May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
We were created with a longing for Christ. We unsuccessfully try to fill this emptiness with people, things, and projects. But the truth is, only Jesus can satisfy your soul. only Jesus can make you whole. It’s not enough just to know who he is, you need to personally experience the love of Christ in your life.
My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power.
It’s not always about the words we use when we try to tell people about Jesus that matters. It’s often about the way we live for God that makes the most difference. Sometimes actions do speak louder than words. Whether you know it or not, people are watching you and they see the changes in you that only Christ can make.
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Every believer at one time or another has doubts about their purpose. As long as you still have some faith God will work with what you have. It’s not about your power or your strength, it’s about having faith in the power of Christ. When you feel doubt and fear creeping in ask God to help you overcome your unbelief and increase your faith.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
God’s love for us was established since the beginning of time. It is confirmed for us daily as he forgives, protects, provides, heals, and demonstrates his continued grace, mercy and power in our lives. God’s magnificent love is like himself sovereign, unchangeable, and everlasting.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Faith is believing in the one, true God without actually seeing him. It is the foundation and firm belief in the power, faithfulness, and love of God. Faith is what helps us make it to the end, knowing that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and by the power of the resurrection we will be in heaven with God for all eternity.
Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
God is all powerful and nothing is too hard for him. When we feel overwhelmed by our circumstances we need only remember that we serve a mighty God who created the heavens and the earth. He loves us, cares for us, and nothing is impossible for him. Nothing is beyond his power and there is nothing that his power cannot affect.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
God cannot be measured; he cannot be defined by human standards. He has no beginning and no end. He always was, he is, and always will be. He has no limits but because our minds are finite we try to box him into a set form. We need to remove the parameters we put on God and have faith in his limitless power, with God all things are possible.
