John: Chapter: 16 verse 31
……..Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.
As Christians we know that God our Father is with us.
When Jesus went back to Heaven He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us – to teach, comfort and also to fellowship with us.
Where The Holy Spirit is, there also are The Father and The Son.
Just think how blessed we are – we are never alone!
From ‘Drink from the Cup’ book., by J.M.R.Larman.
So if you are feeling lonely today, stop and think for a while, make a cup of coffee, tea or a favourite drink. Then sit quietly and thank The Lord for all the Blessings that He has allowed and is giving us each day.
Let us think do we have food and shelter, are we blessed with a Husband, Wife and children or good friends or even a special Pet that we can rely on and talk to when we need help or a shoulder to cry on.
Well we may have so many Blessings that is is difficult to count them all and yet………we still feel lonely.
Why oh! why do we feel like that ?……
While we sit quietly let us remember that Jesus must have felt very lonely at times when people did not understand Him. Sometimes He went off to a special place to pray on His own to His Father in Heaven until He felt better about things…….Jesus who’s Father is in Heaven is also our Father who we can go to at any time of the day or night if we are a Christian.
So let us try not to be lonely today, talk to The Holy Spirit and ask Him to comfort you and guide you out of that feeling of loneliness into the Joy of The Lord. Maybe put on some cheerful music – remember we need the Spirit of Praise for the Spirit of Heaviness. Then the spirit of loneliness will begin to go away and we can get on with our day in a cheerful way.
Maybe have another Cuppa!!!!!!!!!!!!
* Have a lovely Day Today *
Psalm: 98 verse 2
The LORD has made His salvation known
revealed His righteousness
to the Nations.
We need to pray for the Nations – that they remember the righteousness of The LORD. The Leaders of the Nations need our Prayers so they may govern in righteous.
Today is a good day to pray afresh for all Nations on Earth to come to the knowledge and love of God.
You may like to pray this Prayer below – taken from The Book of Prayers by: J.M.R.Larman.
A Prayer for the Government.
I would like to thank you for our Government God.
Would you Bless them all today who are working in the Government of this Country please, so that they may Govern righteously and truthfully each day. May our Parliamentarians come to know Jesus as Lord of their lives so that eventually we could possibly have a truly Christian Government.
I pray for good health for our Government workers, especially for the Prime Minister, for your divine protection of him as he travels around the world promoting good relationships towards this Country.
Lord I pray for all people in authority, every government Dept., throughout the world for their thoughts and actions to be righteous especially now in this world today with all it’s problems. Please bless all Government workers and heads of State, Prime Ministers, Governor Generals and Ambassadors in every Country throughout world, keep them safe in your care.
Let them remember that people are precious and that they are working for us not just for themselves and their friends, that we need to be governed with propriety and in the love of The Lord Jesus.
Let us not judge them too harshly when they make mistakes making laws that we are not in agreement with. We know that you will judge them God when the time comes for some of the outrageous laws that have been passed that are not in agreement with your word in the Bible. May wrong laws be rescinded and the correct ones put in their place. Give the members of Parliament boldness to vote with a clear conscience on future debates and laws that will be right for governing our Country. Amen.
May God Bless us and our Families today with
The Love of Jesus His Son.
