THE LORD GIVES US A GIFT


God's Prayer Power ~ Session 19


Our scripture today is: John 14:27

 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid". John 14:27 (TLB)



What is God saying to us?

He is telling us He is leaving with us a gift. Leaving denotes He is going away and so because He is, He is giving us a gift that will be ours to keep.

What is the gift He is leaving with us?  

He is giving us the gift of peace of mind and heart. In other words,  He is giving us a tranquil and calmness that comes from Him. The opposite of what the world gives. Imagine, that your gift, regardless of what goes on in this world, can keep you with a peaceful heart and mind. You see this inner peace that He gives can keep us mentally and spiritually at peace––calmness that flows throughout our inner being.

He tells us that His gift, peace, is not fragile like the worlds. So accept His peace and stay in calmness and peace.

Regardless of what stress there is in the world or what goes on, this peace, if we allow it, if we draw upon it, will keep us peaceful. Because we know that God is in untilmate control, wants our best, gave us His best, His Son, and His Son gave us His peace. What a wonderful present.

What does he tell us not to do?

Do not be troubled or afraid..  John 14:1 says,  “Let not your hearts be troubled. But believe and trust in God”  God does not want us to be stressed and anxiious in our hearts, He wants us to trust and believe in Him.


Read the scripture this week, mediating on what you hear God saying to you. Write the words down what God is saying to you.


Prayer 

 Thank You, God, for giving me Your peace.

Help me to remember not look to the world to find my peace.

Let not my heart be troubled or be afraid.

I will not allow my peace to be disturbed by becoming agitated or fearful. 

Help me be diligent to not allow anyone or  circumstance to intimidate

or unsettle me  causing any doubt in my heart.

I will keep Your peace You have given me.

GOD TELLS US HOW TO BE BLESSED



God's Prayer Power ~ Session 18



Our scripture today is Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (KJV)

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.” Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (KJV)




What is God saying to us?


When we see the words, “shall come to pass” that means it will occur––in other words come about. It is going to happen. We can count on it.

God says to us, “It will come to pass (come about) if you hearken (listen) diligently (conscientious) unto the voice of the Lord thy God. We must make an effort to listen to God, if we do, we will hear His voice.

Whose voice are we supposed to listen to? The Lord our God.

And what are we supposed to do when we listen to the Lord’s voice? Observe His commandments and do all of them, which He commands us to do, each day. Why does He tell us to do this? So, He can bless us. In obeying Him He will set us on high above all nations of the earth and all His blessings will come upon us and overtake us. And what do we have to do? Obey Him.

How grateful we should be that God loves us so much He spends the time telling us how we can be blessed by Him.

There are two roads here. One is a road of blessings and one is a road of non-blessings.

We must ask ourselves, which road would we rather take? We can be joyful and blessed going down one road or we can be miserable and be in lack going down the other road.

Everything in life, requires effort, it is up to us to choose which road we want. It should be a no-brainer! Choose God’s way and live with blessings going out and coming in.


Read the scripture this week and mediate on what God is saying to you.


PRAYER

Of our country to listen to your voice.,

To be watchful and diligent

GOD IS OUR DEFENSE ~ WAIT UPON HIM



God's Prayer Power - Session 17



Our scripture today is Psalm 62:5-6




"My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved." (KJV)


What is God saying to us?


We do not have to run back and forth or be in a panic. We can rest in Him. We need to be patient and wait for God only. He is the only one who can give us hope. He is our rock. He is the one who will save us. He is like a walled city around us. He will protect us and be our defense. As long as we turn to Him and trust in Him, we will not be defeated.




Read the scripture Psalm 62:5-6 and meditate on it this week. Ask God to reveal to you His truth.

  
Prayer

Help my soul, Lord, to find rest in You alone, to realize my hope comes from You. You alone are my rock and my salvation. You are my fortress, I will not be shaken. I will wait upon You Lord and will gladly submit everything to You for it is in You I put my trust for now, and for always. Amen

HE SAYS HE WILL DO WHAT WE ASK


God's Prayer Power - Session 16


Our scripture today is John 14:13


"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (KJV)


What is God saying to us?


1. He says whatsoever. He does not stipulate this or that He uses the word whatsoever.

2. He tells us we must ask it in His name.

3. He will do it for us.

Why? So the Father may be glorified in the Son. This brings praise to God. So you will know, He does this IF we believe in Him. 



Read the scripture John 14:12-13 and meditate on it this week. Ask God to reveal to you His truth.


 Prayer

Oh God, Father of my Lord Jesus Christ I ask You to give me strength to resist temptations. Bring to my remembrance who You say I am. Fill my head with Your wisdom and my heart with Your love.Your Son’s words have told me many times  to come and ask for whatever I need in His name. Because I do this, He will be faithful to answer and do this so the Father may be glorified in the Son. I ask these things, Lord,  be done according to Your word. Amen

A PRAYER FOR GOD'S MERCY, BLESSING AND LIGHT



God's Prayer Power - Session 15


Our scripture today is Psalm 67


"God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah. That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise thee, God; let all the people praise thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.


What is God saying to us?


1. He will bless us.


2. The earth will yield her increase.


3. God will judge the people righteously



This Psalm is  a prayer to God. The prayer is asking God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us. It is also asking God to make His way known upon the earth - which means every where, every nation and His saving health unto all the nations.

I like the boldness in which the Psalmist ask first for these things from God. Then he says, let the people praise you God. Let the nations sing for joy.

If you will read this Psalm carefully, you will see that if we praise God these good things will be done for us. What are they?

1.God will judge the people righteously.
2. He will govern the nations.
3. The earth will yield her increase.
4. He will bless us.


Would you not think that all the people would be willing to praise God for these good things?

Charles Haddon Spurgeon said, " It is strange how little use we make of the spiritual blessings which God gives us, but it is stranger still how little use we make of God himself." 
                                                              

 
Prayer


God be gracious to our country and bless her. Please let Your face shine down upon this land.Let Your salvation come upon us and let Your ways be known on earth.Open the eyes, ears, and hearts of its people to receive You and know You as their Lord and Savior.Stir our hearts and put Your desires in us to want to follow You and praise You.Let all the people praise You.Help us to turn to You, to be glad and to sing for joy.Rule over the people justly and guide our nation with Your hands.Then cause our land to yield its harvest.Bless us oh God. Amen





This week spend time in Psalm 67.  Ask God what He is saying to you.
 Ask Him for revelation knowledge concerning these words.




May God bless you in the coming week. If you are in need of prayer, email sreichert48@yahoo.com.
