This little light of mine...

January 11, 2012

Luke 11:33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

God gave us a light to shine to point others to His saving love.  We need to let that light shine, and not hide it.  There is no sense in lighting a and le, if you are not going to let it be seen.  Shine on!

My shield

January 7, 2012
Psalm 3:3 But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
A shield is used to protect someone in the heat of battle.  In the battle we are in every day against the wiles of the devil, how awesine is it to have the God of all the universe as our shield, our protector!

Genesis 20:6-7 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her. Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.

Obedience to God is so important.  Abimelech obeyed God when Abraham and Sarah deceived him, and God rewarded him for that obedience by not destroying him.  God has a reason for telling us to do things, and we should not question that, but instead obey Him right away.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

How simple can it be?  Give, and it will be given to you!  What is your motivation for giving?  How neat is it to give to something, and in the end, it KS you that is getting the blessing instead?  Be a giver!


January 9, 2012

Today I read Genesis 24 and Luke 9.  It was neat to see how there was one thing in common with both passages-faith.  Rebecca had faith to leave her family and go marry someone she didn't even know.  His scary must that have been!  In the Luke passage, all they had was 12 loaves and 2 fishes, but the people had faith that God would provide them something to eat, even if the disciples didn't. 

If there is anything that I need to learn, it is ti have faith.  I am such a doubting person!  How much easier would my life be if I only just believed that God will work things out in His time. 

Just pray

January 10, 2012

Psalm 6:9 The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.
God is always there for you, to hear your prayers.  But sometimes, when things aren't going our way, we just sit there and complain about it, instead of taking it to God.  He is there,  waiting to listen to your prayers, no matter how small you think it is.  He cares about every aspect of your life, so talk with Him about it!

Luke 5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

I love this verse, because the men who brought the crippled man to Jesus had so much faith.  What an awesome promise, that God will reward our faith!  It really makes me want to try harder in my everyday life to have that faith that God wants from me.  Be faithful, and God will bless!

Luke 4:10 10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

I love how in this verse, Satan is quoting Scripture to Jesus...even Satan knows Jesus is God!  But the thing I love about this verse is the promise that we will have angels watching over us, to keep us...kept us safe, or even kept us out of trouble (that's for me).  What a great comfort!

All will see God

January 3, 2012

Luke 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

I liked this verse because it shows that no matter what, God will manifest Himself to all.  It may be through creation, or it may be through a person, or it may be in some other way that we have no idea...but I want my goal to be for Him to use about you?

Call upon the name of the Lord...

January 2, 2011
Genesis 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.

I think this stood out to me, because we as Christians need to be an example of actually calling out to the Lord, so that all men will see that, and also call out to the Lord.  I know in my life, I claim to be a Christian, but I don't call out to the Lord when I should.  That is one thing that I think can be a great way to point to on Him, and He will answer you and show you great and mighty things...the world will see that, and it may bring them to Christ as well.

Promise a day...

One of my goals this new year is to strive to pull one promise each day from my daily Bible readings...hopefully I can keep it up on here as well and share what I, here goes!

January 1, 2012
Luke 1:37  For with God, all things are possible.    

At the beginning of a new year, there are so many goals that I have...lose weight, be more organized, grow my business...his appropriate that this verse would stick out to me today!  I just need to trust my Lord to help me do these things!  It is so hard for me to trust, so my prayer for this new year would be to learn to trust in all aspects of my life.
