2 Chronicles 14 ~ Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name


The House of David went back and forth in faith for millenniums. The House of David still exists today. Reunions occur. 



2 Chronicles 14

And Abijah rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David. Asa his son succeeded him as king, and in his days the country was at peace for ten years.

2 Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God. 3 He removed the foreign altars and the high places, smashed the sacred stones and cut down the Asherah poles. 4 He commanded Judah to seek the Lord, the God of their ancestors, and to obey his laws and commands. 5 He removed the high places and incense altars in every town in Judah, and the kingdom was at peace under him. 6 He built up the fortified cities of Judah, since the land was at peace. No one was at war with him during those years, for the Lord gave him rest.

7 “Let us build up these towns,” he said to Judah, “and put walls around them, with towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours, because we have sought the Lord our God; we sought him and he has given us rest on every side.” So they built and prospered.

8 Asa had an army of three hundred thousand men from Judah, equipped with large shields and with spears, and two hundred and eighty thousand from Benjamin, armed with small shields and with bows. All these were brave fighting men.

9 Zerah the Cushite marched out against them with an army of thousands upon thousands and three hundred chariots, and came as far as Mareshah. 10 Asa went out to meet him, and they took up battle positions in the Valley of Zephathah near Mareshah.

11 Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, “Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. Lord, you are our God; do not let mere mortals prevail against you.”

12 The Lord struck down the Cushites before Asa and Judah. The Cushites fled, 13 and Asa and his army pursued them as far as Gerar. Such a great number of Cushites fell that they could not recover; they were crushed before the Lord and his forces. The men of Judah carried off a large amount of plunder. 14 They destroyed all the villages around Gerar, for the terror of the Lord had fallen on them. They looted all these villages, since there was much plunder there. 15 They also attacked the camps of the herders and carried off droves of sheep and goats and camels. Then they returned to Jerusalem.



This is a core theme of the Bible. Trust God. Faith in God sustains.

Psalm 119:105-112 ~ I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back from living by your righteous order




Psalm 119:105-112     The Message

By your words I can see where I’m going;
they throw a beam of light on my dark path.
I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back
from living by your righteous order.
Everything’s falling apart on me, God;
put me together again with your Word.

Festoon me with your finest sayings, God;
teach me your holy rules.
My life is as close as my own hands,
but I don’t forget what you have revealed.

The wicked do their best to throw me off track,
but I don’t swerve an inch from your course.

I inherited your book on living; it’s mine forever—
what a gift! And how happy it makes me!
I concentrate on doing exactly what you say—
I always have and always will.


Psalm 63

63 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
3 Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
4 So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.



I rarely doubt and yet I have to say I worry.
Worry is fear. So fear and doubt go hand in hand.
That's threading cross hairs.
I don't doubt the promises of God,
I wonder how they apply. I wonder
about circumstances.


God, I firmly believe, is Vast as the Universe and is Love. I wonder about the learning of
the path. God sends us out to learn what kind of people we will become. How we present to Him
what we did with our talents. Like the prodigal son and Father. I believe God puts us in this life
like we send our children to college.
Father God running to us,
when we arrive finished with this life,
to the open
gates of Heaven.

Fear - this word appears in the Old Testament 437 times and in the New Testament 96 times. Could be something to Jesus believing.




Eye-yi- I 

Doubts usually are about the word "I".
I've been well off. And I've been poor. I've been befriended. I've been forsaken. I've been hurt. I've been apologized to. I've suffered the death of my dad twice. I've suffered the death of a baby. I've suffered seeing my family rail at God. I've seen weird comedians devalue all I love about God in insidious ways. I've been made fun of for things people think about God. I've had confidences betrayed. I've seen a family not really recover from my parent's divorce. I've see polite. I've seen really rude. I've seen avoidance, I've seen users. I've seen my friends suffer. I've seen friends recover when I haven't. I'm fifty.

I really don't like it when people refuse to do their very best and then are mad at God for His humor.

I've seen hurt with doubters who spread their poison and then blithely leave their worldly wisdom parked at my door and depart from the loved one they polluted. They left...why are we believing their values still.
I'm not happy with people who have all the answers and no love.

I'm annoyed with the current devaluation of Christianity as old hat.
When the knowledge is so sparse.
Where is the Seek? We are so accepting of what the TV and news run past us.







