Today’s Thought

Music has always been such a big part of my life that when I’m thinking about a certain problem or circumstance a song will pop into my mind.  Some of the reasons I miss singing some of the great “well seasoned” hymns in church is because of the messages of salvation, healing and restoration they carried. I trust we will never forget those hymns that we were raised on.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Sitting here at my computer I’m still having a lot of pain from shingles.  But, as I was thinking about putting up with this discomfort for a few days, I thought about the pain Jesus endured at the whipping post and again at the cross.  I didn’t choose my pain, but Jesus chose His, so we could have healing and deliverance.  Let’s take some time today to reflect on what Jesus did for us through the pain He suffered.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

I’m sure we all at one time or another have heard the saying, “Why do bad things happen to good people”.  Well, I don’t have all the answers, and the older I get sometimes I feel I know less and less.  But, to borrow a line from the Andrea Crouch song “Through It All”, it says ♫ I’ve learned to trust in Jesus, I’ve learned to trust in God. ♫  Just remember our trials will only come to make us strong.  God bless!

Todays Thought

I Peter 5: 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.  When you are doing your best to do the will of God, you can expect the devil to attack any way he can.  It’s important for us to realize we have authority through the blood of Jesus to resist him.  So don’t let the devil “devour” you, but resist him and go forward in victory.  God bless! 

Today’s Thought

As I was lying in bed last night getting ready to fall asleep, I was singing some songs in my head.  One that I was singing is not a new one, but one that still carries the same message today.  That song is It Is No Secret (What God Can Do).  How often is it hard to believe that God can do for us what we have seen Him do for others?  Well to God the color of our skin, whether we are big or small, rich or poor, etc. doesn’t matter.  What He has done for others, He’ll do for us.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ Faith in God will move a mighty mountain, Faith in God will calm the troubled sea, Faith will make the desert like a fountain, Faith will bring the victory. ♫  I remember singing this chorus in church years ago.  It still amazes me that after we have seen God move mountains for us we can stumble over something that as we look back seems trivial.  Nothing is trivial with God,  I Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him, He careth for you.  So let’s cast everything that concerns us on the Lord today.  He’s ready to meet every need.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ Glory, glory, hallelujah………….His truth is marching on. ♫  It doesn’t matter how much the secular society we live in tries to eliminate everything there is to know about Christianity, it will never stifle the truth.  Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever –  Hebrews 13:8  So let’s continue to proclaim the truth of God’s Word as it will never fail, it keeps marching on.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

I’ve seen several times lately the quote; “Instead of complaining about what we don’t have,  let’s start praising God for what we do have”.  How often do we neglect to thank God for His many blessings in our lives because we are complaining about the things we want or even need.  If we would take the time to count our blessings we wouldn’t have time to complain.  The chorus God Is So Good was running through my mind this morning. ♫ God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He’s so good to me.♫  Take some time today to realize just how good God is.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ God answers prayer in the morning, God answers prayer at noon, God answers prayer it the evening, So keep your heart in tune. ♫  It doesn’t matter where we live or what time zone we are in, God is always available to hear our prayers if we are in tune with Him.  Sometimes He answers immediately, sometimes it seems like He hasn’t even heard, but He always answers in His timing.  So hold on, God has heard your prayer and He will answer.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

There’s a saying, “God said it, I believe it and that settles it”.  Well, if God said it, it doesn’t matter if we believe it or not, it’s still settled.  I’ve seen so many lately that have done there best to twist scripture to fit the lifestyle they choose to live.  God has intended for us to live a life of holiness that conforms to His Word.  I’ve often heard it said that if you have to question whether something is right or wrong you are probably better off not doing it.  So, God said it and that settles it for me, how about you?  God bless!
