God is good!

“So it shall be, when your son asks you in time to come, saying, What is this? that you shall say to him, By strength of hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”

Exodus 13:14

What aN amazing thing for us to share, how God brought us out of the world. He saved us from death and eternity in Hell! We all have a testimony to share of how the LORD saved us!

“Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!”

Psalm 32:11

Take a moment and contemplate the fact YOU ARE SAVED! That should bring you great joy that one day we will be with the LORD in person!

“I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND OF JACOB? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”

Matthew 22:32

Today, let us rejoice in the LORD and share His love with everyone and anyone! As believers, no matter what our situation is, we should be the most joyful people around sharing, how good the LORD is. Have a blessed day!

Shabbat Shalom

Love, don’t judge

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”

John 13:34

The LORD really wants us to love people, not judge people! One of the problems we struggle with is we fall into being judgmental. Take a moment and think about how many times you judge throughout the day, your spouse, parents or coworkers. Let’s love, not judge!

“By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:35

Today, our desire should be to reflect the love of the LORD to those around us! We can really change the dynamic at home, work , school or anywhere we are if we reflect the love of the LORD!

“And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.”

Psalm 90:17

Let’s reflect the love of the LORD today and allow His beauty to be seen in all that we say and do! Have a blessed day sharing the love and beauty of the LORD!

Talk about the LORD

“And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, This is done because of what the LORD did for me when I came up from Egypt.”

Exodus 13:8

We need to tell the story of what the LORD has done. WHY? One: so we don’t forget and Two: to encourage others!

“The LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad.”

Psalm 126:3

The LORD has given us a new day filled with His mercies! Most importantly, He has given us salvation: He saved us from Egypt (the world).

“Blessed be the LORD, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation.”

Psalm 68:19

We all have a lot that we can talk about today, but the best thing we can talk about is the LORD and His salvation. So let’s talk about the LORD today and the amazing things He has done! Have a blessed day!

Sometimes you have to die

“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it will produce much grain.”

John 12:24

Jesus had to die so we can live, just like taking dry seeds that are “dead” and then planted to produce more! The same goes for us; in many situations we have to die, give up having things our way!

“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”

John 12:25

When we have disagreements or differences of opinion, realize no one wins until someone gives up and dies to self! Don’t push so hard to get your way. Often times giving up and giving in gives you a win! Don’t assume that it’s always the other person who needs to give up.

“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.”

John 12:26

Remember, Jesus is perfect in every way. He is never wrong! So if He gave up His life so we can live, I believe in many situations we can give up our lives and opinions too, we don’t always have to be right and often times we’re not! Have a blessed day giving up our lives to the LORD!

The LORD can use you!

“But every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, than you shall break its neck. And all the firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem.”

Exodus 13:13 NKJB

Every donkey was to be redeemed by a lamb! Who’s the donkey (jackass) so to speak? We are! Remember, donkeys aren’t kosher and honestly, neither are we. We are unclean also; the only thing that cleans us is JESUS!

“Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.”

Psalm 31:5 NKJB

Even though the donkey was unclean, let’s look how mightily God has used them! Abraham used a donkey to bring Isaac to Mount Moriah, God used one to talk to Balaam and Jesus rode one into Jerusalem, to name a few! So, if God will use a donkey, He can and will use you and me!

“Rejoice with all your heart, daughter of Tziyon! Shout out loud, daughter of Yerushalayim! Your king is coming to you. He is righteous, and He is victorious. Yet He is humble – He’s riding on a donkey, yes, on a lowly donkey’s colt.”

Zechariah 9:9 CJB

Today, we all have a lot to rejoice about; we are saved! So, let’s shout out about the good news of salvation! We all may be donkeys, a bunch of jackasses, but the LORD still can and does use us mightily! Have a blessed day shouting loudly about the LORD!
