I am thankful for God’s peace

In Isaiah Chapter 26, verse 3, it is written:  You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You because he trusts in You. [ESV Bible]

Trouble lets a lot of things through the door–uncertainty, fear of the future, pain. Go straight to God, He is your true help, always available, He knows all the details of your life, and He can give you His peace. His peace is different than ours. It’s better, and once you experience it, nothing else can substitute for it. You’ll know it when it happens, because it will feel like something inside of you has changed. It’s a feeling of protection and strength that you know isn’t coming from you.

This Scripture says to stay your mind on God. How can we do that? Read the Bible and pray, it’s as simple as that. When the harsh thoughts start creeping in, take spiritual action! Go back to your Bible and pray, keep your mind full of God, and then you will feel His power. You will start to understand how He can work inside of you, giving you confidence that you can cope because He will sustain you!

The foundation of this blog is the Scripture found in Matthew Chapter 28, verses 18-20: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” 

This Scripture was my inspiration  because it told me that God will be with me through everything, no exceptions, through every trial in my life, and I can face even death with the security of knowing He’s there.

God is worthy of your trust, He is faithful, and He will lift you up! Come to Him with everything in your life, and He will be your shelter and your help!

In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, the words of Jesus inspire

In Luke Chapter 10, verses 25-37, the Parable of the Good Samaritan begins:

On one occasion, an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

“What is written in the Law?” He [Jesus] replied. “How do you read it?”

He answered: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’, and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

In reply Jesus said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper, ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

“Which of the three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

The expert in the Law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
