Decisions and Petitions

Ps 18:1 – I WILL love You, O Lord, my strength.
Ps 18:3 – I WILL call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised.
Ps 18:49 – I WILL give thanks to You, O Lord, among the Gentiles, and sing praises to Your name.

Ps 19:14 – Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Here in Frankfort, God made us one CORKER of a beautiful day. I mean, He just out-did Himself, and I told Him about it, too, in the assembly tonight. On top of keeping the whole universe running for one more turn of a planet, He gave us a gorgeous blue sky, and as I walked home from work, there was a hawk gliding so close. . . so close. . .

I don’t know if I would have appreciated so fully God’s wonderful creative grace if He hadn’t made it rain, slow steady drizzle, for three days straight before that. So, Father, thank you for preparing me to see You.

We don’t deserve THIS! What a Father we have, that can’t help but give us amazing presents. Who will never stop caring for, polishing, refining, teaching, loving His people.

In Saving Private Ryan, Captain Miller grabs Private Ryan by the webgear and pulls him down to the ground where Miller is dying. Almost inaudibly, Miller growls, “EARN THIS.” You see, Miller’s Rangers paid a dear price, an awful price, to rescue Private Ryan. He didn’t deserve it. He’s just another guy. Grace came to him, and it changed his life.

Grace has come to me, and I know I can never do enough, never fix myself enough, never tell enough people about Jesus, to “EARN THIS.” In the world, that would leave me without hope, because even Private Ryan didn’t earn it; couldn’t earn it. But he spent the rest of his life making himself worthy of it.

Eph 4:1 “Live a life worthy of the calling you have received. . .”
Php 1:27 “Conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.”
Col 1:10 “Live a life worthy of the Lord. . .”
1 Thess 2:12 “Live lives worthy of God. . .”
2 Thess 1:11 “We constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of His calling. . .”

When God gave us His Spirit, He made us worthy. Let us remember what a price was paid, that we might be made worthy, and let us strive to live up to that calling.

HE WHO HAS CALLED US IS FAITHFUL, AND HE WILL DO IT!

in HIS love,
Nick

  1. Hi Nick 🙂 Like your blog too! Let’s all always remember to thank the LORD for all the things He has given us, and more so, for His grace and unconditioning love 🙂

  2. .Hi, seeing as you accept anonymous blogging I thought I would send you this info about online gambling from a guy at work. His blog features em hold limit no poker saitek texas and he has made a fortune from online gambling.The Online Casino Startup BonusWhen choosing a trustworthy online casino there are many factors you need to consider. Just because one of the great number of online casinos existent today has impressive graphics, games and offers a wide diversity of bonuses, it doesnt mean its a fair and licensed one. Of course, such cases are rare, and, since today there are hundreds of reputable virtual casinos one can choose from, the most important criteria when deciding which one to play at is what they offer.The first bonus you can get when you first open an account at a casino is the sign up bonus most casinos offer, an encouraging bonus of at least $25, but it may often be higher than $500. Some casinos even match your first deposit, meaning they double it, for free.Many casinos also offer hundreds of dollars worth bonuses for new players and, if you’re the one who brings other friends to the casino, things are even better than that. Most casinos offer a refer a friend bonus and, the more friends you have, the more fortunate you will get. For each friend you refer to the casino, you will get up to $1000, for each friend that they refer, you’ll earn up to $300 and, furthermore, for each person that your friend’s friends refer, you will earn up to $100. Once you are confident that particular casino is a reliable one, bring as many of your friends as you can to the casino and you’ll have all the reasons to enjoy their games. The only thing you need to pay attention to afterwards is to handle the money wisely and not risk it all in a single bet, however confident you may be.And most casinos give you an alternative to this. They offer you the chance to practice for free at first, and they also give you money to do that, so, it’s practically free and you have nothing to lose. When you find the right casino you’ll know it from the first time you play there. From then on, they will remind you how important you are to them by giving you special bonuses every month. These bonuses are somewhere around $100 and even higher and they reward you for being a loyal customer. These casinos also offer the so called comp points that accumulate throughout the course of the games you play and at certain points they turn into real money and, depending how long you have been playing at that casino, you may win lots of money.The most important bonuses casinos offer are the jackpots and prizes you can win at their games. Casinos reward players with millions of dollars each day for their gaming skills. Tournaments and regular casino games are most profitable for gamblers. Only one progressive jackpot, for one single game of slots, for instance, can be of over $ 2 million. And it’s only a matter of seconds and a bit of luck to win it.Most casinos don’t need a special occasion to give bonuses. They offer bonuses for the players third and fourth deposits, for being loyal to the casino, or just for being at a table at a certain time. So, it’s only a matter of finding the right casino and from there on, bonuses will keep coming to you. The only problem is that if you don’t have a proper money management you won’t treasure what you win, it will go away as easily as it came. We may all want those bonuses, but do we know what to do with them and how much of it we should risk in our next bet?A guy at work recommends the following Casino Gaming Sites, (the trick is to sign up to each and get your startup bonuses) once you have played each one for a while you will get to know which one suits your style of play and which is therefore the most profitable one for you.as follows:CASINO CLASSICPLAY65.COM888.COMCASINO-FOR-MESPORTING ODDS CASINOPARTY POKER.COMALSO CHECK OUT THESE COOL ONLINE BINGO SITES – PERFECT TO KEEP YOUR MUM/GRANNY HAPPY!!BINGO BOUDOIRBINGOLICIOUSTWO FAT LADIES BINGO.
