Worship Is The Key

Our time spent in worship is the key that opens the gate to God’s heart.

“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.” Psalm 100:4

When we read his word spending time and worshiping with him we open the door to God’s heart and everlasting love we build a foundation of a bond and relationship of respect in Him we want to enter his gates with high respect and thanksgiving giving all glory and thanks to him and his high courts with praise and blessing to His holy name

God Promises

Romans 16:20
And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

God promises to take all evil away and has destroyed satan banishing him as a dark angel from his gates of heaven he will be diminished in the end defeated by God and compassion and grace be gifted to you as believers of that of The Lord be with you in Christ

Washed Clean By The Blood

John 13:10
Jesus said to him, “He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.”

Us as humans are already washed clean by the blood of Jesus so we only need to wash our feet in respect of him however not all of us are clean as some have not accepted Christ as their savior and some still live in sin those are the ones we need to tell the stories of Christ to and pray for so that they can find cleanliness in God and be free

At The Feet Of Jesus

At the feet of Jesus my world changed
Everything is brighter
I see a picture of what I can be.

Revelation 19:10
And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

In other words do not worship the preacher who speaks the words instead worship the one who he teaches about

Seasons

There’s Seasons For Everything-God Listens and Hears

There’s different seasons in the year each with their own identity each with their own images of that season some of you may like one season best and better than the others my favorite is summer where it’s snuggly warm and I don’t get cold

Life is like seasons also you have your ups you have your downs you have your bads and your goods each giving you a different season in life’s pull

Bet you could find a season pattern in your very own life there’s seasons for everything not just of the years

“God has made everything beautiful for its own time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Every Season Of Life Has A Purpose-OneSoul Journey

Shane Linville

“God has made everything beautiful for its own time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Life is full of contrasts. We go through mountains, and we go through valleys. We go through successes, and we go through failures. We have wins, and we have losses.

In weather, there are four seasons. But in your life, there are dozens of different seasons. And every season of life includes both good and bad times.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 gives us a representation of different life experiences: “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace” 

Life is a combination of contrasting seasons. All sunshine and no rain make a desert. If you’re following God’s will, seeking to live your life according to the way God wants you to live, then you’ll eventually see that these experiences can have purpose and value in your life.

You may think that the only time you’re in God’s will is when you’re at church or having a quiet time. You can be in God’s will as you’re cleaning out a closet. You can be in God’s will as you’re mowing your lawn. You can be in God’s will when you move to a new location or stay right where you are. There’s a time and season for everything.

Ray Stevens sang a song called “Everything Is Beautiful” that included the lyric “Everything is beautiful in its own way.” That’s not exactly true. Everything is not beautiful. Cancer is not beautiful. Child abuse is not beautiful. War is not beautiful.

The Bible says it differently in Ecclesiastes 3:11: “God has made everything beautiful for its own time”. That’s very different from “Everything is beautiful in its own way.” Because the Bible is saying that God can take even the bad things and, in the proper season, turn them around and use them for good in the way he intends.

You may be going through a season right now that is not beautiful. Your finances look ugly. Your health looks ugly. Your marriage or a friendship looks ugly. Your future looks ugly.

But God can make something good out of it as you trust him with the pieces.

Do Not Fear But Have Courage

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Expressing that as the lord have commanded you to make good choices and to follow me, not to fear for I am with you in all you do and wherever you go that he shall not leave you or forsake you in all you do

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Reminding us again not to fear but to be strong and have courage that he is with us even in our times of fears 

2 Samuel 10:12

Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the Lord do what is good in His sight.”

We are taught to be strong not only for ourselves but also for the people and cities of or God that the lord will be pleased in that what we do and bless us with his good he sees fit for our lives that we may respect his teachings and earn respect for the courage we have gained
