Do Your Part

For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.               

1 Corinthians 13:9-10

Be part of God’s plan.

“Bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.

“But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the LORD. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the LORD JESUS, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

Colossians 3:13-17

 

 

That’s Not Food

 “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:2, 5 (KJV)

Many of us read labels these days amidst the controversy over what’s healthy to eat. My son once said, ‘I’m not feeding my kid food that’s made in a lab.”

Do you wonder why these are still being added? high glucose corn syrup, sodium phosphate, aspartame, food dye, etc. We’re all in a hurry sometimes, do you at least try to limit the bad stuff to 5%?

Todd White Notes

“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” Hebrews 13:16 (NIV)

Here are some notes from an explosive Todd White conference, Hallelujah!  Praise God.

God’s love produces faith

We need to go after Him with everything we are

Start fresh everytime you pray, not based on last results

Can’t embarrass a humble person

Kingdom thinking

1 John 3:8

Bring heaven everywhere you go

John 3:16

All of you is covered with all of Me

Fight for stuff – it’s a war

Acts 2:38

You’re empowered with Holy Ghost

 

All The Lonely People

You’re My friends, if you do whatever I command you (John 15:14)

I think I met the loneliest person in the world: in need of deliverance, 10 years wandering, friendless, if he/she would only surrender to the One Friend, Jesus. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and go see a psychiatrist, also.

“He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will—” Ephesians 1:5 (NIV)

“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” Acts 2:42

We took sweet counsel together, and walked to the house of God in the throng.” Psalm 55:14

Unicorns, Dragons & Sea Monsters

“Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?” Job 39:9 (KJV)

So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.” Psalm 104:25-26 (KJV)

“Even the sea monsters draw out the breast, they give suck to their young ones: the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.” Lamentations 4:3 (KJV)

Job 41:

“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?” verse 1 (KJV)

“Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.  20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.  21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.  22 In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.” verses 19-22

Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.” vs 29

Using the King James version, with these verses.  There’s no comparison on other versions. The banned Book is true.

Master Jesus

“And Moses called all Israel, and said to them: “Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your hearing today, that you may learn them and be careful to observe them.”                                                  Deuteronomy 5:1

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”                           

Jesus in Matthew 11:29

“You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am.

“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you and example, that you should do as I have done to you.”                                                                                John 13:13-15

God Is Speaking

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.”   

Isaiah 30:21

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  Jesus in John 10:27

“She is yours to love.  Take her.” God told Joshua Zhong about adopting a Chinese girl, in Linda Droeger’s Bound by Love.

 

Writing

My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”

Psalm 45:1

“‘Writing,’ he patiently tried to persuade his doubtful daughter, ‘is man’s highest calling. Words are the emotional food that feed the hungry heart and the soul.'” Page 44 in Linda Droeger’s Bound By Love.

Miracle Appointment

A friend walked up to me, “Are you going to call?” She said before she left the house, “the Lord told me to agree with you in prayer.” Because she obeyed God, I received the answer I was praying for.  Thank You, Jesus!

Corrie ten Boom says, “love and obedience” in Not I, But Christ.

“But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.” 1 Samuel 15:22 (NIV)

Jesus in John 21:17, “Do you love Me?”

Glory in This

“Don’t let the wise brag of their wisdom.
    Don’t let heroes brag of their exploits.
Don’t let the rich brag of their riches.
    If you brag, brag of this and this only:
That you understand and know Me.
    I’m God, and I act in loyal love.
I do what’s right and set things right and fair,
    and delight in those who do the same things.
These are my trademarks.”
    God’s Decree.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 The Message

(Bible Gateway)

Part of this was quoted at church the other week!

“Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”  Isaiah 55:5

“In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.” Psalm 62:7
