A Monday Prayer and Message!

Monday, June 13, 2011

Goooooooooooooooooood Morning Everyone. We trust everyone had a wonderful weekend! We welcome all new members to team! Let's remember to share these prayers and messages with others, and / or invite them to join the team. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER: "Holy Father, Loving God! You are the True God who fills us with joy and peace until they overflow, as we learn to trust You more and more each day. Help us to resist the things which would deplete our soul or minimize our strength to follow Jesus. Fill us instead with Your Hope, Peace and Joy so that it overflows from us unto others. We praise You for Who You are, our God, and thank You for Your great love. Let Your Holy Spirit pour new life into us today, fill us afresh with Your Spirit and Word, and take away all darkness and hopelessness from us. This we pray in the blesssed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. As we continue to look at, "Substitute Good Habits for Bad Ones", in order to help us change our lives according to God's will, we read on in Eph 5:3 thru 21:
a. Replace sexual sins, filthiness, foolish tak and jestering, and idols by giving thanks and walking in the light (Vs 3-4).
b. Those who do these things (paragraph a. above) will not inherit the kingdom of Christ and God (Vs 5).
c. Let no man deceive you less the wrath of God comes upon you (Vs 6).
d. Be not a partaker of these things (Vs 7).
e. Walk not in darkness but walk in the light: for the light exposes all wickedness (Vs 8-11).
f. Be wise and walk carefully, redeeming yourtime, and making the most of every opportunity to expose evil ways (Vs 12-16).
g. Understand what the will of God is, and do it (Vs 17; Eph 4:22-24).
h. Be not filled with wine but be filled with the Spiirit (Vs 18).
i. Speak to one another in psalms and hymns; sing and make melody in your hearts to the Lord giving thanks (Vs 19-20).
j. Submit yourselves one to another in the fear (respect) of God (Vs 21).
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! How can we be filled to the fullness of the Spirit if we give Him only partial control of our lives and not full control. This is why Jesus said in Matt 7:21, "Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of the Father which is in heaven". Are you doing FULLY the will of the Father? Or just partially? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God shine His light upon us, expose all darkness in us, so He can fill us overflowing with His Spirit and Grace. In His Love, Mercy and Grace, Vic.

A Sunday Spiritual Hymn!

Sunday, June 12, 2011

A Blessed Morning to Everyone! This is a fairly new hymn, with the words and music created by Ken Young in 1993. It is a beautiful hymn that was inspired by Ps89:1, " I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever; with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations".

TITLE: FAITHFUL LOVE

1. Faithful love flowing down from the thorn covered crown,
Makes me whole, saves my soul, washes whiter than snow.
Faithful love calms each fear, reaches down, dries each tear;
Holds my hand when I can't stand on my own.
(REFRAIN)

2. Faithful love is a friend just when hope seems to end,
Welcome face, sweet embrace, tender touch filled with grace.
Faithful love, endless power, living flame, Spiirit's fire;
Burning bright in the night, guiding my way.
(REFRAIN)

REFRAIN:
Faithful love from above came to earth to show the Father's love.
And I'll never be the same, for I've seen faithful love face to face,
And Jesus is His name.

God Bless Everyone, Vic.

A Saturday Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Aloha Everyone! Today's hymn is fairly new. The words and the music was created by Beaker in 1991, and the music was arranged again by Ken Young in 1993. The inspiration for this lovely hymn came from Ps 63:1, "O God, thou art my God, early will I seek thee,...."

TITLE: STEP BY STEP

1. O God, You are my God, and I will ever praise You.
I will seek You in the morning,
And I will learn to walk in Your ways,
And step by step You'll lead me,
And I will follow You all of my days.

DS:
And I will follow You all of my days,
And I will follow You all of my days,
And step by step You'll lead me,
And I will follow You all of my days.

God Bless Everyone and Have A GREAT WEEKEND, Vic.

A Friday Prayer and Message!

Friday, June 10, 2011

Gooooooooooooood Morning Everyone! Thank you for all your wonderful responses and comments. Give God all the glory and praise.

PRAYER: "Loving and Merciful Father, Creator of everthing in this universe. Teach us to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. Help us to be the person of powerful prayers. Teach us to be prayer warriors. We do not want to be a person that prays sporadically, but rather one who is filled with joy and hope and prays without ceasing.
Show us how to grow in our faith. Enable us to reach up to You with loving and grateful hearts as we apply Your word to our life. Enable us to always come before You with sincere hearts. This we pray in the blessed name of Jesus who died for us, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. In STEP 9 "Substituting Good habits For Bad Ones", we have a practical guideleine for changing our life to God's will.
a. Eph 4:22-24, commanded us to "put off the old man, put on the new man, by renewing the spirit of our mind".
b. Eph 4:25 thru 5:2, gives us five sinful habits we are to discard and replace.
1. Replace lying with truth by speaking the truth in love.
2. Replace sinful anger with brief indigation and deny the Devil an opportunity.
3. Replace theft with hard work so we can have the means to meet needs.
4. Replace foul language with gracious speech in order to build up others.
5. Replace resentment and wrath with kindness and forgiveness since we have been forgiven.
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! Not only does the scripture tell us "WHAT" we must do to change, but it provides also the "HOW annd WHY". This is just a start in the right direction, and God is helping us to change. Which of the five is still a stumbling block for you? To Be Continued Monday!

May God help us to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer and grateful for His help. In His Love, Grace and Mercy, Vic.

A Thursday Prayer and Message!

Thursday, June 09, 2011

A Glorious Morning To Everyone! Swimming is such a great workout! Everyone ought to try it. Praise God!

PRAYER: " Awesome Father, Loving God! We thank You for the Spirit that helps us in our weaknesses: that helps us to pray when we can't find the right words to express our feelings and concerns. We are grateful that the Holy Spirit intercedes for us in accordance with Your will. He knows Your will, He knows our needs, and He know what to pray. Guide us and teach us through Your Spirit when we have exhausted all words. Enable us to communicate our deepest thoughts, feelings, fears and doubts, so that our prayers may reach the awesome heart of our loving God. These things we ask in the blessed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. Let's now move on to STEP #8 - Diligently Practice What Is Right!
a. All the knowledge in the world is of no value unless we apply that knowledge to our life.
b. All the good attitudes in the world will not get the job done unless we follow up with actions.
c. 1 Cor 15:58 instructs as follows:
1. Be ye steadfast.
2. Be ye unmovable.
3. Be always abounding in the work of the Lord.
4. WHY? Because our labor in the Lord is never in vain.
d. James 1:22-25 commands us to be DOERS of the word, and not just hearers only. WHY? Because "Hearers only" deceive themselves.
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! We change only when we compel ourselves to do what is right. And God tells us what is right. Then we need to repeat it over and over again until it becomes "second nature" to us. God doesn't promise us that the change will be easy, but does promise us that it is possible. How diligent are you to obey His word and to do what it says? To Be Conntinued Tomorrow.

May God bless us as we become true "DOERS" of the Word, and not just hearers only.
In His Love, Vic.
