“And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or work is of men, it will come to nothing
but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it – lest you even be found to fight against God.”  Acts 5:38-39 NKJV

We have the advantage point of time to know this plan was and is of God.

Thank You, Lord, for never being overthrown.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Persecution
suffering
martyrdom
and more

they are fighting
against You, Lord
but can never
win this war.

God bless you as you do the work of God today!

Thank You, Lord, for the power of Your name.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We will call
on Your name, Jesus
for no other name
will do

can save us
no other can see
us through.

Look at Me
My children

and do not be
afraid

to expect good
from Me

for you are why
I came.

God bless you as you expect and receive from Him today!

In Our Own Tongues

You talk to me
in a way
that I can
understand

for though You always
remain the same
You speak uniquely
to each lamb.

Thank You, Lord, for being in control so we can be Your witnesses. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Do not struggle
with times and seasons

I will tell you
what you need to know

to be My witness
where I place you

to share the gospel
wherever you go.

Thank You, Lord, for never forgetting where we are and where You want us to be.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Surely You
will visit us

You’ve not forgotten
we’re here

and as You work
out the details

we need not worry
or fear.

God bless you as He visits you today!

And He Blessed Them

“And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.”  Genesis 49:28  NKJV

This is one of the last things Jacob did before he died . .he blessed others.

Thank You, Lord, for thinking of us as You hung on the cross.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Thank You, Lord
for blessing me
every time I
think of You

for flooding me
with Your presence
the way only You
can do.

God blesses you today!

God Almighty Appeared

220px-Rumunia_5806

“Then Jacob said to Joseph, ‘God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me, and said to me, “Behold I will make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will make you a multitude of people, and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession.” ‘ ”  Genesis 48:3-4

God still meets with us.

Thank You, Lord, for speaking into our lives.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

As You met
with Jacob

promising to multiply
and give the land

so You meet
with us each day

speaking Your word
Your covenant, Your plan.

God bless you as He meets with you today!

Tuesday’s Prayers for Prisoners (2/17/2015)

Debbie:

I just can’t get this out of my mind and heart, so wanted to share it with you today. Please give a listen!

Each Tuesday I pray and fast for nations where Christians suffer the worst persecution around the world. This week I am praying and fasting for:

India. 1.3 billion people with 59 million Christians.

The oppressive caste system is blocking social mobility. Economic wealth is unevenly distributed. A new Hindu government (in power since May 2014 and led by Hindu hardliner Narendra Modi) is radicalizing society. All traditions of Christianity are affected by persecution in India, but Christian converts from a Hindu background and non-traditional Protestant groups are suffering most. At the top level the influence of fundamentalist Hindus has increased. Hindu radicals have started monitoring Christian activity in much detail. Many of them have planted spies in churches. Reports on pastors and church members beaten because of allegations of conversion are frequent; sometimes Christians are even killed. (World Watch List)

“And Joseph situated his father and his brothers, and gave them a possession, in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.” Genesis 47:11 NKJV

You have situated
me and my family

providing for us
day and night

giving us twenty-four
hour access

to the best possible
love and light.
