Pray

"And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD." I Samuel 1:15 

Hannah was a woman who was determined to get something from God.  She knew that if she really wanted it she had to go to God in prayer, and she was not ashamed to go to God in prayer.  She went to the altar alone to pray and in the midst of her prayer Eli the priest saw her and thought she was drunk because her mouth was moving but he could not hear any of the words of her prayers to God.

I Love The Lord

“I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy.” Psalm 116:1 (ESV)

When we think about how good The Lord has been to us, and how He has watched over us with loving kindness, it is evidence to us how much The Lord loves and cares about us.  The Lord does not need to tell us that He loves us because every day He shows His amazing love for us, by pouring into our lives His mercy and grace.

Praise The Lord

“Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.” Psalm 113:1

We each have something to praise The Lord for.  There may be times when we do not realize that we have something to praise The Lord for because of the things that we are facing in our lives, but if we can look past the clouds of the situation we are in, we should quickly realize that we have so many reasons to praise The Lord.  Each day we should start our day with thanksgiving and praise to The Lord our God for all of the great and wonderful things that He had done and is doing in our lives.

Be Changed

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Romans 12:2

All of us are creatures of habit, because there are some things that we do consistently.  There is usually no variation in the way that we do some things.  We travel to work the same way, at the same time almost every day.  When something comes and throws off our routine, that forces us to make adjustments to our plans that can sometimes make us feel uncomfortable.

Trouble Don’t Last Always

“For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (ESV)

Those of us who grew up or spent anytime in Church has heard the phrase, “trouble don’t last always.”  While it may seem like that it is a good phrase and one that would encourage a person going through some trouble, however for the one going through the trouble it feels like trouble does last always.  Going through spiritual and emotional storms can feel like an eternity and the end of the storm does not seem to be near.

Feeding From The Hand Of God

“When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.” Psalm 104:28 (ESV)

The Lord is so incredibly good to us.  He blesses us in ways that we could never have imagined.  There is not a day that goes by that we do not experience the blessings of God flowing in our lives.  There are days however that we may not realize that we are basking in His blessings, and will begin to complain about the things we may not have instead of being thankful for the things that God has blessed us with.

Be Still

“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!” Psalm 37:7 (ESV)

Trusting in The Lord is a faith walk that will require us to trust The Lord every step of the way.  When we look around and see people who do not serve The Lord getting ahead, and seeing those who put The Lord on a shelf and take Him down when they need Him, seemingly prospering at every hand, it becomes difficult to keep the faith.

The Lord Is

"But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head." Psalm 3:3 

When we know that rain is in the forecast we try to make sure we have an umbrella with us to keep us dry from the elements.  When we know the temperature is going to drop we make sure we have the proper attire to keep us warm from the cold.  When we know that certain things are going to happen we can prepare ourselves for whatever it is.  Just as the umbrella keeps us dry and protects us from the rain, we have The Lord who is with us and protects and shields us from the things that may try to come our way.

Don’t Worry

“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” Matthew 6:30

For all of our lives The Lord has taken care of us, and has been there for us when we realized it and even in those times when we have not realized it.  There has not been one need that we have had that The Lord has not provided for.  He has been our friend and confidant when we needed Him t, and doors have been opened for us that we know that The Lord was the one who opened that door.
