"Fully Rely On God" from 2 Chronicles 16

Image
Be the FROG - fully rely on God.

Southern and Eastern part of Israel at this point are on war. Asa is on the Southern part.

Asa at this point don't rely on God for his sickness. He seek the help of the physicians rather than God. Trusting in the arm of the flesh than on the Lord.

For instance, we trust more in our money and food rather than to God.

Be consistent in our dependency on God.


Charisma - God's grace working on us.
Charismania - man's effort imitating God's grace.

Asa also made a mistake in asking help in non believers. He suffered from a serious foot disease but he never ask the help of God. The Bible criticizes his consultations with physicians because in those days "physicians" were pagans healers who used rituals that conflicted with God's law.

God will strengthen us if we fully rely on the Lord. Don't worry about tomorrow.

Psalm 37:40 The LORD helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they t…

"He Is Risen from The Dead" from Matthew 28

We need to know the importance and highlight of the Easter Sunday. Is it Christ or the egg?
Be reminded that Jesus told His disciples to Stop doubting.

Christ Resurrection is not man's effort but God's.

God will use the foolishness of this world to shame the wise.

Matthew 16:21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

John 2:19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."
It is a sin of omission if we forget the message of God.

1 Corinthians 15:4-6
that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas,[a] and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though…

"Be Sensitive to The Leading of The Holy Spirit" from 2 Chronicles 15

Image
The meaning of Azariah - Whom Jehovah helps

Seek God's kingdom and righteousness then everything will follow.

In the book Colossians - teaches that whatever we keep on thinking - that is what you ?idolize?

From first thing in the morning to evening what are our thoughts? Is it the cell phone? The person you're in love with? Or the Bible?

The emphasis of the Bible is to keep you from sin but be aware that sin will also keep you from the Bible.

Little by little, before we knew it because of the increase of the wickedness we become lukewarm.
If we don't go back to the basic it can happen to all of us.
It's so important to bring our own Bible.

Learn to study on our own in our devotion. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

Do not give up and be strong. Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power don't depend on your own.
(Don't let your hands be weak, don't throw the towel.)

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a har…

"God of The Needy" from Matthew 9:27-38

Image
The purpose of this book is to let us know that Jesus is the Messiah and Son of God.

Part of God's nature of God is omnipotent and also the God of the needy all we have to do is cry out to Him.
The word believe it to have faith and to put in trust with all of your heart and mind.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
Another supporting for Ephesians 2:8-9 read this post God is more Real than Hell

Sometimes we don't know how to pray and what to pray. But God understand even in th sight.
Jeremiah 32:20 You performed signs and wonders in Egypt and have continued them to this day, in Israel and among all mankind, and have gained the renown that is still yours.

"He Came For The Hopeless" from Matthew 9:1-13

Image
Revelation 22:11 "Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy."

Luke 5:20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, "Friend, your sins are forgiven."
Our sins are forgiven

Colossians 1:12-14
12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Christ has the authority to forgive our sins as He came for the helpless to forgive our sins.

The Lord knows the heart.
Hebrews 4:13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Don't pretend that you don't need His forgiveness. We are all helpl…
