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

“Who were the three men who visited Abraham in Genesis 18?”


Abraham was visited by three men one day; the men turned out to be unusual guests, to say the least, and the visit was life-changing for Abraham and Sarah. Genesis 18:1–2 says, “The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.” Abraham showed immediate hospitality to the three men, inviting them to rest under a tree and preparing a big meal for them (verses 3–8).

During their visit with Abraham, the three men warned him that God’s judgment was about to fall upon Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 18:20–21; 19:12–13). They also promised that Abraham’s wife, Sarah, would have a baby by the same time next year (Genesis 18:10).

Some have suggested that all three of these “men” were angelic beings who appeared to Abraham in the form of men. However, Genesis 18:1 says that it was “the LORD” (Yahweh) who appeared to Abraham. It is the LORD who speaks in verses 13, 20, 26, and 33. Abraham stands “before the LORD” in verse 22. So, one of the three “men” must have been God Almighty taking on the appearance of a man. We call such an appearance a “theophany.” When Jesus appears in His pre-incarnate body in the Old Testament, we call it a “Christophany.” Whether God’s appearance to Abraham in Mamre was a theophany or a Christophany, we don’t know. But it does seem clear from the context that one of the visitors was God Himself (Genesis 18:22) and the other two were the angels who later visited Sodom and spoke to Lot (Genesis 19:1).

Abraham’s response to the appearance of the three men also suggests that he instinctively knew that he was in the presence of God. A typical response to visitors in that culture was to rise and wait for them to approach the home. But Abraham ran to meet them and “bowed low to the ground,” a prostrate posture reserved for royalty or deity.

Abraham was well acquainted with the LORD and would have instantly recognized Him, because the Lord had spoken and/or appeared to him many times before. Those appearances include the following occasions:

• when God first called him (Genesis 12:1–3)
• when Abraham parted ways with Lot (Genesis 13:14–17)
• possibly when he met Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18–20)
• when God made a covenant with him (Genesis 15)
• when God restated His covenant (Genesis 17)

These three visitors whom Abraham entertained were heavenly, and Abraham and Sarah were in the company of God Himself. The story teaches us that God is aware of what is happening on earth, and He is involved. God can even visit or send His heavenly messengers to help fulfill His plans. We may not always realize whom we are speaking with, so we should treat everyone as though they were on special assignment from God. Hebrews 13:2 reminds us, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”

Why?


In thinking of ‘technology’; I realized that my generation like EVERY other generation is at an awesome day/time.

I will start and speak personally on my own behalf – Videos/pictures: Movie projectors/Slides which had to be sent away for processing! VHS, Betamax – Movies? You had to stick them in!

Do I ‘age’ myself? Not really! We all can say what has changed in our day/time. Trade used to be the exchange of goods. Money arose as a tender for goods and services.

Watch! Money is on the way out. What exactly: “So that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
Revelations 13:17

Digital input? Now it is ‘Money’ and when ‘Money’ ceases to be? At this point can you purchase or sell without money? Makes you think 🤔. There will unfortunately still be illegal tender, but will it all be along the lines of ‘criminality’?

Microchip implant (human)

  • A human microchip implant is typically an identifyingintegrated circuit device or RFID transponder encased in silicate glass and implanted in the body of a human being. …
  • The first experiments with a radio-frequency identification (RFID) implant were carried out in 1998 by the British scientist Kevin Warwick.

I in no way wish to speak of something that is not or will never be! The following link is simply a very distant glimpse into what is and will be… https://www.americanexpress.com/us/foreign-exchange/articles/international-trade-and-technology/

microchip is a small, electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder that is about the same size as a grain of rice. … The chip transmits the identification number to the scanner, which displays the number on the screen. The microchip itself is also called a transponder.

I was in the field of Medicine; in a trauma if there is no ‘awake’ individual to give a history: Allegies, Medications, PMHx. What would be the next best bet? Even if there were an individual available documented history is seamless! A history is key to care of the individual.

