Walk With The Wise

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.
~ Proverbs 13:20 [NLT]

We can all learn a thing or two from who we spend time with.  The question is whether the person we spend time with is making us a better person in turn.  When we are around others we begin to see different viewpoints, attitudes, and behaviors.  Over time, our minds embrace these thoughts which can make us either a healthier person or lead us down a foolish path.  Are you walking with wise people who share their wisdom to you? 

Evening Prayer

CHOOSING A NATION’S LEADERS 
Exodus 18:19-22; Psalm 33:12

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

I pray that you will bless your nation by selecting capable and trustworthy leaders who fear God; those who hate dishonest gain. May you teach the people God’s decrees and laws by being an example to them in the way you live. May you represent God properly. I pray that godly leaders may arise in your nation, for “blessed is the nation whose god is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance.” May you never cease praying for your leaders. I pray that you will be used by God for the advancement of His kingdom in your nation.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Jesus is Alive

They said his body was missing, and they had seen angels who told them Jesus is alive!
~ Luke 24:23 [NLT] 

Jesus is alive! We no longer have to live in fear of death because God came down and proved that death was not the end of the story for our lives.  God’s power goes beyond the grave and offers us an eternal hope.  Are you living like He is alive?  Like His power is real?  Pray and ask Jesus to breath resurrection life into your heart and the hearts of those who don’t know him yet around you.

Believer Forewarned of Sorrow

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

~  John 16:33

The path of sorrow, and that path alone,  
Leads to the land where sorrow is unknown.  
No traveller e’er reached that bless’d abode,  
Who found not thorns and briars in his road.
