EVIDENCE!

8-31-2016. . . .EVIDENCE!

"So also is my Word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It shall accomplish all I want it to and prosper everywhere I send it." (Isa 55:11-12 TLB)  If the Word of God were prosecuted in a court of law, it would always be found guilty because it always leaves evidence where ever it has been!  How much evidence can be found in us?

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for your proceeding and prevailing word.  May there be much evidence of its presence found in our lives.  Amen!

 Ps 119:15-16. . . .I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.  I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.  KJV

WHICH GROUP ARE YOU IN!

8-26-2016. . . .WHICH GROUP ARE YOU IN!

"My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times.  You rebuke the arrogant, who are cursed and who stray from your commands."  (Ps 119:20-21 NIV)  How would you feel if a child of yours willfully disobeyed and defied you?  Imagine how God (our Heavenly Father) must feel.  It is good that His ways are not like our ways; instead of justice, He extends to us His mercy and lovingkindness.  Imagine now how it makes you feel when your children are obedient and submissive to your will and guidance!  Imagine again, how God must feel when we are the same.  Which group are you in?

Prayer: Lord, thank you for rewarding those that diligently seek you.  May we forever be consumed with pleasing you.  Amen.

1 John 3:20-22. . . .For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.  Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.  KJV

Excerpts For Living: GUARD WHAT YOU HEAR!

GUARD WHAT YOU HEAR!

8-25-2016. . . .GUARD WHAT YOU HEAR!

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Rom 10:18 KJV)  What we "HEAR" has a direct correlation to our faith.  It would be wonderful if the only thing we ever heard was the word of God; then, our faith would experience uninhibited growth.  The truth is, there are many things that enter into the realm of our hearing daily.  Some good, some not so good.  Some things we hear are unavoidable.  We would do well nevertheless, to guard what we voluntarily allow ourselves to hear .   Remember, what we hear affects our faith, and thus, our lives.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your word and the faith that comes by hearing it!  Help us filter out every unnecessary thing that our ears and our faith may remain pure.  Amen.

Matt 13:16. . . .But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. NIV
