Tuesday's Dose - 9th February 2016

His Delay Does Not Mean His Denial

Today's Scripture

“I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps” - (Jeremiah 10:23).

Thoughts for Today

One of the most common questions asked by believers is: “How can I know the will of God?”

We all struggle at times with knowing how to discern God’s will. It seems so complicated that we allow ourselves to get bogged down with making decisions. “Should I go on this trip?” “Do I take this promotion?” “Should I get married, and if so, whom should I marry?” “Is this the right career for me?” “Is this ministry where God wants me to be?”

So how do we discern the will of God for our lives? By studying and obeying His Word. The Bible has the answers we need to live godly lives. While we may not find the specific answer to what we are asking, we will find godly principles to guide every area of our lives. When we study the Bible, we learn more about who God is and what He desires of those who walk with Him.

We may endeavor to live in obedience to the Word of God and still not know which way to go or what to decide. The next time you are faced with a decision, ask yourself, “Is my choice consistent with the Word of God?” To answer this question correctly, you must spend quality time in prayer and the study of God’s Word each day.

From this day forward, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in every decision you face. Don’t hesitate to request the wisdom of prayerful counsel from mature and godly people. Expect and wait for God’s answer with patience. You may even doubt His answer. Just remember: His delay does not mean His denial.

We should seek to know God’s will because we find joy in doing the will of our Father, not because we are afraid of displeasing Him or doing the wrong thing. Our lives belong to the Lord, and our destinies are in His hands. Trust Him. Obey His commands. He will guide you in His will.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for allowing me to come to You with confidence in Christ to discover Your will for my life. Please show me the way to go and help me to be faithful on the journey. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.

Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name’ - Sunday's Dose - 7th February 2016

Sunday's Dose - 7th February 2016

Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name


Today's Scripture

“O Lord God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds you” - (Psalm 89:8).

Thoughts for Today

Imagine that you have been granted an audience with the king. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for—the chance to bring your requests before his majesty. The great doors open, and you are standing before the throne. In awe and reverence, you first address the king. It would be improper to just begin asking for your needs.

Jesus instructed His disciples, “This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name’” (Matthew 6:9).

The dictionary defines hallow as “to make or set apart as holy.” God is holy. He is sovereign and omniscient. He is the King of kings, the Creator of the universe. When we place our faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, He becomes our heavenly Father. As such, we have the honor and the privilege of being able to come to Him in prayer.

It is important that we know the character of God, and honor and revere Him in our prayers, actions, and thoughts. God’s character is pure, holy, flawless, loving, compassionate, righteous, just, merciful, kind, long-suffering, honest, true, dependable, faithful, and understanding.

The more we know about God, the more we grow in fellowship with Him. This carries over into our prayers. Placing Him first and foremost in our minds keeps our focus on Him instead of on our needs and desires.

However, Jesus did not intend for our prayers to become ritualistic. Nor does He tell us how to pray. But by beginning with God’s name, we are reminded that we are coming before Almighty God. As children of God, we have been given free access to the throne room of the King of kings. We can address the King as our Father. There is no greater honor!

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father God, 
Thank You for inviting me into Your presence. I praise You as King of kings and Lord of lords and also thank You for being my Father. There is no one like You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

Citizen of God's Kingdom - Friday's Dose - 5th February 2016

Friday's Dose - 5th February 2016

Citizen of God's Kingdom

Today's Scripture

"The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil" - (1 Peter 3:12).

Thoughts for Today

There are two kingdoms—the kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world. When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are adopted into the Kingdom of God.

Being a citizen of a country means you have special privileges. These vary from country to country. However, as a citizen of God's Kingdom, we become members of the royal family. We are joint heirs with Christ. We have access to the throne of God. We have personal fellowship with the King of kings. We are His beloved children.

In order to become a citizen of a country other than the one in which you are born, you must meet certain requirements. The kingdom of God requires its citizens to accept the reign of a wise and loving King. It means acknowledging Christ as our Lord and Savior. It means being obedient to the Word of God. It requires our saying, "Lord, not my will, but Yours be done."

Human nature is selfish. What we think we need is foremost in our actions and prayers. Prayer that revolves around our own plans, desires, and needs, however, can be contrary to God's Word.

When we surrender our lives to Christ and submit ourselves to Him, we are placing our will in submission to the Lord's. Thus we begin to pray, "Lord, reign in my life, dominate my thoughts, show me Your will."

Within each of us rages the war between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world. With Christ we have the victory. Knowing this, press on, armed with the confidence that God hears us and will answer our prayers.

