REMEMBER HIS TEACHINGS
Proverbs 3:1-4

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

I pray that you will never forget the Lord’s teachings, but will keep them in your heart. Remember His commands, for they will prolong your life and bring you prosperity. I pray that you will never let love and faithfulness leave you. May you bind them around your neck and write them on the tablet of your heart, then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. I pray that you will always remember His teachings, and that His favor will go with you.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Bible Verse

“And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it.”
‭‭

~ Luke‬ ‭9:23-24‬ ‭[NASB1995‬‬]

Watch What You Do

I said to myself, “I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will hold my tongue when the ungodly are around me.”

~ Psalm 39:1 [NLT]

Righteous living is a choice. We don’t stop sinning without taking action. Watch what you do and think about the choices you are making. Do they honor God? Are they showing love towards others? Are you being salt and light to those who may be ungodly around you? If your answers don’t point to Jesus, it’s time to take action so you do not sin in what you say and do.

Bible Verse

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved– and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

~ Ephesians 2:4-7

Daily Wisdom

“To be carnally-minded is death; but to be spiritually-minded is life and peace.”

~ Rom 8:6

Just in proportion as our heart and affections are engaged on heavenly objects, shall we feel a sweet savor of heaven resting upon our spirit; and as we can only give back what we receive, every going forth of divine life from the soul below is but the fruit and effect of the incoming of that life from above. Christ is our life above (Col. 3:4); and as he by his Spirit and grace maintains the life of faith in the soul, it manifests itself in gracious actings upon himself. Without this spirituality of mind, religion is but a mere name, an empty mask, a delusion, and a snare.

God does not take into heaven, into the fullness of his own eternal bliss, those whom he does not love, and who do not love him. It is a prepared people for prepared mansions. And this preparedness for heaven, as an inward grace, much consists in that sweet spirituality of mind whereby heavenly things become our only happiness, and an inward delight is felt in them, that enlarges the heart, ennobles the mind, softens the spirit, and lifts the whole soul, as it were, up into a holy atmosphere in which it bathes as its choice element.

This is “life,” not the cold, dead profession of those poor carnal creatures who have only a ‘natural faith’ in the Lord Jesus Christ and the truths of his gospel; but that blessed life which shall never die, but live in the eternal presence of God when earth and all it holds shall be wrapped in the devouring flames. And it is “peace”-the Redeemer’s dying legacy-whereby, as he himself fulfils it, he calms the troubled waves of the soul, stills every rebellious movement, and enthrones himself in the heart as the Prince of peace.

PROTECTION FROM EVIL
Proverbs 4:25-27; Isaiah 54:17

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

I pray for God’s protection to be upon you today. May no weapon forged against you prevail. I pray that you will fix your eyes on Jesus, for His ways keep us protected. May you never swerve to the right or the left so that you may keep your foot from evil. May God make level paths for your feet and may you only take the ways that are firm. May God give you grace to avoid the rocky paths of unrighteousness and walk on the firm ground of righteousness. May you enjoy the abundant peace of God’s protection today.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
