Psalm 107:1 “O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endures forever.” Point To Ponder: Through Christ man has Peace with & from God never known before! God’s Mercy did not nor does it excuse sin; His Mercy keeps us from getting what’s deserved because of sin. Because God’s Mercy endures forever; we should always be in praise mode while being ever mindful of His goodness! Oh, God being good is not just a commodity He sometimes gives out. God being good IS HIS CHARACTER; it’s who......

Colossians 4:2 “Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.” Point To Ponder: Because of who God is, our prayers too God (in the Name of Christ) should never be followed with doubt or fear, but always followed by faithful anticipation and gratitude. As we watch the things of the day, there is a need for us to continue in prayer by keeping a running conversation with God throughout the day! Anticipation in prayer is knowing God hears the prayers of His children. Gratitude is thanking God for His past......

Colossians 4:2 “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Point To Ponder: Being devoted to God is daily giving oneself too God! Prayer is keeping an all-day running conversation with God! Being watchful is staying attentive to God’s Word, putting nothing before God! Gratitude, because of past blessings, is an inward emotion that arises AND no matter where we are, we can’t help but say ‘Thank You Lord!’ Thanksgiving includes a shout of praise, expressing an inward gratitude TO God for mercies received FROM God! That is then expressed out-loud that......

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Point To Ponder: Faith, a Blessed Gift from God, is the core of our relationship with God! Faith IN God grabs hold of the truth IN God’s Word! Faith is energized by the Spirit of God! Faith {should} totally rest ON God’s Faithfulness; not stuff, circumstances nor things not seen! Faith rest in God who sees, knows & is in control of ALL things! God Is the same yesterday, today and forever more! His Capabilities,......

Colossians 3:15-16 “And be thankful . . . as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” Point To Ponder: To thank God after the fact is gratitude. Faith is thanking God in advance! Thankfulness points to the Faithfulness OF God in all things without complaints about anything. To obey this command, we are to teach, be taught; to admonish and be admonished out of the Wisdom of God’s Word. A benefit of thanking God......

James 5:13 “Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise.” Point To Ponder: Clarity in God’s Word! When in trouble or happy our focus is on God who deserves our praise no matter the circumstance. Without trouble we’d never learn Who holds us while showing us we can always depend on Him! In good times, we learn ALL Blessings come from Him! In either occasion, we learn what God instructs us to do now, we will be engaged in doing for......

Psalm 119:59-60 “I pay careful attention as you lead me, and I follow closely. As soon as you command, I do what you say.” Point To Ponder: Most times, we ask God to bless our plans for the day instead of seeking His Plans for the day. This morning with humbleness, seek then accept directions from God. Pay careful attention: Where He directs; go. Where He leads; follow. When and how He commands; obey. When we look back tonight, we’ll see how God adjusted our path for His Glory and our benefit.......

Mark 14:38 “Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit is ready, but the flesh is weak.” Point To Ponder: We are warned to ‘watch’ (be on guard) for the subtle suggestions of Satan & ourselves; to lookout ‘lest ye’ fall into the fleshly trap of selfishness, complaints, finger-pointing, blaming & gossip. Watch what we dwell on that’s not of God as that gives an entry for Satan to influence our thoughts. Instead of taking the lead; let’s be led by the Holy Spirit! Let Him Guard our heart......

John 5:7-8 “The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” Point To Ponder: We’ve all been there. We’ve all felt Afraid-Weak-Powerless, Helpless; incapable of doing anything for ourselves. This was the condition of us all until Jesus redeemed us! This story is of a man with excuses. He blamed all but himself; until he met Jesus at......

Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Point To Ponder: For our daily spiritual & physical needs, we are invited to ‘Ask:’ Of God! From His Endless Storehouse, He will supply! From His Word ‘Seek’ His instructions and directions & discover what He has gifted us to do & the daily path He’s already set for us. ‘Seek’ to speak a Word of blessing to someone, to guide someone to Christ; to be equipped to......
