Meditate with Power!



God’s Irrevocable Love!


Romans 11:29  For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 


Meditate on God’s Word!   10 simple words that mean so much. God’s Word is so powerful that if we would just memorize these 10 words it could change our lives.  For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29  We resisted God’s grace but His love for us was so strong that His grace drew us like a magnet draws steel.  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. Romans 11:29-31

It is through the mercy of God that He has shown us that we now may show God’s mercy to others. How amazing and how powerful is the grace of God. It is irrevocable. Webster’s dictionary defines irrevocable as follows: Not capable of being changed : impossible to revoke. Think of what that means that what God has begun in your life and given you is not possible to be changed. Amazing!  By a simple act of faith our life was changed and now we have become God’s agents of His grace. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:1-3,6

What an amazing God that loves us, called us and even considers using us to express His love, mercy and grace to others.  That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:16-19 

The amazing, irrevocable and irresistible love of God. We stand stunned and awe and in amazement on how much God love us. All we can say is thank you Jesus! Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! Romans 11:33  

Meditate with Power!



From Enemy to Friend!


Colossians 1:21  And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled.

Meditate on God’s Word!   Think of how we should live today because of what God has done for us. We did nothing to deserve and yet God reached out to touch us and forgive us. How amazing is the God that we serve and how powerful is the grace that God has shown us!  You have been chosen by God to show His grace to everyone you meet in life.  Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. Romans 11:5-6

God’s grace is so powerful in our lives that it draws others to Jesus as we express the love, grace and forgiveness that God has shown us.  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. Romans 11:29-31 It is through our showing forgiveness and mercy to others that they are drawn to Jesus. We are all guilty before God until Jesus stepped in and gave His life on the cross for the sins of mankind.  For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all. Romans 11:32

All we can say is thank you God for what you have done for us. Help us to do the same to others in our lives.  Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! 34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?” 35 “Or who has first given to Him And it shall be repaid to him?” 36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen. Romans 11:33:36

Unconditional Love!


Deuteronomy 7:6-7  The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the Lord loves you.

Meditate on God’s Word!   You did nothing to find God but God found you and took you out of the gutter of despair, loneliness and sadness.  He helped you to understand how much He loves you, then He saved you. If you believe this, then what can you possibly do to earn His love when He gave His son to pay the price for your sins, past, present and future. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight. Colossians 1:21-22

Consider what a staggering thought this is for our minds to comprehend. God did it all because He loves you, period. One of the greatest mysteries of mankind, now revealed to those, He has chosen, you!  The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:26-27

The ability now, not to live a perfect life, but a life that is now guided by God’s power, not just our own selfish lusts and desires. This mystery and hope drove the Apostle Paul, until the day that he died and now drives us.  Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. Colossians 1:28-29 Let God’s love and this mystery overwhelm you today as you realize you are not alone anymore and that God’s Holy Spirit lives within you to strengthen, help and to support you as you share the love of Jesus with others. This is the mystery of the Gospel

God’s Love for You!


Psalm 139:17-18  How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!  If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.

Meditate on God’s Word!   I am sure many of us would think why would God think about me, considering who I am and the way I have lived my life. God told the nation of Israel over 3000 years ago what He tells you today.  “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the Lord loves you. Deuteronomy 7:6-7


What a staggering thought! As a non believer who comes to Jesus or as a Christian who comes to the Lord for forgiveness because they know they have sinned, the point is the same, God loves you. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!  If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. Psalm 139:17-18


God’s promises are irrevocable and unchanging. Just think what would happen if you were told your investments would grow 20% per year, guaranteed, what would you say? Here is what God says about His promises.  “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments. Deuteronomy 7:9


God loves you period, sinner or saint, because He knows our nature and our heart and our struggles in life. Let God’s love overwhelm you today as you meditate, not on your problems but on the power and promises of God’s love.  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13  Get lost in the wonder and the love of God and you never know what God will do!

God Loves You 24/7!


Psalm 40:6   Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works Which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us Cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered.

Meditate on God’s Word!   Think about this simple fact, that God thinks about you constantly. His love knows no measure. Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works Which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us Cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered. Psalm 40:6


King David often meditated on the power of God’s love for each of us and he knew that God saved him from many difficult situations in life. Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;  Let such as love Your salvation say continually, “The Lord be magnified!” 17 But I am poor and needy; Yet the Lord thinks upon me. You are my help and my deliverer; Do not delay, O my God. Psalm 40:16-17 God thinks about you constantly and knew you before you were even born. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. Psalm 139:15-16


It is almost overwhelming to think about how much God loves you! How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. Psalm 139:17-18 Enjoy and meditate on God’s love today. He loves us in spite of ourselves. Ask God to let the knowledge of His love transform you today as you let God love you today! Accept it, believe it and let God’s love penetrate every cell of your mind, body and spirit. It is yours based on His Word!

Enjoy Grace!


Genesis 6:8  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Meditate on God’s Word!   Nine other amazing words to meditate on today. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. God destroyed the earth because sin ran rampant on the earth and yet he spared Noah and his family.  And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. Genesis 8:17-18

God’s grace has reached out through the ages since Noah to even you today.  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8-9 Called and saved by God to be a witness to a watching world.


We don’t deserve it, never will and yet God has called us by His grace so that the world may understand God’s love for all mankind.   But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7 Enjoy God’s grace in your life and let your life glorify God as you just say thank you Lord for your grace.

God’s Power in Tough Times!


2 Corinthians 12:10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Meditate on God’s Word!   Nine amazing words that can change your life if you ask God to make them real in your life through the power of the Holy Spirit. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Paul found this out the hard way through numerous beatings and hardships. 24 From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep;26 in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren. 2 Corinthians 11:24-26


Paul had been often abused because of his strong faith in Jesus and willingness to share the GospelIn weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness— 28 besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches. 29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation?30 If I must boast, I will boast in the things which concern my infirmity. 2 Corinthians 11:27-30 He lost almost all physical things to obtain the spiritual riches in heaven. Mother Teresa did the same thing in the streets of Calcutta, India caring for the poorest of the poor, where she became rich. God may bless you with riches but God doesn’t want you to be rich. Here is what God wants from each of us. “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? For all those things My hand has made, And all those things exist,” Says the Lord. “But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word. Isaiah 66:1-2

So stop asking for stuff and ask God to break you, humble you and to mold you into the person that God can use to draw others to Jesus. This is where the real power in life comes, through suffering, through the power of the Holy Spirit to endure and to let God make you into His servant! Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
