Timely Tidbits of Truth 11

Timely Tidbits of Truth 11
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
 
God’s hand…that holds the stars, that wipes the tear, that lifts the weary, that blesses the humble, that works all wonders…is upon you!
 
You place your hand of blessing on my head (Psalm 139:5 NLT).

Reflections From the Heart of God; God Goes Before You

Reflections From the Heart of God; God Goes Before You
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

He has a life for you to live, a plan for you to follow, and a purpose for you to fulfill.
He has allowed you to be here, at this time in history, to be His watchman to this generation.
 
"...I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me"
(Isaiah 46:9 NIV).

God goes before you today and His presence is with you.

My Morning Prayer: Jesus Rose for You

My Morning Prayer: Jesus Rose for You
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley
 
Jesus Rose for You
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

Jesus died and rose for us! Does this not say it all?
If we only knew this one truth, it would be sufficient.
If we only had this loaf of spiritual bread to eat, it would satisfy our hunger.
If we only had this living water to drink, it would quench our thirst.
 
Jesus died and rose for you!
This is the taproot from which the tree of life grows.
This is the headwater from which the healing river flows.
This is the pen from which the great doctrines of faith are written—justification, sanctification, redemption, salvation—Jesus died and rose for you.

Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us (Romans 8:34 NKJV).



My Morning Prayer
-Marina Bromley

Father, as we continue to contemplate and celebrate all that Jesus did for us, we praise You that You made a way through Him for us to be redeemed. Thank You for the forgiveness of our sins. Thank You that because of the great power that lives in Him, we can look forward to all the promises made in the Bible. Because of the power in Jesus's name, we are justified, sanctified, redeemed, and saved...and someday we too will be resurrected, joining You God, and Your Son, Jesus, in the heavenlies. What a great and marvelous day that will be! May we live each day being Your hands and feet, sharing the Gospel promises to those who don't yet know You, until we are united. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Timely Tidbits of Truth 10

Timely Tidbits of Truth 10
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
 
In given moments I wonder, “Where would we be without the Lord?”
It is in those moments I hear Him say, “You will never be without Me.”
 
He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” (Hebrews 13:5 AMP).

Jesus Died for You

Jesus Died for You
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
 
 
The message of the cross is a message of God’s amazing love and grace. The Bible tells us that Jesus died for you.
 
Jesus dying for you is a glorious truth. He died for your sins. He took your sins upon Himself. He was your sacrificial lamb. His blood made atonement for you.
 
He was your substitute, dying in your place—taking your judgment, your death, your hell. He died as your Redeemer, shedding His blood to buy you back to God as His possession, and to bring you the heart-freeing joy of knowing Him.

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8 NKJV).

My Morning Prayer: The Glory of the Cross

My Morning Prayer: The Glory of the Cross
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley

The Glory of the Cross
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
 
The cross tells us:
We are sinners and need a Savior.
We are lost and need to be found.
We are guilty and need mercy.
 
The cross points us to Jesus:
His shed blood cleanses us.
His grace justifies us.
His finished work makes us whole.
 
The cross assures us:
Jesus is the only way.
God’s love held nothing back.
We have been bought with a price.

Far be it from me to glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ (Galatians 6:14 ASV).


My Morning Prayer
-Marina Bromley

Father, now that our Easter finery is put away, the company has gone home, the church halls are empty—let us not forget that the purpose of the cross was not meant for one day or even for one week, but for our lifetime and to have eternity with You. Thank You God for Your love, so perfect. Thank You Jesus, for laying Your life down as the price for our sins. Thank You Holy Spirit for walking with us each moment of every day, every season, that we can be comforted by You and never be left alone.

Your presence in my life is to be remembered every day, and my freedom from sin is meant to be celebrated! God, we give You the glory for making a way that will never end. Thank You for creating me to be Yours. Amen.
