Moments with God
New Testament Bible Reading Plan
Day 49

“Evil people try to drag me into sin,
but I am firmly anchored to your instructions.
I rise at midnight to thank you
for your just regulations.
I am a friend to anyone who fears you—
anyone who obeys your commandments.
O Lord, your unfailing love fills the earth;
teach me your decrees.” Psalms 119:61-64

O God, our Father in heaven, as Your followers, we thank You for telling us about Your nature and character in the Bible. Your word does make us wise and enables us to live with confidence in You. As we meditate on Your word and learn more about You, please give us greater understanding, so we can keep away from evil and share Your grace and truth with others. Fill us with the Holy Spirit, so we can bring happiness to Your heart in accordance with the purposes of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 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.
