    Sunday, March 29, 2020 Speak To Your Mountain       MARK 11:23 NKJ 23 "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, `Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says. "Talk to mountains? Do you think I'm crazy?" Jesus talked to things, and taught that "whoever" could also speak to mountains. A mountain is primarily any obstacle that stands in your way. Faced with obstacles, most Christians pray to God. But Jesus told us to speak directly to the obstacle and tell it to be removed. There is nothing wrong with discussing things with God. You should. But when something is blocking your progress -- Jesus said YOU should tell it to get out of the way. Most Christians just speak to God about the mountain, instead of following Jesus' directions and speaking directly to the mountain. Are you just talking to God about the problems in your life, instead of talking directly to the problems and telling them to be removed? MATTHEW 17:20 NKJ 20 So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. According to Jesus, unbelief keeps us from speaking to our mountains. What is the mountain in your life? What stands in the way of your progress? What holds you back from going forward and fulfilling God's plan? Speak God's Word to that mountain! Speak to the devil and his forces and tell them to get out of your affairs. Speak to sickness and tell it that it can't stay in your body. Speak to debt and financial lack and tell them to be removed from your life. Speak to doubt, fear, and worry and tell them to be gone. If you say, "I just can't believe it would do any good for me to talk to problems," that's why you still have them. Read what Jesus said again, and again. SAY THIS: I will speak to the mountains that try to hold me back.

      March 29 The Blood of Jesus How much more . . . will the blood of Christ . . . cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death. Hebrews 9:14, niv Do you know people who arrogantly insist that if their good works outweigh their bad works, God is somehow obligated to accept them? As you look around, what “fruit” do you see others bringing to the place of sacrifice instead of humbly approaching God through the blood of His Son? The “fruit” of religious activity,           good works,                        morality,                                  or philanthropy? Many people do not want to come to the place of sacrifice, the Cross of Jesus Christ, because it intensifies the conviction of their own sin and judgment and is a reminder that heaven’s gate is closed to sinners. God warns that “a man is not justified by observing the law,” (Gal. 2:16, niv) because “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness” of sin (Heb. 9:22, niv). So humble yourself, come to the Cross, and thank God for the blood of Jesus that is sufficient to forgive any and all sin.

      Is Jesus Your Hiding Place? MARCH 29 For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah (Pause and think about that.)  Psalm 61:3-4 Of the 6500 hymns written by Charles Wesley, founder of the Methodist church, one of the finest is “Jesus, Lover of My Soul.” It’s been said that Wesley was inspired to write it after walking through the woods on a stormy day. A cloud burst and a lightning storm broke out. The rain began to come down in torrents. By a swollen stream, little birds were shivering on a tree limb. A bolt of lightning flashed, and one was so frightened, it flew down toward Charles Wesley and tried to hide inside his coat. Wesley was so moved by that, he wrote,  “Jesus, lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly, While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high. Hide me, Oh my Savior, hide me till the storm life is past, Safely to the haven guide. Oh receive my soul at last. That's what our Lord does; He hides us. He sustains us. He keeps us. The song’s lyrics are a poignant picture of a young man’s journey into discovering the love of his life—Jesus. Another hymn says it like this: “Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee. Oh blessed Rock of Ages, I'm hiding in Thee.” Where is your heart today? Are you suffering from a broken relationship or the loss of a loved one? Run, don’t walk, into His waiting arms of love. Jesus wants to bind up your hurt and bring hope to your heart.

      March 29 “He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”  - Revelation 3:21 “Old iron bedstead religion” is firm on each end, but sags in the middle. A person receives Christ as Savior, and is exuberant at the launch of his walk in the Lord. Another is approaching earthly life’s end, confident and firm in the assurance of Heaven. But there’s a middle stage in the Christian life, between the exuberance of the New Birth and the quiet assurance of eternal security. The overcomers are those who experience victory in the middle, when the initial exuberance is years in the past and the final lap decades into the future. Overcomers are firm in the middle.

