Jesus Followers Reach Out to God When Fear and Anxiety Seek to Take Hold of Life Because They Have a Personal Relationship with the Universe's Creator MESSAGE SUMMARY: Your problems are not too big for God because God is faithful and Sovereign. Your financial issues, your debt, your health issues, and your sins are not too big for God. God is faithful, and He is trustworthy. Why not take, to God, all those things in your life that are creating your anxiety? In Psalms 9:9-10, the Psalmist encourages you to put your trust in God: “The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.". Also, Jesus tells us, in Mathew. 6:33-34, that you can put our trust in Him and not be anxious about your problems: “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”. Our God is a faithful God – reach out to God when fear and anxiety are taking a firm hold on your life.   TODAY'S PRAYER: Lord, I now take a deep breath and stop. So often I miss your hand and gifts in my life because I am preoccupied and anxious. Grant me the power to pause each day and each week to simply rest in your arms of love. In Jesus' name, amen.   Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 132). Zondervan. Kindle Edition. TODAY'S AFFIRMATION: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Evil Ways. Rather, I will walk in the Spirit's fruit of Goodness. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GOD   Did you know that wisdom and knowledge are a spirit, not just an idea or a perception of things? When we understand that wisdom and knowledge are spirits and that our father has created them to work with us and bring us to our maturity. We then realize that our father planned for our success through the spirits he has provided for us to bring us to our happy conclusion. When God said, "let us make man in our image," he also described their purpose and abilities to fulfill his purposes on earth. However, God did not put his children on the planet as orphans to struggle alone without divine assistance. We are not alone. The multiple layers of spiritual beings that God created to help us hit the target and fulfill our purpose are beyond our imagination. These are among the things we need to know about God. He is the master architect and understands perfect planning for the future. When he created you, he said, "it was good." I am convinced that our biggest enemy is not the devil but our religious preconceived ideas of who God is and what he has in mind for us. If you don't believe that God is on your side, as the Psalmist tells us, then you will live your Christian life with a dark cloud over your spirit, wondering if God is going to fulfill his promises or if he is going to fail you. The scripture refers to a double-minded man that will not receive anything from the Lord. The person with a double-minded attitude toward God is suspicious of the very one who has given him life, freedom, and peace. Today I want to talk about five things you need to know about God. God's not mad at you. God's not in a hurry. God a happy God. God will bring you to your maturity. God loves you unconditionally. If we can capture these simple truths and carry them in our spirit, it will revolutionize our journey in the Holy Ghost and the spiritual world God has given us.   YOU CAN GIVE HERE=http://www.georgewatkinsministries.com/help-us.html   WEBSITE= http://www.georgewatkinsministries.com/home-page.html   FACEBOOK=https://www.facebook.com/FaithProducerstv/   Faith Producers address: PO Bx 1006 Mt Vernon, WA 98273   FAITHPRODUCERS INTERNATIONAL PODCAST https://faithproducers.podbean.com/   INSTAGRAM DRGEORGEWATKINS https://www.instagram.com/drgeorgewatkins/

Welcome to La Jolla Pres Online Worship, we're excited that you're joining us! This fall we want to talk about what it looks like to live a life that has been formed spiritually by God. We are all being formed by something and God's greatest desire is that our lives be formed and transformed by the Holy Spirit. Join us as we discuss a framework for spiritual formation that will help bring transformation to our lives. Today Pastor Paul is preaching, and we're looking at Psalm 77. The author of the Psalm is troubled, because bad things are happening and the people are suffering. But by the end, the Psalmist remembers that God is faithful and helps form us through hard times. If you would like to connect with our church, you can find our website at ljpres.org. We hope to see lives transformed by a relationship with Jesus, and we strive to be a place where you experience and are able to express that transforming love of Christ.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,” sings the Psalmist, “I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. (NKJV) This is not just beautiful poetry. These were the fervent prayers of David (Psalm 23) as he tended to his father Jesse's sheep. At any moment, a lion or wolf could attack. Within the line, “I will fear no evil,” there's a cry for help and a statement of faith. We can all go to this prayer, just as David did, when the storms of life threaten us—filling us with fear for our lives and our future.  Our two guests this week faced such storms and found solace that God was comforting them through their most desperate times. Kelley Earnhardt Miller lost both of her parents prematurely: her father—the famous NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, Sr.—died in a car crash, and her mother from cancer. Through it all, she kept God at the center and found her calling in her caring for her little brother, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., not only as a troubled teen but as a successful adult. Hayley Arceneaux's childhood was hijacked by a cancer diagnosis, yet she found inspiration from the medical professionals at St. Jude's Children's Hospital where she was being treated. Her decision to become a physician assistant not only saw her return to St. Jude's to work with leukemia and lymphoma patients, but she also became the youngest American ever to orbit the earth. Both Kelley and Hayley found ways to dig deep into their relationship with God to fight through the hard times.   Links, Products, and Resources Mentioned: Jesus Calling Podcast Jesus Calling Jesus Always Jesus Listens Past interview: Sara Evans Upcoming interview: Dr. Elizabeth Stevens Psalm 23 NIV   Thank you to our sponsor: https://higherbond.com/podcast/   Kelley Earnhardt Miller  Dale Earnhardt, Sr. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Drive: 9 Lessons to Win in Business and in Life   Hayley Arceneaux's St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital Osteosarcoma tae kwon do Inspiration4 SpaceX Wild Ride: A Memoir of I.V.

