I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. Psalm 16:7-9.
PRAISE GOD, HE IS MY ROCK OF SALVATION! I am not just quoting this Psalm but rather declaring and confessing the words which are God inspired. I fear God and rebuke satan in the name of Jesus. The name above ALL names. He has given us the VICTORY to be conquerors over the powers of darkness. GLORY TO THE LAMB! Let us walk in humbleness and being steadfast in faith and in trust of God who leads His children in all truth. Amen!
Reaching out to a world lost in sin, joining together to be His hand extended is a profitable endeavor and worth far more than all the riches of this world. Understanding the words of Jesus: "When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand." The time is closing in!
There is never a disappointment with the Lord, if we expect the answer from Him alone. Be encouraged! Look up into His Holy face and see the radiance of everlasting glory in His eyes; the heavenly glow of Godly Love; the unspeakable Beauty of His appearance. He is the Conqueror, the Overcomer, the Restorer, the Healer, the Master of All, the Son of God, the Alpha and Omega, the soon coming King and more. PRAISE GOD!
But without FAITH it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
FAITH in who? or in what? Jesus says: "HAVE FAITH IN GOD".
Many people even Christians, when mentioning faith... they leave it up in the "air" to what faith should be connected to. Faith in themselves? Faith in the situation? The such are confused and have forgotten what Jesus says about having FAITH! They may "think" things will work out using the wrong kind "secular" faith, instead FAITH in GOD, and they don't even recognize the direction they're walking into. This is the biggest trap of the devil.
Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when He cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that He shall gird Himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. Luke 12:37
There are some amongst us who like the benefits and blessings of the Cross of Christ and His suffering, but don't want to crucify their own "old flesh"; the sinful nature one still carries with him. The such like to get the blessings and stay in their comfort zone, continuing in their old lifestyle, sin, habits etc. This will never work, since the flesh and the Spirit are enemies of each other. The idea of transformed lives, through holiness and following Christ in self denial, goes against the flesh and oneself. Creating a new type of Christianity; combining flesh and Spirit presents a pitfall. It can be compared with a broken or damaged vessel.
What we will see next is the blind leading the lame in their deception, both tumbling down in the pit of spiritual disaster.
Be watchful that you don't miss the Crown of Life.
Jesus answered: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:34-36
We are not set free to follow the lust of the flesh, but to serve God and love Him with all our heart, all our understanding and all that is within us. Some that I know use this freedom in a abusive manner, for their own good and earthly pleasure.
Following one's own heart is not the freedom Christ refers to, rather it shows bondage to the flesh.
Walk carefully so you won't miss the "crown". Deny the world and gain heaven, for this is what the Father has in mind for His children. Amen! Be blessed as you obey His word.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
Making the TRUTH of God's Words visible in your life, you have to ACT upon it by faith in God. Read this Scripture verse again slowly, let it to sink in, grab it, hold on and check your heart what you "hoped for" and believe that the evidence will become visible, that which you cannot see yet. IT WILL APPEAR, according to God's word!
Just think how blessed you are to know the Lord and being able to walk with Him in good and bad times. To tell Him what is on your heart and how you love Him. Jesus will listen to all you have to say and then He will begin to speak to you; through His word, in your heart, a vision, a dream or a song which pops up in your heart.
Our Lord is AWESOMELY WONDERFUL and WONDERFULLY AWESOME!
When we glorify the Lord, He immediately responds with giving us overwhelming joy in our heart... unspeakable and full of glory. He is ALIVE!
Let you LIGHT so shine before man!
In the love of Christ,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman.
