Daily inspiration and Birth Verse for November 16:

Friday, November 16, 2012

Daily inspiration: To reach Heaven, we must sail. Sometimes we sail with the wind and sometimes against the wind, but we must sail, not drift or be anchored. Lord, Thy Will be done so that I will stay on course all the days of my life.

Daily Scripture & Reflection: All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever. 1Peter 1:24-25

A Time to Think: We can do nothing without prayer. All things can be done by importunate prayer. It surmounts or removes all obstacles, overcomes every resisting force and gains its ends in the face of invincible hindrances. –E. M. Bounds

A Time to Act: Believe in what you can become.

A Time to Pray: Lord, all things are possible if we believe. Thank you for loving us enough to send what we need.

Birth Verse for November 16: Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ Acts 11:16

PrayFit devotional: Now What? Nov 15, 2012; Read: Ecclesiastes 3
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. —Ecclesiastes 3:11

Now what? Have you ever asked yourself that? If so, you’re not alone. It may not comfort you to know that this ham-and-egg writer has asked himself that question many times, but a few others you’ll recognize just might. Abraham when he reached the altar with Isaac, Moses when he reached the sea, or Joshua when they finally reached Jericho. The same question they whispered to themselves after being obedient was the same question Satan shouted when Jesus was on the cross: Now what?

In response, God left Heaven’s hall for Bethlehem’s stall. He then climbed out of his crib and onto the cross. He became the answer to our biggest question and our direst need. Are you facing a now what moment? Maybe your health is taking a wrong turn or the job you wanted is already filled. Whatever you’re dealing with, the next time you look up at the stars with unanswered questions, think of Abraham. When you run into a sea of obstacles or walls too tall to climb, remember Moses and Joshua. Just like you, their question just before the miracle was Now what?’ –Jimmy Peña www.prayfit.com/2012/11/
