When is the last time God got your attention ?  By Karen Rowe


Good Morning Dear Friends Of Jesus,

Perhaps you had a difficult day at work, school or at home … yesterday?  What made your day difficult?  Was it is the work?  Was it dealing with people?  What made your day better?  Did you experience the Peace of Jesus?

Let’s go there!

This was a great comment. I hope it helps you in your study.

Leading in to this devotion of the day, How we respond to God, people, Jesus and self in this life is the unconditional of difficulty and challenge to us in this life.  It’s not the guns, it is the person behind the gun that does good or evil. It’s not the car, it’s the person making decisions in how to drive the car.  It’s not the work that makes our day easy or hard; it’s how we respond to each difficulty with a grateful heart; or lack there of remembrance of what Jesus has done for us all.

Jesus has made Peace with God readily available for us and gives us the opportunities to gain Peace.   The thing is; peace comes with a challenge and opportunity that many people call troubles and miss the point of God in the difficulty.

God is with us in this broken world through Christ Jesus whom strengthens us.

It’s our heart; it’s the condition of our heart that makes up how we respond to life in this life.  Life is about God and the people we are around – including you and me.  We are a hand-full to deal with as people in this world.  But a people who place our life in the Hand of God, what a difference God makes!

Some people are of this world, which the Bible simply teaches they either don’t know Christ YET; or have rejected Jesus?  Either way / And still, some people are saved by Grace, which the Bible teaches us makes a believer who lives in this world; but are not OF this world.  We who believe are OF God, because Jesus makes us right with God.

If you are reading this, YES, you can believe.  Just say yes, I hear you Jesus speaking to my heart.  I believe you love me. Friend, which is better?  To follow the voice who hates you and wants to destroy you (satan); or believe and follow the Voice of God, whom loves you and wants to protect you?  As for me, my mind is made up.  I will chose to follow Jesus all the days of my life.

Now, let’s go there and be transparent.  Yesterday was a day that I had to work at reeling my heart in … What does this mean?  It means that we, who believe are still human.  Remembering Jesus is a powerful position to take in this world.

I will wrap up my only thought on this. God’s Word spoke right to me this morning.  So I don’t write devotions; I do Devotions to God’s Holy Word.  I write to share what God will do, when we just seek to follow His Son.

Friends, the Grace of God is this:  We may be sloppy at following Jesus some days, but God’s love for us is so great, He gentle nudges us in the right direction … like a musician would find tune his guitar.  Let’s Jesus ROCK your world!  And, when you receive this, you will never be the same.

Jesus say, Jesus I believe it is okay!  Jesus really did make all things right and new again.  And, it is okay to believe Jesus loves you!

That’s it.

You may have heard me say, that people should notice God’s love more in me through my mistakes as I learn how to do better, than in when things are going alright.

God is good!!! And, this is the love of God that I hope you see for you too Today!  God doesn’t condemn us; God loves us.  He helps us, corrects us and shows us the way to life, blessings, peace, joy and Right living that is in HIM, through HIM and with HIM; and God in us that is only by His Grace and through and by God’s Son, Jesus the Christ!

Today, if you face a day with others that  … business ideas clash; and you see what is wrong more than what is right; TURN to Jesus and focus on Christ & just abide in His Righteousness Life living in you.  God will tell you MORE as you need to know!

SEEK God’s Thoughts and Read His Word!  He will speak His direct thoughts to you by the Holy Spirit and thought and by believing in Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living God, Savior and Lord!

Jesus will lead you, just seek the personal relationship with Him.

When you believe, yes, we (In Christ Jesus with God) are the ones who are supposed to be different.  Pray for others; and humble yourself to seek what God wants you to know about yourself.

This could just be a test – that the situation is not even as it appears ….  And this would be another page or two of discussion, but consider this:  The devil is a liar with a goal to divide, steal from you what God has freely given, kill your emotions, thoughts, will to choose to life and be blessed (The devil wants to defeat you, by tricking you to give up on God), SO THAT he can destroy you (like a wave tossed back and forth in the ocean beating the rocks).


