Tuesday 30 th March               1 John 1 : 1 – 4

Fellowship   We have fellowship with many people, enjoying the exchange of words, ideas and affection. But the greatest fellowship we can have is with our Lord and our God. Through the blessing of the Holy Spirit we can converse with our Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. We come to them, wanting not only to worship them, but to hear from them and be guided by their wise counsel. In our fellowship we have interchange of words and prayers. We can ask what we need answers for, and God speaks to us and implants His thoughts in our minds. People must not think that God does not hear us when we pray. He knows our deepest thoughts and longings, and desires a loving relationship with us as His children! God loves having fellowship with us – His created beings! Give thanks to our Lord and our God for loving fellowship!

 

Wednesday 31 st March               Galatians 2 : 14

Walk a straight path!   Don’t pretend to be what you are not! Be true to who you are – a child of God. When we are young we are exposed to all sorts of behaviour and have to be selective as to what we take part in! When we met and gave our heart to Jesus, promising to follow His will and way, He came to live in us and show us a new way of living. Jesus lived a true and faithful life and encourages us to follow His example. God gives us the will to do what is right. He fills our hearts and minds with truth, so that if we are encouraged to do something that is not according to His will and way, our minds tell us not to get involved. God always is by our side encouraging us to walk the path He has set before us. His path leads us to Eternity. Live your life in honour of our Lord and Saviour. Give God your best in e very situation.

 

Thursday 1 st April             Isaiah 8 : 12 – 13

Fear the Lord!   The Lord is Almighty. He is God alone, ruler of all of His creation. We are in awe of His greatness. Look up to the Lord. Worship Him, honour Him, and serve Him with holiness. He is Mighty. God above all. He is able to do all things. Respect and honour the Lord, our God. He rules over all. He is Holy, to be revered and honoured at all times. Don’t do anything that dishonours our Lord and our God. Respect Him, fear Him, and worship Him. He is our Creator God. He made us for His own joy! He watches over us with delight, for He loves His own. Honour the Lord with holy fear! God is Almighty! Blessed Father, Son and Holy Spirit we worship and honour You! We raise You high, so that all of Your Creation can worship, praise and honour Your Holy Name. Blessed is the Lord God Almighty, now and always!

 

Friday 2 nd April                  1 Corinthians 13 : 1 – 13

Love is Eternal!   When we read this chapter, God impresses on our hearts just how much He loves us! God is Love! He wants every person He created to know of His love. Day by day as we go about our lives, God is watching over us and protecting and guiding us. His love for us is absolute and His watchful care is to ensure our safety from the evils that abound. There is no limit to the love He surrounds us with. It is not a stifling love, but one that enables us to live and grow sustained by His love. God’s love for us, His creation, is limitless and eternal! Yet we don’t know the fullness and extent of His love for us, His creation. We bask in His love. We live successfully in His love. We love others through the love He pours into our hearts. We are made rich through God’s love for us. His love is eternally ours. Praise and thanks to God for His abiding love for us!

 

Saturday  3 rd April             John 17 : 13

The joy of the Lord!   Jesus wants us to have His joy in our hearts! What does that mean to us? The joy of His love is our strength! The joy that Jesus had comes from God, our Father, and enabled Him to experience all that the world threw at Him, and not be disturbed, for His faith and trust is in God Almighty, His Father, and ours! The joy that Jesus had is one that we too can experience. As we place ourselves wholly in God’s Hands, releasing all our care, worries, sorrow or concerns to Him, He replaces those emotions with a flood of joy and trust in his abiding love. With joy in our hearts we can go forward and face all the difficulties that the world throws at us and not be fazed. Put your hand in the Hand of the Lord and walk into the world with joy –our Saviour is with us. Let joy fill your heart and soul! The Lord is with you – always!

We worship and honour You every moment of the day, for Your hand of blessing is with us and protects and cares for us. Thank You for Your loving kindness, for Your teaching of the things of God that we need to learn and take deep into our hearts. Bless You Lord, for watching over us and keeping us safe day by day. We bring our gifts to You O Lord, and thank You for Your generosity toward us. We praise and worship Your holy Name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Blessed is the Lord Almighty, now and forever more. Amen!
