prayer: WHAT IF BE BEGAN TO TREAT OUR BIBLES THE WAY WE TREAT OUR CELL PHONES - 03/25/13 08:15 PM
PSALM 103:2 ...and forget not all his benefits
GILL'S EXPOSITION and forget not all his benefits; not any of them; the least of them are not to be forgotten, being such as men are altogether unworthy of; they flow not from the merit of men, but from the mercy of God; and they are many, even innumerable; they are new every morning, and continue all the day; and how great must the sum of them be, and not one should be forgotten; and yet even good men are very apt to forget them;

prayer: THE POWER OF YOUR RIGHT HAND SAVES ME - 03/25/13 11:51 AM
PSALM 138:7,8 Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me. You reach out your hand and the power of your right hand saves me. The Lord will work out his plans for my life.
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY Divine consolations have enough in them to revive us, even when we walk in the midst of troubles. And God will save his own people that they may be revived by the Holy Spirit, the Giver of life and holiness. If we give to God the glory of his mercy, we may take to ourselves the comfort. This confidence will not do away, … (1 comments)

prayer: WHEREVER SHE WENT HAPPY BLOOMED - 03/25/13 07:05 AM
I stopped by Hobby Lobby to get some easter basket ribbon...look what I saw...this sofa says, wherever she went happy bloomed. #That'sPowerful #ToGodBeALLTheGlory
JOSHUA 1:9 ...the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

prayer: LOVE SET UPON GOD - 03/24/13 08:20 PM
PSALM 91:14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness--trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
THE TREASURY OF DAVID When the heart is enamoured of the Lord, all taken up with him, and intensely attached to him, the Lord will recognise the sacred flame, and preserve the man who bears it in his bosom. It is love, - love set upon God, which is the distinguishing mark … (1 comments)

prayer: THERE IS AN URGENCY IN THIS HOUR - 03/23/13 09:54 PM
Today is Palm Sunday
MARK 11:9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, "Hosanna!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" 
Hosanna is a word from Hebrew that means “please save us” and is used in praise and supplication. 
There is an urgency in this hour...

prayer: THOSE WHO LOVE GOD - 03/22/13 09:43 PM
1 JOHN 4:21 The commandment we have from him is this: those who love God must love their brothers and sisters also.
CLARKE'S COMMENTARY This commandment have we - We should love one another, and love our neighbor as ourselves. The love of God and the love of man can never be separated; he who loves God will love his brother; he who loves his brother gives this proof that he loves God, because he loves with a measure of that love which, in its infinitude, dwells in God.

prayer: BE PROACTIVE - 03/22/13 08:40 AM
Be proactive in giving your mind a preventative remedy against confusion.
PHILIPPIANS 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

prayer: LOOK NOT ONLY TO YOUR OWN INTERESTS - 03/21/13 08:42 PM
PHILIPPIANS 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
BARNES' NOTES There are circumstances where it is proper to look with special interest on the temporal concerns of others. The afflicted must be sought out in order to be aided and relieved. They are too retiring and modest to press their situation on the attention of others, and they need that others should manifest a generous care in their welfare in order to relieve them. This is not improper interference in their concerns, nor will it be so regarded.

prayer: THE LORD IS ENTHRONED UPON...PRAISES - 03/20/13 08:22 PM
When you give thanks to the Father, something happens to your heart and mind. The tension within you relaxes, and your spirit is lifted and refreshed. This is because through your praise, you acknowledge it is the Lord working, despite what you can see, and He alone deserves to have authority in your life. 
PSALM 22:3 tells us the Lord is enthroned upon...praises.

prayer: FOR TO YOU, O LORD, I LIFT UP MY SOUL - 03/19/13 09:08 PM
PSALM 86:4 Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY The best self-preservation is to commit ourselves to God's keeping. I am one whom thou favourest, hast set apart for thyself, and made partaker of sanctifying grace. It is a great encouragement to prayer, to feel that we have received the converting grace of God, have learned to trust in him, and to be his servants. We may expect comfort from God, when we keep up our communion with God. God's goodness appears in two things, in giving and forgiving. Whatever others … (2 comments)

prayer: FOR WHAT DO I WAIT? - 03/19/13 07:46 AM
PSALM 39:7 And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in You.
BARNES' NOTES The expression "What wait I for?" means, what do I now expect or hope for; on what is my hope based; where do I find any cheerful, comforting views in regard to life? He had found none in the contemplation of the world itself, in man and his pursuits; in the course of things so shadowy and so mysterious; and he says now, that he turns to God to find comfort in his perplexities.
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY How blessed it is to sit loose from things here … (0 comments)

prayer: LIFE IS GOD'S GIFT - 03/18/13 09:21 PM
ECCLESIASTES 5:20 They seldom reflect on the days of their life, because God keeps them occupied with gladness of heart.
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY Life is God's gift. We must not view our calling as a drudgery, but take pleasure in the calling where God puts us. A cheerful spirit is a great blessing; it makes employments easy, and afflictions light. Having made a proper use of riches, a man will remember the days of his past life with pleasure. The manner in which Solomon refers to God as the Giver, both of life and its enjoyments, shows they ought to be received … (1 comments)

prayer: WHATEVER YOU DO - 03/17/13 08:40 PM
No job is perfect; each position has negative aspects. But we can find joy in the most menial task when we decide to work for God. Why face each day with dread when you could experience excitement and anticipation? 
COLOSSIANS 3:23,24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

prayer: I AM NOT LUCKY, I AM BLESSED - 03/16/13 08:37 PM
MALACHI 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it."
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY God has blessings ready for us, but through the weakness of our faith and the narrowness of our desires, we have not room to receive them. He who makes trial will find nothing is lost by honouring the Lord with his substance.

prayer: IF GOD INTENDS IT NOTHING CAN PREVENT IT - 03/15/13 08:49 PM
JOB 42:2 I know that You can do anything and no plan of Yours can be thwarted.
GILL'S EXPOSITION and can manage, every creature made by him, even such as were not tractable by men, such as behemoth and leviathan, the creatures last instanced in; and was able to abase and bring low the proud, which Job could not do; and could also save him by his right hand, and bring him out of his low estate in which he was, and raise him to great prosperity again,

prayer: THE LOST SHEEP - 03/15/13 09:35 AM
ISAIAH 53:6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
BARNES' NOTES For in ourselves we were scattered; in Christ we are collected together; by nature we wander, and are driven headlong toward destruction; in Christ we find the way by which we are led to the gate of life.' The condition of the race without a Redeemer is here elegantly compared to a flock without a shepherd, which wanders where it chooses, and which is exposed to all dangers.
LUKE 15:4 Suppose … (1 comments)

prayer: DON'T GIVE UP! - 03/14/13 08:35 PM
Your heart may be broken, dreams shattered and needs painfully unmet but I encourage you, "Don't give up". Throughout Scripture, the Lord invites us to petition Him with our requests, He knows our needs before we even ask and God is able to meet our needs.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
MATTHEW 6:8 ...for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
