You Won’t Believe This Promise

“All power and all wisdom are at out command. We have only to ask.” Ministry of Healing, page 514

Join me and meditate on this thought for a moment.

This statement makes a profound impact when rightly considered.

Just imagine what this means.

Each morning we can ask for this gift and it will be given.

This is a life changer.

You must share this message! This good news!

What a gift from God.

I praise God again for this love that blesses us in so many ways.

Let’s Talk About Trust

“We must have less trust in what we ourselves can do, and more trust in what the Lord can do for and through us.” Ministry of Healing, page 513

There is a subtle difference here, determined by our attitude and preparation.

If we begin our day with Spiritual Exercise, coming close to Jesus through prayer, Bible study and meditation on God’s Word, everything changes.

When we begin our day without Spiritual Exercise, we forego devine assistance and make grave mistakes.

Even if we have good intentions, without divine help, we fail.

Jesus was never self-centered. He never tried to gain attention for Himself.

I pray that you and I will be like Jesus today. One day at a time is how we need to live as a child of God.

What Blessing Do You Want Today?

“He is well pleased when we urge past mercies and blessings as a reason why He should bestow on us greater blessings.”” Ministry of Healing, page 513

This is the maturing process, where our prayers change as we grow in Christ.

In our youth our prayers are self-centered, but as we love others more and more, our prayers become centered on the needs of others.

And as we love others with a greater love, the Holy Spirit comes upon us and reshapes us to be more like Jesus, and this is the greatest blessing.

To be like Jesus is an incredible thought.

I pray that today, you and I will experience this transformation together.

Did You Attend Church Service This Week?

“It is a serious mistake to neglect the public worship of God.” Ministry of Healing, page 511

I’ve known several young people and adults who feel no purpose in public worship.

I confess there are times when the church service fails to feed me spiritually.

Sometimes sermons are boring or fail to feed me.

But there is always something for us to do for others in public worship.

Our influence of just being there and when we reach out to others with conversation and encouragement, a divine purpose is served.

Public worship is more about serving others than being fed ourselves.

Like Jesus, we should always try to help others with our influence of being there, and by how we treat them in the process.

This is what public worship is meant to be.

I praise God for the examples Jesus gave to us.

If You’re Not Happy – This Is Probably The Reason

“However great and glorious hereafter, our reward is not all to be reserved for the time of final deliverance. Even here we are by faith to enter into the Savior’s joy.” Ministry of Healing, page 504

I talk about this over and over because people need to hear it again and again.

If you don’t feel this joy, then you don’t spend enough time with God in prayer, Bible study and meditation on God’s Word.

It’s simple. But the benefits are great.

Think about the joy you and others might be missing.

Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone felt this joy?

Can you imagine how different things would be if all church members experienced this joy?

We can do it!

You Too Can Master Circumstances

“We should seize upon circumstances as instruments by which to work. We are to master them, but should not permit them to master us.” Ministry of Healing, page 500

Circumstances are opportunities to be gracious and to serve.

If we perceive them as such, then we rise above them and use them to glorify God.

This is a beautiful thought that changes everything.

I pray you will meditate on this counsel today and let the Holy Spirit help to master circumstances of all sorts.

Join me and praise God for the Holy Spirit’s help.

Who You Are Makes a Difference :)

“Stand in your God-given personality. Be no other person’s shadow.” Ministry of Healing, page 499

Our personalities are shaped by DNA and events. They are pliable and subject to change, but are unique.

Each one is like no other.

We need to understand that spending time in Spiritual Exercise changes our personality to be closer to God’s plan for us.

We need not copy other people, but let the Holy Spirit shape us in a positive manner.

Our character should be like that of Jesus, but our personality should develop along side it.

This is a wonderful plan of God for each of us to be different.

I praise God for this great act of love.

How Did You Treat Other People Yesterday?

“Should Jesus deal with us as we too often deal with one another, who of us could be saved?” Ministry of Healing, page 494

This is a sobering statement regarding how Christians treat one another.

We are too concerned about our own feelings and position in society that sets us up for repeated failure.

Our hearts desire to do what is right, but pride and greed creep in without notice and we fail.