And she said, ‘No, God loves you.'"  - Hayley Arceneaux “Those days going through cancer treatment, especially at such a young age, I had some really difficult days. But when I look back at that year, I just remember the beautiful moments and the good times and the other patient families and the staff that really felt like my family.” - Hayley Arceneaux “It was just wonderful being around these really supportive adults because it helped me focus on something that was beyond just my own sickness and my own pain. They really encouraged me to feel like I had a purpose there and to be able to give back and show gratitude instead of just feeling like the sick one.” - Hayley Arceneaux “It was about eight months from when I initially got the call to go to space before we launched, and I said a lot of prayers in those eight months for training, for my safety, and definitely for the space travel itself.

This week we are reading Zechariah 11, arguably the most enigmatic gloomy section of the whole book. The chapter's prelude (11:1-3) is a dark poem with the vivid portrayal of personified trees wailing over their own destruction. Shepherds and lions join in with the trees' lament, mourning their own loss of pasture and thicket. Lebanon's cedars and cypress burn while Bashan's oaks tumble in a cascade of destruction. The poem cries, “the glorious trees are ruined!” (11:2) in reference to the fall of the most prized trees in the Ancient Near East, Lebanon's cedars. David acquired cedar logs from Lebanon to build his palace (2 Sam. 5:11). Cedar paneling from Lebanon adorned Solomon's Temple (1 Kings 6:6). Even in the Epic of Gilgamesh, the mythic king risked his life to go to Lebanon's cedar forest and bring back the precious wood to his kingdom. To Zechariah's listening audience, the destruction of the cedar trees, forever associated with strength and glory, demonstrated Yahweh's superiority. If Yahweh is mightier than the stately cedar tree, he is greater than all things. When the Psalmist praised God's strength, he compared his voice to the cedar: “The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon” (Ps. 29:5).

Sometimes other people's lives look so perfect as if they never face challenges and everything is always going right. But that is simply not true. We all face hardships in life. If you are currently in a battle, you are not alone. So the question is not if you will be in a battle the question is “when you are in a battle, what will you do?” 2 Chronicles 20 reminds us that the first thing to do is seek the Lord. The second thing to do is to acknowledge God and pray and the next thing to do is cry out to God. Verse 9 says, “If calamity comes upon us, whether the sword of judgment, or plague or famine, we will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us.” Do you know that you serve a God that listens? In Psalm 116:1-4, we hear the words of the Psalmist as he cries out to God in the midst of his own personal battle. “I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord: “Lord, save me!” You can hear the absolute distress in the Psalmist's voice. He is in utter despair. There is a lot of despair in the world these days. We can find ourselves in our own times of utter darkness and hopelessness. When disaster comes and it feels like life is caving in. In those moments when you are tired and weary and you feel like you are at your wits end. When you are not sure where to turn and you feel as though there is no way through your circumstances or no way out from under the weight of life, remember to cry out to God. Not too long ago I was experiencing a really big battle in my life. I felt confused, anxious, worried, and weary. I was desperately seeking to hear the Lord's voice. Psalm 25:4-5 became a Psalm that I recited on a daily basis, “Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” Sometimes in the battle it will feel like a fight just to cry out to God. You can be tempted to turn to other things to distract you or to numb the pain. But remember to cry out to him. As a follower of Jesus, you have the privilege of a personal relationship with God and 24/7 access to him.

