Confession

You ever read something and when you read it the 2nd,3rd or 4th time, you get an understanding that you did not have before? For our scripture focus today, I got a better understanding.

Confession is good for you. Really? Yup!  What is even more amazing to me, I found it in the Bible.

Psalm 32:3-5 New Living Translation (NLT)

When I refused to confess my sin,
    my body wasted away,
    and I groaned all day long.
Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me.
    My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Interlude

Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
    and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”
    And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. 

 

So, we see that when you confess what ever the issue is, the guilt is gone.  Remember when you were little and you did something wrong and you felt bad. Especially when you did something to a friend. It was not until you said sorry, that you felt better and the guilt was gone. There is something about speaking truth that is freeing to the soul.

Be Blessed!

Faith- Does it Move God?

Luke 18:35-42 (KJV)

35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:

36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. 38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. 39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. 40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, 41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. 42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

The Faith of the blind man moved Jesus in such a way, that Jesus stopped an asked “What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?  It did not matter that the man was in the crowd and people told him to be quiet.  No!  He yelled louder, Son of David, have mercy on me!!   His Faith, stopped God!  His Faith moved Heaven!  He received his sight!

Does your Faith move God?

Be Blessed!

Balance

 

A routine is not always easy to get used to. It is trying, as it goes against everything you have been doing. It also throws you off-balance.

Balance here is key. One must be able to balance the things required and still follow the new process.

Proverbs 16:11 (The Jewish Study Bible) The balance and scales of justice have their own origin in Adonai; all the weights in the bag are His doing.

Know that Adonai (God) is the originator of being in balance and He is with you. Do not give up, keep pressing forward.

Be Blessed!

Praises To My God  

The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness.
In your strength I can crush an army.
With my God I can scale any wall.

God’s way is perfect.
All the Lord’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
For who is God except the Lord?
Who but our God is a solid rock?
God arms me with strength,
And He makes my way perfect.
He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
Enabling me to stand on mountain heights.
He trains my hands for battle.
He strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.
You have given me your shield of victory.
Your right hand supports me.
Your help
has made me great.
You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping.

He is the God who pays back those who harm me.
He subdues the nations under me 

And rescues me from my enemies.

You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies

You save me from violent opponents.

The Lord lives! Praise to my Rock!

Thoughts

II Corinthians 10:5 KJV Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

A thought is defind as th action or process of thinking. In our text we see that we are to bring our thoughts inline with God. So, if you are driving along and you start thinking about how you should tell Susie off because she did not laugh at your story, you need to stop the movie going on in your head. One must realize that everyone may not think your story is funny.

You also take a thought by saying it. You smell freshly baked cookies and you think to yourself, I will get some cookies. Then you say, I am going to get some cookies, you have just took your thought and turned it into a spoken word.

Let us grasp ahold of the thoughts that will edify and speak God’s Word.

Blessings

Happiness

Happiness is circumstantial. Joy comes from the Lord.  Today I am so thankful for growth and just plain old life. Life brings us all through trails that makes us stronger. This day I say I thankyou Lord and smile.

Happy Wednesday

We have made it to mid-week. Summer is approaching and you know what we tend to do. We get that quick diet plan to lose pounds before the summer hits.

Instead of the quick fix diet, how about a life style change in eating? We eat to live. Food is one of the vital things we need to survive.

Now, in all this exercising what about our mind? Having peace of mind and in the soul is important. There is one who can give you and I peace in the midst of every situation. His name is Christ Jesus.

John 14:25-28 King James Version
These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. [26] But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. [27] Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

In these times, we all need peace.

Be Blessed!
