Feeling Weary?

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 11:9)

Feeling Weary? Jesus Christ, the Word of God made flesh (John 1:14) says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you (the battle is not yours, it’s the Lord’s) and learn from Me, for I am gently and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy (His work is finished) and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV.

Do you know why there is rest in Him, well according to Isaiah 40:28-29 and 31, “The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.” The word goes on to say that, “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Believers if you find yourself feeling weary cease from your works and effort and rest in Christ’s efforts and finished work, His yoke is easy because when you come to Jesus, who never faints or gets weary; you draw on and receive His strength, His unshakeable, unwavering faith, belief and power. Christ is asking you to come to Him and He will give you rest. Rest from your weariness, rest from your burdens, rest from your efforts, your struggles, your faith and belief and He will be your faith, Christ will be your belief, He will be your strength, He will fight your battles, He will be all that you need and more, HE WILL BECAUSE HE CAN.

Be free men and women of God, let go of yourself and your works, the word of God says that it is by His stripes (His efforts not ours) that we are healed. Let go, put your trust and hope in Him, knowing that He is able.  Give it all to Christ and Rest in the Great I am.

Let us therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish.” Hebrew 4:11

Give Thanks

The Lord said, “For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.”  

“Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?”

 “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” (Matthew: 25:35-40) NKJV

There are about 7 billion people in the world today, 1 in 7 people are hungry that’s roughly 925 million hungry people in the world today. In my research I found that malnutrition plays a huge role in the deaths of almost five million children each year.  According to worldhunger.org, “The world produces enough food to feed everyone. World agriculture produces 17 percent more calories per person today than it did 30 years ago, despite a 70 percent population increase. This is enough to provide everyone in the world with at least 2,720 kilocalories (kcal) per person per day.”

There are so many ways you can help: Donate food to your local Food Bank, raise money, start an outreach program through your church or your work place, contact your legislator and find out how the government plans to combat world hunger or at the very least give a hot meal to the homeless person you drive pass every day. This Thanksgiving Holiday give thanks to the Lord by giving to the least of these. God bless and may you be a blessing to someone else this thanksgiving. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

What is Love?

What
is Love?

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always, preserves. Love never fails.”( 1Corinthian 13: 4-8) NIV

“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is love. (1John 4:8-10) NIV
