It’s the Little Things

1 Corinthians 10 31Every expectant mother anticipates the day she will meet her child for the first time. It is indeed an amazing moment when she first gazes into the eyes of her newborn babe. First-time moms have many visions in their heads about what to expect in those early days. Glossy magazine covers and colorful pages are filled with smiling mothers who look well put together and happy, dressed-up babies that do nothing but coo and giggle. There are many special moments like these ones, but the reality is that new moms will often spend a lot of time calming a crying infant, changing dirty diapers, washing stained clothes and milky baby bottles, and cleaning up after the baby. It may not be glamorous work, but it is still important work that moms should try to do with a joyful heart and for the glory of God. (Even if it is a challenge at three in the morning!)

Faith Child – He diverted the enemy’s fiery darts

On 2 0 July, 2014 we read of Hamas complaining about Isreal  that

‘Their God Changes The Paths Of Our Rockets In Mid-Air’

How often has the Lord deflected and saved us from  the fiery  darts of the enemy of our soul, without our knowing it this past year?

May we be mindful when we feel threatened or insecure that The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.” Psalm 37:4

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. Psalm 91:7

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4

He who keeps Israel will keep us too.

Let us praise the Lord for His keeping and protecting power in our lives, for the times when we have not even acknowledged His goodness and mercy and He has kept us from evil.

Let us rejoice with thanksgiving. Amen.

Nuggets – The Lord Our Maker

The Lord Our Maker
“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.” (Psalm 95:6)

Psalms 95–100 seem to form a unit with several common themes running through them, all involving praise to the Lord.

One of these major themes is the recognition of the Lord as Maker of heaven and Earth. For example, consider Psalm 95:5: “The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.” Thus, God made the earth, including both land and sea. But He also made the heavens! “For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens” (Psalm 96:5).

Higher and far more complex than any planet of the solar system, or any star in the heavens, are the living organisms found only on planet Earth—especially human beings—and He made these too. “Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture” (Psalm 100:3).

It is significant that these verses all emphasize the activities of God as Maker, rather than as Creator. In the first chapter of Genesis, both types of activity are stressed, the account finally concluding with the summary: “All his work which God created and made” (Genesis 2:3).

The two types of work are almost synonymous when referring to the divine activity, but not quite (otherwise “created and made” would be redundant). Specifically, the three acts of true creation in Genesis are the creation of the physical elements of the cosmos, the entity of biological life, and the spiritual image of God in man (Genesis 1:1, 21, 27). These entities God simply called into being, ex nihilo, by His omnipotent Word.

Everything else He made, or formed or let be, out of the three basic entities that were specially created. He is both Creator and Maker of all things, and we should worship Him as such. HMM

SIH’s Think On These Things: Ephesians 6:4

SIH TOTT ICON“Reflections Of His Grace”

“That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”

 

 

The Grace Of Authority/Submission (6:1-9)

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

Nuggets – The Promise

The Promise
“And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” (2 Peter 3:4)

Has Christ forgotten His promise? After His resurrection, He returned to heaven to wait “until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3:21). Ever since the primeval promise in Eden (Genesis 3:15), God’s inspired prophets have kept assuring His people that He would come as Savior of the world and again as everlasting King, removing the curse of sin and death and bringing in everlasting life and righteousness.

But the centuries have come and gone, age after age, and the world continues to decay, growing worse and worse. With global pollution, disease pandemics, ever-increasing crime, and countless other intractable problems, there may be nothing left if He doesn’t come soon!

Has He forgotten His promise? No! says Peter, in this very same chapter. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

He has not yet returned because there are not yet enough who have “come to repentance”—that is, whose minds and hearts have turned away from the world system and have been renewed through faith in Christ as Creator, Savior, and Lord of all. We need not despair but simply “account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation” (2 Peter 3:15), seeking to lead people to Him until He comes.

His promise is sure, and one day He will return indeed! Therefore, Peter concludes, “we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).

Faith Child – Are you just re-cycling?

Are you  doing, doing and doing in your strength? Are you tired of doing that – re-cycling? You may be living under the law.

Listen how you may break through the cycle of motivation, condemnation, and rededication.

God is not expecting you to live a Christ-like life rather Christ wants to live through you.

Break free in the freedom and grace of the Lord and live free!

Here is a bonus – an interview of  who is Baz Rijksen?
