LEAN ON GOD.............AND GOD ALONE!

LEAN ON GOD.............AND GOD ALONE!

Find your warmth and care in the loving arms of the Lord for He will ever comfort you. His love for His children is enormous and unceasing. He will dry your tears and replace your sorrow with joy. He shall lift you up and shall be your strength in times of trouble.

I will lift  up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Psalm 121:1-2

Where are we to turn for aid in the spiritual war in which all the children of God are engaged? Turn to the Lord. He is your help. The creator of heaven and earth who holds power over every living thing will protect His child from every spiritual harm.

Worry. Anxiety. Fear. Timidity. This is the way of the old man. Yet we, as believers, have been created anew to a heavenly life and spirit both bold and courageous. No longer need we fear at all, for in the Lord we have become so much more than conquerors! If God is for us-and He most certainly is-there is nothing to stand victorious against us. So fear not, O you redeemed, but rejoice in the mighty arm of the Lord!

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Romans 8:28

All things. Every circumstance. The entire realm of possible events. All of these conspire toward a single goal: the good of the Redeemed! Every last detail in the universe works together for the benefit of God's children!

Of course God is able-with the unsurpassed power of His mighty hand-to guard our souls for all eternity! No matter the storm that assails us, we need never fear our eternal destiny will be capsized in a sea of torment.

The Lord is ever your protector! To be kept by the power of Christ from the power of our own corruption and Satan's temptation, that we may appear without blame in the great day!

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 

                             Psalm 27:5

Impregnable is the bulwark of defense the Lord has provided in the regenerative blood of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ! 

Take great courage and comfort in the sure bastion of the Lord's sovereign plan. He cannot be thwarted. He cannot be dismayed. His chosen people can never be trampled or destroyed. 

Be strong in passion for this truth and proceed in your battle boldly! 

You are called to righteousness and God's power will be your power in these things. 

Christ will ever sustain you in spite of your weakness! 

Trust in Him. Lean on His might. Throw yourself into the redemptive mercy of His hands and seek not the power to remain of your own might. Have faith in the Lord for He shall save you in that final day!

The High King of Heaven cares for His people! Trust in His longing to do good for His children! He is faithful. He is good. He is loving. And in the end, even His children who suffer earthly poverty shall be blessed with all the riches the heavenly throne affords!

God will help us to persevere. He would never give us something that we cannot do through Him. As partakers of Christ, we have the privilege of having Christ's righteousness put on us. Then God sees Christ's righteousness instead of our sin.

As Christians, we have the privilege to partake of the beautiful peace through the love of our merciful God. Praise Him! Christ has conquered sin and death! Indeed, let not our hearts be troubled, but let us take joy in the glory of Christ.

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 

                                                                                                                                                                   1 John 4:10

Our love for God cannot save us, but His love for us can. It is because of His love that we are given His grace to enter the kingdom of heaven 

                                      Ephesians 2:8

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 

                                                        James 1:17
 
Absolutely every good thing comes from our Father who tends to all our needs according to His purpose. Amazingly, our gracious Father never changes, but remains the same through all eternity. May we continue to give thanks to Him who pours forth His love and peace to all who believe.

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him. 

                                                                                                                                                     Hosea 14:4

Praise be to God that He, in the midst of our depravity, drew us to Him with the sweet chords of His melodious grace. We were wretched and iniquitous, yet He chose to love us freely. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord, provider of our salvation and promise of hope!

Thank you for Your endless love!

It is only through your grace that We can be granted eternal life.

Though we presently toil under a curse, sowing in tears upon this earth, it is in our hope of heavenly promise that we bask, joyful and content. Our earthly suffering is for but a moment! And truly-it is even now working for us who believe, a far and exceeding weight of glory!

Take comfort and love Christ.
