His Gift to Us!

It’s late in the day. I’ve spent time with God off and on today. I’ve enjoyed a great conversation or 2 about His goodness. It’s been a blessed and busy day. 

It is time to stop everything and spend 23 solid minutes with our Father. An eye-opening scripture about 1 of the greatest gifts that God has given us is what I looked at today. 

Eye-opener: Sin leads to death. There’s no way around it. If we continue in sin, death is the end result. 

How do we stop sinning? Get closer to God. Spend time in His Word. Obey His Word. Pray. Pray. Listen and pray more. Ask God for the strength to not sin. 

The Gift: Eternal Life with Christ. Face to face contact with the ONE who died to save you, Who loves you, supplies your needs and cares for you. 

23 Minutes isn’t enough to thank God for His wonderful gift to us.

Live In Peace! 

Good Morning! 

This is the scripture that God gave me for 2017. I’m so happy to share it with you today. 

For 22 minutes, read this scripture, meditate on it and pray to God about it for your life. While Jesus gave us these instructions, the results of obeying these words is you having peace and pleasing God. We can’t live like Jesus and act like the world.   Its time for us to mature in God!

Love you and I’m praying for you. 

“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked.  You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.

Luke 6:35‭-‬36 NLT

Goodness! 

Rise and grind! 

God is a great God! He keeps us through the hardest of times and blesses us abundantly on time! 

In 19 minutes today read Psalm 31. Can you relate to things going really wrong in life? When everything was said and done do you recall how God still blessed?  This chapter puts God in front of our issues.  God Is our Rock, He keeps us,  He brings us out. The Psalmist praises God with this wonderful scripture…

Psalms 31:19 (KJV)  Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

Hear His Voice…

May the LORD bless you today. I pray that these 17 minutes will leave a lasting impression in you to want to know God more and more. 

For 17 minutes, spend time with God focusing on having a deeper relationship with Him. It’s s good to know about God, but it’s so much better to know Him. 

Paul’s prayer is for us to have a better understanding of God. As you read, meditate and pray about the scriptures you start recognizing the voice and Will of God. You don’t have to struggle to hear God’s voice or know what it sounds like when you’re spending time with Him daily. Ask for Him to speak and then get your bible, pray and LISTEN. 
Ephesians 1:17-19 (KJV)  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

Give! 

For 16 minutes today, spend time with God praying about your giving. Thank God for all He gives to you. Ask God to show you who to give to and what you give them and do it. Sometimes we have to give until it hurts, but don’t worry, God promises that He’ll take care of us. 

What can we give to God? Obedience, praise, our surrender. The bible says…

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Luke 6:38 KJV

Let Me Help You! 

God bless you today as you spend 15 Minutes With God! 

It’s so important to be humble. Don’t get the ‘big head’ because you serve God. Don’t look down on others who don’t. Remember that God is loving. Jesus didn’t and doesn’t look down on others.  He looks at all of us with compassion. Compassion moves you to help someone. If you look at a person and have no desire to help them, you’ve looked wrong. 

This is a lesson for everyone of us. God help our eyes and our hearts. 

This scripture also helps us to realize that we can all be tempted. The greatest preacher to the person who has touched a bible for the first time can be tempted. Jesus was tempted and overcame by the Word of God and so can you today. Speak the Word of God when you’re tempted. Start praising God for the strength to withstand and not succumb.  Thank God for being your help. 

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 (KJV)  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

14 Minutes…

God bless you today! 

14 Wonderful minutes to spend with God today! When I think of the goodness of Jesus! I have to thank God! Here’s a scripture that you can read and find plenty to thank God for.  

Did you know that absolutely nothing can separate you from God? Yes, we suffer because we love God, that is a fact. The devil and the world have no desire for you to follow Christ and have a prosperous and eternal life, so they make every attempt to destroy you. 

Wouldn’t it be just like the God that we serve to keep us through every problem, situation, temptation, trial, accusation and test? He causes us to triumph, overcome and conquer! He does this by giving us the fruits of His Spirit. In the midst of our situation, we manage to have love, joy, peace. We are able to endure, be gentle, keep the faith, be humble and have self – control. 

God I am so thankful that NOTHING and NO ONE can separate me from Your love! 

Romans 8:35-39 (KJV)  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

DECIDE!

Make a decision today to life the new life that God has given you in Christ!  Stop living a life a sin.  Live in the freedom and power that Christ gives us.

For 13 Minutes today, pray about this decision.  Ask God to show you what you need to give up to walk in the newness that He’s given us.  Ask God to help you to surrender what you have held on to and for the strength to walk in your decision.  Enjoy your new life without sin.  It is possible through Christ!

Here are 4 different versions of this eye-opening, in-your-face scripture, Romans 6:13:

13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. KJV

13 Do not go on offering members of your body to sin as instruments of wickedness. But offer yourselves to God [in a decisive act] as those alive [raised] from the dead [to a new life], and your members [all of your abilities—sanctified, set apart] as instruments of righteousness [yielded] to God.

13  Give yourselves to God, as people who have been raised from death to life. CEV

12-14 That means you must not give sin a vote in the way you conduct your lives. Don’t give it the time of day. Don’t even run little errands that are connected with that old way of life. Throw yourselves wholeheartedly and full-time—remember, you’ve been raised from the dead!—into God’s way of doing things. Sin can’t tell you how to live. After all, you’re not living under that old tyranny any longer. You’re living in the freedom of God. MSG

Start Over And Do It God’s Way! 


 Start Over and Do It God’s Way…

It’s a Great Day to spend 12 Minutes Alone with God! Read this scripture and pray a prayer of thanks and praise to God for forgiving us, washing us and being the God of another chance. 

Choose today to begin again. After you’ve asked for forgiveness, let that thing go and get away from it, in your mind and your body. Know that God has forgiven you and start over. Remind yourself that you are forgiven. If the sin pops up in your mind (which it often does), remind yourself that you’re forgiven and that you have started over. Think about God forgiving you, read this scripture, pray and move on. 

Psalms 103:8-12 (KJV)  The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
