Good morning...March 10, 2014...Today is a spiritual buffet. There are portions of Scripture that are more than a single serving of spiritual food, they are an entire buffet. Those are my thoughts on Ephesians 3:14-19. Read it more than once throughout your day, but not from this site, rather from your Bible. Make it personal!
Ephesians 3:14-19..."For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have the power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know His love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
God bless you richly!
Good morning...March 8, 2014...Humility is a wonderful quality to possess. Paul in Ephesians states his humility though he was a leader and quite well known, he never forgot the grace extended to him from God.
Ephesians 3:8 states..."Although I am less than the least of all God's people, this grace was given to me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ." WOW!
Grace changes our lives!
Grace is underserved!
Grace is available!
Grace is God giving us His best when we are at our worst!
Be encouraged today, because probably at some point grace will be necessary and thank God there is plenty to go around! Have a great day.
Good morning...March 6, 2014...Today we each have the opportunity know Jesus better. This is an incredible thought for my mind. How might I accomplish this?
Ephesians 1:17 states..."I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better." WOW
Wisdom and revelation on the topic of Jesus from the Holy Spirit based on the Bible is our starting point and ending point.
My encouragement for us, is to spend time in the Bible today UNTIL we can say, "I know my Lord better today than I did yesterday."
From this, a testimony grows and comes to life because it is fresh and alive and current and active and real! Have a great day.
Good morning...March 4, 2014...LOVE GOD is my theme for this morning!
The Bible states in Luke 10:27..."And He answered and said, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.'" WOW!
Throughout this day be mindful of ways you can be loving God. Allow me to encourage you to think in terms of heart, soul, mind and strength.
I encourage you to love God with your affection, with your spirit, with your thoughts, with your actions.
Then, I encourage you to love others because you love God so much.
Also, I encourage you to love yourself too! We sometimes are too hard on ourselves beating ourselves up unnecessarily. And remember to have a great day!
Good morning--Saturday, March 1, 2014...Psalm 139:18b states..."When I awake, I am still with Thee."
It is comforting, reassuring, and very encouraging to know that when I am sleeping God is not!
It is comforting, reassuring, and encouraging to know that when we wake up, our very first person to greet us is not a pet or a spouse or a child, it is God!
The Garden of Eden was taken away from us, not God! He still wants to walk with you throughout this day. Have an awesome day with God!
