Religion

The Lord is My Shepherd

“I shall not want.” The 23rd Psalm continues to speak of the ways the Shepherd takes care of His own. If you read no farther than the 1st verse, you would know the totality of the Shepherds care. “I shall not want” (have need of anything…need not fear anything… need not despair nor feel alone or abandoned…). With the Shepherd, you have all you will ever need.

Keep the Faith

†  † 

Faith is Trusting and Believing. God’s ways and thoughts are not ours (Isaiah 55: 8-9), yet we continue to try to understand Him. Understand that He loves us so much that He suffered and died on a wooden cross. He asks us to trust, not question: to believe, not doubt. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Keep the Faith!

Faith

Faith is the substanceof things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…

Faith…one word…five letters…and without it you cannot please God. The eleventh chapter of Hebrews lists some of those who walked by faith. Each verse begins with “By faith”.  There is no mention of wealth or fame and fortune because of their faith…there is much mentioned of their hardships and suffering for their faith.

There is coming a day in America when one’s faith will be tested like never before…a day when hardship and suffering will be at the door. We hear about it…we read about it…we watch it on the news as if it were a movie.

The eleventh chapter of Hebrews is worthy of thought. The “Faith Chapter” is worthy of consideration. It is time to ask ourselves if we can stand by faith…suffer by faith…even die by faith; for one day it may be so.

He Calms the Storm

“He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.”* A passage from the book of Psalms. A thought for another day in this busy world. You don’t have to sail alone…let Him help you.

* NKJV
