I Responded…

It is with immeasurable love that I send this message to each of you.   
I like how when John sent his disciples to Jesus to ask, “Are you really the one we are waiting for, or shall we keep on looking,”  that instead of saying something like, “Yeah, I’m top dog,” knowing that John was a man who knew the Scriptures (prophecy) and being one of immeasurable humility, Jesus simply said, “Go back to John and tell him about the miracles you’ve seen me do- the blind people I’ve healed, and the lame people now walking without help, and the cured lepers, and the deaf who hear, and the dead raised to life; and tell him about my preaching the Good News to the poor.  Then give him this message, ‘Blessed are those who don’t doubt me” (Matthew 11:3-6 TLB).
I also like where Jesus says, “If any of you really determines to do God’s will, then you will certainly know whether my teaching is from God or is merely my own” (John 7:17). 
If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord” (Romans 14:8 NLT)
For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring‘ (Acts 17:28 NIV).

He tells us, “I have it all planned out-plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for” (Jeremiah 29:11 MSG).
Let us join together and rejoice in Christ, agree together and say, “Glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of-infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes” (Ephesians 3:20 TLB). 

Let’s also remember that as Christians who desire only to share the love of Christ that everywhere we go we own it (the atmosphere – we rule over demonic powers – over everything that is against God). It is comforting to know that as we delight to do His will (Psalm 40:8) that we cannot leave this planet any sooner than our mission is finished for God on this earth. 

Please be encouraged! If we can receive it our best days are ahead! Let’s ask God for big things and give Him all the praise!

For His Glory,