We are the generation that believes Halloween candy is usually scary.
And isn't.

Let's talk about Doubt. Where Doubt in the Bible says DISCERN.

I like the Drudge Report. The news is easy to see.
Ebola discovered in 1976 - is waning. Yep.

Doubt what you can of bad news!

Implanted micro devices? Did you immediately see that this is the mark of Revelation?
OH. Gosh!!! NO. Faith is going to have to be considerably more dead before our world wants that kind of mark. 86% of America is praying. And a little worried.

Picture Back to the Future Marty McFly is running around with his fit to order coat with the hand dangling. The coat is brrrrrroken.

We all can relate to the experience in our salad days. Now ask yourself again - are you going to put your phone in your arm - let it look like that mannequin and have that phone die? What if your finances are off that year... Can you see your arm clunking around you. "Hey, I tried texting you - well um - my phone is in my arm and my arm sorta looks dead." "Hey I tried calling you - right I need the $3,000 surgery to replace my phone."

Armies implanted with homing devices - we got that already - Satellite.
"My Forehead - why - well obviously we can never see anything detected on the fatty fat of your forehead."  Faith is going to have to be considerably more dead before our world wants that kind of mark.

It sells... so Doubt it.




OK. I admit I live with two sons, a husband, two dogs, a cat, and ducks. And I'm the only female.


But before you think I'm really, really sour. I'm only sometimes sour.



Look at what we missed in the news. An interesting idea. Jesus is still working. There is Good News.

God - Revelation reports - inhales our prayers.
Professor 3rd generation Eilat Mazar does not debunk the Bible. She has these Amazing Discoveries because she looks to the Bible to explain a God of Love.

So let's put our nose to the news and see - GOOD NEWS.
Encourage a few people.

Speaking of God inhaling our prayers - the BBC reports
Professor Geoffrey Raisman, whose team at University College London’s institute of neurology discovered the technique from a nose.

14 articles down Drudge... 3 articles down BBC...Fearbola is the title-ish of Huffington with waaaaay at the bottom Huffington Post coins the phrase fearbola having made waining Ebola the Cover Story.

According to Drudge, Daniel Nicholls was paralyzed in 2003 and he is a 38-year-old, who is believed to be the first person in the world to recover from complete severing of the spinal nerves, can now walk with a frame and has been able to resume an independent life, even to the extent of driving a car, while sensation has returned to his lower limbs.

How many people will need regeneration of nose cells? Millions. Millions are receiving Good News. There are Millions of paralyzed people. Not dead babies cell, the cells of the wounded. This is not even pointed out in the story. President Bush said no dead babies and we dismissed that Good News too. Scars are removed in this technique. Imagine that. God says shame is not from Him. Forgive others. Forgive ourselves.

Jesus Christ says in the Bible - He is for Wisdom.

I don't always read the news. So Dee and Lillian came to me to tell me Joe Namath is causing a stir because after 40 trips in a hyperbaric chamber - his brain which had previously shown black - now records recovery. 120 trips later - Joe is convinced and so is the FDA.
Good News does travel.


Way Down, Which led me to wonder about the BBC article - Vegetative patients show glimmers of consciousness. The electrical patterns and connections they recorded were then compared with healthy volunteers. The study reveals four of the 13 patients had an electrical signature that was very similar to those seen in the volunteers. Dr Chennu added: "This type of information might be helpful for families and the healthcare team looking after the patient.

"We have heard anecdotally that carers change their level of interaction with patients once they know there may be some hope of awareness."

Dr Tristan Bekinschtein and Dr Chennu - need to talk to Joe Namath.

Where is the WONDER? Look at Good News.

We need to file what we learn into - Good News. Amazing News. And Doubtful.

If we are so wise, why don't we see History is recorded for the situations at the time. See History with our famous compassion of this generation.
If we are so wise, why don't we know the Scriptures?
If we are so wise, why don't we honor the try and the hope and not the path-shutting-down elbows out
power?
If we are so wise and we complain about politics, do we vote?
Do you vote for people who promised you what they didn't deliver?
Do you vote for people who are ok with more war. Even Jesus said let the dead bury their dead.  We blithely go where Angels don't tread in.
If you want change in life - be - the change.

If you want more Heaven on Earth to please Father GOD, don't just be hearers of the Word, be active.
Edward has an illness, but in the last year he has been more deliberate and positive changes have occurred.


