SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY    Proverbs 5:21
21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.
 
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Thankful manFather, the words written in 1707 by Isaac Watts come to mind especially as we focus on the cross, “Alas! And did my Savior bleed and did my Sov’reign die? Would He devote that sacred head for such a worm as I?” Watts wasn’t a wretched slave trader, murderer or a swindler. He grew up in church as a preacher’s son, yet he was well aware of his worthless worm-like state in contrast to Christ, the mighty Maker who died, for man the creature’s sin. Drops of grief can never repay the debt of love we owe for our complete forgiveness, abundant life and eternal inheritance provided for us through the blood sacrifice of Christ Jesus our Saviour. But we can respond by saying, “Here, Lord, I give myself away, ’tis all that I can do.” And, amazingly, You joyfully accept our humble response and equip us with all we need to navigate our journey here below that leads us onward to our eternal home. We thank You for Jesus in whose name we pray. Amen.

PRAYER FOR TODAY

Thankful man
Father, we are grateful for the boundaries You place throughout Scripture that are solely for our protection. Often it’s to protect us from the devil who lurks waiting for the opportunity to pounce and other times it’s to protect us from our own vain vices that can be equally destructive. Wise us up so that we don’t resent or rebel against that which is for our own eternal good. Rather help us to see that You are an all-wise, all-knowing God who looks after us and sets boundaries so that we don’t lose sight of our spiritual heritage here on earth which will pave the way for our eternal inheritance in heaven. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

PRAYER FOR TODAY
Thankful manFather, we offer thanks to You that we do know and we have heard that the Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. Yet there are those who have never heard this message and there are still others who have exchanged the truth of God for the lie, choosing to worship and serve created things rather than the Creator which makes their thinking futile and their foolish hearts darkened. In ourselves we are nothing but as we walk in the light of Your inspired Holy Word we live in truth and walk in righteousness. So we give praise to You,the Creator, who is forever blessed. Amen.

PRAYER FOR TODAY

Thankful man
Father, I pray for a discerning spirit to help me recognize truth from falsehood. Help me to know when others are lying and help me also to recognize the lies I tell myself. You always speak the truth and You declare that which is right from that which is wrong.  When the world describes a lifestyle or belief system to be good when You declare it to be evil, help me to stand firm upon Your holy truths as I faithfully read them in the Scriptures. Give me bold conviction to stand firm for truth even when it seems as though no one stands with me. The “truths” as purported by this world shift like the changing winds but Your Truth stands for all eternity!  I stand firm as I tighten the belt of truth about me. And I protect my heart and mind with the shield of righteousness through Christ Jesus my Lord in whose name I pray. Amen.

    Write them on your heart as if on a tablet.
Then you will be respected
    And will please both God and people.
 
 
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Thankful manFather, Romans 1:21 indicates that those who knew You neither glorified nor gave thanks to You which led to their futile and foolish thinking.  It eventually caused the light of Your Word to be veiled and ineffective in their lives as darkness crept in and covered the radiant light of Your truth.  They sought honor for themselves and lived for self-glory.  Anything good in us is but a reflection of the Spirit of Christ who resides within, so we will glory only in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ though mocked and ridiculed by the world.  We are unashamedly children of God whose depth of wisdom comes not from the understanding of the world but the understanding of Your Word. May its truth always be our source of light in the darkened age in which we live.  In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Wednesday March 19, 2014 thought for the day




HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
1-God does not want to follow us, he wants to lead us-
2-Refusing to wait on God is sheer arrogance and pride-
3-There is no justification for disobeying God-
4-God's discipline is meant to benefit us because He loves us-
5-Not everything negative that happens to you is necessarily a Satan attack-
 
STRANGE THOUGHT-English is a crazy language-"Why is it that when the stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are out they are invisible?"
 
I'VE LEARNED-You cannot kill time without injuring eternity-
 
DID YOU KNOW-A car is stolen every 30 seconds in America-
 
5 THINGS I WANT TO KNOW
1-What is there known about Ishmael as an adult?
2-Did Abraham and Sarah ever reconcile with Hagar and Ishmael?
3-Why did God find it necessary to test Abraham's faith by calling him to offer Isaac as a sacrifice?
4-Did Abraham question God's request of him to make a human sacrifice of his son as the surrounding heathen nations did with their children?
5-Why did God say to Abraham, "take your only son Isaac?"  Why did God say "only"?
 
BIBLE TRIVIA-Who asked God the question?-"When I come unto the children of Israel and shall say unto them, the God of your fathers hath sent me unto you, and they shall say as to me, What is his name?, what shall I say to them?"
Answer for today-Moses   Exodus 3:13
 
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY    Psalm 104:1-4
104   My whole being, praise the Lord.
    Lord my God, you are very great.
   You are clothed with glory and majesty;
2 you wear light like a robe.
   You stretch out the skies like a tent.
3 You build your room above the clouds.
   You make the clouds your chariot,
    And you ride on the wings of the wind.
4 You make the winds your messengers,
    And flames of fire are your servants.
 
 
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Thankful manFather, You have made Your truth known to both the righteous and unrighteous. Your Personhood is evident to all living creatures, though many turn away, ignore, or devise a false theology veiling or hiding the truth. They resist the truth of who You are by their sinful lifestyle and their eternal destiny is doomed. Your invisible attributes, eternal power and divine nature has been visible since the time of creation, and we are grateful for Your revelation to all who seek the truth. It is a lamp unto our feet and a light for our earthly path. Amen.
