The world is a scary place. Every time you listen to the news there are more attacks, more shootings, more darkness, more uncertainty. It is enough to make you want to stay at home and hide. In times like this it is easy to get fixated on the darkness. When we do we lose sight of our True Foundation. It is like looking at a large map trying to find your way without those very helpful words "You Are Here."
Knowing who God is and who you are in Him is the "You Are Here" for all our circumstances. Regardless of how dark or uncertain it may feel, God is ever constant and your identity is secure in Him.
Philippians 4:7 promises if we bring everything to God, His peace which passes all understanding will guard our heart and mind through Christ Jesus. That word guard is a very strong word, much stronger than our English language expresses. In the Greek it means "to protect by a military guard, either to prevent hostile invasion, or to keep the inhabitants of a besieged city from flight."
God's peace not only keeps invaders out, but keeps us from running away in fear. So how do we live in that peace? In The Message translation the same verse ends with this phrase "It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
It is time to choose to guard our hearts and minds with the truth of who God is and who we are in Him, allowing who He is to displace all worry and guard us from attack and from our fear.
"I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order
that you may know ... his incomparably great power for us who
believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which
he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated
him at his right hand in the heavenly realms" (Eph. 1:18-20).
You are identified with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
You live in the risen and ascended Christ every day because God
raised you up with Him. He is your life in all His resurrection
power (Phil. 3:10).
Because of what Christ did, you are hidden in God and sealed
by the power of the Holy Spirit. Choose to live from the reality
of the finished work of Christ's resurrection and ascension. All
authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Jesus, and you
are seated with Him at the right hand of the Father, established in
His authority (Eph. 2:6). You live in His power and dominion over
spiritual forces of darkness. You reign in life through Christ.
Be blessed to understand your true position in Christ. The Spirit of
Christ Jesus is present every day in you so that you can live always
from your spirit, not allowing the soul or body to take over.
You are a covenant child of God Most High. He is the God of all
grace, God of the impossible. You have the privilege of coming
into agreement with Him in your spirit, soul, and body. You are
intended to live in honor and authority in Jesus' name. You are on
kingdom business. Be blessed to represent your King everywhere

"Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!"
As a kid, did you ever make a trade, "no trades back"? I'd always drawback, thinking, "Now wait a minute. What does he know that I don't? I may decide that what I had was better and want it back!" In every need, Jesus invites us to exchange our insufficiency for His all-sufficiency, no trades back. He longs for us to substitute our "I don't have" for "I have all I need in Jesus." We take great hope that more than what God does, it is who He is that really makes the difference.
Who He is to us is so much more than what He does for us. His person is inseparable from all His power and presence. Your momma may have told you "Be a brave boy" or "Be a brave girl," but Jesus tells us not to worry about feeling brave or putting on a happy face: just let Him be for us who He is for every need.
His strength shines best in our weakness. Jesus said, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." Like Paul, we can say, "I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong" (2 Cor. 12:9-10).
Aren't you glad? It's called grace--God's enabling presence. "And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work" (2 Cor. 9:8).

Obligations are something that most of us take very seriously. Most people feel that once they’ve committed themselves to something, such as a monthly payment or a promise of another kind, they should do everything in their power to fulfill that commitment. Fulfilling one’s responsibilities is simply a matter of positive personal pride on the part of most people. And so it should be.
We as Christians not only have our secular obligations, but also spiritual obligations. One of those obligations is obedience to Christ. Though we are commanded to live in obedience to Christ, that obedience should be the result of more than just a command to do so. I believe we are doubly obligated to obey Christ because of what He has done for us. If for no other reason, we should serve Him obediently out of gratitude for His mercy and grace demonstrated in salvation. However, gratitude alone will not enable us to obey Christ; only depending on His power daily, by faith, will accomplish that. But obedience is our Christian obligation just the same.
Leading a church without prayer is like walking in the Grand Canyon in the dead of night without a flashlight or a backpack. It just should not be done. To move your church and your life to the next level, it is imperative to create a culture and habit of prayer intercession for the city, starting with you.
You wouldn't hike a desert without water. Make sure you aren't leading without prayer.
When the soul of every individual is enlarged through prayer and passion of the heart is inflamed to pray, the group called “church” is mobilized to break through barriers and impact a city. Hosea 10:12 lays out a great call to believers:
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
Our 47 years old Pastor in Pangyan, Glan, Pastor Marcelino Cabca is in an E.R. in Emergency Hospital of Glan, Sarangani waiting for tests results before he is probably admitted into. However, he has fallen 5 times in the last 36 hours, is not taking his medicines, is confused, has not been eating, is afraid to stand up, and his feet and ankles are swelling.
Please pray the Lord guides the hospital staff to figure out what is happening and to adjust his medicines for a quick recovery!!
We are so amazed at what God has done in 2015. He has taken this ministry to heights we never thought possible. We want to personally thank you for your commitment through prayers and support.
I believe that we are getting ready to step into one of the greatest seasons for the ministry as we share hope to the world around us. God is opening doors, multiplying opportunities, and pouring out his favor in our ministry and in your own life and family as well.
God bless you and give you a wonderful year in 2016 as by His grace we seek to serve our Lord Jesus together.
God bless you so much, with our love in Christ.
