Only A Few Miracles

And so he did only a few miracles there because of their unbelief.

~ Matthew 13:58 [NLT]

Don’t wait for miracles to happen to jump start your faith. It starts with just the slightest itch for a greater purpose in life.  Don’t let the Creator of your life pass by because of your unbelief.  Have a hard time believing, but want to believe?  It’s okay.  Make a step in the right direction – listen to a Christian radio station, check out a sermon online, read an inspiring faith based book.

Our Daily Walk

Our Heritage And Our Goal

Ye are come unto the City of the living God … to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus the Mediator of the New Covenant.

~ Heb 12:22-24

We are far from being perfect. When in our deepest moments, we ascend into the Holiest, on the wings of faith and prayer, we pass through a vast host of sympathetic spirits, all of whom are devoted to the same Lord and Master, and are joining in the same act of worship. Many of them have known and helped us in our earthly life, and they have been sent forth to minister to us, and to help us on our way. “Ye are come to the spirits of just men made perfect.”

We are also come unto God, the Judge of all. When Moses stood before God on the Mount, he said: “I exceedingly fear and quake.” But we may come with boldness to the footstool of the Eternal Throne, though our God is a consuming fire, for in Christ Jesus we stand accepted. He is the Mediator of the New Covenant, and His Blood speaks better things than that of Abel. That blood cried against Cain. But the Blood of Jesus cries on our behalf; it has opened the way into the Holiest; has cleansed us from our sins; has ratified the New Covenant, and is the Pledge of our redemption.

Therefore, although we realise our sinfulness and imperfection, let us arise into the unseen, and join with the One Church of the Redeemed in heaven and on earth. We are come to it in the purpose of God, and by the all-sufficing work of Christ our Lord, but let us see to it that we come also in our spiritual realization, communion, and fellowship.

We are members of the Church Universal, citizens of the Heavenly City. Heirs of that precious Redemption, which has severed us from things that are seen, and made us part of that blessed throng that no man can number—“the general Assembly and Church of the First-born, which are written in heaven.” Neither life, nor death, nor rite, nor church-order, can divide those who are for ever one with each other because they are one with Christ. Nothing but sin and obtuseness of soul can exclude us from living fellowship with saints of all communions and sects, denominations and ages.

Accept our thanks, O God, for this foretaste of the bliss of Paradise. To Thee we would pour forth our tribute of adoring love, and join with angels and the spirits of the Redeemed in worship. Unto Him that sitteth upon the Throne, and unto the Lamb, be blessing and honour, glory and dominion, for ever. Amen.

Share Each Other’s Burdens

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2 [NLT]

We were designed for community, for intimacy, and relationship. Isolation is one way the enemy-of-our-souls begins to deceive us into believing we are not seen or loved by God. Are you making an effort to share the burdens of the people in your life that you know are hurting? Afraid? Isolated? Scared? Depressed? Reach out and remind them that God has not forgotten them in this difficult season.

Morning Prayer

THE GOVERNMENT OF JESUS 
Isaiah 9:6-7

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

May you understand that God’s will is for government to rest on Christ’s shoulders. Proclaim that Jesus Christ is the perfect Ruler. I pray that you will proclaim Him as the Wonderful Counselor and the Prince of Peace. May you always pray that all rulers and governments will submit to His lordship, so that peace, justice and righteousness will reign. I declare that out of the increase of His government and peace, there will be no end.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Morning Prayer

GOD’S INFINITE WISDOM
Daniel 2:19-23

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

I pray that when you lift up your requests to God today, you will trust in His infinite wisdom. Praise God always, for He knows what is best for you. May you rely on Him, for He knows the times and seasons that you are going through. May He reveal deep and hidden things by His infinite wisdom, so that you can accomplish the tasks ahead. I pray that you will know deep in your heart that His wisdom is infinite, so trust His answers to your prayers. May God impart wisdom upon you so you will understand His answer, His timing and His ways.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Whisper

And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper.

~ 1 Kings 19:12 [NLT]

The story that is being told in 1 Kings is about Elijah running from his enemies.  He is upset with God and meets him in the wilderness.  When God is ready to speak to him there was an earthquake, then a windstorm, and a fire but God was not in these mighty displays.  Next comes a gentle whisper and that was God.  We often look for mighty signs as proof that God is speaking in our lives but we miss it because God is in the whisper.  Quiet your heart and mind and open your ears to hear God’s gentle voice. 

Morning Prayer

REPENT AND TURN AWAY 
Jeremiah 3:19; Ezekiel 18:30; 2 Timothy 2:19; James 4:7-8

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

I pray that you will have an understanding of the inheritance that awaits a child of God. May you realize that by following the Father, peace, blessings and prosperity await you. On the other hand, may you realize that a life which continues in sin only leads to downfall. I pray that you will repent and turn away from all sin. May you confess the name of the Lord and reject all forms of wickedness. Resist sin and come near to God, and experience the glory and joy of a life in Him.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Stronger Than You Think 🤔

The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

~ 1 Corinthians 10:13 [NLT]

Temptations can range from seemingly harmless distractions to life threatening addictions and everything in between. Where does yours fit in? The irony is that this one thing that is so personal to you is a struggle for many others too. Remember that you are not alone in many ways. Trust in God and lean on Him for the strength to overcome them each day. Only He can make you stronger than you think.
