Nov 5, 2017: 2 Kings $:1-4. Shut The Door. God has all power
in His hands and has invested in us the power of prayer. We should pray without
ceasing, not just when there is trouble. When you pray, shut the door. Go into
your secret closet where you will not be disturbed. Shut the door and let God
know what you need. Shut the door and call on God. Talk to God one on one.
Oct 29: Heb 12:1-2. Get Rid of the Trash. When you accept
Jesus as Savior you begin running a race. When you run for Jesus it is a race
for eternal life; when you run for devil, the reward is hell. Trash weighs you down and keeps you from
running the race. Get rid of the trash of doing wrong, disobeying parents, not
paying attention in school, thoughts and improper words, lies. You have people
that are already in heaven cheering you on, telling you to get rid of the trash
so you can go to the place God has prepared for you.
Oct 22: John 6:9-11. From Our Hands to Jesus’
Hands. God’s hands are strong. Put your problems in Jesus’ hands. Give Jesus
something to work with – your faith. Obey what Jesus instructs you to do. You
do not have to fear not having enough if you pay your tithes. Put it in Jesus
hands and you will end with more than you began. Give your problems, tithes, headaches, additions,
worries, sicknesses and inability to Jesus. Take it out of your hands; you
cannot do it yourself. Take it from your hands and put all your burdens in
Oct 15: 2 Kings 2:1-2. Minister E. Frazier. Turn Your Face to The Wall and Pray. No matter what
comes your way, no matter what situation you face, turn your face to the wall
and pray. God hears and answers prayer.
Oct 8: Romans 8:16-18. Hold onto Jesus No Matter What. We suffer for many reasons. Tribulation is one
of the best tests of Christian maturity. Suffering reveals our faith, develops
our faith, works together for our good (Rom 8:28), and is allowed by God. God
has a purpose in allowing suffering; He wants to perfect us. He wants to purify
us. Jesus suffered for us, but He held
on so that we could have eternal life. If we hold on, no matter what, we shall
come forth as pure gold. Our present sufferings
cannot compare to the glory we shall have in heaven.
Oct 1: Rev O. Watts. Press On Until the Change Comes. To
survive a world in turmoil, press on until the change comes. A nation filled
with jealousy and hate will fall from within. To change requires a personal relationship
with Jesus. Pray, meditate and praise God to keep sane in an un-sane world.
Focus on heavenly things and leave worldly things in the past. Guard your
thoughts, Philippians 4:8.The prize of this race is eternal life. Press
on until the change comes.
Sep 24, 2017: Lev 6:12-13. Fire represents God, it
represents the Holy Spirit. Keep the fire of praise burning. Bring the fire
with you. As with David, be glad to go into the house of the Lord. Praise Him every
day; every day is a day of thanksgiving. If people see the fire of God in you,
it will draw them to God. Keep the fire burning through praise, prayer, meditating
on the Word of God, and watching what you say. Give thanks to God for all He
has done for you.
Sep 17, 2017: Gratitude. Ps 116:12. What shall we give to
God for all His many benefits? We can never pay God back. Even as we try, He is
continually giving to us. Every time we say thank you; there comes another
blessing. Salvation is free but we have to take it. When we make a vow to God,
we need to keep our word. The main things we can give to God are thanksgiving
and praise. He deserves our praise; praise and thank Him every day.
Sep 10, 2017: Rev. Brandon McElhaney. Joshua 1:1-7. It’s Your Turn Now.
God is very specific in His assignment and blessings. God will always prepare
you for what is coming your way. Get over what you have been through. Be ready.
It’s your turn now. We are all called to something. Arise and go forth. God has
already given it to you, but He is waiting for you to get in place. With our
turn comes responsibility.
Sep 3, 2017: Wise vs Foolish. Matthew 25:1-2. The fear of
the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. The foolish believe there is no God. Seek
wisdom, James 1:5. Jesus is coming back- keep watching, be ready, be willing
and wait until He comes. Get all the Holy Spirit you can. Allow God’s Spirit to
lead you. You cannot rely on the oil/Spirit of others. Be wise and God will
take care of you. Choose to be wise.
Aug 27, 2017: Double Coverage. Ps 23(6). The double
coverage in health insurance and sports do not compare to the double coverage
of goodness and mercy. Goodness and mercy will take care of us through all our
troubles and trials. Goodness and mercy will protect us and stand by us. When
we pray for others, that gives us triple coverage. Jesus gave his life to
Aug 20, 2017: A War Is Going On. Gen 3:15, Rev 12:7-10.
Whatever God loves/hates, Satan hates/loves. Satan has power but God has all
power. A war is going on and Satan is the captain. Satan will try to destroy your job, family,
church, community, life. God sent His only Son to free us from Satan. Be filled
with the Holy Spirit and stay in prayer because we are in a war. Put on the
whole armor of God. In the end, Satan is defeated and we win!
Aug 13, 2017: Acts 6: 54-67. Will You Run or Will You Stick?
Jesus preached a gospel that will save and help you live in this world. We need to be able to take it when trouble
comes. Even the disciples ran when Jesus was crucified. But John stuck and God
allowed him to write the book of Revelations. No matter what happens, stick
Aug 6, 2017: Ex 3:1-3. When a Man (or Woman) Finds
God. When you find God He will talk to
you, lead you, and give you something to do. When you find God you become a new
creature, old things pass away, all things become new. Lay aside every weight and sin that so easily
besets you. Jesus died on the cross and
rose again so that all can find Him.
July 30, 2017: Dr. C. Garrison. Jer 29:11; 2 Cor
5:9. Back to the Future That Pleases God. Remember your actions that had
negative consequences and avoid those actions to change your future. God wants
to give you a future filled with hope. Make this your motto: I will seek to
please God. Before you do something ask: Will it please God.
July 23, 2017: Rev. O. Watts. Dead, Yet Alive. Col 3:1-3. Those
dead to Christ focus on what they have. We focus our attention on who not what.
Don’t be a walking dead. Live
differently after you come to Christ. Let the old man die and put on the new
man. We are now dead in the world but alive in Christ.
July 16, 2017: Under New Management. Acts 9:10-16. With salvation comes a new manager, Jesus. New
management will improve your marriage, job, health. When Jesus is your manager
he will straighten things out – if you let Him manage. When you try to manage
things yourself, you will mess it up. Saul put his life under new management and
became one of the greatest missionaries the world has ever known. Trust in and
lean on your new manager, Jesus.
July 9, 2017: Minister E. Frazier. A Woman of Value, Ps
139:1,2,13,14. (Woman's Day Program) Women have many roles but what makes you
valuable is how you connect with the Lord. We are fearfully and wonderfully
made; you do not have to wait for others to make you feel valuable. Stay
connected, (re)surrender to Him.
July 2, 2017: Do You Want to Get Well?; John 5.
You must want to get well and want to do what is necessary. Jesus is asking
right now, do you want to get well?
