God Will Do Amazing Things Through You!

Morning Inspiration! Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20 This beautiful Scripture explains that God’s Holy Spirit is constantly at work inside us, giving us the ability to do so much more for the Kingdom of the Lord than we could ever imagine. Jesus chose normal, average people to be His Apostles; to share the Good News & build His church. From just 12 simple men, our faith has spread throughout the world, & changed society in endless positive & wonderful ways. Their legacy continues today, with each of us called to serve Jesus in our own little way. Through the power of His Holy Spirit, our small works will be magnified & multiplied, just as Jesus did with the bread & the fish. We can do nothing of lasting value on our own, so we willingly give God all the credit, every ounce of the glory we may receive, for the things we do in His name.

The Importance of Spiritual Nutrition

Morning Inspiration: A wise person is hungry for truth, while the fool feeds on trash. Proverbs 15:14 Even more important than what foods we allow into our bodies, is what we feed our minds! Whether it's books, magazines or the internet, TV programs, movies, or music...content matters! So much of what is out there today is nothing more than trash. We wouldn't think of eating garbage, so why do we allow so much of it to invade our eyes & ears? Our heart & mind grows so much better, stronger & effective, when we focus on feeding on God's Word & things that are pleasing to Jesus.

God's Strength Is Highlighted Through Our Weakness

Morning Inspiration! We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.
2 Corinthians 4:7 Anyone devoted to serving Jesus, has a glow in their heart, that can’t be held inside. The light of Jesus that lives in us, is designed to ‘escape’ out into the world, to shine on those God brings you into contact with. It’s okay to allow them to see the real you, with all your natural weakness,flaws & imperfections. When they see just how normal & human you are, they will begin to understand that the powerful things you do for others, are only possible because of your personal relationship with, & love of Jesus.

Don't Know What To Say? Pray Anyway!

Morning Inspiration! And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.
Romans 8:26–27 It’s common to face situations in life that seem so overwhelming, that we don’t even know what to say! Yet Scripture instructs us to always pray anyway! How do we pray, if we don’t know what to say? This verse teaches that God’s Holy Spirit will do the asking for us. The key is to be honest, admitting we don’t know where to start; then having an open & willing heart, to what God’s will is for our life. Always ask that God’s will be done, through the guidance of His only Son. It’s only through a personal relationship with Jesus as your Lord & Savior, that the Holy Spirit is able to work fully in your life. His works, &…

Accepting What We All Need

Morning Inspiration! People who accept discipline are on the pathway to life, but those who ignore correction will go astray. Proverbs 10:17 Like it or not, we all need discipline! I truly believe that human beings actually crave it, though we often don’t appreciate it’s extreme value. Discipline comes in a variety of ways; from a parent, coach, supervisor or pastor. It’s well known that our Lord disciplines us when needed, & He does so because we are His much-loved children! I’ve learned the hard way, that it’s much easier to discipline myself, than to let it get to the point where God needs to do it for me. Accepting the fact that we each need a good dose of personal discipline, prevents most of the need for us to receive it from others. Personal Discipline results from the root of the word associated with being a serious Disciple of Jesus.

Your Faith Needs Supplements!

Morning Inspiration! Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.
2nd Peter 1:5-7 What? Isn’t just having faith enough? Peter encourages us to add personal supplements! Moral excellence, knowledge, self control, patient endurance, godliness, brotherly affection & love are each critically important to being used by God. These traits don’t ‘just happen’ because we give our lives to Christ. They take lots of effort, work & practice, because they are not natural. Making them part of who we are, requires the supernatural! God’s Holy Spirit works powerfully within us, as we make the ongoing, concentrated effort to become more like Jesus.

You Already Have Everything You Need

Morning Inspiration! By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3 Don’t take this Scripture lightly! The Lord has already given us EVERYTHING we need, to live a godly life! In other words, we have it, so all we need to do, is use it! The key is truly getting to know Jesus through a deep & personal relationship. This comes through study of the Bible, prayer & practice of what He taught us. Knowledge & understanding of Jesus, allow us to receive His great & precious promises. They enable us to escape the corruption of this world, by becoming more & more like our Savior.
