THE LIVING GOD #NOTHING #IMPOSSIBLE

Well, have YOU ever had one of those days that __nothing goes right…just impossible situations?   Yesterday started out fine because my yard was getting the maintenance  it desperately needed.  However,  after I checked on the lawn-men and payed them, I was talking on the phone when it went dead.  My modem had a blinking red light and the phone showed (check service line)  So as I was surveyed the premises outside, I notice this powdery sandy substance on the foundation of the house.  What now?  Got on cell phone to AT&T and Pest Control.  After answering many computers, I finally talked to  humans!  AT&T could service me the next day between 8:30 and 12:30.  Pest Control had a possible opening in two days.  Now today at 10:00 they both show up at the same time – go figure!  Pest controller found carpenter bees at the bottom of a window shutter which he sprayed.  The AT&T Tech found the phone line had been cut by the lawn mower or weed whacker!  So I have a line lying above ground from the pole to my house until “the line crew digs the trench to bury it in two weeks.   The phone and internet are restored (for now).  I felt so helpless and totally dependent on the experts in areas beyond my control.  While reading the Bible today, I am reminded that we all have limits, but with our LIVING GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.  Mark 10:27  “Jesus looking upon them said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God:  for WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.”    I would have never imagined that I could share my love for the Lord with all of you around the world through the internet via Find Bible Truth this week, but within God’s purpose all things are possible.  Just read about Elizabeth and Mary in Luke 1  and then v.37 “FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE.”  Now what about us?  “WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD: for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”

#Complaining, #whining, #depression… it is easy to fall into a pattern of these things.  How does the Bible say that we can break this cycle?  What is inherent in even the most primitive cultures?   How has praise for the Lord changed over time?  How has it stayed the same?  Where should praise occur?  Why do we owe the Lord our praise?  How do we praise properly?

THE LIVING GOD #PRAYED

Have you ever PRAYED to the only LIVING GOD?  As a young child, I was taught in #Church, #Sunday #School, and #Vacation #Bible School  by #teachers and #preachers from the Bible about God -the#Father, Jesus Christ -the #Son, and Holy Spirit -the #Comforter being separate, but one GOD.  Now in my senior years of life, I am still amazed and in utter awe at GOD’s  Omniscient Plan yet Compassionate Love to save us from eternal hell if we only PRAY to the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ asking forgiveness of our sins.  Miracle of Miracles then God the Father will accept us through His Son’s sacrificial blood for our sin and then we are given the Holy Spirit to Comfort us into eternity with the LORD.  I personally have prayed to God through Jesus Christ asking for forgiveness, redemption, and salvation.  I have had the privilege of being with many loved ones as they prayed and asked Christ to take away their sin as they wanted to live life with the Lord as their guide through life.  So why continue to pray if your saved?   Did Jesus leave us an example of prayer?  Did Jesus pray to God His Father?  He told his disciples while at Gethsemane, “Sit you here, WHILE I SHALL PRAY” Mark 14:32,39  “again HE went away and PRAYED and spake the same words”  (It’s ok to repeat)   May all of us be like his disciple seeking the LORD. “…as He (JESUS) was PRAYING in a certain place, when He finished, one of disciples said unto Him, Lord, teach us to pray.…and He (JESUS) said unto them, When YOU PRAY, SAY, ‘OUR FATHER’ WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME.  THY KINGDOM COME.  THY WILL BE DONE, AS IN HEAVEN, SO IN EARTH.  GIVE US DAY BY DAY OUR DAILY BREAD.  FORGIVE US OUR SINS; FOR WE ALSO FORGIVE EVERY ONE THAT IS INDEBTED TO US.  LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION; BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL.”  Luke 11:1-4

#RIP or #RestInPeace, we see it on #Facebook or #Twitter whenever someone passes away.  But, what does it mean and is it possible?  What is the Sabbath and how does it relate to rest?  Does God get tired?  Why did He take a day of rest?  God set an example, but what did He command us concerning a day of rest?  Why do Christians worship and rest on the first day of the week instead of the seventh?  What does all of this have to do with the Passover?  What does the Sabbath that comes from God through his Son, Jesus Christ, have to do with eternal rest?
