The Lord is Near to Those Who Call Him
Greetings on this awesomely blessed Monday morning, Loved Ones!
Psalm 37:4-5 AMP – Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it.
Philippians 4:4-5 AMP – Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him]; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit [your graciousness, unselfishness, mercy, tolerance, and patience] be known to all people. The Lord is near.
Celebrate the joy of life today and every day by being enthusiastically passionate about your purpose to fulfill GOD’s plan for you–to honor and glorify Him, to excel in your spiritual and creative gifts, to serve and produce an abundance of good fruit.
Colossians 4:2 AMP – Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving.
We never run out of opportunities and situations that call for us to stand unified in prayer. Right now, our Ukrainian brothers and sisters who are praying for deliverance from the senseless, horrific attack on their country need us to be in prayer with them to overcome their adversary and live in peace. As well, other brothers and sisters around the world need our prayers as they are also under the attack of the enemy who comes to steal, kill and destroy. They all need our fervent prayers to be rescued and delivered from the power of satan.
Psalm 37:12-15 AMP -The wicked plots against the righteous And gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him [the wicked one—the one who oppresses the righteous], For He sees that his day [of defeat] is coming. The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow To cast down the afflicted and the needy, To slaughter those who are upright in conduct [those with personal integrity and godly character]. The sword [of the ungodly] will enter their own heart, And their bow will be broken.
As GOD pours into us His amazing abundant love, we have so much to pour out freely to others in prayer and in serving. Always remember who you are, having the power of prayer in faith within you and the willingness to be of service…because of Whose you are!
Prayer: Now may the God of peace [the source of serenity and spiritual well-being] who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood that sealed and ratified the eternal covenant, equip you with every good thing to carry out His will and strengthen you [making you complete and perfect as you ought to be], accomplishing in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews13:20-21)
