Daily Devotional for Sunday December 15, 2019
God speaking to us through acts of nature!!!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, I know this is an evil and sin-filled world I live in. Please, protect me, but don't let me be afraid. Let me be bold in declaring Your Truth to this lost world and not be afraid to speak up. Now more than ever I need Your strength to be the servant You have called me to be. Help me, strengthen me, and guide me to do Thy will. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: As we enter into the year 2020 in just a few days, the news will be dominated by the Presidential election in November. Currently, there is no Democratic nominee to face President Trump as that process is underway. I have shared how some nominees are trying to push their “faith” to attract people whose faith issues are critical to who they vote for. In a recent survey of the remaining Democratic nominees, EVERY ONE supports abortion and even worse, taxpayers funding abortion! This survey also showed that none would support protecting religious liberties, and would actually work to erase the advances made on this issue under the Trump administration. Since the largest faith group in the Democrats identify as “non-religious,” it is clear whoever the nominee is will be focused on those who are part of “fake churches” I have talked to you about and have rejected the Truth of God’s Word despite claiming to be a “Christian.”

***SINGLE MOTHERS CHRISTMAS!!! THANKS TO SOME FRIENDS WANTING TO HELP, WE CAN TAKE 10 MORE SIMGLE MOM’S WITH KIDS IN NEED THIS CHRISTMAS!!! As we are 10 days before Christmas, God has laid it on my heart to reach out and try to be a blessing to 30 single moms out there who can't afford to buy your children any presents this Christmas or have a nice dinner on Christmas day. Even though we still need to raise the final $42,000 to cover our December financial needs, God has blessed Liveprayer over the years because I have always been obedient to the Lord's voice and given into our own needs. The Holy Spirit has told me to give $200 to 30 single moms who otherwise won't have Christmas this year.
If you are a single mother and you have no way to provide some presents and a nice dinner for your children this Christmas, I want to help you make that happen. We will bless the first 30 single moms who contact us. You need to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and in the Subject line, put SINGLE MOTHER CHRISTMAS. I need your name, your address, and your phone number so that someone on my staff can follow up with you. I am asking you please, don't ask for help if you have other places like your church or other groups in your area that can help you provide for your children this Christmas. This $200 is ONLY to be used to buy your children a few presents and have a nice Christmas dinner! *If you know of such a mother with children, please forward this message to them! MAY THE LORD USE THESE EFFORTS TO SHARE HIS LOVE AND HOPE WITH A HURTING FAMILY IN NEED THIS CHRISTMAS!!!
In the book of Exodus, we read about the 10 plagues God sent on Egypt in order to get Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go. He turned water into blood killing all of the fish, a plague of frogs, gnats, diseased cattle, unhealable boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and the death of the first-born of all humans and animals who did not have marked doorposts. These were physical signs from God to Pharaoh and the Egyptians. Things that only God could do.
Fast forward to today. Over recent months we have seen thousands of birds falling out of the sky in many different locations...dead! We have seen tens of thousands, in one case hundreds of thousands, of fish washing up on shore in different locations...dead! We have seen massive floods in different parts of the world. Earlier this year 200 cows were found in Wisconsin...dead!
MY FRIEND, ANYONE WHO DOESN'T REALIZE GOD IS TRYING TO GET OUT ATTENTION IS DEAF, DUMB, AND BLIND!!!
Over the years, many scientists have sought to prove the 10 plagues God sent on Egypt could have never happened. However, as they sought to disprove the Bible, they ended up with very logical, scientific explanations how each one of the plagues could have happened exactly as the Bible describes them. While there is scientific proof the plagues could have occurred exactly as the Bible says they did, it still took God to set them in motion.
I know that there are many in the scientific community working around the clock today to find explanations for the dead birds, fish, animals, and floods. I am certain that at some point they will come up with a logical, scientific answer for each one. Again, it still took God to set them in motion! These physical acts that we are witnessing are clearly signs from God to get our attention!
So what is God trying to say through these natural acts we are witnessing? Obviously I don't know the mind of God, no man does. But I have no doubt that as these last days of human history unwind, as we move closer each day to the return of our Lord and see the final chapter played out, God wants to see "all come to repentance that none be lost." If nothing else, God is trying to wake people up that the end is very near and now is the time to repent and come to know Jesus as your Savior by faith.
I love you and care about you so much. I know most people are not paying attention. The dead birds, fish, animals, the floods, are simply acts of nature they observe but see no meaning in. I vehemently disagree. There are no coincidences with God. Everything has a reason, even though we may not fully understand that reason. People need to wake up, look up, and realize that there truly is a God who created the heavens and earth, who loves them, and wants to have an eternal relationship with them.
If you have never made a commitment of your heart and life to Jesus by faith, today is your day. It is no accident or coincidence you are reading this today. God is speaking to you as loudly as He is speaking to this lost world through these acts of nature we have been witnessing the past few months.
If you do not have 100% assurance that if your life ends today you will spend eternity with God, the Bible says TODAY is the day of salvation. Please take a few minutes, the most important few minutes of your life, and go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm Simply ask God to open your heart, read the words, watch the brief video clip, and make the most important decision you will make in this life, the decision to invite Jesus into your heart and life by faith. God is speaking to YOU, and I will be praying for you.
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
