Jude: Verse 18
They said to you,
“In the last times there will be scoffers
who will follow their own ungodly desires”
Please help me today God not to follow my own ungodly desires. May your Holy Spirit guide me into all righteousness and truth. Amen.
‘Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’
Well what does it mean to be a Scoffer, what does it really mean in our lives today. In the Dictionary it says “to speak about something in a scornfully derisive way”
So that means if we ridicule a person or a thing we are being a Scoffer, that does not sound like a very nice thing to do, especially about our family members. Or if we ridicule our children or old people, people with disabilities i.e. deformities, deafness, failing eye sight, poor academic schooling.
As a Christian we can be free from being a Scoffer if we choose to not be one, therefore we need not follow our ungodly desires. It is difficult I know not to follow an unholy desire but we do need to think about these things. We need to realize that in Christ Jesus we have been set free if we choose to be.
So here is a Poem that I wrote because it is lovely to feel set free from awful worldly desires – even if it is only now and then that we can Pray this Poem as a Prayer to thank The Lord Jesus that He did come to set us FREE. !!!
I am Free
I am free, Praise The Lord I am Free.
How am I free, free to Laugh.
Free to Sing, free to Walk
Free to run, free to Pray,
Free to talk, free to eat
Free to drink, free to play
I am free, free – Free.
Yes Free to feel the Breeze on my face.
Free to feel the Sand on the Beach,
Free to Swim in the Ocean,
Free to appreciate the Sky
The Beautiful Sunsets.
Free to watch the Lightening in the Thunderstorms,
Free to hear the Thunder.
Yes I am Free to walk with Jesus – with God my Father in Heaven
Free to appreciate the Holy Spirit in my life
Free to receive all my Blessings
From our Heavenly Father.
Yes I am Free because
Jesus is my Lord and Saviour. Amen.
* I am Free to Praise The Lord *

May God Bless you Today and Always.
Galatians: Chapter 5 v 16.
So I say, live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
Dear God help us today not to gratify those desires of the flesh that are not right by you. We do need your help God, we cannot do any thing good by ourselves without You and Jesus, by the help of your Holy Spirit. Amen.

So where are we at today then? What desire of the flesh are we thinking of today to do that we should not do? Are we going to argue with our friends and neighbours, gorge ourselves with unhealthy food, try to steal from the Supermarkets, or take money that we are not entitled to. There seems to be a lot of unholy desires of the flesh including coveting our friends husband or wives, getting drunk and disorderly, taking people to court for no good reason to do so except to satisfy our own thinking that we are right and they are wrong.
Today let our desire be to please God our Heavenly Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.
Maybe we can do something nice for someone (God would be pleased about that) what can we do then for them? One good thing do do is to pray for whoever comes to mind or whoever we meet during the daytime. No need to stand and pray so that they can see, it is best to pray privately in our own Prayer time with The Holy Spirit.
I Pray you have a lovely day * today *
May God our Father in Heaven Bless you and your family wherever you are

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.

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 *
