GOD KNOWS YOUR FUTURE, HAVE FAITH ON HIM

Saturday, 29 March 2014

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio


 GOD KNOWS YOUR FUTURE, HAVE FAITH ON HIM

‘…God…calls those things which do not exist as though they did.’ Romans 4:17NKJV

Today’s Insight

 You must believe what God says about you, over what everyone else says! Stop listening to those who claim you’ll never amount to anything. You might’ve had a bad childhood, or a failed marriage or career. ‘…Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before [you]‘ (Philippians 3:13 KJV). The Bible doesn’t say that we call those things which are not as though they are. Nor does it say others have the power to speak things which are not as though they are over your life. No, it is God, through His Word, Who speaks into existence His will for your life. And you should be glad about that. You wouldn’t want anybody else to have power to determine your destiny.

Our responsibility is to line up our will with God’s will. When we do, He empowers us to accomplish what normally would be humanly impossible. The Bible says, ‘…The just shall live by faith’ (Romans 1:17 KJV). Your faith is more important than your performance. Yes, when God decrees something, we get to participate in it. But in every case, it’s God who performs it. The thing you’re worried about performing, God says will be done through His power. Will you experience delays and disappointments? Yes, but ultimately you won’t be denied, for God has decreed it.

You say, ‘But what about all my unanswered questions or all the loose ends that need to be tied up?’ It’s ‘a done deal’ as far as God’s concerned. ‘All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose’ (Romans 8:28 NKJV). Relax; God is working it out for you.

Application:  Relax; God is working it out for you.


Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word today. Lord thank you for orchestrating my future. I know Lord that you are omniscient God who knows all our future. Thank you for teaching me to trust on you even the surroundings are not in favor of me but you have a special favor to me. Lord thank for your kindness and mercy towards me and I know that I am not qualified to inherit the eternal life and all heavenly things but you gave it all Lord when you offered your life to us as your Word says Lord that you died for us while we were sinners so that who we have no hope can now have hope to enter heaven because you gave it all to  us when we received your Son Jesus as our Lord and personal Savior as you have said Lord in your Word in John 1:12 Those who received Him (Jesus) You gave the right for us to become your children. Lord thank your for this great privilege because we knew that our future is brighter than today Lord thank you for choosing me as your Child and allow me to walk according to your will 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 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 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.

YOUR DECISIONS TODAY AFFECTS YOUR FUTURE

Thursday, 27 March 2014

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio


YOUR DECISIONS TODAY AFFECTS YOUR FUTURE

“….choose for yourselves today whom you will serve?...but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” - Joshua 24:15 (NASB)


Today’s Insight

What you are today was determined by the decisions you made yesterday. If you want to change your future, learn how to make better decisions today.

Here are a few principles to guide you:

1.   Never make a permanent decision about a temporary situation. When the smoke clears, you will regret.
2.   Never let your emotions blind you reason. Weight things prayerfully, and base your decisions on mature expertise.
3.  Surround yourself with wise people and draw on their gifts, without intimidated by their expertise as the Bible saysWithout consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed” Proverbs 15:22 (NASB).  
4.  Take time to consider all options. What looks good today may not look so good tomorrow.
5.  You can’t fight successfully on every front, so choose your battles carefully. Don’t go into a battle where there are no spoils.
6.   Get all facts; conjecture leads to crisis.
7.  Consider the consequences of each option, and ask yourself, Am I ready to handle them right now?
8.  Make sure your expectations don’t exceed your potential and resources.
9.  Time is your most limited and valuable resources.  Don’t waste it.
10.   Allow yourself a 10 percent risk of being wrong, a 50 percent likelihood of betrayal, and a 100 percent to survive it all.

Application:  So today, Whom will you choose to serve?


Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word today. Lord thank you for showing your guidelines to us on how we choose to make decision for we believe Lord that If we make mistakes in our decisions Lord sometimes this will cause us a very long period of time to repair. Lord today my decision is based on the solid rock which is your Word and  likewise my decision is to serve and not to waste my time in serving this world and by doing any vices that could not benefit me in the future. Lord today I choose to serve you with all my heart and strength even there is difficulty ahead of me for I believe you will go with me and support me all the way to finish line. Lord my decisions are to serve you and to be used as an instrument to change people lives 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 Amen. If you mean that prayer above from the bottom of your heart you are now saved.

