Galatians: Chapter 1 verse 3
Grace and peace to you
from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is lovely today to know the grace and peace that can only come from God and Jesus. If you have a spare minute right now, sit and receive that wonderful peace, remember – ask and you shall receive.
Taken from book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
Have you ever just sat quietly on your own to try to receive that peace that comes from God our Heavely Father. It is worth a try – after all what can you loose when you find time to sit without the tele on or the radio on or any of the family around.
It can seem quite odd
if you have never sat quietly
on your own
but it is worth a try.
If you are indoors – sit in your favourite chair, if you are outside maybe in the garden find somewhere to sit on your own. Wherever you decide to be – look around where you are and begin to feel the peace in your heart even if it is only for a few minutes.
Try to sit a little longer, all the chores of the day will not run away, they will still be there for you to do. So treat yourself to a bit of quiet time to receive the Grace and Peace of The Lord.
Have a lovely Day.
(The Peace of The Lord is beyond our understanding)
Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 8
Listen, my son,
to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake
your mother’s teaching.
How much more do we need to listen to Our Father in Heaven, who teaches us through the Word. Are you going to read or have you already read any of God’s Word in your Bible today?
Taken from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by: J.M.R.Larman.
Let us just think for a moment – it is good to listen to our father even though we may not always agree with what he says. It is special for us if we do have an earthly father even though he may not be who would like him to be.
Some fathers in this world are just incredible and others may even need our help – however they are family – we belong to them and they belong to us. When in trouble most times we can go to our father for help or just to talk to him and sometime pour out our troubles to him.
But what joy it is when we can share our special joy’s and achievements with our earthly father.
Regarding the Scripture above – we can listen to our fathers instuctions or his help, as the case may be and also remember our mother is someone who can teach us many things.
Well what has this to do with Our Father in Heaven then?
Do you know that we can talk and come to God our Heavenly Father in much the same way as we can to our earthly father and mother. The difference is that God Loves us even more than we can comprehend – He loves our earthly fathers and mothers and wants us to honour them by sometimes just to listen to what they have to say – even though many times we may not agree with what they think or say.
To LISTEN is a special thing to do even with our family and friends. Also it is surprising what we can learn if only we will keep quiet for a while and just LISTEN to whoever wants to talk to us.

Psalm 12 verse 6
And the words of The Lord
refined in a furnace of clay,
purified seven times.
What about our words – could we say they are flawless, I think not, most of the time we are very careless with our words. Let us ask The Holy Spirit to speak through us and help us to curb our tongue, so that we may be more purified in our speaking.
Taken from book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
Well that is a bit of a big problem about our words being flawless.
Flawless means: a mark, blemish, or other imperfection.
So how does that relate to our speech – maybe because we are careless in speaking unholy words i.e. swear words, words that wound the other person in some way when we are cross with them. Words that hurt and not words that heal a situation.
We really nearly always speak out without thinking of what we are saying, or what we need to be saying. Maybe because we speak out quickly wanting to get our point across instead of listening properly of what the other person is trying to say.
Let us pray that God our Heavenly Father will purify our words even today, not only that but our thoughts need to be flawless as well.
(Best I think to pray about that) ?????
* Well I hope we have a lovely Day Today and consider and think about being refined by The Lord in all we do and say *
God Bless You, please pass on to your Christian friends if you would like them to read this today.
Maybe we can say a kind word to someone today. Amen.
Ephesians: Chapter 6 Verse 18
And pray in the Spirit
on all occasions
with all kinds of prayers and requests.
With this in mind,
be alert and always
keep on praying for all the saints.
Pray in the Spirit, The Holy Spirit of Jesus, ask Him to help you pray and He will. God loves us to pray, it is our way of talking to Him. We need to know Jesus in our hearts before our prayers can be accomplished by Our Heavenly Father through The Holy Spirit. Yes we do need to pray for each other, all of us need help, none of us are clever enough to go through life on this earth without the Love of God and the prayers of the saints.
Taken from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman
Well – it is good to know that God wants us to pray for each other.
When we pray it is best to ask that it is His will to be done in regard to the person or persons that we are praying for.
Just think of it – our soul prayers, things that we think would be best, are not always in accordance with God’s will and if we continue to pray against His will then that person does not receive the correct blessing that Our Father God in Heaven has for them.
So what should we do?
First of all I think it best not rush in (where Angels fear to tread) as the saying goes and wildly pray what we think is best for maybe our friend or loved one.
Wait and think about what Jesus would pray for in the circumstances in regard to the situation.
Remember our own mind can be fickle – thinking that we know best and not considering the outcome of what we are really praying for.
Also we need to pray for ourselves and thank God for all our Blessings day by day. Thank Him for our families, food and shelter, our health, our finance, our pets (if we have any). Also thank Him for Joy and Laughter.
Thank God our Father in Heaven for Jesus His Son and for The Holy Spirit who is with us always and will help us to pray (especially when we ask Him).
