>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.30.10

>You will keep Him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3

Pray
Father, Thank You for peace today. Not any peace, but perfect peace that only You can provide. I receive it as a comforting blanket for my heart, my mind, my spirit and my soul.

I choose to focus on Your word today and not my fears. Rid me of doubts about others You have placed in my life. Rid me of self-doubt that haunts me and hinders my growth. Direct my steps, guide and guard me with Your peace Father. In Your son Jesus’ name Amen.

Reflection
Do what God wants and receive all the blessings He has waiting for you. Welcome the peace within. Breathe in the simplicity of life as He has created it. Submit yourself to Him and the chaos you have and are sinking in will cease to exist.

Who wants to walk with me?

Love you all,

Natasha

>For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 

No man hath seen God at any time…
St. John 1:17-18

Prayer
Having faith in You Father do I believe in Your omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience. Never seeing You only feeling Your constant care and guidance, do I pray for continued faith that no matter what trials that I may face now or in the future, that You always show me even in small ways that through Your truth and grace that all is well and will be well. Amen. 

Reflection
God sent Moses and Jesus to deliver the foundation for our livelihood, survival, and growth of His kingdom. He sent many men and women to help remind us of His greatness and the many ways that our heavenly Father protects and guides us. 

We have the laws; we are equipped to seek, find, and know the Truth; and be filled with and reflect His grace. Are we doing our part as His stewards? Think about it. 

Love,

Natasha

>From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after
another.
John 1:16

Pray
Father, I choose to receive Your grace today, as You empower, guide and
teach me. I release my guilt and condemnation, and receive Your love and
forgiveness. Wash me clean and warm my heart that I may guiltlessly open
my arms to receive Your blessings for me. Amen.

Reflection
God favored me, in spite of my enemies. Our blessings keep coming in and
as we free ourselves from guilt and shame, and realize that God has
ALREADY forgiven us for our sins then we will clearly see the numerous
blessings flowing in.

If we spend our time self-inflicting pain and punishing ourselves;
putting the stakes in our hands and feet, whipping ourselves…we
overlook the gifts God has for us. Stop thinking you know God’s Mind and
focus on loving Him and doing good towards His children and yourself.

Love you all,

Natasha

>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.26.10

>For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
St. Luke 6:43

Prayer
Father You know the person You created, the person I am and the person I will be in the future. Let the fruit I bring forth help feed those in need and help grow Your Kingdom. Amen.

Reflection
Focus on being good by doing good. We may do something(s) that are “bad” but it doesn’t make us a bad person.

We must simply focus on remembering who and what we are as God’s children and work at constantly and consistently bettering ourselves.

Remember that the two most important commandments are to love God with all of our heart, mind, body and soul; and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

Love you all,

Natasha

>

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 

She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 

She seeks wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 

She is like the merchants’ ships; she brings her food from afar. 

Proverbs 31:10-14

Prayer
Father let Your sons grow worthy enough to find virtuous women and let your daughters grow to be these good, honorable women. Let us not rely on worldly views as to what’s acceptable or appropriate, but turn us to Your vision Lord. I humbly pray for You to cleanse me of my transgressions and uplift me to my proper place. Amen

Reflection
Today I picked up my Bible and said “wherever it opens and my eyes are drawn to, I will do today’s message”. Amazing how God is always working on and through us. But we must be open and honest to grow. 

Love,

Natasha

>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.22.10

>And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

II Kings 6:16-17

Pray
Father, open my eyes when I don’t see; when fear, doubt, pride, ego and anything not of You clouds my thinking where I see what I think I see.

When I think I’m outnumbered like the Syrian army and Elisha prayed for their eyes to be opened, show me Lord what I’m supposed to see about every person and every situation.

Humbly I say thank You in advance for this vision. Amen.

Reflection
Elisha could see God’s protection, plan, and path; but Elisha’s servant and the Syrian army were blind to the reality. Are you seeing the big picture and all the details? Ask God!

Love,

Natasha

>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.21.10

>And Elisha sent a messenger to him saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and your flesh will return to you, and you will be clean….

But Naaman was angry and went away…

And his servants came and said to him, My father, if the prophet had bid you do some great thing, would you have not done it? How much rather then, when he says to you, Wash, and be clean?

Then he went down, and dipped himself seven times…and his flesh came again like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
II Kings 5:10,11,13,14

Prayer
Father, cleanse me from my inflictions. Open my mind, eyes and heart that whatever messenger You send to deliver me that I am receptive to them. Amen.

Reflection
Pray to the Lord for openness to take in all messages as loving and guiding; rather than be closed and defensive- missing out on your blessings. Just because you don’t understand doesn’t mean it’s the wrong message.

Love,

Natasha

>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.20.10

>And Elisha said unto her…what has thou in the house? And she said, nothing but a pot of oil. Then he said, Go all over and borrow vessels from all your neighbors, even empty vessels…and pour oil into them and put aside the full ones….And it came to pass, when the vessels were full that she told her son bring me a vessel. And he said there are no more. Then she told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay your debt, and you and your children keep the rest.  II Kings 4:2-4,6,7

Prayer
Father, as Elisha increased this widow’s oil I pray that whatever known/unknown resource that I possess, You show me how to make use of it so that I may provide for myself and my family. As the widow did not question Elisha, I promise not to question or doubt Your (or Your servant’s) directions. Amen.

Reflection
We must be humble to see and willing to follow precisely what has been instructed of us.

Love,

Natasha

>Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11

Pray
Father, thank You for Your grace and favor on my life today. I know You have a fresh supply of everything that I need physically, spiritually, and emotionally today. Help me trust You more as I seek Your guiding light. I’m praying for more faith because I know that it displeases You when I don’t simply believe in You. Give me strength Father. Amen.

Reflection
Every day God provides for you. Both little and big, obvious and not so obvious. Be sure that when you do ask for blessings that you have your baskets ready to be filled with God’s bread!

>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.18.10

>The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day. Proverbs 4:18

Pray
Father, I know that You have a wonderful plan and purpose for me. I desire to be right and do right by You. I know that this is a constant struggle as I have to keep my mind and heart focused on You and Your commands, not the temptations of the world.

Show me Your ways and teach me to walk righteously before You. Keep my heart warm, and be the beacon of light to guide me down the right paths. Amen.

Reflection
Today, just as yesterday is a struggle to always do and say right, when life seemingly would be easier if we just did and said what we felt the moment we felt it.

We must be disciplined to listen to the small voice that guides and warns us; not the loud voice that tells us “just do it already”.

Before we speak we should pray for loving words.

Love you all!
