Peace With God Through Faith: Romans 5:1-5

Romans 5:1-5

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

The believer’s hope rests in the Triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Our heavenly Father knows each of us by name (Isaiah 43:1). Our Savior keeps every divine promise (2 Corinthians 1:20). And the Holy Spirit assures us that we are secure in Christ, both in this life and in the one to come.

Prayer Through The Holy Spirit.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill my heart with Your holy gifts. Let my weakness be penetrated with Your strength this very day that I may fulfill all the duties of my state conscientiously, that I may do what is right and just. Let my charity be such as to offend no one, and hurt no one’s feelings; so generous as to pardon sincerely any wrong done to me. Assist me, O Holy Spirit, in all my trials of life, enlighten me in my ignorance, help me in my doubts, strengthen me in my weakness, help me in all my needs, protect me in temptations and console me in afflictions. Graciously hear me Holy Spirit, and pour Your light into my heart, my soul, and my mind.

In this I pray, Amen

Testing Your Faith: James 1: 2-6, 16-18

James 1:2-6, 16-18

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.

16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.

1 John 5:1-5

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God

Ephesians 5:8

for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.

How Strong Is Your Faith? James 1:2-8 

James 1:2-8

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Refuge in Life: Psalm 62:5-8

Psalm 62:5-8

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
    for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory;
    my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your heart before him;
    God is a refuge for us.
 Psalm 112:4 When darkness overtakes the godly, light will come bursting in

God’s Garden

Remembering my Aunt Sue today. She is with the Lord in heaven. God let me spend time with her, my 2nd Mother before she passed. My Aunt Sue read the Holy Bible from cover to cover she would exclaim with such joy.  There is a place in my heart that is only reserved for her. May God give strength to my cousin her daughter, Marjorie and to all children and grandchildren. Especially, my dearest cousin Denise who ministers to me about the purpose life and death. She is such a humble Christian.  But My Aunt touched the heart of so many people. She was a Woman of God on this earth.

God of our ancestors in faith, by the covenant made on Mount Sinai, You taught Your people to strengthen the bonds of family through faith, honor, and love.  God of faithfulness, in Your wisdom You have called my Aunt Sue out of this world.  YOU have released her from the bonds of sin, and welcome her into Your Presence, so the she may enjoy eternal light and peace and be raised up in glory with all Your saints. Grant that I may see my dearest Aunt Sue again in the brightness of Your everlasting glory. I ask this through Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.  In this I pray, Amen.

 

 

God looked around his garden,
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you,
And lifted you to rest;
God’s garden must be beautiful-He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain;
He knew you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered,
“Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone,
For a part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

God, The Fathers’  Love: John 14:16-17

John 14:16-17

16 And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.
