The Secret Place

Psalm 139 verse 15

My frame was not hidden from you

when I was made in the secret place.

*

God made us specially in that secret place,

we must be very precious to Him.

Today let us ask if there is anything special

that He would like us to do for Him

instead of asking for something for ourselves.

He must be so pleased when the creatures that He has made

show respect  and love for Him and His Kingdom.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the cup’

Remember that Jesus was made in that Secret Place in His Mother Mary’s womb, when the Holy Spirit came upon her.

We also were made in our Mothers womb by our earthly Fathers.  However God our Heavenly Father could see us and has been with us from the beginning of our conception, it is He that has made us, hoping I am sure that He would like us to accept Him to be our own Heavenly Father.

When we do that then we become a Christian and are very precious to Him.

So what can we do to show Him that we are really pleased to  belong to The Kingdom of God.

Let us try to walk in Righteous and Love towards each other, to be more like Jesus who had compassion on all who came to Him.

We can walk in the Secret Place each day with the Love of God and Fellowship with The Holy Spirit who is our Comforter and Guide.  He lives in us and walks with us each day of our lives in that Secret Place in our Hearts.

So what can we do for Jesus today?

We could ask God to Bless all who come before us today – that would be one nice thing that we could do. 

* May God Bless You Today as you Walk and Talk with Him

through the Holy Spirit of Jesus *  Amen.

Jerusalem is Special

This is a photo of Morning Glory in my Garden.

I reminds me of Trumpets.

Psalm 122 verse 6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May those who love You be secure”

***

Let us not forget to pray for Jerusalem.

The Holy City, where Jesus will be coming back to Zion His Holy Hill.

As we pray, we can feel secure in the love of God our Father and Jesus His Son.

So pray today for the peace of Jerusalem, be glad that God is in control of everything.

From Book. “Drink from the Cup”

I think the above Psalm is a reminder for us to pray for Jerusalem – God’s Special City.  Let us pray for His Peace to be there day after day for those that live and work there.  We can pray that any hostility begins to cease and everyone can begin to live peaceably in Israel and Palestine.  So that the everyday people can be at peace in their hearts.

We can also Pray for the place that we are living in at the moment be it a Town, a City, a Village or a Provence somewhere. 

It is good to remember what the Bible say’s ‘The Prayers of a righteous man availeth much’ really that means that the prayers we utter should come from our heart, not just idle words, not prayers that we speak out to impress anyone but prayers that we really mean if we want God to answer them.

* I Pray that you have a lovely day today,

with the Peace of The Lord in your heart

whatever the circumstances you find yourself in *

Doing Good !

Hands holding Bible

3 John: verse 11

Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good.

Anyone who does what is good is from God.

Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.

Today let us not grow weary of doing good!  That is a word The Lord gave me when I got a bit fed up one day and thought – what is the good of trying to help whoever it was.  Then the quiet voice of The Holy Spirit said “Jessie never weary of doing good”  so I pass that on to you today, please don’t grow tired of doing good.  God is Good, He is Love, He is all goodness. He is the LORD!

Well the thing is – what can we do today that will be good?  One of the best things of course is to Pray.  But that is not what I mean, what I mean is what can we do to help someone, there are so many people that need help in the world.  However our family should come first in all things.

Sometimes they make us cross by doing things that we would prefer they don’t do, especially any children that we are looking after.  They can be a real trial at times.  We do have to look after them though and not get fed up seeing to them.  One other thing is to be good to our Parents and Grandparents, all older people should be able to find that we have time to talk to them.  Some are very lonely and we can do some good today even just to say ‘Hello’ to them.

Remember you may be the only person that speaks to them today, so why not smile and say ‘Hello’ – no need to stand and talk if you are not sure what to say but just a greeting for them to hear will be a blessing that you can give.

A good thing to do is to say ‘God Bless you, have a good day’ to someone while out shopping or travelling.

So today I would like to say to you –

*’God Bless You, have a really lovely Day Today’*

Contentment

ShepherdSheep2

This is an Oil Painting that I did of The Good Shepherd

Circle Blue Animation1

Philippians: Chapter 4 verse 11 

I am not saying this because I am in need,

for I have learned to be content

whatever the circumstances.

*

Today is the start of a new month, let us endeavor to be content if we can this month in what ever circumstances we find ourselves.  Let us rest in the knowledge and love of Jesus that He is with us everyday, comforting and guiding us by His Holy Spirit.

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

Circle Blue Animation1

The above Bible quote was spoken by St.Paul, so it would be good if we can follow his example and be content just where we are.  I know that we all have problems and hope for better things to come sometimes.  However that may take a while for our circumstances to change.  But while we are waiting for things to change in our lives it is a good idea to appreciate the things we have.

We can appreciate having a roof over our heads, food, shelter, water, especially if we are  blessed with a family, let us be content with having them in our lives.

Another thing that helps us to be content is if we have a Pet animal, we can be content that we are giving our Pet a good home, that can be a real blessing to our-self and of course to our beloved Pet.

When we can be content it is surprising what The Lord Jesus can do to encourage us with even more blessings that we ask for.

What about any talents that we have been given, are we using them to please God Our Father in Heaven?  Even in our everyday work we can be content in doing it to the best of our ability – then we will be content at the end of the day that we have done our best in what ever circumstance we have found our-self.

This is one of my better photo’s – hope you like it.

May God – Jesus – and The Holy Spirit help you to be Content today.

