Do you know who your help is?



So many times in life we look to all the wrong places for help! Books, TV, people, and the list goes on. The bible is clear for the follower of Jesus where our help is:

Psalm 121:1-3

I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?

2 My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.

When things are good or bad look up!!!! That is where the help comes from! So thankful that God cares about us aren't you? In verse 2 the psalmist reminds us where our help comes from....the LORD! No one else can do what the Lord can do, so why try anywhere else??? For God is all as we see He made us and everything else. 

Not only is He our help, He also is our protector as He will not let be moved from Him. Once we are His we are His forever! Praise the Lord!!! Another important thing to remember is God never is absent for His children. He never sleeps and is everywhere all the time.

When we add all this up why in the world would we go to anyone else for help????

You don't belong to you!



If you are a follower of Jesus you don't belong to you! Did you know that? Look here:

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

You as a follower of Jesus have given yourself to Him and your life now is all about glorifying Jesus! Wow! Think on that for a while and then ask yourself, is your life lived out in that fashion? 

Verse 19 tells us that our bodies are the temple of God...the Holy Spirit. What kind of home are you providing for God? Are you taking good care of God's home? Remember you are not yours! If followers of Jesus can grasp this point it will totally redefine their lives. God owns me!

Verse 20 tells us we were bought a price. What was that price? The shed blood and death of Jesus for our sins!! So because of this we are to glorify God with our bodies and our spirits because they are now God's! 

Each day we may need to remind ourselves, I am God's! Let me not do my will today but the will of my Father in heaven for He owns me!

Dwell on this today...it is deep!

You think you have peer pressure????

Talk about slap in the face!



This will be short and simple. I read this verse this morning and just want to fall to my knees asking God to forgive this nation:

Acts 10:35
35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.

I know this is verse is on a individual basis but think as nation what this verse is saying.....rejected!

Pray folks, pray.

Are you a pattern to follow?



When you are making something you often use a pattern to follow. What about your faith/life to others? Is it something to be followed? Or would it lead others away from Jesus Christ?

Titus 2:7-8
7 in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, 8 sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.

Don't miss this list: good works, integrity by keeping the Word of God, reverence for God, incorruptibility, talk that can't be held against you!!!! If through the Holy Spirit we do these things no one can put us to shame! They won't be able to find anything evil to say about us! This should be the follower of Jesus pattern everyday!

So how about it, is this your pattern???
