We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks! For Your wondrous works declare Your name is near! Psalm 75 NKJV
I heard a man say; “Leadership is establishing reality and giving hope.” I am thankful Jesus does just that. What is reality? What do we have to be hopeful for?
But I will declare forever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. Vs 9
I am thankful we can join with Jesus to establish reality and give other people hope!
Eleven years ago Jesus began ministering to me in a new way.
The Word of God filled my heart and mind. It was as if someone was preaching to me through my own thoughts. Jesus was feeding me with the truth of His Word. Jesus gave me hope during a season of heartache and pain. My life has never been the same!
I started sharing the things Jesus put in my heart with other people. Feeding my mind with the Word of God keeps my mind focused on reality. Sharing the Word of God with other people gives me hope!
Sharing our faith with other people strengthens and builds up our faith. Sharing the hope we have in Jesus with others helps us stay rooted and grounded in the reality that Jesus Christ is our hope!
“All the horns of the wicked I will cut off, But the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.” Vs 10
The world is full of evil and injustice. When we take vengeance into our own hands we make matters worse. Jesus Christ is the hope and promise of a world where justice and righteousness will prevail. I am thankful for that reality!
I was broken when I started writing these messages. I did not wait for a sign from God. I did not wait for my finances to improve. I did not wait for my life to become a model of order and perfection. I stepped out in faith. I trusted the object of my faith because He is faithful!
Have you been transformed by the reality of God’s love? Do you find hope in Jesus to keep moving forward through dark times? Give thanks to the God of reality. Share the wondrous works Jesus does in your life with people who need hope.
Evil people will stand before Jesus in judgment. People who love Him today will bask in the light of His love throughout eternity. Will you stand before the Lord in judgment or worship at His feet in eternity?
Be thankful that Jesus gives you the freedom to choose where you will spend eternity. Be thankful that Jesus give you the freedom to choose who you will spend eternity with. Be thankful Jesus gives you the freedom to choose what you will spend eternity doing.
Be thankful that Jesus gives you the freedom strength and wisdom to choose wisely!
