KNOWING AND KEEPING!

10-22-2014. . . .KNOWING AND KEEPING!

"The person who knows my commandments and keeps them, that's who loves me. And the person who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and make myself plain to him." (John 14:21 MSG)  Knowing God's word and keeping it equates to knowing Him better.  Not keeping His word means that one is really not serious about knowing Him and therefore, they won't.  One proves who they know by what one does; what one does not do proves the same.

PRAYER: Lord, help us to prove to the world that we know and love you by faithfully keeping your word.  We keep your word because we love you and want to know you better.  Help Us!  Amen.

Prov 7:1-3. . . . My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.  Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.   Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. KJV

HELP NOT HURT!

10-17-2014. . . .HELP NOT HURT!

"My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, (James 1:19 NIV)  Words spoken without wisdom are like a surgeon's scalpel in the hand of the unskilled! That which was designed to help ends up hurting!  Be careful to speak words that help and not hurt.

PRAYER: Lord, may the words we speak always help and not hurt; heal and not hinder!  Amen!

James 1:19-20. . . .Dear brothers, don't ever forget that it is best to listen much, speak little, and not become angry;  for anger doesn't make us good, as God demands that we must be. TLB

SOONER OR LATER!

10-16-2014. . . .SOONER OR LATER!

". . . .Much is required from those to whom much is given, for their responsibility is greater."  (Luke 12:48b TLB)  One is still responsible even if one refuses to stand and take responsibility! NEWS FLASH!  An accounting will be required sooner are later.

PRAYER: Lord, you have given each of us much!  Help us daily to be responsible and accountable for that which you have given.  Amen

2 Cor 5:9-10. . . . Sooner or later we'll all have to face God, regardless of our conditions. We will appear before Christ and take what's coming to us as a result of our actions, either good or bad. MSG

KNOW HIS WILL PRAY HIS WORD!

10-15-2014. . . .KNOW HIS WILL PRAY HIS WORD!

"And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him."  (1 John 5:14-15 KJV) God is not technical: He is faithful.  His will is clearly expressed by His word.  To experience manifestation, know His will and pray His word!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for your word.  By it we know your will and experience your faithfulness in performing everything you have said.  Amen.

Jer 1:11-12. . . . Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.  Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. KJV

PERSPECTIVE ADJUSTMENT!

10-14-2014. . . .PERSPECTIVE ADJUSTMENT!

"Don't refuse to accept criticism; get all the help you can."  (Prov 23:12 TLB)  No one is always right especially when it comes to our perspective of our self!  How we see our self and how others view us could be totally different.   Consider constructive criticism from others as a 'perspective adjustment,'  designed to help us be and become our best self!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for placing people in my life that will tell me the truth about me.  Help me to receive that truth and make the necessary adjustments in order that I may be and become my best self!  Amen.

Prov 26:12. . . .There is one thing worse than a fool, and that is a man who is conceited. TLB

HEARTS AND MINDS ON TRIAL!

10-10-2014. . . .HEARTS AND MINDS ON TRIAL!

Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth. (Ps 26:2-3 NIV) Our hearts and minds should always be kept in such a state that if put on trial, they will be found innocent of any and all wrong doing.  Conversely, they should be found guilty of being filled with love, truth and righteousness. 

PRAYER: Lord, let your precious shed blood cleanse our hearts and minds continually so that we may be found forever innocent upon examination.  Amen!

Ps 51:7-11. . . . Sprinkle me with the cleansing blood and I shall be clean again. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.   And after you have punished me, give me back my joy again.  Don't keep looking at my sins-erase them from your sight.  Create in me a new, clean heart, O God, filled with clean thoughts and right desires.  TLB

LIVE POLLUTION FREE!

10-9-2014. . . .LIVE POLLUTION FREE!


Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. (Prov 4:23 NKJV)  Out of a pure heart will flow a pure life.  Be careful then, not to allow anything or anyone to pollute your spring!  

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for giving  us a new hearts out of  which flows a new and pure life.  Strengthen us daily to be diligent in guarding our heart from all pollutants and polluters.  Amen!

1 Tim 1:5. . . .  What I am eager for is that all the Christians there will be filled with love that comes from pure hearts, and that their minds will be clean and their faith strong. TLB
