Daily Devotional for Feb 3, 2016

I have been coming across some excellent quotes from my morning devotionals.The first one comes from Joyce Meyers – Hearing from God Each Morning
“Don’t make serious decisions without waiting to make sure true peace abides within you.”
There was a time when I was working out and 3 miles into my run, I had a “vision” on what my future should be like. I let my mind and imagination take me to places that were exciting. I was so excited and could not wait for all this this to come to fruition. By the next day as I was getting ready for my day, I start to really evaluate all that I was thinking yesterday. It was only then that I realized that everything I was “excited” for would have had a negative affect on all the wonderful things I have already done in my life (personal and professional). I learned a valuable lesson that day. Take your time and examine your heart and mind to its deepest part to know if what you are thinking/feeling is coming from the lord. Talk to Him…ask HIM…
The Second quote comes from podcast on Jan 7 from Rick Warren.
Worry, lust, revenge is a misuse of your imagination
We cannot imagine how great he is, how much he loves you, cannot imagine what heaven is like. Think about things that are pure, love and admirable.
This really complements the first quote. The Lord wants us to use our imagination…we just have to use it in the right way.
Have a good day…God Bless and may the Lord use us all to create change in this world.

The storm that didn’t come.

  
Life is full of unexpected events.  No matter how “prepared” you are, life can (and will) throw you a curve ball.  This was the case for me yesterday.  The southern USA was experiencing strong storms with the possibility of tornadoes.  I was nervous going to bed because the forecast called for severe storms to arrive around 1:00 am.  I said a quick prayer asking the lord to bring peace into my life.  It was then that a feeling came into my spirit. It was just in me to now “relax”.  I was no longer worried and it was just placed in my heart that everything will be alright.  In the end, the storms passed and we slept thru the night.  

Keep God close an you will be embolden to not fear anything on this earth.  Be safe everyone and be comforted that our Lord has risen from the dead.

Earthly work can honor the Lord. 

  
I had this verse ready to go but just had a feeling in me to wait before posting. 

Work is work and work is indeed tough. 24 hours a day just doesn’t seem like it’s enough time. We all get rushed and in return we get cranky. 

I am being led to say that there is someone out there that needs to read this verse. Anything you do, do it for God and his glory. We cannot fathom the greatness and intellectual of our God. Do your work to honor him…who knows what God will use you for. 

Jesus died and rose again so that we may live. 

Amen. 

Daily Bible Verse – 08/10/15

  
How should a Christian act? How should a Christian feel about a certain topic? How should a person of God feel about cultural events? How should WE feel when our enemies are plotting against us?  The answer is love. It’s always been about love. 

31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭31-32‬ NLT)

Why be an undercover Christian? Live life!
