I find it interesting that the lion wants to stay where it finds love in relationship rather than step out into the world all alone. As you know, Sam, a person is never alone because Jesus is always with us as His people of faith!!! Oh that just makes me smile!!! As you also know, Sam, Father created us for relationship!!! I am reminded that it is always good news wherever He opens and closes doors in our lives to put us in the divine place for us to be together with divine purpose with Him working in us as His people of faith!!! 🙂 Lots to ponder about this video!!! I am reminded of this song here about being a new creation in faith in Jesus and the specialness of His love:

Lured by Light

Our defense is to stay close to Jesus and pray, pray, pray always!!! I like this song here about protection found in Jesus

Courage to Trust

Sam Samy shares this video here and ladies here with me, Father speaks to my heart that when your man is seeking Jesus and is willing to do battle in partnership with Him to protect you and your family, let him do so, trusting Jesus is guiding him and praise him for it!!!
 
Prince and Princess
 
His bravery and faithfulness speaks powerfully of God’s love and power flowing through him for you!!! It is good when the enemy who hunts us down to destroy us is put in his place!!! Be courageous in trusting Jesus to guide your man courageously!!! This song here speaks to how Jesus made men to be courageous!!! (Us, courageous in faith, too!!!)
 
Father’s promise: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid and do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will go with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
 
Trusting Jesus courageously with you!!! 🙂 His promise from Himself to us each is “never will I leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:9
 
Jesus always brings the victory when we follow His lead!!?

The Covenant of Peace

New day greetings, dear family of faith!!! As I reflect upon Father’s heart to me today, I am reminded by the Holy Spirit of our Father’s Word about His covenant of peace that is ours through our faith in Christ Jesus:

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed.” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.”

Isaiah 54:10

This is a promise of the Old Testament that was the forerunner to the covenant of peace or grace that was fulfilled in Christ Jesus going to the cross so that all who believe in Him can have reconciliation with our holy God who has no part of sin. However, through Christ as a substitute sacrifice in the place of all humankind, our wages for sin that is death was paid in full by Jesus who took our penalty for sin brought on to us by the devil in the Garden of Eden as talked about in the book of Genesis. At that point in time, our Father promised a Savior to us with these strong words to the devil/serpent who tempted Adam and Eve to sin and question the truth and faithfulness of God to us as His people:

“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head and you will strike his heel.”

Genesis 3:15

There are 300 Biblical prophecies in the Old Testament written over thousands of years that pointed the way to the coming of the Savior as God promised in the Garden of Eden and history shows that Jesus Christ fulfilled every single one of them as God became a man and went to the cross in our place out of His compassion for us and His desire for us to have peace with Him and be His kingdom family forever!!! His Word says:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

 Our Father’s Word tells us that the test of a true prophet is that what they prophecy comes true and one of the Old Testament prophets that spoke of the Jesus being born as God is here:

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Isaiah 9:6

Many who watched for the coming of the Savior recognized Jesus by what was happening in the reality of life before them that was prophesied about the promised Messiah or Savior. One such man was Simeon who is described in Luke 2 as a “righteous and devout man looking for the consolation of Israel and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, “Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, “According to Your word; For my eyes have seen Your salvation, Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, “A LIGHT OF REVELATION TO THE GENTILES, And the glory of Your people Israel.”

John the Baptist, a cousin in the family of line to Jesus who was said to be a forerunner telling the world of the coming of the Messiah recognized Jesus as the Messiah when he baptized Him and he said of Jesus:

“Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, “A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.” I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel. Then John gave this testimony: “I see the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, “The man on whom you see the Sprit come down and remain is the one who will baptist with the Holy Spirit.” I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”

John 1:29-34

Many saw Jesus go to the cross, be buried and walking among them in resurrected life along with many other infallible proofs of His resurrection. His body has never been found dead as He said would happen and was prophesized in Isaiah 53. Jesus told the religious leaders wanting to destroy Him that if they destroyed His temple (His body) that He would raise it up again in three days and that He did!!! Many have since then been moved and anointed by the Holy Spirit to share His teachings, one of which was His disciple John who wrote the last book of the Bible called Revelation. In the last chapter of the book, there is great warning that nobody should ever write what is contrary to the Book of Revelation that speaks of Jesus as our Savior from sin and death and that through Him, we have reconciliation and peace with God and forever life in His kingdom as His people of faith. Through faith we are the children of God as this song says here!!! Therefore, whenever people since that time write or tell of God, perhaps claiming to be modern-day prophets, it is important that they meet the tests of a true prophet:

