God’s Love For You

Psalm 62.jpgTruly my soul finds rest in God, my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation, he is my fortress I will never be shaken. How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down, this leaning wall, this tottering fence? Surely they intend to topple me from lofty place, they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse. Yes, my soul, find rest in God, my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God, his is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people, pour out your hearts to him for God is our refuge.

Psalm 62:1-8

Find comfort in knowing that God is perfectly good and strong. If God was good but lack strength, we would have no stronghold in times of trouble. If he was strong, but not totally good, his massive strength could be terrifying. God’s power is a threat to all those who oppose him. Remember Jesus is the Good Shepherd and the Good Shepherd knows his sheep and his sheep knows him. (John:10) We can always feel safe and secure in the arms of the Good Shepherd. The best way to avail yourself of His protection is to trust him totally. Jesus  unfailing love surrounds all those who trust in him. So your most important task as one of his sheep is to keep on trusting in him, Jesus is the perfect Shepherd of your soul. Find rest in him alone, for he is a surrounding stronghold of unfailing love.

God Cares

Psalm 149.pngPraise the Lord, Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of his faithful people. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker, let the people of Zion be glad in their King. Let them praise his name with dancing, and make music to him with tumbrel and harp. For the Lord takes delight in his people, he crowns the humble with victory. Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.

(Psalm 149:1-5)

You were planned for God’s pleasure. The moment you were born into the world, God was there as an unseen witness, smiling at your birth. He wanted you alive, and your arrival gave him great pleasure. God did not need to create you, but he chose to create you for his own enjoyment. You exist for his benefit, his glory, his purpose, and his delight. Bringing enjoyment to God, living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life. When you fully understand this truth, you will never again have a problem with feeling insignificant.

(Section taken from the Purpose Drive Life by Rick Warren)

I am sure you as well as all of us here on earth have listen to the lies that Satan has told thru other people. Things like, you are not worth it, you won’t amount to anything, God does not love you, you are a failure, and the list of all the lies Satan has told is just that lies. You are worth it, you are a precious child of the Most High King himself who is Jesus Christ, he loves you so very much and his love for all of his children is unconditional and you do matter so much to him. His love for you is so deep that he spread out his arms to die for you and my friend that is true unconditional love, remember when someone is tell you lies, don’t believe it because Satan is the father of lies, and he does not want us to hear the truth and that is God cares.

I Will Not Be Shaken

 

Shaken

Keep me safe, my God

 for in you I take refuge.

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;

    apart from you I have no good thing.”

I say of the holy people who are in the land,

    “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”

Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.

    I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods, or take up their names on my lips.

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;

    you make my lot secure.

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;

    surely, I have a delightful inheritance.

I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;

    even at night my heart instructs me.

I keep my eyes always on the Lord.

    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Therefore, my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;

    my body also will rest secure,

because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,

    nor will you let your faithful one see decay.

You make known to me the path of life;

    you will fill me with joy in your presence,

    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

(Psalm 17)

Life is always throwing curve balls at us and we are always trying to duck from them coming at us. However, as I am learning on a daily basics if I just keep my eyes on God and focus on his words even when things go a little crazy it doesn’t seem to bother me as much. As I was read from the book of Psalm this morning the words of King David, tells us as follows,  I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will Not be Shaken. As we all know that life is never perfect and no matter how hard we try to stay on target within our own life things never seem to go the way we plan. But what we can plan is this, is to stay humble with our God, walk closely with him daily, stay in prayer with him, and even when life throws a curve ball or many balls at us as a song tells us “WE Won’t be Shaken”
