Brief Devotional for Sep 9, 2013
Actions Speak Louder

The only humility that is really ours is not that which we try to show before God in prayer, but that which we carry with us in our daily conduct.

Celtic Prayer for the Morning

I will kindle my fire this morning in the presence of the holy angels of heaven; Without malice, without jealousy, without envy, without fear; without terror of any one under the sun, but the Holy Son of God to shield me.

God, kindle thou in my heart within a flame of love to my neighbour, to my foe, to my friend, to my kindred all; To the brave, to the coward, to the man in the street, O Son of the loveliest Mary, from the lowliest thing that lives to the Name that is highest of all. In the name of Christ, I pray.

Worry

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.

Prayer to Find God in Nature

Morning and evening, Lord, I beseech Thee, suffer my cry from this wood to reach Thee; these are Thy presents, Thy heart I find in the dark forest in sleet and wind.

As on the sea Thou sailest before, a cloud, that our ship might see this shore, so now Thou walkest, these trees Thy feet, and in this brook Thy heart doth beat.

Lord, I am fearless, Thy mercy shown, for where Thou art there is nought unknown; what are these seemings save Thine own?

O grant Thy servant his grace of days, whose hours shall all be filled with praise: here Thy new works must numb’red be and fair names fitted to beast and tree.

All to be learned, all to be loved, thus ever fresh Thy kingdom proved.

READ: 1 Peter 1:22–2:3

As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby. —1 Peter 2:2

The 2010 documentary film Babies followed four infants who were born into very different circumstances in Namibia, Mongolia, Tokyo, and San Francisco. There is no narration or dialogue from adults in the film, only the sounds babies make as they begin to discover the world into which they have been born. They coo and laugh when they’re happy; they cry when they are hurt or hungry. And all of them like milk! The fascination of the film lies in watching them grow.

As a baby craves milk, followers of Christ are to crave the “pure milk of the Word” that leads to spiritual growth. The apostle Peter says, “Long to grow up into the fullness of your salvation; cry for this as a baby cries for his milk” (1 Peter 2:2 tlb). Peter wrote to encourage a group of Christ-followers who had been scattered by persecution. He urged them to set aside feelings of anger and jealousy toward each other, along with talking one way and living another (v.1), and “as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby” (v.2).

The Lord invites us to drink all that we need from His bountiful supply. He loves to watch His children grow! —David McCasland

Lord, I want to be more like You.
Please give me a fervent desire to drink of
Your Word. Grow me into a person who
resembles You in all I say and do.

Psalm 22:27-28 (ESV)

All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations shall worship before you.

For kingship belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.

What a Great Morning
Holy God, thank you for giving me another morning! I am lucky to be alive on your beautiful planet, so full of marvelous things and the beautiful plants and animals and all the people you have created in your image. Fill me with your Holy Spirit, now and all day long, until I go to sleep, because I want to live with you every minute of this day. The time and opportunities I have right now will never return, so help me make the best of it, Lord. And let me remember this one thing: You know what you are doing, whether I can see it or not; so I will try to remember today that you are in charge, that you put me here for a reason and that, by your grace, things will turn out with your triumph and the Kingdom of Heaven, for all those who live by your grace. All praise to you forever,

Martin Luther's Prayer for Morning

I give thanks to you, heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ your dear Son, that you have protected me through the night from all danger and harm. I ask you to preserve and keep me, this day also, from all sin and evil, that in all my thoughts, words, and deeds I may serve and please you. Into your hands I commend my body and soul and all that is mine. Let your holy angels have charge of me, that the wicked one have no power over me.

What’s in a Word?

God is not silent. It is the nature of God to speak. The second person of the Holy Trinity is called "The Word".

Prayer of Submission

Dear Lord, I give you my hands to do your work; I give you my feet to go your way; I give you my eyes to see as you see; I give you my tongue to speak your words; I give you my mind that you may think in me; I give you my spirit that you may pray in me. Above all, I give you my heart that you may love in me. I give you my whole self, Lord, that you may grow in me, so that it is you who lives, works and prays in me.

Psalm 70

Hasten, O God, to save me;
O Lord, come quickly to help me.

May those who seek my life
be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
be turned back in disgrace.

May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!"
turn back because of their shame.

But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation always say,
"Let God be exalted!"

Yet I am poor and needy;
come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
O Lord, do not delay.

Brief Devotional for Aug 23-24, 2013
First Things First

The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day.


