How can I handle spiritual trials?

8/31/10How can I handle spiritual trials? The Lord hears His people when they call to Him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. Psalm34:17-19. Lord I handle my spiritual trials by asking You for help. You are the only One that can rescue me each and every time. You don't take away my broken heart but You are close to me through it to help me learn what I must from it. You do save me when my spirit is crushed and I can't withstand any more; You remove the weight from my shoulders that was never mine to bear. You are so faithful because I see Your hand rescuing each and every time from danger, poverty, death, divorce, and depression and so many more. Help me to comfort those in trouble, be there for those in need, and pass on the hope I have in You.

How can I praise the Lord?

8/27/10How can I praise the Lord? Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise You! I will praise You as long as I live, lifting up my hands to You in prayer. You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise You with songs of joy. Psalm 63:3-5. I can praise You because Your love is there for me when I have failed everyone and myself. I can praise You for the life I have that You thought was so precious You died for. I can praise You in my prayers because You are always there when I feel no one cares or understands. I can praise You because You have taken me through having much and having little and have always met my needs and even my wants. I can praise You with my songs that worship You as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I can praise You because that what I was created to do and nothing in life brings me more joy.

How can I have liberty in Christ?

8/26/10How can I have liberty in Christ? There is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. Romans 8:1-2. Lord I am so grateful that there is no condemnation in You because there is so much in the world. I belong to You, You are my Daddy, You are the lover of my soul. Free me, Lord, with Your life-giving Spirit. Free me to have joy in my heart despite desperate circumstances. Free me to replace my thoughts of all worry and all fear with complete faith in the hope of heaven. Free me as a wife to have my words be few and my ability to listen strong. Free me to serve in WHAT I CAN DO TO PLEASE YOU not WHAT I MUST DO PLEASE OTHERS. Desperate circumstances have mercy new every morning. Worry won't add a single moment to my life and fear is not of the Lord. I want to be a worthy wife to crown Jimmy and not a disgraceful wife that's like a cancer. Lord, You didn't come to be served but to serve and give Your life; I want to follow You.

8/25/10 PLEASE PRAY FOR JIMMY AND I - OUR FIRST DAY WITHOUT CONSISTENT INCOME SINCE OUT CHILDREN WERE TODDLERS: How can I be Christ centered?

Lord as we assemble resumes, complete applications, and present ourselves for work opportunities; Jimmy and I want to represent You in all we do. We give You thanks for where You have us right now because it only by the grace of God that we can give you thanks for all You have done, are doing, and will do. You, Lord, gave me what I had and You have taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord. Job 1:21.

I can control my tongue by not allowing bitter thoughts to grow rage in my heart producing harsh words that slander others and cause me to have evil behavior.

Lord You held Your tongue when You stood before authority and You asked they be forgiven. Lord give me courage to stand today knowing I am forgiven and help me to see those I speak to through Your eyes.

8/23/10 PLEASE PRAY FOR MY JOB THAT MIGHT BE TERMINATED THIS WEEK LEADING TO NEW PATHS FOR OUR FAMILY – How can I overcome pride? Greed causes fighting, trusting the Lord leads to prosperity. Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe. Proverbs 28:25-26. Lord I trust You to lead our family to prosperity, not monetary, but everlasting prosperity of a life lived with a hope of heaven. My family knows and loves You; You have always met our financial needs. Today I search for Your wisdom as I don't know what this week holds but You do and I believe with all my being that all things work together for the good for those that love You and are called for Your purpose. Help me overcome pride by trusting Your wisdom.

How do I deal with lust?

8/20/10 How do I deal with lust? The temptation in your life is no different than what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so you can endure. 1Corinthians10:13. Thank you for reminding me that I am not alone. You have always been faithful to see me through all things. Even though at times I feel like I am at my breaking point, I can remember all I do have and it helps me to stand. Lord I am battling wrong thoughts that will lead to wrong words and be manifested in wrong actions. I can only endure knowing that You hold all this in Your hand and nothing has come upon me that hasn't been sifted through Your fingers and I know that I know that I know You have a plan and a purpose for it.

How can I overcome worldliness?

8/19/10. How can I overcome worldliness? For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father but from the world. 1 John 1:16. Help me Lord overcome worldliness by craving the spiritual pleasure of a relationship with You above all else, by craving for everything I can't see, my confident hope in heaven, and by humbly coming before You knowing that all I have achieved is through Your strength and all I have is by Your gracious provision, apart from You I can do nothing but I can do all through You who gives me strength.

Fathers give love & mothers reflect love. The father relationship effects all relationships. Hurting people hurt people. Lord fill the hole in my soul with you.

How can I recognize evil?

18Aug10How can I recognize evil? A good tree produces good fruit; a bad tree produces bad fruit. Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions. Matthew 7:17, 20. Lord people see me by my actions before they hear my words that stem from the thoughts I have that begin with the seeds I choose to sow within my soul. When I sow in a seed of love, I think how can I love, I speak words in love and I act in love. When I sow in a seed of bitterness, I think of all done to me to make me bitter, I speak bitterly toward others and act in bitterness. Lord, those around me identify me by my actions; forgive me for when those actions are bad fruit. I desire to live good fruit, give good fruit, to produce good fruit. Help me recognize the evil around me and not shun in disdain or fear but embrace in love because you loved the unlovable and You do not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind in You.

How can I overcome Satan?

17Aug10How can I overcome Satan? So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Come close to God and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. James 4:7-8. I can overcome Satan when I humble me; my pride says I can do all in my own strength, which is why Satan fell. I can overcome Satan when I resist him in the name of Jesus; he flees because the only way to resist him is in the power of Christ's blood. I can overcome Satan by coming close to You, my God, because Your light dispels his darkness in me. I can overcome Satan when I wash my hands of the sins of who I was as a sinner saved by grace and who I am now clean as a child of God. I can overcome Satan when I purify my heart, look honestly at myself, embrace what is of You God and disregard what is of the world. Lord help me humbly resist Satan by coming close to You with clean hands and a pure heart.

