Bible Ballistics: BBs #784    God Hasn’t Moved!!!


I would like to share a word of encouragement with you today; I can’t explain the joy in my heart this morning apart from “the joy of the Lord IS my strength”!  I know the world is going crazy, times are trying, prices are rising like a speeding train, and masks, disease, and fear are the pervading mindset of so many, but my friends “the Lord God omnipotent reigneth”!!!  God has not left the throne!  God has not abdicated to the enemy, the world or time!  As an old hymn by William M. Ramsey says, “There Is A Deep Settled Peace In My Soul”—in my heart and overflowing in such peace that I haven’t felt in a long time.  God’s presence is with me, and HE will be with you if you will but “stop, look, and listen” to the Lord Jesus, who gave Himself for YOU and me!

I would like to share a few passages of scripture that I hope will lift your heart if you’re down, encourage you if you’re confused, tired, weary, wondering or just slap worn out.  God knows, HE cares, the answers are found in HIM, His voice and Spirit who dwells within His own; and I pray that He will speak to each of us today through HIS Word!

For thou hast been a strength

to the poor,

a strength

to the needy in his distress,

a refuge

from the storm,

 a shadow

from the heat,

when the blast of the terrible ones

is as a storm against the wall.”  Isaiah 25:4

Jesus promised that HE will ever be with His own, and I pray that you know HIM, and have the power and peace of the born again!  If not, you can call upon Him today—right now if you please.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:

if any man hear my voice,

and open the door,

I will come in to him,

and will sup with him,

and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh

will I grant to sit with me

 in my throne,

even as I also overcame,

and am set down with my Father

in his throne.”   Revelation 3:20-21

And how did Jesus overcome?  Well, it’s more like, ‘where’ did Jesus overcome?  HE overcame at the cross and that is the only place where we will find overcoming power for every trial, grief, sorrow, victory, and the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in us!  Praise God from whom all blessings do abundantly flow!  Amen!

My sheep hear my voice,

and I know them,

and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life;

and they shall never perish,

neither shall any man pluck them

out of my hand.

29 My Father,

which gave them me,

is greater than all;

and no man is able to pluck them

out of my Father’s hand.

30 I and my Father are one.”  John 10:27-30

HE’s got you and me!  Let’s grow and learn to rest in Jesus and His perfect will, plan, and way for each of us.  Now, I’d simply like to leave you with a few scriptures to ponder and take hope in.  Remember, our GOD reigns—still—and forever!  And as the old song asks, “if that isn’t love”, then my friend you will never know love or truth!

The LORD is good,

a strong hold in the day of trouble;

and he knoweth them

that trust in him.”  Nahum 1:7

He that dwelleth in the secret place

of the most High

 shall abide under the shadow

of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD,

He is my refuge

and my fortress:

my God;

in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee

from the snare of the fowler,

and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers,

and under his wings shalt thou trust:

his truth shall be thy shield

and buckler.”  Psalm 91:1-4

May God’s peace rule in your heart today and always!

My help

cometh from the LORD,

which made heaven and earth.

3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:

he that keepeth thee

will not slumber.”  Psalm 121:3-4.

Amen and Amen!!!
