7/20/2017- God Morning Friends. Keep your heart and your mind on things from above and do not be deceived by the things from below: Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world— the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17 Satan tempt us with worldly gifts that do not last. God promises us Heavenly treasures that last forever. Who are you with?

But my righteous one will live by faith. If he shrinks back,I will not be pleased with Him.” We are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but those who believe and are saved.Hebrews 10:35-39
7/18/2017- God Morning Friends. Remember that it is only in humility that we may come before the Lord: All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

7/16/2017- God Morning Friends: This is what the Lord says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for Me? Where will my resting place be?

I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. For I too was a son to my father, still tender, and cherished by my mother. Then he taught me, and he said to me, Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the Lord. “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word. But whoever sacrifices a bull is like one who kills a person, and whoever offers a lamb is like one who breaks a dog’s neck; whoever makes a grain offering is like one who presents pig’s blood, and whoever burns memorial incense is like one who worships an idol. They have chosen their own ways, and they delight in their abominations; so I also will choose harsh treatment for them and will bring on them what they dread. For when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, no one listened. They did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me.” Isaiah 66:1-4 God does not show up in a building according to the schedule of the self righteous. God shows up in the hearts of the contrite who call on Him in humility.

6/17/2017- God Morning Friends. Let us break our fast from righteousness and eat the Heavenly food from above: “I am the bread of life.

All those the Father gives Me will come to Me, and whoever comes to Me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do My will but to do the will of Him who sent Me. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose none of all those He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” John 6:35-40

If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. John 15:18-20
6/13/2017- God Morning Friends. I pray that you are filled with the hope and the joy that comes through faith: Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers. Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction. Psalm 1
6/06-2017- God Morning Faithful. I pray that your soul thirsts for the pure water from Heaven and your feet are led along righteousness paths: “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?

6/02/2017- God Morning Friends. TGIF=Thank God I’m Free: “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:34-36 Indeed!
6/01/2017- Words for the wise: So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:6-8 The only way to avoid being deceived is to become an expert in the Gospel yourself, then you will know the truth and the truth will keep you free.
5/31/2017- Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

