“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
my God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers,
and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side,
and ten thousand at your right hand;
but it shall not come near you.” (Psalm 91:1-7)
Praise to You, dear Lord, our Father!
Jesus said of the signs before He returns:“…and there will be famines, pestilences (plagues), and earthquakes in many places. All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth pains).” (Mt.24:7, Mk.13:8, Lk.21:11)
Eboli is spreading and is just the beginning. Yet, we must not be in fear of such things Jesus promises to occur, as signs of His return. Instead we must accept Jesus as our Savior, repent of our sins on a daily basis, trust in Him and take refuge under His wings.
“Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants.” (Thomas Jefferson)
So sad, but true. If our free nations will continue to reject God (Yahweh) and His commandments, we are headed towards tyranny. Lord God, help us do the following: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
My friend said to me, “Kim, why aren’t you teaching peace like Joel Osteen.”
Jesus says, “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.” (Matthew 10:34) Also, “Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.” (Luke 12:51)
Jesus is the Word (John 1:14) and truth causes division, as it is a double edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). Are we going to be on His right hand or His left? Many are only listening to what their itching ears want to hear, but we must listen and take heed to all of God’s Word bringing both conviction and healing to our lives.
There is no better way to be ready than to praise and thank our Lord.
“Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
tell of all His wonderful works! Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!” (1 Chronicles 16:7-10)
Praising our Lord, brings us into His presence, which gives us joy. Thank You, Lord, our Savior!
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2)
Thank You, Lord.
