Moments with God
New Testament Bible Reading Plan
Day 38

Help me understand the meaning of your commandments,
and I will meditate on your wonderful deeds.
I weep with sorrow;
encourage me by your word. Psalm 119:27-28

We have the answer to every problem, the solution to every dilemma, wisdom, discernment, joy, peace, love…anything and everything that we need can be found in the Bible. The only thing we need to do is ask God for enlightenment from His word. 

Thank You, God for the Spirit’s transforming work within us. We love You and we come to You today with willing hearts, ready to be changed by Your Spirit, in any way You see fit. As we open our Bibles today, we are on the alert for any changes in our actions and attitudes that You feel need to be transformed. We are relying on Your strength and Your grace, as we move forward in this day, to do those things that You have called us to do through our time alone in Your presence. In Jesus name, Amen

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
