Walking with others

June 25, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
To get the most out of every relationship under the sun, it must include the Son. Make Jesus your constant companion.

A verse…

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NLT

A reading…
Ecclesiastes 4
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes+4&version=NLT

Ecclesiastes 4:6-8 NLT
The Advantages of Companionship
I observed yet another example of something meaningless under the sun. This is the case of a man who is all alone, without a child or a brother, yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can. But then he asks himself, “Who am I working for? Why am I giving up so much pleasure now?” It is all so meaningless and depressing…

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior thank You for everyone You’ve placed in my life. For all the moments which become memories. And for blessings You have given us. Amen

Walking through time in Ecclesiastes

June 23, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Time, the most valuable gift we can give, and have. Yet we so often give such little thought about just how and with who we spend it. Oh and how much of it we waste worrying about things we will never change. And chasing things we will never find under the sun. Thinking about what we want to be, without knowing who we are. Only in the Son can we find our daily bread and begin to understand what God planted in our hearts.

A verse…

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT

A reading…
Ecclesiastes 3
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes+3&version=NLT

A Time for Everything
For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven…
Ecclesiastes 3:1 NLT

The Injustices of Life
I also noticed that under the sun there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt! I said to myself, “In due season God will judge everyone, both good and bad, for all their deeds.”
Ecclesiastes 3:16-17 NLT

A prayer…
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior. Only in You! Can we find and fulfill what we are meant to be and do. Know peace without understanding. That is my prayer today. That all of mine and those that read this today, will stop and think about what they really know about You. And how well they know You. That they will want to get to know You, and know You more and more above all. To spend time with You, to walk with You. To learn from You. Amen

Walking through Ecclesiastes

June 22, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
I’m so troubled when I hear about someone ending their own life. Whether the celebrity or the bullied child. Something has to be missing. Something has to be wrong. As Ecclesiastes Chapter 1 states ‘even with all his wisdom and wealth, Solomon still feels empty and dissatisfied.

Centuries later, in a letter written by the apostle Paul, we discover the reason for Solomon’s sense of utter futility. All the wisdom of the world can never satisfy the human spirit. Only Jesus can bring peace and a sense of purpose. He is both the power and the wisdom of God. “For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself”
(1 Corinthians 1:18-31).’

Jesus is the answer and He is the cure!

A verse…

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
John 6:63 NLT

A reading…
Ecclesiastes 2
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes+2&version=NLT

Ecclesiastes 2:17-18— Work, Solomon laments, is “meaningless” in the end, because it’s “like chasing the wind.” Jesus later puts an exclamation point on this truth: “Human effort accomplishes nothing.” But, he says, his words “are spirit and life”( John 6:63 ).

A prayer…
O Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior ‘So many questions
The world is reaching
So many hurting, so many lost
With all this striving
Who can we lean on
Creation’s crying out from the dark
You are the answer to every question
The one solution to every fear
You are our help and where it comes from
You see our sadness

You feel our sorrow
And in our weakness, You make us strong
You hold the weight of
All of our failings
Great is our sin but greater the cross
For every heart that’s breaking

For every soul that’s shaking
For every sickness there’s healing in Your hands
Let every heart awaken
To see it’s You who saves us
You are my hope and the rock on which I stand
You are the answer to every question

The one solution to every fear
You are my help and where it comes from
Jesus, You are the answer
Amen

Today’s prayer is from the lyrics of today’s song The Answer by Jeremy Camp’s.

OneWalk: Daily Direction Video

OneWalk: Daily encouragement and resources for OneWalk under the Sun, with the Son

I received this from my son this morning…

Walking with the Wisdom of Ecclesiastes

Walking with the Wisdom of Ecclesiastes

June 21, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Ever since my oldest sister gave me a CD set of her Pastors sermons on Ecclesiastes it’s been one of my favorite books in the Bible. Like all my other favorite books, each time I read them I learn or see something new or different. That’s why when I’m or one of mine is dealing with something or someone that requires divine truth and or wisdom I refer to them. Such is the case know with my son, so I decided to read and study it again as I lift it all up to my Lord God in prayer in the name of Jesus.

A verse…

"Everything is meaningless," says the Teacher, "completely meaningless!"
Ecclesiastes 1:2 NLT

A reading…
Ecclesiastes 1
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes+1&version=NLT

Ecclesiastes 1:18— We believe that increasing our knowledge and wisdom will ultimately satisfy us, but Solomon says that it “only increases sorrow.” Later, the apostle Paul, one of the most knowledgeable men on the earth at the time, says: “For I decided that while I was with you I would forget everything except Jesus Christ, the one who was crucified”( 1 Corinthians 2:2 ).

A prayer…
O God, my Abba Father, Jesus my Savior why? What is it that leads us to sin knowing it only separates us from You. To want to know and experience for ourselves, rather than trust You. To repeat the sins of our fathers, even when we cursed them. Is it all meaninglessness, except for You. Then why? So much I want to understand but don’t and won’t. So I choose trust! To trust in You. To lift up each of mine by name (…) to You. Asking that You bless them, that Your hand be with them to keep them from evil and causing pain; and to know and follow Your will for them. Amen

Walking with Empathy

June 20, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Words are so powerful. The wrong words kill and destroy. The right words give life and bring healing. So is knowing when to speak and when to just listen. Let the Holy Spirit guide you on what and when to speak.

A verse…

No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was.
Job 2:13

A devotion …
Silence and Spiritual Walk: The Silence of Empathy
Today in the Word
https://www.todayintheword.org/issues/2018/06—june/devotions/20/

Then the three of them sat silently with him for an entire week (v. 13). This showed a deep empathy for his physical, mental, and spiritual suffering. It also showed respect—Job should be the one to speak first. Perhaps words seemed powerless in the face of what had happened. Perhaps they were afraid of making things worse by speaking (as did indeed happen). If only they had never opened their mouths at all (see Job 13:1–12)!

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior I am lost and don’t know what to do but be there. Give me strength and patience to be there wisely. Let the Holy Spirit guide my words and control my emotions and expressions. Let Jesus fill my heart with His love. Let the healing power of Your grace rain down on us today and bring life to our dreams. Amen

Walking with Jesus

June 19, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Here I am Lord, practicing Your presence in thought, in word, in prayer and in worship. Trusting You for all things. Readying myself to be a point of light.

A verse…

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
Psalm 5:11

A devotion …
Jesus Calling

I AM THE FIRM FOUNDATION on which you can dance and sing and celebrate My Presence. This is My high and holy calling for you; receive it as a precious gift. Glorifying and enjoying Me is a higher priority than maintaining a tidy, structured life. Give up your striving to keep everything under control—an impossible task and a waste of precious energy.

My guidance for each of My children is unique. That’s why listening to Me is so vital for your well-being. Let me prepare you for the day that awaits you and point you in the right direction. I am with you continually, so don’t be intimidated by fear. Though it stalks you, it cannot harm you, as long as you cling to My hand. Keep your eyes on Me, enjoying Peace in My Presence.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus.
—Ephesians 3:20–21

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
—Jude vv. 24–25

“No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
—Joshua 1:5

A prayer…
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done. On earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us of our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.
Amen 🙏
