Acts 11: 21-26; 13:1-3
The Lord helped them, and a great number believed and were converted to the Lord.
The news of them came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem and they sent Barnabas out to Antioch. There he was glad to see for himself that God had given grace, and he urged them all to remain faithful to the Lord with heartfelt devotion; for he was a good man, filled with the Holy Spirit and with faith. And a large number of people were won over to the Lord.
Barnabas then left for Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he found him he brought him to Antioch. And it happened that they stayed together in that church a whole year, instructing a large number of people. It was at Antioch that the disciples were first called ‘Christians’.
The mission sent out
In the church at Antioch the following were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen, who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. One day while they were offering worship to the Lord and keeping a fast, the Holy Spirit said, ‘I want Barnabas and Saul set apart for the work to which I have called them.’ So it was that after fasting and prayer they laid their hands on them and sent them off.
Psalm 98: 1-6
The judge of the world
Sing a new song to Yahweh,
for he has performed wonders,
his saving power is in his right hand
and his holy arm.
Yahweh has made known
his saving power,
revealed his saving justice for the nations to see,
mindful of his faithful love and his constancy
to the House of Israel.
The whole wide
world has seen
the saving power of our God.
Acclaim Yahweh, all the earth,
burst into shouts of joy!
Play to Yahweh on the harp,
to the sound of instruments;
to the sound of trumpet and horn,
acclaim the presence of the King.
Excerpt from November 8, 1991 - 4:00 a.m.
Jesus: From this day forward, you will have love, peace and joy.
You are drawn to Me like a magnet - come home to Me and feel the inner joy in your heart.
I am with you always to the ends of the earth.
I am your God and you shall not have other gods besides Me.
I will be with you - that is My promise. I will be with you forever more. Cling to Me for I am strong.
Do not be afraid, for I will gently show you the way of the Lord.
Matthew 11: 28-30
R. Jesus, save me from the snare of the devil, from his seed. Plant me on solid ground so I can prosper and be full and follow the ways of the Lord.
‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’
For You have gently touched my heart and I am warm and cuddly inside.
Your wish is my command. I must follow the ways of the Lord in all things and follow His path, doing His will.
You will show me this path, if I am open to You. All I need do is ask, and I will be answered.
Open my heart and my will to Your direction, Lord Jesus. You are with me in the night, in the rising of the sun and during the day. In all my trials, You are there. Open up my heart to Your word.
The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Give me Your direction so I might know what path You want me to take.
If I open my heart and listen, all will be revealed to me in His time. For the honor and glory of You Jesus Christ I ask these things in Your name and open my heart to Your direction.
Please help me to put aside the ways of the flesh and follow Your direction, Lord Jesus, this day and always to dwell in the house of the Lord.
Song: All My Days
R. Today is one of those days. Sing praise to God our Father, Jesus, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. Honor and glory to You, GOD.
Thanks for this letter, You wake me from my sleep. I thought I heard a noise, but it was You waking me to talk to me.
Your word is the word of God, and all honor be Yours for Your direction. It came from God and I must heed these words.
God speaks: Put your anger aside, and make room in your heart for Jesus' love I pour into you right now. Replenish yourself with My love and My grace and be still, for I am with you this day. I will watch over you, and comfort you, and bring you into the land flowing with milk and honey. Listen to My word and be glad so that all might see your good works and praise your Father Who is in heaven.
I bless you and keep you ever in My Heart. Be ready to do My will and be blessed by Me. Listen and be glad, for I am with you until the consummation of the world.
Go now and live My word, My child. I love you.
Jesus: In the midst of confusion, be the light shining in the darkness, be life to those who are down-hearted. I have the power to do all things and I am within you, so you have the power to be My light to the world.
You are plugged into an undying source. I am there. I want to love, I want to give, I want to comfort and strengthen. I will do these things to My brethren through you, if you let Me.
Love your family, I have given them as gifts to you, to love and care for.