Put Your prayers out - God changes lives. Pray everything.
Put Your efforts out there - God approves actions for Him.
Put Your kindness out there - God approves Mercy.
Blessed are the Merciful - They will Receive Mercy.
If you want life to improve - improve life and ask His help.

Father GOD we dwell on Love. In the Love we have - Bless our Nation. 
Bless the Nations not at war.
Father God, in You, Beloved let us Love one another Love is from God - Bless our Families.
Father God, in Jesus, let us choose to pick up love, put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony - Bless our Friends.
Father God, in our Churches above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
Father God, in our daily effort and work - we love because He first loved us. Let us carry this love into our business and responsibilities to our companies, our workers and our products created.

Father God, Let us always remember what my niece Augusta learned - if you don't want to be surrounded with cussing - learn not to cuss.  We won't report sins of others, however we remember Your forgiveness. In Jesus. Amen.

Bible Study on Doubt ~ further explained and concluded







Luke 7:1-10

After he had finished all his sayings in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum. 

Now a centurion had a servant who was sick and at the point of death, who was highly valued by him. 3 When the centurion heard about Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his servant. 

4 And when they came to Jesus, they pleaded with him earnestly, saying, “He is worthy to have you do this for him, 5 for he loves our nation, and he is the one who built us our synagogue.” 

6 And Jesus went with them. 

When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. 7 Therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. 8 For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 9

When Jesus heard these things, 
he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.” 

10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the servant well.


Doubt.
God doesn't enjoy it.
Do I Doubt? Really not much at all. I spent 16 of the first years of my life doubting that I believed fervently in the unseen. It was a popular thought to toss around if this was knowable. I joined a Youth Group in High School and I saw the peace and serenity of belief in Jesus as Lord. Later we were asked to make a decision. I did and felt the Holy Spirit come into my being - my soul. Light filled me. I have never been without the Holy Spirit again.

Others around me doubt. People I love. The point being - we who are strong, don't want to say to those around us - You Doubt?!!! We are bearing with God's Children in encouragement.

Life is in progress.

The Goal is to Finish in Faith.
Our destination is Jesus Christ.
The One who loves you most. Our Hero. The Savior we need.
Naked we were born into the is world, naked we will leave.

Doubt is an incredibly uncomfortable circumstance for the believer. A non-believer can draw comfort from other non-believers the reassuring fact this is unknowable.
















I discovered, personally, people actually can cry so hard that tears leave our faces. A beloved Person in my life came to me to announce the faith defended for years had been abandoned. They were astonished to see my reaction. I sobbed - if you don't know the Love of God, you have nothing.

To dismiss doubt and questioning would not be done to our small children learning about life.

Why would we dismiss doubt and the tools the Bible gives us for learning to overcome doubt that we all experience. Especially when others try to share their disbelief. Be careful with doubters.

Picture several scenarios -

a) A Bible Study that dictates the truth of the Bible. All questions are answered with "Because the Bible says so." You are going to encourage the faithful. This reiterates the Truth. But an early believer in the Bible calls this living on the good milk of the Bible. This young believer is not apt to say - the seeds of life are choking this valued ideal out of my life and I really would like some answers on what is going on in my life.

b) A mature facilitator of the Word of God is going to think about the questions life throws at us to drown out the Truth. Drawing from and coaxing out experiences in others that encourage each other in confidence of shared experience and safety. The facilitator is going to know from thinking this out how the Bible supports itself and will use the stories of Scripture to teach the same point three different ways. This is the way a lot of us learn.

c) You have been invited to a Bible Study that encourages you to understand this is all fable. The discussions are lively. The toad in the water is being gradually warmed to boiling the frog to death. Be vwery caweful. Perhaps it's time to depart. The upward path of the Bible is upward to God. Filled with the reality that this is hard work, life throws curves. God says when we seek Him - we please Him - giving Justice with Mercy and Humility. Love.







Setting the scene for the Disciples.



The reality of Scripture is about situations of real life. These Disciples of Jesus were in awe of Him as they saw impossible things occur. Then they were completely afraid and ran out on these experiences because they were human and overwhelmed. Their lives were at stake and the work of Jesus looked as if it had failed. And suddenly they were shown Jesus was alive.

