NOTE from Ron Mainse: My Dad does not know I’m adding this to his blog, but I wanted all of his blog-reader friends to know that today is a special day… Dad’s 76th birthday! Happy Birthday, Dad! Thanks for continuing to be a blessing to so many. I love you.

Key Verse: Exodus 8:13a

So the Lord did according to the word of Moses.

Moses spoke, and God backed him up with supernatural power. Some have used this reality to get God to do their will. No, no, we are to do God’s will. First we find out the will of God, and then we speak, and God acts accordingly. Jesus’ word was always effective, 100% of the time. Why? Because He could say, “The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do” (John 5:19). Jesus got up very early each morning to spend time with His Father in prayer (Mk 1:35). Jesus functioned as a Man filled with the Holy Spirit. He was, is, and ever shall be fully God, but He laid aside the exercise of His Diety. He took time to find His Father’s plan for the new day, and then did what His Father wanted to do. This is also the way we can know what to speak, and God will do that which we speak as He did for Moses.


Father God, I want what You want. Help me to speak out that which You give me to speak so that “Your will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” I pray this in the Name of Jesus who always, without fail, did Your perfect will. Amen!


I remember Norma-Jean coming home with a booklet entitled, “Hung by the Tongue.” It pointed out the power of our words for good or evil, for positive or negative results. Jesus never ever used His essential divinity for selfish purposes. He lived as a Spirit-filled human being. The temptation of Jesus is an example of this (Matt 4:3-4). He could’ve turned the stones into bread as Satan suggested, but He refused to help Himself in this way. It’s sad to report that there are those today who claim “prosperity” for themselves, twisting the Scriptures, seeking to manipulate God for their own purposes, taking advantage of their position of influence to manipulate people into giving sacrifically so that the manipulator may prosper. Simon the sorcerer did this. Please look this up as I have done (Acts 8:9). Run from those who, like Simon, are “claiming that he was someone great,” and verse 10 says, “All gave heed to him from the least to the greatest saying, ‘This man is the great power of God.'”

Yours for hearing from God each morning and then speaking and doing His will,

  13. Dear David- I know this might sound strange on a day you are being shower with good wishes and blessng, but it is my prayer for you, to experience a deeper relationship with our Lord, far deeper than you have experienced so far, which is pretty deep.

  28. Happy 76th Birthday David I pray you have great day with family and friends as you celebrate on this special day. Thank you again for your blog and sharing with us all what the Lord puts on your heart.

  29. A Blessed Happy Birthday from an ex-Red Laker. I tell people now that “David Mainse slept in my bed”. Although I didn’t give in to God for many years, it’s people like yourself that slowly impressed God’s truth on me…and my mother’s prayers.

  30. Happy Birthday David I wish you health & happiness & many more years to come.
    I have been watching 100 Huntley Street since early in the year. My life has made a huge turn around. I just joined 100 words about a week ago. Thankyou so much for all you do (all of you). I is good to see that there are so many people who are working to make a difference in the world in the name of Jesus. Thankyou again.
    PS: Thankyou to Reynold for the lovely photos.

  31. A Blessed Happy Birthday David from an ex-Red Laker. Only God knew that there would still be a connection 54 years later. It was through the influence of Godly people like yourselves that, years later, drew me to my point of submission. My claim to fame is when I tell people that “David Mainse slept in my bed”. Thank you for your daily influence on our lives through your blog.

  32. Happy Birthday David! Psalm 84, especially verses 11,12. Thank you for blessing me/us with your daily 100 words. It is a privilege to hear from you ‘personally’ each morning. Blessings to you and your family…

  33. Happy 76th old boy! May you be a 1\2 an hour in heaven before the devil knows you are dead! ( thank you, Irish Rovers! ) Many happy returns!

  40. Happy Birthday DAVID
    You must have prayed to share the perfect peace you have found with the LORD for it was a most peaceful sunday in the Slave Lakes and districts in Alberta this Aug. 12th after several days of thunder storms, and broken trees, many families were able to re-unite after last years fires. In 1978 I saw the turin schroud for the first time and a picture of a family of 4 fleeing thru a raging forest fire and now you are showing that schroud again and I have seen a great survival of many families that have just gone thru the real thing. BIRTHDAYS are truly a wonderfull thing. xoxox brotherly Don

  41. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU DAVID MAINSE!!!! The Lord has blessed you and kept and as He continues to do so, be encouraged that your obedience to God’s plans for your life is an encouragement to me to continue to diligently seek the Lord with all my might even in my “senior years”. May you enjoy many more years to come!!!!
