Stop Revisiting Old Pains


Scripture Reading — John 21:4-17

 
Praise the Lord Beloved,
happy Wednesday to you.
 
Today’s focal verse John 21:15:
“Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
 
Beloved, John 18:18 says that Peter warmed himself by a fire the night he denied his Lord three times. As the smell of outdoor fish being cooked floated toward Peter, surely it brought back bitter memories of his past failure.
 
Beloved, when Jesus asked for some fish, Peter quickly rushed off to supply it.
 
But the question that stands at hand is:
“Was Peter really excited to get away briefly, or was he really trying to show he could be helpful?
 
Beloved, Jesus knows our past failures can seriously obstruct our future efforts and disconnect the energy pack of daily joy from the lives of His followers. Now “I” think Jesus was deliberately recreating the scene to help Peter face his past and be renewed in His service.
 
Beloved, I don’t know what past failures may be harming your present pursuits or what unhealed hurts may be hindering you from following Jesus.
 
But let me tell you, constantly picking at a deep infected wound can be very painful and the healing process may be slow at best.
 
Beloved, run to Him and stop revisiting old pain. Stay focused on what’s ahead and not behind.
Look at the scars in His hands. He understands our hurts and knows how to heal them.

Concentration That Brings Confidence


1st Timothy 6:9

Praise the Lord Beloved!!!
Happy Friday to everyone.

Well the weekend is upon us once again and you know,
weekends seem to be the days that many choices must made. You know non-Christians live with a false sense of security. They assume that what is important in this life is the physical and material. But there is no safety in things. Those whose drive (determination) is affluence and fitness rather than God find that their visions or desire either go unfulfilled or leave them frustrated. Christians hook their focus into the solid rock of Jesus Christ. His Words are ALWAYS TRUE and HIS PROMISES ARE NEVER BROKEN.

Beloved, for a Christian, the best choice a Christian can make is to choose to
concentrate on his or her confidence on the Lord Jesus Christ. Beloved, this weekend welcome whatever fits His will for your life, and turn away from all that doesn’t. Circumstances may cause modification, but Jesus never does. So, Beloved, concentrate on Jesus and He’ll help you make the right choices confidently this weekend.

Have a Blessed Weekend Everyone!!! 😀

“A Fresh Start”


Praise the Lord Beloved!!! 😃
Happy Wednesday to you.

Beloved, have you ever wanted to wipe your slate clean and start over?

I know that can seem impossible, especially when you’re dealing with a difficult situation or the repercussions of bad choices. Well let me tell you, even if circumstances appear insurmountable, impossible, or irreversible, Jesus Christ can give you a fresh start.

You know when the Lord said a person must be born again to see the kingdom of God, in the third chapter of John, Nicodemus wondered how it was possible to go back in time for a second chance. But what Jesus was talking about is a new spiritual beginning, not a physical one. He goes on to explain later in that conversation that a new birth comes through believing in Him for salvation.

Beloved, receiving Christ occurs in a single moment but living by faith involves regularly turning from sin to live in obedience to Him. So, whether you’re coming to Jesus for salvation or approaching Him once more for cleansing from sin, He’s faithful to grant forgiveness and the chance to begin again.
