It is Friday again, Praise the Lord! I wish everyone a pleasant weekend. Take God along where ever you go. Let's pray for everyone traveling on snowy, icy roads.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the week. This is the day that the Lord has made, we should rejoice and be glad in it!
Psalm 103:1-5 NIV
Praise the LORD, O my soul;all my inmost being,
praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I feel so fortunate to have the Almighty God in my life. He freely gave me salvation and upholds me with His strength.
Isaiah 45:22-24 NIV
"Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God,and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear. They will say of me,'In the Lord alone are righteousness and strength.'" All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame.

The Spirit put it in my heart to share verses from Matthew today. Jesus spoke these words Himself. I personally struggle to live this lesson.
Matthew 5:39 NIV
But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Matthew 5:44-46 NIV
But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?...

Smile! It is Friday and we have the strength of the name Jesus Christ. I hope you all enjoy God's blessings this weekend. Seek Him with all your heart.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

At this time of year, our minds turn towards the great sacrifice Jesus made for us and His resurrection.
We have a mission given to us by Jesus,after the resurrection, in the last words of Matthew. There are no small roles in this mission as long as you are working for the Lord. He will always be with you on that path.
When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age."

Is greed eating away at your insides? Don't let greed steal your joy. Find happiness in your daily blessings.
Deuteronomy 24:19-21 NIV
When you are harvesting your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the alien, the fatherless and the widow, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. When you beat the olives from your trees, do not go over the branches a second time. Leave what remains for the alien, the fatherless and the widow. When you harvest the grapes in your vineyard, do not go over the vines again. Leave what remains for the alien, the fatherless and the widow.

Normally at Christmas time we put a lot of emphasis on good will and kindness towards one another. Let's take a moment to think about it at Easter as well.
Ephesians 4:29-32 NIV
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
#19 Mar 20, 2008
The Bible sure has a lot to say about love and kindness, so let's keep it in our hearts and minds while we focus this week on the Cross and our great Savior, Jesus Christ.
Romans 12:9-13 NIV
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

TGIGF! Thank God it's GOOD FRIDAY! This is the day we celebrate the love our Savior showed us when He gave himself as a sacrifice. But we don't mourn the loss because our Savior is RISEN! Have a great and blessed Easter weekend!
I just wanted to share one of the more familiar Bible verses on love in honor of the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Many times when we attend a funeral we hear the 23rd Psalm. It is a comforting Psalm for those loved ones in pain. Maybe it can be a daily comfort for every day life as well. So here it is.
Psalm 23 NIV
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Let's stick with the Psalms. Psalm 100 is for givng thanks. I think the words are quite familiar. Many of the lines have made it into hymns. This Psalm is such a powerful blessing for my heart!
Psalm 100 NIV:
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Happy Wednesday! Why? Because we have the Lord to thank and praise for the day He has made. Psalm 118 is a bit long to reprint the whole thing, so here are a few of its verses.
Psalm 118 NIV:
Verse 1 : Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Verses 6-8 : The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? The Lord is with me; he is my helper. I will look in triumph on my enemies. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
Verses 14-16 : The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous; "The Lord's right hand has done mighty things! The Lord's right hand is lifted high; the Lord's right hand has done mighty things!"
Verses 22-24 : The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Verses 28-29 : You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 111 gives us even more reson to praise our Lord. My mind in particular has been meditating and smiling because of one of the last lines --The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom...
Psalm 111 NIV
Praise the Lord. I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate. He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever. He has shown his people the power of his works, giving them the lands of other nations. The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness. He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever- holy and awesome is his name. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
The Bible does not include exclamation marks in this Psalm but I will add some now... WOW!!!

It is Friday again. I wish everyone a blessed weekend. Take the Lord with you in everything you do. Solomon wrote this Psalm and it contains some advice on laboring with God's help.
Psalm 127 NIV
Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat - for he grants sleep to those he loves.
Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Let's start the week with a definition. Intercede: To plead on the behalf of another
Romans chapter 8 gives us examples of the Holy Spirit and Jesus interceding for believers.
Romans 8:26-27 NIV
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
Romans 8:33-35 NIV
Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died- more than that, who was raised to life- is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
Paul concluded the chapter with these inspiring words in verses 38 and 39:
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Thank you God for giving us a light to show us the way through the darkness of this world. Thank you Jesus for giving the blood that purifies us from all sin.
1 John 1:5-10 NIV
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him their is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.
#28 Apr 2, 2008
Have you ever wondered why God is acting so slowly in your life. Let's take a look at some words of Peter.
2 Peter 3:8-9 NIV
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
#29 Apr 3, 2008
The world offers us nothing to help us in our walk with Christ. Keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 3:1-10 NIV
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
