Sign Sealed and Delivered, “Praise The Lord”

Here I am signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours these words made famous by Stevie Wonder
The question is to whom have you signed, sealed and delivered your soul too? It depends on what you are looking for in life, people do not realize they do have choices either you are looking for peace and joy or division, discord and pain. Sin always has a consequence involved, you will always reap what you sow every time. When you give your heart to Jesus and learn of His truths you acquire peace and joy.
Its sad but in todays world people will sell themselves cheap thinking it will bring them a life full of satisfaction and fulfillment for instance a bottle of whiskey one would give their spouse away, or in order to sustain their drug habit they would prostitute their own children just for the next fix and for lust of the flesh people have killed one another. Instead of allowing ourselves to be signed, sealed, delivered and given over to the devil for nothing but hatred, discord and destruction, why not give yourself over to a more worthy more satisfying fulfillment in life?

Why not give ourselves to one who will satisfy the longing of our souls and give us life in him. Who will freely give His love and grace, to set us free from our bondage, for Jesus told us in His word, “my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Who wouldn’t give their all to a person such as this? Who not only gives you a promise but keeps it and sealed it with His life’s blood. For in the New Testament Jesus sealed it with his very blood as it says in Hebrews 9:16 (KJV) For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

We were sealed in 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (NIV) “He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”

We are delivered for Luke says, in 1:68 (KJV) “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people.” We have been delivered from sin and hell

A natural recourse for someone who gave His all for you and me would be for those who were redeemed by His very blood to give our all back to him. To totally surrender.

Let come what may for I have tasted the world and have settled for Jesus as my Lord and savior. So I can freely say without hesitation as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

I will be a living sacrifice for Jesus Christ.

I will be a mirror of your love and grace.

I will show others Jesus through my attitudes and my character.

I will do my best to be a living example of one who completely follows the word of God.
There is nothing in this world that even comes close to what Jesus will freely give if we only ask him. I’ve been in the world and I was miserable however I found all that I was looking for in Christ and I’m convinced you will too.

Intimacy in Christ,
Richard

What? Trust God right NOW?

Trusting God isn’t always easy when the things that are tangible have turned against you. It is also hard to trust God when the thirty foot tidal waves of circumstances comes tumbling down upon you and your about ready to drown. However, in the midst of harsh situations there is always someone there to help in your time of need and all you have to do is call out the name of Jesus. According to God’s word to living an abundant life it says that trusting him and standing upon his promises, is the best thing that we could possibly do. When we trust him completely only then will God begin to work out a miracle just for you. For every miracle in God’s Holy Word began with a overwhelming problem but thats when God steps in to make a difference in our lives. Let us ponder some overwhelming problems and consider how great God is in our time of need.
When Jacob stoled Esau’s birthright and ran for his life. Later when Jacob was confronted by his brother God gave grace to Esau towards his brother and Jacob was forgiven.
How about Moses and all of Israel at the Red Sea with the Egyptians coming down upon them. God out a pillar of fire to separate the Egyptians from the Jews while they had time to cross the Red Sea that God separated by his mighty power thereby saving the Israelites and drowning the Egyptians. Is there anything to hard for God? I don’t believe there is!!!

Let us go all out in trusting God for the miracles we need in our situations. However, if we stop short of trusting him completely we stop short of the miracles that are there waiting for us. A prayer never gets answered until there is a total trust upon the one we have offered the prayer to, because if we don’t…. then we do not fully trust in him. If faith and trust is not there then nothing happens and you wonder where God is in your life. He’s not there because you have failed to take the necessary step to him being there and that is faith and trust in God the Father who will take care of His children. He will always take care of His children. His love is eternal and it is everlasting. He can never loose his love for us. His love will never diminish or fade away. He loved us so much that He gave you and me the greatest gift he could of ever have given His one and only Son, for God so loved in John 3: 16 pretty much says it all.

The scripture verses I am going to share with you are one of the most powerful verses in God’s word, it describes within these verses how much he loves us, how much he will back you and support you, all the way till you get to heaven, and it describes how powerful His love is to sustain and keep us even when the thirty foot tidal waves of circumstances come tumbling down upon us to destroy us. We are more than conquerors, if God be for us who can be against us and nothing in all creation will be ever able to separate us from the love of God. AMEN!!!

So sit back pull out your Bibles open up to the book of Romans chapter 8 and read verses 31 to 39 and don’t forget to read the next verse right after that in Roman 9: 1 where Paul says, “I speak the truth in Christ–I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit.” Verse 1 solidifies and confirms what he just wrote in chapter 8.

After you read these verses sit back ruminate, think over and over what His word says to you and be encouraged by it. If this greatly lifts up your spirit, encourages and strengthens you spiritually e-mail me so I can be encourage by helping you.

Love in Christ,
