Week of March 4, 2019
Do not fear, oh land. Rejoice now and rejoice because the Lord has done great things.
The grain will be piled up again in the threshing fields and the wine presses will overflow with new wine and olive oil. The Lord says: “I will give you back what you lost. You will have all the food you want and praise the Lord your God, who works these miracles for you. Never again will my people be ashamed.”
God brings divine forgiveness to your life and with that forgiveness the restoration of everything lost because of sin or unbelief.
This restoration in your family, relationships, projects, and economy will not be for you alone but will build your faith in God who commands from Heaven and earth obeys. So do not be afraid of the future, and start to be happy for everything that will come.
Pray this way: Lord, I ask Your forgiveness for my faults and my unbelief. Thank You for this promise of restoration. I believe You will restore everything I have lost. In the name of Jesus, amen.
So let’s not get tired of doing well. In due time, we will reap many blessings if we do not give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, let’s do good to everyone.
If you feel that there is no recognition or reward for your good works, it’s good to know that there is a spiritual law: Everything that is sown is reaped, and although it’s late—wait, because His promise will be fulfilled.
Pray this way: Father God, I believe in this promise: If I do good to others, I will also reap blessings. Show me opportunities to do good. In the name of Jesus, amen.
My son, never forget the things I have taught you; keep my commands in your heart. If you do so, you will live many years, and your life will give you satisfaction. Never allow loyalty or kindness to abandon you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them in the depths of your heart. Then you will have both God’s favor and that of the people, and you will achieve a good reputation.
So that your days are good and give you satisfaction, keep in your heart the advice of God. That will give you wisdom; you will be kind and loyal.
Wisdom is more precious than gold, because you will have a good reputation with men and the favor of God.
Pray this way: Father God, thank You for Your advice. Teach me Your ways to live wisely. I need Your favor. I ask You in the name of Jesus, amen.
The people refused to enter the pleasant land, because they did not believe the promise that God would take care of them. Instead, they grumbled in their tents and refused to obey the Lord.
Thirty-five hundred years ago, the Israelites disobeyed God by rejecting an extraordinary opportunity for their lives and nation to be transformed. Their physical eyes could see only the difficulties of settling in a new land.
Today we must also stop grumbling about our present problems and obey God by entering by faith at a time of abundant blessing.
Pray this way: Father God, open my spiritual eyes to see and understand Your extraordinary plans for my life, and forgive me if I have rejected Your promises. In the name of Jesus, amen.
Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, “Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? And when did we see You naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick or in prison, and we went to see You?” The King replied, “I tell you the truth, as soon as you did it to one of these My younger brothers, you did it to Me.”
There are holidays, greetings, and good wishes—gifts between family and friends.
Have you ever thought about making a gift to God?
Even though He does not need anything we can give Him, maybe giving attention to someone in a way that person can never repay is a gift to God. Even if you forget it in time, God will not forget it.
Pray this way: Lord, open my eyes and make me sensitive to see the needs around me. I want to invest in the Kingdom of Heaven. In the name of Jesus, amen.
Do not be afraid, because I am with you; do not be discouraged, because I am your God. I will give you strength and I will help you; I will hold you with My victorious right hand.
No matter the size of the challenge you face, the desert you are going through, or the attack on your health or another area of your life, believe God. Do not be discouraged, because He never abandons you. This battle today is for you to come out stronger and more prepared for the greatest successes that will come upon you!
Pray like this: Lord, thank You for being by my side. I believe in Your promises and that Your hand will give me victory. Help me not to be discouraged. In the name of Jesus, amen.
Submit to God and you will have peace, then you will be well. Listen to God’s instructions and keep them in your heart. If you turn to the Almighty, you will be restored, therefore clean your life.
When you do things your way or as everyone does them, the result is uncertain.
How can you do it God’s way? Keep His advice for each day in your heart, or before making a decision consult with the person who speaks to you about God, and everything will turn out well.
Pray like this: Lord, I thank You for Your Word. Teach me Your way. Let me know Your instructions because I need everything to go well. In the name of Jesus I ask You, amen.
