~ Today’s heart felt question (s) ~

Today as the fourth of July is celebrated in our nation this verse from God’s Written Word jumped out at me…

 

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

 

*Then this question quickly followed:

“Will this nation of America EVER completely humble itself~pray~ seek God’s face~ and turn from their wicked ways?”

I do not know the answer to that question.  I do know many  individuals that do believe in God~do humble themselves~do pray~do seek God’s face~and do turn from their wicked ways.

If we as a nation are not listening to what the Good Lord says in 2 Chronicles 7:14 and obeying Him my next question is:

“How are we any better than any other nations?”

Is this verse of scripture for today, also? Or our we actually God’s “nation” as individuals joined together by the Blood of Jesus?

I would love to hear what anyone has to say ~

*Rejoice evermore~

When we are in difficult trials or if people have mistreated us because of our faith, we have a choice: either we can focus on our trials and lapse into self-pity. Or we can set our minds on the things above, where Christ is at the right hand of God, where our life is hidden in Him (Col. 3:1-4), and rejoice.

 

*Pray without ceasing~

Recognize your need to depend on the Lord in every situation. Prayer is the language of trusting in the Lord~send up short prayers whenever you can~spend time in God’s word and prayer each morning. 

*God commands us to give thanks in everything~

Giving thanks in every situation does not mean that we must be happy with every situation or resigned to accept matters without praying and working for change~we don’t need to feel thankful before we give thanks. When God takes us through hard trials, we don’t feel thankful. But by faith we can say, “Lord, I trust that You are good and that You know what You’re doing in this difficult situation. I submit to Your sovereign hand and purpose, knowing that You will work it together for my good.” So, like rejoicing always, giving thanks in everything is often a choice to believe God in difficult circumstances.

A friend of mine said these reassuring words to me when I FELT it would be easier on my whole family and ME if I just went back to practicing cahtolicism AFTER The Good Lord had told me “no”~ this friend said “FAITH IS NOT BASED ON FEELINGS~GOD TOOK YOU OUT`TRUST HIM~DO NOT BASE YOUR DECISION ON HOW you “FEEL”! Boy was he so right!!! PRAISE GOD!!!~Elizabeth

 

 

“Therefore let us not sleep…”

1 Thessalonians 5

( 1 On Christ’s second coming. 6 Divers precepts. 23 Conclusion. )

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

16 Rejoice evermore.

17 Pray without ceasing.

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

19 Quench not the Spirit.

20 Despise not prophesyings.

21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

25 Brethren, pray for us.

26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.

27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.

28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

And AMEN!
