prayer: BETTER, HAPPIER, MORE PROFITABLE, MORE TO BE DESIRED - 02/02/13 08:16 PM
PSALM 84:10 Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
BARNES' NOTES For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand - Better - happier - more profitable - more to be desired - than a thousand days spent elsewhere. That is, I should find more happiness - more true joy - in one day spent in the house of God, in his worship, in the exercises of true religion - more that will be satisfactory to the … (2 comments)

prayer: GREATNESS - 02/02/13 09:05 AM
The greatness of a person is measured by service to others. Christ set the example.
MATTHEW 20:26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
GILL'S EXPOSITION whoever would be reckoned a great man in the kingdom of Christ, or under the Gospel dispensation, must be a minister to others if he is desirous of being truly great in the esteem of God, and of men, he must do great service for Christ, and to the souls of men; and seek to bring great glory to God, by faithfully ministering the word and ordinances, and by … (2 comments)

prayer: A DIAMOND - 02/01/13 08:14 PM
A diamond comes from heat, pressure, and having more to bear than it seems it can withstand. But the end result is strength, beauty and something valuable. 
PHILIPPIANS 1:6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

prayer: ORANGE YOU GLAD IT'S FRIDAY? - 01/31/13 07:01 PM
PHILIPPIANS 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
BARNE'S NOTES It is the privilege of Christians to do this, not at certain periods and at distant intervals, but at all times they may rejoice that there is a God and Saviour; they may rejoice in the character, law, and government of God - in his promises, and in communion with him. The Christian, therefore, may be, and should be, always a happy man. If everything else changes, yet the Lord does not change; if the sources of all other joy are dried up, yet this is not; … (3 comments)

prayer: SING A NEW SONG - 01/29/13 08:27 PM
PSALM 33:3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
BARNES' NOTES Sing unto him a new song - exhibiting some new phase of the divine goodness, demanded new language appropriate to them.
Play skillfully with a loud noise - That is, do the work well,
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY The very endowment we possess, should be employed with all our skill and earnestness in God's service. His promises are all wise and good. His word is right, and therefore we are only in the right when we agree with it. His works are all done in truth. He is the righteous … (1 comments)

prayer: THIS SUNDAY Feb. 3, 2013, 1:00 p.m., Pray for Your Legislators Day - 01/28/13 08:49 PM
THIS SUNDAY Feb. 3, 2013, 1:00 p.m., Pray for Your Legislators Day
Pray for Your Legislators Day is an annual event at the Oklahoma State Capitol that is always held on the Sunday before the Monday that the new session starts
1 TIMOTHY 2:1-4 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of … (0 comments)

prayer: STRONG AND IMMOVABLE - 01/28/13 07:58 PM
1 CORINTHIANS 15:58 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
BARNES' NOTES Always engaged in doing the will of God; in promoting his glory, and advancing his kingdom. The phrase means not only to be engaged in this, but to be engaged diligently, laboriously; excelling in this. The "work of the Lord" here means that which the Lord requires; all the appropriate duties of Christians. Paul exhorts them to practice every Christian virtue, and to do all that they could do … (0 comments)

prayer: BE KIND AND ENCOURAGING - 01/27/13 07:53 PM
EPHESIANS 4:32 And be you kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you.
BARNES' NOTES Christianity produces true courteousness, or politeness. It does not make one rough, crabby, or sour; nor does it dispose its followers to violate the proper rules of social contact. The secret of true politeness is "benevolence," or a desire to make others happy; and a Christian should be the most polite of people. There is no religion in a sour, misanthropic temper; none in rudeness, stiffness, and repulsiveness; none in violating the rules of good breeding. There is a … (2 comments)

prayer: GRACE - 01/27/13 06:13 AM
Grace doesn't promise the absence of struggle, but the presence of God. 
2 CORINTHIANS 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

prayer: STRENGTH TO STRENGTH - 01/25/13 08:04 PM
With God we go from strength to strength and from glory to glory and with HIM the best is always yet to come.
EPHESIANS 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
BARNES' NOTES The Greek word used here - πάλη palē - denotes a "wrestling;" and then a struggle, fight, combat. Here it refers to the struggle or combat which the Christian has to mainrain - the Christian warfare.
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY The devils assault us … (0 comments)

prayer: COMMIT OURSELVES TO GOD'S KEEPING - 01/24/13 08:21 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 do, … (0 comments)

prayer: GOD MAKES EVERYTHING HAPPEN AT THE RIGHT TIME - 01/23/13 07:30 PM
ECCLESIASTES 3:11 CEV God makes everything happen at the right time. Yet none of us can ever fully understand all he has done, and he puts questions in our minds about the past and the future.
WESLEY'S NOTES He hath made (or doth make or do, by his providence in the government of the world) every thing (which he doth either immediately, or by the ministry of men, or other creatures) beautiful (convenient, so that, all things considered, it could not have been done better) in its time or station, (when it was most fit to be done). Many events seem to … (3 comments)

prayer: The Word of God Rules - 01/22/13 07:24 PM
PSALM 93:14 Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea - the Lord on high is mighty.
NIV STUDY The thunder of the chaotic waters is no match for the thunder of the Lord's ordering word.
