Favorite Bible Verse

February 20, 2019

I could not resist this beautiful baby’s photo, along with my favorite Bible verse. But the next verse along with this one completes what God is telling us.

Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Stormy Days

January 28, 2019

On a cold stormy day, we do not feel like doing anything but stay inside, wrap in a warm fuzzy blanket and do nothing. When storms of life happen, we feel the same way. Just stay inside, wrap up in our sorrow and pain and do nothing. Our attitude reflects the storm, however, God tells us to behave differently in those circumstances. He is with us, will not forsake us and gives us the strength to go on to serve Him.

Isaiah 49:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Psalms 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Psalms 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Government

January 18, 2019

Today in the USA we see politicians , political parties, congressmen and women not able to come to agreement on several issues. The problem is not politics, the problem is the lack of wisdom from the source that could bring unity. Trust in God and decisions based on the Bible. The first President of the United States, George Washington, knew where to seek wisdom as he stated. If all of the people in government would seek the wisdom of God and stop the hate and fighting, we could see peace and unity once again.

As Christians it is our responsibility pray for our leaders, even if we do not agree with them or their agenda.

I Timothy 2:1&2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty

Quiet Time With God

January 5, 2019

Do you have a special time every day with God? It can be the most precious and productive few minutes of everyday. The first thing in the morning is best, but schedules may prevent that. You could get up a few minutes early, sometimes difficult, but definitely worth it. Whatever time of day you choose, read a passage of scripture, pray and allow God to speak to you.

You can ask yourself the following questions as you meditate on God’s Word:

Is there a sin I need to confess?

– Is there a promise I can claim?

– Is there an attitude I need to change?

– Is there a command I need to obey?

– Is there an example I can follow?

Enjoy your fellowship with God.

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

Prophecy Fulfilled

December 28, 2018

After the wise men’s visit, Joseph was warned in a dream to take Jesus and Mary and flee to Egypt. Herod was seeking to kill Jesus and not getting a report back from the wise men he had all the young children in Bethlehem killed. But Jesus was safe and the little family stayed in Egypt until Herod was dead.

Then once again Joseph had a dream and returned but went to live in Nazareth where Jesus grew from childhood until He started His earthly ministry.

God’s Word is true. Every prophesy concerning Jesus birth was fulfilled down to the last detail. Many people leave Jesus in the manger as a baby but do not believe future events also predicted in the Bible. Jesus is the Messiah, He did die on the cross and He is coming again to rule and reign over all the world. Are you ready for a great future with Jesus the coming King?

Matthew 2:13-15 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

The Angel, Gabriel

December 13, 2018

Only two angels are mentioned by name in the New Testament. Gabriel and Michael. Gabriel was an archangel who was a messenger sent by God to deliver news to Zacariah and then later to Mary. Gabriel is also mentioned in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Angels had an important role in the birth of the Lord Jesus. Their presence brought fear into the hearts of the people they appeared to according to scripture.

We tend to forget that people like Zacariah, Mary and Joseph were just ordinary people that God used in extraordinary circumstances. If Gabriel appeared to us today we too would be afraid. As Christians we can look forward to the time when we will see angels in Heaven. What a wonderful future we have and there will be no fear, only wonder and beauty as we behold Heaven and meet Jesus face to face.

Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

(It has been a blessing to see the symbols of Christmas and we look now to the people that the Bible recorded about the birth of Jesus)

A Cup of Coffee

November 30, 2018

Most of us start our day with a cup of coffee. The most important way to start our mornings though, is to spend it with Jesus. We must not neglect to read His Word and pray. That is a perfect way to start our day along with the coffee.

Psalms 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

God’s Forgiveness

November 17, 2018

Thank the Lord that He forgives us and we have Salvation and then as Christians He forgives us when we sin. God is faithful.
