Knowing Him Is Eternal

My Daughter bought me a book titled, "Moments of Peace for the Morning" for my birthday. I wanted to share what I read this morning. It ministered to me and I hope it will minister to you as well.

This is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. (John 17:3 ESV).
There will be times in your life when your only source of comfort will be God. It will be through worship, prayer, and Bible study that you gain the energy, wisdom, and hope to make it through the day.
This is not a trial, this is the goal-to need no earthly encouragement because God has become everything to you. Your comfort, peace, and joy all come from God. It is during these times that God replaces your earthly nature with a love and longing for the eternal.
Rejoice, God is preparing you for eternal life by changing your perspective and helping you to know him better.
Build yourselves up in your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. (Jude 1:20-21 ESV).
I thank you, Father, that learning about you today is about loving you in countless tomorrows, I love you and praise your wonderful name. In Jesus name Amen!

I am so grateful for the comfort and encouragement He gives me. There are times when only He will suffice. His Word, love, comfort, the Holy Spirit - I need it all. Bless you!

That is a great book! This did minister to me...deep down inside, my spirit knows that my ONLY comfort is God. He's my Jehovah Jireh (my provider). I know so well that the joy of the Lord is my strength! He is my everything, and it sometimes takes someone to be taken to the end of themselves to realize this.
Thank you for this incredible truth:) God bless you Tamela!!

I learn each and everyday that God is the only one whom I can trust. He is the source of my strength, comfort and joy. He is my peace. He is my deliverer. He is my restorer. He is my provider. God is my everything. Thank you for posting this. It was an inspiration and reminder of just how much God means to me. Blessings!

Hi Tamela,
That is a nice gift to receive. The devotional reading seems short and to the point without cutting corners that rob the effect of the reading. Very nice.

I'll join you in that Amen!! What a wonderful gift!
The eternal God provides those in Christ with everlasting life.

Day to day can be difficult, but I ask the Lord that I will not waste one day.

Thanks, Tamela. You know I had never heard the name Tamela until I came to this blog, but the name makes sense.

That has been the case with me many times.

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
