The Escape is Up

There may be no way out, but up.

“The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.” Psalm 25:14-15 (NKJV).

“Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, ‘Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.'” John 11:41.

“I will lift up my eyes to the hills-from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2.

Face to Face

“She said to Him, ‘Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” Martha to Jesus in John 11:27 (NKJV).

“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:12.

“For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me… When You said, ‘Seek My face,’ my heart said to You, ‘Your face, Lord, I will seek.'” King David to Father God in Psalm 27:5,8

Our Sunday sermon touched on Jesus meeting with Martha and Mary and raising Lazarus from the grave. What moments of interaction with the Lord Jesus Christ! Many of us wonder would we know Jesus as Lord and Master if we were alive back then? But the whole thing now is to believe in our hearts totally without having seen Him.

Power to Overcome

1 John 5:5, “Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”

1 John 5:4, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.”

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer I have overcome the world,” says Jesus in John 16:33 (KJV).

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13.

Your Soul

  • “His soul shall dwell at ease.” Psalm 25:13 (NKJV).
  • “You give shameful counsel to your house, cutting off many peoples, and sin against your soul.” Habakkuk 2:10.
  • “For the Lord will plead their cause, and plunder the soul of those who plunder them.” Proverbs 22:23.
  • “He restores my soul.” Psalm 23:3
  • “He satisfies the hungry soul.” Psalm 107:9
  • If you say, ‘surely we did not know this,’ does not He Who weighs the hearts consider it? He Who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?” Proverbs 24:12.
  • “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

Father God, I pray for all who have a troubled soul, to look to You for peace, wholeness, and restoration in Jesus’s mighty name, Amen!

 

Satisfied From Above

“The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, but a good man will be satisfied from above.” Proverbs 14:14 (NKJV).

“But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of man.” said Jesus in Matthew 16:23.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with Whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:17.

Dear Lord, how many times are we caught up with worldly thoughts and temptations, only to return to You, Father of lights.  Guide us today and everyday in Your truth.  Hallelujia.

Can’t Touch This

God revealed to me that no one can get at your inside where Jesus lives.  Later that day I found this mug at the dollar store; God is awesome!

You are sealed with the Holy Spirit till the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30)

The Oswald Chambers from June 2nd says: If we’re haunted by God, nothing else can get in, no cares, no tribulation, no anxieties…an effective barricade against all the onslaughts of the enemy.  “His soul shall dwell at ease.”  Psalm 25:13.

Pregnancy Test?

As a positive pregnancy test, we discovered this keyboard piece in the parking lot where we pray.  You’re pregnant with a promise from God & He won’t fail you, He keeps His promises.

“Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you.” Isaiah 49:15 (NKJV).

“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.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23.

Leads To Life

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.

“Because narrow is the gate and Difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Jesus teaches in Matthew 7:13-14 (NKJV).

“In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.” Proverbs 12:28.

Don’t give up when Life is tough, rather, expect toughness. Victoria Osteen said on TBN when she starts to get down, she changes her thinking; I pop in a Worship CD.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, (producing patience)” James 1:1. It definitely helps to have a sense of humor and a friend.

 

 

Because Of Your Prayers

Jesus in Luke 7:22, “Jesus answered and said to them, Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them.”

“Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.” Revelation 5:8.

“For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.

“When Jesus heard it He marveled, and said to those who followed, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” Matthew 8:9-10

Keep on praying!  It’s a lifeline to our Lord and King!

Dear King Jesus, thank You for being our Friend and Intercessor, thank You for Your love, I trust in Your word, Lord.

 

You Have A Voice

“He who speaks truth declares righteousness, but a false witness, deceit.” Proverbs 12:17 (NKJV)

“There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword, but the tongue of the wise promotes health.” Proverbs 12:18

“Therefore, putting away lying, ‘Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,’ for we are members of one another.” Ephesians 4:25

Sharing this prophecy with you that I received because we all have a voice on our blogs.  God bless you.

Father God, when You tell us we have a voice, it’s when You are put first and declare Your righteousness.  May You be exalted in our lives.
