Blessings !

Farm Painting for Taylor

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Grow in Grace

Snowflake.colouranimation

2 Peter Chapter 3  verse 18

“Grow in grace

and in the knowledge

of our LORD

and Saviour Jesus Christ”.

*****

One of the best ways to grow in grace and knowledge of God is to read The Bible>  Getting things second hand is not a good idea and really dosn’t get us very far.  So…..if you are not reading your Bible, Today is a very good time to start.

However if you are reading your Bible daily, then I pray that you will continue to grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

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

*****

The rest of verse eightteen says  …  To Him be Glory both now and forever! Amen.

So that should make us think  –  what are we doing even today to give God our Father in Heaven any Glory.

Well what can I do?  Not too sure about that  – I could try to be good!  (Well there is always hope!)   I could be nice to some one.  I could tell someone about the Gospel of Jesus.  I could phone or write to someone to bless them if they have been waiting a long time for me to keep in touch.  I could cook someone a nice meal…..we are supposed to show hospitality to people especially if we do happen to be a Christian.

All the above would give Glory to God if we actually manage to do any of them.

One of the best things I suppose is to make sure that we read something in the Holy Bible each day.  It does not have to take long even a few minutes would be better than none at all.

Best of all is to have a special time to sit with God each day – to read His word and thank Him for the Salvation that Jesus has allowed us to have.

EagleFlying

Let us soar on Eagles Wings to Heavenly places while we sit and pray – especially The Lords Prayer – I am sure that would be acceptable to God if you are not sure how else to pray.

* May you Grow in Grace each day as you sit with our God *

Amen.
