Trust The Truth

“The Rock! His work is perfect,
For all His ways are just;
A God of faithfulness and without injustice,
Righteous and upright is He.

— Deuteronomy 32:4

Do you believe that God, the Rock, is perfect, just, upright and faithful? Then why don’t you trust Him completely? Surrender everything and trust Him with your life.

Continually seeking Him,

Listen To The Word

Listen to the word of the Lord, O sons of Israel,
For the Lord has a case against the inhabitants of the land,
Because there is no faithfulness (truth) or kindness (loyalty)
Or knowledge of God in the land. — Hosea 4:1

Does the Lord have a case against you?

Enter His Gates

Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations. — Psalm 100:4-5

Let’s enter Thanksgiving with the focus on the One who truly deserves our thankfulness. Without God creating us we would not be here to enjoy Thanksgiving. Without our God we would have nothing to be thankful for as all good things come from Him.*

Be thankful not just now but everyday for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Be thankful because of His faithfulness to all generations. He can be trusted. He is peace. He is love. He is all we need.

Thankful for God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit — three in One.

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon

Legacy

I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever; To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth. 26 “He will cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’ — Psalms 89:1, 26

“To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth.” Is this the legacy you are leaving behind? Will you be remembered for sharing the Lord’s faithfulness to you? Are you crying out to God, “You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation”? Do others know that God is your Father, God and Rock? Will Jesus be exalted and remembered by the life you leave behind?

Make a difference. Know God intimately and He will establish your legacy.

Continually seeking Him,

The Lord Is Good

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 100

Bitterness

I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” — Lamentations 3:19-24

Have you ever experienced bitterness? That something that is hard to bear, distressing, painful, grieving your soul that brings the taste of bitterness? Remember lest that bitterness turns to fierce, cruel, ruthless, relentless or hostile bitterness, that there is hope.

This is our hope: “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.”

God has a plan and sometimes that plan doesn’t sit well with us causing bitterness. Take your bitterness to the Lord. His compassions never fail. He is faithful. Trust Him and wait on Him. He is our portion. He is all we need and the answer to all our woes and bitterness. He will renew you with His faithfulness and compassion every new day. Praise the Lord God Almighty.

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Prayer has been the subject of my devotionals the past three days  and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share this old hymn that supports prayer so well. If not for God’s faithfulness we would not know compassion, mercy, provision, love, peace, guidance, strength, hope, salvation, contentment, joy and blessings. All this from a God who is, was and forever will be. The more we talk with Him the more we enjoy His presence and experience His faithfulness.

 

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Refrain

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Refrain

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Refrain

 

The heavens will praise Your wonders, O Lord;
Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.
For who in the skies is comparable to the Lord?
Who among the sons of the mighty is like the Lord, — Psalm 89:5-6

Continually seeking Him,
