Matthew: Chapter 1 verse 18.
This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph but before they came together, she was found to be with child through The Holy spirit.
Mary must have been a beautiful young woman spiritually to be so obedient to God saying yes to what He asked of her. How many of us can truly say that we are obedient to submit ourselves to the ways of The LORD? Dear LORD God I pray today that I may be more obedient to your voice and not to my own wants. In being obedient to you I know that you will be blessing me even more than I can ever imagine. Thank you for Mary the Mother of my Saviour – Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
I Pray that God will Bless us Today as we try to be more Obedient to Him – Our Father in Heaven, Jesus Christ His Son and to the Holy Spirit.
I hope you have a lovely Day today.
Christmas is a Special Time of the Year so we can Celebrate the Birth of Jesus.
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.

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.

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’*

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.
* May God Bless us today as we Pray
for the place we are living in *

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
in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit.
May God Bless us today.
Have a Lovely Day walking in the Love of The Lord.
