Each of us has a purpose and to
be determined to fulfill this purpose, it’s important that we go to God in
prayer too. If we have the right instructions and plan for our day, we have a
better chance for things to fall into place so we accomplish more than we ever
thought we could. Then day by day, our purpose is fulfilled.
Writing and reading about faith gives one a great purpose because we can highlight thoughts or ideas that encourage, energize and inspire just like this video:Every Good Thing – The Afters.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and
approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:2
In the post Rise Up several parables are told by Jesus
to inspire us to be productive. Like the man who still had hope in the
unproductive fig tree, we can go the extra mile to work on the things in our
life that are unproductive and need a little extra care.
We may not feel good at times
but other times, we may feel lonely or we may feel inferior. Sometimes, we may just
be physically worn out but these are the things that create resistance and
ultimately make us stronger. Like the resistance when lifting weights to build
our physical muscle, we can also build up our spiritual muscle.
Examples include the resistance
of water as we swim laps to burn those extra calories or up a hill to the very top.
Without resistance, the wings of a plane can’t produce lift to fly through the
air. Without resistance to fear, there is no courage. Next time your day is
filled with some resistance, smile at it, say thank You God, and keep going.
Remember, persistence like a
stream of water eventually cuts into a rock and if we remain persistent at
focusing on the possibilities God gives, we can cut into and go through any
obstacle in our way. This day with God, ask that He keeps making you stronger and
receive inspiration from this video: Keep
Making Me – Sidewalk Prophets.
Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know
that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character, and character,
hope. – Romans 5:3
In the post Ready for His Return at all TimesI wrote about the need to pay
attention to our spiritual health; getting ready for each day by feeding our
souls with healthy thoughts and using our abilities to glorify God. At the end
of each day, we should reflect on the good or bad things of the day to draw
lessons from which to share with others.
We should pay attention to get
things in order, get pride out of the way, admit our faults, and accept Jesus
as Savior. Like predicting the weather, use discernment to see what God is
doing. Get ready, get settled with the Lord, and prepared for the battle ahead.
Here is a video to feed our soul with thoughts of a believer: Fix My Eyes on You – King and Country.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him at my right hand, I will
not be shaken. - Psalm 16:8
Life is so much more than
possessions and money. The passage studied and written about in the post Have Faith and the Lord will Provideis
about what is really important in life. If we go after possessions, there is
more stress and worry about losing them. Worry is worthless but discovering the
treasures of heaven is priceless.
God’s Word provides food for a
healthy mind, body, and soul and His Son creates light for our understanding.
We can be inspired by a praise song that brings peace and joy to our day; music
for our ears and inspiration for our souls: here’s today’s video: Beautiful Day – Jamie Grace. Enjoy!
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. – Luke 12:34
There were warnings but also
encouragement as I wrote in the post Of Most
Importance is Jesus in Our Heart. We should be inspired to be a bold and
persuasive witness through the Holy Spirit. Because of the Holy Spirit, we
receive counsel at all times to help us and here is a video poem to inspire our
day with this thought in mind: Blessings Throughout
Enable me to speak
Your word with great boldness. Stretch out Your hand to heal and perform signs
and wonders through the name of Jesus. - Acts 4:29-30
In the post Act Kind and Receive Kindness in Return, Jesus
explains the need for leaders to remove obstacles instead of creating
difficulties. The Pharisees and Layers created burdens that made the path to
God very difficult.
What Jesus has done for us is make the path to God less burdensome rather
than loaded down with the burdens of social ceremonies. In the same way, we
should not set up any social barriers.
This day with God, receive inspiration from this video and look for
opportunities to offer acts of kindness to others: Kindness Returns!
Be kind to one
another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. -
Approach each day with enthusiasm by highlighting the amazing things
around you in order to spark the interest of others. This is how you shine the
light because the amazing parts of life are from God.
Every task can be done with an attitude of praise if we are filled with
the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfill God’s purpose. Being filled is
accomplished by study of God’s Word and striving to obey God’s instructions.
So this day with God, be optimistic, celebrate, see better days ahead,
and be excited about the future. Do everything with an attitude of praise. Sing
the uplifting songs so worry will flee and the eternal light can shine forever.
After all, you are a child of the one true king: Hello My Name Is by Matthew West.
Sing to Him a new
song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. - Psalm 33:3
Written about are instructions from Jesus on how we should pray in the
post The Model Prayer. There are basic needs we have each day that we
can ask in prayer. Ask it in Jesus name as pointed out in today’s video: Your Great Name – Natalie Grant.
So I say to you: Ask
and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be
opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to
the one who knocks; the door will be opened. - Luke 11:9-10
In the study of Luke 10:1-24, I wrote that Jesus told the seventy-two
that He sent ahead of Him to pray first and then just go in confidence and
assurance that they would have great outcomes because of the power of the
This day with you Lord, we can also go in confidence and build up Your
kingdom. We pray that we get ready for the challenge of this day by going to
You first for our needs. Lord, You created all things and with Your power, we
can stir each other up to boldly step ahead and do as this video suggest: Build Your Kingdom Here - Rend
The harvest is
plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to
send out workers into his harvest field. - Luke 10:2
