RUN TO HIM, NOT FROM HIM!

DO YOU REMEMBER A TIME WHEN YOU FELL ON YOUR FACE?

What was the first thing you did?

YOU LOOKED AROUND TO MAKE SURE NOBODY SAW YOU AS YOU SPRUNG TO YOUR FEET!

You were a little embarrassed.  You wanted to get out of the area as quickly as possible.  Get me out of here!

SO MANY PEOPLE DO THAT WITH JESUS.

They make a poor choice and sin.  They wipe out spiritually and it was right out on the public street.

THE FIRST REACTION…..

Get me out of here!  I sadly have watched people make poor choices and instead of running to Jesus, they run from Him.

Instead of continuing their spiritual walk with Christ, they walk back to the world and sin where they came from.  They stay away from church and the place that can help restore them.  As a Pastor there is one thing for sure – THEY AVOID THE PREACHER.

LET ME HELP YOU TODAY!

John 8:7, However, when they persisted with their question, He raised Himself up and said, Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.  NOBODY IS PERFECT!  We all have issues we are working through.  People need to mind their own business and deal with their own sin.

JESUS WANTS YOU TO FALL UP TO HIM, NOT RUN FROM HIM!

1 John 1:9,  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

RUN TO JESUS FOR FORGIVENESS AND HE WILL WASH YOUR SINS AWAY!

Phil. 3:13-14, No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

FALL UP, NOT DOWN!

PROBLEMS EVERYWHERE!


victor

I HAVE HEARD IT SPOKEN OUT OF PEOPLE’S MOUTHS FOR OVER A QUARTER OF A CENTURY, “I cannot wait to get out of here” or “When I move down south it will be better.”

There are people walking beaches right now who have the same troubles you have way up north.  There are people with millions in the bank who are having the same troubles as those with pennies in a piggy bank.  It does not matter the location or wealth or status if you are having problems and trouble in your life!

THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER THAT SPANS LOCATION, WEALTH, POWER, STATUS…..His name is JESUS!

You can have all the world’s best and still have nothing.

You can have nothing and still have nothing.

IF YOU HAVE JESUS…..YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TO EVERY PROBLEM THAT COMES YOUR WAY!

Stop trying to run, stop trying to blame, stop complaining and go to Jesus who can distribute the miracle you need.

Ps. 55:22, Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

1 Pet. 5:7, Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Phil 4:6-8, Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

STOP TRYING TO RUN AND HIDE!

STAND UP AND SPEAK TO YOUR MOUNTAIN IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND WATCH THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF HEAVEN BREAK EVERY SITUATION!

Matt. 21:21, Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen.

Judge Yourself


Judge For Yourself

Today is a simple, yet difficult devotion.

WHY?

Because we are going to do something that none of us enjoy doing….JUDGING OURSELVES!

Ps. 139:23-24,  Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!  24 And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. AMP

HAS JESUS BEEN NUMBER 1 IN OUR LIVES THIS WEEK?

HAVE WE SHARED JESUS WITH ANYONE THIS WEEK?

HAVE I LIVED UPRIGHTLY BEFORE JESUS WITH WEEK?

If your answers are not favorable then ask forgiveness and run the race with more focus and clarity TODAY!

TODAY IS A NEW DAY, SO RUN IT TO WIN THE RACE!

1 Cor. 9:24,  Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [of the prize] and make it yours. AMP

YOUR CALLED TO CHAMPION!


Rat Race

GOD HAS NOT CALLED YOU TO RUN THE RACE AND LOSE, HE HAS CALLED YOU TO BE A CHAMPION!

1 Cor. 9:24-27

Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! 25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. 26 So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. 27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.

This is not a RAT race, unless you are a RAT!

THIS IS A RACE TO KNOW AND FULFILL GOD’S PURPOSES FOR YOUR LIFE, AND OUR LIFE AS A CHURCH.

Paul makes the declaration that we are to run this race to win, not just to make it close to the end.  We are running to achieve a prize, and not one made with hands.

THE WORLD RUNS THE RAT RACE TO OBTAIN TEMPORARY THINGS.  They strive after money, fame, stuff, love and worth from others, BUT all that will come up short not just in this life but in the life to come.

WE, THE TEAM OF JESUS, ARE RUNNING THE RACE TO OBTAIN THE GREATEST THING!  To hear our Father say, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”

SO WHICH RACE ARE YOU IN TODAY?

WHAT FINISH LINE IS IN FRONT OF YOU?

IF YOU DIED TODAY WHAT WOULD BE YOUR PRIZE?
