A Breath Of God’s ‘Air’??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #95

Our soul waiteth

for the LORD:

he is our help

and our shield.

21 For our heart shall rejoice

in him,

because we have trusted

in his holy name.

22 Let thy mercy, O LORD,

be upon us,

according as we hope

in thee.  Psalm 33:20-22

May our hearts be set on The Lord God Almighty, The Son Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit, as we take each step today and each today that God grants to us.  Thank you for your prayers for my arm, it’s much better but not 100% yet. May we keep our eyes “fixed on Jesus”!

Surely every man walketh

in a vain shew:

surely they are disquieted

in vain:

he heapeth up riches,

and knoweth not who shall gather them.

7 And now, Lord,

what wait I for?

my hope is in thee.

8 Deliver me from all my transgressions:

make me not the reproach of the foolish.”  Psalms 39:6-8

May we pursue God rather than the riches of the world, having the “most toys”, doesn’t gain eternal life, only Jesus saves!

Amen and Amen!!!

Immovable Or Unmovable??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #94

Immovable or Unmovable??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #94

Immovable: incapable of being moved…fixed…stationary…

Unmovable: impossible to move…unyielding in purpose…

I have just a few things to share with you all today, and as my arm is still not well, I can’t type as I normally do, but I do want to share a few words that I pray will help us examine our hearts and lives to see if we are obstinately “immovable” in “our own ways” or if we are truly “unyielding in purpose”, particularly to God’s Word, ways, and purposes (as HE has revealed to us in HIS WORD!).

There are two passages from Paul’s writings that I think put these in a ‘nutshell’ for us today, and I pray that we will all take time to hear and heed the work of the Holy Spirit in all things.  Even as Jesus promised the resource of His Holy Spirit.

Howbeit when he,

the Spirit of truth, is come,

he will guide you into all truth:

for he shall not speak of himself;

but whatsoever he shall hear,

that shall he speak:

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me:

for he shall receive of mine,

and shall shew it unto you.”  John 16:13-14

Paul gives us a great picture of the contrast of our call and our stand!  Who called you/me?  What is HE calling you and me to?  We are so blessed by our Lord, yet we are also called to commit ourselves to Jesus and not our own ways!

I beseech you therefore, brethren,

by the mercies of God,

that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,


acceptable unto God,

which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world:

but be ye transformed

by the renewing of your mind,

that ye may prove

what is that good,

and acceptable,

and perfect,

will of God.

3 For I say,

through the grace given unto me,

to every man that is among you,

not to think of himself

more highly than he ought to think;

but to think soberly,

according as God hath dealt

to every man

the measure of faith.”   Romans 12:1-3

To God be the glory–for all the provision is from HIM.  Even as Jesus said in John 15:5, “…without me ye can do nothing…”!

But thanks be to God,

which giveth us the victory

through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren,

be ye stedfast,


always abounding

in the work of the Lord,

forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain

in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 15:57-58

Amen and Amen!!!

A Brief Word From Paul!! A Word from THE WORD!!! #93

A Brief Word From Paul!! A Word from THE WORD!!! #93

I injured my hand a few days ago and can’t write a lot, but wanted to share with you this morning and pray that God will bless each of us as we seek to do HISwill, HIS work, and HIS pleasure HIS way.

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


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


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.”  1 Thessalonians 5:15-24

Have a great week, and I’ll see you next week, Lord willing.

Amen and Amen!!!

Another Day??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #92

Another Day??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #92

This is the day

which the LORD hath made;

we will rejoice

and be glad in it.”  Psalm 118:24

God is the creator of each and every day–HE started them, and He keeps them going–and His blessing is there for us if we will but look up and rely upon HIS care, love and direction.  The problem comes when we go off on our own, believing the lies and schemes of the enemy, Satan!  We have an ever-present God, who cares, loves, and provides when we will but look up, press on and wait upon HIS direction!  What will you do with this day?  It’s your choice but choose wisely there is a test.

He giveth power

to the faint;

and to them that have no might

he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths

shall faint and be weary,

and the young men

shall utterly fall:

31 But they that wait upon the LORD

shall renew

their strength;

they shall mount up

with wings as eagles;

they shall run,

and not be weary;

and they shall walk,

and not faint.”  Isaiah 40:29-31

Jesus calls us to follow HIM today, without fretting, fear, or frustration over tomorrow before it gets here.  We are to live in the “today”–the “today” that God gives us each morning, rejoicing in HIM and the task that HE sets before “me” “today”!  I don’t have to worry about your work, or anyone else’s (other than as I am called upon to help others) but I can rejoice in the privilege of serving my KING TODAY!  How about you?  Whose kingdom are you seeking?  Men’s or God’s?

But seek ye first

the kingdom of God,

and his righteousness;

and all these things

shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought

for the morrow:

for the morrow shall take thought

for the things of itself.

Sufficient unto the day

is the evil thereof.”  Matthew 6:33-34

So, it’s “today”, what will you do with it?  As I said, it’s your choice, but choose wisely there is a test; and I choose to “rejoice” that:

This is the day

which the LORD hath made;

we will rejoice

and be glad in it.

 Amen and Amen!!!

