Tues – Ever Abiding

Good morning! Today, know that the LORD is ever with you. Never does He slip off somewhere and leave you to live and work out things on your own. He is the ever-present One that is your closest intimate, sharing the reality and fullness of all He is and has with you so that you can deal with all the demands you have to successfully negotiate.

Sun – Keeping Smart and Fit

Good morning! Today, consider the importance of these two factors, smartness and fitness. If you were applying for an important job with a notable firm and you were granted an interview, how would you dress and how would you seek to converse with very gifted people? You would seek to look your best and be at your best in communication. This should not, however, be a one off thing. Every day is important in life and whoever you are seen by and have dealings with should see the Christian deportment of your life. Your whole demeanour switches others on because they are charmed by your appearance and conduct. As an ambassador of and for Christ there should be real evidence of smartness and fitness. Such was revealed by the Master and the same goes for His followers.

GOD’S PROMISES

Today’s assurance:

Sow and Reap Well

This is a sound and encouraging assurance to do the right and best thing because it holds the prospect of incredible returns. Harvest is assured as long as there is diligence in the sowing the best kind of seed in the right ground. The opportunity this spiritual Spring-time is to make sure you plant and scatter well. You will be able to bring in a bumper crop because of it. The joy of harvest awaits!

Fri – Take No one and Nothing for Granted!

Good morning! Today make sure that you do not take people or situations for granted. Because you are human you are capable of being deceived and make mistakes. Some can prove very costly, even though you have addressed and dealt with such successfully before. There could be some slight or great changes that have occurred which have somewhat altered things. Wisdom and good sense makes the point that what ensues in life must be respected at the time and truly judged in an up-to-date manner. By following this rule benefit will result and peace will govern mind, emotions and will. Know that the LORD is with you always to aid in whosoever and whatever you confront!

GOD’S PROMISES

Today’s assurance:

“Come unto me all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” – Matthew 11:28. It is possible to carry needless burdens which should be handed to Christ who will deal with them wisely and well at the right time. There are other factors that must be accepted and discharged of in an effective manner through the able assistance of the LORD. Such aid us in our gifting and growth and make us an advantage to many in this life besides preparing us for something bigger in heaven. Instead of being weakened and falling apart through undue weight and stress, allow Him to fulfil His role in your life. He makes existence a great deal easier!

QUOTES TO THINK ABOUT

The Beatitudes as we would have written them:

Happy are the ‘pushers’ for they get on in the world.

Happy are the hard-boiled for they never let life hurt them.

Happy are they who complain: for they get their way in the end.

Happy are the blasé: for they never worry over their sins.

Happy are the slave-drivers: for they get results.

Happy are the knowledgeable men of this world:  for they know their way around.

Happy are the trouble-makers: for they make people take notice of them.
