“The Sweetest, I Know!”

the sweetest I know - my pic

Sweeter than the ripest fruit. Sweeter than the
honey from the most abundant honeycomb is
the love of our God. No wonder David penned
these words, “Oh taste and see that the Lord is
good” for unless you have partaken of this
goodness, you haven’t experienced the Divine
in all of His glory in your life.

Take Him unto yourself. Savor the blessedness
of the Savior in your life. Take all of Him and let
Him fill you with the sweet wonder of His unfailing
love. Let Him satisfy the hunger of your soul as
only He can.

I promise you, once you really taste Him in your
life, You will not want to let Him go or lose His
flavor. For the sweetness that comes from being
united in Him in holy fellowship, there is no
compare.

“I Am With You!”

I am with you - my pic

There are days when the mission will be rough.
There will be days when it seems no matter which
way you turn, you face adversity. But God still
says to go. He still calls you to step out into faith
and follow His leading. He still says, “Be not
afraid of their faces…” (Jeremiah 1:8).

God urges you on; His desire is for you to go
where He calls because when you go, you do
not go alone. “For I am with thee…” He says.
Those blessed words God has repeatedly
promised in His Word. Today, wherever you are
called, and wherever your feet may travel,
trust in the One who says, “I will never leave
thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5).

“And they shall fight against thee; but they shall
not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith
the LORD, to deliver thee.” Jeremiah 1:19

“Praying for the today’s that we face”

praying for the today's we face - unsplash pic

Father God, we know there’s a coming day when every tear that falls from our eyes shall be wiped away, a day when the trying circumstances we face here shall all be over, and we are looking forward to that day and rejoicing in the promise for it. We, also, are praying for the today’s that we face. We are praying for healing in the many circumstances of life: health, finances, relationships, souls restored, national conflicts to experience peace in You and through You. We are praying for people to be released and made whole from anything that comes against Your best for their life. In Jesus’ mighty name, we pray, AMEN!

Within

Within - pagemodo pic

Within, that’s where she
matters the most.
It’s not the hair
with a stylish boast.

It’s not the brows
arched to shape.
It’s not the makeup
upon her face.

She is who she is,
the woman within.
The woman found there
is where true beauty begins.

There in the places,
hidden from the sight of man,
there within, she is fitted
for God’s plan.

In the crevice of her being
there is a light that shines there
that has nothing to do
with outward beauty or hair.

Within, she is valued.
Within, she is gold.
Within, she holds treasures
of stories untold.

She is fashioned with purpose.
She is made with love.
She is uniquely created
by the Father above.

Not to be an image
of anyone else.
God designed her perfectly
to bring joy to Himself.

He knows her person
from the inside out.
The person within
is what her story’s about.

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!” Psalm 139:13-17

“Our God is in the Heavens!”

our God is in the heavens - pagemodo pic

There is futility found in the heart of a person who seeks help and solace in any other place than our true God, who resides in the heavens (Psalm 115:3).  

God is present for all if all would tear their eyes away from the worthless and look to He who is worthy.

Stop running after the idols of silver and gold. Stop seeking the works of man’s hands (Psalm 115:4) and their ideologies, and start seeking the Creator who sits high above it all. Seek Him who is “high above the nations, and his glory above the heavens” (Psalm 113:4), for our true God – the true God is there in the heavens.

The earth can only offer you earthly things and earthly solutions. Things of this natural world that capture the imagination are just that – imaginary help.  

But, our God is in the heavens, and He is real, and His help is real:

“Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.

But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord.” (Psalm 115:11-18)

If real help is what you are seeking for your life, turn your attention away from the false advertisements of this world, then turn your face, your heart, and your soul toward the true God who is in the heavens. There, you will find help for all you need in this life and the life to come.

“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:9-13)

“I will remember My covenant!”

There once was a time in our history where God, due to His righteousness in comparison to the sinfulness of mankind, had to take actions to cleanse what had become polluted. We know the familiar story of Noah and the flood, when only eight people out of all the people who lived on the earth at that time, were saved (Genesis 6-9).

In chapter eight, after the events of the flood took place and Noah built an altar to worship God (Genesis 8:20-22), God determined in His heart that He would not curse the ground in such a way ever again to destroy everything and that while the earth remained so would seedtime and harvest.

God, in chapter nine, relayed this promise to Noah and his sons, saying, “And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh” (Genesis 9:14-15).

In the future, they had this promise to cling to because some days there would be gray skies and fearsome weather. Some days storms will blow and cause the world to look like it was being torn apart, but God said to them they had no reason to fear these times because “I will remember my covenant.”

How much comfort must those words have brought in turbulent times? How much peace must they have felt by holding on to God’s Words of His faithfulness to keep what He has spoken?

Remember the time of the Exodus? When God commanded the lamb to be slaughtered and blood to be placed on the doorpost to cover His people (Exodus 12). God spoke, “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt” (Exodus 12:13). God had a promise that would keep His people and bless them from being destroyed.  As His covenant people, God was going to protect them!

Words such as these are pivotal to our Christian faith. They stand as reminders that, we too, are covenant people and God always keeps His covenant.

On the night of His arrest, the last Passover celebration Jesus would celebrate here on earth with His disciples, also to become known as the Lord’s Supper, Jesus spoke these words, “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26:28). Through His sacrifice, they who by faith accept the Lord Jesus Christ, are found in a covenant relationship with God: “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises” (Hebrews 8:6).  

In Christ, you are secured in His holy covenant. In Christ, you have a blessed and better promise to hold on to:

“But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance” (Hebrews 9:11-15)

Regardless of the gray skies in your life and the storms that blow or even the floods that rise, God is never far from His people. The Bible reminds us of this wonderful truth, saying, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5). The blood of Christ has placed us in the safest place we could be, in a pure covenant with God, and God always remembers His covenants and those who are part of it.

“I will remember my covenant”, though spoken to Noah, are words of promise that we can hold on to as children of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord, today, and forevermore.
