A Wednesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Gooooooooood Morning Everyone! My wife and I are going on vacation and will return by Nov 3rd, so this will be our last post until we return. We thank each of you for your loving responses and comments.

"Holy Father, Loving God, help us to learn that what really matters in this life is not what we have, but what we have become. Let our focus and commitment be set on Jesus our Lord, and on what is ahead, because that is where out true treasures will be found. When you call us home, let us not go back to take what is in the house or out in the field, lest we be left behind. It is a blessing not to center our attention on what we possess, but rather on what we are and to whom we belong. Help us to learn this truth and not be caught in inordinate concerns about things. Father, we give you all praises, glory and honor! This we pray in Jesus' name, Amen!"


God has set us free from contamination and corruption, from death and chains, and what else? In Ps 118:5, we learn that God has set us free from anguish. God calls us to turn to Christ Jesus, to trust Him and to know the security that comes from trusting him. He takes our distress and blesses us with His peace. The Lord is truly on our side! What can man do to us? He who is in us is GREATER than he who is in this world. Now, this is something to think about! May each of you be blessed with this truth until we meet again in November. In His Love, Vic.

A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Greetings Everyone! We greet you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Thank you for your responses and comments. Praise God!

"Eternal Father, glorious God, You are beautiful beyond description, too marvelous for words, too wonderful for comprehension, like nothing we have ever seen or heard. Who can grasp your infinite wisdom, who can fathom the depth of your love? You are beautiful beyond description, majesty enthroned above. And we stand, we stand in awe of You! We stand, we stand in awe of You! Holy God, our God, to whom all praise is due, we bow in awe of You. We sing praises to your name, for your name is great and greatly to be praised. We give glory to your name, for your name is great and greatly to be praised. You are beautiful beyond description and we bow in awe of You. May our prayer rise to you as fragrance of our love and devotion. This we pray in Jesus' precious name, Amen!"


In Ps 116:15-18, we learn that the death of God's saints is precious in his sight. He loosen our bonds and set us free. we then offer up our sacrifices of thanksgiving to Him as we call upon His name. God has set us free from the death and chains that comewith sin. He has set us free so we may worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Freely we have receivesd, let us freely give. Something to think about! May each of you receive today the blessings of heaven which our God has in store for you. In His Love, Vic.

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, October 18, 2010

Gooooood Morning Everyone! We pray that evveryone had a blessed weekend.....we did! Our church raised 15, 985 cans of meat for Impact in Houston to help feed the hungry and the poor. Praise God!

"Heavenly Father, Eternal God, help us to guard our ways, lest we sin with our tongue; help us to police our words and speech. Make us aware of our words with everybody. You have blessed us with the gift of speech: a tool with which to communicate; a method of expressions, the ability to solve problems and avoid conflicts; a gift to be used for doing good and not evil. Help us to remove anger, bitterness, slander, murmuring and gossip from our speech. Guide our tongue to edify You and encourage others. Enable our speech to make us pure in heart, to honor You daily in our lives. This we pray and ask this morning in Jesus' precious name, Amen!"


What happens when we sin? We contaminate ourselves and corrupt our lives because we choose to listen to Satan and not to God (Gen 3:4). We lie and we blame others for our sins (Gen 3:12). It causes us to hide from God rsther than seek God (Gen 3:8). Our nakedness shames us and we try to cover up our sinful nature (Gen 3:7). We are explelled from the presence of God and excluded from the tree of life (G2n 3:22-24). Where we once were free, we are now enslaved to sin, guilty and condemned.....Lost forever, unless we are made free again by Christ Jesus, by his word, by his truth, by his death, and by his blood. He paid the debt for our sins so we can be free again to follow Him, to wealk the way he has established for us in order that we may eat of the tree of life. That's something to think about! May each of you be blessed today with God's truth and blessings.
In His Love, Vic.

A Saturday Morning Prayer!

Saturday, October 16, 2010

"Heavenly Father, Awesome God, may we always be encouraged to look deeper and gaze upon your beauty, the works of thy hands, and your majestic being. May we be amazed at recognizing you our God who provides all our needs, our God who keeps all of his promises. our God who displays his vast wisdom and order through his word and his works. Without You and your direction, life would be a maze of trials, error and despair. But we have a living God who leads us through the valleys of life to bring us to greater glory. Help us Father, to give You fully our attention daily. May we always be amazed by your GREATNESS. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen!"

A Friday Morning Prayer and Message!

Friday, October 15, 2010

Gooooooooooood Morning Everyone! Yesterday was a blessed day! we held a home bible study in our home and invited people in our community and three of them came and studied with us. Praise God!

"Eternal Father, Holy God, we praise you for your loving kindness, for your wonderful grace, and for your tender mercy, for you are such a GREAT GOD and yet you are a God also of the little things in our life. Teach us Father, to praise you with our whole heart; teach us to tell others of your marvelous works; teach us to be glad and rejoice in you; teach us to sing praises to your awesome name. Help us not to forget to look for you in all the little details in our life. Help us to remember that your presence is everywhere, if we will take the time to notice. Open our eyes and hearts that we may see your majesty and unspeakable glory. This we pray and ask in Jesus' name, Amen!"


When was the first time God told man he was free to do something? If you answered, "In the Garden", you are correct. In Gen 2:16-17 God told man, "Of every tree in the garden thou may FREELY eat; but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shall not eat of it; for in the day thou eastest thereof thou shall die." God created man a free condition, but man broke God's one and only law and empowered Satan into his life. So it is with us today, but God has provided a way through our Lord, Jesus Christ, to free us from the law of sin. What does it mean to be FREE? It means to be be free from contamination and corruption. God's aim has always been and will always be to protect us, if we allow him to do it. To Be Continued. Have a safe weekend and we will continue our study on Monday. God Bless, Vic.
