A Thursday Morning Prayer and Message!

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Greetings SP Members! Life can be so wonderful when we are in Christ Jesus. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER" " Loving Father, Eternal God! Create in us a pure heart, and a steadfast spirit within us. Do not cast us from Your presence nor take Your Holy Spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of Your salvation and grant us a willing spirit. Sustain us by Your great love. Create in us a clean and right heart before You at all times. Enable us to turn from all temptations and sinful actions. Keep us ever in Your presence and in Your love. This we pray in the name of our Blessed Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To Believe In Jesus Continues! (Mark 5:21-43).
1. Is it possible to be healed by faith only?
a. Faith is definitely need but it is not the only ingredient.
b. Let's examine the events surrounding the woman's healing:
1. She came to Jesus by faith.
2. She did nor say, "If I only believe, I will be healed".
3. What she did say was, "If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole) (Vs28).
4. She demonstrated her faith by an action.
2. James 2:20 warns us, "...faith without works is dead".
a. "Show me you faith without works and I'll show you my faith by my works" (James 2:18).
b. Faith is "Believing that works", both from God and from us.
3. What do you thonk about this? What good is faith if it does not prove the extent of our love and commitment? Does God not love us everyday, even when we are not loveable? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God Bless us today with understanding, mercy and Grace. In His Love, Vic.

    Jesus healed me of fibromyalgia in 2001. I had this disease for many years and it was getting worse the older I got. But, I had the faith that Jesus could and would heal me. I went up for prayer in church several times, sometimes weekly. But I didn't give up after the first time, the fifth time, the twentieth time....I kept asking and reaching out to Jesus, reaching out to touch His garment, His heart, knowing that He could make me whole. He answered my prayer on a Sunday morning in April, 2001. No more pain, no more intense fatigue! Praise God! I know that God still heals and makes us whole.....sometimes you just have to push your way through the "crowd" to get to Jesus!

A Wednesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Goooooooooooooood Morning SP Members! Yesterday, we prepared and served a meal to a family who had lost a love one. We will be preparing and serving another meal this Saturday to another family who also has lost a loved one. Let God be glorified always!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Eternal God! Help us to understand the blessing of confession, when we acknowledge our sins to You and not try to cover up our inquiries. We do not want anything to separate us from You and what You have for us, especiially not our own unconfessed sins. Help us to tear down all walls that stand betwwen You and us, especially those over which we have control. Enable us to acknowlledge our every thought, our every spoken word, and our every deed that is not pleasing in your sight. Reveal to us the truth about ourselves if we are too blind to see it for ourselves. Let us humble ourselves before You as we seek your mercy and forgiveness. This we pray in the blessed name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To Believe In Jesus Continues! (Mark 5:21-43).
1. Vs 28-29 - Can we by faith reach out to Jesus for healing?
a. The woman in our story did. She reached out to Jesus by faith.
b. Will she be healed by faith?
c. Vs 29 says she felt in her body that she had been healed from the plague.
2. Vs 30 - 32 - Is almost a funny scene.
a. Jesus knew immediately that someone had touched him and that virtue (power) had gone out of Him.
b. He turned around with the crowd pressing in around Him and asked, "Who touched my clothes"?
c. His disciples responded, " You see all these people pressing in around You, and You asked, "Who touched me"?
d. And Jesus looked around to see who had done it.
3. What do you think about this? If Jesus can do what man cannot do, than He must be the Christ, the Son of God, and that's Good News for you and me. Faith comes by hearing the Word of Christ, and healing comes from faith in Christ Jesus. Is it possible to be healed by faith only? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May the blessings of heaven be poured out upon each of you today. In His Love, Vic.

