Darkness versus Light

 

THE LIVING GOD WILL CARRY YOU

Well have you ever needed to be #carried?  I remember my mother telling me about her experience with me when I learned to walk.  We lived in Denver and she liked to walk on the sidewalk in the neighborhood with me; however, she said, I would just sit down about half way around the block causing her to have to pick me up and carry me home.  She said, “She would first walk on thinking I would get up and follow her, but I just sat there!”   What a picture of human nature.  Sometimes in life – we cannot walk on, but need to be carried.  Our loving Heavenly Father knows our weaknesses and will pick us up when we think we cannot go forward.  All the struggles and weariness from destructive forces around  us today can make one have to sit down, exhausted, and seek help greater than our own.  As a child, I gave out and needed to be carried, but now in my senior years I feel God lifting me up when I am in exhausted.  Isaiah 46:4,9 “EVEN TO YOUR OLD AGE I AM HE; AND EVEN TO YOUR GRAY HAIRS WILL I CARRY YOU; I HAVE MADE (you), AND I WILL BEAR (you); EVEN I WILL CARRY (you), AND WILL DELIVER YOU.    Remember the former things of old: for I AM GOD, and there is none else; I AM GOD, and there is none like ME…MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND.”  May we realize GOD’S LOVING CARE.

4 Practices to aid 

Do you appreciate the Word of God?  How many different roles does the Bible say it assumes?  The Word of God says that it is a mirror, water, nourishment, and a lamp among other things.  Are you a critic of the Bible or is it a critic of you?  There is only one weapon given to us against the enemy, can you use it?  Do you know hw to appropriate the Bible and its secrets?  In this day and age, appropriation is frowned upon, but not so with the Word of God.  Have you ever written in your Bible?  How about starting a journal? What are some good questions to ask about the passage you have chosen to read?  Pick a verse and memorize it.

Xander’s Testimony

THE LIVING GOD RESTORES

#Hurricanes, #floods, #tornadoes, #earthquakes, #volcanoes, #tsunamis are happening throughout our earth with frequency this year!  So many lives lost, towns annihilated, homes and structures destroyed as a result of these horrific storms.  In my lifetime, I have never seen so much natural devastation around the world in such a short period of time.  I am so thankful for good people who are willing to tackle the disastrous consequences of the loss of life, property, water, power, and hope.  The wreckage has to be removed before restoration can begin both physically and emotionally.  In life we depend on others for help, but do we depend on the Lord?  David’s Psalms 23 and 24 are comforting words in the Holy Bible which I read at times like these!  “The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains; the world, and those who dwell therein.  He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers….The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.  HE makes me lie down in green pastures; HE leads me beside quiet waters. HE RESTORES MY SOUL; HE guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for Thou art with me: Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.Thou dost prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil My cup overflows.  Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”  Ps.19:7 “The LAW of the LORD IS PERFECT RESTORING THE SOUL:  the testimony of the LORD is sure making wise the simple”  I can testify that God restores my simple soul daily, but He gives me freedom to choose.  Will you choose GOD’S RESTORATION?
