Father in heaven thank you for granting us another day of life. As we begin our day, our hearts are filled with gratitude and we praise your name, for in you oh Lord our life is secure. As we face the adversities of life, there is nothing we should be afraid, for you walk with us. As it is written, “Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.” (Isaiah‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬) We thank you oh Lord for in you our path is secure. Is in Jesus name that we pray, Amen!

Father in heaven, thank you that even though we may not be direct descendants from Abraham there is a place for all of us in your house. Therefore we rejoice because you don’t make exceptions of people but rather welcomes who ever choose to believe and accept the free gift of salvation. We echo the words of the apostle Paul when he said: “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!” And again: “Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples!” And again, Isaiah says: “There shall be a root of Jesse; And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles, In Him the Gentiles shall hope.” Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:10-13) 
Thank you Father that in Jesus we have the everlasting hope of eternal life and the assurance of salvation. Is in His name that we rejoice and pray, Amen!

Father in heaven, thank you for the friends you have provided. They are a blessing to us in the journey of life. Above all, thank you that you also call us your friend regardless of our short comings. Please help us to become more like Jesus. May we walk humbly and do only what is right before your eyes as we patiently wait for the return of our Savior, your Son, in whom we pray, Amen!

I’ve had some serious reflection lately on some of the setbacks in my past. A lot of which I still bear a lot of shame, insecurity. From personal experience, confronting your setbacks sooner rather than later will greatly benefit your wellbeing and confidence. Yet, there are still some that linger in my mind that hinder me from those benefits. Thus, I ask God to cleanse my mind of my mistakes; which have already been taken to trial with Jesus on the cross. Just as Jesus moved forward with His love and peace, so will I...

Prayer for today:

Father in heaven, as we face our trials and tribulations we often find ourselves fighting with insufficient faith. Today we ask that you help us to follow through with our commitment of putting you first in our lives. It is our hearts desire to read more of your word and be connected throughout the day in prayer so that our faith would become stronger. In doing so the fruits of the Spirit would be evident in our lives and we know that our actions would clearly manifest your love, mercy and grace by the compassion and understanding towards others. In Jesus name we pray, Amen! —- ___

🤔 "But what about ..." What about it? 
If that's not for you, God's got something better!
.
Never read this before, but so much goodness right here!
.
What got my heart was the fact that this king, Amaziah, (thinking it was the right thing to do) paid a hefty amount of money to assemble thousands of men to prepare for battle. But God sent a messenger to him telling the king that they would not win this one, simply due to the fact that the people (the Israelites) were worshipping other gods.
.
And when he was discouraged about all the money he spent to hire the men, he was encouraged by the man of God, who reminded him that God could give him MUCH MORE than what he spent! #blessings
.
This man, Amaziah, served God. Was he perfect? No, but God had grace on him and on his life decisions when he believed to be doing the right thing. .
.
Yall ... the graaaaace though - it's increbile. 😍 But it's also to be respected, not to be taken advantage of. Amaziah was victorious in the battle when he LISTENED to God's counsel and retrieved waaay more than what he spent, but he also let it get to his head and started worshipping the gods of the city, Edom, that God helped him to attack. So things obviously went down hill for him unfortunately because he took His eyes off the LORD who brought him great success. .
.
Moral of the story ... God's GRACE - RESPECT IT! 😌
(Reading in 2 Chronicles 25 - New International Version)

Father in heaven, like King David we also place our trust in you. Knowing that as we face our trials and tribulations our help will come from you. We trust that if you are powerful enough to control the universe, you are definitely powerful enough to control and intervene in our lives.  As it is written in  Psalms‬ ‭121:1-3‬, in the midst of our adversities we will say with confident “I will lift up my eyes to the hill. From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.” Thank you Lord for allowing us to have this assurance that you will never leave us nor forsake us. In Jesus name we pray and thank you, Amen! ‭‭‭____

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” - Matthew‬ ‭7:7-12‬ ‭NKJV

Like Abraham, who believed the improbability of becoming a father in his old age, like Elijah who believed in the power of the supernatural armies of God surrounding him, like the disciples caught in a raging storm, we’re asked to believe; in the ultimate impossibility - the resurrection of a man from the dead!
.
This same risen Jesus, who had power over the winds and waves in his earthly life, has been given power over all things - all authority in heaven and on earth!
.
Sometimes our hearts struggle to take this leap of faith but Jesus’ words gently remind us “Don’t be afraid, just believe.”
.
With trembling hearts we reply, “Lord, we believe! Help us in our unbelief!”

