In His Praise — February 11, 2018

Have you ever thought about the power words? Words can built up or words can tear down. Words can help or hinder and words can heal or hurt. The power of the spoken word is mighty and lasting. We as human beings have quite a responsibility in the way we use our words.

In the New Testament, James 3 talks about “taming the tongue” and discusses the difficulty in doing so. Most people would probably agree that saying the right thing all the time is just about impossible. But with the Lord’s help we can improve our efforts to use our words to build up, to help and to heal those that have been hurt.

It is encouraging to know that God can use our words to help others.

Rev. Nickles talked today about another kind of word — the Bible, God’s Holy Word. God’s Word is mighty and powerful! At the mention of Jesus name, Satan flees. God’s Word can bring peace where there has been conflict, hope where there has been disappointment, joy where there has been sadness and courage where there has been fear. God’s Word is the strongest weapon that Christians have to stand against evil. It gives us authority and power over the devil. Ephesians 6:10-20 tells us to put on the whole armor of God. This includes being grounded in His Word.

It is not only encouraging to know God’s word, but it is the best news to know that we can boldly proclaim it in the name of Jesus!

With so many bad things going on in the world, it is a comfort to know that there is a higher power that has overcome evil. There is a song by Claire Cloninger and Morris Chapman called “Jesus, Your Name”. The words of this wonderful song remind us that Jesus has power to heal, to give sight (both physically and spiritually), and to free from sin. It reminds us that Jesus is almighty and holy, He is to be honored above all others. One part of the lyrics that is especially meaningful says, ‘Jesus your name can break every stronghold!’

It is not only good news to know that our Savior has this power, but it is also comforting to know that He loves us enough to use His power for our good. All we need to do is trust Him.

He is worthy of our praise for ever!

In His Praise – July 23, 2017

What great news we have to share today!! Satan is defeated and he has no power over Christians! Why? Because when Jesus died on the cross and rose again to life He defeated death and sin. He covered our sins and purchased our salvation. When we accept this salvation we are saved and sealed for eternity.

We have been given power in the name of Jesus – power to resist evil (James 4:7), power over sickness (Isaiah 53:5), power over circumstances (Psalms 46:1), power to live a victorious life here on earth (I Corinthians 15:57)!

Jesus words in John 16:33 say “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart I have overcome the world.” Hardships may come, we may have disappointments and pain, troubles may surround us but we can never be taken away from our Father who loves us. He has given us power and the victory is ours to claim!

Praise God for this wonderful news!
