A Prayer of Surrender

Monday, August 22, 2016

Father, I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will. Whatever you may do, I thank you: I am ready for all, I accept all. Let only your will be done in me, and in all Your creatures - I wish no more than this, O Lord. Into your hands I commend my soul; I offer it to you with all the love of my heart, for I love you Lord, and so need to give myself, to surrender myself into your hands, without reserve, and with boundless confidence, For you are my Father. Amen.

Charles de Foucauld

Verse of the Day: John 4:23-24

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Verse of the Day for Saturday April 23rd, 2016:

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth. — John 4:23-24

Thoughts on Today's Verse....

God seeks true worshipers. He seeks those who long to praise him authentically and spirit to spirit. To help us in our quest, he gives us his Spirit to help us worship (Philippians 3:3; Jude 20; Romans 8:26-27). Most of all, he wants us to genuinely worship him — worship him according to his will and with all of our heart.

My Prayer...

Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for your Holy Spirit who is interceding even now to perfect this prayer. My heart thrills at the knowledge that you not only know me, but that you desire me to come into your presence. Please accept my feeble words and hear the emotion of my heart as I say "Thank you!" for all you have done for me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

5 Characteristics of "God-Fearers"

5 Characteristics of "God-Fearers"

Posted: 11 Apr 2016 05:15 PM PDT
Those who fear the Lord will be serious about their walk with the Lord
If we have a healthy fear of God, Scripture says we'll have these five characteristics:

1. We'll take our spiritual growth seriously.

When Paul says, "continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling," the "fear and trembling" part means deliberately, seriously, and with commitment.
Philippians 2:12-13

2. We'll take God's Word seriously. 

God looks favorably on those who "tremble" at His word. If we tremble at God's Word, we'll heed His Word above all others and be "doers" as well as "hearers." Isaiah 66:2b; James 1:22

3. We'll trust God's wisdom.

We'll never "lean on" (i.e. depend on) our "wisdom" or the "wisdom" of our world.  Proverbs 3:5-7

4. We'll share Christ.

We'll understand the importance of persuading others that Christ is the only way of salvation. 2 Corinthians 5:11

5. We'll hate sin.

We'll turn from evil, pride, arrogance, and ungodly talk. Proverbs 8:13

Which of these five would you like to ask God to help you do better?
