Quit Stealing the Pen

God is still writing your story; quit trying to steal the pen

Hello my friends and welcome to Saturday! I pray that this week went well for all of you and you are closer to Jesus than ever before. If you don’t know Jesus as Savior today, please run to Him and accept His free (to you) gift of Salvation while you still have the choice to make, Amen?

Ok so I posted this quote this week and got a really good response from it so I thought I would expand upon my thoughts on this today. Sound good?

Stealing the pen…many believe that there is no point in making plans and setting a course for your life because things are already predetermined and nothing you or I do will make a difference. That could not be further from the truth this morning. Stay with me here and really soak in this next sentence and commit it to memory..

**Just because God knows the choices you will make does not take away the opportunity you have to make those choices**

David Fischer

The first lie is that you have no real choices; the second lie is that God doesn’t really care or He is not moving fast enough so you need to take back control of your life (steal the pen from God). You do all understand that God created EVERYTHING in the Universe right? You understand that God made you from dust into the sophisticated, complex, unbelievable creation that you have become right? So why in the world would you want to give up that direction and take your own? How well as it worked so far?

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” 

Isaiah 41:10

Friends, God is, always has been, and always will be in control of everything that is going on in His Creation. Unfortunately, the free will He has given us we take and mess things up. The reason we have this free will is God wanted us to love Him not by force but by CHOICE. Again, He knows what our choice will be, yet we still can make the choice. Today, make the choice to give back the pen of life to Jesus. He knows more about you than you ever will; He knew you before you were even created so of course He will have the best plans and the best paths for your life. Trust Him to do for you what you simply cannot do for yourself.

Give up the pen; in fact, give it up and NEVER take it back. The God of all Creation is just waiting to write your next Great Chapter. I promise you, it will be a best seller….

-Blessings and Love,

David

It’s Time!

Restore us, O Lord God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved! – Psalm 80:19

Hello friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope that all is well and your relationship with Jesus grows every single day. On that note, lets get started…

So in case you haven’t noticed, the world around us is quite literally going to Hell. There are too many reasons I could list, but suffice it to say, our world is totally run by demonic forces at every turn. Now, even believers are being affected like never before. There is no unity in the body as we debate furiously about how smart we are in God’s Word, judging everyone that doesn’t act exactly as we do, and heck even promoting the very sin that many are trying to flee on a daily basis.

So it hit me yesterday….We need a Revival! A Revival of the likes the world has never seen. A time where all believers unite under the Word of God and prayerfully march upon the very gates of Hell and say with one voice; JESUS IS LORD OF LORDS and KING OF KINGS. That we would put our petty differences aside and as ONE body of Christ, show the lost (maybe for one last time) the Light of Jesus Christ.

Send a message to Lucifer himself that he has already lost the war and as God’s appointed people we are going to share the Truth of Christ to everyone we can and make sure he has as few people with him in the Lake of Fire as possible. (Yes, the Lake of Fire will be a very real place where you will spend eternity suffering if you continue to ignore the sacrifice God made so your debt could be paid.)

Ephesians 2:8-9

So who is with me? Who would like to slam down the doors of Hell itself and start a Revival like no one has ever seen? It’s up to all of us; in our daily lives and actions. We must start by praying that Jesus would fill us up with the Holy Spirit like never before and then listen to His guidance. Time on this world is getting shorter every minute, but there is still time to win a few more battles Amen?

Looking forward to hearing from each of you in this endeavour. If you are, please write your name in the comments below so I can pray for each of you. It’s time friends….

Agape Love,

Be Happy!

Jesus second coming In the clouds

Psalm 37:4- Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

God

Good morning everyone! I didn’t think I would be able to write a blog post this morning because we went to see my Grandson play his football game, then we were going to go help our youngest son finish moving. However, he called us to say that he got it all done and while he would love to see us, didn’t really need our help anymore. So, with things tight around our own move, we stayed home and well here I am! Hopefully the message God has given me hits home.

Be happy….

I know in the world we live in, it becomes increasingly difficult to be happy and joyful. Seemingly every time you turn around, someone or something is determined to ruin your day. Can anyone relate? Our world has become evil beyond anything I ever thought I would see in my lifetime and honestly, there are not too many Christ Followers that I find I can count on either. (That is a topic for a different post.)

So, if your like me, I just hold on tight to God and my Bride and deflect all others that would try and bring me down. Problem is though, that is not the way God wants us to live. He didn’t send His Son Jesus to die on the Cross so we could be miserable all the time, no He wants us to find joy! Joy not in what the world offers but with what HE offers; both here and in the life to come.

Have we forgotten what awaits those who accept the free gift of Salvation?

Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Jesus Christ

Can you even begin to wrap your mind around that concept? No more tears, no more death, no more pain..My gosh what a gift! Yet many of us live as if this world is all there is; friends, its time to BE HAPPY!

Do our circumstances get rough? Yes, Jesus said they would. Are there times where we feel like giving up? Yes, Jesus said that we would. Are there times where you feel like everyone is against you? Yes, Jesus said many would fall from their faith and family would turn against each other (in some cases). But He also has said that through Him we have ALREADY overcome!

Yes in the next life it will all be perfect, but we can live a life worth living here as well! Paul said to “keep our eyes on the prize” and if we do that, how can we possibly live a life of unhappiness. So how about it? Can we focus on what is really important today? Can we live the life of joy that Christ wants us too?

You have given the world its shot, give Jesus His, Amen?

Agape Love,

David

Hello friends and welcome to the weekend. For some of you, the weekend may have actually started yesterday for the Labor Day Weekend. Mine officially started at 2pm Thursday as I have been blessed with a job that does that kind of thing from time to time. Anyway, I hope that all is well and your relationship with Jesus grows every single day. On that note, lets get started…

John Cooper-Skillet

Radically Saved

I am going to let what John Cooper stated the other day speak for itself; we would be wise to heed his words..(And listen to his music, just saying)

Blessings!

Ok I’m saying it. Because it’s too important not to. What is happening in Christianity? More and more of our outspoken leaders or influencers who were once “faces” of the faith are falling away. And at the same time they are being very vocal and bold about it. Shockingly they still want to influence others (for what purpose?)as they announce that they are leaving the faith. I’ll state my conclusion, then I’ll state some rebuttals to statements I’ve read by some of them. Firstly, I never judge people outside of my faith. Even if they hate religion or Christianity. That is not my place and I have many friends who disagree with my religion and that is 100% fine…
