A WRITING!

Today I am sharing a few Bible verses about the renewing of strength.

  1. Sources of renewal:
  2. The Holy Spirit—

    Titus 3:5New King James Version (NKJV)

    not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,

  3. Waiting upon the Lord—

    Isaiah 40:30-31New King James Version (NKJV)

    30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
    And the young men shall utterly fall,
    31 But those who wait on the Lord
    Shall renew their strength;
    They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
    They shall run and not be weary,
    They shall walk and not faint.

    . Washing from sin—-

    Psalm 51:10New King James Version (NKJV)

    10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
    And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

    More verses about the objects of strength:

    a/ Youthfulness—-

    Psalm 103:5New King James Version (NKJV)

    Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
    So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

    b/ Peoples—

    Isaiah 41:1New King James Version (NKJV)

    Israel Assured of God’s Help

    41 “Keep silence before Me, O coastlands,
    And let the people renew their strength!
    Let them come near, then let them speak;
    Let us come near together for judgment.

    c/ Inward man—

    2 Corinthians 4:16New King James Version (NKJV)

    Seeing the Invisible

    16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

    d/ New man—

    Colossians 3:10New King James Version (NKJV)

    10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,

    e/ Mind—

    Romans 12:1-2New King James Version (NKJV)

    Living Sacrifices to God

    12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Evening Thoughts!

I thank God,

for men like

the Apostle Paul,

and the twelve Disciples,

who preached the truth;

Then came false teachers,

who led many away,

from the true church,

until men like

Martin Luther studied the Bible

and found the truth,

and how the false church

was getting rich,

from their selling

their false salvation.

Thank you Father,

for all those,

who like Martin Luther,

study and share the truth,

that salvation is by faith

and not by works,

as many still,

are being led astray,

by preaching false doctrine.

So let us share this truth,

found in Ephesians 2:7-10.

Ephesians 2:7-10King James Version (KJV)

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

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

AUGUST

Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

Rom 11:36
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

The month of August,

has just begun,

what a beautiful day,

it is filled with sun.

The robins hop,

hop across my lawn,

they have been there,

since the break of dawn;

they fly to a  tree,

and feed their young,

and return to the ground,

another feeding cycle begun.

Nature is so nice,

so nice to behold in August,

seeing it’s flowers,

red, yellow and gold.

God created August,

such a pretty month,

for you and me,

so let’s say thank you,

thank you Father,

for this blessing,

and every blessing now,

and for eternity.
