Nuggets to Spur Faith

Hold on to not what the eye sees necessarily but what the heart knows of God. Susan Harris (January 7/20)

The power lies in the small. We eat one bite, move one foot forward, complete one minute. Small changes lead to big results. Susan Harris (January 3/20)

Just as the laws about drinking/ driving, texting/driving are to keep us safe, so too God’s laws – His Word – keep us safe. Susan Harris (January 2/20)

2020- PERFECT VISION.
May your visions, missions, goals and objectives be GOD-ALIGNED.
You fade, HE SHINES.
And may you be blessed accordingly. Here’s to plenty in 2020.
God’s promises outweigh your failures. He picked YOU for His glory. Susan Harris (Jan 1, 2020)

One does not have to wish upon a star when one can request directly from the maker of the stars. Susan Harris (December 31/19) 

The Pharisees of Jesus’ day was always on the lookout to fault Him. Yet they never found immorality with Him. Not with women or men. Does warped minds in present day choosing to depict Him in a rotten movie trump the eye witness account of the Pharisees? NEVER. Susan Harris (December 21/19)

There are mixed opinions on whether what we go through are meant to humble us. Scripture points that it is so. Be it sickness, or pain, or shame, or loss, or poverty, or ill repute, each and every situation humbles us, tests us, and reveal what is in our hearts. Humbleness is the state God wants us at, for it is to the humble that He gives grace. Susan Harris (December 20/19)

Deuteronomy 8:2-4 (NASB) –
“You shall remember all the way which the Lord your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord.”

Gifts are at the heart of Christmas. We give gifts and we receive them. Though the concept of gifts appears to originate in the world of retail, it is actually a divine order. God gave us the gift of His Son Jesus Christ. CHRIST- the root word of Christmas. Therein lies the origin. When we receive God’s gift we receive forgiveness. We give Him our hearts. – Susan Harris (December 19/19)

 

Only the Originator of joy can spark it and light it aflame in your life. The Holy Spirit gives true joy. Susan Harris (November 16/19)

“Where will you spend Eternity?” has been the question I’ve asked most over the last year. Usually on Sundays I post a reminder of my television program ETERNITY With Susan Harris. Sometimes, however, the goings on suggest more imminence. Now is such a time. Death redirects us to our own mortality. What comes after death? Where do we go? Is there life after death? And I respond – Life in Heaven or Hell comes after death.

There is only one way to escape the hellishness of Hell, and that is through Jesus Christ. Friend, it is better to have Him in your life and realize that you never needed Him, rather than to realize that you need Him but do not have Him upon death. A simple prayer of faith can bring you in alignment with God the Father, such as: “Dear Jesus, I have sinned and need your forgiveness. I invite you to be my Saviour and Lord. Help me to be the kind of person you want me to be. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins and for giving me eternal life. Amen.”

Friend, if you prayed the prayer and meant it, Jesus is in your life. I encourage you to join a Bible-believing church where you can fellowship with others and grow in your faith. If internet or television is more convenient for you, tune in and grow in Christ. Read your Bible – the gospel of John in the New Testament is a good place to start (there are free websites such as Biblegateway.com . Pray to God. Ask Him to teach you recognize His voice. Connect with me if you have questions. God loves you. Susan Harris (November 5/19

Some alliances displease God. Jehoshaphat was a good king, yet… Susan Harris (November 1/19)

“After this Jehoshaphat king of Judah allied himself with Ahaziah king of Israel. He acted wickedly in so doing. So he allied himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish, and they made the ships in Ezion-geber. Then Eliezer the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat saying, “Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the Lord has destroyed your works.” So the ships were broken and could not go to Tarshish. 2 Chronicles 20:35-37 (NASB)

The hands of the Lord vs hand of man. King David’s choice in 1 Chronicles 21:13b is “please let me fall into the hand of the Lord, for His mercies are very great. But do not let me fall into the hand of man.” Are you facing a choice today? Susan Harris (October 23/19)

“Father God, as we (Canadians) head to the polls to vote for federal leadership, help us to vote for the issues in which we believe, for causes close to Your heart. Let us not be enticed by bribery or reward to cast our votes. Let us not speak ill of those whom we do not support or vote for. Let enmity not come in between those who vote or believe differently. Your word says that the government will be on the shoulders of Christ. Give us leaders who will reverence You and honour Your name through the decisions they make. You know the outcome of this election; empower the Prime Minister-to-be and all leaders with grace and strength to govern us well. Let peace prevail today, and always. Let us be faithful to pray for whoever is chosen and support him/her for You asked us to honour authority. Thank You for being in control. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.” Susan Harris (October 21/19)
