Step by Step

Step by step as life goes on

I get to know you better.

You give me wisdom, strength and joy

To follow you forever!

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. “ Romans 8:38-39

The moment you were born, God was with you. He held you in His loving arms and watched over you.

He wakes us up every morning and blesses us with rest at night. He restores our soul and gives us strength for each day.

Though we change throughout the years, God stays the same. He meets us where we are and helps us grow and get better.

As a loving Father, He holds our hand and helps us make the next step. He shows us the way to live, by teaching us patience and gratitude… one day at a time.

We are a part of His beautiful plan and nothing will ever separate us from His presence.

PRAYER:

Our Heavenly Father,

Thank you for watching over us.

Thank you for guiding us and showing us the right way to live.

May we give you glory forever.

May we honor you and give you praise.

We love you,

Amen.

Great is Your love

For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
    you alone are God.

 Teach me your way, Lord,
    that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart,
    that I may fear your name.


 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
    I will glorify your name forever.
For great is your love toward me…

You, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
    slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.


Turn to me and have mercy on me;
    show your strength on behalf of your servant;
save me, because I serve you
    just as my mother did.
 

Psalm 86: 10-16

The Lord is Your Refuge

Psalm 91

 

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,

    my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with his feathers,

    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

You will not fear the terror of night,

    nor the arrow that flies by day,

nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,

    nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side,

    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.

You will only observe with your eyes

    and see the punishment of the wicked.


If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”

    and you make the Most High your dwelling,

no harm will overtake you,

    no disaster will come near your tent.

For he will command his angels concerning you

    to guard you in all your ways;

they will lift you up in their hands,

    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

You will tread on the lion and the cobra;

    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.


“Because he  loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;

    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

He will call on me, and I will answer him;

    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.

With long life I will satisfy him

    and show him my salvation.”

STRENGTH FOR THE INNER MAN

Scripture:  Ephesians 3:14 & 16  “I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ … that He would x
The Apostle Paul was in prison when he wrote these words.  Yet he was not concerned with his own problems and discontent.  Instead, he was concerned for the needs of the body of Christ.  Because of these concerns, he bowed his knee and prayed this prayer for the Church that their inner man would be strengthened with might, power, and ability.  This can only happen by the work of the Holy Spirit as He comes to dwell personally within our innermost being.
