Heart Filled With Gladness

Happyfamily
Council for Living #5—Let your heart be filled with gladness as you recount and
help others to dwell on the goodness of God. Pray about all matters and find
ways of giving thanks to God, both in action and in words.

”Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad-hearted continually (always); Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly]; Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].” (1Thess.5:16-18, Amp)

Light Shining in Darkness

Lightintodarkness2
May the people of God be light shining in darkness. May He send them to those who are stumbling around in the darkness without answers so that they may believe and know The Answer. ”And the light shineth in darkness…” (Jn.1:5, KJV) v.6- “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. v.7- “The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.”

And Thy Memorial

Memorialstones
As the people of God assemble today, may the fame of our LORD and His name be remembered, may it be spoken as lists of petitions and concerns are made before Him in the congregations. May His character and His deeds be foremost in our thoughts that we remember and express gratitude for the One He sacrificed for our freedom.

”Thy name, O Lord, endureth for ever; and thy memorial,
O Lord, throughout all generations.” (Ps.135:13, KJV)


 


Sharpen the Ax

Axchoptree
May God’s people look to and ask for His wisdom so that they may have sharp
minds to bring down that which resists the advancing of righteousness in their
lives and spheres of influence. May they succeed by deftly cutting through that
which has stood like towering trees opposing their momentum.

“Using a dull ax requires great strength, so sharpen the blade.
That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed.”(Eccl.10:10, NLT)


 


Salt That Savors

Saltpouringout
May the people of God, in all seasons and locations be salt that savors bland, hopeless lives bringing life and hope for today and tomorrow. “Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.” (Matt.5:13, Msg)

Your Home #30

Divertsign
Your Home #30—May the Lord divert sabotage away from your family
that would affect your credit, your purchasing ability and your good name.

”So when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat [of Judah], they said,
“It is the king of Israel!” So they turned to fight against him, but Jehoshaphat
called out [for God’s help], and the Lord helped him; and
GOD DIVERTED THEM away from him.” (2Chron.18:31, Amp)

Faithful God and His Order

SpringsummerautumnwinterFaithful God who set the seasons in undeniable order remains on His throne so that His order and purposes will be accomplished in the earth. As certainly as there is a summer that turns into fall and a fall that turns into winter there is One who sits above the machinations of unregenerate, self-serving men. People of faith will, therefore, align themselves with His order and contradict the disorder of faithlessness—step by step and day by day.
“While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” (Gen.8:22, Amp)
