Eight Days of WHAT IF?



A Devotional 

.   Day one:
What If?
What if we thanked and praised the Lord for all our blessings and  blessed our enemies as the Bible says to do? What if we prayed for the Peace of Jerusalem and for the President of the United States and all in authority?

.  Day two:
What If? 
What if we not only prayed for the President of the United States and all in authority, we also prayed that they and their loved ones might be saved?

.   Day three:
What If?
What if we repented of all our sins? And what if we promised not to sin again and really meant it? 

.   Day four: 
What If?
What if we forgave others and prayed for their souls? 

.   Day five:
What If?
What if we read the Bible carefully, believed it, and truly tried to do the things God suggested we do via the Bible?  

.   Day six:
What If?
What if we became doers of the word and not hearers only?

.   Day seven:
What If?
What if every morning and every night we put on the whole armor of God? What if maybe we touched our waists and said something like, "I put on the Belt of Truth in the name of Jesus." What if we touched our chests and said, "I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness?" What if next we touched or pointed to our feet and said, "I put on the shoes that with take me to preach the Gospel of Peace? What if we held up a shield we cannot see with our eyes and said, "I take up the Shield of Faith," and then we touched our heads and said, "I put on the Helmet of Salvation?" And finally what if we pointed our forefingers and said, "I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God in the name of Jesus?" 
What if? What If? 

.   Day eight:
What if?
What if we did all the things we have discussed these eight days, and we did them every day? And what if God heard from Heaven and healed our land?

What if everybody told others about the What If list, and those they told told everybody they knew? What might be the results?
Love,

What if we followed God's call on our lives?

Great questions!

Teresa Slack said...

What if we really listened to the other person's side of a situation & tried to imagine how they felt even if we believed we were 100% right.
