8-29-2014. . . .HE WILL ANSWER!

"Hear my prayer, O Lord; answer my plea because you are faithful to your promises."  (Ps 143:1 TLB)  We need not ever fear to come to God in our times of need.  With assurance we can ask in confidence knowing that in His faithfulness, He will answer us!

PrayerLord, thank you for hearing and answering our prayers!

Ps 92:2-4. . . .
 Every morning tell him, "Thank you for your kindness," and every evening rejoice in all his faithfulness.  Sing his praises, accompanied by music from the harp and lute and lyre.  You have done so much for me, O Lord. No wonder I am glad! I sing for joy. TLB

8-28-2014. . . .STRENGTH AND PEACE! 

"The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace."  (Ps 29:11 KJV)  Two things we can expect from the Lord, "Strength and Peace!"  With these, we can make it through and endure anything.  With strength we can do the things that need to be done in the situation; with peace we can maintain our sanity while doing it!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for strength and peace!  Amen.

John 14:27. . . . "I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn't fragile like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid." TLB

8-27-2014. . . .COMMAND AND CONTROL!

"And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.  And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?  (Mark 4:39-40 KJV)  In the mist of every storm remember, Jesus can still command peace and cause everything to settle down and be still.  It's called Command and Control!  All that's required of us is faith.

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for having command and control over all storms that may arise in our lives.  Help us to have faith that does not weaver and faint.  Amen!

Mark 11:22-23. . . .And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. KJV

8-26-2014. . . .NOW I UNDERSTAND!

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Phil 4:7 KJV)  The peace of God is way beyond understanding until one experiences it!  Then, one understands!  

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for your peace that is beyond understanding, but so wonderful to experience.

Col 3:15. . . .Let the peace of heart that comes from Christ be always present in your hearts and lives, for this is your responsibility and privilege as members of his body. And always be thankful. TLB

8-22-2014. . . .NO STUMBLING BLOCK!

"O God, you know so well how stupid I am, and you know all my sins. O Lord God of the armies of heaven, don't let me be a stumbling block to those who trust in you. O God of Israel, don't let me cause them to be confused, though I am mocked and cursed and shamed for your sake."  (Ps 69:5-7 TLB)   As our age increases, concurrently our stupidity and folly should be decreasing.  Hopefully and prayerfully, any residual is not a hindrance nor stumbling block to others.

PRAYER: Lord, help us to daily mature in you.  Let not any of our residual folly be a hindrance or stumbling block to others.  Amen!

1 John 1:8-9. . . .If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth.  But if we confess our sins to him, he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong.  And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins.

8-21-2014. . . . BE WISE!

"The wise man saves for the future, but the foolish man spends whatever he gets."  (Prov 21:20 TLB)  Save nothing and you will have nothing!  No one will lend to a fool.  Be wise!

PRAYER: Lord, teach us to be wise in our spending and prepare now for our future and that of our families. Amen.

Prov 13:22. . . . A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.  KJV

8-20-2014. . . .ONLY A FOOL!

"That man is a fool who says to himself, "There is no God!" Anyone who talks like that is warped and evil and cannot really be a good person at all."  (Ps 14:1 TLB)  Everyone has the right to think and feel how they think and feel; but a fool, and only a fool could and would claim that there is no God!

PRAYER: Lord thank you that we are not fools; we know you exist!  We join in the chorus of heaven and earth daily declaring your glory. Amen!

Ps 19:1-3. . . . The heavens are telling the glory of God; they are a marvelous display of his craftsmanship. Day and night they keep on telling about God.  Without a sound or word, silent in the skies, their message reaches out to all the world. TLB
