Devotional thought: I was new in my faith many years ago as I sit in a new church far from home. They did something that shocked me. They were taking communion while sitting in the pew. (In my home Church unless you where ill or unable to be on the knees, communion was always given to one on their knees.) I was shocked and prayed to the Lord. "Lord is this is a abomination." His small still voice came powerful to my Spirit and I knew the answer was from Him. "Child it is not the position of the body but of the heart" I Jenny812 have never looked at things the same way since. I am His clay and He my potter. I am glad to by on His potters wheel.

Psalms 100
1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. K.J.V. in Public domain

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: K.J.V. in Public domain

Luke 10: 38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
John 11:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. K.J.V. in Public domain

Choice and Lesson focus:
Mary chose to hear Jesus and sit at His feet.
Martha chose to feed the guest and her family.

Devotional:
Martha made A good choice but Mary chose the better choice. Why?
Martha felt she knew what Jesus wanted and she needed.
Jesus had a better way. He always does.
Martha needed to ask Jesus what He wanted her to do?
Mary knew to sit and listen to Her Lord in love in total submission and then obey His Word and will in actions.
What will we do today???

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.N.I.V.

Isaiah 40: 29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. N.I.V.

Proverbs 29:6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare:
but the righteous doth sing and rejoice. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Psalms 1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Devotional thought: Fear Not! When I fall He will help me when I call on Him.

Remember He spoke and the world was created, the storm stopped, demons fled, death loses it power, and sins are forgiven. He lives and can do more for you and me if we submit to and follow Him.

Jesus in the Creation: Colossians 1:15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. N.I.V.

Jesus Stopped the raging storm:
Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Death has no power over Jesus:
Jesus said, "Lazarus come forth". John 11:43
Lazarus came back to life after being dead for 4 days.

John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. K.J.V. in Public domain

A healthy Thought for the day: Sometimes we eat to ease pain, fear, or troubles. I sure have been guilty of this in my life. We can take courage for their is help and hope in times of distress or/and pain.

Bible verses of help and encouragement:

Jesus said, " And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—" John 14:16

2 Corinthians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. N.I.V.

HUGS from Heaven!!! JESUS love you!

Matthew 11: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” N.I.V.

Psalms 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake. N.I.V.

Comfort:

I was tried but headed home. Then I had to take a detour but missed a turn off and found myself lost and in need of a road map or even a compass. The road was winding and I had lost all scene of direction. I humbly asked for direction and the wisdom of how to get back to the road I needed to get home. I came to a town name believe it our not "Paradise" but for me it was my Paradise lost. I asked directions and the man laughed at me and asked how I had got to this small town in the middle of no where? Well I explained what happen and he gave me clear instruction, I thanked him, and I was soon back on the right road home. Joy! Happiness and soon I was HOME!

Devotional thought: America is now in the same place, we have lost our way. We were alway a good people. Yes we had some bad people among us but for the most part we were a Golden rule people (Treat others the way you want to be treated) and God fearing. We have got off that path and now we are in trouble .

We are in need of a Savior, for we are eternal being and in danger of being lost , in a body that will die, but a soul that will go somewhere. Jesus gave us hope beyond the grave and eternal life in a new body that will live forever, in a real perfect paradise. When God made us in the beginning we were perfect and eternal but man rebelled and did what God told Him not to and we were in trouble. God made a way to escape a eternal prison made for the rebellious fallen angels and not for us. Yet! God gave us a choice because He loved us. He did not force us to obey. He put the truth in our hearts and let us choose Heaven or hell. good or evil. Right or wrong. His Golden Rule or selfishness and eternal loss. .

Devotional thought in a Bible verse:
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. K.J.V. in Public domain

Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. K.J.V. in Public domain

Romans 13:12 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. 11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. K.J.V. in Publid domain



”It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Patrick Henry

YES! With Jesus when we our born into His Kingdom we have a heavenly home.

John 14:1-6
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. K.J.V. in public domain

When I feel helpless!
When I am fearful!
When tears come!
When I need directions!
I know whom I can trust!
I know who is bigger than the problem.

Luke 9:25 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? 26 Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. K.J.V. in Public domain


Devotional thought: Let us stand for Him in a world that uses His name as a curse Word. We shall be rewarded if we do what is right.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. K.J.V. in P.D.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. K.J.V. in P.D.


