The Word of God

All of us long to hear a good word -
a word of comfort, a word of encouragement,
a word of love.
We bloom in the environment of positive words,
while harsh words cause us to shrivel.
Sometimes we say we are tired of words, when in fact
we are tired of empty words, of broken words.
We long for a life-giving word that will not fail.


 

FROM THE BOOK

God is not a man, that he should lie. He is not a human, that he should change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?
Number 23:19, page 172

The word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are.
Hebrews 4:12, page 1210

The grass withers, and the flowers fade beneath the breath of the Lord. And so it is with people. The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.
Isaiah 40:7-8, page 713


 

GOD'S PROMISE

Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks.
Matthew 7:7-8, page 937


 

ACTION POINT

Maybe you're not sure about God and the Bible, but you've already taken the first step. So for the next twenty days, tell God you're here and that you're ready for whatever he shows you in The Book.

Success or Failure?

THE POWER OF HABIT

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things you do you might as well turn over to me,
And I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.
I am easily managed; you must merely be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done,
And after a few lessons I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great individuals
And, alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great I have made great
Those who are failures I have made failures.
I am not a machine,
Though I work with all the precision of a machine
Plus the intelligence of a human being.
You may run me for profit or run me for ruin;
It makes no difference to me.
Take me, train me, be firm with me,
And I will put the world at your feet
Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Who am I?

I am habit!

Doing What’s Right

Everyone who is a child of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world-our faith.

~1John 5:4~


 

You get impatient with your own life trying to master a habit or control a sin and in your frustration begin to wonder where the power of God is. Be patient. God is using today's difficulties to strengthen you for tomorrow. He is equipping you. The God who makes things grow will help you bear fruit. Dwell on the fact that God lives within you. Think about the power that gives you life. The realization that God is dwelling within you may change the places you want to go and the things you want to do today.

Do what is right this week, whatever it is, whatever comes down the path, whatever problems and dilemmas you face-just do what's right. Maybe no one else is doing what's right, but you do what's right. You be honest. You take a stand. You be true. After all, regardless of what you do, God does what is right: he saves you with His grace.


 

Walking with the Savior

Devotion taken from Grace for the Moment

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

Please Be Patient with Me.

Please Be Patient with Me


When you don't feel My presence, don't feel you have done something wrong.
Why are you feeling as though you are not going forward in your walk with Me?
Those thoughts are not from Me, let them go. The enemy wants you to think that.
He wants you to doubt you ever heard My voice. Know that I am allowing you this time to rest in Me
while I prepare your body for the next mission. Don't worry that you aren't kept busy all the time.
You must know that you are with Me and I am with you. The life that you are living is being smiled upon.
Take this time to pray with Me, to worship me, to learn of Me, to come and sit at My feet.
Please be patient with me


While you wait in silence, or what you think is silence, is My chance to give you new life.
Some things take time for Me to show my children. Some things My children won't be afraid of.
If I gave you what you are asking for on your time, you wouldn't be ready to receive it.
Remember, all things work together for the good of those who love  Me,
and are called according to My purpose. I know that you love Me,
and you know that I called you, so Please be patient with Me.


Please, don't call our quiet time together wasted time. I don't waste one second.
If you will be patient I will turn all your reversals into rehearsals for my Glory.
Rest in this and be patient. Use this time to meditate with Me.
What you consider as a move backwards is necessary in My process.
I am controlling all of your time.
I see all your moves; I know all your thoughts, I know all your ways.
For I know the plans that I have for you, plans to prosper you
and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Please be patient with Me.


Remember how you trusted Me in the past to work in you?
You were so pleased with what we accomplished, please trust Me now.
You've come to far, don't doubt Me now. Don't worry, I haven't broken one promise yet.
And stop thinking that I don't need you. Please, tell Me why do you think that?
Things haven't change. I haven't changed. I cannot change.
Please be patient with Me, I will bring to pass all that I have promised.

For I am God, I changeth not.

Godless Living

Their thinking became useless. Their foolish minds were filled with darkness. They said they were wise, but they became fools. Romans 1:21-22


 

Since the hedonist (Definition:
1.the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the highest good. 2. Devotion to pleasure and self-gratification as a way of life.) has never seen the hand who made the universe, he or she assumes there is no life beyond the here and now. He or She believes there is no truth beyond this room. No purpose beyond his own pleasure. No divine factor. He has no concern for the eternal…

The hedonist says, "Who cares? I may be bad, but so what? What I do is my business." He's more concerned about satisfying his passions than in knowing the Father. His life is so desperate for pleasure that he has no time or room for God.

Is he right? Is it OK to spend our days thumbing our noses at God and living it up?

Paul says, "Absolutely not!"

According to Romans 1, we lose more than stained-glass windows when we dismiss God. We lose our standard, our purpose, and our worship.

The Devotion above was taken from Grace for the Moment.


 

Me:

I wanted to encourage those who would come across this page and read this devotion to not allow anyone or anything to cause you to lose your Godly standards, your God-given purpose, and your worship unto God.

In this world we live in today, it is so easy to be caught up in self-gratifications. But we must press on even harder to LOVE the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We must love God more than our wants, needs, and desires. We must love Him even more that we love our family. God wants our total and complete devotion to him without reservations.