Prayer to Love Others Today

Oh holy Christ, who has commanded us to love others as ourselves, it is a challenge to follow this commandment; many times every day I judge another, or grow angry, or look down upon someone. Or, I am simply selfish. I try to brag subtly, so that others will glorify me without me seeming conceited. I buy shiny new things I do not need just so that other people will be impressed. Sometimes, I pretend to love others, when inside I know my words are a lie.

My prayer is that you will help me to burn your love on my heart, so that I may know the peace of loving my fellow man. Let me be sincere in choosing good over evil. Let me seek my glory in you, Lord Christ, instead of in my own image, my own fame or status; for status is no more than vanity, that will disappear in the blink of an eye. Soften my heart so that I feel true sympathy, and so I value others just as I do myself.

May your Holy Spirit, who is with me, guide me in everything I think and do, this day and always.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.

Prayer of Thanks for God's Creation

O Lord God of Israel and God of the nations, you are the only God in heaven above or the earth below. I walk before you with all my heart. I bless your name in the morning when I rise and in the evening when I sleep, and all the day when your creation fills my eye. Bless me to remember you this day. When I see and hear the thousand miracles of your creation, let me see them anew, recalling that you have made them, and no other; that I may live in your presence among the common miracles I take for granted. Through Christ I pray,

Two-way Street
Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue. Gods voice in response to mine is its most essential part.

Prayer for the Morning

Oh Lord, most heavenly Father, Almighty and everlasting God, who has safely brought me to the beginning of this day; I give you thanks for my creation, preservation, and all the blessings of my life. Grant that this day I fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger; but that all my doings, being governed by your will, may be righteous in your sight. Through Christ our Lord, I pray.

Proverbs 25:21-22 (ESV)

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,

For you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the Lord will reward you.



To Keep God in Mind This Day

Lord, let me begin this day in devout meditations, in joy unspeakable, and in blessing and praising You, who has given me such good hope and everlasting consolation.

Lift up my mind above all these little things below, which are apt to distract my thoughts; and keep it above, until my heart is fully resolved to seek You every day, in the path where Jesus has trod before me.

Psalm 67 (KJV)

God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us.
That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.

Let the people praise thee, O God;
let all the people praise thee.
O let the nations be glad and sing for joy:
for thou shalt judge the people righteously,
and govern the nations upon earth.

Let the people praise thee, O God;
let all the people praise thee.
Then shall the earth yield her increase;
and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
God shall bless us;
and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

I ........Uh........am Sorry.............

The news is quick to report all the details of famous people’s wrongdoings and their subsequent confessions. Perhaps it’s an athlete who was arrested for driving while drunk. Or it could be a politician caught in an indiscretion. Only God knows the heart, but when we hear a stuttered “I’m . . . uh . . . sorry,” we may wonder if they are truly repentant or just sorry they got caught.

When we read the confession of the famous King David we see what looks like genuine contriteness. In his public discussion of his sins in Psalm 51, this disgraced monarch—who had an embarrassing record of flagrant sins which he had kept hidden (2 Sam. 12:1-13; Ps. 32:3-5)—pleads for mercy.

He recognized that his sin was an affront to God—not just to people—and that God alone can judge him (Ps. 51:1-6). He realized that he must be cleansed by God (vv.7-10), and he celebrated his restoration through service and worship (vv.11-17).

All of us sin and fall short of God’s glory. When we feel the heavy burden of sin weighing us down, we have the blessing of confession and forgiveness (1 John 1:9) to lift us up. Isn’t it just like our great God to turn even our sins into an opportunity to grow in His grace and power and love!

Let Us Pray:
Dear Lord, please give me a humble heart
and the courage to confess my sins before You
and others. Thank You for Your promise to be
faithful to forgive my sins and to cleanse me.
Confession is agreeing with God about our sin.

Matthew 5:21-26 (ESV)
Sermon on the Mount - Anger

You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.

So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison. Truly, I say to you, you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.”

READ: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25

Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety. —Proverbs 11:14

The online description of The Wisdom of Crowds reads, “In this fascinating book, New Yorker business columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea: Large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant—better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.”

The author uses a variety of things, ranging from pop culture to politics, to present one basic thought: More often than not, the crowd gets it right. It’s an interesting theory, but one that would probably be debated during election years or when someone’s favorite contestant is voted off a reality TV show.