How can I overcome a worldly mind?

16Aug10.How can I overcome a worldly mind? Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into new a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2. Lord thank you for providing me a way to be in the world but not of the world through You. Give me wisdom and strength to change the way I think. Lord, You change my thoughts when I saturate myself in Your word, in prayer and in fellowship. Continue to teach me Your will for me in my life which is good for me, pleasing to You, and perfect to meet the needs of those around me.

How can I build my faith?

13Aug10How can I build my faith? Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Hebrews11:1. I can build my faith by being confident in You, my Lord. I can build my faith by having hope in You, my Lord. But time walking with You has given me the confident hope that all You have said yesterday, are saying to me today, and will say to me tomorrow will actually happen. I can't see eternity with You but it will happen. I can't see my salvation but I am. I can't see Your hand leading and guiding my family through good times and bad but You are. I am assured of these through time in Your word, in prayer, and in fellowship with others that are so in love with You. May my assurance in You be contagious today.

How can I abide in Christ?

12Aug10How can I abide in Christ? Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5. You Lord are my vine the life source for who I am. I am the branch that extends from You to reach those You have called for me to. I remain in You by making You the focus of my time, my tithe and my talent. By You being the focus You help me best use my time, You increase the blessing of my tithe, and You bless me by allowing me to use my talent. My fruit is time spent with You, tithe given to You, talent used for You. When I lose focus and am apart from You, my time is stressed, my tithe is lost, my talent is wasted. As I am in You today, use me how You see best.

What is the Holy Spirit to me?

8/11/10What is the Holy Spirit to me? But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere- in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts1:8. Lord I receive Your Holy Spirit. He not only has come upon me but I know He moves through me each day, guiding my thoughts, words, and actions. I desire to be Your witness, not my own. I want to tell people about You not only through my words but my actions also. Help me be a witness in Jerusalem to me my home, in Judea to me my friends and family, in Samaria to me those that are difficult to love, and to the ends of the earth for me those that I reach but may never know through those I do know and through me the Holy Spirit speaks to. Thank you for Your Spirit that is my strength.

How can I know the power of God’s word?

8/10/10How can I know the power of God's word? For the Word of the Lord is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12. I know the Word of the Lord is alive because as I read it each time the same words can say different things to me at different times in my life. I know the Word of the Lord is powerful because in a time of fear I can say His name and have peace to sleep, in anger I can speak His Word and find thankfulness, in sorrow I can sing His word and have joy anew. It divides between where my soul is going and how my spirit within me is living through me. As I pull apart Your word each day, I learn more and more about what I truly think and what I should truly desire. Align me with You.

What is the blood of Jesus to me?

8/9/10What is the blood of Jesus to me? For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered Himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins. Hebrews9:14.The blood of Jesus for me is the picture of the Trinity - the sacrifice God needed to forgive us, the sacrifice Christ made to open heaven to us, the sacrifice that made the Spirit available for us. Forgive me when I feel put out by the sacrifices I have to make. I have eternal power to do all I need to today. I offer my day to You as the only sacrifice that's mine to give. Help me to forgive others the sins You have already forgiven them. Your blood Lord is undeserved forgiveness, help me to live that.

How can I know the sufficiency of the Lord?

8/6/10How can I know the sufficiency of Jesus? So I can say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper, so I have no fear. What can mere man do to me?" Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews13:6, 8. I am sure that You Lord are my help when I feel alone. My faith is enough to remove my fear. No one can change that I am a child of God. You are the same God that changed my life 19 years ago, the same God that's mercy is new this and every morning, and the same God that I will spend eternity with. Thank You that even though I have thoughts that make me feel bad, You are what I need to think on to feel my way into happiness once more.

How can I know I am born again?

8/5/10How can I know that I am born again? For it is by believing in your heart you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans10:10. Lord I believe in my heart that You are the Christ the Son of God. This makes me right with You dead to who I was without You born again in who I am with You. Help me use every opportunity to confess who You are and what You have done for me. The thieves on the crosses crucified beside You; one denied, ridiculed, and died eternally, one believed, confessed, and lived eternally with You. He was born again then. Help me to live born again for as long as I am.

Jesus will see me through when I put my trust in Him. God loves sinners. I admit I have sinned. I believe in Jesus. I confess I need a Savior for eternity.
I will trust in Jesus and nobody else. My help comes from the Lord. Freedom in Jesus has no strings attached. Creation is not an accident, we have a creator.

What’s God’s plan of salvation?

8/3/10What's God's plan of salvation? For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans6:23. Lord what is given in return for my offenses and faults is death eternally. Yet in Your grace You give the free gift of eternal life to me when I admit You are my God, believe You sent Your Son to die for my sins and be risen from the dead to conquer death, and confess I need Your Son to save me. Lord I still fail and others still fail me. Lord I accept Your grace to start over and help me show that grace to others even if they don't deserve it.

What can I do to please God?

8/2/10What can I do to please God? You are a chosen people. You are a royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of His darkness into His wonderful light. 1Peter2:9. You foreknew and predestined me before the foundation of the world yet You have given me free will to choose You and You have chosen me. It is a mystery that I, in my small mind, can't understand because who can fully understand the awesomeness God? I am a royal priest as Your child to spread Your word to all. You have called me to choose this day as for me and my house to be a holy nation one home at a time. I am Your possession that You bought with the price of the sacrifice of Your Son. Lord Your goodness is not sitting with me in the darkness of my circumstance but to call me out into the light of a life lived for You.
