THOUGHT FOR TODAY - PRAISE THE LORD! EVEN IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE IT!

Image
Thought for Today:



Praise the Lord! Even if you don't feel like it - praise Him! He is worthy of all praise.

We enter into His presence with praise! In His presence is fullness of joy! He alone can heal your  broken heart. He made you. He will fill you with His love, joy and peace as you praise Him. He is worthy! He is good! He is God! Praise Him!

1 Praise the LORD!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.

2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the outcasts of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds. ESV

Blessings and love,

Linda's THOUGHT FOR TODAY!
My vision: Win Souls! Make Disciples! Build the Church The Lord said to me many years ago to "ASK FOR THE HEATHEN" 

Ask of me, and I shall give [thee] the heathen [for] thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth [for] thy possession. - Psalm 2:8 KJV

I asked for 100,000 people - He said; "Linda, that's not enough, I don't have very many people asking." So I said, "OK, I'll ask for 1 million." Then, my mind started to kick in and thoughts came rushing in that said, "How are you going to reach
ONE million people?"


I knew it wasn't going to be me, or my strategies, it would have to be GOD'S STRATEGIES! I committed it to prayer, making videos, social media and my "Thought for Today blog."

THEN...several years lat…

God is all about relationships!

Thought for today:God is love. He is all about relationships! God sent His Son Jesus, to take the penalty for our sin. If we got into Heaven the way we are - sinful - heaven wouldn't be perfect anymore. God is holy and nothing unholy gets in! But, thank God He had a plan! God was willing to give His Son, Jesus to become a human being and to take the penalty for sin! Sin causes us to be separated from God. Jesus became SIN for us, He knew no sin himself. Jesus died on the Cross and became a curse for us. He was buried, raised from the dead, got the Keys of Hell and death and rose from the dead. He was alive, He died, and He is alive forevermore!John 3: Jesus said: 12 “If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is,the Son of Man who is in heaven.14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,15 th…

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - GOD IS LOVE - WHAT CAN LOVE DO IN OUR NATION IF WE WALK IN IT TODAY?

Image
Thought for Today:

God is LOVE and He expects His children to walk in love. He even defines love for us:

1 Corinthians 13:1-11

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.



3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; …

THE GREAT COMMISSION - WIN SOULS and MAKE DISCIPLES!

Pastor David Cross and Linda M. Cross recently were a part of the graduation class from the International School of Ministry. They introduced Pastor Jose Esquivel to the ISOM school two years ago. Yesterday, July 16th, they graduated 47 students! Congratulations!

It was a great blessing to have the FOUNDER of the International School of Ministry - Dr. Berin Gilfillan, officiate the graduation. The ISOM curriculum currently is being used in 142 nations and in well over 65 of the world’s major languages are being developed. By 2010, over 13,000 training sites around the world had been identified that were using ISOM materials. This number consistently grows by about 1,000 new schools each year.

Christian Family Churches purchased the ISOM license for all of Central America to take the International School of Ministry to Mexico. Last year Pastor Linda M. Cross went to Mexico with a team from the Church of the Chosen Generation and Christian Family Church. During that time they introduced …

2017 MEXICO MISSION - STARTING BIBLE SCHOOLS

Image
Wow! What an amazing week in Mexico!

We visited 7 churches on Sunday alone!
I shared the vision for Bible schools in Mexico
at two pastor's meeting with approximately
85 pastors. They shared what the school has meant to them. One said his church has grown
so much they had to get a new building and now they are out growing that building!

We went to the mountains and brought two
TV's so they could start a Bible school.
The pastor told us a couple months ago someone came
to their village and prophesied someone from the North - the USA was coming to help - then we showed up! We set them up with a TV and bible school books  and video lessons.


We set up four new schools while there and have lots more who want to get started with a school in their church.

We need TV's, money for Bible school book printing and sponsorship for students.
Many people make just a few dollars a day,
so they need help to pay for tuition.

Please pray about helping!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - DO YOU REALLY DESERVE IT?

THOUGHT FOR TODAY – 
Do you REALLY DESERVE it?

Some people say, “We get what we deserve.” 
As I was praying today, I felt like the Lord said
to me that we get what we BELIEVE we deserve.


We can’t receive above where our BELIEF THERMOMETER is at. 

When my belief thermometer says, “I don’t believe I deserve that" – it shuts off my ability to receive that thing I want, desire or have asked the Lord for. It affects the natural and spiritual realm. It affects our relationships, church, job or any other area.

Jesus said “…"According to your faith let it
be to you." Matthew 9:29b NKJV


If you don’t believe you deserve it – you won’t receive it. It doesn’t matter if you you’ve wanted it, desired it, asked for it – if you don’t believe you deserve it – you won’t be able to receive it. 

There is a remedy – listen to today’s PODCAST to hear the "3 Steps to getting a new THERMOMETER!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - WHAT IS THE FEAR OF THE LORD and WHY is it IMPORTANT to YOU?

Image
THOUGHT FOR TODAY – WHAT IS THE FEAR OF THE LORD and WHY is it important?

Many people fear the Lord in the wrong way. They fear Him in the negative and run away from Him.
The proper fear of the Lord is to love Him so much you want to “love what He loves and hate what He hates”.

Psalm 111:10 NKJV  The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do [His commandments]. 
His praise endures forever.
Proverbs 8:13 NKJV The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil;
Proverbs 9:10 NKJV "The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One [is] understanding.”

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - Got a BIG PROBLEM? Look to the HEAVENS!

Image
DO YOU HAVE PROBLEMS and WORRIES? STRESSED OUT?
Thought for today: The Heavens declare God's glory!
Look up to the heavens whenever you're stressed or in unbelief, for they are there to remind you of God's Presence and His BIGNESS. When you do, you'll be encouraged and know He hears you and your problem is small compared to His BIGNESS.
He'll take care of your problems as you commit them to Him.
1 Peter 5:7 — casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
