Remember That?

Acts 11:16 (NIV), BibleGateway

Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’”

Do you remember what you were thinking when you decided to move to a new city? The hopes you had when you bought that house? Your plans for retirement?

God’s able to make your dreams come true.

My sister and I used to laugh at the Chris Farley skit on Saturday Night Live, when he’d constantly ask, “Do you remember that?”

 

 

 

“He is Kind to the Unthankful & Evil”

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.”

Luke 6:35

God, You are sovereign, You are good, Your ways are higher, Your thoughts are higher. we exalt You, King of our hearts.

“He sends rain on the just and the unjust.”    Matthew 5:45

“So the demons begged Him, saying, ‘If You cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine.’ And He said to them, ‘Go.'”

Matthew 8:30

Fill Heaven and Earth

“‘Do I not fill heaven and earth?’ says the Lord.”

Jeremiah 23:24

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”  Psalm 19:1

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” Psalm  24:1

Yes, Father, You fill it and created us and everything.  We’re Your masterpieces, You’re still building us up in faith.  You’re the original artist, every artist and sculptor copies from You, our God and King.

God of Peace and Order

“Prince of Peace”

Isaiah 9:6

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

John 14:27

“Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end,…

“To order it and establish it with judgment and justice…”

Isaiah 9:7

This started an argument once, where my friend insisted she had these two attributes.  And it brought peace to a distraught friend who lost his address book in the sewerage mud on a mission trip.

 

Egg Miracle

Pulling out all the stops on our belief in You, Jesus!

“I am with you always”  Matthew 28:20

“Do you believe Me now?”  John 16:31

None of the eggs were broken!  5 Eggs were missing from the opened carton inside the supermarket bag after coming home from the store.  Delicately rooting towards the bottom, the first 2 were shiny wet, supposing from the ones that broke.

How were they all safe, as if hard-boiled?
