Be Still

Usually we only quote and share Jeremiah 29:11 but I want to call your attention to Jeremiah 29:1~10 God is encouraging his people to settle down let your sons and daughters get married build your homes plant your gardens work for the peace and prosperity of the city,  In other words get comfortable for  you will be here for awhile! In the midst of our hard places we want out as soon as possible but God’s timing is so different from ours. God also told them to pray and so should we  while waiting on God’s time to be fulfilled, it’s so hard to be still while waiting on God we feel we must be doing something but most of the time what we do is make a mess!

We also feel like God has forgotten us but that is never going to happen He loves us to much! For then comes the reassuring promise of Jeremiah 29:11

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes His plans for us are greater than what we’re going through right now so be still and let God do what He has planned the end results will be wonderful.

Excepted

img_0476Give 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.

Isaiah 43:1

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes

Ephesians 1:4

Though there are many changes going on rest in Jesus knowing that He is for you and not against you Hallelujah!

History!

praisegodHistory is supposed to be a teacher we are suppose to learn from our Past Sins! But if you follow any of the many Social Media Sites or watch the News at all ,then as you can hear and see we have not learned much! Black is a color not a Race! I’ve learned a few things

1. Anger changes Nothing !

James 1:19,20  Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

2. Holding Grudges Does Not Work It Causes To Much Pain

But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive you your sins too.”

3. Speaking Ill Of Another, Guilty at Times Don’t Work

Ephesian 4:29

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

4. So I know What, No Not What But Who ?

The “Answer” to the Evil in Mans Heart Is Jesus! For He is the Only One who does Heart Changing! Nothing down through the years of “Racism” has worked different programs ,speakers,  hate fear None is working! We need to “Repent” and call on Jesus as never before. The same old Ill’s from the past are raising their heads —- But God

Romans 12:19

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

In all that we are going through now God has a Plan and He will accomplish it . God still controls His world and All of the people that live in it. We need to wise up and Recognize God and His Son Jesus Christ, Now!
