You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing.

– Psalms 145:16

Daily Theme

Thank God as your provider for all your needs.

God’s name Jehovah Jireh means “God the Provider.” “It’s the name given by Abraham to the place where he had sacrificed a ram provided by God, instead of his son Isaac ( Genesis 22:14 ). The meaning plainly is that the Lord sees and provides for the necessities of His servants,” according to the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia.

Giving Thanks

The Book of Psalms has plenty examples of thanksgiving within its pages upon pages of praise to the Lord. Read Psalm 145:16 & thank God for meeting your needs day by day. Truth2Freedom’s blog expresses it through a list of passages with thanksgiving and gratefulness, while Period Pastor Pad has been reflecting on the Book of Psalms since Lent of 2020 amid church closure due to the pandemic.

This season has taken many names and labels but I believe that we must watch and guard ourselves against what Daily Disciple called ” a season of discontentment.” Aside from being Black Friday, you know that there are daily necessities that God meets for you. Take a moment to thank God for the daily needs He provides for you. Thank God for His provisions that make your life smoother and easier. Thank God for all that He has done on your behalf. As CFoster20 simply put it in a recent post from earlier in November: Let’s be grateful.

Giving Back

Instead of buying items for your Christmas list, donate clothing or food. Give away old clothing that fills your closets that you will never wear again or better yet fit again. Give away canned goods and other nonperishable items to food drives or food banks in order to address hunger and food insecurity. Give back to help others today as a sign of your gratefulness for God’s provision for you and your family. Try to match God with your giving back. After all, the song says that you can’t beat God giving.

Go Beyond the Norm

Provide clothing or food directly to people on the street in your community. Meet people at the point of their need and embrace the opportunity to share with them. Take advantage of an extra day off if you have it and enter the streets with bundles of blankets and jackets, even socks, to share with people on the street and simply be a blessing to someone else today.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. – Matthew 5:16 (ESV)

As promised, I have included a Black Friday free resource for you.

Let Your Light Shine: Share It & Show It

My hope is that this resource might serve as an impactful part of your reading.  It serves as a foundation for some other work that we have coming up but it also stands out as a simple reminder of our root cause and calling as a believer.

Faith Impact Training is about inspiring hearts, minds and souls, particularly for outreach/ evangelism and service through good works.  Our mantra is making a difference today, while leaving an impact for life.  Part of our work includes the development and distribution of publications and trainings.

Stay tuned.  There is more to come.

Today marked another day in my personal journey on a week of works.   I am humbled by what I learn from Psalm 119 time and time again.  I was inspired to take initiative to take things further, especially with Black Friday approaching and our week of works is taking a totally different spin.

Check back on Friday for Life Path Multimedia’s Black Friday Freebie.   I will schedule a post for 8 AM EST on Friday to go live with a link to some new and fresh content that is totally free.  That means that you can access more of what Life Path Multimedia has to offer without having to use leftover cash from the early bird specials and sales.

I feel compelled and convicted to share openly and freely on this Black Friday.  There are a lot of ways that we can get caught up in the widespread consumerism of the holiday shopping season, but I want to shed light on going about things differently.  Just look at last year’s Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales stats to see where most people have accepted this type of spending as the norm.

Do not be mistaken, Life Path Multimedia makes money from our online stores for publications and downloads.  Even our Life Path Gear is a money-maker per se.  However, it is all with open and honest intent.  Our money fuels our ministry work.

This is not about raising enough money to “keep the lights on” or providing believers with an opportunity to “keep from robbing God.” It’s strictly about supporting the ministry of Life Path Mobile Ministries.  We want to do more.  We need to do more.  With your support, we can truly do more.


Leadership

With Life Path Multimedia pushing for  Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday, the least we could do is give you a freebie on a Friday. just because.
