Timely Tidbits of Truth 21

Timely Tidbits of Truth 21
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

Traveling this summer? Be sure and pack Psalm 121 in the suitcase of your heart.

I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]—From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber [briefly] nor sleep [soundly]. The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your life. The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in [everything that you do] From this time forth and forever (Psalm 121 AMP).

Please Him!

 
Please Him!
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
 
Jesus said, “And the one who sent me is with me—he has not deserted me. For I always do what pleases him.” John 8:29 NLT
 
Live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more. 1 Thessalonians 4:1 NLT
 
Walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10 NKJV
 
I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. Galatians 1:10 NLT
 
Live to Please Him, not yourself.
Live to Please Him, not others. 
Live to Please Him, please!



Begin your day with one goal, one aim, one purpose, one plan, one motivation…to please God!
 
To carry that desire above all others means that your heart loves Him above all other things. 
 
Pleasing the One you love will fill your heart with its greatest joy.
 
“I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” John 15:9-11 NLT

My Morning Prayer: Not Ability but Availability

My Morning Prayer: Not Ability but Availability
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley


 Not Ability but Availability
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8 NKJV
 
When we say “not me” we place the focus upon ourselves, our limitations, and weaknesses. However, faith says, “God can.” God can use me, gift me, empower me, and be to me all I need.
 
Gideon told God, “I can’t,” but God told Gideon, “You can because I have sent you and I will be with you.” When you have Him you have all you need!


My Morning Prayer
-Marina Bromley

Lord, You are gracious and generous, and give us all good things. You walk with us through difficult seasons and provide for our every need. Thank You for Your faithfulness.

When we face new opportunities, help us to discern Your hand and Your voice leading us. Let us not fear, knowing that You can use us, gift us, empower us and be all that we need. You will not leave us, and will grow us through new seasons and situations. Father, help me to feel Your presence in the midst of my every-day and as the foundation in all my tomorrows. I love You and want to serve You with all that I have. In Jesus' name, amen.

He Is With You...

He Is With You...
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

He is with you—
As your feet bring the gospel, as your heart carries the kingdom, as your hands help the needy, as your voice speaks His words. 
 
He is with you—
As you walk through the valleys, as you climb to the heights, as you endure various hardships, as you live with eternal values in view.
 
He is with you—
As you bind up the broken, as you welcome the stranger, as you build up the weak, as you give a cup of water, as you do all in Jesus’ name.
 
I am with you always.
Matthew 28:20
