The Prayerful Word - March 15

  • Matthew 25:40 The king will answer them… “Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of My family, you did it to Me.”

    Matthew 23:11-12 The greatest among you will be your servant. 12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

    Hebrews 13:1-2 Let mutual love continue. 2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.

    Colossians 3:23-24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

    Proverbs 22:4 The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor and life.

    Luke 6:27-28 But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

    May you not be so caught up in your pride or so involved in your plans that you miss the wonders of God's involvement in your life, and the redemptive miracles of His hand of salvation. Numbers 22

    May you seek God daily in prayer and through the Word, in humility of spirit and thankfulness of heart, that you may have the grace of the Lord and the strength of the Spirit to walk in the way of the Father and guard your own heart, so you won't go astray after the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Numbers 22, 1 John 2

    May you bless those whom God tells you to bless, and serve those God sends you to serve. Numbers 23

    May you receive the Word of God and follow the leading of the Spirit in full confidence and faith of the Lord's confirmation with signs following, for God is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should change His mind. He will not speak and then fail to act, or will He promise and not fulfill. Numbers 23

    May you be joyful with your neighbor when God shows them great mercy. Luke 1

    May your mouth be opened and your tongue loosed when you obey God. When you begin to speak, may His praises be heard and His name glorified. Luke 1

    My child, let Me be your strength. Let Me help you cover the daily distance you must go, bounding through a field like a deer rather than plodding through the day in your own strength. Let Me guide you through the mountains, directing you in the safest route to the top, fellowshipping with Me, and then safely to the other side, without false starts or backtracking.
    The Father was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Me, so I emptied Myself in obedience. I became as a servant who carries the purse for his master, paying the bills and passing out largesse as directed, or as a fountain connected to an entire reservoir, holding nothing back but allowing the abundance to flow for those who are thirsty and hot to quench their thirst, cool their face, cleanse their hands and feet.
    Draw from Me of the Father for all that you need, for only what is done in Christ will stand before the Father and be recognized by the Father and be accepted in the Father. That which is done for Christ or in the name of the Father, but through your own resources, will go the way of all flesh.
    Abide in Me, and through the Word and the Spirit, allow Me to abide in you, giving you sanctuary and refuge in the places and the peoples among whom I place you. Allow Me to be with you, even as I was with Jacob in his wanderings, and more visibly, with the Israelites as they traveled, for I am the ark of the covenant, and the mercy seat where the presence of God dwells.
    Enter with boldness and come before Me with all your needs, and the needs of those I have burdened your heart with. There you will find the fullness of God to supply in all abundance without reserve, that the Father may be glorified through Me.

    May the Lord's hand be with you as His Spirit is upon you. Luke 1

    May your praise be toward the Lord our God because He has come and redeemed His people and raised up a mighty and valiant Helper, the Author of salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us, to show mercy to our fathers and remember His holy covenant: to rescue us from the hand of our enemies and enable us to serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness before Him all our days. Luke 1

    May you speak in justice and judge with integrity through the wisdom of the Spirit and the righteousness of Christ in all your service and through all your ministry to those that God brings to you, expressing God's justice in your heart and meting out the Lord's mercy on the earth from your hands. Psalm 58

    May you be certain that the righteous in Christ are still rewarded, for there is a holy God Who judges the earth in justice. Psalm 58

    May you hold your tongue as does a man of understanding, lest you deride your neighbor like a man who lacks judgment. Proverbs 11:12

    May you keep confidences as does a trustworthy man, rather than betraying secrets like a gossip. Proverbs 11:13
