The Greatest Gift

’Tis the season is used to indicate a particular time of the year.

The season:

This is the season of the Lord Jesus’ birth. The reason we celebrate that birth. A time when the whole world was changed forever. A time when the Savior of the world came to the earth in the most vulnerable, humble fashion — as a baby.

The reason:

But Jesus didn’t stay a baby. He grew and gave His life as the Savior of the world that anyone who would believe on Him would be saved from eternal death, saved from hell. A season that He died for our sins that we could be forgiven. All we have to do is believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths the Lord Jesus, and He will fill us with His Holy Spirit, and save us from being separated from God forever. A season to remember what is really important.

The presence:

For many, this time of year is all about presents and parties. It’s sad to me that Christmas has become so commercialized that the real meaning has been lost. It should be about the greatest gift ever given. Jesus — Immanuel — God with us. To be grateful and thankful for His sacrifice. Let us never mistake parties and presents as the reason for the season.

Let us all reflect on our lives and make sure the real reason for the season is Jesus in our lives.

Allegiance

Think about The Pledge of Allegiance, especially where it says, One nation under God.

A beacon of light:

Scripture teaches in Amos 3:3 How can two walk together unless they be agreed? God brought people from every nation of the world to make and create America — a place that would be a beacon of light to the world that God is real and that He sent Jesus to save us; a light that other nations would envy; a light that when a nation honors God, He will cause it, them to prosper; a nation like no other nation; one nation under God; “one nation.”

My people:

Regardless of where people are from, when they come here, they become American. America was birthed. God took people from every nation to create one nation where people honor and serve God. Isn’t it sad, especially in the last 12 years, that people don’t want to be one nation under God! They want to be individuals who claim they are working for a group of people (my people) instead of what God intended (My people).

Power:

Now, instead of agreement, we have disagreement. Where there is agreement, there is power; where there is a lack of agreement, there is a lack of power. America is losing its power because we are so divided. The constitution, I believe given by God to be the law of the land, is being set aside to fit individual needs, not best for all, best for some only.

We must pray and ask God to forgive us and expose the darkness that is attempting to destroy America and the lives of people who live here. We must serve God — His way!

The Highest Way

Have you ever stopped to think about the fact that God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts?

Wrong thoughts:

God says, My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts. My ways are far beyond anything you could imagine (Isa. 55:8-9). What we think at times is wrong. We at times think too small. We just flat out think wrong thoughts about God at times.

Trusting:

We trust when we can’t see anything happening. We trust when we don’t feel anything working in our bodies. We continue to believe God is working in our lives. We continue to believe for healing even when we don’t feel anything or see anything changing. His ways, His thoughts are greater than ours. Why is that? Because He knows everything. Everything! So, we must learn to trust.

Reaping:

So many ask why this happened or that thing happened. What we learn is that this is a never-ending question. I believe we need to turn the whys into trust. God is God, and He knows everything. We trust when we don’t understand. We yield to His word regardless of how we feel or what we are experiencing. We don’t grow weary in well doing because His word says if we don’t, we will reap a harvest of doing good.

When everything in life is screaming, It’s not working, nothing is happening, we continue to trust and believe and never allow ourselves to grow weary.

Just a thought,
