Tonight I Pray that you have the desire to seek out the Lord and delight in spending time with Him! Realize like Mary did that there is great importance in just sitting at the feet of Jesus. When we wait upon Him, He will lead us where He wants us to be. I pray that you know that you have the Creator of the universe as your Lord and He loves you! What more could you need? I pray that you realize that it is when you are not connecting with Him at a deep level that you have a lack in your life and walk with Him. Our part in this life is to learn to put all of our trust into Him, refusing to worry about anything! I pray that you will forget what is behind you and press on to what is ahead the prize which God has called us heavenward in Jesus Christ!!! Walk In that LIGHT!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I love you all!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5Pz7JV
For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4
I am so glad that when I read scriptures like this one I know that the promises are true and my hope is secure. These promises are the quiet confidence. It is a supernatural certainty. When the Bible speaks of hope, it is not the hope of this world. Rather, it is somethingaltogether different. In fact, the Greek and Hebrew words that translate to “hope” speak of certainty. In the Bible, the word “hope” means a strong and confident expectation.
We get that hope from the Lord Himself and the Word of God. This is a lasting hope that gives me assurance each day!
How does our faith and hopes get stronger? Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Our faith also gets stronger when we are tested. It is during those times that no matter how hard life gets we can stand on these scriptures and the Lord will carry us through the trial. When He does we grow stronger in Him and His Word. He is our refuge and our strength in every storm.
Of course, you don’t have to build your faith on what I tell you. Try it yourself. Trust in the Lord and stand on His Word and then wait upon the Lord. He will keep His promise and lead you into His joy, love and light. I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day. God bless you!!! ♥♥♥
I Pray TONIGHT for an increase in revelation knowledge, wisdom and understanding. You will walk in supernatural favor and be anointed by the Most High God! I bind every spirit of rejection, failure and defeat over your life, your family, your finances and your calling! You will be blessed in everything the Lord has assigned you to do! You will hold HIS hand and walk through storms, only to come out of that storm and into the SON’s Light!!! I pray that the Lord break any fear, intimidation and anxiety that holds you back from fulfilling your dream and destiny in the name of Jesus! BE BLESSED! Amen and Amen… I Love you all!!!… God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5PWlSM
Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders which You have done,And Your thoughts toward us;There is none to compare with You.If I would declare and speak of them,They would be too numerous to count. Psalm 40:5
One of the things that I love so much about the Lord is how He thinks about us. It is amazing to me that God is thinking of me. And yet we are told here that His thoughts towards us cannot be counted. God is continually thinking about you, His child.
Psalm 139:17-18 says that God’s thoughts towards us are more than the grains of sand by the seashore. He is the Lord over all creation, yet He is so mindful of each of His creatures. Jesus said that He cares about the hairs of your head and the sparrows that fall (Luke 12:5-6). He is thinking about you now.
Sometimes I think He just wants us to breathe Him in, so that He can bless and restore us. Lift up empty hands of faith to receive His precious Presence. The Light, Life, Joy, and Peace that will flow freely from the Holy Spirit when we turn our focus to Him. Today I am just going to rest in Him and be blessed! I hope the you make the choice to rest in Jesus on this Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!!
TONIGHT I PRAY that you refuse to worry! In this world there’ll always be something enticing you to worry. That is the nature of this fallen world that we live in. Things are not as they should be. So the temptation to be anxious is constantly with you, trying to worm its way into your mind. I pray you realize the best defense is continual communication with the Lord, richly seasoned with Thanksgiving. I pray that you stay aware of HIS PRESENCE, allowing Him to fill your mind with His Light and Peace, leaving no room for fear. I pray this awareness lifts you above your circumstances, enabling you to see problems from HIS perspective. For when you do this with HIM you can keep the wolves of worry at bay. I pray that you never forget WHO lives within you. He can bring order to your day and help you to control your thoughts and actions. You only need to make the choice of how much of Him you want in your day… In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5P2gLB
I read a story about a ship that was discovered a number of years ago in the Arctic Ocean. It was manned by a crew that had frozen to death: the captain was standing over his captain’s log as if he was writing an entry in it, and people were lying in hammocks and different parts of the ship. The entry in the log showed that they had been drifting around for thirteen years before being discovered. The writer of the article called the ship “a floating sepulcher, manned by a frozen crew.”