After a life threatening situation - denial causes the brain to reel back. People will try to act as if they can cope with the disaster as if it was normal circumstance. This is the way Ted Bundy lured people to their deaths. Jesus was Alive!!! And did they believe this - sorta - maybe. And two of the Gospels explain that even in the wake of Salvation - people were not perfect and were in doubt.

Now I ask you, is that a fable type story or does this encompass the reality of Violent Death and Government upheaval?

The Scriptures are painting a very real picture of real events. Not platitudes and fable.

Consider what we know of Cochlear Ear Implants - after the brain is operated on - the recipient of the Cochlear Ear hearing device placed in the brain, have months to overcome. Hearing people sound very odd. The doctors describe this literally as hearing people as if Daffy Duck was talking, because we don't hear with our ears, we hear with a brain to ear connection.



Mark 8:23-25

23 And he took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and when he had spit on his eyes and laid his hands on him, he asked him, “Do you see anything?” 24 And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.” 25 Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.


The event of the life of Jesus you just read is recorded by similar stories in the Talmud recordings of the Sanhedrin Council. The actual Sanhedrin Council records the baffling and upsetting miracles surrounding Jesus of Nazareth. Housed in a museum in Scotland. What you just read is a 2,000 year old account of recovery from brain surgery. A Miracle with logic. Uncovered in this generation. Millenniums after the event we can see Jesus left us this mystery for it to be revealed. Blessed are the eyes that didn't see this miracle and yet believe.

Jesus is alive and working today.
Fact. And Good News. 

Really think about Mark 8. 
I discussed this in the nineteen seventies with my great-aunt Eloise. I asked here why the trees looked like walking trees. She said because that is the way Jesus decided to work the miracle. THIS IS A MIRACLE EXPLAINED TO OUR GENERATION. 


Read Hebrews 11 , the real people of the real Word of God have had doubts. Jesus always works with sinners, He loves you as you are. The disciples had time to process, time to adapt, saw the Holy Spirit of God didn't abandon them. Went forth to do such miraculous things in the name of Jesus that the world has never, ever, ever changed this way before. 

We have a spiral of fear with doubt. Will God love me? Is this pointless? God doesn't work on a magic formula. God's Plan is Good and He equips us, He promises, with every good thing to do His Will. The narrow path... this is where life gets meaningful.  God helps sinners, saints, faithful and loves the whole world. If you are talking to God and being very honest, He honestly calls that seeking and He is going to answer. You need to focus on the "Hey, was that answered prayer or was that just om."  That unseen assurance - is God.  Our destination is Jesus. 










I had a loved one tell me once that the list of saints exhausted him.

If you look at the Victory - It's a Miracle. And you just had to be good enough to get there? Well in faith - we are forgiven our sins to adhere with joy to the Word of God.  Not giving God a broom to sweep up - hope He didn't see that. 

Exhausting? Na.

If you break down the Victory into steps - it's Life.

The Victory is usually ... Unseen.

Noah had doubts and got drunk.

Abraham had doubts and became a very unhappy fixer.

Well, say this just couldn't happen if the Holy Spirit lives in you - is wrong. John the Baptist wanted to know if Jesus is God. Prophets have the Holy Spirit. So John the Baptist was telling us about life in God.

A relationship. Up and down. Journey forward, real topics. Real life.


This is about having doubts being strengthened and being allowed by God to have the process.
We can have the Tree of Knowledge. We can know all the Bible. We can be the good seed. The struggling seed.

And Knowing that what covers all this knowledge is - LOVE.

Common problems known to God - 
Being pressed to drink.
Being pressed like Noah to be sexually inappropriate.
Being Perez and having your grandson be your son...
Being the Elijah of the New Testament.

WE are Not God.

This is the story of process and journey.
Abide in Jesus. He will abide in you. WE NEED THIS.

This is about having
Forgiveness - John the Baptist preached this. So did Paul and Peter. Labeling SIN as SIN. Seeking Restitution with God.

Knowing the Peace of God on the afternoons John the Baptist saw the crowds come to learn about God. Inside themselves.

This is Jesus telling the Woman on the Hill in Samaria that God will Dwell within us.

This is about John, Peter, Paul and John Mark wanting to be in Relationship with God.