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
I thank You for making a way for me to pass from the kingdom of this world into the Kingdom of God. Thank You for the victory I always have in Christ. I pray I will be bold and courageous always in You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, 
Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.

Intimate Relationship with Jesus - Thursday's Dose - 4th February 2016

Thursday's Dose - 4th February 2016

Intimate Relationship with Jesus

Today's Scripture

“No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.” - John 15:15 NASB.

Thoughts for Today

To Thomas à Kempis, Jesus was not just a person from history or the founder of a religion. He was his Friend.

In his book, The Imitation of Christ, Kempis wrote about the intimate relationship he had developed with Jesus and how often he talked with the Lord. It was his burden that others enjoy the same relationship, realizing how wonderful it was to know Him personally and fellowship with Him intimately.

Kempis asked, “What can the world offer you, without Jesus? To be without Jesus is hell most grievous; to be with Jesus is to know the sweetness of Heaven.”

To Kempis, knowing Jesus was the greatest reward in life: “Whoever finds Jesus, finds a rich treasure, and a good above every good. He who loses Jesus loses much indeed; and more than the whole world. Poorest of all men is he who lives without Jesus, and richest of all is he who stands in favor with Jesus.”

In our time, many people talk about Jesus. Many have read about Him. But how many are experiencing an intimate relationship with Him? Few realize that Jesus actually wants to be their Friend and share a personal relationship that will transform their lives.

Today, ask yourself if Jesus is real to you. Do you think of Him merely as a person from history? Or is He your best Friend? How often do you talk with Him? How much time do you devote to your relationship with Him?

Learn what transformed the life of Thomas à Kempis. Spend time with Jesus. Read His words. Talk with Him. Listen to His voice. Seek His presence. Commit your needs to Him. Fellowship with Him. He loves you and wants to be your dearest Friend.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Thank You that You came to die for my sins. I want to know You more intimately. Show me Your ways. I commit my life to You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Overwhelming Victory - Wednesday's Dose - 3rd February 2016

Wednesday's Dose - 3rd February 2016

Overwhelming Victory


Today's Scripture

"Despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us." - Romans 8:37 NLT .

Thoughts for Today

Some time ago, I had a mysterious rash on my legs that baffled me and my doctors. Over a period of months, we worked together to try to discover the cause and the cure. I sought the Lord in earnest prayer the whole time, trusting Him to heal me. Even so, my symptoms grew worse and worse, and I began to lose heart. One day, as I wept and poured out my heart to the Lord, I sensed His voice saying to me, "Believe Me for the victory." I dug into God's Word and found some powerful Scriptures on the subject of victory, and I began to declare them day and night. My hope soared, and I was able to stand in faith for the healing that eventually came.

I've discovered that when our circumstances are so alarming or discouraging that it's hard for us to pray or trust God, we can believe Him for victory, and begin thanking Him for it by faith. We serve a God who is victory-minded. You don't have to spend very much time in the Scriptures to discover that victory is the Lord's will for His children in every situation and circumstance. First Corinthians 15:57 (NASB) says, "Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." This was the first declaration of faith that I began to confess many times a day as I believed God for my healing. Another was, "Thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ." (2 Corinthians 2:14) Notice the word, "always," in this verse. This is the Lord's assurance that no matter how our situation looks, He is willing and able to make a way for us where there seems to be none.

It's important for us to cooperate with God for the victory by giving our
battles over to Him. When I had worn myself out trying to receive my healing that time, it finally dawned on me that I was trying to win the battle in my own strength. I was constantly thinking and talking about my health problems, and trying to figure out what to do about them. I said I was trusting God, but my actions proved otherwise. I finally went to the Lord and told Him--"I'm giving this battle over to You, Lord, and I'm asking You to fight it for me, and to win it on my behalf." Then I began thanking Him for the victory in advance. It made all the difference. I was able to get on with my life, and to walk in the peace and joy that are my inheritance in Christ, all the while knowing that God was working on my problem. The Bible says: "We have the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles for us!" (2 Chronicles 32:8 NLT) Whenever we let God do the fighting, we simply can't lose.

No matter what kind of difficulty you are facing right now, rest assured that victory is the Lord's will for you. May this precious promise from His Word encourage your heart today: "Cheer up, don't be afraid. For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will give you victory!" (Zephaniah 3:17 TLB)

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Farther, 
Make me victory-minded like You. In every situation I face, show me what I need to do to cooperate with You for the victory. Remind me that if I try to fight my own battles, I'll end up weary, worn, and defeated. Thank You that no matter how my situation looks,
overwhelming victory is mine in Christ! (Romans 8:37 NLT). Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
