TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA

Dear friend,

Today I was tempted with something that looked and sounded really good. Anyone who knew what it was would probably have agreed. There was really nothing wrong with it in the grand scheme of things. It’s something in fact people do all the time. But there was in fact a problem. A big one.
It’s not something the Lord wanted me to do. So because He is Lord, I knew what to do. I didn’t do it.

Friend, temptations aren’t always bad things. They can be good things. BUT WHEN IT’S SOMETHING THE LORD DOESN’T WANT US TO DO, WE STILL NEED TO SAY NO. Not because there’s anything inherently wrong with whatever it is. But simply because it’s not the Lord’s will for us.

Need to say no to something? Or someone? You know what to do. Do the will of the Lord. Don’t fall for the temptation of saying no to Jesus. Say no to the temptation and yes to the Lord!

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:14

TODAY’S DAILY INSPIRATION

“”And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

A friend and I talked a good while today about the needs of homeless people. I have a huge heart for the homeless, but I also have a huge heart for all people. I told her plenty of non-profit organizations and churches and ministries provide practical material items for the homeless like food, clothing, job training, counseling, shelter, medical care, hygiene kits, etc. But the most important thing which is so often lacking is the sharing of the Gospel message and help in finding and forever following the Lord Jesus Christ.

A few hours later, the thought came to me how easily so many of us seem to think of certain groups of people like the homeless when it comes to loving, giving, providing, and serving. But friend, this world is FILLED with people in need. In need of material provision, yes. But most importantly in need of the Lord Jesus Christ.

WE ALL NEED JESUS. And those of us who follow Him need to tell the whole world about Him and not limit ourselves to those most obviously in need. The rich also need Jesus. Doctors, nurses, janitors, homeless shelter staff, prisoners, famous people, friends, family, teachers, students, foreigners, tourists, locals, waitresses, dog trainers, big people, little people, sick people, healthy people, and on and on it goes. THIS WORLD NEEDS JESUS, so please let us get busy telling the world about Him!

TODAY’S 365 BLESSINGS

365 BLESSINGS is a devotional book I recently wrote that will soon be available in print by the grace of the Lord for the glory of the Lord! 

Blessing #185-186

“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4:30

Two blessings in one verse. Perhaps more. These are the ones I see. First, we are not to grieve the Spirit of God who dwells in His followers. When God gives us warnings, He warns us out of His love for us. How blessed we are God loves us, warns us, and desires us to please not hurt and grieve His Spirit! Second, the Lord seals us with His Spirit when we turn from our sins and put our faith in Christ as Lord whereby we devote our lives to God and His ways. Oh, to be sealed – marked, branded, declared His – by the Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Savior of the world. We are made HIS! Hallelujah, thank you Lord, hallelujah, Jesus, AMEN!

TODAY’S THE CROSS DEVOTIONAL

WHEN LOVE IS LITTLE

“Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!…” Psalm 96:9

Today a far-away friend with a disability who doesn’t have an easy time getting around took the love, time, and care to go into a massive store and search for a product for paralyzed doggy Mr. Simeon I needed. Such a little act of love it seemed, but to me it was big. Even little things matter, you know. Even when it comes to love. Don’t you think the same is true when it comes to the Lord?

Perhaps we may think our acts of love, praise, worship, and service to the Lord have to always be REALLY BIG and SUPER SIGNIFICANT. But when we love someone, don’t the little acts of love matter as much as the big ones in the sense they are all expressions of our love for that person?

Let’s be careful in loving and worshiping the Lord to not leave out either one. Let’s show Him in little ways and in big ones how much we LOVE, HONOR, REVERE, and ADORE HIM!

TODAY’S SERVING JESUS IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Cor. 15:58
READY FOR A HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT? The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart one day that I needed to study the word “BE” in the Bible. Not a typical study, is it? Why the study? The Lord isn’t only concerned with our outward actions. He’s also concerned with our hearts, attitudes, motives, thoughts, character, etc. He tells us in His Word what to do. He also tells us what to BE. In our everyday lives this is crucial. It’s also vital in our service work for Him, isn’t it? Your assignment if you’re led is to look up, study, and put into practice the following.

BE PATIENT
BE STILL
BE HOLY
BE STRONG
BE COURAGEOUS
BE KIND
BE PEACEABLE
BE GENTLE
BE GLAD
BE MERCIFUL
BE TENDERHEARTED
BE COURTEOUS
BE STEADFAST
BE DILIGENT
