10-13-2015. . . .HEALING AND HEALTH TO ALL!

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. " (Prov 16:24 KJVEveryone in need of healing is not in a hospital or confined to a bed.  There are many "walking wounded" all around us!  We have the capacity to bring heath and healing to their soul by simply speaking a kind and pleasant word to them.  Because the walking wounded are not clearly identifiable, lets try speaking kind and pleasant words to everybody; that way no one will be missed, healing and heath will come to all!   

PRAYER: Lord, let everyone that crosses our path receive healing and health through the words we speak to them.  Amen!

Prov 12:18. . . .Some people like to make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise soothe and heal. TLB

10-9-2015. . . .MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT!

"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."  (1 Cor 15:58 NIV) Serving the Lord will not only pay off after while, but it pays dividends now day by day!  Make every day count!

PRAYER: Lord, may the work that we have done and are doing for you daily make a difference and have lasting kingdom impact!  Amen!

John 9:4. . . .I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.  KJV

10/8/2015. . . .A LOSING AFFAIR!

"And let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't get discouraged and give up."  (Gal 6:9-10 TLB)  One of the easiest things in the world to do is give up, especially when one losses hope and becomes discouraged!  The thing about giving up is, we lose the time and effort it took to get us to that place of decision, as well as, the reward and satisfaction of seeing a thing through to the end!  Keep on doing what is right and don't let your efforts become a losing affair!

PRAYER: Lord, strengthen us in our struggles as we strive to do what is right and complete our life assignments.  Amen!

Heb 10:35-37. . . . Do not let this happy trust in the Lord die away, no matter what happens. Remember your reward!   You need to keep on patiently doing God's will if you want him to do for you all that he has promised. TLB

"Then Satan tempted him to get food by changing stones into loaves of bread.  "It will prove you are the Son of God," he said.  But Jesus told him, "No! For the Scriptures tell us that bread won't feed men's souls: obedience to every word of God is what we need."  (Matt 4:3-4 TLB)  We owe Satan and his representatives no explanation about who we are, but only to be who God says we are!  God made us; it is He and He alone that determines and affirms are identity.

PRAYER: Lord, you alone have determined and defined our identity.  We are who you say we are and there in we abide and walk.  Amen.

Ps 139:13-16. . . . Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous-and how well I know it. You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion!  You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!  TLB

10-6-2015. . . .DON'T GIVE UP! 

"Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise." ( Heb 10:35-36  KJV)  Never end up on the side of giving up watching the promise pass you by!  Trust God and don't give up!

PRAYER: Lord, if we can trust you for one thing, we can trust you for everything! 

Ps 138: 8. . . . The Lord will work out his plans for my life-for your loving-kindness, Lord, continues forever. Don't abandon me-for you made me. TLB

10-2-15. . . .DO YOU WANT TO ESCAPE!

"So be careful. If you are thinking, "Oh, I would never behave like that"-let this be a warning to you.For you too may fall into sin.  But remember this-the wrong desires that come into your life aren't anything new and different. Many others have faced exactly the same problems before you. And no temptation is irresistible. You can trust God to keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it, for he has promised this and will do what he says. He will show you how to escape temptation's power so that you can bear up patiently against it." ( 1 Cor 10:12-13 TLB)  If we think we are beyond being tempted to sin, we deceive ourselves and are set up for a certain fall.  When we are tempted, we are drawn away by the very thing we secretly desire in our hearts.  Its a tough situation to be in, but not impossible to escape.  God is faithful!  He makes a way of escape for us!  The question each of us must ask our self when we are tempted is, do I really want to escape?

PRAYER: Lord, help us to be honest with our self and acknowledge the hidden unpleasing desires we have that enables Satan to tempt us.  Thank you for being faithful and providing a way of escape. Help us to want to escape.  Amen.

James 1:13-16. . . . And remember, when someone wants to do wrong it is never God who is tempting him, for God never wants to do wrong and never tempts anyone else to do it. Temptation is the pull of man's own evil thoughts and wishes. These evil thoughts lead to evil actions and afterwards to the death penalty from God.  So don't be misled, dear brothers. TLB

10-1-2015. . . .BE DIFFERENT!

"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you."  (Rom 12:1-2 TLB)  Living in this world with all it's heavy influences in every aspect of life, it is difficult not to adopt its ways and behaviors. Nevertheless, we are called to be unique and to be more of an influence in the world than we are influenced by the world.  Strive to maintain your created image and likeness; don't allow the world to distort it.

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for creating us in your own image and likeness.  Help us and strengthen us to be more of an influence in the world than we are influenced by the world.  Amen!

1 Peter 2:9. . . .But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: KJV
