FAITH IN GOD      WORTH CONSIDERING    2/12/22    From Ken Smith<><

Today’s Scripture,   ( From a ministry in Texas.)
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.  Psalm 30:5, NKJV
    
Morning Is Coming,   You may have shed some tears of sadness over what has not worked out, over dreams that haven’t come to pass, over disappointments, over the loss of a loved one. The Scripture says that God is going to turn your mourning into dancing and those tears of sorrow into tears of joy. It may not have happened yet, but it’s not over. What God promised you doesn’t have an expiration date. It’s still on the way. Your morning is coming. Your baby is coming, your healing is coming, your restoration is coming, your breakthrough is coming. When it happens, it’s going to be more rewarding, more fulfilling than you ever imagined.   Too often we disqualify ourselves. We think it would have happened if we had more faith, or had not made so many mistakes, or were just good enough to deserve it. But God is full of mercy and doesn’t bless us based on our performance. What He promised is still going to come to pass. What He started, He’s going to finish. Joy is on the way.
    
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that in times of sadness, when I don’t see the way out or a loss seems too great, I can know that it’s only for a night. Thank You that the morning is coming, and the tears of sorrow will be turned to joy. I believe the dancing You promised is on the way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
    
Ken’s Comments,
What we do speaks louder than what we say.  Our testimony of our Love of Christ Jesus as our Savior in confirmed in our making Christ Jesus our LORD and in humility by coming into obedience to HIS commandments as our LORD.   In the process of my children growing up, once they were mine, I have never given up on them, regardless of the mistakes they have made, if their heart is in trying to learn to become an adult in word and deed.  One of them became a street homeless person.  I still loved her but there was nothing I could do but pray to help her.  But after she came to need help again, the past was forgotten and now even at 60 I am still her father and there for her.  So our heavenly Father is all about saving us and sanctifying us to be like HIM if we will allow that to happen in Christ Jesus as our LORD.   But He will not and can not violate our free will if we will have none of HIS influence in our lives and love this world more than Him..  So if you do not have a solid relationship with Jesus as LORD and are walking with HIM in HIS grace to make the needed changes in your life you will totally miss out on the Blessings that our Creator God has for you.  There are only two rooms in eternity.  One is with God and HIS blessings and Creation.   The other is a void of darkness where HE has not created anything.  If you come to love God in obedience you are home.  If you do not you will live for ever with your own earthly thoughts for eternity without a body with which to touch any one else and utterly alone in absolute darkness according to Holy Scripture.   I would not want this for anyone…

I am 89 now and under the best of circumstances have a life expectancy of 4.7 years left.  So what to do with the last of this life time of grace that I have been given.   So I am using some of it to write to you.  And to encourage you to give the needed time to make your peace with your Creator in Christ Jesus.   And to change from rotting out with this worlds comfortable options to leaning how to burn out for your Loving Creator.  Start by reading the Book of John, Acts and Romans.  And if you have questions, send them in and I will try to be of help.   Or go to my web site: www.OhanaChurch.Life and go to the links below: “Worth Considering” and use the search engine to look up any topic word of interest.  It will give you everything that I have written on the subject.  It is only your actions that can confirm to your Creator that you are really HIS and  mean business.  Do you really want to live with HIM in HIS new heavens created for those who love HIM and keep HIS commandments?   Read Chapters 21 & 22 of the Revelation.   As there will be no room for hypocrites and such in HIS coming Kingdom and eternal home in being with  Him in Righteousness.  The way up, is down in the Kingdom of God.  God resists the proud and gives Grace (power) to the humble.   No Power in your church?  2 Tim.3:5,   go find one with power.   It is God’s Power that will confirm God’s Truth.  God will not confirm with power that which is mixed with man’s vain traditions.  Need to know your Bible to be able to sort this all out.   You need to be able to verify all you are being taught in context.

Angel, a Jew, owner of the most famous bakery in Germany, often said: “Do you know why I’m alive today? I was still a teenager when Nazis in Germany killed Jews mercilessly. Nazis took us to Auschwitz by train. Last night in the ward was deadly cold. We were left for many days in cars without food, without beds, which means without the possibility to warm up somehow. It was snowing everywhere. The cold wind frozen our cheeks every second. There were hundreds of us on those cold, horrible nights. No food, no water, no hiding. The blood is frozen in the veins. Next to me was an elderly Jew who was very loved in my city. He was all shaking and looking terrible. I wrapped him with my hands to warm him up. Hugged him tight to give some warmth. Rub his hands, legs, face, neck. I begged him to stay alive. I cheered him up. This is how I kept this man warm all night. I myself was tired and frozen. Fingers crossed, but I kept massaging this man’s body to warm him up.    So many hours have passed. Finally the morning has come, the sun has started to shine. I looked around myself to see other people. To my horror, all I could see was frozen corpses. All I could hear was the silence of death. Frosty night killed everyone. They died of cold. Only two people survived: the old man and me. The old man survived because I didn’t let him freeze, and I survived because I made him warm.     Allow me to tell you the secret of survival in this world? When you warm the heart of others, then you will warm yourself. “When you support, strengthen and encourage others, then you receive support, strengthening and encouragement in your life.”

 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 NIV “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”   How is your report card doing on this commandment of our LORD through Apostle Paul?

 Yours, in HIS great Love and wonderful Grace & Mercy, Ken<><   www.OhanaChurch.Life
