Thursday

… Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!

So consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls, so that you won’t become worn down and cave in under life’s pressures. (Heb 12:2)

Even though we think they lived as savages, many disparate people (red Indians, aborigines), have a higher moral code than many who consider themselves ‘civilised’ today. These ‘savages’ didn’t oppose their own souls in order to grab as much as they could – and in the process lose their very selves.

Lord Jesus, help me to loosen my grip on the pathetic baubles offered in this life and keep my grip on You! X

Monday

He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be:

Amazing Counselor,

Strong God,

Eternal Father,

Prince of Wholeness.

His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings. (Isa 9:6)

He is The wholeness for those of us who have been broken by some of the toxic life-choices we’ve made.

An amazing Counselor, the only strong GOD and our eternal Father.

Bless You Lord. X

Thursday

Strength! Courage! (Jos 1:18)

His Presence is with us, so GOD really doesn’t need many words to encourage us.

After all, the battle (YOUR BATTLE), is His anyway.

So whatever you’re facing today, don’t give in to man’s best offers: (medical, financial, legal, blah, blah), just keep smiling nicely at the people just doing their job, and trust GOD to turn up and help. X

Wednesday

Having determined our destiny ahead of time, he called us to himself and transferred his perfect righteousness to everyone he called.

And those who possess his perfect righteousness he co-glorified with his Son!

So, what does all this mean?

If God has determined to stand with us, tell me, who then could ever stand against us? (Rom 8:30)

There’s so much fabulous beauty in these Words of Scripture Father. Thank You. X

Monday

Words he breathed and worlds were birthed. “Let there be,” and there it was— Springing forth the moment he spoke. No sooner said than done! (Psa 33:9)

Many will try and tell you that our Heavenly Father doesn’t speak to us anymore …! What does He say about it?

“Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches.” (Rev 2:29)

Speak Lord, I’m listening. X

Saturday

So when Jesus the Messiah came into the world he said, “Since your ultimate desire was not another animal sacrifice, you have clothed me with a body that I might offer myself instead!

Multiple burnt offerings and sin-offerings cannot satisfy your justice. So I said to you, ‘God— I will be the One to go and do your will, to fulfill all that is written of me in your Word!’ ” (Heb 10:5)

This is love: He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins.

Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life!” (1 John 4:10) X

Thursday

So when Jesus landed he had a huge crowd waiting for him.

Seeing so many people, his heart was deeply moved with compassion toward them, so he healed all the sick who were in the crowd. (Mat 14:14)

No matter WHAT your mind tell’s you about how ‘undeserving’ you are – GOD LOVES YOU and keep telling yourself this: Jesus is the same as he ever was towards me, yesterday, today and forever. X
