The Peace of the Lord

Isaiah 26:3-4 (KJV)

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:

God will keep us in perfect peace when the storms of life are raging.  Can the Lord trust you with trouble?   Will you keep your mind on the Lord?  Will you study the Word of the Lord?  Trust the Lord to give you peace and strength to stay in the race.  Remember the Lord Jehovah is everlasting Strength.

It’s Time To Be Persuaded

Romans 8:34-39 (KJV)

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.

 

Life may seem overwhelming at the present time, but remember the the Word of God.  For I am persuaded that nothing shall separate us from the love of God.  Don’t let the enemy distract you with his lies, that you are losing the battles.  The Word of God tells us we are more than conquerors through him that loved us, we need to believe the Word of God!

 

Don’t Judge Me!

1 Samuel 16:6-7 (KJV)

And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord‘s anointed is before him.

But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

Many time we are judged by our appearance, socioeconomic, job status, community status, and even what church we attend.  The Lord is saying to us today, I’m not looking at your past mistakes, failures, mishaps, or disappointments.  I’m looking at your heart.  What is your heart saying???   You can’t get wrapped up in how people judge your outward appearance.  You make sure you know whats going on in your heart.  At such time like this, we do not want the Lord to refuse us.  Live a life that is pleasing unto the Lord.

Psalm 26:2(NIV)

Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;

 

My Hiding Place

Psalm 119:114 (KJV)

114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

 

I remember playing a game called hide and seek.  Where you had to hid from the person that was counting and when they were finished, ready or not here they come.  Well, that was in the natural.  Let’s look at it from a spiritual perspective.  Jesus Christ is responsible for us.  So that makes him qualified to be our hiding place and our shield.  He will covers us when the storms of life are raging.  We are protected under His loving care.  Make sure you study your Word, because in The Word is hope and everlasting life.

Prayer:

Lord, help me grab all that You want me to.

What’s on Your Record?

Romans 14:11 (KJV)

11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Revelation 20:12 (KJV)

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Since day one someone have been keeping a record on us.  Records such as birth record, immunization record, school record, baptism record, and a death record.  What will be on your record when the books are opened before God.  Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess to God, the deeds done in this mortal body.  What will be your confession:

  • I believed in Jesus Christ
  • I feed the hungry
  • I gave to the poor
  • I was baptist
  • I am Saved

Those will be statements that someone will say….will it be you?  It’s time to rethink your plan of salvation the time is now, Jesus Christ is soon to return.  It will be a sad day if Jesus Christ say depart from me I knew you not.

Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV)

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Being An Example

Daily Devotion Reflection:

And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. (NLT) -Titus 2:7 It’s easier to tell someone what to do than it is to lead by example.  Modeling our beliefs is much more impactful and makes the value ingrained deeper in all who see our example.  Telling others what and how to react takes the choice away from them.  God will speak to them and show them the error of their ways through your behavior alone.  Set the example and let all you do be a reflection of Him.
