NOV 28 – ROMANS 11:21-27

11/28          Romans 11:21-27

For if God did not spare the original branches, he won’t spare you either.  22 Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off. 23 And if the people of Israel turn from their unbelief, they will be grafted in again, for God has the power to graft them back into the tree. 24 You, by nature, were a branch cut from a wild olive tree. So if God was willing to do something contrary to nature by grafting you into his cultivated tree, he will be far more eager to graft the original branches back into the tree where they belong. 25 I want you to understand this mystery, dear brothers and sisters, so that you will not feel proud about yourselves. Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ. 26 And so all Israel will be saved. As the Scriptures say, “The one who rescues will come from Jerusalem, and he will turn Israel away from ungodliness. 27 And this is my covenant with them, that I will take away their sins.” 


Jesus takes away our sin.  He forgives and gives new life.  Jesus is Lord and He loves me and you.  Surrender to Jesus and give Him your obedience.  

NOV 27 – 1 THESS 5:16-18

11/27          1 Thessalonian 5:16-18

16 Always be joyful. 17 Never stop praying. 18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 

Lord we will be constant with our praying and spending time with you.  We are so grateful for the joy that You give us in Jesus.  He is Lord and we have surrendered our life to Him and He is Lord of us.  Thank you Father, thank you. 

NOV 26 – 1 TIM 4:4-5

11/26          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.


Thank you, Lord, for every good and perfect gift.  We thank You, we thank You.  Blessed is the name of the Lord and we are thankful to You.  

NOV 25 – 2 COR 9:11

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. 


Thank you, Lord, for all of Your blessings.  Your presence is always needed and we are so grateful and so thankful for You.  Blessed is the Lord.  Precious is the name of the Lord.  Thank you.  


11/24          1 Corinthians 1:4

4 I always thank my God for you and for the gracious gifts he has given you, now that you belong to Christ Jesus. 


We are bought with a price, the blood of Jesus Christ and we belong to Him.  We will never be cut-off.  Jesus will never leave us.  Thank you, Father, for Your precious gift of Jesus our Messiah.  


11/23          Colossians 4:2

2 Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart. 

Thank you Lord for your gracious gift of prayer so that we can talk with You.  Prayer is always our opportunity to talk with You, to commune with You, to open our hearts to You and maintain a two-way conversation.  We need you Lord, we need you every minute of every day.  Thank you Lord. 


11/22          Colossians 3:15

15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. 


Thank you, Lord, for the peace that reigns in my heart.  Thank you for the peace you bring to my everyday life.  Thank you, Lord, for peace.  Thank you.  

NOV 21 – 1 CHRON 16:34

11/21          1 Chronicles 16:34

Thank you Lord, thank you.  You are so good to me.  Thank you Lord.  Thank you for your love and for our forever relationship.  Jesus is Lord.  Thank you Lord.  

NOV 20 – ROMANS 11:11-20

11/20          Romans 11:11-20

Did God’s people stumble and fall beyond recovery? Of course not! They were disobedient, so God made salvation available to the Gentiles. But he wanted his own people to become jealous and claim it for themselves. 12 Now if the Gentiles were enriched because the people of Israel turned down God’s offer of salvation, think how much greater a blessing the world will share when they finally accept it. 13 I am saying all this especially for you Gentiles. God has appointed me as the apostle to the Gentiles. I stress this, 14 for I want somehow to make the people of Israel jealous of what you Gentiles have, so I might save some of them. 15 For since their rejection meant that God offered salvation to the rest of the world, their acceptance will be even more wonderful. It will be life for those who were dead! And since Abraham and the other patriarchs were holy, their descendants will also be holy—just as the entire batch of dough is holy because the portion given as an offering is holy. For if the roots of the tree are holy, the branches will be, too. 17 But some of these branches from Abraham’s tree—some of the people of Israel—have been broken off. And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God’s special olive tree. 18 But you must not brag about being grafted in to replace the branches that were broken off. You are just a branch, not the root. 19 “Well,” you may say, “those branches were broken off to make room for me.” 20 Yes, but remember—those branches were broken off because they didn’t believe in Christ, and you are there because you do believe. So don’t think highly of yourself, but fear what could happen. 


Just let the Lord have control of your life and do not resent or mistreat others.  Focus on Jesus and do as He says and you will live a Godly life.  

NOV 19 – ROMANS 11:5-10

11/19          Romans 11:5-10 

It is the same today, for a few of the people of Israel have remained faithful because of God’s grace—his undeserved kindness in choosing them. 6 And since it is through God’s kindness, then it is not by their good works. For in that case, God’s grace would not be what it really is—free and undeserved. 7 So this is the situation: Most of the people of Israel have not found the favor of God they are looking for so earnestly. A few have—the ones God has chosen—but the hearts of the rest were hardened. 8 As the Scriptures say, “God has put them into a deep sleep. To this day he has shut their eyes so they do not see, and closed their ears so they do not hear.” 9Likewise, David said, “Let their bountiful table become a snare, a trap that makes them think all is well. Let their blessings cause them to stumble, and let them get what they deserve. 10 Let their eyes go blind so they cannot see, and let their backs be bent forever.” 


You see and hear and ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you.  Lord I believe, help my unbelief.
