WORDS OF WISDOM NEWSLETTER
WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM? (PART II)
I first give honor to my Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. I pray that this month’s newsletter finds you resting in the promises of God.
This recent pandemic has caused so much of our country and world to shut down and now as our country and world are slowing reopening, the effect can be felt worldwide by every life even by Christian that have walked by Faith and not by sight. Why, because we are in this world but yet not of it and we are all going through this season together.
God tells us that it rains on the just as well as the unjust (Matthew 5:45). Although as a Christian, a child of the living God who is saved and on our way to Heaven, we can’t deny our natural existence and what’s going on around us. No denying that as I write this newsletter over 300,000 people have lost their lives to COVID-19. As of today, no known cure for the virus and things are happening at an alarming rate in our generation that has never happen before, no denial of any to this. People are fearful and searching for answers.
No denying all of the above. However, I have good news for you and want to encourage your heart in knowing that the answer has been given and His name is Jesus. In the book of Psalm 23:4 it reads: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. I believe everyone is concerned about what our country and world is experiencing right now, and rightly so. However, as a child of God, we should not walk in fear. 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
It is good to watch our local and world new reports so that we will be informed of what’s going on in our country and around the world. However, we need to watch the Good News the Word of God and keep up with the promises of God for our lives more than anything. God tells us in the book of John 6:63-64 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
The Word of God also tells us in the book of Proverbs 4:20-22 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
So, no matter what we have faced, are facing or will face in this life or how big or small the problem may seem, God is asking His children the same question that He asked Simon Peter many years ago. Who Do You Say That I AM? (Matthew 16:15)
As you study the Word of God and learn the awesome price that Jesus paid for our soul, only then will you know who He is. Only then, will you know and understand who He is. He is bigger than anything that the devil may try to use to destroy you.
Romans 10:17 tells us So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (WOW-Words of Wisdom), The size of your faith determines the size of your God. Built your faith by the Word of God so that you can truly answer that question of Who Do You Say That I Am. You will be able to declare according to the Word of God Who Jesus really is and who He is to You.
Mennie and I Love you and are grateful that you are determined to know that you serve a Big God and that you are able to declare Who He Really Is. Because of your generosity to the things of God, you can stand on the promise found in Malachi 3:11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts. Thank you as always for being a part of this winning team for our Lord, Jesus Christ, your love, prayers and support are making a difference.
In His Will,
Dr. Joseph Morrison, D.Min
