God is either everything, or he’s nothing.

What is your passion today? Is it God?

When you are awakened…And you will seek Me and find Me,

when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13a NKJV

Pray for him to be your guiding force!

For You are my lamp, O Lord;

The Lord shall enlighten my darkness.

2 Samuel 22:29 NKJV

Pray for him to be your guiding force!

Brighten my day; with thoughts upon your spirit,

that are holy, heavenly and powerful.

Your forever beam will illuminate our day,

when we search you with all our hearts.

Love one Another

“Children let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth. ” John 3:18

This is truly our daily challenge, To love one another outside of self requires a hugh step towards, less of me and more of you.

Self-centeredness is our problem. Me, myself and I, now what do you think about me. How funny is that, but so true unfortunately. We must die to self, simply throughout the day.

I heard it put in an interesting way:

Start your day out with this. When you see an elderly person, ask them if you can be of service to them. You will be amazed at how many elderly people you see that day. They are everywhere!

Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is : ‘Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength,’ This is the first commandment. ‘And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Put on the full armor of God

To maintain that temple requires wearing of his armor daily!

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God,

so that you can take your stand against the devil’s scheme.” Ephesians 6:10 NKJV

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinquish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:16 NKJV

When dwelling upon the thoughts of that temple, my foolish past floods my soul.

Oh; but Christ has washed me clean, by the blessings of the cross.

Levels of Humility

Each level of humility takes us places we’ve never been .

New horizons, upon which to abide with him.

Sit with God and wait for him to come and dwell with thee.

” if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

…and I asked him to help me…

As he humbles you, you are aware of his work, that which only he can achieve.

Humility is never of our own doing.

“Though you have not seen him, you loved him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an expressible and glorious joy.” 1 Peter 1:8 NIV

Remain in forever thankful contemplation; of him who presides over us all.

Ask him to help you and then, sit and wait for God to com.

PASS it ALONG

“As my father loved me, I also loved you; abide in my love.” John 15:9

The greatest gift we can receive is the knowledge of the love our Lord has for us,

and that we can live our lives in and thru that love.

We can ask God to go before us; so we can pass his love along, to all those we come

into contact with thru our daily walk.

To walk in his Love, we must refuel daily in his presence.

Lord teach us to pray.

Andrew Murray

Refreshment for our souls

The gift received from daily prayer and meditation is indispensable for a joyful walk with the Lord.

It is the present of each day.

Unreceived usually means an unsuccessful meaningful day, railroaded by broken tracks.

One can so easily end up in the woods lost and afraid.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

The futility of the mind and the blindness of the heart leaves us a lost soul!

Wandering around aimlessly, I’m left in a state of emptiness.

This I say , therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart. Ephesians 4:17-18

What am I trying to learn today?

Image result for learn

Oh father, that I may learn the lesson for each day as you press this upon my heart. I must learn the lesson to receive the blessing. Help me to think to ask for your help in advance of the task in front of me. This is my minute by minute goal, to stay forever in your presence.

It is in seeking you that we find you!…the secret is; you have always been there, and we just didn’t know it.

Deuteronomy 4:29 New King James Version (NKJV)

29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
