Meditation: Such Wondrous Love

God's love is perfect. It is complete, and overflows the heart with confidence and security. One cannot add or take away from the love of God. It never ceases, cannot be altered, neither improved upon. It's far-reaching and free to all.

We were created in the image and likeness of God, who is love. Everything he says and does, stems from love. The sin and transgression of Adam and Eve, resulted in grave and perpetual consequences throughout the generations of humanity. But in the fullness of time, Christ, the second Adam from above, who knew no sin, became sin for us, and bore the penalty in human flesh. 

The Apostle Paul prayed to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, "That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." (Ephesians 3:16-21)

Such wondrous love! Enjoy, walk in, be surrounded by and infused with His unfailing love.

An Evening Meditation: God's Favor

"We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, the deeds You did in their days, in days of old: You drove out the nations with Your hand, but them you planted; You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out. For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them." (Psalm 44:1-3)

Thank you Lord God for Your might and Your power on behalf of Your people. Your people are blessed and highly favored because You have deemed it so. Thank You for Your grace and mercy in every area of our lives. Thank You for saving our souls. Amen.

Praise & Worship

The Lord who made the heavens and the earth is great and greatly to be praised! He is the true and living God. He alone is to be feared above all gods. Only He can save us. "Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless His name; proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples." (Psalm 96:1-3)

Declare the Praises of the King!

"Praise the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for His mercy endures forever." (Jeremiah 33:11)

Righteous God is plenteous in mercy. He who promised to return the captives of Judah and Israel and make the city of Jerusalem a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, is the same God today. He still brings health and healing, peace and truth, cleansing and pardon. He is God who restores.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Thanks be to our great God who has preserved us to this day. A new year has begun, and we know not what the future holds, but we know Him who holds the future and each of us in His hands.

We thank Him for the road we traveled in 2018. We thank Him for His faithfulness and His mercies. We thank Him for His strength and for being our fourth man in the fire during our past trials. We thank Him for making us to grow in His grace and the knowledge of Him and filling us with His unspeakable joy and peace.

Thanks be to God for all who are sending His light and love into the world. Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Christmas Devotional: Divine Purpose

God Himself in human flesh—born of a virgin—to save the souls of men. This miracle cannot be fathomed by the human mind, but what it has accomplished is real for all who have had an encounter with the true and living God and His Spirit that raises us from death to life, from darkness to light.

He whom God delivered from a virgin's womb has come to deliver us, so that we being delivered, can walk in the light and be used of Him to take His light to a dark world. He has come to live in us. Praise the Lord, our Emmanuel!

Mary who found favor with God, believed the word spoken by Gabriel the angel, a messenger of God and yielded herself to God's divine purpose. She didn't understand how, but believed in the Lord, saying "Behold the handmaid of the LORD, be it unto me according to thy word." (Luke 1:38)

For the angel had said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end." (Luke 1:30-33)

At the appointed time, it came to pass: Jesus was born.

Mary and Joseph were not told beforehand, that there would be no room at the inn and that their baby (God's Son) would lay in a lowly manger; they didn't know (prior to a dream from God) that King Herod would seek the young child to destroy Him. They didn't foresee that at a very young age, Jesus would stay behind at the temple after the Feast of the Passover, causing them much sorrow and anguish. They didn't know of all the powerful miracles Jesus would wrought, neither did they comprehend all the things Jesus would suffer as He went about doing good.

Yet Mary pondered many things. Oh, what pain she must have felt as she looked upon Jesus in agony on a cross, being mocked, wounded, bruised and about to die for sins he did not commit.

We know that sorrow was turned into joy and mourning into dancing. For Christ arose, ascended on High, has led captivity captive and has given gifts to men.

Like Mary, we must trust in God and His divine purpose for our lives and the world. As a yielded vessel in the hands of God, (as so many before us,) we can persevere in the midst of trials and tribulations, we can fight the good fight of faith, and finish our course with joy.

"Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory. The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations. He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God." (Psalm 98:1-3)

None of the world's most beautiful gifts can compare to the gifts we receive by the Holy Spirit to transform us from our old, sinful nature to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ and empower us to preach His gospel; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:16 & 17)

Christmas Prelude

This could be the "Eve" of a promise in Jesus, fulfilled in your life. There was "a day before" Christ our greatest and best gift was born of Mary who found favor with God. 

Likewise, this could be "the day before" you deliver that which the Holy Spirit has conceived in you and has purposed for you to bring forth for the glory of God.

Psalm 150: Praise the Lord!

{Psalm 150}
Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!
Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. 
Praise the Lord!
