Are You Under The Shadow of God’s Wings

Are You under The Shadow Of God's WingsI would like to bring your attention to Psalm 36:7, “How excellent is thy loving-kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.”

This part of the verse “men put their trust under the shadow of God’s wings” gives us a place to go when we are at a place in our life where only help from God will do. Also, it’s a place where we should always want to stay getting closer to him.

When you put your trust in God for leadership and guidance he places you under his wings where these five attributes of God can be be found.

1. Protection. Were his security is around us, our family, and our possessions. We get that defense from him. It’s better than any type of security system although sometimes he uses that as part of protecting us.

2. Love. God has love for us that will be found nowhere else from no one else. It’s physically impossible to love like him. The love he shows goes deeper and broader than we could imagine. We only see a small portion of his love. But what we do see is out of this world.

3. Encouragement. When you are down and out for the last count and nowhere to go. For that matter don’t want to go anywhere. Something deep down inside your mind and body sparks a interest in getting up moving to a better place. God is the spark that ignited the fire.

4. Strength. Weak, drained, and barely have enough strength to put one foot in front of the other. Don’t want to do anything, see anyone, or go anywhere because it hurts so much. God will reach down lift you up and give you the needed strength to continue.

5. Comfort. Life brings up some tough situations to deal with sometimes. Learning to handle them can be hard. They will bring us to the point of quitting. No, I meant we actually say, “I quit!” We feel like we just can’t go on like this. Then out from no where. Maybe out of thin air. We get up on our feet with a renewed spirit ready to take the world on.

Where does this come from? It comes from God.

This is all about God. He does these things without fail. He knows what we need, when we need it, and how much we need. Getting a dose of God is good for us. We need it.

This comes from being under the shadow of God’s wings.

Read Bible Verse:

By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
Psalm 41:11

Verse For Thought:

FavorDoes God favor you? Is God pleased with you?

Each day we live our life’s on our own terms doing as we please. Do we consider what we do if it pleases God?

Everything we do before we do it we should make sure that God would be pleased. If not then don’t do it.

Sometimes it does not matter how hard we try we will do things that God does not like. That is when we need to ask forgiveness and try really hard not to do it again.

The question still remains, “Is God pleased with you?”

For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
Psalm 36:9

Verse For Thought:

In Thy Light Shall We See LightIn God’s light is where we will see light. It is not talking about daylight. But when God opens your eyes. Here are two reasons why God would open your eyes to see the light.

1. Open the lost person’s eyes to the light. Before a person accepts Jesus as their personal savior the are lost in darkness. Living for the devil because he is your father. Covered in sin on the outside and filled with sin on the inside.

2. Open a saved persons eyes to bible truths. After salvation bible knowledge does not miraculously come flooding into your mind. A new christian needs to go to a good Independent Fundamental Baptist Church to get grounded in the word of God. Then they need to read and study the King James Bible to learn more about God and how to grow closer to him.

Do you see the light?

Prayer Request June 10-16 2012 – Continue In Prayer

Date: Sunday June 10, 2012 – Saturday June 16, 2012

Prayer Verse:

Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
Colossians 3:1

Prayer Thought:

PrayPrayer has become at most a thing in the past. For some they don’t believe in God but others are just to busy.

God is not important anymore. He is not priority. He’s secondary or below at most.

That is the reason why the bible says to continue in prayer. More people need to devote themselves to prayer. They need to be instant and persevere even when the going gets tough.

Prayer is scarce it’s about time we go back to it.

Pray!

Slack Off Take Over

Slack Off Take OverI’ve become lazy and inefficient at home with my blog and other chores. It’s so easy to allow my mind and body to take over and control things. When they rely on how I feel then not much gets done.

3 Ways To Take Back The Slack Off Take Over

1. Realize your mind and body are trying to tell you something specific.

Find out what the problem is. Go back to the point before it took place and retrace your steps until you know what is hindering you. It could be something simple or major. But identify it.

2. Allow it to take it place for a short while.

Whether you what to or not it will interrupt your life to run its course. Until you figure out what is causing the problem and how to fix it. It may not interfere with your whole life but only during certain times. Your mind and body will need to go through these stages in order to properly get through it.

3. Don’t let it take over your life.

The main objective is to get through it without it taking over your life for a long period of time. So look actively for the problem and then find a reasonable solution.

Sometimes it will be easy but other times it will be hard. This means there is no one single answer to all your problems. But you will need to work through it and keep moving forward.

When you feel like and when you don’t progress still needs to be made. Take baby steps if you need to.

How do you get through the tough times and the discouraging times?

Verse For Thought:

Synergy Night Rubenstein Barton FountainDid you know “with God is the fountain of life?” If we are to ever make the most out life it will only come from God. Yes, some successes will come from other sources. But when you tap into his fountain it’ll never stop working.

Are you tapped into God’s fountain of life or another source? The other source is not as reliable or has as many benefits.

What is keeping you from accessing God’s fountain of life? Are you reluctant to try it out.

You can have no fears because as soon as the fountain of life is accessed there are no bad repercussions. There are only excellent ones.

The fountain of life is accessed by accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.

06-07-2012 – Psalm 36:7 How Excellent Is Thy Loving-Kindness, O God!

Read Bible Verse:

How excellent is thy loving-kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
Psalm 36:7

The Verse Challenger: Find out more here.

Verse For Thought:

Loving-KindnessLoving-kindness is tender kindness motivated by or expressing affection. (dictionary.com)

We think about the above definition in earthly terms. What if we consider it on a much larger scale. Heavenly terms. God’s terms.

Our earthly minds could not fathom the greatness of God’s loving-kindness. We only see bits and pieces of what he did throughout the King James Bible and today in peoples lives.

Example 1: He allowed his son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins to be the final and ultimate sacrifice so that whoever believes on him and accepts him as their savior can go to heaven.

Example 2: He works miracles in people’s live by healing them when the doctor says there is no hope.

Example 3: He provides for people when there is nothing to work with.

The example list could keep going. God sees what we don’t see. It’s like standing on the ground looking straight in front of you. Your sight distance is limited.

If you were to get in an air plane and fly high in the sky then you would see things from a broader perspective but still with sight limitations. You would not see things how God sees them.

Because he looks inside mans hearts not just on the outside. That is how he knows what we need and when to give it us. Sharing his loving-kindness to each of us.

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
Psalms 34:6

Verse For Thought:

Sincere And Humble HeartSometimes when you ask God for things it’s not enough. Because he wants to see how bad you really want it. How many times are you willing to ask God for the thing you want most?

Not to just ask him when you happen to randomly think about it. But when you cannot get it out of your mind so you ask for it on purpose with a sincere and humble heart over and over again.

With that type of attitude your results will be much better and effective.

Read Bible Verse:

I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
Psalms 34:4

The Verse Challenger: Find out more here.

Verse For Thought:

If you seek after the Lord for some things then what do you expect in return?

These are two things you can expect.

1. The Lord will here you. It’s great to know that God is listening. He wants to here what you have to say. Are you talking to God? If not, then why? Could that mean you’re going to the wrong place for answers. With talking to God comes a listening God.

2. The Lord will deliver you. Not only will the Lord here you but will also deliver you. God will listen to you. Now you need to listen to God. He has the answers you are looking for. With these answers comes deliverance.

Are you ready to be delivered?

Are you willing to seek the Lord?