A Mother’s Moment??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #91

A Mother’s Moment??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #91

I’m going to take a little bit of a different take on the post for today, and whether it turns out short or long, there are some things I want to share from my heart–the heart of a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a friend, a neighbor, a Bible teacher as well as a learner; but today I’d like to share some of my own perspective of what I see around me.  What I see in the world around me, in my community, in my own family; while God gave every person the right to choose, we seem to have forgotten God’s admonition to us all.

Be not deceived;

God is not mocked:

for whatsoever a man soweth,

that shall he also reap.

8 For he that soweth to his flesh

shall of the flesh reap corruption;

but he that soweth to the Spirit

shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

9 And let us not be weary

in well doing:

for in due season

we shall reap,

if we faint not.

10 As we have therefore opportunity,

let us do good unto all men,

especially unto them

who are of the household of faith.”  Galatians 6:7-10

It is your choice, but choose wisely, there is a test!  And the standard is God and HIS WORD!

For the word of God

is quick,

and powerful,

and sharper than any twoedged sword,

piercing even to the dividing asunder

of soul and spirit,

and of the joints and marrow,

and is a discerner

of the thoughts

and intents of the heart.

13 Neither is there any creature

that is not manifest in his sight:

but all things

are naked

and opened

unto the eyes of him

with whom we have to do.”                      Hebrews 4:12-13

We will all give an account, and we can choose to walk our own way or God’s way, but there is a difference, and it is seen from the inside out.  Jesus makes that real clear!

A good man

out of the good treasure of the heart

bringeth forth good things:

and an evil man

out of the evil treasure

bringeth forth evil things.

36 But I say unto you,

That every idle word

that men shall speak,

they shall give account thereof

in the day of judgment.”   Matthew 12:35-36

Do not ye yet understand,

that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth

goeth into the belly,

and is cast out into the draught?

18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth

come forth from the heart;

and they defile the man.

19 For out of the heart

proceed evil thoughts,

murders, adulteries,



false witness,


20 These are the things which defile a man:

but to eat with unwashen hands

defileth not a man.”  Matthew 15:17-20

And before we return to the words of Jesus, I’d like us to consider the message of James–And if there was ever a message to a people, a people who like to talk about Jesus but then use language more suited to the gutter than civil conversation; a people who talk about loving Jesus and live in sin, immorality, greed, self-destructive habits, dis-regard for life, righteousness, and mostly the God who reigns on HIS Throne!  I’m not throwing rocks, but I am hoping that God can use this message to call people to repentance, to call the lost to repentance and faith in Jesus’ substitutionary, atoning sacrifice for sin; to call His own to holy living rather than being influenced by the corruption of this world which is leading men, women, boys and girls (and yes there is a difference between ‘girls’ and ‘boys’–God created it and HE hasn’t changed HIS mind or the rules!) straight to hell! !  I many will just stop right here and say I’m old-fashioned, and YES, I thank God I am!  If ‘old-fashioned’ means living God’s way and not the world’s; if it means refusing to use words and phrases that are crude and lude; if it means being respectful of others while refusing to compromise my own personal convictions; if it means trying to live with the ‘fruit of the Spirit’ before the world rather than the lusts of this fleshly world.  James says it better than I could!

But the tongue can no man tame;

it is an unruly evil,

full of deadly poison.

9 Therewith bless we God,

even the Father;

and therewith curse we men,

which are made after the similitude of God.

10 Out of the same mouth

proceedeth blessing

and cursing.

My brethren,

these things ought not so to be.

11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place

sweet water

and bitter?

12 Can the fig tree,

my brethren,

bear olive berries?

either a vine,


so can no fountain

both yield salt water

and fresh.

13 Who is a wise man

and endued with knowledge among you?

let him shew out of a good conversation

his works with meekness of wisdom.

14 But if ye have

bitter envying

and strife

in your hearts,

glory not,

and lie not against the truth.

15 This wisdom descendeth not from above,

but is earthly,


devilish.”  James 3:8-14

And in closing, I leave you with the call of Jesus to examine your heart, and please come to HIM in repentance and faith if you don’t know HIM, or in repentance and restoration if you have already been born again.  The days are drawing close to HIS return, I pray that you will be ready.

Enter ye in at the strait gate:

for wide is the gate,

and broad is the way,

that leadeth to destruction,

and many there be

which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate,

and narrow is the way,

which leadeth unto life,

and few there be

that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets,

which come to you in sheep’s clothing,

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them

by their fruits.

Do men gather grapes

of thorns,

or figs

of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree

bringeth forth good fruit;

but a corrupt tree

bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree

cannot bring forth evil fruit,

neither can a corrupt tree

bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit

is hewn down,

and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits

ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me,

Lord, Lord,

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;

but he that doeth the will of my Father

which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day,

Lord, Lord,

have we not prophesied in thy name?

and in thy name have cast out devils?

and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them,

I never knew you:

depart from me,

ye that work iniquity.”  Matthew 7:13-23

I pray that you will examine your heart and your mouth–you are influencing someone today!  And I thank God for the privilege of being a mother, and I hope you hear the heart of this mother calling you to come to Jesus either for salvation, if you are lost in sin, or for cleansing and restoration to HIS service if you are HIS own! I pray that all of you know or will come to know the Father of Heaven who loves you so much that:

For God so loved the world,

that he gave his only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in him

should not perish,

but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16

Amen and Amen!!!
