Today Reminder - 13 August 2012 (Know)

My prayer for you for today is that you will live knowing that in you lives the Spirit of God and that you will honour Him by following His commandments, in Jesus name.

1 John 3:23-24
And this is His commandment: We must believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. Those who obey God's commandments remain in fellowship with Him, and He with them. And we know He lives in us because the Spirit He gave us lives in us.

Know - We must believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.  Returning from a lovely holiday spend in the beautiful and ever impressive Kruger National Park here in South Africa, one can’t help to think how truly blessed we are. Seeing the animals living in their natural habitat living under God’s care brought back an old verse:

"That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn't life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to Him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? (Matthew 26)

My dear friend, how precious is life? Life is but a moment in the vast eternity that we will spend with our Lord. Live today and love one another for tomorrow might be too late. Why do we worry when God loves us so much? Placing our trust in Him should free you from worries and bring you closer to Him so that you can live in fellowship with God. Why do we have so little faith in thinking that we will be able to solve our problems by worrying about them? Let the Holy Spirit that dwells in you guide you to a worry free fellowship with God. Let Him show you how to place your burden on Jesus so that He will defeat the enemy in your life just as He did on the cross. Believe in Him for He believes in you…

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
