Did you know that how you treat a follower of Jesus is how you treat Jesus?!? Jesus talks about it in the passage where on judgment day all nations will be gathered to him and he will start separating the people into two groups as you would sheep from the goats.
Do you live one way at church or with your Christian friends but then live a a completely different life away from them or behind close doors? Is a double life pleasing to the Lord? And that is the question I answer in this video!
God has high standards and one of those standards is to love your enemies no matter what they have done to you. In this video I talk about what Jesus said about Loving Your Enemies and how God doesn’t ask us to do anything He doesn’t do!
Some times we believe the lie that our past is better than what our future holds. That our glory days are behind us and there is nothing left to do except live out our days and die. But can I tell you if walk with God that could not be further from the truth. The Israelites during the time of the prophet Haggai believed there past was greater than their future but God wanted them to know that was not the truth at all.
In this video I talk about the time I saw a leg grow 4 to 5 inches right before my eyes because it was shorter than the other leg. I have seen miracles but my cry is the same as Habakkuk Lord I have heard of your fame and stand in awe of your deeds, now do it in our day and time. That can be your cry as well. God still does miracles, signs, and wonders today!
God is my Refuge: But what does that mean? What does that look like. In that video I answer both questions and talk about the prophet Nahum who was encouraging the Israelites even though they were being oppressed by the Ninevites.
In my previous devotion I talked about how God is running after us but we have a role to play and that is to turn and run back to God. If we don’t then there is no relationship it is just God running after us with us running away. Today’s devotion is all about returning to a loving, compassionate, forgiving God.
Talking about the prophet Hosea who God told to marry a prostitute named Gomer. When Gomer ran away the Lord told Hosea to go get her back. What He did for her will blow your mind. and just as Hosea went after Gomer the Lord relentlessly pursues us because he loves us and sees something in us we don’t see in ourselves
The verse we talk about today is a perfect prayer to pray for a new heart. Not only can you pray this prayer over yourself but over others. “Lord remove my heart of stone and give me a heart of flesh”
If you spend any time with Jesus He will start putting people on your heart to speak to. Here is the deal God wants you to know it doesn’t matter if they listen to you or not. Your job is obedience. God’s job is results. He still wants to give them a message even if they listen or not . WHY BECAUSE HE LOVES THEM and is a relentless lover and cares for his creation!!!
