The Secret Place

We were conceived in the Secret Place

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.

So what can we do that will be special today or maybe each day that will be pleasing to Our Father in Heaven. One thing we can do is to try to be kind to those who come before use each day. That would be a good thing to do.

Do you have a Special Place that you go to sometimes to Pray or talk to The Lord Jesus. Maybe a special chair to sit in to Pray or a Special Room. Or do you choose a Special Time each day to Pray. I think any of these things will be pleasing to God.

May God Bless us as we try our best to Pray to Him in that Secret Place.

Have a Lovely Day Today.

Should we Speak for Others?

Speaking out may help those who do not know what to say. The above is a Painting I did of a Father and Child..

Proverbs: 31 v 8

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,

for the rights of all who are destitute.”

***

We do need to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves,

especially the little children,

the babies,

the unborn that people want to abort.

Speak up for those who cannot speak,

pray for them,

don’t let the devil have them.

Pray for those in the world who are destitute,

that they may come to know Jesus today.

So – what can we say to make things better for someone today….. well we could say ‘hello’ and ask how they are. Or we could speak to them on the phone, ask how they are and also maybe ask if they would like us to pray for anything special that they need. We can therefore speak up for them in regard to a prayer….. many people are not sure how to pray….. how to ask God our Heavenly Father for whatever they may be in need of.

Many, even some Christians are not sure if they can ask God for something for themselves.

They pray for others but feel they don’t like to ask for themselves.

However in the Bible it says ask and you will receive…..that of course is if you know Jesus as Lord of your life….. i.e. that you have invited Him into your heart.

We can speak out and ask for other peoples needs. Also remember we can ask someone else to pray for us.

In the world we need to speak up in our communities, our towns, our villages when we see a need that others cannot speak up about. That is another way we can look after each other, wherever we live.

Let us Pray…… Let us speak up for others.

* I hope you have a lovely day today with your family and friends *

It is Good to Pray

Morning Glory in the photo above looks beautiful – it was taken in my Garden. The above picture reminds me of trumpets…the flowers are very fragile, the petals very soft to touch. It is a vine (a creeper) and looks nice along a fence line. But can get very much out of hand if not kept in check.

Psalm 116 verse 1

I love The LORD, for He heard my voice;

He heard my cry for mercy.

***

What would my life be without you LORD, you are my life, you did hear my cry. I praise you LORD with all my heart and soul and all that is within me. Amen.

We could send up a Prayer today.

It is good to start the day off with a prayer – because sometimes we seem to get so busy that we either forget or don’t get time to stop for a few minutes and think about things that we should pray for. What or who should we pray for then?

Well let us see – we need to pray for our own families so that our Heavenly Father would be kind enough to bless them. We can’t expect Him to do that unless we actually ask Him to. Also there are many things and people in this world that need help for healing, finance, the list goes on. So there is not a shortage of things to pray about.

One good thing to pray about is for the Town or City that we live in and the people who govern them. We cannot all be missionaries and to go to the underdeveloped countries to help – but in our own prayer time we can at least pray and ask God to Bless them.

My latest book is a Year book of small Daily readings from the Bible with a comment about the reading and can be useful especially for our own private time to read just a small piece from the Bible each day. Maybe while we have a sit down with a Cuppa ?

Here is the Link for the book….’Drink from the Cup’

* I pray that you have a lovely day today *

God Bless You with the Love of The Lord Jesus and fellowship with The Holy Spirit today and always. Amen.

It is good to pray for Family and Friends.

This Oil Painting may remind you of a Farm somewhere, how nice to pray for the people who are farming especially here in Australia trying to recover from the Bush Fires, Drought and Floods – also lately the Cyclonic Winds and Sandstorm that was over our State of W.A.

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 fulled 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.

Bees drink from the Cup of Nectar
May we use our hands and Pray today to bless someone.

Well maybe today we can pray for whoever The Lord brings before us in the Spirit or in the Flesh. People who come into our lives each day are deserving of our prayers and also maybe our help. Each day is a New Day to start afresh to do something nice for people. Maybe it could be just a kind word to our friends and family. Especially to the children who are in our lives and those who are in great need of their parents love. We can pray that their needs be met and they are fed and watered throughout the world today……………..

