1 Thessalonians 4:4  That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;   Psalm 37:1-9 Practical Every Day Living: Fret Not  Trust Delight Commit Rest Cease from anger Wait  

Friday’s Freshness

Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. Psalms 94:9 –10 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see? He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know ? God sees, hears, knows all things. I cannot live even one moment as though this is not true for I will be held accountable. How blessed it is to be a child of God. He cares this much for me!

Thursday’s Thoughts Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Psalms 94:18  When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.  His mercy holds me up when my feet slip along the path.  Praise the Lord! Psalms 94:20-21  Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.   May the Lord help me to keep iniquity form ruling on the throne of my heart for it is “against me” and causes me to sin “against the LORD”! Psalms 94:22  But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. Worth quoting: “ What you admire will lead to what you become” – N. Deatrick *Do I admire the Lord Jesus Christ?  Am I becoming more like Him? More Quotes

Wednesday’s Wisdom - Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

1 Kings 2:3  And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: As David charged his son Solomon, we also ought to charge our children to walk in the ways of the Lord.  This alone will cause them to prosper in all that they do.  Pray for them daily to follow the LORD whole heartedly. 1 Kings 3:7-9  And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in. And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude. Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? Ask God for wisdo

Tuesday’s Treasure Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Object Lesson:  Rotten Potatoes Recently I had to clean out a bin of potatoes because some had started to rot in the middle.  I knew I kept smelling something, but could not figure out where the smell was coming from.  Oh, the mess and stink while cleaning it out!  I dumped, washed, dried, sorted.  So glad i found them before they got worse. Have I looked for rotten potatoes in my life?  Is there something stinking but I am not sure what it is?  Am I willing to do a good soul searching and heart cleaning in order to separate the good from the bad?  I need to get the rotten potatoes out of my life before the spoil the good ones!  Oh well, it is only one or two rotten potatoes.  what can it hurt?   Amazing how much one or two rotten potatoes stink!  At first you don’t notice it and then all of a sudden, they smell so bad and all the good potatoes around the rotten potatoes start to spoil.  It all happens so quickly!  Before long there are maggots crawling everywhere!  Then as my life

Monday’s Manna

2 Samuel 24:10-14  And David's heart smote him after that he had numbered the people. And David said unto the LORD, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O LORD, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly. For when David was up in the morning, the word of the LORD came unto the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying, Go and say unto David, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things; choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee. So Gad came to David, and told him, and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue thee? or that there be three days' pestilence in thy land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me. And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for his mercies are great: and let me not fall into the hand of man. Even when David re

Sunday’s Sustenance

Psalms 92:12-15  The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;  To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