While the Bible makes it clear that the wisdom of crowds may not be reliable and can be dangerous (Matt. 7:13-14), there is another way collective wisdom can be helpful. In Proverbs 11:14, we read, “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” One of the benefits of the body of Christ is that we can assist one another—in part by working together to seek God’s wisdom. When we join together to pursue God’s purposes, we find safety in His provision of each other and receive His wisdom for the challenges of life. —Bill Crowder

Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise. —Smith

A Short Devotion With Each Breath

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. (Psalm 150:6)

I have aspirations. Not of grandeur or power, but the old-fashioned kind: I breathe. And since every breath is a gift from God, it's a given that some portion ought to be directed back to Him. So I keep a stock of breath-long prayers on hand to use throughout the day:

Lord Jesus, I love you.

Holy Spirit, guide my words.

Father, have mercy on me.

Father, forgive me.

Jesus, help me.

Lord, I praise you.

You get the idea. One breath, one prayer. It’s a simple act that can permeate our days. We inhale an average of 15 times a minute, more than 20,000 times a day. Try using a few of those breaths—5? 10? 20?—to exhale your love and whisper your devotion.

Psalm 119:1-3, 101-105 (ESV)

Blessed are those whose way is blameless,
who walk in the law of the Lord!
Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,
who seek him with their whole heart,
who also do no wrong,
but walk in his ways!

I hold back my feet from every evil way,
in order to keep your word.
I do not turn aside from your rules,
for you have taught me.
How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through your precepts I get understanding;
therefore I hate every false way.

Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.

Calm Down and Carry on:

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:11-13, ESV)

You know what’s great about being a Christian? Life comes with a survival kit. In all the twists and turns and hiccups of life, we have a trusty and handy source that can get you through it all. Of course I’m referring to the strength we find in Jesus. The Apostle Paul serves as an excellent example of surviving everything life throws his way. He wrote today’s devotional Bible verse. Verse 13 is often used more on a regular basis by than the previous two verses: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ( Philippians 4:13)

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:1-2, ESV)

Throughout the Psalms (praise songs) David refers to God as his fortress, refuge, and strength. He faced many physical and spiritual battles throughout his life and saw firsthand how God provides a strong fortress regardless of what attacks us. In the ancient world the fortress was often walled off from the rest of the city, supplied with food, water, and ammunition where the people could be protected and the city could be defended. David knew that he did not need to fear, because in God he found a fortress stronger than any attack this world could muster.

Psalms 16-17; Acts 20:1-16

Some of us are able to create an illusion of strength and self-sufficiency. But sudden loss of health, employment, or a treasured relationship is a startling reminder of our total dependence on God.

When we experience the fiery furnace of suffering—whether physical or emotional, whether persecution from without or humiliation from within—God’s loving purpose is to make us pure and strong.
God uses testing in our lives

Today’s Reading: Psalms 10; Acts 19:1-20

Today’s Thoughts: Our Teacher

But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. 1 John 2:27

God Hates Arrogance - UpWords - Week of July 12-18

Proverbs 16:18 reminds us as humility goes before honor, “pride goes before a fall.”

Ever wonder why churches are powerful in one generation but empty the next? The Bible says, the Lord will tear down the house of the proud. God hates arrogance. He hates it because we haven’t done anything to be arrogant about. Is there a Pulitzer for ink? Can you imagine a scalpel growing smug after a successful heart transplant? Of course not. They are only tools. So are we. We may be the canvas, the paper, or the scalpel, but we are not the one who deserve the applause.

David declares who does in Psalm 23, “He makes me, He leads me, He restores my soul… for His name's sake." For His name's sake! No other name. This is all done for God’s glory. He takes the credit, not because He needs it, but because He knows we cannot handle it!

Worship Me Only. Idolatry has always been the downfall of My people. I make no secrets about being a jealous God. Current idols are more subtle than ancient ones, because today's false God's are often outside the field of religion. People, position, status, and self-aggrandizement are some of the most popular deities today. Beware of bowing down before these.things. False gods never satisfy, instead they stir up lust for more and more.

When you seek Me instead of the world's idols, you experience my joy and peace. The light of My Presence is everlasting. Walk in the light with Me.

Revelations 17:14 John 15:13-15

Relax in My Peaceful Presence. Do not bring performance pressures into our sacred space of communion. When you are with someone you trust completely, you feel free to be yourself. This is one of the joys of true friendship. Though I am Lord of Lords and King of Kings, I also desire to be your intimate friend. When you are tense or pretentious in our relationship I feel hurt. I know the worst about you and I also see the best in you. I long for you to trust Me enough to be fully yourself with Me. When you are real with Me I am able to bring out the best in you; the very gifts I have planted in your soul. Relax, and enjoy our friendship.

