8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, what
ever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice.(What do people see from you?) And the God of peace will be with you.
Thanks for Their Gifts10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
14 Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.(WE MUST C
ONCERN OURSELVES WITH OTHERS!!!) 15Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; 16 for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid more than once when I was in need. 17 Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account.(Give and it shall be given unto you)Luke 6:38 18
I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable(Able to be agreed on; suitable) sacrifice, pleasing to God. 19 And my God will meet all your needs(not according to your works, but...) according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and
Thought provoking questions-
1.Are we rejoicing ALWAYS?
2.Is our gentleness evident to EVERYONE?
3.Are we giving to others from our hearts with God intentions?
Father God touch whomever reads this. Please forgive any sin of mines that would prevent this prayer from being heard. May they get a complete understanding of Your Word. Lord open their hearts to receive what they read here and to be doers of the Word. God anoint their mind to conform to Your understanding of Your people. Give them supernatural overflow in their lives, that they might bless others in Your name. I pray that they share the Good word that they have learned. Let their spirit man overtake their natural man NOW!
In Jesus' name
AMEN AMEN AMEN!

Do you have "friends" who give you their opinions all the time and call it "advice"? Are there nosy pals that always want to know all the drama in your life? Do you have a homey that "knows it all"? There are people planted in your life who add subtract, multiply and divide. You do the arithmetic! First some felt sorry for Job, then it quickly turned into accusations that, he, Job, must have done something to deserve all this mess in his life. What "friends!"
(Job 1:1This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.)
(Job 3:25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come on me, and that which I was afraid of is come to me.)
THIS IS WHAT WE ARE TAUGHT!
Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid.
2 Timothy 1:7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
Num. 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?
The enemy has NO POWER in your life. He can only make suggestions. He is a liar and an accuser of the brethren. Revelation 12:10
1 Then Job replied to the LORD:2 “I know that you can do all things;no purpose of yours can be thwarted.3 You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’
Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.
I must remember to mention that this ALONE did not turn it around! You MUST read on! JOB PRAYED FOR HIS FRIENDS!
10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.
Are you Job? When you can find no one with compassion to encourage and lift you when you need it, but you are all that to others...........you are called to pray for them! What makes you exempt from trials of life? You may be faithful and upright, but do you fear?Seems to me, that you must be an intercessor then. I dare you to watch God open up the windows of heaven over you and your childrens' children!

He has done ENOUGH!!!!!
Thank you God for my daily conformations and inspirations!!!!! I cannot believe where you have taken me to. I could not have planned it, or thought it. I mean WOW!!!! MY GOD! I am in fantastic awe! I am struck dumb by your infinite plans for me. You said when I let it go, I would be light enough for you to carry. I have dropped my bundle and jumped in your arms! You said I am the head and NOT the tail! I believe You God because You are NO respecter of man and you are not the son of man that you shall repent! I have looked in me and to others and still there is NO ONE like You!
I can't tell you in a million tongues thank you for the NO! HALLELUJAH!!!!! It is all YOU FATHER ALL YOU!!! YOU ALONE! I just want you GOD! You are jealous for me and I am now paying great attention to you. I am Your agent. Your earthly mouthpiece! Let the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your sight.
I give myself away.......SO USE ME!

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
If you think about the evil plans that people have executed against you , sometimes you have got to wonder,"Why did He allow that thing to happen?" He didn't stop it! He showed you who you are IN IT! He changed things around where you knew that it could ONLY be Him who did it.
Examples would be losing a job, so that in it, you would have to depend on HIM! You could waste time being bitter and angry or questioning it. Later you come to see that you were SET FREE and HE doubled your portion and you got a promotion with a BONUS!
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
We are called to worship Him in Spirit and truth, through good and bad, ups and downs. I have to remember ALL the other times when I didn't know where I would go, or what I would do and then I can testify to MYSELF that HE Has NEVER LEFT ME or forsaken me. I have NEVER lacked for a thing. He has ALWAYS turned it around for my good.
EVEN MY MISTAKES HAVE BLESSED ME! HALLELUJAH!
God I want to thank you for touching those who read this. Let the Holy Spirit pour over them as You minister to their need. Lord, let them know that YOU are the still small voice beyond the turbulence that life brings them. Lord protect their minds, and hearts. Show them your patient loving kindness, even when they question where You are. Finally, God, I pray that you would enlarge their territory. Give them mercy, favor, and abundance. Open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing. In Jesus name
