Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

A Packet of Seeds
Sow Your Seeds and Expect a Harvest
Today at Church - Guest, Brother
Prapai brought an inspiring message with reminders of who we are today because
of Jesus. I gleaned and bring you this digested sermon.
We hear of great men of God
who slip and fall, yet we know God is the restorer.
Adam and Eve messed up big
time, but in His mercy, God gave them a package of seeds to plant and harvest,
as they were cast out of the garden.
Sometimes we fall short, and
it is time to return to the cross.God
is developing us and changing us from day to day, one step at a time.
This is the season to
overcome.Each season with its changes
has a different color.It is time to
change and be ready for the next season in our spiritual walk.
Peter was a coward, just like
us, but he was the one who stepped out of the boat.We reason and question, should I get out of
the boat or should I wait just a minute.
God has not called us to
worry, but we are called to trust.
Peter began to sink, but what
he did is what we should do in time of trouble.He called out “Help me Lord.”Peter had faith, but it was supported by his head and not his heart.
God knows all about our
shortcomings and all the stuff that is going on in our lives.
We can overcome by using
God’s Word and our testimony.
The soldiers were coming to
get Jesus, and Peter took out his sword and cut off the ear of one of the
soldiers.Jesus loved the soldiers and
he picked up the ear and put it right back on - - healing the man.
Jesus loves us when we are
up, he loves us when we are down, and even when we are a bit crazy.
We say, “I can’t do
this.”Hey aren’t you listening?There is a break through coming.Don’t worry about what you don’t have, but
rejoice and be thankful for what you do have.
At Pentecost, Peter said, “I
am going to tell you what I know.”That
is what we can do.Tell others what God
has done for us.
Are you looking ahead or do
you want to get back in the boat?Are
you tired of doing life your way with results that are lacking?
With God the net will be full
and not break.
At the recovery meetings the members
say, “Hi my name is (blank) and I am an alcoholic or an addict.
But we need to understand that I am NOT that
old person any more.I was a sinner, but
now I am saved by grace.
At church we gather for
prayers and we are around people.Then
it is time to leave and we feel alone.Understand we are NOT alone.Jesus is in us, and has promised to never leave or forsake us.
People are hungry and thirsty
and we have the Bread and Water of Life to share.
Let us go forth with our
testimony and believe God to bring the increase.Sow your packet of seed that is in your hand
and expect God to yield a harvest.
