God’s Favor in Business

Psalm 112:5-10 (TPT) says, ” Life is good for the one who is generous and charitable,
    conducting affairs with honesty and truth.
6 Their circumstances will never shake them
    and others will never forget their example.
7 They will not live in fear or dread of what may come,
    for their hearts are firm, ever secure in their faith.
8 Steady and strong, they will not be afraid,
    but will calmly face their every foe
    until they all go down in defeat.
9 Never stingy and always generous to those in need,
    their lives of influence and honor will never be forgotten,
    for they were full of good deeds.
10 But the wicked take one look at a life lived like this
    and they grit their teeth in anger, not understanding their bliss.
    The wicked slink away speechless in the darkness that falls,
    where hope dies and all their dreams fade away to nothing,
    nothing at all!”

John 17:20-26 says, “20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

The High Priestly Prayer, Pt. 2

John 17:11-19 says, “11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.”

From the Milk to the Meat

Hebrews 5:12-14 says, “12For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
