Matthew: Chapter 24 verse 42
Therefore keep watch,
because you do not know
on what day your Lord will come.
How do we keep watch?
Well – I believe that to keep watch is to try to be ready,
to have our house in order.
That is to say – have our hearts prepared,
ready and waiting just incase it is today
– that Jesus comes.
The above us taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’
You can use this book year after year. It has recently been republished to go on the internet – I have been using this little book daily for at least 20years and each day there is something special for us to read and to know. Praise The Lord!
Let us continue to prepare out hearts while we wait for Jesus to come back to this Earth, that means me as well. Let us get rid of all unholy things that are in there. Like jealousy, hate, gossip, bitterness, strife, lies, covetousness, the list goes on and on, lets get rid of them and Praise The Lord ! We should then be more ready if today is the day that The Lord Jesus comes for us.
None of us can live forever on this Planet Earth, let us enjoy our life while we are here – remember we have The Holy Spirit to help us to overcome whatever it is we need to overcome. We have the love of Jesus with us and we have our Heavenly Father who hears all our prayers.
So let us Rejoice for – This is the day that The Lord has made –
let us Rejoice and be glad in it.
*May God Bless you today….. Have a Lovely Day.*
Psalm 55 verse 22
Cast your cares on The LORD
He will sustain you;
He will never let the righteous fall.
Isn’t that marvellous, that our God will sustain us!
Whatever our circumstance,
being righteous in Jesus Christ –
when we call on God He does hear us.
From the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
Do you know that God does hear our Prayers. To be sure that He hears them we do need to have Jesus in our heart as our Lord and Saviour. So we then can Pray straight to God our Heavenly Father. When we are learning to pray – a good Prayer is The Lord’s Prayer. If we are a new Christian and not sure what to pray this is a good one to learn.
This is the Prayer that Jesus taught His Disciples to pray and it really covers every thing that we need.
Of course we can pray for anything at anytime and as long as it is within God’s Will He will allow it for us to come into being. Maybe not straight away and that is when we start to doubt whether He has heard our prayer. You see sometimes it is not good for us to have everything we want just when we want it.
When we were a child we had to wait until we were old enough to have certain things or to go to certain places maybe on our own and our Parent would say ( ‘no’ you have to wait) Well God is our Heavenly Father and He knows what is best for us and He cares for us. In whatever circumstance’s we find ourselves it is good to know that He cares about us and loves us and will provide for us at the right time.
It is good to know that we have a God of Love who cares for us and our families.
We do need to Pray for our loved ones so they can also be blessed.
* God Bless you – have a Lovely Day today *

As Christians we are Children in Gods Kingdom.
Ephesians: Chapter 1 verse 5
Having predestined us to be adopted
as His children through Jesus Christ,
according to the good pleasure of His will.
Imagine God loving us so much that He wants us to be part of His own family! When we accept Jesus as our Saviour, Jesus then becomes our Brother and God becomes our Spiritual Father.
We belong to the King of Kings, the God of God’s.
We are very precious to our Heavenly Father.
Taken from Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
It is good to be a Child of God, who is our Heavenly Father. Yes we are God’s Adopted Children when we accept Jesus God’s Son as our Saviour. With Jesus in our lives it makes a lot of difference to many of us just to know that we do have a Father in Heaven who cares for us even more than our earthly father does.
Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever, His love does not change towards us.
He does not make us love Him.
He has given us a choice, we are not puppets, we have free will to choose His Son Jesus or not to,
it is up to us to decide.
All I can say is: that a friend and I agreed – once you have lived with the Holy Spirit (who is the Spirit of Jesus) you would not want to live without Him in your life. Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to be with us after He went back to Heaven after dying on the Cross for us, so that we would not be left as orphan’s but could be part of the family of God.
It is good to have a Father, if we are not fortunate enough to have an earthly one – as Christians we can be sure of a Heavenly one.
* May God Bless you today and always *
Matthew: Chapter 1 verse 21.
She will give birth to a Son
and you are to give him the name
because he will save his people
from their sins.
I am so glad that Mary was obedient, because if she had not given birth to Jesus where would you and I be today? It does not bear to think about it! Praise God today for the birth of Jesus who also was obedient to Our Heavenly Father to the extent of dying on The Cross for yours and my sins. I Praise you Heavenly Father that you allowed Your only Son Jesus to come to earth to save us from certain death. Thank You that we choose the 25th. December to celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord being born on this earth. Amen.
Taken from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
All of us as Christians know this story above. How would you feel if you had to give up your Son to save someone. We really could not do that could we? Or maybe it would be a Daughter that you could be asked to give up to save someone. Both Sons and Daughters are very precious to us. Just think how much we love them and then concider just how much God loves us that He gave His only Son to come to Earth for our sakes. That is incredible and our human brains cannot fathom out the great love that God has for us his people.
