Prayer

WORTHY THOUGHT: Worrying doesn’t change things, prayer does.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ. -Philippians 4:6-7

Mornings are better when you talk to God first.

“God does business with those who mean business….so pray, believe, and get ready to receive. “ -Jeff Schreve

Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, -Ephesians 6:18

Ambassadors

WORTHY THOUGHT: How should we deal with people as God’s ambassadors.

Your throne is founded on two strong pillars- the one is Justice and the other is Righteousness. Mercy and Truth walk before you as your attendants.

-Psalms 89:14-15

The scripture tells us the fundamentals of how God deals with people. We as ambassadors should also deal with people effectively out of justice, righteousness, mercy and truth.

If we showed people our actions as unloving, unfair or dishonest it is not from God.

Through the faithfulness and mercy of God allows us to experience grace.

Wait

WORTHY THOUGHT: To wait on Him….

Be encouraged by the Word of truth, God knows and has his eye on you.

“From heaven the LORD looks down

and sees all mankind;

from his dwelling place he watches

all who live on earth—

He Who forms the hearts of all,

who considers everything they do.

No king is saved by the size of his army;

no warrior escapes by his great strength.

A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;

despite all its great strength it cannot save.

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him,

on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,

To deliver them from death

and keep them alive in famine.

We wait in hope for the LORD;

He is our help and our shield.

In Him our hearts rejoice,

for we trust in his holy name.

May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD,

even as we put our hope in you.”

-Psalms 33:13-22

Holy Bible (NIV)

So while we wait, be encouraged that the all-knowing, all-powerful and all-seeing God see’s all His children that wait on Him.

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him.

True

WORTHY THOUGHT: True prosperity is found by knowing the true value of God’s Word.

“They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.”-Psalms 1:3 NLT

When God’s wisdom is applied into our lives, the fruit it bears in us will be true, good and help us prosper in trials.

As a living tree soaks up water in the the roots and bears good fruit, we are also to soak up God’s Word producing good fruits in our actions, and words of truth.

Jesus also spoke in Book of John 15:5 “yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in me and I in him shall produce a large crop of fruit.”

This is a true quality of a prosperous christian character.

Guard

Worthy Thought: Guard your heart!

Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it spring the issues of life.-Proverbs 4:23

We are human and we make mistakes. We must keep our affections safe and stick to the path and keep our eyes focused on Jesus.

He will lead you and direct you on the path to righteousness which will bring you satisfaction.

Dr, Bob Pitman said it best:

Our feet, eyes, ears, and mouths behave as they do out of the dictates of our hearts.

Guard your heart by going to right places, looking at the right things, listening to the right voices, and speaking the right words.”
