CLARITY AND DIRECTION!

4-23-2015. . . .CLARITY AND DIRECTION!

"If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him; he will not resent it.  But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to tell you, for a doubtful mind will be as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind; and every decision you then make will be uncertain, as you turn first this way and then that. If you don't ask with faith, don't expect the Lord to give you any solid answer." (James 1:5-7 TLB)  A life of significance is a life lived with clarity and direction.  God never intended for life to be an enigma to us, nor for us to simply wonder aimlessly through it without purpose or direction.  We know God is the giver of life, but far to often many fail to call on Him and depend upon Him as the director of life!  Need clarity and direction. . . .ask the giver and director of life and He will freely give you what you ask!


PRAYER: Lord, you are the giver and director of life!  Give us your wisdom and guidance so that we may live a life of significance and accomplish all your purpose.  Amen!

Jer 33:2-3. . . .Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.' NIV

BE AWARE, BE PREPARED!

5-22-2015. . . .BE AWARE, BE PREPARED!

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." (Eccl 3:1 KJV)  In life things change and nothing stays the same.  To live life without anticipation and expectation of such, is to live life being constantly caught off guard and unprepared for any future opportunities and inevitable opposition.  Therefore, be aware and prepared mentally, physically, financially, and most importantly, spiritually.  In all things trust God who controls our times and seasons!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for giving us wisdom to understand that all things in life change!  Help us to always be aware and prepared for change when it comes.  Amen!

Dan 2:20-21. . . ."Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them.  He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning." (NIV)

LIVE THE LIFE!

5-17-2015. . . .LIVE THE LIFE!

"For Jehovah God is our Light and our Protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will he withhold from those who walk along his paths.   O Lord of the armies of heaven, blessed are those who trust in you." (Ps 84:11-12 TLB) No apologies necessary and no explanation required for your blessings!  If people really want to understand the favor that is on your life, invite them to live the life! What God has done for others, He will do the same for all who put their trust in Him!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for your favor.  We honor you Jehovah Sabaoth!  Amen.

Ps 37:4-6. . . .Be delighted with the Lord. Then he will give you all your heart's desires. 5 Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him to help you do it, and he will.  TLB

SEIZE THE MOMENT!

4-16-2015. . . .SEIZE THE MOMENT!

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. (Gal 6:10 NIV)  There is always opportunity to do good to all people, and especially to believers.  The problem is, we don't often seize the moment.   Sometimes unintentionally, but sadly, other times very much intentionally.  It's always right to do right so SEIZE THE MOMENT!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for every opportunity you give us to treat others well.  By doing so, we demonstrate to the world we belong to you. Amen!

Eph 5:8-9. . . . For though once your heart was full of darkness, now it is full of light from the Lord, and your behavior should show it!  Because of this light within you, you should do only what is good and right and true. TLB

LIFE'S POTENTIAL!



4-15-2015. . . .LIFE'S POTENTIAL!

"Moses was 120 years old when he died, yet his eyesight was perfect and he was as strong as a young man." (Deut 34:7-8 TLB)  With God, all things are possible even life-long health, strength and prosperity.  Don't allow bad life choices to diminish life's potential!   When we take care of God's business, God takes care of us!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for giving us life-long health, strength and prosperity in order that we may carry out and complete your divine purpose in us!  Amen!

Mark 10:27. . . .And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. KJV

IT'S NECESSARY!

4-14-2015. . . .IT IS NECESSARY!

"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:" (Eph 4:11-13 KJV)  Purpose is only fulfilled through process.  Each of us has a purpose and God has equipped and gifted special people that will help perfect (bring to completion) our purpose if we are willing to submit to the perfecting process.  Admittedly, it is not always easy or comfortable, but it is necessary.   

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for placing in each of us your divine purpose.  Thank you also for those you have placed in our life to perfect our purpose.  Help us to willing submit to the perfecting process.  Amen!

1 Peter 5:10-11. . . . But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.   To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.  KJV

STOPS AND STEPS!

4-10-15. . . STEPS AND STOPS!

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way."  Ps 37:23 KJV  Our journey to destiny is laid out; every step has been ordered (arranged) by the Lord.  In addition to ordering our steps, He also orders our stops!  While stops are not always desirable, they are necessary for rest, refreshment, and refueling.  As we proceed on our journey to destiny, don't despise the stops!  Our stops empower our steps!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for ordering our steps and our stops as we journey toward our destiny. Continue to give us rest, refreshment, and the refueling we need to complete the journey.  Amen!

Ps 1:6. . . . For the Lord watches over all the plans and paths of godly men, but the paths of the godless lead to doom. TLB
