Word of the day: 37 Then Jesus uttered another loud cry and breathed his last. 38 And the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. 39 When the Roman officer who stood facing him saw how he had died, he exclaimed, “This man truly was the Son of God!” Mark 15:37-39 NLT

There are barriers between people that are non-believers and Jesus. That is because most people do not believe what Jesus can do. Non-believers look at the work of Jesus as miracles but do not want to consider that Jesus is the reason for a lot of miracles. It is called blessings for those that do not believe. And blessings are something we don’t deserve based on our behavior, but still, receive unconditional love. The Roman officer faced him and saw how he died; he said that he is the true Son of God. Does it take that long to realize that? Are you waiting for a miracle to happen for you to understand that Jesus is the person that controls everything? Believe now and not later that he is the answer to everything.
Father, thank you for your love. Without you, losing is an understatement without your love. Please help us to point people to you before it is too late. You are the answer to everything. Thank you for our fellowship. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

Remember Bad Times

April 1, 2020

Word of the day: 2 Remember how the Lord your God led you in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. Deuteronomy 8:2 NIV

We can quickly reflect on bad situations and then wonder if it could have been something positive. Today, take time to think of those negative situations. What do you believe God is telling you now based on those negative situations? Doing this can help you be humbled and allow yourself wisdom for similar problems in the future. There is nothing wrong with taking your wicked problems and reflecting off them. Think about sports teams or entrepreneurs. When does a sports player want to get better, besides building themselves up better physically, what another way to do they improve? They look at bad games to improve on. Entrepreneurs are the same way; they reflect on their bad decisions and build on them. In our lives, we should take time to reflect and see what God is telling us about these situations we can grow.

Father, thank you for today. I pray for our past situations that we can reflect and listen to them. I pray for wisdom and love. Thank you for our fellowship. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
