Thursday

The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. (Heb 11:1)

If you can accept that our Heavenly Father loves you, then you can begin to accept that His aim is to give you all that makes life worth living too.

“I do believe, Lord; help my little faith!” (Mark 9:24) ❤️

Tuesday

Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry—but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge.

And don’t stay angry. Don’t go to bed angry. Don’t give the Devil that kind of foothold in your life. (Eph 4:26)

Whether you’re subject to, or even a participant in some horrible ‘discussions’ today, remember that anger doesn’t fuel the Spirit of GOD within you, and without Him we’re on a hiding to nothing.

So before you ‘vent’, use the old cliche, “What Would Jesus Do?” You’ll find it’s much better in these situations. ❤️

Listen! A virgin will be pregnant, she will give birth to a Son, and he will be known as “Emmanuel,” which means in Hebrew, “God became one of us.” (Mat 1:23)

To those of us that have accepted Jesus into our hearts this will be extremely profound.

The GOD who became one of us didn’t need violence to justify his means, or prove his nature. He didn’t debate with politicos, because he knew what really motivated them. He scorned those who were bound by religion as much as much as those that thought they held power.

In fact, his ONE COMMAND – that we love one another proves that he was everything that WE can be!

Thank You Heavenly Father, for showing us the Way, through Jesus. ❤️

… 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
