He is Risen!

Luke 24: 5 "Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! When Jesus rose from the dead, just as He said He would, that day made Christianity different from every other "religion." Only the God of Christianity rose from the dead and is alive forever. No other King, or religious leader, can make that claim. Jesus was seen by more than 500 people after He rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God the Father and He makes intercession for you and I, who believe, daily. 1st Corinthians 15:4-6 "And that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the Scri

We, the Redeemed

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever. Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others He has redeemed you from your enemies. Psalm 107:1-2 NLT God continuously rescued Israel from their numerous bondages. He freed them from Egyptian slavery and led them to the land of Canaan.

Galatians 5:22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness… Patience is listed as one of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. I, myself, am not a patent person. I do not like to wait on long lines and I will drive out of my way to go to a store where I know there will not be long lines. We have all experienced long lines, delays (just go to any airport) but when these times are upon us, we should first ask God, “What are you trying to teach me here?” Look at Joseph in the Bible. He was 17 years old when his brothers sold him into slavery. He was 39 years old when he met his brothers for the first time since they sold him. That is 22 years of not

God is in the Large and small of Everything

Is anyone crying for help? God is listening, ready to rescue you. Psalm 34:17 MSG Daily, God surprises me and answers my prayers. Even in the smallest of requests such as “Lord where did I put …” And He helps me find things as well as undertake for requests I make regarding people, family members, and the list goes on.

But by Him answering me in my daily small struggles He is showing me that everything is heard and He will help me through whatever valley I will go through. Do you ever wonder
