Do our Ears Listen?

Proverbs:  Chapter 18 verse 15

The heart of the discerning

acquires knowledge;

the ears of the wise seek it out.

*

Dear God I pray today that we may have a more discerning heart,

a heart that yearns for knowledge of you God.

Let our ears listen to your voice

and may we be wiser today

than yesterday to seek your ways.  Amen.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

How about that then?  We all do have EARS but do we actually use them as they should be used?  I mean do we really listen when someone is talking to us or do their words go in one ear and straight out the other? 

Ears are meant for us to LISTEN – if we listen properly we may even learn something that we had not known before, that means that hopefully we may be a bit wiser than we were yesterday.

As Christians we are supposed to LISTEN to God our Heavenly Father but how many times do we take time to sit and pray?  Apart from talking to Him with all our wants and maybe complaints about the situation that we are in at the time do we then wait and hear what He would like to say to us?  Well no we don’t – mostly when we do pray we then get up and have a cuppa and start with what ever we want to do for the day.

This is where we need a discerning HEART to listen to God during our Prayer Time.  He is always there, He never sleeps and The Holy Spirit who is in us will help us with our Prayers.

Remember Jesus LOVES us and would like us to have more Knowledge, Wisdom and Discernment but the only way is to read the Holy Bible, even just a bit each day is sometimes enough to learn something else.  Then it is good to share with our Christian friends any new thing that we understand that we did not know before.

With the Knowledge and Wisdom that we have learnt

we can then share some of it with Children or young people.

*

Have a Lovely Day.

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us

today as we gain more

Wisdom and Knowledge in our daily lives.

Wonderful Things

Angel Drawing by J.M.R.Larman.

____________________

Exodus: Chapter 11 verse 9

The LORD had said to Moses,

“Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you  – 

so that my wonders may be multiplied in Egypt”

***

Do you realize that even today The LORD is still performing His wonders.

If you do not know what is going on in this day and age,

please find a spirit filled church and read some of the reports that are coming in from around the world.

It is incredible what The LORD is doing.

The same now as 2000 years ago, healing the sick,

giving sight to the blind,

bringing people out of darkness into His Kingdom of Light.

The list goes on.

Remember He needs us and wants us to participate with The Holy Spirit

to accomplish the same works that Jesus did on earth.

Drawing by J.M.R. Larman.
The above taken from the Book – ‘Drink from the Cup” by J.M.R.Larman.

We are very fortunate that The Lord Jesus uses Doctors, Nurses, Specialists and many other people to help with healing us for our bodies.

But remember that we need to submit ourselves to our Heavenly Father to receive the blessings that is in store for us and for Jesus to heal our Soul, our mind our thinking.

Let us try to listen to God our Heavenly Father for instructions each day to live a good life living in the Kingdom of God while we are on this earth.

Maybe we can Pray for God’s Wonders to be in our lives and the lives of our family and loved ones, let us not be like Pharaoh who refused to listen, remember what happened to him and to his Kingdom.  If you are not sure then you can find the reading of the Exodus in your Bible. 

* I Pray that The LORD’S Wonders may be evident in your life.

Have a Lovely day may God Bless You with Love, Peace and Joy.*

Jesus is Alive

Easter time is Special – it is good to remember that:- 

Jesus is Alive He has Risen from the dead and He is Alive!

Jesus is our Shepherd.

Jesus is Alive He has Risen from the dead and He is Alive!

The Oil Painting is by J.M.R. Larman and depicts Jesus as our Shepherd.

We are the Sheep of his pasture and He loves us and cares for us.

***

Psalm 26 verse 2

Test me, O Lord and try me, examine my heart and my mind;

***

Have you ever asked The Lord to examine your heart and mind?  It makes you wonder when He examines us what will He find?  I think it best to try to have a look into our own hearts before we ever ask The Lord to take a look.  Our minds are sometimes a minefield, full of things that they should not be full of.  We best get rid of some of the awful things that seem to come into our hearts and minds before we ask God to examine them.  Maybe best to start straight away!  Let me see have I let go of worry, anger?  Oh dear seems a lot of rubbish in there that should not be there, how about you?

