A Wednesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Greetings Everyone! Thank you, Thank you for your wonderful comments and responses to yesterday's prayer and message.

" Heavenly Father, God of all Creation, give us understanding, that we may observe your Law and keep it with all our heart. Teach us by the Word and thy Spirit. Guide us to walk in thy path; incline our hearts to receive and follow your Word; turn our eyes upon Jesus so we may follow His example; establish thy Word in us and through us. Father, thank you for loving us so much. Thank you for your Word that guides us; thank you for directing our lives to be all that you want us to be. Help us to be open to your will, to long for your love and your Law, for they are the path that leads us to eternal blessings from You. This we pray in the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

As we read Eph 1:3-7, we have to ask, "How do we receive the freedom God has given us?" The scripture says we receive this freedom through Christ Jesus and in Christ Jesus. But how does this happen? It happens by faith and obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by our adoption as sons and daughters of God in Christ Jesus. How are we adopted?. The Gospel is the power of God unto our salvation ( Rom 1:16). We are adopted bt faith and obedience to the Gospel of our Lord, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our sins according to the riches of His grace. Are you being blessed today? All you need to do is hear the word of truth, believe it, obey it, repent, confess that Jesus is Lord, be baptized for the remission of your sins, and follow Jesus' example in this life. May God bless each of you today with the blessings from the heavenly realm. In His Love, Vic.

A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Aloha Everyone! Thank you for your responsesd ans comments on yesterday's prayer and message....Praise the Lord!

" Loving Father, Merciful God, we praise you with all our heart and being. Touch our heart's today with laughter, tears and wonders that we may know the pleasure of totally losing ourselves in celebration in you our God. Show us how to celebrate in healthy indulgences, with healthy laughter, joy and tears; to know the incredible power of those things which are good for us. Let us experience the healthy emotions that bring gladness and happiness to our very souls. Let us exult You, savor your presence, and be filled with Your awe. Make our soul, our hearts and minds to rejoice in You with Spiritual Health. This we pray and ask in the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

Where can we find this freedom of which we speak? 1 Cor 3:17 tells us we can find this freedom in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and in His Spirit, and nowhere else.
In the Lord and in His Spirit, we are freed from the Old Covenant, and free to indulge in the New Covenant. We are freed from differences which separate people and undermine relationships. In the Lord and in His Spirit, we are united as one, and we are all heirs of the promises of God (Gal 3:28-29). We are freed from the yoke of slavery of sin, and free to follow the righteousness of Christ our Lord ( Gal 5:1). Do you know and enjoy this freedom? Now that's somethinbg to think about! May God bless each of you today with Healthy Indulgences. In His Love, Vic.

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, November 08, 2010

Goooooooooood Morning Everyone! What a wonderful weekend! Hope you had one too!

"Heavenly Father, glorious God, forgive us of our selfish ways, our choices that dishonor you, our worldliness, when we fail to carry our cross and follow Jesus, when scriptures make us uncomfortable. We know that you have compassion on those who fear you. We are indeed a mixed bag. You created us out of the dust, taught us to be good, but we give in to tempataion so easy. You know us inside and out. Please remember we are made of mud, a lowly thing, something we wish to get rid of but we can't. It is because of this that you have redeemed us in Christ. We are thankful for your grace, your mercy and your forgiveness. Help us to strive towards perfection in Christ Jesus, our perfect example. This we ask and pray in Jesus' name, Amen!"

What else can we be freed from? Read Rom 3:24. We can be freed from eternal death. Instead of eternal death, God blessed us with eternal life through the redemption that comes only through Jesus Christ. We learn about the power of death in Rom 6:7-10, 18. Sin claims us in death. Christ died for us and paid the price demanded by sin and death so we may be free. We are set free from sin and death to choose God as our Master and enjoy the gift of etrnal life. What sets us free? Rom 8:2, 18-21 teaches us that it is "the Spirit of Life". It sets us free from the "Law of Sin", our worst enemy. It frees us from suffering, frustration and decay, and frees us to hope and glory. That's how much God loves us! That's something worthwhile thinking about! May heaven's blessing be upon each and everyone of you today. In His Love, Vic.

A Saturday Morning Prayer and Message!

Saturday, November 06, 2010

Aloha Everyone! Another beautiful, warm and cool day here. Managed to get in 8 miles.

"Heavenly Father, God of all creation, how thrilling, yet sobering, to understand that you care for us as your personal sheep. You spend long hours with each one of us daily; you know us by name, by character, by strengths and weaknesses.
You know which one will respond to your voice and follow You. You know which one is independent, will wander away and get lost. You know our physical and spiritual needs. You know which one will come to You for an ear rubbing and which one will pull away. You faithfully care for us, love us, rescue us, restore us, and provide for us. Help us to delight and submit to your care, for we are the sheep of your hands, and we praise you as our Loving Shepherd. This we pray in Jesus' name, Amen!"

In setting us free from so many things, Jesus frees us also from lies and ignorance. Read John 8:32. The Word of God is Truth (John 17:17). That truth is what sets us free: Free to believe in Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Living God (John 8:30); Free to continue in His Word, and to be His disciples indeed (John 8:31); Free from the power of sin, not that we are blameless, but washed in the His blood, cleansed from all sins (John 8:32-36). We are freed by Jesus because only those who abide in Him are freed. WOW! Now that's something to think about! God Bless each of you today with his TRUTH!
In his love, Vic.

A Friday Morning Prayer and Message!

Friday, November 05, 2010

Gooooooooooood Morning Everyone! Thank you, Thank you, for your responses and comments. It's good to be back and doing the work the Lord has given me.

"Heavenly Father, Holy God, how great is the love you have lavished upon us, that we may be called your children. You honor us by calling us your children and we thank you. Help us Father, never to dishonor you or your great love. Teach us to call upon you in our hour of need and to praise you always. We know you want is to be righteous and faithful, and not to turn from you in rebellion. Give us the strength to not be carried away by temptations and our desires for worldly things, but to seek first and always, your kingdom and your righteousness. Thank you for Jesus who died to take away our sins. Forgive us our sins. Enable us to give glory and honor to you and your name, by helping us following your commandments. This we pray and ask in Jesus' name, Amen!"

I'm amazed at all the ways we are freed in Jesus! Aren't You? Here is another way in which we are freed. Read Matt 10:8. What are we freed from? We are freed from selfishness. We are freed to do good works for others, so they may see our light shine, and praise our God in heaven. Not for our glory, but for His glory. Why should we esteem others more than ourselves? Because, "Freely we have receive, let us freely give". We are to be guided by Jesus' example in our actions towards other. Now! That is something to think about! May God bless each of you today with his Great Love. In His Love, Vic.
