    The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn't darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will...

    Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness Luke 4:1 WEB.I would not be here if I had not first been there. So many times in our life, we can look back and say those words. Where we were when we met our spouse, and how narrow a time frame t...

Carry the Cross

  • He called the multitude to himself with his disciples and said to them, 'Whoever wants to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it; and whoever will lose his life for my sake and the sake of the Good News will save it. Mark 8:34 WEB.

    If you follow Jesus one day at a time, no power on Earth can stop you from fulfilling your destiny, except you. Our Heavenly Father is mightier than all. He created the Universe, the Earth, as well as the stars. He also made us. He is not called 'The Almighty' for nothing (El Shaddai Job 11:7). No one can take us out of His hand (John 10:28). No one.

    It is when we choose our own path that we get into trouble. We sometimes follow the 'I did it my way' path. Like Eve, we follow the lust of our flesh: 'I know that He said not to, but I want it. I really want it!' Sometimes our own traditions render the word of God void in our life (Mark 7:13).

    Taking up your cross and following Jesus every day is not an easy task (Luke 9:23). That is why Paul wrote, 'I die daily' (1Corinthians 15:31). For all day long, we have to make small course corrections. Once the mind slips into the gutter, our body eventually follows, and we get slimed.

    'But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one other, that you may not do the things that you desire' (Galatians 5:16-17).

    Thank God there is hope, for His Spirit is there to help and guide us. Nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:39). Make God a part of your daily life by asking Him to come and help you today.

    When facing something difficult, stop and pray about it for a moment. You may be surprised at the results. When you fall, get back up. Take up your cross daily and be on guard against the wiles of the devil. Trust in the Lord and do not fear the enemy, for we are safe in the Father's hand.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your open door and Your welcoming arms. Please strengthen me and help me to see the world through Your eyes. Guide me into all that You have for me. Share Your thoughts with me today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
