    Is your problem overwhelming?  SEPTEMBER 22 … the God of heaven, He will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build … Nehemiah 2:20 Do you have any problems today? You do? Well, I just have one word for you: “Congratulations!” I don’t want to sound flippant, but I’m very serious. Nehemiah faced a problem with overwhelming odds: While in exile in Persia, he learned that his home city—the city of God, Jerusalem—was laid waste. All her walls were destroyed. And God was calling him to return home and rebuild the city. You see, a problem really is an opportunity in disguise. You need to learn that God wants you to see your problems as potentialities and your adversaries as opportunities. As men and women of faith, we need to stop seeing a difficulty in every opportunity, and start asking God to show us the opportunity in every difficulty. We serve a great God. And someone has well said that prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, it is laying hold of his willingness. Find a promise in the Word of God and then stand upon it. Think of a problem you are struggling through today. Now, get on your knees. Ask God to show you the opportunity hidden away in your struggle that will bring Him glory.

    September 22 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11 When the President of the United States moves from place to place—even a stroll across the White House lawn—He is encircled by a security team. God’s covenant people are on mission in the world. As they move about on Kingdom business, God’s servants are surrounded by their own squadron. God’s angels are His messengers and warriors. Nothing can touch a person on Kingdom business. Some are called to die as martyrs. When that happens, it’s not that the angels failed, but that the plan of God succeeded, and the individual’s mission was completed.

    Salvation Is An Act of God By Billy Graham   •   September 22   •   Topics: Salvation Share Tweet Home Daily Devotion Salvation Is An Act of God There is salvation in no one else! Under all heaven there is no other name for men to call upon to save them.—Acts 4:12 (TLB) Salvation is an act of God. It is initiated by God, wrought by God, and sustained by God. The faith that saves the soul is described as faith in Christ as the Son of God—not as a good man or a great man, but as the uniquely begotten Son of the living God! This is consistent with the witness of the entire New Testament and with the proclamations of the first preachers of the Gospel. All proclaim the necessity of faith in Jesus Christ as deity. Concerned about your salvation and going to Heaven? Read what Billy Graham has to say. Prayer for the day Lord Jesus, Son of God, I worship You unreservedly and praise Your holy name.

    The Fruit of the Spirit by Max Lucado   The Bible says, “If God were to withdraw his Spirit, all life would disappear and mankind would return again to dust” (Job 34:14-15). And Ephesians 1:13 says that the Holy Spirit enters the believer upon confession of faith. From that point forward the Christian has access to the very power and personality of God. They begin to think the way God thinks, love the way God loves, and see the way God sees. And this power includes the gifts of the Spirit: “love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”   As our relationship with God is secured and unmarred by rebellion, sin, or stubborn behavior, we can expect a harvest of fruit! We need not force it, but we can expect it. It simply falls to us to stay connected. And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!   From Unshakable Hope by Max Lucado

