Your Love Guard Me Through The Night….



TONIGHT I PRAY that you keep yourself open to the working of the Holy Spirit in your life.  Sometimes God will allow you to go through situations to draw out impurities in your character. Embrace what He's doing so you can get to the next level in your spiritual journey. Sometimes when you are praying over and over and you don’t believe that your prayer has been answered, I pray that you just stop and be still.  Listen to the Holy Spirit within you.  Sometimes God removes a person in your life for your protection. Think about that before you go running after them. He gives us what we need so that we can grow into the men and women that He has planned for us to be.  I pray that you realize that His deepest desire for you is that you learn to depend on Him totally in every situation.  It is when you do that He will work with you and through you.  Use your freedom wisely, by relying on Him constantly.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen….  I love you all!!!  God bless you!!!

A Supreme Act of Faith
Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.
—Genesis 6:22


Noah's decision to build an ark required a supreme act of faith. There was no body of water nearby. In fact, it had never rained on Earth before. At that time, God had placed a water canopy over the planet that created a greenhouse effect of sorts. So in one of the greatest acts of faith in human history, Noah cut down his first gopher tree to start building the ark.

It was such a bold act of faith that Noah was memorialized in Hebrews 11, known as the Hall of Faith: "By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith" (verse 7).

This verse gives us a number of important insights into what made Noah tick. First of all, we read that he was "divinely warned." God spoke to Noah. Romans 10:17 says that "faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Your faith will grow when you read what the Bible says and then take the next step and put it into action.

We also read that Noah "moved with godly fear." Noah had a reverence for, or a fear of, the Lord. And a good definition I have heard for the fear of the Lord is "a wholesome dread of displeasing Him."

Noah's walk with God caused him to work for God. And one must always precede the other. If you walk with God, you will want to work for God. Works don't save you; faith does. But if your faith is real, then it will produce works. That is how Noah's faith worked when God told him to build the ark.  I hope that you enjoyed this devotional as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!  God bless you!!!

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night….



TONIGHT I PRAY that you thank the Lord frequently as you journey through out your day.  When you do this it enables you to pray without ceasing and it allows you to become more aware of His Pleasure shining upon you and your prayers become a sweet aroma to the Lord.  I pray that you thank Him for it will bring you His Presence and Peace. When your mind is occupied with thanking the Lord, you will have no time for worrying or complaining. If you practice thanking Him consistently negative thought patterns will gradually grow weaker and weaker.  I pray that you draw nearer to Jesus with a grateful heart, and let His Presence fill you with His Joy and His Peace. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  I love you all!!!  God bless you!!! ♥♥♥

Excited Expectancy
Be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.  — James 5:7

The early rains in Israel usually would come in late October or early November. The farmer would anxiously await these because they would soften the hard-baked soil for plowing. The latter rains would come in late April or May. These were essential to the maturing of the crops. If the farmer were to rush out and harvest his crops before their time, he would destroy them. So he had to wait.

As today's opening verse demonstrates, James knew that patience also was an important factor in awaiting the Lord's return. No crop appears overnight. Like farmers, we need to be patient and recognize that it takes time for growth to happen in our lives. However, the word patience does not speak of a passive resignation but of an expectant waiting for the Lord. This is not a casual, nonchalant approach. Rather, it is an excited expectancy, a readiness.

Some believers don't live this way. They just passively bide their time. But the Bible tells us we should be actively preparing as we await the return of Christ: "And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand" (Romans 13:11-12).

Let's be sure we are living in a holy manner—and with expectant optimism and joy—as we patiently wait for Christ's return.  I hope that you enjoyed this devotional as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!  God bless you!!!

Word of the Day... July 4, 2015...


When you think about July 4th what comes to mind? 

Perhaps you think about a day off from work with picnics, fireworks, and those red, white, and blue flags displayed in front yards along your neighborhood streets.

This is all good, but the one word that comes to my mind is freedom.

It is a fact that we live in the United States of America where we can voice our opinions freely, and can vote for the people of our choice. These are very good reasons why we should never take our freedom for granted.

Each year I notice that some people really go all out decorating for every holiday, but on the 4th of July I just display my flag in the yard for the entire month. The flag means a lot to me because of those in my family who have been in wars. I have also had friends who have served our country, and I have known some who did not come home in the past and present war.

My father served in World War II, my mother was a Red Cross volunteer during that war, my niece and her husband served in Desert Storm, and I also have had loved ones in the Vietnam War and a friend now in Afghanistan. 

Because of their contributions in keeping us all free, I proudly display the flag.

Have you thought about the American flag and all that it stands for? It represents an emblem of the greatest nation on the earth. It has been carried through centuries in battle. It is placed on the graves of our honored dead who fought for the right for us to remain a free nation, and it flies high during peace times, as well as war.  “Old Glory” is its name.

There is another real freedom we can have. We can display it every day of the year, and that is our freedom “In Christ” to live a life to glorify Him, so that His banner of love, truth, and peace can be seen by all.

It is a flag flown high in the castle of my heart (taken from a song). We can be free in our spirit to serve the Creator of the whole universe and that my friends, is True Freedom.

Romans 8:2 says,

"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death."  (ASV)

Just like the flag that represents freedom, Jesus is a banner over us, protecting and shielding us. He is the “Glory and the Lifter of our heads” at all times. Let freedom ring out in your heart today.

Psalm 3:3 reads,

"But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head." (KJV)

I hope that you enjoyed this devotional as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!  God bless you!!!

Your Love Guard me Through The Night.....


TONIGHT I PRAY that you grow strong in your weakness!!!  Stand on your faith depending on Him to help you to make it through each day.  I pray that you get an insatiable hunger for HIS Word so that He can develop your ability to trust in HIM fully, rather than leaning on your own understanding, so that you can stand firm in your faith in Jesus Christ, relying on HIM for everything in your life. I pray that you will never doubt that He will give you exactly what you need to complete whatever task He has for you. I pray that you will trust Him to give you strength when you need it.  I pray that each of you realize that this is how He helps you to grow strong in your weakness. WALK IN HIS AUTHORITY!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  I love you all!!!  God bless you!!! ♥♥♥

Word of the Day... July 3, 2015....


A MORAL PRONOUNCEMENT

What is God saying to His human creation in our day and time? In brief, He is saying, "Jesus Christ is My beloved Son. Hear Him! "Why is there rejection? Why do men and women fail to listen? Because God's message in Jesus is a moral pronouncement. Men and women do not wish to be under the authority of the moral Word of God!  For centuries, God spoke in many ways. He inspired holy men to write portions of the message in a book. People do not like it so they try their best to avoid it because God has made it the final test of all morality, the final test of all Christian ethics. God, being one in His nature, is always able to say the same thing to everyone who hears Him. Christian believers must know that any understanding of the Word of God must come from the same Spirit who provided the inspiration!

I hope that you enjoyed this devotional as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!  God bless you!!!