I read that and thought, Now there is a description of religion at the time of Jesus Christ and a description of much of religion today. Everyone’s in position, but nothing’s actually happening. No life. Dead.
Paul wrote about the religion of the Jews in Romans 10: “For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes” (v.3-4).
I grew up in a religious home. Though I went to church and I knew all about God—that He had a Son who was born of a virgin and died on a cross—I lived in the spiritual ignorance that Paul wrote about and used to live in (see Phil. 3:4-9 and 1 Tim. 1:13). It’s the ignorance of believing that doing good will get you to heaven.
So many religious people have a whole system worked out where they work hard to reach their own standard of righteousness and feel good about doing it. Then they say, “I deserve heaven. I worked hard for it. I’ve gone to church my whole life.”
I love working in my yard. I’ll go out and work, and after a while I’ll say, “Woo! Look at me! I pulled a weed!” You do get a sense of accomplishment when you work hard for something and you see the job well done. But we should never carry that feeling or mindset over onto our relationship with God.
Jesus said, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matt. 5:17). In other words, Jesus came to fulfill all the requirements of the Law of Moses that nobody else could. Jesus lived a perfect life and then died for our sins. Trying to get to heaven by your own works and righteousness is like telling God, “I can do better than that. I can do better than the perfect righteousness that only Your Son could ever attain.”
Many believers still want to live under the Law, whether that’s by keeping the Sabbath or certain dietary restrictions. But you need to realize you’re not under the Law; you’ve been given the righteousness of God through faith in Christ. And the only kind of righteousness God will accept is the righteousness He freely gives. That’s why the religious person has trouble with the grace of Jesus Christ: it sounds way too easy. But you don’t get saved by doing good works; you do good works once you’re saved. Good works are the demonstration, not the method, of getting saved.
If the only righteousness that God will accept is the kind He gives, and the kind that He gives is the perfect righteousness of His perfect Son, you can’t do any better than that. May our approach to God be not one of human achievement, but may we trust more and more in the already finished work of Christ on the cross.
What a great Word from Pastor Skip Heitzig today. Sometime we allow our flesh to get in there and try to get us to believe that it is by our works that we are saved, when nothing could be further from the truth. We are saved by God’s free gift called grace through faith and not of our “works” lest any man (or woman or boy or girl) can boast. Jesus said it all in three little words… “It Is Finished”….
I hope that if you don’t know Jesus you ask Him to be your Lord and Savior today! Simply pray this: Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that You took the pain and the sins of world on the cross to give me new life. I ask You to come into my heart and to give me Your peace and joy. I confess that I am a sinner that I have gone my own way and have done wrong. Please forgive me for my sins. I receive You now as my Lord and Savior. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Help me to follow You and to serve You all the days of my life. Thank you so much for loving me, in Jesus name I pray, Amen. If you prayed that prayer you are a new creature in Christ Jesus! You are Born Again! God bless you!!! http://dlvr.it/5NrNnf
TONIGHT I PRAY that you will rejoice and be thankful!!! That as you walk with the Lord through this day, practice trusting and thanking Him all along the way. For it is when we trust in Him that His peace will flow into us. Thankfulness lifts you up above your circumstances. I pray you realize that He does His greatest works through people with grateful, trusting hearts. Rather than planning and evaluating, practice trusting and thanking the Lord continually. I pray that as you rest in the Lord Jesus, a shift will take place that will revolutionize your life. Walk in that faith! Walk in that trust!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I love you all! God bless your sweet hearts!!!!♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5NfkDX
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. Ephesians 1:4-6
If you are a Christian; it is because God chose you. Jesus told His disciples, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you” (John 15:16). And for each of us who have received Jesus Christ as our Savior, we discovered that He chose us. This confuses many people because they realize that we have the ability to choose, and that is true. But God who knows all things, knows what we will choose; and He doesn’t pick losers. He picks winners.
