ASSURANCE FOR THE SOUL 3

Good day my friends! It is a great privilege to share these few words of Scripture with you and today finishes our brief look at Assurance for the Soul. I hope you enjoyed it and was blessed!

2 Co.5:17; 1Jn.3:14-22– Assurance of a changed life!

Romans 15:12-13; Phil.4:7.

Romans 15:12-13

King James Version (KJV)

 12And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.

13Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. We have assurance of joy and inner peace! Another step in the ladder of assurance is the step of victorious living. 1 John 5:4-5–

4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? We have the Holy Spirits testimony for assurance. [ Romans 8:15-16 ]. When we are with Christ we have absolute assurance of eternal life! [ Romans 8:33-39; 2 Timothy 1:12 ]. Romans 8:38-39–

38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

AWAKE!

Awake, my mind awake! Meditate on God;

His words and grace so freely given.

Awake, my eyes awake! See God’s gift of salvation.

Awake, my ears awake! Hear His words of comfort given.

Awake, my tongue awake! Proclaim His truth of redemption.

Awake, my mouth awake! Sing His praise and glory forever.

Awake, my heart awake! Be filled with God’s spirit.

Awake, my arms awake! Embrace His mercy forever.

Awake, my hands awake! Serve Him in His awesome creation.

Awake, my knees awake! Bow in prayer with humble adoration.

Awake, my legs awake! Stand firm with great devotion.

Awake, my feet awake! Follow the steps Jesus trod before us.

Awake, my soul awake! Praise God for His love and favor.

Rejoice, my being rejoice! Dwell with Christ forever.

ASSURANCE FOR THE SOUL 2

800-thanksgiving2

I am sitting and thinking about love, how that if added the love of all humanity together it would not be as great as the love of God. Here are some verses of Scripture about the matchless love of God.  Romans 5:5; 1 John2:5; 1John4:9; Jude 1:21; Romans 8:38-39.

38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

SURROUNDED BY ANGELS!

SURROUNDED BY ANGELS

As sometimes we feel alone

Remember we are surrounded by angels,

like those around God’s throne.

When we feel helpless,

We are surrounded by angels,

God has sent to bless.

When we need a message

from a gospel tune,

We are surrounded by angels

in our room,

and when we need encouragement

remember, we are surrounded by angels,

Glorious Angels God has sent.

Yes, when we feel gloom,

Don’t forget,

We are surrounded by angels,

surrounded by angels in our room.

A WRITING!

AS I HAVE SHARED BEFORE,

I LOVE LOOKING THROUGH’

THROUGH OLD HYMN BOOKS.

TODAY AS I WANDERED THROUGH THE PAGES,

THESE TWO VERSES FROM THE HYMN,

“TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE”

STOOD PLAINLY OUT TO ME;

THESE ARE THOSE VERSES,

AND I TRUST THEY WILL SPEAK TO YOU

AND BLESS YOU TOO!

” TAKE MY LIPS AND LET THEM BE,

FILLED WITH MESSAGES FROM THEE;

TAKE MY INTELLECT,

AND USE EVERY POWER AS THOU SHALT CHOOSE.

TAKE MY LOVE: MY LORD,

I POUR AT THY FEET IT’S TREASURES STORE;

TAKE MYSELF, AND I WILL BE EVER,

ONLY,ALL FOR THEE”.

~WINSTON STAPLES

JUST THINKING!

I SIT HERE GAZING OUT MY WINDOW AT THE HILLS ACROSS THE STREAM AND SEE THEIR BEAUTY AS THE BREEZE SLOWLY ROCKS THE TREES BACK AND FORTH IN A HYPTONIZING MOTION. YES GOD CREATED ALL I SEE, AND DON’T SEE, HEAR, SMELL AND TASTE; HE DESERVES OUR HONOUR AND PRAISE FOR WHAT HE IS DOING AND DONE. HE PROVIDED A WAY TO SALVATION BY SACRIFISING HIS ONLY SON ON CALVARY’S TREE BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU AND ME. YES, ALL CREATION SHALL CLAP THEIR HANDS AND SAY HE IS LORD!

PSALMS 121 AND 150.

Psalm 121King James Version

121 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.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Psalm 150King James Version

150 Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

SO MANY!

70 PLUS WINT!

So many cry out,

so many are hurting,

so many homeless,

so many flirting;

so many hungry,

so many sad,

so many looking for good,

so many only find bad.

So many want good health,

so many are poor,

so many want prosperity,

so many are not sure;

So many seek a good trail,

so many find paths not trod,

so many get lost,

so many need God.

So many are searching for Heaven,

only one way is found,

that way is Jesus

so many need Him,

so many He has found;

So many give HIM Glory,

so many will see HIM crowned,

so many will bow  to Him,

so many confess He is Lord,

so many will see their King of Kings,

and forever serve their Lord of Lords.

HEAVENLY THOUGHTS

As I lay here,

with these words running,

through my mind,

” O, come, Angel band,

come and around me stand,

bare me away,

on your snowy wings

to my immortal home.”

One day,

At my Heavenly Father’s timing,

I will be ushered into Heaven

by the sound of Angel’s wings,

a Heavenly choir singing,

as my feet will touch down

on the streets of gold,

to live forever,

and never grow old.

Yes, in this land of cloudless skies,

no pain, no heartaches and no cry’s.

Now, another song floods my soul,

” What a day that will be,

when the face of Jesus,

we shall see.”

AUGUST MOON!

There is an August moon rising,

Rising in the sky,

There is an August moon rising,

It’s beams lighten the sky,

O, what a beautiful sight,

As the August moon is rising,

Illuminating.the night.

There is an August moon rising,

Peaking through the pines,

Wishing all a beautiful night,

There is an August moon rising,

Showing God’s wonderful creation.

There is an August moon rising,

Thank you Heavenly Father,

Thank you for your Heavenly light.

There is an eternal light shining,

Jesus’s love shines on us tonight!
