Should we Speak for Others?

Speaking out may help those who do not know what to say. The above is a Painting I did of a Father and Child..

Proverbs: 31 v 8

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,

for the rights of all who are destitute.”

***

We do need to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves,

especially the little children,

the babies,

the unborn that people want to abort.

Speak up for those who cannot speak,

pray for them,

don’t let the devil have them.

Pray for those in the world who are destitute,

that they may come to know Jesus today.


The above is taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ here is the link if you would like to see the book. It is a daily devotional that can be used year after year.

So – what can we say to make things better for someone today….. well we could say ‘hello’ and ask how they are. Or we could speak to them on the phone, ask how they are and also maybe ask if they would like us to pray for anything special that they need. We can therefore speak up for them in regard to a prayer….. many people are not sure how to pray….. how to ask God our Heavenly Father for whatever they may be in need of.

Many, even some Christians are not sure if they can ask God for something for themselves.

They pray for others but feel they don’t like to ask for themselves.

However in the Bible it says ask and you will receive…..that of course is if you know Jesus as Lord of your life….. i.e. that you have invited Him into your heart.

We can speak out and ask for other peoples needs. Also remember we can ask someone else to pray for us.

In the world we need to speak up in our communities, our towns, our villages when we see a need that others cannot speak up about. That is another way we can look after each other, wherever we live.

Let us Pray…… Let us speak up for others.

* I hope you have a lovely day today with your family and friends *

Faithfulness’ ?

A Bouquet of Flowers is beautiful

2 Timothy: Chapter 2 verse 13

If we are faithless,

He will remain faithful,

for He cannot disown himself.

*

When we belong to Jesus and our faith seems to desert us,

remember that He is still faithful to us.

He is always there.

Even today right this minute Jesus is faithful to us.

Let us pray and ask that our faith be refreshed and renewed today Amen.

*

The above is taken from the book:

‘Drink from the Cup” of Heavenly Blessings straight from God’s Word in the Holy Bible.

*

So what about faithfulness to our love ones and families?

Are we faithful and loving towards them?

What does it mean to be faithful?

I will look it up in the dictionary !

*

Here we are then:

It means amongst other things to be trustworthy, loyal, constant.

So are we faithful towards our family and friends?

Are we faithful to God our Heavenly Father?

We do need to have faith in The Lord Jesus to be faithful to our Father in Heaven.

How do you feel about that?

Have you invited Jesus into your life so you can practice being faithful day by day in your everyday living?

We do need help to remain faithful, especially to those of our family who come against us sometimes, we cannot just leave them and go our own way. We need to be faithful and stay to sort out any problems they have with us or we have with them. Our Parents and children, also our friends, are precious not only to us but to God our Heavenly Father. He loves them even more than we do. So if He can forgive them – we should make an effort to do so – that means to stay faithful to them day by day.

Sometimes it make take a big effort on our part to stay faithful but it is something special that we can do even when we do not feel like it!

Let us be faithful to our Heavenly Father who loves each one of us as if there were only one of us. However – we do know that He loves each one of us just as we are…. Praise the Lord that He does – He is faithful to us – His Love never changes He is the same today, yesterday and forever.

I pray you have a lovely day today and can remain faithful to your love one ‘s and that I can hopefully do the same with the help of The Holy Spirit in my life.

Keep Watch

Matthew: Chapter 24 verse 42

Therefore keep watch,

because you do not know

on what day your Lord will come.

***

How do we keep watch?

Well – I believe that to keep watch is to try to be ready,

to have our house in order.

That is to say – have our hearts prepared,

ready and waiting just incase it is today

– that Jesus comes.

The above us taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’

Here is the Link for this book: https://www.amazon.com.au/Drink-Heavenly-Blessings-straight-Bible-ebook/dp/B08F2YC95L/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=drink+from+the+cup&qid=1598250253&s=books&sr=1-4

You can use this book year after year. It has recently been republished to go on the internet – I have been using this little book daily for at least 20years and each day there is something special for us to read and to know. Praise The Lord!

