Pray for Who?

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 
so that you may prove yourselves to be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 
Matthew 5:43‭-‬45 NASB

🌹Now more than ever, let us pray for our enemies. Pray for those who oppose God’s will, His way.

Impossible is Possible

And the Lord looked at him and said, “Go in this strength of yours and save Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you?”
Judges 6:14 NASB

God does not send that He does not equip. Go in the strength of the Lord.

But he said to Him, “O Lord, how am I to save Israel? Behold, my family is the least in Manasseh, and I am the youngest in my father’s house.”
Judges 6:15 NASB

But Jesus said to him, “ ‘If You can?’ All things are possible for the one who believes.”
Mark 9:23 NASB

Looking at them, Jesus *said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
Mark 10:27 NASB

God can do extraordinary things through the “least” of people. All He wants is a willing, surrendered and obedient heart.

Yet the Lord said to him, “I will certainly be with you, and you will defeat Midian as one man.”
Judges 6:16 NASB

God is with us. We do not face anything He calls us to alone.

I am the vine, you are the branches; the one who remains in Me, and I in him bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.
John 15:5 NASB

🌹God calls us to go in Him. In His strength. In His power. To accomplish the impossible for His will and purpose. Even little ol you.

Living Word

Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.
Proverbs 30:5 NASB

For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12 NASB

God is His word. It is living and active just as God Himself. His word is pure and cleansing. God’s word brings us to the awareness of our need to be obedient to His word. His word is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us; and we saw His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

🌹Is the Word living in You? Is the Word active? Are you being perfected, transformed by the Word? Read it and watch as God changes you.

Cling

Only be very careful to follow (perform) the commandment and the Law which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, to love the Lord your God and walk in all His ways, and keep His commandments and cling to Him, and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
Joshua 22:5 NASB

Cling:
to adhere closely; stick to:
to hold tight, as by grasping or embracing; cleave
to be or remain close. (Dictionary.com)

🌹But you are to cling to the Lord your God, as you have done to this day.
Joshua 23:8 NASB

Eagerly Awaiting

And just as it is destined for people to die once, and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
Hebrews 9:27‭-‬28 NASB

In this Holy Week commemorating Jesus’s death and resurrection, where is your mind focused? We already know that Jesus rose from the dead but those watching Jesus go to the cross and be buried, were they eagerly waiting for His return to the living? What victory for those who saw Him resurrected.

🌹”to those who eagerly await Him.”
Are you eagerly awaiting the arrival of King Jesus? His return?!

Therefore #1

Therefore, we must fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it. 
Hebrews 4:1‭ NASB

Evaluation of the importance of God and His word in your life is vital.

And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain—
2 Corinthians 6:1 NASB

(Recommended that you read all of 2 Corinthians 6).

For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also did; but the word they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united with those who listened with faith.
Hebrews 4:2 NASB

The word working in you confirms your faith and unites you with the like-minded believer of God’s word. Don’t sell yourself short by missing out on the daily feeding of God’s word. It opens doors to experiences with God beyond anything you can imagine.

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of mere men, but as what it really is, the word of God, which also is at work in you who believe.
1 Thessalonians 2:13 NASB

🌹 Therefore, let us read God’s word daily so we don’t fall short of God’s rest nor take His grace in vain, being united with other believers by the same faith.

Trust and Obedience

And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to perform healing. And He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have two tunics apiece.
Luke 9:2‭-‬3 NASB

Do you trust the Lord God to provide for your every need?

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided to you.
Matthew 6:33 NASB

🌹Trust and obedience. Surrender to His will.

Joyous Satisfaction

Satisfy us in the morning with Your graciousness, That we may sing for joy and rejoice all our days.
Psalms 90:14 NASB

Do you have an established time each day when you set aside time to spend with your Creator, Father, Savior? Oh to spend time in the early morning, experiencing His graciousness through prayer and His word. Sets the tone and focus for the entire day.

With our focus on God we enjoy His leading. . .

Send out Your light and Your truth, they shall lead me; They shall bring me to Your holy hill And to Your dwelling places.
Psalms 43:3 NASB

But know that the Lord has set apart the godly person for Himself; The Lord hears when I call to Him.
Psalms 4:3 NASB

My soul longed and even yearned for the courtyards of the Lord ; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Psalms 84:2 NASB

There is a river whose streams make the city of God happy, The holy dwelling places of the Most High.  God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
Psalms 46:4‭-‬5 NASB

🌹Sing for joy in the Lord, you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright.
Psalms 33:1 NASB
