plans for every aspect of your life, both big and small. And the very thought of you puts a smile on His face because He knows that the plans He has for you are plans to bless you. (Jeremiah 29:11)

So no matter what problems you are facing right now, you can rest in His love for you. There is no problem that is too insignificant for Him to handle. He is not just God Almighty, He is also your heavenly Father who loves you!

Her [wisdom] ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
Proverbs 3:17

Take The Road Called ‘Peace’

In all the decisions that you need to make today, stay on the path of peace. The Book of Wisdom tells us that the paths of wisdom are always paths of peace. So if you’re faced with a difficult decision, or when there are many choices opened to you, take the path called “peace.”

Do the first thing that makes you peaceful. If it means not buying that big house and going for a smaller, more affordable one, do it. If it means letting go of an abusive relationship, do it. It may seem like you are losing out, but trust me, when you follow wisdom’s paths of peace, they will ultimately lead you to wholeness and life.

My friend, God, who has infinite wisdom, leads you by His peace. He knows what’s best for you and wants what’s best for you! The Book of Proverbs says, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:6). So in all your undertakings, acknowledge the Lord. Invite Him to be involved in them. Commit every matter to Him and ask for His wisdom. Ask Him also to teach you to walk in the ways of peace. He will surely direct your paths and lead you to good success!

Peace is a beautiful gift from the Lord! My heart choice this year is to walk in His peace and resist the pathway that leads to stress.

Daily Prayer for January 4, 2017
It is so hard to watch loved ones suffer, Lord. Whether it be a common cold or a life-threatening disease, their pain sometimes leaves me with doubts about Your love for us. Help me to remember that everything You do is for a reason, and to trust in You always. Amen.

Scripture Readings: John 1:35-42

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
1 Peter 5:7, NLT

Let Go And See God’s Supply Flow

There is a story of a young man who struggled to make ends meet. One day, he got six pieces of white cardboard paper and wrote down these six letters: “L-E-T G-O-D.” This was to remind him to stop worrying and striving to provide for himself and his family, and to let God take over. He placed the cards upright on his dressing table so that he would be reminded each day to let God provide for him.

Well, days passed and nothing changed. He was still in lack and became even more worried, anxious and frustrated. One day, out of desperation, he prayed, “God, please, I really want to know how to ‘let You.’ I want You to take over and supply all my needs, but I don’t know how to! God, please answer me.” The window in his room was open. A wind blew in—whoosh!—and one of the cards fell off the table. It was the last card with the letter “D.” The man looked up and saw the remaining cards spell the words, “LET GO.”

My friend, the way you LET GOD provide for you is to LET GO! Let go and stop worrying about the problem. Cast it into the hands of Almighty God who cares for you and leave it there, and you will begin to see His grace and provision flow freely in your life!

A sound heart is life to the body...
Proverbs 14:30

Relax!

What is a “sound heart” that is life to the body?

In today’s verse, the word “sound” is the Hebrew word marpe, which is from the Hebrew word, rapha, meaning “heal.” Going just a bit deeper, you’ll find that the root word of rapha is the Hebrew word for “relax.”

Put it all together and what you’ll see is that a relaxed heart gives healing or health to our bodies. That’s why The Living Bible translates the verse as, “A relaxed attitude lengthens a man’s life.”

My friend, God wants you to have a heart that is at peace, and a relaxed attitude about the issues of life, so that you can walk in health. It’s no wonder Jesus said, “...do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on...” (Matthew 6:25). In that sermon, you will hear the constant refrain, “Do not worry”—because you have a loving heavenly Father who provides for you.

Today, choose to stop worrying about your health, finances, family, career or whatever is troubling you. Do what needs to be done but entrust the matter to God and trust Him to guide you (Proverbs 3:6). Cast every care upon Him, knowing that He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). Beloved, make a decision today not to let your heart be agitated or disturbed, and step into a greater measure of health and wholeness for yourself!

...Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side...
John 20:19–20

How True Peace Comes

After Jesus’ arrest and crucifixion, His disciples hid in the Upper Room, confused and terrified of what their Jewish brethren might do to them. Knowing exactly why they were there, and understanding their fears, the risen Lord appeared in their midst, and immediately said, “Peace, be with you.” Then, He did something significant—He “showed them His hands and His side.”

