[As for me] I am poor and needy, yet the Lord takes thought and plans for me. You are my Help and my Deliverer. O my God, do not tarry.

Psalm 40:17

God has a plan for each of us, and the good things that happen to us are not just a coincidence. All good and perfect gifts come from God (see James 1:17). It is exciting to have a relationship with God when we are aware that He is carefully leading and guiding us to His blessings.

If you do not understand something the first time God speaks to you, He will give you another chance and will continue to teach you until you know  clearly the way you should go. Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost ( see Luke 19:10). This means that He will find you if you go astray.

The wicked borrow and pay not again [for they may be unable], but the [uncompromisingly] righteous deal kindly and give [for they are able].

Psalm 37:21

Take a chances today and invest in someone else’s life, especially if God tells you to do so. You may  give them something of value only to learn they waste it as they always have done in the past. but remember that God made an investment in you, an He wants you to be willing to make an investment in somebody else.

Jesus died to give everybody a chance. Not everyone takes advantage of His provision, but we all have an equal opportunity to enjoy the abundant life. If you help someone, and they end up not doing what is right with it, that is between them and God. Give thanks that you are able to give, and then do whatever God tells you to do.

Keep the charge of the Lord your God, walk in His ways, keep His statutes, His commandments, His precepts,

and His testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may do wisely

and prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn,

1 Kings 2:3

When you pray, wait for the Lord. This means to look for, to expect, and to hope in God. This is not a passive state of mind, but one of expectancy.

Tell Him,”God, I have my hope in You. I believe that You are working on my problems. I believe that You are making arrangements for my day. You are posting angels all through out my walk, everywhere along my path where You already know I am going to walk today. Thank you, Lord, that you are a pioneer who has already gone before me and made a way for me to have a blessed day.”

Prompt/Theme for Friday, January 16, 2009

This week’s prompt has two parts:

First, list at least one thing your husband did or said in the past week that reminded you why you love him. Everyone has to have at least one – even on a “bad week” – it doesn’t matter how big or how small! Nothing that touched your heart is insignificant!

And second, share a “Generous Wife Tip” – it can be on any subject – anything that you do or would like to do more often to make your husband feel loved and respected!

~One~

My hubby’s faith has made me smile this week. It seems like a small thing, but the strength of his faith makes mine stronger when I need it the most. His birthday was on Friday and I got made him a “love jar.” It is filled with strips of paper telling him why I love him, or why I respect him, some are just silly sayings, others are coupons on fake rose petals for foot rubs or other things, and others are just a  short little love notes. His reaction to the jar surprised me a lot. He loves it. He can not wait to make his daily pick out of the jar. He has already told me that he will be making me one. It really touched my heart the way he was so excited about a simple homemade gift.

~Two~

My Tip is tell your hubby every day not only that you love him, but you respect him and that you appreciate what he does for your family. He will appreciate this more than you know. You will be building up his spirit, his self esteem, and he will never have to question if you notice the hard work he does.

The Lord is my Strength and Song; and He has become my Salvation.

The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents and private dwellings of the [uncompromisingly] righteous:

the right hand of the Lord does valiantly and achieves strength!

Psalm 118:14-15

Happiness is the results of a radical, outrageous relationship with God. If we want to walk in victory, we have to put some time into our relationship the Lord. There is much to discover about His plan for us.

Our contentment won’t last if we are not obeying God by seeking Him with our whole heart. God wants us to really talk to Him and pay attention to His answers. Spend enough time with Him this morning to walk in victory all day.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

Psalm 90:14 NIV

This morning pray, “Lord, I am waiting for you to direct me.” While you honor the Lord by listening for His response, you may hear Him speak something specific to you right away. It may seem as though He inscribes direction in your spirit for the day. The devil may tell you that it wasn’t really God who spoke to you. Or while you are waiting to hear from God, Satan may tell you that you are wasting your time.

It is imporant to know the truth of God’s Word so that the direction God sows in your heart will not be snatched away from you through doubt. God may not lay out a blueprint for your day, but He will direct your path, if you acknowledge Him in all of your ways (see Proverbs 3:6).
