1 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous. Praise befits the upright. 2 Praise the Lord with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings. 3 Sing to him a new song; play skilfully 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.
6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all their host by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle; he put the deeps in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples. 11 The counsel of the Lord stands for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12 Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage.
13 The Lord looks down from heaven; he sees all humankind. 14 From where he sits enthroned he watches all the inhabitants of the earth— 15 he who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds. 16 A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. 17 The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save.
18 Truly the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, 19 to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and shield. 21 Our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. 22 Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
Today,in Georgia and Alabama as we rode along, the sunset wasn't recoded well on my phone. But the sky was identical to yesterday's photo of the sunset in early spring. God uses these messages to say, "Know I am here in your lives. Know I Love You. Know and Believe I am true, that faith, hope and Love are the best of life. All of My Promises are for you and real."
Peace. We want to have this oasis of joy. God tells us to cheer up. This Life is guaranteed to have troubles. Jesus will solve, cover, destroy, finish, recreate situations for us to learn. No. Jesus says He will overcome. With the Heavens proclaiming the Glory of God -
I'd say - God is indeed correct, again.
God says His fruit is Peace, well yes, but Love is first and Joy. Finding this in the midst of the push and pull of life. Sometimes we put up with situations with an enforced sense of calm - to give Love. Then we let that Love as an action begin to plant the seeds of Joy and Patience. With the balance being - let Love be genuine.
Jesus is pronounced very similarily to Joshua. A compliment to Joshua for discovering the Balance of God's Work in our lives - daily.
To wake and ask God - please be part of my heart today. To say in effect - let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing and acceptable to You. Oh Lord, my rock and redeemer.
To be very aware when the mercies of Father God renew each day - to tell ourselves even by text - what is exciting about today. The wonder of the Wind of Life picking up. God says if we earnestly seek Him - we will discover this Presence of God. Even as you pray for the ill and the needy you see in stores and airports. God is a bringer of hope and healing. God does not lie. He is bringing Salvation to the World through Jesus Christ. Believe this - God says the work of mankind is to believe Him.
How will we do this - God is our help - we ask Him to do this with us.
God bless us all. He can do this in Jesus Christ, He Is God. Amen!
