Be strong and courageous

It was the year 1406 B.C. Moses just died and the job of taking the people of God into the Promised Land was handed to Joshua. He was just given the task of keeping millions of Hebrews in line as their leader.

What a daunting job to be faced with. Sometimes when we are faced with trials, no matter how big or small, we can forget that God is actually the one in charge, not us. If He has placed a mountain before you, He will show you how to climb it. We need to remember that it is His work we are doing, for His glory, and He wants us to approach each trial in faith.

God said something to Joshua that is vital for us to learn. In Joshua 1: 6, God says: “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them.” Notice God said, “You will lead these people.” (When God has something for us to do, He will make sure it gets done. Even if God tells us to do something that seems impossible, know that it is already as good as done.)

In Joshua 1: 9, God says, “Have I not commanded you? Be ...

Replacing old habits

When we come to know Jesus we go through an amazing process. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone and the new has come!” This is so very true; when we receive Christ, we become washed clean of our past sins, and as new clean vessels the Holy Spirit is able to come in and take up residence in our now clean bodies.

A lot of the old things we struggled with are dealt with by God; however we still have old habits to take control of.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 3:18, that we are being transformed into the likeness of Jesus, with ever increasing glory. So we are “being transformed.”

We are in the process of changing into what God has designed us to be. And what’s awesome is, the Holy Spirit is helping us through our transformation. He guides our steps, He counsels us in how to act, and He convicts us when we do or say things that would hurt God.

The Holy Spirit also brings fruit in with Him, fruit designed to change us as it grows ...

Does God have a purpose for you?

You have two choices in life

As we live here on earth we have the choice to serve the things of this world, which are temporary, or serve God. Interesting choices! One we can see around us every day, the other we can’t see at all.

So why would we choose to serve someone we can’t see? One reason is history, what God has done from creation to today. The thousands of things He said, that have all come true. Another reason is the testimonies of other believers. The things God has done in people’s lives throughout the generations.

But the most powerful thing is what He has done in, and for, each of us individually. He frees us, changes us, heals and blesses us. When we commit our lives to God through Jesus Christ all sorts of amazing things happen; things here on the earth, and things in heaven.

I was recently blessed to be with someone at the end of his life; he prayed with me to ...
