Our website is back up

In reference to a previous post on June 10, 2017—> https://devotionalfortheday.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/our-website-has-been-removed-from-the-internet/

Our harassers pulled our website down for several days on a false copyright claim for which our host Godaddy.com was NEVER ABLE TO SUPPLY ANY PROOF OF! We have filed complaints with the BBB and others against the host Godaddy but they keep professing lies and refusing to refund money for the term duration and that which was paid for the year 2018. Someone at Godaddy has been bought off by our harassers to take down our website.

We never expected to place our website back up but the Lord worked it all out to our benefit. We have transferred to a different host. We are working to make repairs to the webpages. In the meantime pages, tables, videos may not appear correctly for a while. Please be patient.

Remain as you were.

1 Corinthians 7:20

Yes, each of you should remain as you were when God called you.

The apostle Paul writes that when we come to God and surrender our lives to Him we don’t need to become missionaries and go overseas or to another location in order to serve Him. God is glorified when we serve Him in whatever our occupation may be. Glorify God to the utmost of your power where you are. Fill your life with praises to Him, and if He needs you in another occupation, He will show it you.

Set free from the stifling atmosphere of pleasing others!

Don’t follow the crowd if they aren’t following Christ! Be a life changer and impact other’s lives so they also will pick up their cross daily and follow Christ. The apostle Paul, speaks of his unwillingness to glory in anything but the cross of Jesus. He rejoiced only in things of the Lord, rather than the things of the world. He preached the Gospel and the doctrine of the cross of Christ. He ignored the honors of the world for the knowledge of who he was in Christ. He didn’t get caught up in people pleasing or trying to fit into the molds the world would have him to fit into.

Galatians 6:14
For my part I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, I have been crucified in relation to the world, set free from the stifling atmosphere of pleasing others and fitting into the patterns they dictate.

He said to him, “feed my lambs. “

John 21:15-17

So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these:” Simon Peter said to Him, “Yes, lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.”  ​He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me?”, he said to him yes Lord, you know that I love you. He said to Him, ​”Tend my sheep”. Then He said the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?”  And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things, You know that I love you. Jesus said to him, ” Feed My sheep.”
Our guest speaker at church this weekend taught from this passage. It was Jesus answer to Peter our speaker said in which Jesus showed Peter that his denial of Jesus 3 times was forgiven. Jesus inquired of Peter’s love in front of the others, this suggests that Christ is unwilling to entrust His little ones to one who does not love Him. When, again the Lord asks Peter if Peter loves Him, and asks him to feed His sheep, the Lord indicates that His sheep are very precious to Him and He would give His life for them. Jesus wanted Peter’s true feelings and not just a superficial answer from him. We need to think about how we would answer a question such as this from Jesus.

Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Matthew 4:17 

From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 

This story is something that happened to me. God used me as a messenger in someone’s life. Have you ever had a messenger in your life tell you something that God had revealed to them – sometimes even unknown to them? I have had some in mine and actually the daily verses I send out came from someone who had asked me to email them verses instead of giving them Scripture mints that I gave out every day, I am still sending them 13 years later. The bible tracts that I was carrying in my purse were from a church where we had taken the Youth Group to learn how to do street evangelism. God had an assignment for me using the tracts. The grocery store that I shopped at had a store mgr. that followed me all around the store every time I shopped there. Finally one day I asked him if he thought I was a shop lifter. No – he knew I was a regular customer. The Holy Spirit then prompted me to hand him one of the bible tracts that said the above “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”. His demeanor crumbled and he confessed to me that he had been cheating on his family and thought he could possibly have an illicit relationship with me. He told me that he believed God had sent me to the store to deal with his sin. When the Holy Spirit of God prompts you to do something don’t stop and debate whether or not it is what you are to do – just do it. If God could use me He could use you – as a warrior and soldier in His army to bring light and life into a dying world. Thank you Lord for the opportunity to have served You!!! My prayer is for others to boldly proclaim the Gospel of the living God and be used by Him, however directed. Amen!
