For He says; “trust in me and I will make all of your paths straight.” I pray that He gives you a great hunger for His Word so that you will grow in His Will and Way for your life and never fall away or forget the promise that He has made to all of us. “ I am with you always even until the end of the age.” Let this assurance fill you with His Peace and Joy so that you can rest in the light of His Love.

Our Present Possession
God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. —Colossians 1:19–20
Many of the blessings the Bible promises are still in our future. The hope of heaven and our new, wonderful resurrection bodies is still ahead. But the peace of God? That is our present possession. That is something that belongs to us here and now. From the first moment that we place our faith in Christ, we can begin to experience the peace of God.
Philippians 4:7 promises, “The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. “I know this peace in my life, and if you belong to Jesus, I’m sure you know it as well. I can think back to the day when I put my faith in Christ at age seventeen. One of the first things I remember is a sense of peace filling my heart. It was as though someone had slipped a heavy backpack from my shoulders. It wasn’t until later when I read that the Bible promises peace.
Many people think that peace is simply an absence of conflict or anxiety. To imagine it on a dial, they think if they could get the needle out of the negative red zone and up to “normal, “they would be experiencing peace. But biblical peace is much more than that. It is a strong, elevating, positive good in our lives. It isn’t just an absence of anxiety; it is the presence of something wonderful beyond our comprehension.
Peace has been given to us as a gift from God because we have been justified by faith. It isn’t describing a feeling; it’s describing a fact. It doesn’t come from what we are, but from what He has done.
It’s a cause and effect in our lives. The cause: being justified by faith in Christ. The effect: peace beyond any human explanation. But you can’t have the effect without the cause. In other words, you can’t have the peace of God until you first have peace with God. If we are fighting with God and continually resisting His plan and purpose for our lives, then we won’t experience His peace. I hope that you all have a Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!!
I Pray Tonight that you take everything to God in prayer and realize that all of your mistakes can be recycled into something good through HIS transforming Grace!!! Leave all of them right there with Him. I pray that you trust in Him and do not be afraid. Keep your eyes on Jesus and draw ever closer to Him. I pray that as you grow closer to Him that you begin to see yourself from His perspective. For it is when we begin to look through His eyes we see that we are His beloved child. He will take our errors and weave each one of them into an intricate work that is good. I pray that we realize that in Him we have redemption from sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. I pray that you remember He is our song, our strength and that He wants us to live in conscious awareness of His Presence as we journey together towards heaven. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/7CVbw2
“[Love] believes all things” (1 Cor. 13:7).Love always expects the best of others.
In Luke 15 Jesus tells a parable about a father who had two sons. The younger son asked for his share of the family inheritance, then left home and squandered it on sinful pursuits. When he realized his folly, he decided to return home and ask his father’s forgiveness. So “he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him, and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him, and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and be merry’” (vv. 20-23).
That’s a beautiful illustration of love’s eagerness to forgive, but it also implies another characteristic of love. While the son was still far away, the father saw him coming. How could that be? Because he was watching for his son— anticipating and longing for his return. Love forgives when wrongs are committed against it, but it also expects the best of others. That’s what it means to believe all things (1 Cor. 13:7). That son had hurt his father deeply, but his father never lost hope that his son would return.
I know a Christian woman who has been married to an unbelieving husband for thirty years. Yet she continues to say, “He will come to Christ someday.” She isn’t blind to the situation, but her love for her husband has transformed her earnest desire into an expectation. She believes he will turn to Christ because love always expects the best.
Perhaps you have a spouse or child who is an unbeliever or has drifted away from the Lord. Don’t lose heart! Expect the best and let that expectation motivate you to pray more fervently and set a godly example for your loved ones to follow.
Suggestions for Prayer:Ask God to guard your heart from cynical and suspicious attitudes toward others. I really enjoyed this devotional from John MacArthur. I hope that you all have a Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!!