My friend, His pierced hands and side speak of His finished work. Jesus was telling His disciples that He had paid the price for their sins, that they needn’t be afraid of what was happening anymore, and that they could come boldly to God in their time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

Perhaps there are fears swirling in your mind today. Maybe it’s the thought of losing your job, or maybe it’s an alarming symptom in your body. Beloved, focusing on your problems won’t help you. Center your thoughts, instead, on the person of Jesus and all that He has accomplished for you at Calvary. When you keep your eyes on Jesus, His grace and His finished work, His peace will guard your heart and mind, and lead you to experience the victory He has already purchased for you.

If we wish to follow Christ closely, we cannot choose an easy, quiet life. It will be a demanding life, but full of joy. –Pope Francis

And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
Mark 5:34

Go Into And Remain In Peace

I had always thought that when Jesus told the woman who had been healed of a 12-year bleeding condition to “Go in peace,” He was just giving her a farewell greeting. One day, the Lord told me to check it up in the Greek. That’s when I found out that it actually reads, “Go into peace.”

I had also wondered why Jesus told her to “be healed of your affliction” when she was already healed the moment she touched Him. Again, when I looked up that phrase in the Greek, I realized that Jesus was actually telling her to be made whole, not just healed. In other words, Jesus ushered her into peace so that she could be made whole in every way—if she had been traumatized by previous medical procedures, she would have peace of mind and sound sleep.

My friend, Jesus not only wants to heal you, but He also wants to make you whole. Perhaps many things are troubling you today. Beloved, go into peace and remain in peace. How? By casting all your cares to the Lord. Keep your mind on Jesus’ faithfulness and goodness, and His perfect love for you. The Prince of Peace Himself will keep you in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3), bringing about healing and wholeness in your body and circumstances.

For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.
Hebrews 10:14, NASB

God Sees What You Can Become By His Grace

When God was with Moses on Mount Sinai, the Israelites became impatient and asked Aaron, whom Moses had left in-charge, to make them other gods to worship. And without so much as a word of protest, Aaron crafted a calf from the gold that the people had given him, so that they could worship it. While this abomination was happening, God was telling Moses that Aaron would be His very first high priest: “Call for your brother, Aaron, and his sons...Set them apart from the rest of the people of Israel so they may minister to me and be my priests” (Exodus 28:1).

Didn’t God know what was happening down below? Of course He knew, but He did not see Aaron as he was then. He saw what Aaron would become by His grace—His undeserved, unmerited favor. God saw Aaron representing the people before Him as high priest of the nation, and entering the Holy Place on the Day of Atonement.

My friend, as with Aaron, God knows all about your challenges and weaknesses. If a mistake you’ve made keeps coming back to haunt you, or if you have a weakness that keeps cropping up, don’t focus on it and get frustrated. Look through God’s eyes and see as He sees you by His grace.

To your heavenly Father, you are righteous in Christ, perfected and sanctified for all time by His finished work (2 Corinthians 5:21). Once you realize that this is how your Father sees you, you’ll begin to manifest it in your actions. Then, like Aaron, you will be able to rise above what you are now, and be the champion that God already sees you as through His grace!

This spoke to me about my own fears and anxieties.


And the
Lord said to him, “Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.”
Judges 6:16

You Mighty Man Or Woman Of Valor!

Gideon lived with a lot of fear. In fact, he so feared his enemies that he threshed wheat in a winepress at night to hide himself and the wheat from them! Before he fought and prevailed against the Midianites, he first fought to insist that he was the weakest and least able of all the men in Israel (Judges 6:15)!

That’s how Gideon honestly saw himself. But how did the Lord see him? Just the opposite! He saw Gideon as a “mighty man of valor,” and even picked him to save Israel from the hands of the Medianites, which he did.

My friend, do you see yourself as a coward, a loser? Have people said that of you? Today, I want to challenge you to see yourself the way the Lord sees you—a mighty man or woman of valor! Take time to meditate on Gideon’s story. See the Lord with you as He was with Gideon. Then, trusting in the Lord, apply for that dream job. Go for that audition or course you've always wanted to take. Conquer every fear for He is with you!