  • What they prophecy comes true. (Deuteronomy 18;20-21)
  • You will know them by their fruit. (Matthew 7:16-20) What they share is not contrary to our Father’s covenant of peace in Christ Jesus. If someone says Jesus was not sufficient as a sacrifice for our sins and that we must work our way into heaven and God’s acceptance, turn around and run the other way for there are false prophets in the world and much of Jesus’ ministry on earth was in warning about them when He walked the earth:

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”  

(Matthew 7:15)

For example: since Jesus’ time, here are a couple of men who have called themselves prophets and a link to some questions about their teachings compared to the teachings of Christ and God’s covenant of peace that He said would never be removed:

Mohammad’s teachings compared to Christ’s:

http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/articles/jesus-muhammad.aspx

Joseph Smith’s teachings compared to Christ’s:

https://www.namb.net/apologetics/comparison-chart-mormonism-and-christianity

These things are important to ponder now as opposed to waiting until too late for they could be the difference between life and death, and the difference between what is of this world and of heaven, the kingdom of God. Everyone has their own choice, but as for me,  I’m a gal convinced of Jesus as He has said of Himself in what is recorded of His teachings:

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

God promised a covenant of peace and freedom from the Old Testament Law. He is our Savior – our salvation in Christ Jesus to all who believe in Him:

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

John 8:36

As King David wrote in the Psalms thousands of years ago:

“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.”

Psalm 68:19

When considering all the prophets…considering their teaching and the consistency with the Bible that was written over thousands of years, by many different authors on several different continents, but all is consistent in telling one story – the redemption of humankind from the wages of their sin into a peaceful reconciled forever love relationship with our holy righteous God by God Himself as our Father and Savior. Through faith in Him, we are the children of God. Oh that all just makes me smile and celebrating being set free forever by Jesus’ unfailing, unconditional love!!! His promise to us is “never will I leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation–if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven and of which, I, Paul, (Apostle Paul) have become a servant.”

Colossians 1:21-23

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”

Romans 8:1

Looking Up

New day greetings, precious saints of faith!!! Today as I turn to Father’s Word, I am moved in gratitude that it is available on our mobile phones these days (got the app?) and the holy book (the Bible) can also be carried along with us in all of life!!! It is God’s love letter to us and Father says this about it:

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”

2 Timothy 3:16

Here is a song that speaks of the blessings of God’s Word to us as His beloved people of faith:

https://g.co/kgs/0W1WNN

Oh nothing blesses my heart more than the voice of my Father!!! I need Him always with me as shared live here and He always is with us dear ones of faith!!! Thru faith, we are forever sealed to Him and nothing can snatch us from His love!!! His promise to us is “never will I leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) As we draw close to Him, He is always there for us and we can approach His throne of grace with confidence to find mercy and grace to help us in our times of need. Now how awesome is He!!! Oh let us not miss out on the greatest gift of all dear ones of faith – time with our beloved Maker who IS love and everything good!!!

Blessed are we and will be forever in seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness and then all heavenly things shall be added unto us!!! Proud of ya for seeking Jesus!!! What is His Spirit speaking to you today through His Word??? “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
James 1:5

Having a Grace Lift

Oh there is nothing more delightful in life as we journey along on this earth than having heaven reach down and give us a grace lift when earthly life has us knocked down by our enemy Satan. Do I hear an amen from you, precious saint???

One thing is sure in this life is that the enemy is always on the prowl to discourage God’s people however he can and what our Father wants us to know is we need not go there because our loving all powerful Father is always right wherever we are to uphold us with His righteous right hand of perfect unfailing, unconditional love!!! Not only does He keep us from laying down on the ground of defeat, but as He is lifting us up, He is reminding us that there is no such thing as failure – no condemnation for those of us in Christ Jesus, only grace to reveal to us divine life so that when we get our feet under us, we can continue on with Father’s supporting grace as sufficient to help us glean from our evaluated experiences and move forward the wiser with Father’s truth for us!!! Oh we are always learning that is for sure, so let us not ever let the enemy convince us that we are any different than anyone else who is learning about life on the go of experiencing it for the first and only lifetime!!! We have our Father’s Word (the Holy Bible) and we have learning from experience!!! How exciting to always be learning!!!

Hence as Father tells us, we can count it all joy as solid gold the experiences in life that the enemy seeks to use to destroy us, but our Father works through to enlighten us and empower us to keep a going in life!!! Oh this is amazing grace and our Father’s sweet love and amazing grace is truly something to joyfully sing about as we step through this life with Father always with us!!! Father has me smiling in His grace lift for me this new day and I’m a gal stepping into life with His reassurance that with Him, life is gonna be alright and that nothing can snatch us as His people from His hand of grace that He has forever upon all of us who believe in Christ and His forever defeat of the enemy on the cross!!!

