The Hands of Jesus 10-05-18

Good morning everyone. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. I woke up this morning with pain in my right hand and began to think of the things I would be hindered in doing if the pain didn’t go away. I began to pray for the pain and instantly was reminded of the hands of Jesus and the pain in my hand became nothing. Let today’s message be a blessing to you.

Today’s Prayer

(This is personal)

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for blessings, and You send me opportunities! I ask for help, and You send a friend who “just happened to drop by!” In so many ways, Lord, You are there for me, sometimes before I realize that I am in over my head and need Your guidance! In big or little things, You are there. Help me to see these encounters as evidence of Your presence, Your love, and Your concern, and help me to remember always to give You thanks. More and more I realize that there is no such thing as luck or coincidence; for a believing Christian, it’s always Your shepherding presence. My life is so much richer, happier, and more peaceful, since I have recognized Jesus as my daily companion and friend! I want to share the “good news,” so that others may know Him too. Help us all to continue to grow in our faith, and to learn to praise You in all things. In Jesus’ holy name I pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Hands of Christ

Pierced for our sin

Psalms 22:11-16

Do not stay so far from me, for trouble is near, and no one else can help me. My enemies surround me like a herd of bulls; fierce bulls of Bashan have hemmed me in! Like lions they open their jaws against me, roaring and tearing into their prey. My life is poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax, melting within me. My strength has dried up like sun baked clay. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You have laid me in the dust and left me for dead. My enemies surround me like a pack of dogs; an evil gang closes in on me. They have pierced my hands and feet.

The Dying One Shown for our peace

John 20:20

That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said. As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord!

The Risen One uplifted for blessing

Luke 24:50-53

Then Jesus led them to Bethany, and lifting his hands to heaven, he blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up to heaven. So they worshiped him and then returned to Jerusalem filled with great joy. And they spent all of their time in the Temple, praising God.

Ascending One Opened for our supply

Psalms 145:8-16

The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation. All of your works will thank you, Lord, and your faithful followers will praise you. They will speak of the glory of your kingdom; they will give examples of your power. They will tell about your mighty deeds and about the majesty and glory of your reign. For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does. The Lord helps the fallen and lifts those bent beneath their loads. The eyes of all look to you in hope; you give them their food as they need it. When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.

Quote of the Day

He that is down needs fear no fall. He that is low, no pride; He that is humble, ever shall have God to be his Guide.
