Sunday’s Word- 21Oct12

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Isaiah 55: 8-11

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

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

Sunday’s Word –24Jun12

 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.  Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.  Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.”

Luke 11:33-36

Sunday’s Word — 10Jun12

A good name is more desirable than great riches;
to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.

 Rich and poor have this in common:
The Lord is the Maker of them all.

 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge,
but the simple keep going and suffer for it.

 Humility and the fear of the Lord
bring wealth and honor and life.

Proverbs 22:1-4
