1 Faith 052113

Good morning and praise the Lord for another day and another chance to get this thing we call life going in the right direction. Today starts a three part meal that will bless us all as we consume it.

Today’s Prayer

Oh, how I praise You this morning Lord! You heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. You count the number of the stars and call them all by name. You are great Lord, and mighty in power. Your understanding is infinite. You lift up the humble, and cast the wicked down to the ground. I praise You Lord, You who covers the heavens with clouds and prepares rain for the earth; You who makes grass to grow on mountains and gives food the beasts of the earth. Praise You Lord, the One whom we trust to heal our hurts and bind up our wounds…and provide our needs. Bless You, in JESUS’ name. Amen.

Let’s eat.

Growing Faith in GOD’s Ability

“With God nothing is impossible”

Luke 1:26-38

26. The following month God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee,
27. to a virgin, Mary, engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David.
28. Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Congratulations, favored lady! The Lord is with you!”
29. Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean.
30. “Don’t be frightened, Mary,” the angel told her, “for God has decided to wonderfully bless you!
31. Very soon now, you will become pregnant and have a baby boy, and you are to name him `Jesus.’
32. He shall be very great and shall be called the Son of God. And the Lord God shall give him the throne of his ancestor David.
33. And he shall reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom shall never end!”
34. Mary asked the angel, “But how can I have a baby? I am a virgin.”
35. The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit shall come upon you, and the power of God shall overshadow you; so the baby born to you will be utterly holy–the Son of God.
36. Furthermore, six months ago your Aunt Elizabeth–`the barren one,’ they called her–became pregnant in her old age!
37. For every promise from God shall surely come true.”
38. Mary said, “I am the Lord’s servant, and I am willing to do whatever he wants. May everything you said come true.” And then the angel disappeared.

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

Genesis 18:1-14

1. The Lord appeared again to Abraham while he was living in the oak grove at Mamre. This is the way it happened: One hot summer afternoon as he was sitting in the opening of his tent,
2. he suddenly noticed three men coming toward him. He sprang up and ran to meet them and welcomed them.
3. “Sirs,” he said, “please don’t go any further. Stop awhile and rest here in the shade of this tree while I get water to refresh your feet,
5. and a bite to eat to strengthen you. Do stay awhile before continuing your journey.”“All right,” they said, “do as you have said.”
6. Then Abraham ran back to the tent and said to Sarah, “Quick! Mix up some pancakes! Use your best flour, and make enough for the three of them!”
7. Then he ran out to the herd and selected a fat calf and told a servant to hurry and butcher it.
8. Soon, taking them cheese and milk and the roast veal, he set it before the men and stood beneath the trees beside them as they ate.
9. “Where is Sarah, your wife?” they asked him.“In the tent,” Abraham replied.
10. Then the Lord said, “Next year I will give you and Sarah a son!” (Sarah was listening from the tent door behind him.)
11. Now Abraham and Sarah were both very old, and Sarah was long since past the time when she could have a baby.
12. So Sarah laughed silently. “A woman my age have a baby?” she scoffed to herself. “And with a husband as old as mine?”
13. Then God said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she say `Can an old woman like me have a baby?’
14. Is anything too hard for God? Next year, just as I told you, I will certainly see to it that Sarah has a son.”

“I know that Thou canst do everything”

Job 42

1. Then Job answered the Lord, and said,
2. I know that thou canst do everything, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.
3. Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
4. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
5. I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
6. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
7. And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words unto Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
8. Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.
9. So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the Lord commanded them: the Lord also accepted Job.
10. And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11. Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.
12. So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
13. He had also seven sons and three daughters.
14. And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.
15. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
16. After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.
17. So Job died, being old and full of days.

The beautiful thing about this adventure called faith is that we can count on Him never to lead us astray.
