…………………….THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…………………….
ASK AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU; SEEK, AND YOU
WILL FIND; KNOCK, AND IT WILL BE OPENED TO YOU.
( LUKE 11:9-10 *NKJV )
Those are the words of our Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus
also said, “IF YOU ABIDE IN ME, AND MY WORDS
ABIDE IN YOU, YOU WILL ASK WHAT YOU DESIRE,
AND IT SHALL BE DONE FOR YOU.”
( JOHN 15:7 )
Now these verses do not mean that everything we
may ask for will be given to us, but do mean that if it is
God’s Will for us it will happen! After all we may ask
for something that would hurt us in the end, for we
have no way of knowing the future.
So when you pray do not be afraid to ask God for
something that you desire, knowing that He who knows
all is looking out for you. For God has said; THEN YOU WILL
CALL UPON ME AND COME AND PRAY TO ME,AND
I WILL LISTEN TO YOU. YOU WILL SEEK ME AND
FIND ME WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR
HEART. ( JEREMIAH 29:12-13 )
Therefore, never lose hope when you pray for
it is written, THE EFFECTIVE, FERVENT PRAYER OF A
RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILS MUCH. ( JAMES 5:16 )
So; PRAY CONTINUALLY; GIVE THANKS IN ALL
CIRCUMSTANCES, FOR THIS IS GOD’S WILL FOR
YOU IN CHRIST JESUS. Amen.
( 1 THESSALONIANS 5:17-18 )
( LUKE 1:32-33 )
The reason this verse states “His father David” is because in the
Hebrew language there were no words for Grandfather or Great
Grandfather, etc. So one’s ancestors were all called fathers.
[Prophecy: The Messiah Would Be Born In Bethlehem]
( FROM THE MINOR PROPHETS )
BUT YOU, BETHLEHEM EPHRATHAH, THOUGH YOU ARE
LITTLE AMONG THE THOUSANDS IN JUDAH, YET OUT OF
YOU SHALL COME FORTH TO ME THE ONE TO BE RULER
IN ISRAEL WHOSE GOINGS FORTH ARE FROM THE OLD,
FROM EVERLASTING.” ( MICAH 5:2 )
Bethlehem means “House of Bread.” Going forth
from the old means that this birth of a Savior King would be
unlike the birth of any other, because He was preexistent.
He is from the everlasting!
With our love and prayers.

As you know, our ministry is a ministry of Faith, and is supported by God’s people.
Romans 12:8 says: “If God has given you money….be generous in helping others”! “Therefore, I ask you to be generous toward our ministry.”
Every morning we pray for those of you who read our Thought For The Day.
Have a wonderful day, and may the love of Christ fill your heart and mind, now and always.
