Quiet Time With Jesus – Luke 1:37

Friday, 11 May 2018

Today I read 2 Peter 1 slowly, pausing at words that ‘jump’ out at me…

His divine power has given us EVERYTHING WE NEED for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may PARTICIPATE in the DIVINE NATURE and ESCAPE the CORRUPTION in the world caused by evil desires. (Through Christ, WE ARE ABLE!)
— 2 Peter 1:3-4

Peter said that he thinks it is right to REFRESH our memory… Peter himself is an eyewitness of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Just imagine hearing the voice of God saying, “This is My Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.”

In my spiritual mind, I see [what Peter wrote] a LIGHT shining in a dark place [at first it’s just a spot of light; then it grows bigger and bigger, brighter and brighter] until the day dawns and the morning star rises in our hearts. (2 Peter 1:19)

Father God, let our faith [even if it is as small as a spot of light] grow...

Himpossible Thinker’s Creed

When my journey is disrupted, along a path unexpected, I will not be downhearted, but continue on undefeated.

When my plans are rejected, and hopes completely shattered, I will not be weak-minded, for my dreams will be transcended.

Whatever troubles may arise, and my strength seems paralysed, I will not be demoralized, because tomorrow the sun will rise.

As I begin to visualize, my problems will vapourize, my plans will materialize, when God takes charge of my life. Amen!

My Prayer

Dear Father God,

I pray that Your divine power will give us EVERYTHING WE NEED for life and godliness through our knowledge of Jesus Christ who called us by His own glory and goodness. I pray that the above poem inspired by Your Word (Luke 1:37) will encourage and strengthen every reader. May Your Word bring us Life and Hope, and may Grace and Peace be ours in abundance. Amen!
