‘Comfort, O comfort my people…’ (Isaiah 40:1)

As we approach Remembrance Day pray that all who have know the horrors of conflict in their lives may know the comfort that Isaiah speaks of here – pray that they and their loved ones will know the peace of the Lord in their hearts at this time.

‘…fear not, nor be dismayed…for the Lord will be with you…’ (2 Chron. 20:17)

What a comfort and blessing to know that the Lord is with us at all times and that in Him the strength and courage we need, no matter what comes our way.

‘Every day I will bless you…’ (Psalm 145:2)

Every single day God pours His blessings upon us. Take time now to reflect on this and give Him the thanks that He is due.

‘Whatever you do, in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus…’ (Col. 3:17)

Nowadays we all seem to lead busy lives, often commenting that there never seem to be enough hours in the day or enough days in the week. Sadly a consequence of this can be that we neglect spending time in communion with our Lord. This is perhaps not intentional, but life just seems to get in the way at times and before we know it we’re spending less and less time in devotion with our Lord.

The writer of Colossians gives us an answer to that problem – say and do everything in the name of the Lord! So take time to reflect on this and then see if so doing does make a difference in our lives.

‘His delight is in the law of the Lord…’ (Psalm 1:2)

Whenever we think of the law of the Lord we perhaps instinctively think of the 10 commandments given by God to Moses. Yet to do so perhaps reduces the law of the Lord to nothing more than a judicial process, particularly if we don’t look at these commandments properly ie that the first four are to do with how we relate to God and the remaining six, how we relate to others. When we do this we discover what lies at the heart of the law, as Jesus Himself taught His disciples. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind – and love  your neighbour as yourself. Can we delight in this?

‘In Christ we who are many form one body…’ (Romans 12:5)

Through our Lord we are all children of the one true living God yet we live in a world where these is so much disharmony and hostility towards others. Pray that we might learn to live together in peace and harmony and that we all do our part within the body of Christ to help make that happen.

‘If you continue in my Word then you are my disciples…’ (John 8:31)

Let us pray that we may continue in God’s Word every day, that we allow it to lead us and guide us through all that we do and that we live it in our lives as best we can.
