"Welcome to "Fan the Flame" Friday.
This is a weekly post that will be "short and sweet" (kinda like me...)
Just a word and a question (or few)…just a little something to
"fan the flame" of your creativity!
And, to further fan those faith-filled flames (try saying that 10 times in a row!) – I'm adding my favorite devotional from the week!
Today's word: ready
What does the word ready mean to you?
How can we make ourselves ready to face the enemy?
What must we do to be ready for the Lord's coming?
Why is it so important to be ready for all circumstances in the Christian walk of faith?
Let me know what you think!!
"Stay alert! [Be ready!] Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour."
(1 Peter 5:8, NLT)
"And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see."
(1 Peter 1:5, NLT)
(1 Peter 1:5, NLT)
"They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good." (Titus 3:1, NLT)
"...you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it." (1 Peter 3:15, NLT)
"Then Paul answered, 'Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die...for the name of the Lord Jesus.'" (Acts 21:13, NIV)
DEVOTIONAL OF THE WEEK:
Many people brood over the unknown. In their uncertainty they fall prey to anxiety and tension. For the Christian believer there is a glorious truth...We know that [Jesus] is with us right now, leading us through life. He also went to prepare a place for us in God's heavenly Kingdom...We will be with the Lord forever...hold on to the promises of Jesus...
*Through faith I know that You live and that I too will live eternally with you.
"For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that He might be the Lord of both the living and the dead." (Romans 14:9, NIV)

"This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you…For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:6-7)
