Where do you place your confidence today? What gives you strength? Hope? Encouragement? Some people find confidence in a relationship. When the relationship is doing well, they are doing well. But if there is a problem in that relationship, they are shaken. Some people find confidence in their job; but if things aren't going well in the workplace, it rattles them to the core.
I believe God wants to teach us to find our confidence in Him. He wants to be our source of strength. But many people have a difficult time trusting God because they think He's mad at them or disappointed. Always remember—God's not mad at you; He's madly in love with you! God is looking at you with good eyes, with sweet eyes, with loving eyes. He's not looking at what you're doing wrong; He's looking at what you're doing right. Not only does God have love, God is love, and His arms are stretched out toward you today.
Take a moment right now and meditate on that truth. Let it sink d…
“I am…the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Ever been too busy to get something done, and then find out that it’s too late when you finally get down to it? As human beings, we live our lives constrained by time. But Jesus, the one who created time, is not time-bound. He always has time for eachone of us!
Even in His earthly ministry, in His limited form as Man, He always had time to minister to people.
Consider atypical day in His ministry: When a severely demon-possessed man cried out from the tombs of a distant region, He had time to sail all the way from Galilee to the country of the Gadarenes to save that lonely, tormented man. Onthe way there, He had time to respond to the cries of His disciples when a fierce storm arose. He awoke from a much-deserved sleep and calmed the storm for them.
After He saved the demonized man and returned to Galilee, another man, Jairus, came to him for help. Jairus’12-year-ol…
[Introral] Love me for who I am and Love me for who I am not Love me for what I do and Love me b'cos of my future Love me when I am not me and Love me as you love yourself Love me cos am made in the express image of God
Love me more when I am in pain (sick, broken, in a negative situation of love).
Pull someone out of his/her crisis or/and go through with them, then after tell them how stupid they have been in a comforting manner. That is Love. Not rather rebuking them in their worse times all in the name of Love. 1 Samuel 1:8, Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, "why weepest thou and why eatest thou not and why is thy heart grieved, am not I better to thee than ten sons?"
Love me more when I don't live to your expectation.
1 Samuel 18:20, And Michal Saul's daughter loved David: and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him. Would you love him or her if she/his danced till "her/his" garment falls off? Wou…
Jesus gave you everything...
He gave HIS LIFE for you so you can live forever
He gave up HIS Royalty for you so you become Kings and Princes
He gave up on HIS riches just so you can be richer than rich
He gave up HIS flesh to be broken just so you will never see sickness and weakness ever again
He gave up HIS Majesty and Honor to be kill naked just so you have no shame, no guilt, no condemnation
But have Honor Radiance Righteousness and Holiness
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.[John 15:13]
Jesus did it for you because He ranks you as friend.
Love as He has recommended [in John 15:12-13]
God bless you. For the promotion of the Gospel of Jesus Christ [GreaterLOVE]
