Weekend Word From SGNScoops

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 14, 2018 – 8:37 am -

Weekend Word

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (Proverbs 4:23)

Pay attention to what the verse says… Everything flows from your heart – your hopes, your dreams, your fears, your anxieties, your anger, your forgiveness, your humility, your peace, your greed, your generosity, and your love. Yes, everything that makes you who you are is in your heart. So above all else, your heart needs a guard – and God is your guard. When the Holy Spirit fills your heart by faith, He flushes out sin and leaves enough room for the Fruit of the Spirit. Only a heart guarded by God can bear up under the influence of ungodliness. A heart submitted to Christ in prayer is protected by Christ with peace. Let me ask you, friend, “How is your heart?” You may feel fainthearted today – weary in your faith and work. If so, take time to slow down, rest and allow the Holy Spirit to restore your heart to wholeness. Perhaps your heart is broken by past hurt or present rejection. Seek your heavenly Father to be forgiven and to forgive. Be on guard! A foolish heart forgets God or even stops believing God. Excessive worry can discourage you.

 

When we are paralyzed by fear and anxiety, we sometimes behave as if God does not exist. So, we must guard against a foolish heart by gaining a heart of wisdom. So I have an answer for the problems… “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7)

Weekend Word From SGN Scoops

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 7, 2018 – 7:21 am -

Weekend Word

Hebrews 13:2

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Jesus and his disciples often relied on others for shelter and food. He suggested that some strangers might even be angels sent from God.

Today, most strangers that we extend hospitality to are probably not angels, but we can’t know if someday God will allow us to entertain an angel without us knowing it.

Today is a great time to practice hospitality. God may be using you. Are you ready to be used?

Psalm 91:9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
It is my prayer that you encounter the Lord is such a profound way that you will never be the same.

Written by scoopsnews on June 16, 2018 – 10:32 am -

Weekend Word

…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith…” – Hebrews 12:1-2

So much is said about going the extra mile…and that’s a good thing. In fact, Jesus Christ taught us to go the extra mile in service to others. 

Happy Saturday!

Weekend Word- “Fear Less, Pray More” by: Vonda Easley

Written by scoopsnews on May 26, 2018 – 5:15 am -

Weekend Word

No matter your age, there’s likely something that you fear.  It could be fear of the unknown, aging, being alone, losing a loved one, rejection or something more.

God’s word says “Be strong. Take courage…because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

A prayer for you today:

Heavenly Father, it is so awesome to know that we can dwell in Your loving presence. Thank you for providing a place where fear has no power over us because Your mercy ensures forever. Touch the person reading this today Lord and give them peace and wisdom to get through this day..

In JESUS name……. Amen!

 

Until next week……

Happy Saturday Y’all!

“…but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will.” – 2 Corinthians 8:5b

When it comes to your responsibilities, are you just involved or are you committed to give it your all for the good of your team, the group, and all concerned?

Even more important, are you totally committed to do your best for the glory of God?

Life is sometimes hard and we all get in ruts, but we should always strive to do our best for God.

Have an awesome weekend. Share Jesus!

Blessings from SGNScoops.

Weekend Word ….Happiness Or Joy?

Written by scoopsnews on April 21, 2018 – 9:19 am -

Weekend Word

Happiness is a state of mind, while joy is a mind-set.
Happiness comes and goes, while joy can be constant.
Happiness is dependent, while joy is independent.
Happiness is conditional, while joy is unconditional.
The apostle Paul had learned the secret to the joy found in Jesus:

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. — Philippians 4:11-13

Happy Saturday!

Weekend Word- “Be Still, And Know”

Written by scoopsnews on April 14, 2018 – 5:20 am -

Weekend Word

David experienced a great deal of trouble, and the only way he survived was by trusting in the Lord. He had to believe God was powerful enough to help him out of his difficulty. Only when he was still and trusting could he know in a very real way that God was God.

That same trust gives us the strength to face our days with confidence and peace.

Psalm 46:10

Be still and know that I am God.

Happy Saturday!

“Go Tell My Disciples, And Peter” -Easter Is For Second Chances

Written by scoopsnews on March 31, 2018 – 5:53 am -

Weekend Word

Are you struggling today?  Do you need a second chance?

But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.” —Mark 16:6-7
Do you need a second chance today? On the first Easter morning, Peter needed one. There in the Upper Room, he had insisted that he would never deny Christ. But just as Jesus had predicted, Peter not only denied the Lord, but he denied Him three times. The last glimpse Peter had of Jesus before His crucifixion was in the glow of the fire in the high priest’s courtyard, where he actually made eye contact with Jesus. And then he went out and wept bitterly.

What kind of look do you think Jesus gave Peter when their eyes met? Do you think it was one of those I-told-you-so looks? Do you think it was one of scorn, as if to say, “How could you betray Me?” I don’t think it was either one. I think it was a look of love, a look of compassion that said, “I still love you, Peter.” And I believe that is why Peter went out and wept bitterly. He had failed the Lord so miserably. He probably thought there was no hope for him.

But then a message went out from the empty tomb that Jesus had risen, followed by these instructions, “Go, tell His disciples—and Peter. . . (Harvest Daily)

Easter is for second chances. What are you waiting for?

Weekend Word

Jesus rose early in the morning to have time to talk with His Father.
(Mark 1:35)
We should strive to be more like Jesus.

Psalm 5:3 says:
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
In the morning when I rise….Give me Jesus!

What’s Your Calling? Weekend Word

Written by scoopsnews on March 17, 2018 – 6:22 am -

Weekend Word

Moses is one of history’s most noted leaders.
He led the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Then he served as a priestly leader.
Exodus 4:10-12 King James Version (KJV)
10 And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
11 And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the Lord?
12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.

What’s your calling?
