    Helping Our Kids See God Posted: 27 Mar 2017 01:00 AM PDT Devotion by Lysa TurKeurst: “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’” Matthew 19:14 (NIV) Growing up, my kids were always fascinated when I shared things I remembered from my childhood with them. Those memories were especially meaningful when I pointed out how the stories related to my life now. So much about our stories can be traced back to God working in our lives, and when we share them, our kids can see evidence that Jesus is real and intimately involved with us. What’s even more surprising is that they can later recall them in surprising detail! It’s amazing how well they remember the life lessons tied to the stories we tell. While it may be difficult for children to recall the exact passage of Scripture they just read, most can recall in specific detail the accounts of a story. For instance, I loved to tell my kids of the time my stepdad brought home a hand-me-down typewriter from his office. I placed my hands on the keys and wondered what it would be like to type pages of legible words. I loved the rap-tap-tap sound it made and envisioned myself finishing the final page of a book. I didn’t know enough words at that point to write an entire book, but one day I would. That story allowed me to point out that even back then, Jesus was preparing me for my calling as an author. And although my kids didn’t understand their own callings at that point, by seeing me live out mine and knowing that the Lord put it in my heart at a young age, they understood the reality that God does indeed have a plan for their lives. This gave them access to Divine Truth. Jesus wanted children to have access to Him, as He said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14). Although our kids might not have experienced all the ways God’s revealed Himself to us, we can use our stories to teach them of things to come — if they are willing to take hold of Him for themselves. As a mom, here are some things you can do on a regular basis to help your kids see God and take hold of Him:Not only trace the hand of God in past stories, but constantly look for ways to connect Biblical truths to everyday circumstances.Point out answers to things you’ve prayed about with your kids. Show them the many ways God provides and make sure they know where credit is due.Even in disappointments, talk to them about verses you use to keep trusting God. All 5 of my kids are adults now, and have their own relationships with the Lord. But before you get an overly idyllic view of my parenting, please know I didn’t do anything perfectly as a mom. I just invested lots of time and lots of prayers. There were seasons where my kids were really interested in growing spiritually and others where I wasn’t sure anything was sticking. But through it all, I kept trusting that no matter what, no spiritual truth taught is ever wasted.

    The Leper's Solitude Wednesday, March 29, 2017 Leviticus 13 says, "The one with leprosy shall wear torn clothes, uncover his head, cover his upper lip, and cry unclean…. He's to dwell alone." The leper in the bible is a picture of how we are spiritually, dwelling in this world as spiritual lepers. That's how most of us start out in life, unclean, with guilt inside. When you're guilty, you're not clean; you dwell alone, out of fellowship with God. Maybe you're saved now, but you still feel like you're not worthy. We have this account of the leper who didn't let his condition stop him from coming to Messiah. He comes to Messiah and says, "You can make me clean if you're willing." Messiah says, "I am willing." Yeshua touches him and he's cleansed and is at the end of his aloneness. Whatever the thing is in your life- no matter how bad or shameful- bring it to Messiah. Let Him touch it - your guilt, your shame, your infirmity - and He will remove it and your conscience will be cleansed. You won't dwell alone anymore, but with Him as a beloved child of God.From Message #655 - If You Are Willing Scripture: 1 John 1:9 TODAY'S MISSION - Bring your leprosy, your infirmity, your weakness, your shame, your wounds, your sin, and any unclean thing to Messiah today and let Him touch you and set you free. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

    When a bee stings you, it leaves its stinger in you along with part of its abdomen and digestive tract, thus killing the bee. The same is true when Jesus died on the cross. In his continuing hatred for God’s Son, Satan thought it a boundless idea to have Jesus betrayed, arrested, beaten, and then crucified on a Roman cross, a most barbaric way to die.  However, everything went as God had planned, and the sting of death defeated itself. So where is the sting of death for the believer? It is ripped out because at the cross, Jesus took the stinger out of death. As Christians, we no longer need to fear death because our souls will live on forever with Christ. Halleluyah!   Isaiah 25:8 (CJB) 8 He will swallow up death forever. Adonai Elohim will wipe away the tears from every face, and he will remove from all the earth the disgrace his people suffer. For Adonai has spoken. Hosea 13:14 (CJB) 14 Should I ransom them from the power of Sh’ol? Should I redeem them from death? Where are your plagues, death; where is your destruction, Sh’ol? My eyes are closed to compassion. 1 Corinthians 15:54-55 (CJB) 54 When what decays puts on imperishability and what is mortal puts on immortality, then this passage in the Tanakh will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory.[a] 55 “Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?”[b]

    March 29 A Man Worthy of Our Praise Matthew 8:23-27 The men traveling with Jesus on a stormy Galilean night said something that ought to make us sit up and take notice. “What kind of a man is this . . . ?” If we ask ourselves that same question, we will start to see the big picture of who Jesus is instead of concentrating on the “slivers” of personality revealed by individual stories. When the wind, which has been funneled through a narrow gorge, pushes out over the Sea of Galilee, the water becomes turbulent. Jesus and His disciples were caught in just such a dangerous storm while making their way to Gadara. Waves crashed over the deck of the wooden boat. The experienced seamen onboard were certain that death was imminent. But Jesus was sleeping. He was resting quietly during a storm so frightening that the Greek word used to describe it is seismos—from the same root that gives us the phrase “seismic activity” for earthquakes. What kind of man is this who can sleep while the boat heaves and pitches? The answer is: the One who createdthe seas and knows how a storm brews and what energy causes a wave to stay in motion. That’s the kind of man: a divine Being cloaked in humanity, who rebuked the winds and sea so that they became perfectly calm. Scripture indicates that both the air and the water were instantly stilled. Such is the power of Jesus, the Creator and Lord over the universe. Taken together, all the Biblestories about Jesus reveal the “big picture” that He is the only man worthy of glory, honor, and praise (Dan. 7:13-14).

