Wake up Americans!

The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. — Deuteronomy 28:9

The Lord will send upon you curses, confusion, and rebuke, in all you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken Me. — Deuteronomy 28:20

“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.” — Deuteronomy 30:15-20

Look at the United States of America’s history and then tell me that Jesus doesn’t make a difference in the lives of people and nations. God will get the glory! How do you want to participate in that glory?

Can You Hear Him?

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to  Cephas, then to the twelve. — 1 Corinthians 15:3-5

that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be  disappointed.” — Romans 10:9-11

Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. — Isaiah 30:21

Do you believe? Have you confessed? Are you walking your journey of life with your guide Jesus directing you “This is the way, walk in it”?

If not, why not? Know Jesus. Know peace.

Make Up Your Mind

But Daniel made up his mind that he would not defile himself  — Daniel 1:8a

But if you do not worship, you will immediately be cast into the midst of a furnace of blazing fire; and what god is there who can deliver you out of my hands?”

Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego     replied to the king, “O                               Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to give you an answer concerning this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.” — Daniel 3:15b-18

Daniel made up his mind. Do you think Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego made up their minds? Have you?

Cease Striving (Be Still)

“Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” — Psalm 46:10

One of my favorite verses that I fall back on quite often. When my life seems overwhelming and I can’t keep up with all the demands this world throws at me, when the peace I experience with the fullness of Christ in me has fled — I’m reminded that I need to be still in God’s almighty presence, exalt Him and know He is in control of all things, including my life.

Being still in His presence, I pray a prayer that includes praise and thanksgiving which helps me to know my God is mighty and can handle whatever comes my way. Prayer for others reminds me that some have worse hurdles than mine to get over and prayer for myself helps me relinquish my life to the One who gave it to me.

There is NOTHING too big or too small that the God of this universe, who created you, can’t handle. Cease your striving and know that He is God. HE WILL BE EXALTED!!!!!!!

Prayer, As Always

Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously. —  Daniel 6:10

How faithful are you in personal prayer time? Oh, that we were a kingdom of people who prayed. How would things be different? How would you be different? Different enough that your prayer life would continue even if it meant “being cast into the lion’s den”? Do you have the strength to persevere? Prayer — faithful, continuous, earnest prayer — makes a difference in your life, the life of others, and the world. Are you making a difference?

You are God

Before the mountains were born
Or You gave birth to the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. — Psalm 90:2

You are God!!!

What significance are those three words to you? How is your worship and praise of God affected by them?

To You, God,  be the glory because You are!!!