A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

A Glorious Morning To All SP Members! Everyday can be a glorious day when we are in Christ Jesus. PRAISE God! Thank God!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Loving God! We are grateful for all the times you have protected us from disaster and harm. We know You are always there for us even when we bring disaster and harm upon ourselves. We are aware of some of these times, and we know there are countless other times when You kept us from harm and we were not aware of it. You protect us not only physically, but spiritually as well. You protect us from those who would destroy our reputation, our hope, our faith and our love for You and for one another. Thank You for protecting us and for keeping Your promises to see us safe and saved. You are an awesome God! This we pray in Jesus' Holy name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge to Believe In Jesus Continues! (Mark 5:21-43).
1. If Jesus can do what man cannot do, than He must be the Christ, the Son of God, and that's Good News for you and me.
a. Vs 29 - Straightway, the problem of blood dried up and she felt she had been healed.
b. WHY? Because she came to Jesus believing.
1. She came to Jesus by faith.
2. She came to Jesus reaching out to Him, not that He had to touch her but that she had to touch Him.
2. What do you think about this? Sometimes we expect Jesus to reach out to us but we are not willing to reach out to Him? Is loving someone a one-sided affair or a two-sided affair? Do we love Jesus as much as He loves us? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God bless us with the understanding that we must reach out to Him, even as he reaches out to us, and that we must love Him as He has loved us. In His Grace and Love, Vic.

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, March 07, 2011

Gooooooooood Morning SP Members! What a blessed weekend! Praise God!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Holy God! We praise You; we praise Your Holy Name for You are a Loving-Awesome God, faithful and merciful. Thank You Father for loving us and caring for us. When we seek You, You give us a song in the night. When we find ourselves in darkness, You enlighten us with Your presence. In our darkest situation, we can lift up a song of praise to our Almighty God. Glory, honor and dominian belongs only to You our God, and we are blessed daily. This we pray in the glorious name of Jesus, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To believe In Jesus Continues! (Mark 5:21-43).
1. Vs 27 - Faith leads us to seek Jesus.
a. When the woman heard about Jesus, she came in the crowd behind him and touched His garment.
b. WHY? Vs 28 - For she said, "If i may touch but his clothes, I shall be made whole".
1. That is pure and trusting faith being demonstrated for us.
2. If Jesus can do what man cannot do, than He must be the Christ, the Son of God, and that's Good News for you and me.
2. What do you thinlk about this? Would you like to be made whole again? The doctor told me when I had Congested Heart Failure, that even with drugs or surgery, it would only get worst, never better. By faith, I reversed Congested Heart failure without drugs or surgery. The process started immediately and it took me six months to make my heart normal again. That was four years ag0. Would you like tobe made whole again? To be continued Tomorrow!

May God help us to understand the magnitude of His Power and His Love. In His Grace, Vic.

    It is God's incomparable power that compels man to bow humbly before the Creator of this great scheme. There is no word to express the dimensions of His power;

His unique essence has so much power that whenever He wills a thing to come into existence, the object addressed will be
"When He wills a certain thing, He commands it 'Be!' and it is"

What an awesome Father we have emoticon

A Sunday Morning Spiiritual Hymn!

Sunday, March 06, 2011

A Blessed Morning SP Members! Here is a old favorite based on Ps 86:9-10 by Stuart K. Hine in 1949: HOW GREAT THOU ART

1. O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder, Consider all the worlds thy hand have made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power thru-out the universe displayed.
(REFRAIN).

2. When thru the woods and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees; When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur, and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze. (REFRAIN).

3. And when I think that God , His Son not sparing, Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in; That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin; (REFRAIN).

4. When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation, And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart! Then I shall bow in humble adoration And there proclaim, my God how great Thou art! (REFRAIN).

REFRAIN: Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee; How great thou art, how great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee; How great thou art, how great Thou art!

Praise God and watch the blessings flow down to you. In His GREAT LOVE, Vic.

    emoticon I love the hymns but am very partial to the older ones and some of the great "negro spirituals". God is such a wonderful GOD, but it doesn't mean I understand how or why things happen in life. I just try to believe and accept each day as it comes and thank HIM for his eternal goodness. Thank you both for sharing these songs of faith today. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    God is truly Great! I love the hymnals there is so much in them. I also love the new songs. Here is a part of Chris August's song Starry Night

I'm giving my life to the only One who makes the moon reflect the sun.
Every starry night, that was His design.
I'm giving my life to the only Son,who was and is and yet to come
Let the praises ring, 'cause He is everything.

He is everything! and praise God that he is including me in his plans!
Thanks for sharing!
