Riches Beyond Money

Morning Inspiration: "Give me eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money! Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word." Psalm 119:36-37 This writer had the spiritual wisdom to ask for something unnatural; a desire for God’s Word that was stronger than his love of money! Wise believers learn to ‘Keep a Light Touch’ on material things. No matter how much we think they will improve our lives; every single one of them will wear out or lose their luster. Scripture teaches that everything in this world will eventually rot, rust or burn. God's Word is different, because it is eternal. Jesus said the heavens and earth will melt away, but his words will be with us forever. Hold on tight to scripture, considering it as your greatest treasure. Living a life true to God’s Word, brings eternal rewards, beyond human measure.

Becoming Great With Jesus

Morning Inspiration: ”The greatest among you must be a servant.” Jesus, quoted in Matthew 23:11 Direct. Clear. Powerful! Jesus wastes no words in letting us know that to be considered great in His Kingdom, we must make ourselves nothing in ours. A true servant is not interested in pleasing himself, but only in doing his best for those he is dedicated to serve. Jesus Himself, the King of Kings, came to us as a humble servant. We in turn, are expected to humble ourselves to serve others, because in doing so, we are serving our Savior. How ‘great’ can we each be today?

Being Blessed In Life AND Death!

Morning Inspiration! And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this down: Blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they are blessed indeed, for they will rest from their hard work; for their good deeds follow them!” Revelation 14:13 For those who love and faithfully serve Jesus, this short passage holds SO much promise and hope in our near future! For starters, God promises some much needed rest from all our hard work here on earth. Our good deeds don’t earn us a spot in heaven; that is a free gift, through our faith in Jesus. Yet the good and kind things we do in the name of Jesus, will create unimaginable blessings that will follow us through paradise, for ALL of eternity! So what are we waiting for? Let’s each get to work on the spiritual harvest for our Lord & Savior! Because even as we come closer to death in this life, we grow closer to being blessed in the next!

Spiritually Beautiful Feet?

Morning Inspiration! For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!” Romans 10:13–15 Paul asks a series of logical questions concerning the Good News that we call The Gospel. He reminds us of Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!” Our feet are more often thought of as functional than beautiful. Yet his point is perfect. When we use our feet for the function of sharing the Good News of Jesus, they become a beautiful thing! Determine today to begin ‘taking the steps’ towards telling others abo…

Asking God To Pray For You!

Morning Inspiration! And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t always know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. Romans 8:26–27 There are many times in life, when we feel so overwhelmed, that we don’t even know what to pray for. This passage shows us, that no matter what we are facing, God understands. When we feel helpless or even hopeless, we actually have the ability to have God’s Holy Spirit pray for us. Jesus knows how we feel, and what we need to do. So when we have trouble figuring out even where to begin or what to ask the Lord for, his Holy Spirit already knows the answer! Ask the Holy Spirit to intercede (to pray for you). God always wants us to follow his will, in our lives. His Holy Spirit inspires, so we can follow our Lord’s desire…

Praising God In Tough Times

Morning Inspiration! Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! Habakkuk 3:17–18 This prophet lived during an extremely troubling and difficult time for his people. Like most of us, he questioned why there was evil in the world, and why the wicked seemed to be winning. He humbly took his questions to the Lord. God set his heart at ease, helping him realize that even in the worst of times, there is so much we should be grateful for. Habakkuk did that by taking his focus off of himself and looking to the Lord instead. His prayer rings true for many of us today. Life is not always easy or fun. It’s often difficult and painful. We don’t have to be controlled by current circumstances or our lack of personal strength. Once we learn…

Our Responsibility To The Lord

Morning Inspiration: For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. 2nd Corinthians 5:10 When we come to understand the consequences of sin, & the freedom that Jesus grants us from it, through this grace...we change. Everything from our thoughts, to our words & actions, take on new meaning. One thing that becomes extremely important to us, is the well being of others. As God’s ambassadors on this earth, we are called to represent Him, through our love for all those we deal with. Loving others deeply, involves telling them the truth of God’s Word, as well as showing them His truth through the way we live.
