Cost of Deliverance

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death.
Proverbs 11:4 NASB

“In the day of wrath”. As I read this verse I thought of the wrath that is being brought down on the Ukraine right now.
Where are the riches? Where is the security and peace of these riches? Are these riches profitting any of those in the midst of wrath?
One day a great wrath is coming on all mankind:

Neither their silver nor their gold Will be able to deliver them On the day of the Lord’s wrath; And all the earth will be devoured In the fire of His jealousy, For He will make a complete end, Indeed a terrifying one, Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
Zephaniah 1:18 NASB

The only thing that will save anyone from death is . . . Righteousness. And since no human has a righteousness of their own we must put on the robe of righteousness, which is Jesus Christ.

But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption,
1 Corinthians 1:30 NASB

🌹Jesus Christ became to us righteousness. Will you be depending on the riches of this world or on the  righteousness of Jesus Christ?

Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?” — Job 11:7

My Thoughts on “What! Not Help You?”

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:19

Isn’t it true how we have at our disposal the Wisdom of the universe, a 24 hour a day Counselor, Peace giver and yet we do not seek nor tap into, or should I say plug into, the Source of Power for life?

God loves us and is available for us, meeting our every need if only we would reach out, seek Him.

I also see a great example here. If God can supply our every need and is a help to us, should we not also follow His example and help others? The excuse that I can’t afford to help a neighbor in need or an entourage of other excuses does not hold water. God by example helps us, giving us what we need. Will He not also give us what we need to help others by example? Are we not called to serve one another? Out of our gratitude of the bounty of God’s helpfulness we overflow helpfulness to others.

Blessed Are We!

So David blessed the Lord in the sight of all the assembly; and David said, “Blessed are You, O Lord God of Israel our father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself as head over all. 12 Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone. 13 Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name. — 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

Wow!!! Hallelujah!!!! Praise God!!!!!

Our Father forever and ever
He is greatness and power
He is glory and victory

Hope, In God or Riches?

My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken. — Psalm 62:1-2

My soul waits in silence for God only. In silence. Quietness to hear the still small voice of the Lord. To be filled with the peace of God that comes in the silence of my prayer closet. He is my rock and salvation, my stronghold.

My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken. — Psalm 62:5-6

Addressing my soul, I say, “wait in silence for God only”. He is my hope, my rock and salvation, my stronghold, my refuge, my strength.

On God my salvation and my glory restThe rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. — Psalm 62:7-8

On Him alone rest my salvation and glory. I shall not be shaken! I shall trust Him at ALL times and pour out my heart before Him in prayer.

If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them. — Psalm 62:10b
He who trusts in his riches will fall, But the righteous will flourish like the green leaf. — Proverbs 11:28

Where is your trust today?