Let us continue to prepare out hearts while we wait for Jesus to come back to this Earth, that means me as well. Let us get rid of all unholy things that are in there. Like jealousy, hate, gossip, bitterness, strife, lies, covetousness, the list goes on and on, lets get rid of them and Praise The Lord ! We should then be more ready if today is the day that The Lord Jesus comes for us.

None of us can live forever on this Planet Earth, let us enjoy our life while we are here – remember we have The Holy Spirit to help us to overcome whatever it is we need to overcome. We have the love of Jesus with us and we have our Heavenly Father who hears all our prayers.

So let us Rejoice for – This is the day that The Lord has made –

let us Rejoice and be glad in it.

The Right Words

The Painting is of a Billabong in North West Australia that I painted in ‘Oils’

One of the lovely places that The Lord allows us see and to visit.

We do not have to worry about any right words to say about places like this

– just to look and enjoy them is enough.

***

Ephesians Chapter 6 verses 19-20.

Pray also for me, that when ever I open my mouth,

words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,

for which I am an ambassador in chains.

Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

***

It was Paul who said the above,

however I believe it applies to all of us who walk with Jesus and want to declare the Gospel.

Sometimes we feel that we are not free to declare the gospel but we are free

and must ask that The Lord make the way for us to speak out to those souls around us

who are in darkness who do not know Jesus.

Let us pray that when we open our mouths that the right words also be given to us today.

***

The above is taken from the Book.. ‘Drink from the Cup’

So there may be a lesson in the above for us to think about how we speak to our family and friends. It makes a lot of difference when we speak kindly to each other – not just about sharing the Gospel but in our everyday lives. Our children and friends know how we feel sometimes by the way that we are speaking. If we feel sad, happy, angry etc., they can know by the tone of our voice. Also if we condemn someone for doing wrong it is not good to shout at them, let us try to tell them in a kind way so they do not feel too bad about whatever it is we are trying to get them to put right. Well at least we can but try.

Our Treasures*

The Fascine – Carnarvon N.W. Australia.

Proverbs: Chapter 10 verse 2

Ill-gotten treasurers are of no value

but righteousness delivers from death.

*

That is true isn’t it? If we have something that we have received wrongly, however much we treasure it we will still have that feeling of guilt i.e. that it is an ill-gotten thing.

We really can’t take anything that we know God does not want us to have.

What a release in our spirit we feel when we give back or release those wrong Treasures.

Jesus forgives and we are back in righteousness, delivered from the feeling of death and can rejoice in our righteousness. Praise The Lord!

*

The above is taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by. J.M.R. Larman.

So what wonderful Treasures do we have that maybe we should not have? Perhaps they could be some ungodly Books, or ungodly D.V.D’s maybe C.D’s

What about all the Treasures on our Computers? Could be Treasure’s of ungodly photo’s – hidden in a file for privacy. But God can see all things whether they be righteous or unrighteous.

Let us search our hearts and get rid of all that is not O.K.

We don’t have to ask or tell anyone about it – just do it – ask Jesus for forgiveness – feel the release in our spirit and get on with life as it should be lived in Righteousness and Truth.

It is a lovely feeling to be able to share the Love of The Lord when we are really walking in a bit more holiness.

*Love is to Share *

A Lovely Bouquet of Flowers, can show Love to someone

1 Corinthians: Chapter 13 verse 1.

……. but if I have not love,

I am only a resounding gong

or a clanging cymbal.

***

Imagine being empty and sounding like a clanging cymbal,

we do need to be filled with love,

the kind of love that only Jesus can give us.

To receive His love so that we can give it out to others

we really must want the Love of God Our Heavenly Father

and of Jesus Christ His Son to be in our hearts.

By the Holy Spirit we then can share the Love of The Lord.

