Scripture Meditation til Resurrection Day

Good day Mars,

Our meditation for Saturday, March 31, 2012

Jesus: Buried with the Rich
Isaiah 53:9 “And he made his grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death: because he had done no violence, neither was any decit in his mouth.” KJV
Matthew 27: 57-60 “As evening approached, Joseph a rich man from Aremathea who had become a follower of Jesus, went to Pilate and asked for Jesus body. And Pilate issued an order to release it to him. Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a long sheet of clean linen cloth. He placed it in his won new tomb, which had been carved out of the rock. NLT
Read: Isaiah 53:9 OT prophecy; Matthew 27:57-60 NT fulfillment.
Isaiah prophesies that through His suffering many would be forgiven, justified, redeemed and healed. His suffering would also lead to His exaltation and glory.
Thought for today: Despite what it looks like I am always a winner!
Almighty God, I say “Thank you not only for another day, but also for another week”! I am bless that you have kept me through it all. Teach me to bury some things and not to go back to them again. It is only with your help and teaching that I can do this. Thank you Father for all the people that you have sent along the way to help me. Please forgive me of all of my sins in all that I say and do. I need your help to continue to go on. This I ask in Jesus’ name I pray Amen!

Are we really seeking God?

Heeyy Mars, how you doin?

     I know its been a while but I really have started devoting majority of my time to prayer. Every night I find myself calling one or more of my sistahs to have prayer. My television watching has went from a 10 to a 3 whew! I'm so grateful to God because this time I believe I'm serious. We've all been down this road; we get on fire for God and then we allow our fire to die out, but so far its been a good 2 months.
You know what? I'm also believing this is also igniting my sons walk as  he listens and watches from the other room. And what about Trayvon Martin?

People united for justice!
     We'll constantly keeping his parents in prayer. Never ever forgetting all those other people out there who are deeply touched. Another black son gone! The injustice is dreadful.
     You see how important it is to stay close to our sons and even closer to God. The enemy is seeking after our lives and those who are close to us but are we really SEEKING God? The bible tells us to "seek the Lord while He is able to be found; call on Him while He's near." Isa 55:6 If the only time we practice this scripture is in times of trouble then Wo to us but you know what? God is still faithful to hear our cries. So continue to cry out to Jesus, He's a ever present help in the times of trouble, our strong tower and a refuge.
     Mars from this day forward I will be posting daily scriptures to meditate on; remember were in the Lent season, the time of Jesus sufferings for us and our precious sons. Please try to read them until Resurrection Day.
Our meditation for Thursday, March 29, 2012
Jesus: Pierced in His side
Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first born.” KJV
John 19:34 “One of the soldiers, however, pierced his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out.” NLT
Zechariah states compassion is coming through Jesus.  From this, the people will receive grace and prayers shall be answered.  In order to receive this, a death must take place.Read Zechariah 12:10 OT prophecy; John 19:34 NT fulfillment
Thought for today:
The price paid for love! Would you endure this for someone you love or for that matter did not know you?
Almighty God “Thank You” for this day!  I cannot vision what it would feel like being pierced in my side.  I do not want all that you went through to be in vain.  Please forgive me of all of my sins and help me to walk right before you.  Help me to love like you.  This I ask in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
Keep seeking God,
 Jerri of Mars
