1 Timothy 6:17-21 (NIV) – Build Your Hope On Things Eternal
17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds,and to be generous and willing to share.19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
20 Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge,21 which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith.
8But you are to hold fast to the LORD your God, as you have until now. 9“The LORD has driven out before you great and powerful nations; to this day no one has been able to withstand you. 10One of you routs a thousand, because the LORD your God fights for you, just as he promised. 11So be very careful to love the LORD your God. 12“But if you turn away and ally yourselves with the survivors of these nations that remain among you and if you intermarry with them and associate with them, 13then you may be sure that the LORD your God will no longer drive out these nations before you. Instead, they will become snares and traps for you, whips on your backs and thorns in your eyes, until you perish from this good land, which the LORD your God has given you. 14“Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed. 15But just as all the good things the LORD your God has promised you have come to you, so he will bring on you all the evil things he has threatened, until the LORD your God has destroyed you from this good land he has given you. 16If you violate the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and go and serve other gods and bow down to them, the LORD’s anger will burn against you, and you will quickly perish from the good land he has given you.”
Our prayer for you today is that you be blessed, prosperous and in good health. We are sending out a special prayer to all of the bereaved families, especially the Caples, Rushing and Williams family in the loss of their son, and brother, Little James. He is in heaven, safely resting in the arms of God! We extent to this entire family our sincere prayers, our deepest heartfelt sympathy, and condolences.
Acts 17:24-27 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth. He doesn’t live in shrines made by human hands, and he isn’t served by people as if he needed anything. He himself gives everyone life, breath, and everything else. From one man he made every nation of humanity to live all over the earth, fixing the seasons of the year and the national boundaries within which they live, so that they might look for God, somehow reach for him, and find him. Of course, he is never far from any one of us.”
Today’s message is simple: Learn to lean on Jesus! When we learn to love and lean on him, our lives becomes easier. Our burdens become lighter, and our lives seem to change for the betterment. It’s nothing magical, but it all comes with accepting Christ and being a believer. God gives you hope and every determination in the world to hold on to, and every reason to believe that you can’t live without him. I’ve concluded that I don’t want to live without Christ in my life. He is our savior, and he died for our every sin. He is almighty and all-knowing, and he will be right by your side when you feel like all hope is gone. In the midnight hour when you need someone to lean on , he’s right there. God is our provider. He is the great I am, and I can’t live without him. He is easy to love and I feel his presence all around me. We can see his beauty everywhere we go. From the desert to the sea, his beauty is all around me, I just can’t’ live without you. Thank you Jesus! Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Jesus for saving a soul like me!
When we love Jesus our brothers and sisters become easier to love because Jesus is so easy to love, and his love is so wonderful and so overwhelming. In this life, we must take the time to encourage and love on one another and stop tearing each other down and learn to build each other up in love. If we profess Jesus as our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, we should start acting like it! It a shame that there seems to be no difference in some of the people who profess to be saved, then the laymen you meet on the streets. I said that to say this: Something is wrong. In our Christian faith, most of our churches lack love. We have the right message but most of our churches practice the wrong method. Let’s get back to LOVE and holiness and stop being so judgemental toward one another and catch the fish before you try to clean it up. That’s another message. Yes, it’s right. Let’s start with loving God’s people first, and then learn how to treat our neighbor right so the next man can want to accept Jesus Christ and say: They can’t live with Jesus either because he is the great I am and we do serve a mighty and wonderful God!!! Remember this: God doesn’t need us, we need Him.! Jesus, we can’t live without you!
26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.
Isaiah 61:1 (KJV)
61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
“God wants you to bring your concerns to Him. Yet two things can keep Him from giving you what you ask for: sin—going against His will, or asking for something that goes against His will. God knows what’s best for you, but because sin separates you from Him, you must turn to His Son, Jesus Christ, who paid the price for your sins. When you do, the barrier is removed and God hears your prayers.”

Joshua 23:8-16 (MSG)8 Hold tight to God, your God, just as you’ve done up to now. 9 “God has driven out superpower nations before you. And up to now, no one has been able to stand up to you.10Think of it – one of you, single-handedly, putting a thousand on the run! Because God is God, your God. Because he fights for you, just as he promised you. 11“Now, vigilantly guard your souls: Love God, your God. 12 Because if you wander off and start taking up with these remaining nations still among you (intermarry, say, and have other dealings with them), 13know for certain that God, your God, will not get rid of these nations for you. They’ll be nothing but trouble to you – horsewhips on your backs and sand in your eyes – until you’re the ones who will be driven out of this good land that God, your God, has given you. 14“Asyou can see, I’m about to go the way we all end up going. Know this with all your heart, with everything in you, that not one detail has failed of all the good things God, your God, promised you. It has all happened. Nothing’s left undone – not so much as a word 15“But just as sure as everything good that God, your God, has promised has come true, so also God will bring to pass every bad thing until there’s nothing left of you in this good land that God has given you. 16 If you leave the path of the Covenant of God, your God, that he commanded you, go off and serve and worship other gods, God’s anger will blaze out against you. In no time at all there’ll be nothing left of you, no sign that you’ve ever been in this good land he gave you.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. 4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. 5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord. 7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. 8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. 9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. 12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. 13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. 14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”

