“Knowing that the testing of your FAITH produces PATIENCE. But let PATIENCE have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, LACKING NOTHING. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all LIBERALLY and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in FAITH……” James 1:3-6 (NKJV)

imagesMy friends Today let’s FOCUS on our FAITH, and the GRACE, and MERCY of God who gave His only Begotten Son for our Salvation, and a Son who laid down His life for our transgressions. First let’s go to 1 Peter 2:21-25 (NKJV)

“For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, LEAVING YOU AN EXAMPLE FOR YOU TO FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS, who committed no sin…He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were CONTINUALLY STRAYING LIKE SHEEP, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.”

My friends COUNTDOWN started at CALVARY and I think after 2,000 years it is safe to say it’s been a MARATHON. But if your sight is constantly on the prize even though you were CONTINUALLY STRAYING LIKE SHEEP off the course.

Satan has made this race absolutely grueling, as we now approach the final lap, Athlete Running Through Finish Lineand if you are a Child of God you should be visualizing in HOPE of  finishing soon, and receiving your reward.

And not to the first place finisher or to the one who ran the fastest, but to whoever ENDURES through FAITH with the WEIGHT of only the CROSS on their shoulders.

And of course to all who are moving with the same PASSION, and determination, with the guidance of the Spirit of God in this final lap as you did when you first started this race as you continue to spread the good news of Christ saving grace to friends, family, love one’s, co-workers, and a world that has lost sight of the SAVING GRACE AND MERCY of our savior.

imagesWhile never ceasing to ask the question; what else God? I’m still AVAILABLE. There is still more of me left, because there is still breath in my body. Friends VICTORY is hard, the course is narrow, few will finish, but if  through our Faith, and God’s Spirit HOLD ON to the promises in God’s Word. “GOD will never leave nor forsake us.”

Imagine the Storms of this life that has allowed, despair, heartache’s, pain, misery and death, will no longer exist in God’s kingdom. But today our FOCUS must be on the fact that TIME, GRACE, and the Mercies of God has taken its TOIL.

God has allowed your STORM, whatever it may be, to become a constant measure of your faith and righteousness as you wrestled against the principalities, and the rulers of the darkness of this world. Oh but my God promises are sure and complete “…not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.. 2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)

1 John 4:4 (ASV) tells us “Ye are of God, my little children, and have overcome them: because greater is HE that is in you roadthan he that is in the world.” My friends In other words the Destiny that my God has set for His Children, as He transforms our character to be like His. Is greater than any storm that Satan may create in our life to discourage us from finishing this race, and entering God’s pure and holy kingdom.

Friends GOD will get us to the promise land if we only BELIEVE, as He allows His FAITHFUL to understand, and focus on the fact that He is the PERFECT STORM of our LIFE. Ps. 16:8-11(NKJV) tells us “I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will show me the path of life; In Your PRESENCE is fullness of JOY; At Your right hand are PLEASURES FOREVERMORE.” OH MY FRIENDS THE GRACE AND MERCIES OF GOD.



So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