And in Turmoil - finding a way to healing recovery and joy again.
Fear in Divorce
Fear in Economic Trouble
Loss of Child in Death
Changes of Season in Life
A Fruitful Life Looking for Meaning
Always Being Able to Say I'm Learning from God
Seeing God Unfold His Plan, coming to terms with Joy

Saying JESUS - is where we will Trust.
In doubt, in emotion, in joy, in prayer
THE LORD'S PRAYER

We do not have to solve anything totally today. Because God will be for us. We just have to try a little bit.And Try again. And communicate. God had to sweep up after all these amazing people He loves - He probably is going to not drop us on our head and leave us there.

Don't take your whole life, make it into a pineapple and then devour that in one bite.

Lean a little bit on God.

Matthew 11:28
Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."


Day in, Day out, Seasons Come.
The Church is still Going Forth.
Solutions are God's Specialty.
HE says that He is the destination.
Father God loves you.



Father God, where is our Joy? The adventure of what You have brought us through. You have been steadfast. How many things have we overcome? Many. You are Strong Lord. Make us strong again in Your Might. Schemes to bring us down? Not from You. Let us hold up our Problems to You. You are our armor, strength and shield. The Armor of God cannot be removed. You are our fortress.

In the fortress of God, we will see the mercies of God renew. If we don't count the blessings - they fly by unappreciated. What is in the Fortress of God - joy and peace in our belief. The Power of the Holy Spirit - is hope. Compassion and Mercy are the fruit from believers. The destination is salvation.

Jesus is compassionate and merciful. Our advocate. You will call us to defend our hopes with gentleness and respect but our defense in You is sure. God will call me to do what He strengthens me to do. On this I trust in Jesus, our Strong Deliverer. Amen.

Bible Study on Doubt



If you name who doubted in the Bible, you are going to come up with Sarah, Abraham, Gideon and Thomas. Yep. Pretty long ago.

And if you think of miracles, perhaps you remember the phrase about the mustard seed.







Oh, the times we live in.
Remember with me, the Kings of Israel exist in our Bible to point out lessons in humanity.
14 generations and 14 generations and 14 generations and BAM-  big news.
In the New Covenant - 500 years and 500 years and BAM - big news.

So -  Where are we?
Well, when you look at the list on Matthew 1, we are in the - "Huh" - years. We are.

We do not remember the list towards the name of JESUS. Huh, who are they?

In the 1800s, you had the amazing defeat of Gin Lane in Europe and portions of the USA where Jesus Christ was having a revival. Charles and John Wesley, The Salvation Army. The defeat of poverty's grinding hopelessness and the conquering of the upper classes ennui. The Middle Class was graced to grow. New ways to have agriculture and the cotton gin. The ability to have mass production. If you worked hard, you could see that the Laws of God make society form a pattern. Hope and hard work with the goodness of all men understanding - form work and reward - trust or faith, hope of opportunity.  Love can be taken care of with the wife and kids and not despair.

Kings in the Bible? You quickly learn, one generation of knowledge passes away - REALLY FAST. We all want to know - "Sure, but what about ME?"

We don't always believe that yesterday happens again today!!! What's the point of learning from the last generation...




Gotta love teenagers. The word 'Posers'.
People in my area are Affluent. If you speak with the car dealers you will find, people are carrying a note on that Lexus for six years. And then rolling it into another car. With more debt.

People will let you know they are calm and assured. With great worries they aren't happy.

We are in the "Huh" Years.
86% of our population believes in God and praying to Him. However, our marriage statistics say 50% of new births in the USA are in the not-the-wide highway-of- destruction, but NOT the narrow path of meaningful discovery.

Marriage equals commitment - the belief you can work life in this direction with love, happiness leading to success.

Why? People do not believe they are secure.
They have seen their parents divorce for 'it just wasn't fun' to work their brains out to afford a house. They have seen work isn't fun and if you pour your life of 30 years into a job, the company might change management, have a recession, but then old loyalties are not important in "Business."

The "Huh" years.
The Kings were doin OK. But the people were paying tax and the leaders just were not that inspiring. Business as usual. No real hope for zest in life. One foot in front of the other. Not exactly war at home, but dang where is the Zip, the Zang.

The Prophets got it.
This is where all the minor prophets live.
Justice was needed. The problem is that it sounds dang grim. Get grim about reality and wow - in lack of Zing, Zang, Zest times - people will not heed you.













Doubt is not just in Abraham. Doubt is in ALL the people of the Bible. - Minus Jesus.

