    Proverbs 21:1-3; 5

    1. The King's heart is in the hand of the Lord, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.

    2. Everyday of a man is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the hearts.

    3. To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice

    5. The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want

Be Thankful

Welcome.

This past week we celebrated the Thanksgiving Holiday and spent time reflecting on all that we have to be thankful for. Just to name a few things we should be thankful for is our personal relationship with Jesus, Calvary, employment, our family and friends. When we turn our attention to our blessings everything else seems to improve. As we go into the days ahead, lets continue to remember how blessed we are and continue to be thankful unto God for all he has done.

Live and be a blessing!

There’s An App For That!

Welcome.

If you desire to be successful but are hindered by the fear of failure, well there is an app for that. Actually, it’s the application of the Word of God.

2 Peter 1-8, 10 (ISV) …make every effort to supplement your faith with moral character, your moral character with knowledge, your knowledge with self-control, your self-control with endurance, your endurance with godliness, your godliness with brotherly kindness, and your brotherly kindness with love. For if you possess these qualities, and if they continue to increase among you, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in attaining a full knowledge of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah. So then, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election certain, for if you keep on doing this you will never fail.
Live and be a blessing!

Free Indeed

Welcome.

It is great to be a citizen in a country where you are free. In America we salute all of our Veterans who served our county so that we would continue to enjoy our liberties.

John 8:36 says If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

In Christ Jesus we are truly free. We are free from our past sins (I John 1:9), free from present attacks from the enemy (Romans 8:1), and free from future fears (Philippians 4:6).

I thank God for freedom.
Live and be a blessing!

My Life In His Hands

Welcome.

Have you ever done or said anything foolish or heard someone call another person a fool? The Bible says in Psalm 14:1 “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”

Jesus told a parable about a man who was called a fool by God (Luke 12:16-21). What made him foolish is not the fact that he built bigger barns to store his abundant harvest (vv.16-18). It would have been more foolish of him to leave it out in the fields where inclement weather would spoil it. Nor was he foolish because of his thought that this unexpected windfall was enough to last him a long time (v.19). After all, we are urged to follow the example of the ant in “storing up” the harvest (Prov. 6:6-8). What made the man foolish? He left God out of the picture. He was called a fool because he failed to realize that his life was in God’s hands. While he was planning carefully for his comfortable life on earth, he failed to plan for eternity and store up treasures in heaven (Matt. 6:20). If you don’t want to end your life as a fool, please include God in your plans for everlasting life.

I Shall Recover All

Welcome.

Believe it or not, Christians do experience trials in their lives. In 1 Samuel 30, David experienced a day of great trials. His enemies had gotten an advantage, his city was burnt down, his family kidnapped, his cattle taken, and his own soldiers were talking of stoning him. What did David do?

He changed his clothes, David called for the Ephod. The Ephod, a priestly breast plate adorned with precious stones reminded David who he was in God. Now David was able to pray and get directions from God to pursue and to recover all. David did what God told him and he did pursue and he did recover all.

Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

Live and be a blessing!

Vive La Difference!!! (Hooray for difference!)

There are many who say, that those who are different, cannot fellowship or attend church together. Also it has been said, that Sunday morning is the most segregated time in America.

I say, it is possible for people of different nationalities, colors, and backgrounds to worship together because, we are doing it here at New Life Apostolic Church. It is our differences and willingness to come together under God that makes us unique and great in him.

On a piano there are many keys, a guitar has different strings, a horn has valves. Each key, string, and valve when played repeatedly by themselves, make an unpleasant sound. When every key, string and valve, are put into harmony, beautiful music comes forth. Where there is diversity, there can be some problems that stem from individuality and differences but, when God is allowed to be the head, then the results are harmony and strength.

God made us different for a reason, so let’s embrace our differences and place our gifts and talents in his hands in order to make the world a better place.

The Thoughts You’re Thinking

Welcome.

Are you thinking the right thoughts? Our thoughts are very important because thoughts can manifest into words, moods, and actions. We have to resist thoughts that we know are unwholesome, unethical and immoral. I say resist, because, we can not prevent all thoughts but, we can make a choice not to entertain them.

Someone once said, you can’t stop a bird from flying over your head but you don’t have to let him build a nest in your hair. We as Christians must have proper thoughts which comes from a spiritually mature mind and a daily application of the word of God.

2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Live and be a blessing!
