THE LORD CARES FOR THE NEEDY

[Deuteronomy 15:11; Proverbs 14:31; 19:17; Isaiah 25:1,4]

I pray that you may have a heart of compassion for the poor and needy. As the Lord loves them, may you also show the same love by extending kindness to those in need. I pray that you will be open handed toward the poor and needy around you. May you learn to look beyond your own situation, and be sensitive to the needs of others. I pray that you will receive God’s promise of a reward to those who are kind to the poor.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Strength Today

So teach us to consider our mortality, so that we might live wisely.

[Ps 90:12]

So do not be overly concerned about what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not worry about such things.

[Luke 12:29]

~~~~~~

Our days are numbered: let us spare
Our anxious hearts a needless care:
’T is Thine to number out our days;
’T is ours to give them to Thy praise.

~ MADAME GUYON ~

 

Every day let us renew the consecration to God’s service; every day let us, in His strength, pledge ourselves afresh to do His will, even in the veriest trifle, and to turn aside from anything that may displease Him. He does not bid us bear the burdens of tomorrow, next week, or next year. Every day we are to come to Him in simple obedience and faith, asking help to keep us, and aid us through that day’s work; and to-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, through years of long to-morrows, it will be but the same thing to do; leaving the future always in God’s hands, sure that He can care for it better than we. Blessed trust! that can thus confidingly say, “This hour is mine with its present duty; the next is God’s, and when it comes, His presence will come with it.”

Look The Right Way!

LOOK THE RIGHT WAY! IN THE WORLD AROUND you, there are vistas of bright beauty as well as dark, ugly wastelands. When you look the right way—toward what is true, noble, lovely—you are encouraged and strengthened. I created you with a great capacity to enjoy beauty and goodness. Your soul resonates with these blessings, drawing strength from them.

As you go through this day, you will encounter things that make you cringe, things that are wrong or ugly. Deal with these as you must, but do not let them become your focus. Remember that I am with you, and listen to Me. Hear Me saying time after time, “Look the right way.”

There is beauty not only in the visible world but also in what is unseen. This world in its fallen condition can never satisfy you fully. You yearn for perfection, and I am the fulfillment of that deep longing. I am perfect in every way, yet I am able to stay close to you as you walk through this sin-stained world. So look the right way—toward blessings, toward Me—and the Joy of My Presence will shine upon you.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

[Philippians 4:8]

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”

[John 10:27]

The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.

[Numbers 6:25]

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

[Psalm 16:11]

🙏 Morning Prayer 🙏

Father God,

Sometimes I can hear You calling, but in that moment, I am trying to figure a way out, or looking for a way in, so I miss You. Today, I will slow down so that I can make every turn without bumping into the curbs in life.

Amen

“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath”.

[James 1:19]
