Oh Lord, I pray that we will all remember the importance of being honest to ourselves and others. May we understand that importance of telling the truth in all circumstances, no matter how difficult it may seem. For it is better to be a true witness, then a false witness who leads others astray. Thank You for Your words and teaching us this principal. In saying this Lord, I pray that You will lead us to all truth and lead us away from every false teacher. We need to know what is right in this world, and I know that You can lead us to find it. Truly, Your words in the Bible are truth and I wish that more people would teach what You have said and have less of their opinions on matters of God. Then, would more people be following You and not what they think is right. I pray Lord, that what is good is sought after in life, and what is evil is ran from. Now, I know that for this to become a reality, people need to first be instructed correctly. So I pray for all teachers in schools, universities and churches. They have a big calling upon them and I pray that they may be used by You in everything they do. To do this, it will take faith, but all evil can be distinguished by doing what You say is right. Lastly, help us to find a way to show kindness towards others, especially those in need. May your love flow deep in our hearts, that every person will feel loved. Kindness changes lives, just like Your compassion for us, changed ours. Thank You for taking us in as a stranger and giving us rest. I just pray that we will be doing the same for others. I love You Lord. Your teachings are nourishment to my ears. Amen.
Exodus 23:1,2 (KJV)
1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:
Stand apart from the wicked and in the light of Jesus. Seek and follow what is truth and stay away from every false teaching.
Our desires to help others in need is extended to our enemies as well. We go the extra mile, even though it may seem hard at first. Continue Reading
Lord God, I am truly honored to know You and to be called Your Son. The Spirit has taken over my life and led me to do things that I know I could not do on my own. For that reason, I give You thanks. You are so good to me God. Opportunities have come to me on a weekly basis because You love me so much and want to use me for Your kingdom. I love Your commands and to do Your will is amazing. There is so much joy in obeying You and allowing You to work through me. Because You have come inside of my life, I have had the opportunity to see many souls be saved. Thank You Jesus. What an amazing this it is to see Your miracles take place in my life and others. Truly, by seeking Your hand has led me to do things that I am not capable of on my own. This boldness is from You. This desire to share the gospel comes from You. This desire to fight against sin and to lift up Your Words in the Bible is because of You. I am not ashamed to tell anyone that I come in contact with that only You save, Jesus. You are my shield against the enemy and there is no other place I'd rather be then in Your hands. Thank You for leading me from temptation and to experience what true happiness is. I love You more than any earthly treasure.

Praise God. A lady I witnessed to on Friday night accepted the gospel and gave her life to Christ today Continue Reading
Lord, thank You for putting into my heart the desire to know You deeper than ever before. The day I found You in my confessions was the day that You came for me and started me off on a new path. Where I once desired to be fulfilled in my own lusts and covetousness, You gave me better desires that led to true satisfaction for the soul. I no longer needed the things of this world that were temporary, but Your will sustained me. Once I knew that I would never take any of my earthly treasures with me in death, I began to build myself up with what would sustain me in heaven that mattered most. I no longer needed the best new phone, tablet, TV, or car, or more money, for You have given me exactly what I need in this new life. Your presence is what gives me the greatest joy of all, which is true happiness. I don't need imitators in life, but what is true and faithful. What honors You is what I look for. That is why I grasp onto Your Words in the Bible. It is the treasure that I have been looking for all my life. I don't know what my life would be like if You were not leading me through Your Words. They have become a lamp unto my feet and I have true direction now. Your counsel is so good for my soul. I could never know enough of Your precepts, for they satisfy every minute of my life. Your laws are like honey to the soul. To know Your will is what leads me to hope for things that never end. And Thank You Lord for leading me away from temptation these many days. You have become the armor of my life and I am able to stand against the enemy. Thank You for defending me against the evils of this world and the storms of life. I love You more than ever now. You are my Lord and my God, who saves. I trust in You, God, alone. Amen.

142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
A life saved by the blood of Jesus is also a life of following in His ways. We do as He says because we love Him.
