THE LIVING GOD IS MY HELPER

from Barbara's Bible

Do you have a #helper? There are times in our lives that we all need help. It maybe that you are very able bodied and feel very capable of complete reliance on self. Today, I see more individuals using mechanical devices to aid their independence. Whether it is a #wheelchair, a #hearing aid, or #limb replacements that has made it possible for many to care for themselves or even others that does not change the fact that all of us need help in this world. At my age I have had many helpers: parents, spouse, children, friends, teachers, pastors, doctors, carpenters, repairmen, yard and house help. The one consistent never failing helper in my life is the LIVING GOD who has worked HIS love through the afore mentioned individuals. “THE LORD PRESERVES THE SIMPLE – I WAS BROUGHT LOW AND HE HELPED ME” Ps.116:6 “Give wisdom to the simple and to the young give knowledge and discretion. A wise one will hear and will increase learning and attain wise counsel.” Prov.1:4,5 In all situations in life we make choices that windup helping or hurting us and others. Some choices make us become addicted to substances, people, or behaviors ! God is aware of our strengths and our weaknesses all He asks is that we turn to Him -just ask He hears you. “When evil comes upon you….cry unto LORD GOD while in your affliction and GOD WILL HEAR AND HELP” 11Chronicles20:9 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have, for Lord said, ‘I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU’ so with good courage we may say ‘THE LORD IS MY HELPER’ remember those who have spoken to you the word of GOD and follow in faith ...JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME YESTERDAY AND TODAY AND FOREVER” Heb.13:5-8

Biblical Basis for Missions – New Testament Scriptures

Bible Audio Blog

Beyond the #Gospel, the first four books of the New Testament, which go through the account of Jesus’ birth, life, death, resurrection, and commission what else in the second half of the #Bible gives us reasons to spread the Good News?  What did we learn from the example of the disciples after Christ returned to Heaven?  When did the message of Salvation begin to be disseminated to people other than the Jews?  How can we apply the example and teachings of Paul to our own lives?  Are the rest of the New Testament scriptures missions minded, even Revelations?

The Choice

YOKED WITH THE LIVING GOD

from Barbara's Bible

Are you #yoked with anyone? Yoked can be defined as being coupled or linked together in a joint association even a tie or bond like the “yoke of matrimony”. What a beautiful picture of our relationship with the Living God. “For your Maker is your husband; the LORD OF HOSTS IS HIS NAME” Isaiah 54:5 How many people do you know who are searching for companionship? I see a landscape of drifting, searching, lonely, isolated individuals looking for instant gratification to their wants whether in pill, liquid, smoke, food, or entertainment form. I believe we all need to humble ourselves before our Maker and listen to His Words so that we can have a beautiful relationship with Him. Listen to these words which Jesus Christ spoke, “Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU, AND LEARN OF ME: I AM MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART: AND YOU SHALL FIND REST UNTO YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT.” Mathew11;28-30 Carefully choose your coupling . .

Biblical Basis for Missions – The Means of Missions

Bible Audio Blog

Some of our #leaders and #rulers today do not want to be seen with common folk unless it is for a #photo-op.  Compare that with the #Creator of the Universe who sees us, hears us, and through His Son, Jesus Christ touches us.  Seeing, hearing, and touching are the means of missions still to this day.  Can we see, hear, and touch Christ?  How about others?  From what perspective should we see the world?  What would happen if we could see the world through eyes of faith, hope, and love?  As we attempt to listen, what is it we should hear?  Ironically, Brother Tommy mentions a prediction about the state of missions in the year 2000 (this was in 1987) that never came to pass mainly because of the proliferation of the internet, which is how you’re receiving this now.  But, the internet can’t replace physical contact with the unsaved.  Are you making contact with those that need a savior?
