‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:20‬

“Go home, my people, and lock your doors! Hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s anger has passed.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:20‬ ‭

Today’s prayer is that we would all abide too the call and stay home, shut off the cell phones and spend time with the family and restore Gods will…….Be Blessed and Be Safe

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new 2 Corinthians 5:17

Daily Devotional Video 4/8/2020 – GENESIS 28 : 15, ROMANS 8 : 31, HEBREWS 13 : 8

“GOD IS WITH YOU AND FOR YOU, your constant Companion and Provider. The question is whether you are with GOD and for GOD. Though The LORD never leaves you, you can essentially “leave” The LORD by ignoring HIM: thinking or acting as if GOD is not with you. When you feel distance in your relationship, you know where the problem lies. GOD’S Love for you is constant; GOD is the same yesterday, today, and forever. It is you who change like shifting sand, letting circumstances toss you this way and that. When you feel far from GOD, whisper HIS Name. This simple act, done in childlike faith, opens your heart to GOD Presence. Speak to The LORD in love-tones; prepare to receive The LORD’S Love, which flows eternally from the cross. GOD is delighted when you open yourself to HIS loving Presence.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

“I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” GENESIS 28 : 15

What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? ROMANS 8 : 31

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. HEBREWS 13 : 8

Prayer: Lord I’m so grateful you are the same yesterday today and forever. You are the solid rock on which I stand. This world is ever changing, but you, my God, never change. You are still in control and always will be. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Daily Devotional Video 4/7/2020 – ISAIAH 64 : 8, PSALM 27 : 8

“GOD IS THE POTTER; you are HIS clay. GOD designed you before the foundation of the world. GOD arranges the events of each day to form you into this preconceived pattern. GOD’S everlasting Love is at work in every event of your life. On some days your will and GOD’S flow smoothly together. You tend to feel in control of your life when your wills are in harmony. On other days you feel as if you are swimming upstream, against the current of GOD’S purposes. When that happens, stop and seek GOD’S Face. The opposition you feel may be from GOD, or it may be from the evil one. Talk with The LORD about what you are experiencing. Let The LORD’S Holy Spirit guide you through treacherous waters. As you move through the turbulent stream with GOD, let circumstances mold you into the one GOD desires you to be. Say yes to your Potter as you go through this day.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. ISAIAH 64 : 8

My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek. PSALM 27 : 8

Prayer: Lord mold me to be more like Jesus – more patient, more kind, more joy and peace filled, more faith filled. Holy Spirit guide me and lead me today. Help me to pause and listen for what you want me to say and do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Daily Devotional Video 4/6/2020 – PSALM 116 : 17 , GENESIS 3 : 2 – 6 , 1 JOHN 1 : 7

“BRING GOD THE SACRIFICE of thanksgiving. Take nothing for granted, not even the rising of the sun. Before Satan tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden, thankfulness was as natural as breathing. Satan’s temptation involved pointing Eve to the one thing that was forbidden her. The garden was filled with luscious, desirable fruits, but Eve focused on the one fruit she couldn’t have rather than being thankful for the many good things freely available. This negative focus darkened her mind, and she succumbed to temptation. When you focus on what you don’t have or on situations that displease you, your mind also becomes darkened. You take for granted life, salvation, sunshine, flowers, and countless other gifts from GOD. You look for what is wrong and refuse to enjoy life until that is “fixed.” When you approach GOD with thanksgiving, the Light of GOD’S Presence pours into you, transforming you through and through. Walk in the Light with GOD by practicing the discipline of thanksgiving.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of the LORD. PSALM 116 : 17 (NKJV)

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. GENESIS 3 : 2 – 6

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 JOHN 1 : 7

Prayer: Lord what a timely word. Help me not to focus on what I don’t have or can’t do in this season, but on the many blessings all around me of which are far greater in number! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Daily Devotional Video 4/3/2020 – EPHESIANS 3 : 20, 2 CORINTHIANS 4 : 18

“IN GOD YOU HAVE EVERYTHING. In GOD you are complete. Your capacity to experience GOD is increasing, through HIS removal of debris and clutter from your heart. As your yearning for GOD increases, other desires are gradually lessening. Since GOD is infinite and abundantly accessible to you, desiring The LORD above all else is the best way to live. It is impossible for you to have a need that The LORD cannot meet. After all, GOD created you and everything that is. The world is still at GOD’S beck and call, though it often appears otherwise. Do not be fooled by appearances. Things that are visible are brief and fleeting, while things that are invisible are everlasting.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…. EPHESIANS 3 : 20

as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 CORINTHIANS 4 : 18

Prayer: Lord thank you that I have everything in you. You are all I need. Set my mind on eternal things and less on earthly things today. Increase my desire for you and your ways. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Daily Devotional Video 4/1/2020 – 1 THESSALONIANS 5 : 17, PROVERBS 3 : 6

“GOD IS CALLING YOU to a life of constant communion with HIM. Basic training includes learning to live above your circumstances, even while interacting on that cluttered plane of life. You yearn for a simplified lifestyle, so that your communication with GOD can be uninterrupted. But GOD challenges you to relinquish the fantasy of an uncluttered world. Accept each day just as it comes, and find GOD in the midst of it all. Talk with The LORD about every aspect of your day, including your feelings. Remember that your ultimate goal is not to control or fix everything around you; it is to keep communing with GOD. A successful day is one in which you have stayed in touch with GOD, even if many things remain undone at the end of the day. Do not let your to-do list (written or mental) become an idol directing your life. Instead, ask GOD’S Holy Spirit to guide you moment by moment. GOD’S Holy Spirit will keep you close to The LORD.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

Pray continually. 1 THESSALONIANS 5 : 17

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. PROVERBS 3 : 6

Prayer: Lord, your timing and your word are always perfect and exactly what I need. Help me to relinquish the fantasy of an uncluttered world and find you in the midst of it all. Holy Spirit, guide me moment by moment today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Daily Devotional Video 3/31/2020 – PSALM 34 : 8, GENESIS 16 : 13 – 14, JOHN 20 : 19, COLOSSIANS 3 : 15

“TASTE AND SEE THAT GOD IS GOOD.The more intimately you experience The LORD, the more convinced you become of HIS goodness. GOD is the Living One who sees you and longs to participate in your life. GOD is training you to find HIM in each moment and to be a channel of The LORD’S loving Presence. Sometimes GOD’S blessings come to you in mysterious ways: through pain and trouble. At such times you can know The LORD’S goodness only through your trust in GOD. Understanding will fail you, but trust will keep you close to GOD. Thank The LORD for the gift of HIS Peace, a gift of such immense proportions that you cannot fathom its depth or breadth. When JESUS CHRIST appeared to HIS disciples after the resurrection, it was Peace that The LORD communicated first of all. CHRIST knew this was their deepest need: to calm their fears and clear their minds. GOD also speaks Peace to you, for HE knows your anxious thoughts. Listen to GOD! Tune out other voices, so that you can hear The LORD more clearly. GOD designed you to dwell in Peace all day, every day. Draw near to GOD; receive HIS Peace.” para-phrased – “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. PSALM 34 : 8

So she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, You are a God of seeing, for she said, Truly here I have seen him who looks after me. Therefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; it lies between Kadesh and Bered. GENESIS 16 : 13 – 14 (ESV)

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” JOHN 20 : 19

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. COLOSSIANS 3 : 15

Prayer: Jesus thank you for reminding me that peace is only found in you. I won’t find it anywhere else. Fill me with your peace today as I spend time with you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