In our society today EZPass, Highway cameras, ability to track individuals. A credit history demonstrates transaction, time and location. Now, if stolen it is simple to state you had no access to the Materials utilized at the time of any event.

We are testing longevity and utilization of the microchip. They can easily break, fall off, or even the name or phone number can wearoff of the tag over time. The microchip is permanent and can’t be separated from the pet. If your dog or cat is lost or stolen, the chip and it’s registration is definitive proof of ownership.

An intense debate is under way over the benefits and drawbacks of human microchips. They’re already used to identify ranch animals and pets, but the practice of implanting chips in people is also on the rise. Those who embrace the idea say they see it as a way to take back control of their personal data.

A significant document is a consent form. Every chip inserted is at the approval of the individual into whom it is implanted. Just as you must be 18 and above to vote; an understanding of the process, you will be asked for consent for insertion.

bitcoin. The definition of bitcoin is a publicly-owned, digital form of currency that uses cryptography (information security algorithms) to securely send and receive payments. An example of bitcoin is the digital money that can be allocated using a cell phone to donate to an Internet site such as Wikileaks.

LP/SP – Records for music! Uhh, no one heard of digital?
http://www.solcatmusic.com/music-device-history/

Games- Tic Tac Toe, Crosswords, hopscotch… What do we have now? iPads, iPods…Where do I start?

I truly could go on for days! This is in MY time! How cool were Records, Casette tapes, CD’s, DVD’s?

I was ‘silly’ enough to think my kids would appreciate DVD’s after my ‘long’ time off after my accident, uhh! I was very, very WRONG…Digital makes the day!

This brings so much realization! ‘Gone’ for a ‘short’ period – I will agree, where I was in the coma ‘Time’ did not exist. I invite you all if anyone knows of ANYONE at all who has been or is in early recovery after a coma to describe ‘Time’ in the coma! Even we, are coat in a spiral of sun rises and sun sets, 7 day weeks (if a central authority added an 8th day, it would change everything MTWTFSaSu uhh! what would you call the 8th day of the week? How did Man come up with a 7 day week? Every thought of that?
Yes! A year is the time it takes for the planet Earth to circle the Sun once. A year is the orbital period of the Earth moving in its orbit around the Sun. Due to the Earth’s axial tilt, the course of ayear sees the passing of the seasons, marked by change in weather, the hours of daylight, and, consequently, vegetation and soil fertility.

More careful observations led to the geocentric model, in which the sun takes just over 365 days to move around the Earth once relative to the background stars. The length of the year was known to be about 365.25 days since the times of the ancient Egyptians. There are several ways to measure a year.

Yes! I could get all technical here. But, each day births a new chance for failure, disappointment or success and joy. What is your part in all of this/that?

You were born, you exist! Question: Why?

I KNOW we have touched on this many times in the past. WHY ARE YOU? Mind you, I did NOT ask HOW are you. I simply asked WHY you are. A VERY complex question! So, children? Why? Job? Why?

These are always in the back of our minds behind the “What do I have to do, cook, buy, eat, pee/poop…. TODAY?” Isn’t that the SAME question that you woke up with yesterday?

So very simply I ask YOU; “WHY are YOU?” What is your purpose in life?

Let go of thinking there is only one purpose for you and embrace the idea that our purpose in life is to love life fully by putting ourselves into our life! … To lead a purposeful life, follow your passions. When we live a passion-filled life we are living onpurpose, and that is the purpose of life???

In all, our purpose in life is to do everything to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). Matt Slick in What is the meaning and purpose of life? explains: In other words, our purpose is to praise God, worship Him, to proclaim His GREATNESS, and to accomplish His Will.

https://www.jackcanfield.com/blog/finding-life-purpose/

The primary way God speaks to us is through the Bible. This means that one of the first things you should do in your search for God’s purpose is to start digging into scripture. … God’s word brings light to paths that otherwise seem dark.

