There is Power in the Word of God

My sister-in-law, Angelene Jacob, is a prolific writer and I have created several kindle books from the various writings which she has sent to me.

Today, I want to share with you Angelene’s There is Power in the Word of God.

The Word of God – the Bible – has great power. There is  Power in the Word of God will provide you with many wonderful truths, from which you will greatly benefit if you take the time to inwardly digest and use His Words – The Word of God – in your daily life.

There is Power in the Word of God (Kindle edition) costs only £1.99 and may be downloaded from:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00G5H4TN6

This book is not intended as a replacement for your normal Bible study, rather it simply highlights certain Biblical passages which have great Power as you speak them – and read them.

Few of the Bible texts quoted in this book actually stand alone. Our intention is not for you to bypass reading the Bible on a daily basis.

Please take your time and look up each relevant text in your Bible (whichever version you may use) and be sure to read the scriptures before and after the texts mentioned in this book.

Most of the Bible Texts in this book come from the King James Version but very similar writings – even if slightly different Words are used – will be contained within all Bibles.

If you have a Kindle I would greatly encourage you to download Angelene’s book and to set aside some time each day to read a few of the Biblical texts in There is Power in the Word of God. In so doing you will be mightily energised and receive great comfort and inner strength.

May God add His blessing to each one of His words……………………..

God Bless

The Power of God’s Word

Lord, help me to know you more. Enable me to understand my relationship with you through Jesus Your Son. Help me, Jesus, to understand all that you have accomplished for me on the cross.

Thank you for suffering and your death that saved me from the consequences of my wrong thoughts and actions.

I am eternally grateful that after you were crucified, you rose from the dead to prove that you are who you are. Your words and promises I hear and see without fail.

As you knock on the door of my heart. Teach me to hear your voice and open that door.

I receive you. I submit my life daily to you.

I declare that you are Lord over every area of my life, both now and forever.

Thank you for helping me to see who you really are.

Thank you for forgiving me all of my sins and for giving me a new beginning in my life.

Thank you, Holy Spirit, for helping me to live the right way; to show you my love for you, Jesus, by living in obedience to your daily commands.

In Jesus Name

AMEN.

POWER IN GOD’S WORD

Revelation 3: 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into Him and dine with him and he with me.

Acts 4:12 Nor is there is salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

May the Blessings of our Lord, Jesus Christ, go with you now and for every day in your life

The Peace That Passeth All Understanding

I am the Lord your God,
… who teaches you what is best for you,
who directs you in the way you should go.
If only you had paid attention to my commands,
your peace would have been like a river,
your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Isaiah 48:17 – 18

In the New Testament, we find many similar themes about peace.

Jesus told his disciples quite bluntly that they would have all kinds of trouble in the world, but that ” in him” they would have perfect peace.

On the one hand they were presented with the rather disconcerting prospect of trouble, whilst on the other hand there was a calm reassuring words of peace.

There was no idle promise, or platitudes, that everything would smooth sailing, but neither were the disciples given the impression that they were about to be cast adrift in a merciless sea of overwhelming currents.

Their problem, which is exactly the same as ours today, was to discover how to balance out living in the world with also living in Christ.

This has been our Christian dilemma ever since. To live in Christ apart and separate from the world has been the approach of monastics and fundamentalists for centuries. To live in the world without reference to living in Christ has been the tendency of many professing believers who show little, if any,sign of spiritual life and vitality.

To identify with the society that rejects and repudiates the uniqueness of Christ and his principles is an ongoing temptation against which Jesus’ disciples always had to struggle. As we do today?

As Christians, we find ourselves continuously exposed to society’s ills, tainted by its pollution, challenged by its needs, and touched by its hopelessness; thus isolation has not been an easy possibility, how much we may wish for it.

But how to live in it and triumph through it has always been our problem.

The answer is to be found in our ability to practise the teachings of Christ, as opposed to the principles of secularised society, and to draw on the resources of Christ’s indwelling presence, rather than the mechanical and organisational resources provided by society, however enlightened and concerned.
