JESUS Leads us

John 10:4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him… Have you ever seen a farmer trying to drive a bunch of geese from one location to another? He goes behind the geese, doesn’t he? Compare this to a shepherd who leads his sheep. He goes before them and the sheep simply follow him. Jesus is our shepherd and we are His sheep. He does not drive us, but He leads us. Legalistic people drive others. Jesus leads. He goes in front of us. He is not like the sergeant who …

Miracle takes place when you give Thanks

John 11:41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.

Remember, Prayer brings God on the scene. Do we understand the secret place in our life! That is the place where we pray to our Father.

Now, do you find yourself telling your child the same things? We are naturally conscious of lack, but Jesus isn’t. Even in the midst of lack, He was always conscious of abundance.
