Being led by God’s Sprirt

Acts 20:22 ‘And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there.’

What a wonderful Scripture! Here Paul places his trust firmly in God’s hands. As humans we like to know what to expect, here Paul acknowledges that he is compelled, not by a vague thought or prompting. Do you ever seek a walk compelled by the Spirit which carries unforeseen possibilities? It is really only in this realm that when we enter when in total submission to God, we come onto the path that God has laid out for us. To enter this realm requires intimate prayer and fasting. Let God speak to you, let the Good Shepherd lead you. A better path and destination awaits you. Pray for strength today to trust our LORD on a far deeper level. Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed Father, please deepen the fasting and prayer life of your children.

God’s creation

Luke 1:44 ‘For the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy.’

Titled planned parenthood around the world, in other words abortion on demand. Claimed convenience being the overriding factor influencing the decision. A baby’s heart beat starts at about 3 weeks, a baby has nerves, feels pain and can hear – that is life. Claimed women’s rights devoid of baby’s rights is genocide of the unborn by abortion.

Has the media fostered a deep apathy within many people of faith? ‘‘Heard about that, but I cannot go and stand outside an abortion clinic with a placard.’’ But what can you do? Blessed brothers, faith and daily prayer for the safety of the unborn, the demise of the abortion clinics, the changing of the hearts of those who murder. Will we as people of faith be called to account? ‘‘Yes, I watched, was aware and did nothing.’’ Or, ‘‘I prayed daily and fought for God’s creation.’’ Ask our LORD what he calls you to do. Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed Father, please heal this world of the desire for comfort and convenience, that life is truly treasured, your creation is valued.

Let Dominique find you in her struggle with ill health. Strengthen David in his work. Fill Meghan, Jen, Mathew, Elsa, Enrique, Michael , Delano, Anthony, Jean- Pierre and Enzo with your gift of faith and healing. Please reconcile and restore Anton and Nadia, Monique and Brett, Lambert and Ida, please help Kevin with business, David, Peter, Jared and Imelda with employment and restore and heal: Moira, Phoebe, Aaron, Christian, Kerry, Ryan, Larry, Deidre, Liz, Keith, Martine, Jude, Dricky, Ria, Albert, John, Tiffany, Mathew, John, Richard, Dominique, Lequisha, Jeanne, Nicolene, Sandy, Christopher, N, Theresa, Ryan, Fr Barney, Bronwyn, Charlotte, Vicky, Claudia, Wendy, Travis, Jenny, Chris, Petra, Ward, Theresa-Charmaine, Mel, Christopher, Ken, Rose, Debbie, Darren, Eric, Bernadine , Alice, Daniel, Fatima, Allyson, Veronica, Tracey, Keith, Chris, Fr Terry, Helmut, Justine, Joseph, Graham, Angelo, Nicole, Gabriel, Leigh, Rene, Joanne.

The eyes of your hearts

Ephesians 1:18 ‘..having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you’

The spiritual heart is positioned for the light of God to shine in, you are called to open that heart to the grace and mercy of our LORD. Intellect and the calls of modernism to change Jesus holy church are attempts to elevate the stature of man above God or to be devoid of God. We cannot reason our way into salvation as products of intellectual choices, we are presented with the great gift of Jesus and his grace; when he is enlightening your heart you will be filled with hope, the state of the heart is more important than the state of the mind. Hope of our LORD is unable to be spiritually reasoned in the mind but is an outpouring of our LORD into your heart. May the hope in Jesus fill your heart today. Bless you.

Prayer. Heavenly Father may Moira’s surgery go well, may she be healed and restored.

Don’t waste suffering

Mathew 6:33 ‘But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.’

Sometimes the way forward may be clouded by circumstances and distraction, everyone is searching even the atheists and agnostics look for purpose and understanding. The question is where do you place your search? Psalm 34:19 ‘Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.’ So we knowingly search for God and his righteousness with the understanding that we are exposing ourselves to challenges to our faith. Affliction/hardship/difficulty/loss and many more. It is really only through this affliction that we grow close to our LORD by sharing this suffering with Jesus on the cross. It is through this sharing of this suffering our burden is lightened. Blessed sisters and brothers, the difficulty is not the end but the beginning for you to persevere and say the LORD delivers him out of them all. Speak to the LORD, he also suffered on the cross. Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed Father, thank you that there was a peaceful election in South Africa. Please .

Hope

John 6:30 "Then what sign do you do, that we may see, and believe you?’’

Demanding or hoping for confirmation from God? The people around Jesus made their faith conditional on what sign do you do? What happens when you reach out in prayer asking God for something to happen and you do not see the immediate result? Is your faith conditional on a sign? Hope is a gift from God. Blessed friends, hope is not static but a journey in the present and for far deeper things beyond a present sign. Hope needs to be nurtured and visited each day in prayer. Rather than asking God for a sign that you want, ask him to show his love for you. Our LORD has great love and grace in store for you. The mysteries of perseverance carry great reward. Place your hopes and prayers before God today. ‘‘I trust in you LORD Jesus, I trust in you.’’ Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed Father, please let there be a peaceful election in South Africa on 8th May. Please break the drought in Western Cape.

The poor

Mathew 26:11 ‘The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.’

Jesus shows that his physical life on earth was temporal, but that the poor will remain. Why is this? Why did Jesus not come to dispense with the poor and bring physical wealth to all? In this time before Good Friday we can ask what do we do for the poor? Have our consciences been overwhelmed by the massive volume of poor and suffering? The poor are a reflection of the actions of humanity. James 2:15,16 ‘Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don’t have enough to eat. What good is there in your saying to them, “God bless you! Keep warm and eat well!” – if you don’t give them the necessities of life?’ Bring God’s love to those in need. May God bless you in this Holy week remembering Jesus’s crucifixion.

Prayer. Heavenly Father, thank you for your wonderful grace.
