FEBRUARY 21 – FOCUS

02/21               Luke 11:9-13

9 “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.  11 “You fathers—if your children ask for a fish, do you give them a snake instead?  12 Or if they ask for an egg, do you give them a scorpion? Of course not! 13 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.” 

FOCUS

We are called to focus on our spiritual life and walk.  This requires persistence.  Sometimes it’s a necessary journey for us to persist so that we can learn what the Lord has for us.  We learn slowly and we want quickly.  Slow down.  Let the Lord show you the way.  Give Him your wants and take what He gives as your needs.  Know the Lord for Jesus loves you. 

 

Please pray for us these next 38 days.  We have two groups going on pilgrimage to Israel beginning 3/12/18 to 3/31/18 and a small group traveling on pilgrimage in Italy 3/14-24/18.  Thank you so very much.  God bless you.

 

 

FEBRUARY 20 – LISTEN

02/20          Colossians 3:16-19

16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. 18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting for those who belong to the Lord. 19Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly. 

LISTEN

Listen to the Lord as you spend time with Him reading your Bible, praying and meditating on Jesus.  The key is time.  It takes time to grow.  It takes time to study.  It takes focus to give the Lord time to build your spiritual life and equip you in your spiritual walk. 

Please pray for us these next 39 days.  We have two groups going on pilgrimage to Israel beginning 3/12/18 to 3/31/18 and a small group traveling on pilgrimage in Italy 3/14-24/18.  Thank you so very much.  God bless you.

 

FEBRUARY 19 – ASK

02/19          John 14:13-16

13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.  14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!  15 “If you love me, obey my commandments.  16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. 

ASK

The Lord says to ask.  Ask!  Keep asking until you get what you ask for or change.  The key is that you are willing to focus on the Lord and stay with it until you get your answer.  ASK.

FEBRUARY 18 – HELP

02/18          Psalm 107:13-16

13 “ LORD, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.  14 He led them from the darkness and deepest gloom; he snapped their chains. 15 Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them.  16 For he broke down their prison gates of bronze; he cut apart their bars of iron. 

HELP

This is an effective prayer.  The Lord listens to us.  Sometimes things happen so quick and we are in desperate straits that all we can do is cry out Lord help.

FEBRUARY 17 – ALL

02/17               Psalm 103:2-5

2 Let all that I am praise the LORD ; may I never forget the good things he does for me.  3 He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.  4 He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.  5 He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! 

ALL

Note the commitment for all that I am praise the Lord.  There must be a time when we stop everything else and focus on the Lord.  He is worthy of all of our praise and He calls us to commune with Him.  Jesus is Lord.  He will renew your spirit.

FEBRUARY 16 – GOOD

02/16               Matthew 7:9-11

9 “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead?  10 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!  11 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him. 

GOOD

The Lord is seeking to give us good.  He wants us to be the person He created us to be and to have those things in our life that are good.  I’m not talking about a health and wealth Gospel.  I’m talking about the true Gospel- Jesus lived a perfect life, died for our sin to pay a price we cannot pay and was raised from the dead by the power of God the Father and is seated at the aright hand of the Father interceding for us this moment.  Jesus loves you and that is the best news you could every receive.

FEBRUARY 15 – SEEK

02/15               Matthew 6:31-33

31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 

SEEK

Seek the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.  You will find in your relationship with Jesus everything you need for Godly living.

FEBRUARY 14 – YES

02/14               James 5:14-15

14 Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven. 

YES

Yes I am looking for forgiveness.  Many times a day I find myself talking with the Lord confessing some stupidity, some sin and the tragedy is so many of them are mindless.   We are under attack.  Lord help me to be more mindful of what I say and do so that I might not sin against you. 

Please pray for us these next 45 days.  We have two groups going on pilgrimage to Israel beginning 3/12/18 to 3/31/18 and a small group traveling on pilgrimage in Italy 3/14-24/18.  Thank you so very much.  God bless you. 

 

FEBRUARY 13 – TRUST

02/13               Proverbs 3:5-6

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 

TRUST

A promise-you trust and God will deliver.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  In spite of the prevailing worldly wisdom, the Lord is involved in your life and will give you the wisdom you need to do what you do.  Be real.  Be yourself.  The Lord is here.
