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.

THE LORD’S MIRACLES 
Psalm 113:5-9

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

I pray that you will recognize the power of God to change a person’s circumstances. May you look to Him, for He can raise the poor from the dust and lift the needy from an ash heap. May you trust in Him, for He can settle the barren woman in a home as a happy mother of children. Praise God, for nothing is impossible with Him. I pray that you will recognize the miracles He performs in your life. May you believe that He has the will and the power to make your situation better. I pray that you will continue to be thankful as you experience His power and miracles this day!

Jesus Lives

Peace

I am your Sunrise from on high! While you were still sitting in darkness and the shadow of death, My Light shone upon you—giving you a reason to live, a reason to hope. Now you are Mine, and you can approach Me confidently because of My tender mercy. My heart is full of unfailing Love for you; it overflows from My heart into yours. As you receive good things from Me with thanksgiving, you experience rich soul-satisfaction. I want you to sing for Joy and be glad in response to all that I give you. You can relax and enjoy My Presence since you know I am taking care of you. In your time of need, I will provide mercy and grace to help you.

I want you to enjoy not only My Presence but also My Peace. I came into your world to guide your feet into the way of Peace. When you are anxious or fearful, it is as if you are doubting My promises to supply all you need. My followers tend to think of worry as natural, even inevitable. At worst, they consider it their personal problem or quirk—harming no one but themselves. But the truth is, your tendency to be anxious grieves Me. Awareness of My pain can help motivate you to break free from this hurtful habit. Seek to bring Me Joy by walking trustingly with Me along the path of Peace.

Because of the tender mercy of our God, with which the Sunrise from on high shall visit us, to shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

~ Luke 1:78–79 [NASB]

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

~ Psalm 90:14

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

~ Philippians 4:19 [NASB]

Gratitude Attitude

Deuteronomy 16:13-17 [NKJV]
The Feast of Tabernacles Reviewed

13 “You shall observe the Feast of Tabernacles seven days, when you have gathered from your threshing floor and from your winepress. 14 And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant and the Levite, the stranger and the fatherless and the widow, who are within your gates. 15 Seven days you shall keep a sacred feast to the Lord your God in the place which the Lord chooses, because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you surely rejoice.

16 “Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed. 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.

Research has shown that, in America, people in the bottom twenty percent of income brackets give a higher percentage of their income to charity than those who are in the highest twenty percent of income brackets. The wealthier may give larger amounts of money, but the lower earners give a higher percentage. Jesus noticed the difference between amount and percentage one day at the temple—and pointed out which was more commendable.

People were putting offerings in the temple treasury containers. The wealthy were putting in large gifts out of their wealth—that is, gifts that required no sacrifice—when a poor widow came up and deposited two tiny coins: “her whole livelihood.” Jesus commended the poor widow for her generosity and sacrifice, while declining to commend the wealthy in the same way. The wealthy gave more money, but the widow gave more heart.

Let your gifts to God and others reflect an attitude of gratitude for all He has given you.
The essence of Christian ethics is gratitude.

~ R. C. Sproul

His Glory

They were calling out to each other, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with his glory!”
~ Isaiah 6:3 [NLT]

Today is a day of remembering our blessings and giving thanks for all we have. If you have a hard time thinking of blessings in this world, there are many around you. God’s unending love for you and another day on this earth are but a few of our blessings. Don’t forget that we need to give praise and glory to God for all we are blessed with. He is the ultimate source.
