Philippians 3:4-6

although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more: circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless. Philippians 3:4‭-‬6 NASB 

Paul, a zealous Jew for the law. He had all the qualifications for a perfect Jew. He lived up to the qualifications of the flesh, the confidence of man. 

Jesus, perfect example of righteousness, the blameless perfect God who came to earth, not only to offer eternal salvation but to also be the perfect example of righteous living. To You be praise, honor and glory. God, in my walk with You, I pray that I put no confidence in the flesh, in myself. My confidence is in You alone. 

Lord, as I look to other brothers and sisters who abide in You, I pray I recognize no one by what they are in the flesh. Even though You were known, Jesus, according to the flesh, yet now You are known in this way no longer. 

For we who are in Christ, are a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Praise and thankfulness to You, God, for all these things are from You, who reconciled us to Yourself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. God, I pray we, the church, Your church, surrender all confidence we have in the flesh and walk in the power of Christ, our perfect example, as we continue the work of reconciliation through the power of Christ, in whose name I pray, amen.

2 Corinthians 5:16‭-‬18 NASB

🌹Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 5:20 NASB

Refuge, Shield and Shelter

Do homage (or lay hold of instruction) to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, For His wrath may soon (quickly, suddenly, easily) be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!
Psalms 2:12 NASB

🌹Lord, let all who take refuge in You be glad. Let them sing for joy and may You shelter them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You. For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord. You surround him with favor as with a shield. As I pray, my heart cries out on behalf of Your people of the Ukraine, Lord. Shield and shelter them that they may sing praises to Your name. Praying also for those we are not aware of who are crying out to You needing Your shield and protection. May they all know that You are the Lord their God. To Your glory in Jesus name. Amen

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.

The Rock

The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 

Planted in the house of the Lord, They will flourish in the courts of our God.

They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green, 

To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Psalms 92:12‭-‬15 NASB

The righteous man, planted in the house of the Lord, will bear fruit, even in old age, and proclaim that the Lord is upright and righteous.

Dark to Light

for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Ephesians 5:8‭-‬10 NASB

Praise God for His glorious Light!! Because of Jesus we do not have to walk in darkness. If we are walking in darkness it is by choice. When you believed on the Son of God you entered into His eternal light.

Has God changed your life? Walking as children of the Light, Jesus Christ, we produce fruit which is goodness, righteousness and truth. No excuses. Are you walking in the Light?

Find what is pleasing to God through His word, the Bible. The result? Walking in the Light and producing fruit.

🌹but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.    1 John 1:7 NASB