BUT GOD!  God wants you to Seek Him to Know Him and follow His Son to life, blessings, peace, joy, and every good thing that God has waiting on you to find; both here and now & forEVERmore!

Doesn’t that just get you!?  Jesus moves me!

Don’t give up!  Press on toward the goal! Jesus has already finished it on the Cross.  Pick up your cross and carry on to Victory found in Jesus!  Read God’s Word to you and study His Plan for you! …

I hope this is a blessing to you.  This is the way I believe the Holy Spirit spoke these words to me to tell you at this particular time.  God loves you.  He is not mad at you.  God is calling us to come to HIM and be SET FREE from condemnation!  Call on Jesus and discover, nothing is as bad as the devil wants you to feel or think.

These big and powerful words like “surrender” & “humility” & such like that … sometimes keep people from gaining understanding.  I am writing to you to encourage you that life with Christ is the best life to choose; and in fact Jesus is the only way to live a life with God.

We are not the way to God.  No one is that good; nor that bad.  Only Jesus Qualified to come to God.  So won’t you come & grow a little closer to your Father Today in Jesus Name, I pray.

Love in Christ,

Daily Devotion To God’s Holy Word.

The Bible is a real book written for real people.

Some may think I write devotions ?

Rather, the Truth is, I share what a difference God’s Word makes in my life!

To start: Humans messed up, but Jesus made a way. We believe in the Truth & we come to God and are saved & when you receive this you will never be the same!

To grow: Humans still mess up. BUT IN Christ, there’s no condemnation in learning.There is God’s Way & we are being changed day by day & Word by Word.

God is saying to us, His Word should be making a difference in our life & ~ Including in our human anger management.

Can humans think we are right and follow our right to be right because we know what is right? That attitude just made our right wrong, because we missed the mark of the 1st 2 commandments Jesus summarized the whole law in: God is LOVE!

He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind. And love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ ” Jesus told him, “You’re right! Do this, and life will be yours.” But the man wanted to justify his question. So he asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbor?”
Luke 10:27‭-‬29 GW

“Ask the Pastor” had a question air on TV yesterday, What is the difference btw milk & meat in the Bible?

If you don’t know, come and receive the easy to digest teaching of God’s Love for you. But as it is good for a baby to grow up and grow teeth to chew more solid food, so it is to SEEK the word of God & be able to digest it TO Abide in it.

God’s Word is FULL PROOF!

All the way back in the Written Old Testament, God testifies to a lack of seeking & lack of knowledge that leads to the wrong way, further away from God. SEEK is to grow closer / nearer to God.

The Hope is, we’ve got Today! Remember Jesus! and I pray God’s Word puts a WOW factor in redirecting Some thing that was trying to lead your heart astray from AWE in the Humility in Christ, whom gives breath to your very life.

Hosea 4:6 (KJV)

6 My people are destroyed FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE: because thou hast REJECTED knowledge, I will also reject thee, …

How has this effected you Today?
Will you be more willing TO let go TO gain?

“Be Patient with People and Have Patience in Situations.” Helps me.

Billy Grahams said, “Every law that God has given has been for man’s benefit. If man breaks it, he is not only rebelling against God; he is hurting himself.”

I hope this is a blessing to you.  God’s Word is living, active and makes a difference in my life… every time …I surrender to apply what God says to do.  I hope you are inspired to pick up your Bible and read.  Begin in John Chapter 3.  If you have questions, ask them, God is generous and also gave you the Church to help you grow.  The Living Church is Christ in a Believer; and we gather to be transparent so Christ can be glorified as we grow united Together in Him.

To God be the Glory!  and amen.

Love in Christ,

Karen Rowe

Holy Spirit you are welcome here!

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
