Meditate with Power!


Transferred by Jesus!


Philippians 1:6  For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son. 


Meditate on God’s Word!  Did you find God or did He find you? For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins. Colossians 1:11-14  God’s Word indicates that God sought you long before you ever knew Him or were even born. For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 20 God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake. I Peter 1:18-19  T


he reasons this concept is so important will determine how hard you work to keep your salvation or how oftern you meditate on the wonder of what God has done for you. It will also determine how much you focus on the law and the commandments or how much you search to understand the wonder and power of God’s grace. When we were controlled by our old nature,  sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit. Romans 7:5-6. 



The power in our life now comes from God’s Holy Spirit and meditating on what Jesus’s sacrifice really means for us in our lives. The law is dead in our lives and it by relying on the Holy Spirit and God’s Word that we are truly set free.  Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:20-21 Let Jesus free you today and transfer you as a believer from a life of works to a life of the power of God’s grace.

Meditate with Power!


Forgiven and Kept by God!


Philippians 1:6  I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.  


Meditate on God’s Word!  The moment you trusted in Jesus by faith, God made a promise to you that will never be taken away until He takes you home.  We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy,12 always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. 13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins. Colossians 1:11-14  


God has begun a good work within you through Jesus to change your life forever. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. Colossians 1:19-20. You have been reconciled back to God, forgiven and now justified before God.  Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. Colossians 1:22  T



oday is a good day to rest and to meditate on what God has done for you. I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. Philippians 1:9  Give thanks that what God has given you will never be taken away. This is God’s promise to you!

Kept by God’s Power!


I Peter 1:4 We have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.


Meditate on God’s Word!  What an amazing thought that what God began in your life is sealed away in heaven and in your heart, guaranteed by God. Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy, for you have been my partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now. And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:3-6. 


Jesus taught that the new covenant would abolish the old covenant and that the ministry of the Holy Spirit would dramatically change for the believer.  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.[f] John 14:16-17 Once Jesus was resurrected into heaven everything would change for the believer. The Old Testament practices of keeping the law and animal sacrifices would be abolished.. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, 4 and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. I Peter 1:3-4 


The Importance and power of Jesus’s death and resurrection would forever change how we think about God’s love for us because of what Jesus did for all who believe. Because of this oath, Jesus is the one who guarantees this better covenant with God. 23 There were many priests under the old system, for death prevented them from remaining in office. 24 But because Jesus lives forever, his priesthood lasts forever. 25 Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. Hebrews 7:22-25  We are forever sealed and forgiven because of Jesus. Rest in these promises and know how much God loves you today!

Rest in God’s Promise & Power!


John 10:29 For my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else.  No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. 


Meditate on God’s Word!  What if you had no fear of what would happen when you die that God’s promises were forever. Well they are! My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, 29 for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else.[d] No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. 30 The Father and I are one.” John 10:27-30 


It is time for believers to learn how to rest and relax in God’s promises and not man’s interpretation of always worrying about losing something that God gave you because He loves you. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. I Peter 1:3-4  If you believe in the Bible and God’s promises it is time to rest in what Jesus did for you when He went to the cross for the sins of mankind.  It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 20 God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake.21 Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory.22 You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. I Peter 1:19-22 



Meditate on these promises and rest in God’s love for you and share and show that love to others. For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. 24 As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. 25 But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the Good News that was preached to you. I Peter 1:23-25 Take God at His Word and relax and rest in His promises to you!

Loved & Adopted by God!


Ephesians 1:3  All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.


Meditate on God’s Word!  The depth and power of God’s love is almost beyond description.  Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:4-5  


Jesus told His disciples and you today how much He loves you. You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other. John 15:16-17 Jesus showed us the depth of His love for mankind by fulfilling God’s plan of redemption. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.  John 15:13-15 



God loved you before time began, choose you and now has redeemed you through Jesus. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.[b] He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:5-8  Get lost in the love of God and you never know what God will do in your life. It is the best place to be!

All May Come!


Romans 10:12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.


Meditate on God’s Word!  God’s plan of redemption was planned before the beginning of the creation of this Earth. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:3-5  


When Adam and Eve were created and after sin entered into the world, God’s plan of redemption through Jesus was now moving forward to be fulfilled by Jesus some 4000 years later. The great mystery hidden from the world until Jesus came and walked this Earth was now revealed.  But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died. 21 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. 22 Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. I Corinthians 15:20-22  So that is why the Apostle Paul, who was a member of the Jewish Pharisees and was converted when he met Jesus, was so excited and passionate to share this Good News to all who would hear! For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  Romans 10:11-13 



And so today, 2000 years later the same message that Jesus taught and Paul preached is still being shared with the entire world to all who will believe. And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”16 But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. Romans 10:15-17 Let God use you today to share the Good News!

God’s Amazing Love for all Mankind!


Hebrews 9:14 For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.


Meditate on God’s Word!  After the sin of Adam and Eve, God made a promise to redeem all mankind.  And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike[b] your head, and you will strike his heel.” Genesis 3:15  As sin continued to grow in the world God destroyed the earth and all living things during the tme of Noah. All the living things on earth died—birds, domestic animals, wild animals, small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the people. 22 Everything that breathed and lived on dry land died. 23 God wiped out every living thing on the earth—people, livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and the birds of the sky. All were destroyed. The only people who survived were Noah and those with him in the boat. 24 And the floodwaters covered the earth for 150 days. Genesis 7:21-24 Then after another 1400 years God’s promise of redemtion was carried on when God called Abraham. Then the Lord said to him, “No, your servant will not be your heir, for you will have a son of your own who will be your heir.” Then the Lord took Abram outside and said to him, “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!” And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith. Genesis 15:4-6 


So it was from the line of Abraham that the lineage followed through Isaac, Jacob, Judah, Jesse, David, Solomon, Josiah and eventually; Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, Mary gave birth to Jesus, who is called the Messiah.  Matthew 1:16 So from Adam, to Noah, to Abraham, to Judah, to David and to Abraham and the Jewish nation and then to the Gentiles God’s promise was fuffilled through Jesus. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all. Romans 11:29-32 



We serve an amazing God who even today continues to reach out to all who will believe by faith in Jesus, God’s Messiah for all mankind! For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  Romans 10:11-13 God is reaching out to you today, will you hear His call to you through Jesus? God is there waiting for you to answer!