Only by studying the life of Jesus each day can we overcome, as God gives us His strength.

Daily Spiritual Exercise is something we need to embrace and practice.

I praise God for His love that provides us with what we need to come closer to Him.

Let’s Be Positive Today!

“It never pays to think of our grievances.” Ministry of Healing, page 492

It is tempting to wallow in dark places when we feel down.

Satan attacks from all directions and many grievances pile at our door.

But our attention needs to remain on Jesus and moving forward, however slow or fast.

This is our calling and how we act with a graciousness that only is possible with help from God.

So let’s think of positive things today and praise God.

How are You Acting Today?

“Always act from principle, never from impulse.” Ministry of Healing, page 491

Advertisers know how many people are led with the simplist efforts.

Retailers place items by the cash register for people to purchase on impulse.

The modern mind is trained to be impulsive, but those who spend time studying Scripture are stronger.

Spiritual Exercise (Bible study, prayer & meditation on God’s Word) changes everything.

When we spend time each day with God, we are less impulsive and more like Jesus.

I praise God for this solution to so many problems.

There Is Good Following Evil Attacks

“All experiences and circumstances are God’s workmen whereby good is brought to us” Ministry of Healing, page 489

God is in control, even when it looks like all is lost.

Some evil strikes His people in order to show faith under duress, like modern day Job’s.

Who are we to question God?

It is ours to serve in faith that edifies those who are watching our every move.

I pray that any troubles facing you today will be understood as a spiritual attack.

And I pray for you that you will withstand the attacks of the evil one.

How Do You Feel Today?

“If you do not feel light-hearted and joyous, do not talk of your feelings.” Ministry of Healing, page 488

There is no point on dwelling on the negative.

It does no good to reinforce feelings of discouragement by reliving and reviewing them.

It is better to move those feelings to the foot of the Cross and think of Jesus.

Replace bad feelings with spiritual ones, and then wait for the Holy Spirit to rescue you.

We are so blessed by the power from God each and every day.

Try it!

I praise Him again today for this love that will not let me go.

“If Christ dwells in us, we shall be patient, kind, and forbearing, cheerful amid frets and irritations.” Ministry of Healing, page 487

This quote reminds me of 1 Corinthians chapter 13, and it describes love.

Jesus is like this. His behavior is mild and pleasant under all conditions. His wrath is totally distorted by many preachers and priests.

I’m so thankful for a God that is loving.

I praise Him again today for this love that will not let me go.

Jesus is out best example for this advice. Although He was tortured, His feelings remained unaffected.

This is difficult and cannot be done without help.

Yes, we need divine assistance, and it is available for the asking.

What a woderful gift!

I praise God again today for these many gifts of love.

Do You Feel God’s Power Today?

“The strength of those who love and serve Him will be renewed day by day. Ministry of Healing, page 482

Where does it come from? We might wake in the morning in a state of weakness and poor health, but after Spiritual Exercise of Bible study, prayer and meditation on God’s Word, the Holy Spirit renews our strength.

This is a miracle happening every day.

Let’s recognize it for what it is!

This strength allows us to be a blessing to others. It allows us to express our inner love in practical ways.

I am so thankful for God’s power in our lives, and I praise Him today.

We can rest our hearts on the victory of Calvary.

So lets be joyful and wise.

Lets pass by the materialism of this age.

Lets make a difference with the love of Jesus.

I praise God for His promises that reveal the truth about the future.

What’s Supreme in Your Life Today?

“Those who accept the one principle of making the service of God supreme, will find perplexities vanish, and a plain path before their feet.” Ministry of Healing, page 481

Confusion reigns in the minds of many young people who face large decisions regarding their future.

The attend university and wonder what they should study.

The world is confused, and people rush from one thing to another without guidance.

But God has a solution for those who are faithful.

God must be supreme in our lives and we must have Spiritual Exercis each day to receive the full benefits.

I pray that you will come to Jesus today and make Him supreme in your life.

Some day we will be able to look back and see the full truth in this statement.

This, once again, reveals God’s love, and points to the unity He seeks from us.

Jesus invited us to be one with Him and the Father, so why don’t we do it?

