Seek the Lord and LIVE!

March 23, 2016

Psalm 20:7-8 AMPC … Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God. 8 They are bowed down and fallen, but we are risen and stand upright.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses
… A horse is a false hope for victory
… Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength. –
Ps 33:17
Those who trust in this type of strength will fall.

Trust in and depend on the Lord
Turn to Him
Wholeheartedly seek His face –
Jer 29:13
The eye of the Lord is on His loyal followers 
Ps 33:18
Your steps are ordered –
Ps 37:23
Rise up and stand by His hand.Ps 37:24

Seek the Lord and LIVE!

Trust Him and believe
Listen for His word –
Is 55:3
You will see His goodness in the land of the living! –
Ps 27:13

Wait patiently for the LORD
Be of good courage
He will strengthen your heart –
Ps 27:14
You will LIVE
To declare His goodness!

Psalm 118:15-17 NKJV … The voice of rejoicing and salvation{deliverance} is in the tents of the righteous; The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted; The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the Lord.

Living Faith

April 26, 2015

Hebrews 10:37-39 AMP
37 For still a little while (a very little while), and the Coming One will come and He will not delay.
38 But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it]; and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him.
39 But our way is not that of those who draw back to eternal misery (perdition) and are utterly destroyed, but we are of those who believe [who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by faith preserve the soul.

Romans 1:17 AMP
17 For in the Gospel a righteousness which God ascribes is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed through the way of faith that arouses to more faith]. As it is written, The man who through faith is just and upright shall live and shall live by faith.

The just shall live by faith
Not shrinking back
But pressing in
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This faith leads to more faith
Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ

Don’t give up
Keep pressing in!

Prayer:
Colossians 2:6-7 NLT
6 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to live in obedience to Him. 7 Let your roots grow down into Him and draw up nourishment from Him, so you will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all He has done.

Faith(The Humble) contrasted to The Proud
Faith Proud Verse
righteous are preserved – they do not faint(Isa 40:31) – they live the proud with impure/greedy desires can’t withstand God’s judgement – they faint Hab 2:4
faithful are preserved the proud are judged by God and paid back in full Ps31:23
blessed is the one who makes the LORD his trust the proud fall away to lies or turn to false gods Ps40:4
the humble are given grace by God the proud are opposed by God Pro3:34;1Pe5:5;Ja4:6
the humble will be honored by God the proud will be humiliated by God Pro29:23
The humble stand firm in faith and endure the proud rebel(do not stand firm) and are devoured by the sword Isa7:9,1:19-20
The Lord’s blessing is on the faithful who trust in Him The Lord’s curse is on the proud who trust in mere human beings and whose heart turns away from the Lord Jer17:5-8

Nothing Impossible

July 20, 2011

Matthew 17:20 AMP … He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Living faith is
Abiding vitally untied to the vine.

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. -Jn 15:4-5 AMP

To him who believes
… who has a living faith
… who has faith, confidence and a firmly relying trust in Jesus
All things are possible!

All things are possible to him who believes. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” -Mk 9:23-24

Live in Me, and I will live in you
that My joy will live and endure in you,
and that your joy may be full, complete, perfect, lacking nothing.

Living faith produces the fruit of joy; everlasting joy. -Jn 15:16

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. -Ps 16:11

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. -Jn 15:11

Don’t be afraid; just believe. -Mk 5:36