It is maybe our emotional part of who we are…it maybe our intellect….we may not be as clever as some people —- but —- we all have a Soul, we all have feelings. Feelings of love, sadness, joy, hopefulness plus other feelings of course. And we need to guard our Soul, it is precious, don’t let the devil have it. Let us try to walk in righteousness and truth all the days of our life on this Planet Earth. ***** I hope you have a lovely day today walking in the Love of The Lord Jesus who sent His Holy Spirit to be with us and to help us each day as we try to walk in the paths of RIGHTEOUSNESS. *

Do you Sing?

Do you like Singing?
Do you like Singing?

Psalm: 101 verse 1

I will sing of Your love and Justice;

To You, O LORD, I will sing praise.

***

It is lovely to sing praises to The LORD our God and to Jesus.

Have you ever asked The Holy Spirit to help you sing?

He is so lovely, I believe He loves to hear us singing.

Even quietly in our own prayer time we can ask The Holy Spirit to be with our singing.

It is good to make music.

So today maybe put some music on that you like to listen to – with one of your favourite people singing and then hopefully sing along with them while working around the house. It is amazing what singing can do for you, especially if you feel a bit down about things. Also if you are feeling happy put some happy music on.

The other thing to do sometimes is to put some Christian Songs on and sing- along with them and enjoy your day.

Enjoy your Singing.

The Link above you may like to look at. It is a book of daily readings that can be used year after year as it is not dated just for one year. The Lord has already blessed some people with the daily readings you never know what the Word of the Lord can be for you each day.

I Pray that you have a lovely Day today.

We are not Alone !

This Beautiful Sunset was captured on my camera after rain had covered the road showing the reflection of the Sunset in the water. Taken from my house looking towards the Yacht Club here in N.W. Australia.

John: Chapter 16 verse 31

……… Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.

***

As Christians we know that God our Father is with us. When Jesus went back to Heaven He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us – to teach, comfort and also to fellowship with us. Where The Holy Spirit is, there also are The Father and The Son. Just think how blessed we are – we are never alone!

(You may like to check out what the Word says in your Bible of the Scripture above)

As Christians – we are family

Well now – how about that? What do you think about being alone, do you think sometimes that you really are alone? Well even if we think that, sometimes we should remember that God our Heavenly Father can see us just where we are. If we are feeling lonely, sad, miserable and on our own, maybe we need to remember what the above verse says, whether we believe it or not as Christians The Holy Spirit of Jesus is always with us as He promised when He went back to Heaven.

So let us not be downcast or feel too lonely today, put on a happy face, dance and sing, talk to the dog (or cat) or whatever your pet maybe – if you have one. If not maybe put on some Christian music – the devil does not like that – because he has to flee away from you and from your loneliness… make a nice Cup of drink, have something to eat – to cheer you up.

A good idea is to phone a friend if you are really feeling very lonely, just to talk for a while makes a lot of difference to yourself and maybe also to the friend you are phoning. It is good to think of others in your circle of family and friends who maybe so pleased to hear your voice on the phone.

Hopefully your loneliness will just disappear, then you can Praise The Lord for His love toward you and begin to thank Him for all the Blessings He has given and will be giving you. (That goes for me as well) !

I hope you have a lovely day today – you may like to check out this Link for ‘Drink from the Cup’ book that the above Bible reading came from.

Celebrate Today

My Painting of a Madonna and Child

Matthew: Chapter 1 verse 21.

She will give birth to a son and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.

***

I am so glad that Mary was obedient, because if she had not given birth to Jesus where would you and I be today? It does not bear to think about it! Praise God today for the birth of Jesus who also was obedient to our Heavenly Father to the extent of dying on The Cross for yours and my sins. I Praise you Heavenly Father that You allowed Your only Son Jesus to come to earth to save us from certain death. Thank You that we choose 25th. December to celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord being born on this earth. Amen.
