Standing on the Promises

As the people of God assemble today, may they, as one, reach forward into the year with expectancy, with commitment and with their faith firmly planted in Christ Jesus and His unfailing Word. May they stand on His promises and proclaim them to one another and for one another.  “Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God.” (Rom.4:20,WEB)



June is for Taking Ground

THE MONTH OF JUNE IS FOR TAKING GROUND: (1) Taking ground where it was lost or never gained. We will be taking ground from (2) failed relationships, from (3) failed attempts to reach goals, and from (4) ground we once held but the enemy stole.  Perhaps, as sons/daughters of God, we could (in principle) claim a promise made to Israel and walk according to the Word of God. ”And I will not again remove the foot of Israel from the ground that I have designated to your fathers, if only they will keep on doing everything that I have commanded them, the whole law, statutes, and judgments from the hand of Moses.” (2Chron.33:8, MEV)


Performing What He Promised

As the people of God assemble today, may they dwell on the God Who plans and Whose plans never fail. May they worship and look to the One who is greater than any politician and Who keeps His promises. Not only does He make promises but He is able to keep them.
”and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.” (Rom.4:21, NKJV)


Things not Seen

LookingAheadLadder1Cor.2:9—“But as it is written, ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’” (NKJV)  This is not God hitting us over the head saying, “You haven’t seen or heard things, so here is a whack to show my displeasure.” Rather, this is God saying, “There are things that I want you to see and things I want you to hear.” This is a scripture that is meant to instill in us a desire for the things we haven’t seen and haven’t heard concerning the enabling graces of our beneficent Father. May you discover daily God’s truths that you have not discovered in the past.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day.)


Dates and Appointments

May the Lord help you to keep up with due dates and appointments. May
you not be late for appointments nor late with payments. May you be
able to pay off items early and may you have more effective results
from your appointments than you might typically expect.”

“Keep your word even when it costs you, make an honest living, never
take a bribe. “You’ll never get blacklisted if you live like this.” (Ps.15:5, Msg)


Good to the Household of Faith

As the people of God assemble today, may they remember promises made to the Lord God and to their church leaders and to one another. May the Lord work in each of their hearts and lives to help bring about the ability to fulfill those promises for the benefit of the body of Christ to advance to the next level of responsibility and stewardship.

”So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good [morally] to all people [not only being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage]. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God’s family with you, the believers].” (Gal.6:10, Amp)

Promises to the Lord

PromiseRainbowHaving just come through the season known as the
giving season we now find ourselves in the season
known as the season of resolutions. May we make
promises to One who is higher than ourselves for
purposes that are higher than our own intents
and purposes.

“Make promises to the Lord your God and keep them!
Let all around him bring gifts to the awesome one.”
(Ps.76:11, CEV)
