The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

John 14:27-28

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really love Me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, who is greater than I am.”
John 14:27-28 (NLT)

God’s Temple


The Prayer Of Jabez

“Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me.”
1 Chronicles 4:10 (NASB)

For Me

Under the Eastern sky,
Amid a rabble’s cry,
A man went forth to die
For me.
Thorn-crowned His blessed head,
Blood-stained His every tread;
Cross-laden, on He sped
For me.
Pierced glow His hands and feet,
Three hours o’er Him beat
Fierce rays of noontide heat
For me.
Thus wert Thou made all mine;
Lord, make me wholly Thine;
Grant grace and strength divine
To me.
In thought, and word, and deed
Thy will to do. Oh, lead
My soul, e’en though it bleed,
To Thee.

A Wise Heart

“Behold, I have done according to your words. Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart.” 1 Kings 3:12a (NASB)
It has been said that the wisest man in the world is the man who knows he doesn’t know.
In the midst of trials how often we say, “If only I knew what to do”; or we may say, “I don’t know which way to turn or what to do.”
God has promised to give us His wisdom. “If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [who gives] to every one liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him” (Amplified). . .
Not only are we to ask God for wisdom but we are to ask in faith. Someone has said, “Doubt is a nonconductor of grace.”
We are not to be double-minded, wanting partly our way and partly God’s way.
As we ask God and ask in faith, God has promised to give liberally. We are to ask for wisdom to face serenely the trials of today, unwaveringly trusting in Him. We are to ask for wisdom to meet each trial of life and to face it triumphantly.

Anger Control

Anger can become a doorway through which we walk into sinful behavior. It can create bad attitudes, bitterness, a spirit of vengeance, hatred, and other diseases of the spirit.
Our lives have profound effects upon the lives of others. Our words—what we say and the way we say them—can bless or curse the life of another person. Even the way we express our justified anger can be either positive or negative, righteous or sinful.

Something To Remember

Always remember: Treat others with the mercy you desire God to extend to you.

The Love of God Is An Active Love

“But whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.” 1 John 2:5-6 (NASB)
The “love of God” is much more than mere feeling or emotionalism; it is an active, giving love. For that love to become mature or “perfected” in someone requires a life of active, faithful obedience to Christ. This is what the term “walk” implies. It covers all our activities at home, at work, and at leisure. It challenges us to ask ourselves, “Do people see my everyday conduct as a witness to Christ’s message of salvation and His power to change lives?”

Morning Is Near — Helen Steiner Rice

Nothing in life can defeat me,
For as long as this knowledge
I can suffer whatever is happening,
For I know God will break
all the chains
That are binding me tight
in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear. . .
For there is no night
with dawning,
And I know that my morning is near.
Helen Steiner Rice
