This Week

God gave me some scriptures to hold onto and to apply to each moment of the day. I’ll share them with you. These scriptures will help me to have a successful day which will lead to a successful and peaceful week. I will meditate on them day and night. I will speak them. I will put them into practice.

“Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends! I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:1-2, 4-9, 13, 19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

What scriptures will you hold onto this week?


Ephesians 5:1-20 Prayer

Jesus, help me to follow Your example. To walk in love at all times. Help me to sacrifice myself and give myself to others as You did for me on the cross. Please purify me; my heart, mind, body, and motives. Take out anything that isn’t like You. Help my words to be pleasing to Your ears. May they build up those I speak to and about and not tear them down. Help me to always be thankful. Jesus help me to keep You first and not put anyone or anything before You. Help me to be wise and walk according to Your guidance and wisdom. Keep my company honest and may they have good motives. Please teach me Your will so that I can walk it out obediently and live a righteous life. Keep me out of the company of those who are disobedient. Help me to have holy boldness and speak truth at all times. Jesus, thank You for every opportunity. Help me to make the most of them all. Fill me with Your Spirit. I need You. I thank You. In Jesus Name. Amen.

What a great reminder-Proverbs 3:1-10

What I was reminded of is pretty simple. As I read through Proverbs 3:1-10, I’m reminded that my faithfulness and obedience to Gods Word and His Kingdom will produce promises. When I obey His commands, I attach myself to long life, peace, and prosperity. Who doesn’t desire these things? So you mean to tell me, they automatically attach themselves to me when I obey God?! That’s an extremely fair trade off. You mean to tell me that trusting God will put me on a straight path? I don’t need to try to figure out my life because God’s promise to give me straight paths will set my life up for greatness?! Yeah, with promises like that from a God who is able to perform awesome wonders, I’ll stay on the road of obedience for life. It’s well worth it. Don’t you think so too ? So keep the faith. You’re right where God needs you. Stay faithful and obedient to His Word.

“My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:1-10‬ ‭NIV‬‬


Gods Will Be done

Wondering how you can live in the will of God? 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 gives up a clue on how. We need to:

    Rejoice always -v16
    Pray continually-v17
    Give thanks in everything-v18
  • These three things will jumpstart your walk in God will. Practicing these daily will keep us lifted, guided, and thankful. Imagine practicing these things before complaining and becoming frustrated with life? How pleased would God be? I will try to keep this list before me today as I go through the day. Will you join me?

  • “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
  • ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭NIV‬‬
  • ❤️
  • Solomon’s Prayer

    1 Kings 8:56-60 gives us a great example of prayer. It teaches us what to pray for. Here’s an outline of Solomon’s prayer:

    1. Gods presence -v57
    2. Desire to do Gods will in everything -v58
    3. Help with each days need -v59
    4. Desire and ability to obey Gods decrees and commands -v58
    5. Spread of Gods kingdom to the entire world -v60

    “Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. May the Lord our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us nor forsake us. May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in obedience to him and keep the commands, decrees and laws he gave our ancestors. And may these words of mine, which I have prayed before the Lord, be near to the Lord our God day and night, that he may uphold the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel according to each day’s need, so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other.”

    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭8:56-60‬ ‭NIV

    What I Heard

    “Who am I? I am God! Introduce Me to your world. Let Me consume the areas you need Me to consume. I am here. I am moving. I am God. Remember this.”

    “They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!””

    ‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:41‬ ‭NIV‬‬


    Living righteously

    Living righteously allows us to walk in protection, provision, authority, life, diligently, abundantly, in freedom, joyfully, fruitfully, progressively, with strength, with patience, and with endurance. We long to hear the voice of God throughout our days. But the wicked do not seek to hear His voice or correction. The wicked walk according to flesh and fulfilling the lusts of flesh. The outcome is death. Living in correction brings honor. God brings correction to those He loves. He loves us enough to save us from the trap of death. So let us listen to the voice of God as He instructs us in our daily lives. This instruction births wisdom.

    Proverbs 13

    How will you walk in wisdom today?
