“But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared.” Psalm 130:4
Forgiveness brings joy. And where there is forgiveness, there is peace. We are capable of doing wrong as result of our human nature. We are able to commit offenses that are too serious and might not let anyone forgive us BUT the bible makes it clear to us that God is not like us.
One of the reasons why people come to fear God and to respect Him is because He FORGIVES! God does not hold any grudges about what you and I have done through sinning against Him. He overlooks our wrongs and goes on to Forgive us when we acknowledge our sins.
Aren’t you grateful to be a child of God? I am so blessed to know God and I am sure you are too. God forgives no matter the level of your sins. He forgives because He loves you and do not want you to live in guilt, in shame or anguish over your sinful acts.
Do not condemn yourself to a corner and think that God will never forgive all your wrongful acts. You are not the one to decide for Him, to know what He thinks about you. He is God and He is love and for His love, He wholly forgives without holding back.
I implore you not to hold on today but to come to God and ask Him to forgive you. He will surely forgive you.
“For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” Isaiah 54:10
I don’t think there is any need to explain this verse to you. All I want you to do is praise God for His everlasting compassion that changes not. Glory be unto His name forever and ever, amen.
God is forever be praised. It is not to me that all glory should go to but to Him for He alone deserves all.
No matter the situations you are going through, I want you to be at peace and relax because He will help you out. He says that He will not leave you nor forsake you.
His name is Jehovah and forever will He be.
He says His compassion will not depart from you.
He assures you that His steadfast love will forever be with you.
And He promises you that His covenant of peace will stay on with you and your family and will never be removed.
Please join me to praise God! He is the King of kings, the Lord of Lords. He is the one who is worthy of all praises.
Blessed the Lord, oh my soul and all that is within me, bless His Holy name!
“For him that is joined to the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.” Ecclesiastes 9:4
Are you at the point of cursing yourself, wondering why life has remained unfair to you? Then I implore you to wake up!
Look around you and observe what is happening, then you will see how many people daily lost their lives. Majority of these peoples are wealthy, very rich but their riches had failed to buy them life.
Is this making sense to you? That you are alive is a blessing and you should be grateful. Instead of you hiding in a corner and mourning, why don’t you make use of that time to praise God?
There is hope for you! I repeat: there is extreme hope for you. You are alive, and that is a great achievement, which I want you to be forever grateful. As long as you are living, everything will be fine with you. It is just a matter of time.
There is hope for you!
“Bless the Lord, o my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefit—” Psalm 103:1-2
Each second, every minute, and hour, I bless the Lord for my life. I am hale and healthy, I am not crazy in the head, and the Lord blesses me in every endeavour of my life, so why can’t I praise Him?
If you look back into your life, into every detail of you, you will see that you have all reasons to thank God. It is of no use when you don’t appreciate what God done, and is doing in your life.
When you don’t show a genuine heart of gratitude, then it means you are absolutely ungrateful and that you don’t care about the presence of God in your life. I rather advice you to start appreciating the Lord for every thing you are.
Do you know that the more you praise God, the more your life becomes better and better? So what is your soul doing? Is your soul praising and blessing God?
Daily, I ask my soul to bless the Lord. My soul is the vital part of me. Without it, then I’m not here. When my soul is healthy, then all is well with me. This is why I pray and bless the Lord with my soul. I ask my soul to praise God, to worship Him, to honour Him and never forget its source and that is God.
My soul will never forget the benefits of the Lord, the grace of serving the Lord, and the abundant presence of the Lord in my life.
Tell me, why should my soul not appreciate the Lord, its source?
Bless the Lord, o my soul and please, please, and please, DO NOT FORGET ALL HIS BENEFITS!
“We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who commend themselves. But when they measure themselves with one another, they do not show good sense” 2 Corinthians 10:12 (NRSV)
Everyone has some elements of pride within, and these show up often in many cases, such as when we achieved something remarkable, and we feel the need to show off, so that those around us can see us.
This is good to some limit, I mean to some point, because when a show off becomes too much, it leads to sin and of course many nasty reactions.
To be happy about something is great BUT to take pride in showing off is very bad. You are a Christian, and for this, your joy must be centred in the Lord, and whatever achievement you have in life, you must boast in the Lord about this.
When you get to the point that you begin to commend yourself, saying that you do all and achieve all by your own power, then indeed, and just like the last words of the verse states, YOU HAVE NO GOOD SENSE.
Learn to boast in the Lord; do not commend yourself to an extreme. Show to God that to Him be all the adoration and honour. He is the one who raises you. It is not by your power or self that you achieved your goal or whatever.
Without God by your side, I bet you wouldn’t have make it this far, so do not be so ungrateful but comment God and avoid boasting. It is not for the child of God.
