Valiant Warrior

Armor of God

Father, so much has transpired since we were last together in this setting. Thank You for all of Your guidance and I am profoundly grateful for Your presence, especially in my time with Beth following the sudden loss of her husband. I could not have done it on my own. Thank You, for helping me get through work yesterday and for Your presence at Bible Study last night. I would ask for Your blessing on our time together this morning.

Colossians 2:1-5 (<< click here)

Lord, humanity likes to think that we are so smart and that we have everything figured out. Things that the Church has held to for centuries are now being questioned. As a pastor, and more importantly as Your child, I need to be planted firmly in my relationship with You. Truth does not change. We cannot tweak it because it not P.C. or because it no longer fits the mind set of society. Only a very small percentage of society is yielded to following Your directives, so it cannot be trusted. Our selfish desires do not build up Your kingdom. We claim great wisdom and knowledge but only in You, Lord, do we find “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” v3. We are deceived if we think otherwise. We are only strong when we place our faith in You.

Lord, strengthen my faith; fill me with Your wisdom. I would ask that You would enable me to discern Your will in all aspects of life. Help me to remember that we do not fight “against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 Help me to be valiant warrior of LOVE. To be strong and courageous, to not give up or give in but to fight bravely and to love mightily!

Pierce Through the Clouds

pierce through the clouds

Father, what a beautiful day is at hand…and not just because the sun is shining and the grass is green. It’s a clean slate, as the beginning of each new day is. A day fresh with possibilities and opportunities to do what You have called us to do. A glorious day to share Your love with all those around us. Thank You, Father, for this wonderful gift!

Ephesians 6:5-9 (<<click this)

“Serve them (your employers) sincerely as you would serve Christ.” vs. 5b

 Sincerely: genuinely, honestly, truly wholeheartedly,                        earnestly,fervently

Lord, You had me focus on the one particular family in my life this morning. I know that You sincerely love them and want what is best for them. Please be with their granddaughter this beautiful day. Pierce thru the clouds and disillusionment and give her Your wisdom and clarity!  By whatever means help her to lay ahold of the truth found only in You. Whatever direction she takes may You, Lord, be at its core. Lord, I claim her for You and You alone. Satan – hands off!! You are defeated, any victories you’ve had are short lived!!  Jesus I claim victory over this whole situation in the power and might of Your name – Your resurrection power will overcome. Help her Lord, she needs You!  You are the answer she needs!  Jesus please make yourself known to her in a clear and mighty way!  AMEN!!!*