2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. K.J.V. in Public domain

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. N.I.V.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. K.J.V. in Public domain

What will surely come to pass in the future:
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. N.I.V.

God calls us to repentance:
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

God's part:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. NIV (SON=JESUS)
John 3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. N.I.V.

My Part: Believe, trust, love, and more!!
Mark 12:30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Devotional thought: He tell us to FEAR NOT! Fear is faith in total failure. Yet! The Master had compassion and love for His disciples as He leads them and teaches them in the way of faith and truth. He to will lead and guide us as we walk with Him.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Let us Focus on this:
A kind word.
A good deed.
A gentle answer.
A healing touch.
A faithful action.
A truthful faith
A powerful victory.
A enduring remembrance
A Word of love from the
message of Hope in JESUS
Christ our Lord from God's Holy Bible.

Devotional Thought: What is more valuable than diamonds or gold?

Job 28:
15 It cannot be bought with the finest gold,
nor can its price be weighed out in silver.
16 It cannot be bought with the gold of Ophir,
with precious onyx or lapis lazuli.
17 Neither gold nor crystal can compare with it,
nor can it be had for jewels of gold.
18 Coral and jasper are not worthy of mention;
the price of wisdom is beyond rubies.
19 The topaz of Cush cannot compare with it;
it cannot be bought with pure gold. N.I.V.

Good morning let's go into the presents of the Lord, Let us draw close to Him in love, worship and go after His will as a child going for sweets and treasures. His word will bless our hearts and souls and His present will be sweet as we sit at his feet an learn.

Psalms 100:1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. K.J.V. in Public domain

2 Chronicles 7:14 2 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. K.J.V. in Public domain

Devotional thought: Jesus had compassion on the multitude. Look how He cared for the needs of the people. When they were in need of food he feed them. When the people were in need of healing or deliverance He meet the need. When some died and He went to the funeral he raised them up. He taught with power and authority. He stilled the storms. He lives what He taught. He was His best sermon to the lost world ever preached. His life was even was a perfect example of how to treat one's enemy even from the cross. Yes He Forgave them! He teaches us to do the same. We can follow Jesus One day at a time. He said he would never leave us. With our Lord we know the best is yet to come. He has made a way for us all. HUGS Jenny emoticon

Think on this: What does the Word teach us about the law and Grace,

Psalms 19: 7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Galatians 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. K.J.V. in Public Domain

2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, K.J.V. in Public Domain

Matthew 25: Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Proverbs 19:17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. K.J.V. in Public Domain
Psalms 14:5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Psalms 69:33 For the Lord heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Jesus said,
Luke 6:20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Devotional thought: Jesus always does more than he asked of us. He feed the hungry and care for the hurting, he never went to a funeral that He did not raise the dead. We can not save the poor for eternity. (first human family gave us a generic problem of sin when they were disobedient to our HOLY Creator God. all descendent were and are flawed with a sin nature.) As sinners we all were all poor and in need of Salvation. No poor sinner can approach heaven because of sin. God is Holy! Jesus made a way. Holy and perfect Jesus went to the cross to pay for sins and in His love, and mercy paid for our sins and gave us a gift of our only way a kind of pure love ticket to heaven.

Overview of God's plan to safe us from sin and eternal death.
John 3:15 hat whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. K.J.V. in Public domain

John 14:1-6
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.K.J.V. in Public domain

-Luke 15 www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search
=L
uke%2015;Matthew%2011:28-30;%20John%R>203:15-21&version=KJV


Jesus shows us His love for the kids gone wrong. He calls them to His self. No one loves them more.

1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness K.J.V. in Public Domain

Another Son is in the story and it is to him this story is told also by our Lord.

Note in the first of the chapter Luke 15 who is with Jesus. The publicans and sinners
are with Jesus. Those who were unclean in the eyes of the religious and the Jews. God does not love the sins of those in sin but He loves the sinner. We must look closely at the attitude of the Pharisees and scribes who are showing the same com-temp for the publicans and sinners as did the other brother in the parable.

Jesus is giving them a look at the Heavenly Father love and heart for the lost. We can see clearly that He is calling the religious and self righteous to see His love for the lost sons and as well as themselves. We see the unforgiving other son is a picture of Pharisees and scribes who are in need of God grace and forgiveness as must as needed by the periodical son.

