The Big Little Word.

Christ, WILL LEAD

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. 1 John 5:14-15 New King James Version                                                                                                                                

Do you notice the important key word in this passage?                                                   

It is IF.                                                                                                                                            

In other words we are to pray for Gods will to be done in any situation we are asking help in instead of our will.                                                                                           

Too many people in the Christian community mistakenly pray for our will to be done in a situation instead of Gods will.  Sometimes it will not be the answer you want, however God see’s the big picture while we see only the little one.                                                                                         

For example I prayed the Lord bless me with getting a contract and he did not give it to me when I really needed the money.                                                                              

I was very disappointed.                                                                                               

However, a couple of months later I found out the employer cheated all his employees out of their wages.   Boy was I ever glad I did not get that contract.

That is why we must trust the Lord is doing what is right for us even when it does not look like it to us.                                                                                       

  I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.   Psalms 34:4  New International Version 

                                                                                                                   

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be open and obedient to Your wise word even if it is not what the answer is not the one I desire.  I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient to You even to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                              

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Do All in the Name Of.

awsome exploding pink red and yellow rose

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17 New King James Version

Every day I pray for the Lord to guide my words and actions that it will bring praise and glory to Him. That is all that counts to me.

Others may ridicule me and chastise me but I do not care, I am secure in knowing hat I am pleasing He whom I love dearly.  And believe me, in todays world there is a lot more chastisement and ridicule than praise.

“How would telling people to be nice to one another get a man crucified? What government would execute Mister Rodgers or Captain Kangaroo?” Philip Yancey

When some praise me I am sure to deflect the praise to Christ.

And you know what?

For every opportunity that arises no matter how big or small when I serve my Master my heart is so filled with blissfulness I cannot but help just close my eyes right there on the spot and joyfully thank Him for the blessing of serving Him by serving others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God of love) for the numerous opportunities You bless me with throughout the day to serve others in love and so serve You. I praise You for the amazing privilege in the name of my wonderful king Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                            

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
