SIMPLE FAITH
THE BIBLE SAYS:
Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.
Luke 18:17
Some people in our modern world argue that it is foolish to have faith in God.
To many, this kind of faith is naive and childish.
In the sight of God it is the childlike faith that opens the door to blessings, and to spiritual riches and power.
Jesus says that we cannot even enter God’s Kingdom unless we approach it like a child.
A reminder….. Faith is : Believing in the Spirit what will come to pass in the natural.
Without faith it is impossible to please God.
Don’t allow doubt to keep you from trusting in God. Don’t give in to those who question His Word.
Put aside the opinions of foolish people.
Approach God and His Word just like a child.
Believe Him
Trust Him
Have Faith in Him.

CONTENTMENT
THE BIBLE SAYS:
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
Philippians 4:11
Real contentment doesn’t depend on absolute stability, or on knowing people of status, or having a lot of lavish things, or traveling all over the world.
Real contentment comes by knowing that Jesus Christ’s is our unfailing resource.
When the test in life happen and they will…..
Our balance remains stable in knowing him.
Contentment comes in knowing that God is with us in all circumstances, especially in the struggle.
Knowing that God sees, cares, and works in our circumstances gives you and I every reason to live in contentment.
I have learned….when things don’t go my way to look to God
I have learned when clouds are gray to look to God.
For I know His love and care…surround me
Always.Joyce Smith

LIE NOT ONE TO ANOTHER, SEEING THAT YOU HAVE PUT OFF THE OLD MAN WITH HIS DEEDS;
AND HAVE PUT ON THE NEW MAN ,WHICH IS RENEWED IN KNOWLEDGE AFTER THE IMAGE OF HIM THAT CREATED HIM

Prepared to Be Mighty
The Bible says:
Jotham became mighty because he prepared his ways before the LORD his GOD.
2 Chronicles 27:6
Every wonder why Jotham was so successful?
Was it his skills, his ideas, his education, his resources, his family history?
These may have been contributing factors but the Bible says that Jotham became mighty ” because he prepared his ways before the LORD his GOD.”
THIS KIND OF MIGHT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN AUTOMATICALLY.IT REQUIRED PREPARATION.
Establishing a strong foundation.
He realized his dependence on God.He learned His Word, and sought to walk in His ways.He was faithful to his calling, to lead his people in ways that would be pleasing to God.
We too need to be humble in His sight, recognize our need of Him, and know His Word.
Spend time in prayer.

JESUS IS CALLING
THE BIBLE SAYS:
Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fisherman.And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him.
Mark 1: 16-18
No matter your circumstances, if you listen carefully, you can hear Jesus calling . His sweet voice calling to you ,” Follow Me!”
When JESUS calls you…
You must turn away from home, work, and family, and leave all to follow Him.
The world will attract you
The world will distract you.
But remember…your days may be filled with joys or sorrow, but” still He calls, in cares and pleasures, Christian, love Me more than these!”
Jesus is calling you to hear Him
Commit your way to Him and
Trust not in your own understanding .
Let Him direct your path.

Simple and True
The Bible says:
I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
John 14: 6
The world is filled with counterfeits. With ideas that sound spiritual and make sense to those who have frail minds.
Some reject the authority of Scripture and deny Christ, creating their own set of beliefs.
As a result , millions are being led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
Make sure you are on guard against these influences.
Do not allow anything to turn you away from the simplicity of your faith in Jesus Christ!
There is no other Gospel.
There is no other God
There is no other Way but Jesus!

WHO COMFORTS US IN ALL OUR TRIBULATION, THAT WE MAY BE ABLE TO COMFORT THEM WHICH ARE IN ANY TROUBLE, BY THE COMFORT WHEREWITH WE OURSELVES ARE COMFORTED OF GOD.
2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4
IT GOOD TO KNOW WHEN WE ARE GOING THROUGH TWO THINGS:
WE CAN CRAWL UP IN THE FATHER’S ARMS AND HE MAKES EVERYTHING ALRIGHT
SECONDLY
BECAUSE WE HAVE TRIED IT AND KNOW HE DOESN’T FAIL TO COMFORT US, WE CAN COMFORT SOMEONE ELSE WHEN THEY ARE GOING THROUGH.
