The Bible says we are to pray about everything with all kinds of prayer.  If there is a need for peace, that is the prayer we pray.  There is the prayer of thanksgiving, of praise, of adoration, of petition on behalf of ourselves or someone else, and the prayer of confessing our sin and asking for forgiveness. When we pray we should always pray God’s Word concerning our need.  He honors His word.  If we will spend time in His presence praying His Word, we will have a sense of well-being as well as the answer to our prayer.  God, our Father is good.  His love surrounds us.  His favor rests upon His children.  In His presence we are surrounded with His loving kindness and tender mercy and peace.   How marvelous is the time spent with Him!


God, our Father, is so lovely, so good, so kind and so caring that He knows every step we take and every thought we think. He clears out our path as we walk toward Him. He is acquainted with our ways and He knows every word that comes out of our mouth. He knows every step we take whether it is going out or coming in. He knows all this about each of us, yet He loves us. He sees us through the blood of Jesus. Thank you, Father, for Jesus. Thank You, Jesus for Your great love for us and for Your victory over death, hell, and the grave! We are a blessed and favored people. THANK YOU, GOD


May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you and give you peace. May you always walk in His ways and honor Him by giving Him first place in Your lives. May you always trust in Him and not in your own thoughts or plans. May the loving kindness and tender mercies of the Lord follow you all the days of your life, and may you dwell in the house of the Lord forever.


Every day we are reminded that our safety is directly related to our faith and trust in God, our Father. He is our shield and our fortress. He is our hiding place. God Almighty, who created all things including the sun, the moon, and the stars also created mankind. He knows who YOU are and He loves YOU. Run to safety and hide in His loving arms. He will not withhold any good thing from those of us who love Him and strive to live a life that is pleasing to Him.


Our God is our fortress and our deliverer.  (Psalm 71:1-3 KJV)
In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.  Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.  Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.


May we learn to walk in the Truth of the Word of God and praise His name.  (Psalm 86:11-13 KJV)

Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.  I will praise thee, O Lord, my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.  For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.


Have you worked hard in this life to get all "your eggs" in one basket only to find out that the bottom of the basket is gone? That makes you feel totally defeated. Your hope and faith is deflated. When we put our hope and faith in people or things, we will be disappointed. If we have our faith and hope in God, He will fill us with peace and joy. He will never fail us nor forsake us. Our lives will be bubbling over with the joy of the Lord, no matter what has happened to "our eggs"!


Jesus paid the entire price for our sins on the cross, but our victory came when death and the grave were no longer able to hold him.  He arose victorious over death, hell, and the grave and we now have victory in Jesus!  Luke 24:1-6a KJV)
Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared and certain others with them.  And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.  And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold two men stood beside them in shining garments: and they were afraid and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them. WHY SEEK YE THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD?  HE IS NOT HERE, BUT IS RISEN...(emphasis mine)


We all want to live our lives in peace and love without contention or frustration or hate, or anger, but that seems to be impossible in these days.  What is our answer?  In Timothy, Paul said we have not been given a spirit of fear, although we sometimes embrace fear, but we have been given power, love, and a sound mind.  We must allow the mind of Christ in us - that sound mind - to have priority in our thinking.  We are exhorted to hold fast to the sound words of God and to know who we have believed.  We must be fully persuaded that He is able to keep us in today’s world and to bring us through to our heavenly home in victory.  PRAISE GOD!!  HE IS ABLE!!


There are many things in the world today that can cause us frustration, anger, disgust, and fear. Jesus said that there would be things hard to deal with and to bear in the last days. That is where we are living. He also said do not fear because I am with you. We must hold tightly to His hand and look up! Do not look down or around. When we look up our eyes are fixed on the eternal things of God which are all good. When we look down or around we don't see very much that good, but we see much that is bad. That's the reason Jesus said to look up! Look up! Jesus is coming soon!
