He is Our Refuge and Our Dwelling Place.

"Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample under your feet.
[and now the LORD speaks] "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high because he has known My name. he shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."   (Psalms 91:9-16 NKJV)

The world seeks after happiness and longs for peace and safety, yet they don't find it. Why? Because they seek their own and what they think will make them happy. But the truth is you will never be happy or satisfied when you are selfish and try to make yourself happy above others. When you have over 6 billion people seeking their own happiness and what they want then there is bound to be conflict. When ones persons wants and desires does not line up with the next persons then you have a fight, maybe harsh words, maybe a physical fight. What about when one nations wants and desires does not line up with the next? Then you get fights, wars breakout.
When you make the LORD your refuge and the one desire of your heart, no evil, it says, shall befall you or a plague (sickness). It is how God set it up that when you make the first commandment first in your life automatically the second falls right into place, and your will start loving your neighbor as you have loved yourself and instead of always wanting your way, you make place for others wants and desires above your own.
When we put the LORD first in your life your shall tread on lions and serpents and shall trample them under your feet! Amazing, that God would protect us from the evils of the world if we just put Him first in our life!

We set our love upon Him, and then our Father and bridegroom shall set us on high and when we call He shall answer us! And not matter what we go through He will never leave us not matter what we feel.

Honor us? Wow, that God would love us so much but then He says He will honor us, Wow!
Long life will we be blessed with and that He will show us His salvation.

May the LORD God bless you all and keep you in safety, may He make His face shine upon you, and give you the peace that passes all human reasoning!

Friend Connect

Hey everyone,
Was not able to send out a message, Google's Friend connect that I used is now no longer. I will have to check out the alternative when I get back from work today, but for now I'll just post :)

I trust that you are all doing well, even though circumstances may not be what you want, you know you can still be doing great! We should rise above our circumstances and not be shifted and moved by them. For if we do, then we are acting out of our carnal mind and as Paul puts it; we are acting like mere men (men/women). We now have the mind of Christ which means we are supposed to be like Jesus. We are no longer supposed to me like everyone else, not normal :)

Have a great day and week everyone!

Peace Be With You

And may the peace that passes understanding guard your hearts and minds and may you live in His true joy. For the joy and happiness of the world is only a vapor and is passing away but the joy of the LORD is truly our strength and our strong tower.
Become like the little children and do not worry about tomorrow and do not worry whether or not this season of your life is passing, just rest in Him, for, lo He is with you even till the end of the age, and beyond!
He is your light in dark times and His light never fades, so abide in Him and He will abide in you and that light will be with you always and will bring you joy in all seasons.

May the blessing of His peace be upon you always!

For The Joy Set Before Us

Last night I was thinking about how we go through trials that test us, and that is a lot of what I have been telling you all, especially that we need to persevere through those times. And though that is very true, I wanted to touch on the part where we obtain what we have diligently sought after.

For the joy that was set before Christ Jesus (the joy was us in Him and Him in us) He endured the cross. And the word endured means that what He went through was hard, but because He saw what was ahead He was able to endure suffering for the present time.
In the same way we are to look at the joy before us. But we are not to look at it as something far away and only something that we can 'dream' about. But we are to look at it as though we were just minutes away from obtaining it. Cause we are!

I think it is really important is to look back at prayers that God has answered and to see that, yes there was suffering, while you were waiting for the answer, but when the answer came the joy was so worth the trial.
And as well I think it very important to look at the joy and not the trail. Our Father loves giving us joy and that abundantly! And if we focus on the trail then we will be bogged down and  discouraged, that is why we look at the goodness of God, His joy.

So I just wanted to encourage you all that the joy FAR exceeds the suffering, and that it is definitely worth it to persevere.
So don't give up praying for Skandar. And what ever else you are needing to persevere through, DON'T GIVE UP.

Romans 1:18-19

I just started going through Romans and trying to take it apart and get more out of it by studying each verse instead of just reading all the way through.

Based on Rom 1:18: The wrath of God is shown to us from heaven, against ALL unrighteousness and ALL ungodliness of men. For they suppress the truth by, in and through unrighteousness,

Based on Rom 1:19: for what is known of God and His exceeding goodness is made known to them and is demonstrated to them and is among them by creation itself.

For our *'hearts testify of the things of God through creation/us. But our corrupted minds (by sin our hearts and minds were corrupted) try and deny God and His goodness which is why we must be renewed, that is, our minds must be renewed;  For we as a *''whole will be transformed completely, and that by the renewing of our minds (based on Romans 12:2), which can only be done through Jesus Christ the righteous.

*'hearts: Meaning our spirit and soul testify of the things of God. For how could we not (even though we are corrupted by sin) testify of God? For we are made in His image. Image not just being the way we look but a lot of that has to do with how we feel, think and act. For though a lot of that has been corrupted by sin, I believe that in each person (because we are made in the image of God) there is still some of God's heart for that is what brings about kindness. Trust me it is not sin and corruption bringing out the kindness in us.

*"whole: Meaning that ALL of who we are will be transformed.

Those are just some of my thought on those two verses :)

"Let us not grow weary"

Galatians 6:9: "And Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."

Do not lose heart in praying for Skandar, God will answer us in die season. When is due season? I don't know but our Father in heaven has a perfect plan for Skandar, our job is just to stay persistent and not grow weary.

And whatever trial you are going through, we know from James that we are to "count it all joy when we fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of our faith produces patience (endurance, perseverance)."
And then he goes on to say: "But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete (in Christ), lacking nothing."
