Personal Requests

Matthew 6 8

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:8

For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

God already knows your needs before you ask but He still wants to hear your request and see you exercise your faith. Before you get on your knees to pray, God’s already making a way. Coming to God in prayer for your needs shows your reliance and dependence on Him. If there’s something you need, go directly to the source. Take it to God in prayer, be bold and confident with your personal requests and always pray with the right motives and according to His will.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 1: Thankful for All of God’s Wonderful Deeds

Psalm 9 1

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:1

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching and I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I am thankful for.  This year our family went through the one of the hardest seasons we’ve had to go through together. In July, my husband was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer. Because of God’s great mercy, the cancer was found early enough for the tumor to be removed. He recovered from the surgery and did not have to have chemo therapy. For that alone, we are so grateful to God for his healing. But the story doesn’t end there. My husband is the sole supporter for our family and with him being unable to work during the recovery process we came very close to losing everything we have. But God made a way where there was no way. The Lord put it in the heart of many to help us along the way. Every time I thought we were at the end of the road the Lord opened up a new door. I was repeatedly reminded of God’s goodness as He kept showing us time after time that if we trust in Him, He will make a way. Through it all, my faith has been made stronger and I am so thankful for my relationship with the Lord and for His amazing grace. My heart is filled with gratitude for all the things He has done for us. He has renewed my spirit and because of this I am so thankful and like David, I want to share His wonderful deeds and goodness with the world.

Be Strong & Don’t Give Up

2 Chronicles 15 7

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Chronicles 15:7

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.

 

We all have times when we feel discouraged and we feel like giving up and quitting.  If the Lord has put a “work” in your heart He will make a way for you to do it.  That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, because it might be, but that’s okay because God is on your side. What you do for God, and for his honor and service, will not be overlooked. Be strong and don’t give up!