My son, give attention to my words...Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.
Proverbs 4:20–22

Get God’s Medicine In You

One of my heroes from the 1800s is a man of faith called George Muller. With faith in God, he built five large orphanages and housed some 2,000 orphans annually. He never asked a soul for money, but brought every need before the Lord. He literally prayed in millions of dollars throughout his life to keep those orphanages going.

Muller did the Lord’s work tirelessly each day. At age 70, he even began a 17-year period of missionary travels and preached in almost 40 countries. He travelled more than 200,000 miles, an incredible achievement during pre-aviation times. At age 93, after being visited by two much younger friends, he later commented with gratefulness to God that he was much more energetic than them, with no aches or pains.

My friend, do you want to know what one of Muller’s secret to a long and healthy life was? It was his love of immersing himself in the Scriptures, and his life was a testimony of the constant recuperative power the Word exercised over or upon his whole being!

If your health has been poor lately, get into the Word. Ask the Lord to give you a renewed love for His Word. Saturate your heart and mind with His life-giving words each day. You can start by reading the healing miracles of Jesus. See His love and compassion for the sick, and His willingness to heal them. Write down a couple of healing scriptures and meditate on them, speaking them over your body and keeping them in the midst of your heart. Beloved, you will find that God’s Word is indeed life and health to your entire being!

For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.
Mark 5:28–29

BELIEVING IS RECEIVING

You have heard people of the world say, “I will believe it only when I see it.” Generally, that is the way the world thinks. But God’s ways are not like the ways of the world. The world says, “If I can’t feel it or see it, I cannot believe the miracle is here.” God says, “If you believe it before you feel it or see it, you will see your miracle.”

Believing first before seeing the evidence of what we are believing for is called faith. Faith is like a spark and Jesus is the dynamite powder.

In the story of the healing of the woman with the issue of blood, there were many people who touched Jesus (Mark 5:31), but nothing happened to them. They didn’t touch Him in faith. But when the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years came to Him and touched Him in faith, He felt power leave His body (Mark 5:30), and it sparked off an explosion of healing in the woman’s body!

Hearing about how good, kind and loving Jesus was fired her faith to believe that He could and would heal her. So convinced was she (even when the condition in her body was still evident) that she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” Did she experience her healing first before she believed? No, she believed first in Jesus’ goodness and power, acted in faith and only then felt the healing in her body.

In the same way, God wants you to believe in His goodness and love toward you. He wants you to know how willing He is to act on your behalf to bless you, and how, with Christ, He will freely give you every good thing. (Romans 8:32)

He wants you to declare by faith that all is and shall be well with you, and to expect to see just that. And then, no matter how long you have had the problem, no matter how bad the experts say it is, an explosion of healing and restoration will take place, and you will receive what you are believing for!

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Joshua 1:8

Victory In Every Challenge

Moses, the great leader of the Israelites, has just died, and Joshua is put in charge. His assignment? Lead some three million people, who tend to complain and doubt God, into the promised land. That would also mean conquering many cities and defeating warriors more than 10 feet tall!

God knows that Joshua needs His help. So He gives him the secret to winning all the battles and seeing good success in all that he does: Meditate day and night on His Word. Joshua runs with God’s instruction and finds himself winning every battle and succeeding in every task!

What’s your “battle” today? Do you have to manage difficult people in your department or classroom? Are you facing the giants of fear and lack? God has given you the key to victory. Run with it and win every battle! Meditate day and night on His Word and see good success in all your endeavors!

Chuckle time...

The Accident

My six-year-old grandson called his mother from his friend Charlie's house and confessed he had broken a lamp when he threw a football in their living room.

"But, Mom," he said, brightening, "you don't have to worry about buying another one. Charlie's mother said it was irreplaceable."

God will not let you go. The big news of the Bible is not that you love God but that God loves you! He tattooed your name on the palm of his hand. His thoughts of you outnumber the sand on the shore. You never leave his mind, escape his sight, or flee his thoughts.

You need not win his love. You already have it. He sees the worst of you and loves you still. Your sins of tomorrow and failings of the future will not surprise him; he sees them now. Every day and deed of your life has passed before his eyes and been calculated in his decision. He knows you better than you know you and has reached his verdict: he loves you still! No discovery will disillusion him. No rebellion will dissuade him. He loves you with an everlasting love. God’s love--never failing. Never ending.
