Spiritual Wisdom

December 29, 2006

It amazes me how much Paul prayed for the church. We are reaping his prayers today.

This prayer from Ephesians keeps coming up in my Spirit. May you be flooded with light today!

Ephesians 1:15-23 (NLT)
Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom

 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. 18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.

 19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.

Nothing is Impossible

December 25, 2006

Merry Christmas!

As we celebrate the miracle of the birth of our saviour, Jesus, it is important to focus on the words Gabriel said to Mary in Luke 1:37 as he was explaining to her what would happen to her over the next 33 years of her life. He said something that was so profound that I have to lean on and grab for my own…

Luke 1:37 (NLT)
“For nothing is impossible with God.”

Whenever I feel like a relationship has been broken, such as I recently have felt with my husband, I have had to lean on this verse over and over again. I know that God would not have placed my husband in my life without a reason. Therefore, I have to cling to His word to assure me that even broken relationships can be healed and restored. I know that the Lord does not want divorce so it lines up with His will when I ask for restoration.

May Jesus heal your relationships this Christmas and throughout the year!

In His Service & Merry Christmas,

My God…His Will

December 24, 2006

When we walk the walk of a Christian, it is no longer our will, but it becomes God’s will. When we stepped over into the Kingdom of Life, our life is ours with Christ. It cannot be separated from Him who loves us.

He (the Spirit) teaches us to move into His plans and His purposes. He trains and teaches us as we walk as followers of Christ. Sometimes we go kicking and screaming not wanting to change, but we should remember that God’s way is always the true way, for He (Jesus) said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Light.”

The best part about God is that he teaches us little by little so that we may retain that which he has given us. He also does this so that the things of this world cannot overtake us.

Ask God to teach you His will.

Psalms 143:10 (NLT)
“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.”

May your day be filled with peace.

He’s Coming…

December 22, 2006

I am so glad that He Lives!! This is one of my favorite hymns I used to sing when I was a child. I really didn’t get the meaning of these words until I was MUCH older, but now — how those words sing out to me…

I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today;
I know that He is living, whatever men may say.
I see his hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer
and, just the time I need Him, He’s always near.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.

In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And tho’ my heart grows weary, I never will despair.
I know that He is leading thro’ all the stormy blase;
The day of His appearing will come at last.


Rejoice, rejoice, O Christians, lift up your voice and sing
eternal halelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind.


Zechariah 3:10-13 (NLT)
The Lord says, “Shout and rejoice, O beautiful Jerusalem,for I am coming to live among you. Many nations will join themselves to the Lord on that day, and they, too, will be my people. I will live among you, and you will know that the Lord of Heaven’s Armies sent me to you. The land of Judah will be the Lord’s special possession in the holy land, and he will once again choose Jerusalem to be his own city. Be silent before the Lord, all humanity, for he is springing into action from his holy dwelling.”

My Path He Knows Undeniably

December 20, 2006

This was really great reading today!

You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am.

You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.

You both precede and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.

Psalm 139:3-5 (NLT)

Emmanuel – God with us

December 19, 2006

It’s always so amazing how the bible reveals itself in your reading time. I call it my time with God. I love to read his word early in the morning. I try to make it the first thing. Sometimes I get distracted by checking the weather (like I did this morning), but that’s because it’s raining here.

Today, I found another place where the bible predicted in the Old Testament that which we are living in today — the New Testament.

This verse brings me so much peace…

“For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song.”

Zephaniah 3:17
