February 2

Old Testament

Exodus 15:1-16:36: It’s great to sing after the miracle but can you praise Him before the miracle?

Exodus 15: Look at the statement of the enemy in Exodus 15:9, but look at God in Exodus 15:10!!!!

They came to Marah which means ‘Bitterness’. They immediately complained when they came to a difficult situation instead of trusting God who just destroyed the enemy. But God turned that which was bitter into sweetness. Don’t be bitter, be better!!! Exodus 15:26 is a scripture that I pray.

These folks complain about every blessing and later on it will be their demise. If you complain you will remain!!!!

 

Psalms

Psalm 18:20-27: Right living and obedience are always rewarded by God.

 

Proverbs

Proverbs 6:12-15

 

New Testament

Matthew 21:23-46

 

February 1

Old Testament

Exodus 13:1-14:31: The devil, just like Pharaoh, will try to come back and attack again and sometimes again and again. Fear was their ruler because of their past. Fear is like a giant eraser; it will cause you to forget all the wonder of God’s power and what God did for you in the past.

God told them to go forward!!!! Because He had a plan and He was going to get the glory. Don’t let fear stop you from going forward. God has your back and your front.

 

Psalms

Psalm 18:13-19: After reading my notes on Exodus, look at Psalm 18:16-19. Now give the Lord a shout of praise!!!!

 

Proverbs

Proverbs 6:6-11: Don’t let laziness be a part of your life. Be industrious and productive.

 

New Testament

Matthew 21:1-22: God’s house is a house of prayer!!! Don’t forget our Saturday night church prayer from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Matthew 21:21-22 states a powerful principle. Believe when you pray and speak faith-filled words.

Old Testament

Exodus 11:1-12:51: In Exodus 11:3, even though the people of Egypt were being plagued, God gave favor to His people (Psalm 5:12).

Exodus 12 is a foreshadow of Jesus Christ to come to this earth as the Lamb of God. It is a prophetic word, but a mystery until the Holy Spirit revealed it (John 1:29; Acts 8:32; 1 Peter 1:18-21).

The Destroyer could not touch the house where the blood of the lamb was applied. God gave them the sacrifice but they had to apply it. God gave us Jesus as our sacrifice but we must accept Him into our life (John 3:16).

 

Psalms

Psalm 18:1-12: Wow!!!! Notice how God responds to His children when trouble confronts them, and they proclaim His protection and pray.

 

Proverbs

Proverbs 6:1-5: Proverbs 6:2 is a life-changing principle. Why? (Proverbs 18:21)

 

New Testament

Matthew 20:17-34: The mother of the sons of Zebedee wanted her sons to rule before they served. Many want to go straight to the top or to the pulpit before the serving. Jesus takes the time to minister a very important principle of the kingdom of God in Matthew 20:24-28. The following is a set of contrasting marks of the character of a good, godly leader:

  • Self-reliant, but not Self-sufficient
  • Energetic, but not Self-seeking
  • Steadfast, but not Stubborn
  • Tactful, but not Timid
  • Serious, but not Sullen
  • Loyal, but not Sectarian
  • Unmovable, but not Stationary
  • Gentle, but not Hypersensitive
  • Tenderhearted, but not Touchy
  • Conscientious, but not a Perfectionist
  • Disciplined, but not Demanding
  • Generous, but not Gullible
  • Meek, but not Weak
  • Humorous, but not Hilarious
  • Friendly, but not Familiar
  • Holy, but not Holier-than-thou
  • Discerning, but not Critical
  • Progressive, but not Pretentious
  • Authoritative, but not Autocratic

For a personal test and challenge, circle the words that best describe you. Be honest!!!! Ask God to help you develop the positive attributes that you couldn’t circle. Change does not come overnight but once you are open and truthful with God, change will come as you ask daily for His help.

 

January 30

Old Testament

Exodus 9:1-10:29: When the plagues came on the people of Egypt, look at God’s people. They were protected and blessed, while Egypt was being devastated. Put your total trust in God. Regardless of what comes on or in this nation, the true people of God will be protected!!! Pharaoh refused to humble himself before God. Pride always comes before the fall!!! (1 Peter 5:5-7)

 

Psalms

Psalm 17:8-15

 

Proverbs

Proverbs 5:21-23: God sees all we do, so do all that pleases Him in accordance to His Word.

 

New Testament

Matthew 20:1-16: This whole parable testifies of the awesome grace of God. It’s amazing that if someone who has their own business and wants to bless someone then people can get jealous, envious, and become mean-spirited. Sounds like the prodigal son versus the elder brother (Luke 15:11-32).

 

January 29

Old Testament

Exodus 7:1-8:32: It is really dumb to resist and stand against God!!!! Look at 1 Samuel 15:23 and Psalm 81:10-16.

 

Psalms

Psalm 17:1-7: What an awesome statement and testimony in Psalm 17:3. Look at Psalm 17:4 if you want to know how to stay out of the paths of destruction.

 

Proverbs

Proverbs 5:15-20: What a message for married couples and a very special word for me because Tava and I are celebrating our anniversary today!!!!! She is the love of my life, the greatest gift that God has given me outside of salvation!! She is awesome and a incredible helpmate, a true Proverbs 31 woman. I’m so in love that as I type this, my heart just beats faster and faster!!!! Thank you God for Your miraculous blessing and letting me marry way up!!!! (Ephesians 3:20-21)

 

New Testament

Matthew 19:1-30: Take your time reading this chapter. It is loaded with good stuff!!!!
