“Little Birdie in the Tree”

My Project 63-001

 

Little birdie in the tree

How often have you provoked jealousy

You seem so at ease with no cares or stress

To me your life looks free and so at rest

 

Is it because you have learned the secret

Where humans still strive

To live life as God created you

A life meant to trust and rise

 

 

We worry and fret over every little thing

When to the Lord we are commanded, our troubles to bring

He values us more than the bird in the tree

They don’t worry about what tomorrow will be

 

On the branch confidently they are perched

Be it a maple, an oak, or even a birch

They trust in Him to provide for the day

Are we not much better than they

 

“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?” (Matthew 6:26).

“Prayers Go Up and Blessings Come Down” – Yiddish Proverb

When we come before the throne of God we don’t walk away empty handed. We go away knowing the Sovereign of the universe has heard. We go away knowing He will bless according to His perfect plan and purpose.

“I AM FREE TO WORSHIP!”

 

free to worship

As we enter into His gates on this Sunday morning with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise, we are reminded of the cost that bought our freedom. We praise Him and worship Him! He delivered us, saved us, and brought us through. Shackles are loosed.  Chains are broken and, now we are FREE TO WORSHIP!
Worship is our honor and privilege.  Therefore, we:
“Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.  Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. FOR GREAT IS THE LORD, AND GREATLY TO BE PRAISED: he also is to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.  GLORY AND HONOUR ARE IN HIS PRESENCE; strength and gladness are in his place.  Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. GIVE UNTO THE LORD THE GLORY DUE UNTO HIS NAME: bring an offering, and come before him: WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS.  Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be no moved.  Let the heavens be glad, and the let the earth rejoice: and LET MEN SAY AMONG THE NATIONS, THE LORD REIGNETH.” (1 Chronicles 16:23-31).

“Jesus Blesses the Children” Sunday School Lesson, Luke 18:15-18; Mark 10:16, May 22, 2016

This week’s lesson:

A child doesn’t worry. A child only sees daddy. Daddy loves me, daddy cares for me, I trust daddy and daddy will never let me fall. Jesus is calling for all of us to turn to Him with that same childlike, trusting faith. Your heavenly Daddy loves you!

“THE FIRE HAS NO POWER!”

Flames may be fierce, but God is fiercer! The enemy will try to burn you up, but God can use those flames to promote you if you will just worship Him, believe and trust that He has you in the midst of it all, because when you are on God’s side:

“THE FIRE HAS NO POWER!”

My Project 97-001

My devotional reading this morning led me to Daniel 3.  In that, I read the very familiar story of the three Hebrew boys facing the fiery furnace.  Although very familiar, the story wouldn’t let me pass by without further thought.  Reading down to verse 27, there it was, those words that throw the power of God in the face of every enemy we face: “the fire had no power!”

Somebody needed to be reminded of this today.  I don’t know what flames are trying to ignite against you today, God can put it out; or, He can use it to get the glory.  Either way, one can never go wrong by trusting in Him.

He will cause the enemy to be astonished before you; amazed that you are still standing.  Just like the three Hebrews boys, He will not only cause you stand in the midst of the powerless flames…

Psalm 56 Prayer Poster

“No Weapon!”

“No weapon formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD,” Isaiah 54:17

Word For Life Says...

weapon-001

No weapon! It’s not hard to see,

Every one that’s formed propelled against me.

It’s vanished, thrown into the dust.

It won’t prosper, in the Lord I trust.

I am fortified in the Holy Ghost.

Your condemning tongues falsify your boast.

Darts aimed, ready to take flight.

Target unreached, by His might.

Shielded in the heritage, I belong to the Lord.

Bought with a price I could not afford.

Redeemed and covered, renewed to excel.

All arrows and swords, He did dispel.

“No weapon formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD,” Isaiah 54:17
