Gods promises best best

Psalms 145: 9-14

The Lord is good to all;
he has compassion on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you, Lord;
your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
and faithful in all he does,
14 The Lord upholds all who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.

Do you remember in my New Year’s blog January 1, 2013… that I said this is the year to really know and trust in the PROMISES of God?  I just want to remind you of this.  I know many people have already had challenges in these past few weeks.  The word of God says that He (God) is TRUSTWORTHY!!!!  He is FAITHFUL!!!!

If you’re a Christian…your life is already planned out for you.  God has already taken care of you.  Your biggest blessing is that no matter what happens to you…you WILL be OK because Jesus has already won the battle for you.  You have all the help you’re going to need down here on earth and eternal life is already yours and you will have a perfect life after you make your transition from this life.  Everything for us is all good no matter what goes on down here.

This doesn’t mean we are going to enjoy every moment down here.  But we should be comforted in knowing what the above scriptures say about what’s promised to us as God’s children is true and trustworthy.  We should not be walking around in fear…but we should be walking around in faith… faith in a wonder supernatural loving God who adopted us into His very own supernatural family!  (Just want to add this note here…we need to live right…walk with the Lord…pray… and study His word)

So as you face your day today…let’s remember this…God has made promises for you to have a blessed life….walk in that blessing…relax…put your shoulders down….take a deep breath…put your mind on God…His promises…His love for you…the angels that are standing beside you right now, watching over you…the goodness and mercy that are following you…and the Holy Spirit that is inside of your physical body providing all your spiritual needs, support, and comfort.

Message for today:  You are blessed!

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Gods promises best

 

FYI ********The bible was written in about 1,445BC…add that number to 2013AD And you get 3,458 years.  In reality God had these promises to us in His mind….forever!

God does indeed have a plan

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Question– Why would God create Lucifer who He knew would turn out bad and would tempt Adam and Eve to sin… that exposed all of creation to original sin and separation from God?

My answer-A.) Because… God knew it had to be done because of His Holiness and His nature and also for unknown reasons that we can’t understand now.

B.) A very important part to this answer is that …”He knew He was going to come down and Himself and make a way for us to be put right with Him”. He provided a fix for the problem…He made a way of escape…He made a way for us to be sanctified. We were rescued…we can be saved. Jesus paid the price  for my life and yours. 

God had a plan for the creations he made! He didn’t do this whole human thing and then go….whoops!  He’s God…He doesn’t make mistakes. He knows what He’s doing….we don’t…..we don’t understand Him or His peculiar ways at all.  All we need to know is …that God knows what He needs to do for mankind and He knows what His born again children need also.

Psalms 33:11 But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.

 

There is a song that’s so fitting…..”He’s got the whole world in His hands”. Yes He does!

God is not confused…He is not bipolar….He’s not forgetful….He’s not on vacation….He’s not out of money….kryptonite hasn’t stripped Him of His power…the devil doesn’t have Him hoodwinked….there is nothing wrong with God!!! He has plans…perfect plans.

Are we going to trust our incredible God or not? Are we going to be struck with fear every time something negative happens? Today on the news… there has been nothing but heartbreaking things that have happened. God said these kinds of things would happen. These unfortuate events didn’t surprise Him.  He gave us help….a living and Holy book…the bible which is His words to us and His Holy Spirit and to help us during these difficult times. He told us to cast everything that distresses us on Him. He said He would never leave us. Are we going to believe what He has said to us? Will we truly trust Him?

We know some things about our wonderful Father but we don’t and can’t understand all His plans for us. So what do we do? Love Him… because of WHO He is and TRUST Him because of who HE is. Love and trust Him. Hold on to His leg and cry if you need to but don’t let go! Our Abba Father loves us! Donnie McClurkin sings a song called stand and it goes like this:

What do you do
when you’ve done all you can
And it seems like it’s never enough?
And what do you say
when your friends turn away,
you’re all alone?
Tell me, what do you give
When you’ve given your all,
and seems like
you can’t make it through?

Stand and be sure
Be not entangled in that bondage again
You just stand, and be sure.
God has a purpose.
Yes, God has a plan.

 

We don’t have to worry about the sin that came into the world. What mankind needs to worry about is… are you part of God plan to make you part of His Family? This Christmas we celebrated the birthday of His perfect plan called Immanuel….God with us. His name is Jesus Christ. God came to earth in the form of a man to put us right with Him. All we have to do is repent of our sins and believe and accept His Son Jesus Christ and then live the rest of our earthly life that is pleasing to God. Why did He go through all this trouble???? Why did Jesus pay such a price? BECAUSE God LOVES US…IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE!!

Message for today: God had a plan….He became a man….The Man became a Lamb…So I wouldn’t forever be banned…. from that distant land….By faith I took a stand…I know heaven will be grand…..Do you understand….that you have to know that man….Jesus?
