All Things New!
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to each of you. As we approach 2019, we often reflect on our lives, (where we are, where we’ve been and where we wanted to be). A lot of resolutions are made at the beginning of the New Year, but sadly often broken before the first month has passed. Diets are one good example of New Year resolutions/promises that are often broken or end in failure.
If we only knew the power that is available to us through prayer, it would stagger most of our minds. The Scripture is full of accounts of God using human prayers to accomplish might miracles:
If our prayers aren’t answered like we wanted, then maybe we didn’t believe or maybe it just wasn’t in God’s plan. We must believe that he is able to do anything that we ask.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
There is power in the prayers of a righteous person. Pray, pray and then pray more!
I ASKED THE LORD TO GIVE ME A WORD THAT MIGHT HELP EACH OF US DURING THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON.
I KEPT THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT DANIEl, MY PASTOR, SAID SEVERAL YEARS AGO. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE BIRTH OF JESUS AND THE WISE MEN COMING TO SEE THE YOUNG CHILD (NOT A BABY BY THEN) AND HE MENTIONED MATTHEW 2:2
Do you know what the term” get into the short rows” means? It came from people who toiled in gardens that knew they were almost finished working when they got into the short rows in the fields. Well ladies, we are in the short rows to Christmas now! Only six more days of gifts for the Savior and we will come to His birthday!
I am so excited how God is using me to bless others and Him by these wonderful gifts that He has allowed me to give to my family, friends, neighbors and strangers
Enter your text here...Getting closer to Christmas every day! Hope that you have been giving gifts to the Savior this month. Hasn’t it been fun? I am so excited to finish this project and see how God blesses. I will never be able to give God anything compared to the free gift that He gave me. It was free to me but cost Him everything. His only Son gave His life for me. It wasn’t taken from Him but He willingly gave it so I might have eternal life. I am so grateful for that. I count it a privilege to give back just a small token to Him for His marvelous gift to me.
We finally come to the most widely form of prayer that we are familiar with. It is simply asking God to grant us our desires. We don’t usually have a problem asking God for anything and that’s what we should do….ask Him because He is ultimately the only one who can give us what we need or want.
Our prayer life is built on promises……God’s promises to us and our promises to Him. He shows us all through His Word that He is a promise keeper. Galatians 3:14
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
We are now heading toward December 25th at warp speed. I hope that you have been busy giving gifts to the Savior already. I am into planning the week from December 6th to December 12th. We don’t have much time left but there are still so many gifts that we can give Him.
When our prayer life is good with God, we have a peace that passes all understanding. That’s not to say that everything is wonderful, but there is a sweet peace that comes over us that only can come from God regardless of our circumstances.
Glad to see you back. Hoping that you have been busy making a list of gifts for the Savior this month. If you read last week’s blog, you have a good idea of what we plan to do this month for the Lord. We are going to put Him at the top of our gift list and give Him a gift each day of December.
