Be blessed. Because we ARE! Amen

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.
Philippians 4:13-15

Be still.

Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

+ Exodus 14:14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.

+ Psalm 37:7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!

+ Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.

+ Job 6:24 Teach me, and I will be silent; make me understand how I have gone astray.

+ Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. 

And we ask for forgiveness.

While we have all sinned, we must recognize that true repentance comes from turning back to God. For those who have backslidden or turned their backs on God, they will only find forgiveness when they return to the Lord. Furthermore, we cannot save ourselves. In order for our hearts and minds to be transformed and restored, we must seek the Lord, for only He can renew us. Much like we hear people reminiscence about β€œthe good old days,” this verse refers to the feeling one has of peace and goodness that follows once his spirit has been restored.

And we pray:

Dear God, forgive me for turning away from You. I know that You sent Your Son to forgive me of my sins, and this separation from You is painful. I know only You can save me from this life of sin. Draw me to Your Essence, O Lord. Renew my heart and restore me. Allow Your grace and mercy to fill my life and overflow to those You have placed around me. May I live a life that honors Your amazing Love and forgiveness. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Our Source of Joy!!!

Hope, joy, knowledge.

What is ‘mine’, I owe it ALL to The LORD, for from His Essence it has come, Amen.

AMEN.

Pray without ceasing. How?

Don’t Be Stingy; Share With Others.

God Bless You.

And Who/What is Love? Not ‘love,’ but “Love”

We often may/will/can/do say “I love you.” Do we really mean that? What is ‘love’? An emotion/feeling/expression? What we feel?

Just why? Where did love originate? All the ‘flufiness’, doing things for the one you ‘love’…

John includes both himself and his readers as believers in the beginning of this verse. His words clearly state that both knowing and believing are important. In many modern churches, believing has been emphasized apart from knowing God. This can lead to people who accept Jesus yet do not live for Him. These people may be “born of God,” but they show no signs of “abiding” in Him. Other church movements greatly emphasize knowing God, whether through worship experiences or service to others, yet fail to emphasize salvation. Such people may not have any real relationship with Christ at all, since their concept of God is based on fickle human feelings.

Both “to know and to believe” are essential in the life of a Christian believer. We must believe in who Christ really is, for salvation. We must “know” Him through obedience and fellowship, to be accepted in our actions, and to be blessed by Him.

John adds in the second part of this verse his refrain from verse 8. Namely, that “God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” The person who continues in love is also continuing in God. In other words, love for God and others is the way to remain growing in the Lord. Those who do so have God abiding or living in them. Great, godly love is a powerful sign that a person is a genuine believer in Christ.

And Paul prayed, as we do now:

β€œI pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts throughΒ faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in Love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is The Love of Christ, and to know this Love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-19

What man?

The prior verse indicated that Isaac has been blessed by God, and this verse gives details on the extent of this success. Under God’s great blessing, Isaac’s crops yielded a hundredfold return (Genesis 26:12) even in a time of famine (Genesis 26:1). The result is great and increasing wealth. This is on top of the apparently enormous wealth Isaac had already inherited from Abraham (Genesis 25:5). In short, Isaac was most likely one of the richest men in the region. Like his father, God is making it clear to Isaac that he will be blessed for following God’s instructions (Genesis 22:15–18). The covenant God made with Abraham applies to Isaac, and it applies personally, not merely because Isaac is Abraham’s son (Genesis 26:2–5).

Genesis 26:6–35 describes Isaac’s interactions with the Philistines while living in and around the land of Gerar. After Isaac is caught in a lie about Rebekah being his sister, king Abimelech is angry. However, he protects Isaac and Rebekah. God blesses Isaac abundantly, and his wealth grows to the point where his power provokes the king to send him away. Following a series of disputes over water rights, the king and Isaac eventually make a treaty of peace. God appears to Isaac for a second time, telling him not to fear, and renewing His promises.