Readings: Sirach 35:12–14, 16–18 Psalm 34:2–3, 17–19, 23 2 Timothy 4:6–8, 16–18 Luke 18:9–14 Jesus draws a blunt picture in today's Gospel. The Pharisee's prayer is almost a parody of the thanksgiving psalms (see for example Psalms 30, 118). Instead of praising God for His mighty works, the Pharisee congratulates himself for his own deeds, which he presents to God in some detail. The tax collector stands at a distance, too ashamed even to raise his eyes to God (see Ezra 9:6). He prays with a humble and contrite heart (see Psalm 51:19). He knows that before God no one is righteous, no one has cause to boast (see Roman 3:10; 4:2). We see in the Liturgy today one of Scripture's abiding themes: that God “knows no favorites,” as today's First Reading tells us (see 2 Chronicles 19:7; Acts 10:34–35; Romans 2:11). God cannot be bribed (see Deuteronomy 10:17). We cannot curry favor with Him or impress Him—even with our good deeds or our faithful observance of religious duties such as tithing and fasting. If we try to exalt ourselves before the Lord, as the Pharisee does, we will be brought low (see Luke 1:52). This should be a warning to us—not to take pride in our piety, not to slip into the self-righteousness of thinking that we're better than others, that we're “not like the rest of sinful humanity.” If we clothe ourselves with humility (see 1 Peter 5:5–6), if we recognize that all of us are sinners in need of His mercy, we will be exalted (see Proverbs 29:33). The prayer of the lowly, the humble, pierces the clouds. Paul testifies to this in today's Epistle as He thanks the Lord for giving him strength during his imprisonment. Paul tells us what the Psalmist sings today—that the Lord redeems the lives of His humble servants. We too must serve Him willingly. And He will hear us in our distress, deliver us from evil, and bring us safely to His heavenly kingdom.

All around the world, people of faith keep putting their hopes and futures in the hands of politicians, many of whom are nothing but wolves in sheep's clothing. We keep voting, and things get better for a short season, then get worse than they were before. Perhaps we put too much trust in our worldly leaders. The Psalmist, King David, reminds us “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.” (Psalm 146: 3-5) Today, guest host, Jim Calhoun, explores this concept of trust.

Psalm 23 is one of the most popular and beloved psalms in the Bible. We often hear it recited at church or during times of mourning, yet it's more than just a beautiful, poetic stanza. It gives us valuable insight into the character of our God. For example, it's important to note the word that some English translations use in verse 6 and how different that it is from the original Hebrew. Psalm 23:6 says: "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever." David says that goodness and mercy “shall follow me all the days of my life”, but the word ‘follow' is a bit misleading. The Hebrew word for ‘follow' is ‘radaph' (רָדַף) which means, “To pursue, to run after, to chase” or literally, “to hunt you down”. It is first found in Genesis 14, when Abram (Abraham) finds that his nephew Lot has been kidnapped. Abram assembles his own army of 318 men and “pursued them unto Dan” (Genesis 14:14). The word ‘pursued' is ‘radaph' (רָדַף). Just as Abram (Abraham) hunted the kidnappers down and brought them to justice, the Holy Spirit is saying through the Psalmist that we can be assured that God's goodness and mercy will hunt us down as well.If you'd like to follow Jay Allen on Facebook, click here: https://www.facebook.com/jayallenliveYou can listen to more encouraging podcasts from the KCBI Podcast Network here: https://www.kcbi.org/podcasts/

