A Serving Shepherd!

'A Serving Shepherd.'
1 Corinthians 9:7. 
a)  Should not have to serve at his or her own expense. 
b)  Should eat the fruit of the vineyard that he or she plants.
c)  Should drink the milk of the flock that he or she feeds.
(Through this QT I read how God sees A Serving Shepherd)
PRAYER: For our serving Shepherds.
'Our Conscience Cleansed.'
Hebrews 9:14. 
a)  Think how much more the Blood of Christ
b)  Will purify our conscience from sinful deeds
c)  So that we can Worship the Living God. 
d)  For by the power of the Eternal Spirit,
e)  Christ offered Himself to God
f)  As a Perfect Sacrifice for our sins.
(This Second one brings us great relief: Our Conscience Cleansed)
PRAYER: For our conscience to be clean. 
To Pray for our serving Shepherds is an important Prayer for every True Believer to Pray. The Shepherd may be the immediate 'Head' of the natural family. The Shepherd may be the Senior Pastor of a large Church! Whoever is taking a "shepherd role" in our lives, in whatever way, needs our Prayers.

A Mother Of Nations And Kings!

'A Mother Of Nations And Kings.'
Genesis 17:16. 
a)  God said to Abraham of Sarah that He would Bless her. 
b)  God was going to give Abraham a son by her. 
c)  God would Bless her to become a "Mother of Nations".
d)  Kings of peoples would come from her.
(By this QT I find Sarah - A Mother Of Nations And Kings)
PRAYER: For the mothers in your Church and Family to be Blessed by God.
'A Real Intercessor.'
Deuteronomy 9:25. 
a)  Thus I prostrated myself before the Lord. 
b)  Forty days and forty nights I kept prostrating myself. 
c)  Because the Lord had said that He would destroy you. 
(This Second one reveals to me A Real Intercessor)
PRAYER: For real Intercessors to be raised up for the Churches and Nations.
Sarah was a Mother of Nations and Kings. Because of the miraculous circumstances of the birth of her baby, we can see that God really had a special plan for Sarah. She was to be a "Mother of Nations". God will always keep His Word to His Servants, even if it means miraculus circumstances. Human efforts fluctuate, we heard that in Church yesterday, but God never fluctuates! He always keeps His Word!

When Jesus Lingered!

'When Jesus Lingered.'
Luke 2:43. 
a)  It was at the end of a religious festival in Jerusalem. 
b)  Joseph and Mary were returning home.
c)  Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. 
d)  His parents did not know it. 
(This QT reveals to me When Jesus Lingered)
PRAYER: For God's Will to be done in our lives in His Perfect Time. 
'When God Does Not Remember.'
Hebrews 10:15-17. 
a)  Hebrews 10:15-17. This is what the Holy Spirit testifies to us:
1-"This is the Covenant that the Lord has made with us,
2-"I will put My Laws into their hearts,
3-"In their minds I will write My Laws
4-"Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more."
b)  Jeremiah 31:33. The Prophecy partially fulfilled. 
c)  Jeremiah 31:34. The Prophecy completely fulfilled. 
(This Second one teaches me about the time When God Does Not Remember)
PRAYER: To Thank God for the times when He does not remember our sins and lawless deeds.
Luke was a polite and friendly doctor, along with Apostle Paul, he thought of, and greeted, the Churches. Paul regarded him as a faithful co-labourer. It seemed that, when he was writing his Gospel, that he had a clear understanding of what he wrote. This QT inspires me to pray for faithful doctors who serve the Lord.

The Lord Blessed Them!

