Jesus Calling

Learn to listen to Me even while you are listening to other people. As they open their souls to your scrutiny, you are on holy ground. You need the help of My Spirit to respond appropriately. Ask Him to think through you, live through you, love through you. My own Being is alive within you in the Person of the Holy Spirit. If you respond to others’ needs through your unaided thought processes, you offer them dry crumbs. When the Spirit empowers your listening and speaking, My streams of living water flow through you to other people. Be a channel of My Love, Joy, and Peace by listening to Me as you listen to others.

“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
—Exodus 3:5

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.
—1 Corinthians 6:19

Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
—John 7:38–39

Our Daily Walk

GIVING GOD PLEASURE

“The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear Him.”
Psa 147:11.

GOD TAKES pleasure in our faith. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him”; but surely the alternative is true, that our faith is precious in His sight, though it be only as the touch of the hem of His garment.

God works in us to will and to do of His good pleasure. The Apostle says that we ought to walk so as to please God. How can we walk thus? It is not within our power. But how blessed to know that if only we will work out what He works in, and abandon ourselves to Him, He will perfect us in every good work to do His will (Heb 13:21).

There are many ways in which we may please God. Generosity is a sacrifice well-pleasing and acceptable unto God; obedience is well-pleasing unto the Lord; a holy and humble walk with God, like Enoch’s, will elicit this testimony, that it has pleased God. Let us not disappoint Him, but “walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing.”

PRAYER

O God, we pray that Thou wouldst make us what Thou wouldst have us become, that we may perfectly please Thee, and worthily magnify Thy Holy Name. AMEN.

Morning Prayer

SEEK GOD’S COUNSEL
1 Kings 22:5; Psalm 10:4; Isaiah 11:2-3; 30:1

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Today

I pray that in all that God leads you to undertake, you will seek first the counsel of the Lord. May you never execute your plans without His guidance. Remember that only the proud do not seek Him or make room for Him in their plans. I pray that you will know that those who hide their plans from the Lord heap sin and despair. As you seek the Lord, may His Spirit rest upon you. May the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and power be always with you. Then, as you make your plans in accordance with God’s will, I declare that He will bless you and prosper you beyond your expectations.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

 

Truth For Today

GOD’S STABILITY

The Father of lights, with whom
there is no variation or shadow of turning.
JAMES 1 : 17

James called God “the Father of lights,” which was an ancient Jewish reference to God as the Creator. James chose that title because it fit his illustration of God.

The lights are the sun, moon, and stars—celestial bodies created by God. From our perspective, the sun, moon, and stars move, disappear, change in shape, or vary in intensity—their benefit to us comes and goes. But with God there is no variation or shifting. God doesn’t change from one condition to another or shift like shadows as the sun moves. His brilliant light of glory and gracious goodness does not fade. His grace never goes dark. First John 1:5 says, “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” Malachi 3:6 says, “I am the Lord, I do not change.”

God’s mercy never ceases. Nothing can eclipse His goodness or stop His benevolence. Knowing that, don’t take the devil’s bait and give birth to deadly sin. Rather, receive the good that God wants to give you.

Note From The Pope

Evening Prayer

How blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord and does not seek help from the proud or from liars!
Ps 40:4 NET

And yet thou canst know,
And yet thou canst not see;
Wisdom and sight are slow
In poor humanity.
If thou couldst trust, poor soul,
In Him who rules the whole,
Thou wouldst find peace and rest;
Wisdom and right are well, but trust is best.
– Adelaide Anne Procter

The heart to speak in vain essayed,
Nor could his purpose reach—
His will nor voice nor tongue obeyed,
His silence was his speech.
– John Quincy Adams

But still believe that story wrong
Which ought not to be true.
– Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Prayer

My Father, may I not be given to unkindly speech. Deliver me from a critical spirit; and may I not encourage mistrust, but cultivate the kindly considerations in which life abounds. Amen.