Last night I was taking a stroll in the back yard. Birds were singing as no orchestra could play. I looked up at the sky and was in awe at God's handwork and the wonders of Gods creation. I had to praise Him. Psalms 104 and Psalms 19 www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search
=P
salms%20104,%20Psalms%2019%20%20&verR>sion=KJV

Psalms33:1 Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
2 Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
4 For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.
5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
10 The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
13 The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.K.J.V. In Public domain

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Devotional thought: I lost my way when I was young going home because of a detour. I must have missed a sign but i found myself far from home and finally asked directions. The elderly gentleman laughed and said you were headed __to ___. How did you get here? Seek him first and He will direct you in the right direction. Many Christians have found themselves in the same place by life's detours.

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

Devotional: Love is key.

1 Corinthians 13:4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth:..K.J.V. in Public domain

John 14 12-14 NKJ

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

Devotional thought: Life can be full of trials, trouble, and etc. All kind of things try for our attention but Let's keep Focused on Jesus. Jesus will help us do as the Bible passage directs.

Hebrews 1:1-Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Devotional thought: Jesus Word does not give us a out. We are to Go but His way. Let stop and sit at His feet to get our assignment for the day before the day starts. We may e the one that makes a difference today in some one's world. A preacher once was asked to clean a bathroom in a filling stating. Not one word said at first about the mission to win souls but in the end of His walk of obedience a near empty Church was full and a town was changed. Dare to obey and see what God can do?

Matthew 18: 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. K.J.V. in Public Domain

2 Kings 13: 4 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord listened to him, for he saw how severely the king of Aram was oppressing Israel. 5 The Lord provided a deliverer for Israel, and they escaped from the power of Aram. So the Israelites lived in their own homes as they had before. 6 But they did not turn away from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, which he had caused Israel to commit; they continued in them. Also, the Asherah pole[a] remained standing in Samaria. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Devotional thought: God allowed them time to repent. Time they could stay in their home with out oppression but they had no protection during that time except in God. They in time would face God judgment because they wound not repent. a lesson for all in this true story.

A great source of help and comfort from God's word in bad time sand good.
(Matthew 11:28-30 and Isaiah 40:28-31)
Matthew 11
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. K.J.V. in Public domain

Isaiah 40:Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. K.J.V. in Public domain

June 12 lesson:
Devotional thought: Why am I here? God loves me and wants a relationship with His creation. me. Why was I born? To live for and serve Him. What is this life all about? God's Holy Bible is about God plan to save mankind from a bad choice. The choice to rebel against the Creator in disobedience, by our first parents. Yes, they who were with out sin and a sin nature sinned by disobeying God and the world changed. A perfect utopia became a sin sick world were every evil happened.

God's plan:
John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. K.J.V. in Public domain

Those who except this gift of eternal life are here for a purpose. To tell them of JESUS and His love and plan for them. On a mission: John 14:1-6; Rev. 21-22 www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search
=%
20John%2014:1-6;%20Rev.%2021-22&versR>ion=KJV


Matthew 18: 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Romans 8:34 :Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. K.J.V. in Public domain

Psalms 33: 18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. 21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. 22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee. K.J.V. in Public domain

Devotional thought: He is our hope, help, Savior, Lord and coming King. We can trust Him and praise Him. Let us rejoice.

Isaiah 25:9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation. K.J.V. in Public domain

Fear not: Trust the Lord. Remember His timing may not be our timing. God is stronger, and well able to help.

Devotional thought: Who or what is our first love?

Revelations 2:3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.K.J.V. in Public domain

Reprinted from my post in January due to not having must time today. After Vacation I must get caught up around here. God bless you each one. HUGS!

Devotional thought: When a nation forgets God or reject God and His Word and ways what should the people do?

Matthew 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Romans 11:23 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! K.J.V. in Public Domain

Revelations 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. K.J.V. in Public domain

HOPE and HELP:
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray , and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.K.J.V. in Public domain

Hello! I Was able to stay a few day with daughter & family. Wonderful time with all the family! We had a great holiday & cerebration. No computer there so no Spark. Hubby & I put in some more garden as well. When we got home I was so delighted at the birds. My Hubby and I feel it is a kind of birds sanctuary. We have been many places but few have the wonder of so many beautiful birds year round. We are indeed blessed. God is so good. Hope all had a great holiday. I did not stay on my diet as well as I should have but each day is a new beginning.

