Walk By Faith, Not By Sight


2 Corinthians 5:7 – We are to walk by FAITH and not by sight.

WOW! So, powerful few words that were ever written in God’s Word.

Please read all the scriptures in the devotion below. You can read the entire scpritures in John chapter 11. I will add important life facts at the end.

I even think of Mary and Martha when Jesus delayed and Lazarus was put in the grave. They wondered why Jesus tarried. Even to the point, that when Jesus arrived, Martha said, ” Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.”

But, still when Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise again.”
She still questioned Jesus. And it says, “Jesus Wept.”

Jesus did not wept because Lazarus was dead, He wept because of their unbelief, their lack of faith.

And Jesus could not do a thing until Martha and Mary gave Him permission to show them that He was the resurrection and the life.

When Jesus said, “Remove the stone.” They said, Lord by this time there is a stench for he has been dead four days.”

Jesus said to them, “:Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”

Then they took the stone away and Jesus said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. And I know that You always hear Me. but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”

And we know the end of the story. Lazarus came forth! And Jesus said, “Loose him, and let him go.”

I, Myself, have had such a great burden in the passed year or so. I have prayed and not understood at times why things were going the way they were in areas of our lives.

I myself, had concerned so much that it was getting to me, and my health, but still I prayed.

But, a few weeks ago I told God, “Father God, you have to take care of this situation. I place it totally in Your hands. Father God give wisdom, knowledge, comprehension and commonsense where it is needed. Father God, I today turn it completely over to you.”

Friends, I can say that tonight, I will rest soundly. Tonight I do not have a heavy heart anymore. For God answered my prayers and others as they were needed in His timing  not mine. And friends, God is always on time, even if it seems four days late.

So, tonight I Praise God for His answered prayers and blessing. I am singing praising to Him and Him alone.

For today, I learned and remembered the scripture, we must walk by faith and not by sight.

Blessings, Love, and Prayers,

Let’s Get Our Act Together


Let’s Get Our Acts Together
Written By: Pastor Pat Aman
July 7, 2016

“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
II Chronicles 7:14

It is so sad tonight to see what had happen in Dallas, Texas. 11 officers were shot. 5 of them died. 1 civilian was also shot.
Also, sad that two lives were already taken earlier this week in Louisiana and Minnesota.

America is killing America

I will tell you now, I have faced this personally. I have dealt with racism first hand.

I will tell you now, I have faced this personally. As I, and many throughout the USA were going to begin school with all creeds, nationalities and colors my school was burnt to the ground.

In 1968 the phone rung at 5:00am, and I answered to the voice saying look at your window.

As I did I saw red flames and black smoke coming from the school I had attended since the 4th grade. I would of been entering the 9th grade that very morning.

I went to my parents bedroom and awoke them with the news.

This became a very long and hard year for our small town.

Our town became a target to be burnt down.

We had National Guard and The Military base surrounding our town to protect us from buses load of people coming into our town to kill and burn it down.

This just brings to memory what a high official of the Russia government said about America.

I have this quote below.

Church stop fighting, gossiping, and letting jealousy bring our churches down. Our churches have got so busy with business and playing church, instead of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Instead of acting like the world, let’s get our act together, and repent and ask God to come back into our churches and our nation.

The prophets prophesy falsely. Jeremiah 14:14 says that they lie in my name. I sent them not, neither did I command them.

The word of God says in the book of Matthew that these are the days of sorrow and vengeance.

Fires destroy homes, and land kills people. Bridges fall in and kill. Tornadoes kill and destroy homes. Hurricanes destroy and kill. Floods all over the world destroy homes and kill. Droughts destroy and kill livestock and grain. Wars kill many of our young men.

Amos in the Old Testament says, “Seek me and ye shall live.”

I know you are saying, Pastor Pat, are you blaming the church? NO! But I am blaming Christians including myself for letting our freedoms and rights be taken away from us.

I am blaming Christians including myself for letting prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance for be taking out of our schools.

WHY? Because we have sit back and warmed the pew too long, instead of warming our knees at the alter.

Our country was established on Christians standards and beliefs and only we as Christians can take the responsibility for them being taken away.

So, just maybe instead of going to church this Sunday, listening to another message, then going home, eating and taking a nap, we need to go and tarry around the alter until we break through Heavens gates straight to the heart of God. God does say, “If my people…!”

A Russian leader said years ago that America will destroy herself within, not with war or by war.

“We will take America without firing a shot … we will bury you!

“We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism.

“We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.”

This is a quote attributed to the late Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.

Sounds like a wise man, a modern day Nostradamus — and also a man who helped Stalin murder hundreds of thousands of political opponents in Russia.

I know everyone who intends to vote already has choosen their candidate. I beg you to keep in mind that freedoms we have enjoyed in the past are being taken from us a little at a time, just as Khrushchev predicted.
I think its time to turn this country around, starting now, on our knees.