JOSEPH'S TROUBLES – Genesis 39

In John 16:33 Jesus is encouraging His disciples: “I have said these things to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but take heart; I have overcome the world.” Ps 105:16-23 summarizes the anointing of Joseph and the purposes of God in his trials and affliction. God had prescribed a testing period for His servant before His words of prophecy were fulfilled. While the Psalmist had the benefit of Joseph's full story arc to understand the plans of God for his servant, Joseph himself had no such advantage. What provided Joseph the reassurance of faith necessary to sustain him through such rigorous trials? It was the word and promise of Yahweh. Divine revelation by way of dream had revealed to Joseph that God would exalt him to rule (37:5-9). Like Esther to come, God's purposes in raising up His servant were not to glorify themselves, but to glorify God as an instrument of His saving grace. Joseph's troubles were preparing him for this very thing. This chapter repeatedly emphasizes the fact that despite the circumstances, “ The Lord was with Joseph.” how difficult it must have been during these years of Joseph's life to maintain the confidence of the Psalmist in 119:46 “I will speak of Your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame.” The account of Joseph mirrors the calling of believers today. We are called to endure our own trials by faith, knowing by the Word and promises of God that we are seated in heavenly places with Christ (Eph 2:6) because Christ Himself was raised from the dead and seated at the right hand of the Father far above all rule, authority, power, and dominion above every name that is named (Eph 12:20-21). For those in Christ, we partake in the Messianic ascension of Jesus Christ prefigured by the calling of Joseph unfolding in Genesis 39.

Not Righteous Professing Christians Are "Whitewashed Tombstones" - Pretty on the Outside but Dead on the Inside MESSAGE SUMMARY: A righteousness, that comes from your being in communion with the Holy Spirit, is not like a professing Christian who is really just a "whitewashed tombstone" -- pretty on the outside but dead on the inside. Rather, followers of Jesus are called to live righteous lives, as we are instructed by the Psalmist in Psalms 37:39: “The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.". Also, Paul tells us in Romans 1:17: “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.'”. In Acts 1:8, Jesus tells us, as His followers, that: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.". In Matthew 5, Jesus tells us, as His followers, that we are different and blessed; and these blessings flow from your living a righteous life in Him. Allow the Holy Spirit to create in you a clean and pure heart.   TODAY'S PRAYER: Lord, I acknowledge that I prefer to ignore and deny my pain and loss. I struggle with seeing how resurrection life can come out of death. Grant me the courage to pay attention to what you are doing, and to wait on you — even when everything in me wants to run away. In Jesus' name, amen.    Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 114). Zondervan. Kindle Edition. TODAY'S AFFIRMATION: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Evil Ways. Rather, I will walk in the Spirit's fruit of Goodness. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

Psalm 34:4-7 (NIV) I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. What does it mean to be radiant? The Psalmist says “those who look to Him are radiant, their faces are never covered with shame. As we get older, some would call wiser, we also get our views blurred by man's measurement of self. Often we can become so consumed with appearances, responsibilities and expectations that we forget that we have actually been freed from all of that. What would our response be if someone paid off all of our debt, took away all of our stress, took away any reason for us to ever worry again. I suspect we would look radiant. We might even look a little crazy… Wouldn't living with that realization do something to those closest to us, wouldn't that kind of freedom be contagious. Listen again to this passage and view yourself from the writers perspective. I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. How does it feel to carry no shame. How does it feel to know that God saves you from all your troubles. How does it feel to know that the angel of the Lord encamps around you. How does it feel to know that God will delivers you. Let's make those feelings the reality that we live from today, and everyday. Father, thank you that you promise to deliver me from all my fears. Thank you that you say my face should never be covered with shame. Thank you that you deliver me from all my troubles and that your angels camp around me. Help me to be radiant, shining the grace that you give me to others. As above, so below.

MEM – THE TRIAL OF DECEIT – Psalm 119:97-104

The 13th stanza in the great acrostic Psalm introduces the theme of the sufficiency of God's word for the trial of deception with the Hebrew letter 'mem'. This passage also introduces a rare word translated 'meditation' used only 3 times in the Bible, once in Job (15:4), & twice here (verses 97 & 99). The notion of meditation is promoted these days by false religions and therefore it may be helpful to highlight its Biblical context. 'Strongs' concordance associates the word with reflection, devotion, and prayer. While these spiritual disciplines certainly characterize the heart of Psalm 119's author, perhaps a fuller sense of Biblical meditation is gleaned from the form and context of this entire song. Ps 119 is structured to illustrate and reinforce the proper orientation toward divine revelation The song's length, recurring parallelisms, detail, and acrostic order all presuppose a disciplined and delighted singer. For the Christian, meditation is not suspending ones God-given reasoning faculties to place him in a spiritually suggestible state, rather it is a disciplined and delighted attentiveness to the covenant revelation of God. The Word of God, in its superior authority, sufficiency, and perfection commands a singular devotion. The Psalmist models this discipline and delight for us in this great song as we surpass 100 references to God's self disclosure of His righteousness, holiness, and truth. As we follow the author's train of thought and passion for the scriptures, may we grow in our own affections for the inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and eternal Word of God.

