Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio

Giving is about Attitude
“Amaziah did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight, but not whole-heartedly.”   2Ch 25:2 NLT

Today’s Insight

6 days away to Christmas and I believe Christmas is about giving because God is the one Who first gave His Son Jesus Christ. The Bible says while we were still sinners Jesus died for us in order to pay the penalty of our sins and this is Good News somebody paid the price instead us will pay the price and God’s purpose is to save us from eternal destruction and to receive eternal life.

Let’s talk about King Amaziah did all the right things, but he wasn’t “wholehearted” about it. You can do the right thing and still not be blessed. Why? Because you did it with the wrong attitude. Take, for example, the subject of giving. The apostle Paul writes: “I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you will give. That will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting. God loves it when the giver delights in the giving. God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it, ‘He throws caution to the winds, giving to the needy in reckless abandon. His right-living, right-giving ways never run out, never wear out.’ This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing…great praise to God” (2Co 9:6-11 TM). Note two things:

(1) Your level of giving determines the level at which you receive.

(2) Your attitude in giving determines your abundance in receiving.

Application

So when you “make up your…mind what you will give,” consider God’s goodness to you, decide what you should give, and do it with a heart of joy. Giving It’s all about attitude!

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word Today.  Lord thank you for giving me the gift of giving. Lord thank you that you put into my heart to always give generously because You are our model in the first place. Lord when you were on earth you first gave yourself to us as a ransom for many that many will be saved. Lord teaches us to be generous giver always on whatever circumstances or situation we are now put into our heart to consider others before ourselves so that they will see You through us that you are a definite giver and mindful in our needs  for your glory In Jesus’ Name. Amen!

Prayer for Salvation

Lord I admit I am a sinner I repent of all my sins and I receive you into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior, In Jesus Name! Amen. If you mean that prayer above from the bottom of your heart you are now saved. It is God’s Word promise in John 3:16 that if you trust His Son Jesus you will not die but you will have Eternal Life. Welcome to the family of God. In order for you to grow in your faith with God please do these consistently starting today; 1. Pray always 2. Read your Bible Daily 3. Attend Church Services Regularly 4. Attend Prayer Meeting, Bible Study, Church Seminars and make God first place in your life with your talents and finances 5. Lastly, witness Jesus to others that they may receive Eternal Life also.

Great Things Happen for Those Who Believes (Part-5)

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio

Great Things Happen for Those Who Believes (Part-5)
“Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other.”Neh 4:17 NIV

Today’s Insight

Do you know how Nehemiah’s team rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem? With a sword in one hand and a trowel in the other. Why is that significant? Because even though God gives you the plan, chances are you’ll have to fight for it. Not everyone wants you to succeed. In fact, some will do everything they can to stop you. That’s when you must constantly remind yourself that God gave you the plan, that He’s on your side, and that if you’re willing to persevere you’ll win. God guarantees it! Listen to what Nehemiah’s enemies said about him: “It is reported…you are about to become their king and have even appointed prophets to make this proclamation about you in Jerusalem: ‘There is a king in Judah!’ Now this report will get back to the king” (Ne 6:6-7 NIV). Nehemiah had to overcome threats and intimidation. He wrote: “They were scheming to harm me; so I sent messengers to them with this reply: ‘I’m carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it to go down to you?’” (Neh 6:2-3 NIV). Every minute devoted to your critics is time stolen from your God-given assignment.

The seventh lesson we learn is:

Don’t step down to their level! It’s not what your enemies say that matters, it’s what you say to yourself when your enemies get through talking. “[Nehemiah] answered them by saying, ‘The God of heaven will give us success…but as for you, you will have no share in Jerusalem or any claim…to it’” (Ne 2:20 NIV). Now that’s the winning attitude!

Application

The question to ask for today is will you give up on God's plan to what you started or will you continue His plan? knowing that God is in our side not only he was in our side yesterday or today but all the time up to eternity he is watching us and supporting us for whatever resources we need so that the plan that He put in our heart will be completed. So don’t give up against the  opposition! As the Bible says in Isaiah 59:19… So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention]…When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word Today.  Lord empowers me stand strong in order to protect the plan that you put in my heart. Lord I ask you to continue to give me strength and wisdom in all my undertakings with your plan that I would be successful and carry it up to finish line. Lord I believe that You are in my side protecting me against the enemy who is trying to stop me not to forward your plan into my life but you oh Lord I believe that you are the one who go always with me as I carry your plan and as I serve you for your glory In Jesus’ Name. Amen!

Prayer for Salvation

Lord I admit I am a sinner I repent of all my sins and I receive you into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior, In Jesus Name! Amen. If you mean that prayer above from the bottom of your heart you are now saved. It is God’s Word promise in John 3:16 that if you trust His Son Jesus you will not die but you will have Eternal Life. Welcome to the family of God. In order for you to grow in your faith with God please do these consistently starting today; 1. Pray always 2. Read your Bible Daily 3.

Great Things Happen for Those Who Believes (Part-4)

Wednesday, 17 December 2014

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio


Great Things Happen for Those Who Believes (Part-4)
“O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant.”   Ne 1:11 NIV

Today’s Insight

The sixth lesson we learn is:

You must ask God for the plan. Why? Because the only plan He will bless is the one He gives you. Every good idea isn’t necessarily a God-idea. The Bible says, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Pr 19:21 NIV). How will you know your plan lines up with God’s plan, especially when you encounter obstacles and opposition?

In two ways: 

(1) A fire will burn within you. Jeremiah said, “His word is in my heart like a fire…shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot” (Jer 20:9 NIV). When God places a burning desire within you, He will enable you to rise above the adverse circumstances that surround you. You’ll find yourself drawn, driven, directed, and dedicated. You may not always be able to explain it to others, but you’ll “know in your knower” that you are in the will of God.

(2) God will show you the right path to take. “Along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them” (Isa 42:16 NIV).

Application

Note the words “unfamiliar paths…darkness…rough places,” but don’t be thrown or discouraged by them. Instead, expect them! David said, “The Lord will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever” (Ps 138:8 NLT). And David’s God is your God—He hasn't changed! 

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word Today.  Lord teaches me to follow your plan and not my plan because I believe if I follow your plan you will give me a lot of resources and direct my path straight without confusions. Lord keeps the fire in my heart and burning desire by serving you in love and submits my life to you faithfully and empowers me to obey your Word always. Lord I believe that you will work out your plans in my life because you will be the one to lead me and your people victoriously for your glory In Jesus’ Name. Amen!

Prayer for Salvation

Lord I admit I am a sinner I repent of all my sins and I receive you into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior, In Jesus Name! Amen. If you mean that prayer above from the bottom of your heart you are now saved. It is God’s Word promise in John 3:16 that if you trust His Son Jesus you will not die but you will have Eternal Life. Welcome to the family of God. In order for you to grow in your faith with God please do these consistently starting today; 1. Pray always 2. Read your Bible Daily 3.
