We must obey God rather than men

Wig’s Word of God Today 5-5-2011

 

But Peter and the Apostles said in reply, “We must obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29

 

Whoever does accept His testimony certifies that God is trustworthy. John 3:33

 

Acts 5:27-33, Psalm 34 & John 3:31-36

 

Today the United States of America celebrates it 60th Anniversary of a National Day of Prayer established by Congress in 1952 and has been officially observed by every president since, well until now. The National Day of Prayer actually began back in 1775 within the Continental Congress, which annually designated a day of prayer before we became a nation.  Congress officially enacted this into law in 1952 and the law was challenged recently by the Freedom from Religion Foundation which lost in its attempt to exclude our national heritage of being thankful publically to our great and all powerful God. Since the beginning time and especially since Christ’s life, death and resurrection, mankind has recognized the need to pray to our God and be thankful, seek counsel and live according to His Decrees. The Apostle Peter said it best in Acts 5:29 today, “”We must obey God rather than men.”

 

Prayer is what this nation was built on and what people of faith do each and every day to allow our anxiety’s of job, family and life to be shouldered by Jesus Christ Himself. I believe in the Power of Prayer and I respectfully seek His guidance each day for my own life as well as hundreds of others I pray for each and every morning as I write. Yesterday, a young man I met at a prayer gathering sent me a message expressing his gratitude for the prayers I sent out for his family and him finding a new job. I asked everyone to pray for him to find work and he was offered a job just a few short days after we met and he is always thanking God for it. Jesus tells us in John 3:36 today that the only way to the Father is through Himself and God’s wrath remains on those who choose to follow their own way. “Whoever believes in the Son has Eternal Life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him.” When we love our love of Christ Jesus, we pray over everything, anytime and anywhere with anyone who seeks prayer to accomplish the Will of God for faith, charity and love. Amen.

 

So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we today for strength to have the courage to pray to You anywhere we are to be thankful for Your Son’s Truth to guide us each and every day. We pray today for Andrew DeWitt and his new job, his beautiful wife and baby and his continued strength in life by Your Son’s Word. We pray also for Augie Silva for healing and peace. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 

God Bless,

Infinity No Fear of Prayer

 

The waves of my joy

The tears of my heart

Embellish my soul

Forever embarked

 

His love our bond

His bond so dear

Soulistic surrender

Infinity no fear

 

Beauty in prayer

She’s my life

I pray for her

Soul-2-soul wife

 

Pray to be thankful

Pray to be true

Pray to know Jesus

Pray to be new

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
