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.
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.
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 *

Romans: Chapter 14 verse 17
For the Kingdom of God
is not a matter of eating and drinking
but of Righteousness,
Peace and Joy in
The Holy Spirit.
Today let us walk with The Holy Spirit of Jesus in that lovely Peace and Joy that only comes from
The Kingdom of God.
The above is taken from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
As this is a new day today, let us choose to walk in Peace and Joy if we can with our families and friends. When we get a New Day it is good to think what are we going to do with it?????????
We do really have a choice – sometimes we think we don’t have, if we are feeling ill or lonely or neglected – but we still can make a choice not to be a victim even in those circumstances. We can try to find JOY in something during the day. Even to cuddle the cat, pat the dog, read a book, sit in the sun or eat something nice.
Today is to be lived,
tomorrow – today, will be gone.
Well what are you going to do today? It says in the Bible it is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness, peace and joy in The Holy Spirit.
If you are a Christian The Holy Spirit is with you and can help you to walk in JOY today – he does like you to ask Him though.
I pray you have a lovely day walking in the Love of Jesus.
Soar in the Heavenlies with Joy in your heart.
James: Chapter 1 verse 5
If any of you lacks wisdom,
he should ask God,
who gives generously to all
without finding fault
and it will be given to him.
I love wisdom, how about you? How ever naive or unskilled we are, if we ask God for wisdom He gives it to us – the above verse says – generously. We can all be wise but we must remember to ask for wisdom, what a privilege to be able to ask and receive!
The above is taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
Here us a nice clean Scroll……. we do need Wisdom to be able to write something sensible on it. Just a small amount of Wisdom is all we need to write something. But to write something really important or to try to judge what is right or wrong we need maybe a bit more Wisdom.
Remember – Solomon aked God for Wisdom – you can read about Solomon in – (1Kings: Chapter 3) in your Holy Bible.
Wisdom helps us to make wise decisions which was something that Solomon was able to do when he had to intervene in a dispute by the two women.
Let us try to be wise today and each day as we continue to walk in peace and love with each other while we live on this earth.
I Pray that God will bless you with extra Wisdom when you need it – but – yes there is a but – and that but is that you need to Ask before you can receive.
* Have a lovely Day *
* God Bless you *

Psalm: 119 verse 32
I run the path of your commands,
have set my heart free.
LORD you have set my heart free, free to love The Lord Jesus and to serve Him. I love your commands, one which asks me to walk a blameless life. Please God our Heavenly Father help me to do this today with the guidance of your Holy spirit. Amen.
So is our heart free – free from anger, sadness, grief, sorrow. If not then I pray that we can give those things and wrong thoughts to The Lord then try to walk in His ways.
His ways are His Commands and the most precious one is that we should Walk in Love.
When we walk in the Love of The Lord Jesus we can try to put anger, sadness, grief sorrow behind us. There are times when we will be angry, sometimes sad, also grief stricken but if we sit with The Lord Jesus in our Prayer time these will gradually diminish. Then our Heart will gradually be set Free.
We can then walk more in contentment with our Heart Free of some of the things that come against us in our everyday lives.
We can be Free as the Eagle that soars above, free in the Spirit to soar into the Heavenly Realms as we sit at the feet of Jesus in our own personal Prayer time.
God Bless You.
