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 *

Keep Watch

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’

Here is the Link for this book: https://www.amazon.com.au/Drink-Heavenly-Blessings-straight-Bible-ebook/dp/B08F2YC95L/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=drink+from+the+cup&qid=1598250253&s=books&sr=1-4

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.

*Love is to Share *

A Lovely Bouquet of Flowers, can show Love to someone

1 Corinthians: Chapter 13 verse 1.

……. but if I have not love,

I am only a resounding gong

or a clanging cymbal.

***

Imagine being empty and sounding like a clanging cymbal,

we do need to be filled with love,

the kind of love that only Jesus can give us.

To receive His love so that we can give it out to others

we really must want the Love of God Our Heavenly Father

and of Jesus Christ His Son to be in our hearts.

By the Holy Spirit we then can share the Love of The Lord.

Shall we walk in Love?

Shall we walk in Love with our Family and Pets?

2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.

Please would you help me to walk in your Love today Lord! Amen.

Well it would be nice if we could do just that and walk in Peace and Love with our Family and Friends one day at a time.

Here is a Poem taken from the Book of ‘Verses’ by J. M. R. Larman

God’s Love

Can it be Lord, that you love me, as I sit and wonder about Eternity?

One day I should be there with Jesus my Lord.

Who, I know by your Angels God  –  is truly adored.

Almighty God, Ruler of the Universe, how can it be that you think of me?

Small and insignificant that’s who I am.

Yes, you sent your Son Jesus to rescue even me.

It is beyond my comprehension to consider these things.

So I shall sit in Your presence and pray to believe in your unconditional love.

Love full of peace. Love without Measure.

Poured down upon us, as we sit, stand or kneel,

in wonder and praise at your Glorious Presence

in Eternity.

I Pray that you have a Lovely Day Today walking in the Love of The Jesus and in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit *

Walk in Love

What a beautiful Wild Looking Sunset

2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.

***

Yes you are a God of Love and to love you means just what the above verse says – that we walk in obedience to your ways. We can only do that when we have invited Jesus into our lives and we live in your Kingdom on this earth. Praise you Heavenly Father that you enable us to walk in obedience today.

We can walk in love with our family. What better love than to walk in Gods ways with our Love ones, today and always.

It may seem odd to think that to walk in Love with the Lord is to walk in Obedience to Him. The only way really that we can do that is to read our Holy Bible to see how! It is good to read part of the Bible each day – part of the New Testament of course but not to neglect reading part of the old Testament. Just a small bit each day is better than not at all. You could of course read one of the Psalms sometimes for something different to read. It is always special to find a quiet time during the day to sit and read even a few verses of a Psalm.  

I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Love with your family and friends so that you know that you are walking in Obedience with God – because that shows that you Love Him our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and The Holy Spirit. (The Holy Spirit will help us to be obedient if we ask Him to)

Wonderful Things

Angel Drawing by J.M.R.Larman.

____________________

Exodus: Chapter 11 verse 9

The LORD had said to Moses,

“Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you  – 

so that my wonders may be multiplied in Egypt”

***

Do you realize that even today The LORD is still performing His wonders.

If you do not know what is going on in this day and age,

please find a spirit filled church and read some of the reports that are coming in from around the world.

It is incredible what The LORD is doing.

The same now as 2000 years ago, healing the sick,

giving sight to the blind,

bringing people out of darkness into His Kingdom of Light.

The list goes on.

Remember He needs us and wants us to participate with The Holy Spirit

to accomplish the same works that Jesus did on earth.

Drawing by J.M.R. Larman.
The above taken from the Book – ‘Drink from the Cup” by J.M.R.Larman.

We are very fortunate that The Lord Jesus uses Doctors, Nurses, Specialists and many other people to help with healing us for our bodies.

But remember that we need to submit ourselves to our Heavenly Father to receive the blessings that is in store for us and for Jesus to heal our Soul, our mind our thinking.

Let us try to listen to God our Heavenly Father for instructions each day to live a good life living in the Kingdom of God while we are on this earth.

Maybe we can Pray for God’s Wonders to be in our lives and the lives of our family and loved ones, let us not be like Pharaoh who refused to listen, remember what happened to him and to his Kingdom.  If you are not sure then you can find the reading of the Exodus in your Bible. 

* I Pray that The LORD’S Wonders may be evident in your life.

Have a Lovely day may God Bless You with Love, Peace and Joy.*

What about Moses?

2GlowBookGlasses2

Malachi: Chapter 4 verse 4.

Remember the law of my servant Moses,

the decrees and laws

I gave Him at Horeb for all Israel.

***

Do you remember the law that was given to Moses, we know that as Christians we live by grace now and not by law.  However we do need to live according to the Commandments that were given to Moses.

If we break one we may as well have broken the lot because in the eyes of God – sin is sin however large or small.

 I am thankful that we can ask Jesus to forgive us and that He does, especially as we go before God asking for all that we seem to ask Him for!

Yellow Scroll

I have put a picture of a Scroll on here today to remind us that the Ten Commandments  may have been put on a Scroll to be read out to people.

Moses of course brought them down from the mountain on the tablets that had been written “with the finger of God” 

We are very fortunate that we can read them in our Holy Bible (Exodus 31:18) it is good to check them out once in a while to see what we should be doing and possibly not what we are doing.

One of them says ‘that you should have no other Gods”

So what other Gods do we have in our lives…. maybe some sort of Idols, or maybe the love of money, food, gossip, television, there are lots of things that take priority in our lives instead of living a godly life with the love of Jesus and walking with the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.  One thing is to love our neighbour as ourselves (difficult that one – if we are not keen about talking to some people) even family members.

It really is a Christian challenge to try to keep the Ten Commandments isn’t it? 

