God’s Commands – (Boundaries)

Welcome My Friend!

Praises to God for your visit today.  I always pray that you will find these words encouraging and inspiring as you continue on the path seeking JESUS.

Jesus loves us and where would we be without Him?  I for one never want to be without Him.  Glory to God for giving us His Son Jesus!  And His Holy Spirit who dwells in our hearts – guiding, teaching, helping and comforting us all.

Our Scripture focus today is Psalm 74: 12, 17

“You have been our king from the beginning, O God; you have saved us many times.”

“You set all the limits on the earth.”

Boundaries keep the resources and relationships of our lives from becoming damaging.  That’s why God gives us His commands; He knows that too much of a good thing can be harmful, and he wants us to flourish rather than self-destruct.

So, don’t be afraid of His laws–they’ll always keep us safe.

Let us bow our heads together and pray:

Lord, thank you that your boundaries are not meant to limit us but protect us.  Help us please to always abide by your life-giving commands.

Amen.

THINK ABOUT HIM!!!

Welcome Welcome Welcome!

Praise God for your visit today.  I am prayer you will find encouragement and inspiration in these words as you continue on the path seeking JESUS CHRIST our Lord and Savior.

Scripture focus is from the book of Psalm:77:11-12

“I will remember your great deeds, Lord; I will recall the wonders you did in the past.  I will think about all that you have done; I will meditate on all your mighty acts.”

Oh what glorious words those are – think about HIM and all HE has done for us!

His love, his grace and mercy, his kindness, his compassion, his everything.  He is mighty and marvelous.  Let us praise HIM always and forever.

As you start this day – think of this:  you wouldn’t willingly drink water that had toxins in it; you’d find clean water to relieve your thirst.  Is the same true of your mind?

Perhaps you supply your brain with negative, chewed-over thoughts of hurt.  Or maybe boredom-a sign your intellect is starved– causes you to dine on whatever junk comes along.  Unfortunately, these diets aren’t beneficial at all.

Friend, be careful what you feed your mind–consume only what is good, healthy, and holy.  Nourish your understanding with God’s Word.  It’s the only cuisine that’ll truly satisfy your mental hunger.

Let us bow our heads together and pray:

God, please cleanse me of the rubbish in my thoughts.  Help me to feed on your Word so I’ll be healthy in my body, mind, and soul.

Thank you Lord.

Amen.