If we are unable to go out we can keep in touch with others by phone, or a card or letter, maybe on the internet is quite appropriate in this day and age. Our God – our Heavenly Father has given each of us something to do, or someone to pray for: We are all different but we are one in The Lord. Jesus loves us just as we are yes – that is you and me and supplies all our needs. What more could we ask?

May God Our Heavenly Father Bless You Today and grant you all your needs. (remember not your wants but your needs)

That gives us food for thought!

*Have a Lovely Day*

Choose to Love Others

Let us love others with the Love of The Lord Jesus

St. Luke: 6 verse 32

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?

Even sinners love those who love them!

*****

That’s true isn’t it!  But as Christians we are meant to love the unlovely, just as Jesus did – to help them, befriend them, most of all to show them the love of Jesus.  Even in our own families there are relatives that we feel we cannot be with for long, we have to overcome that feeling and remember God made them and we are not only to tolerate them but to love them.  It can be a bit of a problem that Scripture but remember we are to overcome and nothing is impossible with God.  So we had better ask Him for His grace to help us.  It’s amazing what happens when we ask His help.

At this particular time where most of us have to stay indoors or isolated because of the Corona Virus the above reading is worth thinking about – because lots of families will be shut in together and will miss the freedom of going out to work or play.

It may be difficult to all get along together at close quarters for the 14 days that our Government wants us to do. 

But it is the best thing that we can do to help our family and friends also our work mates or colleagues.

So let us do it with a good grace remembering that it is not as bad as what Jesus had to endure for us.

I Pray that you all keep well and happy at this present time and will be able to help where needed if someone less fortunate than yourself needs help for shopping etc., if they are incapacitated or isolated with no family to help them.

May GOD BLESS YOU and keep you and your love ones safe.

Our Soul is Special

May our Soul be Gentle

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.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

Let us be Gentle as a Dove.
This is one of my Oil Paintings.

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

Are we Obedient?

The Angel of The LORD.

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.

Children are Beautiful

The Little Children and Jesus

Jesus with Children

Oil Painting by Artist:  J.M.R. Larman

*

Mark Chapter 10 verses 13-16

People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them but the Disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, he was indignant.  He said to them, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”.  And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

Taken from the TNIV Study Bible.

How do you feel about little children?

  Do you love them or think they are just a nuisance.  You may not have any yourself – but – just think they are all around us in this world.

How dare people abuse them.

Everyone who hurts a little child (apart from chastising them) will have to give account one day to God – Our Father in Heaven, who will judge them according to what they have done.

Oil Painting by J.M.R. Larman

Jesus may weep oceans of tears for all the little children that are not blessed with loving people to look after them. 

Babies when born are helpless and unable to look after themselves if left they will just die, they are not like some of the creatures that are born ready to feed and fend for themselves.

So we do need to realize that Children are precious, they can bring us much pleasure when we find time to care for them.  That also includes Teenagers – they are still our children and need our care and support.

Have a lovely Day and maybe share the Love of The Lord with a Little One today.

May God Bless You with His Peace and Love.

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.

Snowflake blk

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.

Proverbs:  12 verse 28

In the way of righteousness there is life;

along that path is immortality.

*

Today is another day for us to walk in righteousness,

to walk in true life on our way to immortality,

to eternity.

 Walk in righteousness with Jesus today,

tell Him you love Him and look forward

to the day when we walk in Heaven with Him.

*

Taken from Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

Well what does it mean then to walk in righteousness?

I think it means that we should be careful what we say and do, especially in front of our little children and also in the presence of our grown up family and friends.  Children mainly only know what they are taught, so we do need to try to teach them the right way to live.  That surely would be walking in righteousness for us to show them how.

We all make mistakes and cannot be perfect all the time, however we can say sorry if we have said or done the wrong thing.  Jesus forgives us when we repent and say with are sorry, then of course we can feel free of any guilt that we have said or done the wrong thing and hopefully remember not to do it again.

Yes Children need to be taught to do the right thing – also they need to be taught to say the word sorry to their friends and family, even as we need to do so.

I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Righteousness with The Lord, remember The Holy Spirit will help you if you ask Him – especially if you are struggling with any problems regarding your walk with Jesus. 

* God Bless You Today *
