This Is The Day The Lord Has Made! By Karen Rowe


Dear Readers,

Welcome!  It is good to be back!  There is a story of Job; and there is a story of you.  I pray this message is strength to your story … as a light to your feet and a lamp to your path!  Will you quit serving God just because the devil does what he does?  Do you know and believe in the love God has for you?  When things get difficult, know this is a story that God is taking us through now!  When we take a stand for Jesus; when we make a commitment to our faith in Christ … that’s when God comes.

God allows people to talk about us -as people talked about Job; and as people rejected Jesus; BUT God won’t allow Satan to mess with your soul.  Friends, from where does your help come from?  I pray this is a help to you; and in Christ, I believe it will be, because it is of my faith in Him; and it is my own testimony.

This may sound simple, but until the challenge comes and we experience the negativity come at us, …. well nothing is simple until we get it.  Yet, when understanding comes, then we can encourage each other in the testimony as we receive it from the Lord.

A reminder from 2018 is the same as in 2020!

The next time negativity comes to you, remind yourself; and speak it to yourself often:  “It’s right to say nice things.”  Pray, “Lord help me to say it from my heart; and not just from my mind;” and you will get relief!  I pray Silence right now to give people room to repent from speaking division among God’s People; and how can you make a difference in this world? … by abiding in the Cause of Christ!

Sure, people will be people and not all people will like what you say, but speak kindness anyway!  Don’t let Satan cause you to doubt.  Keep believing in Jesus; and keep on speaking His message.

Love is Patient and Kind … and you are called to serve the Lord in the power of His Love!  Yet, Satan will lie to you and tell you what God gives you is not good enough! ???  Really?  What a lie!  Greater is God in you than he that is in the world.   Tell Satan who you’re believing; and serve the Lord in the power of His love!  Teach in the power of His knowledge and Minister in the power of His Holy Spirit and to God be the glory!  Later in the Devotion, I believe the Lord led me to write this message, that Jesus died to Make Peace possible between us and God; and Jesus died to Make Peace Possible between our relationships with each other.  Don’t let Satan deceive into giving your peace away!  Speak Peace and Shout Joy!

Give us a kind word to say …

You end division by speaking to the end, If we have nothing nice to say about ___, then we will say nothing at all.  Spin that around too, We will not speak anything at all if we have no nice thing to say.  BUT Lord, Give us a kind word to say; and let it be from our heart … and not just from our mind.

let it be from our heart

… and not just from our mind.

Friends, we can’t help what comes to our mind, but we can help what comes out of our mouth.  We can’t allow ourselves to go down into a pit – and listen to the wrong voices tell us that what God gives us is not good enough.  Friends, speak to yourself, “All things are possible because I believe!”  And Believe it!  If (when) Satan tries to get you to move “off the path that is well lit in Christ for your traveling in Peace with God” tell him (speak to the enemy God’s Word), “My Master, my Leader, the God that I serve told me; gave me permission to speak of things as not as through there were.”

Question: “What is meant by ‘call those things which are not as though they were’ (Romans 4:17)?”

Faith (Hebrews 11:1)

Friends, the devil is a liar.    The Bible also says, Rejoice in the Lord Always!  A G A I N, the Bible says, Rejoice!  What are you doing?  You are believing in the Truth, and trusting in the Lord!  And, … How would we know we could trust in the Lord if we didn’t have the opportunity to trust in Him?

Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word.

This Is The Day The Lord Has Made! By Karen Rowe

As I sit up in the morning preparing to hear the light to my path for this Today, the Holy Spirit is so kind to help me overcome what people do to us to see the position Jesus calls us to rise up to.

I hope this is a blessing to you too.

Let us begin by looking thru the lenses of God’s Word!

Who is the real enemy?
And what is the enemy’s goal?
Ultimately, whose battle is it?
Ultimately who has already won The Victory?

Yes! There is Victory in Jesus!

But do we see what is really going on down here?
Confusion? Envy? Selfish Ambition?

To Divide what Jesus has Unified!

Our relationship with God and our relationship with each other that is solidified thru and by Jesus, WHO made OUR Peace with God & OUR Peace with each other!

Yet, what is really going on here?

People will lie about you, setting the scene to DIVIDE. People will mistreat you setting the scene to get you to move? But it really comes down to our focus remaining IN faith IN Jesus, who qualified to save souls from this world.

Remind yourself D A I L Y who Jesus is FOR you & who you are TO God.

Our mind, our will, our emotions – the three that make up our soul. Are you willing to DIVIDE FROM Grace, for the right to be human?

The battle is real, but the goal is God’s for us to know & believe in the Love God has for us, to abide in God and God in us.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. Abide in following the Love of Jesus and stand in that light unconditionally UNMOVED to convert back to your human nature … NOW that God has blessed us with a new spiritual ability in Christ!

If you offend someone, pray for Wisdom. Was the offense to their human nature (the Pride of Life)? Or was the offense from defending your own pride to be right?

How much do you love Jesus? Enough to PRAY for those who hurt you? Enough to be patient and kind to those who tell lies about you? Enough to love them as God has so loved you?

Insert your situation …  The Water is Moving!

What is this unity God calls us to walk in Church?
What are we afraid of ? And what are we fighting against – but the spirits of the underworld, but with the goal of the Wisdom that comes to us from above.

There are two types of Wisdom, but the one that comes down to us from above is 1st of all pure, which means it doesn’t leave you double-minded about wanting God’s help to change your mind.

Then the Fruit & what is THIS LOVE?

Pray 1st …

Look in the mirror.
The smile you see is the Reflection of Christ Jesus in you that the world is waiting to see.
To God be the Glory!
If you need help smiling?
Speak to your self the Truth you base your faith on:
“All things are possible to me because I believe!”


What is it about the Word?

Love in Christ,




Holy Spirit encourage the readers today.  Lift our minds higher to God’s Thoughts.  Bless those who will receive.  And, keep molding our hearts to be always ready to bloom for the glory of God to be a blessing to us all.

and pray …in the Spirit of the Most Holy God.  God knows what He is doing.

Love in Christ,
Karen Rowe

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