When we look to God, everything changes.
•
Brokenness becomes healed. Suffering becomes understanding. Weakness becomes strength.
•
And in the uncertainty, there is peace.
•
God isn't asking us to strive to be perfect. He's asking us to look beyond the waves, above to His grace.
•
He's reaching down to us, desiring to restore and heal all our broken parts. Desiring to bless us in ways we could never imagine. Desiring to fill us so we're no longer empty and hurting. Desiring to give us hope and work all things together for our good.
•
Even the things we don't understand.
•
Do we trust Him? Will we trust Him?
•
He calmed the winds and waves, He calmed the storm at sea. Will we trust Him to calm the storms in our hearts?
•
We need only look up to Him. He's reaching down to us. Willing and waiting, whenever we're ready.
•

Just read a great piece from ihopkc on the importance of surrender and how Jesus prayed “O My Father, If it is possible let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless not as I will but as You will” in Matthew 26:39. Then I popped on YouVersion and saw this verse which made me think about how Jesus knew God had the power to stop Jesus from suffering and yet Jesus accepted that God’s will might mean Him suffering - at least for a time. How incredible that Jesus accepted the crucifixion as God’s will even though He knew firsthand that God the Father had the power to stop Jesus dying on a cross. That’s trust and an aspect that’s often overlooked when talking about why Jesus died. Yes, because He loves us but also because He trusts the Father & chose the Father’s will over His own. #Challenged #BlownAway #JesusTrusts #ihopkc #YouVersion #BibleThoughts

It’s obvious, of course, that he didn’t go to all this trouble for angels. It was for people like us...That’s why he had to enter into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people’s sins, he would have experienced it all himself - all the pain, all the testing - and would be able to help where help was needed. - Heb 2:16-18 (msg)

It’s obvious, of course, that he didn’t go to all this trouble for angels. It was for people like us...That’s why he had to enter into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people’s sins, he would have experienced it all himself - all the pain, all the testing - and would be able to help where help was needed. - Heb 2:16-18 (msg) . . . #jesus  #jesuschrist  #turningthetideofourheart  #thehumanheart  #humanlife  #everyexperience  #temptation  #temptationofjesus  #sundayworship  #sundayworshipservice  #church  #churchlife  #christian  #christians  #christianlife  #bible  #biblethoughts  #bibleinspo  #riverdove  #riverdovecommunity  #lismore  #lismorensw  #northernrivers  #northernriversnsw 
How can the same God claim to forgive sin, but also “by no means clear the guilty”?
.
I believe at some point in time, God had to ask Himself that exact question. (Does God actually do that?) Well, He might not have actually done that, but just go with it for a second.
.
God, knowing all things, knowing that when He created mankind we would sin, knowing that because He is 100% just and 100% holy could not overlook sin and just “clear the guilty” because a price would have to be paid, but also loving His people in such deeps ways we could never even understand - He was in a predicament.
.
What was He going to do? How was He going to be just, be holy, but also be love? How was He going to forgive AND have the price be paid?
.
So God came up with this plan. A plan that is absurd. A plan that is outrageous. A plan that’s smothered with grace.
.
If a price had to be paid, He would pay it for them by sending His perfect son to die in the imperfect‘s place. He would change the guilty to not guilty by covering them in the blood of Christ.
.
His holy wrath would be satisfied. His justice, served. The price, paid.
.
Only a God so big and so grand could come up with this perfect plan - a plan that would satisfy all of His attributes. A plan that would allow Him to forgive while still being just, love while still being holy.
.
We ought to be quite grateful, don’t you think?

