Lord, You are more precious than silver;
Lord, You are more costly than gold;
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds;
And nothing I desire compares with You. ~Lynn De Shazo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Psalm 119:13-16 NASB … With my lips I have told of
All the ordinances of Your mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate on Your precepts and regard Your ways.
16 I shall delight in Your statutes; I shall not forget Your word.

Psalm 19:8The precepts{statutes} of the LORD are right, rejoicing{giving joy to} the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes{giving insight to life}.

Proverbs 3:13-15Blessed are those who find wisdom, and those who get understanding. 14 For the profit of wisdom is better than silver, and her wages are better than gold. 15 Wisdom is more precious than jewels; And nothing you desire compares with her.

God’s Word is a treasure, more precious than riches,
=> Nothing you desire compares with the joy of walking in His Way, Truth and Life(Jn 14:6)!

Display your new nature which has been
… created in righteousness and holiness of the truth –

Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness,
… humility, gentleness and patience
Forgive as the Lord forgave you
Let the peace of Christ rule. –

Ephesians 5:6-10,15-16 NASB … Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. … 15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

Perfect Timing

October 16, 2016

perfecttime

Psalm 11:4-7 AMPC … The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven. His eyes behold; His eyelids test and prove the children of men. 5 The Lord tests and proves the [unyieldingly] righteous, but His soul abhors the wicked and him who loves violence. 6 Upon the wicked He will rain quick burning coals or snares; fire, brimstone, and a [dreadful] scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. 7 For the Lord is [rigidly] righteous, He loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold His face, or He beholds the upright.

The Lord is Sovereign and very aware. He is patiently timing His interventions. His timing is perfect!

Psalm 31:15 … My times are in Your hands …

I Will Come Again!

October 15, 2016

Above all know-remember this:
=>in the last days scoffers will deny the promise of Christ’s return
=>they argue since it has not occurred yet
=>it will not happen. –
2Pe 3:4

dt31_6

2 Peter 3:8-9 NASB … But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

John 14:1-3 NASB … Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.