Deuteronomy 30:20 Genesis 1:27 Romans 12:2

Stop worrying long enough to hear My voice. I speak softly to you in the depths of My being. Your mind shuttles back and forth, hither and yon, weaving webs of anxious confusion. As My thoughts rise up within you, they become entangles in those sticky webs of worry. Thus My voice is muffled, and you hear only "white noise'.

Ask My Spirit to quiet your mind so that You can think My thoughts. This ability is an awesome benefit of being My child, patterned after My own image. Do not be defeated by the noise of the world, or that of your own thinking. Instead be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Sit quietly in My Presence, letting My thoughts reprogram your thinking.

John 15:11 1 Corinthians 13:12

When you seek My Face put aside your thoughts of everything else. I am above all, as well as in all: your communion in Me transcends both time and circumstances. Be prepared to be blessed bountifully by My Presence, for I am a God of unlimited abundance. Open wide your heart and mind to receive more and more of Me. When your Joy in Me meets My Joy in You, there are fireworks of heavenly ecstasy. This is eternal life here and now: a tiny foretaste of what awaits you in the life to come. Now you see only a poor reflection as in a mirror, but then you will see face to Face.

Psalms 10:7 1 John 1:9 Luke 1:79

Trust Me in all your thoughts. I know that some thoughts are unconscious or subconscious and I do not hold you responsible for them. But you can direct conscious thoughts much more than you may realize. Practice thinking in certain ways--------------trusting Me, thanking Me, -----and those thoughts become more natural.

Reject negative or sinful thoughts, as soon as you become aware of them. Don't try to hide them from Me. Go on your way lightheartedly. This method of controlling your thoughts will keep your mind in My Presence., and your feet on the path of peace.

“And these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” (Genesis 15:1 KJV)

FEAR NOT
Here in Genesis 15:1, the Lord is clearly telling Abram not to fear. This command can also be seen all throughout the Bible. And this is the same command that Jesus wants us to know. 2 Timothy 1:7 says that God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. We are to fear nothing in this world because we have a great God. We have a powerful God that is greater than any circumstance that we could ever face. He is greater than any problem, trial, temptation, need, sickness and even death. So the moment that we are feeling scared, pause for a moment and call on Jesus. You will be
amazed by how He will strengthen you (Phil 4;13).

Romans 8:38-39 Psalms 56:3 Isaiah 43:19

Draw near to Me with a thankful heart, aware that your cup is overflowing with blessings. Gratitude enables you to perceive Me more clearly and to rejoice in your love-relationship. Nothing can separate you from My loving Presence! That is the basis of your security. Whenever you start to feel anxious, remind yourself that your security rest in Me alone, and I am totally trustworthy.

You will never be in control of your life's circumstances, but you can relax and trust in My control. Instead of striving for a predictable, safe lifestyle, seek to know Me in greater depths and breadth. I long to make your life a glorious adventure, but you must stop clinging to old ways. I am always doing something new within My beloved ones. Be on the lookout for all I have prepared for you.

John 4:23-24 Psalms 100:4

When you worship Me in spirit and in truth, you join the choir of angels, who are continually before My throne. Though you can not hear their voices, your praise and thanksgiving are distinctly audible in heaven. Your petitions are also heard, but it is your gratitude that clears the way to My heart. This duty is such a joyous privilege that it feels like a luxury. With the way between us wide open, My blessings fall upon you in rich abundance. The greatest blessing is nearness to Me----------abundant Joy and Peace in My Presence. Practice praising and and thanking Me continually throughout this day.

Luke 6:37 Timothy 4:8 Titus 3:5 Romans 8:3

My Children------make a pastime of judging one another---and themselves. But I am the only capable Judge,and I have acquitted you through my own blood. Your acquittal came at at the price of my unparalleled sacrifice. That is why I am highly offended when I hear My Children judge one another or indulge in self-hatred.

If you live close to Me and absorb My Word, the Holy Spirit will guide and correct you as needed. There is no condemnation for those who belong to Me.

Psalms 5:2-3 Deuteronomy 33:27

Let Me show you My way for you this day. I guide you continually so that you can relax and enjoy My Presence in the present. Living well is both a discipline and an art. Concentrate on staying close to Me, the divine Artist. Discipline your thoughts to trust Me as I work My ways in your life. Pray about everything, then leave outcomes up to Me. Do not fear My will, for through it I accomplish what is best for you. Take a deep breathe and dive into the depths of absolute trust in Me. Underneath are the everlasting arms!