Part of God's faithfulness to us is that He is the vine and we are the branches.
•
As we grow in Him, there is a natural process where we become less and He becomes more.
•
Especially when it comes time for pruning.
•
It is the branch that is cut back, not the vine. But this is how we bear good fruit. His power never changes.
•
And as the external things are cut away, we grow stronger in Him.
•
When we set our roots in Him, we cannot be shaken. We cannot be moved.
•
"As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him." ~ Psalm 18:30

Nothing can separate you from My Love. Let this divine assurance trickle through your mind and into your heart and soul. Whenever you start to feel fearful or anxious, repeat this unconditional promise: “Nothing can separate me from Your Love, Jesus.” #Amen #BibleThoughts

Today is the perfect time to start your day with the One who made your day. "Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days." Psalm 90:14.

Belief in God alters our language and love of God alters our daily relationships. People who were strangers become family and we learn to love more deeply, knitting our belief and behaviour together, learning to love others in the way God has loved us.
.
“A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself — to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.” - Leo F. Buscaglia

We all have a centre - the source from which our attitudes and behaviours flow. The personal power that comes from principle-centered living is the power of a self-aware, knowledgeable, proactive individual, unrestricted by the attitudes, behaviours and actions of others or by many of the circumstances and environmental influences that limit other people. By centering our lives on timeless, unchanging principles, we create a fundamental paradigm of effective living. - Stephen Covey

I have been church hopping lately and was attending a service in Huntington Beach California this past weekend and this was the closing verse. I have been chewing on it the last couple days. Yet, honestly not as much as I should, due to the fact that I’m living in it rather than processing it. I feel like I really received this wrong. “What do you mean, don’t follow your heart?! Doesn’t Jesus say He gives us the desires of our hearts. Andddd don’t we give Jesus our hearts and follow Jesus, so technically that is following our heart.” Clearly I am still struggling with this. But I find it interesting how I have handled the last 48 hours. I have followed my heart. I have been honest in some situations and held back in others. I believe temptation is living in my heart AND I have given my heart to Jesus. I think, and I use the world ‘think’ intentionally, because it’s an opinion that is subject to change, but I think that our heart can desire many things and the Lord can see what things are going to keep us on our path. I like to think He provides what the desires of Him are. I think desires not of Him can live in our hearts as well. So how we navigate these desires is to trust Him. Trust your heart and allow your actions to be parallel of that trust in Him. In this season I am struggling to trust myself, which is hard. I am in a season where I do not have faith in my response to situations correctly. My desires are getting intertwined. Yet I have a theory for this as well. I believe you can begin to distinguish difference between desires, it simply takes discipline and humbling yourself. I also believe that the desires of your heart that are not of Him, when experienced, can be beautiful lessons, but I am experiencing getting what I want and then seeing “ohhh now I see how that may not be of the Lord and how it may not further me on my life long dream or deepest heart’s desires.” Now that is an interesting feeling.

Psalm 34:8 "Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him." Our experience of something is heightened by the measure of knowledge associated with what we experience. A sports match is more exciting to watch when we know the rules of play. The theatre is more captivating when we're informed about the nuances of the dialogue. Music becomes more impactful when the sweep of the notes collides with lyrics that we actually grasp. The power of our experience of Christ correlates to the power of our understanding about who He actually is. We will "see" (experience) His character to the depth that we've bitten into His Word to taste it. Throw out the rotten lies we're fed that biblical depth is too hard, just for scholars, too time consuming. Christ stepped into humanity centuries ago but wants to step into your circumstances now with His truth. We consume food to survive, but we consume His Word to really live. Biblical depth is essential, doable, and awesome. It's for *you* as you are. Rich spiritual fruit lays beyond instagram for you to taste and really see the depth of His goodness.

The definition of boldness is the quality of having a strong, vivid, or clear appearance. It can be hard to be clear with our struggles and failures, but God sent Jesus to overcome them instead. So I encourage you to walk with a “clear appearance” of your faith this week. Trust the One who is in complete control. .

