    and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then the herald cried aloud, 'To you it is commanded, peoples, nations, and languages, that whenever you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music, you fall down and worship the golden image tha...

    He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called 'The Place of a Skull', which is called in Hebrew, 'Golgotha', where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle. Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, 'JESUS OF NAZARETH...

    He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. Psalms 147:3 WEBWhen sharks sense blood in the water, they will go into a feeding frenzy where they attack the wounded and devour them, even if the wounded is another shark.

Time to Shine

  • David said to Saul, Your servant was keeping his father's sheep; and when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after him, and struck him, and delivered it out of his mouth; and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and struck him, and killed him. Your servant struck both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God. 1 Samuel 17:34 WEB

    When David walked out on the battlefield to meet the giant Goliath, it was not his first time fighting something big and scary. God had been preparing David for years while he was tending the sheep in a common, everyday, typical job. It was a job that no one else even wanted to do. Out of the eight sons, David was the only one tending the sheep on the day that Samuel came to visit. While some of his brothers were soldiers (1Samuel 17:17).

    During that shepherd job, David learned to kill lions and bears, and now this giant was in front of him. None of that was by accident. God had trained him for this, and now it was his time to shine. David did not start out by facing a giant. He started smaller. God prepares you for his work ahead of time, sometimes using the most mundane things.

    I spent twenty years working on computer networks, building mail servers, web servers and the like, and now I use the things that I learned along the way to build an online church. God is efficient, and He wastes nothing. He can use what He has placed in your life to further His kingdom in some way.

    The common, everyday tasks that you deal with daily prepare you for something bigger. The skills that you develop in the natural can be used by Him. Do your best at what He has given you so that when it is time, you can make it count.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You let me see my life through Your eyes for a change. Show me how I can make a difference and let me experience divine encounters in my life. Teach me, train me, use me Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I've realized that God has been training me all my life to be able to do what I'm doing right now....to trust Him to restore my one-flesh covenant marriage. He brought me out of the sin of remarriage....which is a man-made word to make adultery not sound so bad!

Amen. I suffer with chronic pain issues high blood pressure Ptsd anxiety and several other issues. I have to take 13 medications daily as well as otc . Recently I have been trying natural non addicting pain relief and omega3 to try getting off narcotics. I have been praying for God to help me with this because I just feel over medicated. I went to pain mgt dr yesterday and he told me that he is going to start weaning me off narcotics within next couple of months because it's very bad for my liver. I told him that Im ready. I have been with him since 2007 and other drs before that. I know now that God has been preparing me. At one time I would have freaked out..but the closer I am in my walk with God the more I realize that big changes are going to happen in my life and I want a clear mind to be able to listen more closely to His still small voice and be open to all he wants me to do. I have seen such a difference in His plans for me in just the last month or so. In just the last week I have met 3 ladies in distress who needed to hear from him and to remind them that they are not alone and have prayed with them. Two of them live within 3 miles from me and plan to go to church with me. I have made new friends so close to home. Im so excited to see what else He has in store for me. I feel so alive happy and renewal now. Praises to Him. Sorry such a long comment but want others who feel lonely left out or whatever situation they're in to know there is still hope and encouragement if we just have the faith of a mustard seed...that it can be a life changing experience. May the Lord bless and keep you today. Rebecca

I do believe that God wants us to remember how He has worked in our life in the past. That encourages us to keep serving Him, and to remember that it is Gods work!
