Daily Prayer for February 3rd, 2018

Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank You! :o)

Your greatest two commandments now are to love You, and love others. All the Law and the Prophets hang on those two commandments. How much is that to ask of mankind? However, it is You who works in me/us to will, and to act, in order to fulfill Your good purpose. Holy Spirit, help me to keep Your commands as I yield myself to You and Your love. Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. In Jesus name. Amen.

Matthew 22:34-40 New International Version (NIV)

The Greatest Commandment

34¬†Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees,¬†the Pharisees got together.¬†35¬†One of them, an expert in the law,¬†tested him with this question:¬†36¬†‚ÄúTeacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?‚ÄĚ

37¬†Jesus replied:¬†‚Äú‚ÄėLove the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.‚Äô¬†38¬†This is the first and greatest commandment.¬†39¬†And the second is like it: ‚ÄėLove your neighbor as yourself.‚Äô 40¬†All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.‚ÄĚ

Matthew 11:30 New International Version (NIV)

30¬†For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.‚ÄĚ

Philippians 2:13 New International Version (NIV)

13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

1 John 5:3 New International Version (NIV)

3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,

James 1:22 New International Version (NIV)

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

2 Peter 3:17-18 New International Version (NIV)

17 Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position. 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

Deuteronomy 28 New Living Translation (NLT)

Blessings for Obedience

28 “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. 2 You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:

3 Your towns and your fields
will be blessed.
4 Your children and your crops
will be blessed.
The offspring of your herds and flocks
will be blessed.
5 Your fruit baskets and breadboards
will be blessed.
6 Wherever you go and whatever you do,
you will be blessed.

7 “The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!

8 “The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

9 “If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways, the Lord will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do.10 Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you.

11 “The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. 12 The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. 13 If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. 14 You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today, nor follow after other gods and worship them.
