Tuesdays with Tiz

Preach the Word

"Preach the word; be diligent in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine" 2 Timothy 4:2

In this scripture verse, Paul is instructing Timothy on how to be a leader in The Church in light of the fact that these new christians are being exposed to false teachers and false doctrine. Read verses 1 - 5 for a clear picture of Paul's charge to this young pastor.

Friends, these are the same instructions God has given your pastor and my pastor. If my pastor is to be all God has instructed him to be then he needs my support and my cooperation...and my steadfast prayers on his behalf. My pastor certainly does not need me expecting more of him than God expects of him.

My family is awesomely blessed to have a humble, God loving, Spirit filled, young man as our pastor. We love him dearly and we know he loves us. I trust all of you are as blessed.

"Father, I thank you from the depth of my heart for Pastor Wren who loves, instructs, cares for and encourages me. I thank you for teaching him your Word so he can teach it to me. I ask you to bless each person reading this post with a pastor just like mine. I pray they will, in turn, be blessed and encouraged by their pastor. In Jesus Name, I pray." Amen

My Confession for Today

"This day I will be blessed when I go out and I will be blessed when I come back in this afternoon. The fruit of my womb is being blessed today. This day I choose to walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit knowing that the Spirit of God in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me today. My inner man is being renewed today. This day I choose to rejoice in the Lord. Jesus will richly bless each and every person I come in contact with today.

I boldly declare that I am a daughter of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and I will live the life of a Princess today. Now that I have typed myself into the Glory Zone I will go out and be Jesus in my world today."

Oh, blog friends, join me today in declaring who you are in Jesus. Hold your head high, straighten your crown, and walk in His Victory!!!

"Father, I praise you as my Victory today. I pray that my blog friends will confess You in their lives today and they will be blessed abundantly by and in You. In Jesus Name, I pray." Amen
