Happy is the Man

How often do we thank the Lord for His correction or chastening hand in our life?

It be safe to say, not all that often, but it should be.

  • Thank you Lord for not allowing me to continue on that path…
  • Thank you Lord for stopping me from doing…
  • Thank you Lord for preventing me from…
  • Thank you for protecting me…

The list goes on my friends.

The loving, correcting hand of God brings joy not grief in our life.

Maybe, we should spend some time thinking about how God has delivered us, spared us, rescued us, saved us by creating a list of thanks for His inflicting pain that brought His binding relief; for through His wounds, His hands heal us.

Coal, Sand, Worms, God and You!

  • The coal never questions God and look what it becomes.
  • The sand never questions God and look what it becomes.
  • A worm never questions God and look what it becomes.

Let it be said of us…the human never questions God, and look what it becomes.

  • God loves you beyond a piece of coal, sand, and a worm; beyond their transformations.
  • That’s why He sent His Son…for you, because you are worth it. Your transformation is worth it to Him.
  • Don’t sell yourself short…He didn’t with you.
  • God loves you!

–Matthew 6:33–

Wonderment & Ugliness

  • The wonder of it all is that Jesus died for me and for you! His love had no boundary then nor does it today. His love is unchangeable. His love is the pinnacle, example of what true love is. His love for mankind: to restore fellowship between man (creation) and Himself (Creator).
  • This is only the beginning. We can never experience God fully until we untaintedly see how disgusting, filthy and repulsing our sin is to thee righteous and holy God — my sin separates me from God! It is not God’s lack of love or kindness, but my sin.
  • When we begin to understand how incredibly ugly our sin is we start to fathom the depths of our salvation through Jesus Christ. We begin to have sight into how deeply we need God, His salvation. Our eyes are opened to our incredible need for salvation through Jesus Christ and we ask (https://inchristiamshe.com/eternity/).
  • “No one can truly know the unimaginable wonder of salvation until they have truly felt the unbearable weight of their sin.”
  • Stand in awe and wonder! Live fully in Jesus Christ (John 10:10). Salvation is only the beginning of the journey!
  • Have you thanked Him?

Special thank you to Joe Henson III for allowing me to use his quote! May the Lord bless you!

Light & Truth: It’s Real!

There are many situations that present themselves in this life that leave us in doubt or wonder, even scared to step forward, but in God’s gracious love, once again, He displays His love through His Word and shows us who He is; Light and Truth; always and forever leaving us knowing His truest intent and plan. There is no darkness, ill will, selfishness, or deceit in God himself, but rather light, truth, life, honest well-intention which is for our best. This also includes those times when we don’t understand His wise and loving plan, but it doesn’t change Him; His way is perfect because He is perfect! Truly, this is of great comfort.

Today, take time to delight in God.

  • Thank Him for being Him, for being the Light that breaks through all darkness and the Truth in the midst of great confusion.
  • Thank Him for His wise instructions to you…and take time to stop. Listen. As a human child we all go through the learning process of obedience, submission, and following instructions, but we forget it doesn’t stop there, it continues our whole life through in God’s eyes! If our obedience, submission, or instruction isn’t from and towards God, it is to and for someone (self included) or something else. We all submit, the question is to who or what? We be wise to evaluate?

God loves you.

  • How much do you love God?
  • Can God see or experience your love, your praise, your thanks, your devotion towards Himself?
  • Does He know how much you love Him?
  • If not, why not child of God?*