I am aware that this all seems driven to a point, it IS! Why, again I ask are YOU? Every situation and event has led you to where you are now! AND? What next?

So here it is brothers and sisters: The purpose of a huMan’s life. The purpose of a huMan’s life is to become the absolute strongest that they can be in all facets. To meet EVERY day fighting and becoming better in some way, shape, or form.

It goes on, I am aware that this is a distinct blip in the understanding of what is and what will be.

In a Nutshell. The four most relevant types of moneyare commodity money, fiat money, fiduciary money, and commercial bank money. Commodity money relies on intrinsically valuable commodities that act as a medium of exchange. Fiat money, on the other hand, gets its value from a government order.

Advance? Bitcoin, just as I in my day have seen significant shifts in technology the future moves toward digital. Bitcoin. The definition of bitcoin is a publicly-owned, digital form of currency that uses cryptography (information security algorithms) to securely send and receive payments. An example of bitcoin is the digital money that can be allocated using a cell phone to donate to an Internet site such as Wikileaks.

Your mind is a computer. Your brain is the hardware. Your mindware is the software. You have unconscious and conscious mindware. Mindware processes the world. It contains thousands of programs. Many are created in childhood and become self-fulfilling prophecies.

Your unconscious mind is the master. Unconscious mindware drives 95% of beliefs and behaviours. Unconscious mindware processes of all the information you receive. It selects what you consciously recognise, react to and processes.

11,000,000 bits/second enters your unconscious mind. 126 bits/second goes to your conscious mind for action. There are 3 types of programs which filter your reality.

Instincts – All humans share instincts, which have high priority over our perception and responses.

Preferences – We each define our own unique preferences for motivation, work style, communication, management and more.

Experimental – These programs filter our perceptions of our reality based on our learned/past focus and expectations.

We have the knowledge to shift our programs. When we shift our experimental programs, we can and so change our reality. We have the power to control our world, through our minds.

Here are 3 tips to shift your programs :

Focus on What you Want – The mind does not process negatives. :I can’t lose this deal” is “Lose this deal” to your unconscious mind. Say “I will win this deal”.

Shuffle the Deck – Your unconscious mind sees what it expects to see, based on patterns. Change the way information is presented to see new trends & opportunities.

Ask Questions – Statements focus our unconscious on the subject. Questions activate our conscious mind to explore new insights.

POSITIVE THINKING:


1. Don’t complicate life. We won’t be here forever. Once this day is over, it’s gone forever. Your time is too valuable to waste on nonsense.

2. No matter what knocks you down in life, get up and keep going. NEVER GIVE UP. Great blessings come as a result of great perseverance.

3. Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about your joys.

4. Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient, and the best things come to those who don’t give up.

5. Do not pray for an easy life; pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

6. Disappointments were not meant to destroy you. They were meant to strengthen you and give you fortitude to accomplish your God-given destiny.

7. We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but by appreciating what we do have.

8. Your child will follow your example, not your advice.

9. One day, you’ll be just a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

10. Associate yourself with people of good quality. For it is better to be alone than in bad company.

11. Don’t fear change. You may lose something good, but you may also gain something great.

12. When you love what you have, you have everything you need.

13. The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.

14. Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have – GRATITUDE.

15. Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you said it has left you.

16. When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power.

17. Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you are waiting.

18. Isn’t it ironic:
– We ignore those who adore us, but adore the ones that ignore us
– We love those who hurt us, but hurt the ones that love us.

19. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Every story has an end, but in life every end is just a new beginning.

20. You were born to win. Although to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.

21. Every day is a NEW beginning, take a deep breath and START AGAIN.

22. Know that you are loved. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are beautiful. You have purpose. You are a masterpiece.

23. Don’t compare your progress with that of others. We all need our own time to travel our own distance.

24. Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher.