Colossians 3:14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

The out of doors was wonderful day! Birds singing! We saw so many wonderful birds. When it snowed I felt I had lost some of my spring flowers but to my joy and delight they have bounced back and are almost as lovely as they were before the snow. I thank the Lord for the wonderful day, the birds, the beautiful flowers, the Bible, family, home, friends, and spark. It is a good day!

Psalms 92:1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High: 2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night, K.J.V. in Public domain

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? K.J.V. in Public Domain

We had about four inches of snow but some other places not to far away had more. The show is now history and we are eager for Spring and the out of doors. Saturday we could not do much out of doors so Hubby and I had a date day and took a small vacation. We were blessed with a Lovely time. Church service were great Sunday and well looks like revival in the air. HUGS! God is so good! We are blessed.

Hebrews 12:1-2 Summed up a lot of the Sermon.
Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

When I have had those big live changing event the following Bible passage have been of great help!

Love!

Charity = LOVE!
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. K.J.V. in Public domain

Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Let us Keep shining for Him by His love, Holy power, and pure light.

Isaiah 9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
3 Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. K.J.V. in Public domain

2 Corinthians 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. K.J.V. in Public domain

Psalms 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. K.J.V. in Public domain

May the Lord work on us as clay and help us to be light and salt to a world in need of Him. HUGS!

Praying the Psalms
Psalms 139:23-24
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Cain was a good farmer. He was proud of his labor in the field and brought his fruit to the alter. Yet! It was rejected. Able brought from the flock, lambs. God received Abel's offering but rejected Cain's. They had no ideal of the whole of the obedience to bring a lamb. Yet! The lamb was a picture of Jesus and the cross he would have to bear to take away our sins. Cain's vegetable may have been well intended offering but not a picture of Salvation. Not want God required. I have found in my own walk with the Lord, in times past I felt I was doing good only to be chastened from the Lord. I have learned He is God. He knows best. His Word is true. I do not want to go the way of Cain. If God reject my offering i will sit at His feet, I will seek His will, I will read His Word and seek truth. My prayer is to do His Will His Way in all things. I still fall short but I know He loves and guides me to His will and way daily. He is my Potter and i His clay. The question is our faith walk a religion or a relationship. No one loves us more than Jesus. Matthew 11:28-31 He calls us to Himself. I pray for Him to search my heart and will that I will please Him. Psalms 139:23-24. God is Holy pure love and let us walk in love bearing the fruit by grace of His Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23. www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search

Praying for those hurt in Boston.
Praying for the nation and Boston.
May the Lord bring to light all the enemies plans and actions even before they can do them. May He reveal the ones responsible for this evil. Let us Remember the story in 2 Kings 6. God can handle this and all our problems. I trust Him. Proverbs 3:5-6

2 Kings 6:Then the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying, In such and such a place shall be my camp.
9 And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying, Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Syrians are come down.
10 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself there, not once nor twice.
11 Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not shew me which of us is for the king of Israel?
12 And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber.
13 And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan.
14 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.
14 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.
15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
18 And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the Lord, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.
19 And Elisha said unto them, This is not the way, neither is this the city: follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom ye seek. But he led them to Samaria.
20 And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said, Lord, open the eyes of these men, that they may see. And the Lord opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Samaria. K.J.V. in Public domain

Genesis 18:14a Is any thing too hard for the Lord?

Philippians 4: 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. K.J.V. in Public domain

Psalms 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. K.J.V. in Public domain

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. K/J/V. in Public Domain

Overview of God's plan to safe us from sin and eternal death.
John 3:15 hat whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. K.J.V. in Public domain

John 14:1-6
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.K.J.V. in Public domain

Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: K.J.V. in Public Domain

Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

John 1:1-5
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 3:15-21
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. K.J.V. in Public domain

1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: K.J.V. in Public Domain

Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Rev. 2: 3And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

What does God mean by First Love? Answer is found in Mark 12:30-31

Mark 12:30-31
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Devotional thought: We live in A world in need of help; yes it needs what its Creator has already given. His Word and directions.

