Nov 13 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: GOD, THE HEARER

Nov 13 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: GOD, THE HEARER

Isaiah 65:24 “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”

As saved, Holy Ghost filled people, we know that God will never leave or forsake us.  We know that he will be with us always, even until the end of the world. Therefore it is important to stay connected to him because when we tap into his presence, he hears us and will answer us. 1Peter 3:12 says,  “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayers.”  In these last and evil days, if we just call out to God (open our mouths), he will hear our cries and answer our prayers.

Nov 12 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: BEYOND UNDERSTANDING

Nov 12 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: BEYOND UNDERSTANDING

Jeremiah 33:3Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

The word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah while he was in prison reminding him that he serves a God that not only hears His people, but will show up in great and mighty ways. God appointed Jeremiah to prophesy judgment, salvation, and His coming to the nations. The plight of Jeremiah, a man of God who is imprisoned for sharing God’s instructions to His people, reminds us that our journey through life walking with God does not come without risk, rejection, and persecution. However, God’s assurance to Jeremiah serves as confirmation to us that even in a time of trouble, chaos, disease, bondage and injustice, God hears His people and He will answer and show us great and mighty things beyond our natural and finite understanding. We must remain faithful, trust and serve the true and living God, live holy, and know that when we call unto Him, He will answer!

Nov 11 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: FAITHFUL TO THE SERVICE OF GOD

Nov 11 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: FAITHFUL TO THE SERVICE OF GOD

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

In God, we live, so that we may serve him with our whole heart and be faithful workers in his kingdom.  As servants of God, we have life if we obey his Word through the teachings and guidance of our pastor.  In God, we move, walking in the Spirit always trusting in the Lord even during troubled times.  We have our being in which God strengthens us to do his will, stand strong and serve him with gladness!  God created us for his glory so that our lives may be a witness for him, to the unsaved and backsliders.

Nov 10 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: GOD HAS OUR BACK 

Nov 10 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: GOD HAS OUR BACK 

I Peter 3:12 “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.”

The eyes of the Lord are over us all the time. He constantly watches, provides, and protects us. He knows our problems, but as long as we stay in Jesus, he will continue to protect and take care of us.  God will not ignore the hurtful actions of those who bring suffering to his people. Justice will come in due time because God will forever have our back.

Nov 9 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: A FATHER WHO HEARS MY CRY

Nov 9 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: A FATHER WHO HEARS MY CRY

St. John 14:26 “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

The early spring of 1996 I received a call asking me if I wanted to return to Warrant Officer Candidacy school. I was very reluctant at first considering my age of 36 at the time, and the physical rigors needed to attend. I prayed about it, consulted with my wife and pastor, and God confirmed for me to go and that I would graduate. I had a major setback at the course that would have removed me.  The night before I was going to be removed, the Comforter reminded me through the Word of God that “He would teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”  Always remember to abide in God’s Word because it’s always true.

Nov 8 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: THE WORD-KEEPER

Nov 8 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: THE WORD-KEEPER

Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away,” Matthew 24:35. I am thankful that despite the instabilities and uncertainties of this world that God promised to take care of his people.  From feeding his people fresh manna every morning, to taking care of us during a Pandemic, God is completely trustworthy to keep his promise.  Numbers 23:19 tells us that God is not a man, he can’t lie, nor does he change his mind.  Because God is faithful we should use that same faith to know we can believe what he says and stand on the promise that we will be taken care of spiritually and physically.

Nov 7 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: GOD HEARS YOUR PRAYERS FOR A NEW BEGINNING

Nov 7 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: GOD HEARS YOUR PRAYERS FOR A NEW BEGINNING

2 Corinthians 5:17-18 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;”

When we are baptized in Jesus name, we become new creatures.  Our previous sins are washed away.  Saints of God, the Lord has heard your prayers.  Leave the past behind.  We are redeemed; look towards your future; walk in the newness of life!

Nov 6 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: REFLECTION INCREASES OUR FAITH

Nov 6 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: REFLECTION INCREASES OUR FAITH
 
I Thessalonians 5:18 “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
 

No matter the challenge, obstacle, test, trial, or situation, we are thankful that THE LORD hears us.  REFLECTION IS NOT LIMITED to past events. We thank HIM for our past, we thank HIM for the present, and we bless HIM for our future. He heard us BEFORE, he hears us DURING, and he will hear us AFTER the Pandemic.  Saints of The Most High God, in your time of reflection, remember not only to look back, but also to look forward in sincere appreciation.

Nov 5 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: PRAYER, THE ULTIMATE WEAPON AGAINST FEAR

Nov 5 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS: PRAYER, THE ULTIMATE WEAPON AGAINST FEAR

Philippians 4:6 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

It was Thursday, January 23, 2020, when my faith, my trust, and my confidence in God was tested.  My wife and I were informed that our son had a mass on his brain that was causing blurred vision and recurring headaches, and it needed to be removed immediately!  As the surgeon explained his diagnosis, my chest began to tighten up, the room began to spin out of control and fill up with fear, doubt, worry, and anxiety, BUT GOD!!!  In this focus verse, the Apostle Paul was advising the Phillipians not to worry about life circumstances, but to pray and make their needs known unto GOD!  When we are facing the uncertainties of life events, don’t focus on the circumstances, focus on prayer because it is the ultimate weapon to overcome fear, anxiety, and doubt.  Saints, let us not forget that we have a God that is able to do EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY, above ALL that we ask!

Nov 4 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS:  TRUST THE GOD WHO KNOWS BEST

Nov 4 ~ KNOWING THE GOD WHO HEARS:  TRUST THE GOD WHO KNOWS BEST

Isaiah 55:9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

We see people dying from COVID-19, fires burning out of control, tropical storms, and injustice due to police brutality.  With all the troubles in our world, it is easy to get distracted and get our minds away from the Word of God.  But let me remind you that we serve a God that is sovereign, who has not lost any of His power, and knows what is best for us. Don’t be troubled by what you see because this world is not our home! I encourage you to seek those things that are eternal, keep the faith, and trust God because He knows best.
