Love Your Enemies

Luke 6:27-35

Love Your Enemies

27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29 To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic[a] either. 30 Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.
32 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.

Fear Not

Isaiah 41:10-15

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 “All who rage against you
    will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
    will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
    you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
    will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the Lord your God
    who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
    I will help you.
14 Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob,
    little Israel, do not fear,
for I myself will help you,” declares the Lord,
    your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge,
    new and sharp, with many teeth.
You will thresh the mountains and crush them,
    and reduce the hills to chaff.

How to Prosper Like Joseph

Like Joseph you can prosper in every place and in every situation you find myself, because the Lord is always with you if you allow him to order your steps. You  too,  will experience preferential treatment.
(Gen 39:4 KJV) And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand. (Gen 39:5 KJV) (Gen 39:21 KJV) But the LORD was with Joseph, and showed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

To have victory in our lives we must meditate on the word of God day and night.

In order to experience a victorious life in Christ we must meditate on the word of God day and night. Philippians 4:4-9 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Are You A Risk Taker?

Are You A Risk Taker? Let 2015 be the year of greatness and abundance of all good things for you. Leave fears and doubt behind. Go forward with confidence and faith. The most successful people are risk takers. Jesus spoke of the man who had five talents and gained 5 more. Another had two and doubled it also. One had one, and buried it because he was afraid of losing it. Are you burying the talent God has given you? Are you afraid to invest your time, money, love? Think about it. The men who increased were commended by their master while the one who was afraid to take risk was rebuked. Let 2015 be the year of greatness and abundance of all good things for you. Leave fears and doubt behind. Go forward with confidence and faith. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