25. Bad things happen everyday to everyone. The difference is in how people deal with it.

26. When you make a commitment, you build hope. When you keep it, you build trust.

27. Two things define you: Your PATIENCE when you have NOTHING, and your ATTITUDE when you have EVERYTHING.

28. Being honest may not get you a lot of FRIENDS but it will always get you the RIGHT ONES.

29. Working on yourself is the hardest part of life. Keep growing up, no matter where you are.

30. Be selective in your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right.

31. Keep people in your life who truly love you, motivate you and make you happy. If you know people who do none of these things, let them go.

32. Be happy not because everything is good, but because you can see the good side of everything.

33. OPTIMISM
NO ➔ Shortcuts
NO ➔ Quick fixes
NO ➔ Blaming others
NO ➔ I’ll do tomorrows
NO ➔ EXCUSES!!

34. Surround yourself with positive people who will support you when it rains, not just when it shines.

35. Being defeated is often a temporary condition; giving up is what makes it permanent.

Enjoy this journvey we called LIFE.

Be filled with The Spirit of God, Anen.

Give Thanks To The Lord: 19 Profound Reasons

 Mark Altrogge

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever (Psalm 118:1).

Though our nation celebrates Thanksgiving once a year, we who believe in Jesus Christ have reasons to give thanks every single hour of every day!

We should be the most thankful people on the face of the earth.

Here are 19 glorious, profound reasons to give thanks to the Lord every day.

#1 – Give Thanks To The Lord Because He’s Given Us The Greatest Gift

give thanks to the lord for he is good

“For God so loved the world, that he GAVE his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

For to us a child is born, to us a son is GIVEN; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). 

God has given us the greatest gift he could possibly give us – Jesus Christ, his own Son. No other gift could ever be more valuable or precious. And if God has given us the greatest gift, he will certainly not withhold lesser gifts.

Charles Spurgeon talked about a woman who realized that Jesus was the greatest gift of all:

I have heard of some good old woman in a cottage, who had nothing but a piece of bread and a little water. Lifting up her hands, she said as a blessing, ‘What! All this, and Christ too!

Most of us have seen movies like National Treasure or Indiana Jones (I know, I’m showing my age here) where people suddenly come into a room filled with treasures – mountains of gold coins and gold statues and treasure chests and great heaps of diamonds and jewels.

The scene that opens up before the characters takes their breath away.

We should give thanks to the Lord because we have something infinitely better in this life and the next: Christ is our treasure. And someday when we walk into heaven and we see the face of Jesus in all his incomprehensible glory we will fall on our faces and praise him forever. Christ is our treasure.

In Christ, we have eternal life. We have complete and total forgiveness of every one of our sins. We are now sons and daughters of God – God’s family. Even the angels aren’t sons and daughters.

In Christ, we have complete and total access to the very throne of God any time day or night. The Bible says we are joint-heirs with Christ – we share in Christ’s inheritance! In HIS rewards!

Here’s how Paul put it:

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ (Philippians 3:8).

Paul says, if I had all the riches in the world, if I had mansions and wealth and fame and every good thing this world could offer, it is all rubbish, it’s all garbage, compared to the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I give up everything for his sake – I’ve suffered the loss of all things.Report this ad

If you have believed in Jesus and called upon him to save you and be your Lord, then you are richer than Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerburg or the richest kings who ever lived.

#2 – Give Thanks To The Lord For The Undeserved Gift Of Salvation

A gift is something we don’t deserve or haven’t earned. God doesn’t owe us anything!

This is why we should constantly give thanks to the Lord. If we deserved or had earned our salvation there would be no reason for us to give thanks. We didn’t deserve to have God give us the gift of his Son. All we deserved was to be cast into hell forever for our rebellion and sins against a Holy God.

But God is so loving and wonderful and amazing, that he gave his Son to us while we were still sinners and had no interest in God or love for him.

…but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8)

Incredible! Before we had any interest in God or desire to please him, while we were still spitting in his face and breaking his commandments, while we were slaves of sin and dead in our sins, Christ died in our place to save us from the wrath of God which we did deserve.

