Inherit Peace…

No Comments

John 14:27 “PEACE I leave with you; My [own] PEACE I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” [AMP]

This is an exceptional verse to ponder; it is very strong in our spirit for you this week.

Jesus is saying that He is leaving PEACE with us. Not just any PEACE though but “His peace”. This is not PEACE because of your financial security or through a victory in war; it is the PEACE that comes from Jesus alone.

Now, not only is He leaving PEACE, not only is He giving PEACE, He is also bequeathing it to us. This means it is a legacy to us when He died. Jesus did die and He rose again. His peace is now our PEACE. His PEACE has been left, given and bequeathed to both you and me.

The PEACE of Jesus is given in a different way to how the world gives things. Whatever the world gives it can take away. The PEACE that Jesus gives cannot be taken away by anyone or anything. This is why Jesus can say, “stop allowing yourself to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourself to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled”. These will rob us of our peace so Jesus says do not allow or permit them in our lives.

The PEACE from Jesus is our inheritance. He gave His life so we can have PEACE, it is yours, walk in it from this day on!!!

The Getting of Wisdom…

No Comments

Ecclesiastes 2:26 “For to the person who pleases Him God gives WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND JOY; but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and heaping up, that he may give to one who pleases God…” [AMP]

WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND JOY should be a part of our lives. They are a signposts to recognize that we are pleasing God. As we obediently pursue Him, study His Word, pray and seek his face He says that He will give to us WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND JOY. These are beautiful belongings to have in our life.

The book of Proverbs speaks about these three essentials:

Proverbs 4:7 WISDOM is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom…

Proverbs 24:5 A wise man is strong; yea, a man of KNOWLEDGE increases strength.

Proverbs 15:23 A man hath JOY by the answer of his mouth…

WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND JOY are not earned, bartered or traded by God. He gives each to individuals that please Him. As an obedient believer the first part of this verse speaks to us. The second part speaks to sinners [ones who do not please God] and their lot in life. The sinner has a much harder life. He will always be gathering, heaping up and struggling in the natural. Our promise here is that God gives all that is gathered and heaped up by sinners to one who pleases Him.

Our future can be guaranteed. We have WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND JOY available to us plus what is being gathered and heaped up elsewhere is coming to us. It is going to find it’s way to us when we please God.

Take the Limits Off…

Philippians 3:8 “Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the INFINITE VALUE of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ” [NLT]

It doesn’t matter what we attempt, what we achieve or what we fail in. All these efforts become nothing when compared to the INFINITE VALUE of knowing Christ Jesus as Lord. He is the anointed one and He carries the anointing. This anointing breaks every oppression that would try to hold us. So wherever Jesus is made Lord, nothing else can rise up and seize His position of authority – absolutely nothing!!

We love these beautiful words written by Helen Lemmel “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in his wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace” In our lives we continually need to reset our focus towards Christ. We must make adjustment and insure our gaze is on Jesus and not on the things of the world. When we do this our life is consumed by His glory & His grace.

So, what has your eye today? Is it more important than Christ? Are you looking at circumstances, needs or situations? Is it your bank balance, unemployment or a health problem? No matter what it is… make Jesus your focus from this day on.

Nothing good can ever be lost when we have Jesus. Everything becomes rubbish in comparison. The Knowledge of Christ’s is of INFINITE VALUE to you & me.

A Thousand Times Many More…

No Comments

Duet 1:11 The LORD God of your fathers make you A THOUSAND TIMES so MANY more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!” [KJV]

This is a favorite verse from the bible. It gives such a strong and powerful promise of our future and our hope. The Lord (our God) promises here to make us A THOUSAND TIMES more than we are already. God promises that He will increase us above and beyond what we are able to do through our natural efforts. His promise is to make us A THOUSAND TIMES more than what we have personally achieved.

He’s not saying that we will make ourselves a thousand times more, instead He promises to add His ‘super efforts’ onto our ‘natural efforts’ and bring forth this ‘supernatural occurrence’ in our lives. He put’s His Super on our natural & we become Supernatural in Him!

Now, this verse also tells us that it’s not just a “1000 times more” but it’s a “1000 times MANY more” – this means his increase on top of our increase. Firstly through our natural efforts we can come to a place of increase in our lives. God can take the “MANY” that we’ve gathered and multiply it A THOUSAND TIMES more. This increase is on top of what we had originally produced.

WOW!!! That is a huge boost and that is what is heading right for us… so GET READY!!!

God wants us to know there’s so much more increase coming for us than we can dream!!! This promise is for every arena of our lives spirit, soul & body. It applies to revelation as well as prosperity and to healing as well as relationships.

So our prayer, our belief & our agreement with you is that A THOUSAND TIMES so MANY more than what you’ve had in the past and present is multiplying for you, your family and your future!!!
