Down the Path to the Well—a thought to remember along the way

"Clean is clean"—depending on who’s speaking! If it’s my sons claiming they’ve "cleaned" their rooms, clean is NOT clean in MOM’S eyes…and when they hung him on the cross, he was not clean either. He was a thief condemned to die—but not for long. For during those excrutiating hours, he recognized Someone hanging next to Him who in a split second of time would forever change his sentence—not man’s but God’s. Men still saw him as the dirty thief; Jesus saw him as a clean child of God. That’s grace, God’s amazing grace!

And it avails for you today. The second you confessed that sin to your Lord and asked His forgiveness, you were forgiven. Give no thought to the tempter’s taunts. He’s a “liar, the father of lies and the truth is not in him.” Your past is forgiven, forgotten and forever washed away. You’re cleansed and declared righteous according to heaven’s records. You are clean—heart, soul, body, mind and spirit—and “clean is clean” in GOD’S eyes! That’s what really counts. Believe it—and have a praise-filled day!

Delight in a Word from the Well—a refreshing in the Water of His Word

"And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise
(Luke 23: 42,43).”

"Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you (John 15:3)."

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).”

Draw from the Well—a prayer for renewing strength for this day

"Lord, I’ve confessed it a million times—and it continues to haunt me. You heard me the FIRST time—there’s no need to keep feeling the condemnation of the enemy of my soul. Lord, I refuse the harrassment and accusations—I am clean, by Your Blood—and like the thief on the cross, I receive that perfect cleansing this Holy Week, In Jesus Name, Amen."

For more than a century, the pinnacle of golf has been to score 59—a score that had been recorded only three times in PGA Tour history before 2010. Then, in 2010, Paul Goydos scored a 59—only to be equaled a month later by Stuart Appleby’s 59. Consequently, some sportswriters speculated that the most coveted achievement in golf was now becoming commonplace! It’s amazing to see two 59s in the same season, but it would be a mistake to begin to view this as ordinary.

For those who follow Jesus Christ, it is also a mistake to view the remarkable as ordinary. Think about prayer for instance. At any moment we can talk to the Creator God who spoke the universe into existence! Not only are we welcomed into His presence, but we are invited to enter boldly: “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16).

There is nothing ordinary about access to God—yet sometimes we take this privilege for granted. He is almighty God, but He is also our Father who loves us and allows us to call on Him at any moment of any day. Now that’s extraordinary!

Our prayers ascend to heaven’s throne
Regardless of the form we use;
Our Father always hears His own
Regardless of the words we choose. —D. De Haan

God is always available to hear the prayers of His children.

I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me”. Philippians 4:13

"For I know the plans I have for you, declared the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

"We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God." Acts 14:22

Life can be tough most of the times. Sometimes all you can do is accept all of the challenges without even knowing how to face them. When life throws you lemons, make lemonade as the cliche goes by. Make the most out of those challenges. There are times wherein I don’t know what to do, I almost came to the point wherein I asked Him why are we having this kind of problem? Why can’t everything be just okay? Plain and simple? I realized that life without circumstances is just so boring. Challenges just adds up to our life’s adventure. Just like a french fries that’s needed to be poured with salt for it to taste good.

As I surrendered myself to Him, I finally know how to calm when there’s struggles. When I remember the three verses above, I know that it’s God himself talking to me that just keep calm and that he’s on hold of everything. When in doubt, pray. When confused, pray. Now I know that everything is part of His plans. We just have to trust and have faith in Him.