Salvation is a gift from God.

Every day, we should give thanks to the Lord for saving us.

#3 – Give Thanks To The Lord For His Precious Word

give thanks to the lord verse

Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O LORD, God of hosts (Jeremiah 15:16)

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105).

What an incredible blessing! We have the very words of God himself, the fountain of all truth, wisdom, and revelation. In God’s word, he reveals himself, tells us what he is like, shares his very thoughts with us, counsels and guides us.

Apart from God’s word, we could not know about his holiness, love and his plan of salvation. Apart from God’s word we would not know about Jesus Christ or his sacrifice for us on the cross. We have God’s word. Millions don’t. We should be so thankful to the Lord for his precious word.

#4 – Give Thanks To The Lord For His Mercy, Love, and Faithfulness

God not only rescued us from our sins, but he actively loves us every single day

But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:21-13).

The Creator of the universe loves us! He pours out new and endless mercies every morning. He is faithful to us. He never takes his eyes from us. He is faithful to bless and guide and help and strengthen us. His love is steadfast. He never takes a break from loving us. Never turns away from us.Report this ad

This gives us incredible hope and every reason to praise and give thanks to the Lord.

#5 – Give Thanks To The Lord That Nothing Will Ever Separate Us From Him

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:35-39). 

Nothing will ever separate us from the love of our God. When my mother got Alzheimer’s disease, she said, “I hope I never forget Jesus and I hope I never forget my family.” I said, “Mom, even if you forget Jesus, he will never forget you. And even if you forget us we will never forget you.”

Nothing – nothing will ever be able to separate us from God’s love in Christ. What a gift! What a reason to give thanks to the Lord!

#6 – Give Thanks To The Lord That Someday We’ll See Him Face To Face

o give thanks to the lord

Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is (1 John 3:2)

Jesus’ glory, beauty, and majesty are infinite. He is so beautiful that in Isaiah 6 the Seraphim, the highest angels in heaven, who had never sinned, had to cover their faces. They could not look upon the holiness and glory of God.

Yet we will someday look upon Jesus face to face, be amazed and astounded and give him glory forever and ever.

What a compelling reason to give thanks to the Lord!

#7 – Give Thanks To The Lord For Making Us Like Christ

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18). 

As we behold Christ’s glory in his word and worship and prayer, God is transforming his children day by day into the likeness of Jesus. From one degree of glory to another. And someday we will be completely transformed into Christ’s likeness.Report this ad

We won’t be gods, but we will be like him, clothed in his glory. This is absolutely staggering! Someday, we will be totally and completely conformed to the image of Jesus!

#8 – Give Thanks To The Lord That He’ll Fulfill His Plans For Us

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). 

The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands (Psalm 138:8).

You may not know what God’s plans and purposes for your life are. But we don’t have to know because God does. And he has plans and purposes for every single one of his children. Before the foundation of the world he created good works for us to walk in.

Nothing can stop God from fulfilling his plans for our lives. We should thank God that he will fulfill his every purpose for us.

Isn’t that good news? Let’s give thanks to the Lord for fulfilling his good and perfect plans for us.

#9 – Give Thanks To The Lord For His Abundant Goodness

Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind! (Psalm 31:19)Report this ad

God doesn’t have just a little bit of goodness stored up for us. He has ABUNDANT goodness stored up. He has bags and bags of grace stored up, just waiting to pour out on us.

We can thank our Father for the abundant goodness he has poured out on us already, and look forward to a future full of blessings in heaven.

#10 – Give Thanks To The Lord For His Daily Provision

give thanks

Give us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6:11).

In the “Lord’s Prayer” Jesus tells us to ask our heavenly Father to provide for us. Most of us in this nation have food on our tables every day. Every meal is a gift from God.

Let’s constantly give thanks to the Lord for our jobs and our income and the abundance of food and provision he has lavished on us.

