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
Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself (* laid aside His privileges) , taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
There’s just something about that name. Jesus… Jesus…Jesus Have a blessed, beautiful and Christ filled Sunday. ♥ Streim (photo credit:MMS Photos/ForHis Majesty)