Psalms 48:9 Deuteronomy 33:12 Psalms 37:4

I am Life and Light in Abundance. As you spend time "soaking' in My Presence you are energized and lightened. Through communing with Me your heavy burdens are transferred to My strong shoulders. By gazing at Me you gain My perspective on your life. This time alone with Me is essential for unscrambling your thoughts and smoothing out the day before you.

Be willing to fight for this precious time with Me. Opposition comes in many forms; your own desire to linger in bed; the evil one's determined to distract you from Me; the pressure of family, friends, and your own inner critic to spend your time more productively. As you grow in your desire to please Me above all else, you gain strength to resist these opponents. Delight yourself in Me, for I am the deepest desire of your heart.

John 8:32 Philippians 2:13 John 14:6

I am the Truth, the one that came to set you free. As the holy spirit controls your mind and actions more fully, you become free of Me. You are increasingly released to become the one I created You to be. This is a work that I do in you as you yield to My Spirit. I can do my best handiwork when you sit in the stillness of My Presence, focusing your entire being on Me.

Let My thoughts burst freely upon your consciousness, stimulating abundant Life. As you follow me, I lead you along paths of newness; ways you have never imagined. Don't worry about what is on the road up ahead. I want you to find your security in knowing Me, the One who died to set you free.

Psalms 5:3 Psalms 63:1 Philippians 4:13

As you get out of bed in the morning; be aware of My Presence with you. You may not be thinking clearly yet, but I am . Your early morning thoughts tend to be anxious ones until you get connected to Me. Invite Me into your thoughts by whispering My Name. Suddenly your day brightens and feels more user-friendly. You can not dread a day that is vibrant with My Presence.

You gain confidence through knowing that I am with you-------that you face nothing alone. Anxiety stems from asking the wrong questions. "If such and such happens, can I handle it?" The true question is not whether you can cope with whatever happens, but whether you and I can handle anything that occurs. It is this you and I together factor that gives you confidence to face the day cheerfully.

Psalms 34:8 Isaiah 35:8-9

Taste and see that I am Good. This command contains an invitation to experience My Living Presence. It also contains a promise. The more you experience Me the more convinced you become of My Goodness. This knowledge is essential to your faith-walk. When adversities strike the human instinct is to doubt My goodness. My ways are mysterious, even to those who know Me intimately. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways and thoughts higher than your ways and thoughts. Do not try to fathom My ways. Instead, spend time enjoying Me, and experiencing My goodness.

Psalms 143:8 Genesis 28:15

Rest with Me awhile. You have journeyed up a steep, rugged path in recent days. The way ahead is shrouded in uncertainty. Look neither behind you nor before you. Instead, focus your attention on Me, your constant companion. Trust that I will equip you fully for whatever awaits you on your journey.

I designed time to be protection of you. You couldn't bear to see all your life at once. Though I am unlimited by time; it is in the present moment that I meet you. Refresh yourself in my company, breathing deep draughts of My Presence. The highest level of trust is to enjoy Me moment by moment. I am with you, watching over you wherever you go.

Jude 24:25 2 Corinthians 4:16-17

Stay calmly conscious of Me today, no matter what. Remember that I go before you as well as with you into the day. Nothing takes Me by surprise. I will not allow circumstances to overwhelm you so long as you look to Me. I will help you cope with whatever the moment presents. Collaborating with Me brings blessings that far outweigh all your troubles. Awareness of My Presence contains joy that can endure all eventualities.

Psalms 118:24 Psalms 95:2 Zephaniah 3:17

Open your hands and your hearts to receive this day as a precious gift from Me. I begin each day with a sunrise, announcing my radiant Presence. By the time you rise from your bed, I have already prepared the way before you. I eagerly await your first conscious thought. I rejoice when you glance my way.

Bring Me the gift of thanksgiving, which opens your heart to rich communion with Me. Because I am God from whom all blessings flow, thankfulness is the best way to draw near Me. Sing Praise songs to Me; tell of my wondrous works. Remember that I take great delight in you; I rejoice over you with singing.

