Praise the Lord for His amazing love and compassion for all mankind. I ask for your prayers as I will be stepping up in a hugely bold way from now until the end of the year to do God’s work. I come to you with a Special Prayer Request for my immediate family who are all ill right now(wife Carol, son Ross and daughter in love Veronica)! Thank You in advance!

Today’s Prayer
(make this your prayer)

Good morning, Lord! Thank You for Your Word that tells me You will keep me in perfect peace, when my mind is focused on you, because I trust in You. Yes, I will trust in You forever, for in Yahweh, the LORD, is everlasting strength (based on Isaiah 26:3-4). Your peace truly passes understanding, for in the midst of turmoil, sickness, sorrow, confusion, happiness, delight–whatever state–I have peace within. And I know that whatever the future holds, it includes You! I praise You Almighty One, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. In Jesus’ name I lift You up, amen.

Let’s eat.

The Promise Of Restoration

Jeremiah (32:36-44)

36. Now therefore the Lord God of Israel says concerning this city that it will fall to the king of Babylon through warfare, famine and disease,

37. but I will bring my people back again from all the countries where in my fury I will scatter them. I will bring them back to this very city, and make them live in peace and safety.

38. And they shall be my people and I will be their God.

39. And I will give them one heart and mind to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants.

40. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, promising never again to desert them, but only to do them good. I will put a desire into their hearts to worship me, and they shall never leave me.

41. I will rejoice to do them good and will replant them in this land, with great joy.

42. Just as I have sent all these terrors and evils upon them, so will I do all the good I have promised them.

43. Fields will again be bought and sold in this land, now ravaged by the Babylonians, where men and animals alike have disappeared.

44. Yes, fields shall once again be bought and sold–deeds signed and sealed and witnessed–in the country of Benjamin and here in Jerusalem, in the cities of Judah and in the hill country, in the Philistine plain and in the Negeb too, for some day I will restore prosperity to them.


Quote of the Day

Faith is rest, not toil. It is the giving up all the former weary efforts to do or feel something good, in order to induce God to love and pardon; and the calm reception of the truth so long rejected, that God is not waiting for any such inducements, but loves and pardons of His own goodwill, and is showing that goodwill to any sinner who will come to Him on such a footing, casting away his own poor performances or goodnesses, and relying implicitly upon the free love of Him who so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. ~Horatius Bonar~
