    He told them this parable.

    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. When he was in distress, he begged Yahweh his God, and humbled himse...

My Redeemer Lives

  • But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEB

    Job is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first ten chapters of Genesis. Wealth in this book was still measured in livestock. Yet even then, Job already knew that there was life beyond the natural, and that after his skin was destroyed, that he would see God with his own eyes. When Job went through horrible circumstances, like losing his ten children, all of his wealth, and then his health, he still clung to this hope. Job held tightly to his faith during his darkest hours. Later, it was all restored double and the end of his life, was better than the beginning.

    Know today, that whatever this life hands you, there is something beyond the trouble. This life is only temporary and not the final destination for us. For believers, death is not the end but merely a transition.

    If you cannot get the work load done, it will be OK, just do your best and don't be stressed. When you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, stop a moment and ask for His help. Jesus said that His yoke is easy and His burden is light (Matthew 10:30). What then have we picked up? Jesus said: 'But take heed to yourselves and be on your guard, lest your hearts be overburdened and depressed (weighed down) with the giddiness and headache and nausea of self-indulgence, drunkenness, and worldly worries and cares pertaining to [the business of] this life' (Luke 21:34 AMP).

    So the cares of this world, the business of life, are heavy and can be a headache. Lighten up, look at the big picture, and I mean eternity. What eternal value does this current project have? Live a little, laugh a little, take a moment during the day to tell the Father that you love Him, and do it with a thankful smile. He will still be on the throne whether you meet the deadline or not. Our Redeemer lives.

    Prayer: Father, please bring Your balance to my life. Help me to take it one day at a time and remove this burden from my shoulders. My help comes from the Lord. I have put my trust in God, what can man do to me? Walk with me today Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Beautifully said Pastor Todd. It brought tears to my eyes. I sometimes get overwhelmed with everything going on in my life that I forget that God will never give me more than I can handle. Thank you for the reminder that he and his promises are what matter the most.

Amen Pastor Dion. This I can so relate to. There have been some very dark trials in my life, whether they were mine or a deeply loved member of my family. Yet I found even when my world was crumbling and all I could do was weep, if I started praising God and Jesus, it turned my mood around. No matter how shattered or broken a circumstance as I turned my weeping into praise He filled me with His peace and lifted me like wings of eagles, to soar! As the words to a favorite song of mine. His love never fails, He never gives up, He never walks out on me!

This devotional message lift my spirit up.  I know when life brings it's curve ball it vey hard to laugh but it through our struggle we really need to live a little,  laugh a little.
