Yesterday, our Lord gave me, from His Word, the theme word "HAPPY" as pertains to my birthday this year.
Here I share the "HAPPY" scriptures that He provided:
The Acts 26:2
I think myself happy,...
Behold, we count them happy which endure....
Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.
He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
1 Peter 3:14
But and if ye suffer for righteousness sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror neither be troubled;
1 Peter 4:14
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
Prayer for April 30th birthday folks:
Thank You, Lord, for your precious gift of another birthday. My wish is that I become increasingly holy in accordance with 2 Corinthians 7:1, which states, "Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
Most high GOD, please save us from sinful habits, and from being earth focused. Please teach us how to set our affections on things above where Christ sits on Your right hand - Colossians 3:1,2. Teach us how to love and to cheerfully share. Help us to yield to You in all of our affairs so that we can successfully stand against the wiles of the devil - Ephesians 6. We need to steadfastly use the shield of faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Teach us, please, how to walk in the Spirit - Galatians 5:16 - so that we can please You, and enter Your kingdom to hear You say, "...Well done, thou good and faithful servant:...enter thou into the joy of thy lord." - Matthew 25:21
Thank You, Lord - Amen.
Note: For those who are inclined, please share your birthday month and day. I would love to wish you a HAPPY Birthday! Thank you.