Children are Beautiful

The Little Children and Jesus

Jesus with Children

Oil Painting by Artist:  J.M.R. Larman

*

Mark Chapter 10 verses 13-16

People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them but the Disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, he was indignant.  He said to them, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”.  And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

Taken from the TNIV Study Bible.

How do you feel about little children?

  Do you love them or think they are just a nuisance.  You may not have any yourself – but – just think they are all around us in this world.

How dare people abuse them.

Everyone who hurts a little child (apart from chastising them) will have to give account one day to God – Our Father in Heaven, who will judge them according to what they have done.

Oil Painting by J.M.R. Larman

Jesus may weep oceans of tears for all the little children that are not blessed with loving people to look after them. 

Babies when born are helpless and unable to look after themselves if left they will just die, they are not like some of the creatures that are born ready to feed and fend for themselves.

So we do need to realize that Children are precious, they can bring us much pleasure when we find time to care for them.  That also includes Teenagers – they are still our children and need our care and support.

Have a lovely Day and maybe share the Love of The Lord with a Little One today.

May God Bless You with His Peace and Love.

Proverbs: Chapter 11 verse 11 

Through the blessing of the upright

a city is exalted

but by the mouth of the wicked

it is destroyed.

*

Just think right where you are, you can  be a  blessing to the city or town that you live in.  In your own community you can be a blessing, by praying and being in the love of Jesus day by day.  We are not all called to go out to be a prominent person in our community but by prayer and supplication we as Christians can make a great difference in the  city around us.  Today let us pray for the place that we live in for peace to prevail and for the mouth of the wicked to be cleansed.

From the  Book: Drink from the Cup by J.M.R. Larman.

Key Blue

So in a special way we can have the Keys of the City in our hearts to pray for the place that we are living in.  It may not matter if it is a Great City or a Small Country Town.  Jesus will hear our prayers when we really pray for our place where with live to be Blessed.

No Prayer is wasted if it is prayed truly from our heart not just to pray idle words but words that we really mean what we are praying for.

Can we say Bless The Lord oh my Soul and enter into that place of Prayer for our City or Town.  Let us Pray that Peace will Prevail, Justice be done, Joy & Love to be Blessings for the people who live in and around us.  Let us ask our Father in Heaven to Bless the Children, the young ones, the teenagers, the adults, even our Pets, the animals in our City or Town.

Remember that the mouth of the wicked will want to destroy all the above, so we need to pray.   Also remember James 5 in verse 16…….. that the Fervent Prayer of a Righteous Man accomplishes much.

Thank God for His Grace

St.George's Anglican Church

John: Chapter 4 verse 22

Samaritans worship what you do not know;

we worship what we do know,

for salvation is from the Jews.

*

Jesus said the above and it is true, so we do need to pray for the Jew’s and thank God for His Grace that He receives us Gentiles into Salvation.  Let us be thankful today for the incredible love of Our Father in Heaven.

Snowflake blk

So the above gives us food for thought – as most people think it not necessary to pray for the Jews.  We must remember that a lot of them are not Christians, they do need our Prayers.  Yes the Jew’s are God’s chosen people but many have rejected Jesus and that is very sad as they do not recognize Him as their Saviour and Lord of Lords.

We are very fortunate that God our Heavenly Father accepts us Gentiles into Salvation when we acknowledge Jesus Christ His Son to be Lord of our lives and invite Him into our Hearts.  And what a Blessing that He allows His Holy Spirit to be with us – Praise The Lord.

So:  Let us submit ourselves afresh today to Our Father in Heaven.

Let us walk in the Love of Jesus

and

in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit. 

*

May God Bless us today.

Have a Lovely Day walking in the Love of The Lord.

Yes we are Worthy

Hands Colour

2 Thessalonians:  Chapter 1 verse 11

With this in mind,

we constantly pray for you,

that our God may count you worthy of His calling

and that by His power He may fulfill every good purpose

of yours and every act prompted by your faith.

***

I pray today that you will feel worthy to be called by God and will know what He wants you to do for Him today.  As you walk in your faith you will see things being fulfilled that you have  been asking and seeking God for.  Know that God sees you as worthy, because He has called you and you will know this if you have truly accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.

Taken from: ‘Drink from the Cup’  Book.

Snowflake.colouranimation

Well what can we say about being Worthy?  In the Dictionary it says – to be good enough, suitable, deserving.  So how do we feel about ourselves – often we feel we are not good enough and therefore do not deserve all the things that we have or even the things that we do are not good enough.

But the thing is that when we have accepted Jesus into our lives we have a helper – who is The Holy Spirit.  If we ask Him He will help us to be more Worthy, more deserving etc., as we walk with The Lord we will be able to show more care and love towards those in our family also our pets and people who we meet while shopping or travelling each day.  Also with the faith that we have – however large or small – remember we can Pray.  Jesus taught His Disciples to pray especially the one that we do know as The Lords Prayer.  If you are not sure how or what to Pray for this Prayer covers everything that we need as individuals.

God Our Heavenly Father loves us to Pray, so give it a go.  If you are not used to doing so, remember you are Worthy to Pray for your family and friends also do not forget to Pray for yourself.  God supplies all our needs but He does like us to ask and also the thank Him for all our  Blessings.

Jesus has made us Worthy to Receive and Worthy to Pray.

May God Our Heavenly Father Bless us today as we try to be more deserving of His Love.

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.

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.*
