For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19 NASB
🌹I am praying God will use this prayer for you today. Even though I may not know you, God does, and I hope this prayer of blessing is bestowed on you.

The day after reflecting on “Thanksgiving”, celebrating with family and/or friends, what have you come to know about your blessings? God blesses us, and let all the earth fear Him. Psalms 67:7 NASB

Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted?” Praise the Lord in song? He has done excellent things; Let this be known throughout the earth. Isaiah 12:4-5 NASB
🌷Dear God, as we enter into the season of celebrating the most significant and glorious gift ever given to mankind, may our thankful hearts remember to exalt You, the giver of abundant blessings, and make known the wonderful, life giving deeds of a child born in Bethlehem. With a thankful heart I pray that this Christmas season will bring multiple opportunities to share the everlasting lovingkindness of our God and why we celebrate Jesus, in whose name I pray, amen.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name.

Lord, may we not forget the cross and the outpouring of love that came from that tragic day.

Amen. 1 Chronicles 29:13 NASB

🌹My flesh is unworthy to worship You O God of my praise!! I will put no confidence in my flesh to worship and praise You but will worship You in spirit.

But He returned to You Father and the Holy Spirit was sent! What great things You have done for me. I can truly worship You in Spirit and truth because Your Holy Spirit abides in me. I can truly say what great things You have done for me O God of my praise! Amen. Philippians 3:3/1 Samuel 12:24/John 16:7 NASB
They come to you as people come, and sit before you as My people and hear your words, but they do not do them, for they do the lustful desires expressed by their mouth, and their heart goes after their gain. Ezekiel 33:31 NASB
Church. Where does church lie on our priority list? What draws us each week to attend?
Do we come as God’s people hungry for the Word of God to feast on and digest throughout the day, the week and follow in obedience? Are our hearts strengthened to be steadfast toward our God? Are we walking faithful in His word? When we gather in the Sanctuary before our Lord, do we draw near with our words and honor God with our lip service, but remove our hearts far from God? Does our reverence toward God consist of tradition learned by repetition, habit, routine, becoming mechanical? Psalms 78:36-37/Isaiah 29:13 NASB
🌹We are missing out on the awesome power and movement of the Holy Spirit during Church if we are not completely there in body, heart, soul seeking to draw near to God and be revived for a week of walking obediently with our Lord.
