Divine Note #37 - Life just doesn’t work until Jesus is #1 in your life - Isaiah 65:24

Divine Note #37 – September 14, 2009

Life just doesn’t work until Jesus is #1 in your life - Isaiah 65:24
I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking to me about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
This Divine Note goes out to lift anyone who reads it and needs to feel peace and joy in their life. I was blown away by Pastor Paul’s sermon on A Man Named Jesus and the title of this note is taken from one of his quotes. I’ve often thought how brilliant of God to become human so that we could relate to Him on our own level. There’s no other religion or god on our planet that compares to Christianity because we have Christ who knows what we feel before we even say it. He knows how happy, sad or indifferent our day is before we even say a word. He’s been there through every sad and happy moment of our lives.

Lately I’ve been talking about how wonderful it is to walk with God in the good times because we can bet that we will want to walk with Him in the not-so-good times! Are you walking in His power and in His will every day?

How does it look like when you make God the priority in your life?If you are married or in a relationship, do you remember how you behaved around your loved one when you initially fell in love? You did everything possible to please them. It’s the same with God.

· You must give Him first place in your life (above spouse, children, job, etc)
· It means communicating with Him all the time!
· It’s my opinion that you need sustained quiet time with Him
· You must read the Bible (I sound like a broken CD)
· You also must learn how to listen to what He is saying to you.

Dear Father,
I thank you for every day of my life! Thank you for giving me the desire to serve you! I just want to thank you and praise you for being such a super sweet God! I’m not asking for anything this time! I just want to give you a BIG BLANCA HUG for loving me so much! Thank you for all the people you’ve placed in my life. Just thanks for being you, Lord! Love you so much! Always!

There’s no love like the love of Jesus Christ! Amen! Be Blessed!

Scriptures for life

Compiled December 2011
These are a few of my favorite Scriptures. I cannot live my life without God and his word. I keep a 3x5 wire bound note diary of verses that pop off the pages of my Bibles. This helps me in case I need to comfort someone with a specific verse. Start your own collection!


Comfort

Psalm 119:76 Comfort me with your love, as you promised me, your servant.
Job 4:4 Your words have comforted those who fell, and you have strengthened those who could not stand.
Strength

Psalm 18:1 I love you, LORD. You give me strength.
Psalm 29:11 The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
