The Lord is faithful

2 Thessalonians 3:3-5,16 

"But the Lord is faithful; He will make you strong and guard you from the evil one. And we are confident in the Lord that you are practicing the things we commanded you, and that you always will. May the Lord bring you into an ever deeper understanding of the love of God and the endurance that comes from Christ."
"May the Lord of peace Himself always give you His peace no matter what happens. The Lord be with you all."

This is my prayer for you today:

I ask You Lord to make us strong and guard us from the evil one. You are such a loving and faithful God. I ask You to make us confident in You and help us to keep practicing the things You have taught us and commanded us to do.

Please bring us into an ever deeper understanding of the love and grace of God and the endurance that comes from Christ. May the Lord of peace Himself always give us His peace, no matter what our circumstances might be. We praise and thank You for all of the prayers You answer on our behalf through Jesus Christ our precious Lord.

Confidence and Compassion in Prayer

"He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God."

Confidence and Compassion in Prayer

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. (1 John 5:12-15 NKJV)

Have you asked the Lord Jesus to come into your heart through faith? Have you asked Him to forgive you your sins so you can make your peace with God forever?

God has promised that those who believe in His son Jesus Christ will have eternal life forever. I praise and thank God daily for delivering me from the pits of hell and releasing the darkness which surrounded me before I had knew Him personally. He has brought me into  His eternal light and His Divine Kingdom forever. 

A lot of us are unware that we are in sin and I include myself in this statement. It was not until I confessed my sins before God, asking Him to forgive me everything I had ever done to offend Him, that I found true peace within my heart. I invited Jesus Christ to come into my heart and make His home within me. He filled me in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God and now the Trinity and Godhead rule over me.

I surrender my life to the Godhead on a daily basis. My mind and heart has been transformed into the image of Christ Jesus. He helps me to grasp His Word so I can come to know, love, obey and enjoy the God of the universe.

A House Of Prayer

On 21 November 2012 my new book, A House Of Prayer, was published.  It contains scripture, daily prayers and corresponding lessons learnt for each day of the year.
Through reading the Daily Devotional, the reader will experience the relationship between myself and God, as well as understanding how prayer can encourage our understanding of God's purpose in our lives.

'This Daily Devotional Book has shown me the blessings that you can receive through spending time with God and the prayers encourage us to remember that nothing is too small or too big to share with God.' - Charlotte Jones