The trials of the enemy just make us stronger as we keep our hearts fixed on the love and grace of Jesus for us!!! Let us always remember the secret of life contentment and power available to us over the evil one that the Apostle Paul came to understand from Jesus’ love and words for him:

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

2 Corinthians 12:9

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the ruler, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Ephesians 6:12

“Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

Ephesians 6:13

How do we stand against the enemy??? Just as the saints of yesterday did:

“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”

Revelation 12:11

holy-spirit-today

The saints of yesterday were sure of their future and their victory in Christ so therefore, they didn’t shrink back to the enemy bluffs, nor should we!!! They prayed, rebuked the Devil and claimed God’s authority over him!!! WOOOHOOO!!! I’m a gal standing sure and holy and blameless, without accusation and with no condemnation in Christ Jesus with ya’s in heavenly authority, precious saints!!! We are more than conquerors in Father’s amazing grace as our sufficiency to stand against enemy efforts to keep us down in defeat when he raises up his worthless efforts!!!

god-has-not-given-us-a-spirit-of-fear

Father’s unfailing sufficient grace, love, strength and power is ours as this song says here. Father laid down His life so ours can always be picked up!!! Now how awesome that we can always stand divine in Jesus, hanging onto His righteous right hand!!!

child-of-the-king

Ya know what they say “Ya can’t keep a good man (or woman) down” and in Christ Jesus, that is oh sooo true!!! I’m a gal standing all right in Jesus’ robe of righteousness with ya, dear saints of royalty!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! VICTORIOUS KINGDOM FAMILY WE FOREVER ARE!!! WEAR YOUR CROWN WELL TODAY AND LET’S NEVER LET SATAN TALK US INTO LAYING IT DOWN IN DEFEAT!!! PROUD OF YOU FOR KEEPING STANDING IN CHRIST JESUS VICTORY!!!

The Strong Hold

Powerful new day greetings to you His precious royal of faith in Christ Jesus!!! As I begin this new gift of life today, I am powerfully encouraged and strengthened in our Father’s promises to us from the Lord towards His people as He shared His heart thru His leader Moses towards the Israelites in their war with the enemy:

“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.'”

Exodus 14:13-14

Faith is Having COurage

As I reflect upon this passage in the Bible today, these thoughts stand out to me:

  • God appoints leaders to lead people
  • God speaks to His leaders as to what to speak and do for the people
  • God desires that His people be at peace in heart in trusting in Him and His victory for them.
  • God desires that His people cease from all activity at times to hear His heart for them.
  • God desires that His people trust that He will save His people.
  • God is able to accomplish what He promises His people.
  • In spite of enemy tactics that flare up, God desires that His people realize He has authority over the enemy and forever victory over the enemy for His people.
  • God fights for His people in ways that are beyond anything that His people can do.
  • There are times when God calls His people to be still and know that He is God and that He will be exalted among the nations, He will be exalted in the earth. (Psalm 46:10)
  • God is able to preserve our peace in Him thru His power at work for us!!!

YYYEEESSS BRING IT FATHER!!! YYYEEESSS YOU CAN!!!

Our Father tells us in His Word:

“The Lord is good, a STRONGHOLD in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.” Nahum 1:7

Whenever we see the enemy seeking to put a stronghold upon us as people, we can know that our Father has THE STRONGHOLD upon us as His people from the love of God and this His powerful promise:

“…in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39

Here is a powerful song that speaks of Jesus as our strong tower, shelter over us as His beloved of faith!!! Oh I am sooo thankful that our Father fights for us as His people and gives us powerful leaders to guide us all in unity of His will, His plan and His purpose for us!!! Who is Father calling you to hear as His leader??? Are you a leader??? You can know our Father will give you what you need to lead His people divinely!!! Where is Father calling you to be still and know that He is your God fighting for your rescue??? Have peace that you are STRONGLY HELD by the power of the universe held in our Father’s righteous right hand!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! God’s forever got us victorious as we trust in Him!!! We are sooo blessed as His people!!! Oh that gives my heart such peace knowing that our Father knows how to communicate with us as His people and work beyond us to do more than we can ever ask or imagine!!! We can’t even breathe without Him and because of His promises to us and His record of faithfulness and love to His people, we can rest knowing we shall experience His ongoing rescue that results in our singing songs of His deliverance!!! Much love to you His beloved!!! Let us keep the faith in our faithful Father!!!