“....Everything, everything is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.. “ Ecclesiastes 2: 10-11. *
If we aren’t chasing God, we’re merely chasing the wind which will only leave us feeling void and empty. The emptiness and worthlessness of the things of this life are often amplified when man becomes detached from God, no worldly thing can truly satisfy you. So seek Him with all your heart. Chase him with all your being! ❤️😊 #godchasers #bible #biblethoughts #1 #quiettime

"...always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." - 2 Timothy 3:6-7
•
This morning, as I was reading the Bible, this verse struck me.
•
Far too often I've found myself on the hamster wheel of striving for more, yet never arriving.
•
God has bigger plans for us.
•
Without God's hand in it, no plans will ever be established. We can't do it in our own power. I don't want to be weak, and yet, His strength is made perfect in my weakness.
•
"Unless the LORD builds a house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain." - Psalm 127:1
•
Our lives are not our own. Unless our lives point to Him, nothing else matters.
•
I'm realizing my own smallness, that even the best of us, at best end up as myths or legends. Countless lives and moments are forgotten.
•
I want my life to build what matters.
•
"Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire." - 1 Corinthians 3:12-15
•
Are we investing in things that will last, or things that vanish the moment we turn away?
•
"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen." - Ephesians 3:20-21

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119:105. His Word not only lights the path I should take, but it guides me personally. His Word guides the way when we're too blind to see it, and guides my hand in times when I can't feel it. His Word goes further than challenging the darkness within and around us, it dispels it. Light offends darkness, calls it an enemy, pierces it, fights it, resolves it. Its mere presence not only displays the opposite of what darkness is, but it shows us where to step in spite of it. The Word of God is light, is Christ, is personal, is applicable. God's Word is Him reaching down from heaven to guide our way, guide our steps, and show us the bright beauty of the One who guides us.

Give yourself permission today to recognise the many ways in which you can make positive changes in your life. Change requires emotional courage but it’s well worth the risk. Remind yourself, too, that there may be things you have no control over and learn to be at peace with what you cannot change.

Often times we get caught in the future and “what if’s?” We need to focus on today and today only, for tomorrow will worry about it’s self. Trust in the Lord and rely on his promises. .

Salmo 139:17 😍🤗👧🏻 #biblethoughts #salmos #recklesslove
OUR SAVIOR: THE ULTIMATE REFUGEE
▪️
The incarnate Christ is the supreme example of an exile. Imagine Jesus, eternal God, infinite in His being, coming to live in the finite, impoverished frailty of human flesh. Amazing. Yet He did this because of His great love for us, who were strangers to heaven. Now Christ calls on us to carry on the work He initiated. We must present the Savior to everyone who is destitute and needy (that’s all of us!), but especially to the refugee. We are called to offer them the Bread of life (and water), the Savior (and safety).
▪️
Read
Philippians 2:5-11
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death on a cross. Therefore God has exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
▪️
Pray
🙏Loving Savior, meet each refugee at his or her point of need
🙏Lord, help me to meet refugees’ physical and spiritual needs
▪️
Topic - Salvation
Many refugees come from non-Christian majority nations. Pray that Christians in host countries will be ready to share the gospel, and that the hearts of the displaced will be open to the hope of Jesus.
▪️
Conflict Area - Yemen
❗️Violence, disease, and intense poverty from civil war since 2015

Therefore God has exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
▪️
Pray
🙏Loving Savior, meet each refugee at his or her point of need
🙏Lord, help me to meet refugees’ physical and spiritual needs
▪️
Topic - Salvation
Many refugees come from non-Christian majority nations. Pray that Christians in host countries will be ready to share the gospel, and that the hearts of the displaced will be open to the hope of Jesus.

OUR SAVIOR: THE ULTIMATE REFUGEE ▪️ The incarnate Christ is the supreme example of an exile. Imagine Jesus, eternal God, infinite in His being, coming to live in the finite, impoverished frailty of human flesh. Amazing. Yet He did this because of His great love for us, who were strangers to heaven. Now Christ calls on us to carry on the work He initiated. We must present the Savior to everyone who is destitute and needy (that’s all of us!), but especially to the refugee. We are called to offer them the Bread of life (and water), the Savior (and safety). ▪️ Read Philippians 2:5-11 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

