” . . .the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.” Acts 20:23 NKJV
“But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”  Acts 20:24 NKJV

The joy of the Lord is our strength.

Thank You, Lord, for giving us the strength to finish the race with joy.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Trials, troubles
and tribulations
lie ahead
for each of us

but can never
remove the joy
of testifying
unto Jesus.

God bless you with joy as you testify to the gospel of His grace.

There Is A Holy Spirit

“And it happened,while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples
he said to them, ‘Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?’ And they said to him, ‘We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.’ ”  Acts 19:1-2 NKJV

There are other ‘spirits’ , but only one Holy Spirit.

Thank You, Lord , for Your Holy Spirit. And here is a simple poem . . .

There is
a Holy Spirit

who always
testifies

to the
glory of God

and His Son
Jesus Christ.

God bless you with His Holy Spirit!

“And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.”  Acts 18:4 NKJV

We have to be reasonable in order to reason.

Thank You, Lord, for giving us every reason to believe You and persuade others to as well.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lord, help us
reason
and patiently
persuade

as we
testify
that You are
the Way.

God bless you as you reason with others today!

Bitten

“But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand.” Acts 28:3
“So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, ‘No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live’.” Acts 28:4
“But he shook off the creature into the fire and suffered no harm.” Acts 28:5

We all get bitten in life. Others watch to see what will happen next.

No matter how much venom we get struck with, Lord, we desire to shake off anything the enemy tries to hang on us that would harm our relationship with You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Bind Us

The pain is so intense
beyond what we’ve felt before

we begin to go numb
not able to pray any more

we want to escape this
but just can’t find the door

Oh Jesus, come bind our hearts with Yours
show us how to walk this patch of floor.

Oh That All

“Then Moses said to him, ‘Are you zealous for my sake? Oh that all the Lord’s people were prophets and that the Lord would put His Spirit upon them.’ ” Numbers 11:29

Two men stayed behind while the rest of the elders went with Moses to receive a portion of God’s Spirit. When the slackers received God’s Spirit too, some in the camp weren’t happy about it.

Lord, may I rejoice in whoever receives You, wherever they are. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Good Now and Good Later

Some start to
believe and follow
from a young point
in their lives.
Others fall hard
on the road
blinded like Paul
with Christ.
