Psalm 19:10-11 hcs

gold-texture002

We are often annoyed by rules and laws, anyone’s rules and laws, even God’s.
We rarely think of them as desirable and sweet.
We may see that they are a warning or an admonishing, however, 
let us also understand that there is reward in keeping the law.
Unlike man-made laws that may reward us now
keeping God’s law has it rewards now and forever.

Do you dislike rules?
Will you try, this week, to think of them as desirable and sweet?

Blessings this day of grace,

Isaiah 49:3-4 niv

heart

The Master’s glory is to be shown through His servant.
The servant replies that his work has not been productive.
Still, the servant knows that everything is in God’s plan and purpose for him.
The servant has no doubt where is his reward.

What happens when you are discouraged?
Do you feel sorry for yourself or do you have confidence in the Lord?

Blessings this day of grace,

Matthew 5:11-12 niv

leavesIt may be hard to rejoice when you are being persecuted.
But if you can keep your eyes on Jesus and remember His words
you will know great joy.

Do you rejoice in spite of the persecution you face?
How do you keep rejoicing in difficult times?

Blessings this day of grace,

Prov 23:17-18 nlt

happyday

Love the Lord without distraction and your hope will be realized.
There is no reward for the envious; their hope will come to nothing.

Do you feel that if you had what others have your life would be better?
Does this feeling  make you feel dissatisfied with your life?
What can you do to have contentment now while you wait for your hope?

Blessings this day of grace,

patricia