    Once again, I have had several instances of a recurring theme show up, getting my attention. In this case it revolves around a shoe. You see, ever since I broke my leg, the time I spent recovering and healing, I found myself truly diving into Gods word for solace and comfort. I also spent a great deal of time painting, (although the paint was digital, just me and my iPad) I was playing around one day and just happened to start a free-form painting, something that looked like a woman's high heel shoe emerged, so I went with it. It came out fantastic, it pleased me so much, that it became the first in a series of shoes. I thought later on about it that perhaps it was because I was injured and desirous of being able to return to such attire (which seemed really far off, if ever at all).LOLRolling ahead, I've recovered, but keep painting my fancy shoes amongst other works of art. Incidentally, over over the last few weeks, I've been drawn to several passages in the Bible, all of which revolve around a shoe or shoes. I watched the movie, the Story of Ruth from the Bible, (Ruth 4:7) who became the wife of Boaz, (the Great Grandparents of David) I read about Moses being instructed to remove his shoes, as he was standing on Holy ground (Exodus 3:5) and the same thing for Joshua (Joshua 5: 14-15). Further research uncovered yet other mention of shoes, such as (Amos 2:6) which refers to Joseph, who was sold by his brothers into slavery! (which speaks to the injustices of this world, those who sit in high places who have dominion and power, supposing to be in good standing, who are not)Every account mentioned above, has different meanings, different connotations attached, one meant concession (forfeiting their possession or rights thereto) another meant humbleness, in standing before God and yet another stood for symbolism of an injustice (where money, possession and power were favored over the kinship of blood and brotherhood). So what is the underlying unifying theme to all of this. It is obedience, obtaining it, remaining in it or the lack of it!I think of a baby, walking around with no shoes, barefoot and it conjures up thoughts of trust, being carefree and cared for. God wants us in spirit to be barefoot to Him, like a baby. We see the loss of a shoe, as symbolic, this applies to anything you might have lost in your life; if it's yours and meant for you, worn by you, what use is it to anyone else?! In all honesty those that take from others will find that their spoils are as useful as one shoe, in other words useless! That which is taken from us wrongfully, will surely have to be returned or counted to us for restitution. Then we have the conscious and intentional forfeit, isn't that a picture of dying to this world for the gain of Christ Jesus?! Having the Lord dwell within us, shouldn't we allow Him to fill our shoes? To order our footsteps and keep us on that path?! Blessed are the feet of those who spread the Gospel! Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! I hope that gives you some new insights on the significance of walking with the Lord and staying in step with the rhythm of obedience! Have a Blessed week!Heavenly Father, I plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over the family, my brothers and sisters in Christ, Lord. let our footsteps always be in proper alignment. Keep us on the path to attaining Your righteousness, go before us in all things preparing the way. Help us to stand strong in Your will and walk swiftly away from anything that is not pleasing to You. Steady us in our endeavors and bless us as we carry out your commands in this life as well as the one promised to us, which is coming soon! In Jesus Yehushua Mighty name, we pray amen!Amos 2:6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes;Joshua 5: 14-15 He said, “No; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the LORD.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?” 15The captain of the LORD’S host said to Joshua, “Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so. Exodus 3:5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.Ruth4:7 Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbour: and this was a testimony in Israel.Isaiah 52:7How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publishes peace; that brings good tidings of good, that publishes salvation; that says unto Zion, Your God reigns!*´¨) ¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨) (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ Susan SMZ3D ت smz ™ © ® NOW on Podcast!http://www.spreaker.com/show/the_monday_message_by_susanmarie_z The Monday Message Blogwww.TheMondayMorningMessage.comThe Monday Message of FBhttps://www.facebook.com/MondayMorningMessageThe Eternal Body Of Christ on FBhttps://www.facebook.com/TheEternalBodyOfChrist

    What Makes Christianity Different? By Billy Graham   •   April 7 Share22K+ Tweet Home Daily Devotion What Makes Christianity Different? He is not here, but is risen.—Luke 24:6 Something distinguishes Christianity from all the religions of the world. Not only does it carry the truth of the redemption, by the death of our Savior for our sins on the cross, but it carries the fact that Christ rose again. Only the Christian faith claims that its Leader died and rose again and is alive at this moment. Many gravestones carry the inscription, “Here lies . . . ,” but on Christ’s tomb are emblazoned the words, “He is not here.” Christianity has no shrines to visit, no dusty remains to venerate, no tombs at which to worship. Many good men have lived, and still live, in the memory of those who knew them, but there is only one Man who conquered death—Jesus Christ—and He will live forever. Listen to Billy Graham explain the resurrection in one minute. Prayer for the day The account of Your resurrection never ceases to bring me joy, Lord Jesus.

    God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him. John Wesley

    Love Has to Grow Joni Eareckson Tada, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” -1 Corinthians 13:4, 6-7 Love must grow. It can’t stand still, and it certainly cannot go backward. Love must flourish or else it withers and dies. In fact, growth in a relationship is very much like growth in a tree or flower. If a flower doesn’t bloom, if a tree doesn’t sprout leaves, it signals a problem. Our love for the Lord Jesus is also a living thing. We are intimately united with Him in His body. Remember, love between you and your Lord, like anything that lives, must grow. Just think 1 Corinthians 13 is how God feels about you! We can always come up with good excuses as to why our relationships do not progress and increase in love. But instead of blaming others, ask yourself a couple of direct questions about love. Do I protect my loved one’s reputation? Are my expectations unrealistic? Do I pray committedly? Does my love cover a multitude of the other’s sins? Do I keep Christ at the center of our relationship? Lord, help me to be patient and kind toward others. Help me not to envy those who seem to be enjoying tremendous progress and increase in their marriages. Help me not to boast when I’m right, or be proud when others are wrong. Help me not to be rude to my husband… wife… or friend. I don’t want my love to be self-seeking, or easily angered. And, Lord, convict me if I start keeping a record of wrongs, for I desire that my love will always rejoice with the truth. Help me to have faith, hope, and love ever increasing, ever growing. Taken from Diamonds in the Dust. © 1993 by Joni Eareckson Tada.
