Come To God Today!



ARE YOU:

Too Young To Come To God?
Too Old To Come To God?
Too Tired To Come To God?
Too Busy To Come To God?
Too Smart To Come To God?
Too Happy To Come To God?
Too Late To Come To God?
 

Note: None Of The Above Are Legitimate Reasons Not To Come To God Today.

Isaiah 55:6-7 (NIV) says Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on them, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.”

These scriptures tell us to come to God while He is near. God is not planning to move away from us. But we often move far from Him or erect barriers between ourselves and Him. Don't wait until you have drifted far away from God to seek Him.

Or, God may come to judge the world before you decide to come to Him. Come to God today while you can before it is too late.

GOD LOVES YOU!

John 3:16 (NIV) says For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

COME TO GOD TODAY!

Romans 10:9-10 (NIV) says If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”

YOUR SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT FROM GOD.
SIMPLY DO THE FOLLOWING:

Say the following prayer with your mouth and believe it in your heart and you will be saved. Then, immediately tell someone else what you just did to confirm your salvation.

Lord Jesus,
I'm a sinner and my sins deserve judgment. Thank you for paying the penalty for my sins with your death on the cross. I ask you to forgive my sins, come into my life and cleanse me. Thank you for saving me, Jesus, for giving me a new start today and for helping me to live for you. In your name I pray. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer and meant it from your heart, your are now saved (born again) and adopted as a child of God. Welcome to the family of God!

Being Your Own Best Friend


NOTE: This is a Guest Post used with permission from Gloria Thomas Anderson, LMSW at http://www.hearttones.com.
 

A friend of mine once told me that she only felt “worthy” when there was a new goal to accomplish. Rather than feeling successful after completing a project, she felt sad. Another friend shared that she found herself self-sabotaging her efforts when things were going well because she somehow felt “unworthy” of success and was afraid that others might see her imperfections if she were to achieve her goals.

There’s an old English proverb that says, “You may find the worst enemy or best friend in yourself”. How true for both of my friends--and possibly others.

How we talk to ourselves and what we believe about ourselves is critical to what we experience in our lives. Being able to recognize when your thoughts are turning toward hindering emotions like fear, doubt, anxiety or guilt is important so that you can reconnect to the positive side of self-acceptance and value within.

We are more than what we are doing in life—we are also who we are being in life. In order for us to move from regret to renewal, we must be willing to forgive ourselves and consider our own self a "friend".

We sometimes forget that we are spiritual beings living in a physical body with a human soul. We forget to embrace our own lives—Whose we are, and how far we’ve already come by the Grace and Mercy of God. We forget that we are limited with time and space and that life is not certain past the moments we have right in the here and now.

I encourage you to treat your own self with the love and compassion you share with others. See yourself as your own “best friend.” Embrace your life and celebrate God’s gift of “you”. Above all else, remember often that you are always loved by our Creator.

Blessings to you,

Fight The Good Fight Of Faith




1 Timothy 6:12 (AMP) says Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses.”

BE WELL BALANCED AND SELF-DISCIPLINED

1 Peter 5:8 (AMP) says Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour.”

BE ALERT AND CAUTIOUS

Lions attack sick, young, or struggling animals. They choose victims who are alone or not alert. Here we are warned to watch out for Satan when we are suffering or being persecuted. Feeling alone, weak, helpless and cut off from other believers, so focused on our troubles that we forget to watch for danger, we are especially vulnerable to Satan's attacks.

1 Peter 5:9 (AMP) says But resist him, be firm in your faith [against his attack—rooted, established, immovable], knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being experienced by your brothers and sisters throughout the world. [You do not suffer alone.]”

RESIST THE DEVIL

During times of suffering, seek other Christians for support (but, be careful who you choose). Keep your eyes on Christ, and resist the devil. Then, “he will flee from you”. James 4:7

GOD WILL COMPLETE YOU

1 Peter 5:10 (AMP) says After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace [who imparts His blessing and favor], who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you [making you what you ought to be].”

YOUR SUFFERING WILL END

When we are suffering, we often feel as though our pain will never end. In comparison to eternity, our suffering lasts only for a little while. Some of us will be strengthened and delivered in our own lifetime. Others of us will be released from our suffering only through death.

WE ARE ASSURED OF ETERNAL LIFE WITH CHRIST

Revelation 21:4 (NIV) says He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Remember, all of God's faithful followers are assured of an eternal life with Christ where there will be no more tears or suffering.

Let Jesus Carry Your Load.



LIVE A FRUITFUL AND PRODUCTIVE LIFE

To live a fruitful and productive life, cast all your cares, concerns, anxieties and worries on God. He is the only one who can solve them. Continue to pray and fight the good fight of faith knowing that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Philippians 4:13

1 Peter 5:7 (AMP) says “Casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].”

TRUST GOD FULLY WITH YOUR LIFE

Carrying your worries, stresses, and daily struggles by yourself shows that you have not trusted God fully. It takes humility, however, to recognize that God cares, to admit your need, and to let others in God's family help you.

GOD CARES ABOUT YOU

Sometimes we think that struggles caused by our own sin and foolishness are not God's concern. But when we turn to God in repentance, He will bear the weight even of those struggles. Letting God have your anxieties calls for action, not passivity. Don't submit to your circumstance, but submit them to God who controls all circumstances.
