Jesus is the only Way to God (John 14:6).

The only Door to enter (John 10:7-9).

The only Salvation to receive (Acts 4:12).

The only Living Bread to feast upon (John 6:35).

The only Truth to know (John 14:6).

The only Light to walk in (John 8:12).

The only Vine to abide in (John 15:1).

The only Life to live (John 14:6).

The only Good Shepherd to follow  (John 10:14).

The only Sure Foundation to build upon   (1 Corinthians 3:11).

The only Mediator to call upon  (1 Timothy 2:5).

The only Lord to serve  (1 Corinthians 8:6).

Look to Jesus for everything…God has simplified our life of faith in His dear Son. Severing us from all other sources, alluring us away from all other dependencies, and weaning us from all self-confidence, He shuts us up to Christ above, that Christ might be all and in all.” –Octavius Winslow

Each of us should carry a thankful heart for every “yes” we receive from God as an answer to prayer. We can also be thankful He doesn’t say “yes” to prayers that are not in agreement with His will—prayers that are based on our wisdom and not on His; that would bring leanness to our souls; that would put us in the wrong place; that would make us ineffective; that would bring us into wrong relationships; that would cause our hearts to cool; that would keep us from His highest and rob us of His best.

I know not by what methods rare,

But this I know, God answers prayer.

I know He gives His pledged word

Which tells me prayer is always heard,

And will be answered soon or late,

Though often it is hard to wait.

I know not if the blessing sought

Will come in just the way I thought;

I leave my prayer with Him alone,

Whose will is wiser than my own,

Assured that He will grant my quest,

Or send an answer far more blest.
(-Unknown)

And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us.” 1 John 5:14 (AMP)

For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness.Psalm 107:9

The potter can take a lump of clay and form it into a vessel that holds a pint of water. The potter can also take the same lump of clay and form it into a vessel that holds twice the amount of water. This is done by the potter’s skillful hands as he reshapes the vessel to increase its capacity to hold more.

Do you sense the hands of your Heavenly Potter shaping and stretching you as His vessel? He is doing it to increase your capacity to receive more of His fullness—His life, His love, His strength, His power, His grace.

The souls which thirst for His promises may evermore be filled from His abundance.” –Gelasian

Not a prayer, not an act of faithfulness in your calling, not a self-denying or kind word or deed; not a weariness or painfulness endured patiently; not a duty performed; not a temptation resisted; but it enlarges the whole soul for the endless capacity of the love of God.” – E.B. Pusey

Without Jesus’ words we would be witnesses with nothing to say; without Jesus’ authority we would be ambassadors with nothing to do; without Jesus’ love we would be servants with nothing to give.

Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 (NLT)

Jesus is our future. He has called us to follow Him with a heart of faith and a life of obedience. In good times, in troubled times, or in uncertain times, all our times are in His hands. Our future is as bright as the promises of God; as hopeful as the faithfulness of God; as secure as the character of God; as abounding as the grace of God; as abundant as the love of God. He wants us to occupy until He comes.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20- 21 (NLT)

REgeneration is not about reforming a life, but transforming it. REgeneration brings to the heart something that was never there before. Through REgeneration, God makes all things new—new life, new hope, new heart, new goals, new purpose, new love. In REgeneration, the life of God, through the person of the Holy Spirit, enters within you, bringing about a new birth. The life of the Spirit takes you from where you never could be, and brings you into all God created you to be— turning your darkness into light, your emptiness into completeness, your spiritual death into spiritual life.

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration.” Titus 3:5 NKJV

O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.
Psalm 34:3 (KJV)

Self-righteousness, self-justification and self-sufficiency do not magnify the Lord’s sacrifice, redemption, and atonement for us on the cross.

It is only through brokenness, humility, and repentance that we can fully magnify who the Lord is and what He has done in our lives. For it is out of our poverty that we magnify His riches; it is out of our smallness that we magnify His greatness; it is out of our frailty that we magnify His power; it is out of our need that we magnify His fullness; it is out of our flaws that we magnify His perfection; it is out of our deficiency that we magnify His abundance; it is out of our unworthiness that we magnify His mercies; it is out of our imperfection that we magnify His beauty; it is out of our weakness that we magnify His strength; it is out of our insufficiency that we magnify His grace.

God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)

In Your unfailing love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling.”  Exodus 15:13 (NIV)

I believe my life is in God’s hands and keeping. I believe He has a plan and purpose for my life and that He is leading me in a path that will fulfill that plan and purpose. I believe it is a good plan, a right plan, and the best plan. I believe there is not a better, higher, or wiser way for me to live or way for me to follow. I believe God knows exactly what He is doing and that He will bring things into my life at the exact time they are needed. I believe He wants me to follow Him with praise on my lips for who He is, with thanks in my heart for what He does, and with obedience in my steps for what He asks me to do.