Psalms 32:8-9 Deuteronomy 31-6 Ephesians 4-30

Let My Love Stream Through You, washing away fear and distrust. A trusting response includes Me in your thoughts as you consider strategies to deal with a situation. My continual Presence is a promise, guaranteeing that you never have to face anything alone. My children teethe on the truth that I am always with them, yet they stumble around in a stupor, unaware of My loving Presence all around them. How that grieves Me!

When you walk through a day in trusting dependence on Me, My aching heart is soothed. Gently bring your attention back to Me, whenever it wanders away. I look for persistence, rather than perfection---in your walk with ME.

Philippians 4:4-6

Thank Me for the very things that are troubling you. You are on the brink of rebellion, precariously close to shaking your fist in My Face. You are tempted to indulge in just a little complaining about My treatment of you. But once you step over that line, torrents of rage and self-pity can sweep you away. The best protection against this indulgence is thanksgiving. It is impossible to thank Me and curse Me at the same time.

Thanking Me for trials will feel awkward and contrived at first. But if you persist, your thankful words, prayed in faith, will eventually make a difference in your heart. Thankfulness awakes you to My Presence, which overshadows all your problems.

Micah 7: 7 Revelations 1:8 Numbers 6:24-26

Wait Patiently With Me while I bless you. Don't rush into My Presence with time consciousness gnawing at your mind. I dwell in timelessness, I am, I was, I will always be. For you, time is a protection, your a frail creature who can handle only twenty four hours segments of life. Time can also be a tyrant, ticking away relentlessly in your mind. Learn to master time, or it will be your master.

Though you are a time bound creature, seek to meet Me in timelessness. As you focus on My Presence, the demands of task and and time will diminish. I will bless you and keep you making My Face shine upon you graciously, giving you Peace.

Psalms 8:1-4 Psalms 19:1-2 1 Corinthians 6:19 Jeremiah 29:13


I speak to you continually. My nature is to communicate, though not always in words. I fling glorious sunsets across the sky, day after day after day. I speak in the faces and voices of loved ones. I caress you with a gentle breeze, that refreshes and delights you. I speak softly in the depths of your spirit, where I have taken up residence.

You can find Me in each moment, when you have eyes that see and hears that hear. Ask My Spirit to sharpen your spiritual eyesight and hearing. I rejoice each time you discover My Presence. Practice looking and listening for Me during quiet intervals. Gradually you will find Me in more and more of your moments. You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me above all else.

Psalms 5:11 Ephesians 3:20-21 Jude 24 Joshua 2:5

I am the firm foundation on which you can dance and sing and celebrate My Presence. This is My high and holy calling for you; receive it as a precious gift. Glorifying and enjoying Mei is a higher priority than maintaining a tidy, structured life. Give up your striving to keep everything under control an impossible task and a waste of precious energy.

My guidance for each of My children is unique. That is why listening to Me is so vital to your well-being. Let me prepare you for the day that awaits you and point you in the right direction. I am with you conditionally so don't be intimidated by fear. Though it stalks you it can not harm you. as long as you cling to My hand. Keep your eyes on Me, enjoying Peace in My Presence.

Ephesians 1:4 Proverbs 16:9 Jeremiah 29:11 Ephesians 1: 13-14


You are my beloved child. I chose you before the foundation of the world, to walk with Me, along paths designed uniquely for you. Concentrate on keeping in step with Me, instead of trying to anticipate My plans for you. If you trust that My plans are to prosper you and not harm you, you can relax and enjoy the present moment.

Your hope and your future are rooted in heaven where eternal ecstasy awaits you. Nothing can rob you of your inheritance of unimaginable riches and well-being. Sometimes I grant you glimpses of your glorious future, to encourage you and spur you on. But your main focus should be staying close to Me. I set the pace in keeping with your needs and My purposes.

Proverbs 17:22 Proverbs 31:25 Matthew 1:23 Matthew 11:28-30 amp


Learn to laugh at yourself more freely, don't take your self or your circumstances so seriously. Relax and know that I am God with you. When you desire my will above all else life becomes much less threatening. Stop trying to monitor my responsibilities, things that are beyond your control. Find freedom by accepting the boundaries of your domain.

Laughter lightens your load and lifts your heart into heavenly places. Your laughter rises to heaven and blends with angelic melodies of praise. Just as parents delight in the laughter of there children so I delight in hearing my children laugh. I rejoice when you trust Me enough to enjoy your life lightheartedly.

Do not miss the joy of my presence by carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Rather take my yoke upon you and learn of Me. My yoke is comfortable and pleasant. My burden is light and easy borne.

