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.


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

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.
