Daily Devotional for Saturday November 17, 2018
Three words from God to YOU today!!!
(Romans 8:28, Galatians 6:9)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, with the great technology advances of the day comes great dangers. Satan will always try to use anything to “kill, steal, and destroy” the lives of people. I pray that you protect me today from falling into bondage to internet pornography or anything else the technology of today can use to destroy my life. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!
***LIVEPRAYER TV IS BACK!!! We will be re-launching the Liveprayer TV program with a Thanksgiving Day special broadcast LIVE from 7p-8p EST! Our regular broadcast schedule will begin that following Monday, November 26th, airing every Monday thru Friday LIVE from 11p-Midnight EST! As we have since the program began, we will be taking phone calls from the viewers on every program with questions, comments, and prayer requests.
You will be able to watch the Liveprayer TV program LIVE on ALL major streaming platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick and others, as well as on the Liveprayer.com website. We will also archive every program so that if you can’t watch it live, you can watch it on your schedule ON DEMAND.
Another great blessing is that the TV program will initially on cost only $2,000 a monthly, as opposed to the tens of thousands of dollars each month it cost the ministry to air on traditional TV. That monthly cost will go up only as the viewership increases, meaning if we have to pay more each month it is because we are attracting a larger audience that will also bring new friends to help support Liveprayer. So please be praying about your sacrifice each month to insure that this additional monthly cost for a critical part of the Liveprayer ministry is covered.
After doing our LIVE TV program on various non-Christian stations and networks around the nation since 2003, I am humbled and most thankful for the opportunity to reach thousands and thousands of new people each night. I know that as each year passes, more and more people are growing up having never been to church, having never been in a home environment where God’s Word and faith in Jesus was practiced and honored. Pray with me that each night lives will be impacted for Christ, hope is given to those who are at a desperate place in their life, and lost souls will come to faith in Jesus Christ!!! AMEN!!!
I want to ENCOURAGE YOU today! I don't know exactly what you are facing in your life this moment, I don't know what your problems are, what trials and tribulations you are experiencing in your life right now. But I do know this, everyone reading these words today is going through something. No matter what it is, I want to give you a message right from the throne room of God...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
I am not going to tell you that all of your problems will be solved by the time you go to bed tonight, chances are they won't. I am not going to tell you that everything will work out exactly the way you want it to, chances are they won't. I am going to tell you, however, that God will provide the answers to whatever your problems may be. I am going to tell you, however, that God will work everything out. God promised us in His Word, "...and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
God told me to tell you today...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
If you are battling with an illness in your body today...DON'T GIVE UP! If you are battling with your finances today...DON'T GIVE UP! If you are battling with your marriage today...DON'T GIVE UP! If you are you are battling with your employment or schooling today...DON'T GIVE UP! If you are battling with your children today...DON'T GIVE UP! If you are battling with an addiction today...DON'T GIVE UP! NO MATTER WHAT YOUR BATTLE IS TODAY...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
My friend, God loves you. He knows what you are going through in your life today. He has not abandoned you, He has not forsaken you. In your darkest hour you can be assured that God is right there with you. When everyone else has turned their back on you, when everyone else has run away, when nobody is left to stand with you...GOD IS STILL THERE! On the night He was betrayed, Jesus saw His disciples run from Him, deny even knowing Him, yet He was never alone because God was with Him. Even when those you love the most leave you, Jesus is there because He promised to "never leave you nor forsake you."
God told me to tell you today...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
I love you and care about you so much. I want you to know that I am standing in the gap for YOU today. I am standing with you and believing God for your needs to be met. You may not see your answer today, or tomorrow, or next week, or next month, or even next year. God's timing is not our timing, but God's timing is always perfect. He is never a second too early, or a second too late. DON'T GIVE UP!!!
The children of Israel would have never seen the Promised Land had Moses given up. He wandered in the desert for forty years...FORTY YEARS! If God leaves us in the desert for forty minutes we are complaining! We can learn from Moses today that no matter what we are going though in our life, if we will continue to trust God, keep our faith in the Lord regardless what the circumstances may be, He will deliver us and meet our every need. The key however, is that you DON'T GIVE UP!!!
I will be praying for you today. Praying that the Lord will give you His peace no matter what you may be facing in your life at this moment. Praying that God will give you His strength today. Paul wrote to the church at Galatia to "...not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." As you wait on God to answer your prayers, to meet your needs, continue to be faithful. Remember that as we are about our Father's business, He will be about our business!!!
God is saying to you that no matter what you are going through today...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." (1 Corinthians 15:58)
In His love and service,
Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,
