As both a great travel and workout day, I was blessed with five 30-minute Joel Osteen messages. While they are wonderfully uplifting, they work well with one who already has a firm foundation in the Word. I am wonderfully made to accomplish exceedingly well the will of God.

I listen to Joyce's Daily broadcast and find motivation to reflect of a variety of Bible meditations that meet a need for my growth. How we are in relationship with God so He is even more present in our thoughts and actions is how we better show God's love to those in need.

This week I will have had the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for a life in Christ in two nursing homes four times. Tonight I shared dinner with a Christian group celebrating Ladies Night Out. God is good! I am blessed!

11 "Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

a. What does that mean?
b. John was the last of the Old Testament prophets.
c. He ushered in the era of grace and the New Covenant or New Testament

12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
a. This is self explanatory.

14 And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come.
a. Read Malachi 4:5 and this will explain that. A prophesy which was fulfilled.

15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
a. Again he who has SPIRITUAL ears let him hear.

Luke 23. Jesus was arrested and mocked for what he was saying to the people about the Lord God and His Kingdom. He even told the people what it would be like in Heaven. Jesus was praying when they came and arrested Him and Judas kissed him on the cheek and Jesus said do betray your master with a kiss and that is when they arrested him. They took him to the Pilate and mocked him and then the High Priest told them to take Jesus to Herod which they did and Herod didn't like what he saw and told them to take him back. Then the trial and then they wanted Barabbas to be set free to me so he can kill again but who knows if he did or not.
Then they crucified him.
So Jesus took all our sins upon himself to be our Savior. So we have a place to live after we pass away in HIs Kingdom.
That is what I got out of it.

SNOWYOGA I went to Joyce's page and clicked on one of her sermons and right under it was the 30-30 challenge. You can subscribe to it and she will send you e-mails which inspire and encourage you along the way.
30 minutes for 30 days. I did it once before and it was wonderful.
I meditate, get quiet and praise before starting my reading.
Take notes and find some things I didn't know before sometimes. Then I pray and praise some more.
What a glorious time. I post my notes I take so it can bless others.

Today I meditated on three verses, (abbreviated below)

EXODUS 16:15–20 Manna for just the day.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6–7, 19 prayer, petition, thanksgiving, and peace.
HEBREWS 4:16 Approach the throne of grace with confidence, receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

These remind me that God's great mercy, grace, and peace are mine and sufficient for just the day. I must come again, through prayer and petition to ask for another days helping. We have a Lord who wants us to fully rely on Him.

FOR JUNE 8

I had a time of meditation and quiet before as well as praise and prayer.

I read Matthew 11:6-11 In verse 7 Jesus speaks concerning John the Baptist (his cousin)

What did you go out to see?

Did you go out to see a PROPHET? verses 8-9

God sent John to prepare the way before Jesus -who ushered in the era of grace.

In Malachi 3:1 you see this prophesied in the old testament.

It speaks of the message of the covenant which means the New covenant of grace which Jesus brought in.

Afterwards I had a time of meditation thinking on what I had read and what John had suffered to bring us the New Testament (which means the New Covenant) which Jesus brought in.

This 30 30 challenge will be good for us since Joyce started this in the first place. So we should do the Bible study and dig a little bit deeper into Gods word. And Sunday is a good time to start. It won't take long but if we commit our selves to do this then we should be doing God's work and reading his word.
Hope you all join us in this challenge.

Great job on a slice of the word, and you did a good job. I will be doing mine tonight. Dar, or whoever else is doing this, let us know too, if you get something especially meaningful. I worked Thurs and Friday and have been doing a lot for our Mom.

She still have to leave June 30 and things haven't come together.. but thank God we got two leads and hope to be able to proceed Monday. I can't believe the landlord still refuses to give her any extra time. I don't think it is fair to evict someone because they can't find anything from the long waiting lists. She always paid her rent in the past. This will mess up her record and if they keep going, her finances. They had her sign a paper to get extra two months. So, her name hasn't come up in 4 months.

I don't think Joyce has this challenge on anymore but it is good we continue it anyway.
I got this from an old post she wrote.

Begin with prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to be your Teacher;
use a Bible translation you can understand;
make it a priority every day;
be flexible and have your study whenever is best for your schedule;
meditate on verses youve studied throughout the day;
if youre struggling with an issue in your life, study scriptures which address that issue;
you can use Bible study tools like concordances to help you go deeper, if youd like;
eliminate distractions like your cell phone, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email and focus on Gods word;
be consistent.

Today I sat and meditated, let my mind rest in God and praised Him.

Then I picked up my Bible which was in my lap and read:

[Mat 11:3-5 NKJV] 3 and said to Him, "Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?"
This was his question.
John was in jail and although he had already seen the glory of God he began to wonder.

