The Week Ahead

This week, we will be sharing some thoughts from the study of Psalm 17 and 18.

Below are some questions for reflection: 

Psalm 17
What does David pray for? What are the contrasting goals of himself and his enemies? What can a person do to keep the worldly goals of prosperity and pride from creeping into your life?

Psalm 18:1-24
What is David’s trial (See 2 Samuel 22:1-51)? As a deliverer, how does God take action? What can be done when life puts pressure on us from all angles? How can we gain the righteousness needed in order to be rewarded by God?

Believe that God has a great plan for you.

It all starts with receiving a plan from God through faithful, consistent, and powerful prayer. Here is a video/poem to inspire you this day and throughout the week: This Day with God.

The Things of God

Here is a poem which inspires toward the keys to successfully realizing your God given purpose. Have a wonderful weekend as you fulfill your purpose my friends!

Step Ahead

Many times the things
We think look good
End up not so good
And such a falsehood.
Then things we don’t
Think will be good
End up being good
When truly understood.

If the things of God
Are what is cherished
Then we have all
As the soul is nourished.
Reading daily His Word,
Our prayer request,
And planning towards
Being at our best.

Over the course of life
All the great things
Don’t magically happen
But spring from our King.
Our ongoing commitment
To build momentum
For life and beyond
As we are devoted to Him.

Perfect in all of Your Ways

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 

A moving target makes success very unlikely. What if the bases where never in the same place in baseball and we didn’t know where first base was or where second base was?  There wouldn’t be a chance to get to home base and not many runs would be scored would they?

Unfortunately, we constantly receive conflicting information in this game of life.

Just as it is important to know where the bases are in a baseball game to win, it’s even more important to know the rules in life. Fortunately, we have God’s Word as our rule book.

So this day, work together with fellow believers and build up the kingdom. Know the most important rule is that you are loved by God because of accepting His Son as Savior. Receive inspiration from today’s video: Good, Good Father – Chris Tomlin.
