This is Christmas

"But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord'." 
 (Luke 2:10-11)

CHRIST Came To Bring Peace

"During December most people do not think about the Advent, the coming of Christ, as the heart of Christmas. At best, the birth of the Savior is associated with the 'holiday season' along with all the other preoccupations. Sometimes it's hard to concentrate over the sounds of office party laughter, Christmas movies, shopping ads and traffic jams. Things certainly have moved a long way from that first Christmas night, haven't they?....
Jesus brings hope and healing to our lives. Set aside those things that take you away from Him. Even as you celebrate with loved ones, kneel before Jesus, the One whom the celebrations are all about." Haven Ministries' Anchor Devotional December 3, 2016
Luke 2:13 "Suddenly a great army of Heaven's angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:
'Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and peace on earth to those with whom
He is pleased!' "

Thank God for You

Thank God for giving you an existence. For every breath you take. For making your heart beat non-stop from your making in the womb until you depart this world. For He controls these things. "What gives life is God's Spirit." John 6:63

Do you know how deeply you are loved?

Do you know how deeply you are loved? The Bible has countless mentions of God's "constant love" for us.
As well, "We love because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19
To know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge..." Ephesians 3:19

Jeremiah 31:3 “The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”

The LORD Goes Before You

I lost my job  Their business just slowed down to where they couldn't keep me on payroll.  It was a temp job.   Dealing with anxiety about the future is such a challenge for me.  But this passage in Sarah Young's book Jesus Calling book really hit home with me. It is for October 17..

2) Remember the promise of My continual Presence; include Me in any imagery that comes to mind (about the future).

Wow. What an idea. And it's true. Whenever I'm worried about something about the future I'm not thinking about Jesus in the midst of it.  I'm thinking about the thing that is worrying me.   Now place Him there in it with you, Michele.

Just wanted to share this revelation, as it is for me.   Remember Jesus is with you always and there's also a Scripture about Him being head of us too in the future before we get there.  Where is it? Here it is:

Deuteronomy 31:8  "The LORD is the One who goes ahead of you; He will be with you.  He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed."

Isaiah 45:2 "I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through the iron bars."

Deuteronomy 1:30 "The LORD your GOD who goes before you will Himself fight on your behalf, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes."

Listen to this great story of truth of how faith can work at any level.

Kenneth Hagin tells of a time he prayed with a woman at a church before 
she was to go in for a surgery on her stomach. Though Kenneth Hagin wanted to pray that
God would heal her completely so she would not need surgery, she could not believe that. 
So he asked her what could she believe in prayer?  She said she could believe 
that God would at least see her through the surgery well.  
So Kenneth said, all right, we'll pray for that and a swift recovery,
explaining to her that when two people agree in prayer, it will be done.   
Since she could agree with him on this, they prayed.  
Well, after her surgery, the physician told Kenneth that they had operated
deeper to check for more than what they operated for. 
They found what they knew was there but found nothing else; 
but as a result, her incision was much larger.
  When the physician learned, that all day since the woman awoke from surgery,
she had been given no pain medicine, he hastened to ask her if she needed any.
He fully expected her to.  When she insisted she never had any pain at all, 
the doctor still gave her a pain killer shot; but she never got another one.
The doctor told Kenneth Hagin this was unheard of - for someone with this
great a surgery to not need pain medicine.  He said it was nothing short of a miracle.
