My Walks with Jesus

July 31, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…

I always feel so much closer to my Lord Jesus Christ after one of my Saturday morning walks. Some how it’s like my body, mind and spirit come together and are focused on one thing, connecting to Him. Whether He’s convicting me, teaching me, or just comforting me. Often all three. I just can’t get enough. As I listen to my audio Bible, or an audio book or worship music. It’s all about Him and I seek to immerse myself in His teachings and love.

My walks with Him are like the quote above says…

Dear Lord,
Forgive what I have been,
Correct what I am,
And direct what I will be.

During the week my mornings start with this one and one time with Him. This time is more mind and spirit, but with the same goal of connecting to Him for the day ahead. My commitment to share these posts and long days at work limit my walks during the week. But I do try to surround myself with Him throughout the day with a sermon, a lecture or worship music.

I just can’t get enough of Jesus! I seek His presence and guidance in everything. #OneWalk

A verse…
Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
James 1:4

A devotion…
Becoming Entirely His
My Utmost for His Highest
https://utmost.org/becoming-entirely-his/

Not only must our relationship to God be right, but the outward expression of that relationship must also be right. Ultimately, God will allow nothing to escape; every detail of our lives is under His scrutiny. God will bring us back in countless ways to the same point over and over again. And He never tires of bringing us back to that one point until we learn the lesson, because His purpose is to produce the finished product.

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior thank You for each and every blessing. I see Your hand and feel Your presence. I love You, I am sorry, forgive me, thank You. Continue Your work in me. Amen

Walking with hope

July 27, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Never give up hope!

A verse…

“I pray that God, the source of all hope, will infuse your lives with an abundance of joy and peace in the midst of your faith so that your hope will overflow through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 (VOICE)

A devotion …
Hope: The Antidote to the Quitter Instinct CrossCards: Encouragement for Today – July 25, 2018

https://www.crosscards.com/devotionals/encouragement-for-today/encouragement-for-today-july-25-2018.html

God created hope to intertwine with every part of life, which is why holding on to it makes all the difference. Letting go of hope is why we walk out of a hard marriage. It’s why we give up on a wayward child. Hopelessness is what makes us reject challenging friendships and step out of frustrating community groups. Losing hope is why we turn our backs on difficult family members, quit frustrating positions of leadership and let go of a dream that feels too far off. But God didn’t create us to be quitters.

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior all my hope is in You. Wherever I go, whatever I do, I do it better when my hope is focused on You and Your will, not mine. You are my inspiration and source of hope. I’ve learned to walk without understanding the way and or knowing the outcome as long as I have hope. Hope that in some way, as small as it maybe, You are using me for Your purpose. And as long as I keep the faith, have hope and love, Your will, will be done. Amen

Walking to purity of heart is a long walk you can’t take alone

July 26, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Purity of heart isn’t possible alone. Only in and with Jesus can we receive His Spirit and begin the process of dying to ourselves.

A verse…

A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.
Proverbs 15:1 (NLT)

A devotion…
The Way to Purity
My Utmost for His Highest
https://utmost.org/the-way-to-purity/

Initially we trust in our ignorance, calling it innocence, and next we trust our innocence, calling it purity. Then when we hear these strong statements from our Lord, we shrink back, saying, “But I never felt any of those awful things in my heart.” We resent what He reveals. Either Jesus Christ is the supreme authority on the human heart, or He is not worth paying any attention to. Am I prepared to trust the penetration of His Word into my heart, or would I prefer to trust my own “innocent ignorance”?

Purity is something far too deep for me to arrive at naturally. But when the Holy Spirit comes into me, He brings into the center of my personal life the very Spirit that was exhibited in the life of Jesus Christ, namely, the Holy Spirit, which is absolute unblemished purity.

A reading…
Matthew 15
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+15&version=NLT

Jesus teaches about inner purity

Matthew 15:18-20

Those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart….For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man…

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior walk with me. Liken my heart to Yours. Tame my tongue. Remove from me any and all anger towards others, no matter what. Even when provoked. Help me die to myself. Amen

Walking with love will change you

July 25, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Sin is naturally, unnatural. What do you think about sin? Do you? How often do you ask yourself why you do what you don’t want to. My list is long, but starts with anger, lust, and the thought of have I become to patient avoiding to much. One thing I do know is, a lone I’m stuck in my sins. Only in and through Jesus can I be what God created me to be. So I fight in each moment to stay connected to Him.

