3-2 A little light sheds a lot of light into darkness. A bigger light lights up even more darkness. Can you imagine how much darkness even just a brief glimpse of the bright glory of God will light? Wow! A glimpse of God's glory is powerful. Get up, the light is on! Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1
3-3 "Ok God, I have done what you asked. I have given you my all and nothing seems to be changing; now what?" God answers..."Patience, my child, wait on the promise." For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. Hebrews 10:36
3-4 Many are concerned with all the unrest, rebellion, and war all around the globe. All eyes are on our leaders who we trust with our safety, well being and freedom. Remember to pray for them daily. May our God enlighten them in all their decisions. Scripture below
3-5 Today if you are dealing with confusion all around you, remember God is not the author of confusion, but of peace. Claim God's peace in every area of your life. Claim the mind of Christ for those who come against you and attempt to keep you down and defeated. Stand up to the devil for you are protected from his arrows by the blood of Jesus Christ who gave His life for you But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 15:57
3-6 Today is Sunday. It is the beginning of a new week. Let's begin it with a thankful heart for all God has given. REJOICE!!! And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy God hath given unto thee...Deuteronomy 26:11
3-7 What are you praying for today? Maybe the same thing you prayed for yesterday, and last week and possibly even last year? Remember when you pray you must BELIEVE!!!!! Don't lose your faith of knowing that Jesus can do all things. We must BELIEVE all things are possible when we pray.
Matthew 9:27 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. 28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. 29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you
3-9 Ok, so perhaps it is possible to have a day when you feel like screaming really loudly, but hold that thought and remember that Jesus said, 'My peace I leave with you my peace I give." If you have accepted that peace there is no need for the scream. Just close your eyes and feel His peace wash quietly over you.
3- 12 Most of us have heard the time of Jesus' return is drawing near our entire life. We have seen signs of His coming for many years, but today I believe that day will come soon. Lift up your heads for redemption draws near. In the scripture below Jesus, Himself spoke of signs of His return.
Luke 5:25 "And there will be strange events in the skies—signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And down here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. 26The courage of many people will falter because of the fearful fate they see coming upon the earth because the stability of the very heavens will be broken up. 27Then everyone will see the Son of Man arrive on the clouds with power and great glory. 28 So when all these things begin to happen, stand straight and look up, for your salvation is near!"
3-13 Amidst a lot of tragedy throughout the world this week there have also been a lot of miracles. Many who received the miracles are praising God today. Not only should the miracle receivers praise, but also all who have seen them. Praise God today for all miracles we have seen!!!! Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus, praising God. And all who saw it praised God, too. Luke 18:43
3-15 As Christians it is sometimes surprising to find we have enemies, some who hate us and would like nothing better than to see us fall. Remember to hold your head high and press on because with God on our side we will not fail. We will walk in victory!!!
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. Isaiah 54:17
3-18 Today as you face the same trial again that you might have faced yesterday, or last week, or last month, or even last year; remember as you have to drag yourself around the same mountain again God is with you always. He is in control. He who endures is honorable and will be saved!!!!!
We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. Job is an example of a man who endured patiently. From his experience, we see how the Lord's plan finally ended in good, for he is full of tenderness and mercy. James 5:11
3-20 I woke early this morning. Praise God! How about you? Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD. Psalm 150:6
3-21 It is easy to be fearful as we listen to the news of war, chaos, and tragedy all around the world today... "but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm." Proverbs 1:33 Listen for God's voice today and be at ease.
3-22 We are reminded in the scriptures that weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning, but this morning I found a scripture that tells me that one day I will not only have JOY, but I will be OVERJOYED!!!!!! Sounds good to me :-) But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. I Peter 4:13
3-23 "I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene and wonder how He could love me, a sinner condemned unclean"...The words to this old hymn reminded me of this scripture today. But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 I am amazed at His love for me!
3-27 May He whose name is holy bring revival to our spirits today. For this is what the high and lofty One says - he who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. Isaiah 57:15
3-28 Does your space, your little corner of the world seem dark and lonely void of peace and filled with chaos and confusion? Look to the Lord of Glory today who promised to fill even that space with His glory.....But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD. Numbers 4:21
3-29 Many who long for Christ to return to Earth, are perplexed and troubled by world events, yet Christ Himself told us not to be troubled for these things MUST come to pass in order for Him to return and bring an end to all wars. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:6
3-31 Life is short. Time on earth is short. Now is the time to run this race with purpose and each do our part to help fulfill the Great Commission. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. I Corinthians 9:26
