He Died on the Cross For Us

I will follow wherever you lead, my Lord!

By Teresa Smeigh

This is something different. (Part dream, part reality, I was bullied as a child)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The beautiful little fairy/pixie got dressed for the morning at school. She dreaded this because the other fairies were so mean to her. She was freshly cleaned and nicely dressed, but they still didn’t like her unless she let them copy her schoolwork.

She flew over to the area where they held school and settled on a branch as far away as she could while still being able to hear the teachers.

The murmuring started among her fellow fairies. “Give us your homework, NOW!” they yelled in unison. They grabbed her and held her down trying to get the homework from her.

I couldn’t watch the poor fairy being bullied anymore and I stepped in, lifted my arm and prepared to save the poor thing.

“Wait! Vengeance is mine,” sayeth the Lord! (Romans 12:19)

I lowered my arm, ashamed at what I had planned to do. I was just as bad as the other fairies.

(“I heard the shout loud and clear – I was awake by then. Jesus was reminding me of the bad thoughts I had for vengeance and reminding me it was his job.”) I tried to punish my ex-husband for what he did to me, but the Lord was reminding me it was not my place to do the punishment and I wished he had gotten there sooner and not let me try to punish my ex-husband. I hurt others in the process.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you for reminding me that vengeance is yours. It is not my job to punish anyone. Sometimes I need reminding.

Amen

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

I Corinthians 6:23

He Died on the Cross For Us

I will follow wherever you lead, my Lord!

By Teresa Smeigh

2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV  We take captive of every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

~~~~~~~

No disobedient thoughts from the liar. Do not give in to him. Replace them with the truth of God’s Word.

Jesus takes responsibility for your success as you walk with him. The Father loves you so much He will never let go of you.

~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Please root out the enemy’s lies and replace with your word. Remove the strongholds so that I may walk in your freedom and glorify your name. In God I trust.

In the Lord’s name I pray,

Amen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

Prepare For Blessing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 84:11

The Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those that walk uprightly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you wait for God to fulfill his promises to you, the thought may enter your mind that you are not good enough for God to give you what you want. He is preparing you to be ready for his plan to be carried out.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you for loving me. You are so wise and kind, so I will wait for you.

Amen

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

By Teresa Smeigh

Seek Me with All Your Heart


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:13  You will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find me when you search for Me with all your heart.

~~~~~~~

A commitment to spend time with God is as serious a commitment as any we will ever make.

The quality of our lives is affected by the time we spend with Him.

Do not become slack in the time you spend with Him because you know he is always available. Make him your priority.

~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

I am sorry for the times that I do not make you a priority in my life and do other non-important things. I shall make a commitment to spend time with you every day.

In the Lord’s name I pray,

Amen