#11 – Give Thanks To The Lord For His Constant Protection

The angel of the LORD encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! (Psalm 34:7-8)Report this ad

Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep (Psalm 121:4).

God never takes his eyes off us. He watches over his children day and night. Let’s thank God for his daily protection, for the thousands of trips and drives God has protected you on. For protecting us every night as we sleep.

Let us thank God for protecting us from every attack of the evil one, and for delivering us from sin and temptation.

#12 – Give Thanks To The Lord For His Constant Guidance

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you (Psalm 32:8).

What an incredible promise! God himself promises to counsel and teach us. The Creator of the Universe is personally guiding each one of his children. He promises that if we ask him for wisdom he will give it to us. Jesus is our good shepherd who leads us beside still waters.

Are you unsure about what to do in your life? Are you facing baffling circumstances? Ask God for wisdom and guidance. He’s waiting to give it to you. And thank him that he has promised to give us wisdom, to instruct and show us the way to go.

#13 – Give Thanks To The Lord That He Hears Our Prayers

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you (Matthew 7:7)

I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears (Psalm 34:4)

God has promised to answer the prayers of his children. Again and again, he encourages us to ask him for his help and grace and strength and provision. He doesn’t tell us to ask in vain. He tells us to ask because he intends to answer.

We should constantly give thanks to God for hearing and answering our prayers.

#14 – Give Thanks To The Lord For Our Families And Friends

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward (Psalm 127:3)

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity (Proverbs 17:17).

Our families and friends are wonderful gifts from the Lord. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to thank God for the gifts of your children, your parents, your brothers and sisters, and your friends.

#15 – Give Thanks To The Lord For Every Good Gift

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change (James 1:17). 

For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? (1 Corinthians 4:7)Report this ad

Every good thing we have is a gift from God. Our talents, our health, our intelligence, our jobs, our homes. Our spiritual gifts. Just look around your living room or den. Look around next time you go shopping. Our lives are filled with gifts from God. Let’s thank him for his generosity.

#16 – Give Thanks To The Lord For Health and Strength

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul (3 John 1:2)

What a blessing good health is! We can give thanks for our eyesight and hearing, our taste, touch and sense of smell. We can thank God for every breath and beat of our hearts. Our health is a gift from God.

And for those of us who are suffering, as hard as that is to understand, we can still thank God that someday we will have new bodies free from all pain and sickness.

#17 – Give Thanks To The Lord That He Causes All Things To Work For Our Good

give thanks god

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,h for those who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).

Again, we may not understand it, but God causes ALL THINGS – good and bad – all things – to work together for our ultimate good. And someday we will see how. But for now, giving thanks in faith gives glory to God.

When we get to heaven, we’ll see many of the ways that God worked things together for our good and his glory. But while we’re on this earth, we express faith in him by giving thanks for his sovereignty.

#18 – Give Thanks To The Lord For His Promises To Our Children

The children of your servants shall dwell secure; their offspring shall be established before you (Psalm 102:28). 

“And as for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD: “My Spirit that is upon you, and my words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your offspring, or out of the mouth of your children’s offspring,” says the LORD, “from this time forth and forevermore.” (Isaiah 59:21)

There are many many promises like these in God’s word. It is God’s will to save and bless our children.

Let’s continually give thanks to the Lord for his promises to work in our kids and grandchildren. If God wasn’t the one responsible for saving our children, how could we have any peace?Report this ad

#19 – We Should Give Thanks To The Lord Because It Honors Him

The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me (Psalm 50:23). 

Every believer’s greatest desire deep down is to glorify God. Most of us think that to glorify God we have to do something great. But the simple act of giving God thanks brings him glory. Giving thanks is an act of faith. We believe that every gift comes from God and we have faith in his promises to continue to give us every good gift.

We have ALL we need, Amen.


They cried unto Thee O God, Crewtor of all seen and unseen. Father, You Alone hear our cries and You ALONE in Your Essence deliver, Amen. We Your children trust in You.