Jesus the Lord never jumped in front of the worried disciples and screamed "Fired."



We have this idea that God is in Heaven with this Great Big Gauge

Believes Enough to Deserve His Blessings   -    Doubter


God said HE spits out the Lukewarm. True. But if you earnestly seek Him. He is going to be there.

Earnestly, Honestly Seek Him.


I feel uncomfortable when we sing on the radio - songs about God being all we need.
In Genesis - God created people have to have needs. 
God created us to need Him in a tangible world.
Are we kidding? God put us here with people and problems and challenges and worries and blessings. God didn't say - don't complain.
God says - I'm With You Always.
God says in the Bible we want Life because God gave us that desire.


Of all the people to have a son from - would You Pick David?
He killed people for a living.
He was a sinner who had ingratitude.
David expected to want Life and to know God is Merciful. Expected Mercy.
God values heart and honesty and Love.
God valued the up and back again life seeking a forward place.


God said realize what idols are and put Him First.
He did name a second place, soo.... you gotta assume HE didn't mean for us to only want Him.
God did not say run around looking cheerful as a lie.
Don't say that your life doesn't matter. HE says He is Life.




If you believe that it is yours - it is yours. Tell that to your poker friends.  At work.

Ha! Haahhaha ha ha ha. Welllll. God is going to bless those HE will bless and not others.
What to do with that attitude?

Sign up if you are unblessed. Ok. You should now be blind, deaf, shaky, and watch a lot of TV. Because you have failed to find treasure in what is around you. Have you taken care of the people in your life that you are not expecting to benefit from but you just like? Have you painted a room just because you needed a different way to look at the room? If only, if only, if only God had provided a WAY that we could use our voices with emotion and conversation, reach out, to use a device to convey conversation across the street, the state, the country.

Or we could type LOL.







 If you believe God knows your trouble, do you drudge up and down and say secretly, ever so secretly, "That Dratted God, is a Miser." Maybe, you better really have that conversation with God.






If you tell yourself you believe that God does exist... are you saying to Him today - by the end of the day I'm going to do one little thing that enriches others and shows Him I treasure what I have. This is a way of saying Thank You.

Improve. What you can bless by commenting on that improvement. Did Hollywood get any praise for recognizing some people try to be better people as Christians? Hollywood did not really get lavish praise.


Take the Movie Cowboys and Aliens - this is advice, for today, from the Preacher during Crisis.

Doc: It's my fault she got took. I never should have taken her to that town.
Meacham: Oh, no! No! No! It's not your fault. You'll get her back. You're setting things right. Just gotta have faith, that's all.
Doc: Faith?
Meacham: Mmhmm.
Doc: Yeah. God's been real swell to me. I don't mean no disrespect, preacher, but either he ain't up there or he don't like me very much.
Meacham: Well, surely you don't expect the Lord to do everything for you. Do you, Doc? You gotta earn His presence. And then you gotta recognize HIM. And then you have to act on His Word.



And find What wind Serves to advance an honest mind.
John Donne






Sometimes we are meant to worry.
We are supposed to grow. To decide to act. To decide to speak up.
Faith of a mustard seed doesn't make us God, we learn to trust some.





And then doubt does this...



Deuteronomy 28:66
Your life shall hang in doubt before you. Night and day you shall be in dread and have no assurance of your life.


We really don't want that... that looks Bad.







Every single Disciple Doubted to some degree. Do you believe me? Yep. Even after the Resurrection. That was a Very Upsetting Event. And Jesus was among them.

Matthew 28 ends with this paragraph. See verse 17. A very honest verse. Would you include that in your gospel? I might not. John did.

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


What did the Disciples of Jesus do with this Doubt. They did what they could to muster themselves to please God. They didn't place God soooo faaaar away. The Book of Acts of the Disciples says that some went out and Great Things Were Happening. Yet all the names are not mentioned. And still the world was so moved by this vast effort that in 16 years the name of JESUS CHRIST created faith, hope and Love across the world.

What did they do? They met to pray. They physically moved themselves to look someone in the eye and pray. I bet you! When they prayed, it was honest. These people hunkered down together in fear. They knew to print they had doubts. Real events require real conversation. Be honest about doubt.

