Sunday’s Word – 14Oct12

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalms 103:1-5

Encouragement for the Moment

If we pray for anything according to the will of God, we already have what we pray for the moment we ask it.  We do not know exactly when it will arrive; but we have learned to know God through the Spirit of God, and have learned to leave this in His hands, and to live just as happily whether the answer arrives immediately or later.

O. Hallesby

 

 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

1 John 5: 14-15

 

Encouragement for the Moment

To pray is to let Jesus into our lives. He knocks and seeks admittance, not only in the solemn hours of secret payer, He knocks in the midst of your daily work, your daily struggles,  your daily “grind”.  This is when you need Him the most.

 

O. Hallesby

 

Rejoice always,  pray continually,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

 

 

Sunday’s Word – 30Sep12

 

My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

 For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 2:1-6

Encouragement for the Moment

Your prayers move God to change the world.  You may not understand the mystery of prayer. You don’t need to.  But this much is clear: Action in heaven begins when someone prays on the earth.  What an amazing thought!

 Max Lucado

 

 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.

Matthew 21:22
