Good morning Lord! I love You! Thank You for loving me! Guide me throughout this day leading me always in Your will. Thank You! 


John 15:1-10 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the Gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. You Father are the Gardener. It is for You to prune me to bear much fruit. I trust You to prune me and to keep me protected from all the evil works of the enemy. I am cleansed by the Word. But I need grace to bear the pruning. I know You will never take me past what I can bear.




 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in Me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Lord, You indeed are the vine that nourishes, allowing us to grow when we are attached to You. . .  spending time with You, reading and studying Your Word, talking with You daily, being open to Your guidance. In these ways we remain ‘attached’ to You. You feed us and help us to grow in our knowledge and relationship with You.



8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. Jesus we choose to be Your disciples and follow You to the best and fullest of our ability.

9 “As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in His love.” Yes Jesus we will accept and follow Your will and remain in Your love. We love You Jesus!


Jesus, You are the Alpha and Omega and before You, I bow down. You are King of Kings and I love You and serving You. Your will is my will. Holy Spirit guide my thoughts and actions.


                                                                  


Lord this year is totally unique for us, and so figuring out how to proceed in our walk throughout each day is challenging. My perceptions are to trust YOU AND HAVE NO FEAR. I believe Your guidance is instructing me to build on love. Practically speaking that would be to approach all as an instrument of Your love allowing it to flow through me, yes open the ports and let it flow ~ re-establish a caring relationship with those with whom it has been broken. Look for ways of serving others. FIGHT AGAINST TEMPTATIONS TO BE OFFENDED. The enemy has been using ‘offense’ has a way of splitting up people; satan’s program of hate has been very successful.


Lord, Your love is so powerful! There’re ways of defending ourselves and our nation from hate. Show us weapons we can develop to successfully combat it. As one single person there are some things we can do. As Covid 19 has been used to separate us from each other, the gap between us has widened. Love can close that gap by reaching out and speaking with love. Look for ways of helping others; wherever you can speak love, do it especially on social media. Become an agent of caring and affection. Fear nothing, for God has us. We can affect our world for good, but we must DO and not sit passively and complain, or be afraid. Love is the weapon to fight evil and hate. Promote love, stand, and act!  See this verse:

 

2 Thessalonians 3:3 NIV

But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
