The more time I am blessed to read/study God’s Holy Word; I realize His love, grace and mercy are endless; yet He is a Righteous Judge who keeps His promises. Studying the OT prophets this is evident. We are living in a time like no other and the need to share the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is so important. 2 Timothy 4:1-5 “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” NKJV Falling on my knees, weeping and thanking our God for His love, mercy and grace ♥ Streim
James 1: 5-6 “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.”
It is my prayer that we; as forgiven, born again into a new life by the blood of Jesus Christ will surrender, submit and relinquish the rights of “self” to the Holy Almighty Holy God of heaven. ♥ Streim ** (edit) I must add that I do not, in any way, stand by Mr. Packer’s theology. This quote is quite meaningful. We must understand that our God is completely holy and sovereign, and only by surrendering to Him can we ever find true Godly wisdom. I hope no one judges this blog based on a quote in a post. Blessings to all who seek the Lord first in their lives.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-6 “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away;” May whatever season you’re experiencing in your life, may it lead you to God the Father through the Savior Jesus Christ. ♥ Streim
