Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word.

The 1st Relationship, By Karen Rowe

The First Relationship is with our Father God in Heaven; and it is thru and by our faith in Christ Jesus, Our Savior and Lord.

 

Happy Father’s Day,
Earlier this week, Rob looked at a young man who is moving to be near family; and with determination, looked him in the eye & said, “You hang in there man! Kids need their dad!”
I am not sure how many years they have been married. This young man told us our marriage was a Testament of time…They are finally expecting their 1st child.
He was all ears & with questions as we talked about silly things our kids would do or say; and hanging on every word, he asked, “How did you respond?”
As we look at this verse today, I believe it is also good that I honor my husband as a good man of God and a good dad, whom loves his family.
My husband loves His Father God.
And this relationship is the beginning of being a good dad!
Once, Rob said, “Karen, I would rather loose everything we have than to disappoint my Father!” He had a dad growing up whom he still loves very much, but his 1st relationship is with his Father God in Heaven.
Even in our marriage, what makes our marriage strong, is that God told us each, that we were the one for each other & this is the 1st bond that has always held our marriage together.
Marriage has to have difficulty in time to time to time to grow in our understanding of what marriage is all about. Marriage is about our first relationship with God. And when we grow to the Spiritual communication level in our believer’s marriage, “It is the power of wild horses!”
Next comes kids!
In every relationship we have, it works to abide in God and God in you.
Integrity is something Rob describes as in a person; you either have it in your heart; or you don’t. That is the one thing you can’t train a person to have! The ability to care and do the right thing.
Rob teaches, “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.”
Robert is a good man who loves His Father God in Heaven & walks a humble life grateful to Jesus. He teaches me, “Karen, people watch you. And they care more about what you do, than what you say.”
I watch him make an impact on many, because of respect. Respect: Learn, Show, Earn.
The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
Proverbs 20:7 KJV
If you have never known Jesus to say to Him, Help me Lord, we invite you to Come to the Alter of God’s Grace with us!  He will not deny you of His love!
Father, we pray for the one who is reading this right now.  Draw them by your Holy Spirit to Believe in your testimony about your Son.  Give them the courage to deny self and receive You!  Help them gain their understanding by and by; and each and every day as you Call this day, Today.  In Jesus Name, we pray, amen.
Our love in Christ to you all!
You are not a failure to your kids unless you deny yourself of your 1st relationship with God.  There is an eternity to spend together; this life is just getting us all there to live together with God in Peace.  Right now, we have a job to do.  Learn to live and love well by following Jesus.
There is no pride in life.  There is only love.  God is love.  And he who abided in love abides in God and God in him.  Open your Bible to 1 Jn 4:16 and let the Word of God read you.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!  God loves you and when you have this love in your heart; now you have something of God to give to your kids; and to all those God puts in your path!
Glory Hallelujah!  I thank Jesus for this Revelation!  God loves you!  And He has your best interest at heart!  If you are reading this, it is not too late to come to Jesus and pray.  Your kids will be blessed because of your prayer for them.  This is because of the 1st Relationship made right with God.
Love in Christ,
Karen Rowe
As always …. Perhaps there is something more that is easy for me to share … in Closing always ….
I believe Robert Glenn would love me to share this song with you at this time; it is called, “I believe by Brooks and Dunn”

AS ALWAYS …

TILL NEXT TIME …

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

Love in Christ,
Karen Rowe

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

IF WE CAN BE OF A HELP TO YOU, PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW…

IN CLOSING ALWAYS …

THE PURE IN HEART IS CHRIST!

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

THIS: 

” 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.

FAITH PLEASES GOD.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE PLEASE GOD WITHOUT FAITH.

“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?

BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT ENDURETH TEMPTATION: FOR WHEN HE IS TRIED, HE SHALL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE, WHICH THE LORD HATH PROMISED TO THEM THAT LOVE HIM.
JAMES 1:12 KJV

 

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?

 

TEACHING STEP BY STEP

HOW DO YOU GET FROM POINT A TO POINT B?

BEING BORN AGAIN.

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:

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.
