Ask and Receive!
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Why do we ask in prayer and then not believe? Jesus tells us to believe and we shall receive what we ask. Do we think we are unworthy? Yes we are BUT.... by His grace we are His children and He freely gives to us. If we ask with the right heart, motive. Is your heart right? Do you believe? Then Receive!!!
Offerings of the Leaders
Now it came to pass, when Moses had finished setting up the tabernacle, that he anointed it and consecrated it and all its furnishings, and the altar and all its utensils; so he anointed them and consecrated them. Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers’ houses, who were the leaders of the tribes and over those who were numbered, made an offering. And they brought their offering before the Lord, six covered carts and twelve oxen, a cart for every two of the leaders, and for each one an ox; and they presented them before the tabernacle.
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Accept these from them, that they may be used in doing the work of the tabernacle of meeting; and you shall give them to the Levites, toevery man according to his service.” So Moses took the carts and the oxen, and gave them to the Levites. Two carts and four oxen he gave to the sons of Gershon, according to their service; and four carts and eight oxen he gave to the sons of Merari, according to their service, under the authority[a] of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. But to the sons of Kohath he gave none, because theirs was the service of the holy things, which they carried on their shoulders.
Are you a leader? Do you have a heavy load? I can say yes to both of these questions, but I also know the load is for the work of the kingdom of God. I know it is for the service of Christ that they seem heavy and the Lord takes the burden upon Him and revives me of stress and struggle and turns it into JOY! Hallelujah! #joyoftheLord #struggle #offeringsofleader

“Up, up! Flee from the land of the north,” says the Lord; “for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven,” says the Lord. “Up, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.” For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. For surely I will shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me. “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” says the Lord. “Many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and they shall become My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you. And the Lord will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land, and will again choose Jerusalem. Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for He is aroused from His holy habitation!”
We are the "apple of God's eye"! Why because if we touch Israel we are touching the apple of God's eye. The powers of darkness despise the fact that Israel has a covenant with God. The Lord wants to love and protect His people. Are you His child? You can receive Him today. Choose Jesus as your Lord and Savior and you too will be the "apple of His eye".
Rejoice Today and Always!
This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Everyday is a time to rejoice in the Lord. His goodness, mercy, grace and unconditional Love. Be Happy Trust in the Lord! #BeHappy#Rejoice#Beautifulday
The Value of a Friend
Two are better than one,
Because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
We may not always see eye to eye the value of a true friend is what I have with my husband, Jess. Two is always better than one! He lifts me up and I am warm when I am with him. As we stay together by the grace of God He is our third strand and we are not quickly broken. I am looking forward to everyday I wake up with him. #loveofmylife #myfriend #truefriendJesus
(As it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
God calls those things that are not manifest as though they were manifest. Compare this with
1 Corinthians 1:28
and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,
THIS IS GOD'S Method! We also must call for eternal forces that put to naught thing that are seen. Call into manifestation the things that are not, and they will replace what "IS" manifest. Paul said we should overcome evil with good. Can you start doing this? Let's try to believe and call into manifestation what is good. #eviltogood #GodsMethod #wordofGod
Why Read the Bible Publicly?
1 Timothy 4:13-16
Until I come, pay attention to the public reading of the Scriptures. Do not neglect your gift, which you were given through a prophecy when the body of elders gave you s’mikhah. Be diligent about this work, throw yourself into it, so that your progress may be clear to everyone. Pay attention to yourself and to the teaching, continue in it, for by so doing you will deliver both yourself and those who hear you.
Here we are told to pay attention to the Public reading of the scripture. Bible Reading Ministry International's vision is to take marathons to the world. The seed planted in Wyoming grown in Arkansas is now being declared in many parts of the world. Be must be diligent in this work so that His plan may be clear to everyone. We must continue in it, Thanks for your help through ArkansasGives.org yesterday. May many more catch the vision and help in this God sized task. #publicreading #scripturereadoutloud #godsizetask #HolySpiritmoves
1 Chronicles 17:16
“Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that You have brought me this far?
We all have dreams and goals but what is more important --achieving our hopes and dreams or our love for God? Father, I commit all my hopes and dreams to You. Thank you for bringing me this far. You mean more to me than anything in the world.
Unity Through Humility
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
This passage reflects God's heart that ALL His people live together in harmony. Yes here on earth we must humbly walk with each other in love, unconditionally esteeming others better than ourselves. Having their interests more important than ours.
Wisdom and Grace of God
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Jams tell us that wisdom is grown in the soil of hardship, for there we not only learn from the wisdom of God, we rest in the grace of God.
