God’s Word: Psalms 119:145-152forever

God’s Attribute: God’s Words last forever

God’s Message to me:

My Words, written hundreds of years ago, are relevant to every generation, and will remain throughout all of time and eternity.  In all the changing that happens in your life this one thing will remain constant—you can always depend upon My Word to reveal to you My best for your life.

Therefore, in all the pain and struggles you go through in life, My Word communicates My love for you.  Call out to Me and be willing to accept My guidance from My Word.  When you lie awake in the night turn to Me in prayers of gratitude and watch your attitude change.  You are alive today because you are valuable to Me.

Many have chosen the path of turning farther and farther from the truths of My Word.  They are hard on you because your faithfulness to Me gives them guilt and they hate guilt.  They have succumbed to the lure of Satan and his bottom line is to destroy faith in My people.  He knows that My Words last forever but he wants to convince mankind to turn from My Word and follow his evil ways.

God’s Question for me

Will you turn to My Word for a jump-start out of the downward spiral of your life?

God’s Promise to meIsaiah 55:11
. . .The words that come out of my mouth
not come back empty-handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do,
they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.

My Prayer to Emulate God’s Attributes:  I Pledge:

My mind: To let Your Word guide my words and deeds.

My voice:  To filter my every word through Your cleansing Word.

My heart:  To let Your love flow through me to all others.

My body:  To submit myself to serve You in all I do.


Let the Light Shine

13 Nov

God’s WordPsalms 119:129-136

God’s Attribute: God’s light shines out from His Word. Light

God’s Message to me:

As you read My Word, My Spirit interacts with your spirit, imparting My light of understanding and meaning.  And this can happen every time you open my Word.  I am eager to shed My light into your life.  Those who say they don’t read the Bible because they don’t understand it or because they have read it in the past—simply don’t get it.  I will speak to you anew each and every time to open My Word.  You will be saying “I have read this verse many times and it never said what it is saying today.”  That is My Spirit speaking directly to your heart.

My Word speaks to both the slow of understanding and the most intelligent of people.  That is because it is far more than words printed in a book.  My Word is living and through it I will steady your steps and not let anything get the better of you.  Through My Word you will escape from the grip of bad men and women so you can live victorious.

My Word teaches you the path of life where you can blossom and grow and be all that you can be.  How sad it is when mankind ignores My Words of love and search after other “spirit beings.”  I need you to testify of the values and benefits of turning to My Word often—for there you come face to face—with Me.

God’s Question for me

Will you invite My interaction with you as you regularly “feed” on My Word and let Me enlighten and bless your life?

God’s Promise to me

My Word is given to bless and prosper you and not to hinder you.

My Prayer to Emulate God’s Attributes:  I Pledge:

My mind: I recommit my devotion to Your Word and letting You speak to me anew every day.

My voice:  May I be a living testimony of the impact of Your Word on my life.

My heart: May my heart beat in tune with Yours and pursue the things of life that outlast life.

My body: I want to devote my life’s time and energy to pursuing the things You are calling me to follow

God’s Attribute: Teaches us through the textbook of life!

God’s Message to me:

Is your life going as you would like it to go?  Did any student love everything about school and their studies?  It has been said, “no pain, no gain.”  As in school, so in life—the struggles make you strong and able to help others who go through the same struggles.  I give you comfort in times of trial so that you can share that comfort with others in their time of need.

My instructions for life are embedded into the very fabric of your life.  As you weave My Word into your life—you strengthen the fabric of your life.  The strength of your fabric dictates the strength of your resolve to keep on keeping on—whatever the odds.  Yes, whatever the odds, for I am with you.

As My Word is woven into your life I am there with you.  I become your strength to go through the trials and discouragements and always—I give a silver lining to every cloud.  Make it your aim to search for the silver lining instead of focusing on the dark clouds of gloom that seem to surround you.

God’s Question for me

Will you choose to look for the silver lining instead of begrudging the darkness?

God’s Promise to me:

When My Word enters your life, it brings with it strength to face all your tomorrows in victory.   

My Prayer to Emulate God’s Attributes:  I Pledge:

My mind: To look for the silver lining instead of the shadow.

God’s Message to me:

My Word (the Bible) was given to light up the path of your life so you can see clearly.  The more you read the Word, the more light you have.  There is no need to stumble through life when I am eager to share My light with you.  When you feel like your life is falling apart you will find the guidance you need in My Word to put it back together.

The stories, sayings and rules found in My Word are there to guide you into the happiest life you could possibly have.  They are not given to hinder but to free you.  Truth frees!  When others try to throw you off track, the truths you have gleaned from My Word will keep you strong and help you see the path of your life clearly.

My Word is a book on living and it is yours forever.  My Word never changes and My promises never fail. This is My gift to you and includes with it joy unspeakable.  When you focus your life on My Word and live according to My guidelines you will experience a peace that passes understanding–no matter the circumstances of your life.

God’s Attribute: God’s Word and Truth are dependable

God’s Message to me:

Today I challenge you to never give up.  I will never give up on you.  My Word and Truth are dependable, will never go out of “style” and will carry you through whatever your tomorrows hold.  Hard times will come but I will never leave nor forsake you.  Everything human has limits and boundaries but My love and forgiveness are limitless.  Even in the hardest of times I will give you moments of unspeakable joy and peace.  Just keep hanging on. 

And not only hang on but rejoice and share the joy and peace that you receive from Me.  It is there in abundance through the darkest of times—but it lies dormant until you open the eyes of your heart and let Me lead you into My fields of delight.  And once you have had a taste of My deep joy and peace you then you will become a channel of that joy and peace into the lives of others. 

As my Word and Truth are dependable, I call you to incorporate those truths into your life and be there for others.  You be the one who others can depend upon in their times of trouble.  You are My ambassador to share My Word and Truth with those whom your life touches.  Unless you share—others may never know. 

God’s Question for me: 

Can I depend upon you to never give up sharing My Word and Truth? 

God’s Promise to me:

What I say goes, and stays, as permanent as the heavens.

My Prayer to Emulate God’s Attributes:  I Pledge:

My mind: To remember as I treat others I am treating You.

My voice:  May You encourage others through the words I speak.

My heart:  May Your love overflow from my life into others’ lives.

My body:  To use my body to honor you by honoring others. 

God’s Comforter

God’s Attribute: Gives comfort

God’s Message to me:

I knew you before you were even born.  Whatever the circumstances of your birth, I saw your life laid out before you, and provided opportunities for you to follow My path of victory.  But I gave you totally free choice to choose or reject My wisdom.  How I am honored and blest when you choose to follow Me.  Draw near to Me and I will teach you what is true and right.  My comfort will surround your life so you can live life to the fullest.  Whatever the circumstances you find yourself in—I am eager to be your Comforter.

When you fix your mind on My counsel, instead of buying into the worlds bill of goods, I will give you wisdom and a deep peace that passes all understanding.  When you walk with Me at your side you can hold your head high with confidence for you know victory is in store.  The world tries to make you fit into its mold of self-centeredness, but I call you to live a selfless life.  Receiving from Me and giving to others is what life is all about.  I give to you so you can give to others.

I give you love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control so you can give these same attributes to others.  In the same way, My comfort I give you, not just for you to be comfortable but for you to be a comforter for others.