Ephesians 2:10 Micah 6:8

Stay on the high road with Me. Many voices clamor for your attention trying to divert you to another path. But I have called you to walk ever so closely with Me, soaking in My Presence, living in My Peace. This is My unique design for you, planned before the world began.

I have called each of my children to a different path, distinctly designed for that one. Do not let anyone convince you that his path is the only right way. And be careful not to extol your path as superior to another's way. What I require of you is to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Me----------wherever I lead.

2 Corinthians 4:18

When you approach Me in stillness and in trust, you are strengthened. You need a buffer zone of silence around you in order to focus on things that are unforeseen. Since I am invisible, you must not let your senses dominate your thinking. The curse of this age is overstimulating of the senses which blocks out awareness of the unseen world.

The visible world still reflects My Glory, to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Spending time alone with Me is the best way to develop seeing eyes and hearing ears. The goal is to become aware of unseen things even as you live your life in the visible world.

Jeremiah 31:3 Isaiah 61:10 1 Peter 2;10


I Have Loved You with an everlasting love. Before time began, I knew you. For years you swam around in a sea of meaninglessness, searching for love, hoping for hope. All that time I was pursuing you, aching to Embrace you in my compassionate arms.

When time was right, I revealed myself to you. I lifted you out of the sea of despair, and set you down on a firm foundation. Sometimes you felt naked-------exposed to the revealing Light of My Presence. I wrapped an ermine robe around you. My robe of righteousness, I sang you a Love Song, whose beginning and end are veiled in eternity. I infused meaning into your mind and harmony into your heart. Join Me in singing My Song. Together we will draw others out of the darkness into my marvelous Light.

Galatians 5:22

I am creating something new in you; a bubbling spring of Joy that spills over into others' lives. Do not mistake this Joy for your own or try to take credit for it in any way. Instead, watch in delight as My Spirit flows through you to bless others. Let yourself become a reservoir of the Spirits fruit.

Your part is to live close to Me, open to all I am doing in you. Don't try to control the streaming of My Spirit through you. Just keep focusing on Me, as we walk through this day together. Enjoy My Presence, which permeates you with Joy, Peace and Love.

1 Corinthian 10:10 Luke 1: 79

Let Me help you through this day, there are many possible paths to travel between your getting up in the morning and lying down at night. Stay alert to the many choice-points along the way, being continually aware of My Presence. You will get through this day one way or the other. One way is to moan and groan, stumbling along with shuffling feet. This will get you to the end of the day eventually, but there is a better way. You can chose to walk with Me, along the path of peace, leaning on Me as much as you need. There will still be difficulties along the way, but you can face them confidently, in My strength. Thank Me for each problem you encounter, and watch to see how I transform trials into blessings.

Isaiah 12:2 Romans 8:6

Trust me and don't be afraid, for I am your strength and song. Do not let fear dissipate your energy. Instead, invest your energy in trusting Me and singing my song. The battle for control of your mind is fierce, and years of worry may have made you vulnerable to the enemy. Therefore you need to be vigilant in guarding your thoughts. Do not despise this weakness in yourself, since I am using it to draw you closer to Me.

Your constant need for Me creates an intimacy that is well worth all your effort. You are not alone in this struggle for your mind. My spirit living within you is ever ready to help in this striving. Ask Him to control your mind; and then He will bless you with Life and Peace.

Deuteronomy 12:10 Psalms 62:5

Rest in Me My Child, give your mind a break from planning and trying to anticipate what will happen. Pray continually, asking My Spirit to take charge of the details of this day. Remember that you are on a journey with Me. When you try to peer into the future and plan for every possibility, you ignore your constant companion, who sustains you moment by moment. As you gaze anxiously into the distance, you don't even feel the strong grip of My hand holding yours. How foolish you are, My Child!

Remembrance of Me is a daily discipline. Never lose sight of My Presence with you. This will keep you resting in Me all day, every day.

1 Peter 4:8 John 4:18 Revelations 2:4

Seek to Live in My Love, which covers a multitude of sins not only others sins but also yours. Wear My Love like a cloak of Light covering you from head to toe. Have no fear for perfect Love decimates fear, look at other people through lens of Love. See them from My Perspective. This is how you walk in the Light, and it pleases Me.

I want my body of believers to be radiant with the Light of My Presence. How I grieve when pockets of darkness increasingly dim the love-light. Return to Me your first Love, gaze at Me in the splendor of holiness, and My Love will once again envelope you in Light.

