Jesus came to set us free from being slaves to sin! If you are not free in Christ, (accepting Him as your Lord and Savior) then you are a slave to sin. John 8: 23-36 tells us that we should be pleasing our Heavenly Father everyday and speaking words that bring life to others. As we continue with Him and in His word then are we His disciples and we shall know the truth and the truth will make us free!
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Rejoice means to praise God or to celebrate with praise. Rejoicing in the Lord gets our mind off of ourselves and puts our focus on Jesus. Paul and Silas rejoiced in the Lord even though their hands and feet were in stocks and chains and they were in prison. When we are rejoicing we are free from fear and worry. Rejoice in the Lord and kept you focus on Him!
Ephesians 5:1 tells us to be followers or imitators of God. You can create perfect peace in your home when you have and develop a relationship with your Father God. Micah 6:8 tells us to do justice or what is right, love mercy (show compassion) and to walk humbly before our God. Create that perfect peace in your home by following God and His plan for your life.
Isaiah 26:3 New King James Version (NKJV) You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. We need to keep our mind focused on Jesus. We look to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith. When we remained focused on Him we can have peace in these days of chaos.
In this day and age when Satan is out to kill, steal and destroy you, we must keep our mind renewed to Truth. When you are double minded you are unstable. The Word of God is truth! Jesus is truth! We must determine to walk in truth even when the rest of the world is not. Ephesians 5:14-20, Walk as a wise person, redeem the time, bless people and preach the Gospel of Jesus!
In today's world we need the power of the Holy Spirit. We can be endued with the same power as Jesus. Jesus said in Acts 1:8 that we would receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us. That power is for us to live the Christian life and be a witness to others. We are no match for the devil without the power of the Holy Spirit. Be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit today!
We have been talking about double mindedness and being unstable. Learn how to be stable in an unstable world.
James 1:1-8 tells us to count it all joy when we go through test and trials. Those test and trials works patience in us and if we do lack wisdom we are to ask God for wisdom in faith not doubting or wavering. When we are double minded or wavering we are unstable in all of our ways. Seek God's wisdom in all situations and be unwavering in Him!
Joshua 24:15, As for me and my house we will serve the Lord! Raise your children to know and serve God. Build your family upon the Rock of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is a firm foundation. Be an influence and a role model in your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren's lives. As a family unit serve and worship the Lord together.
When we have Jesus, we have everything. We are safe and secure in Him. You simply trust in Him. You do not have to worry or have fear when you are secure in Him. Romans 10:13, for whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God is good and the devil is bad. Just like all other sickness and disease COVID-19 comes straight from the pit of hell. Isaiah 43:1-3 tells us not to fear, God has redeemed us and He calls us by name. During this crisis respond in faith not fear, respond in truth not lies. Take this opportunity to draw nearer to God.
Faith and hope stabilize your life. Romans 15:13 says, Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. When we have faith and hope we accept God's Word as truth and trust in Him. Take this momentary time of affliction to infuse yourself in God and trust Him.
Matthew 27:50-51 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split.... When Jesus died on the cross and the veil was torn from top to bottom, no longer was the presence of God hidden from mankind. Now we can have the presence of God continually in our lives because of the precious blood of Jesus.
The people cried Hosanna in Matthew 21:9. Hosanna means, please save us. It means, praise God! One cry is asking for help the other cry of Hosanna is showing gratitude for what God has done. On this Palm Sunday lets cry out to God for help then praise Him for helping us!

Jesus, I ask You to forgive me of my sins. I want You to come and live in my heart. You are my Lord and Savior. I believe You died for my sins and arose from the dead and with my mouth I confess You as my Savior.
Thank You for saving me, amen!
Romans 10:9-10, that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
