Psalm 91:14-16 AMPC
14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high{protect him}, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.

Psalm 9:10 AMPC
10 And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity].

(For the LORD thy God [is] a merciful God;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which He sware unto them. (Deuteronomy 4:31)

Matthew 11:28-30 AMPC … Come to Me[Jesus], all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest.

For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.

The Firm Strength of my Heart

November 1, 2016

 

ps62_2

My flesh and my heart may fail
But You LORD are my Rock
The firm strength of my heart
My Portion forever! –
 Ps73:26

Your loyal love, O LORD
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness to the skies. –
Ps36:5

Praise You Lord Jesus
Your love is beyond understanding
=>wider, longer, higher & deeper than any of us can imagine …

Luke 22:39-46 NASB
The Garden of Gethsemane
39 And He came out and proceeded as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. 40 When He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” 41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, 42 saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” 43 Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground. 45 When He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow, 46 and said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not enter into temptation.”

Your love, Lord Jesus
=>is deeper than any pain!
Mt 26:39;Mk 14:36;Jn 6:38
The firm strength of my heart forever!
HalleluYah!!!

Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT … When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Worshippers that the Lord Seeks

September 25, 2016

John 17:11, 17-19 I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, keep them safe in Your name, the name that You have given Me, so that they may be one just as We are one. …
… 17 Set them apart{sanctify them} in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And I set myself apart{sanctify Myself} for their sakes, that they themselves also may be set apart{sanctified} in truth.

John 4:23-24 NASB … But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

By the sword of the Spirit –Eph 6:17
The Word of God –Jn 17:17
His Spirit&Truth

=> The Lord’s people are set apart and made one{have unity}
=> These are the worshippers the Lord Jesus Christ seeks.

Hebrews 4:12 AMPC … For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.

John 18:37 AMPC … Pilate said to Him, Then You are a King? Jesus answered, You say it! [You speak correctly!] For I am a King. [Certainly I am a King!] This is why I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the Truth. Everyone who is of the Truth [who is a friend of the Truth, who belongs to the Truth] hears and listens to My voice.

Matthew 10:34 AMPC … Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Luke 12:51 AMPC … Do you suppose that I have come to give peace upon earth? No, I say to you, but rather division …

Put on the Whole Armor

July 19, 2016

Eph6_11
Image from 365promises

Put on the whole armor of God
Stand strong
Stand firm
Against all the strategies
And the deceits of the devil –
Eph 6:11
Tighten the belt of truth around your loins –
Eph 6:14
Let your loins be girded{supported with Truth}
And keep your lamps burning –Lk 12:35
The percepts{statues} of the Lord
Give discernment{understanding} –Ps 119:130
To expose every deceitful way –Ps 119:104

Without the belt of truth firmly tightened
You can not carry the sword of the Spirit
Which is the word of God! –
Eph 6:17
Without the sword there is NO protection
Against the terrors of the night –
Song 3:8

God’s word is a lamp unto your feet –Ps 119:105
Revealing the path of life! –Pro 10:17

From Keep Your Lamps Burning

A lamp in ancient times was a vessel with oil and a wick carried in the hand to light the path to walk on.

  • The picture here is that as we walk, our hand (which speaks of our works) needs to hold up (apply/do) the lamp (which is the Word) ==> then our lamps will be lit and burning and our eyes will see the “straight” path {path leading to life} before us!

Ephesians 6:10-17 AMPC … 10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides]. 11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. 13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place]. 14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of {righteousness}integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God, 15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace. 16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one]. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.

Psalm 91:4 NLT … He will shield you with His wings. He will shelter you with His feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection{your protective wall}.