At Home with the Lectionary

In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 24 (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Luke 18:1-8; 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5; Psalm 119:97-104; Jeremiah 31:27-34.We begin with Jesus' parable of the persistent widow and discuss how his story upends our preconceptions about God's accessibility and invites hopeful, trusting engagement in prayer. We consider Paul's timely guidance for staying focused and faithful, rooted in the Scriptures. We talk about the transformative impact of memorizing Scripture and the Psalmist's love for God's life-giving words. And we end with a lot of questions about Jeremiah's words.  Notes:There are a lot of useful resources out there for memorizing Scripture. There are apps where you can record yourself saying passages, "games" where you can fill in the blanks, sites where you can type out verses, all sorts of techniques that you may find useful, but it doesn't have to be complicated. Here's what I've found to be helpful:--Select a passage you personally want to learn.--Consider the reality of your daily life. Sometimes memorizing a longer ambitious passage is feasible, but regularly working on various disparate passages (e.g. focus on a smaller single-verse passage every two weeks) may be more doable.--Write or print out the passage. Laminate it if you love office products (like I do!) or find a way to jot it down and carry a notecard around with you.--Look for times during your day (or night!) when you can recite the passage to yourself. Repeat it audibly. Try to say it without looking. Go back and check yourself. Keep repeating it. --Note "anchors" within the passage that can help stay grounded in the flow of thought - these may become especially meaningful to you as they pair with memories from your daily life at this time.--Every time you review your memory work, add a phrase or sentences. --Soon, the "new" phrases that you had to check every few words will become "old" familiar ones, tucked away in your memory, as you continue to build.--That's it! Like any muscle, it will grow with use. At first, you may find it takes two weeks to learn a verse, but as you proceed, it will become easier.--Some passages (like Psalm 119) may be easier to memorize, because they've been designed with rhetorical "anchors." For instance, knowing there is a cohesive thought centered around four verses makes it easier to memorize. Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn.

Do you carefully examine what you follow? Are you even a follower at all? Hi, I'm Mike Henry Sr. with Follower of One. Thanks for joining me again today on the Follower of One Podcast.  Today, we're talking about being led and we've been doing this series through Psalm 139 to enjoy God and the passage wraps up today with these two verses that are pretty famous. I'm reading from the New American Standard Psalm 139:23-24. "Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way."  You've probably heard those before. The Psalmist wraps up this Psalm with this request that God would search us, that he would know our hearts. Why is that a question? Well, I think it's a question because it's easy for us to fool ourselves. It's easy for us to follow something other than God. We can pursue the appreciation of others. We can pursue money and power and strength. We can pursue glory, trying to be famous or trying to be well known. When we pursue anything that comes from anyone other than God, our heart is not pure.  And he says here, "Try me and know my anxious thoughts." We want God to know what's going on in the recesses of our mind so that we can be his fully.  We tend to  listen to ourselves. We tend to let our minds guide us. And our mind is part of our flesh. It's part of our fallen nature. That's why it has to be renewed.   And that's how our body gets transformed. That's how our life gets transformed is when we renew our minds.  That's from Romans 12:2.  And so today our challenge as Christ followers is to turn to God. Ask him to search you. Ask him to show you what you need to get rid of that's in your heart. What are you anxiously thinking about? Or what are you worried about?  "See if there is any hurtful way in me," can also be "offensive" or "grievous" or "wicked," ways that are opposite of God. The New Living translation says, "Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life." God would you examine our minds and our hearts and show us how you want us to live and what you want us to do in our workplaces and with the people that we come in contact with today?  Thank you so much for being a marketplace minister. Let's enjoy God. Let's trust him to examine our mind. Let's trust him to guide us and follow him. He's who we want in the lead. Not ourselves.  If we let God lead us, he will use us in the lives of the people that we interact with. He will use you to make himself visible to the people that you work with, or the people that you're around today.  Let God transform you. Ask him to show you what you need to do, and then do it. The ideas that we get while we're praying. If they line up with scripture, they're God talking. Let's figure out a way to do them. Let's try and find a way to do what God says. If we listen to God, but we don't do what he says. Are we really being led?  Today let's pray for the people around us and let's ask God to search us and know our hearts, to try us and to sift out those anxious thoughts and show us how we can join him in the everlasting way. He can get rid of our wicked and hurtful thoughts. He can show us what those are and transform those in our lives. Thanks for being a marketplace minister. Thank you for listening to this series.

