Just a Moment

You don’t know when you may touch another’s life; be it little or big, a moment or a lifetime; you may spend a moment and last a lifetime.

You’ll never know, you say. But, you will know–some day.

So spend the moment; invest it in another’s life, like it is the value of a lifetime–a lifeline. Seek to know, into the soul of one you may never know.

In a moment of a lifetime, it may just be the moment that changes their forever. You may be the key that unlocks their door to eternity.

You just may be key.

Will you do it for Me? Just a moment

For Me

“And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, for ‘In him we live and move and have our being’, as even some of your poets have said, “For we are indeed his offspring.'” Acts 17:26-28

“‘I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.'” Isaiah 42:6-7

Did We Pray?

Gather together what you need and we will proceed into this day. This day that seems like any other day, but something is missing–

We didn’t pray.

You see when you pray, I AM praying with you. I AM the Door that opens the Way to the Father. Your Father hears your prayers when you pray through Me–pray in My Name.

“So Jesus again said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not heed them. I am the door; if any one enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.'” John 10:7-9

“I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.” John 10:14

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.'” John 14:6

“–Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name. Hitherto you have asked nothing in my name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” John 16:23-24

Learn to pray as you begin each day–

for you know not what your day will bring. But I AM the light that brightens your day, lifting the burdens along the way.

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'” John 8:12

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Many things hidden seem not to impress, but later become mountains when you’re under duress. Prayer roots out the smallest factor that could hinder the day–

you didn’t stop to pray.

“Catch us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom.” Song of Solomon 2:15

“May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:11-14

For in him all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:19-20

 

 

Never Look Back

Narrow  is the way that leads to life and few there be that find it. It is indeed a narrow path, but it is hard packed and well-trodden. For all who walk the narrow way, follow in the same footsteps, they follow their Lord.

Jesus Christ, the gate whereby you enter–there is no other way to enter into life everlasting, but by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Once entered by the Blood, you must follow in His footsteps; for He alone knoweth the way to the Father. I AM the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh to the Father, but by Me.

You are in good company on that lonely path. Those who have gone before were men and women of strong faith and utmost integrity. They weren’t afraid to be different and were not ashamed to declare allegiance to their Lord, King Jesus. Who once bore the shame of the world, that you might become righteous.

Those who have gone before you, found the narrow way and are seated with Him in heavenly places, at the right hand of the Father.

Ruling and reigning

With Him

Whose footsteps they tracked

Never to look back

Never look back!

“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Matthew 7:13-14

“But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved, through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God, not because of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:4-10

“I am the door; if any one enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” John 10:9

“–whoever keeps his word, in him truly love for God is perfected. By this we may be sure that we are in him; he who says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way, in which he walked.” IJohn 2:5-6

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

“Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!” Psalms 119:1-3
