God Hates Evil

Psalm: 97 verse 10
Let those who love The LORD hate evil,
for He guards the lives of His faithful ones
and delivers them from
the hand of the wicked.
Thank you LORD for your protection toward me and my family
including all those I love and pray for. Amen.
Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
Today is a good day to not do anything that is evil, that is let us try not to do any bad thing today. I know that it is very difficult sometimes not to use swear words, or to shout at our loved ones or to make someone cry! Let us try to be kind today. Let us be kind to those that The Lord brings before us. It may be a stranger that we meet while shopping or travelling on our holiday.
If we can help someone without expecting anything in return that is good.
Anything that is good is not evil in the sight of God our Heavenly Father.
God our Heavenly Father protects us wherever we go i.e. down the street, or next door to neighbours, on holiday, or in the workplace just about anywhere. But we loose that protection if we go and join in where evil lurks. God will chastise us, remember He is our Heavenly Father – we are His children, so like our earthly Father would choose to chastise us so will He. (Not a good feeling if we have done wrong when we belong to the Kingdom of God).
There we are then – just a thought that we may like to consider, so that we can continue to have the protection for ourselves and our families. Today and always.
* God Bless You Today – Have a lovely Joyful day *
We are not alone.
John: Chapter: 16 verse 31
……..Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.
As Christians we know that God our Father is with us.
When Jesus went back to Heaven He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us – to teach, comfort and also to fellowship with us.
Where The Holy Spirit is, there also are The Father and The Son.
Just think how blessed we are – we are never alone!
From ‘Drink from the Cup’ book., by J.M.R.Larman.
So if you are feeling lonely today, stop and think for a while, make a cup of coffee, tea or a favourite drink. Then sit quietly and thank The Lord for all the Blessings that He has allowed and is giving us each day.
Let us think do we have food and shelter, are we blessed with a Husband, Wife and children or good friends or even a special Pet that we can rely on and talk to when we need help or a shoulder to cry on.
Well we may have so many Blessings that is is difficult to count them all and yet………we still feel lonely.
Why oh! why do we feel like that ?……
While we sit quietly let us remember that Jesus must have felt very lonely at times when people did not understand Him. Sometimes He went off to a special place to pray on His own to His Father in Heaven until He felt better about things…….Jesus who’s Father is in Heaven is also our Father who we can go to at any time of the day or night if we are a Christian.
So let us try not to be lonely today, talk to The Holy Spirit and ask Him to comfort you and guide you out of that feeling of loneliness into the Joy of The Lord. Maybe put on some cheerful music – remember we need the Spirit of Praise for the Spirit of Heaviness. Then the spirit of loneliness will begin to go away and we can get on with our day in a cheerful way.
