Honoring Commitments to Us

May the Lord bring to their remembrance the good promises others have made to us, no matter how long ago.  May they consider the commitments they made and set about honoring those promises. May they not try to follow through with only a “reasonable facsimile thereof” but provide the full measure of the original intention and may God bless it and multiply it beyond initial expectations.  Gen. 41:9–”Then the chief butler spoke to Pharaoh, saying: “I remember. . .”   v.12–”Now there was a young Hebrew man with us there. . .”   v.14–”Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph. . .”


Looking Beyond Defeat

As the people of God assemble today, may they look beyond the threats of failure and defeat that loom defiantly over them. May they look beyond infirmity, disease, financial lack and setbacks and focus on the promises of God that never fail, and let loose with heart-felt praise!  “Meanwhile, I’m sure you’re on my side— no victory shouts yet from the enemy camp! You know me inside and out, you hold me together, you never fail to stand me tall in your presence so I can look you in the eye.” (Ps.41:11-12, Msg)


Recall God’s Promises

As the people of God assemble today, may they recall and rehearse for one another the promises of faithful God and may they hope in them anew and afresh.   “Remember [fervently] the word and promise to Your servant, in which You have caused me to hope. This is my comfort and consolation in my affliction: that Your word has revived me and given me life.” (Ps.119:49-50, Amp)

April is For Embracing the Promises of God

Meme by Melissa Gabler. A photo she took on her trip to Ireland. (Powerscourt Estate)

The month of APRIL IS FOR EMBRACING THE PROMISES OF GOD and clinging to them, in spite of present appearances, while knowing that the Lord God is faithful to His promises. ”Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, who has fulfilled with His hands what He spoke with His mouth… (2Chron.6:4, NKJV)   “being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. (Rom.4:21, NKJV)

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)
