This week's message: Are you faced with a storm? (Mk 4:35)
Storms are part of life. As long as we are alive in this world we will be faced with all kinds of storms.
What is your response when you are faced with a storm
When Jesus' disciples were faced with a life-threatening storm, they called upon Him! Do you?
If you refuse to talk to Jesus about the problems you are facing in life He can't help you.
Psalms 50:15 says: "Call unto Me in the day of trouble, and I will..." This is an instruction with a promise.
If you 'do' what the Word says, the Lord will intervene and through His power you can overcome the storm. When Jesus' disciples called upon Him, he rose up and rebuked the storm from the enemy. Everything calmed down.
Note:There are two kind of storms. Storms from the enemy and storms in our life because of disobedience. If this is the case we need to repent (have a change of mind).We need to ask the Lord to forgive us and help us to get inline with His Word.
Father God, I come to you in the Name of Jesus Christ.Thank you Lord for this time of fellowship. I turn to you for help. Father God, your Word says: " Call unto Me in the day of trouble and I will deliver you ..."
I therefore humble myself before You Lord and call unto Your name in this time of trouble.
Thank You for delivering me.Thank you Father God for being my stronghold and fortress. Thank you for being my place of safety ans security.Thank You for being my peace in the midst of this storm. Thank you that I can overcome this storm through Your strength and power. I lean on trust in and have confidence in You!
I glorify You Heavenly Father, in Jesus' Name Amen.
Enjoy you week!
Jesus didn't come for the perfect
Jesus came for people like you and me. People who need saving. The Scribes and Pharisees can be compared with the faultfinders and perfect people of our day. On facial value they have everything together, yet they're corrupted in heart and mind.
We see in the Word of God that these "perfect people" were not open to Jesus' teachings or miracles and were out to trick, discredit, persecute or kill Him.
It's the 'messed-up' bunch, who desperately needs saving that went to Jesus for healing. People who really needed healing. People who needed to be saved from oppression, disease,condemnation, pain or some kind of illness. If this is you - Jesus is willing to touch your life. (See Matthew 8)
Jesus never refused a sinner who came running to Him for healing or restoration. He would heal and restore them, because that was His mission. The same miracles what we read about in the Bible are for us today! Jesus is the same - yesterday, today, forever! (Heb 13:8)
Be restored, God is not angry at you
The Cross of Calvary. The very reason for the Cross of Calvary was to buy back what the enemy had stolen in Genesis.
The fall of man
When we accept Jesus as Lord in our life, the relationship that was stolen in Genesis is restored through the blood of Jesus Christ. God the Father becomes our Heavenly ABBA Father.(John 1:12)
God will always be waiting on us to return to Him. He is looking out for you right now, and He will keep looking at the horizon every day to see if His lost sons or daughters are coming home.
He is not angry at you! The new covenant is based on love. And the commandment of God is summarized in one word; LOVE. (Matt 22:37, 1 John 4:8)
Do you need clean slate?
Repentance. The Greek meaning of the word 'repentance' literally means to change the mind. Repentance is the realization in the mind of exactly where you are and that definite change is required.
When the prodigal son came to himself and started thinking about his current CIRCUMSTANCES in life and what he could do about it. He said to himself: 'I will go to my father'. He knew and acknowledged that change in his life was required. As the lost son started to change his thinking and attitude (repented) he started to walk in newness of life.
His father was not angry with him. As he saw his son from a distance away, he ran to him, and kissed him, welcoming him home. His father was moved with pity and tenderness. The once lost son confessed his wrongful actions, and was fully restored in his fathers' house.
Repentance means to turn from one way of life to a complete opposite one (This is an awesome picture of God the Father running to us as we turn to Him - Luke 15:11, Jam 4:8, Acts 3:19)
If you had not yet returned home, know that your Heavenly Father is looking out for you - watching the horizon to see if you are returning home.
He is waiting for 'YOU'!
Turn and go to your Heavenly Father here
Scripture: Luke 15:10 Even so, I tell you, there is joy among and in the presence of the angels of God over one [especially] wicked person who repents (changes his mind for the better, heartily amending his ways, with abhorrence of his past sins) Amp.
From atheist to Christian
Young John Newton called himself an atheist, and his life demonstrated his lack of belief in God. Even the coarsest sailors aboard his slave-trading ship could not stand his filthy speech. He brutalized the male slaves and sexually abused the women, and he prodded other sailors to do the same. The ship's captain finally put him ashore on the coast of Africa, and there he became a servant of slavers.
Finally rescued by another merchant ship, Newton once again fouled the ship with his presence. In a drunken stupor he almost plunged overboard, and the captain wished that he had. Then, amazingly in the midst of a vicious ocean storm in 1748, God touched his heart. Years after his remarkable conversion, Newton commented, "I see no reason why the Lord singled me out for mercy…unless it was to show that with him nothing is impossible."
The fool who had said in his heart that there was no God was now transformed. He became famous throughout England, both as a preacher and a writer of hymns. Without a doubt, the best-known hymn of this former atheist is the following:
“Amazing grace! how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind but now I see”
- JOHN NEWTON -

Jesus can only be your Saviour if you need saving...do you?
Have your self-worth, yourself concept been distorted by lies? Have your relationship with God been destroyed, or are you filled with blame, shame and guilt? - Let go of that weight, and burdens and be restored and reconciled to God through Jesus. Worry has a weight (Psalms 55:22), when inviting the Living Word (Jesus) into your life, making Him the Lord of your life, you literally cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and, and the promise follows, He will sustain you! He will never allow the righteous (those who are justified, set apart and made right by the blood of Christ) to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail). Do you still want to carry those burdens - blame ,shame or guilt alone?
The Word of God gives a clear path to healing, restoration, and eternal life.
Just like John Newton's story above, we all have done certain things (own personal sin) that are displeasing to God, which makes us deserving of punishment. And, since all our sins are ultimately against an eternal God, only an eternal punishment is sufficient. There is in on other words bad news and Good News: The bad news: "The wages of sin is death, ( but the Good News), the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" Jesus says: "I am the way the truth and life... (John 14:6, Romans 6:23).

Jesus is LOVE
When Martin Luther was busy printing Bibles, a small piece of paper fell on the ground and said –
"For God so loved the world that he gave…”
His daughter picked it up pondering about the words. As the days went on her mother saw a change in her child's behaviour. She decided to ask her what caused this change in her life. She replied, Mommy, I found this piece of paper where Daddy is printing: “For God so loved the world that He gave…” She asked her child – so what did He give?
The following life-transforming words came out of her mouth -
“I don’t know what He gave mommy, but that He loved so much, that he was still thinking of giving”
Whatever you are going through, remember, when God gave His Son, He made provision for every need. His heart is still to do more than what you could ever think or imagine - Ephesians 3:20
Don’t say 'no-way' because He is the way. If you allow Him, He will be your Shepherd, your guide, your bravery, your invincible army, your abundant supply, because He IS the great “I Am”.
Come to Him just as you are. With all of your baggage.
The greatest form of neighborly love is to introduce someone to Jesus. Jesus said: "Go and preach the Good News to everyone in the world..." (Mark 16:15)
