Friday's Dose - 4th September 2015

God’s Instructional Toolset

Today's Scripture

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn” - (Psalm 37:5-6).

Thoughts for Today

If we are living by the Spirit, then we will know how to respond to life when it turns upside down. We won’t give up when things get rough and we feel disillusioned. Instead, we will remain faithful to the course God has set before us.

When David faced a tremendous threat from his enemies, he cried out to God and the Lord answered him.

For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock (Psalm 27:5).

If David had abandoned all self-control, his enemies would have overthrown him. Instead, he waited on God’s deliverance. He knew that the Lord was his Rock and his Redeemer.

The fruit of the Spirit is God’s instructional toolset given to us so we will know how to face life’s problems and sorrows correctly. Paul reminds us to “keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other” (Galatians 5:25-26).

The fruit of the Spirit teaches us how to stay alert to Satan’s schemes. Pride is one of his favorite snares. Oswald Chambers writes, “Always remain alert to the fact that where one man has gone back is exactly where anyone may go back.”

When we yield to pride, we set ourselves up for a fall. But if we practice the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—then the enemy will not be able to set up strongholds in our lives.

Therefore, be alert and submit your life to Christ. No matter what this life may hand you, God has given you all that you need to handle it in His strength.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father,teach me how to rely on Your strength instead of my own. Protect me from pride and lead me in the way of humility so that I may honor You and be a blessing to others. Let there be no strongholds in my life for the enemy to hold onto. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.

Be Committed Spending Time in Prayer - Thursday's Dose - 3rd September 2015

Thursday's Dose - 3rd September 2015

Be Committed Spending Time in Prayer

Today's Scripture

“Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?” - (Proverbs 6:27).

Thoughts for Today

“The safest road to hell,” wrote C.S. Lewis, “is the gradual one—the gentle slope, one that is soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”

Many Christians do not believe they can or will ever drift away from God. They see their devotion as being solid. However, compromise and a lack of spiritual discipline quickly open the door to temptation and sin.

Once we accept Christ as our Savior, the enemy knows his work of eternal destruction has been thwarted. However, he is relentless in his effort to work havoc in the lives of God’s people. Therefore, he goes to work in a different way. He knows that he cannot have our souls, but he remains committed to destroying our lives.

One of his greatest weapons against the body of Christ is pride. He seeks to tell us we are complete and worthy apart from the Lord. He wants us to feel good about our talents and abilities—so much so that we begin to make decisions without considering God’s purpose and plan. Before we know it, we have believed a lie and departed from our first love, which is the love of Christ.

There is nothing wrong with knowing God has gifted you and that He is the One who is using your abilities. The story, however, changes when you begin to take life into your own hands without regard to the Savior’s will.

Temptation by itself is not sin, but if left unchecked, it quickly leads to sin and broken fellowship with the Lord. You can say no to the subtle sin of compromise by asking the Lord to keep you close to Himself. Be committed to spending time in prayer with Him each day.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times I have compromised my love for You. Thank You for Your forgiveness and love. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Exercise More Kindness - Wednesday's Dose - 2nd September 2015

Wednesday's Dose - 2nd September 2015

Exercise More Kindness

Today's Scripture

“I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised . . . yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses” - (Isaiah 63:7).

Thoughts for Today

Kindness is a characteristic of God. Out of His kindness He made a covenant with the nation of Israel. And out of kindness, He kept His side of this covenant while they rebelled and disobeyed.

It is out of kindness that Jesus left the splendor of heaven to become a man. It is out of kindness that He hung on a cross to die and pay the wages of our sin. Out of eternal love and kindness, He offers to us His precious gift of salvation.

But God’s kindness did not stop at the cross. It continues today in the lives of those who accept His Son as their Savior. The more we allow Him to work in us, the more His fruit becomes evident to those whose lives we touch each day.

As we continue to live and grow spiritually, there are several things we need to know about kindness. Sometimes, kindness requires putting ourselves in another person’s place. We need to view others as Christ does.

