I ran across this in my daily research and thought it would be a great message to share with everyone.
God is with you wherever you go
He is always at your right hand,
When you pray He hears your every word
and promises to understand.
We may call upon Him day or night
for our Father needs no sleep
Psalms 121, 1 Sam 2:9 shows
His godly ones He’ll keep.
God knows our needs before we ask
and guides us through each trial or task.
For more than we may begin to conceive
will God do for us, if we only believe.
Christ’s return is very close
I can feel His breath on my nape
He is coming soon to claim His own
but the wicked will not escape.
Gen 21:22; Josh 1:9; Isa 41:13; Psa 18:6; Psa 50:15;
Psa 55:22; Psa 121:3,4; 1 Sam2:9; Luke 12:30; 1 Cor 10:13;
Eph 3:20; John 14:23; Mark 11:23; Matt 7:7;
May we ever be appreciative of God and His love and closeness with us. The time is coming when we will share a home with Him as long as we remain faithful.
I ran across the following quote on gifts from Oren Arnold and thought it was well worth sharing.
These gifts sound great and I would agree with the author that we would do well to offer them to others. However, these gifts fail in comparison to the gift we received from God the Father and His Son.
As we think about the many gifts we have given to others and the many gifts we have received, let us never forget the greatest gift of all, eternal life in Heaven.
However you view tomorrow, view it with the understanding we are not promised a tomorrow, it is a gift from God and should be used to bless and thank Him.
Do you ever stop and take a moment to think about the term character? Do you ever wonder what kind of character you have? Our character is an important aspect of who we are and is something that we should think about and try to improve on a regular basis. The above quotes show people of the world understand this, and more importantly, Christians must understood what kind of Character God’s expects them to have.
Some examples of people of good character from scripture
God is pleased when His children grow in character
Ways to develop our character
Control our thoughts”
Guarding our hearts
Keeping good company
Practicing Christian virtues
As I close this post I wish to remind everyone why a Christian must be of good character…Men and women of character will set a good example for others to follow, and their godly reputation will be evident to all
As I sit back and consider the political decisions that have been made recently, I can’t help but appreciate the above quote. There seems to be some belief in the world today that freedom means I can do whatever I want without any consequences. This is purely the belief of those who want to impose their view on same sex unions. (Note I did not say gay marriage or even marriage because these are not marriage as ordained by God who instituted marriage but rather civil unions created by man who has no right).
True freedom for the christian today exists in the way it was presented in the above quotation. It is our right to stand up for the Word of God and do what we ought. We need to continue to preach marriage as God intended and not be afraid to use our freedom of speech to stand up and teach the truth. we must have the same mindset Paul had when he addressed the Romans.
I pray that we will all use our freedom to do what God requires while not allowing others misconceptions on freedom keep us from doing His will.
Precious Lord, take my hand,
Lead me on, let me stand,
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.
Through the storm, through the night,
Lead me on to the Light,
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me on.
Thomas A. Dorsey
God can lead you through.
