It’s Good to be a Christian

This is an Oil Painting that I did.

In the Bible Paul says .. in –

Romans Chapter 1 verse 16.

“I’m not ashamed of the Gospel

because it’s the Power of God

unto salvation to those who believe.”

***

If you are a Christian that is marvellous and I can say God Bless you.

If you are not a Christian and would like to be one here below is a way to become one.

If you do really mean that you would like Jesus to be with you – just repent of your sins – tell Him you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done throughout your life and ask Him to come into your heart (your life) and He will.

***

When we are Christians we have a direct line to God our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ His Son. That is awesome, also we have The Holy Spirit in us to help us to pray.

If you are not sure how to pray it is good to pray The Lord’s Prayer. Which you can find in your Bible:

THE LORDS PRAYER.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed by your Name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the Kingdom, the Power and Glory are yours now and forever. Amen.

Have a Lovely day – Praise The Lord for today and all His Blessings to us.

Let us have Faith

Let us have Faith like Sheep who follow the voice of their Master.

James: Chapter 5 verse 16

……..The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

This is taken from the Old King James version of the Holy Bible.

*****

So what does it mean ?

– Let us have Faith ! –

Well – we need to have Faith to Pray and to believe that our Prayers are heard by God our Heavenly Father.

We can pray all sorts of Prayers and of course we do, mainly for our wants, not always for our needs. There is a difference of course and God will not always answer Prayers if what we pray for is not for our own good.

However if we really need to intercede for someone or something then James Chapter 5 verse 15 says — ‘and the prayer of Faith shall save the sick and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.’ (Remember it is the Prayer of Faith) no good just asking God to do something you must have faith to believe that he can. This is where it needs to be the effective Prayer of a Righteous man (or woman)

If we are not walking with Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and with The Holy Spirit what is the use of praying prayers into space? God hears our prayers through Jesus Christ our Lord. So they need to come straight from our heart and soul to be a fervent prayer.

We must mean truly what we are asking God for, not just a flimsy prayer hoping He will hear.

Yes of course He hears our Prayers – but I believe they fall by the wayside if we are not serious about them!

But when we are in trouble I find the shortest Prayer to pray is ‘Help Lord’ yes I am sure he hears our prayers for help because we do really mean it.

* God Bless you today as you Pray in Faith – Have a Lovely Day *

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.


The above is taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ here is the link if you would like to see the book. It is a daily devotional that can be used year after year.

***

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 *

Our Treasures*

The Fascine – Carnarvon N.W. Australia.

Proverbs: Chapter 10 verse 2

Ill-gotten treasurers are of no value

but righteousness delivers from death.

*

That is true isn’t it? If we have something that we have received wrongly, however much we treasure it we will still have that feeling of guilt i.e. that it is an ill-gotten thing.

We really can’t take anything that we know God does not want us to have.

What a release in our spirit we feel when we give back or release those wrong Treasures.

Jesus forgives and we are back in righteousness, delivered from the feeling of death and can rejoice in our righteousness. Praise The Lord!

*

The above is taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by. J.M.R. Larman.

So what wonderful Treasures do we have that maybe we should not have? Perhaps they could be some ungodly Books, or ungodly D.V.D’s maybe C.D’s

What about all the Treasures on our Computers? Could be Treasure’s of ungodly photo’s – hidden in a file for privacy. But God can see all things whether they be righteous or unrighteous.

Let us search our hearts and get rid of all that is not O.K.

We don’t have to ask or tell anyone about it – just do it – ask Jesus for forgiveness – feel the release in our spirit and get on with life as it should be lived in Righteousness and Truth.

It is a lovely feeling to be able to share the Love of The Lord when we are really walking in a bit more holiness.

A Special Way

Jesus is the Special Way.

John: Chapter 14 verse 6

Jesus answered,

“I am the way and the truth and the life.

No-one comes to The Father except through me.”