4 Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and tell John the things which you hear and see:
1. Tell him what you hear (Spiritually) We have to hear the word spiritually before we
we can believe.
2. Tell him the things you see (spiritually and physically)

5 "[The] blind see and [the] lame walk; [the] lepers are cleansed and [the] deaf hear; [the] dead are raised up and [the] poor have the gospel preached to them.
THE LIST
1. The blind see (spiritually and physically.
2. The lame walk (spiritually and physically)
3. The lepers are cleansed ( physically and spiritual uncleanness as well)
4. The dead are raised up (physically and also spiritual dead are raised up)
5. And the poor have the gospel preached to them (The spiritually poor and the
Materially poor.

So many things in these 3 verses. When we meditate and wait on the Lord the Word means so much more to us.

My 30 minutes were up. I did the 30-30 challenge once before.

Lively Jeans wanted to revive this thread. What I understood is this:
1. We are to get comfortable
2. Pray and praise
3. Read a portion (not through the Bible which I have done many times without meditating on what I read)
4. Let something pop out at you, you never saw before.
5. Write it down in your note book.
6. Meditate on it.
7. Pass it on

So, we pray, praise, read, meditate and share.
Am I right?

attention: this relates today:




Gods Word is Sharp
If youre living under any deceptions, getting into Gods Word might be a little uncomfortable. Thats because Hes using it to speak into your heart to expose the lies you need to confront and transform you to be more like Him.



Scripture icon



This Week's Scripture:

For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12




Article icon



Article:

How Trusting God Can Transform Your Life
As we spend time reading and meditating on Scripture, we develop a strong spirit. Then we can hear God speaking to our heart where He lives in us and make decisions based upon what Hes leading us to do, not just what we may think, feel or want. Read more



Tip icon



Tip from Joyce:

We cannot know God apart from His Word, so we must be committed to studying it, meditating on it, and making it the basis of all that we do. - Joyce Meyer, Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits




Study Suggestion icon



Study Suggestion:

Make this your prayer: Psalm 139:23-24

May your journey into a more regular routine of reading God's word bring you great comfort and wisdom to aid the quality of life for you and your family.

While I often fail at one aspect of this daily reading for a 30 minutes, it is important that we take time to know our calling from Christ and being in his Word daily. I treasure opportunities of growth when we are in worship, study, prayer, and serving others.

May you be enriched in living the blessed life. Hug, hug - Evelyn.

Hey y'all, I'd like to revive this thread. The Lord has been really dealing with me to read the Bible. I could read just about any other Christian book except for it. I've memorized and know lots of scriptures from doing that and from church, but not from my own Bible study.

Finally last summer, something moved me and I read through the gospels in no time and was reading everyday, but then my life got turned upside down again (happens to me a lot) and I stopped at Romans and haven't picked up the Bible since except to carry it to church.

I plan to start tomorrow as today is hubby's day off and he is calling me to get ready.....

My 30 30 emails have become wonky. I'm getting double emails; one set current, one set has started me over. I'm not sure what that's all about.

Anyone on day 24? It's a good one! I'm not going to mention what is for those that aren't on this day, but I'd love to hear what people think when they get to it. :)

Isn't that such a major blessing to know these things.

The Christians that I know that are miserable don't see who God made them. They are only seeing problems plus their circumstances

Tonight is Bible study and it's over and hour and a half so I'll be home late about 9:30. We start at 7:30. So at least I get in my Bible reading for the day. That is what Joyce wants us to do read the Bible.

I'm so glad Joyce encourages us to be in the word daily with more 30/30 challenges. I hope you're reaching your Godly goals this week.

In researching a biblical phrase, "I am the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21) I hear repeated by Joyce Meyer and several other wonderful evangelists, I came across this gem from Joyce:

Knowing Who I Am in Christ
by Joyce Meyer

Not sure who you really are? Read this list of Biblical truths that reveal who God made you to be.

I am complete in Him Who is the Head of all principality and power (Colossians 2:10).

I am alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:5).

I am free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2).

I am far from oppression, and fear does not come near me (Isaiah 54:14).

I am born of God, and the evil one does not touch me (1 John 5:18).

I am holy and without blame before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4; 1 Peter 1:16).

I have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16; Philippians 2:5).

I have the peace of God that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7).

I have the Greater One living in me; greater is He Who is in me than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).

I have received the gift of righteousness and reign as a king in life by Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17).

I have received the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus, the eyes of my understanding being enlightened (Ephesians 1:17-18).

I have received the power of the Holy Spirit to lay hands on the sick and see them recover, to cast out demons, to speak with new tongues. I have power over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means harm me (Mark 16:17-18; Luke 10:17-19).

I have put off the old man and have put on the new man, which is renewed in the knowledge after the image of Him Who created me (Colossians 3:9-10).

