I also praise God for the progress for Job and pray for progress for Christi in her chemo. Today I removed Mom's bandages and cleaned her surgery site and rebandaged it. All looks good, thank the Lord!Praying too, and also for you, Sister.
"The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble."
The Lord is our refuge and our strength. It takes a great deal of wisdom to realize that.
Our lives are much more than possessions and positions. Our lives are gifts from God;
given to us and to others for His glory. We need not ask what more God can do for us,
but what we might do to serve God. He will surely let us know.
Father, I sometimes need to escape: from the world, from myself, from the things that
tie me down. Be my liberation and my sanctuary and my rest. Strengthen me for Your service
in Jesus' name, Amen.
I saw this posted elsewhere and thought I'd share. When Satan reminds you of your past, remind him of his future!
1 John 4
On Denying the Incarnation
4 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit[a] of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
God’s Love and Ours
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
jjoey, so good to see you! You and your family remain in my prayers! Glad to hear you are doing fine. Are you snowed in yet?
My friend Cheryl is planning for the funeral of her mother-in-law. She and her husband are Christians, but her husband's two brothers are not. The fighting over the will has begun even before the funeral Thursday. Please say a prayer for this family
"In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: 'Flee like a bird to your mountain.' "
We are overexposed to choices. Every day someone will try to tell us that we need one more thing
in order to make our lives complete. Ads tells us that we should be dissatisfied with what we have,
that we need something different. The truth is, when we find what works, or what is right, or what
we like, no one should be able to tell us that we're wrong. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth,
and the life, and no one and nothing can ever take His place. We are already Kingdom people.
There's no reason to try anything else.
Lord, when I feel surrounded by outside pressure, reach out to me that I might know I have
nothing to fear. Teach me Your truth each day. Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light
unto my path. Your ways bring me peace even in troubled times. As Paul said, I need
to know nothing but Christ, and Him crucified. Add to my faith and lead me to right
decisions so that I may serve others and glorify Your name, for You alone are worthy
of praise. In Jesus' name, Amen.