Jesus was obedient to His Father in Heaven and all Power on earth is given to Him.
So He can confidently say in the Bible John: Chapter 14 verse 6.
(No one comes to the Father except by me)
Now is the time if you have not done so already to ask Jesus to come into your heart – your life, if you would like to go to Heaven when your body dies.
All you have to do (if you do not know already) is to repent of your sins (that is to tell God you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done) and ask Jesus to forgive you. Then you can invite Him in – and yes He will be with you.
Unless you ask Him He will not be part of your life – He does not go where He is not wanted.
So think of all the blessings you will miss out on if you do not invite Him to be with you.
God Bless You
Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 7
The fear of The LORD
is the beginning of knowledge
fools despise wisdom
I think I shall ask The LORD for more knowledge and wisdom today, I do not want to be a fool, I pray that I do have the fear of The LORD and I certainly do not despise wisdom and knowledge.
For my part I know that I do love wisdom and knowledge, also I do know that I definitely need more! Thank you LORD God that you continue to fill me afresh each day, also with the knowledge and love of Jesus.
So let us just think where are we really going to get this knowledge and wisdom from……well I think it does help to read our Bible because it has been written for our learning. Therefore if we decide not to read, then we are limiting our brains to absorb knowledge and wisdom from the Apostles and followers of Jesus that are written about in the most Holy Book.
Lots of them were not clever people but with the account of their lives we can learn from their mistakes. (Hopefully we can!)
So where does the FEAR come from then?
You see we are not to be afraid of our God because He is the God of Love. Our only fear is to be that we really don’t acknowledge Him as we should and that we don’t always walk in the knowledge that He is our Heavenly Father and He Loves us even more than our earthly fathers love us.
We do fear being chastised by our earthly fathers and need to realize that our Heavenly Father does chastise us too.
So that FEAR OF THE LORD
is that we DO NOT need to be
FRIGHTENED OF THE LORD OUR GOD.
I hope you have a lovely day walking in the Love and Knowledge, Wisdom and Joy of our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Heavenly Father.
John: Chapter 1 verse 12
But as many as received Him,
to them gave He power
to become the sons of God,
even to them
that believe on His Name:
We must believe on and in the name of Jesus.
Then we can become Sons of God,
filled with all power and authority
of Jesus Christ our Lord.
With the knowledge that God is truly
Our Father in Heaven.
Isn’t it lovely to think that we have a Father in Heaven. Also to think that He is the one and only True Living God. Do you realize that Jesus is alive – He is not dead –
God has a Son – His name is Jesus –
So – God is a Father and He wants us to become His Sons (that means Daughters as well). Therefore when we receive Jesus we too become one of God’s Sons. He made us to be a family for Him but we have a choice – we are not puppets – He lets us choose to be part of His family – He does not automatically include us. If we want to live in the world without Jesus then we are free to do so. But how terrible – then we would not be going to Eternity when we leave this earth.
How wonderful Eternity must be filled with the Glory of God and all the Heavenly Host.
May God Our Heavenly Father Bless Us Today.
Remember to Ask Him to Bless You.
Like our earthly Fathers I am sure that God likes us to Ask.
Ephesians: Chapter 1 verse 3.
Praise be to the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us in the heavenly realms
with every spiritual blessing
Can you ever imagine all the beautiful spiritual blessings that we have been given? Just sit and think for a moment on some of them – then, what about the earthly blessings that we have. God loves us so much He really wants us to have the best of His blessings.
I wonder what special blessing is in store for us today?
So what are the Spiritual Blessings
that we have?
Let us have a think…. First would be our Salvation that Jesus really did die on the Cross for us. We cannot really imagine how that could be but we can accept that He did it for us to become Sons of the Living God i.e. our Father in Heaven.
Spiritual Blessings can be Peace, Love, Joy, Contentment, Healing, Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding and normal everyday Commonsense etc.,
Also Earthly Blessings…
What could they be….well we can have another think….we have families, friends, food and shelter, finance. But one really nice thing to think about is that we have all things that were made at the time of Creation….NOT Evolution. Look around at the beautiful things that our God has made, none of us can make even a birds feather, a flower, the wind, the waves, the seas, the fish and animals. Also he has made our Brothers and Sisters here and throughout this earth the we live on.
Let us Praise the God and Father of:
our Lord Jesus Christ.
God Bless You Today with whatever Blessings you have.
Ephesians: Chapter 1 verse 5.

Our God is the God of God’s
