Reaching Out to the Hopeless

As the days go by time is running out. As a believer in Christ it is our responsibility to reach out to those who doesn’t know Christ. We cannot hold the knowledge that we learn from the Bible to ourselves. The question is what is holding you back from doing God’s will? Which is reaching out to the hopeless. God placed us on this earth to do his will after all we are just passing through.

Ask yourself this question: how can you impress God? Surely not by joining every single ministry in church nor attending church every Sunday and Bible study. These things does not impress God but taking what you have been taught and leading others to Christ does. Soon this earth will be no more and calling on his name does not mean anything.

Matthew 7:24 says, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”

Basically, God’s word is our foundation, as believers, we need to evangelize to the unbelievers. Reaching out to the hopeless will impress God. I am a praise dancer and I know being part of this ministry will not let me hear the words “well done” from God himself. It’s teaching others about Christ and not letting them go astray like lost sheep in the pastures. We cannot save ourselves, it’s time that we step out of our comfort zones and step out on faith to help others. Earth will pass away and we have to do our part. Christ already did his and that’s saving us by dying for us. So, with that being said do not be afraid to go out of your comfort zone to do God’s will. Eventually, God will take you out of your comfort zone. Be blessed everyone.

Dear God,

I lift up to you those who are afraid to step out of their comfort zones to reach out to the hopeless. Lord I ask that you remove the spirit of fear that is within them so that they can go out and make disciples. Give them a humble a spirit to go out of their comfort zones.

In Jesus name I Pray

Amen.

Come Alive

When you think of the words, ‘come alive,’ what do you think of? A valley of dry bones? Someone coming back from the dead? Or maybe someone trying to come back from an emotional, physical, mental pain.

Let’s go back to Ezekiel 37:1-14, where the Prophet Ezekiel prophesied to the valley of dry bones. He had a vision of a valley filled with dry bones and God told him to prophesy to the bones. As he did what God commanded him to do the bones began to shake. Imagine that. You having a vision and you see dry bones everywhere. Just imagine being in Ezekiel shoes and what he must have felt when that happened.

The dry bones were the people of Israel, God spoke life into them and brought them back to their land. this chapter is God’s future restoration of Israel. Take this event and I would say compare it to a situation where you were broken down or dry bones. Then someone prophesies to you, telling you that what God said will happen. In order for that to happen, you have to come alive. Just like it was God’s future to restore Israel, It’s his future to restore your life again.

God spoke life back into the dry bones so why can’t you let him do the same in your life? Every day you try to fight and live through it all but you cannot handle all of it. Ezekiel would not know what to say if he did not have God on his side. The dry bones did not come alive again on their own, no, by God’s command through the Prophet Ezekiel they came alive. I know that some of you may be going through things but don’t you think it’s time for you to come alive again. Finish what God has planned for you even when you starting to become dry bones.

It’s amazing to read about God’s miraculous wonders and to experience them in our lives. God wants the dead hearts to come alive again, he does not want to see what he has created gone to waste. God cares enough for us to not give up on living, to not be like the dry bones in the valley. I pray that each and every one of you come alive again. As in the words of Lauren Daigle,

”As we call out to dry bones come alive, come alive

We call out to dead hearts come alive, come alive

Out of the ashes, we see an army rise

We call out to dry bones come alive.”

Live life again no matter what. Do not be just bones, let God speak life into you again. Be blessed everyone!!!!!!

Family

A family is a beautiful thing to have. Especially when you have twelve siblings. Yes twelve siblings. (Not including me.) Being part of a big family is the greatest gift that God has given me.

Every family has issues but at the same time we need to be there for one another, even if they feel like they do not need each other. God placed each and every person within that family for a reason. Stop wishing you or they was part of a different family. Just because you see a happy family does not mean that they are not going through something. They probably going a difficult time than your own family problem.

No family is perfect. You see for me and my siblings whenever one of us going through something they are always there to help. Yes we laugh and have fun with each other, and enjoy each other company but when one of us does something that makes everyone else shake their head. We get disappointed but then help each other understand the decision that we made.

You make think that you do not need your family because you have your friends well friends can come and go. For me i love my family no matter what i would not trade them or wish them for a different family. Why? That’s the family God placed me in. I know that family can turn their back on you but at the end of the day family is important no matter who started what, or said something or did something. Family is all there is.

Personally, I believe that family knows best. When you have older siblings, they understand because they were once your age. A family should not turn their backs on another family member but sometimes it might be the best thing to do for that member to realize the decision that they have made. It’s best that as a family to pray for every member of the family and each area of their life.

Be a family. Be there for each other. There are people out there who does not even have a family. A family supports, love, trust, respect each other. The house does not make up a family, it’s the people that’s inside of it. Just like the church the building does not make up a church it’s the people that’s inside of it. A family is the best thing, cherish your family and I will cherish mines and my future family. Understand this, you (whoever is reading this) do not know whenever the last time you will see your family. Forgive each other. Stop letting situations tear your family apart. Stop saying you do not have a family. Stop with all of it. Be a family!!!!
