RECYCLING “WORTH CONSIDERING” 12/10/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
| Today’s Scripture
“I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair…He set my feet on solid ground…He has given me a new song to sing…” (Psalm 40:1-3, NLT)
|He Lifts You Up|
Have you ever felt as though you were in a pit of despair? Just as God lifted David out, God is going to lift you out. That depression is not the end. That sickness is not the end, and that addiction is not the final chapter. Where you are right now is not where you’re going to stay. There are brighter days ahead for you that are filled with favor, promotion and increase. Notice that God gives us a new song, but we have to do our part to sing that song. That means you don’t go around talking about your problems, how bad things are, or how you’re never going to make it. No, you have a song of victory! If somebody asks you how you’re doing, your attitude should be, “I refuse to dwell on the negative things that have happened to me. I’m moving forward in strength and power.” Remember, praise precedes the victory, and the Scripture tells us that God inhabits our praises. As you magnify and lift Him up, He will lift you up out of your despair. He’ll set your feet on solid ground, and you’ll move forward in joy and victory in every area of your life.
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for lifting me up to higher places. Thank You for putting a new song in my heart. I choose to sing and be grateful today for the life of blessing You have in store for me in Jesus’ name! Amen!”
In astronomy they have a new piece of equipment that finds other worlds like ours in space by using light refraction. The are now finding in our galaxy millions of planets that are at the right distance from their suns to be like earth. Jesus told us that in HIS Father’s house there were many dwelling places. In Rev. 2:26 Jesus tells us clearly that if we overcome and do as HE did that would become a part of GOD’s rule of all of HIS creation and live with HIM as HIS family.. [the world through believing that Jesus is the Son of God] [doing things that please Me] [very]
And of course, there is an option, we can choose to remain in the gravity of this world and it’s systems and the darkness around us. This world is slated in prophesy for a total recycling. All of the broken glass and cement and even the sun and moon are up for recycling into a new heavens and a new earth. Sound like this whole solar system and all of man’s space junk is up for the recycling after the testing of those who choose to love God. And as for us, we need to submit to the present recycling in Christ Jesus from being like Adam to being like Jesus prior to that day.
Yours in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
