WTC Update – November 15, 2011

Jesus suffered in obedience. He learned to obey by the things He suffered (Hebrews 5:7-8). What a pattern of life for the believer!

WTC Update – November 14, 2011

Paul said he was "as known, yet unknown". The world didn’t know what hit them, but he was well-known of God because Paul did His will.

When God says, "Stay; let Christ be formed in you", beware the enemy’s lie, "If it’s the will of God, all will go smoothly."

God said that summer and winter, springtime and harvest, they would not cease. In life, it’s not always summer; it’s not always harvest.

The Price Tag of Obedience

Anything you desire from the Lord will cost yo usomething, yet you can’t purchase it with money. The price tag is obedience – the currency, faith.

Though the cost is high, everyone can afford it, yet not many have come to invest in personal sacrifices – making regular deposits of fruitful acts of obedience in our heavenly account, with eternal dividends – souls saved, lives changed, and an unshakeable Kingdom being built.

“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.” – Isaiah 55:1

With love in Christ,

Movie Courageous– A MUST SEE!

Good evening to you all,

My husband and I have just returned from the premier of the Christian movie Courageous, from Sherwood Pictures, who brought to us Facing the Giants and Fireproof.

This movie is an absolute must-see! The film quality is as high as any other professional, high budget movie, the cast is wonderful, the storyline is engaging with lots of intense drama, riveting action scenes, emotionally dense moments, and the humourous scenes are just hilarious!

This movie is a call to action to fathers, but not only for fathers. If you have a good or not so good relationship with your Dad, if you mentor someone, if you are a wife, daughter or son, whoever you are… this movie will bless you! It is also a perfect opportunity to reach out to those around you with something fun and meaningful to do.

This weekend is crucial for this movie, as attendance on opening weekend determines how long the movie will stay in theatres. PLAN TO GO AND INVITE ALL YOUR FRIENDS!

Thanks for your consideration. Please visit the movie’s website: http://courageouscanada.com/tickets

Today is the day that the Lord has made and He wants you to rejoice and be glad in it (Ps 118:24) because He has appointed great things for you in this day, no matter what circumstances may say! He has prepared a table for you, even in the presence of adverse situations and harsh difficulties (Ps 23:5).

Praise Him in all and through all circumstances. Come into His presence singing (Ps 100:2), not worrying. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise (Ps 100:4), not complaints. Come before His throne boldly (Heb4:16) , in full assurance of faith, knowing that Jesus is FOR you, always making intercession for you through His blood that speaks of forgiveness rather than crying out for vengeance, as the blood of Abel did (Heb 12:24).

REJOICE! God has provided. He is faithful, His mercy endures forever, His compassions fail not, His love for you is unchanging, and His Word is forever settled in heaven! (Ps 119:89)

REJOICE! Enthrone the Lord through your praises! Build Him a place of honour and power through sacrifices of joy!

Our God is awesome, holy, magnificent, great in power, mighty to save…Who is this King of glory? JESUS, the Lord God Almighty! (Ps 24:10)

With love in Christ,

Min. Léna

Sacrificing on God’s Altar of Praise

Praising God brings breakthrough because giving thanks in the midst of trials is an act of faith, and of humility. God rewards faith and exalts the humble. When I praise God, I give Him honour, I enthrone Him in His rightful position of power, hence disarming principalities and powers…

God’s ways are higher than our ways, that’s for sure! There is no praise so sweet as words of faith, life, and love uttered from a broken heart, under Satan’s attacks… What a blow to the enemy, and what an act of love towards our Saviour!

For our praise to be received as a sacrifice, something has to be killed… It could be fear, anxiety, hurt, anger, shame, pride, self-will… whatever it is, our praise must cost us something (1Chr 21:24).

What have you killed today and brought on God’s altar of praise? For me, I am on a journey of greater surrender, submission, obedience… I want to know how low is the humblest place in the Kingdom, because that’s when my heart is closest to God’s heart… (Phil 2:5-8)

The mind of Christ is found in a heart bound to serve…

PRAISE BE TO GOD FOR HIS INFINITE WISDOM, GREAT FAITHFULNESS, AND UNFAILING LOVE!

– Min. Léna

My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.
He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be moved.

Psalm 62:5-6 NKJV

The word "expectation" in this passage is translated as "hope". We cannot live without hope. People living without hope want to die.

Expectations we have feed our hope to see certain things happen in our lives. The question is: what are your expectations, and where do your expectations come from?

There is nothing wrong with having expectations. After all, life without any expectation surely leads to mediocrity, if not despair.

However, unmet expectations can lead to disappointment, frustration, anger, and depression. The Bible tells us that "hope deferred makes the heart sick" (Prov 13:12a). When our expectations come from people around us or from favourable circumstances, we are surely headed for "reality checks". People will fail us, and circumstances can be difficult at times. This was how Job felt when, in the midst of atrocious adversity, he exclaimed: "Where then is my hope? As for my hope, who can see it?" (Job 17:15).

David understood that his expectation should be placed in God alone, because He only is always true and faithful! That’s why he said: "And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You." (Ps 39:7).

What does that mean to wait for God, and to put our hope in Him? Does that mean I do nothing until something happens? Does that mean my hope will be fulfilled only in heaven? What can I hope from God anyways?

Well, I can certainly put all my expectation in His Word, for His promises to come to pass in my life because God said:

"So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to me void,
But shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."

I can also put my hope in His plan for my life because God said:

"For I know the thoughts that I think towards you…thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope" (Jer 29:11)

I can fully put all my expectations in God’s plan for my life, and for Him to bring it to pass, because "He who has begun a good work in me will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Phil 1:6, para)! Hallelujah!

I can also be certain that God will never leave me alone, or to myself…needy, weak or confused because He has given me the Helper, His Holy Spirit, to abide in me forever (Jn 14:16). Holy Spirit in me teaches me all things and brings to my remembrance all things that Jesus said (Jn 14:26). He also guides me into all truth (Jn 16:13). I can put all my hope in God because He is faithful and cannot lie (Heb 6:18)!

As we enter into a New Year, I’d like to exhort you to not take vain resolutions, to let go of your own expectations, and to put all your hope and trust in the One who cannot disappoint you, cheat you or fail you: Jesus Christ! Let your expectation come from the faithfulness of His Word, the greatness of His plan for you, the fellowship of His Holy Spirit walking with you at all times, and the unchanging nature of Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8)!

In this way, you will be able to remain diligent and faithful in serving the Lord in 2011!

For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Hebrews 6:10-12 NKJV

GOD WILL NEVER DISAPPOINT YOU AND HE HAS THE BEST FOR YOU!
SERVE HIM WITH EVERYTHING YOU HAVE IN 2011!

With much love,

Min. Léna [end]
