So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” – Hebrews 13:6

Motivational Monday…

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13


Wisdom Shared:

As you move through your day today… be motivated by these words from God’s Holy Scriptures — Continually pray without ceasing.  Prayer is our constant communication with the Almighty God.  Christ centered life includes faith, hope, love driven by trusting the Lord at all times in every circumstance. It is in the hope in God’s word that fills me and it also fills you with faith, with love and empowerment to move forward in God’s will for our lives.  Not that we can claim any good doing for ourselves, or our competency…our competencies come from God, through Christ that gives us strength.  So today, tomorrow and each day… pray throughout the day.  And trust confidently that he hears the cries of our heart.  He knows all things and is at work in your circumstance Beloved of God.  Stand on God’s word – Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

In Christ Love,

Psalm 42

As the deer pants for streams of water,

so my soul pants for you, my God.

2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

When can I go and meet with God?

3 My tears have been my food

day and night,

while people say to me all day long,

“Where is your God?”

4 These things I remember

as I pour out my soul:

how I used to go to the house of God

under the protection of the Mighty One[d]

with shouts of joy and praise

among the festive throng.

5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.

6 My soul is downcast within me;

therefore I will remember you

from the land of the Jordan,

the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.

7 Deep calls to deep

in the roar of your waterfalls;

all your waves and breakers

have swept over me.

8 By day the Lord directs his love,

at night his song is with me—

a prayer to the God of my life.

9 I say to God my Rock,

“Why have you forgotten me?

Why must I go about mourning,

oppressed by the enemy?”

10 My bones suffer mortal agony

as my foes taunt me,

saying to me all day long,

“Where is your God?”

11 Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.


Prayer…

Heavenly Father,

Help us to reaffirm our firm footing through you, the power of Christ in us along with the Holy Spirit implanted in us.  May we write the word of God on the tablet of our hearts… may it be empowering giving us light to our eyes, illumination, understanding and much need revelation to guide us toward your will.  Fill us with the joy of your presence … Make those divine appointments recognizable as we deliver the good news …

In Jesus name – Amen!
