Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law ,but by faith in Jesus Christ. For no one will ever be saved by obeying the law.
I am a very satisfied Christian that loves the Lord for he first loved me,God is so good my 2 adult children are also saved and 2 of 5 grand.I enjoy fishing,writing,music and my family oh yea I do enjoy my computer and meeting new people from all over the world.
To God Be The Glory The word of God is very important it builds up your faith and helps you grow closer to the Lord.1Corinthians 1:18 I know very well how foolish the message of the cross sounds to those who are on the road to destruction.But we who are being saved recognize this message as the very power of God.(19)As the scriptures say,”I will destroy human wisdom and discard their most brilliant idea.(20)So where does this leave the philosophers,the scholars,and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made them all look foolish and has shown their wisdom to be useless nonsense.Since God in his wisdow saw to it that the world would never find him through human wisdom,he has used our foolish preaching to save all who will believe.Please finish that chapter God’s word is the only Truth, John 14:6 Jesus told him,I am the way,the truth,and…
Give that phrase some thought-really with so much going on in our world so many changes it’s so great to know that Jesus cannot ever be changed! He will love us as we are forever I keep thinking of myself with all of my flaws and hang ups it’s so amazing to be loved and excepted just as I am I don’t need anyone’s approval. God has excepted me in Christ Jesus my mind is being renewed through God’s word and we are being changed daily Praise God. God has made us Holy and excepted by the blood of His dear Son! Can you imagine the chaos if Jesus could be changed by man we would not stand a chance in this world But God! Because God loves us and chose us and called us He said
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
2 Corinthians 4:18
Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes
Though there are many changes going on rest in Jesus knowing that He is for you and not against you Hallelujah!
19 He was then almost one hundred years old; but his faith did not weaken when he thought of his body, which was already practically dead, or of the fact that Sarah could not have children.
God is so amazing! He can truly do anything without regard God is not limited at all even though our faith sometimes weakens. Wow it seems as though Abraham had fantastic and strong faith but we must look at what God brought him through before he got to this place of faith so that he was not moved looking back is good especially doing times of trials because it gives us insight we can also see what God has brought us through. Our faith does grow stronger as we move through the different trials God has prepared for us He knows how much we can bear! I get so excited thinking about the power and authority of God he has taken everything into consideration concerning us so be encouraged today wherever you are in your walk with the Lord knowing that he will never leave or forget you no matter what age you are nor does it matter what condition your body is in God can do great things for you and through you so stand strong and see the amazing things God has planned for you.
Jesus loved Lazarus just as He loves us! Can you imagine the restraint Jesus had to use when He got that message from Martha and Mary remember Jesus was flesh and blood like us.When He hears our prayers I believe He has to restrain Himself, because He’s all about doing His Father’s will.
For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.
John 6:38 NLT
But if we wait on Him we’ll get the answer that’s best for our situation, His timing is so different from ours and we do have problems waiting.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord . “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
Isaiah 55:8 NLT
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
LAM 3:22-23 ESV
God is great and nothing is to hard for Him! So hold on God will show up on time!
I can only imagine oh Lord that day in the garden when You went alone to pray.
I can only imagine the things that pressed You down and weighed so heavy upon You .
I know You could see us rejecting your Father ,I know You could see us lying and stealing and cheating treating others You love so much wrong.
I know You could see us hating each other as You toiled in prayer .I know You could see us as we all strayed .I know You could see the children being dragged away just as they started to play. I know You felt the pain as Mother’s cried again and again why,why did my child have to die.
I know You could hear the lies we often tell making promises we cannot keep.
I know You see us crying out for peace yet we fail to fall down at your feet.
I know You can see us being hated because of the color of our skin,we fail to see we’re all kin because from Adam and Eve we did come.
In the garden late that night all of these things pressed You inside and out! I know You could see the violence that’s going on in our world today,and then to our Father You had to say not my will but yours I will obey. They need me Dear Father ,they need me each day so for their sins this price I will pay.
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit,
I Peter 3:18 NKJV
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
II Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
4 Then a herald shouted out, “People of all races and nations and languages, listen to the king’s command!5 When you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes, and other musical instruments,t bow to the ground to worship King Nebuchadnezzar’s gold statue. 6 Anyone who refuses to obey will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.”
This threat could have easily made Shadrach,Meshach and Abednego bow down but it did not. And the reason why is because of who was standing up in them. The same God that created the whole universe and everything in it. We would do well to remember in the midst of our disappointments,heartache and all of the painful situations we go through,that Jesus Christ is standing up in us. And he will deliver,hold keep us no matter how bad the situation gets. This world is changing more and more each day and we see many fainting because of fear,but that’s not how Jesus wants us to be. Jesus has all power and he can take us through anything,we need not bow down in fear.
16Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”
I love these scriptures in Daniel and we need to have the same attitude,They said O Nebuchadnezzar,our God “is able to save us,and he will rescue us from your power,but if he doesn’t”. Praise God even if he doesn’t that’s okay,because in Christ Jesus we are secure forever,and Heaven awaits us “HALLELUJAH”! We must get more Heavenly minded because the trials and tribulations are getting worse and fainting is not what we want nor is that what Jesus wants.
