Visalia First December 16, 2018 ==================================== 12/16/2018 Visalia First: Do You Hear What I Hear By: Mike D. Robertson Lead Pastors | Mike & Karen Robertson http://bible.com/events/530630 ==================================== Why These Shepherds? 1. These shepherds were… More
Maybe I feel as I do, because I havent been feeling well today….and I am tired.
When I consider who I was before I became a believer in December of 1989, and look at who I am today…..29 years later, I see truth in this verse. Not that I quit sinning on December 31, 1989, actually, if I “classified” my sins, I would say some of my worst sinning was done after that day. I still sin. I am still selfish, and think it is about me.. (thinking of the man that cut me off yesterday), But I do see a gradual progression of change in my life. I am no where near perfect, but am being perfected by the Holy Spirit. I am thankful that I am forgiven.
I pray this for my children too…along with safety… God does not wish that anyone would perish….
Today, I also pray that God would move in the lives of believers at VLCS…(as well as non believers). That it would not be by chance that people stay or leave..but that you alone would direct our steps…
Lori just finished a Runtastic run of 3.4 mi in 40m 10s
This interval progression on fitstar kicked my butt!
Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
Romans 8:34 NIV
He died, and intercedes for us. I don’t need to fight…I dont need to fight when I am weak. I dont need to fight when I am strong. I simply need to trust Him.
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Luke 6:37 NIV
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43:19 NIV
They’re are times I feel as though I am in the wasteland. But focusing on feeding my faith, not my fears, reminds me of the many streams God has created in wastelands.
