Tuesday

Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! 

Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.

But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God—the free life!—even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action. (James 1:22)

Lord, help me to be as you created me to be. ❤️

Monday

It pleases God more when we demonstrate godliness and justice than when we merely offer him a sacrifice. (Pro 21:3)

How much easier is it to throw something into the offering that to offer to help the ‘sour faced’ lady with her Christmas …? Or to stand up for someone at work rather than keeping quiet and rocking the boat?

Jesus ‘clearly my tells us: “I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’ (Mat 25:40) ❤️

Sunday

GOD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “How should I know? Am I his babysitter?” (Gen 4:9)

😢

My beloved friends, if you see a believer who is overtaken with a fault, may the one who overflows with the Spirit seek to restore him. 

Win him over with gentle words, which will open his heart to you and will keep you from exalting yourself over him.

Love empowers us to fulfill the law of the Anointed One as we carry each other’s troubles. (Gal 6:1) ❤️

Saturday

(GOD speaking) “Take a good look at my servant. I’m backing him to the hilt. He’s the one I chose, and I couldn’t be more pleased with him. 

I’ve bathed him with my Spirit, my life. He’ll set everything right among the nations. He won’t call attention to what he does with loud speeches or gaudy parades. He won’t brush aside the bruised and the hurt and he won’t disregard the small and insignificant, but he’ll steadily and firmly set things right. 

He won’t tire out and quit. He won’t be stopped until he’s finished his work—to set things right on earth. Far-flung ocean islands wait expectantly for his teaching.” (Isa 42:1)

He came ‘to set things right on Earth!’ And He won’t tire out and quit!’ ❤️

Friday

(GOD speaking) “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” (2 Cor 12:9)

Bottom line – “Don’t worry, don’t fret and panic. Simply recognise that I know you can’t do this alone. I will help you to deal with this because whatever comes against you, comes against Me. I will never leave you, I am with and IN you. I Love you and won’t (can’t) let you down.” ❤️

Thursday

Jesus sat down and taught the people from the boat. When he had finished, he said to Peter, “Now row out to deep water to cast your nets and you will have a great catch.” 

“Master,” Peter replied, “we’ve just come back from fishing all night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you insist, we’ll go out again and let down our nets because of your word.” 

When they pulled up their nets, they were shocked to see a huge catch of fish, so much that their nets were ready to burst! (Luke 5:4)

I’ve learned (and many times the hard way), that logic cannot compete with GOD’s Wisdom. I might be facing bleak hospital reports, or bad bank news, or … but whatever we face, we should always make time to ask Him, “Lord, this is what ‘they’ are saying, what do YOU say about it?” 

Get ready to let down your nets, Child of the Living GOD. ❤️

Wednesday

And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we also know that we have obtained the requests we ask of him. (1 John 5:15)

Have you ever heard someone pray and thought, “Wow! They REALLY know GOD! I bet they get their prayers answered all the time!”

Hmmm … have you ever seen a young family living around their children? Tell me, doesn’t the sulky teenager’s requests get answered just as much as the toddler – or even the cooing baby? 

Child of the Living GOD, listen to your heart and KNOW that your Heavenly Father loves and hears EVERYTHING you say. ❤️
