Let’s read Matthew 6:25-31

25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

These verses are saying to all of us, DO NOT WORRY, about anything! The more we worry about things in life, the more likely we will get sick from stress, anxiety attacks, panic attacks, heart attacks from anger and frustrations, and depression!. Remember that God the Father knows what we all need in this life. When we worry or try to do everything ourselves, our Father can’t have any room to bless us!

That’s why Father wants us all to rest in Him. When we rest in Him and cast all our care upon Him, we get peace, joy and calmness in our hearts. Stress can cause all kind of sickness and depression. When we Rest in Him, we give all our problems and stress in our life to Christ and He will give us Rest! Look up to the Cross and remember what He have done for us. He have given us all the Blessings that Jesus deserves! So let’s give Jesus all the Praise!

We automatically have an enemy called Satan when we were born into this world. He is the enemy of every person in this world. It doesn't matter if some believes in God or not, Satan hates us because we are made in God's image.

Thank our Father in Heaven that He gave us an Armour to wear! The Bible teaches us that we don't have to cope with our problems, it teaches us how to walk in victory! We have everything in Christ once we accept Him as our Saviour. Ephesians 1:3 says, "Blessed be the God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ." We already have been blessed with EVERYTHING! In Christ, we have eternal life, all the promises of God in teh Bible, the Holy Spirit and we can have all the fruits of the Spirit. The reason why the Devil (Satan) pays extra attention to believers is not only becasue we have everything, it's because we are made in God's image.

Now, let's read the verses on Ephesians 6:10-18 :
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints

The first piece of armour is the Belt of Truth. When we first got saved by accepting Christ our Saviour, our lives changed because we recieved the Truth. We are set free by Christ when He gave us the Truth. Jesus said, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32)

Satan loves to play mind games with all of us. One thing that he doesn't like is when we know the Truth. The more we know the Truth, the more the devil can not play games with our minds. Devil don't like it when we know the Truth because it will set us Free!
Thank you Father for the Belt of Truth! Thank you for the Armour you have given us so that we can stand against the defeated Devil! Becuase Jesus died on the Cross, the Devil was and is still defeated! We will stand tall and have Victory in the Blood of Christ. Amen!

I like to read Psalm 91 every now and then. The very first verse of that book says, "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty". I love it! It's shows me that when I trust in Christ, I am dwelling in the Shadow of the Most High God! I remembered a few months ago, my daughter was struck with a fever and upset stomach, I prayed that pslam 91 and that was right before I took her to the ER. As soon as we came to the ER, she smile and said " I am better daddy!" and that when I knew that Yahweh have blessed my daughter with health. As soon as I came home, she was up and full of laughter and gladness since she didn't feel sick anymore. Jesus paid for our sickness on the cross so that we can be full of health and strength to go out and spread the Word of God. Oh by the way, my daughter's nickname is Lizzy and she's 3 years old. She is full of energy and life!

Father, I thank you for the gift of prayer. I know when I prayed, you heard it. I thank you for your Love and Mercy on my 3 daughters, my wife, my parents, my sister and my friends. With out you Jesus, we would not have the blessings you died for and because you died for us Lord, you have given us all things to embrace and cherish. Thank you Lord for you Love and Grace! In the name of Jesus, and I shout out "AMEN!"

Got up this morning and prayed. I prayed for a great day and full of good health. I know that Christ is the only one that should be in the center of my life. Everyday I remember that God send His Son to died for my sins and I thanked my Father for it. Because of Christ’s finished work, i am able to recieve all the blessings that Christ deserves.

I am looking foward to seeing my oldest child go to school for the very first time. I told her that she will enjoy it and that she should pray before shcool . I wanted to make sure that she have the same blessings that I have for our health, peace and joy. Also I want her to know that she will dwell in the secret place of the Most High! (ps 91:1) and that she will be protected. Our children are very happy because they have Christ involved in their lives. I want to be a kind of father that allows them to establish a relationship with our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is already in us and it reminds us that we are to Rest in Christ and not to worry about anything in life because our Father knows what we all need for today. We should not worry about tomorrow, today or the past because God, the Father, will take care of us!

Father, thank you for all you have done for us and for all the supplies and protections you have given us. Because of Christ’s grace, we are able to Rest in Him. Thank you helping us not to worry about what to eat, drink or wear because we know that in Christ, we have ALL things we need and much more! We praise Jesus name forever and ever, AMEN!

God's Blessings

Don't take wealth as your number one source of happiness. Our true richness is in our heart when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. That free gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
