The Greatest Right We Have

John 14:13-14:
-13: And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
-14:  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I {Jesus Christ} will do it.

John 15:16b: – …that whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you.

“The greatest right we have is the privilege to use the name of Jesus Christ. We can use his name in prayer and be assured of a positive answer, and we can use his name in the giving of thanks for God’s abundance. Believing in the name of Jesus Christ brings great things to pass in our lives. Using the name of Jesus Christ produces signs of encouragement for and to the individual believer, works miracles of loving comfort to our inner souls, and energizes wonders that exhort us to the worthy endeavors and exploits promised us in God’s Word.” ~LMJ~

Your Calling Was No Fluke, Accident or Mistake – It Is True!

“His calling was not a fluke, an accident, or a mistake. God loved you and called you from the beginning of time – it is true! According as he {God} hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love– Ephesians 1:4. God called, choosing us before the foundation of the world, and as we hear, recognize, and answer His calling by our believing, we will begin to notice that we do not incur His wrath, but rather, we can always stand before Him in fellowship, being holy and without blame and immersed in His unending love for us.” ~LMJ~

The Case for Casting Our Cares on God

“When I recall first hearing that I could cast all of my cares upon God, I first thought, ‘Why would I do such a thing as giving God something that I do not even want?’ That is a good question, and the answer is wonderful!

Casting our cares upon God is the will of God, for in doing so He can then go to work delivering us from all our cares. To cast is to deliberately pass it on with mental thought, like as if we were casting a fishing line into a particular spot on a lake where the fish are swimming. Do you know what else? When we cast deliberately, we expect to bring in a catch. It is the same with God; He would love nothing more than to return unto us the true desires of our hearts, and one key about ‘how to receive from God’ is by first casting our cares, then the receiving will come. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you– I Peter 5:7.” ~LMJ~

The Garden of His Delight

“Today we walk with the Father in the Garden of His delight wherein He is our sufficiency as He continues to deliver and honor us. He {you and I} shall call upon me {God}, and I will answer him: I will be with him in {or through} trouble; I will deliver him {from trouble}, and {I God will} honour him- Psalms 91:15. WOW – God honors us! We today are God’s spiritual Garden, for we are His habitation (Ephesians 2:22), living in and enjoying our heavenly Father’s own cultivating. He gently pulls out the weeds of doubts, worries, and fears, and increases our confidence, trust, and believing faith to commit ourselves to His healing Word.” ~LMJ~

The Call of Jesus

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me– John 10:27. When you answer the call of Jesus today, you allow him into your heart. When you hear His wonderful voice, you may recall how he has been calling you all along, even since your childhood! It certainly will bless his life to bless your life for allowing him into your heart as you begin dining together on the bread of life (God’s Word, if any man hear my voice {Jesus’}, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me- Revelation 3:20), and enjoying your close personal relationship with him who gave his utmost for you.” ~LMJ~