When you think of the idea of being predestined, do you consider that makes us robots? Hey, I'm Mike Henry Sr. with Follower of One. Thanks for joining me again today on the Follower of One Podcast. As we continue to enjoy God, let's read verses 15 and 16 from Psalm 139.  "My bones were not hidden from you when I was made in secret, when I was formed in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in your book and planned before a single one of them began."  That's from the Christian Standard Bible. I mentioned predestination or predetermination. I have not prepared to talk in great detail about this. But this very clearly states that God thought of us. We're God's idea and not just mankind, but each of us individually. The Psalmist is very specific here. And either the Bible is wrong or we learn about God in this passage. If God knew us before we were born, before we even became to be, if our days were written in his book and planned before a single one of them began, that makes God very powerful. He knows all of this. And yet he still carved out this space where we're free to choose. Today you and I can choose to follow him or not. We can choose to listen to his Holy Spirit and do things for other people so that Jesus might become visible. Or not.  We have an opportunity to take part in this grand, rescue that's taking place in our globe. God is saving a people for himself and the people who are alive today are potential prospects in that salvation. We have the opportunity to live as if we're saved because we are; because we have the holy spirit living in us. And then we get to take part in this temporal life with all these other friends and we can help them see Jesus too. This is a big responsibility when we consider that all of our days were written in God's book and planned before a single one of them began. It doesn't take us out of the game. It makes us pay attention to our original orders, our original papers.  What were you created to do? We were created to know God and love him. We were also created to be a husband or a wife or a father or a son or daughter. We were created to be in a family and in a community and to make a difference. You were ordained into your present job, into your present situation. And you can choose today to take that role and do something with it. We've been given this opportunity that God of the universe handcrafted us each for our present situation.  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says "Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." Read the context, check out that passage. Our present situation is God's will for us in Christ, Jesus. How powerful is that?  We get to take part in whatever God has for us, from right where we are today. We don't have to get somewhere else or be somewhere else.

Where were you at the beginning? Hi, I'm Mike Henry Sr. with Follower of One. Thanks for joining me again today on the Follower of One Podcast.  "The beginning of what?" You might ask, because we all have to ask. We've been talking about, enjoying God in Psalm 139.  Today, I want to read verses 13 and 14  "For you formed my inward parts. You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." We've been going through Psalm 139 to just enjoy God a little. And today I want to talk about how God is the one who started us. He's the one who put us together. Before our beginning, God was involved. It's not some accident that you came about. The Psalmist states here very clearly, that God is the actor that brought you into being. He created you and he created you for a purpose and he did it in a particular way.  And he formed you. He put you together. "For it was you who created my inward parts," it says in the Christian Standard Bible. "You knit me together in my mother's womb." We were assembled by God. I think it's interesting because often I consider other people as just an accident or just someone else, some other thing. But God was actively involved in creating every one of us. He put us together. He knitted us together. And therefore the Psalmist praises God, and we should praise God, because we are fearfully and wonderfully made.  God still is in control. He still is in charge. And he is the one who fearfully and wonderfully made us. His works are wonderful. And deep down inside, we know it. Our soul knows it very well.  Today, I want to challenge us as marketplace Christians to remember that we were handcrafted by God. And as a result that doesn't exclude us from being involved in the world. No, we were made for this world. We were made for the people who we come in contact with every day. In Acts 1:8, Jesus said we will be his witnesses. And I don't think that was a command. I believe that was a statement of fact. You were assembled by God. And if you follow Jesus, then your job is to glorify God. Its to show off what life looks like as a Christ follower in whatever occupation you have, and in whatever situation you're in .  Today. I'm praying for you.  Thank you for being a marketplace minister and thank you for considering how your faith can make a difference in the world. Our job is to show off life following Jesus. If there's anything that we can do to help you with that, you can contact me mike@followerofone.org, or you can join our online community at https://community.followerofone.org, where you can connect with other people who are in similar occupations in similar life situations, and we can help one another glorify God in our daily life. Thank you for being a minister and for making a difference. Celebrate God a little bit this morning, or whenever you hear this. Enjoy him and then let's get to work. Let's punch in and go to work, glorifying him. Thanks very much.