ISRAEL: GOD’S CHOSEN REFUGEES
•
In many parts of the Old Testament, God’s people receive direct commands to not mistreat the “sojourner.” God reminds His people that they too were once wanderers seeking refuge in unknown lands. He reminds them of the mercy He showed them and asks them to do the same for those around them. Through the nation of Israel, we see God’s heart for those who are forced or displaced into unfamiliar lands.
•
Read
Exodus 22:21, 23:9
Do not mistreat or oppress a foreigner, for you were foreigners in Egypt.
Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.
•
Pray
🙏Lord, watch over refugees in their travels and trials
🙏Help me treat refugees with the same kindness you have shown me
•
Topic - Food Security
Millions die each year from diseases brought on in part by malnutrition. Pray that refugees will receive sufficiently nutritious food supplies.
•
Conflict Area - Nigeria
❗️Internal insurgency led by Boko Haram since 2009
❗️1.7 million people internally displaced, more than 203,000 refugees
🙏Pray for psychological, emotional, and spiritual healing for those affected

THE CHURCH: REFUGEES IN EXILE
•
It is easy to become comfortable in this world — especially for those of us who live in industrialized, developed countries. Yet the scriptures clearly teach that Christians do not really belong here. Our citizenship is in heaven, and we are ourselves exiles in a foreign land. Why then are we here? The Heavenly Father wants His children here as alien ambassadors, bringing the hope and light of the gospel to a hurting world. So as we travel through this foreign land, it is incumbent upon us to help other travelers in life’s journey — especially the needy and suffering.
•
Read
1 Peter 1:17
Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear
•
Pray
🙏Father, send workers among refugees with the hope of your gospel
🙏May I see myself as an exile, helping fellow travelers
•
Topic - Family
When people flee their homes, they lose contact with loved ones. Pray that families and friends will be reunited.
•
Conflict Area - Burundi
❗️Internal violence from political unrest, food insecurity, disease, and economic decline since 2015
❗️420,000 Burundians have fled to other countries
🙏Pray that God will bring peace and stability to Burundi

THE PSALMS: SONGS OF THE REFUGEE
•
When you think of refugees, David might not immediately come to mind. But many of the Psalms were penned by David when he was living in exile as a displaced person, fleeing from Saul. When you read these Psalms, you hear the cries of a refugee’s heart — someone forced from his home and living in the wilderness or a foreign land just to survive. Let us use these Psalms to give us a glimpse into the suffering of displaced persons and feel the anguish of their plight.
•
Read
Psalm 31:1-3, 9-15
In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
Turn your ear to me,
come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress,
for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
•
Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;
my eyes grow weak with sorrow,
my soul and body with grief.
Because of all my enemies,
I am the utter contempt of my neighbors
and an object of dread to my closest friends—
those who see me on the street flee from me.
I am forgotten as though I were dead;
I have become like broken pottery.
For I hear many whispering,
“Terror on every side!”
They conspire against me
and plot to take my life.
But I trust in you, Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
My times are in your hands;
deliver me from the hands of my enemies,
from those who pursue me.
•
Pray
🙏God, provide places of safety and help for those who are
displaced
🙏Lord, make my heart tender, to hurt with the hurting
•
Topic – Shelter
Finding consistent, reliable shelter is vital for both survival and stability. Pray that God will provide a place the displaced can truly call home.
•
Conflict Area - Iraq
❗️Civil war and terrorist activity since 2014
❗️More than 260,000 refugees and 3 million internally displaced
🙏Pray for provision for the millions who have been forced from their homes

The bible. The Word of God. Are those heavy-sounding words? Perhaps heavy with rules, history and text complexity meant for those who are into that sort of thing. Truth? If you move yourself to read it you'll only discover that it's no easy bathroom reader. Instead, it's one of the most intense reads on the market. Its message reveals the crushing truth of who we are as sinners set against a holy God. Yet it also remains the global best seller for one reason...the stab of conviction that slices into our souls runs alongside a balm of freedom that resurrects us from the fatal wound. The guilt-chains release and through Christ we breathe pure, spiritual oxygen at last. What's dead and dry sprouts new life. What's desperate finds hope. What's lonely joins hands with resurrected community. You see, the measure of our delight correlates to the measure of our understanding about the weight that's been removed. Perhaps today we can brew a tea and sit with the One who freed us for a little while longer. Not because He's a heavy burden, but because He's our delight.

