2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands.
As you have heard from the beginning
His command is
that you walk in love.
Please would you help me to walk in love today Lord! Amen.
So today let us try to walk in the Love of The Lord Jesus. I know that it can be very difficult to walk in obedience to the Commandments that God gave to Moses.
But we need to give it a go.
So what can we do then to walk in Love…..well, we can show consideration to those family and friends that we meet up with today and in the coming week. Some I know we find difficult to show love to – we don’t have to gush over them, just listen to what they have to say, not tell them what to do.
To walk in the Love of The Lord Jesus is not for us to give things to show love, it is us being willing to share our time with those who come before us each day.
So I can say to you: that I love you with the love of The Lord who ever and wherever you are reading this today.
I pray that God will Bless you and keep you safe as you try to be obedient to Him and that means that you are walking in The Love of The Lord Jesus Christ my Saviour and hopefully is or will be yours.
God Bless you with His Love
Psalm 26 verse 2
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.
May be 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?
Well – there doesn’t seem much to say about the above except that sometimes we are fearful to even think about looking into our own heart to see if there is any wrong thoughts or things in there that we are holding on to. Mainly things that we really don’t want God to see or even for us to deal with.
So what can we do?
The best thing I suppose is to pray and ask Jesus to show us what we need to do – I am sure He will highlight anything that is hidden, things that have been too hard for us to deal with.
Remember when we bring them into the light – that is to repent and ask Jesus to take them away – then Hope begins to dawn in our hearts to refresh and renew us by The Holy Spirit.
When that happens it is as if a load has been taken off of us – if it was a sin lurking in the heart then it would be good to let it go and Praise the Lord for His unfailing Love to us.
There is a Secret Door to the Heart that no one but God and ourselves can see.
God Bless you today as you may begin to think of these things.

1 Timothy: Chapter 6 verse 6
is great gain.
To be content is something wonderful, we are to be content in all circumstances but most times we are definitely not!
What do you think is the reason why we are not content?
Could it be that we are not walking in godliness?
I think that may be a lot to do with it. Whatever is going on in your life today try to be content with what you have, try not to yearn for things that cannot be.
Let us praise The Lord for what we already have.
So today let us think what we have that we can be content about…..most of us have shelter, food, family and finance. We have lovely flowers and animals, we have produce in abundance here in Australia.
We can be proud of our Country – being content that we have freedom of speech – so we can say Jesus is Lord of all the Earth and of all that is in it.
Regarding Creation – we can be content about that because Jesus organized it, no it did not evolve. So we can be content in the knowledge that He made for instance an Oak Tree and that throughout time it has not evolved into something else: i.e. each reproduces its own kind from the seed that was put into it, even animals and human beings. Just as simple as that!!!!!!
Let us believe and be content to read about these things in our Bible and not doubt.
Let us be or try to be more Godly and walk in godliness with the contentment that we can only know by walking with Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.
God Bless you with Love and Contentment today.
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 a pattern.
We are made in the image of God.

1 Timothy: Chapter 6 verse 5
…., who have been robbed of the truth
and who think that godliness
is a means to financial gain.
This Scripture applies to those who love money, yes, we do need money and we have to work to earn it but we must not make it a god in our lives. Because God supplies all our needs, we cannot think that we can pray – please God send me a fortune in money. Best to read the above Scripture to get a really good meaning of this for our lives today, then get on with our Godly living in the knowledge that God supplies all our needs, financial or otherwise.
Let us Pray for God to bless us with finance – that is not problem – the problem arises when we ask for ungodly gains that we really do not need i.e. I believe that the Prosperity Gospel is not the true Gospel of Jesus.
The bible does say: ‘ask and you shall receive’ – yes we are to ask – but God does know our needs and he will supply our daily needs, not unlimited funds and more and more unholy wants.
He does supply us with our families, food, clothes and shelter. We can ask and receive Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, Discernment and everyday Commonsense. I believe these are things that God likes us to ask for and receive. We can ask for healing or good health for our bodies and loved ones. We can ask that we can share The Love of The Lord Jesus with those that God allows us to see and care for each day.
Do you know that it is a privilege to be able to Pray – Jesus prayed and gave us “The Lord’s Prayer” – which really covers everything that we need to ask God for.