Mathew 18:18 Psalms 100:4

I want you to be all Mine, filled with the light of My Presence. I gave everything for you by living as a man, and dying for your sins and living again Hold back nothing from Me. Bring your most secret thoughts into the Light of My Love.. Anything you bring to Me I transform and cleanse from darkness. I know everything about you, far more than you know of yourself. But I restrain My yearning to "fix" you, waiting instead for you to come to Me for help. Imagine the divine restraint this requires for I have all power in heaven and on earth.

Seek My Face with a teachable spirit. Come into My Presence with Thanksgiving, desiring to be transformed.

Luke 12:22-31

I am all around you, like a cocoon of Light, My Presence with you is a Promise, independent of your awareness of Me. Many things can block this awareness, but the major culprit is worry. My children tend to accept worry as as an inescapable fact of life. However, worry is a form of unbelief, it is anathema of Me.

Who is in charge of your Life? If it is you then you have a good reason to worry. But if it is I, then worry is both counterproductive and unnecessary. When you start to feel anxious about something, relinquish the situation to Me. Back off a bit, redirecting your focus to Me. I will either take care of the problem myself or show you how to handle it. In this world you will have problems, but you need not lose sight of Me.

Psalms 105: 4 Psalms 19: 1-2 Isaiah 60:2

Seek My Face and you will find fulfillment of your deepest longings. My world is filled with beautiful things, they are meant to be pointers to Me; reminders of My abiding Presence. The earth still declares my Glory to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

You had a darkened mind before you sought Me wholeheartedly, I chose to pour My Light into you, so that you can be a beacon to others. Their is no room for pride in this position. Your part is to reflect My Glory, I am the Lord!

Exodus 20:3 Psalm 37:4

Remember that you live in a fallen world; an abnormal world tainted by sin. Much frustration and failure result from your seeking perfection in this life. There is nothing in this world except Me. That is why closeness to Me satisfies deep yearnings and fills you with Joy.

I have planted longing for perfection in every human heart. This is a good desire that I alone can fulfill. But most people seek this fulfillment in other people and earthy pleasures and achievements. Thus they create idols before which they bow down. I will have no other gods before Me. Make Me the deepest desires of your heart. Let Me fulfill your yearning for perfection.

James 1:2 Philippians 4:13 Isaiah 26:3

Welcome challenging times as opportunities to trust Me. You have Me beside you and My Spirit within you so no set of circumstances is too much for you to handle. When the path before you is dotted with difficulties beware of measuring your strength against those challenges. That calculation is certain to riddle you with anxiety. Without Me you wouldn't make it past the first hurdle.

The way to walk through demanding days is to grip my hand tightly and stay in close communication with Me. Let your thoughts and spoken words be richly flavored with trust and thankfulness. Regardless of the days problems I can keep you in perfect Peace as you stay close to Me.

1 John 4:18

I want to be Central in your entire being. When your focus is firmly on Me, My Peace displaces fears and worries. They will encircle you, seeking entrance, so you must stay alert. Let trust and thankfulness stand guard turning back fear before it can gain a foothold. There is no fear in My love which shines on you continually. Sit quietly in my love-light, while I bless you with radiant peace. Turn your whole being to trusting and loving Me.

Psalms 46:10 1 John 3:2

Relax in My Healing, holy Presence. Be still while I transform your heart and mind. Let go of cares and worries, so that you can receive My Peace. Cease striving, and know that I am God.

Do not be like Pharisees who multiplied regulations, creating their own form of "godliness" They got so wrapped up in their own rules that they lost sight of Me. Even today, man-made rules about how to live the Christian life enslave many people. Their focus in on their performance, rather than on Me.

It is through knowing Me intimately that you become like Me. This requires spending time alone with Me. Let go, relax, be still, and know that I am God. .

Psalms 18:30 Isaiah 41:13

I am involved in each moment of your life. I have carefully mapped out every inch of your journey through this day even though much of it may feel haphazard. Because the world is in a fallen condition, things always seem to be unraveling around the edges. Expect to find trouble in this day. At the same time trust that My way is perfect, even in the midst of such messy imperfections.

Stay conscious of Me as you go through this day, remembering that I never leave your side. Let the Holy Spirit guide you, step by step, protecting you from unnecessary trials and equipping you to get through whatever must be endured. As you trudge through the sludge of this fallen world, keep your mind in heavenly places with Me. Thus the Light of My Presence shines on you, giving you peace and joy that circumstances cannot touch.