I have given, and it is given to me; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, men give into my bosom (Luke 6:38).

I have no lack for my God supplies all of my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

I can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one with my shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16).

I can do all things through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:13).

I show forth the praises of God Who has called me out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9).

I am Gods child for I am born again of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God, which lives and abides forever (1 Peter 1:23).

I am Gods workmanship, created in Christ unto good works (Ephesians 2:10).

I am a new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).

I am a spirit being alive to God (Romans 6:11;1 Thessalonians 5:23).

I am a believer, and the light of the Gospel shines in my mind (2 Corinthians 4:4).

I am a doer of the Word and blessed in my actions (James 1:22,25).

I am a joint-heir with Christ (Romans 8:17).

I am more than a conqueror through Him Who loves me (Romans 8:37).

I am an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony (Revelation 12:11).

I am a partaker of His divine nature (2 Peter 1:3-4).

I am an ambassador for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20).

I am part of a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people (1 Peter 2:9).

I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).

I am the temple of the Holy Spirit; I am not my own (1 Corinthians 6:19).

I am the head and not the tail; I am above only and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13).

I am the light of the world (Matthew 5:14).

I am His elect, full of mercy, kindness, humility, and longsuffering (Romans 8:33; Colossians 3:12).

I am forgiven of all my sins and washed in the Blood (Ephesians 1:7).

I am delivered from the power of darkness and translated into Gods kingdom (Colossians 1:13).

I am redeemed from the curse of sin, sickness, and poverty (Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Galatians 3:13).

I am firmly rooted, built up, established in my faith and overflowing with gratitude (Colossians 2:7).

I am called of God to be the voice of His praise (Psalm 66:8; 2 Timothy 1:9).

I am healed by the stripes of Jesus (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24).

I am raised up with Christ and seated in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6; Colossians 2:12).

I am greatly loved by God (Romans 1:7; Ephesians 2:4; Colossians 3:12; 1 Thessalonians 1:4).

I am strengthened with all might according to His glorious power (Colossians 1:11).

I am submitted to God, and the devil flees from me because I resist him in the Name of Jesus (James 4:7).

I press on toward the goal to win the prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward (Philippians 3:14).

For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).

It is not I who live, but Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20).

I'm a little late getting to the information, but what a terrible situation! Was he a good friend to you? Was he going through financial issues? The newspaper articles are very limited or contradicting in information. The first thought that came to me was possession.?? But perhaps it was due to the medication?
What a horrible shock for everyone knowing them. And of course mainly for his wife and her family.

I'm finding some days of the 3030 challenge better than others and often wanting to do my own study.

The daily Bible reading is going well. Same as the daily devotions. Todays devotion was allowing God to plow/clear the garbage out of our hearts, but it's our job to maintain it and keep the weeds cleared. So we can be used by Him. Great devotions today.

Last night I was watching a documentary that turned into a Bible study on revelations.

Don't worry cause she was a christian and loved the Lord with all her heart. It's still a night mare to me and I can't believe she is gone but the Lord our God has her in His care right now.
I read the psalms 139 and it was really good.

Day 6
I read part of Chapter 19 of Matthew the 12th. So much about healing if we have faith.
Only the religious Pharisees rejected him.
When I finished the chapter I just cried as I felt the arms of the Lord around my back.
He is healing me. I prayed for others also.

Don't worry about it cause I've been reading my Bible and also praying for my friend that got strangle from her husband last Thursday along with her mom and brothers and sisters. It's still a shock that I have to hear this from another girlfriend and now her husband has a 2 million dollar bond over his head. It's in the Tacoma News Tribune under about a husband strangled his wife today so I'll be making copies for my oldest daughter and another friend of mine.

I'm the one who joined the challenge and told you so I'm glad that you put it on this team.
Still upset with my friend who killed his wife and I'm praying for him and her family. But I've been studying my Bible everyday so I would know what to look for if anyone asks me.

I'm on day 8.
Sorry for my delay in joining on this thread. I didn't understand the previous posts on the other thread on what to join.

I think you're right about the opinion people have of the law and the assumption of living under grace possibly being understood or interpreted by some that we don't have as much responsibility or accountability? We may not have the same restrictions on food or sacrificial offerings, but we do have commandments to abide.

Awesome! I do a daily devotional study with prayer, along with a once a week community group. I also have the Our Daily Bread app and Jesus Calling app that I plug into mid-day or sitting in the pick up line at my daughter's school. While at work or driving I listen to Air1 radio (online) which also keeps me focused on His word.

Day 2 The 9th I did read and meditate and pray for over 30 minutes. I am in some of the goodies, the sermon on the mount. It is more strict than the law. People say we are not under the law but Jesus requires even more
