Before I …

Proverbs 3: 6 (HCSB) “think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.”

Before I do anything these days I feel it is of great importance to sit down and take a moment and come before the Lord my God.  I want to do something and I need to know whether what I am planning on doing will be in my interest and whether I am in God’s perfect will.

You now the Lord Jesus would pray about everything we see that in Luke chapter 5 verse 6 NIV “Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”  As you think about what it is you want to do today, even the food you want to eat.  Bring it before the Lord, asking Him to guide you.

We have become so good at making our own decisions and we also are so sure of ourselves that we don’t realize that this might be our last day here on earth.  My thinking these days are Deo volente (Latin) for God willing.  Each time I want to do something I pray about it doesn’t matter how small or insignificant it is I am asking God to guide me.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, Lord, please be our guide and show us the way that You have prepared for us.  Give us the necessary wisdom and insight to identify what we should be doing.  Help us to never lose sight of the fact that You are our CEO in life.  We need Your input in our lives in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour we pray.  Amen

What defines you?

Proverbs 23: 7 NIV “for he is the kind of man who is always thinking about the cost.  “Eat and drink,” he says to you, but his heart is not with you.”

Go and stand before a mirror and look at your countenance, what do you see?  When I go to the mirror I see an elderly lady looking back at me.  I see her every morning when she combs her hair and brushes her teeth, so it must be me.  Then, of course, I am a wife, a mother, and stepmother and a grandmother and last but not least a daughter.

Come to think of it, I have many different roles to play in my life.  But have you visited with someone and when in their company you feel a little off.  You just cannot put your finger on it.  They are kind, friendly and look all too good but there is something off about the whole scenario?

We sometimes act just like this person in Proverbs, we are supposed to be children of the Most High God but we treat people with contempt and disregard them.  Why?  I believe when you get to a certain level in your life and you feel that you have made it, you become selfish and don’t really want to share your wealth with others.  But because of etiquette and protocol you need to act in a certain way, you know it because it is expected of you.

Oh my goodness, Lord help us.

Prayer

Lord God, in humble adoration we come before You today, Lord.  Just as we are, daughters of the Most High God, a royal priesthood.  Bought with the blood of Jesus Christ.  Remind us that we Lord, need You in our lives.  That whatever we have is because You gave it to us.  Lord bless each person reading these words today.  In the name of Jesus Christ Amen

Dealing with doubt

Deali

Ephesians 6: 17 NIV “Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

As a Christian, it is imperative that we trust and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ with all our hearts, soul and mind.  The funny thing is that when you are feeling a little sick, or discouraged it becomes difficult.  Then doubt comes into play, the devil will place a thought into your mind and you either accept it or reject is.  This is where the full armor of the Lord God is important.  Be honest we don’t always put the full armor of God on do we?  The past couple of days has been grueling for me personally.  Self-doubt has been plaguing my mind.  To top it off, I actually entertained the devil.  As I meditate and think on the word of God I have come to realize that I am my worst enemy.

You see I have been ill for a couple of days, feeling miserable and not myself.  I am not perky and definitely not a pleasure to be around.  Then I also feel disappointed by a couple of people that I have met in the past year.  But nevertheless, let them be.  The antidote to being so doubtful is actually very simple.  I have to put on the full armor of God.  You see as a person our minds are the battlefield.  You can look at me and not see what I really am going through.  Smoke and mirrors hey.

Well, the devil, today I am coming up against you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and I bind your works.  I place the helmet of salvation over my head and I take the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.  I stand up against you in Jesus Christ of Nazareth name.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, O Lord, just as I am today with all of my fears and doubts please forgive me.  I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth has died and risen again for me.  I declare the blood of Jesus Christ over my life today.  I accept that I am more than a conquer and that I can do all things through Christ Jesus.  I put the whole armor of God on.  I put on the belt of truth around my waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place and with my feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, I take up the shield of faith, with which I can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Taking the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.  In the name of Jesus Christ, I am armored.  Amen

Word fast : stop being ungrateful

Stop being ungrateful

1 Thessalonians 5: 16 – 18

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Are you still rejoicing in the Lord?  Giving thanks in all your circumstances?  Hmm, I do believe we have fallen off the wagon.  Complaining about everything, never really being grateful for what we have.  Some people are so spoilt they have so much and don’t ever say thank you.  It amazes me to watch people that are really well off and are so blessed with so much to see how ungrateful and menacing they have become.

Then I have seen people that don’t know where their next plate of food is going to come from and they are joyful and kind and always so happy.  Always thanking you for the little they receive.

So today I won’t complain because I am really grateful for everything I have.  In everything I will rejoice in the Lord for blessing me with a beautiful day, loads of fun and time to sit in the sun and enjoy peace and quiet.  Thank You, Lord.

Be blessed, you are my blessing!
