IPhone Compatible Scriptures for Your New Year!

While we pray that your New Year will be a blessed and prosperous one, we are aware that God never promised us a life without adversity. He said in this life you will have trouble, but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world (John 16:33). Jesus said in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." 
Here are a few Emergency Numbers from Scripture for 2014 to help get you through your "going through." Put these numbers in your iPad, iPhone, your Smart phone, and on every electronic communication device.
When in sorrow, call John 14
When you have sinned, call Psalm 51
When you worry, call Matthew 6:19-34
When you are in danger, call Psalm 91
When you need faith, call Hebrews 11
When you feel down, call Romans 8:31
When you want peace and rest, call Matthew 11:25-30
When the world seems bigger than God, call Psalm 90
When your pocketbook/wallet is empty, call Psalm 37
When you are lonely and fearful, call Psalm 23
When you become bitter and critical, call 1 Corinthians 13
When you need help getting along with people, call Romans 12
When you are depressed, call Psalm 27
When people seem unkind, call John 15
In 2014, let the Word of God give you what you need when you need it! Have a blessed new year!
Remember, it is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus saves!

This Joy I Have!

How is your joy on this Word-filled Wednesday? Joy is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). As we grow in our relationship with God, we should bear much fruit, including joy. The story of Mary's visit with her cousin Elizabeth teaches us about joy. Elizabeth told Mary "As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy" (Luke 1:44). What is important here is that both mother and baby responded to Mary's voice. At the sound of Mary's voice, baby John, "leaped for joy." The Bible says we can know the tree by the fruit it bears. (Matt. 12:33). The fruit of Elizabeth's womb contained the future heralder of the coming King, and in the presence of God, the unborn Savior of the world (pre-natal, don't miss that, yet God), baby John received by way of the Holy Spirit on the job training as he leaps, not for fear or trepidation, but for joy! And Elizabeth was six months pregnant at the time. John the Baptist says this about himself near the end of his ministry of repentance and baptism, "The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. He (Jesus) must become greater. I must become less" (John 3:29-30).

The Scriptures tell us John the Baptist was joyful his entire life, from the womb to the tomb. In fact, the angel of the Lord appeared to John's father, Zechariah saying, "Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John. He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord" (Luke 1:13-15). Although John the Baptist had some difficult days, and was beheaded, his joy was centered in doing the will of God. John was a voice crying in the wilderness. He prepared the way for Jesus Christ (John 1:23) How is your joy today? Don't let the devil steal your joy. The joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah: 8:10). Take joy with you to work, to school, and to Bible Study. Take joy with you when you visit family and friends this Christmas. Joy to the world! The Lord is come. Let earth receive her King! This joy I have the world didn't give it to me, and the world can't take it away!
