TASTE AND TRUST - Psalm 34:8: 'O taste and see that the LORD is good.' "He is good. Trust in Him. Know that all is well. Say 'God is good. God is good.' Just leave in His Hands the present and the future, knowing only that He is good. He can bring order out of chaos, a good out of evil, peace out of turmoil. God is good. I and My Father are One. One in desire to do good. For God to do good to His children is for Him to share His goodness with them. God is good, anxious to share His goodness, and good things, with you, and He will do this. Trust and be not afraid."
Psalm 50: 14, 15: "Offer to God thanksgiving. And pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me." On this Thanksgiving day I encourage you to heed King David's advice. Give Thanks for what you have. These are hard times for us all globally and we can call upon His name and He will deliver us. Give God the glory for all He has Blessed you with and receive His Holy Power. Caroline and I are thankful for all the Lord has blessed us with, especially our friends and family. Enjoy your day brothers and sisters - eat, drink and be merry, but don't forget to thank our Creator. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
FULLL JOY - John 15:11 - 'These things have I spoken unto you...that your joy might be full.' "Remember that the Truths I teach you have all been given to you too (as to My disciples of old) with the idea of giving you that overflowing Joy... Search for the Joy in Life. Hunt for it as for hidden treasure. Love and Laugh. Delight yourselves in the Lord. Joy in Me. Full Joy it was I wished My disciples to have. I intended them to have it. Had they lived My Teachings out in their daily lives they would have had Fullness of Joy."
Jesus is speaking in Revelation 22: 12, 13: "And behold, I am coming quickly, My reward is with me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last." The rewarding of each believer according to his or her works is taught in 2 Cor. 5:10. Christ's rewards are meant to provide a powerful incentive for an obedient life. The judgment seat of Christ can be a time of great regret, or it can be an occasion of supreme joy. After Christ comes again, He will give rewards to His own This can be counted on because Christ is in control of all history and eternity.
DWELL THERE - Psalm 91:1 - 'He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.' "Hidden in a sure place, known only to God and you. So secret that no power on Earth can even find it. But, My beloved children, you must dwell therein. No fitful visit, a real abiding. Make it your home. Your dwelling-place. Over that home shall My Shadow rest, to make it doubly secret. Like brooding mother-bird wings that Shadow rests. How safe, how sure, you must feel there. When fears assail you, and cares trouble you, then it is because you have ventured out of that protecting. Shadow. Then the one, the only thing, to do is to creep back into shelter again. So rest."
