DARKNESS TO LIGHT

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 AND LOVE

The grace (favor) of God and the love of God is unsearchable.  Why would He love me?   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  love us because He is love.  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.  

PRAISE GOD

Let us praise God today.  Jesus is coming to rule and reign on this earth!
Psalm 97:6-9 (Amplified)

With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!  Let the sea roar and all that fills it, the world, and those who dwell in it!  Let the rivers clap their hands; together let the hills sing for joy before the Lord, for He is coming to judge [and rule] the earth; with righteousness will He judge [and rule] the world, and the people with equity.

FAITHFULNESS

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!

ARMS OF LOVE

What do you think about?  Are your thoughts on the issues and events taking place in this world?  If that is what you think about, I dare say, your mind is in turmoil most of the time while you try to “figure out” the answers to today’s questions.  The Bible says that we are to set our minds and keep them set on the things of God. If we do that we can live here in peace.  If we don’t do that we will have very limited peace of mind.  Remember: This world is not our home!  We’re just passing through!  Heaven with all its glory waits just ahead!  Look up!  Jesus is coming SOON!