JESUS: THE REFUGEE
We probably don’t think of our Savior as being a refugee, but He was. As Herod set out to kill the newborn Messiah, Jesus was taken by His parents into exile. We don’t know how long the Holy Family lived in Egypt, but the fact is they were away from their home, fearing for their lives. Recognizing this reality, don’t you think that Christ feels a special empathy for refugees and displaced persons? Indeed, He cares for them with an infinite care. Shouldn’t we also care?
•
Read 
Matthew 2:13-18
When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt,15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.” When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”
•
Pray
🙏Jesus, be present with all refugees, especially children
🙏May I be the hands and feet of Christ to care for refugees
•
Topic - Education
Over half of refugee children do not attend school. Pray that refugees will gain greater access to educational opportunities.
•
Conflict Area - South Sudan
❗️Civil war between government and internal opposition forces since 2013
❗️The world’s fastest growing source of refugees and displaced people
🙏Pray that peace will return to this economically struggling nation

Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” • Pray 🙏Jesus, be present with all refugees, especially children 🙏May I be the hands and feet of Christ to care for refugees • Topic - Education Over half of refugee children do not attend school.

JESUS: THE REFUGEE
We probably don’t think of our Savior as being a refugee, but He was. As Herod set out to kill the newborn Messiah, Jesus was taken by His parents into exile. We don’t know how long the Holy Family lived in Egypt, but the fact is they were away from their home, fearing for their lives. Recognizing this reality, don’t you think that Christ feels a special empathy for refugees and displaced persons? Indeed, He cares for them with an infinite care. Shouldn’t we also care?

Read 
Matthew 2:13-18
When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt,15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.” When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”

Sweet Riley lets J do anything he wants—including big kisses and wrapping him in blankets. I’m convinced we have one of the best pups in the world. I prayed for him and God gifted us exactly what I prayed for. If he hears and cares for the little things, how much more will he gift and bless with the big things? I read in Matthew this morning that with man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Don’t ever think God can’t handle what you or even our country, our WORLD is going through. Pray unceasingly. Listen to His voice. Follow him like a child would. .

REFUGEES: LOVED BY GOD

Throughout the Old and New Testaments, God repeatedly expresses His love and compassion for the refugee (and for the victimized or impoverished generally). God’s love for humanity extends across and beyond all racial, ethnic, and geographic divides. He implores and commands His church to provide for those who are suffering and in need. Without homes, property, support networks, and security, the displaced are very often the absolute “least of these.”
•
Read 
Deuteronomy 10:17-19
"For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt."
•
Pray
🙏 Divine Physician, heal the wounded bodies and hearts of refugees
🙏 Lord, help me to see refugees through Your eyes of compassion
•

Desperate, stateless, and vulnerable, displaced women and children face heightened probability of exploitation, abuse and modern slavery. Pray that God will protect women and children from oppression and trafficking.

As strange as it may seem, and as much as I loooove to have things all under my control (#controlfreak!), sometimes when things go out of my control is when I feel the most peace. I guess that is because I believe in a higher power Who loves me and is ultimately in control of everything. When something is 100% out of my control, I feel at rest. I don't have to worry about it. It isn't on me. I have nothing to shoulder. Like when I am flying in an airplane. I find it really relaxing! If that's how I go, oh well! What could I do? Flap my arms really hard? 😂 It's easy because I don't have a say. Here's the funny part: it was never up to me, anyway! Why do we take on the weight of the world? One word: fear. We fear what we can't control. What if we could let go of our fear, like those moments where we believe it isn't all up to us? You can! I use Prov. 3:5-7 to remind me, and I always think about flying. ✈

Here is something to think about (Proverbs 3:13-18)

There are profits in acquiring divine wisdom: length of days, riches (often not monetary), honor, pleasantness of life, peace and happiness.... How do we acquire divine wisdom?
What is divine wisdom compared to the wisdom of the world?
What should be my first goal in life?