***

No other religion anywhere can go to God our Father in Heaven unless they accept Jesus Christ as Lord. We must invite Jesus into our hearts for our own spirit in us to be Born Again into the Kingdom of God. I praise The Lord that I have done that, what about yourself, remember today is a good day, if you have not already done so.

May we lead our family and friends in the Way the Truth and The Life! (Oil Painting by J. Larman)

As many of us know our God is the God of Love. So maybe today we can share the Love of God with all those who come before us. Just a smile will do or maybe say ‘hello’. There are many people who do not have anyone to talk to during the day so it is good if we can be pleasant towards them. If we can spare the time it is helpful to stand and listen to whoever we come in contact during each day.

Also the children need to eventually know the way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ, God’s only Son. Jesus say’s -let the little children to come to me. So as we talk to them let us give them a chance to talk to us. We cannot always say about Jesus but they will know that we care about them if we give them some of our time during the day.

If you are not sure about anything just think ‘What would Jesus do’?

If you know that Jesus is The Way the Truth and the Life it will be easy for you to use the Hot Line to God… our Heavenly Father…. Prayer of course is our Hot Line…..
Let the little children come to me. (Oil Painting by: J. Larman.)

Good Health

Here is some Good News for Today.

John: Chapter 9 verses 1 – 3 

And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth. His disciples asked Him, saying Master, who did sin, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents; but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

If we think about this, surely we can praise God for the things that He allows to go wrong in our bodies so that we can come to know Jesus through the healing He has received for us on the cross and be glad that Jesus is our healer. We need to come to know God our Father more and more each day, He wants us to give him praise and thanks for healing us to know that He is God and He is in control of our lives, that he loves us and wants us to be made whole. We do need to pray and ask, then to receive our healing and thank Him for it.

Well we know that we can’t talk to God on the mobile or landline phone but we do have a Hot Line to God and that is the Prayer Line. We can  use this Prayer Line day and night. i.e. Twenty Four hours a day as God our Heavenly Father is always available when we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. If you have any sort of problem or aches and pains please remember to use the Prayer Line right where you are, you do not have to sit in Church to specially Pray you can sit in your own lounge room or outside or wherever you may be – on the bus, in the train, on the plane – in the town or the country side. Remember it is not compulsory to kneel and pray as that is not always convenient, also to pray out loud or in your heart is O.K. as our Father in Heaven will still hear your prayers if they are relevant.

Yes we are Worthy

Hands Colour

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 fulfilled 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.

Taken from: ‘Drink from the Cup’  Book.

Well what can we say about being Worthy?  In the Dictionary it says – to be good enough, suitable, deserving.  So how do we feel about ourselves – often we feel we are not good enough and therefore do not deserve all the things that we have or even the things that we do are not good enough.

But the thing is that when we have accepted Jesus into our lives we have a helper – who is The Holy Spirit.  If we ask Him He will help us to be more Worthy, more deserving etc., as we walk with The Lord we will be able to show more care and love towards those in our family also our pets and people who we meet while shopping or travelling each day.  Also with the faith that we have – however large or small – remember we can Pray.  Jesus taught His Disciples to pray especially the one that we do know as The Lords Prayer.  If you are not sure how or what to Pray for this Prayer covers everything that we need as individuals.

God Our Heavenly Father loves us to Pray, so give it a go.  If you are not used to doing so, remember you are Worthy to Pray for your family and friends also do not forget to Pray for yourself.  God supplies all our needs but He does like us to ask and also the thank Him for all our  Blessings.

Jesus has made us Worthy to Receive and Worthy to Pray.

May God Our Heavenly Father Bless us today as we try to be more deserving of His Love.

Our Soul is Precious

This is a Painting of  a lovely peaceful Farm over looking the distant hills.

I pray that you find peace and love in God our Heavenly Father today.

Psalm 62 verse 1

My soul finds rest in God alone;

my salvation comes from Him.

*

When I sit and pray, do you know, my soul does find rest in God.

I pray that you find rest in God today.

We do know that our salvation comes from Him.

 God does love our souls to be at rest in Him,

whether we are at work,

play or in prayer.

