The Lord Commands the Blessing

Jodee Schrlau printable scripture verse study

The Lord Commands the Blessing

The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your storehouses and in all that you undertake, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.  Deuteronomy 28:8   If there was ever a time we need the blessings of Deuteronomy 28 in our life, it is now.   Gas, food, and utility prices are all going up. Taxes will probably increase while incomes are staying the same or even going down in some cases.   My word for this year is focus.  Each month God has had me focus on a specific area.  This month he wants the focus...

Perceive-Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

Perceive-Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

The Bible talks a lot about people not having eyes to see and ears to hear.  It is not talking about being physically blind and deaf but unable to perceive what is happening. The Jews did not perceive that Jesus was the long-awaited Messiah, and they missed the blessing He had for them.  Can you imagine having the opportunity to sit and talk with your Messiah but missing it because you could not perceive who Jesus was?   Do you remember the magic eye images?  To find the hidden picture, you had to look deeper into the image. That is...

Between Covid lockdowns and the winter weather we've been having, many of us have been indoors longer than  normal. With that hibernation the winter blues can set in. Winter blues have been having a definite effect at our house.   I just want to curl up beside the fireplace with a good book and cup of coffee and stay there until spring. And so that's what I do. Then guilt sets in. I should be doing something not just wasting all this time.  And that make the blues bluer. Scientists say that unless you have SAD (seasonal affect disorder) the weather...

God is Patient

God is Patient

In 1 Corinthians 13, love is described. The first attribute listed is patience. We know God is love, so this verse is actually describing Him.    Love is patient. God is love. Therefore, God is patient.   Patience is the ability to wait or to continue doing something despite difficulties, without complaining or becoming annoyed. It is having the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.   God has plans and dreams for you, and He patiently leads you to them. Our struggles and unbelief don't annoy Him. He doesn't complain about how slow we...

Persistence to Finish

Persistence to Finish

Those of us with creative minds have to learn persistence. I think it is a little bit harder for us than the general population. We often have several different ideas running through our minds at the same time. We start one project, and that triggers ideas for several more. The focus and persistence to finish a project is a discipline we need to develop to be successful.     Persistence, determination, tenacity, faithfulness; are traits that please the Lord. In Matt. 25:23, he says this to those who persisted in using the talents He gave them.   Well done, good and...