God’s LOVE gives us a message of hope, strength, and perseverance. The word of God has made its way around the world reaching so many souls as we continue to fight the good fight of FAITH spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to all the world that will accept and believe in him.
The word of God gives us a message of hope and it offers us so many ways of escape to NEVER give up! Hold on to God with everything you have on this 5th day of January, 2018. In the book of 1 Corinthians 10:13 says: “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
Let’s practice spreading Kindness and Love to one another because we don’t know what the person next to us is going through. Let’s learn to uplift each other, instead of tearing each other down.
Please know that WIFI Ministries, along with many other believers are praying for you to assure you that you can make it! Hang in there and please know that there is hope and you can make it!! Say this verse with me: “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” ~Philippians 4:13
Much love to each of you, and DON’T GIVE UP! KEEP GOING, BECAUSE ONE DAY YOU WILL GET YOU GET YOUR CROWN!
(Cites: we do not own any rights to this song: ” Can’t Give Up Now it is being used for inspirational purposes only.)
Galatians 6:9 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
It seems in this day and age we live in, we find people everywhere seeking for unconditional, genuine love. People want love, but most are unwilling or may I say incapable of really loving another human being the way they really want to be love. So, I pose the question on this 4th day of January, 2018: WHERE IS THE LOVE?
I’m glad you asked… Well, in the book of John, the 3rd chapter and the 16th verse describes the greatest love of God when he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus that you and I may have the right to the tree of life. If that’s not love, then I don’t know what love is! In today’s world, that would be asking way to much according to the standards that most of us live by. That would be considered ultra crazy love! You can barely ask someone for a piece a bread, let alone give their life for you. Aren’t you glad that we serve an exceptional God!
We all know that there are so many different types of love, but the love I want to focus on is God’s love. God’s love is patient, and God’s love is kind. God’s love is forgiving. God’s love is everlasting. God’s love is free. God’s love reciprocal. God’s love is ever-present. God’s love is contagious. God’s love is everlasting! God’s love everything you and I need. I could go on forever about God’s love because I’m so grateful that he would think enough of you and I to die for us. We serve a loving and kind God!
When I think of all the love God pours into us, all I can do is tell God THANK YOU! Thank you God for loving me! Thank you God for not giving up on me! Thank you God for saving me! Thank you God for looking after me when I couldn’t look after myself. Thank you God for being there for me when I felt all alone. Thank you God for providing for me and making a way out no way. Thank you God for taking care of my family and friends. Thank you God for healing and keeping me. Thank you God for listening to me! Thank you God for loving us unconditionally. I see the love. I feel the love. I hear the love. I want God’s love. We have to get to a point in life where we desire real love. Most of us have a tendency to push real love away.
I am here to serve notice today and let you know that God is love! Everywhere you look you see the love! Let’s learn to love one another and stop beating each other down with our mean and nasty words and our intimidating ways. It’s better when we learn to kill each other with our kindness and love. Yes, I couldn’t agree more that it’s hard to love people who you know do not love or care about you, but we must love them anyways because God has commanded us to! He didn’t command us to like their ways, but he did command us to love them because one of God’s greatest commandments is LOVE!
◄ Philippians 3:13 ► “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Day one was awesome at WIFI ministries, and we pray your day one was as blessed and excited as ours. Continue to pray, pursue, and progress in the things of God and the many of tasks that are put before you. As we were in prayer this morning, I was reminded of the Apostle Paul when he was physically locked up in prison writing letters — He may have been locked up and not physically free, but he was free in his spirit which allowed his mind to be free and his heart to overflow with joy. You see, they could up his physical body but they could not lock up his spirit and his creativity that was inside of his soul. He was able to write the book of Philippians, Philemon, and the book of Colossians while being locked up in prison.
We must learn how to keep our minds and hearts free to continue to move forward in life. No matter what is thrown at us or whatever comes our way, if we TRUST in God and his most holy word, we will be able to stand and press our way through tough and difficult times!
Psalm 27:4 says: “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.” We must learn how to assemble ourselves and fill our soul with God’s word so we may be able to stand against the devil when he comes with his antics and tactics!
I pray this post has helped somebody to keep going, and press toward your mark and goals that you are trying to reach!
We love you all, and know that we are yet pressing our way on this second day of January, two-thousand-eighteen! #2018

Don’t forget to pray!!! Prayer will help you to keep going and meet yours goals! You have to have FAITH and BELIEVE!!!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
◄ Proverbs 16:3 ► ‘;Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
We would like to take some time to wish all of our family, friends, subscribers, and visitors a Happy New Year! We pray that this year will be a year of good health, prosperity, love, peace, joy, and happiness for you and your entire family!
We made it, and we are so excited that you did too! God has great and wonderful blessings in store for you! Keep your eyes on the prize and continue to pray, trust and believe that the loving God that we serve never fails and will come through!
Now, let’s set some goals if you haven’t already. It’s good to have a plan as we journey through life. Plan your future and set realistic goals that are attainable. It’s important that we start with our physical and mental health which is the first step to wealth and happiness. It’s a fact that if you feel good, you are more apt to do good! Our job is to help you succeed, and we can continue to pray your strength in the Lord that everything you want comes to pass. We believe at World In Focus International that you must STAY CONNECTED TO GOD and your world will come into focus! Also, we must do as our key scripture has instructed above: “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed!” ~ Proverbs 6:3
Much love to each of you and we pray that #2018 will be a prosperous year of success and blessings!!!

1 For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven; 3 inasmuch as we, having put it on, shall not be found naked. 4 For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed, but to be clothed, in order that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge. 6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord—7 for we walk by faith, not by sight—8 we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore also we have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences. 12 We are not again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an occasion to be proud of us, that you may have an answer for those who take pride in appearance, and not in heart. 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. 16 Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
