S=15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
1st Timothy 1:15
O=. We are all sinners & without Jesus in our lives we are nothing. I believe GOD could have sent absolutely anyone to die on the cross & they would have done it, but when you send your son it really means something… It truly is the ultimate sacrifice and the only way I see that you can truly thank him is to give him 100% of yourself. Praise him, honor him & live our lives to tell others about him!
A=. I just have to die to myself everyday & make it my goal to lead my family in a way that is pleasing to GOD!
P=.father I thank you for sending your son to die on the cross for us & I pray that you keep me grounded and focoused on you daily.
Y=. 7 Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
Jeremiah 17:7. Trust is the key word for me in this whole verse. Because it truly is about trust. Trust in the lord, trust in yourself. That’s why they call it faith because you have to trust that the way your living and the things you believe in are for a much greater pourpose than we can ever imagine!
S=5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
1st Timothy 2:5&6
O=.that you can see in the bible time and time again where Christ is the answer for everything. We can come to him at anytime for anything. He gave himself up for that exact reason.
A=. To always remember that no matter what the situation big or small, dumb(to me), it doesn’t matter I can take it and lay it down in front of him & he will provide the answer for the situation.
P=. I pray that I keep focoused on you in my daily walk & remember that you are always there for me & I thank you for that. Father just knowing that you laid your life on the line for me so that you can be my direct link to GOD is so awesome & I pray that I teach my kids about you and they just grow hungry for you more and more every day. Thank you. Amen
Y=. 23 He said to them, You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father
33 Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing.
S=9 They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience.
1st Timothy 3:9
O=. To the unbeliever who has no faith it is to difficult to see where we as believers get our faith, but through my faith I will show the unbeliever that there is a higher power and his name is Jesus Christ! Once they see where your at In your life and when it comes time to give them your testimony of the miracles that are happening in our lives I think they will have no choice, but to believe!
A=. I can do this by keeping my faith just as Christ kept his faith knowing that he was dying for a reason. He could have easily fell to the temptations of the enemy. If I just remember these things my faith should lead me through my day to day life
P=. Father I pray that I stay in your word daily. The seasons will change the grass and flowers will fade, but your word will never die & I thank you for that. In JESUS name AMEN!
Y=. 18 But someone will say, You have faith and I have works. Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
James 2:18. I think that my faith is probably the single most important thing because without it why read the bible why go to church why tithe. If you don’t believe in it it’s not going to work! also in romans 4:16 it says That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring–not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all,
S=16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
1st Timothy 3:16
O=. From start to finish Christ was glorified by us & for us. All the things Jesus did and went through are huge teachings on how to lead our lives as Christians each day trying to become more & more like him.
A=. Just on a day to day basis try to become more Christ like knowing that there will be struggles, but I know that each day is a new day & our GOD is a forgiving GOD.
P=. I pray that you keep me hungry for more of you every day & help me to teach my kids how to grow & want to become more like you. Thank you for all the great things you are doing in our lives. Amen
Y=. No real scripture came to me on this one, but I do feel an overwhelming scence of understanding of how important it is to truly die to ourselves. Not just sometimes, but daily & it’s amazing that if you keep focoused on it that it’s easy to stay on the narrow path that GOD is sending you on, but at the same time it’s very easy to get off track. I remember one time pastor said your Christianity can be like your check book. If your off a few pennys a day you don’t think much of it, but pretty soon your way off and it will be a major struggle to get back on track.
S=8 for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 1st Timothy 4:8
O=. I really like this verse because it’s something I need in my life & that is to be healthy. Not only in mind & body, but especially in Christ! When it speaks of having some value I believe that it means for me to take full advantage of what Christ has laid in front of me I have to be in tip top shape. To be in shape spiritually would be an awesome feat & I know that through Christ I will get there in body & spirit!