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

We are all individuals,

all different as people,

just as snowflakes are different

but are still snowflakes.

 God made everyone according to a pattern.

  So we are made,

according to pattern.

We are made in the image of God.

Have a lovely day.

 

 

What about Moses?

2GlowBookGlasses2

Malachi: Chapter 4 verse 4.

Remember the law of my servant Moses,

the decrees and laws

I gave Him at Horeb for all Israel.

***

Do you remember the law that was given to Moses, we know that as Christians we live by grace now and not by law.  However we do need to live according to the Commandments that were given to Moses.

If we break one we may as well have broken the lot because in the eyes of God – sin is sin however large or small.

 I am thankful that we can ask Jesus to forgive us and that He does, especially as we go before God asking for all that we seem to ask Him for!

Yellow Scroll

I have put a picture of a Scroll on here today to remind us that the Ten Commandments  may have been put on a Scroll to be read out to people.

Moses of course brought them down from the mountain on the tablets that had been written “with the finger of God” 

We are very fortunate that we can read them in our Holy Bible (Exodus 31:18) it is good to check them out once in a while to see what we should be doing and possibly not what we are doing.

One of them says ‘that you should have no other Gods”

So what other Gods do we have in our lives…. maybe some sort of Idols, or maybe the love of money, food, gossip, television, there are lots of things that take priority in our lives instead of living a godly life with the love of Jesus and walking with the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.  One thing is to love our neighbour as ourselves (difficult that one – if we are not keen about talking to some people) even family members.

It really is a Christian challenge to try to keep the Ten Commandments isn’t it? 

Hands Colour

Let us Pray that we can become more Godly day by Day walking in the Love of The Lord.

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us Today

God Hates Evil

Psalm: 97 verse 10

Let those who love The LORD hate evil,

for He guards the lives of His faithful ones

and delivers them from

the hand of the wicked.

***

Thank you LORD for your protection toward me and my family

including all those I love and pray for.  Amen.

*

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

***

Today is a good day to not do anything that is evil, that is let us try not to do any bad thing today.  I know that it is very difficult sometimes not to use swear words, or to shout at our loved ones or to make someone cry!  Let us try to be kind today.  Let us be kind to those that The Lord brings before us.  It may be a stranger that we meet while shopping or travelling on our holiday.

If we can help someone without expecting anything in return that is good.

Anything that is good is not evil in the sight of God our Heavenly Father.

God our Heavenly Father protects us wherever we go i.e. down the street, or next door to neighbours, on holiday, or in the workplace just about anywhere.  But we loose that protection if we go and join in where evil lurks.  God will chastise us, remember He is our Heavenly Father – we are His children, so like our earthly Father would choose to  chastise us so will He.  (Not a good feeling if we have done wrong when we belong to the Kingdom of God).

There we are then – just a thought that we may like to consider, so that we can continue to have the protection for ourselves and our families.  Today and always.

* God Bless You Today – Have a lovely Joyful day *

We are not alone.

Sunset Boat Harbour 3

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!

From ‘Drink from the Cup’ book., by J.M.R.Larman.

…..

So if you are feeling lonely today, stop and think for a while, make a cup of coffee, tea or a favourite drink.  Then sit quietly and thank The Lord for all the Blessings that He has allowed and is giving us each day.

Let us think do we have food and shelter, are we blessed with a Husband, Wife and children or good friends or even a special Pet that we can rely on and talk to when we need help or a shoulder to cry on.

Well we may have so many Blessings that is is difficult to count them all and yet………we still feel lonely.

Why oh! why do we feel like that ?……

While we sit quietly let us remember that Jesus must have felt very lonely at times when people did not understand Him.  Sometimes He went off to a special place to pray on His own to His Father in Heaven until He felt better about things…….Jesus who’s Father is in Heaven is also our Father who we can go to at any time of the day or night if we are a Christian.