5/30/2017- God Morning Friends. Let us examine our ways and be humbled by the example of faith that is given in Christ, and press on toward Salvation: If you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His footsteps: 1 Peter 2:20-21 Don’t just be a fan of Christ’s sacrifice. Be a follower!
5/28/2017- God Morning Friends. Let us offer ourselves to God’s service in truth and spirit; not pomp and circumstance: Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. Romans 8:5-9
5/27/2017- God Morning Friends. Rejoice and make a joyful noise to the Lord, for He has granted us another opportunity to seek out His glory: One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in his dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at His sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord. Psalm 27:4-6
5/26/2017- God Morning Faithful. TGIF= Thank God I’m Free: Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter. I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation. The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:19-24 Have a God filled day
5/25/2017- God Morning Faithful. Give God the praise for He has given you another day. It is time to get dressed for service to God: Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Ephesians 6:11-17 Now you are dressed to be blessed
5/24/2017- God Morning Faithful. Remember, the battle is not yours: Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Psalm 37:1-7 Keep your head up, because that is where our help comes from!
5/23/2017- God morning Faithful. It is my prayer that you be ever mindful of the debt that you owe God for the indescribable gift that He has given you in Christ: Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. Colossians 1:21-23 Our hope and faith are in God’s Word. If we are not in God’s Word, where is our hope and faith?
5/22/2017- Friendly Reminder: I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1 Giving God our lives to do His will is true worship, anything less is false.
5/21/2017- God Morning Faithful. Keep your eyes on God by zealously searching and seeking His approval through the wisdom, understanding and obedience that comes only through faith in HIS Word:Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:1-5 We must push through our pain in order to be delivered to Salvation. PUSH= Praise Until Salvation Happens
5/20/2017- God Morning Friends. Humble yourselves and seek out the help of He who desires your soul: Hear me, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am faithful to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you. Psalm 86:1-4
5/19/2017- TGIF= Thank God I’m Free. Free Indeed: Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, for Christ Jesus has made me His own. Brothers,I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14 Get your Press On!
5/18/2017- God Morning Friends. Here is a word with a promise to encourage you along your way to Salvation: This is what the Lord says: “If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve Me; if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you will be my spokesman. Let this people turn to you, but you must not turn to them. I will make you a wall to this people, a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to rescue and save you,” Jeremiah 15:19-20 Repentance is the first and biggest step in our walk with God.
5/17/2017- God Morning Friends. It is our prayer that you be led by faith and kept by the righteousness that is in God’s Word: Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as He is righteous. The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. 1 John 3:7-10 If it walks like a devil and it talks like a devil; it’s a devil. Have a God day.
5/16/2017- God Morning Friends. it is my prayer that all that call on the name of Jesus Christ keep their eyes on Heaven and walk in truth and righteousness: “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Isaiah 58:9-11
5/15/2017- God Morning Friends. As we begin a new week in service to the Gospel of Christ Jesus. Let us be humbled by the amazing grace that we stand in and our responsibility to represent Heaven in all that we do: “I am the LORD, I have called you in righteousness, I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you, And I will appoint you as a covenant to the people, As a light to the nations, To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the dungeon and those who dwell in darkness from the prison. Isaiah 42:6-7 Have a God Day.
5/14/2017- God Morning Faithful. Rise and shine and give glory to our Lord for He is good and worthy of all praise: Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. Psalm 3:3-6 Remember, all glory belongs to God (The Creator)!
5/13/2017- God Morning Faithful. Give praise and rejoice for you have been set free from the fear of judgement and wrath through faith: We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,a that we should no longer be slaves to sin— because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. Romans 6:2-7 There should be an undeniable before and after in the life of every Christian. So if your before looks similar to your after, you are probably still living in the before.
5/12/2017- God Morning Children of God. TGIF=Thank God I’m Free. It is our fervent prayer that you seek God in all that you do this day. We pray that you remain mindful of Christ Jesus when you interact in this dark world. We pray that you shine like Children of light and make the most of every opportunity to share the gospel of hope. We pray that you be effective and productive workers and servants of righteousness. We pray that you stand in the face of trouble and hatred like a tree rooted in God’s glory.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14
5/11/2017- God Morning Faithful. Here is a Word with a promise to break the of sin and fear:Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. Psalm 91:1-8 Now that is a hearty “breakfast” 🙂
5/10/2017- God Morning Friends. Praise the Lord God for He has granted us a new day filled with the blessed assurances that come by faith: Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 Seek and you will find. *Helpful Hint- You won’t find Him in a building made by man (Isaiah 66:1)
God Morning Friend of Faith. Set your heart on Salvation and your feet will travel in righteousness: “Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:4-7
God Morning Friends. I pray that you are filled with an undeniable zeal and hunger for God’s righteousness and the hope that is only found in His Word: Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you. Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise. Psalm 51:10-15 We cannot sing of God’s righteousness if we do not know where to find God’s righteousness. It cannot be found in a building made by man. It is not passed done through descendancy. You can’t order it on Ebay or Amazon. It isn’t given through religion or rituals. The righteousness of God is from Heaven and it walked the earth and showed us how to please God (Hebrews 11:6 & 1 Peter 2:21). Righteousness can only be received in hearts that are humbled and free of the worldly contamination (greed, materialism, hate, guilt, perversion, rage,fearful,shame, regrets, doubt, depressed, pride, jealousy, envy, lust, hopelessness, etc.). The only way that we can overcome the contamination from the world is through acknowledging our sin and seeking the forgiveness that is freely given to all that believe in Christ Jesus. We must empty our baggage at the cross and then God will give us a new heart that is free from the world and it sins, and he will give us a heart that is full of His Holy Spirit. It all starts with repentance. If we refuse to admit that we have sin (1 John 1:8-10), then God’s grace is wasted on you and you will die with your sin. Pride goeth before the destruction. Proverb 16:18
