Divine Openings 09-22-19

Good day everyone. After yesterdays message went out a number of people contacted me to let me know that they needed that message. I just want you all to know that I needed that message too. Today we are going to continue on the journey. Stay blessed.

Today’s Prayer

Father, as we pray for Your guidance for our nation in these critical times, give us the wisdom to measure our decisions by Your yardstick. If we are truthful with ourselves, we will realize that You measure a man or a woman by his or her character. You consider their daily actions and dealings, how they live their lives, how they treat their families and friends; not by their words and promises, but by whether they live by our nation’s laws, and whether their word is their bond. It is true that You alone are the final judge of one’s heart, one’s motives, and one’s life, but You have called each of us as citizens to decide, not those who are qualified to go to heaven, but rather those who are worthy to hold the high offices of our nation. Every day we are expected to make these kinds of judgments, and to decide how our own actions and those of others, the lives we live, and the examples that we set at work and at home will help or hinder our nation, and determine our children’s inheritance. Can we demand less of our leaders and ourselves? Help us, we pray, for it is our call. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

Three Divine Openings

Opened Heart

Acts 16:13-15

On the Sabbath we went a little way outside the city to a riverbank, where we thought people would be meeting for prayer, and we sat down to speak with some women who had gathered there. One of them was Lydia from Thyatira, a merchant of expensive purple cloth, who worshiped God. As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart, and she accepted what Paul was saying. She was baptized along with other members of her household, and she asked us to be her guests. “If you agree that I am a true believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my home.” And she urged us until we agreed.

To receive Christ, Opened Scriptures

Luke 24:28-34

By this time they were nearing Emmaus and the end of their journey. Jesus acted as if he were going on, but they begged him, “Stay the night with us, since it is getting late.” So he went home with them. As they sat down to eat, he took the bread and blessed it. Then he broke it and gave it to them. Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared! They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?” And within the hour they were on their way back to Jerusalem. There they found the eleven disciples and the others who had

Reveal Christ, Opened Understanding

Luke 24:44-49

Then he said,“When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.”Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. And he said,“Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day.It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’You are witnesses of all these things.“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”

Quote of the Day

As Christians, we ought to be using records to reach people with Jesus; instead, we use Jesus to sell records to Christians.
