When Someone Steals From You

There’s more than one easy answer!

Jesus says: “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” in Matthew 7:12

“Then Peter came to Him and said, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?’   Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.’ ” Matthew 18:21-22

“People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy himself when he is starving. Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold; he may have to give up all the substance of his house.”  Proverbs 6:30-31

Exodus 22:4, “If the theft is certainly found alive in his hand, whether it is an ox or donkey or sheep, he shall restore double.”

Judge Righteously

“Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

“She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.”     

Proverbs 31:9, 17 (KJV)

“And the children of Israel cried unto the Lord: for he had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel. And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.”       

Judges 4:3-4 (KJV)

“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” Jesus in John 7:24 (KJV)

 

Our Soul Has Escaped

Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers;
The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.”

Psalm 124:7-8

“If we’ll just learn to worship God even during the difficult circumstances, He will change them for the better very quickly if He so chooses.”

Oswald Chambers, December 18, My Utmost

“Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” Psalm 91:3 (KJV)

“Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.” Psalm 141:10 (KJV)

Since every person is redeemable through Jesus Christ, you can always attribute this prayer as to the wicked spirits of Satan. Praise God!

Let Jesus In

…the Pastor preached.

“Behold, I send My messenger, 

and He will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight.

Behold, He is coming, says the Lord of hosts.”

Malachi 3:1

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost, August 9th:

“Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost,” the “Bethlehem” of the Son of God.

(1 Corinthians 6:19)

Like the First Time I Ever Saw the Sunrise

Your beauty amazes me, Lord God. Looking at Your creation; everyday is new. Praise You, Lord Father!

“And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, like the tender grass springing out of the earth, by clear shining after rain.”                               King David in 2 Samuel 23:4

You Are A Flower

“The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come…” Song 2:12

Old prophecy I received that I am a flower in God’s garden, swaying and smiling in the sun.

I proclaim you’re each special, made for a purpose and God can’t do without you.  Some may look similar, but each unique. Let Him who sees the heart attract and beautify you.

“Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.” Psalm 119:73 (NIV)

It’s All About Jesus

I stated to someone, and continue to pray that they know Him. Jesus tore the veil, made us one with the Father.

“Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”              John 4:10

“Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split…”                               Matthew 27:51

“Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, ‘Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.”  Revelation 12:10

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” Colossians 2:9-10

“Christ in you” Colossians 1:27

Do You Like Yourself?

Thanks to Min An / Pexels for the photo!

“You are the temple of the Holy Spirit” 1 Corinthians 6:19

Do you treat yourself well? Would you speak with a friend similarly? Are you your own worst enemy?

My friend advises:

  • Be kind to yourself
  • Give yourself a big hug…from Jesus
  • Don’t listen to those peripheral people who are jealous. God created you for several reasons.

Another woman testifies:

  • I like myself straight, being able to make someone laugh, to encourage someone…without the drugs.

“With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.”   James 3:9

“Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’”  Genesis 1:26

Power Pack – Holy Spirit

People talk about spirits, but do we know the Holy One?

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” explains Jesus in John 16:13 (NKJV)

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” Paul preaches in Romans 8:2

“The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,  the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” Isaiah 11:2

“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Romans 8:11

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Jesus says in John 14:26

“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4:30 (NIV)
