Bible Ballistics: BBs #669  Rejoice And Be Glad!!!


I just thought we might all need a word of hope and encouragement in these challenging days!  So let’s just let God’s Word speak hope, truth and joy to each of us today.  I pray that God will lift your hearts through HIS Word, draw our eyes and minds upward, for our God reigns!  He hasn’t changed His view, His Word, or His love for you and me!

Jesus Christ the same


and to day,

and for ever.”  Hebrews 13:8

The LORD is my rock,

and my fortress,

and my deliverer;

my God,

my strength,

in whom I will trust;

my buckler,

and the horn of my salvation,

and my high tower.

3 I will call upon the LORD,

who is worthy to be praised:

so shall I be saved from mine enemies…

30 As for God,

his way is perfect:

the word of the LORD

is tried:

he is a buckler

to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God

save the LORD?

or who is a rock

save our God?

32 It is God that girdeth me

with strength,

and maketh my way perfect.”   Psalm 18:2-3 & 30-32

And as God told Paul in response to his difficulties, one of my greatest words of hope and confidence that our God is at work on our behalf—always!  Even when it may not look like it!

For this thing I besought the Lord thrice,

that it might depart from me.

9 And he said unto me,

My grace is sufficient for thee:

for my strength is made perfect

in weakness.

Most gladly therefore

will I rather glory in my infirmities,

that the power of Christ

may rest upon me.

10 Therefore I take pleasure

in infirmities,

in reproaches,

in necessities,

in persecutions,

in distresses

for Christ’s sake:

for when I am weak,

then am I strong.”    2 Corinthians 12:8-10

And one that we all know, but often fail to remember!

And we know that all things

work together for good

to them that love God,

to them who are the called

according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow,

he also did predestinate

to be conformed

to the image of his Son,

that he might be the firstborn

among many brethren.”  Romans 8:28-29

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

shall tribulation,

or distress,

or persecution,

or famine,

or nakedness,

or peril,

or sword?

36 As it is written,

For thy sake

we are killed all the day long;

we are accounted as sheep

for the slaughter.

37 Nay,

in all these things

we are more than conquerors

through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded,

that neither death,

nor life, nor angels,

nor principalities,

nor powers,

nor things present,

nor things to come,

39 Nor height,

nor depth,

nor any other creature,

shall be able to separate us

from the love of God,

which is in Christ Jesus

our Lord.”  Romans 8:35-39

May God speak peace to your heart today!  We win, because 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,



for the Lord God


reigneth.”  Revelation 19:6

Amen and Amen!!!