God is calling you to His Table.
God is calling you to His Table.

Sometimes in our lives we wonder why things just do not seem to go right. We try and try, but always come to a road block. You may even know that God has something special for you but you just seem to never be able to grab the brass ring.

Well, today let me tell you in eight words what you need to do.

Author: Pastor Pat Aman 2009/16

You have been feasting on yesterday’s bread too long, and because of this you have become stagnant. You need to return to God’s table and feast on some new Manna from Heaven.

Nutritionists will tell you that when you are trying to lose weight that you must lower you calorie intake. When you do this you will lose weight. But then there may come a time that you stop losing weight. You hit a plateau. You may still be exercising and doing the same thing that made you lose the weight before, but you seem to not be losing anymore weight. .

They then tell you when this happens you need to increase you calorie intake up maybe even about 400 calories a day to trick your body into change. In other words you body has gotten use to the old routine and it is just satisfied at where it is, and does not want to change. As you increase your calorie intake you body thinks wow, what is going on, more food, so it will start to burn calories again. Your metabolism will kick back into high gear to start burning the extra calories that you are eating. Even if you maybe just increased your proteins and lower carbohydrates.

It is the same way with your spiritual body. When you first get saved you pray and read your Bible. You want to learn everything you can about your new life in Jesus. You are running at full speed. You are filling your spiritual tank each day with new Manna from above.

Then all of a sudden life happens and you start to fill yourself with the complication of the world. You run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. Soon the garbage piles up.

Why? Because you are feeding less at the table of God. You become stagnant. You seem to be at a standstill, and going nowhere. You have used your entire spiritual calorie intake, and you just feel awful, depressed, and do not have the energy to do what God has called you to do anymore.

Well friends, Go back to the table. You have feasted on yesterday bread too long, and it has run out, so now it times to learn some new things. It is time to seek God for your family and yourselves.
As you feast at the table of God, you will soon realize that, hey, I am now going in the right direction. I know what God has called me to do. Hey, life if getting better daily.

See, you are adding some new calories to you spiritual diet. Calories of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, common sense, and now you are able to comprehend exactly what God is saying to you.

So, friends go back to the table, read your Bible. Pray and Spend time with you Heavenly Father and see your life change and grow in the Lord.

John 6:22-35
The Bread from Heaven
22 On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone—

23 however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks—

24 when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.

25 And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?”

26 Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.

27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

28 Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”

29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God that you believe in Him whom He sent.”

30 Therefore they said to Him, “What sign will you perform then, that we may see it and believe you? What work will you do?

31 Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”

32 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.

33 For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”

35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

Jesus said to us, “Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life.” What is the prime goal of our lives? For what are we working? Just as bread supplies our bodies with strength and nourishment, Jesus, the true bread from heaven, came to strengthen and nourish his people—to change their lives, to bring spiritual and eternal life to all who would believe in him! Jesus offers the ultimate spiritual satisfaction: if we believe in him, we will never hunger or thirst.

What are you working for? You may live in a big house, wear designer clothing, own property, and eat expensive meals, you will still be hungry if you do not have Jesus in your life. And you may live in a not so big house and not have brand name clothes, and still be hungry if you do not have Jesus in your life. See, it does not matter your circumstances, all that matters is do you know Jesus?

Are you still hungry for something? What bread do you need? Do not work for the bread that is perishable. Do not waste your life for the bread that makes you hungry again. Work for the bread that you can share with the unfortunate, and have the bread of faith from heaven, that eternally satisfies your hunger.

Law of the Garbage Truck
Author Unknown

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were
driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a
parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his
brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’ This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so….Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

So friends, go back to the table and give God your garbage. He knows what to do with it.

Your Bucket List

What is on your bucket list?
What is something that you may need to conquer, face or maybe just complete in your life?

I just got back from spending time helping my sister who 84.

One of the things I think I realized was she is not 50 years old anymore. I saw a person who is saved and ready to go to Heaven, and still continually shares the Gospel of Jesus to the world, and prays for everyone she sees, but deep inside has a concern that she is slowly losing her independence.

Yes, she is no longer able to do the things she use to do. And I will tell you that she has always been the person to help others. She would do without so others would not be without.

As a matter of fact if people would stop and think about it, they would line up at her door just to say thank you.

But, I do know as I heard her pray every night, “Lord, as long as I can be a service to you, let me stay and do your work, but, Lord, I am ready to come home when you call me.”

You know, just as she is, we can also be confident that the good work He began in her, you and me, He will complete in each of us.

Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; (Philippians 1:6)

We must believe that we were created by God for a special assignment for him. We are not here by mistake, and we are not a mistake.

Remember, God’s Word.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)

So, let’s set our eyes on the brass ring as they say, and grab it.

Because, Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:8-9)

Will I ride the bull. I will let you know later.

Love, Blessings and Prayers,
Pastor Pat.