In Psalm 84 the Psalmist writes, "How lovely is your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts. My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord. My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God." Where does our soul make its home? The answer to that question will greatly impact the human experience in the moments of our lives. Today we look at what results for a soul that longs after God.

The permanence and stability of God's Word gave the Psalmist something to cling to in the middle of affliction. It was something to anchor to when everything else was falling apart. The Word of God had become his delight. When the Psalmist is going through affliction, the stability of God's Word keeps him from perishing. Praise the Lord, we can always trust God's Word that never fails!

(Presented by Lisa Bishop) I have a question for you. How are you doing? No, really, how are you doing? What are the things that are most consuming your thoughts? What is a worry, concern or uncertainty, maybe a disappointment, unmet need, longing or loss that is weighing on your mind? If you were to do a check-in with your heart and your soul, what would you notice? Are you weary, tired, stressed out, angry, or depleted? Are you feeling overwhelmed or overworked? In the busyness of life, it is important to take time to do a self-check and get a gauge on our souls. Because let's face it, life can be hard, and it is easy to get depleted. How do you experience renewal, refreshment and supernatural strength in your life? How do you receive sustenance in difficult times and grow in your ability to experience the divine power and presence of God? I want to remind you of the power of prayer. Now before you say, “I already know about prayer,” my question is, how consistently do you practice the power of prayer? I read a quote that said, “If you want your life to experience divine power, it needs to be a praying life.” Far too often it can be easy to bypass the transformation that comes from prayer because we are prone to put it on the back burner. But we can experience the divine presence and power to greater degrees in our lives. If you think about it, what are the reasons we don't make prayer a daily habit? Being brutally honest, we don't really believe that prayer works. Or since God already knows what we are thinking, why do we need to pray? And all too often the old “I am too busy” can become a barrier to a praying life. If you think you are too time crunched to pray, you need only to look to Jesus who modeled prayer and whose life points to not only the necessity of prayer but the practice of prayer in the busyness and demands of life. In Luke chapter 5, we see that crowds of people came to hear Jesus teach and to be healed of their sickness, and then it says, “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed” (Luke 5:16). In the midst of his ministry, healing and teaching, Jesus points us to the power of prayer. In the hustle and bustle of life it is so easy to be on autopilot, going at warp speed, that we neglect to take the time to slow down and get away from the crowds and pray. Retreating from the crowds doesn't necessarily mean going to a mountain or rural place, although that sounds really nice. It may simply be waking up early in the morning before the demands of the day kick in. Sitting in a quiet place in your house or apartment, even if for a few minutes before you start your day, to come before the Lord and in the quietness of his presence, pray. Of course, prayer is not reserved just for morning times. There is no one right time of day to pray, it is something you can do throughout your day. When you spend time in prayer, you make space to hear from God and for the Holy Spirit to guide your steps and transform your heart. Having a vibrant prayer life is a significant spiritual practice among followers of Jesus. Prayer positions you to pour out your heart so that you can be filled up and experience deep connection with the Lord. In Psalm 116 the Psalmist says, “I love the Lord because he has heard my appeal for mercy. Because he has turned his ear to me I will call out to him as long as I live” (Psalm 116:1-2). I love the reminder all throughout the Bible that God inclines his ear towards us. He listens intently. He delights in hearing your voice. Throughout the years I have struggled to pray. Especially in times where I felt distant from God, it was really hard for me to want to talk to him. Sometimes I didn't even know where to begin. And then I read a book that suggested starting each day with the Lord's prayer. In the gospel of Mathew, Jesus gave his disciples and us a model for prayer. Even if you start with 15 seconds a day,

The Psalmist prayed for the Lord to search him. As David prayed, we must also pray that the Lord search us and reveal what is there that God is not pleased with.
