My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Father God, all that we are and all that we can be depends on whether or not we have chosen to have a relationship with You. Remind us all, Lord, without You, there is no salvation, just dishonor and condemnation. Help us all, Lord, to seek refuge in the comfort of Your arms. Amen. Love to all!!

But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear Him, and His righteousness with their children’s children— with those who keep His covenant and remember to obey His precepts.
Father God, for generations Your love has not changed for Your children. Lord, forgive those of this generation that are unrighteous and that no longer fear You and no longer obey Your precepts
(commands). Help us all, Lord, to renew the covenants of old as we renew our daily walks with You. Amen. Love to all!!

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.
Father God, thank You for the salvation that You offer. Lord, remind us that when we say "Yes" to that salvation, it is then, that we start living
a self-controlled, upright, godly life, learning how to say "No" to the ungodly and unholy things that keeps us from gaining our salvation. Amen. Love to all!!

As goods increase,
so do those who consume them.
And what benefit are they to the owners
except to feast their eyes on them?
Father God, You never said You did not want us to have, but we need to understand that all we have is Yours, and all You have created is Yours, and if we do not take in the Spirit of Jesus, we will not have a place in all that You own. Amen. Love to all!!

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Father God, thank You for supplying the peace, that comes from knowing Your Son, Jesus Christ. Lord, You have made it possible for us all to know and have peace, please, help us all to choose Jesus and the peace He brings. Amen. Love to all!!

In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for You alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Father God, thank You, that when we start to believe and come to know You, we can lay down and sleep in the safety of Your hands, with the assurance that we are a child of God. Help us all, Lord, to know this peace that surpasses all understanding. Amen. Love to all!!

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
Father God, thank You for the peace that is available to all who will believe in Your Son, Jesus Christ. Lord, You have given us all more than we deserve but, some still don't live in peace because they haven't found Jesus. Help us, Lord, to find the Jesus of peace as we learn to live as He lived. Amen. Love to all!!

Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Father God, You created mankind with flesh and bone and You gave each one a soul. As we live in the flesh we have many choices and decisions to make in life and the evil of Satan and the world can be a big distraction, when it comes to being tempted in the flesh. But, You, Lord, give us a way to not let the temptation pull us in. You gave us, Your Son, Jesus Christ, and through His Spirit, we can choose to have Him live within the fleshly body, helping us to fight off Satan and the things of the world, when the flesh is weak. Thank You, Lord, for planning everything the way You have for all of mankind. Help us to pray to You, knowing that You hear our prayers and knowing that the Spirit will strengthen us to stay focused on Jesus, as we watch and wait for His return. Amen. Love to all!!

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?”
Father God, help us all to be so busy seeking You and looking into Your word that we have no time to be looking at what others are doing or not doing. Lord, keep us from trying to find flaws in others and remind us, that when we act like that, we are usually trying to make ourselves feel better about our own flaws. Help us, Lord, to be real with You as You teach us how to be real with others. Amen. Love to all!!

If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Father God, help us all to do just as Your word says, become humble, pray constantly, and seek You and Your word, on a daily basis. Help us, Lord, to let the way we think, act, talk, walk, and treat others, be a reflection of our learning Your ways and honoring You in the way we live our lives. Amen. Love to all!!

Pride brings a person low,
but the lowly in spirit gain honor.
Father God, when it comes to pride, You give us all two choices, we can be proud that we have chosen to be a child of Yours, or, we can boast that we've got this (life)! Lord, please, help us to never let our pride make us think we know what's best for our own lives better than You do. Help us to taste that sweet Spirit, and let the Spirit, show us how to honor You.
Amen. Love to all!!

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Father God, thank You for the privilege to be able to do the work of Your ministry. To be able to share You, Your word, and tell others our story. You give us all the same opportunities when it comes to serving You and others. We can choose, as the old saying goes, "to stand for something, or stand for nothing at all." Lord, help us all, to realize that being a laborer in Your ministry, taking a stand for what is right, what is godly, what is going to make a difference, for us and others, that is what is pleasing to the God that loves His children. Amen. Love to all!!
Please, see how appropriate God's word is for everyday that He gives us. Have a safe and Happy Labor Day!!

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Father God, thank You that we have the choice, to be crucified, with You, and come to understand the true meaning of it. To live in this fleshly body, but to have the Spirit of the Lord, leading our thoughts and actions, only a personal relationship with You can do that. Help us, Lord, to live for the Spirit, that is within us, as we do the work, of our Lord, God, and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. Love to all!!

