JOY IN THE MORNING

His Joy is that He finally will come to fulfill His promise to save you from yourself if you turn to HIM in Faith.

My Joy is that He chose to come for me. He comes for all those who take the time to seek the Truth with “all our heart, mind and strength.” For if you choose to seek Him you will find Him and He will give you faith and strength for this journey called life.

And when this life ends He will be there to greet you if you know HIM as your Savior. HE will wipe away all your tears, put His arms around you and show you the new home He has made especially for you to enjoy for eternity.

Why, because He promised! And God never lies.

May you find joy in the assurance of your Salvation. To know in your heart of hearts beyond a shadow of doubt, that you know Him as your Savior. That you will finally understand that your name, which has been pre-written in eternity past into Gods book of Life has now been transcribed into the Lambs Book of Life by your acceptance of Christ’s death on the Cross for your sins.

Christ’s death in exchange for your death…He died that you might have ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN. As a Believer in Yeshua-Jesus as Lord you now have a partner to help you live life. The Holy Spirit will then reside in you. He will give you a new heart, a new conscience, a newly energized soul and a new will.

So live your life for Him. Live life boldly in His strength. You will not fail. He will set you before all people as a living stone that is part of the True Church, the Ecclesia, the called out ones so you can point the way to the glorious future that awaits all believers in Yeshua the SON of GOD.

May the Almighty God, The Ancient of Days, the Lord God of Israel and His Church guard your heart and mind and soul, by the power of His indwelling Holy Spirit!

May the Holy Angels sent to protect you encircle your life, protecting all those you love and cherish as you go forth and follow the command of Yeshua to take your place in the Battle of the Ages.

The Battle for Truth….His Truth…Till He Comes Again.

This is the Promise of the Living God to all His children…to all those precious in His sight…that He is still on the Throne and He is involved in every detail of your life. He knew you before the foundations of the earth were formed, and He called you into existence in eternity past. He will hold you in the palm of His hand until the day He takes you home to be with HIM in the future.

We are creatures of time…created by God for eternity… Today we live from one God Moment to another…in eternity we will live IN THE MOMENT… forever with God. May HIS Joy and HIS Shalom fill all the days of your life as you live to fulfill HIS purposes for your life.

My Daily Prayer:

“There is no me only Him. I have no will but to do His will only. I trust not in myself but in His Love and care for me.

I receive all things from His hand and am glad and rejoice in His mercies that are new every day I live here.

I am yours and you are mine….and yet I will wait upon you….I will be still and listen…keep me humble…..guide me….uphold me…not my will but yours be done through me.”

EVEN SO …COME LORD JESUS.

God Has Given Us HIS SON

As long as Jesus is one of many options, He is not an option.
As long as you can carry your burdens alone, You don’t need a burden bearer.
As long as your situation brings you no grief, You will receive no comfort.
As long as you can take Him or leave Him, You may as well leave Him, because He won’t be taken half-heartedly.

But, when you mourn, when you get to the point of sorrow for your sins, when you admit that you have no other option but to cast all your cares on Him, and when there is truly no other name that you can call on, then cast all your cares on Him, for He is waiting in the midst of your storm.

He is preparing a place for you. He is the architect of your heavenly home,its builder and interior decorator too. He knows your hearts desires, your favorite colors, flowers, your favorite views.

He chose you before the foundations of the world were made.
He knows how to surprise you. He knows what you’ve always longed for.
And in His infinite care for you, He is preparing the perfect place for you.

For the Joy set before Me

If you are familiar with the Word of God, you will notice that the quote above is incorrect. I have changed one very important word.

The word is “Him”, (Jesus)… and the phrase should read “For the Joy set before Him …He endured the Cross”.

God has many attributes of which Omniscience is one. This attribute means God knows the past, present and future. We live our lives based on yesterday. We know nothing of today until we live it, and we do not know anything about tomorrow. In fact the future is like a mystery play or novel.

The author has written a plot that unfolds with each curtain or chapter.

When we read the story, it takes us through all our emotions as we become involved in the characters. We too are living a story. Like the characters in the play or novel we too have a beginning and ending. Ours is a story with pages and chapters that represent the seasons of our lives.

We think we can control the novel by taking charge, making decisions, planning out our lives. But, if you have learned from your past experiences; you will understand that all you can do is plan in pencil. Someone else has the eraser.

Our future is a mystery to us, but not to God. God has created everything, including time. He stands outside of time, above time and sees everything at the same time. That is why He knows your beginning and ending.

Your life story is no mystery to Him and He does not want it to be a mystery to you either. So He gave you a book to read. As with any creation the product comes with a book of instruction that we must follow.

You know what that is. It is no different than the owners’ manual you received with your new car, television or washing machine. This book called the Bible answers all your questions by the one who created you. It unveils the mystery play or novel in which your life and death are written into.

The Bible is the history of mankind’s past, present and future. It has been called HIS-Story, because it was written about Him. Your existence is not about you…it is about HIM. But look closely for you are written in the story as well. Your story is about your individual journey. The book gives you clear directions on how to find your way to two distinctly different places.

YOUR CHOICES will determine your forever home.

Has JESUS Paid for your Flight HOME?

Do you love trips, especially those that go to exotic places? The world is huge with so many destinations and cultures. We could go to Africa, it’s really a big zoo filled with animals to see.

Or, to Europe, where you can see architecture hundreds of years old and practice multiple languages and study history as depicted through the art of the masters.

Or, to Brazil where you can visit the Rainforest. It is a special place containing every color and combination of colors ever created by God on the feet and beaks and wings of exotic birds and creatures. The Rainforest contains Gods color palette that He used to color our world.

Or to Asia with its mountains and valleys and its people steeped in the supposed oldest place of human wisdom and traditions in the world.

Or to the Middle East, where you will find the cradle of civilization, the hotbed of man’s religion and the Birthplace of God.

The Middle East is a sandbox where men for ages have played like children digging into the sand at nighttime. In the moonlight they look for clues to the meaning of life. As they dig they find skeletons of people like themselves with shovels in their hands.

People frozen in time holding shovels with bony fingers. They are former seekers covered by the sands of time, seeking but never finding their answers to the questions that haunted them while alive.

These people continued to dig intensely, never noticing the howling winds that built up the sand around them until they too were buried in the sand and became part of the mystery of time.

Taking a trip to any of the latter places will take planning, study, investigation, and research. You will want to know the culture, review the places of interest, and even learn the language if possible. You have to admit taking a trip to those places would be an adventure of a lifetime.

But there is another trip you will be taking. It is much greater than any of those. In a very real sense this trip will take you back to your future. You will be going back in time to when time didn’t even exist. Back further into the very mind of God.
