    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

The Morning Update

  • Early in the morning, while it was still dark, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there. Simon and those who were with him searched for him. They found him and told him, 'Everyone is looking for you.' Mark 1:35 WEB

    Jesus would often withdraw from the noisy crowds to be alone with His Heavenly Father in prayer. It was here that He chose His disciples, refreshed His strength, prepared for the coming day, and got the next mission. It was His morning update.

    Jesus' life was not have a cake walk while here on the earth. He was tested in every way just as we are, and He passed every test (Hebrews 4:15). Jesus earned 'Worthy is the Lamb', it was not given to Him. Part of it involved praying hard and regularly.

    We often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the day and slowly start to fall apart under the stress. If we can get alone and spend some time in prayer, those things will heal and begin to fall into place. God will help us take care of it, but we still need to ask.

    When you don't know the answer, He does. When you don't have the resources, He does. When you feel lost and don't know what to do next, He does. When no one else on earth cares about you, He does.

    No matter how busy you get today, set aside a little time for prayer so that you can refresh your spirit and get your morning update. You build yourself up by praying (Jude 20). We are to pray always and not give up (Luke 18:1). Spending time with God will provide the answer to your questions.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for all that You do for me. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Walk with me and talk with me today. Help me learn to recognize Your voice, and to know when You are leading me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

We get so busy with all our important daily lives and issues and they are important.  But ...... it is just to easy to overlook time with our master - the boss.   Jesus is ourvexample and model - Time with HIM makes sense out of life whether it's a problem or directions - PRAYER AND DAILY COMMUNICATION IS AS INPORTANT AS WATER AND AIR TO US AS HUMANS- love this devotion!

Hello Mike 

I just had to share with you. This morning at Church I went up to the front where several Pastors were waiting for others like myself to pray for me. I have had a lot of issues for about six weeks. My cousin, Darrell, passed away.He was only 46.He lost a battle with Bone Cancer, leaving behind his wife and 13 yr old daughter. I hadn't seen him for many years,but my sister and I were blessed to go visit him a few weeks ago. We talked about good memories of our childhood and laughed a lot. He was one of the bravest men I will ever know. He and I talked alone for a few minutes and the talk was one I will always cherish. I asked him if he was afraid and he very calmly said "No, I'm not. I will either be healed here on earth, or I will be healed in Heaven." I could not hold my tears back. He then said I'm sorry,but am very tired, so we said our goodbyes, See you next time. Now, my Aunt is battling Cancer once again. She has beat it many times in her life. So, with all that being said, I had gone into depression once again. Stopped going to Church, stopped reading my Bible faithfully every day. I had lost my joy. Today I was late for Church but God was waiting on me. So, I too, HAVE BEEN RENEWED AND came out of Church totally different from when I walked in. PRAISES TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. My tablet hasn't worked for several days and, as you can see, Im sharing with you. I just want you to know that your post reached out to me and that I'm so happy that you chose to share. I pray and hope you will stay on your new journey just as I will. WE HAVE BEEN RENEWED. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND GIVE YOU ALL OF YOUR JOY BACK.
