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.

Matthew 21:16

……….Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise…..

Colossians 1:16,17

Friday, April 4th, 2014

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: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Which of the flashbacks of the past are we experiencing today? Which skeleton has shown itself today? We all have something. There’s a problem everywhere there is a human being. But it’s shut up tightly-guarded, patched over most times in order to not reveal the true gravity of the situation. Moving ahead without looking at the prior view is a mountain to climb but it can be done. And the benefits are special.

James 3:14-18

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

There is one direction that goes forward-that which progresses and does not stand still or go backwards. There is one direction that goes up not down-that which reaches for higher thoughts and more steady existence. Arguing, picking up habits that leave one hollow, rigidity leaning toward controversies that disrespect independent thoughts which are the fabric of a life-all of this hurts. God is not wanting to be mad at people all the time but He draws people to His way of thinking. He has demands, yes, since He is the supreme ruler. But so does a loving parent draw their child with firmness as well as with love.

1 John 4:1

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

We are faced with choices today in life every hour, every moment. Being alone everyone is not really alone for there are forces beyond our full understanding which exist. The question is will we give in to our own weaknesses which can be negatively influenced by hurtful forces? Or will we let God’s spirit, which is pure and good, guide us, lead us through any maze? Be sure of which path to choose.

 

Hebrews 12:14,15

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.

Why murmur why complain? God is merciful having sent Jesus His only son to help us. Jesus is expertly qualified to rescue, to direct, to address our needs more than we ourselves can comprehend. Bitterness drags down and can hurt the complainer more than the one who is complained about.

While life passes by, the bitter state is at a standstill accomplishing less, sleeping less, marking time-yes marching in place-or in circular motion. Be free of all this, let Jesus renew the mind-and rejoice!

It’s easy, He’s waiting for you to receive Him. In your quiet time ponder the goodness of God. Waste time no more but get to the best destination. Shake off that dusty bitter cloak and walk right over to joy-allow Jesus to teach you. Thereby you can identify peace and a clean heart.

Philippians 3:14

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

When you serve Jesus with consistent devotion He will make you all you were meant to be and cause you to stand victorious (see ) over adversities as He takes you through them to the other side. And as you are purified by trials and tests you can reach your goals with Jesus by your side leading you higher and maturing you growing your faith as you surrender led by His wisdom. To be called by Him is a worthy honor. Work for Him and see results that are immeasurable. Even suffering is not forever; keep steady faith in Jesus looking to Him the conqueror and merciful.

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.

Commentary :

Jesus was sleeping peacefully in a boat while a storm swirled all around as His disciples panicked frantically worried.  Then He woke up and gently eased the situation.

Do we like the disciples frequently worry needlessly or have a whole range of unproductive feelings?  While allowing the mind to dwell on a variety of excuses, situations and plans which are not God’s will, a person can be drawn further and further away from the truth.  If instead our dwelling place remains secure in faith in God, then the end result of anything will be positive.

Storms of fear, anger, bitterness, despair, any sin can rage in the heart but don’t have to.

Let us remind ourselves of what God has to offer and compare the advantages He can give to the alternatives of being led down another path fueled by a self destructive force.  The chaotic force that tries to draw people away from truth will make lies appear right by using seemingly invisible blinders and shackles.  But if one looks hard enough and listens to God trying to reason with a person to get them to change () the bound condition is very evident.  Storms come and storms go, no problem is a static condition, but a person often allows one problem or misguided action to be replaced with another similar one.  However by contrast the peace of God is forever.