'The Lord Blessed Them.'
Psalm 107:38.
a)  The Lord Blessed them.
b)  Their numbers greatly increased. 
c)  The Lord did not let their herds diminish.
(This QT shows me more of the Grace of God: The Lord Blessed Them)
PRAYER: Thank God for His Blessing given to us and others.
'A New Covenant.'
Jeremiah 31:31-34.
a)  Jeremiah 31:31. It was to be a Covenant made by the Lord. 
b)  Jeremiah 31:31. It was to be with the people of Israel and Judah.
c)  Jeremiah 31:32. It was not like the old Covenant that the Lord made with the people of Israel. 
d)  Jeremiah 31:32. Even though God loved Israel so much, they broke His Covenant.
e)  Jeremiah 31:32. The Lord was like a husband to them. 
f)  Jeremiah 31:33-34. This powerful New Covenant:
1-God's Law in their minds. 
2-God's Law written on their hearts.
3-God giving them assurance that He is their God and that they are His People. 
4-Everybody will know the Lord, and not have to be taught how to.
5-God will forgive their wickedness.
6-God will remember their sins no more. 
(Through this Second one I understand more about God's Covenant Love: A New Covenant)
PRAYER: For God to help us to understand what it means to live under A New Covenant.
When God tells His People about a New Covenant He is very clear about it in His Word. It is not strange or mystical but it is easily understood. God wants to have a good relationship with them in this New Covenant. As we receive Christ as our Saviour and Lord we enter the New Covenant and we become partakers of the Grace and Promises of God.

God Esteemed Abraham's Wife!

'God Esteemed Abraham's Wife.'
Genesis 17:15. 
a)  God said to Abraham:
b)  "As for Sarai your wife, 
c)  "You are no longer to call her Sarai,
d)  "Her name will be Sarah."
e)  Sarah means: 'Princess'.
(Through this QT I can see that God Esteemed Abraham's Wife)
PRAYER: For God's Blessing on the wives in your family and Church)
'The People Began To Leave.'
Acts 28:25. 
a)  The people disagreed among themselves.
b)  They began to leave after Paul had made his final statement:
c)  "The Holy Spirit spoke the Truth to your ancestors
d)  "When He said through Isaiah the Prophet:
e)  'Go to this people and say:
f)  'You will be ever hearing
g)  'But never understanding;
h)  'You will be ever seeing
i)  'But never perceiving'."
(This Second one shows me when The People Began To Leave)
PRAYER: For the pastors and preachers to please God first in their ministries.
God told Abraham to give his wife a new name. This new name gave her esteem in the sight of God and people. Sarah experienced a new life as well as having a new name, she also experienced God's Miracle. When we read about Abraham and Sarah in the Bible, surely our own practical Faith will be enhanced.

A Pure Religious Habit!

'A Pure Religious Habit.'
Luke 2:42.
a)  When Jesus was 12 years old,
b)  His parents went up as usual
c)  To the Feast of the Passover at Jerusalem.
(This QT teaches me of A Pure Religious Habit)
PRAYER: That as Believers we will maintain the pure religious habits that are good for us. 
'The Greatest Ever Calling.'
Isaiah 6:8. 
a)  Isaiah heard the Voice of the Lord. 
b)  The Lord said: "Whom will I send? Who will go for us?"
c)  Then Isaiah said: "Here I am, send me.
(Through this Second one I find: The Greatest Ever Calling)
PRAYER: That we will respond in whatever way the Lord wants to The Greatest Ever Calling.
It is right to maintain the pure religious habits that are good for us. I remember the wise advice given by a pastor years ago. This he gave to every new Believer. Just four words: "Read, Pray, Come, Tell." These are pure religious habits that are relevant today. Read our Bible, Pray to the Lord, Come to fellowship (whether live or by media for those people who live in difficult circumstances), Tell other people about the Lord when the opportunity arises.

God's Evident Blessing On The Crops!

'God's Evident Blessing On The Crops.'
Psalm 107:37.
a)  They sow their fields. 
b)  They plant their vineyards. 
c)  They obtain a fruitful harvest. 
(This QT teaches me what it is when God's Evident Blessing Is On The Crops)
PRAYER: For farmers in your nation to turn to God, to be Blessed by God and be grateful to Him.
'They Tested God And Tried His Patience.'
Hebrews 3:9.
a)  The Ancestors of God's People
b)  Tested God,
c)  Tried God's Patience. 
d)  Even though they saw God's Miracles for forty years. 
(Through this Second one I desire to avoid the sin of God's Old Testament People: They Tested God And Tried His Patience)
PRAYER: That we will not test God and try His Patience.
Crops are very basically important, when a farmer's harvest is damaged the Nation is affected, there can be a food shortage of a certain kind. We should be praying, not only for the Salvation of the farmers, but also for their success. 

A Serving Shepherd!

'A Serving Shepherd.' 1 Corinthians 9:7.  a)  Should not have to serve at his or her own expense.  b)  Should eat the fruit of...
