It's our privilege and honor to carry the title 'Father' given by God our creator. We are made in His image and likeness, existing through His gift of life.
God has granted us to bear children through generations to come. Our impact is passed onto our children and grandchildren.
Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Since we share the word 'Father' from our Heavenly Father, it is humbling and honorable reminder of our responsibility to model heavenly Father's love and, care for our children and nurture them in His ways.
As children of our Father in heaven, let us represent Him well and follow Him as our role model.
Happy Father's Day!
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
We take this time to remember, and say a prayer of gratefulness for the many who have been willing to pay a great price for our freedom.
This Memorial day is a reminder to us that there is incredible love and sacrifice displayed when one is willing to stand strong and fight for freedom.
Grateful for all the men and women in uniform who have protected our nation, fought and sacrificed their lives for our nation, and continue to fight, so courageously for our nation.
This service of love and sacrifice on behalf of all people, points us directly to the greatest love of all, the very gift and sacrifice of Christ.
Happy Memorial Day!
The angels asked the women: “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee.
This is the good news of Easter. Jesus Christ has conquered sin and death and the grave. He rose from the dead on Easter morning.
He is alive and well today. You will not find him among the dead, for he is among the living. And he offers new life to you.
The Bible tells us that those who trust in Christ will share in his resurrection. The fear of death and judgment is taken away.
That’s good news anytime! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
1 Peter 5:6 - Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
Lent season is the best time to draw closer to God. Walking with God in humbleness, faithfulness and obedience. This is the time of preparation for what is yet to come.
Jesus was tempted in the wilderness but by praying and fasting He rebuked temptations with the perfect faith and obedience. He has overcome this world and we can too, with Him on our side.
The Lenten season reminds us of our need for a Savior as a time to reflect and repent for our shortcomings. Lent prepares us as we approach Good Friday and Easter with thanksgiving for the grace and mercy shown to us.
As we pray and seek God wholeheartedly, He will show up faithfully every time. As we trust Him to turn ashes into beauty, we will see the breakthroughs and miracles happening. We have hope in Him alone.
Spend more time with God everyday and experience the miracle that is yet to come.
Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
To all the faithful ones, keep doing good and don't give up. When we are in Christ, it's natural to be doing good and honoring others.
Doing good involves yielding to the Spirit and exhibiting the fruit He produces—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal 5:22-23).
It is important to rest while you serve. Jesus rested and so should we (Mark 6:31). Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mark 14:38).
We will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up doing good.
Psalms 34: 15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;
God is always watching over you whether you are aware of it or not. He sees everything that is going on in your life and around this world. Nothing escapes the eyes of God.
When we cry to Him, He already knows what is going on because He deeply cares about each one of you.
God is waiting to hear you every day. You are part of His plans and He desires your time. Make Him a part of your everyday lives.
Rest in the fact that God deeply cares for you.
“ For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
If you are in Christ, you are a child of God, loved and cherished by your Father in heaven. God's love is unconditional. There is nothing you can do to make Him love you more, and there is absolutely nothing that can separate you from His love.
God never forsakes you. He loves you despite your mistakes and failures. God does not change. He cannot abandon you. He does not turn away from you or give up on you when others do. He is there for you always. His arms are open wide for you.
We must love others just as Jesus loves us. Since we experienced merciful, graceful, forgiving, infinite love of Jesus, we can share the same love with others. Luke 10:27 says ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
Receive God's infinite love and love others like Jesus did.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)
To fight against the darkness we come to God with our hearts and minds prepared by fasting and praying, and we present our request of winning against the evil and overcoming the spiritual warfare. One of the most powerful weapons is fasting prayers.
By fasting, our carnal impulses are forced to relinquish control. It compels us to accept that what we fight against is not external. The true enemy is spiritual and the battlefield is our heart. When we fast, we position ourselves for God to move.
For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
In the days of Mordecai and Esther, all the Jews fasted and prayed together (Esther 4:16 ) in order to seek victory in battle against their enemies. God is pleased when we fast and His favor rests on our side.
We fast and pray for God to intervene and give us victory against the enemy. Our victory comes only from Him.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 1 For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. 2 A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. 3 A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. 4 A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. 5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. 6 A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. 7 A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. 8 A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.
With the start of new year comes new season. Make the best of this new season to move towards God’s purposes in your life. Leave behind every hindrance that is going against your higher calling. It’s time to revive, renew and rejuvenate.
Get up and do your part, take initiative and walk in obedience and God will bring you to the fulfillment of His purpose in your life. Bask in His presence and walk in His will this new season.
Happy New Year!!!
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
On this Christmas, as we remember Christ’s birth, let’s ponder about what Jesus represents and what His purpose on this earth was.
The main purpose was to save each one of us and that none should perish (John 3:16). Also to bring us in close connection, and bridge us to our Father in heaven.
When we are in connection with Him, His Holy Spirit is active and helps us to live lives that reflect and represent who Jesus is.
So, from here on let’s focus on the things above which is more meaningful eternally than temporary things that shatter in a moment. Jesus said, I am the light of the world.
Make room to receive Him today and be in the light of His presence which is continual source of our everyday living.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
