Daily blessings and prayers from Scripture.

Colossians 3:17 Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

John 14:26 The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Deuteronomy 11:18 Fix these words of Mine in your hearts and minds;

Psalm 139:5 You hem me in behind and before, and You lay Your hand upon me.

Philippians 1:21 Christ means everything to me in this life, and when I die I’ll have even more.

Exodus 14:13-14 And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today…The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”

May you rest in the assurance that the Lord will provide from His abundance all the resources that you need to perform the assignments He sets before you, leaving you only the need to choose to obey and to will to continue, even to the end of your strength and understanding, for only when you come to the end of your resources, and start relying on His, will His might and power be seen, and His glory be revealed, to His honor and praise. Ezekiel 45

May you not disregard the day of small beginnings, or the benefit of initial steps, for just as the water that flowed from the temple merely made the paving stones damp in the courtyard, as you keep following the path of the Lord's assignment and walking in His presence, moving in the power of the Spirit, obeying the word of God, you will find yourself going deeper into the life-giving truths of the Lord and bearing the fruit which feeds others and the leaves which bring healing, if you continue and do not falter or turn back. Ezekiel 47

May you readily accept others, whom you have not known, as having a part in the inheritance of God, receiving them and their children (for no one who goes warring can travel fast with children) wherever they settle distributing their allotment the same as anyone else. Ezekiel 47

May you confidently understand and realize with certainty that the Lord knows your name and is fully acquainted with and aware of who you are and what you are like. He has prepared an inheritance for you that will beautifully fit your needs and is perfectly suited to your preferences since He has never taken His eyes off of you. He has studied you in the way a person enjoys a work of art over and over, never growing tired of hearing a lovely song performed, or gazing on a beautiful painting, always finding joy and satisfaction in the smallest details – even so God enjoys you. Ezekiel 48

May you abstain from the sinful desires which war against your soul, since you are aliens and strangers in the world and represent a different King, that you may live such good lives among the pagans that though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God, your King, on the day He visits us. 1 Peter 2

May you submit yourself, for the Lord's sake, to every authority instituted among men, whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right, for it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. 1 Peter 2

May you live as a free person, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil. Instead live as a servant of God, showing proper respect to everyone by loving the brotherhood of believers, fearing God, and honoring the king. 1 Peter 2

May you submit yourself, as an employee, to your manager and employer with all respect, whether they are considerate or harsh. Bearing up and enduring unjust suffering for doing good, because you are conscious of God, is commendable, but there is no credit for enduring discipline for doing wrong. Instead, follow the example of Christ Who suffered for you though He did no wrong and spoke no lies, entrusting Himself to the One Who judges justly. 1 Peter 2

May you know that you can die to sins and live to righteousness because Jesus Christ, Himself, bore your sins in His body on the cross, and by His wounds you have been healed; for though you were like a sheep wandering away, now you have returned to the Shepherd and Protector of your soul. 1 Peter 2

May you walk in wisdom toward all who watch so that the conversation of your life-style may show the incorruptible beauty of God's holiness in your behavior, clothed with the imperishable loveliness of a gentle and tranquil attitude as you continue daily in humble submission to the Father's Word. 1 Peter 3

My child, I have not called you to a war which is fought with weapons of mass destruction, pursuing a scorched earth policy. Rather, I have engaged you in hostage rescue as you battle an enemy which uses human shields and employs child warriors who cannot determine right from wrong.
You cannot win My victories through weapons of the flesh, of the mind, or of the world, My precious one. You will, at times, have to follow steps that appear to lose the battle in the eyes of the other combatants, suffering loss, bearing shame, enduring scorn, for the true enemy is only defeated by the spiritual power I give you.
The strongholds of lies built by the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realms are pulled down by your example of humility of heart, meekness toward men, trust in Me, and the greatest of these, the same giving, yielding love toward your fellow man that I showed during My trial and on the cross, for there is no ordinance against these. Through this, men will see the loving nature of the Father Who accepts all who come in repentance.
The deceitfully conscripted ranks of the enemy's army will see the light of the truth that shines through you as you choose to die to self and will pull strength from My life, as it appears in you, to break free from the burdensome yoke of the fear of death which has held them prisoner.
So rejoice and give thanks, My dear one, for in your praise to the Father lies the victory for others.