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

Question to ponder! What if we all lived the golden rule? What kind of world would we live in today? What would we see more of? What would we see less of? ???
Answer: Simple it is to treat others as you wish to be treated. We would see No wars! No greed! No stealing! No lie! No killing! No hate! Yes A world that lived according to Matthew 5-8 and the Sermon on the Mount. www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search

On Good Friday, Jesus won the victory over death, sin, & hell for all who chose Him! John 3:15-21 niv.scripturetext.com/john/3-15.htm

Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. K.J.V. in Public Domain (Note: A lamb was found in such a place but kings were in castles. Jesus who is God was placed in a manger. A lamb was used as a sacrifice in the Old Testament time. John Tells us to see the Lamb.

John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Devotional thought: Good Friday was a hard day for our Lord, Creator, and Savior King. He faced it with obedience, love for you and me. The Lamb of God who came to save us from our sins, did His job well and suffered and died so we could live with Him for ever in paradise. He did more than we can ever thank Him for. He is worth of all worship, praise and awe. Let us fall down at Him feet and worship and obey His voice and Word as He directs our path.

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Digging deep into God Word. To build your faith and draw you close to Jesus Read how God directs us to live our lives:Philippians 4; Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 13; Psalms 37; Proverbs 3:1-6; and remember the Great promise Jesus gave His disciples in John 14:1-6

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. K.J.V. in Public domain

Jesus is God with us: Immanuel: Colossians 1:15-16; Hebrews1; John 1:1-5; and many other scriptures tell us this fact. Have blessed good Friday and A Happy Easter as we sit at Jesus feet and get up to serve Him. We have a wonderful future who have make Him LORD oven our lives. Rev. 21-22

Below find Bible passage I myself use in the hard times that bring comfort and builds my faith and draws me closer to my Lord, Master, Savior and King Jesus. No one loves us more than JESUS!

Matthew 11: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Isaiah 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Devotional thought: We all have let down and valleys in our journey. It is good to know someone bigger than ourselves is in control.

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. K.J.V. in Public domain

1 Samuel 17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, ..K.J.V. in Public domain

The giant was big and powerful but no match for the Lord God of Heaven. Little David had God of all power on His side. So do we when we are His. Awesome! www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search

%20Samuel%2017:24-50&version=ASV


Isaiah 53 Written 600 years before Jesus came to earth to die for our sins and before any country crucified it citizens or enemies. God know us and our problems. Matter a fact he now take our problems as HIS. WOW! It is going to be all right. www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search

No better devotion could be said about this topic than this quote by President Lincoln. : “It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness... Abraham Lincoln, 1863 Proclamation of the National fast

Scripture help to share scripture with those who need it most.

What is Faith?
Hebrews 12:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. K.J.V. in Public domain

My Hope and help in times like this we live in today!!
Psalms 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. K.J.V. in Public domain

Peace in the Eternal life promise to those that believe.
John 3:15-21
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. K.J.V. in public domain

Jesus shows the way:
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. K.j.V. in Public Domain

Our choice:
Revelations 21:And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. K.J.V. in Public domain

NO one loves you more than JESUS!
Hell was made for the devil and the fallen angels not for you and me. They had seen Gods Creation and God in all His glory but chose to sin.

The gift of eternal life is for all mankind who will come to Him and choose Jesus on His terms and live forever in paradise.

Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. K.J.V. in Public domain

Psalms 18:1 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. K.J.V. in Public domain

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. K.J.V. in Public domain

Devotional thought: You have head of a children having a periods of time to themselves for saying things they should not have said; YES! "A Time out" time to think of what they have done. The child just had a wrong attitude and a few wrong words spoken and those words blaming others for their own sins. No big deal if the child learns, repents, and submits to parents but what about adults. The Gods children of Israel wondered 40 years in the desert and were not allowed to enter the promise land. Why? I am thinking about what they did wrong. Three root reasons! 1-Lack of faith. 2 Complaining, and murmuring. 3 blaming others for their own sins. WOW!! Price of sin is high.


Isaiah 6:5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. K.J.V. in Public domain

1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. K.J.V. in Public Domain

My Prayer:
Heavenly Father, 14 1:1 Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee. 2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. 3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. K.J.V. in Public domain

Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. K.J.V. in Public domain

Devotional thought: Love is key as we walk in the Spirit. The Fruit in our lives is seen in how we treat the Lord, family, church, and others.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. ...25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. K.J.V. in Public Domain
