His faithful love endures forever!’ For I will restore the prosperity of this land to what it was in the past, says the LORD.

DECEMBER 6 – MIGHTY

12/06               Isaiah 12:4

4 In that wonderful day you will sing: “Thank the LORD ! Praise his name! Tell the nations what he has done. Let them know how mighty he is! 

MIGHTY
We serve a mighty God.  His power is supreme.  His knowledge is limitless.  His love is eternal.  What a mighty God we serve.  He stepped into our world as a man, living under the same restraints as we live under and by faith trusted God the Father.  He walked resolutely to the Cross dying for our sin.  Resurrected by the power of God, He is alive and does this very moment partner with each one of us so that we too can experience that resurrection power of the Father in our own life.  Praise the Lord, Jesus is alive and present in our life.

We can claim joy in our life.  We know who we belong to and where we are going.  However difficult this world we know that we are this very moment a member of God’s household, that He loves us and will never, no never, not ever leave us.  That is real joy.

NOVEMBER 30 – PRAY

11/30               1 Timothy 4:4-5                    

4 Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks. 5 For we know it is made acceptable by the word of God and prayer. 

PRAY

Spend much time in prayer for when we pray we are doing the work that the Lord calls us to do.  The Lord is good and we are strengthened in our daily walk by much time in prayer with Him.  Pray as though your life depended on it.  Pray for others for often their life depends on your prayer.  Pray for the Father calls us to spend time with Him.  Jesus wants to spend time with you.  Pray. 

 

NOVEMBER 29 – PARTNERS

11/29               Ephesians 1:15-17

15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. 

PARTNERS

We are partners together with the Lord and with each other in spreading the Gospel.  Everyone needs to hear.  Hearing is best communicated when people see that we do what we say-we practice our faith.  Thank you Lord for the people you send into my life.  Help me to minster to those that I love and those that are unlovely.  I serve them because you love me.  Jesus is my Lord and Savior and I will follow Him all the days of my life. 

 

 

 

NOVEMBER 28 – SHARE

11/28               2 Corinthians 9:11-12

11 Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. 12 So two good things will result from this ministry of giving—the needs of the believers in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God.

SHARE

We are called to share-Our faith, our activities and our resources.  People count with Jesus and they will count with us if we are filled with the Spirit of Jesus.  There are no Pharisees in the Lord’s camp only gracious and loving servants.
