HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy, though despised and poor.
Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.
Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.
As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
All their foes they boldly dare.
~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
… He did just that!!! JESUS!!!
The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
GOD IS NOT A LIAR ❤️❤️❤️
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
YESSSSSS! I needed this reminder this a.m.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY KNOWING AND BEING THANKFUL TO KNOW THAT WE ARE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WITHOUT HIM AND HIS DISCIPLINE AND LOVE!
… isn’t just simply one who needs stuff!
A needy person can have EVERYTHING the world has to offer but is truly in need of The Messiah ❤️❤️❤️
I have been mad at God.
Blaming Him for all my problems.
Shaking my fist at the sky.
Calling Him names.
THANK GOD HE WOKE ME UP AND SHOWED ME HE WASN’T TO BLAME -HE WAS THERE TO SEE ME THROUGH!
THANK GOD FOR HIS GRACE.
Grace is when God gives us what we don’t deserve.
Mercy is when God doesn’t give us what we do deserve.
The following verse is the first verse from God’s Word that the Good Lord used to drop the veil from in front of my eyes and from over my heart. This verse began to open up the Truth(s) of God and the lie(s) of Roman Catholicism to me.
It is a great verse to keep us on track with any false doctrines, religion or acts of religion.
JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY!
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
… Jesus was not given gifts when He was born-He was given gifts when He was a young child in a house..
The Bible says so:
“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.”
There is a reason our God had it written in the Bible this way- we should not change-take away from the words-His Word.
The Bible says so:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
