Bible Passage(s): 1 Corinthians 13
Memory Verse: ''Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Lord I lift your name on high
Lord I love to sing your praises
I'm so glad you are in my life
I'm so glad you came to save us.
You came from heaven to earth, to show the way
From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky
Lord I lift your name on high. - Rick Founds
When I woke up this morning, the above song, by Rick Founds, burst out of my heart in praises and adoration of the Lord. As I reflect over the month of August and indeed the preceding months of the year, I discover that it is only the grace of God that has seen me thus far, and I know this same grace will see me through the remaining part of the year. I don't know if you share the same experience with me. If so, please join me again in singing the song. The sound of joy and rejoicing shall never cease in your homes and life this year and throughout your sojourn on earth in Jesus name. Amen.
Indeed we owe a great debt of love to our God and Father. See the great things He did and is doing for us, as I outlined in the message of August; He daily loads us with blessings and fills our mouths with laughter. This reminds me of Psalm 126: 1-3, When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them." The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad. ESV
I believe that in this closing quarter of year 2013, the Lord wants to bring a renewal into our lives. He wants to restore to us all that the cankerworm and the palmerworm have stolen and destroyed in our lives. He wants to bring all threats against us to an end, shut the mouth of the enemies and crown the year with laughter, singing and songs of joy. At the end of the month we will come with rejoicing, bringing our sheaves. Amen. Indeed we need to realize the debt of love we owe our Lord and Savior and have a thankful and grateful heart. No matter what the devil and his cohorts in hell and on earth are planning against you in this month of September, the Lord goes before you, with the shout of a warrior king. He will utterly plead your cause and destroy all your enemies. You shall have rest and peace within and around your borders this month and for the rest of the year in Jesus name. Amen. The Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace, now and forevermore. Amen.
Have a glorious and praise filled month.
Prayer(s) for the Month