Hands Colour

Let us Pray that we can become more Godly day by Day walking in the Love of The Lord.

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us Today

Be Holy

The above is an ‘Oil Painting” of a Vision that someone had.

*

Leviticus:  Chapter 19 verses 1-2

The LORD said to Moses,

Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them:

  ‘Be holy because –

I, The LORD your God, am Holy.’

*

Today we need to be reminded of this – we need to be holy because the LORD our God is Holy.  How can we do this you may well ask?  Possibly in lots of ways but one thing we can do, is to try to keep ourselves from the evils of this world.

God has called us to be Holy.

That means we are set aside for Him.  Let us try to stay that way for The LORD our God each day.

*

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

We can only take one day at a time while we live on this earth to try to be Holy.

We are not that clever to be able to do this by ourselves. 

We need the help of The Holy Spirit to help guide us each day.

Really when you think about it this can only happen if we are a Christian, so we best become one and get on with it.

So, you may say that is not very holy to talk like that but it is the truth and in the Bible it says ‘the truth will set you free’  Therefore for us to be holy it is an on going thing.   We don’t like to not be able to do some of the worldly things.  However, we should really try to obey the Ten Commandments that were give to Moses.  If you are not sure what they are they can be found in your Holy Bible……if you do not happen to have one…….then maybe look on Google because there you can find most things.

Today let us hopefully not get really cross with anyone and upset them, let us not swear or steal or commit different kinds of crime.  Let us try to love our neighbour as ourselves (that is one of the Commandments) I am not going to list them here because if you want to be Holy then it is up to you to try, no-one else can do that for you.

Please let us remember to Pray and ask God our Heavenly Father to allow The Holy Spirit to help us as we walk in truth and love with Jesus our Lord.

* I pray that you have a lovely Holy Day today *

Trustworthy

2 Timothy: Chapter 2 verse 11

Here is a trustworthy saying:

If we died with Him,

we will also live with Him.

*

When we invite Jesus into our lives, we become new creatures in Christ.

Our old selves have died and we become one with Him.

 Therefore praise The Lord we do live with Him today also forever and ever.  Amen.

*

From the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

Well – what do you think?  Is it better to live with Jesus or not to have Him in your life?

This is a decision that only you can make, I can’t make it for you nor can anyone else.  It is a personal matter but one that needs to be taken seriously because if you invite Jesus into your life then I believe you must accept the Holy Bible and all that is written in it.

It does say that a man shall leave his Mother and Father and cleave to his wife and they shall be one.  Then they are to go forth and multiply, only a man and woman can achieve this.  Even the animals need a male and a female to reproduce.  Everything is ordered in the Bible to produce after their own kind, every seed shall bear fruit of the same kind i.e. an Oak Tree seed ( that is an acorn) cannot grow as an apple tree.

There is no reason why two men or two women cannot love one another because we are commanded to Love one another but a marriage cannot take place with two people of the same sex, because they cannot go forth and multiply, so it is an ungodly union to ask to be married as stated in the Holy Bible.

No one can deny that they cannot live together as friends and lovers it is up to their decision to do so.  Maybe there could be a different definition of their union to make it legal as they want to benefit from the government gratuities  that married couples receive.  They also want to be recognized having an official ceremony to declare their oath to one another and be accepted by the world.

So what could the official and legal ceremony be named as they should not be married in a Church because it is against the teaching of the Holy Bible.

A Legal Civil Ceremony could take place to show the world that they are dedicated to each other so that it would be a legal and binding oath to have and to hold until death they do part.   Maybe come under the title of Life Partners which therefore would include which ever sex they are.

Also this would free all Churches to not have to worry about them being accepted and married in the Church of God.

Jesus is Lord

May God Bless you today and always.

Have a lovely Day.

*Do Something Nice today *

1 Corinthians: Chapter 15 verse 58.

Therefore,

my dear brothers,

stand firm.

 Let nothing move you.

 Always give yourselves fully

to the work of The Lord,

because you know

that your labour in The Lord

is not in vain.

***

Our labour in The Lord is definitely not in vain.

He sees all the things that we do for Him.

Everything is recorded of our works.

So today maybe we could do something nice for The Lord Jesus.

***

From  the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

So what then is our labour in The Lord?  I believe it is mostly to keep the Ten Commandments that were given all those years ago to Moses.  Well, some people think that we do not need to read the Old Testament in the Bible but we do need to heed what it says.

If you have never read the Old Testament feel free to give it a go.

You may be surprised and learn something new each day.  You only need to read a bit each day, it’s no good just reading it if you cannot digest what it is saying and just reading for the sake of saying that you have read it.  Take your time and just read a few verses at a time so that  you can understand more fully what those verses really mean.  There is no hurry and just a few minutes at the same time each day will make a lot of difference.

So to do something nice today – would be perhaps to get up and go for a walk and say ‘Hello’ to someone.  Or to visit someone you know who has not been able to go out for a while.  We can take a little gift, perhaps a posy of Flowers, a packet of Biscuits to stay and have a cuppa with them.  If you have made extra cake or cakes, someone may appreciate your visit if you take some to them.

We don’t always have to stay and talk – just deliver your gift to them at the door and say * God Bless * to them.

That I believe – is  also working or doing something for the Lord Jesus.

We can’t all be in the limelight doing great things but I am sure that The Lord acknowledges our efforts to help our families and friends.  

One of the Commands is to Love our Neighbours as ourselves…….a bit difficult sometimes but never the less it is a Commandment that we should think about…..well you may ask who is my neighbour?  Just the normal people we meet each and every day, I think that they are our neighbours in this world.

* May God Bless Us Today

as We Stand Firm

to do the Work of The Lord *
