Grace Day

Open Your Bible

Isaiah 61:9

Take this day to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.

Their descendants will be known among the nations,
and their posterity among the peoples.
All who see them will recognize
that they are a people the LORD has blessed.

    KimN- I love this analogy! I am trying to do exactly as you have said. It is so hard, some days I even wonder if it’s accomplishing anything. Thanks for the encouragement ❤️

    Happy Saturday to you my dear sisters. Welcome Brittany, I am so glad you are here. I get excited with books as well, I love the smell of new books. So glad you got yours. I pray God will reveal himself mightily to you as you read His word, and please come to the comment section to share with us the revelation God gives you. Everyone gets a different message from God, so reading different perspectives of a passage is such a well-rounded way to learn on SRT.

    This verse is my one of my favorites (Isaiah 61:9). All who see them will recognize they are blessed by God, they will be known, their prosperity will be known. The manifestation of God’s blessing is recognizable, tangible. It is not hidden. Just like a tree bearing fruit, that fruit is visible. The harvest is visible. When God blesses us, He blesses from the inside to the outside, this verse is a confirmation that people see the fruit of God’s blessing in our lives. Praise the Lord. May I honor Him with my first fruits, may I honor God with my harvest. May I keep my heart humble before Him after receiving the harvest, not forgetting where I came from, knowing all things come from Him, and He is the one who sent rain for my harvest to grow. Glory to God. Thank you Lord.

    Sisters, may your weekend be filled with peace and joy!

    Hugs and blessings and my thanks for all your prayers for Fran. I’ve asked for an update on where she is now on surgery schedule but have not heard back. As thing open up here in CA I hope to get to see her (even if we have to sit across a table with a big plexiglass divider) this next week. I’ll keep you posted as I learn what’s going on. Thanks to all y’all again. May your weekend be blessed by the joy of the Lord.

    VICTORIA E – sending much love to you this day!
    I hear ya as I live in a northern climate where so much of the year is winter.
    Trees where I live go dormant for the winter. All their growing energy stays put for a season so when conditions are right, they are able to bloom, leaf out, grow, produce fruit, thrive.
    Perhaps, friend, that is your season right now. Storing up God’s word, resting and waiting in His love, preparing for the tasks he has ahead of you. Stay in the Word. Even if you don’t “feel” the truth, continue to water your soul with it. Just as a dormant plant needs water even when it looks like nothing is happening.
    I’ll be praying for you, trusting that God knows your heart and will meet you where you are. (I’m a plant nerd so forgive the analogy!). You are loved!

    Let your light shine for Christ!

  14. Maura says:

    Good Morning all. My prayer, May His light so shine in us by His Spirit that He is known, His grace and love felt, the name of Jesus lifted up. Erb, Chapter 1 has so much in it. It struck me that though God is telling them how evil they are and exclaims their guilt and corruption and His disgust with their sacrifices because they have joined in pagan practices and their hearts are not right. Yet interspersed is scripture like verse 18 Come now let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet they shall be white as snow, though they are crimson, they shall be like wool.” And then verse 25-27 I will turn my hand against you; I will purge away your dross and remove your impurities. I will restore your judges as in days of old, your counselors as in the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City. Zion will be redeemed with justice, her pentitent ones with righteousness.” I so hear God’s grace through Jesus in these verses. How amazing our Father’s plans to save us, even in the midst of all the evil. Redemption was coming. Sorry to go on. Isaiah is full of so much, I don’t want to take away from SRT in any way, but will try to post how reading along in Isaiah is blessing me, or a verse that is speaking to me when I can. Thank you Erb! May His word grow us in His beautiful ways. Hugs Sisters. The sun coming through my window this morning. The shadows of the branches and slats of the shudders, simply lovely. Thankful.

    Wouldn’t that be wonderful if all of us with Christ in our hearts stood out as an amazing, blessed people? We are called to be something higher, a light for all to see. I want people to see there is something special about me, and wonder how they can get that! Lord help me to always have a light for your love to shine for others to see.

  17. Melissa Mcronney says:

    Amen, thank You Jesus

    Prayer focus this Grace Day is on all the prayer requests that have been posted this past week by you, my SRT sisters in Christ. May God lift your burdens and renew your strength. May He give you peace.

  19. Kelly says:

    Wow…so powerful.
    I pray that those who see me know that I am blessed by the LORD!
    STRUGGLING-virtual hug to you today.
    Still praying for the other requests too.
    Blessings ❤

    Maura, so excited to have you join me in reading Isaiah, along with our SRT devotional!! Here’s what stood out to me in chapter 1… verses 22-23 “Your silver has become dross, your choice wine is diluted with water. 23 Your rulers are rebels, partners with thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widow’s case does not come before them.” ….so much truth and wisdom there!! What stood out to you?

    Victoria, when I started writing this comment, to let you know I was praying… the word VICTORY came to me!! Then I noticed that victory is even part of your name!! CLAIM victory in this winter season, knowing that NEW LIFE is coming!!! Take heart dear sister!! You’re walking this out well.

    Fran, my heart sank reading about her situation… I have an Aunt who has gone through something very similar… she was so discouraged, disheartened and depressed it was SCARY!!! There was literally nothing we could do to help except pray and try to call her. …But just when things seemed at their bleakest that’s when God opened ALL the doors!!!! All of them at once!!! It was crazy how FAST things happened, after waiting for over a year, she FINALLY got the surgery and care she needed, and just yesterday she was sent HOME!!!! I pray for the doors to be open for Fran, and that God comforts her during this awful time…

    Have a super blessed day today sisters!!!
