Lonely place

Mark 1:35 ‘In the morning, long before dawn, he got up and left the house and went off to a lonely place and prayed there.’

What a fascinating Scripture. On the face of it the message to go and pray early in quietness, further looking at the word lonely is a word related to possibly abandonment, rejection, no one to talk to and yet at this place and in this space Jesus talks to the Father. Scripture could have used the word quiet. Our LORD brings us this great teaching of opposites – the world view versus God’s view, where the world describes and associates negatively with the word lonely…. is God’s domain. The world may reject you, people may judge you, in the eyes of the world you may not qualify, but you are never alone. Seeking and guarding in love your lonely space with God. Understanding that space is where you start a qualification for salvation. Where are lonely spaces that you have glossed over before? May you be blessed in your search.

Prayer. Gracious heavenly Father, please kindle in the hearts of your children a deeper desire to grow close to you.

Inviting God’s love

1 John 5:3 ‘This is what the love of God is..’

Good people love of God is living, working in and around you today. The question today is how far do you think that God’s love reaches? When the word love becomes static or stationary it becomes a description and not an evolving reality. Romans 8:39 ‘neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ Moving from the fringes as a spectator into a holy space where you commit your heart anew each day, you will be able to see and feel God’s love at work. Our LORD has great and wonderful plans for you. Invite him in to be your Shepherd, Counselor and King. Great blessing awaits you. Peace be with you today.

Prayer. Blessed Father, thank you for family, the love of husband and wife and giving me 33 years of blessed marriage with my beloved wife Kim today. Please bring a special measure of your working love into the hearts of all your children today and this weekend.

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: Brad, 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.

Acceptability before God

1 John 3:22 ‘…and whatever we ask we shall receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what is acceptable to him.’

A truly amazing Scripture. Faith is multi-layered and can often be defined by having asked God and feeling that you are still waiting or have impatiently given up or you see that your prayers have been answered. But what about doing what is acceptable to him? When dwelling in Christ’s message. 1 John 3:23 ‘His commandment is this, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and that we should love one another as he commanded us.’ The quality of your prayer requests are directly influenced by your relationship with Jesus and one another. Obedience to Jesus is so much of a joy when you have spent time speaking to him and thanking him; acceptability to him knocks. Bless you.

Prayer. Holy Father, please take back the hearts of humanity and move them from spiritual waste to spiritual purpose. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.

Let Dominique find you in her struggle with ill health. Strengthen David in his work.

Promises

Luke 1:45 ‘Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the LORD would be fulfilled.’

There is a blessing for you in the knowledge that the LORD has made promises to you….that is before you have even received the promise. It indeed carries great joy seeking out his promises over your life. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’ Time with our LORD – just you and him. Praying that God will bring you disciples that bring wise counsel according to the LORD. Imagine living a life, negotiating the ebbs and flows of the world and never knowing what God has promised for you. You are a special creation of God and he wants to care for you…..fully. Is the door open for him or only partly open? Bless you.

Prayer. Heavenly Father please bless all readers of this meditation, their families and those they love, bless and strengthen all the clergy, keep all with guarded and guided hearts. May peace reign in the hearts of all mankind and may this sustain into 2019 as we celebrate the birth of our LORD. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.

Let Dominique find you in her struggle with ill health. Strengthen David in his work.

Working it out

Luke 1:11,12 ‘Then there appeared to him the angel of the Lord, standing on the right of the altar of incense. The sight disturbed Zechariah and he was overcome with fear.’

Zechariah has a visit from the angel Gabrielle announcing that his wife Elizabeth will become pregnant for the first time, he had surely prayed for many years as his wife was no longer young. Today as you reflect on the current year coming to a close, there may be seemingly insurmountable difficulties before you that may likely carry into the new year, that you may have prayed on to God for many years. Zechariah doubted and lost the ability to speak until the birth of John the Baptist his son. How are you preparing your own heart for this? Have you asked others to pray for you? Even with the revelation of God before you, cast aside fear and doubt. The LORD loves your faith in circumstances of seemingly insurmountable difficulties. Will these difficulties rule you or will your faith master over them? Your faith is a mighty gift. Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed LORD, please fill your children with true joy and peace at this most wonderful time of the year pending the remembrance of the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.

Faithful words

Psalm 145:17 ‘The LORD is faithful in all his words, and gracious in all his deeds.’

Most of us would likely not be able to remember word for word what we said yesterday. Our LORD knows and keeps to everything that he has said, his words are a promise for you. What does a promise mean to you? God’s promises are a blueprint for your prayers. ‘‘According to your words LORD, you have said…………………’’ Repeated prayer proclaiming in your mind, heart and aloud of what God has promised over you. Dormant prayer will remain in a lifelong slumber until awakened by your search in Holy Scripture asking God for relevance and direction. What promises does God have prepared for you? Bless you.

Prayer. Holy Father, thank you for your grace and mercy, that I may be slow to find you, plant in me a deep desire to grow closer to you, free of distraction. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.

Transforming the mind in prayer

Mathew 18:12 ‘What do you think?’

How much of your time in the day is spent on thinking? The question should possibly rather be on what do you spend your time thinking on? Some who carry deep regret after a personal tragedy/loss or difficulty rerun their involvement in circumstances again and again carrying a deeply self-critical voice or have creeping fears and doubts that pervade the thinking. Romans12:2 ‘Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.’ The LORD has answers to all your questions, doubts and fears ask him in quiet prayer. Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me and I will answer and show you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Bless you.

Prayer. Heavenly Father, please inhabit the minds of your children, may we all seek you and gift you with our time in unhurried prayer. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa. May Ashley’s soul rest in peace.
