The word of God tells us “Do not appear before the Lord empty-handed, for all that you offer is in fulfillment of the commandment. The offering of the righteous enriches the altar, and its pleasing odor rises before the Most High. The sacrifice of the righteous is acceptable, and will never be forgotten. Be generous when you worship the Lord, and do not stint the first fruits of your hands” – Sirach. 35:6-10

Many of us do not understand the importance of tithes or one-tenth. God says that one-tenth of everything that we have belong to him. “Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in my house” – Malachi. 8:10

The greatest enemy of every man here on earth is fear. Fear rules most of the people in the world. Everyone is frightened of one or the other factor, in life. Fear of death, sickness, failure, being caught in unfaithfulness, etc. Lots of people are frightened about the future. What will happen, tomorrow and what will I do, if the situation comes tomorrow? For all these problems, my dear, the only solution is, Trust in God. “He will not fail you or forsake you. For he says I will never leave you or forsake you” (Hebrews. 13:5). So if you take his word seriously, I mean, if you believe in his word, you can confidently say “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid, what can anyone do to me?” (Hebrews. 13:6)

Every human person, here on earth, desires power and honour richness, position, name and fame and in order to achieve that he or she strives day and night, and when one does not get what he or she wants, he lives in sorrow and sadness. My dear brothers and sisters, what this world offers to us does not stay with us forever. What power or position, we get from people is temporary and that is why we see everywhere fights and troubles in political, social, institutional placements. There is fight and injustice and destruction for the sake of power and recognitions. Hence, the word of God, tells us, do not desire this world and its glory, that will pass away. It will not remain forever. The rich will become poor, master will be a slave, ruler will be ruled, minister will have to be an ordinary citizen, so on and so forth. Hence seek glory and honour, power and authority from God, in order to serve him and honour him. We read, Jesus gave this power and authority in the Gospel. “All authority in Heaven and on Earth, God has given to me, go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt. 28: 28-29). The authority, what the disciples received from Jesus was permanent. The authority God gave to his prophets was permanent. We need today authority from God to overcome all evil. Jesus says “See I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of enemy, and nothing will hurt you” (Luke. 10:19)

If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord & believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). Confession is where we take the word of God and speak it aloud to our self to begin to minister to our very own soul. Our soul is our mind, will, intellect and emotions.  The soul is one of the places we have to get rid of our unbelief and to change how we think and feel about our circumstances. We need to take the Word of God that pertains to our needs and say them aloud to ourselves daily.

Jesus said “I tell you, on the day of judgment you will have to give an account for every careless word you utter” (Matthew 12:36). Our words have power to affect our present situations and they also determine our future. We are living today based on the words which we have spoken in the past. Each word that we speak has either creative or destructive power. Relationships can be destroyed by words or lack of words, things that are said or things that should be said that are not said, hence we need to replace our negative words, with the Word of God. Jesus said “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). So our words determine the state of our heart.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

TESTIMONIALS

GREAT IS OUR GOD

Jesus alone is God,
No one can stand against our Lord,
Father of all holy one,
In blessings his children never fall short.

Everyone will bow down low,
The atheist and theist both,
They tremble and fall,
When they hear the name of Jesus, our God.

He is everything and all in all,
All authority comes from heaven above,
So let us not raise ourselves to the utmost,
But glorify him through what he has given you all

In Jesus alone is our salvation,
And no one can ever save your life at all,
He alone listens to your call,
No saint or angels will come to console your hurt.

FIGHT GOD'S FIGHT

Arise and let your light shine
Move ahead and never stop your fight
God is with you and one day you will be fine
Just fight the war which he wants you to fight.

Let the light of your love shine,
Fire of anger may not be your light,
Your fight is against the one who's seated in the darkness,
With Christ's light you can defeat him with Christ's brightness.

Don't let your heart be discouraged,
If the evil is multiplying in a greater extend.
Let the evil be defeated by good,
If God is with us than who could ever stop us?

If you want to be a victorious warrior,
Then between you and Jesus break all the barriers,
Put on the armor of God,
And with Christ your war is already won.
