Good Morning All, I was contemplating whether or not this is for us... but feel clearly now that it is. Last night during my QT - the Lord took me to some scripture. Haggai 2:10-19 (please look this up) but then from there He took me to this: Malachi 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. I believe the "tithe" God is speaking of is not monetary... it's something of value - which could look different for each of us. His word does not return void! Bring all you have before Him - give Him ALL until you are empty. In Him ~ Mechelle

Psalm 119:41 ESV Let your steadfast love come to me, O LORD, your salvation according to your promise. His love is and will forever be first and foremost because of the sacrificial love he GAVE TO US through Jesus. Let us fix our hearts & eyes on the true gift-giver and be amazed at his faithfulness.

Keep A Steadfast Mind Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3 You probably know your share of people who are messing up their lives big time, and some are already on the brink of destruction. Why is this the case? Well, most people don't practice keeping a steadfast mind. When your mind is steadfast, then it is firmly fixed in place. Isaiah 26 says, "...whose mind is stayed on thee..." The word 'stayed' is important here because it means your mind is not subject to change. Your mind is firm in belief, determination, or adherence. For years, I've noticed that many successful people master this issue of the mind. They have learned how to be firmly fixed, or to take the position to follow after what is the right course of action. They will apply their decision to the end and do whatever it takes to sharpen themselves once their minds are determined. This is certainly true regarding the things of God. You'll have victory in your life once you learn to keep a steadfast mind. Isaiah 26 continues by giving you the reason why you need a steadfast mind. God will keep you in perfect peace. Having perfect peace is what you should strive for. It means regardless of what comes your way, you're cool and even-tempered. Nothing can upset, bother, or destroy you. You're at rest with things and you operate in total confidence. When you learn to trust in God, the result is perfect peace. Yet, there are many Christians who don't have this peace. Let's examine why. James 1:5 says, "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." You can't go around your whole life as a man or woman of two minds, who is always hesitating. That's being uncertain and unreliable about everything you think, feel, or decide. A steadfast mind is necessary in order to function in God's perfect peace. James, chapter 5 outlines the problem of an unstable person: he's unstable in all his ways. Do you understand that a double-minded man is not just unstable in one area, but every single area of his life? But, you can have a steadfast mind! Just keep your mind stayed on God and His principles, and it will produce perfect peace and victory in your life. Scripture references: Romans 8:64 Denise R

WOW! I was delayed, but this is what I read last night: Psalm 4:3 But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him. ESV study notes says: "The same Hebrew word is rendered "set apart" in Ex 8:22 and makes a distinction in Ex 9:4, 11:7, 33:16. The idea is that God sets his special attention and affection on a person or people to distinguish them, the godly. The Hebrew word (Hasid) is the adjective form of "steadfast love" (hesed) This term variously rendered "godly," "saint," "faithful one," and "holy one" in the Psalms refers to those who have genuinely laid hold of God's steadfast love, here it is singular, to stress that each faithful member of the people may have this confidence." I believe we have a theme going- please see Psalm 119:41 day 1 verse I sent! THEN I read... Isaiah 26:3-4 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. ~Marilena~

Joel Osteen/ Posted by Diana Zamora Set the Blessing in Motion Today's Scripture "Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full-pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back" (Luke 6:38). Today's Word from Joel and Victoria God is a god of abundance! He wants to pour out His abundance on you until you are so full that you are running over with His goodness. And notice how this verse starts. It says, "Give, and it will be given to you." Your giving sets the blessing of God into motion in your life. Giving is like a seed. When you plant an apple seed, it doesn't just grow a single fruit. That one seed grows into a tree that produces an abundance of apples! That's what happens when you obey God in your giving. You receive an abundant harvest in return. It's overflowing, literally "running over"! And when the blessing is running over, it means you have so much that you want to give more. The cycle just keeps repeating itself! Is there something the Lord is telling you to give today? It could be financial, material, or even your talents and service to others. What do you have in your hand that you can use to bless someone else? Take a step today and set the blessing of God into motion in your life. Open the door for His blessing to be running over in every area of your life today! A Prayer for Today Father in heaven, I choose to obey Your Word. I choose to be a tither and a giver. I choose to give to others knowing that You will use me in a greater capacity in return. In Jesus' Name. Amen

11/03/08 by Diana Z Continual and Loving Communication In the message "By Our Love" we saw how Jesus desires for us to mature in our love for our Heavenly Father and for others. But as we continue our walk, we soon discover many decision points where we choose between two paths. At these critical moments, we must be able to recognize His leading; and if we have not spent time worshiping at His feet and communicating in prayer, we cannot expect to understand or even hear His guidance in our time of greatest need. Communication is essential for maturing in any relationship. A marriage which lacks communication will slowly begin to drift apart. It's not uncommon for married couples to live together for the majority of their lives and yet feel like strangers because they have failed to spend the time required to really know and understand one another. Our relationship with God is much the same. When we receive the gift of Salvation through faith in Jesus, we begin a life long relationship of love - a relationship which must be nurtured through fellowship and prayer. Psalm 5:1-3 "Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to You I pray. In the morning, O Lord, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait in expectation." David states that the morning is his dedicated time for prayer; his time to be alone with God, to share his heart and expectantly await God's direction. But God has not specified a preferred time. In fact, Paul encourages us to maintain a constant state of communion with God when he says to "pray continuously" (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We ought to strive for communication which is regular and frequent; any time is the right time for prayer - any time is the right time to commune with the one you love! Prayer must originate from a sincere heart, anything less becomes a ritual of meaningless words. We should be motivated by a desire to strengthen our relationship - to praise Him for His blessings and earnestly ask for His guidance - and to deepen the commitment of our love. We ought to value our time with God above anything else this world has to offer: "One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life" (Psalm 27:4). Let's make sure our love doesn't fade. Let's set aside time each day to be alone with God - quiet time where we can hear His voice and begin to understand His character. Then, let's continue to commune and fellowship with Him throughout our times of busyness. Let's learn to dwell in His house all the rest of our days by maintaining continual and loving communication. Have a Christ Centered Day! Steve Troxel God's Daily Word Ministries