God took that honest effort. Even doubting. And He turned that Doubt into Faith. Because they didn't quit. They met to pray. They broke bread and took meals. They were honest and not relying upon mere images.

God.
The God of Vengeance. The God of Wrath.
He could have said, "Not them. They don't even believe Jesus alive again."
He could have pointed fingers.
And instead He had mercy on them for seeking Him. He created from their lives a way forward. God blesses human hearts seeking Him. He doesn't work with perfect. God creates His God Miracles from lives of sinners. Even in the face of Jesus, The Gospel of John records the last chapter having human wrangling.

That's a Lot of Love when God doesn't give up on us.



Father God, Creator the Universe! You never give up on Free Will. You didn't give up on us when the Cathedral Notre Dame was having the furniture burned and sacrifices to idols deliberately offending You during the French Revolution. You didn't give up on the idea of Freedom. Not when the City of Houston demanded Pastors turn over their sermons.

When the circumstances of life were ok yesterday and weigh heavily today, You tell us to be patient in tribulation, be steadfast in prayer. Rejoice in hope we don't have to figure it out right this second. Your Solution will arrive. We Expect You.

We are going to remember the Deeds we love in Scripture. We are going to remember with Joy! You have amazed us in this life. How Great You Are.

Help us this day to deliver You our best. Seize the moment we realize Your Mercies are New Each Morning. Thank You, Father God, for those around us Encouraging us to Go Forth in You.In Jesus will hope. Amen

Luke 12:1-7 ~ even the hairs of your head are all numbered


Luke 12:1-7

4 “I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do. 5 But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7 Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.


____________________________


NOPE!!!
____________________________



How do we please God? 
Knowing the secrets of our hearts are His. Giving Justice with Mercy. Being humble.
 Honoring God. Honoring others and not forgetting ourselves. 
The concept - I am third is incorrect!
This comes from thinking we all heave ourselves to the top. Actually, the Bible tells us honor others as ourselves.

 A shared concept. 
There is a story of a poor newlywed couple at Christmas. The wife cut off all her hair for her husband to have a component to his hobby equipment. The Husband sold all his hobby equipment to buy all the beauty accessories to place in his wife's beautiful hair. 

1 Corinthians 13 is perfect love. Psalm 100 is as well. 
With God all secrets of our hearts are seen and known. 
With human beings, questions need to be asked.

A child is given money as a family tradition from his grandmother to buy Christmas gifts. His mother insists he needs to spend the money on himself and not the adults. He never learns the joy of Giving at Christmas.

A wife always gives her children and husband the best in life. She eventually sits behind in the adventures in life.

A mother tells her child - go with friends to the football game at Thanksgiving, almost every year. When the mother dies, the adult child has been invited to vacation with friends and knows her mother would want her enjoyment.

Good intentions - bad results. God thinks your life is worth knowing in such great detail - He knows about our hair. Asking for no respect, will indeed have the effect of - no love.

Respect is what we owe; love, what we give.
Philip James Bailey






Psalm 33

Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!

3 Sing to him a new song;

play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.

4 For the word of the Lord is upright,
and all his work is done in faithfulness.
5 He loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.

13 The Lord looks down from heaven;
he sees all the children of man






Ephesians 1:11-14
In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. 

In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it to the praise of his glory.

Mankind has a way of upholding traditions of men. Jesus had a whole lot of this figured out when He walked among us full of Grace upon Grace. Walking a better path.

Are we sure this Jesus is God? Look what the Disciple John wrote after following Jesus:


The Ryland Papyrus in Manchester, England is from 90 A.D. John's Gospel. Bishop Papias of Hierapolis wrote his History of Jesus while John was alive in 103 A.D. as an aged and active man. Isaiah 47 explains why Jesus would ask the disciple who remained by Him to take care of His Mother.

1 John 1

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— 2 the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— 3 that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.


Father God, John knew You bring Joy. You know all of us - all our variations, flaws and sins. Where would we go, Father, other than You? Your Words give Life. Both Peter and John knew Life was Yours. Give us the Day, Jesus!

From the beginning Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos, Solomon and Paul  have written saying you are the Word of Life. Long life is from honoring You. We honor and serve You Lord your God with joyfulness and gladness of heart, remembering the abundance of what You have Given. A very good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, Living Water flowing in abundance.

Lord Father GOD make us mindful of the blessings we would never wish to depart!!! In Jesus. Amen.
