Adversity & Faith: Luke 18:29-30

Luke 18:29-30

29 And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, 30 who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life.”

The sacrifices you make to follow the Lord may seem quite great at times, even causing you to question yourself. Be assured that the Lord has promised that you will not be disappointed. His blessings will flow into your life both now and in the world to come.

Unshakeable Peace Serenity: Philippians 4:6-7.

Philippians 4:6-7

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Serenity can’t be manufactured—it’s a gift from our heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit produces a sense of calm in believers who seek the Lord’s protection against anxiety. The Greek word translated as guard in today’s passage literally means “to garrison about.” God wraps hearts and minds in peace, effectively safeguarding both against all-consuming worry or fear. Notice that He doesn’t make problems go away—we may still be under pressure or prone to weep, but we’re cushioned against anxiety and surrounded by peace instead.

Heal me with your love. I bring to you, dearest Lord, my life and it is, my hopes and dreams, my struggles and pains, my fears, anxieties my hurts, my talents, my achievements, my disappointments and my sickness. I bring to you all whom I love. I entrust all to you and with confident faith I take heart; for you make all things new. Renew me, and heal me with your everlasting love.
In this I pray, Amen

Give Your Battles To God: Ephesians 6:12.

Ephesians 6:12

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Dear Lord,

You want me to know that the battle I am called to as your child is a battle for eternal stakes; a spiritual battle against spiritual forces.
Lord, the dark authorities, the powers, the spiritual forces of evil in this world, in the internet, in the media, in the soul of this culture, in this whole world system which seeks to reduce men and women into hollow beings bent in upon themselves.
Lord, help me not get diverted to any other battles of my own making.

In this I pray, Amen

St. Michael, the Archangel, Jude 1:9,  Prince of the Seraphim.

Jude 1:9

But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.”

 

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the day of Battle;
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke Him, we humbly pray,
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the power of God, cast into Hell,
Satan and all the other evil spirits,
who prowl through the world,
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Silence of the Night, Lord: Psalm 4:8.

Psalm 4:8

In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
    for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Dear Lord,

Teach me to carry the torch of peace, That it may reside within my heart also radiate in my surroundings.

O God, from whom all holy desires,  and all good works proceed; give to Thy children that peace which the world cannot give, that both our hearts may be set to obey Thy commandments, and that we, being delivered from the fear of our enemies, may pass our time, under Thy protection, in rest and quietness. Through Christ our Lord.  In this I pray, Amen.

Thank you my dearest Denise as you instilled this scripture in my heart today.  God Bless you always.