I praise God for this love that will not let us go.

Yield Precedes Success

“We are not to try to do the work of the potter. Our part is to yield ourselves to be molded by the Master-worker.” Ministry of Healing, page 472

I find this difficult to do.

We are given creative abilities and desires. We have energy and skills.

And the key here is to submit at the beginning of the day; dedicate ourselves to the work God gives us; and then what we do should be what God wants us to do.

Resistance to evil tendencies after Spiritual Exercise uses God’s power, not our own.

This is the life we should lead.

Don’t you like this? I do.

I praise God today for this advice that changes lives.

Admit it – You’re a Sinner Too

“It is only he who knows himself to be a sinner that Christ can save.” Ministry of Healing, page 455

We look into the mirror with honesty and see ourselves as who we are in preparation for salvation.

This process gives us humility – a much needed ingredient for witnessing.

It changes the way we view the lives of other people. We see people struggling with issues and feel empathy instead of scorn.

This is the way it should be.

I pray for you and you pray for me. We pray for each other and attempt to heal all wounds.

Spending time with God each day in worship, brings a desire to be more like Him.

I praise God today for this advice that heals.

You Are Involved In A Spiritual War

“The Christian life is a battle and a march. In this warfare there is no release; the effort must be continuous and persevering.” Ministry of Healing, page 453

Although this is true, we must remember to focus our attention away from the battle and keep it on Jesus.

All of the power necessary to conduct the battle must come from God.

If we rely upon our own strength, we are doomed.

It’s simple, but too easy to forget and become distracted.

Each day we need to spend time with God in Spiritual Exercises of prayer, Bible study and meditation on God’s Word.

There is no alternative.

I praise God today that He loves us this much to help us follow the path He has for us, however difficult.

“A knowledge of God. . .is the only real safeguard against temptation.” Ministry of Healing, page 409

This is one reason why it is important for us to study the Bible as part of our daily Spiritual Exercise.

As we come to know God, we are drawn closer to Him and our desires become His desires.

This is a life-changing process that we are invited to enjoy.

I praise God for the ability to grow closer to Him and be His friend.

Who Are You Looking At Today?

“It is not wise to look to ourselves, and study our emotions. . We are to look away from self to Jesus.” Ministry of Healing, page 249

As we study ourselves we convince ourselves of our limitations and what we are not good at.

But with Jesus, all things are possible, and we can be transformed into what He wants for us.

With Jesus, we accept who we are and where we are, and begin building and growing, until we become a new creature.

This is an amazing process of education and maturity that might take years, but can be steady growth.

I praise God for the ability to grow into beyond our imagination.

“The Holy Spirit will teach us how to appropriate every blessing that will be an antidote to grief. For every bitter draught that is placed on our lips, we shall find a branch of healing.” Ministry of Healing, page 248

This is very encouraging to me, to know that God has provided healing for grief, and I have experienced this when my parents died.

We have a hope that the world has not.

We know there will, one day, be a resurrection.

And all suffering will become a distant memory to be willfully forgotten.

How Simple Is Your Life?

“Only by a life of simplicity, self-denial, and close economy, is it possible for us to accomplish the work appointed us as Christ’s representatives.” Ministry of Healing, page 206

Perhaps too many Christians follow the world and desire wealth.

Perhaps you do it without realizing. Do you want a larger house? Or newer car?

While some in the world are down-sizing and minimizing, you and I keep on buying and buying more and more stuff.

Simplicity is a unique word, expressing a life style to be followed as part of our calling.

I encourage you to meditate upon this thought today.

You and I should help in this effort for those who are most vulnerable.

We can do this, but it needs to come from love and not duty.

As salt of the earth, our love can make a difference and draw people to Jesus.

He who owns the world is rich in resources, and will bless everyone who is seeking to bless others. (Ministry of Healing, page 200)

This should be our life’s work, always looking outward.

While the world looks inward to increase wealth and greed, while people clamor for more of what the world offers, you and I should demonstrate how love seeks to bless other people.

Love stands out in the crowd. Love changes things and helps us to be more humble.

intent on placing it in my pocket
