Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world”.


Lord, may our hearts humbly bow before you, in persistent prayer. May we be alert, to the needs of others, so we might lift them up. Reveal yourself to us, through answered prayer, even though it may not be, what we wanted the outcome to be. May we always remember, that you care about us and love hearing our petitions.

Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;

Warning: This was a warning of Judgement to those who did not seek the Lord. The nation had fallen into pagan worship and idolatry. It had lead, them into many forms of unrighteousness, and God was saying to brace yourselves! Does any of this sound familiar? Let us confess our sins and turn from them. Let us pray for our nation, who has gone astray. Let us be a light in a dark place and be used by God, as a lighthouse, to save those who will listen and receive God’s truth!

“But let justice roll down like waters And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

No matter what our circumstances, we are commanded to tell others, about our great God. He should be feared, by those who worship other God’s. Gut check: Let’s take some time and think about any false God’s we may have in our own lives, besides the Lord of the heavens and Earth. May you have a wonderful day of Worship before the one true God today.

Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.
1 Chronicles 16:24

Love God, and walk in his ways and find life, both present and eternal .  The alternative, comes in the next couple of verses.  Reject God,  and his ways and you will find death, both in this present life and for all of eternity.  Something to consider wisely.

in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.
Deuteronomy 30:16 NASB

May our light shine today, that we may warn of danger ahead, but point the way to safety, through Jesus, just as a lighthouse is used to save Jesus.  Amen.  Please share your stories of how God used you for this today!

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:14‭-‬16 NASB
