BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT TRUST IN THE LORD


God's Prayer Power ~ Session 23




Scripture Today: Jeremiah 17:7

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is" (KJV)


What is God saying?


We are Blessed. 

That we are blessed if we trust in the Lord. Blessed is a wonderful word. One of the meanings is happy. Not as the world says happy, but happy in Christ. Joyful. Peaceful. Blissful. Content. You see, regardless of what goes on around us, if we are trusting in God, then we know we don't have to be moved by those things. Why? Because we have put our total trust in Him.

Trust in Him.

A firm belief in the Lord, in His strength. Having confidence in Him to do what He says.


Hope in Him

Our hope is in Him. Not in the world. Not in man. But in our wonderful Lord. Hope is
expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.





Prayer

My trust is in You, Lord. That is why I can surrender our children and the children
in our world into Your hands.  I know You are working in their situations  and in their lives and their hearts. I trust You to provide and protect  them in all circumstances and to work things out in their lives for Your glory and their good. I trust You will  restore a right relationship with You. I know You are working in their lives. To bring about Your perfect will  in each one of them spiritually, physically,  financially, mentally and emotionally. My hope is in You Lord.  Amen





May God bless you and your family in the coming week.

KNOW FULLY WHAT GOD WANTS


God's Prayer Power ~ Session 22




Scri
pture today: Colossians 1:9-14


"Since the day we heard this about you, we have continued praying for you. We ask God that you will know fully what God wants. We pray that you will also have great wisdom and understanding in spiritual things. Then you will live the kind of life that honors and pleases the Lord in every way. You will produce fruit in every good work and grow in the knowledge of God. Then God will strengthen you with his own great power. And you will not give up when troubles come, but you will be patient. Then you will joyfully give thanks to the Father. He has made you able to have all that he has prepared for his people who live in the light. God made us free from the power of darkness, and he brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son. The Son paid for our sins, and in him we have forgiveness." (
ICB)
 

What is God saying?


God wants His children to have great wisdom and understanding in spiritual things throughout our lives here on earth because He know we need this in order to live the life He wants for us. There is much chaos in this world, and if we don't have wisdom and knowledge of our precious Lord, we can get side tracked, tricked, manipulated, and be harmed.




Why does He want us to have this?

So we will live the kind of life that honors Him and pleases Him in every way. Also, we will produce fruit in every good work we undertake and grow in Him.


What does God give us?

God will strengthen us with his own great power. And we will not give up when troubles come, but we will be patient. Then we will joyfully give thanks to the Father. 


God's Gifts!

He has made us able to have all that he has prepared for his people who live in the light. God made us free from the power of darkness, and he brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son. The Son paid for our sins, and in him we have forgiveness.







                                                             
Prayer



My desire Lord is for me and my family to be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. I desire to walk worthy of You, to please You, and to be fruitful in every good work.

I seek to increase in the knowledge of You and be strengthened with all might according to Your glorious power. I strive to be patient and long-suffering with joyfulness giving thanks to You who has made us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints –– You who delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of Your dear Son in whom we have redemption through His blood even to the forgiveness of sins. Amen









May God bless you in the coming week.



Blessings to you and your family.

GOD WILL TAKE YOUR BURDENS


God's Prayer Power ~ Session 21



Scripture today is: 2 Peter 5:7


"Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you." (ICB)



What is God saying?


God wants you to give Him all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, everything that is causing you to not be in peace. And He wants you to give them all to Him now.


Everytime something comes up that tries to make you anxious or worried, just say no. Say, "I refuse to take that upon my self. I cast that now over on God trusting Him to handle it."


It is important to God for His children to trust in Him to help them as they walk this journey. He does not want us to worry but to be in peace.





Prayer


All good things come from You Lord. I know this deep in my heart. Yet there are times I allow my burdens to become so heavy that the weight is debilitating. I have tried to carry them when I forget Your words. Then You bring to my remembrance Your words that tell me to cast my burdens on You. Put them in Your hands. You will take them and then my load will be light. Thank You for taking these burdens and freeing me to think on You and not them. Amen






May God bless you in the coming week.

 

Blessings to you and your family.

EXPERIENCE HIS LOVE




God's Prayer Power ~ Session 20


Our scripture today is: Ephesians 3:16-21


"I ask the Father in his great glory to give you the power to be strong in spirit. He will give you that strength through his Spirit. I pray that Christ will live in your hearts because of your faith. I pray that your life will be strong in love and be built on love. And I pray that you and all God’s holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ’s love. I pray that you can understand how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is. Christ’s love is greater than any person can ever know. But I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with the fullness of God. With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of. To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever." Amen.




What is God saying to us in our scripture today?


God will give you that strength through His Spirit. What strength? To be strong in spirit. If you read this scripture written by Paul, He is telling them He is asking the Father to give them, the people, the power to be strong in spirit. He goes on to say. . .God will give this strength through His Spirit. The Holy Spirit.


Who needs to live in our hearts?


We are to let Christ live in our hearts.


How do we do that?


We do that by our faith.


More than ever, today, we need our lives to be strong in love and to be built on love. Let us ask God to give us the power to understand the greatness of Christ's love for us and how much he truly loves us. To know how much he loves us takes us to depths we have not been. To fully grasp this love so we can be filled with the fullness of God. We need God's power working in us. We cannot comprehend how much more God can do in our lives and for us unless we have the power of God working in us.


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

I come before Your throne of grace with praise and thanksgiving for all You have done for me. I bring my desires to You requesting You grant me blessings and answers according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I ask to be strengthened with might by Your Spirit in my inner man. I ask that Christ dwell in my heart by faith all the days of my life and that I be rooted and grounded in love. Let me comprehend and know how much You love me. I pray You might fill me with all the fulness of God. Do not let me become slack, or take for granted how much You love me. Amen




God Bless You and Your Family.
