God’s Victory and Awesome Work: In your majesty ride forth victoriously in the cause of truth, humility and justice; let your right hand achieve awesome deedsPsalm 45:4

Wisdom Shared:
Beloved to be victoriously awesome, we need to walk in truth – God’s word is truth.  Being so lovingly merciful, walking humbly with God … showing justice.  The true key word is humility through Christ that arms us with strength.  Micah 6:8 states we are required to … To act justly and to love mercy     and to walk humbly with our God. Yes, Beloved humility before honor. The word humility does not come out much in today’s social circles.  Truthfully speaking it is a strong virtue that is evidence of God’s love in us.  The Bible states, Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life. Proverbs 22:4 It is through our reverence and love for God the Father comes the power to display humility.
Duty & Faith:
Today’s worldly standards appear to display entitlement, this is part of the reason we have a hard time coming together as people.  It is an act of duty and faith to walk in love.  Show love, through God’s power and might in us.  Faith without deeds is useless. [James 22:20] – Love is the main ingredient in our faith.  That love comes by Jesus Christ who empowers us to do good and love one another deeply with a pure heart and clear conscience. Beloved as you move through your day… At home, at work and play … Walk in humility and love because its wages are priceless treasures, honor and life. My prayer for you today is to walk in love through humility with our God.
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Jennifer Pettiford
Prayer 1 Timothy 1:4-6
Heavenly Father …
We thank you for the power of your unfailing love through Christ. We thank you for the wisdom of your word and the power of the Holy Spirit that teaches and guides us to direct path unto you.  Your sons/daughters will seek in advancing God’s work—which is by faith. The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. We look to you and your Holy Word so that we will remain loyal to you Lord and not as some have done; departed from these and have turned to meaningless talk.

God’s Word: Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed, save me and I will be saved … Jeremiah 17:14
Wisdom Shared: Heal me … Save me Lord by your word and by your power and glorious love.  The Lord speaks healing … restoration through his redeeming grace. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Psalm 107:20 … There is abundance of blessings for the obedient in Christ.
  • Beloved, Have you answered God’s call? …
  • Have you prayed about the call of faith? …
  • Are you doing the ministry work he has prompted you to do?
God has sent his Holy Spirit to work through his people… He has empowered us to bring the gospel of peace to those who do not know or believe.  Your family, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbor, the woman that cuts your hair at the salon.  The man that services your car? … That person you see on the subway each morning on your way to work.  Our glory is His-Story to bring the joy of our salvation through Christ that brings strength.  That enriches lives to aspire for the goodness through Christ.
As I think God’s saving grace in my very own life… It has become my duty of faith to encourage, pray through the power of God’s Healing words.  Beloved, he sends healing, he also sends comfort through the promises of the living word that is Christ. All that is required is that we trust and believe.   All the blessings are there waiting for you.  It is by his gracious love … poured out in us that we see the revelation in his word; bringing us from strength to strength.  It is through the obedience he blesses with the best of the land.  The word is “power” … The word is “strength’ more importantly it is active and alive.  [Hebrews 4:12] … How will you respond to the answer of God’s call in your life?  Will you share the good news of Christ? … Beloved, pray for those divine appointments and watch how the Lord works in and through you…

22 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance…

Set Apart in Christ

God’s Word: You can be sure of this:

The Lord set apart the godly for himself.

The Lord will answer when I call to him. Psalm 4:3

Psalm 4
1 Answer me when I call to you,
O God who declares me innocent.
Free me from my troubles.
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
2 How long will you people ruin my reputation?
How long will you make groundless accusations?
How long will you continue your lies? Interlude
3 You can be sure of this:
The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to him.
4 Don’t sin by letting anger control you.
Think about it overnight and remain silent. Interlude
5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit,
and trust the Lord.
6 Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”
Let your face smile on us, Lord.
7 You have given me greater joy
than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

Wisdom Shared:  Beloved … You have been set apart in Christ. More importantly you are loved!  When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior; You are empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit through the joy  of the Lord-Christ who gives us strength.  There is no other power in entire universe that can bring us peace in our troubles… healing that leads to restoration – through redemption. Last month we celebrated Christ’ birth that brings salvation to one and all. Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us. Ephesians 5:2 NIV ~  It is a priceless gift bring us to his eternal glory!  Submission unto Him, brings great reward.  Even in our time of suffering he empowers us for glory.  Our story becomes HIS-STORY of love grace through the glory of the Lord.  Yes, beloved you are a living testimony of God’s loving grace.  My Encouragement for you Beloved; …I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NLT – New Living Translation
