All Creation Praises You

“Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!” And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, ‘Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.”

“But He answered and said to them, ‘I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”

Luke 19:38-40

“How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts!

My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”                 Psalm 84:1-2

“Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.

“Bless the LORD, all His works, in all places of His dominion.

“Bless the LORD, O my soul!”

Psalm 103: 20, 22

“Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and all its fullness;

“Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.  Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the LORD.

“For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth.”

Psalm 96:11-13



God is Rising

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”

Lamentations 3:22-24


Fear is falling, addiction is falling, chains are falling, oppression is falling, in Jesus’ name

“Deliver us from evil”           Jesus in Matthew 6:13

Jesus, Why I Live

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:10-11

“This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.”  

Psalm 118:24

“A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also.” Jesus in John 14:19

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

2 Corinthians 5:17

Joy & Faith

“The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!”  David says in Psalm 21:1.

“Your gentleness had made me great,” Psalm 18:35.

Romans 5:1-2 (NLT), “Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.”

Romans 15:13 (NKJV), “ Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Jesus in John 15:11, “ These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.”

Loving Father, we’ve all heard many sermons on Faith & Joy being inseparable. The truth is all gifts of Your Holy Spirit are forever linked to You our Father – night and day.

The first thought I had yesterday was “Rejoice”.  It’s a command, as well as an encouragement.  Don’t look at circumstances, look above.  We can do all that’s humanly possible to help our case, but God is in control and He wants us to look to Him.  God will give you great favor.  Philippians 4: 4, says, “Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, rejoice.”

“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever; with my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.” (Ps 89:1)

God moved through a mountain of  issues in my life yesterday starting with an answer to a problem lasting all year!