WHEN GOD CALLS YOU, YOU MUST STEP FORWARD

Wednesday, 26 March 2014

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio


 WHEN GOD CALLS YOU, YOU MUST STEP FORWARD

 ‘… Let us keep in step with the Spirit’ Galatians 5:25 NIV

 

Today’s Insight

You know ‘Singing in the Rain’, the musical with the umbrella twirling, puddle splashing routine Gene Kelly bit? Effortless and gliding with grace, you’d never guess Kelly was actually down with flu when he filmed it. You’d never guess the rain was shrinking his costume. Despite these odds, Gene Kelly danced into celluloid history because of the years of practice he’d put in. He instinctively knew the steps.

It’s the same with our ‘routine’ with God. Every day is an opportunity to practice going toe-to-toe with Him, learning His guidance. Galatians 5:25 tells us to ‘keep in step with the Spirit.’ Put in the practice now. Spiritual guidance is learned – one step at a time. You might dream of making an impact in an overseas mission trip; but it’s worth remembering that God can equally move you to do ‘mission’ in your own town. In fact, He probably will. He has a big heart for it, because it boils down to simply living in God’s ways, wherever you are – nothing glamorous, just living for Him and for others.

So, how can we learn God’s ‘steps’? Well, the Bible is ‘… a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path’ (Psalm 119:105 NLT). When we draw Godly inspiration from it, it’ll change our lives.

Application:  Don’t wait for opportunities to find you. Read your Bible and pray for God to give you an unmistakable passion for something He cares for.


Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word today. Lord thank you for calling me to be an instrument of your blessings to others. Lord empowers me to move and step forward whenever you call me. Lord give me a consistent spirit to serve you better and continually without making excuse or complain but being faithful in every assignment or ministry that you want me to accomplish and to teach others too so that I may equip them for the work of service and ready to train others also 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 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.

YOU ARE A CHILD AND WONDERFUL CREATION BY GOD (PART-3)

Tuesday, 25 March 2014

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio


YOU ARE A CHILD AND WONDERFUL CREATION BY GOD (PART-3)
‘… Therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s’ 1 Corinthians 6:20 KJV

 Today’s Insight


The third claim that God has on you is a word you might not be familiar with: ‘consecrate’. This means to be ‘set apart’. Being declared different, for and by God. Does this mean we need to be perfect? No, you can’t make yourself perfect, only God can and will do that someday (in Heaven).

The step we have to take is the willingness to be consecrated: God is looking for people that are up for it. What does being ‘set apart’ look like? One example could be: ‘My parents want me to go to Bible College and be a minister.’ Well, there’s good news and bad. The good news is that Bible College can deepen your devotion to Christ and give you insights into His Word. The bad news is that your parents can’t ‘call’; you; only God can! ‘… no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God…’ (Hebrews 5:4 NKJ).

So, ‘How do I know where I’m meant to be?’ Basically, when God calls you, you’ll know. That nervous excitement when you know you really should join that mission? Or that sense of righteous anger that drives you to give time and/or money to a specific cause? Whatever the calling, big or small, He will open the doors, make the connections, and provide the resources. All He asks of you is that you ‘consecrated’ yourself to doing His will.

Application:  As you’re praying today, rededicate your whole life back to God. It is now in the best hands.

Parallel verses: Hosea 11-14, Matt 23:1-14, Ps 13, Pro 8:14-16

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word today. Lord thank you for calling me even I am not qualified but you did not choose me only but you qualify me Lord to serve you. Lord let my life a dedicated one and be set a part in you to serve in your kingdom so that this life will be a blessing to others. Lord I am not perfect but Lord empowers me to walk blameless and holy that I may serve you in the ministry that you called me 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 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.