Tonight I Pray that you realize that the Lord wants you to experience the riches of your salvation. Experience the joy of being a new creation in Christ Jesus, the old things have passed away and behold, all things have become new! You are loved perfectly and constantly. I pray that you stop judging yourself based on how you look or feel on a certain day. Stop trying to fix yourself, instead fix your eyes upon Jesus, He is the lover of your soul. Instead of judging yourself, use that energy to praise the Lord. Come to Him with an attitude of thanksgiving. I pray that you concentrate on staying close to Him at all times. For when your focus is fixed on Him your walk will be an authentic one. Refresh yourself in His Presence, trust in Him each moment of your day knowing that He is with you, watching over you wherever you go. He will never leave you or forsake you. Stand on that faith!!! In Jesus name I Pray, Amen and Amen…. I Love You All!!! God Bless You!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/7BynN6
I Pray Tonight that you come to the Lord with a thankful heart, realizing that when you do He will help you through every difficult time and your problems will fade and lose their power to trip you up. For it is when we let go and give everything to Him that we are set free from worry and despair. I pray that you trust in Him enough to let Him have complete control of your life as He chooses. Don’t keep trying to make things happen according to your ways. I pray that you get a real hunger for His Word so that you can give every part of your mind, body spirit and soul over to Him so that the Holy Spirit can move mightily through you and allow you to walk in His Power and Glory!! Refresh yourself in His Presence and rest in the light of His love. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God Bless You!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/7BRZSt
Letters of Referenceby Charles R. SwindollO Lord, who may abide in Your tent?Who may dwell on Your holy hill?He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,And speaks truth in his heart. Psalm 15:1-2
September 12, AD 61
We are considering a man to serve as a manager in the copper plant of our growing company, Corinthian Chariots, Inc. We are an aggressive, innovative firm with plans for expansion into major metropolitan regions like Rome, Athens, Antioch, and Jerusalem. We are looking for future employees who would fit into a visionary business like ours. Because you have worked with him for several years, I have chosen to write you and ask if you would be so kind as to send us a letter of recommendation regarding this individual. He comes highly recommended to us by others, but none have worked as closely or known him as well as you. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. His name is Alexander, the coppersmith.
It would be interesting to discover how the apostle would have answered such a query. Knowing what he knew about Alexander (1 Timothy 1:18-20; 2 Timothy 4:14-15), I wonder if he would’ve said the hard thing.
Probably so. Even though he was “the apostle of grace,” Paul would have done the company no favor by fudging with the facts. Being committed to grace in no way suggests turning a deaf ear to reality.
Your nephew Lot has applied for a rather large loan with our agency. His plans are to develop a full-scale cattle ranch on property he inherited from you in the Jordan Valley near Sodom. It is our custom before making our final decision to pursue an investigation of the potential borrower’s background to determine the advisability of granting a loan. What we are asking for is a character reference from you regarding Lot. He has given us your name. An immediate reply would be most appreciated.
Very truly yours,
Oaks of Mamre Savings and Loan Agency, Gomorrah
Another intriguing situation. Abraham would be faced with additional pressure in that it was a family member who was in question. What would the Patriarch have done? Would he have hedged … said only nice things … all the while being fully aware of Lot’s irresponsible and short-sighted lifestyle (Genesis 13:11-13)? No, I doubt it. Even though a much-respected friend of God, Abraham would be required by the sheer facts of his firsthand observations to say it straight, regardless.
How about this one?
3 February AD 97
Our church is giving serious consideration to asking a successful layman in our congregation if he is willing to be a candidate for our board of elders. He has recently moved from Ephesus to our new community here in Perga Estates along the Pamphylian coastline. We understand that you have worked alongside Mr. Diotrephes for several years, thus qualifying you to inform us of your opinion of him. We as a young church are in great need of strong, mature leadership, and he seems perfectly fitted for the role. All of us have been quite impressed with his knowledge of the Scriptures and his prior years of leadership in the Ephesian Evangelical Bible Assembly. Would you please respond and hopefully confirm our decision to pursue Mr. Diotrephes? Your reply will be held in strictest confidence. Thank you.
Shalom en Christos,
Chairman, Board of Elders
Once again, honesty is on the line. From John’s former experience with Diotrephes, he was only too aware of the man’s savage style. Check out 3 John 1:9-10 if that sounds too strong. But time had passed. Would “the beloved apostle” simply let bygones be bygones or would he honestly mention the trail of grief that man had left in his wake? I suggest that John would have reported the inescapable and undeniable facts.
The next time you are asked to complete a letter of recommendation, a character reference, or simply answer a few pointed questions about someone, remember these imaginary cases. There’s no need to dig up and parade every mistake from someone’s past, but neither do we help a company or a church by ignoring character weaknesses or a faulty track record. Not idle gossip, mind you, but facts you are able to verify and document, if necessary.
Being a loving Christian doesn’t excuse us from reporting the hard thing. The river of love must be kept within its banks. Truth on one side, discernment on the other. I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day!!! http://dlvr.it/79JbHM
