GIVE THANKS

May we give thanks to God for His faithfulness. His promises are sure and certain! Psalm 98:1-4 (Amplified)


O sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have wrought salvation for Him. The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness has He openly shown in the sight of the nations. He has [earnestly] remembered His mercy and loving-kindness, His truth and faithfulness toward the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have witnessed the salvation of our God. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth and sing for joy, yes, sing praises!

SIGNS

When God created the heaven and earth, He made the sun, moon, and stars on day four. He said they were for signs and seasons, for days and years. The word signs can also mean signals. When Jesus came as a baby, a star led the wisemen to Jerusalem and on to the place where He was in Bethlehem. We see signs now in the heavens that we have not seen before. Recently a comet passed by mars and the happening was a "million years" experience. A pulsating star beaming the energy of 10 million suns was seen. It was the brightest pulsar ever recorded. Are we "seeing" signs in the stars that Jesus talked about in Luke? I don’t know, but I think that if we need to get anything "straightened out" with God in our lives, we need to get to it! What do you think?

DARK VALLEY

Are you walking through a "dark time" in your life? All of us have seasons of time in our lives that are "dark". What do we do? We must not let this darkness overtake us and cause our zest for living to be drained out. The devil comes to steal from us and if we let him in, he WILL steal everything. What do we do? We hold tightly to the hand of our Shepherd as we walk through the dark valley and trust Him to bring us safely out of the darkness. Each day will be brighter than the day before and soon we will walk from darkness into the glorious light of the presence of God!

HIDING PLACE

Because of situations in our lives, there are times when we need a "hiding place". David wrote about this in Psalm 32. In verse 5 and 6, he said he acknowledge his sin and iniquity and received forgiveness from God, and in verses 7 and 8 (Amp) he said "You are a hiding place for me; You Lord, preserve me from trouble. You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah [pause and calmly think about that]!


I [the Lord] will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Praise God!

GRACE

The grace (favor) of God and the love of God is unsearchable. Why would He love me? He loves us because he chose to love us. He loves us all the time, even when we are not doing right in His eyes. His great desire is for us to return that love to Him. You may say that you don’t "feel" anything! Feelings have nothing to do with a decision to love someone. God doesn’t love us because He "feels" like loving us. He chose to love us. We have to choose to love Him. If we will do that, we will in return receive joy unspeakable and know the glory of His presence in our lives.

YOU ARE LOVED

Do you feel rejected? Do you think that no one really cares about you? If you have chosen Jesus as Savior, you need to understand that you are accepted by God and highly favored! We are accepted and highly favored only because of our position in Jesus, but many people do not allow what the Bible says to change their thinking concerning the love of God. God loves His children and wants the very best for them. Our problem is we sometimes do not allow His love to wrap around us so that we feel secure in His love. Let us rest in His arms of love.

SING TO THE LORD

Let us sing to the Lord, today. He has wonderfully and graciously blessed us! Psalm 96:1-4 (Amplified)


O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth! Sing to the Lord, bless (affectionately praise) His name; show forth His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among the peoples. For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He is to be reverently feared and worshiped above all [so called] gods
