Why are the sexual deviants upset with Mr. Rogers? and, Eternal goals over temporal goals!
DAILY DEVOTIONAL SATURDAY FEBRUARY 4, 2023
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, give me the discernment I need today to recognize the traps of satan. Help me to see with spiritual eyes and hear with spiritual ears YOUR Truth alone. In the name of Jesus...AMEN! *Salvation message from Ground Zero: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqZ9oaqJNJg
***DAILY DEVOTIONAL BLOCKS! Praise God! sATAN is a liar and a loser! By the grace of God it looks like all of the blocks many of our friends with Yahoo and AOL email accounts have been dealing with since the first of the year will be cleared up by the end of the weekend. IF YOUR DAILY DEVOTIONAL IS NOT IN YOUR INBOX, MAKE SURE IT ISN’T IN YOUR SPAM FOLDER SINCE THAT IS ANOTHER ISSUE WE FIGHT ALL THE TIME OUT OF OUR CONTROL. Also, never forget the Daily Devotional is always on the Liveprayer.com homepage each day. On top of our normal monthly operations, this block has forced us to spend apx. $2,500 we hadn’t budgeted to cover our techs overtime the past 4 weeks. Please pray one of our friends will be able to help us with a special gift to cover this unexpected expenditure. GOD IS GREAT!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: I have a great TV Nugget for you today. The “LGBTQxyz++1-3” activists are losing their mind over Mr. Rogers. Who is Mr. Rogers? I am referring to Presbyterian minister and beloved TV host Fred McFeely Rogers. Now why would these activists for sexual perversion and the mental disorder where people don’t know what gender they are be upset with Mr. Rogers? Well, 40 years ago he had a song on his popular program for children that states, “boys will be boys and girls will be girls.” IT WAS IN NO WAY A POLITICAL SONG, IT WAS JUST STATING A BASIC BIOLOGICAL FACT! Clips of that song from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood have gone viral on the internet in the past few days and the left has lost their collective mind. The serious issue at stake is for you to understand that NOTHING, ZERO, not even a simple harmless song from a children’s TV program 40 years ago can be allowed to oppose the prevailing narrative of the day. Any attempt to do so will be met with swift and ferocious blowback to silence anyone who dares to publicly declare an alternative narrative. They seek to bully into silence those who do not agree with their perverse worldview or challenge their beliefs that they force upon our culture. All I can say is God bless Mr. Rogers. 20 years after his death his simple message of basic truth is still out there!

***FEBRUARY FINANCIAL UPDATE: We ended January with a shortfall of $35,000. So far we have covered $5,000 of that shortfall leaving the final $30,000. I am praying that in the first week we can clear up that shortfall and begin working on the $55,000 we require for our February ministry operations. That is a total of $85,000 by the end of the short month of February to go into March with all of our ministry operations current. OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!
The Bible teaches us to “give according to our ability to give.” For some that may be $10 or $20. For others it may be $50 or $100. Still others it may be $200, $500, $1,000, $10,000 or more. GOD WILL BLESS YOUR GIFT NO MATTER WHAT THE AMOUNT!!!
ALSO, DON'T FORGET A GIFT OF $1,800 COVERS ONE DAY OF MINISTRY AT LIVEPRAYER!!!

We all get so bogged down in the day-to-day activities of life, that we can lose sight of the big picture. One of the goals I have each day is to help you stay focused on that "big picture." The ultimate "American dream" for many is to win several million dollars, buy a huge home, new cars, quit your job. But what do you do after that? That becomes the big question. When you have all of those things that you ever dreamed of, when you have accomplished all of the things you strive for then what?
In today's scripture, we read about a man who could have easily been living in the year 2023. Obviously very talented. Obviously very goal oriented. He had his plan, he followed it through, and he achieved everything he wanted. But soon after that, the Lord says, "You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you."
"And he told them this parable: "The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. He thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.' "Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." ' "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?' " (Luke 12:16-21)
You see my friend, this Devotional in no way is meant to tell you that your goals are not important. It is in no way meant to tell you that you should not strive to have the best things that this life can offer. There is nothing wrong with that at all. What I am trying to get you to hear today is that you MUST keep your goals prioritized and in perspective. To simply let your goal be "get all I can now" is a bad goal.
The Bible says, "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose his soul?" That of course is for an unsaved person who wants everything, but eventually must realize that there is an eternal life when this one is over, where all of those things you accomplish and gain in this life have no meaning. That is just as true for the Christian. While we work on our earthly goals, we MUST keep focused on, and never lose sight of, our eternal goals.
Those things that we gain in this life will be gone the instant our life is over and we pass into eternity. At that point, the ONLY thing that matters is our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I have said it often, and will continue to remind you of this fact. The ONLY thing we take from this life into eternity is our personal relationship with Christ.
That is why I harp constantly on our intimate, daily walk with Him. We do that through the Word and through prayer. At that instant when this life ends, that personal relationship with Christ is all that will matter. With that being the case, why do we spend so much time on striving to accomplish things in this world that will one day be meaningless, and so little time on our walk with Christ which one day will be all that we have?
I love you and care about you so very much. Each day I do my best to share my heart with you and allow God to pour through me meaningful things that will help you in your daily life. My challenge for you today is to not get so focused on the goals of this world, that you lose sight of your eternal goals. Work just as hard on your relationship with Christ as you do in your day to day work here on earth. Don't let the things of this temporary world consume you to the point that you miss the eternal goals we all should be working on.
We need to be careful. The media, our culture, pushes us daily to "have it all." We get so consumed with that message that we forget we can never have it all, unless we have Jesus. The greatest goals that we can have are not our earthly goals, but our Heavenly goals!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
