SEP. 7, YOUR DAILY CLIMB (DEVOTINAL)

Sep. 5, 2017

MY FRIENDS, WE HAVE BEEN CHOSEN, SO WE MUST NOW STAND FIRM, STAY FOCUSED, AND ENDURE!!!

Today we can honestly say the best is yet to come in spite of what we encounter from day to day in this relentless battle Satan and His forces are waging in their vicious and maddening pursuit for each of our souls. And as children of the King we must never settle for anything less than God’s best for our life Because His promise in Matt. 7:9-11 (NIV) states, “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?

If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! My friends, It’s time we all say I am ready to put off the old man or woman, because we are no longer lost sheep, for we have decided to never stop allowing self to die daily as we realize “the Spirit who lives in you and I is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” 1 John 4:4 (NLT)

Today we have been set apart to finish Christ work here on earth for “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” So please my friends pledge with me today that we all will be the man or women God created us to be. Just think how great it is living in the 21st century God’s chosen generation to finish his mandate “for such a time as this.”

In addition, It is now clearer than ever before why Satan is so determine that we fall in some area of our life. and he will never stop or take one prisoner so now as we die daily through God’s word and Spirit, the things of this world that draws our attention away from Christ must become obsolete, as we lay prostrate before God in humility and with no reservations that the good work he started in us He can now “carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Today God’s will must be complete within us as we understand now more then ever before that we are children of the King. So my friends today let’s give it all to the Master. Not tomorrow, but at this very moment let’s put on the whole amour of God and not let Satan intimidate, or discourage us any longer because we are God’s chosen His royal priesthood.

A holy nation, God’s special possession, [who will] declare the praises of him who called you and I out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV) Our faith also tells us we were chosen for such “a time as this.” Oh what a honor, so we must now stand firm, stay focused and endure while only using the power of the cross to sustain us until we hear”well done thy good and faithful servant.”

So now my friends, let’s tell the world together, “Come and hear, all who fear God, And I will declare what He has done for my soul. I cried to Him with my mouth, And He was extolled with my tongue. If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear. But certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, Who has not turned away my prayer, Nor His mercy from me!” Ps. 66:16-20

MY FRIENDS, IS GOD’S GRACE SUFFICIENT FOR YOU AND I?

MY FRIENDS, IS GOD’S GRACE SUFFICIENT FOR YOU AND I?

Paul tell us, “to keep himself from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given [to him] in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass [him, and], to keep [him] from becoming conceited. Three times he pleaded with the Lord about this [pain], that it imgres3should leave. But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.

Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 (ESV) Which tells you and I that Christ unmerited and undeserving favor is sufficient for every situation and circumstances of our life.

For His power is made perfect in all of our weakness. “And It is because of  His grace we must be crucified with Christ daily until it is no longer you or I who live, but Christ who lives in us; and the life which we now live in the flesh, we live by Faith in the Son of God, who loved us, and delivered Himself up for our [salvation].” Gal. 2:20 (NKJV)

Yes, His grace is sufficient to carry us through the storms and rough terrains of this life all the way to His pure and holy kingdom which willchrist-hugging-300x216 continue throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity. Therefore, we must understand as God’s children we are all “shapen in iniquity; and in sin did our mother’s conceive us.” Ps. 51:5 (KJV)

Therefore, we are not placed in time out or given only limited access to His grace because of our sinful nature. But  through the power of God’s grace we must understand, “there is salvation in no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NASB)

Consistent with this, as we look at all God has done for us, we must endure through our “weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities of this life.” And my friends, as you and I look at the plan of Salvation, With no reservation we should all be able to say; do we really believe, Our Father allowed His Son to go through all He did for our salvation, and we personally have no cross to bear?

thNo, Via Dolorosa the (“Way of Grief”) through our journey here on this earth?  But, the question we must also ask ourselves like the one “who, desires to build a tower, does he [or she] not first sit down and count the cost, whether they have enough to complete it? Luke 14:28 (KJV) So in regards to our salvation, as we count the cost, is God’s grace sufficient enough to complete God’s will for our lives here on this earth?

Or has Christ timing for a commitment caught most of His children at a bad time?  And is it at a bad time, because His standard for our Salvation seems to be out of touch with our plans at this point in our life?  “So now consider what it means to desire heaven, and yet turn away from Christ because of the conditions laid down?” So, we tell ourselves, whatever God’s unmerited and undeserving favor is, it really has to be sufficient for now?
