Ephesians 4:1-3

S ~ Ephesians 4:1-3

O ~ We are to act as God's chosen people, we are to humble, gentle and patient with each other.  We are to love each other.  We are to live in peace with the Holy Spirit guiding us.

A ~ I am the daughter of the King of Kings and I need to act like it.  I need to love with His love by not letting someone's negativity or faults bring me down.  I am to be at peace with others and to love as He loves me.

P ~ Father God thank you for all the blessings, the love and for sending your comforter the Holy Spirit.  Thank you for the peace you will give me when I place my faith and trust in you.  Amen

Ephesians 3:20-21

S ~ Ephesians 20-21

O ~ If we get out of the way and let God work through us He will accomplish more than we ever could.  He has a master plan for all of us and that plan came to be through His Son Jesus Christ.

A ~ Move myself out of God's way.  When I give something to Him I should not try to take it back.  When I do take it back I am saying God I don't trust You to take care of the situation.  Take my need to control out of the equation and let God do His work through me.

P ~ Father God help me to not get in your way.  I know Your way is not my way and I need to wait on you.  Thank you Father for all you have done and for all you are going to do.  Amen

Ephesians 3:19

S ~ Ephesians 3:19

O ~ God's love for me cannot be measured!

A ~ Accept this love and all that God has planned for me. 

P ~ There is a song that says it best.

Fill My Cup Lord
Like the woman at the well I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy;
And then I heard my Savior speaking:
"Draw from my well that never shall run dry".

Fill my cup Lord, I lift it up, Lord!
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul;
Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more--
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole!

There are millions in this world who are craving
The pleasures earthly things afford;
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.

Fill my cup Lord, I lift it up, Lord!
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul;
Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more--
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole!

So, my brother, if the things this world gave you
Leave hungers that won't pass away,
My blessed Lord will come and save you,
If you kneel to Him and humbly pray:

Fill my cup Lord, I lift it up, Lord!
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul;
Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more--
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole!

 For I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power.

Ephesians 3:14-15

S ~ Ephesians 3:14-15

O ~ Everything that happens is a part of God's plan.

A ~ I am learning that God's plan is always better than my plans.  I need to keep God at the center of the plans I have, seek His will and His direction instead of going ahead without His guidance.  Jeremiah 29:11 tells us, "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

P ~ Father God thank you for always have my best interest at heart.  Thank you for leading and guiding me down the path you would have me trod.  Thank you for blessing my life with a wonderful Christian mother and for her dedication to instilling Your Word in my life.  She is with you now and I just know you welcomed her home with wide open arms telling her "Well done."  Thank you for saving my soul, Amen.

P ~ Dear Father thank you for this awesome opportunity you have given me.  I know that I am not to be afraid as the Holy Spirit will guide me and give me the words you would have me speak.  Thank you for the gift of salvation, a gift that I did not earn and a gift I can never repay.  Thank you for your awesomeness.  I ask that you guide me daily, Amen.
