Praise

Something to think about

Praise

“Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!” Psalms 150:1-6 NKJV

There is peace in praise. There is nothing that anyone can do for God that will not result in being blessed. Even the most altruistic act on our behalf towards God will result in our receiving a blessing.  Not as a reward but out of His glory. Just to be in His presence will result in being blessed. The essence of the psalm is to show God love because he is worthy of it and do it in whatever fashion best exhibits your praise.

No Human Wisdom

Something to think about.

No Human Wisdom

“No human wisdom or understanding or plan can stand against the LORD.”
Proverbs 21:30 NLT

Believe in Him, deny Him, lie about Him rationalize or intellectualize Him away, there will never be anything in the mind of man that will stop or alter the plan of God.  He is in control He always has been and always will be. His will, will prevail and your permission understanding or contribution is not required nor will you be consulted.

Prevail

Something to think about.

Prevail

“They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the LORD, “to deliver you.””Jeremiah 1:19

This promise of God can not be fulfilled if you are outside the will of God. When you are in a battle whatever it may be, the first thing you need to ask yourself is, am I in the will of God? God will only be involved in the lives of those who invite Him in, He will not invade your domain. Only after you have invited Him in can He deliver you. If you're outside the will of God, He will definitely use you but not necessarily to deliver you. You have the right to fight the battles of your life alone with your limited resources and knowledge. But why would you, when you can have the creator of the universe on your side?

No Other

Something to think about.

No Other

““Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”
Isaiah 45:22 NIV

The message and the call are still the same God does not change.  He is still calling man to salvation. He is still God singular in His deity. His call is for all nations, tribes, and peoples. There is a satisfying peace, joy, and exuberance in knowing that God is unmovable; that He is the solid rock of our existence.

The Currency Of Heaven

Something to think about.

The Currency Of Heaven

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV
 
The underlying theme of these verses is currency, money, wealth anything of value. Notice that all the currency in verse 19 can be lost in one way or another. In verse 20 it is saying save a currency that will not be destroyed. When you consider that after the resurrection all will be made new, a new body a new earth, what currency can we possibly store in heaven? The answer is that which will exist forever, the soul of man. How many souls will be saved because of your efforts? Though we don't have any way of knowing the answer to that question we know that the more we use our lives to bring people to Christ the greater will be our currency in heaven. There is no other action or result God will honor in heaven, the currency of God is the soul of man.

Not A Word

Something to Think About

Not A Word

“Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.” Joshua 21:45 NKJV

God is faithful to fulfill His promises. We as Israel lose the path of God we wander away from His goodness. God never changes His path is still the same. He still is seeking those that would obey Him and share in His salvation and glory.

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