Psalm 71:1-3 "In You, O LORD, I put my trust; let me never be put to shame. Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape; incline your ear to me, and save me. Be my strong refuge, to which I may resort continually; you have given the commandment to save me, for You are my rock and fortress." The psalmist is concerned not only with his own plight but with the character of God. His point is that God could display His righteousness by answering the needs of the psalmist, whose life had been lived in constant trust in God. "Strong refuge" the Hebrew words mean literally "rock fortress." The Lord is the only source of continual protection.
AT ONE WITH GOD - "One with Me. I and My Father are one. One with the Lord of the whole Universe! Could human aspiration reach higher? Could man's demands transcend this? One and Me. If you realize your high privilege, you have only to think and immediately the object of your thought is called into being. Indeed, well may I have said, 'Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.' To dwell in thought on the material, when once you live in Me - is to call it into being. So you must be careful only to think of and desire that which will help, not hinder, your spiritual growth. The same law operates too on the spiritual plane. Think Love and Love surrounds you, and all about whom you think. Think thoughts of ill-will and ill surrounds you, and those about whom you think. Think health-health comes. The physical reflects the mental and spiritual." My friends - this is "revelation knowledge" here. Read it again and pray over it - this mind set will change your lives for the better!
Hebrews 12: 1-3: "Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."ÃÂ The cloud of witnesses refers to the people of faith testifying to the truth of the faith. Looking means fixing one's eyes trustingly.ÃÂ We need to consistently focus on Christ instead of our own circumstances.ÃÂ Finisher - Christ has done everything necessary for us to endure in our faith.ÃÂ He is our example and model.ÃÂ Believers should compare our sufferings to the torture Christ endured on our behalf.ÃÂ Have a super weekend everyone, enjoy your families and stay warm!
DAYS OF CONQUEST - "I see the loving, striving, not the defects. I see the conquest of your particular battle. I count it victory, a glad victory. I do not compare it with the strenuous campaigns of My great Saints. For you it is victory, and the angels rejoice, and your dear ones rejoice, as much as at any conquest noted, and rejoiced over, by Heaven. My children, count the days of conquest as very blessed days."
2 Peter 3:10 - "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up." Day of the Lord describes the end time events, the Second Coming of Christ. At the end of this age in the day of the Lord's judgment, the heavens will pass away with a great noise and the elements will melt, presumably by fire. Peter's description requires the unlimited power of God in dissolving the very elements of the universe, from which He will create a new heaven and new earth.
