Jesus is the anchor to our soul. He is our solid true Source. He is our staying power. If you feel yourself drifting, call out to Him for He that walks on water will lift you up out of the raging seas of this life and set you on His solid rock.
This encouraging poster will remind you that we are not left adrift without a sail. Our hope is in Him, “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul . . .” Hebrews 6:19.
“Something for nothing!” It seems to be the way of the world. Many are searching for the next big thing that is going to push them toward success yet, when the face of work peeps around the corner they run in the opposite direction. Life takes work! Anything worth having takes work! Something will not come out of nothing! It takes effort of heart and mind, strength and endurance!
The farmer will not dare to go out into the field hoping to reap that which he has not sown. If no seeds were put into the ground, if the field had not be tended to, and if the work has not been done he knows that when the time of harvest comes there will be no produce. Yet, many still go out into the field seeking to reap when they have not planted.
“He who tills his land!” He who works it! He who puts forth an honest effort knowing that if he keeps persevering and keeps pushing forward eventually he will reach the point of plenty. Your land is what God gave you. It is your gift, your ability, your talents and skills. A lot of people put a lot of faith in things that will not produce a harvest. Work what God gave you! Guard what you do with your time and effort. Are they leading you to where you want to be? Is what you’re doing sowing into your future? Will you be able to reap “plenty” from the seeds you have planted today? We only have one life to live, by the grace of God, make it count! Work it today! God bless you in all your endeavors today 🙂
“Other’s said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? ” John 7:41, KJV
When it comes to Jesus everyone will experience one of three responses: you believe, you don’t believe or you don’t know what to believe. Jesus had that effect on people. He would do things (miracles) that utterly dumbfounded people. He would say things like, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink,” (John 7:37, KJV), that would take people totally off guard and they couldn’t help but to be amazed by the words that came from His mouth. Yet, there are those who deride who He says He is and they say, “Shall Christ come out of Galilee?” (John 7:41, KJV). These types look for reasons not to believe.
It is an awesome thing to be fully persuaded in one’s own heart that “This is the Christ!” Many in the crowd that Jesus was speaking to on that day were divided. They were not only divided with one another, but they were perplexed within themselves about the man who stood before them teaching with such authority. They heard and saw but still wrestled in their heart to believe. Yet, in the division, there were some who knew, who felt the truth within them that “This is the Christ!”
Commotions, dissentions and disagreements, they will always exist as long as this world does. But, for those whose hearts are grounded in the truth, they can boldly declare, “This is the Christ!”
How often has someone come against your faith? How many times have you been ridiculed for what you believe in? If not verbally, but in the way others treat you because of your hope in Him? One’s faith is at the core of the declaration of Christ for oneself. If the faith is real, it will keep him/her rested in their Savior despite the contentions around. Yet, if it is but a surface faith, when hardness of life approaches it will wither under the pressure of adversity.
“This is the Christ!” The soul that can still declare that is a soul happy before his/her Lord. The soul that cleaves to the truth of these words is the soul that won’t soon be moved. The soul that rest in that wonderful truth is the soul that will find peace eternal no matter the failing of others who don’t recognize Him for who He is.
“This is the Christ!” That’s who He was then and that’s who He remains to be today. Keep your hope anchored in that truth and no matter what else may be going on in your life, your faith in who He is will see you through. Be blessed in this wonderful truth today!
This is a MUST READ!!!! The words and attitudes we have toward others MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!! Read this and be blessed 🙂
What you say can mean life or death. PROVERBS 18:21
Nathaniel Hawthorne came home heartbroken. He’d just been fired from his job in the custom house. His wife, rather than responding with anxiety, surprised him with joy. “Now you can write your book!”
He wasn’t so positive. “And what shall we live on while I’m writing it?”
To his amazement she opened a drawer and revealed a wad of money she’d saved out of her housekeeping budget. “I always knew you were a man of genius,” she told him. “I always knew you’d write a masterpiece.”
She believed in her husband. And because she did, he wrote. And because he wrote, every library in America has a copy of The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
You have the power to change someone’s life simply by the words that you speak. “What you say can mean life or death.”