A verse…

So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good. The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin. I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.
Romans 7:14-15 NLT

A devotion…
Becoming Love
CrossCards: Encouragement for Today – July 24, 2018

https://www.crosscards.com/devotionals/encouragement-for-today/encouragement-for-today-july-24-2018.html

People don’t grow where they’re planted; they grow where they’re loved…

I still mess up more than I want. When I do, instead of beating myself up, I hear Jesus’ gentle and kind voice reminding me again to stop laying sod where He’s planting seed in my life. His reason is simple: God’s more interested in making us grow than having us look finished. He wants me to realize I’m just not quite there yet.

A reading…
Romans 7:14-25
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+7%3A14-25&version=NLT

Romans 7:25 NLT
[25] Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior help me fill my bucket with more love, so I can pour it out for the sake of others. Give me strength and courage to become love. May my actions reflect my belief in You. Help me to not just see the people who need love, but actually show them Your love. Thank You for Your loving-kindness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s prayer from today’s devotion.

Walking with conflict, but the right motives

July 24, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
We all want things to always be right (go the way we want), to have peace, to get along with everyone and be happy. They don’t and that just doesn’t happen. Problems and conflict are inevitable. But how we handle them is up to us. We control our intentions, our motives. How quickly we forgive. What we learn and how we grow.

A verse…

“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” 2 Corinthians 4:17 (NIV)

A devotion or two…
Why Conflict is Important to Your Story
CrossCards: Encouragement for Today – July 23, 2018
https://www.crosscards.com/devotionals/encouragement-for-today/encouragement-for-today-july-23-2018.html

The Bible is filled with stories of conflict and resolution — woven into the human experience. Perhaps one of the greatest stories is Joseph and his brothers, found in Genesis 37-50…

Joseph’s heart is tender and forgiving toward his brothers, and he speaks words that echo to this day for all of us who wonder if anything good can come out of the conflict we are experiencing: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives” (Genesis 50:20, NIV)…

…life isn’t conflict-free today. Nor will it ever be. As a pastor once said, “You are either just getting out of trouble, in trouble now, or about to enter trouble.” It’s inevitable. But so is God’s power! When we look at conflict in light of eternity, it takes on a different perspective.

His Nature and Our Motives
My Utmost for His Highest
https://utmost.org/his-nature-and-our-motives/

The characteristic of a disciple is not that he does good things, but that he is good in his motives, having been made good by the supernatural grace of God. The only thing that exceeds right-doing is right-being…

The great wonder of Jesus Christ’s salvation is that He changes our heredity. He does not change human nature— He changes its source, and thereby its motives as well.

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior. Lord, thank You for the promise of Jesus’ resurrection. What hope it brings my current situation to know there’s no conflict so difficult, no moment so dark, no situation so hopeless that You can’t bring good out of it. Today I choose to trust You rather than rely on only what I can see. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s prayer from today’s devotion.

Walking through the doorway to the kingdom

July 23, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
To those who have had no agony Jesus says, “I have nothing for you; stand on your own feet, square your own shoulders. I have come for the man who knows he has a bigger handful than he can cope with, who knows there are forces he cannot touch; I will do everything for him if he will let Me. Only let a man grant he needs it, and I will do it for him.”
The Shadow of an Agony
Wisdom from Oswald Chambers

A verse…

"God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him…

Matthew 5:3

A devotion…
The Doorway to the Kingdom
My Utmost for His Highest
https://utmost.org/the-doorway-to-the-kingdom/

Beware of thinking of our Lord as only a teacher. If Jesus Christ is only a teacher, then all He can do is frustrate me by setting a standard before me I cannot attain. What is the point of presenting me with such a lofty ideal if I cannot possibly come close to reaching it? I would be happier if I never knew it. What good is there in telling me to be what I can never be— to be…

A reading…
Matthew 5
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+5&version=NLT

Matthew 5:1-12 NLT
[1] One day as he saw the crowds gathering, Jesus went up on the mountainside and sat down. His disciples gathered around him, [2] and he began to teach them.
[3] "God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
[4] God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
[5] God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.
[6] God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied.
[7] God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
[8] God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.
[9] God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.
[10] God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
[11] "God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.
[12] Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior continue the work You have begun in me. Amen
