The best things we can be doing in our day is seeking the Lord in His Word and in prayer, while then doing what He says.
So what does it look like to trust in God with our whole heart? Well, it means doing as He commands us and giving up things that are holding us back from following Him. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray for every marriage that is struggling right now. You are our healer and have the power to bring restoration to it. Marriage is hard enough when we have financial issues, but when love is missing, that can really be difficult. And I know, Lord, how important love really is, in order to carry on in a marriage. Since divorce is never a good option, that must mean that You can take every bad situation and breathe new life into it. We can't make things right on our own, but through Your strength and mighty power are we healed. So I pray for a complete restoration in my marriage also. May my spouse fully surrender to You, that You may pour into her as You pour into me daily. I know that You can do all things and can bring the love we once had back in full strength. Surely some people say that it only takes two in a marriage for things to get better, but I know that this is false. It takes three, because only by You and Your mighty hand can anything get better. It is when the person in the wrong cries out to You in their confessions, do they see what evil state they are in and repent. This turning away from sin and unto You is what saves them and their marriage from hard ache and divorce. So I pray for Your conviction to enter every spouses heart that is causing a rift in their marriage. They surely are not right with You, if they are doing this. And if it both spouses that need to work on things, lead them to know what to do, in order for things to get better. Your counsel is greater than our own or what we can receive from people. I love You and respect Your counsel for my life. I am happier and there is more love in my life and others when I honor You. Amen.
Matthew 5:31,32 (KJV)
31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
For love to be restored in a marriage, it takes both spouses to abide in the Lord's love. Then, will they learn how to forgive.
Counseling is an option when our marriage is on the rocks. This is especially true if your spouse is willing to go down this road. Re-courting our spouse also helps. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, thank You for anointing Your people and myself with the gift of the Holy Spirit. We are so lost without You and are truly grateful to have true direction in this life. Every time we come to You, we find counsel and wisdom and are so humbled to receive it. Thank You for giving us knowledge and leading us on your path of righteousness. This is what we need to be happy. There is hope, because You have us by the hand and are leading us now. Apart from You, there is no joy, but only guilt and shame. We can find joy for a time, but it never lasts and are always back trying to find something better in life that will fulfil our lusts. These types of feelings are so destructive and never lead me to happiness, Lord. I am only more desirous of things that I don't have and need and covetousness enters my wicked heart. So Lord, I pray that I may never be ruled over by the flesh again. Instead, I pray that You will lead me and guide me. My desire is to have you build me up with Your strength and not my own any longer. From this day forward, will follow You and not just say I believe. It is my true desire to make You Lord of my life and have You remove anything that is causing a right in our relationship. So may there be less of me and more of You in my life. Only by abiding in You can I ever experience what true joy is like. You are my King and I come to You now in honor and praise. I exalt Your holy Name, Jesus. Please help me know what to do now and I will do more than listen, but follow Your every footsteps. It is with great pleasure to do whatsoever You command me. I love You Lord. Amen.
1 Samuel 16:6,7 (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him.
7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
The Lord Jesus wants to anoint you with the Spirit. So make Him Lord of your life and the Holy Spirit will come like fire.
It was after David got the calling from God to be King, that God’s anointing was removed from Saul. So the Spirit of God left him and an evil spirit found rout in Saul’s heart instead. Continue Reading
John 15:12-14 (KJV)
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Only Jesus can cleanse us from all our sins. So repent and turn to Him today. The Lord is waiting.
Abide in Jesus. Don't let a day go by without seeking Him in prayer, reading the Bible, and by doing what He commands us to do.
Oh how I love Jesus! He has blessed my life more than I can even count. Thank You Lord for using me through your mighty hand.
Philippians 2:5-8 (KJV)
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Jesus is my Lord. He is my God and my Savior. I am grateful to be washed clean through His blood. The cross has changed my life.
