God wants to shelter you

 The safest place to be ... is in the hollow of His hand ... abandon yourself to God.

Jesus, the One and Only

 ONE day the believer will reign with Christ, but here on earth - the way may still be laden with troubles ... but take heart - Jesus has overcome them all ...

believe in Jesus ...

 " ... I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day."

2 Timothy 1:12

God WILL always help ...

 Paul wrote, “There was given me a thorn in my flesh, from Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness'” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9).

The cancer in the body. The sorrow in the heart. The child in the rehab center. The craving for whiskey in the middle of the day. The tears in the middle of the night. The thorn in the flesh. “Take it away!” you’ve pleaded. Not once, twice, or even three times. You’ve out-prayed the apostle Paul, and you’re about to hit the wall. But what you hear Jesus say is this: “My grace is sufficient for you.”

Sustaining grace. Grace that meets us at our point of need and equips us with courage and wisdom and strength. Sustaining grace. It doesn’t promise the absence of struggle, but it does promise the presence of God.

early morning dream ...

 i had this "interesting" dream last night ... 

it had to do with a house remodel (like HGTV) ... and i was there, plus another guest was there also ... this guest was a medium ... my Spirit (the Holy Spirit) and her spirit (NOT the Holy Spirit) were in conflict ... as i stood at the doorway to her room, the whole area filled with smoke (not a choking kind of smoke but a Presence) ... we locked eyes ...  she finally stood up and we continued to stare at each other (she was a really tall lady) ... then she asked me (without speaking) what i wanted ... i answered that i wanted her to know that the GOD i serve is the FIRST above all  ... the smoke left the room and she nodded - and even tho' she was much taller than i was, every time we met she seemed smaller ... 

now the freaky part ... this morning as i opened up my scripture reading... which was in my Daily Light reading for this  day ... it said: "Do not be afraid, I am the First and the Last."    Revelations 1:17 ... THE FIRST ... the words from my dream ...

i don't know what to make of  it - and the real world follow up this morning ... but i personally  KNOW that God is the FIRST in everything and above any other spirit that this world holds ... and Jesus is the First born from the dead ... Jesus is also the Author and Finisher of our faith.  The Holy Spirit makes intercession .. 

i continue pondering this dream ...

learning faith through trials

 "Never try to live your life with God in any other way than His way. ... Showing no concern for the uncertainties that lie ahead is the secret of walking with Jesus."

~ Oswald Chambers

"I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able."
2 Timothy 1:12

"Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to Him, "Yes, Lord." "According to your faith let it be to you."
Matthew 9:28-29

Jesus still saves ...

                               BE RECONCILED TO GOD ....

" ... if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10:9

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."  John 3:16-17
