A Nation Falls

Philippians 3:20 [NASB]
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;

My spirit within me is grieved today.
We have lost our bearings
our compass

Without a revelation of Jesus in
the hearts of the people
we are undone.

God knows
He is not surprised
although I am sure He is saddened.

But maybe it is to reinforce
in our minds that this is not our home.
We are citizens of heaven even now.

So we must live as citizens of heaven
With the Lord's work foremost in our mind.
Abide in the Lord and let His word abide in you

Pray that we stay above the ruckus
and cling to the pure Word of God.
Going about the Father's business

Not looking to the right or the left
but to Him.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Fear Not
The Lord is our light in a dark world

He will see us through

HE is our strength and shield
There is none t fear so long as
we abide in His light

Though the world grow dark
For we have a light that shall
never go out
is always there to
save us.

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

As the world tumbles into chaos and those
who think they have the answers
conjure up their one world schemes

Stay close to Jesus. 
Your soul is more valuable
than anything the world has to offer.

I love the psalms where it says
the nations make their plans
but God laughs

Rejoice and Fear Not
For the Lord is with us

The real question is are we with Him.

But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.

His Glory is all around
for those who have eyes to see.
Look for it,
Seek it out
Rejoice at His glory

And know that soon
All the earth will see His glory

God is good
and full of Glory

Sing unto the Lord

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.

The Lord loves our praise
Loves our singing of His goodness.
And He is worthy!

Let your heart sing
Sing new songs to Him
Sing hymns and worship Him.

Let your spirit break forth in song!

First Things

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Simply put
GOD is to be First!

I was with a friend the other day
and I started laughing.
The thought of how many books do we read
how much preaching do we listen to,
how much do we research and study the things of God

miss this simple commandment.

hinges on this simple idea.

IF life were a flow chart
all problems would start with this sequence
Is GOD First in your life?

If the answer is no, 
go back to square one.

God IS

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

God's fingerprints are everywhere you look
The sky in its awesome expanse
The stars set just so

The flowers and animals
majestic mountains
bubbling rivers
and giant oaks

Take time to see
God is awesome

Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye

How easy we forget that the cornerstone of our faith is forgiveness.
We might cling to our own need
but to extend that forgiveness to others
often gets lost in the hectic world
of rights.

As Christians, we have the right to be forgiven
if we forgive others.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Today, forgive others
so you may be forgiven.

Amazing God

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. 

God is amazing

We lose sight of that and
soon we begin to drift with the waves
of the worldly ways.

But consider
He is
The Great I AM

Before all
Maker of all

HE is the Alpha and the Omega

Nothing exists that He didn't create
The smallest particle to the largest mountain.

Marvel at the Great I AM
Be amazed at our 
Amazing God

Renewing Your Mind

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Thoughts, Attitudes
They set  your day
Set your mood

So how do you renew your mind?

God's word is truth
the world is constantly bombarding
our minds with lies.

Contrary to God's word
the world teaches to look out for yourself.
The sky is falling

But what does God's word say?
For every circumstance you find yourself in
Search the word of God
Pray for His revelation and truth
And proclaim it

Speak God's truth aloud 
and renew your mind.
Your thoughts and attitude will follow
and you will be transformed.

Proverbs 15:1

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

Like angry storm clouds, angry words stir up a tempest.
Words are so proud
once they are let loose
there is no calling them back.

Sound travels never stopping
our words go
and never stop.

Scary thought if they are not righteous words.

The Bible says we will give account for every word we utter.
Makes me want to put tape over my mouth.

Even more reason to know the Word of God
And speak His Words

That will keep us out of trouble.

God is good
His Word is true.