You may say, “but that isn’t fair? What if God didn’t choose me?” Have you accepted Jesus Christ? If so, then He chose you. If you haven’t accepted Him, do it and you will find out you were chosen. If you don’t want to accept Him, why do you care if you were chosen or not?
I hope that you will make the choice to put Jesus Christ as the the center of your lives, so that you can walk in His word, His will, and His way for your lives. Take the time to start fresh. Make a commitment to get into the precious Word of God. It could change your life forever! I hope that each and every one of you has a Simply Heavenly weekend. God bless you!!! http://dlvr.it/5NTgx7
Tonight I Pray that you realize that Jesus not only loves you but He likes you! We can take everything to Him in prayer. I pray that you trust Him to meet your needs one day at a time. I pray that you delight yourself in the Lord and rejoice in Him with singing. As you are still in His Presence, listen for His voice and for when you do there is a treasure there just waiting to be found as He pours out His blessings upon you. Rest in the Lord tonight and let your slumber be filled His Peace that passes all understanding. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5NJF73
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Amazing Grace How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me I once was lost and now I am found . Was blind but now I see.… Grace is amazing! It frees us from condemnation of the law and the tyranny of pleasing people and adjusting our lives to the demands and expectations of human opinion. It gives relief and the enjoyment of freedom along with all its benefits. It silences needless guilt and removes self-imposed shame.
Grace is the gift that the Lord gives to us freely. They didn’t need the rope to tie Jesus arms to that cross. He climbed on that cross willingly for each and every one of us. The death of Jesus Christ was not an accident but an act of devotion to us. You can call it simple. Call it a gift. But don’t ever call it easy. Call it what it is: Simply Grace.
I hope that as all of you go out today, take just a moment to stop and just say thank you Jesus!!! For His greatest gift that we never deserved. Have a Simply Heavenly Day!!!
Anyone who continues to live in Him will not sin. But anyone who keeps on sinning does not know Him or understand who He is. 1 John 3:6
When I first read this verse I was kind of upset. I was thinking to myself, “ how am I going to be able to do this, when I am still in this flesh?” Does this scripture mean that I have to live a perfect life in order to really know God? If this is true then I am sunk!!! But the word here for “sin” is in what is called in the Greek the linear present. What John is telling us here is that you can’t just continue to live an unrepentant lifestyle and still be considered a Christian.
It doesn’t mean that we aren’t going to sin at all. It is that the pattern of our life changes when we truly are born again. We become a new creature “IN” Christ Jesus. We repent of our sin and we have a change of heart. We don’t want to live the same old way. We want to live to please the Lord because we have fallen in love with Him.
Does this mean we are never going to slip up and sin? No, we all make mistakes but the difference is as we walk with the Holy Spirit daily we change. Over time instead of just walking with Him we begin to walk “IN” Him. This is where we begin to see great changes happen, when we begin to feed the Holy Spirit inside of us with the Word of God. When we feed on the Word of God daily we will grow stronger as Christians. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side; it is greener where you water it. I hope you all have a Simply Heavenly Day!!! God bless you!!!
Tonight I pray for those who are suffering and broken. God sees your hurt and pain, and I ask for HIS restoration and peace to be upon you. You can rest knowing that He is working things out for your good! I pray that you put all of your trust in HIM. Allow Him to release His greatness into your life. To Release all of the power of Jesus, I pray for healing and the health of our families and loved ones…I pray that YOU guide us and give us wisdom Lord Jesus…I pray that YOU bless our lives…I pray for YOUR peace and love to cover every one of us…I pray for family problems to be solved and for people to meet their right spouses…I pray for jobs, protection of children, the homeless and the Lost. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I Love You All!!!! God bless you!!! :):) http://dlvr.it/5MNcxz
