Give and God will supply!

Scripture reading for September 5th:  Philippians 4, Psalm 28, Proverbs 24

Key Scriptures:  Philippians 4:17-20 “Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit.  I have received full payment, and more.  I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God.  And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.  To our God and Father be glory forever and ever.  Amen.

Paul closed his letter to the Philippians thanking them for sharing and sending offerings to help him.   They were one of the only churches to do so at this time.  He had received their gift and expressed his thanks, stating that they were “a fragrant offering” and they pleased God as well.  He also shared that their gifts would increase the fruit of souls won and reached and that would also credit to their account.  In turn, they could count on God meeting all their needs through Christ’s unfathomable riches!  Amen!

Faith Confession:  I choose to be generous and give to the work of our Lord, tithes and offerings.  I am thankful for fruit that will bring glory to our Lord Jesus.  My God will supply all my needs if I am generous towards His kingdom.

Proverbs 24:3-4 “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”

Dealing with deliverance!

Scripture reading for March 18:  Luke 11, Psalm 55, Proverbs 24

Key Scriptures: Luke 11:24-27  “When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, I will return to my house from which I came.  And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order.  Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there.  And the last state of that person is worse than the first.”

Jesus instructed His disciples concerning casting out of evil spirits.  He told them that they had the power in His Name to cast them out of an individuals.  He told them that the evil spirit would seek another home in someone else, but would ultimately try to return.  If the delivered person failed to fill his ‘house’ with the Holy Spirit, the evil spirit would return and find other even worse spirits and that man would be in worse bondage than before.

Faith Confession:  Lord, give me wisdom to help those bound by evil spirits to find deliverance in Jesus’ Name and to fill their ‘house’ with Your Holy Spirit.

Proverbs 24:3-4  “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
