Bible Ballistics: BBs #568 HE IS FAITHFUL!!!
Just a short word this morning to wish those in the USA a happy 4thof July—Independence Day. And to remind us all that in Jesus Christ we have all that we need to “depend” upon! We are no longer “in”dependent—but totally dependent upon Jesus. When discouragement, disappointment or disillusionment comes (whether it be with the government, the people around us, the circumstances that come our way, or even those that we love the most) we can be assured that our God reigns!
“And I heard as it were
the voice of a great multitude,
and as the voice of many waters,
and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying,
for the Lord God omnipotent
reigneth.” Revelation 19:6
I take great comfort and confidence in the faithfulness of The Lord God Almighty, who reigns over all—and that simply means ALL!!! No more no less—and that’s enough for me. I will not stay down—but I will fix my eyes on Jesus NOT the lions!
“Let your conversation be without covetousness;
and be content with such things as ye have:
for he hath said,
I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee.
6 So that we may boldly say,
The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear
what man shall do unto me.” Hebrews 13:5-6
I pray that you will look up and not around! For we can often become discouraged by the actions, choices and reactions of others; but remember GOD still reigns. He has never said ‘oops’; and HE loves you with an everlasting love. Don’t let the enemy distract you from the truth! Put on your armor, press on and praise The Lord God in all things. (See Ephesians 6:10-19)
“For this is the love of God,
that we keep his commandments:
and his commandments are not grievous.
4 For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world:
and this is the victory
that overcometh the world,
even our faith.
5 Who is he that
overcometh the world,
but he that believeth
that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:3-5
And I close with the words of Paul:
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the communion of the Holy Ghost,
be with you all. Amen….” 2 Corinthians 13:14a
Just FYI we’re taking a few days off, so I’ll see you all Sunday, Lord willing! Blessings on your day!
