    God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him. John Wesley

    America, You Exist by My Power by Max Lucado   Every national privilege can be traced back to the hand of God. If we have liberty, we can thank the One who came to “proclaim liberty to the captives… to set at liberty those who are oppressed” (Luke 4:18 NKJV). If we enjoy a robust economy or a high tide of justice, we don’t limit our thanks to senators or the Supreme Court; we thank God.   Tally this up. God makes the boundaries. He determines the leaders. He dispenses the blessings. And America exists by the power of God. Can we afford to forget this—can we afford to sever this single, silver strand that supports the whole framework of our republic?   Only at terrible risk.   “If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods, worshiping and bowing down to them, you will certainly be destroyed” (Deut. 8:19, NLT).   “America,” God says, “you exist by My power.” That’s the first reminder. But God doesn’t stop there. A second reminder commands our attention.   America, you exist for My glory.   Recall what God said through the prophet, “I will demonstrate my glory among the nations” (Ezekiel 39:21, NLT).   God does not need the United States in order to advance His cause. He lobbies no country and depends on no government. “No, for all the nations of the world are nothing in comparison with him. They are but a drop in the bucket, dust on the scales. He picks up the islands as though they had no weight at all. The nations of the world are as nothing to him. In his eyes, they are less than nothing—mere emptiness and froth” (Isaiah 40:15, 17 NLT).   Suppose—just suppose—God’s glory became America’s prayer and priority: “Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory” (Psalm 115:1). Suppose our elected officials daily asked. How can we honor God in our decisions? How can this school introduce students to God? How can this army promote the name of God?   Remember, who manages the hearts of rulers? Who prompts the decisions of kings? God does. God can change a nation.   For that reason, we must pray—pray with all our hearts—that America would turn back to God.   “Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake” (Psalm 79:9).   Copyright Max Lucado Turn, Multnomah Publishers, Inc. 2005

    Daily Scripture & Reflection But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 (KJV)   A Time to Think A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society. —Reverend Billy Graham   A Time to Act Ask that our Heavenly Father bless all earthly fathers today and every day.   A Time to Pray We’re honoring fathers everywhere today, Lord, and especially we honor You, the Father of us all.

The Eyes of Joshua & Caleb
Thursday, January 14, 2021
Joshua and Caleb never pretended that there weren't giants in the land. They knew full well what they were up against. In fact, Joshua would become the general to defeat those giants. Then what was it that separated Joshua and Caleb from the other ten spies who also saw the giants but brought back a bad report to the Israelites? The difference was that though Joshua and Caleb saw the giants - they didn't dwell on them. They didn't focus on them. Instead they focused on the blessings, the promise, the faithfulness, and the power of God. And they were the ones who entered and apprehended all that God had promised. So with you, it's not that you don't or wont' have problems in your life. You will. It's part of life. The key is - don't focus on them - don't dwell on them. They're only giants. They're there in your life to manifest the power, the victory, the faithfulness, and the triumph of God. They're only giants. Set your focus instead on the giant power, the giant love, and the giant faithfulness of your God and you too will enter the land of blessing God has promised you.
