Daily word for 10 March 2016 – Galatians 5:16-18

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Galatians 5:16-18 (NIV):

16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatevera you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

These verses are very important as it shows that the more we walk by (and are guided by) the Holy spirit, the less we are desiring to follow the flesh. When you will feel desires of the flesh to become to much, then it is important to bring it before God and ask Him (through the Holy Spirit) to take that desire away. And He will!

Amen!

Daily word for 15 February 2016 – 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 15 February 2016 – 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6 (NIV):

4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.

As Christians we are different than non-believers. In this world we are taught to life in darkness, while God wants us to life in the light. To life in Gods presence!

You will see that the closer you are to God, the more happy you will be, because God does not want us to feel sober or depressed. Let your happiness come from God and it will change your way of living!

Amen!

Daily word for 12 February 2016 – Ephesians 1:3-4

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Ephesians 1:3-4 (NIV):

Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love

Amen! What a powerful praise this is. Our lifes our not just coincidence as God already choose us before we were born, even before earth was created. God intended in His plan for you to be here at this moment in time. Follow Gods guidance to grow into His plan for your life. Also know that God has blessed you and will continue to bless you!

Amen!

Daily word for 9 February 2016 – Philippians 3:20-21

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Philippians 3:20-201 (NIV):

20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

Although we are living on earth, we should never consider us citizen of this world, but know that we are blessed to be citizens from heaven. For this reasons God transforms our bodies from earthly bodies to be like His glorious body. We cannot transform ourselves, but need the Holy Spirit to grow more and more towards God.

God bless you all!

Daily word for 3 February 2016 -Hebrews 10:19-22

Daily word for 3 February 2016 – Hebrews 10:19-22

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Hebrews 10:19-22 (NIV):

A Call to Persevere in Faith

19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

What a beautiful verses! If we draw near to God and have a sincere heart and have full faith then we will see how God works blessings in our life. Use everyday as a way to fully grow closer to God. The most important in our relationship with God is to have full faith in Him. Also pray every day to make sure that your heart is and stays sincere.

Amen!

Daily word 30 March 2015 – Romans 5:14-15

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 30 March 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Romans 5:14-15, which says:

14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam,1 who was a pattern of the one to come.2 15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man,3 how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ,4 overflow to the many!

When Jesus died at the cross for the sins of all humans, it also ended the reign of death on earth. Sin may have come into the world by one man, but it was an even greater man (Jesus) that defeated it and brought us grace!

Daily word 29 March 2015 – Isaiah 46:9-10

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 29 March 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Isaiah 46:9-10, which says:

9 Remember the former things,1 those of long ago;2 I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.3 10 I make known the end from the beginning,4 from ancient times,5 what is still to come.6 I say: My purpose will stand,7 and I will do all that I please.

Know that God is unique and that no is the same or can even measure up to Him. Also when you want to be encouraged in your faith about God, just look back in the Bible, but also in your own life all that God has done. God has a plan for your life and He will carry it out, but you also have to allow Him to work in and through you.

Daily word 28 March 2015 – Colossians 3:12-14

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 28 March 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Colossians 3:12-14, which says:

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves1 with compassion, kindness, humility,2 gentleness and patience.3 13 Bear with each other4 and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.5 14 And over all these virtues put on love,6 which binds them all together in perfect unity.7

As a Christian it is very important to love. When you act out of love, then your action will be a lot different then others will, because you have decided to honor God by not letting negative emotions control you. God wants us to be different from the worldly ways, by being compassionate, kind, humble, gentle and patient. You will see that by having these character trades that it is not only a blessing to your own life, but also to others.

Daily word 27 March 2015 – Mark 16:17-18

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 27 March 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Mark 16:17-18, which says:

17 And these signs1 will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons;2 they will speak in new tongues;3 18 they will pick up snakes4 with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on5 sick people, and they will get well.”

These verses should indeed encourage us to grow more and more in faith. As long as we tend to think according to the rules of this world, then we will stay limited in what we are able to do as Christians. As soon as we put all our trust on God, then we can rest on the fact that God is almighty and nothing is impossible for Him … also for us to do miracles in His name.

I pray to God that everyday we will grow more and more closer to God and also to be able to do these works in His name.

Have a beautiful and very blessed weekend!

God bless!

Daily word 26 March 2015 – Psalm 130:3-4

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 26 March 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Psalm 140:3-4, which says:

3 If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand?1 4 But with you there is forgiveness;2 therefore you are feared.3

These verses shows how much God loves us. God has every right to keep a record of all our sins, but because of His endless love for us, He decides not to do so! Where we on earth have the tendency to also remind the bad things of each other and even to hold it against that person, God decides not to do so.

I am so thankful to God that His forgiveness is upon us, so we can rest on the assurance that He not only loves us, but that He is more then willing not to hold our past sins against us, when we repent them to Him and grow closer to Him.

Amen!