I will hasten and not delay
to obey your commands.
Father God, what a privilege it is to be able to know You and to learn the commands You have laid out for us to follow, so that we might live the kind of life You know is best for those who will come to You. Lord, help us to be so in tune with that Sweet Spirit, help us to not only hear Your commands, but, help us to not hesitate in making our lives better, by living out those commands. Amen. Love to all!!

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
Father God, thank You for the promise and hope You left us with. Help us to stay focused, moving forward, forgetting about the day we are living in, because that next day, if You so choose, could be that final day. You said You would come again, Lord, we pray that when You do, Your children will be found, busy, doing Your work. Lord, help us all, to live and walk with our heads up, at all times, watching and being patient and ready to rejoice at Your coming. Amen. Love to all!!

And, once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him.

The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all.
Father God, thank You for always being there to deliver us from troubles when they come into our lives. Try as we may, Lord, You know it is a struggle to be righteous in Your eyes all the time. Help us all, Lord, to not take the grace and mercy that You show, when we are unrighteous, for granted. Lord, strengthen us in our daily walks as we seek You and Your guidance. Amen. Love to all!!

By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
Thank You, for being the light of love that leads us through our daily journey of getting to You. Lord, as well, You watch over us in the darkness through our dreams, as we sleep in comfort, safety,and peace, like a song that stills the Spirit within us,You are whispering in our ear all the wonderful things You have planned for us. Thank You, Lord, that we can arise each day rested, refreshed, renewed, safe, and loved, ready to walk in the Spirit, helping and showing others the way. Amen. Love to all!!

It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in humans.
Father God, You teach us to love one another for who they are and accept one another just as they are. Lord, too many times we try to change people to think like we think and if we succeed, then, we can accept them. When that happens we have gained a person's trust but, we have not done it in a godly manner. So, when we enter into any kind of relationship without You being in it, we open up ourself to mistakes. First, You got left out, second, we put our trust in self (man), what do we know? We are lost without having You, the Savior, involved in our lives and us putting our trust in You and everything we do and say. Help us all, Lord, to trust You, to put You first, to treat others with a Christ-like attitude, and when we accept others into our lives, Lord, help both parties to know You and to put their trust in You, as we build our relationships with You and others. Amen. Love to all!!

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Father God, anytime we are in Your house, Lord, help us to come in humility and honor You. Lord, You can be found anywhere, anytime, and You are in all things. Help us all, Lord, to be confident in our seeking of You and, Lord, even when we are not very deserving of Your mercy and grace, show us what a loving God You are. As Your word says, "If you seek Me, you will find Me!" Lord, with the confidence that You give, may we never be afraid to approach You. Amen. Love to all!!

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
Father God, You created the human body for Your plan and purpose. Our bodies are the biblical vessel, temple, and tent. Lord, it is You who uses the vessel as Your hands, feet, and mouths, to carry and spread Your message. You use the temple when we come back to You and Your house, the church, and as we worship You, You nourish and fill us with the word of truth, cleanse us of our sins, and ready us for the work to be done. In the tent, we live and we dwell day by day, using the minds You have given us, making choices that affect our eternal lives. Help us all, Lord, to not let the mind of the flesh, man's way, to overpower the mind of the Spirit, Your way. Lord, You have given us free will, as well, please, help us to choose eternal life and peace with You. Amen. Love to all!!

He must become greater; I must become less.
Father God, You must be priority one, above all things, in this life. Lord, putting You before anything else is what helps us to realize the true cycle of life. When we think we don't need You in our lives and that we have got it all figured out, Lord, please, get our attention somehow, stop us in our tracks, make us realize that without You all we will do is make a mess of our lives. We want to be first, we want to think we are better than everybody else, we walk around thinking we are right and everyone else is wrong. Lord, please, help us to humble ourselves before You and start putting You first in our lives. It is only then that we might realize why we must be less and why You are greater. Forgive us all, Lord, for thinking the way we do. Amen. Love to all!!
August 22, 2019
Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior,
and my hope is in You all day long.
Father God, thank You for the truth in Your word and thank You for those who teach it through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Help us all, Lord, to know that when we put our hope in You, Your rewards are eternal. Amen. Love to all!!

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Father God, how awesome it is that everything You have touched has it's own special beauty. All that You have created for mankind is more than we deserve. Help us all, to find the beauty in the trees, the sky, the mountains, all that You have created, but most of all, help us to find the beauty in all people. You have given that to us all, be it the outward beauty or the internal beauty, we all posses that special beauty in our hearts. Your word says, we are made in Your "image." Lord, help us to be a reflection of that beautiful image You are, so that the world can see us, as who You want us to be, Your children, loving one another, sharing in the beauty of all Your creation together, and showing others the way to prepare for the eternal things that awaits Your children. Amen. Love to all!!
