Morning Devotion 03/11/2018

Yesterday was a milestone. I started doing daily devotions on Facebook on 3/10/2017. I never missed a day to share scriptures to express something I had felt the Lord had laid on my heart. I have enjoyed this past year trying to share something from the Word of God that would provoke and inspire others to have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. To expect blessings from the Lord every day. When I looked back on the first few devotions; I was amazed how much the devotionals have grown both in inspiration and in length. The first one was only 92 words, now I am up to 300+ on an average (sometimes 500+ on my long- winded days). Today I am going to share the first devotional that I submitted. The message has not changed. There will always be challenges but when you are empowered with the Holy Spirit you are an overcomer.

2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.” {“Scripture quotations taken from the Amplified Bible.” www.Lockman.org}. Whatever challenges you are facing today remember that you are empowered by His Spirit to face them. Look at every road block as spiritual hurdles to strengthen your trust in Him. May everyone realize that today is full of blessings for the grabbing.

I am working on turning the past year into a yearly devotional book. I will be working on it for the next few months. Compiling the data and revising the devotions to fit into a book. Once completed, I will be posting where you can pick up a copy for yourself. For right now this will be my last devotional post for a while. This past year I focused on everything being a blessing and that you are blessed beyond measure. As always, receive your blessings today.

Psalm 1:1-6 (AMP)
1 BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].
4 Not so the wicked [those disobedient and living without God are not so]. But they are like the chaff [worthless, dead, without substance] which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked [those disobedient and living without God] shall not stand [justified] in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous [those who are upright and in right standing with God].
6 For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God’s will] shall perish (end in ruin and come to nought).

Let today be the day you make a decision to fall in love with the Lord Jesus Christ and his ways. The world does not have the spiritual insight to lead you. Their counsel is filled with selfishness and lusty desires. Spiritual guidance is found in the Word of God and through a relationship with Savior of your soul. He is the vine and you are the branch. Together you are like a tree that is planted by the flowing streams of living water that give you the sustenance that is needed to bear fruit. Your prosperity comes from the Lord. Your blessings flow from heaven; from the throne straight to you. Receive your blessings today.

2 Samuel 22:29-37 (KJV)
29 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.
30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
34 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet: and setteth me upon my high places.
35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.
37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip. 

This is a song of David when the Lord delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul. This would make a beautiful affirmation to speak every day for your own life. It is a song that glorifies God and also speaks good things into your life. It is a song full of blessings. The Lord lights your path where ever you go. He fills you with strength that you feel you can destroy the enemy that stands in your way; and overcome any obstacle that would try to stop you from accomplishing what you want to accomplish. He gives you the wisdom and understanding to reach to higher heights. To make your feet like the feet of the deer means the ability to go higher and higher with very little. The trails up the mountains are not readily seen because the path is so narrow, but the deer have learned to scale those mountains on those narrow pathways. In life you also learn to hurdle any roadblocks. The Lord knows just when to enlarge the pathway to help you on your journey so that you will not slip or fall. Fly this song of victory high upon a banner of your soul and be blessed with the effects of the powerfulness of the words. Speak strong and loudly; and receive your blessings today.
