Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 9.30.15

Scripture

Do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.

Deuteronomy 4:9 NIV

Pray
What I know, You have told me, shown me, and allowed me to see, hear, and experience. My healings are my testimonies. I hold what I know close to my heart. I will never let them go. I will never give anyone or anything credit for the work that You have done in my life. Even in heartache You have blessed me. May generations of my offspring praise You even more than I do. I love You Father. Amen.

Reflection
Teaching God’s Truth must be done generationally. It is not good enough that those in your age range know; the younger generations must know, and it must create a generationally domino effect that is never ceasing. God’s Love is never ending, His healing is never limited, so why should our commitment to Him have a time limit? Why should we not do our part to make sure that our children’s great great great great grandchildren know how good and great God is?

Children grow up to be adults, and they need the foundation of God’s Word to guide and strengthen them. Teach them now.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 9.29.15

Scripture

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Joshua 24:14 NASB

Pray
There is no other source that my home will turn to except You Father. I will strive each day to make sure that my family’s eyes, hearts, and minds are set on You. Humbly I declare this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Reflection
You make the determination; either your family will serve God or serve someone or something else. Either you believe or you don’t. God gives us the choice, but He expects us to choose—commit one way or the other—no hopscotching or double-dutching back and forth.

What is your choice?

Questions of the Day

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 9.28.15

Scripture
We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done. 
Psalm 78:4 NIV

Pray

It is my intention to share Your goodness with the world, for generations yet born, to know and love You Father. I will do my part to make this so. I will praise Your name publicly, using all resources available to me. I will tell friend and foe, family and stranger. In Jesus’ name I pledge this to You. Amen. 

Reflection

If believers don’t tell the world about God’s goodness, then who will? If believers don’t speak and teach the children about God’s amazing work, then who will? 
If believers don’t walk the walk, then the world is left to guess what a Christian is and is not. Do you really want people to label you based on their understanding of skewed intel and misinformation, or based on God’s Word as a measurement? 
Your individual legacy is in your hands. Our Christian legacy rests in our individual and collective journey. What will the world say about you in 100+ years? What will the world say about Christianity in 100+ years? 
We must live lives bigger than ourselves. Reach farther, go deeper, think broader, and always strive for excellence in all things, all circumstances, and all relationships. 
Are you ready to step your game up?
Let’s do this!

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 9.23.15

Scripture

I do you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood good, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. 
1 Peter 2:9 NIV
Pray

Thank You for this day Father. As a gift I embrace it fully, and will make the decision to be present, so that I can fully appreciate what today has to offer. Thank You for Your love and care. Amen. 
Reflection

Look at today and what it offers. Don’t be concerned about tomorrow, God has that covered. Don’t dwell on the past, it’s behind you. If you can, learn from that history so that you don’t repeat the mistakes. But remember that you can’t stand strong or move forward with one foot in the past, and one trying to fast-track to the future. You’re bound to stumble and fall.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 9.22.15

Scripture 

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. 
Ephesians 1:18, 19 NASB
Pray

Father I want to thank You for my blessings. I know that I don’t deserve them, but Your love, mercy, and grace overshadow any deficiency that I might have. Thank You Father. Amen. 
Reflection

Be grateful for all of the gifts, blessings, talents, and special qualities that God has given you. What He intends for you, is for you. Don’t be concerned or consumed by what others have, or how their lives appear to be in comparison to yours. God never gives to others what He intends for you, and vice versa. Besides, the grass always looks greener from the other side. And if by chance the other grass happens to be greener, understand that it requires more work, consistency, and time to get and keep that greener grass. Maybe if you invested the extra work and time, and consistently did so, your grass would be as green if not greener than the other.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 9.21.15

Scripture

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. 
Psalm 139:23-24 NIV
Pray

Father You know me. I trust You. I release all to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen. 
Reflection

I know that I’m a work in progress and that God is constantly molding me, and molding out of me all that displeases Him. I don’t need to be concerned with aligning with the world, or the people in it. My focus, and your focus, should be on aligning with God’s way and wishes. 
I read this beautiful reflection share by DaySpring that said:

“You are the only you the world has. The only one we really need. The only one who, according to Psalm 139, has been…examined by God, protected by Him, followed by Him, carefully created by Him, known by Him, blessed by Him, guided by Him, seen by Him, strengthened by Him, supported by Him, led by Him.”
That says it all folks!

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 9.17.15

Scripture 
But now, this is what the Lord says— He who created you… “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine.”
Isaiah 43:1 NIV
Pray

You have great plans for me Father and I’m excited at what You still have in store for me. There have been times when I’ve stumbled, fallen, stalled, lost my way, ran away, and froze in absolute fear. There have been times when I doubted, questioned, and even tried to reason with You. You love me so much that You have forgiven me, laughed at my silliness, redirected my steps, picked me up, and protected me even when I foolishly disobeyed You. Thank You Father. 
I know that I don’t deserve all that You have given me and all that You have done for me. Thank You for Your unwavering love and patience. There is no source greater, more loving, more giving, or more capable than You. I praise You in the name of Jesus and in the name of those who sacrificed in obedience to You. Amen.  
Reflection 

God chose you, set you apart from everyone else, and appointed you to do specific things in His name. 
He didn’t tell you your time limit. He just reminds you that there is one, and every second of the day you have to choose how best to use that time. 
What will you do?
I’m making an effort each day to place God 1st, me and my family 2nd, and my career 3rd; in all that I do I’m working to make sure that every decision is God-centered, and that I keep my priorities in order. I can’t have family and career without God. 
How can I ask to be a priority for God, to be healed and protected by Him, but then put Him anywhere and everywhere except first in my life?
What place, what role, what position does God stand in your life?
