I would like to encourage you and ask this question that was asked to me...Do you see Victory in your journey?

Good Morning Again Dear Friends In Christ,

I know your time is valuable!  Please take time to read this.  I really believe the anointing of the Lord is on me to write this for you Today.  So if you are reading this, this is for you.  Friends, I have some good news for you!  God loves you and He has your best interest at heart.

Today as we dive into this devotion, I was reminded Today from my journal of 3 years ago, which began like this:

“God knows we need encouragement!
In the worldly events we see & feel the pains of all the evil we see, hear & notice that is going on all around us in this world, God knew we would need reminded to keep focused on the promises of God. “
You are welcome to read that Devotion on Facebook:  It is made public, so in view to all who seek and search, it can be found.
Friend, this is for you Today.    Regardless if you are a believer?       Or, if you have never activated your faith to believe – God loves you, my friend!        But always remember that a friend is only a friend if they are a friend in Christ!

Only God’s Love is able to love us through our sins, transgressions and iniquities … Only God!
And Jesus has poured out this love for us into our hearts that we can shine with this love for the world to see! Why?  Glad you asked my friend!  Because . . . “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
and… there is something more:  Verse 17 is NEVER to be FORGOTTEN; Nor IGNORED!

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

The Way?  The Truth?  The Life?
” through him “ . . . And my friend, His Name is Jesus!

* Do you see Victory in your journey?
Sure, we have Victory in Jesus for life & in ministry & prayer & faith …♡ tell me friends, don’t give up doing good, praying & loving in the love of Jesus, teaching in knowledge of the Lord, ministering in the power of His Spirit & to God be the glory! I would like to encourage you and ask this question that was asked to me…Do you see Victory in your journey?
Good morning,
Have you ever noticed that Jesus loves people enough to tell us Truth? Have you ever noticed how simple Jesus teaches & yet the world can’t understand?
Yesterday we learned about pure and undefiled religion . . . as Jesus teaches is to visit the fatherless – and widows IN THEIR AFFLICTION?
When is the last time you encouraged someone in the love of Jesus? When is the last time you told someone that you have some good news for them that God loves them and He has their best interest at heart? Have you ever told someone about the Love of Jesus and that Jesus died for them & even rose from the dead? That they might not have an earthly father, but there is a Heavenly Father who loves them so much He gave Jesus for them?
See? Jesus sends us to go & tell about the Kingdom of God. To encourage the one God loves, but the world tosses aside; Jesus loves.
See? We are in this world, but IN Christ Jesus, we are not OF this world. See? We are of the household of faith with Hope in Today thru & by Jesus.
Has Jesus made Himself known to you? Then you are called to go tell about this Jesus whom demonstrated God’s love for the world by laying down His life, so we all can live by Him 👋
Have you noticed that the Bible talks about imperfect believers, and that we are to reach for an obtainable goal in Christ?
See how God equipped us to need each other? Many are called & few are chosen? We can! We who are called can rise up to a new level of knowledge & understanding that we can & should love each other as Jesus would.
How? Let us begin by reading these couple chapters in Ephesians Chapter 4 & even tipping into Chapter 5!
I therefore, *the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy *of the vocation *wherewith ye are called, ☆With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4:1‭-‬3 KJV
Did you catch that the Verse of Today is vs 2 of Ephesians Chapter 4? It is included like the message we receive becomes a part of who we are ♡in Christ Jesus!
Glory Hallelujah!
Love in Christ,
Hope in Today Ministries 🙏


God IS Love! Love is defined in 1 Co 13. Follow Jesus!

We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!




Praise God – For we are ever-increasing in HIS power and in His knowledge that is of God!


” For God

hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. “


Thru and By Jesus,
God has given us the Holy Spirit OF His Mind … A Sound Mind is HIS Mind, which translates to Self-Control & Self-Disclipline!       .  .  .  .   Is this good for you Today?


Obedience to God IN Faith in & of The Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is a POWERFUL Name! & Jesus is the name above all names.



“BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself, AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread, and drink OF THAT cup (1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV).”

“FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep (1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV).”

Thank you Jesus for this Revelation?  I pray in Jesus Name for you to Receive in Christ the life Jesus was Risen to Give you!  Do you want to be made well?  what did Jesus say to the man who wanted to be made well?



And, Always Remember 2 Things!  No, Today, God gave me 3 things:

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

3.  Always Remember to come to Jesus, Before you go head on.

How do you find out How much God loves you?  How do you get from Point A to Point B?





Point A *Must Repent

Point B *Beginning of Being Born Again.

Step 1:  Being Born Again.

1st Step:  Repent.

Repent is a beautiful word!  It means letting go of condemnation & turning to walk with God In Jesus Name.

*We can’t get to where God is taking us if we wont’ let go of what is in one hand to follow Jesus with both hands ready to receive the life and blessings that are found in our relationship with God the Father through and by Jesus, the Son of God:  Jesus truly is the Christ, the Son of the Living God!  This is my Testimony, but by me telling you what Jesus does for me, this gives God permission to do it again in your life!

Can I say give God permission?

Can I say give God permission?  Sure!  As a parent is waiting on a child to believe enought to obey … to come into a trusting obedience:  yes, this response to God in Believing in Whom God is activates our believing Faith for God to do it again!  God is waiting on us to move from point A to point B!


1st Step to Being Born Again, Repent!  For the Kingdom of God is near to you!  Lord, I receive this!  I will never be the same!  The Kingdom of God is NOW!  Repent and Be Born Again to LIVE and Be set FREE from the law of sin and death (Pride and Selfish Ambition).

Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

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.