 So today let us be at rest in God as we get on with our daily tasks etc.,

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

Well there we are then now we know what to do when we get stressed out !……yes, just sit for a while quietly and tell God our Heavenly Father what the matter is.  He can hear us you know, Jesus knows our thoughts and He sent The Holy Spirit to Comfort us .  However, unless we sit and tell God what is troubling us The Holy Spirit will not be able to comfort us.  We usually go on in our own sweet way thinking things will get better in a minute and are quite surprised that they don’t.  Well – what about stopping for a moment and telling God that we need help.

The Shortest Prayer that I know or can say when all seems to fail is:-………………Please Help me God………..

Be honest and say that you can’t do whatever you need to do on your own, tell Him the problem, it does not matter what the problem is He may not help unless you ask him to.

God our Heavenly Father has given us free will to choose to ask or not to ask – so it is up to us – if we would like His help or not.

So we can stay stressed out or Pray that God will help us and allow The Holy Spirit to comfort us in any kind of need that we are in.    As Christians we know that through Jesus we can pray straight to God our Father, no need to pray through Mary or any of the saintswe have a hot line or phone line to God.

Give it a try if you are a Christian……and you can only be a Christian if you have invited Jesus Christ our Lord into your life (into your heart) as some people say.

So if you are not a Christian reading this you may like to give it a go

with Jesus –  God’s Son.

*

I pray that you have a lovely Day today and that any Stress that is with you will start to dissipate any minute.

May God Bless You and your loved ones today.

“Ungodly Desires”

This Angel is a Pencil Drawing – by Jessie Larman

*

Jude: Chapter 1 verses 17-18

 But, dear friends,

remember what the apostles

of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.

 They said to you,

“In the last times there will be scoffers

who will follow their own

ungodly desires

***

Today, maybe we can try to follow Godly desires a bit better.

It may be difficult sometimes

but I for one do not want to be a scoffer

nor do I want to do ungodly things.

If you are a Christian you will be feeling the same way,

God will bless us for trying, that we do know.

Taken from Book: Drink from the Cup. Author J.M.R. Larman.

***

*** 

Do you realize that when we find it difficult not to sin

– we do really have a direct line to God

our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The quickest Prayer that I know is:-

  “Help Lord”

To Scoff at someone is to belittle them

or to mock them or to speak derisively,

especially about religion

or to taunt someone making them a laughing stock

to friends or people who may be listening.

***

Let us not stoop to some of these UNGODLY DESIRES !

***

* May God Bless you today

with the

Love of The Lord Jesus *

Let us Talk to Each Other

Yellow Scroll

3 John Chapter 1 verse 14

I hope to see you soon

and we will talk

face to face.

*****

John said the above while writing to his friends and I was just thinking it would be lovely to talk face to face with you.  It is lovely when we as Christians can talk to each other about the love of Jesus isn’t it?  As I can’t see you today to talk to I would like to say that I hope you have a lovely day, God Bless You.

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

Rose Bud

Well – as you can see on here, I can’t talk to you face to face, so I have put the scroll at the top of the page to remind us that even if we cannot talk face to face we can still communicate by writing to each other.  Even if it is only at special times like Birthdays or Christmas etc., It is still something special to receive a word from a friend.

Then again we can keep in touch by telephone, e-mail, or Skype or Facebook or Twitter etc., etc., 

There is no limit now to how we can keep in touch with family and friends and as Christians that is a really good thing to do.

But how often do we go on our merry way thinking we will get in touch tomorrow or later and sometimes tomorrow never comes.  Have we missed out on talking (not face to face) but talking especially to our loved ones, even to say ‘Hello” maybe the only friendly words they have heard that day.

Yes face to face the ideal way – many of us are far away – so let us pray that today would be a really good day to say that ‘Hello’ to someone we may have been meaning to and have not got around to it.

Anyway it is lovely to talk to you like this – so I hope you have had time to read and know that yes it would be lovely for me to talk to you FACE to FACE.

* GOD BLESS YOU TODAY *

I pray that you have a lovely day.
