“How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways.” Psalm 128:1
“Praise the LORD! How blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in His commandments.” Psalm 112:1
“How blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the LORD. How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart? They also do no unrighteousness. They walk in His ways.” Psalm 119:1-3
I’m blessed today. I’m fully alive and in good health. Help me walk in Your ways today. I am delighting in all Your precepts.
“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14
“But, immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying; Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.” Matthew 14:27
“The angel answered and said to him, I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news. And behold, you shall be silent and unable to speak until the day when these things take place because you did not believe my words, which will be fulfilled in their proper time.” Luke 1:19
Lord, I will not be alone this Holiday season, I’ve got Jesus in my heart. I will not be afraid, I’ve got Jesus ahead of me. I will not be shaken this Holiday season, I’ve got Immanuel who encourages me to take the next step. I believe, help me with my unbelief. In Jesus’ name I boldly and courageously, I pray. Amen.
“Make vows to the Lord your
God and fulfill them;
Let all who are around
Him bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.”
you make a vow to God, do not be late in paying it; for He takes no
delight in fools. Pay what you vow! It
is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.Do not
let your speech cause you to sin and do not say in the presence of the
messenger of God that it was a mistake. Why should God be
angry on account of your voice and destroy the work of your hands?” Ecclesiastes
“And many were bringing gifts to the Lord at
Jerusalem and choice presents to Hezekiah king of Judah, so that he was exalted
in the sight of all nations thereafter.” 2 Chronicles 32:23
Help me keep all commitments. When I am fatigued, help me stay alert and focused at all times. When I am overwhelmed, help me get enough rest for the challenge at hand.
I want to serve others as best as I can. I want
to share all of my gifts with the world.
I will share my talents and skills so others will
benefit. I was fearfully and wonderfully made by You so I may serve one day at
a time on your behalf.
“Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; And deliver us and forgive our sins for Your name’s sake” Psalm 79:9
“Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, “Lord, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O Lord our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; let not man prevail against You.”
2 Chronicles 14:11
“For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake, You will lead me and guide me.” Psalm 31:3
it was quite a fast-paced week at work.
Help me slow down, meditate on Your promises and know You are God who is in control.
You are my rock, fortress and the greatest Counselor who leads the way.
Please forgive me if I do not follow Your commands. There is no one besides You.
When I’m distracted, please redirect my focus back to You.
it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing
that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And
let endurance have its perfect
result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
James 1: 2-4
the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold,
which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in
praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter
“so that you will not be sluggish, but
imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
“By your endurance, you will gain your
lives.” Luke 21:19
In life, there are many transitions. Some life-altering
moments or life changes are easier than others. While I encounter various
trials, I know the testing of my faith produces endurance.
I need Your guidance, comfort, and strength so I may
endure the initial stages of the upcoming transition. My faith will be tested,
I will praise and honor You as I adapt to my new lifestyle.
It is so exciting to have your rest. You are right there watching it all and protecting me from any given evil schemes. My desire is to display Your fragrance as I walk into challenging circumstances today.
“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things? For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.”
2 Corinthians 2:14-17
“What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.” Romans 1:15-18
“…and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” Ephesians 5:2
“But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.” Philippians 4:18
Lord, I am your beloved daughter for such a time as this… Allow Your fragrance to spread among those who are either lukewarm, in darkness or even lost. Help me speak Your truth in love and glorify Your name. Break down all Your teachings so I understand them clearly. Show me ‘how to’ be obedient. Help me take ungodly thoughts captive so I can surrender these negative thoughts at the feet of the Cross. I want to be a slave of righteousness, walk in love, share Your wisdom to those who are in desperately need, and always maintain a fragrant aroma.
“As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tested; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. God is my strong fortress; And He sets the blameless in His way. He makes my feet like hinds’ feet, And sets me on my high places.” 2 Samuel 22: 31, 33-34
“The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright are He.” Deuteronomy 32: 4
Lord, You are a shield and my fortress. As I rely on You for strength, guidance, and comfort, You are faithful and merciful. You are my only Rock! Thank You, Jesus, for being so steadfast in my life. In Jesus’ name, I boldly praise. Amen.

Starting on November 1, we will continue with our morning posts (the Book of Psalms) in our accountability women’s closed group and just added the evening posts (November: A Grateful Heart, December: The Book of Luke, January… etc.)
In 2020, morning posts will cover the entire Bible and for those who may not be interested in reading the Bible cover to cover next year, you will also have the evening posts with themed journals. It is so exciting to have options in life.
You can also do both, morning and evening posts as you wish OR just do one. It’s your choice. Isn’t nice to have options in life?
We will be having monthly drawings for those who participate and encourage others.
