Seeking the Face of God

May 25, 2018

When we seek God’s Face, we behold beauty and glory,

which takes us beyond the tallest building story.

Walking, running, and yielding toward God’s way

on the straight and narrow path we will stay.

A path full of love, joy, peace, and blessings,

if we are faithful to trust God through our testings.

O God, faithful and true,

thanks for leading and guiding us always to you.

Stretching Forth His Hand

April 20, 2018

God is seeking and stretching forth His hand of blessings to those who are sincere about Him (those who are 100% committed to Him – who are steadfast in their faith).

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch, as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 15:58)

Those who are established and firmly settled, God will:

1.             Deliver them from all their troubles;

2.             Bless them beyond measure to be a blessing to others;

3.             Answer their prayers; and

4.             Take them to higher spiritual heights through greater wisdom and revelation.

God is calling you to enter into His kingdom today.

Be sure to answer the call,

if you don’t tomorrow you will fall.

Seek God early while He may be found,

and the benefits of love, joy, and peace will abound.

So many people sit in churches and hear the message through God’s called and  appointed  messengers, but do not apply the principles and corrective measures in their lives.

“And you treated as nothing all my counsel and would accept none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic—When your panic comes as a storm and desolation and your calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.  Then will they call upon me (Wisdom) but I will not answer; they will seek me early and diligently but they will not find me.” (Proverbs 1:24-28)

Some people go to church for the wrong motive – for example, to find a husband or wife with no interest and no respect for the Word of God.  They do not have a “hearing ear”.

“Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord, would accept none of my counsel, and despised all my reproof.  Therefore, shall they eat of the fruit of their own way and be satiated with their own devices.  For the backsliding of the simple shall slay them, and the careless ease of (self-confident) fools shall destroy them.  But whoso hearkens to me (Wisdom) shall dwell securely and in confident trust and shall be quiet, without fear or dread of evil.” (Proverbs 1:29-33)

The consequence of a non-hearing ear is that you will enter into a backslidden position and remain there until you decide to hearken to Wisdom.  Wisdom will protect you and guide you into a life of abundant love, joy, and peace.

WISDOM FORMULAKnowing the Word of God + Understanding the Word of God + Applying the Word of God = Wisdom

Listen to God and heed His Word.  Reverently honour and Worship Him, for this will save your life from eternal destruction, and keep you on the straight and narrow road that leads to an abundant life.

GOD’S PAVILION

In God’s pavilion He meets your every need.

If you will run to Him and make Him your Rock of Refuge with speed.

He knows your very heart and mind.

He is glorified when you open it and are kind.

Trust in Him with all your heart and He won’t lead you astray.

He will lead and guide you along the righteous way.

He is always there,

So don’t despair.

Just give Jesus your all, and know that you are in the Best of care.

The Door of Blessings

August 4, 2017

God gives us doors, but they can only be opened when we meet the conditions (requirements) that God has set.

The Door of Blessings is opened when you meet the following requirements:

1.  Live a Holy Life by walking in the will and plan of God, rather than the ideals, attitudes, and customs of the world; and rather than the advice and purposes of sinners.

2. You walk in the will and plan of God by using the R-Reading, S-Studying, and M-Meditating method.  That is, Read, Study, and Meditate on the Word of God.

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”  (Psalm 1:2)

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”  (Joshua 1:8)

3.  When you tithe unto God you open the Door of blessings because God says in Malachi 3:10-11 “Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.  And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts.”

God will rebuke the devourer (things that eat up your money).  For example, your car being constantly in need of repair.  The harvest you are reaping through tithing will not be premature, but an ON-TIME HARVEST.  Whatever you need, God will provide it when you need it.  He will provide more than you need.

And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 4:19)

Trust and depend on God for ALL YOU NEEDS, rather than the world system; rather than man.

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.  In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.  Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.”  (Proverbs 3:5-7)

 “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.  Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

They also do no iniquity: they walk in his way.  Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.  O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!  Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.  I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

I will keep thy statutes . . .”  (Psalm 119:1-8)

 TRUSTING IN THE LORD

 

But trust in and lean on the Lord without wavering and you won’t slide.

Trusting in self and relying on your own physical strength is an expression of pride.

 

Acknowledge God in all your ways, and from his thoughts and ways you will never part.

But if you decide to go your own way from your God-given purposes you will never start.

 

Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

And you will experience love, joy, and peace during the day and at night.

 

Honor and respect God in thought, word, and deed through love,

And you will ascend to higher spiritual heights like a dove.

 

Remember to put God first and not last,

Then you will experience joy unspeakable joy,

And a peace that surpasses understanding,

and a love for others that cannot be outcast.

Blessed to Be a Blessing

September 26, 2012

God blesses us with joy and strength and peace.

When we come into His presence, we get a release of stress, worry, doubt and discouragement.

Through His Word we receive an abundance of encouragement.

God gives us our heart’s desire when we trust and rely on Him.

Being confidently assured that He is there to see us through.

In God’s presence there is strength, joy, and peace;

Awaiting everyone, even those who feel the least.

In God’s presence He leads and guides us to spiritual heights along the path of righteousness.

Where our joy is filled to capacity.

If we only take the time to enter into your presence without audacity.
