A Wednesday Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

A Glorious Morning To Everyone! How beautiful and refreshing is the rain! Praise God and give Him all the glory.

PRAYER: " Heavenly Father, Most High God! Equip us and arm us for the battle against Your enemies and ours. Clothe us with Your full armor so we may stand against the devil's schemes. Teach us to pray in the Spirit, and to be alert, watching and ready. We have chosen to stand with You , and to wage war against the forces of darkness. Teach us how to maintain our readiness, to understand the depth of Your truth, Your righteousness, and Your battle plan. Arm us with Your Word as we walk with Christ in salvation, in powerful prayers, in the knowledge of Your Word, and unto victory. We rejoice in Your victory and in Your glory. This we pray this morning in Jesus' blessed name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. The Bible continues to teach us about "AVOID TEMPTATIONS".
a. Eph 5:1 says, "Have no fellowsdhip with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them (expose them)".
1. Notice that the works of darkness are alway unfruitful. So why do them?
2. Notice also the duty of believers is to expose the unfriutful works of darkness.
3. Negatively, we are to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness.
4. We are not to indulge in the sins of the unsaved.
5. Positively, we are to expose the unfruitful works of darkness.
6. How do we do this? We bring them to the light and show them for what they really are.
7. WHY? So the unbeliever may see the hideous works of darkness and understand the consequences of such works.
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! We know that sin corrupts. God creates a new creature in us when we put on Christ in baptism. We were once like the unbeliever, having fellowship and doing the unfruitful works of darkness. Christ died for us so He could equip us and arm us against the consequences of that life. He took us out of darkness and brought us into HIs marvelous light (TRUTH), so we may live in the light and not in darkness. But if we put on Christ and continue to live in darness, what would Jesus call us? HYPOCRITE! Are you a HYPOCRITE? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God Bless us today and open our heart, soul and mind so we may understand, believe and live in His LIGHT. In His Grace, Vic.

A Tuesday Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Goooooooooooooooood Morning Everyone! There is rain forecasted for us in the next two days. Praise God!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Providential God! Those who hope in the Lord will go from hopelessness to hopeful. Renew our strength O Lord, for You are not against us, but for us: to provide our every need. Through Your Word and by Your Son who brought us truth and grace, we have a hope for today and the hope of tomorrow. There are many today who have lost all they had, but who have not lost their hope in You. Thank You for being our strength when we are weak. Thank You for guiding us through our troublesome days. We parise You! We praise Your Holy name! This we pary today in the blessed name of Jesus our Lord and Savior, Amen!"

MESSAGR: Following Jesus!
1. Paul teaches us in 2 Cor 6:14-18, how to avoid temptation.
a. Vs 14 - Says, "Be ye not unequally yoked with unbelievers"? WHY? For what fellowship has the righteous with the unrighteous; what fellowship has light with darkness?
b. Vs 15 - And what accord has Christ with worthlessness and wickedness? We have been called to Hloiness, to separate ourselves from this world, because though we are in the world, we are no longer of this world.
c. Vs 16 - And what agreement have we, who are the temple of the Spirit of God, with idods?
d. Vs 17 - God has called us to come out from them, and to be separated so God may receive us.....WHY?
e. Vs 18 - So God can be our Father and we can be His children.
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! How can we be of this world and claim to love God at the same time? NOT POSSIBLE, unless we change and learn to avoid those things which cause us to sin and fall from grace. Therefore, let us be motivated by the fear of the Lord, energized by the love of Christ, exemplified by Jesus' life, and qualified by the hope we have in the Word and promises of God. To Be Continued!

May God Bless us today with edification and exhortation to His Word. In His Love, Vic.

A Monday Prayer and Message!

Monday, June 20, 2011

A Blessed Morning To Everyone! It's a new week and not a do over week; so let's praise our God for His love and grace. Give him all the glory!

PRAYER: "Beloved Father, Awesome God! We pray this morning that the eyes of our heart will be opened to see the Hope to which You have called us; to see Your incomarably great power at work in us, through us and all around us; to see the riches of Your glory and love.
Help us to understand our glorious inheritance. Enable us to comprehend the magnitude of Your power in our life. Take away our unbelief and fill us with a hunger and thirst to seek Your truth and power as it is manifested in our life to Your glory, praise and honor. This we pray in the blessed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. As we continue to look at STEP #10 - AVOID TEMPTATION, we turn to Ps 26, where David said, "Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart", (Vs 2).
2. How was David able to make such a statement? He tells us how in vs 3 thru 7.
a. Vs 3 - He kept God's loving-kindness before his eyes and he walked in God's truth.
b. Vs 4 - He did not sit with idolatrous persons, nor go with hypocrites.
c. Vs 5 - He hated evildoers and had nothing to do with the wicked.
d. Vs 6-7 - He washed his hands in innocency, so he could proclaim with thanksgiving the good news of God's wondrous works.
3. THINK ABOUT THIS! David, who was being accused falsely, declares his avoidance to temptations; he petitions God for deliverance, promised a public acknowledgment (Vs 12) and blesses the Lord. Would you like to learn how to avoid temptations? Look closely at the 9 things David did in the verses above, and them apply them to your life. To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God bless us and help us to pray like David as together we seek our God's loving-kindness and truth. In His Love and Grace, Vic.

A Sunday Spiritual Hymn!

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Wake Up To A Beautiful Sunday Morning Everyone! AH!!!! Today's hymn is a song of gladness and praise. H. J. Zelley created the words in 1899, and G. H. Cook wrote rhe music to it, also in 1899. The inspiration for this great hymn came from John 8:12, "I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life".

TITLE: Heavenly Sunlight

1. Walking in sunlight, all of my journey;
Over the mountain, thru the deep vale;
Jesus has said, "I'll never forsake thee,"
Promise divine that never can fail.
(REFRAIN)

2. Shadows around me, shadows above me,
Never conceal my Savior and Guide;
He is the light, in Him is no darkness,
Ever I'm walking close to His side.
(REFRAIN)

3. In the bright sunlight, ever rejoicing,
Pressing my way to mansions above;
Singing His praises, gladly I'm walking,
Walking in sunlight, sunlight of love.
(REFRAIN)

REFRAIN:
Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight,
Flooding my soul with glory divine;
Halllelujah! I am rejoicing,
Singing His praises, Jesus is mine.

Have a wonderful Sunday of worship and praise! God Bless, Vic.

  


A Saturday Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Goooooooooood Morning Everyone! Today's hymn was created by Alton H. Howard in 1977. He created both the words and the music. It's a wonderful hymn and the inspiration came from Ps 40:3, " And He has put a new song in my mouth....".

TITLE: He Gave Me A Song

1. He took my burdens all away, up to a brighter day,
He gave me a song, a wonderful song;
A wonderful song I now can sing, in my heart joy bells ring,
He gave me a song, a wonderful song.
(REFRAIN)

2. Brighter the way grows ev'ry day, walking the heavenly way,
He gave me a song, a wonderful song;
A wonderful song I now can sing, praises to Him, my King,
He gave me a song, a wonderful song.
(Refrain)

3. I am redeemed no more to die, never to say "goodbye,"
He gave me a song, a wonderful song;
And some of these days in that fair land, sing with the chorus grand,
He gave me a song, a wonderful song.
(Refrain)

REFRAIN:
He gave me a song, to sing about,
He lifted me, from sin and doubt;
Oh, praise His name, He is my King;
A wonderful song He is to me.

God Bless Everyone! Have a wonderful weekend. In His love, Vic.
