A collect of thoughts
Liberty. Liberty is a thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others.
Encouragement. A great thing we can give is encouragement.
It is by God’s permitted trials that he works into our character his divine design.
Deep Waters and a Bubbling Brook
"Who carried up our sins himself in his own word body to the tree, that we, having died to sins, may live to righteousness; by whose scars you were healed. You were like Sheep going astray, but have now turned back to the Shepherd and Guardian of your lives." (1 Peter 2:24‑25 Diaglott)
"The sting of death is sin, and sin gains its power from the law; but, God be praised, he gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, stand firm and immovable, and work for the Lord always, work without limit, since you know that in the Lord your labour cannot be lost." (1 Cor.15:56‑58 NEB)
JESUS is the VICTORY. He has triumphed over Satan and all his evil forces. In Him we can exult, for the enemy is under our feet. JESUS says… If you do not see the victory in your situation or in history, it is because you do not yet see from My perspective. Enter into My realm with thanksgiving and into My courts with praise, even if through tears. There you will see…
At the Name of Jesus,
Why Don’t You Know?
Like Nicodemus, in the dark,
Not like Noah—in the ark;
Some cannot see the healing beams
Righteous sunlight—golden streams.
His "shining forth," do you comprehend?
Do you feel the "bursts" that he does send?
To let us know his rule has come!
Jesus Christ—that precious one.