    Cleansed by the Blood By Billy Graham   •   March 29   •   Topics: Forgiveness Share Tweet Home Daily Devotion Cleansed by the Blood . . . unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.—Revelation 1:5 Blood is mentioned 460 times in the Bible. Fourteen times in the New Testament Jesus spoke of His own blood. Why? Because by the shedding of His blood, He accomplished the possibility of our salvation. He paid the penalty for our sin and redeemed us. The penalty for our sin and rebellion is death; Jesus stepped out and said, “I’ll take that death.” He voluntarily laid down His life and took the penalty we deserve. That’s what the cross is all about. The blood of Jesus Christ not only redeems us, it justifies us. Being justified means more than being forgiven. I can say, “I forgive you,” but I can’t justify you. But God not only forgives the past, He clothes you in righteousness as though you had never committed a sin. Yet it cost the blood of His Son on the cross. Why does God require blood to be shed? Listen to Billy Graham’s explanation. Read More: Why do Christians put such an emphasis on the blood of Christ? Prayer for the day Lord Jesus, with a deeply grateful heart I thank You for Your sacrifice upon the cross. Your blood has cleansed my sin and made me worthy of forgiveness.

    Jesus: The Judge of the Living and the Dead And He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be the judge of the living and the dead. Acts 10:42   Jesus is the Judge of the Living and the Dead. This means that He is the Judge of believers and nonbelievers, those who are living and those already dead. Those who believe in Jesus are saved (they have eternal life), and those who don’t believe in Him are dead in trespasses and sins (Ephesians 2:1). Jesus will judge believers to give them their rewards, and He will judge the unsaved to determine their punishment (Revelation 20:11-12). Jesus is the Judge of all people; none can escape His scrutiny. Because you believe in Him, your sins have been forgiven. Jesus will not punish you in judgment, but you will have to give an account of your faithfulness and works (1 Corinthians 3:12-17).   Lord, thank You for eternal life. Help me to serve You faithfully so that I can look forward to seeing You, not to receive Your anger, but to receive Your rewards.   Jesus is the Judge of the Living and the Dead; no one can escape His judgment throne. Some think that only those living when He returns will be judged. No, Jesus will raise all the dead to appear before Him with the living. He is the Judge of all souls in the universe; no one will be exempt. Plead His mercy today, so you won’t meet His anger in the future.   Lord, I know You have judged my sins on the cross; in appreciation I worship You. I know You will judge all unsaved people, so in gratitude, I thank You for salvation. I know all people will appear before You; I am not perfect, so I will be judged. My only plea is Your righteousness. Amen.   Go Deeper: Acts 10:34-43   Jesus will judge all people, both saved and unsaved.

    What Makes Christianity Different? By Billy Graham   •   April 7 Share22K+ Tweet Home Daily Devotion What Makes Christianity Different? He is not here, but is risen.—Luke 24:6 Something distinguishes Christianity from all the religions of the world. Not only does it carry the truth of the redemption, by the death of our Savior for our sins on the cross, but it carries the fact that Christ rose again. Only the Christian faith claims that its Leader died and rose again and is alive at this moment. Many gravestones carry the inscription, “Here lies . . . ,” but on Christ’s tomb are emblazoned the words, “He is not here.” Christianity has no shrines to visit, no dusty remains to venerate, no tombs at which to worship. Many good men have lived, and still live, in the memory of those who knew them, but there is only one Man who conquered death—Jesus Christ—and He will live forever. Listen to Billy Graham explain the resurrection in one minute. Prayer for the day The account of Your resurrection never ceases to bring me joy, Lord Jesus.

    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!

      "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!

      "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!

    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

    Love Has to Grow Joni Eareckson Tada, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” -1 Corinthians 13:4, 6-7 Love must grow. It can’t stand still, and it certainly cannot go backward. Love must flourish or else it withers and dies. In fact, growth in a relationship is very much like growth in a tree or flower. If a flower doesn’t bloom, if a tree doesn’t sprout leaves, it signals a problem. Our love for the Lord Jesus is also a living thing. We are intimately united with Him in His body. Remember, love between you and your Lord, like anything that lives, must grow. Just think 1 Corinthians 13 is how God feels about you! We can always come up with good excuses as to why our relationships do not progress and increase in love. But instead of blaming others, ask yourself a couple of direct questions about love. Do I protect my loved one’s reputation? Are my expectations unrealistic? Do I pray committedly? Does my love cover a multitude of the other’s sins? Do I keep Christ at the center of our relationship? Lord, help me to be patient and kind toward others. Help me not to envy those who seem to be enjoying tremendous progress and increase in their marriages. Help me not to boast when I’m right, or be proud when others are wrong. Help me not to be rude to my husband… wife… or friend. I don’t want my love to be self-seeking, or easily angered. And, Lord, convict me if I start keeping a record of wrongs, for I desire that my love will always rejoice with the truth. Help me to have faith, hope, and love ever increasing, ever growing.