YOU ARE A CHILD AND WONDERFUL CREATION BY GOD (PART-2)

Monday, 24 March 2014

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio
 YOU ARE A CHILD AND WONDERFUL CREATION BY GOD (PART-2)
‘… you were bought at a price…’ 1 Corinthians 6:20 NIV

 

Today’s Insight

Here’s the second claim that God has on you. Today, we’re talking about ‘Calvary’, where Jesus was crucified.

There’s a clever analogy about a father and son. The father is a judge and his son finds himself on trial in court, guilty as charged. The father knows his son could never afford to pay. His heart breaks for him. But he’s also a judge with a job to do – he can’t just turn a blind eye to the law for the sake of his guilty son. What does the judge do?…

When Christ hung beaten and bloodied at Calvary, like a man guilty in the dock, God the Judge tore off His robes and cried, ‘Debt paid!’ ‘The Lord has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west’ (Psalm 103:12 NLT). Justice done. Debt paid.

The value of something is determined by the price a buyer is willing to pay for it. At Calvary, God was shouting at us, at me, at you – ‘This is how much I love and value you!’ Your Creator became your Redeemer. Mankind doesn’t know what it’s here for or understand itself at all, until it is confronted with this God. Calvary means that you have value because you belong to God, not because He wanted any sort of servant, but because He wanted you to have the truest freedom.

Application:  Thank God today that your debt of sin has been paid in full. Start to live in the true freedom purchased for you.

Parallel verses: Gal 5:22, Isa 61, Heb 12:2, Jas 1:2-3

 Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word today. Lord thank you for looking me a price possession that cause your Son our Lord Jesus to die and sacrifice himself so that he could pay our debt which supposed to put on us but it was put on him and thank you Lord Jesus because you shout “tetelestie” Greek word use in commerce fully paid. Lord thank you for giving your life to us and die so that we can live but you o Lord is most powerful but on the third day you rise again showing to us that we can resurrect someday when you return on earth for a second coming and final judgment. Lord thank you for your unconditional love for us indeed we are your child and you are our Father. Lord empowers us to act like a child of yours 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 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.

YOU ARE A CHILD AND WONDERFUL CREATION BY GOD (PART-1)

Sunday, 23 March 2014

Word of Hope for Today by Bro. Rolly Custodio


 YOU ARE A CHILD AND WONDERFUL CREATION BY GOD (PART-1)

 ‘You are not your own’ 1 Corinthians 6:19 NKJ

Today’s Insight

Two people rock up outside a house. One says ‘This is my house’. The other replies ‘How come?’ The first one says ‘For three reasons. I built it. I paid for it. I live in it.’ For the next three days, we’re looking at three claims God has on your life.

The first claim: Creation (‘I built it’), We usually think of this from the point of view that, if God made you, it means you’re designed, you’re hand-crafted, into a beautiful, gifted, valuable child of His. That’s right, but today we’re looking at it from a different angle… If God made you, that means you belong to Him. So…?

God cares for you not just because He took a shine to you, but because He made the shine that is you. You belong to Him, in a way that should both empower you, and also make you stop and think ‘What am I doing for Him?’ Even before we look at Jesus’ sacrifice for you (tune in tomorrow), the very fact that He created you means that ‘you are not your own… therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s’ (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NKJ).

Don’t get us wrong, this is no guilt-trip. We’re saying: if God made you, and God called you His, then He knows best what you’re for. He knows the plans, the purposes and the abilities that He gave to you. He knows the problems that only you can solve. If you know that you belong to God, you have status, and you have purpose.

Application:  What difference does knowing that ‘you are not your own’ make to the way you will act today? Think about it as you go about your day. See what happens in your interactions?


Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word today. Lord thank you for creating me and make me as your Child and heir of the whole universe. Lord thank you for your Word as you have said in John 1:12, those who received Him he gave the right to become children of God of born of the flesh but of your Spirit Lord. Thank you that I am wonderful master piece and you created for a purpose in this world and not just occupy some space here but you have an assignment to me Lord that no one can do but me only Lord. Lord for going with me even through difficulties and trials you are with me Lord because I am your child. Lord thank you for this privilege for being a member of God’s family and allow me to walk Lord worthy of your calling 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 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.
