John 4:13,14 (KJV)
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
If you are a follower of Christ and made righteous through Him, then you also help the poor and needy. Where do you stand?
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, may we all become righteous in You today. Help everyone understand what this means, that they may turn from their sins and repent. I know that many people have been found disregarding the needs of the poor but still call themselves Christian. This saddens me to see people feel that they are secure in their faith when there is no love for those in need. When you said that the righteous feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked and visit the sick and in prison, I am listening. I know that doing these things are what true Christians do and are like, because You said it. We are not just to believe but live out our faith as Your Word says. And if our lives are not doing these things now, we ought to repent, that Your Holy Spirit will come in and change us. We know that we are incapable of doing these things to the fullest extent but with You in our lives, we can do all things. Even when we are short on time, if there is a need and we are prompted, we are willing to drop it all for You and care for that one person in need. It is for Your glory God. It is not to make us look good but to benefit the lives of those around us. Our love for You is what extends into the people's around us. Thank You Lord. I love You. Amen.
As we repent and come to God for mercy, we are willing to give up our old ways and live for Him. Continue Reading
Proverbs 29:11-13 (KJV)

6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.
We are wise only when we are being led by God. Trust in the Lord and your eyes will be opened to the truth and gain divine wisdom.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, help us all to set the proper priorities in this life. May our desires be for You and not what our flesh wants. Help us stay on the right track, that we may not fall victim to the wickedness of this world. It may seem so right to a person to become rich and gain all the luxuries they've ever wanted. It is understandable, since most people assume that happiness comes with money. However, trusting in the world will fail them and I worry about these people God. I know that many people are like this and if they do not repent, then they will be stripped of all their happiness come judgement day. I pray Lord that You will prick the hearts of the rich, that they may be humble. I also pray for those people that are in the world now and are seeking happiness in all the wrong places. May they also wake up to their sins and repent today. May these people turn from their sins and have faith in You. Then, lead them to those people in the faith, that we may fellowship with us. May we be a light to the new believers. Help us know us show love to them and everyone around us. Even the poor, help us to never neglect them but ever help them. I pray that we will be ready to always respond favorably to Your cause. May we be listening to the Holy Spirit and always desire to be led by You, God. I trust in You. My hope is in You. I love You. Amen.
One day, every rich person that does not have the Lord’s blessings in their lives, will be cut off forever from all happiness and joy. Continue Reading
Proverbs 28:27 (KJV)
27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
Proverbs 28:25,26 (KJV)
25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the Lord shall be made fat.
26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
Proverbs 28:18 (KJV)
18 Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
Why go the length of hiding your sins when God knows all? Come clean with Him today in confession. The Lord is waiting.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that more people will give into Your counsel and repent. When they are convicted of their faults may they act on those feelings and pray. May they realize how wicked they have become, and desire a true change of heart. I pray that confessions will come out of their mouth and that their soul will long to be better. That they may finally become right in Your presence. Break the hardness of their hearts, this day. Come and break down the walls that they have put up. May their shame and guilt bring them to a point of brokenness, that they may find You, even at their lowest point in life. I know that when we are broken, there is also humility. There is a heartfelt seeking for something greater. When we discover that what we are doing does not bring lasting happiness but only pain, is when things start to change. May this realization of something better come to these people's minds today. Help them see past themselves and seek You out with their whole hearts. I know that all peace, joy, happiness and love comes from You. And that these people that are lost can be restored into Your fold Your blood can cover anyone that calls upon Your Name, Jesus. I trust in You, Lord. You are my hope and my salvation. I love You. Amen.
