Search Me O Lord
“The prayer power has never been tried to its full capacity. If we want to see mighty wonders of divine power and grace wrought in the place of weakness, failure and disappointment, let us answer God’s standing challenge, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not!’” (J. Hudson Taylor)
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 1may have power, together with all the believers, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Throw the Book at Satan
Read: Matthew 4:1-11
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Notice that the tempter caught Jesus at a time when He was tired and hungry. Satan uses the same tactic with us. Waiting for those vulnerable moments, he lures us with the bait of seductive suggestions that offer quick relief and opportunities for self-advancement. When facing such challenges, it’s important to follow Jesus’ example—throw “the Book” at Satan! Jesus responded to temptation by quoting Scriptures.
If we never faced the tempter
With his sharp and fiery sting,
We would never know the victory
That our trust in God can bring. —Robert
When Satan strikes, strike back with the Word of God.
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost;
when health is lost, something is lost;
when character is lost, all is lost. –Billy Graham
Do what you can, for who you can, with what you have, where you are.
The real measure of a man’s wealth is what he has invested in eternity.
Everyone has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
It’s important for parents to live the same things they teach.
Thank God for what you have, TRUST GOD for what you need.
If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no today
to be thankful for.
Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks within.
The choice you make today will usually affect tomorrow.
Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears.
Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together.
To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it.
We take for granted the things that we should be giving thanks for.
