Remain

Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.
~ John 15:4 [NLT]

Where does the good fruit of our lives come from?  Only from the Lord! When we rest in Him our lives produce good things. Remain in Him and watch new goodness grow out of your life.

The Quiet One

But Moses pleaded with the Lord, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.”
~ Exodus 4:10 [NLT]

In a culture that promotes extroversion, people who are introverted can get drowned out. If you are an introvert, remember that you have special abilities such as listening, creativity, compassion and a peacefulness that spreads to others. Like Moses, you can be a great leader too. Seek God in your quiet time and allow Him to use your unique talents to do His will. 

Evening Prayer

GLORIFY GOD IN YOUR FAMILY 
Joshua 24:15; Colossians 3:18-21

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

I speak the blessing of God over you and your family. I pray that everyone in your family will know Christ and live their lives for Him. I pray each member of your family will be rooted in God’s Word and will live in a manner that glorifies Him. May every member of your household fulfill their God-given role in a way that will please Him. I declare that you and your household will be saved, and that you will choose to serve the Lord.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Of Reunion With Glorified Spirits

What is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

~ 1 Thess 2:19

We soon shall join the throng,

Their pleasures we shall share,

And sing the everlasting song

With all the ransom’d there:

Hallelujah!

We are on our way to God.

He Knows

These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
~ Matthew 6:32 [NLT]

When worry starts to overrun our minds we are functioning as unbelievers.  Worry shows that we don’t understand our status in the family of God.  God cares about the temporary things like the flowers. God will take even better care of you! We are called to trust God with our lives.  When we start to worry rather than acting like an unbeliever instead bring your need to God and trust that He will provide.
