“…leave the Egypt…” (and other true quotes)

“If we would follow the
Lord wholly, we must
go right away into the
wilderness of separation,
and leave the Egypt of the
carnal world behind us.
We must leave its maxims,
its pleasures, and its
religion too, and go
far away to the place
where the Lord calls
His sanctified ones.”

~C.H. Spurgeon


**”You can do more than pray
after you have prayed, but
you cannot do more than
pray until you have prayed.”

**”In prayer it is better to have
a heart without words than
words without a heart.”


**”Prayers and Praises
go in pairs,
They hath praises who
hath prayers.”


**”A Bible that’s falling apart
is usually owned by
someone who isn’t.”


**”There’s a big difference
between the books that men
make and the Book that
makes men”


Shared from Refining Truth: Bill Hitchcock

“That’s what the devil wants you to do.”


Another great word from Bill Hitchcock and Refining Truth.


“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Fear and timidity. We all have experienced it. Some live in a constant state of it. Realize that this condition is not of God. But before we move forward with expanding and expounding upon the verse, let’s first break it down into its barebones components.

“Spirit”. Spirit from the Greek word, “pneuma”. Strong’s Lexicon defines pneuma as, the “vital principal by which the body is animated”. The “simple essence, devoid of all or at least all grosser matter”. The “disposition or influence which fills and governs the soul”

“Fear”. Fear, from the Greek word “deilia” meaning timid, fearful.

“But of power”. Power, from the word the Greek word, “dynamis” meaning moral power, strength and excellence of…

“Nothing will I fear…”

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105

I love this version with the children singing. We must teach our children from day one Who lights our “path”. May you have this verse singing on your hearts today with thanksgiving to our heavenly Father that lights our path in a dark world! HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT, TOO! Be ready to share that special enthusiasm only He can put on our hearts!

Thanksgiving is a way of life for God’s children

Colossians 2:6,7

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.


Jennie Augusta Brownscombe - Detail image of The First Thanksgiving - 1914Jennie Augusta Brownscombe – Detail image of The First Thanksgiving – 1914


Our Father in Heaven ordained thanksgiving as a way of life for us, our loving response to Him for sending His Son to save us, and for His daily love and care for us.


1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Psalm 107:22

22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

Hebrews 13:15

15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

Gods people: Stiffnecked, Rebellious or ?

Amen and amen.


In the book of Exodus we find the Lord refers to the Hebrews as Stiffnecked,  this is translated several ways:

Stiffnecked :
impossible to deal with. very stubborn [a stiff-necked people]. oh! what a stubborn, hard-headed people! they are an obstinate people. they are a strong-willed people.  (stiffnecked, obstinate people); unbelievably stubborn.

Sounds like the Church today, the people are ready to split off and go their separate ways because of the color of the carpet, the removal of the back row of seats,  a word spoken in anger or rebuke. …they will not accept correction, chastisement. Refusing to submit themselves to the Word or Will of God.

in Deuteronomy the Lord refers to them as Rebellious and this is translated :

Rebellious :
you have refused to obey the Lord. refused to obey [rebelled against] ” And what did you do? You rebelled. Rebelled against the clear orders of…

“Thank you, Father!”

It use to feel awkward when I did something for someone and they thanked me. As a born again believer I now know why. I now know the thanks goes to God. After all isn’t He Who allowed me to have the means to do that thing? Isn’t He the One that gave me the words to encourage some one?  Just another way He allows us to witness to His goodness…certainly not our goodness. We are nothing-ABSOLUTELY-nothing with out Him.

2 Corinthians 2:14

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.




“Praise God for His excellency.”

“He dwelleth on high,  He humbleth, He raiseth, He lifteth , He maketh and so so many other things does The Lord our God do! Only He is able!

Psalm 113

113 Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord‘s name is to be praised.

The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.

Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,

Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.

“How good it is to trust in God.”

Let “us” now say…


118 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.

11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me.

14 The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

18 The Lord hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord:

20 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.

21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.

22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

23 This is the Lord‘s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

27 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.

29 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
