|SCRIPTURE||THEME||MEDITATIONAL THOUGHT||KEY POINTS||PRAYER|
|Joshua 1:5-7 (NKJV)||The Faithfulness of God||It shouts me when I realize, that God has honored me with the same promise of His faithfulness that made my predecessors at Salem great warriors and witnesses in the Kingdom of God.||A. The Faithfulness of God Never Forsakes Us|
B. The Faithfulness of God Never Forgets Us
C. The Faithfulness of God Never Fails Us
|Lord, help me to remember, the promised assurance of Your f faithfulness. In Jesus Name. Amen.|
|Genesis 45:1-8 (NKJV)||An Unexpected Tapestry||It shouts me to know that God works behind the scenes to reweave the tapestry of my life regardless of my messes, mistakes, and missteps.||What others see in us is very different from what God sees. |
God takes the tapestry woven in our lives and turns it into something unexpected.
God can take our greatest mistakes and turn them into something good.
|God, thank you for see me in my highest possibility and blessing me even when my
actions are inconsistent with your will for my life. Amen.
|Matthew 1:1-6 (NKJV)||Shaking the Family Tree||It shouts me when I realize that the inclusive, sovereign, and redemptive power of God covered and kept our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as a holy and acceptable sacrifice, as He journeyed through a messy family genealogy on His way to the cross, the grave, and resurrection.||God is an inclusive God - God is a God of all people, not just the Jews but everybody.|
God is a sovereign God - While we may not always like it, what God has in store for us is for us; nobody will be able to stop it or take it away.
God is a redemptive God - God can redeem the most difficult situations and turn them into blessings.
|Lord, help me to remember You are a faithful provider. In Jesus Name, AMEN|
|Psalm 18:1-3 (NKJV)||The Worthy God We Worship||It shouts me to know that like the psalmist David, we should have a song of victory in our hearts and on our lips because we have been saved by God's grace.||The Lord is worthy of our affection|
The Lord is worthy of our confidence
The Lord is worthy of our praise
|Lord, teach me to call upon you, no matter what circumstances I find myself in. Cause me to realize that there is victory in you and that you are my Savior forever. You are worthy to be praised. In Jesus Name, AMEN.|