Father, You are our beginning and our end, Amen. By Your grace we are not confounded, Amen.

Psalm 22:5

God is always quick to hear our cries. He sees us as his own – never forget that. So, when you find yourself in distress, don’t turn to man or material things. Turn your gaze to Jesus and ask God to help you in your time of need. He will always come to your rescue, no matter what.

Dear God, I thank You that you Hear me when I call, or whenever I am in distress. Lord, I ask that whenever I am waiting on You, may I never forget Your faithfulness. Because You are always swift to be faithful, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

We ARE adopted into The Family…Glory!


Go forth in AWESOMENESS, cloaked in Love and peace for victory, Amen.


Has anyone seen God’s biceps?

God fights all your battles for you if you step aside.

Supernatural are the ‘forces’/essences that God Created, Amen.

Su·per·nat·u·ral/ˌso͞opərˈnaCH(ə)rəl/adjective

  1. (Of a manifestation or event) Attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature. “A supernatural being” Similar: Paranormal, psychic, magic, magical, occult, mystic, mystical, miraculous, superhuman, supernormal, hypernormal, extramundane, inexplicable, uncanny, unaccountable, unbelievable, nonrational, weird, mysterious, arcane, ghostly, phantom, spectral, otherworldly, unearthly, unnatural, unreal, fabulous, spooky. Opposite: Natural, normal

noun

  1. Manifestations or events considered to be of supernatural origin, such as ghosts.

🤔 Mind you, I came up with none of these terms and/or descriptions: Webster/Miriam/Encyclopedic in Nature. So, the undefinable, inexplicable, wonderfilled events are from?

“Other Worldly”? What world? What existence? We get too deep in this morass of fact or should I say the inexplicable. So, where from? Biceps? So ‘Natural’!

Right quick: “Moses said, “Please show me Your glory.” 🤔 Someone who spoke with God “Face to face” had not seen God’s glory?

And God Said, “I will make all My Goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you My name ‘The LORD.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. 

But,” God said, “you cannot see My face, for man shall not see Me and live.” The Biceps? Apparently non-existent!

And The LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by Me where you shall stand on the rock, and while My glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Uhh🤔 Biceps pass by? How about a “Six pack”?

Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My Essence at The Rear, but my Face shall not be seen.”

Have you attempted to gaze at the Sun God Created? Uhh🤔 The damage a speck of sand on the beach of our existence. We even are as grains of sand on God’s beach! God’s World? Indescribable!

It is said by Scientists (experts at calculation), if you assume a grain of sand has an average size and you calculate how many grains are in a teaspoon and then multiply by all the beaches and deserts in the world, the Earth has roughly (and we’re speaking very roughly here) 7.5 x 1018 grains of sand, or seven quintillion, five hundred quadrillion grains

Humbling fact. Multiverse is the concept that there are more than one Universes. … An Omniverse is a set of all Universes. Thus, the Omniverse may only include our Universe, or if there is indeed a Multiverse, it would include those as well.

Omniverse theory: The model of the entire existence. Also known as the Theory of Literally Everything. … A multiverse hypothesis might be seen as complementary to the Theory of Everything – together, they could explain both the inside and the outside of the universe. The Omniverse Theory has no such ambitions.

So, we realize (hopefully) to steer clear of the concept of Biceps. Even angel’s in their supernatural form are without biceps!

An·gel/ˈānjəl/ noun

  1. A spiritual being believed to act as an attendant, agent, or messenger of God, conventionally represented in human form with wings and a long robe. “God sent an angel to talk to Gideon” Similar: messenger of God, divine/heavenly messenger, divine being, spirit. Opposite: Devil.
  2. A person of exemplary conduct or virtue.”I know I’m no angel

So, again What Caused these things to be? Makes you think 🤔 , no?

Just wanted to lay a concept to ponder on your Spirit. Have a blessed day.