So let us try not to be lonely today, talk to The Holy Spirit and ask Him to comfort you and guide you out of that feeling of loneliness  into the Joy of The Lord.  Maybe put on some cheerful music – remember we need the Spirit of Praise for the Spirit of Heaviness.  Then the spirit of loneliness will begin to go away and we can get on with our day in a cheerful way.

Maybe have another Cuppa!!!!!!!!!!!!

Proverbs:  12 verse 28

In the way of righteousness there is life;

along that path is immortality.

*

Today is another day for us to walk in righteousness,

to walk in true life on our way to immortality,

to eternity.

 Walk in righteousness with Jesus today,

tell Him you love Him and look forward

to the day when we walk in Heaven with Him.

*

Taken from Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

Well what does it mean then to walk in righteousness?

I think it means that we should be careful what we say and do, especially in front of our little children and also in the presence of our grown up family and friends.  Children mainly only know what they are taught, so we do need to try to teach them the right way to live.  That surely would be walking in righteousness for us to show them how.

We all make mistakes and cannot be perfect all the time, however we can say sorry if we have said or done the wrong thing.  Jesus forgives us when we repent and say with are sorry, then of course we can feel free of any guilt that we have said or done the wrong thing and hopefully remember not to do it again.

Yes Children need to be taught to do the right thing – also they need to be taught to say the word sorry to their friends and family, even as we need to do so.

I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Righteousness with The Lord, remember The Holy Spirit will help you if you ask Him – especially if you are struggling with any problems regarding your walk with Jesus.

What are Scoffers ?

Jude:  verse 18

They said to you,

“In the last times

there will be scoffers

who will follow

their own ungodly desires”

not to follow my own ungodly desires.

guide me into all righteousness and truth. Amen.

Do we know what a Scoffer is?  That is the question????????

The Dictionary says:  to Scoff is to speak about something in a scornfully derisive way.  It does mean also to ridicule someone or something.  Which really is not a good idea as the Bible says we are not to judge.  It is up to The Lord to judge people not us and He says also that as we judge others so we shall be judged.

Makes you think doesn’t it?

Be Holy

The above is an ‘Oil Painting” of a Vision that someone had.

*

Leviticus:  Chapter 19 verses 1-2

The LORD said to Moses,

Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them:

  ‘Be holy because –

I, The LORD your God, am Holy.’

*

Today we need to be reminded of this – we need to be holy because the LORD our God is Holy.  How can we do this you may well ask?  Possibly in lots of ways but one thing we can do, is to try to keep ourselves from the evils of this world.

God has called us to be Holy.

That means we are set aside for Him.  Let us try to stay that way for The LORD our God each day.

*

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

We can only take one day at a time while we live on this earth to try to be Holy.

We are not that clever to be able to do this by ourselves. 

We need the help of The Holy Spirit to help guide us each day.

Really when you think about it this can only happen if we are a Christian, so we best become one and get on with it.

So, you may say that is not very holy to talk like that but it is the truth and in the Bible it says ‘the truth will set you free’  Therefore for us to be holy it is an on going thing.   We don’t like to not be able to do some of the worldly things.  However, we should really try to obey the Ten Commandments that were give to Moses.  If you are not sure what they are they can be found in your Holy Bible……if you do not happen to have one…….then maybe look on Google because there you can find most things.

Today let us hopefully not get really cross with anyone and upset them, let us not swear or steal or commit different kinds of crime.  Let us try to love our neighbour as ourselves (that is one of the Commandments) I am not going to list them here because if you want to be Holy then it is up to you to try, no-one else can do that for you.

Please let us remember to Pray and ask God our Heavenly Father to allow The Holy Spirit to help us as we walk in truth and love with Jesus our Lord.

* I pray that you have a lovely Holy Day today *