There are those of us who continually show kindness to others and yet seem to be incapable of showing kindness to ourselves. We allow past failures and sins to prevent us from growing. However, God’s forgiveness is complete. When we pray and seek His forgiveness, He gives it. Therefore, we must learn to forgive others and ourselves, too.

Kindness gives birth to kindness. Love extended leads to more love. As you begin to show kindness to others, you will be set free from feelings of self-condemnation. You will find yourself being empowered by the Holy Spirit to exercise more kindness more often.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for the kindness You have shown to me and will continue to grant me as I journey with You. As I grow in showing kindness to others, reveal to me how to show kindness to myself through forgiveness for past sins. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.

Protect Your Spiritual Wall - Monday's Dose - 31st August 2015

Monday's Dose - 31st August 2015

Protect Your Spiritual Wall

Today's Scripture

"Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control" - (Proverbs 25:28).

Thoughts for Today

When Nehemiah first heard of Jerusalem's destruction, he wept and was emotionally shaken. He wrote, "For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven" (Nehemiah 1:4). Nehemiah suddenly realized the walls around the city of Jerusalem were in ruins. Through all of this, he had mistakenly thought they had remained in place. But when the news arrived of their destruction, he became even more burdened.

In Old Testament times, walls around a city were a symbol of strength and security. Without these, a town would be left defenseless, vulnerable, and open to attack. This was the plight of Jerusalem. It was a city without protection against even wild animals. It had lost its identity and was on the verge of being totally reduced to a mound of rubble.

A person who has an undisciplined spirit or no self-control is like a city without walls. He or she is open to enemy attack at any given moment. When we fail to exercise a spirit of self-control, the wild animals of jealousy, rage, frustration, gossip, bearing a false witness, and more can enter our lives easily and unopposed.

A lack of self-control is Satan's way of preparing us for destruction. However, you do not have to fall victim to the enemy's schemes. You have all you need to stand firm in your faith. God is the One who strengthens you. When you fall in battle and cry out to Him, He rushes to your side and lifts you up.

If you have allowed sin to come into your life, then your spiritual walls of protection are down. However, God will repair them when you turn to Him, confess your sin, and seek His forgiveness. When you do, He will restore His walls of holy protection around your life.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, Please forgive me for allowing sin to creep into my life, compromising my relationship with You and putting me at risk for spiritual defeat. I confess this sin, ask You to restore to me the joy of my salvation and to grant me a willing spirit. Thank you for hearing and answering me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.

The Genuine Sense of Peace - Sunday's Dose - 30th August 2015

Sunday's Dose - 30th August 2015

The Genuine Sense of Peace
Today's Scripture

“The God of peace will be with you” - (Philippians 4:9).

Thoughts for Today

Martha and Mary were sisters, and they both loved and wanted to please the Lord. However, they were very different in their actions. Martha was preoccupied with cooking and housecleaning, while Mary sought to spend time with Jesus. The Bible tells us that she sat at His feet, listening to all He said.

We need to be aware of the danger of anything that crowds the Lord out of our lives. Jesus chided Martha:

You are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her, (Luke 10:41-42).

In the end, the only thing that matters or has meaning is God’s Word in our lives. Martha was anxious about things that pertain to this life. She did not have a genuine sense of peace—one that comes as a result of spending time with the Savior.

Anxiety is the result of preoccupation with the things in life that do not have eternal value. It is a signal that we are seeking to derive security or peace from something other than the Lord.

C.S. Lewis writes: “God designed the human machine to run on Himself. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about Him.”

We may be sincerely doing what we think will please the Lord—but all the while, we may be stressing over unnecessary events, feelings and emotions. Like Martha, we need to recognize what is important. When God is the center of our lives, our priorities will be focused on Him, and then He will fill us with His peace, assurance and hope.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, Pour Your peace into my heart and mind as I release the cares of this world and focus on 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.
