The Holy Spirit to Softly

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able)2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to be able to slow down and enjoy all the wonderful beauty You graciously provide for me each and every day.

It is so easy to get caught up in the rat race where everyone is rushing to do nothing as important as spending time enjoying Your creation You desire to share with us.

Please bless me with The Holy Spirit to softly speak with me and guide when and where to sit down and enjoy companionship with You in Your beautiful creation.

Please bless me with the opportunity to teach others the amazing blessing of spending time with You in Your creation. and slow our pace to prayerfully notice You in all transitions.

Help us to pause, and teach our children to pause, in order to reflect gratefully on all we have to fill our days.

I do not want to get to the end of my days and have the greatest regret of my life in not spending enough time with You or introducing others to You in Your wonderful creation.

I humbly request this in the name of He with whom I deeply love spending time in Your amazing garden, Jesus Christ. Amen

Anointed Preaching

Preaching is preaching only when the messenger is anointed with the Holy Spirit.

The apostle Paul tells how he arrived in the city of Corinth not dependent upon self-assurance, self-assertiveness, or a powerful personality, “but in demonstration of the Spirit and power” (1 Corinthians 2:4). In fact, Paul stresses the contrasting difference, “For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God” (vv. 2-5).

Only the anointing of the Holy Spirit can make great preaching. Paul was concerned that nothing distract from the message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. We live in a day that puts much of the emphasis on the attractiveness of the clever mind and entertainment.

Lloyd-Jones was a prophet when he wrote in Preaching and Preachers, that we take “so much time in producing atmosphere that there is no time for preaching in the atmosphere!” The church has turned to entertainment “as she has turned her back upon preaching.” The first century preachers “refused to pander to the tastes of their listeners.” They did just the opposite by admonishing, warning, rebuking, and reproving their listeners.

Over and over again in the book of Acts we are told of the preachers “being filled with the Holy Spirit.” They proclaimed their message as the Holy Spirit enabled them. Their message and deliverance were under the control of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit had baptized them when they first believed, and they had been filled on many occasions since then. One baptism, many fillings is still a Biblical truth for every preacher.

Biblical preaching is still the greatest instrument the church possesses. Every preacher should ask himself, “Do I have the anointing?” And “if not, why not?” Unless we have the sweet anointing of God’s Spirit we cannot bring the message of the Gospel with authority and power. “Am I anointed by the Holy Spirit?”

When we come with the holy anointing we will be as John the Baptist saying, “I must decrease; He just increase.” “I am a voice,” and nothing else.

How do we know when we have the anointing? The apostle Paul said, “Our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much assurance” (1 Thessalonians 1:5). Who gives the assurance and the power? Only the Holy Spirit can do that.

But it is not just the preacher who needs to be under the control of the Holy Spirit. His desire is to fill ordinary people with extraordinary power. Every anointed preacher longs to have anointed listeners!

We need the continuous infilling of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Men will listen to what we speak, souls will be saved, and saints edified when we are “filled by the Holy Spirit.”

“It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:21), and it still does.

The anointed preaching God uses is preaching that is centered in the Bible. It let’s the Bible tell its own eternal message. On the road to Emmaus the resurrected Jesus explained to two disciples that He was found in “all the Scriptures.” Thus Biblical preaching is Christ-centered. Since the sermon is biblical, and the Bible is Christ-centered, then a biblical sermon is filled with Jesus Christ. Because Christianity is Christ, all anointed preaching is centered on the person and atoning work of Jesus Christ (John 15:2616:14). The Spirit of God is at work whenever and wherever men are being pointed to Jesus Christ. Anointed preaching declares that God sent Jesus to die for our sins and calls men and women to turn and put their faith in Him for salvation (1 Cor. 15:3-6). We need bold, biblical, Christ-centered preaching in our day. That is anointed preaching.Selah!

For Our Loved Ones

Everyone tried to touch him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone. Luke 6:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Jehovah Rapha (God my healer Jeremiah 33:6 ) You are my healer

The greatest reflection of Your healing love was Jesus coming down from Heaven, not only to be present among us, but sacrifice His life for us on the cross.

Through His gift of grace, I am able to be healed beyond what is possible on this earth.

Sometimes, in the depths of the most agonizing emotional, physical or spiritual agony, You bless me with The Holy Spirit to softly, gently touch me and make me whole again.

I pray for healing in the depths of those I know who are suffering.

May I use this experience to share Your wonderful healing love with others.

I pray for healing from ailments and sickness that I can see and feel now, and from the sin that is hidden in me which infect my spirit. You know all, see all, and care for all in Your perfect love, You heal all.

I humbly praise you and request this in the name of the greatest Healer, Jesus Christ. Amen

Always in Abundant Supply

Jesus Christ is all-sufficient to meet our every need, but if He is going to meet our needs we must be willing to recognize our needs and call upon Him. There must be a turning to Him for help. He can supply every spiritual need we face in life if we respond to His abiding presence.

At the feeding of the five thousand Jesus provided food in abundance, and it is always that way with God (Matt. 14:15-21Mk. 6:33-44Lk. 9:12-17Jn. 6:1-15). The interesting thing is Jesus initiated the feeding of the people. He knew in advance that He was going to meet their need. He was interested in their welfare. He was able to do it.

What is your attitude toward being fed by God? Do you feed upon Him?

God never ceases granting our petitions until we cease asking. True, He does not always answer the way we would choose, but it is always with our very best in His mind. I thank God that He has not always granted my requests from my selfish, ignorant perspective. He often says no, in order to give me His very best.

Jesus is ever coming to bankrupt sinners and placing His hand on the bank draft of heaven and says to us, “Write on it what you need.”

We have so little faith in things unseen and eternal. We draw so little on the resources of our heavenly Intercessor. “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.”

Have you humbly asked God to supply your needs from His all-sufficiency? He is able. Jesus tells us He is always willing to fill our empty buckets.

The wise person recognizes his need and asks God to meet every need as it arises.

God has not forgotten where you are. He is fully aware of your need and He is vitally concerned about your Christian life. He will supply all your need according to His abundant resources in accordance with His eternal purpose.

How do the circumstances of your life fit into His will? Is He not committed to your very best? Does He not see the full span of your life and your current life situation?

Has God forgotten you? Indeed not.

He does not base His giving on our merits, yet He invites us to come to Him again and again. His abundant supply never runs out.

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).Selah!

Guard You From The

But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense Psalm 89:18 ) I come to You with the fears of what is happening this world in prayer for Your protection.

Each day it seems as if we are going darker and darker into satans world, and so I run to You, our all-knowing God.

For the answers I do not have to protect myself and the worry that threatens to consume my days, I ask Your provident hand of peace to stretch out over me.

Please remind me You are sovereign, that nothing happens out of Your control.

For the wickedness I witness daily, and fear it will invade my own life, please provide an unexplainable calm and upholding of my faith that the whole world truly is in your hands.

Please help me to be a bright shining light in this ever darkening world so as to guide others to You.

I humbly request this in the name of The Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen

Is Natural With God.

To reward good with good, and evil with evil, is natural with God. The retributive principle applies throughout: Christians as well as non-Christians will receive according to their works.JI Packer
