If there is anything in the life of a truly blood bought adopted child of God (praises to the Lord Jesus Christ) that is filled with optimism, it is the privilege, joy and hope to “carry everything to God in prayer”.
Psalm 37: 3-5
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed .
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass .
At the end of this psalm David reminds us (vs 39-40) “But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.” May this bring you a blessing…♥ Streim
USA Today — December 11, 2013 report
There’s cold, and then there’s Antarctica cold. How does a frosty reading of 135.8 degrees below zero sound? Based on remote satellite measurements, scientists recently recorded that temperature at a desolate ice plateau in East Antarctica. It was the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth, though it may not get that recognition in the official record book. A NASA satellite measured that temperature in August 2010; on July 31 of this year, another bone-chilling temperature of -135.3 degrees was recorded.
James 1: 2-6 “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”
Are you in the middle of a cold, frozen tribulation period in your life? Or as my youngest daughter told me last night, a huge valley full of trials. Then, thank your Heavenly Father through the Lord Jesus for the divine magnificent love as He continually prepares us to do His work. So, worship Him with your life until He receives us into “His Eternal Glory”. Sending you prayers and blessings in spite of a tribulation of deep freeze. :) ♥Streim
