You Have To Forgive Yourself

The Lord spoke this to me while waiting for prayer at a service.  It hadn’t occurred to me yet, because I was focusing on forgiving the other person.

“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

Ephesians 4:29-32 (NKJV)

“Love your neighbor as yourself,” says Jesus, Mark 12:31 

“Submitting to one another in the fear of God.” Ephesians 5:21

God is Everything

A song sung during an Alaskan mission trip at the park.  It encouraged me because all the other singers performed secular music and I was so far from home and felt lonely, even though I was amongst other believers.

“God made everything with a place and purpose; even the wicked are included – but for judgment.” Proverbs 16:4 (The Message).

“For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16 (NIV).

I will extol You, my God, O King; And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable.

One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts.
I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works.
Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, And I will declare Your greatness.
They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, And shall sing of Your righteousness.

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy.
The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.

All Your works shall praise You, O Lord, And Your saints shall bless You.
They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, And talk of Your power,
To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, And the glorious majesty of His kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.

The Lord upholds all who fall, And raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look expectantly to You, And You give them their food in due season.
You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.
The Lord preserves all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh shall bless His holy name Forever and ever.

Psalm 145 (NKJV)

Step In

Step up, clear your calendars, clear the air. Give the Lord, Who is worthy, your praise, your time, the honor due Him. Make room for Him. He will anoint you to preach the Gospel.

“A noise will come to the ends of the earth – for the Lord has a controversy with the nations; He will plead His case with all flesh.  He will give those who are wicked to the sword,’ says the Lord.”  Jeremiah 25:31 (NKJV).

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.” Psalm 23:5 (NKJV).

Sunday Worship

The Lord had been speaking to me to request Sundays off work so that I can worship God with my new husband.  It began as a desire and I tossed it around with others saying it’s not just me that matters and I want to be there for him.

Then last week, the Lord prompted me to really call the Manager. I felt tense and reluctant, bracing for their pushback.  Finally, close to the end of the day I called, the Holy Spirit facilitating my tactful request.  The answer was acquiesced kindly.

Isaiah 54:17 (NKJV):

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord”

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” says Jesus in John 4:24 (NKJV).

“I Will Sustain You”

Heard this from the Lord when I contemplated how long a fast to go on.  In the past recent years it wasn’t more than 2 days at a time.

We heard special first of the year messages, but I’d missed my usual beginning of the year fast and special Bible readings.  Holy Spirit doesn’t work on our time schedule and I was feeling a loose end.

God will answer you just as well, He is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34).

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8

Jesus says,When you fast…” (Matt 6).

“30 Minutes”

The Lord spoke those words one morning, as a friend gave me directions to the cemetery where we planned to do lawn maintenance.  Surprisingly, it had taken exactly 30 minutes to get there.  The Lord’s words aren’t always for the exact day that you hear them.

Last week, K-Love Radio told about a study noting the average person has 32 minutes of downtime per day and asking the audience how they spend their free time.  The same day, Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) showed an article where a married couple uses 30 minutes a day to pray together.

Hallelujah, Lord God, open our ears, help us to quiet our thoughts and be receptive to Your words, O Lord, for all Your planting is good. Near or far, all Your words have life and purpose, help us to trust You always. In Jesus’ name.

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass … Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.—Psalm 37:4,7 (see Guidepost.org: https://www.guideposts.org/faith-and-prayer/bible-resources/quiet-your-mind-with-hope-and-faith).

Relationships

Relationships come in packages of potential, not perfection, according to author Lisa Terkeurst.

Pastor Derek Prince said, God allowed Adam to feel the lack so he could appreciate Eve.  God provided Eve to Adam.

Steve Harvey said when you make a mistake, admit it, own up to it, and get past it.  That’s how you grow.

Holy Spirit: he has to work through it, he’ll come around.

Proverbs 17:17, a friend loves at all times.

Luke 6:31, Jesus said, do unto others as you would have them do to you.

Colossians 3:13-14, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

James 5:16, “Confess your sins to one another and pray for each other”

 

I Ain’t Got Time For That

The manager who called us out in the field only to complain or say something negative would sometimes get a click in his ear.  This hanging up was addressed at the meeting when my co-worker stated the above sentiment.

Same for Satan, who’s up to his old tricks.

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”

Lord, You’re always good, always true, I magnify Your name and personality in my life! I love Your word! Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path (Ps 119-105). So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom (Ps 90:12).

Freedom

is scary.  Letting loose.  We don’t know what we’ll be like.

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is,” 1 John 3:2.

“But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.  Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away,” 2 Corinthians 3:15-16.

“Where the Spirit for the Lord is, there is Liberty,” 2 Corinthians 3:17.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9, (NIV).

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus,”  Philippians 4:7. (Thank you, Friend)

“The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.” Hebrews 11:1 (The Message).
