We know we should pray, and we do pray at certain times. But we need to pray more. Prayer should be an important part of our everyday lives. Communion with our Heavenly Father in prayer should be a part of the fabric of our way of living.In I Thessalonians 5:17 encourages us to do so.

As Christians, we are more fortunate than we know to have people who love us. In Gods family, we are blessed to be surrounded with brothers and sisters who will not only try to help us, but who will attempt to do it in the very best way possible. In Proverbs 27:5 and 6 a true friend is one who help us see and overcome our faults are a blessing.

There is an inherent attractiveness to the truth, and if we practice God’s truth, others will be drawn to its goodness. If we serve others in the strength that God supplies , those who are served will be moved by love and gratitude to glorify God.( Matthew 5:14-16 ).

Sometimes a thing may be both right and easy, but often the right thing is not easy, and at such times a choice has to be made. When difficult choices arise, we need to be people who have disciplined our wills to do as we ought to. Trusting the Lord and what He tells us to do is the best way. ( Genesis 22: 1-14 ).

In Hebrews 10:23-25 being a Christian is not a status only to be enjoyed. It is a work to be done. Some of this work is done individually, but some of it is done collectively with our brothers and sisters. The local church is where Christians worship and work together. Let us encourage one another today.

Every day one is awed by a sun set or a sun rise. Unless we take God seriously not even the most powerful evidence for God can convict us. With all of creation there had to be a creator and such as with a design to a designer. In Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God. I don’t know of or have met an Artist that has painted such a beautiful picture yet of a daily sunset or sunrise. I can only take a picture.

In Proverbs 3:9-10 another mark of wisdom is generosity. Putting the Lord first is a must if we want His blessings. The world is all about me first and that would include money, time and talent. Generosity is giving beyond what is required. Giving a tithe is a tenth of our income. An offering is anything above that. What joy can we have being a servant to others without complaining. The Lord can’t bless us unless we are one hundred percent open to Him. In Corinthians 8:9 Jesus gave His life so we can have eternal life. What a wonderful […]

In Proverbs 3:7-8 Spiritually we need to take care of ourselves just as physically . Doctors tell us that heathy bones need bone marrow. Bone marrow produces white blood cells that fight infection. Red blood cells carry oxygen and platelets help stop bleeding this also is produced in the marrow. Leukemia is a cancer of the blood or bone marrow that destroys its purpose. Fearing the Lord will protect us from our selves and from the evil one.

In Proverbs 3:5 we can easily trust people, objects and even our own feelings. This is leaning on our own understanding that is easy to gravitate too. Trusting in the Lord as the Israelites did by putting away their idols allowed God to start working in their lives. (Judges 10:10-18). Pray for wisdom that the Lord my show us our idols and trust Him with our whole being to glorify Him.

Making Trouble

In Proverbs 6:12-15 the trouble maker is the opposite of a peacemaker.( Matthew 5:9). The trouble maker always feels the need to protest and complain rather than overlooking the slightest wrong ( Proverbs 19:11 ). They also do not present the other side fairly. Do we have that type of Spirit or do we know one who is like that ? Pray for wisdom done in love and truth to confront ourselves and others.
