There Is Nothing Better Than to Enjoy Your Work

There Is Nothing Better Than to Enjoy Your Work

No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them. – Ecclesiastes 1:11

All a man’s days are grief and pain; even at night his mind does not rest. – Ecclesiastes 2:23

To the one who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. – Ecclesiastes 2:26

God has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no man can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. – Ecclesiastes 3:11

I know that there is nothing better for a man than to be happy and to do good while he lives. That he may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—-this is the gift of God. – Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment—-wickedness was there. In the place of justice—-wickedness was there. – Ecclesiastes 3:16

Everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. – Ecclesiastes 3:14

Men are like the animals. Surely the fate of man is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both – return to dust. – Ecclesiastes 3:18-19

I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is his lot. – Ecclesiastes 3:22

If we obey God, it is going to cost other people more than it costs us, but God will care for those who have suffered the consequences of our obedience. – Oswald Chambers

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your Daughter-in-law Is Better Than 7 Sons …

Ruth 4

Your Daughter-in-law Is Better Than 7 Sons ...“Your daughter-in-law who lives with you is better than 7 sons.” Ruth 4:15

Lord, please bless our daughters-in-laws.

They named him Obed. Obed was the father of Jesse who have 7 sons plus David. Ruth 4:17

From a foreigner you brought forth King David, the forerunner to Christ. David’s grandfather was half Moabite. Lord, may you bless all those you graft into your Kingdom through your grace.

May the Lord make the woman who is coming into your home like Rachel and Leah, who together built up the house of Israel. Ruth 4:11

Lord, may you bless the words of my hands today and bring prosperity to all our LPC books, our authors, and my own writing. 

 

Once you receive a commission from Jesus Christ, the memory of what God asks of you will always be there to prod you on to do His will.

Spread the Corner of Your Garment …

Ruth 3

Spread the Corner of Your Garment ...“Spread the corner of your garment over me.” Ruth 3:9

Lord, this is my prayer today. Spread the corner of your garment over me.

May I find you in “good spirits,” approach quietly and lay down in your presence.

May I be found by you to be a man of noble character. As surely as you live and reign, Lord, redeem me. And redeem my two books from Harper Collins. Free Skull Creek Stakeout and Dead Low Tide.

The Word of God inflicts hurt on us more than sin ever could, because sin dulls our senses. Oswald Chambers

There is never any mistaking the pain of the Lord’s Word by His children, but the moment that pain is felt is the very moment at which God reveals His truth to us. Oswald Chambers