A=. I’m going to make a conciese effort to make the right decisions as far as eating goes & really listen to what GOD is speaking to my heart. I know where he’s leading me to I just need to train my feet to take me to the promise land that he has provided for me & then give him all the glory
P=. Father I pray In your name that you give me the strength & the wisdom to do right by you & to fight off any attacks that the enemy sends In all areas of my life not just this one! Thank you father for this awesome group of friends that you have put together and I know that this group is a powerful group that you have great plans for. I pray that we are all accountable for each other & that we keep each other on the narrow path that leads to your kingdom GOD! We praise you God & we hold you in the highest respect. In Jesus name. Amen
Y=. In Ecclisiasties 5:19 it says. And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life—this is indeed a gift from God.
I love this verse becaust to me it just speaks of everything I believe in & that I should live by. I need to be in a lot better shape than I am now & when I get there not if, but when I do I will be able reap the benifits of all the gifts that YOU have provided for me.
In first kings 9: 4&5 it says… Let me stop and say that I read this verse a few times and thought no this is not what your speaking to me. Is it? So here’s the verse…
4 “As for you, if you will follow me with integrity and godliness, as David your father did, obeying all my commands, decrees, and regulations, 5 then I will establish the throne of your dynasty over Israel forever. For I made this promise to your father, David: `One of your descendants will always sit on the throne of Israel.’. God told me I was being to literal and to step back and think on it for a minute and so I did.
What I got was that Isreal is my calling in life and that if I will dilagently follow him and die to myself on a daily basis if not hourly basis than he will give me what he has already set aside for me & I believe it could be a business that could become a family business to be passed down to Bridger & Grady and so on & so on!
S=8 But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1st Timothy 5:8
O=. As the man of the family I believe it is my job to serve & protect as well as provide for them. If we are not living by faith then it will become very hard to do these things not to mention the fact that my kids are going to do the things that they see me do & if I don’t honor Sara & give her the respect she deserves they will see that & follow suit. When you live for Christ you have absolutely nothing to hide & nothing to worry about. In my opinion it is not physically possible to be the head of your household, lead your family in a direction that will fulfill your family & not be living for Christ! With out Jesus on our lives we are dead men walking!
A=. I’m going to wake up everyday, praise GOD, ask for his guidence, spread his word & make it my absolute top priority to live for him first! If he’s at the top of my list than there is no way I can fail.
P=. Praise you GOD. PRAISE YOU GOD. PRAISE YOU GOD. Lord I pray that I seek you first and get the guidence from you so that I know how to lead my family in a fashion that is suitable to you. I pray that Sara & the kids will see that I am trying very hard to become the man I need to be to help create a family that strives for you and seeks out other Godly influences. I ask for all of this In Jesus name. Amen
Y=2nd Corinthians 9:10 says For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity s in you. 2nd Corinthians 9:10. I think GOD Is saying to me that he has provided me with all the tools to succeed and to plant the seed ie him into my family & household. He gives it all to us we just need to reach out & take what is ours.
S=. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1st Timothy 6:12
O=My Observation is exactly what it says! If we want what God wants us to have it will be a fight and not just a once in a while fight. A constant battle to stay true to ourselves, it’s much easier to go down a set of stairs than it is to climb them and the same is true with our faith. I believe that sometimes we give the enemy to much credit, because when it’s true that he comes at us from time to time I think it’s simply life and the things that we surround our selves with! So like the scripture says Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. We need to surround ourselves with good Godly witnesses and confess and speak out our faith to them because we never know who needs a word from God
A=. I will try and apply this to my life by being more bold and making a concentrated effort to surround myself with people of like interests and to not try to just fit in to the crowd, but instead be proud to know that Jesus died for me! He died for all of us and knew all of our names and did what God called him to do by faith, but without his work his faith would have been for nothing and the same goes for us….. We can have all the faith i n the world, but if we don’t live it out, what’s it for
P= Father God In pray your will be done in my life and the life of my family and friends and I pray that through me people will come to know you and those that already know you will become more bold by Your strength and by Your might that we will all gain courage to be so bold as to have no fear of what you call us to do because you are there for us
Y= In Isaiah 41:10 it says So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. First Timothy 6:12 is what I call you to do and Isaiah 41:10 is one of the promises I make to you so Fear not what the World puts in your way and fight the fight that puts Me above everything and everyone else and see what doors I will shut and what doors I will open for you. I’ve called you to be in a place amongst greatness and as it says in My word
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. I am the one who gives you this strength!