    Matthew 25:34 (WEB) Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; Promise #88: I prepared a kingdom inheritance for you when I created the world. In today's promise, Jesus is telling a story about sheep and goats where the sheep (those who are in Christ) will be welcomed into the everlasting kingdom of our God and Father on that great day. Jesus tells us that the kingdom that we will inherit was prepared for us from the foundation of the world. You and I may not have a substantial inheritance on this side of heaven from our earthly parents, but when we finish our race and are welcomed into the dwelling place of our God and Father, we will have an everlasting kingdom inheritance waiting for us. May the reality of this promise encourage each one of us today. We are not poor in the sight of the living God, but are richer than any one of us could possibly imagine. Because we are sons and daughters to our Heavenly Dad... because we are joint-heirs with Jesus (our Elder Brother) ... because we are the temple of the Holy Spirit... we have an everlasting kingdom inheritance waiting for us. Hallelujah!!!!

    Once again, I have had several instances of a recurring theme show up, getting my attention. In this case it revolves around a shoe. You see, ever since I broke my leg, the time I spent recovering and healing, I found myself truly diving into Gods word for solace and comfort. I also spent a great deal of time painting, (although the paint was digital, just me and my iPad) I was playing around one day and just happened to start a free-form painting, something that looked like a woman's high heel shoe emerged, so I went with it. It came out fantastic, it pleased me so much, that it became the first in a series of shoes. I thought later on about it that perhaps it was because I was injured and desirous of being able to return to such attire (which seemed really far off, if ever at all).LOLRolling ahead, I've recovered, but keep painting my fancy shoes amongst other works of art. Incidentally, over over the last few weeks, I've been drawn to several passages in the Bible, all of which revolve around a shoe or shoes. I watched the movie, the Story of Ruth from the Bible, (Ruth 4:7) who became the wife of Boaz, (the Great Grandparents of David) I read about Moses being instructed to remove his shoes, as he was standing on Holy ground (Exodus 3:5) and the same thing for Joshua (Joshua 5: 14-15). Further research uncovered yet other mention of shoes, such as (Amos 2:6) which refers to Joseph, who was sold by his brothers into slavery! (which speaks to the injustices of this world, those who sit in high places who have dominion and power, supposing to be in good standing, who are not)Every account mentioned above, has different meanings, different connotations attached, one meant concession (forfeiting their possession or rights thereto) another meant humbleness, in standing before God and yet another stood for symbolism of an injustice (where money, possession and power were favored over the kinship of blood and brotherhood). So what is the underlying unifying theme to all of this. It is obedience, obtaining it, remaining in it or the lack of it!I think of a baby, walking around with no shoes, barefoot and it conjures up thoughts of trust, being carefree and cared for. God wants us in spirit to be barefoot to Him, like a baby. We see the loss of a shoe, as symbolic, this applies to anything you might have lost in your life; if it's yours and meant for you, worn by you, what use is it to anyone else?! In all honesty those that take from others will find that their spoils are as useful as one shoe, in other words useless! That which is taken from us wrongfully, will surely have to be returned or counted to us for restitution. Then we have the conscious and intentional forfeit, isn't that a picture of dying to this world for the gain of Christ Jesus?! Having the Lord dwell within us, shouldn't we allow Him to fill our shoes? To order our footsteps and keep us on that path?! Blessed are the feet of those who spread the Gospel! Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! I hope that gives you some new insights on the significance of walking with the Lord and staying in step with the rhythm of obedience! Have a Blessed week!Heavenly Father, I plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over the family, my brothers and sisters in Christ, Lord. let our footsteps always be in proper alignment.

    God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him. John Wesley

      "Being  a Chrsitian is more than a  instantaneous conversation it is a daily process '' Billy Graham, " This song should be our prayer to be more like Jesus .................... More Like You More like you, Jesus, more like you Fill my heart with your desire To make me more like you More like you, Jesus, more like you Touch my lips with Holy fire And make me more like you Lord you are my mercy Lord you are my grace All my deepest sins Have forever been erased Draw me in your presence Lead me in your ways I long to bring you glory In righteousness and praise Lord you are compassion And never ending love For you have redeemed me By your priceless blood Create in me a clean heart A spirit that is new The joy of my salvation Is only found in you!

    If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. 22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee. ( PSALM 33:22 (KJV )     This is a daily devotional I get in my email from God's minute. He uses different Bible versions. It make me feel good to know that God has such a deep love for us that he inspired men to write the word of God so we can read the biggest love story of them all...in The Word Of God! I pray that this blesses you and puts a smile on your face. I love you all very much. Jesus bless you !     God's love for each one of us is tremendous indeed! For every child of His is very important to Him! So today I will share with you something that one of our Sister's sent to me this week. It speaks of God's Tremendous love for each of us.     To you, If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.   If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.   He sends you flowers every spring.   He sends you a sunrise every morning.   Whenever you want to talk, He listens.   He can live anywhere in the Universe, but He chose your heart.   Now God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.   So face it , He is crazy about you!   Therefore let us; GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD; HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER! Amen. ( 1 CHRONICLES 16:34 )
