Galatians: Chapter 1 verse 3
Grace and peace to you
from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is lovely today to know the grace and peace that can only come from God and Jesus. If you have a spare minute right now, sit and receive that wonderful peace, remember – ask and you shall receive.
Taken from book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
Have you ever just sat quietly on your own to try to receive that peace that comes from God our Heavely Father. It is worth a try – after all what can you loose when you find time to sit without the tele on or the radio on or any of the family around.
It can seem quite odd
if you have never sat quietly
on your own
but it is worth a try.
If you are indoors – sit in your favourite chair, if you are outside maybe in the garden find somewhere to sit on your own. Wherever you decide to be – look around where you are and begin to feel the peace in your heart even if it is only for a few minutes.
Try to sit a little longer, all the chores of the day will not run away, they will still be there for you to do. So treat yourself to a bit of quiet time to receive the Grace and Peace of The Lord.
Have a lovely Day.
(The Peace of The Lord is beyond our understanding)
Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 7
The fear of The LORD
is the beginning of knowledge
fools despise wisdom
I think I shall ask The LORD for more knowledge and wisdom today, I do not want to be a fool, I pray that I do have the fear of The LORD and I certainly do not despise wisdom and knowledge.
For my part I know that I do love wisdom and knowledge, also I do know that I definitely need more! Thank you LORD God that you continue to fill me afresh each day, also with the knowledge and love of Jesus.
So let us just think where are we really going to get this knowledge and wisdom from……well I think it does help to read our Bible because it has been written for our learning. Therefore if we decide not to read, then we are limiting our brains to absorb knowledge and wisdom from the Apostles and followers of Jesus that are written about in the most Holy Book.
Lots of them were not clever people but with the account of their lives we can learn from their mistakes. (Hopefully we can!)
So where does the FEAR come from then?
You see we are not to be afraid of our God because He is the God of Love. Our only fear is to be that we really don’t acknowledge Him as we should and that we don’t always walk in the knowledge that He is our Heavenly Father and He Loves us even more than our earthly fathers love us.
We do fear being chastised by our earthly fathers and need to realize that our Heavenly Father does chastise us too.
So that FEAR OF THE LORD
is that we DO NOT need to be
FRIGHTENED OF THE LORD OUR GOD.
I hope you have a lovely day walking in the Love and Knowledge, Wisdom and Joy of our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Heavenly Father.
Acts: 2 verse 21
And everyone who calls on the name of The Lord will be saved.
All of us who belong to Jesus Christ were sinners who have been saved. Amen.
Have you ever thought about the above.
Never feel inferior to those around you in church because all were sinners who have been saved. Praise God that He sees us as neither male or female when we belong to Jesus. He sees us as we are, redeemed by the blood of our Lord. We are sinners no more, sin has no dominion over us, we are all equal in the sight of our Father in Heaven.
